Life Lately - Taking Care of the Details

Today is a big day - I start my job at the University of Texas at Arlington.  And we are less than 4 weeks away from the wedding, and approximately 8 weeks away from moving.  Yikes!  So much going on - and the weekends just fly by.  

Here's a peek at what we've been up to lately!

Let's just jump right into it and own up to the fact that this last week was fueled by caffeine.  My favorite lately has been vanilla cold brew with 2 pumps of pumpkin.  I get the taste of the Pumpkin Spice Latte with about half the calories.

Lots of barre this week!  I even doubled up on Wednesday.

I took Empower twice on Wednesday and it totally kicked my butt.  But man, it felt good!  Unsolicited advice - if you are trying to be consistent about your activity, find something you love and it will be easy.  Whether it be for weight loss or overall good health, if you love it, it will not feel like a chore.

 I had a lot of "last" meetings this week and was in and out of the office, so I had to dress up a bit.  No jeans this last week.  But lots of dresses, like this gorgeous ponte knit checked dress from J. Jill.  So comfy, it looks professional and is so easy to wear.  All their dresses this season are aces, but I just fell in love with this one and can't wait to pair it with boots once the weather cools down.

This guy was in a snuggly mood on this particular morning. Oh, and those spots on his chin?  Acne.  Yup.  My senior kitty has acne.  #goodgrief

Loft is having a killer sale right now - so go snag this top for yourself while you can get it for half off!  The sale ends Tuesday, so get to it! 

I was going into the office, so I threw this cute ponte knit jacket on over it.  The knit keeps it office appropriate without being stuffy. 

My sweet Uncle Norman sent me a card in the mail for the wedding.  He is the first person to send me something with my new name!  Technically I won't be Mrs. Fisher until the end of the month, but I love that he sent it.  Uncle Norman is the best.  Technically, he's my great-uncle as he is the brother of my grandfather. And he is a great uncle.  

Friday night, I rewarded myself with a barre intensive class.  75 minutes with a focus on seat work.  I push hard every single class - barre class is my happy place.

How adorable is this dress?  And it's 50% off at Loft, so it is under $30!  For real, get one.  It is so soft and pretty, and it hardly wrinkles.  I was nervous wearing it that I would drive to Weight Watchers on Saturday and get out of the car and be a wrinkled mess.  Nope, not a problem at all.

This is the face of a happy girl who was down 1.6 pounds this week!  Woohoo!  The plan is to keep doing what I'm doing because I have had two great weeks in a row.  And I am narrowing in on goal.  

These Rebacca Minkoff x Stella & Dot earrings are giving me life right now.  I LOVE them.  Simple but with a but of an edge, I love how they paired with a really simple outfit today. 

Sunday we were off to Phillip's parents' house for dinner so I wanted to be casual but season appropriate, even though it was going to be in the 80s.  Sigh.  #whenwillthefallweathergethere

It was the perfect opportunity to pull out my J. Crew Saturday pants.  I LOVE these.  So comfy and perfect for a Sunday where we were going to be casual and hanging out, but I still wanted to look cute.

We got to work after lunch and put together the favors for the wedding. I can't believe we're less than a month away!!!

Hope this week treats you well!
