Thank goodness it's the weekend, helloooooo LONGEST week ever!!!  Tonight my friends and I are going to see Thomas Rhett who is rocking out in the below video to his single, "Make Me Wanna."  This is going to definitely require a nap, since the show starts at 11 pm!  This weekend I am planning on busting a chill, going to some workout classes (Pure Barre) and then hanging with friends on Sunday for the super bowl.  I hope everyone has fun plans for the super bowl, I will be focusing on the snacks, wine and commercials (priorities I know ;))!

Also, a shout out to my parents--they are celebrating their 33rd wedding anniversary today.  They have been a wonderful inspiration in illustrating how a relationship should be.  They enjoy hanging out with each other and genuinely love and appreciate each other more every year!  Cheers Papa Murray and Mama Jill, I love you to the moon and back!

Loved cuddling up in this throw-on SALE for $35 while reading one of my favorite Authors Elin Hilderbrand

This blue-eyed babe had all of us laughing at lunch and in the car.....PS he loves our old beanie babies!

A little blury-but we celebrated this beauty's birthday along with my aunts.  

This face kills me-my sweet nephew M3, he was on his best behavior at lunch and afterwards.  Lots of adventures with Mimi and Auntie Maymay

My parents and I saw American Sniper Saturday.  To say I was moved would be an understatement!  The movie was incredible and Bradley Cooper definitely deserves an Oscar for his performance.  I read the book and saw Taya Kyle speak in Charlotte, but nothing prepares you for the end of the movie-not a soul moved while the credits rolled and then people clapped and we filed out of the movie theater in silence.  This movie is a wonderful look into what families and our military men and women sacrifice for us to live in this great country.  I highly suggest seeing this movie!

Not only am I obsessed with the Maroon 5 album-literally EVERY song is killer, but I love their new single, "Sugar."  It is my current ring tone (thanks Mama for letting me copy you!) and I am loving the new video where the band crashes weddings and sings to the bride and groom this song.  I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!  I am celebrating my aunt Cindy and my sweet cousin's birthdays this weekend and hoping for some hugs from my sweet nephew!

My mom along with her friend Kim and I peaced out Thursday for Canyon Ranch in Miami (It has now been bought and is called the Carillon).  It was a weekend of working out, spa services, beach time and delicious dinners.  We focused on our fitness and just chilling.  We took some fabulous classes such a buff ballet booty, zumba, ballet barre and many more.  Our favorite instructor Paul encouraged us to have sparkling eyes, lifted hearts and to be graceful ballerinas.....we tried our best!  We ate at some fabulous restaurants for dinner such as Mr. Chow, Juvia and Prime Fish.  Juvia and Prime Fish were my absolute favorites-great atmospheres and meals!!  Mom's weekend was made when we attended one of the same workout classes as Joe Lieberman, she is a political junkie and literally went all fan girl over him!  It was a whirlwind of activity and another fun adventure with Mama Jill!

The Cayman Islands

The Cayman Islands were sooo magical and peaceful!  My parent's and I were in the Cayman's for a week of hot weather and fun in the sun!  We took a sunset cruise on a catamaran which was dreamy and gorgeous!  We also rented a jeep to tool around the island and discovered blow holes and took lots of pics.  We also ate at all of our favorite places such as Calypso Grille, the Grand Old House, the Lobster Pot and found new loves such as Seven and Agua.  I read lots of books while laying out on the beach and loved ringing in the new year island style!  Until next time sweet Cayman's......aka soon my friend!  Thanks to my parents for taking me-the three musketeers!
