Photo Diary: From Vegas to Wisconsin

I guess I have been bitten by the travel bug lately, but I've got to say I am not mad about it! If I could, I would hop on a plane this weekend and see some more sights. :) Unfortunately, I am back in WA and today has been the first day I've gotten to sit and relax... took a personal day at work just to play catch up with laundry, cleaning the house and of course updating my blog. I'll be recreating my outfits worn soon!

I have been so blessed to be able to meet the people I meet and to have the people I have in my life. Everyone comes into your life for a reason, either they are blessing or a lesson my dears. These past two weekends has done nothing but reminded me to make the most of life and make time for the ones you care about. Time is just too precious, heck my vacations were over in a blink of an eye!!

First half of this blog is a recap of my Vegas trip -- I took my baby sister to Vegas for the first time after she turned 21, just like my older sister did for me. Not only that, but my best friends were able to join me and help me recreate her 21 run! Thank you ladies, I don't know where I'd be without you all, can't wait for our next girls trip! Cheers to the memories, laughs and stories that no one will know but us, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. :)

Second half is my trip back to Wisconsin. I can honestly say I am going through Wisconsin withdrawals... or maybe it's the people I got to spend my time with, either way I can not wait to go back. I now understand why my boyfriend loves to wonder down memory lane, and this time I'll know exactly which place he's talking about. Boy does he have some awesome friends! Thank you to everyone that took time out of your weekend to welcome Cole home! I am so flattered at all the kinds words from each one of you guys, new faces and old, thank you for making me feel like I have been there and known you all forever! I wish I could have taken more pictures, but some things you've just got to be there to experience for yourself. :)

Let's Play Catchup!

Holy cow! The last time I did an outfit post was about 6 weeks ago... how did time move that fast?? Let's play catch up dolls.

I am now officially settled in with my boyfriend in our adorable loft. I am really happy we made this decision. The only down side to being on the top floor during a Washington summer... is the heat! It has been a consistent 90 degrees in our apartment and we've now accumulated 4 fans, and have been sleeping next to our one window... That changed today when we made the best purchase yet, a portable AC machine! I am one happy girl right now. 

Summer time means cute office outfits! I've had to downsize my closet drastically when we moved in together, I mean who knew sharing a closet would be so hard? But I did find things that I have forgotten about, including this cute striped shirt. :)

Outfit Details|| Striped Blouse: Ross (similar here and here) || Black Skinnies: Target here || Strappy Heels: Urban OG (similar here and here) || Purse: Michael Kors (gift) || Necklace & Earrings: Charlotte Russe

My boyfriend has agreed to help me be more consistent on my posts... next one will be when we are in Wisconsin! :) Gotta love having a boyfriend from out of state. 

Have a wonderful week dolls!
