I am dressed like it’s in the 70’s or at least the 60’s, but actually you could see my breath—cold and rainy and windy.I always wonder when I see other bloggers in their outfit posts, what the weather was really like. Before my friend Gertrude snapped these pics she said, “Try not to look so cold.”

This night, we went out for my friend Tracy’s birthday! I feel like I’m celebrating someone’s birthday every week and I love it! I love giving presents, I love spending time with people who are dear to me, and I love not cooking and cleaning up after. Ha! And even though I wasn’t supposed to, I snuck a few bites of the best dessert I’ve had in a while. Brio does it right.

Last night I went to my first Stella and Dot party! It was so fun! I bought this bracelet in silver and love so many of their pieces! I am now thinking of having a show myself just because it was so fun and the quality was so high! I’d like to graduate from Forever 21 jewelry (though the have great stuff), and buy some items that will last me a little longer.

Have you shopped Stella and Dot? What do you love of theirs?

PS: apparently great minds think alike, because Tracy and I both wore our vegan leather pants. just be careful wearing those in your car with leather seats. Had to explain myself all night!

I may be wearing a cheery orange skirt, but don’t let it fool you. I’m kind of exhausted. Today has been one of THOSE days. You know the ones I mean. The kind where every little thing just sets you off and you would love to punch something. And then you flip right around and want to cry. And then you need a hug. Yeah. All that in a matter of a half an hour. It can really take it out of you! Though I’m sure none of you know what I speak of. ;) Anyway, my husband assures me that everything will be different tomorrow, so until then, I’m going to watch TV and not talk to anyone.

PS: I wrote this Sunday night, so I’m sure I’m fine by now. XO

10 Things

April 15, 2013

1: My new favorite drink is Bengal Spice Tea
2: Our latest Netflix addiction is “The West Wing.” I love watching a series from beginning to end at my leisure.
3: My current wrist selection is my MK watch and my Alex and Ani bracelets.
4: I made my fudge with Almond butter this time and it was even better than using peanut butter!
5: I’ve given up sugar for 3 weeks now and I’m still craving it like crazy. All I can think about is my Green Tea Frapuccino!
6: A small part of me is sad Spring is here because I’ll have to give up my pink vest for a while.
7: Look how cute this beach tote is! And here it is in white. So cute!
8: My favorite meal right now is a whole chicken in the crock pot with sweet potatoes and mashed potatoes and home-made gravy.
9: I highly recommend working with a stylist at Nordstrom. I have loved being put in things I would never try on myself. It’s opened me up to new possibilities and it’s enhancing my style.
10: My husband continues to do things to make me fall in love with him. He has such a high moral character that I’m so proud to be his wife.

Gap Bright Flats

April 11, 2013

My friend Anna just got these bright coral flats and I thought they were so cute! Honestly, it made me want bright coral to be my color for Spring, but I’d have to invest too much money to make that happen. Ha! And these yellow ones are just so bright and happy. They make me want to go out and buy some daisies? Don’t you think daisies are the friendliest flower?

Woke up this morning and knew it was going to be a beautiful day and got so excited about choosing the perfect dress to wear. We went to Starbucks and Bob did some work and I read and life was very similar to when we were in Florida a couple months ago. It was lovely.
