Great weekend, with great friends...Car ride up with Kendra jamming to some tunes. Got to spend time celebrating the birthday of my dear friend Teal, while relaxing at Maria and Michael's cute new home. I would say it was a succesful weekend.

App Craze

My current favorite Apps for the iPhone-

Local Concerts-I can find out who is playing in town and it even syncs with my ipod so I can find out if anyone I listen to often is coming. 

Bump It-just fun because you have to really interact with someone in order for it to work. Just pull up a picture or contact in the app and bump phones with another iphone user and the information syncs onto their phone. Its like magic!

Concert Vault-Ever thought I really wish I could have seen Stevie Wonder live back in the 70s? With this app you can listen to old live recordings of some of the best musical artists of all time. 

Taste Kid-Weird name-awesome app-just type in the name of a book, movie or musical artist and it will suggest other things similar you may like.

Hipstamatic-Its a way to be more creative than just a normal camera. And the pictures look so pretty. 

Trip It-Just email your reservation confirmations to and the app organizes everything for you in one place and calculates directions to and from destinations. 

RATP-This app is going to come in handy when Jen and I are in Paris-it has a map of the Paris Metro and RER system for easy navigation around the City of Lights. 

Escargo-A great app to ensure Jen and I don't end up eating something really weird and nasty while in Paris. 

London Tube-Similar to the Paris app-It helps navigate the London Tube and tells you how long it will take from point A to point B and which stops to take.

Lingolook French-Great app that includes flash cards for Essential French phrases for when Jen and I don't know how to say "Where is the airport?" in French.

Organizing Everything

The organizational freak in me was super excited to update my iPhone with the new iOS4. It let me make these pretty folders and have all my apps on one page. Its pretty much fantastical!

Hello Goodbye

Dear Sir Paul McCartney,
In just 2 short months I will be fulfilling a life long dream and seeing you in concert here in Charlotte. I hear it is the most amazing concert experience I will ever have...I hope that is true considering the amount I just paid for a ticket. Please play all my favorite Beatles' songs. Thank You.

Theis Sister Adventure

So a couple months ago I was getting that I need to go on a trip right now or I am going to scream itch that I get every once and a while. I thought "who would go on a random trip with me?" Answer: My sister.

For those who don't know I am notorious for deciding to do random things at the last minute. I have dragged my sister with me to see several concerts deciding to get tickets the day of (which if you ask me is the best day to get tickets cause you can usually get some really good seats). I even made her drive to Greensboro with me to see John Mayer because I found seats on the floor in row 13, 5 hours before the show started.
Needless to say she is used to my crazy ideas and adventures. So I texted her and said, "You want to go to Paris or London with me?" Her answer, "Sure". I don't think she realized that I was serious, but before we knew it we were going to Europe. An idea to just do 4 days in one city quickly grew into, let's do a week in both, and as of the end of April we have booked our flights and hotels for the trip in October. So even though I still have 4 months to plan I have been on the hunt for the best places to eat, shop, and just explore.

These have come in handy lately. I currently am dealing with an addiction to travel books.

So as you can probably tell I am super excited to go back to London and Paris. I think I am even more excited to have the chance to experience these cities with someone who has never been. It is going to be so much fun to see these places through the eyes of my sister, and just spend time together.
Is it October yet?

Brother Bear

My brother opened his new office in Bethany Beach a few weekends ago. I'm so proud...he's pretty much amazing and I heart him.

(Side Note: Just was pointed out to me that my Dad is staring weirdly out the door in the last picture. )

Makeover Ashley Edition

This past weekend I decided last minute (which is often how I approach large projects) to re-decorate my room. I don't think I was prepared for the amount of work I was in for, but I am really pleased with the results....still have a few things to hang and buy but here is the (somewhat) finished product.

Tangled Web

It is an addiction...I need to stop but the temptation of having so much information at my fingertips is just too overwhelming....the following sites are to blame...

The Sartorialist
The photographer who started this blog worked in the fashion industry for 15 years. Now he walks around different cities and takes pictures of what real, average, everyday people wear in cities like New York, Sydney, Milan, Paris and Tokyo.

Design Sponge
This blog is run by Grace, who used to be an editor at one of my favorite magazines, Domino, now the magazine has been shut down, but she still posts about things that are going on in the design world. It is a great blog filled with amazing ideas and inspiration from other people.

Rick Steves
The king of travel tips...he has a tv show, books, and travel gear. Its a great resource when planning my next adventure.

Entertainment Weekly
I am a sucker for pop culture, and this site always has the latest info on what's happening in the entertainment world. Plus it used to be the home of my favorite LOST recap blog written by Doc Jensen.

Trip Advisor
Users can post reviews for 100s of restaurants, shops and hotels all over the world. Perfect for when you are going on a trip and don't want to end up paying a ton of money to eat crappy food.

J. Crew
One side of my brain says, "I want to dress more urban and trendy" but the prepster side of my brain always wins when i go on this site or in the store and see tons of pretty things begging for me to take them home.

I could be on this site for hours...if only i could afford it.
