Summer 2016

I've been seriously slacking on my blog this summer, but that doesn't mean that I haven't been having a blast! Here's a few pictures that haven't made it into any blog posts lately:

Lake of the Ozarks:: First Annual Couples Weekend

Michael and I headed to the Lake of the Ozarks this past weekend with some of our couple friends and we had the absolute best time. Everyone was able to take off work on Friday so we headed down Thursday night to enjoy a three day weekend. Here's a little recap of our trip:

We all packed up after work and headed to the lake. We were all starving once we arrived, so we stopped at Lil Rizzo's for some beer and pizza before heading to the condo. Once we got settled in to our rooms, we all went out to the balcony for a couple more beers and a few rounds of Heads Up. If you haven't played this game with your friends, I highly recommend it. It is so much fun and even the boys loved it!

The boys woke up early to get a few rounds of golf in, so us girls decided to sleep in a bit before grabbing breakfast at Blueberries Bistro. After breakfast, we decided it was time to go lounge by the pool for a few hours. We grilled hamburgers and hot dogs for dinner and then went to play a round of mini golf and ride go karts. Talk about a perfect day!

Once again, the boys decided to play golf so the girls went to breakfast. We decided that the boys hobby was golfing and ours was breakfasting. Around noon we all decided to go back down to the pool to soak up some more sunshine before taking a water taxi to Shady Gators. As soon as we arrived at Shady Gators, we got recruited to go on the Bud Light party cruise.  It was a blast! Who can pass up free beer on a boat?!

Since we had to be checked out of our condo by 10 a.m. we all packed up early and traveled home.

Overall, our trip was absolutely perfect and we decided that it needed to be our first annual couples weekend. I can't wait to do it again next year!

Stitch Fix:: V.5

It's been a couple months since my last Stitch Fix arrived, and I've been so busy that I haven't had time to show you guys what I received. Better late than never, right?!

For those of you who don't know what Stitch Fix is, it's a personal styling service that shops for you and sends 5 items of clothing or accessories to your door, either monthly or on a date of your choosing. You can read a full review of my first two Stitch Fix deliveries here.

Here we go....

  • When I first saw this off-the-shoulder top in the box, I wasn't a fan. After trying it on with some white skinnies and heels, I loved it! The floral print is so unique, and lately I've been a big fan of anything off-the-shoulder. I wracked my brain on when I would be able to wear it, and just couldn't come up with enough opportunities in the near future to rock it, so I decided to return it.  Still regretting that decision.

  • Hello, chambray tops! These are definitely in this season, and I fell in love with this polka dot tank as soon as I saw it in the box. After trying it on, I knew there was no way I could return it. It was definitely a keeper.

  • These shorts, on the other hand, did nothing for me. I could tell that they were going to be WAY too big, and sure enough they were. They were quite unflattering and also pretty see-through. It was an easy decision to send them back.

  • This statement necklace was the only piece of jewelry in my fix and I just didn't love it. I think I need to tell my stylist to hold off on sending me jewelry since I have yet to love any of the pieces that I have received.

  • While I didn't really love or hate this top, I had my mind made up before I even tried it on that I would be returning it. It just looks too much like so many other tops that I own, so I definitely didn't feel a need to keep it. Plus, it was incredibly wrinkly and I'm just not the ironing type of gal.

Overall, this wasn't my favorite fix, but I do love the chambray top that I decided to keep. Can't wait to see what comes in my next delivery!
