Busy Week

Yet another super quick post... I was in St. Louis last weekend for a wedding and leave Friday morning for Chicago for my best friend Taylor's wedding. Last weekend I was just attending the wedding. This weekend I make my very first debut as a bridesmaid! Whoo! I am super excited.

Taylor chose the cutest black dresses (strapless, A-line perfection) for us from White House Black Market. Lots of people like to claim that their bridesmaid dresses can be worn again, but these truly can! (Thanks, Tay!) Still have lots to do this week... last minute errands, mani/pedi, lots of last minute running so the dress looks good! Now I'm off to bed- Night! :)

Currently Coveting- New Bike Style

Since summer is almost here, I finally decided it was time to start seriously looking for a new bike! I really wish I had the funds to buy an awesome new bike, but unfortunately I don't... so I turned to Craigslist. I found a red, vintage, women's road bike today and I'm going to look at it tonight. Wish me luck! Today's "Currently Coveting" is in preparation for my new (hopefully) ride!

Hello Humidity

Holy humidity... it's so muggy here! I just went for a quick run and am soaked in sweat... (attractive, I know...) The past couple of weeks we have had the craziest weather ever.

Not that drastic and super fast weather changes are out of the norm for Indiana. (Have you ever heard of the saying Hoosiers like to say? "Don't like the weather? Wait 5 minutes, it'll change.")

But lately it's been out of control. Crazy thunderstorms, almost freezing temperatures, back to hot and muggy the next day! Hopefully we can finally start having multiple sunny days in a row. My fingers are crossed!

Monday, Monday

I have exciting news! Last night Joe and I booked flights to San Francisco! A good friend of mine from Butler moved out there after graduation a few years ago and one of Joe's good friends moved out there recently... so we have people to stay/hang out with and I couldn't be more excited!
(Olive was really excited too... She could barely contain herself...)

I have been needing/wanting to take a vacation but couldn't think of what to do. Then my friend Emily (who lives in Oakland) suggested I come for a visit during September to celebrate our back to back birthdays. Our birthdays are three days apart.

So now I'm counting down until September and the awesome 25th birthday celebrations that will take place!

Happy Friday! I'm so glad it's the weekend! One of my best friends graduates from college tomorrow (after 6 years of school... she's a pharmacist now. So proud of her!) and one of my other best friends is in town for the occasion! I can't wait to see everyone. It will be lots of fun. On Sunday I am going to my parents house for Mother's Day. Anyone else have exciting weekend plans?

Currently Coveting- Summer Picnic Date

I have a thing for picnics. I think it stems from my childhood... my favorite summer activity when I was growing up was outdoor picnics on hot summers days. My Grandma and I would pack up sandwiches and other little finger foods, pack it all up in her vintage picnic basket, haul it outside with a big blanket, and sit under the beautiful weeping willow tree that was in her backyard.

Since I'm a pretty nostalgic person and I still love the ideas of picnics on beautiful summer days, I wanted to put together the perfect summer picnic date look.

Portland Trip

Here are a few pictures of my trip to Portland! If you've never been there before, I highly recommend going! It is so beautiful and so GREEN! Sorry for the short post today. Just a few trip highlights photos.

I finally made it to Voo Doo Doughnuts on my last night there. The one on the right was mine... voo doo doll filled with "blood" aka delicious raspberry filling.
