Wow, I've heard so many good things about the Hunger Games movie, I seriously need to get to the movie theater ASAP. Currently trying to think of a way to con N into seeing the movie with me, but after he watched Twilight, I owe him about 15 million man movies. Twilight = not worth a man movie trade.

Oh well, I'll have to figure out a way, even if it means I go by myself - it has to happen!

Hope everyone has a good Monday!

Scout Bags

Currently loving these scout bags:

These are great for weekend getaways, desktop storage options, even a smaller gym bag - or you could just stick to using these awesome bags for groceries and picking up things while you're out.

Just need to figure out how to narrow it down to just one bag...or two.

Off to London

Tomorrow I'm heading to the UK for a little bit. It's for work, but hoping to sneak in sometime to see a few touristy spots like:

Tower of London:

Buckingham Palace:

Of course Harrods, which apparently is really close to my Hotel:

Hope everyone has a good weekend!

This past weekend I went up to Maine with some friends for a little snowboarding at Sugarloaf! The conditions were fantastic and there was plenty of snow that allowed over 100 different trails to be open.

We rented this bad boy from enterprise - isn't it cute? Totally a cute hamster car from that commercial:

A view from the mountain:

Our lodging:

For lunch we headed into the Widowmaker for some delicious burgers and a few cold beers!

Then we headed back out for a few more runs before the last lift, however, I wish I stopped after lunch...more on that later.

Hope everyone had a good weekend!

Toms Ballet Flats

NICE!! Toms came out with cute flats! These are definitely my style!

Image found on this cute blog

These Toms are very reasonably priced, come in cute fun prints AND knowing that every pair bought, another goes to a child in need.

Happy Valentines Day!

I hope everyone has a wonder Valentines day! I recently just saw a news clip on 'what women expect for valentines day' - and the answer?! are you kidding me? That's ridiculous if you ask me. I think this holiday is a bit silly, but all I ask is a little something to celebrate the holiday.

Personally, I think anything that is bought needs to be under $50 for sure. Like a little bracelet, some flowers, something small.

Some ideas:

Or this Nashelle Mini Heart Charm thats only $28.

Even flowers can get insane - a dozen roses for the oh-so-affordable price of $100 (or more), uhh...still too much if you ask me. A small boutique of flowers (not necessarily roses) would make me happy as a clam.

Then either go to a restaurant or what N and I did last year - make dinner. I think its more personal, and a lot more fun to pick out a good recipe, make it together while enjoying a good glass of wine.
