Shake Your Tailfeather {Misc. Monday}

I'm so thankful for this past weekend. 
Billy was out of town for a bachelor party and as I missed him, the time to myself was wonderful. I got to experiment with new recipes and get stuff done around the house that I had been putting off, and I also did a project I found on Pinterest.

Super productive I'd say!

I'm linking up for Misc. Monday to share all my weekend randoms with ya'll.
I do think this is my 1st time linking up so cheers to that..

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

1. I got feather hair extensions in my hair. I had been wanting some for a long time, and am so glad I got them! I just love them, and now I want to get even more.

I got a yellow grizzly, natural grizzly, and a brown solid.

What do you think?

I'm inspired by Jennifer Love Hewitt's feather extensions and am really wanting to add some more colors...

Do you like the new feather trend?!

2. The Irish Festival is still one of my favorite weekends of the year. Next year I would like to go during the day so I can see more of the shops and listen to more of the bands, but this year was fun. I went with 2 of my closest girlfriends that I've been friends with since high school and we had a blast. I forced my g/f Angela to sneak up close to the stage with me under the tent to see my favorite bands perform for a few songs.

Here are some pictures of the night...

3. I love my husband.

I got home from work on Friday and found these sitting on our kitchen table. Even though he was going out of town, he stopped and got these for me before he left. So sweet.

I love them.
What girl doesn't?!

4. I made this yummy yummy yummy recipe I found on Pinterest.

{click the name for the link to the recipe}

They were soo good and I can't wait to make them for Billy!

5. I seriously love me some Trader Joes. I went and spent a bunch of moo-lah on cheeses, spreads, salsas, veggie kabobs, lentils, etc. and was like a kid in a candy store. Everytime I go in there I feel like I could stay for hours {yes, I feel the same about Whole Foods too.}

Who has tried this amazing salsa?

6. My love for Ryan Gosling hasn't stopped at The Notebook. Lindsay and I had a girl date Saturday night and we went to see the movie Crazy, Stupid Love. Such a cute movie...and some serious eye candy. GO SEE IT, LADIES.

I mean, not that good looking.

7. Fall fashion has sucked me in yet again. Every year when the stores first put out their fall clothes, I tell myself: "Do not do it, yet. Wait a bit" and......I always fail. I went and bought 3 shirts this weekend that I won't be able to wear for atleast a month or two, but on the bright side..they were amazing deals. So it was sort of like I had to. Right?

I did get this cute outfit though that I can't wait to wear....
