Bites of My Life

This time of year, and especially this past week, had me thinking back to college and school in general. My roommate is a teacher and has her "first day of school" on Wednesday. I've been out of school for three years now (mind-blowing), but I still feel a sense of back-to-school, come early fall. 

With three trips to Norman, OK in the past week and a trip to Dallas to celebrate my first college friend, those four wild years seem to be heavy on my brain recently. Something I wouldn't want to go back to, but and crazy thankful for all the memories, lessons and friendships made. Anyone else reminisce this time of year?

-Back at Commonplace for a lunch with my oldest friend while she's in town post- Bar exam and pre- DC living! 
-Read this one in 3 days. If you went through recruitment, this book is a hilarious dramaticized, yet accurate depiction of what goes on in the greek system.
-Lunch board is B A C K! couldn't find figs in the store yet, so opted for these cherry plums from TJ's. Taste like a plum but have the pit and similar size of a cherry.
-KKG till we DIE. Back at our favorite house for Alumni Night!
-Okie Southern Salad recipe got posted last week. Loved how this summer salad turned out.
-Popped up and ready to shop! Check out these two entrepreneur friends of mine! Earrings and orchids, take your pick.
-Detox tea, sleep well spray and my book of the week. Sleeping gooood these days.
-Always thankful when we get the group back together! Especially when we get to celebrate our Marge!
-Cutest two, soon to say I Do!


P.S. In the midst of my reading frenzy, I created a Goodreads account, follow me!

Bites of My Life

Let's just skip to the weekend shall we, because it trumped last week. I left for Houston, Friday, for my long time "blogger besties" wedding. It's funny to think we truly met on the internet, but it was a testament that you can make friends anywhere. Molly and I found each other on the web during college through our blogs. With noticeable similarities we became virtual friends. With just being a state apart, opportunities like Austin City Limits and OU/Texas weekends led us to meet up in person. A few other times like our BB Dallas weekend and my stay at AirMB kept our friendship going. 

Molly's big day finally arrived and I couldn't have been more excited to be included. A stay and spend with my great friend/Houston host/plus one, Claire, made the weekend even better. (Claire and I were set up freshman year to be roommates and have been friends ever since). We both mutually love homemade matchas, health food, fitness and silk scarves ;) We dined at Emmaline, Juice Land, Tiny Boxwoods and then had the best wedding food I've ever heard/seen/eaten at Molly's reception. Molly and William's wedding was jaw drop worthy and the most beautiful wedding I've ever seen. Not to mention extremely fun. 

Here's to starting the week on a weekend hight and hoping it gives me motivation to get Monday...

-A green salad with lot's of avocado and grilled chicken. My lunch as of late thanks to The Jones Assembly.
-Lights, camera, action for a fun photoshoot with The Social Order crew.
-Craving tomatoes, as I should be since they are perfectly in season right now. I've been buying a bunch of vine ripened tomatoes and chopping to put in salads or thinly slicing and topping with everything but the bagel seasoning for a snack while I cook dinner.
-Wheels up to H-Town for #MollyMadeASlamDunc. Also, I love traveling by myself, anyone else?
-Hi from Houston! 
-Walked, juiced, worked out, ate, shopped and more all around town with Claire!
-Best friends make the best plus ones. 
-To the Duncans!
-My contribution to our Sunday night potluck. Recipe is saved in my "bites" highlight on instagram.
