Weekend Recap

Monday, Monday.  Not happy to see you, I do declare.  Even though I didn't utilize my free time as I might have wished, a boring weekend of doing nothing is still 100 times better than Monday.  Can I get an 'amen'?!  Some highlights of the weekend include ::

  • It rained cats and dogs on Friday night (tee hee) but we dodged some pretty high winds, thankfully.  
  • Mexican food + errands equaled in a pretty decent Saturday afternoon.  Not to mention the weather was in the low 70s and it felt glorious!
  • Husband did a fine job, a fine job indeed, at finishing up the surround sound/TV move situation. Who needs a professional when you've got a handy husbadge?  No more exposed TV cords - he hid those babies in the wall.  Awesome.
  • Parks and Recreation marathon, thanks Netflix!
  • Brunch with family at Toast - we celebrated a birthday, ate lemon souffle pancakes and had a lovely time.
  • Da Bears!  'Twas nice to watch a Bears game in which a) Cutler did very well (if you can forgive those first few downs) and b) they kicked ass! Woo!

Not much this weekend but it was nice.  How were your weekends? I'd love to hear!

I'm thinking some time away from this blog of mine might be necessary over the coming weeks.  I've lost some inspiration, the discipline and the ambition.  I plan to test the waters of not blogging as much and hope that you guys can stick with me as I do.  Keep checking back though, you never know when a post might pop up!

Last, happy birthday, Hadley!! Here's a little birthday dance for you.

Friday's Fancies

Back To School

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6

Happy Friday, everyone!  The short week seemed to fly by for me but I am ever so thankful for the weekend being here.  We don't have much planned other than some finishing touches on a home project and some brunch with my mother-in-law on Sunday.  Other than that, the weekend is wide open and I'm so thankful for that.  

This week's Friday's Fancies is, in case you couldn't tell, back to school.  Now I'm long since out of school but I couldn't help but join in on the fun as it's always a good time to shop for "back to school" outfits.  Am I right, or am I right?  My husband told me that it still makes him nervous to think of back to school shopping and I can totally relate to that.  How does it make you feel?  If I were heading back to school this year, I'd gladly sport all of this Madewell stuff (exception being the jeans of course) all school year long.  

What are you up to this weekend? Whatever it is, I hope you have a fantastic time!

Fab Fall Looks

Holy me oh my.  This look is layered perfection!  Via

The colors + stripes = swoon!  Via

The cozy navy sweater and the mustard bag is such a perfect fall combination.  Via

Ok, I'm starting to see a theme here.  Obviously I plan to layer chunky sweaters over denim shirts and throw in some oxfords or booties here and there :)  Via

What are you planning to sport this fall? Can you believe it's only a tad over 2 weeks away?!

Weekend Recap

Happy Tuesday, friends! It's not every week I get to say that - it's kind of nice.  How were your weekends? Mine was...rainy.  And...kind of lonely.  And now that I've bummed you out considerably, here are some highlights ::

  • Reading Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer - I know I'm pretty late to this party but any time is a good time to read some Krakauer.  I'm not quite done but I've reached the climax and it's all downhill (literally, sorry about that pun) from there.  I do appreciate being able to read for hours on the couch on a rainy day, don't you?
  • Watching movies - another pastime that I truly appreciate on a rainy day/weekend. I watched Friends with Kids (all-star cast but it was very surprising to see Kristin Wiig in a role where she wasn't funny) and The Romantics, both of which were pretty decent, especially when you're home alone for the weekend with nothing much to do.
  • Shopping - I hit up the sales but sadly only scored some half-price underthings from Gap Body.  
  • Birthday party - Saturday night I joined some friends at Danny Macs for some pizza and "crack sticks" with good friends.  It was an awkward start (*ahem*, random tweaker, I'm talking about you) with a strong finish.  Happy birthday, Billy!

Other than that I did some bathroom cleaning, took walks in the park with Stevie and listened to some great music at full blast.  But I must admit, I'm extremely happy to have the husbadge home and to not feel so lonely anymore.  How were your weekends? Awesome, I hope :)  

Here's to a great short week ahead!
