22 Things You Shouldn't Say To Someone Who Doesn't Drink

If you read my blog regularly enough, then I'm sure you've seen me mention a few times that I don't drink.   I used to, but don't any more.  It's just not for me and I've made the decision to not drink anymore.  I found this article on Facebook from Esquire Online called 22 Things You Should Never Say to Someone Who Doesn't Drink.  I've gotten quite a few of them and they are in Pink. Check it out. Some of them are quite funny.  

1. "You're so uptight." I may like to be in control, but just because I don't want a beer doesn't mean I can't relax or don't like fun.
2. "Come on, live a little." I am! Alcohol isn't the only way to do so.
3. "All I want is to see you drunk." Sorry to crush your dreams, but that's not happening. And if that's all you want in life, it's time to aspire for more.
4. "I'm going to get you to drink." No, you're not, the same way I'm not going to get you not to drink. People get to make their own decisions, and trying to change mine on alcohol will be a failed endeavor.
5. "Is it for religious reasons?" Whether it is or isn't, I don't think my refusing a beer should prompt an interrogation on my lifestyle.
6. "How are you doing this right now sober?" You're actually asking me how I'm talking to people at a party sober? Really? Surely you have too at some point. I don't know when this became a feat. I've actually had someone ask me how I socialize without a drink. SERIOUSLY? That's just sad!
7. "You must think I'm such a mess." No, I don't think you are such a mess because you are drinking and I'm not.
8. "Aren't you curious?" No. If I were curious, I'd get myself a drink.
9. "I will get you a drink!" Gee, thanks, but save your $10 or however much that overpriced cocktail is.
10. "Do you think you're better than us?" Alcohol's a beverage, not a measure of moral superiority (or inferiority). So no, I just don't want to drink.
11. "You must hate being places where people are drunk." If I hated being somewhere, I'd leave. You would be amazed at how often this happens.  I have friends I haven't seen or heard from in almost a year because of this. Such close minded people.
12. "So what do you do then if you don't drink?" The same thing you do minus a beer in hand: go to bar, clubs, parties, etc. You can still go out and party drinking water. Dude, I can still do stuff!
13. "Don't you feel like you're missing out?" If I felt like I was missing out, I'd drink. Plus, you tell me stories of how hungover you are the next day, and it sounds pretty miserable, so I'm happy to pass on that.
14. "How old are you? Are you even 21?" It's flattering you think I look young, but yes, my ID does say I'm over 21, and yes, it's real. And if high school parties are any indicator, drinking isn't all too revealing of age anyway.
15. "What? Are you scared of it?" I'm just not interested actually, but it's scary how intense your pressuring is getting.
16. "Oh, we didn't invite you because you don't drink and we thought you'd be bored." That's pretty harsh and untrue. If I felt that way, I wouldn't come, but I actually wanted to see you because you're my friends (so act like them).
17. "Your not drinking makes it hard for me to relate to you." Try to get to know me, and I'm pretty sure you'd relate somewhere.
18. "You must have so much dirt on everyone, watching us sober." Of course, my favorite hobby is to collect blackmail and is the sole reason I don't drink. Actually, I'm not judging. Please stop judging me. Exactly...believe it or not, watching you get drunk and act stupid isn't fun for me.
19. "You must be so against this stuff." Just because I don't want to have a drink doesn't means I'm against alcohol entirely and think it's the worst thing. It's wonderful for people who enjoy it. I just happen not to.
20. "I don't drink that much usually! Really!" You don't have to justify your drinking to me just because I'm not. But you obviously feel like you drink too much..that's what hearing this tells me.
21. "But really, why don't you? Won't you? Please?" You can keep asking, but the answer is going to remain no. I'm just going to get more annoyed when you say it.
22. "Don't be lame!" Oh no! The threat of being uncool! Grab me five shots pronto! (But really don't.) I think I get this one the most. Mostly from coworkers...they can suck it :)

You still think us sober people are lame?  Check out some hot celebs below that don't drink either courtey of Your Daily Scoop.

The Last June Sunday Social

Today is the last Sunday in June.  Can you believe that Tuesday is July already? Crazy that half of 2014 is officially behind us.  Well, to start the week off let's have a Sunday Social ~

Social Sunday

{one} What was your college major?  Did you ever change majors?
When went away to college in NOVA I was Undecided at first.  I was in some 'major' denial (haha no pun intended).  About 2 months into my first semester I finally changed my major to Theater.  

