Hi all! Hope everyone had a great 4th of July! Our whole weekend got turned upside down when we were faced with the news that my husband's car was definitely done...we had to either pay an enormous amount of money to get a new engine (like more than the 10 year old car is worth) or buy a new car. We chose the latter. After many hours of searching (both with three kids in tow and not...thank you grandma and grandpa for taking our three munchkins off our hands for a few hours so we could seal the car deal on our own) we finally found a car for an amazing deal and I now have one happy husband. His birthday happens to be in about 2 weeks so I guess I'm all set in the gift-giving department...happy birthday to him! =) We ended up getting a 2012 Hyundai Genesis...it's a pretty sleek looking car and he looks good driving it...fits him well!
Even with all the car craziness we were able to fit in some fun family activities to celebrate the 4th...we went to a pancake breakfast with my parents in their neighborhood, we went in the backyard and ran through the sprinklers, we had a family movie night complete with Orange Dreamcicle smoothies...and I even talked hubby into helping me detail my car inside and out...looks brand new now! It was a fun day until Josh got called in at midnight last night to see a patient...party over. =(
I have two outfits to share from the weekend...first up is from Saturday when I had my hair appointment (notice the "done at the salon" hair) and we went car shopping:
-Ikat print Tank-J Crew Factory
-Cropped Pants-J Crew Factory
-BP "Tee" Sandal-Nordstrom
-Necklace and Bracelets-Tiffany
I decided to dress in my red, white and blue for church on Sunday:
-Seychelles "Purr" Wedge Sandals-Amazon
-Earrings-J Crew Factory
This was probably my boldest attempt at pattern mixing yet...kinda fun! Not that this is super bold or anything...for me it was though!
Did anyone find anything they couldn't live without at the Anthro sale this morning? There wasn't anything on my "must-have" list that hit sale so I passed. I just barely got around to stopping by Anthro yesterday with a bag-full of returns anyways! I did try a few things on when I was there yesterday and found a couple new things to add to my long-running wish-list though (of course) including this beauty:
It's hot as hot can be here in the bay area this week...we've got plans to go to the splash park with friends on base tomorrow and then to the neighborhood pool to meet up with some more friends on Thursday. Gotta find ways to keep cool around here! Hope you're surviving the summer heat wherever you are and having a great week so far!!!
