Hipstamatics from Nashville

It's back to reality today, after my weekend in Nashville.  My friends and I had an amazing time. From bar-hopping on Honky Tonk Row, to exploring The Grand Ole Opry, to avoiding cicadas, it was a trip we won't soon forget- we can't wait to go back! 

Here are some Hipstamatic shots- I will post more late this week!

Hope you all enjoy your day off and the official kick-off to summer! B)

Music City

My friends and I are off to Nashville tomorrow for the long weekend! Major country music fans, we cannot wait to visit every Honky Tonk bar, buy some cowboy boots, take in the Grand Ole Opry, eat our weights in BBQ, and meet some southern lads.  

If you've been/live there, any suggestions of specific fun things to do and see?

So long, Oprah

Can you believe today marks the end of The Oprah Winfrey Show? A woman who has transformed so many lives, not to mention daytime talk shows forever, is stepping down to pursue other endeavors.  I don't get OWN at my house, so I have DVR'd the last few eps to keep Oprah going.

People.com has an entire page devoted to all things Celebrating Oprah, including her fashions and most memorable moments-- you must check out these video clips. 

When I think of Oprah, I think...
