Color Muse Emerald Green

After visiting the Emerald Isle (aka Ireland!) I really started loving the color Emerald Green. I have to say that Ireland is very green but a different type of green than we see in the States. The color is deeper and richer than you would think. Here is some Emerald inspiration! 

She looks like an Irish Princess! 

Sold Out :( so sad!

Color Muse

Color Muse is a new blog post that I will be posting every week! I was inspired by the idea of color, it seems that every season the fashion world comes up the the latest and newest color that will be the seasons most used color. Muse is an uncommon word that means to meditate or comment thoughtfully on something, my something is Color! I will pick a color every week that inspires me in some way. The post will be about all things in that color; it could be a picture, a piece of food or clothing! I am very excited about this new weekly post! Please follow me and if you have a color you are loving, let me know and I will check it out!

Weekend Getaway

We started out the new year right! The Hubs and I decided to start our year by getting away from the world. We didn't go far but we sure had an amazing time. We ate, relaxed and enjoyed getting away. 
 The Grand Plaza Hotel in Branson was a great deal! I booked our hotel through Expedia and found a great deal on a King size room with a jacuzzi! My Hubs had some doubts at first but it was worth it.
The jacuzzi was amazing and I had a bath bomb from Lush that I had not used yet. I used the bath bomb and it made the whole room smell amazing! We spend the night relaxing and watching Forest Gump. 

Before we left for dinner we had to make sure we looked good ;) 

You can find this cool ride at the Branson Landing! At first I thought the balloon could actually take off and fly away...but I was wrong :( It was cool because you could go really high but that is all it does. 

We ate dinner at Waxy O'Shea's on the Landing and had a great time. It wasn't as good as Ireland but the Beer Cheese Soup was Amazing!

A typical Irish breakfast (again better in Ireland)

Donegal Club Sandwich

Beer Cheese Soup, the best tasting thing I had for dinner. It was super rich but very delish!

We woke up the next morning to have breakfast on the 9th floor. You could see so much from so high up. I bet it is beautiful in the fall.

 We then went to the Tanger Outlets to the Disney store and saw this super cute suitcase!
I love Star Wars! 
 We decided to then go to Yankee Candle! The Hubs and I have been on a "candle kick" lately and are enjoying all things candle!

We rounded out our trip with Chicago style pizza. Now, the Hubs is from a town about 45 minutes from Chicago. He was very skeptical but ended up enjoying the pizza. I wasn't impressed sadly :( 

We had such an amazing time and have decided to try it again in February! We are thinking Kansas City! If you have any awesome placed to eat, sleep or entertain in KC, please leave a comment!