{two} What is the best purchase you've made lately?
Hmmm...I did go a little crazy at Barnes & Noble yesterday.  I bought the new Women's Health magazine. two new books, a new planner, and a new journal.  I love planners and journals.

{three} What is something we still don't know about you?  And Go...!
I keep my apartment and office really cold.  As my brother would say, "it's perfect hoodie temperature."  If you already knew that...my bad! Haha :)

{four} What is your favorite Holiday?
If you took a look at my Holiday Pinterest Board then you know the answer is....

It's almost time for one!!!  This one is too cute!!
You guessed it, Christmas.

{five} What is the first thing you do when you wake up?
Definitely snooze my phone alarm a million times! I tend to check my social media accounts.  Eventually I get my butt out of bed to get ready for the day.

Last Friday In June

My mom says that when she reads my High Five For Fridays she feels like it's a repeat of what we've talked about this week.  Well, for mom it is...haha! But for you guys, it's all brand new.  Unless you follow me on Instagram, then you might have seen some of this already.  Anywho...let's get on with our Friday, shall we?

On Saturday I got to take part in the 1st birthday of a sweet little girl, Baby K.  She wasn't feeling very well, but she was a trooper through it all! And oh so cute :) Happy Birthday little girl!

On Sunday I went to my first Washington Nationals game of the season.  They WON!!!!!!! They beat the Atlanta Braves 4-1...awesome!

On Wednesday my dad was in town so Jacob and I had dinner with dad.  Dad was staying at Jacob's so we all met there.  Jacob got stuck at work so Dad and I hung out for a bit and watched TV. Oh, and I was attacked with Love from Sir Butters.  The three of us had dinner at this cute little beach shack and then I went home. Jacob and Dad were planning on watching a scary movie later on.

Yesterday a co-worker passed on some free passes to a screening of the new movie Earth to Echo (it comes out in theaters July 2nd).  It was super cute. It's a great movie to take your kids to.  It reminded me a little bit of Goonies, ET, Short Circuit, and Super 8 all rolled into 1.  The neighborhood of three best friends that grew up together (they are probably 13 years old) is being threatened by a construction company wanting to build a massive freeway right in the middle of it.  The night before some of them are supposed to move away they decide to have one last adventure.  Very Goonies, don't you think? :)  Their last night together turns into an adventure they will never forget!  If you have little kids, I think they would love it. It's not scary at all and it's a lot of fun.

Plus the little creature guy, Echo, is super cute and I really want one :)

I got my Netflix back!!!!!!!! Marina and I are going to be having an Orange is the New Black binge marathon next week and I realized that Season 4 of Pretty Little Liars is available to stream, so I'll be watching that all weekend! WooHoo!

Have a fabulous weekend!

Do you ever think about how things used to be way back when?  I mean, before there were cell phones and computers.  When you had to write someone a letter and put a stamp on it to keep in touch with long distance friends.  When you had to call someone on the house phone to say hello.  When a guy had to walk up to you to ask you out? When you passed notes in class, because there wasn't any text messaging? Oh those were the good old days!  Sometimes I miss those days.  VHS and cassette tapes!

You know I love my country music, right? Well, country songs are good at telling it how it is!  Rascal Flatts has a song called Mayberry that really tells how it is.  Take the first few lines for example ~

Sometimes it feels like this world is spinning faster that it did in the old days
So naturally we have more natural disasters from the strain of a fast pace
Sunday was the day of rest | Now it's one more day for progress
And we can't slow down cause more is best  | It's all an endless process

Seriously!  It's all so true.  Do you remember the movie That Thing You Do?  It's one of my favorites! There's a scene in the movie where the dad is looking at the competition's add in the newspaper and sees that they are open on Sunday.  He makes a comment about how a family should have to stay open on Sundays. I agree!

Miranda Lambert has a song out now called Automatic and it rings so true to how I feel about my own generation and everything that we take for granted.  Some of my favorite lines are ~

If you had something to say | You'd right it on a piece of paper
Then you'd put a stamp on it and they'd get it three days later
Let's pull the windows down | Windows with the cranks
Come on let's take a picture | The kind you gotta shake
Hey, whatever happened to waitin' your turn | Doing it all by hand
'Cause when everything is handed to you |It's only worth as much as the time put in
It all just seemed so good the way we had it | Back before everything became automatic

What I Wore ~ Curls

I have had curly hair my whole life. I get it from my mom.  I can't even begin to tell you how many products I have been through over the years.  Some products make my hair too crunchy, some too soft, some frizzy. It's just a big mystery!  

