hello world

i am alive. i apologize for my weekly blogging droughts - work has been exhausting & by the time i get home, i'm more than ready for tv time with B.

currently obsessed with:

{adding a little glitter to your ring finger nail}

{this bcbg pleated maxi skirt}

{these elizabeth & james eyeglasses}

i literally cannot wait for fall fashion.
dying to wear amazing jackets, wide-leg trousers, faux fur, leather boots & booties.
plus whatever else that fantastic season brings!

however, this morning i'm up early & ready to enjoy a sunshine-filled day with my girlies! recently, i've most enjoyed waking up by 7:30 on saturdays, my husband does not understand it the least bit. there's something rewarding about having a load of laundry finished by 8:15. hey, the early bird gets the worm, right?

currently, i'm sitting on our patio, overlooking the town of delafield, enjoying a very large bowl of cheerios. it's a beautiful morning - the church bell just rang (signaling 8:30), birds are chip-chirping at each other and those late-summer cicadas have made their arrival. my mama most always has a cup of coffee on the front porch this time of year; i can still remember the feel of the cool concrete on my toes while sitting next to her as a child. i love memories like that.

{side note: those cicadas remind me of going back to school - yuck. yet, they also remind me of this time last year when B & i were planning the last details of our wedding - yum.}

speaking of wedding, i just received great news from our photographer (krakora studios) that our wedding is going to be featured on Style Me Pretty! i'm totally jazzed - will keep you posted on details!

this afternoon, i'm making the trek back to madison for a pool day with two of my best girls - molly & krystle. i can't wait for lots of laughter & lots of sunshine!

f to the r-i-d-a-y!

happy friday dolls! wahoo!
did everyone have a good week? is it just me, or does it seem like it's monday and then suddenly friday? husband & i were talking about that last night - 
about how quickly your life passes you by. 
so, enjoy every single second.

{us then}

{us now}

isn't it crazy how much you can change as a person in just a few years! ahh!

my latest obsession is ordering fabulous clothes found on eBay.
{thanks to ashley of 12:34 wishes}
shhh. don't tell my husband. ;)
i'll post pix when they arrive.

have a fabulous weekend!

road trip!

weekend activity: road trip to indiana!

my sissy & her boyfriend moved to indiana this weekend, so we went along for the ride!
{husband helped with the loading & unloading, 
while mama and i lent a hand with the unpacking}
there's something about setting up a home that makes me all fuzzy inside!

although i will miss them dearly, their new place is adorable & i wish them nothing but happiness! xo m&t!

on a side note, it's hotter than you-know-what here. i attempted to catch a few rays today, but i think heat stroke was about to set in after 10 minutes. fail.

due to the heat, husband & i will be enjoying an ice cream treat tonight. after all, it is national ice cream day, {i promise i didn't make that up}. i think we're going to try this ice cream shop - has anyone been?

stay cool!
