Things that make me happy
- Grace is much better. Her fevers are gone! She's happy again and laughing again, back to her normal self within a week of her surgery. Unbelievable! Praise God!
- Fall colors- especially in Minnesota. Absolutely beautiful.
- Crisp weather
- Spending time with family! Dad and Grandma are back from China. The whole family is together again!
- Clothes from Shopruche.com :)
- Blogging as stress relief. Haha
Today Aaron and I took a stroll around Silver lake. The weather was a bit on the colder side, but I couldn't help it. We've been cooped up in the hospital all week, I just had to get out and enjoy what's left of Autumn before it gets real cold in Minnesota. We nicknamed this lake "Goose crap lake" because last year we went paddle-boating on the lake and realized very quickly that there is nothing silver about this lake. It's literally filled to the top with goose crap. This area is infested with Canadian geese. They're everywhere! Apparently they're endangered, and are very precious to this local area, therefore we can't shoot them... as much as I'd like to.
Ever since our move to Minnesota, I had been doing a lot of online shopping. Mostly because there's really nowhere to shop here. One of my favorite online shops is Ruche.com. They have the cutest, vintage inspired clothes for a very affordable price. I try to look for things that are versatile and work appropriate. This white, peplum lace shirt was a great addition to both my casual and work wear collection. I really wish they had a boutique nearby!!
I know it's kind of hard to see, but the belt came with the orange tweed skirt. It comes with these cute, gold detailed hardware consisting of a lock and key. Super cute
I am in LOVE with the above bag. It's the Prada saffiano lux tote, and it's absolutely gorgeous. Aaron got it for me last year...he spoils me so much! (I think he got it for me because he secretly wants to carry the bag). I carry it with me mostly to work, but it also goes well with any type of casual wear. I can fit a TON of things in there, including my books, notes, laptop, etc and never loses its shape because of the durable leather, and it's so well crafted. Plus, it's so durable and heavy that it can also serve as a pretty dangerous weapon if you need to use it to take a swipe at someone for whatever self defense reason!