I'm here to tell you that I have found an awesome curl product and it's not an expensive salon brand either! It's not a foam-y mousse, but a creamy one. It's almost like whipped cream.  When I use my diffuser to dry my hair it comes out fluffy and curly.  The best part is that it lasts all day! It's only $2.89 at Target. Great deal!

This is my second favorite curl product.  It comes out as a liquid, but then foams up in the palm of your hand. It's really good and I do like it, but being Paul Mitchell, it's a little expensive.

Don't use this one! It's awful. I didn't realize this when I bought it, but it has salt water in it.  I guess it's supposed to give you that beach wave look... It just made my hair so much more frizzy than it already is.

Feast for a Finale

I have become a HUGE Game of Thrones fan. Largely in part because of my brother.  He's been watching it from the beginning and when I finally started watching it he was super excited.  The season four finale aired on June 15th and my brother had a big bbq - Lots of Meat BBQ Extrav I Ganza -  to celebrate it.  What says Game of Thrones better than a lot of....

Pork Shoulder to be exact.

Let's start at the beginning.  I got to my brother's house before he did (he and some friends went rock climbing and I beat them back). I let myself in and got a great big welcome from Sir Butters.  Butters and I played outside for a little bit while we waited for Jacob and his friends.  I peaked around inside to see what Jacob had planned for dinner and that's when I saw the pork shoulder sitting in the fridge. Yummy!

When Jacob got to the house he wanted to take me for a ride in his new jeep.  Well, new to him. It's a '95, but in really good shape.  He's already improved the sound system and is going to put some monster tires on it soon.  The jeep is in really nice shape a lot of fun to ride in.

 Now, on to the BBQ!  Jacob barbecued the pork while we all hung out and played Heads Up on his buddy's iPhone. Jacob killed any subject that had to do with animals and I dominated the Super Stars & Blockbuster categories.  Butters could smell the pork sitting on the grill and Jacob gave him a peak.

There's always room for play time.
Once the pork was done they threw on some veggies and I even helped make some coleslaw. I'm not a very fast chopper, so Jacob finished it.  By the time the food was ready we were all checking our phones constantly to make sure that we didn't miss the start of the show.  We ate up (no utensils allowed...Jacob's rules in the fashion of Game of Thrones).

Once the show started no one was allowed to talk.  If they did someone would yell out VIOLATION! Jacob turned all of the lights off and the surround sound up....let it begin... I can't wait until Season 5!

Happy Sunday Social!

Happy Sunday! How has everyone's weekend been?  I hope you all have had a wonderful week and are enjoying your weekend tremendously.  I haven't done a Sunday Social in FOREVER! I'm totally in the mood for it today.  The questions for today are a lot of fun.

Social Sunday

{one} What's your favorite scary movie?
I LOVE scary movies.  I especially love really well done scary movies.  My brother and I went to see The Exorcism of Emily Rose when that was in theaters back in 2005/2006 and that was really good.  The Conjuring was fantastic! Those would probably rank top list for me when it comes to scary movies.  There's a new one coming out with Eric Bana called Deliver Us From Evil and it looks super creepy!

{two} What is your favorite weird TV show you think no one else watches?
I've become a HUGE fan of Orphan Black.  It has a massive cult following, but none of my friends watch it.  I have yet to actually meet someone that watches this amazing show.  Too bad...you guys are missing out!!!!!!!! Season 2 just ended last night and it was awesome!

{three} What is the song you can sing all the words to without any music?
Just one? There are sooo many songs that I can do this with!  Let's see... MmmBob by Hanson, Seasons of Love from 'Rent,' pretty much any song in Glee.

{four} What is your favorite book to re-read?
There is only one book that I've read more than once and that is Molly Donnelly, by Jean Thesman. I originally read it when I was in middle school, then again as an adult.  I love this story.  Check it out on Amazon for yourself.

{five} What is the one website you visit more times a day than others?
Definitley IMDB!

