One. I woke up this morning feeling really well rested. I don't know about you but that is a rare feeling for me. I loved it! I had a great run because of it!
Two. Our heater went out AGAIN on Thursday night right before bed. I woke up to a 58 degree house yesterday morning. That feels colder than it sounds, just so you know. The weather has only been in the 60's here this week so it's a toss-up which was warmer...my house or outside. A call was put in to the heater repairman and thankfully he finally showed up at my house at 7:15pm last night to fix it. We're toasty warm once again.
Three. Due to the frigid temperatures in my house yesterday I dressed in winter clothing to keep warm. I pulled out a few purchases that I fully blame on other bloggers (not really, but they looked so darn cute in these things that it was sorta their fault..lol). After seeing Jan and "modernmom" look so cute in their Petticoat Cardigans I had no choice but to track one down as well...no choice I tell ya! I even went as far as picking up the top Jan wore under her cardigan when she posted it as her OOTD (the Soldierly Sparkle Top in ivory). I couldn't resist! I already owned the top in pink and loved it so I knew I'd love the ivory too. I happened to get lucky this week and got a PA on the top when it hit 2nd cut during Anthro's sale on Tuesday so that made the find even better! I am thrilled I was able to find this cardigan and have to give props to Jan for this look today (as I pretty much copied her head to toe):
-Soldierly Sparkle Top-Anthropologie
-Always Skinny Jeans-Gap
Four. I am on the hunt for a new daily bag. The one I use now recently got a rip inside it which keeps causing my items to fall in between the purse and the lining...super annoying! I got it from Gap for $20 on sale last summer so the fact that it lasted this long is slightly impressive as it is. I'm in the mood for something bright and fun now that spring is upon us. I would also prefer not to break the bank for it (but am willing to splurge a little more than $20 this time around). I would love this new pink Coach bag I spotted and pointed out to my husband on our Las Vegas trip in February but don't think it's the right time for that just yet. This is definitely my dream bag right now though:
SO cute, right?!! So do you have any suggestions? Have you seen any cute ones around? What brands do you love and where do you get yours? I'm definitely looking for something to add a pop of color to my life.
Something maybe like these:
Nine West Pocket Change Four Poster Shopper Bag (in Papaya)
Nine West Fun and Fancy Tote (in Light Citron)
Five. Back in August I purchased a Groupon for Shabby Apple...I think I've mentioned it a few times before. Well, in the past few months I have purchased and sent back about 4 dresses that just didn't work for one reason or another using that Groupon. The dress I originally ordered went back because of sizing and when I tried to re-order it in the right size they were sold out. I went on to try a few other dresses in various sizes and nothing fit right. FINALLY that size I was looking for in the original dress MONTHS ago was restocked a few weeks ago so I ordered it when I sent back another dress that didn't work(Are you following?? Because I think I'm confusing myself). Anyways, I am happy to report that I can finally stop playing the order/ship-back/re-order game because the dress I received yesterday fit. YAY! Here's what my Groupon finally bought me:
Six. We had gelato for dessert tonight on our date night. It was divine. I had the "Carmel Salato" (Salted Carmel) and it was SOOO good. Is there anything better than gelato? Very few things I would say. I'm a sweets person so this was right up my ally.
Seven. Here's what I wore during the day today before date night:
And on me:
-Tank-Down East Basics
-Linen-Cotton Camp Carigan-J Crew Factory
-Ultimate Skinny Jeans-Banana Republic
-Seychelles Sweeping Stitch Heels-Anthropologie
I'm off to bed...we had a fun date night tonight but now I'm exhausted and ready to jump into bed and fall fast asleep. Hope you all had a great Saturday!
