Before the Weekend...



Today is Friday, can I get an "amen"?!

Even though my week was pretty short, I'm still elated that the weekend is here and the next two days will consist mainly of sleeping in and spending time with S and Ari. And probably copious amounts of Velveeta. We tend to eat our weight in that stuff this time of year, for whatever reason.

Before the weekend, I'd like to leave you with a few thoughts/ideas/ramblings:

1. My girls at Maude Boutique are having yet another amazing sale! Right now, all winter styles are 50-75% off. Next week, almost all necklaces are on a buy two get one free special!



Don't forget, you don't have to live in Northwest Arkansas to get some Maude goodness for yourself. Just visit their FB page and if you see an item you can't live without, just comment on the photo. If they have it in stock, they'll ship it right to your door! Just tell them I sent ya : )

2. Thanks so much for voting on the poll on my right side bar! I really am trying to get a feel for what you girls and guys want to see on here and hopefully make this blog even more appealing to ya. If you haven't voted yet, please do so before next Friday : )

3. I have created a new page for Prayers, which you'll see on my top nav. I'm a firm believer in the power of prayer and what could be more powerful than a big ole group of ladies lifting each other up? If you have a prayer request that you'd like to add to the page, just email it to me at
askblondeambition{at}gmail{dot}com and include a link to your blog. I'll add it right away and provide updates from time to time on each one.

4. I need some opinions, oh stylish friends of mine. I love all of the below purses and cannot make up my mind on which to order. I need a new bag for spring and unfortunately do not have the funds to buy all five, (wedding budgets and whatnot.) Got a fav?

1) Street Level 78325; 2) Melie Bianco Angelica; 3) Melie Bianco Alyssa; 4) Big Buddha Tuxedo Satchel; 5) Melie Bianco Laura bag in Rose

5. ...and while we're on the subject of buying things, which pair of the shoes below do you like best? I want to order these while they're on sale, because I know I'll wear 'em plenty this spring and summer.

1) KensieGirl Taylor shoe in Cocoa; 2) Pierre Dumas Esther-2

6. I have officially jacked up my shoulder. S and I dug our way to the gym on Wednesday and hit the weights and cardio pretty hard. We worked on arms for about 45 minutes and somewhere between the skull crushers and the cable press downs, my shoulder became all wonky. I must say, there's something that makes one feel decidedly cooler for having a workout injury. I mean, I'm fully enjoying saying, "Aw, my shoulder! Did somethin' to it at the gym the other day when I hit the weights. It's killer." : )

Well, I'm off to enjoy my Aleve and coffee : ) Have a great weekend and, wherever you are, stay warm and safe.

Be blessed, lovelies-

  7. #4 for the purse and #2 for the shoes. That's what I would pick. OOOOOoooohhhh I wish I could shop right now! Thank goodness I have two lovely sweaters on the way, thanks to you! Enjoy the shopping and your velveeta cheese. You should make some kind of dip with it for the Super Bowl!!

  8. I'm a new follower as well!! I have a boutique in Mountain Home and carry Melie. I highly recommend option #2. I have Fog and Rose in stock, definitely the most popular style I've had in the store. I also have style #3, cute but not as functional. Hope that helps. So happy to find an Arkansas blogger!!

  11. i'm in the same boat as you with needing a new bag - unfortunately, i am having the hardest time deciding and not enough moolah to buy the many bags i've seen that i love. sigh. if only i didn't love cute fashionable things so much...

    on that note, i vote for bag #3. i'm a sucker for gold hardware!

  12. What fabulous bags!! I think 2 and 3 are my faves! The shoes are adorable, too! The second pair is my favorite. Happy Weekend and I hope your shoulder feels better soon!

  13. I'm loving this way of narrowing down what to buy! Such a great idea!

    I'm going to have vote #5 on the purse and #2 on the shoes...If I had money, I would be buying those TODAY! But, saying as I'm the only one so far loving #5 on the purses, I'll back up my vote with bag #2!

  14. Hey Leslie :)

    Happy Friday and cheers to Velveeta cheese on a cold weekend :) I have to agree that I love the purse #1 that is beyond cute and I may have to get one for myself! As for the shoes it is a close tie because they are both so cute to choose just one! I guess I would pick #2 though being a spring/summer shoe. I also wanted to say that I love reading your blog and don't always comment as much as I want (mostly because when I read your blog from google reader I always have issues on my blackberry when I try to leave a comment), but I think the content on your blog is great and that you don't need to change a thing! I am loving the advice on fitness that your sweet fiancee gives, and you always show the cutest clothes and great fashion ideas and tips!

    Have a wonderful, relaxing weekend

  21. Hope your shoulder doesn't hurt for too long! And you're right, a person can almost take pleasure in complaining about their gym injury!!!

    have a great weekend!

  22. Love bag number 4 and the tan shoes! :) Also love that you added a place for prayers! So cool! :) Good idea, girl! Have a fabulous weekend!

  23. Those purses are ADORABLE! I like the ruffles on #1 and the pink color of #5. Personally, I think both of those shoes are cute, so you should probably just get both. ;)
