Friday's Letters & Friday's Fancies Week #11: Picnic Primped

Friday's Letters
Dear Kittens, thank you for spending hours on my lap the other day together, you are too cute!  PS - Happy 2nd Birthday!   Dear Yazz, thank you for helping me find lemon cookies in Target the other day.  PS - I love randomly running into you in stores it makes me happy!  Dear Friends, thank you for coming over for Super Club!  Love you all dearly!  Dear Internal Revenue Service, YES I'm spelling out your name again, thank you for making us owe you money this year (a lot of money at that!).  We will put our money else where so you stop frivolously wasting it...  Thank you...  Dear Weather, Summer are you already here with 80 degree weather?  I'm okay with you, just don't be 90 quite yet...  Apparently you changed your mind on Wednesday and Thursday and brought back barely Spring weather (brr!).  Dear Vampire Diaries, thank you for coming back on this week... Dear Coworker, thank you for taking walks at lunch around the trail with me.  It's nice to get outside and get off my rear!  Dear Ballet Barre Class, thank you for making me sore and realize I need to do other things besides running a bazillion miles.  Dear Husband, please don't make me ever go back to Noodles and Company.  I don't like it...


Friday's Fancies Week #11: Picnic Primped
Picnic Primped

Ahhhh wouldn't it be nice to spend the weekend whether it be at the beach, a park, the mountains or even your backyard lying on a soft blanket, basking in the sun, sipping some wine and snacking on something delicious.  I will get to do something of the sorts this weekend, weather pending.  Each year we go to one of the wine festivals (April or September) to taste local wines and picnic out in the grassy area.  This weekend is the Great Grapes Wine, Arts & Food Festival so that's where we will be spending our Saturday afternoon.

  1. I thought I was the only one who didn't like Noodles! Glad to know that I'm not alone. I'm just not a fan. But I am a fan of this outfit! (I know right, what a transition!) I love the color of that maxi and I love those earrings. Gorgeous! Enjoy your weekend Amanda! Sounds fun!

  2. What is Noodles and Company? A chain? I lived in the South briefly, cannot recall...Either way, hope he doesn't take you back ;)

    And I am CRAVING picnic weather! I am in Central New York, and we always prepare for a snow storm until about May 15th :) Thankfully it has been nice spring weather lately!

    Enjoy your weekend, darlin. I will definitely be back to read more, love your blog!


  3. I might have to make myself a dress like that one because it's so pretty but so expensive! After reading all the friday letters this week, I think I might have to catch up on this season of Vampire Diaries.

  4. Oh I loooove this. The green dress with those nude feminine heels is perfection! You always make the greatest sets! I love when my cat sits on my keyboard too :)


  5. I love your letters! This green dress is pure perfection, if only it weren't so darn expensive. I am searching for the perfect green maxi for this spring/summer. Happy Friday!

  6. Oh my gosh, that green dress is GORGEOUS!! I love all of your elegant picnic picks. Have a great time this weekend!

    We'd love for you to stop by & take a look at our Picnic in the Park. :)
