Tuescher's Truffles, High Waist Jeans, and What to do if you don't like your friend's friends

Woo Hoo!

We're having girls night tonight and I am so excited. We have a great group of friends in Austin, and for whatever reason I don't get to see them as much as I would like... so tonight all of us girls are meeting for Tapas! I cannot wait, as I already work downtown, I pretty much just have to hang out until the other girls get off work and can get through traffic to get here. This would be the perfect time to do some shopping... however I am not shopping, so hopefully my girls will get here soon (otherwise I may have to stop by Teuschers and pick up a champagne truffle just because). I loved seeing the awesome window displays at the Teuschers in Rockefeller Center on my way to work, and I was thrilled to see one opening in down town Austin... seriously I must go there soon!

On to better things, I've mentioned my big budget fail this month... part of that was a pair of high waist wide leg jeans similar to these but without the gold trim.

 I love these jeans they are so comfortable! Big Bonus they were $15 at TJ Maxx... I mean that's practically free, and I hate jeans I think they are so uncomfortable, so to find a comfy pair for cheap...I couldn't say no. Excuses aside, as much as I love them I'm late to the high waist trend... what should I wear them with? Right now I'm wearing them with this blouse, and a white caridgan, and I've tried the blouse tucked in to show of the high waist and it looks okay (my co-worker says it looks great), but I keep untucking it, which is fine, except then these great pants sort of end up looking like mom jeans... 

Any input? Any suggestions? So many of my basic tees are in black or dark grey that I'm afraid I have nothing to wear my super cute new jeans with! Aack!

On a much shallower note, I'm suffering a dilemma that many of us have suffered. I have a friend, who has best friends, whom I cannot stand. I think they are bossy, and rude, and always have to be the center of attention. They are the type of people who sit at a table of eight and pull two others into a private conversation to the exclusion of everyone else at the table. Honestly, I just think they are beyond rude. However, they are fabulous friends to my friend. I am thankful that she has such great girlfriends, and lucky for me these friends live out of town so they aren't here very often, but whenever they are here I want to make myself scarce. The challenge is that I don't get to spend as much time with my group of friends as I would like... so whenever we can get together I want to be there... does anyone have any great tips for being charming, and sweet and ever so courteous to afore mentioned friends?

I love that purple top. Actually I'm going to advise you do the opposite--if they are rude/obnoxious types I would simply not give them the time of day. You'll find that they will end up being nicer to you for it. Really truly ignore them except don't be rude. xoxo

Thanks so much for the tips on how to flavor my eggs. The ginger sounds great, I'll give it a shot next time!

If you don't want to miss out on seeing the friends you care about, I would say just grin and bear them. I've been there. A couple glasses of bubbly helps. Ah ha: )
