and finally, my sincere apologies for looking like a mime today.
i really do. it’s okay.
i don’t know what it is about this outfit…but i’m just feeling mime-ish.
it was just too darn cold outside, and i was just not going out there to take pictures.

geometric clutch

there comes a moment in every woman’s life, when that pesky alarm clock goes off.
a decision needs to be made.
does she snooze it? why, of course she does.

well, folks.
thats exactly what happened to me this morning.
so do you know what that means?

top knot and skinny jeans.

i’d also like to mention that it was 38 degrees outside this morning.
every other picture was chattering teeth and curse words.
sorry, its true.

but, hey! on a positive note!
be sure to check back tomorrow for the riffraff giveaway! so excited about all of the responses and so looking forward to announcing the winner!
giving away fun jewelry makes for a fun little hump day.

how amazing is this geometric clutch c/o of brianne faye? she is a detroit based designer, and i swoonded over all of her incredible pieces. she is quoted as designing “wearable art”…and i totally agree. i just love her pieces!

a hill country getaway

chad received a phone call friday afternoon for a last minute audition in austin.
so instead of being bummed about our weekend plans being ruined, we packed up our bags and made a mini road trip out of it.
{remind me, when i talk about babies, that mini road trips will be a thing of the past.}please. and thank you.

so we spent saturday afternoon in the heart of austin.
we strolled through soco holding hands, laughing, and popping in and out of thrift stores and antique shops. we enjoyed some quality people watching. which, in austin, is quite entertaining. we grabbed lunch at one of the food trucks, and ate our goodies to the sounds of wild, shirtless {and surely unbathed} men singing from atop their cars.
{swoon city. seriously, why is austin so cool and dallas so lame?!}

oh, austin. you quirky thing you. you have stolen my heart, yet again.

one of the greatest parts about the hill country?
chads parents live there.
we left the city and drove out to the ranch where we enjoyed a long walk.
{i love exploring there. where else do you have beauitful oak trees and cacti in the same spot? deep in the heart of hill country. thats where}
afterwards, the men sat down to enjoy a cigar.
followed by dinner. conversation. and a good nights sleep.
and then it was back to dallas. back to the real world.

until next time, austin.


and just a little fun fact.
after chad and i met, we went on a week long first date!
{i know. sounds crazy. but he lived in LA and we had to get creative}
so on that “first date”, we sat on this red tree swing at his parents house, and he told me that while he enjoyed my company, he just couldn’t imagine dating someone who lived so far away.

{thats the sound of my heart breaking}

i put on a “oh yeah. totally” face. and agreed. sadly, but understandingly.
but by the end of that week long date, as we sat on the lakehouse dock staring at the stars, he asked me to be his girlfriend.

and that cabin down below? that cabin is about 100 yards from that little red tree swing. and just so happens to be the place that he proposed to me less than 8 months later.

i just love that story. and also reminding him of how quickly he ate those words he said to me on that little red swing. and how quickly we fell in love.

{great memories were made there}