Have a great week and don't forget to follow me on Bloglovin' and Instagram to keep up with my ongoings :)

Thank the Lord It's Friday

Happy Friday!  I am so exhausted I can't even begin to tell you.  As I mentioned last week I was in Arizona for most of the week for a Kimpton National Sales Conference.  I flew out of Washington, DC and as I was flying in the sky I saw my apartment from the plane ~ So cool!

{one} It was my first trip to Arizona. It's a really pretty state. Oh and it's H-O-T! Granted there's no humidity, but it's still hot as all get out.  It took me back to my days in Los Angeles. I'm very grateful that we were inside with the AC for most of the day.  When we at breakfast, broke for breaks/lunch and had our events in the evening we were outside. The weather was fantastic while we were there.

{two} I don't even know where to begin to describe this event.  There were 407 people from Kimpton gathered together for the sales conference.  It's absolutely amazing the kind of meeting event that this company can put together.  Kimpton sure does know how to put on a show!  Giant screens, amazing center pieces, and awards!  My region includes Washington, DC, Virginia, and Baltimore.  The Baltimore team won an award!!! I can't remember which one, but YAY!
(from top left)
Better.Faster.Strong | Team B-More Wins! | Crowd of 400 | The Center Piece at my table...lots of M&Ms

{three} Oh and our evenings...woohoo! They were crazy. The first night was a Studio 54 themed party.  There were crazy dressed people and go-go dancers and yes, that's a horse in the lobby!  The second night was a Lolla-Pool-ooza party. Rock 'n' Roll party by the pool. Crazy amounts of food, fun activities (I got a fake tattoo and pink hair!), and an giant Ice Luge & Bar in the shape of a guitar!
(from top left to right starting at top)
The pool at night during our events. So pretty! | Horse in Lobby | Ice Luge/Bar | My Region & Team | Best Wontons EVER | There's a duckie in my drink | Me & Elvis.

{four} Let's talk about the hotel I stayed at ~ Fire Sky Resort & Spa. I was given a King room and this room was HUGE! I think it was the size, if not larger, than my apartment.  I had a massive walk in closet and a balcony.  The bed was super comfortable. I could have slept there for all three days. The Housekeeping staff was wonderful.  The housekeeper who had my room left me makeup towels in the bathroom. So sweet and thoughtful! Yesterday morning I had breakfast in the restaurant and ordered a waffle. DELICIOUS!

{five} This girl right here is fabulous! We've become great friends and a great co-workers.  This trip was tons of fun and having her there made it all the better. Love you girl!

Update: June Body Challenge

Remember those infamous jeans?

Yeah, those jeans! I was rearranging my closet space and drawers and going through clothes. Guest what I found. MORE JEANS!!! I couldn't believe it. Two pairs of size 6 Modern Straight from The Loft, one pair of size 6 Curvy Skinny from The Loft and one pair of size 6 Signature Boot cut from somewhere :)  I forgot that I even had Skinny jeans! I couldn't believe it.  Right now I'm wearing a size 10. Getting back to that size 6 means dropping two sizes.  I can do that, right? Totally!  All it takes is some commitment to my health and fitness.

And I found these beautiful dresses that definitely don't fit.

When I first began my June Body Challenge on June 1st I weighed in at 158.  It's been two weeks and I am now 156, so that's 1 pound per week. That's normal and healthy.  I know that it will take time to get where I want to be. My doctor wants me down around 140 and I just want to fit into those size 6 skinny jeans. For my birthday I'd like to get into the dress that's in the front. It's purple and sexy.  The last time I wore it was when I was living in Los Angeles in 2009.  A fancy birthday dinner the end of August with my friends would be awesome and fun.  So, skinny jeans and the purple dress.  When I can get back into those, then I'll be feeling good.

Amber over at Mr. Thomas & Me posted about her weight loss journey back in November.  She made some really good discoveries about her health after losing 17 pounds.  Some of those things I didn't even think of! For example ~ how being 17 pounds lighter feels on her shins and knees.  The only thing I keep thinking about is my stomach and getting rid of the "bulge." I didn't even think about me knees.

I have a problem where my knees pop all the time and hurt all the time. My doctor has be taking glucosamine to help with it. Dr. Oz (10 Reasons to Lose Just 10) says that every extra pound is really three extra pounds on your joints.  So if I am to lose 16 more pounds, then that's like taking 48 pounds off of my knees!

