Friday Rambles & Link-ups

I am so so happy that it is finally Friday again! By this time next week I will be in Florida and I am really really hoping the weather is pleasant! Stepmomma says the cold weather visitors have been bringing the chill down there with them so cross your fingers for me! I have a few things I wanted to share so bare or is it bear hmmm just do it!

1.  This weekend....
Tonight I am partying with an old HS friend Snoops(she knows why I chose this nickname) for her birthday! Can't wait, quite a few of our mutual friends are coming out so I am excited for that. Going to get dolled up and dance my night away. Tomorrow night I have date #4(maybe 3 depending) w/Mr. Hops. Not sure what the plan was but he mentioned something about dinner. Should be fun and, of course, I will give you guys an update on that Monday! 
The bday girl! 


2. My nails....
The Nail Files


I see this link up every Friday and I never do it! So here we are!! I got this polish in my Valentines Day swap gift! 

L.A. COLORS 
Apricot Fizz

It felt very springy to have such a light color on, I love it and will definitely wear it again soon! 
By the way does anyone have any advice on how to get my nails to stop peeling? I don't have a clue why it happens but its ugly and you can see it even when they are polished! 


3. A book....

Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man by Steve Harvey
Ladies if you have not read this book, please do! Whether your in a relationship, looking for one, or just checking out the dating world it can't hurt to have a bit of an insight into the minds of men. I read it and I felt like someone had slapped me in the back of the head! Seriously. I wouldn't say it is life changing but it definitely helps me to think twice about the decisions I make regarding men and helped me figure out what I do and don't want, what I am willing to deal with and what I am willing to allow a man to do. 

4. A recipe....
You guys have heard me say before that I stress bake...well it happened again Monday. Luckily for my coworkers it was just in time for Valentine's Day! I found this recipe on Pinterest! They were a big hit, everyone who tried them loved it! 
Iphone pictures can't do justice! 


5. A movie...
I went to see it Wednesday after dinner w/A & T and it was great! I've heard good and bad reviews but I am a fan of Channing Tatum and even bigger fan of Rachel McAdams! It was a great romantic story and since I don't want to give away the ending I will just say you should see it. 

6. Dinner w/the girls....
OOh and while were on that topic we went to dinner at Uncle Julio's and I know they have these in other states since I once ate at the one in Atlanta! So if there is one near you try it and have a Swirl! They are amazeballs! 
Sangria & Margarita in a glass = heaven 

OOk I think that is all for my Friday rambles!! 
 Do you have any fun plans for the weekend? 
Try a new polish link up over at Fabulous but Evil

Pretty color Monica! Have a great weekend! Have you tried Nailtiques? they have different formulas for different problems. You have to layer it and do it every day but it dries quickly.
