About 6 months ago they opened a new location much closer to my house. I was hesitant to go there but thrilled to discover I already knew the owner. I have to say...this location is just as good as the other one! The food is almost exactly the same and the employees are really friendly.
It's so nice when multiple locations of the same restaurant are all great!

Kate Voegele - Don't Look Away
Today is my day to do a product review...so I'm hoping talking about a CD counts. I was watching "One Tree Hill" this week and Kate Voegele (Mia) sang. I was reminded of how amazing her voice is. I went out and bought her CD the very next day. Every song she sings is as good as the next. I don't often spend money on CDs but I am really glad I bought this one!

The site is sooooo cute! It is really new still but what's there is great. I tried out a few of the games and liked them all. I've been trying to convince people I know to sign up but haven't had any luck yet. Maybe some of you could sign up and we could play games against each other!

Wow, I am so glad we picked "The Changeling". It was an amazing movie. Yet again, Angelina Jolie was brilliant. I have never seen her not do a FANTASTIC job.
It was a little bit long but I didn't even notice until the movie was over and I checked the time.
If you are going to see a movie anytime soon, consider this one!

DasheDesigns' Etsy Shop
She just opened her Etsy shop in April of this year and the pieces are fantastic! Her pieces are slightly more expensive than most of the shops I go to but this is because they are way more intricate and made of higher quality materials.
A few pieces I love are the Antalya bracelet, The Miami necklace, the Prague earrings in shaded grey and the Virginia Beach earrings in Blue III.
