Back to Basics


Today’s fun highlights:
  • Back to basics with this look
  • Dunkin iced coffees and sour cream donuts (I’m the epitome of health)
  • Birthday presents to yourself (example: the above purse)
  • Bagger Daves for date night (umm yum – here)
  • B’s Bachelorette Party Weekend!
  • Lunch with the besties complete with sweet potato fries
  • Target trips with said besties
  • Planning a week filled of red, white, and blue outfits for next week (my favorite color combo, you know)
Today’s not-so-fun highlights:
  • Trying to decide what to wear to B’s Bachelorette Party (good problem though!)

Happy weekend, friends!


Yay, Bikes!


True life: I love bikes (and polka dots and puppies and stripes and coffee and…), which is why I had to have this sweatshirt. I love bikes so much that while on a trip to San Diego, I discovered this bad boy of a magnet (here) and had to have it. It still is on my fridge.

They actually have a whole range of “Yay!” things (743 magnets at the time of this post), so you can get whatever you’re “Yay!” about. Yay! Sock Monkeys!, anyone?

And Yay! Target! is not on there. Or I would have that one too!


Actual Birthday Dress


What’s that? A new blog layout/design you see? I figured with a new house coming up next month, that this home on the internet could use a fresh coat of paint too. Hope you like it! Let me know if anything is buggy/weird!

This is the outfit that I actual wore for my birthday celebration two weekends back. I recreated the look this weekend to take pictures, so enjoy!


Crazy Town








Life update guys: it’s crazy town over here (but in a good way?)! You know we had our home inspection, which went surprisingly well given the age of the house. I worked a half day at work, rushed home to shave my legs (#girlproblems), and headed out for a night out on the town.

The Husband took me downtown for my birthday present (we always do “experience” presents) to see The Book of Mormon, which was! I also got tres leches cake for dessert!

Needless to say, I’ve been looking for some easy outfits to save on time lately, which is exactly what this one is. Dress, bright bag, and some heels. Done and done.


Red Striped Wednesday








Holy cats, how is it already Wednesday? Our home inspection for our new (to us) house is today, so The Husband and I took the morning off of work to go for a breakfast date and see the home one more time while the inspector was there. Keep your fingers crossed that it went well and that The Puppy won’t have to live in a cardboard box.

Or we can just move to Paris, where this outfit is perrrrfectly acceptable! Backup plans, my friends!
