Ins and Outs, Odds and Ends

There are a bunch of random happenings that I want to write about, so in no particular order, here it goes!

– I found out last Friday that I won When Tara Met Blog’s BB Dakota Dress giveaway! YAY!

It’s a drop too big on me, the smallest size they had was one size up from what I would wear, but nothing a good tailor can’t fix!! I’m definitely going to save this to hopefully wear to my bridal shower! (Whenever that may be!)

Arielle is having a giveaway for a $25 gift card to Best Buy! There are a bunch of different ways you can enter, so get to it! And don’t forget to tell her who your favorite jew is! (I picked our awesome tour leader from our Israel trip.)

– This week I hit up two of my foodie spots from my NYC-to-See list!!! On Monday Dave took me to see (500) Days of Summer, since I was all cry-ey that no one would see it with me/people saw it already. (He’s such a good fiance! And I LOVED the movie. Soundtrack is now on my Amazon wish list, waiting to be purchased.) Before the movie, we grabbed dinner at Peanut Butter & Co.! Dave got The Mighty Maple (PB w/ maple syrup, and bacon) and I got The Elvis (PB w/ bananas and honey, grilled).

It was SO good!

– And on Wednesday, I saw on Twitter that The Treats Truck was near my office! I ran over and got some delicious goodies, including a Rasberry Brownie, and these mini cookies called Sugar Dots, which are a petite sugar cookie with icing and sprinkles. So yummy!! And only 50 cents a piece!

– SG over at Always a Bridesmaid… Finally a Bride tagged me for the sexy little game that’s going around:

write 5 things that make you feel sexy
-post a pic (if you dare!)
-pass it on to 5 lovely bloggers

Oh crap umm. What makes me feel sexy…
1. Straight hair. I LOVE when my hair is straight, and it makes me feel so HOT. ๐Ÿ™‚ I guess because I can run my fingers through it, which I can’t do with my usual curly/wavy hair.
2. Dave whistling or hooting at me while I’m getting dressed/undressed. It’s nice to still get that reaction after almost 3 years of dating.
3. Getting hit on (in a nice way.) There was one time I was at a bar and a guy came up to me and said, “I’ve been trying to get your attention all night.” I then said thanks, and introduced him to Dave, saying “Sorry, I’m here with my boyfriend.” And then he shook Dave’s hand and basically congratulated him on being with me! Haha. So rare, but feels so good when it happens.
4. A good tan. ‘Nuff said.
5. Walking around the apartment in boy shorts and a wife beater. So comfy, and Dave loves it. ๐Ÿ™‚

No picture, sorry. One – I dont think I would be able to pick a picture of myself and classify it as sexy, and Two – I’m at work, so I have limited pictures here, and no access to FB.

– And Caz from Cherry Blossoms and Vodka tagged me for the “One Lovely Blog” award! (Well that’s the one I picked… she tagged a bunch of bloggers for that one, and the Honest Scrap one, and told us to choose… I didn’t have this one!)

Thanks Caz!! The rule is to pass this onto 15 new reads, but people, I am feeling lazy. I apologize. So for this one and the sexy thing, steal it if you’d like it! (or just need some blog fodder!) ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Friday!!

  8. I had a similar bar experience with my fiance…right after I finished telling him how guys NEVER hit on me at bars two dudes hit on me while I was trying to get our drinks (fiance was in the bathroom). He came out and just watched for a while amused and then was like "YEAH you NEVER get hit on huh?"

  9. I want want WANT that dress. Although I doubt it would look as great on me as it does on you.
