Five Things

HELLO! Just wanted to drop in with a little update.  I actually had a OOTD photo shoot done, but there's a little camera issue.  As in, I can't find it sooooooooo. Here's a little glimpse in to my summer! Things I have been looking forward to, things I have been doing! Lots of merrymaking, my little chickens.

1. First of all, I am taking the end of the week off and going to ATL for an Aerosmith concert! I was raised listening to them and my mother instilled a deep, deep love in all of us.  Plus, last time we saw them- Steven Tyler held my sister during one song.  It was a big deal.  HUGE!

 2.  Phase 10! I do not know if you chickens are familiar with this addicting and competitive game, but it's pretty much a daily thing for me.  I work at a summer camp, okay? No judging.  We even took it to the bar.
3.  WEDDINGS! Summer time is just busting at the seams with people vowing their lives together.  One down, three to go!
That being said, I've never met a wedding reception that I didn't like! Mazel tov!

4. BIG BROTHER! It is my favorite show of the summer.  I don't know if you watch it or not, but it is the perfect mix of The Real World and Survivor that keeps me glued to the TV three times a week.  I don't know who my favorites are right now, it is too early in the game... Give it a shot, you won't be bored!

5.  The Lumineers.  I might be late to the game, and I usually am.  BUT I AM OBSESSED! This CD is constantly on repeat on my iPhone, in my car, evvvveeerrryyyywwhhhheeerrrreee.

So pray tell, what is on your top 5 list?  Anything you want to share, please do.
Hope you are staying cool and having a good summer!

Here I Am!

Hello dear sweet baby little chickens!  Time has really gotten away from this merrymaker and half of the summer has already flown by.  My merrymaking schedule is a little off kilter these days, as I am working M-F at a summer camp at the school where I teach.  My daily attire consists of tennis shoes, Nike shorts, and a mandatory mint green staff shirt.  Exciting stuff, eh?
I hope to get a few fancy posts in over the next few weeks, especially from my highly anticipated trip to Atlanta to see Aerosmith (!!!!!) and don't worry, I still wear lipstick and sparkles- I am just much too tired after chasing around grade school kids for hours on end to get dressed.

Here is a little glimpse in to my life lately according to my best friend Instagram. (@missbekah)
I am making sure to allow time for enjoying my summer, plenty of grilling out:
 Camp activities:

 Field Trips:
 Birthday parties:

 And shocker: I am a slave to summer programming:

I really miss my chickens, and I hope all of you are doing well!  What has everyone been up to? What is the hot gossip? Stay cool and cling to your A/C unit with a refreshing beverage.  Talk to you soon!

Navy Blue & Some Tunes

How have you been little chickens? I am returning from a week vastaycation off of work, where I frequented the pool (excuse the tan lines), caught up with old friends, and tons of time with my DVR.

I have a new obsession with navy blue accessories and clothes.  Mostly due to this amazing one shoulder find! One shoulder! Lace cutouts! Scalloped edges!
Yeah... I am just a little obsessed.
I wore this dress to catch an Memphis label artist, Amy LaVere, at a venue in Midtown Memphis.  It was such an amazing (and HOT HOT HOT) show!  Check back tomorrow for a glimpse in to this merrymaker's staycation :)
