Weekend Recap: NYC

This past weekend was beyond amazing. New York is such a great place to visit. Keyword: visit. Although it is wonderful, I don’t think I could ever live there. But that is just my personal opinion — clearly there are many people who would agree with me! The fashion was spectacular — hello, Madison Ave — and the food was even better. This was the boyfriend’s first trip to NYC and I think it safe to say he is a fan, as well. Below are a few (read: A TON) pictures to help review this weekend! We started off Saturday at Freedom Tower and some exploring in the city. Saturday night was a hit with seeing The Book of Mormon (hilarious!). Sunday we visited the MET and took a stroll through Central Park followed by a long walk through the city. Monday was short day in the city but we made a quick stop by The Empire State Building to get some beautiful views of the city. Perfect weekend trip if you ask me! I apologize, pictures uploaded in reverse order so just pretend it was on purpose…

Beautiful city — how great is this picture. I love all the brownstones in NYC!

Outside the MET — fantastic museum



Frattiest kid that ever lived. I want him to be mine (one day)!

The Beginning…Again



I’ve been “ignoring” my blog— it’s not really ignoring when I think about it daily— for about 1.5-2 weeks now. I wish i could say I had an excuse (does getting the flu count?) but regardless, I’ve been denying my blog the attention it deserves. Lately, I just haven’t been motivated to write but with 2013 now in full effect, I realized that it is time I make an educated decision about Tasteful {ness}. I am going to try and make a commitment of blogging 3-4 times a week. I want to be able to post every day but I just don’t think I have the time or the material right now. So here is to a brand new start in 2013. Full of good food, lots of fun, and a bunch of tasteful things in the future!! Thanks for sticking around :)

Weekend Recap

This weekend was so great. I will never turn down an opportunity to visit friends. Not to mention, getting out of the city for a few days is always nice. I had an awesome time in Waco this weekend. However, if I never visit again I think i’ll survive– no offense, Jac. It was well worth the trip to catch up with my friend and see her happy in law school.

Side Note: how is it already the week of Thanksgiving?! Family is coming to Dallas this year to celebrate the holiday with me– I am so excited to not be traveling! I am even more excited to have everyone here! Hope everyone had a great weekend! Remember, it’s a short work week!

Have a fantastic Monday!

Weekend Recap


This weekend was very necessary. Friday was spent curled up on the couch with boyfriend & pup watching a movie with takeout. Saturday was full of errands and heading back to Fort Worth for the TCU game. After moving to Dallas I forget how much I miss Fort Worth. Although, I am not entirely sure if I miss the school aspect but I definitely miss the college days. TCU unforunately lost this weekend but we still had a great time seeing friends from all over come back together for the game. Here are a few pics of my weekend!

| snuggled a lot with this boy this weekend |


| love waking up to his face!! |

| go frogs!! |

| some wrestling/puppy love occurred |

| boys will be boys— yes they’re matching (unintentionally) |

| woke up to this pup eying squirrels Sunday morning after staying with a friend |

Hope everyone had a nice weekend! Have an even better Monday!!

Weekend Recap

This weekend was wonderful and the weather was perfect, as well. Friday night the boyfriend and I had a date night at Hibiscus. The food was amazing! We had never been there before so it was great to try somewhere new! Saturday I took Bennett on a morning run (which turned into more of a time to play fetch once he found a random tennis ball). Later, I did some shopping and relaxed with boyfriend&dog. It was an uneventful and perfect weekend in my books.

| this is what the boyfriend ordered; Spit Roasted Porchetta Chip with a nicoise salad, smokey mustard and poached egg |

| a peplum top I fell in love with! |

| some very necessary TLC— because he is sooo deprived |

| and then my mother had to send me daily updates on the pup back home, Macie |

Sorry for the poor quality of Iphone photos. Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Have an even better Monday!
