Life Lately

Hello Monday!  I'm trying to be cheerful, but Mondays are hard y'all.  I feel like we need to petition someone to create a 4 day work week, 3 day weekend. Anyone with me?

We've been getting back into the swing of things after vacation which for me, meant a return to barre.

 And this morning Niki kicked my butt!  It felt good.  i always leave class feeling ready for the day.  And to be honest, I was still feeling it in my quads most of today.  #barresohard #purebarrelascolinas

Fall is here and I thought it was time to break out the boots.  Hooray!  Boot weather is here #kindof #itwasalmost90today

And Fall outfit #2.  I was so excited to finally break out this Treasure & Bond top that I bought during the Nordstrom anniversary sale.  Friday was the perfect day to do it.  No meetings at work meant it was a jeans day for me.  I try to dress them up when I do wear them.  Adding the necklace and the shoes helped elevate the look a bit.
 Saturday night we went to our last Rangers game of the season.  We always love a night at the ballpark.  Unfortunately, the Rangers lost Saturday but they've already clinched a playoff spot so I guess they've already won.

Sunday was a low key day.  We didn't really have anything on the agenda except heading to Southlake for lunch and then taking my laptop to the Apple Store to see if they could fix the issue.  A low key Sunday when the temps are in the mid-80s calls for cute birks, some denim shorts, and fun jewelry.

We went to TruFire for lunch and lucky me, it was still brunch so they were serving $2 mimosas.  #heckyeah

Oh Apple Store.  I love you and I hate you.  It is always so crowded in there, I cannot stand the wall to wall people.  On the plus side, they were able to diagnose the problem and instead of having to shell out for a brand new laptop, I got away with replacing the had drive for $150.  #whew #dodgedabullet #therosegoldonewasprettythough

My bright moment of the afternoon?  Starbucks now offers almond milk.  I splurged on a little treat and got it with almond milk.  Thank you Starbucks!

Sunday dinner is one of my favorite things.  Since we're into Fall, I was wanting something heartier and Phillip was too so I made meatloaf and roasted broccoli.  It was delicious.  And he is enjoying the leftover meatloaf for sandwiches for lunch.

I have been gaining and losing the same 5 pounds all summer and I have had enough.  I want to reach goal.  No more guesstimating.  The scale is coming out and I am measuring and tracking everything.

The nights have been cooling off so we have left the patio door open and Jack has been spending hours out there just relaxing on his favorite chair.  Or trying to eat that palm plant.  #hecan'tstayaway #evenwhenIspraythewater
I took a cue from Cassie over at Hi Sugarplum and paired this striped top with this floral skirt for work and I am loving this look.  I've never mixed prints like this before but I like it.
 What's on tap the rest of this week?  Lots of work.  My work calendar this week is crazy.  I need to start working in a few more runs during the week - we've got a 5K coming up in a month!  I'm not abandoning barre though :)  I think I've got 5 classes scheduled this week?  #alittleobsessed
I think we're going to try to get to the movies this weekend to see The Girl on the Train and then the weekend after that we're going to head to the Texas State Fair #iwantacorndog
We're also rent house hunting so we're constantly looking for options and driving through neighborhoods.  Fingers crossed the right thing opens at the right time!
Have a great week everyone!
