Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a good weekend. I had a busy weekend with some highs and lows. I am writing this late on a Sunday because of the busyness so I will keep this short and sweet.

Friday had some highs and lows. I will start with the highs as I prefer not to start in a low place. Friday night I met up with one of my best friends for dinner. I really cherish my time with friends these days. All our lives are so busy and we don't get to see each other as often as we once did. Also knowing that in the next few months life is going to change dramatically I want to soak in as much time as possible. Anyway, (side note I just watched The Walking Dead premiere so I am feeling all the feels) we went to dinner at local haunt The Tiny Diner in Minneapolis. I heard lots of good things so figured it would be worth a try. It definitely is tiny, but a hipster deconstructed dining experiencing. I had the Hilary burger (there were political themes) and was pleased with my choice. They do have a spacious patio so I may need to go back there in the summer to enjoy it.  Afterwards we went back to my house and catch up a bit. 

The low of Friday is we put down my family dog of 14 years, Jordi. We got him when I was in high school not too long after we put down our other family dog. Before Riggs and Eva there was Jordi. He was a dog with a lot of personality and spunk. Running through the house with little care for others and things. He got excited about Cheezits, walks and being pet. If you weren't petting him, that didn't last long as he forced it on you. Until his last day he had a the sweet face of a puppy. With the addition of my niece they formed a bond. She took care of him by giving him lots of treats, hugs and tucking him in with a blanket and dolls. In the last couple of years he was having problems with arthritis and his hearing. In the last few months he began experiencing more and more symptoms. After much thought and consultation we decided it was time. I got to say goodbye to him and it was really hard. Our family is grieving still and deciding where to go from here. We will miss our sweet weirdo, there none like you.

Did I make you sad yet? Let's switch gears. Saturday was a busy day too. I hit the gym in the morning then decided to tackle putting the nursery dresser together. D has done a lot of work around the house lately so figured it was the least I could do. It took about 3 hours to do, which was my entire afternoon. These stupid things come in a billion pieces! But I got it done and I am dang proud of myself. Afterwards I went over to my parents for dinner and to spend some family time.

Sunday we went bridesmaids dress shopping for my younger sister. She had a pretty clear idea of what she wanted so that definitely helped. After much debate and prancing around in various dresses we settled on one that I am pretty excited about. Mission accomplished. That night we watched The Walking Dead premiere and if you are a fan of the show you know it was a rough night. If not, I won't say anything but you should definitely be watching this show. It's so good!

Ok fashion time: It is getting chilly around here. Time to break out the jackets and vests. Last year I snagged this BB Dakota Jack grey vest for a steal! It goes with so many items in my wardrobe but this is my favorite way to wear it.  I love this trapeze dress from Express. It is so comfortable and figure flattering. Form fitting in the chest and upper torso but then flares out around your waist. The cotton is soft and I really am obsessed with this color. I don't wear a lot of purple so it really has to catch my eye. I like to elongate my silhouette with a pendant and my favorite Target booties. Enter: Fall staples :)
