Life Lately

Happy Monday!  I am enjoying a day at home today.  I'm contemplating going for a run in a bit.  The weather here is starting to cool down...well, what we consider cooler in Texas (not in the 90s anymore - hooray).

I can't even tell you how crazy it is around here.  So much going on.  Final wedding prep and details, more progress on the house, and the newest thing?  I start a new job in 4 weeks.  Yikes!  So crazy, but all of it good.  I am so excited about this new position, but it's bittersweet because I am sad about leaving my current place.  It's been a great place to work these last four years.  Here's a little peek into our crazy, upside down life last week!


Barre.  Always barre.  I started on Monday and bonus, it was an Empower class!

The first thing I do when I get home from barre is to make a cup of coffee.  

I think I pushed it a little too hard on Monday at barre and my back started to hurt on Tuesday.  I stopped at the store and grabbed these.  Wow.  Oh wow these work.  By Wednesday evening I was starting to feel better.  I'm not 100% but it doesn't hurt to sit, stand, or walk anymore.

One of my Weight Watcher buddies recommended the teeny avocados from Trader Joe's.  I grabbed a bag of them last Sunday and made a new breakfast with them.  My version of avocado toast - an English muffin, a teeny avocado, and then I sprinkle the Trader Joe's Everything But the Bagel seasoning on it.  Oh it was so so good. 

Oh yeah, Labor Day Sale!   Y'all, I can't even with what is on sale.  So so many good things.

Bags!  Like my favorite Cay Tote and City Slim Clutch.

Need a bracelet?  The Plait Cuff and the Celestial Cuff are great choices. 

How about a great necklace to head into fall?  Some of these statement necklaces like the Plait and the Asher would look great with sweaters.

I love this outfit from J. Jill.  I've worn it every week since I got it last month.  And people ask me about it whenever I wear it.

Is there a more perfect pairing than white jeans and a chambray top?  I think not.  And it was perfect for a casual Friday at work where I had no meetings.

Friday night we went to check on the house and we have trim!  And doors!  And shelves!  I love it more and more every time we go by.

Started Saturday off right with a run on the treadmill.  Followed by Weight Watchers and a few errands.

And then this guy wanted some snuggles.  So we relaxed on the couch for a bit.

I did a little light reading :)

And then this handsome fella took me out to dinner to celebrate the new job.

This dress is such a gorgeous blue color and was perfect for a special night out.  I snagged on super sale from Anthropologie and it does not look to be available online anymore, but I've linked to a similar one.

We dined at Perry's in Uptown and oh it was so so good.  Perfect for special occasions.  I was happy with our location, we were right next to their wine room!  Great ambience, gorgeous decor, and delicious food.  Oh, and our waiter was AMAZING.  Excellent service.

Whew.  What a week!  Here's to hoping this one is a little slower.  Have a great week y'all!
