Party of Fours

It's Friday eve! I don't know about you, but this week has taken copious amounts of caffeine just to make it through. With that being said, a real meaningful blog post was just not in the books for today. I barely got up when my five alarms went off this morning.
The good news is that tomorrow is a half day and I don't come back to work until Wednesday--hello mini vacation!

P.S. Originally the title was "party of four", but I felt like that made it sound like I was expecting twins or something, which I'm sooo not--expecting anything for that matter. Although, another puppy would be nice.
Four Nicknames
1. Big Al--given to me in my (very embarrassing) softball days. I was the smallest one on the field and all I did was pick flowers and do cartwheels. People at work call me Big Al on the reg and my family still calls me that to this day.
2. Little Bit--Coined by the people at work yet again
3. Little One--The youngest and smallest one at work will get you this nickname
4. Allie--Not a lot of people call me this, but I still get it every once in a while.

Four things in my bag 
1. My planner--I'm basically lost without it
2. Receipts--I could be classified as a hoarder
3. Toothbrush/toothpaste--hello I have braces!
4. Two pairs of sunglasses--always have to be prepared just in case one comes out broken

*I will be prepared the next time I play the "what's in your purse?" game*

Four movies I've watched more than once
I'd just like to point out that I watch a million movies more than once, but these are my faves.
1. The Wedding Date--I think this is the first movie I watched with my mom where I saw a naked butt!
2. Pitch Perfect--I honestly think the first one was better than the second one. I still enjoyed it, but the first one will forever be a classic.
3. How to Train Your Dragon--Toothless reminds me of Laney (my dog) I'm not sure why, but they are both black pets that become part of the family and are goofy.

4. Date Night--I could watch this over and over and never get tired. Maybe that's a lie, but probably
not. I quote this movie in everyday life #sorrynotsorry

Four favorite drinks
1. Water--always with lemon, never without

2. Iced Caramel Macchiato
3. Red Bull--sometimes coffee isn't strong enough
4. Margaritas--need I say more!?

Four Places I've traveled
Maybe I should rename this, four of the most exciting places I've traveled
1. Pittsburgh--Josh and I have gone every year for the past three years, so it's become a tradition
2. NYC--so thankful I took that trip in high school
3.Vegas--been there got (a few) Tshirts. I'm good for a while.
4. Avery Island--If you're ever in South LA take a trip. The most beautiful gardens and swamps. Just don't try the Tabasco Ice Cream. SO GROSS!

Four favorite songs (currently)
1. Honey, I'm good by Andy Grammar
2. Anything by Taylor Swift duh
3. Worth It by Fifth Harmony
4. Shut up and Dance by Walk the Moon

Four Favorite Blog Posts
2. Tulle'n around Town

3. Sippin' Pretty

4. The Wedding File

Four Things I'm Excited for This Year

1. Rebecca's Wedding--hello MOH status

2. Vacations--with Josh's family and mine and then me and Josh take one (that's not Pittsburgh) SO MUCH traveling to do!

3. Pittsburgh--we go every year!

4. My birthday duh--I will always and forever be excited about my birthday no matter how old I get!

Have a great "almost Friday"!


  1. I'm the same way about Vegas..I've been twice and both times I was SO ready to come home

  2. I love that you said your dog reminds you of Toothless. I have a black and tan doxie and she is like that too. ~Aimee from :)

  3. haha!! Party of Fours. I have yet to see Pitch Perfect 2 - dying to - but yes, I would think the 1st one is always better! :) Enjoy your long weekend!

  4. Love this. When I had braces I also had a toothbrush/toothpaste in my bag. Lol Tay Swift is my girl. Worth It by fifth harmony is a song my son & i jam to in the car lol

  5. Okay so when I first saw this title I thought it petits fours, so that'll let you know where my mind is today haha. I'm obsessed with Shut Up and Dance right now too!

  6. I love the idea of fours, it really ties everything together nicely! I'd love to steal this idea, but don't know if I could make it work due to my niche. I always love coming here and reading your lovely posts! :)
