As I mentioned on Monday, I recently teamed up with my friend Kate from The Everyday Hostess to style a fun little tailgating spread. I may be new to the art of tailgating, but I’m pretty sure that I’ve already figured out the two biggest assets of any great tailgate: food and drinks.
So when Kate suggested I turn my award winning (I consider exclamations of delight to be awards) Nutella brownies into a delicious little game day treat, I was like “so much yes!!!!” And, btw, when it comes to creating a super fun party spread, nobody does it better than my friend Kate!
Hay, friends! I am DONE with finals (well, at least for the time being), I passed all of my classes with flying colors, and my new term starts today! I took a look at my schedule last night and I seriously cannot believe how fast time is flying by – would you believe that the quizzes and midterms for this new semester start next week?!?! Insanity.
A few weeks ago, I posted a bit about this little SMU tradition called “Boulevarding”. Yep, the grammar nerd in me is still in shock that “Boulevarding” is a verb. Boulevarding is basically SMU’s version of a tailgate. Everybody wears red, white, and blue (SMU’s colors because apparently we cannot possibly get more American) and the entire main boulevard (hence the name) of the school shuts down and gets turned into a giant party for hours before each football game.
Last weekend, I hosted a fall-themed brunch in partnership with Keurig Green Mountain® at my apartment for a few of my friends here in Dallas. For the brunch, I used my brand-new, sandy pearl Keurig® K475 brewer and my favorite Green Mountain Coffee K-Cup® pods to make everything I served. Well, except for the mimosas… obviously!
If spring means pastels and seersucker and summer means bright colors and linen, then I’m pretty sure that fall means neutral colors and suede. I recently scored this suede skirt and it has been so perfect for both class and weekending (yep, that’s definitely a verb). And did I mention it’s under $100??
Plus, paired with these supa-cute pink suede pumps, I feel so Elle Woodsy and suedetastic (apparently I’ve given up on the English language in this post).
Happy Sunday, friends! Hope you’re having a supafab weekend. Aside from Friday night, I’ve been pretty much holed up in the #pinkchairpalace all weekend, studying accounting like there’s no tomorrow. But at least I had an interesting Friday night, right?
Friday night, I went to my first-ever Boulevard. What’s that, you ask? In case you don’t already know, I’m currently pursuing my MBA at SMU here in Dallas. SMU has a very special tailgating tradition called “Boulevarding” (yes, it’s apparently a verb): they turn the entire main street of campus into giant tent setups and really just a huge party. A huge, red, white, and blue (SMU’s colors) party.
