Can't get enough... Water for Elephants

Water for Elephants.
Holy Moly.
This movie was so amazing.  I haven't read the book, but always wanted to. ( dont hate me for being "that girl")  But this movie was amazing in so many ways!
Visually, it was Eye candy, from the colors, the animals, the time period and the wardrobe... oh and Rob & Reese of course.
I could kill for Marlena's wardrobe in this.  You should definitely see it for that alone.  But the story, and acting are also impeccable.
There aren't many movies that i am already dying to see again even before its through. But this one definitely is one that i'll be bringing home.
loved it.

Have a great weekend!

Let's be friends!

So I'm sure you've all heard of the most fabulous app called Instagram!  It really is just so great.  If you haven't heard, or seen, you won't hesitate much longer once you see all the different filters you can put on your mundane iphone photos.  It's almost like twitter, but for pictures, and just a really great way to edit photos and export them other places! 
my username: charisjordan


And while you're at it, lets be friends on twitter too! I added a widget on the side that has my most recent tweets, and you can follow me just by clicking. But leave me your twitter/instagram usernames in a comment so i can follow you too!
Happy Thursday!

Baby Bump!

Nope, not mine... But my friend Courtney Clark's.
She is a little past her due date, for her precious baby boy.. and we thought, 'maybe he's just waiting for his before pictures..'
So yesterday, in the hot blazing sun, we shot a few, in hopes that one day she could tell that boy.. "you were born the day after these pictures were taken"
So anyways, she is such a beauty and a burst of joy and sunshine. I wanted to share these pretty pictures of her, and have you all say a little prayer that her little boy will get into the right position and make his way into our world very soon!

such, a beauty.
Getting inspired for things in the blog department.
Going to be rolling out some new things, features and exciting plans in the next few months!
Can't wait to share!
Have a happy Wednesday!
the week is almost over.

Easter weekend.

Happy Easter!
Hope you all had a great weekend. I sure did!
I got to go meet by babe for the weekend! I left super early saturday am (3:30am early!) and came back last night, but it sure was worth it. Luke, Carlos, Jeremy and Larry were playing at a church outside of DC for an Easter service, and i just came to tag along, and to spend a tiny bit of time with my man, He's almost half-way through with this tour, about 4 more weeks to go! It can't come soon enough!

Easter Lillies- and hanging with my peeps :)

lots of couple shots:) so i had something to look at when i got home.

Now, that birthday(month) is almost over, I am counting down the days til my beach week!! which isn't too far away!
So thankful I've been getting to do so many little trips lately, its what keeps me going, and keeps me sane.
Cant wait for some adventures to the beach and stuff when Luke comes home!
It's gonna be an amazing summer. i can feel it.
the winds are about to change.

have a great week friends!

A town-Down.

And we're back! Birthday weekend, was a blast!!! It went so well, and we all scored such great new things! I've said it a million times, but i really do have such great friends! I am so excited and blessed to have a good group of girl friends, i don't want to ever take it for granted.
We woke up super early Saturday am and headed to Atlanta, ( a 4 hour drive) Our first stop was a large antique mall right outside of Atl. that is open only one weekend a month, and just happened to be open this weekend! It was fun to walk around and get inspired. I only took home a pretty vintage book, but they had such reasonably priced furniture and large pieces that i would definitely go back with a Uhaul someday!
After antiquing, we hit up the h&m and the mall. Shopping spree began. We literally shopped til we dropped, before we knew it, it was after 9 and we hadn't even checked into our hotel! Once we did, we all freshened up, had a photo op and then got a ride to our restaurant..
We ate at Pure(taqueria) and i found my new favorite margarita spot.
really glad to know they just opened one of these outside of charlotte! We stayed til they closed, it was so fun! Once we got back to the hotel, there was a "pool side party" happening on the 16th floor, and because we were living it up in the city this weekend, we said "why not?" It happened to be a latino party, but that was the best part! after a few dances we ended the night.

Sunday morning we headed to Ria's Bluebird for Brunch, this was fun side of town, it was a gem of a restaurant and their latte was amazing. After brunch we walked around little 5 points, and Highland areas of town. Lots of fun vintage shops, and boutiques. It was the most beautiful day, the weather was PERFECT!

All in all this trip was awesome, I'm already scheming my next trip. I believe the next one will include more sand and sun!!! Next weekend im going to DC to see Luke, cant wait!!
Hope your weekend + monday treated you right.
have a great week!!
