Tropical Mari

Hello there! I'm back from my vacation to New Orleans & Nashville. I got back on Saturday night. I wasn't sure if we'd be leaving on time on Sunday, 10/8, or even leaving on Sunday at all, because of the predicted New Orleans hurricane, but thankfully the hurricane bypassed New Orleans. I was so happy to still get to leave on time on Sunday, and happy for the people of NOLA, who definitely do not need to deal with another hurricane, ever! 
I had a good time on my trip. I went to NOLA with my mom, and then we flew together last Thursday to Nashville to visit my sister, and my aunt & cousin who live in Texas flew in, as well. I don't get to see my aunt & cousin much, so it was really nice to get to see them, even though I only did for 24 hours! They got in Friday afternoon, and I left Saturday afternoon.
I'll post pictures from the trip soon and blog about what we did in those two southern cities.
One thing I will say now, NOLA was ridiculously humid while we were there, and next time I got there I think it won't be between June & October! 
This week has been CRAZY busy at work, with me trying to catch up on all the work that piled up while I was gone. I'm pretty much caught up now, which makes me feel a lot better!
It wouldn't have been as crazy if I didn't have to cut checks on Monday to vendors, that takes about four hours, and I never had to do that the day I got back from vacation before. 
But, the timing just worked out that way. Hopefully the timing doesn't work out that way again! The plus side to how crazy it's been is how fast the work days flew by this week! 
I can't wait for the weekend though; I'm really looking forward to hanging out with Bob all weekend. I missed him a lot!! We hadn't been apart that long in over eight years, so it felt really weird.
Tonight I went to a board meeting at work, so I didn't get home until 7:00. I did have time between work and the meeting though, so I ran an errand and just read in my car.
In the pictures below I'm wearing my new Bernie Dexter Mari dress. I love this color combination of orange, yellow, green & blue, plus the pretty tropical floral and fish print. I didn't even notice there were fish in the print until after someone mentioned it online! I don't come across many retro inspired prints I like with orange in them, so it's exciting when I do, and orange is one of my favorite colors.
