I am not a huge hater of the winter, but I have had enough of the cold weather -- This outfit is perfect for walking down Newbury with your bestie & a latte on those first days of spring! I cannot wait until I can shop and not have to lug around my puffy coat!
Even though it is a workday, and I prefer rainy days to fall on the weekends (optimal relaxation time, ha!), I cannot wait to get home and begin rainy-day related activities!
Read a Magazine or a Short Book -- I love reading, but it always falls by the wayside in my routine. I used to read a book every week or so and I most definitely do not anymore. Rainy days are great to go through a magazine you bought, or to read a shorter novel (Nicholas Sparks, chick lit, etc.). I like reading shorter books in a day or so, and rainy days give me that opportunity.
Organize & Re-Fold Your Dresser -- I feel lame adding this to the list, but there is nothing I love more than organizing. Every now and again, usually on a rainy day, I take the time to pull everything out of my drawers, give them a good fluffing and re-fold them. I also love to go through other storage items and get rid of things I no longer need.
Take a Nap -- If there is one thing I miss about college, I miss the naps that I always could find a justification for. The best naps, in my opinion, are rainy-day naps. I love cuddling up under a throw and snoozing for an hour or two.
Drink an Excessive Amount of Tea -- I love tea, especially Tazo Refresh, Trader Joe's Green Cranberry, and Yogi Kava Stress Relief (you can find this at Whole Foods).
Have Soup in an Oversized Mug -- Campbell's chicken noodle soup with an entire sleeve of Saltines is a guilty pleasure, and I only allow myself to have it when I am sick or when it is raining. I also love tomato soup with a grilled cheese, & especially love lentil soup.
Watch an Entire Season of an Old TV Show You Used to Love -- The O.C., Laguna Beach, Friends, Dawson's Creek... pick your poison.
Call Someone You've Been Meaning to Catch Up With -- Your grandmother, a friend from high school, or anyone else you miss talking to regularly. I love when I can call an old friend who I have not spoken to in awhile and I have so much to tell them, and they have so much to tell me! Everyone's busy, and it is difficult to keep in touch with everyone you care about as much as you'd like, and rainy days give you the opportunity to do so.
Is it raining where you are today? What do you like to do when it rains?

Good News Ladies! Please visit J.Crew today for a most exciting extra 30% off sale! An added bonus -- free shipping on orders of $100+ (which, let's be serious, is not very difficult to accomplish!). I love J.Crew's sales because they are a really good opportunity to stock up on basics like cardigans, tanks, and tees, as well as maybe splurge on something like a blazer that I do not necessarily need but have been lusting after!

A few highlights from my birthday weekend...in photos!
Cutest card courtesy of my sorority sister, HB! And yes, that is a polar bear and a hedgehog having a martini. I'm obsessed!! I appreciated all of the cards, facebook posts, texts and calls from my loves!
Jo Malone perfume in Lime Basil & Mandarin (the boyfy did an
excellent job picking out the scent!)
Jo Malone candle in Sweet Lime & Cedar (uber relaxing) from TM!
Louis Vuitton Key Pouch in Damier Ebene Canvas (perfect grabbing your keys, some cash, your id, and credit card all in one place) from TM :)
Bobbi Brown Pretty Powerful Palette (four eye colors, perfect pink blush, and 3 glosses with just a hint of color) from my sissy!
Decadent homemade fondue made by my blessed-with-excellent-cooking-skills sister! Paired with wine from our trip to Napa, and angel food cake (made from scratch, much much better than what you can get from a box!), freshly whipped cream, and berries for dessert!
Photo Op at the Lincoln Memorial with TM after feasting on guacamole at Rosa Mexicano (the place for good chips and guacamole!). It was 80 degrees on my usually freezing birthday, what more could I have asked for!?
Trip to Baked and Wired for an iced tea and cupcake in Georgetown Saturday! The line was longer than long, but sooo worth it!
View from Proof, where my sister, her boyf, and my boyf had dinner Saturday evening. In addition to the food, wasn't the view amazing!? Proof is must if you're visiting the Nation's Capitol!
Homemade French Toast to finish off the amazing weekend! Thanks Bee & JZ for your hospitality!
Thank you all for making my day so special!

So, last week I celebrated Valentine's Day with my boyfy, TM at K.O Prime in the Nine Zero hotel. I love steak, and was excited because it was my first K.O experience! Can I just say, the food was amazing. When decided to get a lot and try a little bit of everything. We started out with cocktails and ordered the foie gras with kumquat-bourbon marmalade, beef tartare with jalapeno aioli, and a frisee salad with bacon, marcona almonds, poached egg and a tangy vinaigrette. I enjoyed them all but the frisee salad was beyond good. For dinner, TM had the rib eye chop while I had the NY sirloin. My steak was decent but I loved the rib eye. We were stuffed after the appetizers but managed to have some of the sides we had ordered with our steaks -- short rib macaroni and cheese, mushroom risotto (my favorite part of all), and rosemary frites. The best part was the fact that we both had leftovers for days after! I highly recommend K.O for a relaxing evening with impeccable service. They also have a great wine and cocktail menu, so it is an ideal spot for a quiet drink!
I posted a few pictures on my Posterous.
Hope everyone had a lovely love day!
P.S. Can I just say, that I am going with my roomie, AB, tomorrow to a spa for a birthday treat, and I am beyond excited!

Here are my favorite looks --
Sunset Cantina's Nachos -- Sunset Cantina is a BU Girl staple meal. They have the best margaritas, you must try the Lime & Coconut (on the rocks, with salt!). Their nachos are super good, and, as you can see, are HUGE. We met up with a few sorority sisters and feasted!
Back Bay Social Club's Beignets -- After dinner at 94 Mass Ave. Saturday night, we were so craving something sweet. These beignets really hit the spot - delicious!
I apologize for the less-than-stellar quality of these photos.. However, I will be getting a new berry very shortly! Yay!
My other college roomie/sorority sis, CB, is coming to visit me this weekend. We plan to hit up Flour, Cantina Italiana, and Houston's. I am so excited to see her!
