Thoughts For Friday

Sep 13, 2013

Happy Friday Dolls.  Is everyone ready for the weekend?  I know I sure am.  This weekend the hubs and I are celebrating our 6 year wedding anniversary.  I can not believe it has been 6 years since our wedding day and 12 years we have been together.  Time flies!  We are going out to dinner tonight which should be fun- minus the fact that I can’t drink, but oh well I will at least be a cheap date this anniversary!

Last night I stopped by the C. Wonder store opening downtown on King Street.  Can I just say I am so excited we are getting a C. Wonder.  I loved their Home section, there were so many goodies I wanted and the prices are great.  That’s my girl Caycee front and center, she was  my side kick for the night!

I wore my favorite BB Dakota Noland Dress to the event.  It is finally back in stock at Social Dress Shop.  You can’t beat it for the price, it is such a versatile dress.  I am smitten with the rich green color for Fall and think it will be cute with tights and booties as well.  I wear a size small and it still works pregnant but may not fit me much longer while preggo.  Small fits great not pregnant though.

I finally decided to jump on the Fall train and painted my nails a Fall Color this week, I mean it is September and all.  This is one of my new favorite nail polish colors for Fall, OPI Malaga Wine.  It truly is the perfect red.  And of course I had to get my first Pumpkin Spice latte too.

We got our first BlaBla doll for Baby Girls nursery.  I love BlaBla dolls so much.  I want an entire collection of them, Layla Grace has a great collection online.

 Next up I want the Bunny and Elephant!

I picked up my first pair of flats for the Fall.  I have been yearning for a pair of D’Orsay Flats.  There are so many options out there but these Madewell Beauties won me over.  Get a pair fast because they are selling out quickly,  only a few sizes are left.   I went with the dark river color, it is supposedly a dark navy/gray  which I thought would look great with everything!

We got our ottomans back for the den and I could not be happier with them.  I love the fabric we chose and the size is just perfect in our small den.

For all you local ladies, I wish you would please join me at the Wine, Women and Shoes event in a few weeks.  It is guaranteed to be an amazing time- what is better than wine and shoes with tasty food?   Plus I will be strutting it on the catwalk which should be comical at 8 months pregnant!  It’s for a great cause so come on out!

You can purchase tickets HERE.


Its a good thing I am not a legit fashion blogger because I am so awkward in front of the camera.  Here is my snapshot for the event.  Of course Sterling had to make a cameo- stuffing his face!

 Pretty sure I am making this Kale Ceasar Salad this weekend, looks amazing!

    Happy Anniversary! When I saw your nail polish I said to myself "that looks really pretty" and made a note to pick it up the next trip out. Fast forward a few hours and as I was going through my polishes I found that I already own this color! It's a new purchase that I haven't worn yet. Like you, I was waiting 'til Fall šŸ™‚ Love your blog. Cheers! Jen
