French Quarter

Hello there! It's been such a dreary, rainy, cool weekend. It cooled WAY down...it was in the 90's and VERY humid Monday-Thursday, and then Thursday on my commute home I got stuck in an awful thunderstorm, with on and off torrential rain. The storm brought in a cold front, and it cooled way down. The high is 60 today! I really wanted to take walks today & yesterday, but was unable to, due to the rain. 
Yesterday I did cleaning and laundry, Bob and I found a new used car for me(!), and we also went out for a couple of drinks. I had such a long, busy, stressful week at work, and it was such a relief when the work week ended. It's also a HUGE relief that we found a car for me!! 
Mine broke down twice on interstates in the past couple of months, so I had had it with that car. Now that I have such a long commute, I can't have that big risk of breaking down again. Breaking down on a highway is really scary, too. I even had to borrow my grandmother's car all weeke to get to work. I got a used Honda Acura, which is supposed to be an outstanding car. 
This week upcoming week Bob and I will be going to Panera with my parents and grandmother for dinner, and then on Saturday night we're going out to dinner with my extended family for my other grandmother's birthday. I also have to take my new car for inspection, which is oh, so much fun.
In the pictures below I'm wearing my beloved Trashy Diva French Quarter Annette dress that I bought a couple of years ago on Poshmark. I adore this French Quarter print. I'm a sucker for beautiful landscape/city prints, and have a few of them. I also love pairing this big, chunky fruit necklace with this dress. The necklace is reproduction, and I also got it a couple of years back.
