First Impressions

"You could just fall in love with her."

An unforgettable quote from the weekend.

Mixed Patterns

Wow, I really started September off with a bang! I spent way too much money on additions to my fall wardrobe. Three of these pieces were recent purchases.
I was terribly afraid, and still am a bit, about the disappearance of summer. Soo to combat the fear I decided spending money on exciting things was my only cure.
September has been great.
And I'm loving my outfit options, but I still need more- I mean after all I'm still fearful. :)

I was a little unsure about these two patterns. Both are polka dots, and of course the Brahmin purse and blue Senso booties... Totally clash. But I love the colors!

What do you think?
Blouse- H&M
Skirt- Gap Outlet
Misc bracelets, watch- OU

Labor Day Weekend

With all the talk about Isaac (tropical storm) making its appearance in the Midwest this weekend, I was fearful the long weekend would be scrapped. But it wasn't at all! :)
Friday was a windy, rainy, gloomy day. The perfect kind of day to spend on the couch, online shopping or knitting. :)
I did neither.
Instead I worked until 6pm, came home and watched The Hunger Games with my neighbor.
Saturday I spent way too much money shopping with my friend Tracy, and then had a lovely dinner at Herbie's Vintage 72, followed by the last performance of The Lion King at the Fox Theater. It was spectacular!
Sunday I spent the day at home getting crafty, ran 2.4 miles with my dad and then had a lovely dinner with my folks.
Monday was spent harvesting grapes for Vogler Wine! And I cannot even begin to describe how excited I am about it! We have TONS of grapes ready to be squeezed into something yummy.

I pray you all lovely friends and followers had just as great a weekend as I!

This should make about 13 gallons of wine! And this was only grapes from 3 of the 6 plants!
