As I told you, my bestie and I had a get-a-way to visit a few friends. It was only a few days, but a much needed few days. Overall we had a great time. I LITERALLY did not want to leave the beach….they had to practically drag me away. I don’t know what it is about the beach, but I had to get there before the summer was out….Glad I made it. It was exactly what I needed to get me back on track.


OK. So I didn’t just get paid, but it was Friday. We got back from our get-a-way to Florida (photos to come) on Friday. Had just enough time to come in, eat, unpack (which usually takes me a few days), straighten up, and get ready for a gathering at a friends house. It was the perfect way to end my “vacation” before heading back to work on Saturday. Have had these studded mules for years now, and I am madly in love with them at the current time. I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend!

My brother decided to treat his girls (his lady, my sister and I) to dinner last night. It was totally last minute, as it was past 7 when we were deciding whether to eat in, or go out. He ended up taking us to a quaint sushi spot, called Zuma; and the cuisine was awesome. We shared a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, Edamame to start with, and probably enough rolls to feed a small village. I’m only joking, but we did have quite a bit. So, I never get photos snapped when I’m going anywhere; so I had my sis-in-law snap a couple. I will give my disclaimer now…the battery on my camera was dying..and fast. It would only stay on long enough to MAYBE snap a photo, so I only have 2 photos that were captured in enough time. Also, the lighting in my house was horrible in some spots (ended up auto lightning one photo). I now know where NOT to take pictures.

I hope you lovely people enjoy the rest of your week. I am writing to you all, when I should be packing my bag (but that’s how much you all mean to me). My bestie and I are headed to Florida in the AM to see some friends of ours for a few days. Its a much needed get-a-way. So I will see you all when I get back! Adios 🙂

So fall is literally just around the bend. My anxiety has been ridiculous. I get this way towards the end of every summer. Fall and winter are my favorite seasons of fashion (though I adore dresses in the summer). So I have a list of things I really want to take me into fall, but shoes have been my obsession. Every time I go into a store, or do my online browsing, I go straight for footwear. So I have quite a few pairs from I would LOVE to get my hands on….and this is just ONE online store. So imagine the plethora of others I have viewed, as well as yet to see!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
