I'm back from a 2 week hiatus

Oh girls, I am not even sure where to begin on filling you in!! The last that you heard from me I was getting ready to leave for NYC. It was by far one of the highlights of my life. G and I had an amazing time getting to meet you all that were there and we have many memories that will last a lifetime. We spent all 3 days painting the town pink and soaking in all the sights and sounds. My first time to the city did not disappoint. We made sure to stop by Dorrian's and Serendipity [thanks to Preppy 50 and Loving Lilly], hang out in Time Square and Rockefeller Center, all while shopping along the way! Thanks to Hopsy for hosting such a wonderful gathering! Now I can put so many names to the faces, which was quite a thrill for me.




The Martha taping truly felt like a dream! I have never been that pumped up about something. The Lilly and Martha teams did a wonderful job with the segments and our goodies. Too bad that the show hasn't reaired yet, but thank goodness for DVR! Seeing yourself on the big screen is shocking. All I have to say is I am heading to the taning bed and will be attempting to cut out the sweets ;) They do say that the camera adds 20 lbs?! I am not sure how much other bloggers have posted but here are some of the photos of the taping and following events...






After a wonderful time in NY, we had many difficulties getting back to school, so I skipped making it back to Knoxville. This was the point in time where I headed straight to the farm to spend the entire week by myself... ok well not exactly, I had 12 horses to keep me company! SB down at the farm was beyond relaxing. I spent some quality time with my favorite guys (the horses), and ate plenty of junk food (not like I didn't have enough of that in NY!). It was the best way to kick back and relax and I even got a little work done! On another note, Spring has arrived, and I busted out a few new spring pieces in the mix. We hosted a horse show yesterday and it hit 75 degrees which proved to be the perfect climate for both horse and riders. I was parading around in some J.Crew white capri and a cute Lilly tunic. But, here is a picture of the farm after some fog had settled in... I'm not going to lie, it was kinda spooky!


So now I am back in the real world, aka school. After having missed a week I have much catching up to do (in more ways than one). There are only 5 weeks of classes left, which means that I am on the home stretch of college! Now I need to focus on a test I am making up tomorrow and I am going to attempt to catch up on some blogging and see what yall have been up to.

Hope yall have a great week... p.s. this is my 99th post which means that I smell a giveaway coming :)

Welcome back! I didn't realize that was you at the Lilly store Tuesday evening until Hopsy posted a photo with everyone's name. I think we should have been wearing name tags with our real/blog names :) It certainly was a fun couple of days!
