So what if I like pretty things?

Hello guys! Whoa, it's March!

Today is not the best day in the world for me. Gabe got picked for Jury Duty so we can't go on our anni trip next week. BUT, I'm trying to play the glad game as a wise little girl named Pollyanna Whittier taught me to do. I still have the love of the best guy in the world and my baby Birdie. PLUS, we can still go for a short weekend trip. So, it's just taken me a few hours to get over this.

This is what I wore yesterday when we were fully enjoying our day off. It was a pretty nice sunny day. We didn't do anything particularly special but coffee, food, and shopping is always special in my book.






(Dress- Vintage, Trench- Lara, Socks- UO, Purse- Miss Albright)

And here are some pretty things. Just some of my fave jewelry and nail polishes. :)

Other than that, I am obsessed with "Crazy Heart" one year too late. There's a reason I don't like to watch good movies..I can't shake them!!

Well, Gabe gets done with his Jury Duty at 5 and we're going to Chipotle to get the BOGO deal. :) We used to go to Chipotle all the time when we had no money so it's fine nostalgic fun! Two thumbs up.

How's your day going? Did you have any fun treats...receive any good news...fall in love?? :) You never fail to make me smile with your sweet comments.

LOVE!

Congrats guys! Can't wait to see you wear the jewelry. :)

  14. I think I love you more every time you make an entry. I love the glad game but I'm a big Haley Mills and Pollyanna fan. My husband got chosen for jury duty this week and hopefully can get out of it since he's needed at his job and it could be an issue if he misses a day.

    Your outfit is spectacular. I tried to use something more than people's usual "amazing, awesome, cool, gorgeous, beautiful, lovely" tag-lines.

    I haven't seen crazy heart but was 2 seconds away from doing so and even had the disk from netflix. Maybe one day I'll actually see it though.

  18. Civic duties are such a bummer sometimes but I hope that you don't give up plans for a fun get away soon!

    reading your cheeriness makes my day every day so thank you for that!
    (and also thanks for reminding me about Chipotle BOGO woo!!)

  19. I'm sorry about Gabe's jury duty. I would be pissed, but I think you're handling this beautifully. You guys will still have a great anni! I have no doubt. Question though, what's a BOGO?

  29. Oh no, this is so sad! I don't know much about Jury Duty, we don't have that here in Germany - but isn't there a way to postpone it? (though I think they do not know any excuse if it comes to that kind of duty, they take it very seriously?!^^) This is so annoying, I wouldn't get over it in just a few hours :(
    Hope you find a way or do some other lovely thing instead!
    Love your outfit :-*
