Hello, Three Day Weekend!

Hello there! Last night Bob and I went to a local bar. I saw a girl there who I used to be friends with, but hadn't seen her in about six years. She's lived in different areas all over the country since then, since she was in the military. It was nice to get to catch up a bit. 
Today I'm going to be doing my usual Saturday tasks of cleaning the apartment, laundry, and working out. I'm not sure yet what we'll be doing tonight. I'm so very glad that our three day weekend has started!! How nice to have an extra day off. On Sunday my parents are having a BBQ, and my grandparents are coming over. I can't wait to see my kitty and mom's dog! And on Monday my friend is coming over. 
We don't have any appointments until Wed, September 11, when we meet with a photographer. It's nice to have a little break from them. I really liked the DJ we met with on Thurs night.
In the pictures below, I'm wearing a top that I have in three colours. They look great tucked into skirts. I really love this shade of pink, and love the material at the shoulders.

The Brady Bunch House

Hello there! We're so close to Friday now, which makes me a very happy girl! Ha. 
Tonight I went to Panera with my parents and grandmother. I had my usual broccoli cheddar soup, with a side of bread. I never get sick of it! 
Bob and I are leaving in a couple minutes to go meet with a DJ. Hopefully when we get back home we'll get to watch some Breaking Bad!! There's only eight episodes in Season Five, and we finished the forth episode last night.
In the pictures below, I'm wearing my cute retro house print dress. I love retro style prints/styles. I also love lime green, and there's a lot of it in this dress! I think the ring I'm wearing goes pretty perfectly with the dress/belt. My dress reminds me of the Brady Bunch house, so that's why I titled this blog post as such. Ha.

Walking Rainbow

Hello there! Tonight I'm not doing much. Just reading and watching Breaking Bad with Bob. I got a package from Modcloth today! It was a coral coloured dress. Unforunatly, I'm returning it though. It wasn't flattering enough on me. 
I ordered a pair of Keds today, with an ice cream cone print on them! They were on sale for $35. They should be arriving next week. I can't wait. I've been getting a lot of use out of my sprinkle Keds. I really love them. They're so colourful and cute, and obviously match with a lot! Ha.
Tomorrow I'm going to Panera with my parents and grandmother. Yum! Then Bob and I are going to a meeting with a DJ.
In the pictures below, I'm wearing a dress that I recently wore in another blog post. I've been wearing it a lot, I really love it! The necklace, dress, sandals, and earrings all have rainbow colours in them. I never get sick of looking like a rainbow! Ha.

House Print/Sprinkle Sneaks

Hello there! Today just wasn't my day. It was one of those days were little things keep going wrong, and then it gets you thinking about the bigger things in your life that are bothering you. Hope tomorrow will be a better day! We are inching slowly closer to that three day weekend!
So, today during lunch break I sat outside under a tree to get some shade. I only sat there about five minutes or so, and then I went back inside. I discovered later on that I had sat on berries, because I had several red stains on the back of my dress! And I really love the dress I was wearing. When I got home from work I used a stain remover spray, and it did help. And I just threw it in the wash now, so hopefully there'll be nothing, or almost nothing left to the stains! 
Tonight I'm not doing much. Just working out and relaxing. Thursday night is our only wedding appointment this week. We're meeting with a DJ who lives a mile and a half from us, which is great that the drive is so close. His price is great, so I really hope that we like him, and will pick him. So far we haven't picked anything other than the wedding/reception sites. I'd really like to be able to make at least one more major decision soon!
In the pictures below, I'm wearing one of my four dresses with a house print. I hadn't tried to pair this dress with these sneakers before, but I like the combo.

Chocolate Oatmeal

Hello there! Bob and I are leaving soon to go see another florist. I hope she can give me some prices on the spot. I worked out and baked chocolate oatmeal cookies this morning. They are one of my fav kinds of cookies ever!
In the below pictures I'm wearing a pink shirt that I love. I don't really wear it in the summer, because of the 3/4 sleeve length. I love the empire waist and side ruching of the shirt. I of course love pairing it with this orange tank. Pink and orange is my favourite colour combo. And the bracelet pairs great with the two shirts. I got it from a cute little store on the boardwalk in Seaside Heights, about three years ago. The shop has since closed down. 
I'm of course dreading Monday...but, we have a three day weekend next weekend, which is oh so lovely!!!

New Purse

Hello there! I met with a florist today, and I'm also meeting with one tomorrow. The one I met with today does it on her own, as a part-time, side job. She doesn't work for a flower shop or anything. I saw her garden, which was sooo gorgeous! I'm waiting for an email from her with prices though. She didn't give me any price info while I was speaking to her. She did give me a flower arrangement though, which surprised me! It's pictured below.
 In the pictures below, I'm wearing a dress I've worn once before on my blog. I'm wearing it with different jewelry and shoes though. I love this colour! Such a perfect shade of orange. I wear this dress to work, but I could also wear it out/to parties, etc. I got it from Marshall's over a year ago; it's Calvin Klein. He makes such flattering dresses! I have three Calvin Klein dresses now that I've scored at Marshall's.
The purse in the pictures is new. It came today from Modcloth. I've been looking for a bright yellow purse for some time now. I saw this months ago on Modcloth, but didn't think it was worth the price for such a small one. So, I scored it on the 70% off sale- for $18.99! 
I bought the tin pictured below at Home Goods yesterday for $3.99. I love it! So cute and cheery. My mom and I both love cute tins, but she has A LOT more than I do! Ha.

Coral Dress

Hello there! We don't have any appointments tonight. Just going to work out and watch more Breaking Bad! I just finished a book, it's called "The Paris Wife." I had heard about it, because it had gotten so many great reviews. It was a really good read, very intriguing. It's always great to read a good, well-written book that you don't want to put down!
The dress in the pics below is one of my favourite dresses to wear to work! I love the style/shape of it. And the colour is outstanding! It's like a bright coral. I can't get enough of coral. I bought it at Kohl's probably about a year or so ago. I haven't found much of anything at Kohl's in a long time.
These black heels are my go to heels for work. They are comfortable, and of course they go well with a lot of my outfits.
