Saddle Up!

I'm not gonna lie, I'm pretty excited about the adventure that lies ahead tonight. The one and only Ree Drummond aka The Pioneer Woman will be at the 25th annual Cattleman's Association Range Round Up tonight and tomorrow night at the State Fair Arena. Her family Ranch will be participating in the Rodeo and I'm hoping to get a glance and her and Marlboro man! My friend and wing man Allison will be going with and I'm hoping we get the chance to meet her. Maybe I'll even meet a cowboy!

Tickets are still available at Ticketmaster or you can buy tickets at the event which starts at 7:30 PM August 28th and 29th! Portions of the proceeds benefit Children's Miracle Network.

Where are my cowboy boots when I need them??

The Mother ship

This weekend I'm taking a well deserved road trip to Dallas with my Mama. I will be heading back to the mother ship, also known as Anthropologie. Several years ago I visited two dear high school friends in Washington D.C. We decided to head to Georgetown and do a little shopping. They are boys so needless to say they went their way and I went mine. I stumbled upon a little store named Anthropologie. It was love at first sight. Okay, maybe lust at first sight. That was the day my fashion sense matured and I became a woman, ha! I bought a few things and since then every time I make a trip to a big city I make a stop in to the mother ship. NYC...check, Chicago...check, Kansas City...check, Dallas...check (make that a double check once this weekend comes around). I haven't been to Anthropologie with Mama so she is going to see me in rare form. Besides hitting up the shop we are seeing family and watching Mama Mia. Dad is going to meet up with us Sunday and get some pool time in with family friends then hit up McGeehee's Catfish on the way home.

Anthroplogie, Mama Mia, and Catfish- the parents know a way to a girls heart :)

Shoes, Shoes, Shoes

Just one peek at J. Crews shoe collection and I'm in trouble. Good thing they don't sell shoes here at their OKC location. Here are a few of my fav's off their website. It doesn't hurt to look right?

Charlie Ruffled Suede Platform Mary Jane's $228

Classic, simple, chic and you can never go wrong with a pair of Mary Jane's. Respect the Mary Jane. Heck I may even name my first born Mary Jane because it will be a proven fact she'll be fabulous

Montebello Printed Calf hair Driving Mocs $268
I Love these. I love, love, LOVE. I have two pair of Kenzie mocs and they are staples in my fall wardrobe

Molly Satin Platform Peep Toes $250

I have a pair extremely similar to these from target. They are black peep toes with a gray heel and bow...perfection. You can dress this up for a night out or throw them on to wear to work with great trousers.

Jemma Jeweled Suede Platform Slingbacks $325

I'm loving the gray. I have a pair of gray nine west wedges and they can be worn with just about anything. I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that gray just may be the new black.

Till next time...

My kind of camping

As most of you know I'm not the camping type. A million years ago when I was a kid my parents and I went camping at lake Murray- we did the whole tent, sleep outside, cook with fire type of thing. We were sound a sleep in our tents when the Oklahoma weather began a brewin and we had to relocate to the car in fear of getting swept up by a tornado...true story. So, that ended that and haven't been camping since.

However, check out these pictures - this is my kind of camping. I came across these at Belle Maison- its Les Ormes campground in France! I could totally do this kind of camping!

Julie & Julia

This weekend I went and watched Julie & Julia with my good friend Allison over at Allioppe. We loved it! It stars Meryl Streep as Julia Child - she and her husband move to France and in order to occupy her time she enrolls in cooks classes at Le Cordon Bleu. She loves to cook and loves to eat even more! After graduating cooking school she begins her journey on writing a cook book and even more time tying to get it published. Stanley Tucci plays her husband and you can't help but fall in love with the adorable and hilarious couple! Intertwined in this plot in the story of Julie played by Amy Adams, a lowly cubicle worker who wanted to find herself and did so by cooking her way through Julia Child's cookbook. Her story shows her quest to complete the task of cooking 524 recipes in 356 days while writing all about the journey in her blog. I don't want to give too much away, but encourage you all to go see it!

Tracy Porter dishes

Yesterday The Pioneer Woman aka Ree Drummond gave away 8 place settings of these dishes. Unfortunately I didn't win :( I will one day! I really want to win a mixer. She gives one out about 3 or 4 times a month. One day, One day.

Anyway back to the dishes. They are called "Vivre" by Tracy Porter. You can check out other fabulous dishes and other super cute items on her website.

Don't say I didn't warn you. Her stuff is seriously so stinking cute!

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend and don't do anything I wouldn't do :)

Late Night Addiction

So, I have a little bit of a tv addiction. I can not get enough of house hunters hosted by Suzanne Whang. Its at various times on HGTV and I usually catch the 12am episode right before bed every night. "House Hunters takes viewers behind the scenes as individuals, couples and families learn what to look for and decide whether or not a home is meant for them. Focusing on the emotional experience of finding and purchasing a new home, each episode shows the process as buyers search for a home." In Linzy terms: a potential buyer and real estate agent look at three different homes and then the potential buyer picks one. I'm not sure if it's the fact that I love guessing which house they are going to buy due to my competitive self or the fact that nothing else is one tv. Yes, I lay in bed and see if I can guess the correct house, don't judge me. I'm not gonna lie, I'm pretty good at figuring out which house they are going to pick. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say I'm usually 75% right.  And why yes I am watching it at this very moment, again don't judge me. 

Oh and not even get me started on house hunters international that's a whole other addiction.

After a recent conversation on friday night with my good friend Mary Jo over at this quote from Sex and the City stuck with me this weekend. This whole dating thing is hard!

"I'm nice. I'm pretty, and smart! I'm a catch! I've been dating since I was fifteen! I'm exhausted! Where is he?!?"
