This morning I am deliriously off to hopefully complete the end of a long journey. If you are reading this, please send good vibes and thoughts to me. I desperately need it. It's Friday, thank goodness, and I am ready to move on from this and hopefully after morning it will all be over. Is that cryptic enough for you? I promise I will share more later. In the meantime, let's begin.


This man. First and foremost amidst all this craziness lately I can always count on him. When I really need it I can lean on him to help pick up the slack around the house, help with the dogs, do the grocery shopping and believe in me. I could not have done this without him.

Well, I could have but it would have been way harder.

This says it all


This week the Minnesota State Fair starts. I cannot express how much I love the fair. Seemingly I should hate it, right? Huge crowds, expensive foods, farm animals, machinery, etc. I should hate it, but I don't. I can't help myself. I go every year and always get mini donuts, French fries and a crepes. I am not super experimental with the foods but every once in a while I will try something new. This picture is from the new West End area and I am obsessed!! Can't wait to go back there. They also always have a good selection of free music being played at various stages and it's fun to watch your favorite radio DJs and news anchors do their shows live. My plan is to go today as it is realistically the only day I can make it. Also, I will have all weekend to work off the calories I consumed.

This was my last full week at my current job. Next week I begin the transition to  my new position within the same company.  I will still be helping out a couple of days a week but the day to day grind is gone. It's bittersweet because part of me learned so much working there, but the other ravenous part of me wants out so much there is a small voice that comes out of my mouth saying "get out!" I am both excited and nervous for the new position. It is more responsibility and more independence, which is great and scary at the same time. I have to meet all  new people, which is always hard for me, and I am walking into a bunch of new work. Wish me luck!


This look was born out of the transitional style I am engaging in now. This time of year begins where the mornings are chilly and cool, but the afternoons are warm and inviting. How do you dress for that? Sometimes that means layers and sometimes that means having one foot in each season. I present to you the later. I saw this shirt at BR online as part of the first wave of Fall styles and thought "mine." How casual and comfy does this look? It's just as great on as you would think. I sometimes pair it with a bralette I bought at Victoria's Secret just so that I don't have to worry about overexposure during the day, but that still keeps it light and airy. For this time of year I thought shorts would be best. The top is long but so are these shorts and my legs don't get near as cold as the top half of my body. I can see myself wearing this to late night fire, or be one of those cool SoCal kids that hang out on beaches at night. Me? Likely to see me wearing this sitting on my couch. What do you want from my life?!  Either way this combines everything I love: cool, easy and stylish. Done and done!
