Photo Diary: It's a Celebration!

Every Thursday night, a group of my friends get together for "family dinners."  We rotate houses, and each bring an item of food, based on what theme the host chooses.  This past week, the theme was "baked," so we had baked chicken, baked mac & cheese, baked tilapia, etc... The food is always delicious, and we all have a great evening, which usually ends in drinks and games!

Yesterday afternoon I went to brunch with the boo, and ordered eggs benedict.  Doesn't my food look like Oscar from Sesame Street? lol

Later that evening, I went out to celebrate my best friend Leilani's birthday.  We went to dinner at an Italian spot called Mama Nina.  I've blogged about this restaurant once before HERE.  Their food is definitely delicious, but not so much nutritious!
I spotted this beautiful dress in the window of a boutique on my short walk from my car to the restaurant.  I may have to go back and try it on!

The beautiful birthday girl!  Happy birthday Lei!

Say it with me: Yuuuuuummm!
After dinner, Lei and I went to meet up with some of our friends for her birthday party at a karaoke bar!  

We had such a blast!  We sang everything from En Vogue to Britney Spears!  We jammed to Boyz II Men, Alanis Morissette, sang some MJ, grooved to Stevie Wonder, and more!  We did it all!  And of course we were dancing our behinds off too!  

It was honestly the most fun I've had in a good while!  

Happy Monday!

Happy New Year!

I know, it sounds weird and awkward for me to say it, being as it's almost the end of January... But I'm giving myself a "grace period" (if you will) since my last post was technically in 2011!  I am very excited for 2012!  I have so many plans and goals I want to achieve, and it's just nice to have that fresh feeling of a new start.  A lot of my personal goals are long term, so the key for me is to continue striving towards attaining and maintaining these goals.  Looking back on 2011, most of my goals are the same now as they were, though some have changed.  There's always a few new editions as well, lol, but overall I think resolutions are healthy, NOT cliche!

Excuse my umbrella, but it was pouring raining yesterday!  Of course it decides to rain right as I walk outside lol.  I just imagined the whole time that the umbrella was a cute accessory to my outfit.  This is actually the first snow we've had this winter!

Wearing a Calvin Klein trench coat with faux fur collar, H&M sweater, F21 skirt, and Donald J. Pliner leather boots.

I would also like to say a big hello to all of my new readers!  HELLO THERE! *big wave + cheesy smile*  Thanks for joining me, and don't be afraid to reach out!!  Happy Tuesday!

To end this post with a quote that has been inspiring me lately...

“If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”