So besides my not-so-little bulge, there's my knees to think about. Weight effects my heart health too - cholesterol is a huge aspect of this as is low blood pressure. I'm good on the blood pressure, but I know that my cholesterol could use some help.  Dr. Oz says ~ Nearly half of Americans have too much visceral fat, the abdominal fat that surrounds your internal organs, visible in their protruding bellies. The danger is this: visceral fat contains cells that release inflammation-causing chemicals in the body, which can cause memory loss and increase your chances of developing dementia.  This is where my not-so-awesome food choices come into play that are causing my bulge.  I could list off the foods that I eat that I know I shouldn't eat, but I'm not going to do that.

Lots to think about and lots to do! Pump it!

I think Lucy Hale and I would be friends.

Have you ever felt that there's a certain celebrity out there that you just know you could be best buds with?  I never really thought that until I read this week's US Weekly.

I didn't know who Lucy Hale was until Pretty Little Liars.  My best friend Lindsay got me into the show and I became a huge fan right away.  I follow the girls from the show on Twitter and Instagram and that's how I found out that Lucy was working on a country music album. I love my country music!  Her album just came out and it's fantastic!  I bought the US Weekly for the Miranda Lambert article, but was pleasantly surprised with their segment "25 Things You Didn't Know About Me" featuring Lucy Hale.

Here are some of her 25 things that I can totally relate to:

#4 ~ "I'm obsessed with teeth. I have teeth crushes on people."
#21 ~ "Eyebrows are kind of my thing."
These are two things (three if you count my hair) that I am totally obsessed with when it comes to appearances.  They are the first things that I notice about other people and myself.

#9 ~ "Although I play a liar on TV, I try to live a pretty honest life. I get anxiety just from telling a white lie."
Totally! Honesty is so important in life and in relationships.

#11 ~ "I got to bed thinking about my morning coffee."
In my case it would be my morning diet coke.

#14 ~ "You many not hear my Tennessee accent when I talk, but you can definitely hear it when I sing."
Same here.  I have a pretty neutral accent when I'm speaking.  Country music is the easiest genre for me to sing, because it comes naturally to me. When I go home, watch Nashville or Hart of Dixie, or spend time with Lindsay my accent definitely comes out :)

#15 ~ "I swear, ranch dressing was my secret weapon. Ranch is always the right answer."
I discovered ranch dressing in the sixth grade. Of course, I already knew it as a salad dressing, but putting it on french fries or chicken? WHAT??? Amazing!

#18 ~ "I'm usually drawn to and attracted to musicians."
Bad boys, what can I say? I've definitely had my heart broken by a few.

#20 ~ "I want to dye my hair a crazy color."
I don't know about crazy, but part of me really wants to go back to blonde one day.  I'll do it again. I'll surprise you!

#25 ~ "I used to have a crush on one of my castmates...."
Um, hello, it happens. I think I've had a crush on someone in each show I've ever done. It's called a Show-mance. You work so closely with these other people and acting brings out all sorts of emotions.

Can you imagine a better celebrity friendship? What about you? Any celebrities that you just know you'd click with? Tell me all about it.

Update: 31 Days of Spending Zero

So..... yeah! I've decided that I will be tacking on an additional 15 days to my 31 Days of Spending Zero.  Why, you ask? Because I basically sucked at it this month so far. I did really well the first week and then it all went out the window.  Here's a reminder of what/where I wasn't supposed to spend my money ~

List of things I will definitely be cutting out:
~ Eating at Restaurants - I did order pizza one night, I got breakfast at a deli the other day, and I ordered Chinese with a friend one night too.
~ 7-11 in the morning with Erin - I definitely went here at least twice.
~ Whole Foods during lunch (or ever) - Nope!
~ Clothing - I bought 1 shirt for the National Sales Week I'm attending for work, so that's okay.
~ Hobbies - Nope
~ Entertainment - movies :( - Guilty! I got snacks at 'Maleficent' and then went to see 'The Fault in Our Stars' and got snacks there too. No Redbox, though, so that's something!
~ Toiletries (no hair color...eek!) - Nope!
~ Home Decor - Nope!
Commitments that I have already planned that I will require a bit of extra spending:
~ 06/06 Dinner and  Movie with my Brother - Jacob paid for everything - Thanks bro!
~ 06/13 Bestie Farewell - we ate in and chilled at my place, so no extra money was spent.

