Whew! I am so going to have to find a way to wind down after today, what a rush!I walked Louie at 5:30am,  I worked all day-busting my butt to get everything done in time for my vacation, came home and took my final exam-took me 4 hours, ugh. I wrote my brother David a letter and made some sort of decor with an old vase and some sticks. I have been going list crazy trying to get everything done before vacation, tomorrow is laundry/cleaning/errand day, after work of course. Thursday I have to pack and then we are taking Becky out for her Birthday, which is really today and Friday, Friday is our ten year anniversary! I honestly cannot believe it. We have been together longer than most people have been married! Okay, not really but still. Friday is also the start of many guest posts that I have in store for you lovely readers, they are all amazing bloggers and I am so excited to see what they come up with (some I already know, and they are going to be really cool!).

And what do we have here? Lessons in fashion blogging. Que perfect lighting, the ultimate girly outfit, the first picture of me in heels in months, the most amazing purse ever, and what do I do? I squint! And I forget to ask Kyle to take pics of the shoes, they are so cool! I can walk in these without falling, and they are three different colors-like my hair! Hahaha, I am so easily amused. Seriously, we went to Target last night and I was unnecessarily excited about the Wild Berry Kix that were on sale.

Anyway, back to the outfit. I just acquired this skirt on my last thirfting trip with Kyle and it is perfect for work! It has the cutest bow print and I love the length! I had to wear my bow-top with it, even though I didn't bother to tie the bow part.

I am seriously so excited right now! I am FINALLY done with Summer classes, it felt like it would never end. I have been so motivated this week, I am bummed that I won't have time to go to the gym this week, but I am planning on lots of exercise on vacation, and lots of outfits! I planned out eight outfits composed of items that will be remixed over and over so I have less clothing to pack. I gotta make room for my books right? Okay stay tuned, I am hoping for one, maybe two more posts and then I am off to camp around various parts of the mitten with three smelly guys, woot!

  12. Nice bag! :) And it matches your top perfectly.

    Is Friday really your tenth anniversary?! It's mine, too! Robin and I got married on 8/19/01. How interesting that both of our lives coincided on that particular day.

  17. wait, so you have been friends with her for 10 years or in a relationship for 10 years? I'm confused!! Either way that is really awesome.

    This is a beautiful outfit you are wearing. I love it. I have noticed that recently you've been posting very lovely and modest outfits too!!! how cool! It's so ladylike (granted you are always a lady anyway, but these outfits lately have been so feminine).

Nothing wrong with being uber excited about Berry Kix being on sale...I got just as excited that tide was on like mega sale at Target the other day...ha, hooray for the simple pleasures, right?

    Btw Sara, I'm not sure if you joined my giveaway girl! You commented saying you were my follower, but I'm not sure you wanted to enter. You didn't tell me which 2 bracelets you wanted to win which was mandatory to enter.

    Please clarify girlie! I'd love it if you joined! <3
