{Weekend At A Glance}

Morning Peeps! I thought I would share with you a few pics of my weekend:
Weekend at a glance
1. Playing around with my glasses and sporting the nerdy-chic vibe.

2. I have experienced a weight loss plateau for about 5 weeks now, and last week I was almost in tears that I gained again - but short of quitting, I decided to switch things up by changing what I ate (tried the WW Simply Filling Program, instead of tracking points) and this week - I LOST 3.4lbs for a total of 31.6 lbs down! BOOM!

3. I rewarded myself by purchasing this dress at J.Crew - it will definitely help me through my transition. Thanks Andrea for the 20% discount coupon!!!

4. On Saturday, me and the girls went to see The Artist - and let me tell you, I haven't seen all of the Oscar-nominated films yet, but I want this movie to win. I was a little hestitant on going to see it because it's a silent film, but it was one of the most entertaining, lovely, and brilliant movies I've seen in a long time. Go see it!!! Another Oscar nominated movie you should see is Midnight in Paris (it's available via redbox now) - if you love the 20s, ah-mazing flapper dresses and vintage hats, Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams, and Woody Allen films - then you'll LOVE this movie.

5. After dinner we went to Calavera to chow down on some empanadas - and if you're in the Raleigh area (or plan to visit in the near future) I beg you to go! I had the black bean and sweet potato, and the Mexican picadillo with ground beef, tomatoes, potatoes, onion, and green chili. Delicioso!

6. Sunday I did a little bit of work and then spent the whole day making your Valentine gifts, and then of course watched the Super Bowl: here are my favorite commercials : this (duh) and this (you didn't see nuthin)! If you didn't sign up for my Valentine giveaway....well there's always next year, lol! For those that did, I think you'll love everything (I do!) - I'll be Instagraming hints of the gifts this week.

PS. The most important thing that happened this weekend is my sister Kendra GOT ENGAGED while at the Taj Mahal in India. I'm sure she'll be blogging about it soon - but in the interim you can check out her travels, thus far, by clicking here! Sooo exciting!!!

Enjoy your day loves!


  1. Way to go, girl! I just started a weight-loss plan and I am down 4 lbs and feeling great! I may need to go buy myself that dress... love it! Love your updated "about me" photo, that skirt is... MAJOR!

    1. Thank you Jess and congratulations on your weight loss. It's definitely not easy, but so worth it in the end. I have a feeling the dress is going to be my new fave - there's sooo much you can do with it!

  2. Those empanadas look yummy and the striped dress is too cute.

    1. Believe me they were - I'm already planning the next time I get to go!!!

  3. Congrats on the weight loss Jess, that is amazing! Loving the nerd glasses, so chic.

    1. Thanks Meghan!!! Funny story about the nerd glasses - I've actually had them for a while but they never fit my face right as they sat right on my cheeks and left an indention. After a little weight loss, they fit perfectly!
