Oh hey, just me here. Trying to clean out my closet to help with the Home Purge of 2014 (why is it SO hard to get rid of clothes?), so I had to break out these Christmas Keds! Plus this outfit is totally perfect for the Memorial Day holiday next week, so some early planning on my part (confession: I just liked red and blue and white together)!

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Curry date night last night
  • Day OFF from work
  • Breakfast Bub’s Brunch with B, The Bestie (say that 5 times fast!)
  • 25% off Merona Target Cartwheel coupon until tomorrow…yes, please!
  • Sleeping during rainstorms
  • This Buzzfeed article on Taylor Swift (looooove her and true)!
Today’s not-so-fun highlights:
  • Mortgage meetings

Stay nice and dry this weekend, friends! I don’t know about you all, but this week has been super rainy here in Indianapolis! Any fun weekend plans to make me jealous while I do house prep and yardwork?


  • On Target item: Merona Sweater (exact)
  • Flower Necklace: Target (exact, but there is black, ivory, and blue too)
  • Jeans: Denizen, Target (exact – tall and short styles online too!)
  • Sneakers: Keds, Christmas present from my MIL (exact, red, black)

Jean Jacket Weekend








Thanks to Lowe’s for the beautiful brick background in today’s post…though it was an awkward few minutes while I took my photos.

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Last day of this CRAZY work week
  • Starting the process of getting our house ready for a sell/move is going to be better than I thought after meeting with our realtor last night!
  • Cajun tots for dinner? Okay with me!
  • Gorgeous weather (welcome spring/summer)
  • Wedding weekend for D + K! Super excited to celebrate with them!
  • Road trip coffees (and gummy bears for The Husband)
  • Happy (early) Mother’s Day to all the moms out there (but especially MY mom and my grandma, who read this blog daily)!
Today’s not-so-fun highlights:
  • Driving to Illinois (though I will enjoy it when I’m there)!

Hope you all get to soak up the sunshine this weekend! The Husband is a groomsman in a wedding for his college roommate this weekend, so we’re off to enjoy some Illinois time! What are you up to?!

What’s up 57 degree weather? Nice to meet you. You make for a fine opportunity for a dog walk with iced coffee. Someone remind me to not take my blog photos with a hat and shades again. It makes me look like I’m either 1.) a super shady individual or 2.) Burt Macklin, FBI agent (Parks and Rec anyone?).

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Seeing this hat on Merrick (from Merrick’s Art, she’s amazing) and running to your local Target an hour later and finding it on clearance
  • The embellished sweatshirt I’m wearing above (I’m going to wear mine into the ground…today’s look was casual, but I have a post coming Monday with it dressed up…get excited!)
  • Chicken curry salad + pretzel rolls from Whole Foods
  • Vegan (no sugar added) chocolate chip cookies from Whole Foods (I’m not vegan, but these are the BEST ever)
  • Warm weather and puppy walks
  • Dressing room try-ons for Instagram (gotta follow me here for these)
Today’s not-so-fun highlights:
  • Sad news from a friend
  • Said friend being too far away to hug

Have a lovely weekend everyone! We’re off to Turkey Run State Park tomorrow to hang out with The Fiance’s parents! Hiking, here we come!


  • On Target item: Xhilaration Embellished Sweatshirt (exact – $8 guys)
