summertime margarita dates.

Mikey and I have really enjoyed this first week off of school. We started True Blood and are already on season 3...in one week! We're totally committed when we start new shows. It's quite sad. 
Also, you'd think summer would be the worst to begin binging on enchiladas and tacos, but we've been eating a ton of Mexican food and enjoying some margaritas before dinner time, which means I get sleepy by about 4 p.m. (Granny alert!) 
Mikey came up to me when I finished getting dressed today and said, "You really like that hat, don't you?" I knew he was hinting at my overkill wear of it. But I love hats, more so this one. It comes in handy when I don't want to do my hair...which is damn near every day. Perhaps it's time to look for more bowler hats in different colors. If y'all spy a good one, feel free to email me the link :)

I almost forgot I had these shoes!
I want to share my enthusiasm for a bit. Mikey will be a college graduate after this summer! He starts school back up in seven days and only needs two more classes to get his BA. I'm SO proud of him! I'm also happy I was able to convince him to walk the stage, as he initially thought it wasn't "a big deal" to do so. I almost had a heart attack. After all the years it took us to finally get our butts back into school, it is a MEGA BIG deal to walk that stage. I can't wait to see it happen. And Lordy, I can't wait till it's my turn, but I still have about two years. Blah.

  1. Tell him to quit hatin' lol I'm that way when I find something I really really like, I won't stop wearing it until it is literally worn out.

    And tell Mikey it's so silly not to walk, it's such a huge accomplishment and he should be so proud! Nothing wrong with celebrating your accomplishments.

    As for 2 years of school left, yucky. Take it semester by semester and try not to look at the whole grand scheme of things.

    1. Yeah, I am taking it pretty well. I actually love school (never thought I'd say it!), but it can get overwhelming with all the assignments and blah blah blah. However, seeing A's and 100's makes it all worth it. And really, every semester seems to go by in a blur, so I know I'll be graduating before I know it, too. :)

  3. Oh man congratulations to Mikey! What a huge deal! I'm kind of like him in that I don't think its a big deal, but I'm also kind of glad you pretty much made him do it! I just think its really sweet of you to recognize it as a huge thing! I can't wait to see your graduation pictures in a couple of years!

    And how hot are you in that hat and those heels!? THOSE HEELS. Are crazy : ) But I love the hat. I'm glad you're wearing it every day!

    1. Thanks, girl!! The shoes are pretty bad ass, I must say. Especially the heel. I'd just forgotten about them because they're more of a bring-it-out-when-it's-summer shoe and it's always so fudging cold up here. :)

  4. Oh and I forgot to tell you that I love that lipstick on you! I think my newest shade is almost the exact same as this. Its so fun!

    1. Oh, I'm glad you noticed the lipstick i.e. that I'm STILL wearing it! haha I'm so in love with this shade. I'm glad you got one similar. It's the perfect shade for the season!

  5. Sounds like your summer is off to an awesome start. I really want to start watching True Blood - I watched part of the first season but watched it at a friends house and don't have cable. Did you buy the dvds or are they online? I also get consumed in shows once I start them. Eating a bunch of mexican food and sipping on margaritas sounds like heaven to me. I love your bowler hat! The other day I was wishing I had one, haha. Also - killer shoes. I am glad you talked Mikey in to walking - it is a really big deal!

    1. I know that the show is offered on dvds through Netflix, but we actually watch it on an app (from the Xbox) called HBOGO. Our friend bought the app since he (nor we) have HBO and he just gave us his password for it so we use it everyday and can watch any and every HBO show - it's freaking awesome! Haha freeloaders. But oh, you need to watch True Blood. It's sooo sexy and thrilling. I seriously can't stop daydreaming about vampires. It's ridick.

  6. First off I seriously need to email and will do so asap :)

    Secondly I really like your hat. I think more people should embrace hats. They add a touch of whimsy to an outfit.

    Thirdly congrats to Mikey and good for you for convincing him to walk. It is SO a big deal!

    1. :) I'm glad I'm not the only one. I mean, don't get me wrong, I truly love having my hair done, but I just hate doing it. There's so much to work with, even when it's short. Blah, it's easier to hide it under a rock, err a hat. Hehe

  11. Christopher Robin and I are the exact same way when it comes to new shows! You new heels are AMAZING!!! I have been such a fan of IC for so long! Wish they were a little more affordable though, but adorable isn't always affordable! =D Tell Mikey congrats on the upcoming grad for us!

    1. Hahaha Fresh Prince! That is awesome! I actually just started re-watching Saved By the Bell. It totally takes me back to being a tween haha I love embracing the shows of my time and I think it's super great that you do as well. I'd love to have a bloggers night where we drank wine (you know, grown up things) and watched all the shows we loved in the 80's and 90's (our inner child celebration). Sounds like so much fun to me!

  19. Congratulations on Mikey's impending graduation :). I love your shoes by the way! If I drink in the afternoon I am always sleepy towards the end of the day. It's why I hate going out drinking so much, because after a few hours I just want to go to bed. xo

    1. Hahaa I always get sleepy after drinking. That's why I tell my friends that we've got to be doing something or I'm just gonna pass out. I can't drink and then sit around someone's living room and then everyone decides we should go somewhere. I get too tired sitting around waiting. Lol
      Thanks for your congrats to Mikey :)

  22. You know something sad? In my life, I have never had a margarita. I always want to. They always look so appetizing and I've tried everything else….but never a margarita. I need to get out more.

    1. WHa???? Never had a margarita? This is absolutely mind boggling. haha ;) They're super yummy. Next to wine, they're the only drink that I could have during the day (with lunch perhaps) and not feel a lick of guilt.