Let's get real people! At this very moment in time I have $0. I'm only making it because of my credit card right now :(  I'm in Scottsdale on my work trip, so my meals and travel are all taken care of by the company at the convention. I get paid on Friday and this will be my first paycheck since my promotion. I have a lot of medical bills from my LEEP that was in April as well as that random trip to the ER in January.  I just got a letter from my apartment building and I have to sign a new lease so my rent will be going up.  AWESOME-SAUCE! I guess my raise came at a really good time, seeing as how my rent is going up in August.

When I get back from Scottsdale things are going to change around here where money is concerned.  I need to get out of debt (finally) and save some money. I'm going to sign a 9 month lease, which will put me in this apartment until May 1st.  That's plenty of time to prepare for a bigger place with a bigger rent. I'm growing out of my Studio Apartment and am totally ready for a One-Bedroom.

Let's save some money, shall we?

Friday the 13th...WooHoo!

Hello Friday! And Friday the 13th of all days. I know that the number 13 gets a bad rap, but I like the number 13. Why did it become "unlucky" anyways?  Well, I Wikipedia-ed it :)  

~ One theory states that it is a modern amalgamation of two older superstitions: that 13 is an unlucky number and that Friday is an unluckyday.
~ In numerology, the number twelve is considered the number of divine organizational arrangement or chronological completeness, as reflected in the twelve months of the year, twelve hours of the clock day, the twelve deities of Olympus, twelve tribes of Israeltwelve Apostles of Jesusthe 12 successors of Muhammad in Shia Islam, twelve signs of the Zodiac, the 12 years of the Buddhist cycle, etc., whereas the number thirteen was considered irregular, transgressing this completeness. There is also a superstition, thought by some to derive from the Last Supper or a Norse myth, that having thirteen people seated at a table results in the death of one of the diners.
~ Friday has been considered an unlucky day at least since the 14th century's The Canterbury Tales,[5] and many other professions have regarded Friday as an unlucky day to undertake journeys or begin new projects.
~ Christians commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus on the Friday before Easter.

Very interesting! I like today, so there! It's the last work day of the week and I get to see my fabulous Best Friend tonight! I hope you all have a wonderful week.  This week felt particularly long, but it's finally the weekend. Here we go ~

On Friday I got to hang out with my brother.  We had dinner at this fun little Irish Pub and then went to see the new Tom Cruise movie, Edge of Tomorrow.  We had a great time.  Jacob was having some work done in his apartment due to some major flooding, but he needed to stop by and pick up a few things.  His life was centered among the kitchen...Literally! The work finished up late last weekend and he has been able to put his life back together!  You never really know how much stuff you have until it's confined to one space.

Talk about a "Throw-Back-Thursday!" I was going through some pictures and found this one from 2009.  I was living in Los Angeles at the time and there was a karaoke bar that I liked to frequent.  Mr. Belding was also a pretty common face at this bar. Oh, it is called Dimples and is across the street from the Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank.  If you're ever over there, then you should definitely stop in and sing a tune. Cheap drinks and fun people!

My coworker, Nay, was a little ircked with me that I didn't bring her back some coca-cola lip balm from vacation. Well, I found something even better for her!  She's a Pepsi drinker and when I was at Target I found Wild Cherry Pepsi Lip Balm. I had to buy it for her. I put it on her desk so she would see it when she got in on Monday and boy did she love it! Yay! Love you Nay!

Last night was our big client event at Donovan House.  The hotel was recently renovated and we wanted to show it off to our clients. One of the big draws of Donovan is the rooftop pool/bar.  Well, the weather was super icky and we were really worried about getting rained out.  The rain held out for us during the event and it ended up being pretty fun!  We had raffles and food and open bar for everyone.  Ro and I decided to take a selfie and our Director of Operations happened to be right behind us. We allowed him to photobomb :)

I'm getting ready for my first Work Trip Ever!!!!! I've never traveled for work before and I'm really excited.  I'll be in Arizona next week for our National Sales Meeting and it's going to be so much fun.  Oh, this pool is at the hotel I'll be staying at. Jealous? :)  There are themed parties (Studio 54 on Monday and Rock 'n' Roll by the Pool on Tuesday). Don't worry, I'll tell you all about it when I get back!

Have a great week everyone! I'm linking up with these fabulous ladies below for some Friday fun. Make sure to check them out. Oh and if you're not following me on Instagram (1hotredhd) or Twitter (@Looking2Stars), you totally should!
