Dots came to visit me at the library where I spent the weekend studying for my nursing finals. I finished the semester up last week and I'm busy enjoying Christmas Break! :)

Are you in the middle of finals week? If so, then you've got this!!!! Push through the tough week because the reward at the end is sweet! And make sure you treat yourself to snacks, breaks, water, and a cute (comfy!) outfit... you will feel loads better!

Formula 1

Well, it happened. Circuit of the Americas opened for its inaugural race weekend Friday, November 16, 2012! Racing is something I can share with my dad (he's a car guy/big fan). I'm all he's got, so I'm pretty sure he's glad I get into it. IT WAS AWESOME! Friday and Saturday were qualifying races and other various events; Sunday was US Grand Prix! In case you're wondering, there's NASCAR (american hobby.. think Jeff Gordon), Indy 500 (Helio Castroneves drives these), and then there's Formula One. F1 is the most watched motorsport in the world and this is the first track in the United States... a great one at that!

We had a blast!! We attending qualifying Saturday and the big race Sunday as we watched Lewis Hamilton take home the win! To make things better, it was Daddy's birthday over the weekend! Happy Birthday to you!!!!

Leather and layers
Ladies, if the leather jackets, fast cars, and attractive international fans aren't enough to draw you to the sport, I suggest you take a look at the drivers...... I mean.......

Sebastian Vettel, German driver for Red Bull and Jenson Button, Mercedes Benz driver from Australia. And this is only the beginning.... :)

The races next year are November 15, 2013. You're welcome.

I'm sure many of you already know, but an H&M opened in Austin, TX!!!! As I have been living under a rock for the past few weeks, when Dots told me, this news came as a complete shock! I was thrilled and immediately made plans to stop by on my way home for Christmas break... ultimate finals reward! It was also my first time exploring The Domain, and I am in love!

Dallas and Houston may have gotten them first, but I am so grateful to have one in ATX! I used to only get my H&M fix when I travelled to NYC, Las Vegas, abroad, etc. Right now their sale is ROCKING! Great party dresses and blazers for under $20!

I walked away with a great wide brim black wool hat ($7!!! stay tuned!) and some cute outwear for my momma! Great day and perfect way to kick off the break!

Sexiest Man Alive

On newsstands now!
Congrats, Channing Tatum, People's 2012 Sexiest Man Alive! We were especially happy with the choice as we've actually seen him in person. Take a look at our exciting celeb moment on the SXSW red carpet for 21 Jumpstreet!

no zoom.

Channing was GREAT with the crowd! Super friendly and spent as much time signing and taking pictures as possible (unlike Jonah Hill...)

Fun day!!!! This is making us seriously crave a celeb encounter.. what's next?!
