Hi friends! I know, no post in almost two months – but hey, it's winter and I'll be totally honest, my life hasn't really been too exciting lately, which clearly makes for a very boring blog. My weekends in January and February were filled with nights in with takeout and Netflix (House of Cards!) and how many times could I possibly post pictures of that and call it a legit blog post? So, I'll just catch you guys up now with some photos from the winter months.
I am SO happy it's now March – however, I'm so over this winter and the negative degree weather or snow storms every other day. A heat wave looks to be rolling in next week with 40-degree weather though, and at this point, I will take whatever I can get. My sisters came to Des Moines to visit last weekend. It was so nice having them to hang out with for the whole weekend. Can you both move to Des Moines, please? My life would be so much more fun! Saturday we went shopping – Forever 21 is usually hit or miss for me, but they just came out with new line of spring clothes, and I found so many cute things! I ended up buying two dresses to wear for various bridal events coming up this summer. I also bought a maxi dress from Dry Goods, which I'll either wear to one of my bridal showers or the rehearsal dinner. Ahhh, I just can't wait for all things wedding this summer!
Zac brought home these pretty flowers – not for Valentine's Day, but just a random gloomy day in February, which, I think, is even better than roses on Valentine's Day.
One weekend in February, Zac and I went to an Iowa State men's basketball game in Ames with some friends. I really can't say I enjoy watching basketball on TV, but live games are always fun... especially when there are pre-drinks (Blue Moon, obviously) involved at a bar before the game.
As always, a few date nights were taken in January/February – one night we went and saw Wolf of Wall Street (loved it!) then headed to On the Border. On Valentine's Day, Zac took me to Dos Rios downtown for drinks and dinner. We love our Mexican and margaritas!
Two weekends ago, I visited some friends in Omaha. I am having one of my bridesmaids do my hair for my wedding, so we practiced wedding hair, celebrated National Margarita Day, and just caught up on each other's lives. I definitely need to visit more often!
