Tuesday Brian and I hung out all day by my pool for the first time all summer. (I know it's almost August...) Since we are both really really fair skinned, even though we were both wearing sunblock- we burnt really bad. I had work that night and it was the most miserable thing ever. With every movement I felt my bra straps ripping and burning my skin.
Wednesday morning I had work again. Basically went home to sleep then came right back. Not only was I still very painfully burnt, I had an awful day at work. I have been there for 3 years and I still get yelled at and reprimanded for every little thing. I know it's not just me and it happens to everyone there, but for some reason Wednesday it really got to me and when Brian came to pick me up I just started bawling my eyes out. When I got home I had a cat scarf and my bag from ShopDixi.com I had been waiting a month for waiting by my garage. That cheered me up a tiny bit. Brian and I then watched Pretty Little Liars and I had some ice cream on a warm cookie. Eventually by the end of the night I was feeling much much better thanks to Brian's utter baby-ing of me. (He's sooo sweet to me when I'm feeling upset, not that he isn't normally so sweet!) Thursday Brian played guitar with his friend, and I didn't see him until 7 and then I worked on my quilt the rest of the night.
But today was our day to spend together, antiquing and going to a cafe!

I had so much fun today with Brian! We went to a cafe called The Gristmill and had frozen chocolate chais with our meals. I had a grilled chicken panini with cheddar jack cheese and lime dressing on whole wheat. (It was amazing!) We then walked to a few antique stores close by and I found an owl necklace, really nice iron bird trivet, and an amazing old birdcage music box. (You have to see it to know what I mean!) We also scored an awesome deal at Marshalls and got a $25 beautiful bowl set for my cat for only $12.99 because of an error with their price tags. Yes!!
I think I nearly died when I saw this scarf on Modcloth. The first thing I thought is "No way did they mix classy floral with whimsical black cats." But oh they did. Brian being the sweetheart he is ordered me this right away!
Yay for sunburn and peeling noses!
So the Alexa bag that has been topping everyones wishlist was also topping mine, though there is NO WAY I would ever ever be able to afford one. I have been trying so hard (you have no idea!) to find something similar for much cheaper elsewhere, and when I found this bag on Shopdixi.com for only $50 I ordered it straight away. Even my mom says how similar they look!
Lastly these oxfords are ones I have been wanting for over a year. My mom decided to order them for me since she was so proud of me getting on the Deans List in college. Yay for being studious!! Though they are so fall-eqsue (as is my whole outfit), I couldn't wait to wear them. I think everyone will understand when I say I am dying to wear fall attire already!
