I'm back to feed my addiction.

After much determination, facebook and blogger finally began acting as though they should which brought me much joy and relief. All of you fellow bloggers and facebookers out there, you know what I mean ;)

Hello, my name is Amber and I'm and internet-aholic.

Sometimes, I feel a bit ashamed and convicted at the amount of time I spend on the internet and believe I should probably cut back a bit. Perhaps I will, in time.

I've noticed an array of bloggers jumping on the twitter bandwagon. I happened to have opened a twitter account a while back but I never use it. Mainly because I have a really old, ghetto phone (that I happen to love) and it's certainly not internet compatible. Basically, the only thing it can be used for is calling and texting. Oh wait, that is what it is supposed to be used for, right? Can you believe that I have had the same cell phone for a little over 2 years! I know, crazy right? Oh man, this digital age is somewhat ahead of me. I need to catch up. Maybe not.

Okay, enough about the sad truth regarding my addiction to the internet. At least I'm confessing.

I'll leave you with a few pictures. Two of which contain my lovely sister. We were asked by someone this week if we were twins. Do you think we look like twins? Must be the blonde hair and light eyes. Then again, we are sisters and we are only a mere 16 months apart.






























This weekend, Ash (my sister^) and I did some thrift shopping and found a really amazing vintage store called "Years a Go Go". There were some definite treasures in this shop and I will most definitely be revisiting in the near future. Anyway, I found this head wrap thing that looked like something from the 60's and fell in love with it and it only cost $2! Can't get much better than that.




















Here is another sweet item I happened to acquire over the weekend.

Salmon ruffle blouse from Charlotte Russe- $16.99




















Nothing screams spring/summer quite like this color. I love it.

I leave in 3 days for my trip! I can hardly believe it. When I bought my ticket, 2 months seemed so far away but it has nearly arrived and with great speed, might I add. It's amazing and scary how fast these months are flying.

I can't wait to see one of my very best friends, Ashley and all of my family. I know we're going to have a blast.

Well, I hope you all have a terrific Tuesday! Thanks for reading this ridiculously random post!

Much love!

Oh and Happy Cinco de Mayo!!! G'ahead and get your mexican groove on. You know you wanna. ;)

honestly..I don't think you could GET any cuter!! First off, you and your sis are absolutely breathtaking gorgeous and should model. And yes, you guys are twins. Don't convince me otherwise! ;) Your finds this weekend are amzing and only you could pull it off with such perfection. And lastly, I'm jealous of your trip, but you are going to have a FABULOUS time!! :)

haha, I hope that was a great rundown of how I feel about your post ;) Happy Cinco de Mayo lady! If we lived close, we would meet for lunch and indulge in some Mexican food, wear sombreros, and laugh till we spit out our drinks! :)

You and your sister and super cute! And yes, I can definitely see why people mistaken you and twins. Being married to a twin makes you realize two people don't have to look completely identical to be born at the same time :)

I'm with you on the internet addiction. I'm trying to cut back and when I do I actually feel really good. As long as it doesn't cut into my husband or bible time, I think it's okay :)

Have a great cinco de mayo, chica!
