This weekend has flown by at full speed! Friday night was the first "Girls Night" I've had in seriously about a year! I've been so used to being busy during the week with work and just hanging out with my family on weekends that I have totally lost contact with the outside world. Plus, I really just can't find many girls I want to get close to...maybe that sounds bad - oh, well. However, the three girls I ADORE hanging out with met up with me for sushi then it was off to their house for yummy margaritas and hot tubbing. It was so nice to hang out with them again! Like I said, it has been about a year since I've seen them, so my weight loss was a big shock to them. They were SO happy for me and supportive! Most people - let me start over - EVERY person I know thinks I'm pretty cookoo for being vegan and I get hell on a daily basis for it. It was so refreshing to have people commend me for it. I really needed that!

After trying on a bathing suit for the first time since summer, it was pretty clear the girls up top and the junk in the trunk weren't going to look too nice in my old one. That leaves only one thing to do - SHOP! How sad...I know. :-) So since my parents were heading to the mall anyway I figured I'd tag along and try to find one. I needed to go into Victoria's Secret anyway (Valentine's Day is coming up - hello!) So as I walked in I saw the most wonderful thing EVER...they were selling bathing suits in the store! Maybe this isn't a big deal to everyone else, but I have never seen them sold in the actual store and I was doing about four different happy dances! I found an adorable bandeau bikini with watercolor looking flowers on it and had to at least try it on (Top = $55; Bottom = $55; Me = broke until pay day next week). I have never been a big fan of the bandeau style because I always feel like it's a struggle to keep them up, but this one had a removable strap to go around your neck, so I was in business. Much to my dismay, the small was to small and the medium was too big - what the crap!? So today has just been online browsing for SALES on VS, and let me tell you - there are some good finds right now! If you need a suit and know your size I highly suggest checking them out. This is what I'm leaning towards -










This is so cute and pin-up girl to me...plus it comes in pink :-)







So cute and colorful! It just screams summer to me.



Call me crazy, but I just love this sailboat print!

Now the rest of my day consists of laying around watching Food Network and eating leftover veggies from some kick-butt fajitas last night. Nothing is better than spicy jalopeno goodness with a Hungry-Girl margarita to wash it down. If you've never been to Hungry-Girl.com you MUST check it out! I could go on and on about this gem of a site, but I'll save it for another day. I hope everyone else had a fabulous weekend! Tomorrow's back to the work week - whoohoo! (dripping with sarcasm)

I LOVE the first bathing suit! I am thrilled that they are selling them in the store now because I ordered two online and them never fit quite right. Another amazing place to find swim suits is TArget... but Only in JAn and feb because by March all the good one are gone! I get more compliments on the ones from Target then anywhere else.
PS here is a recipie that I make for EVERYONE and it will totally change everyones mind on vegan cooking...
