weekend

Monday, February 21

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket
Shoes: Jessica Simpson, Skirt: c/o YesStyle, Belt: Thrifted, Top: H&M, Sweater: JCrew, Necklace: giveaway win c/o Pig and Pepper
Basically all you need to know right now is that my skirt twirls. 
Twirlssssssss.
And that I just had the most marvelous long weekend. 
Which included, but was not limited to: husband catching our stove on fire. Twice.
One day spent sleeping in till 10. And one spent getting up at 6.
A Sunday nap that was like woah
 A huge laundry and cleaning sesh. Pretty sure I got high on bleach that day.
Dinner with sissy, mom, husband and cousins at the fanciest restaurant in town -- Olive Garden. We really roll out the red carpet for our special guests around here.
Husband making pot roast.
And it being delicious.
Ignorning pretty much all of my homework until right now
Snowmobiling. And proudly catching some sweet air all. by. my. self. .... hmph
Lots and lots of husband kisses at a sweet little shoot with my friend.
Desperately wishing for a weekend repeat. Like maybe 5.
 And then I'll go back to real life.
If people feel like that's completely necessary.

At least there's the bachelor to look forward to tonight! It always helps the weekends come faster when you have little events to enjoy during the week. Cute outfit! There are never enough pics of you and your cute ensembles though! Do more than 3 pretty please!

Kendra said...

I totally agree with the need for a weekend repeat... had reading break last week and I was so not excited to return to real life today! Thank goodness I did some shopping to ease me into my week!

okay I need this skirt in my like asap.

Erica said...

Don't twirly skirts just make you feel so feminine? And real life is overrated. Let's just live in three-day weekends.

Wow your week-end sounds like it was pretty awesome! Oh and I am now officially on the look-out for a skirt that twirls like that....I miss the days when I had a few such pieces to pick from!

Mommyblogger said...

I adore your twirly skirt, actually I adore you whole outfit. Sounds like an awesome weekend. I want to try snowmobiling! We don't get enough snow here in KY. Hope your week is just as fabulous.

Cathy K. said...

This is my one of my favorite outfits that you have posted so far. Actually, it may be my #1 fave!

Rebecca from See You in Sweden said...

Love it, so adorable!! I did not get a long weekend, sigh...but reading your blog is like a little weekend refresher for me :)

Jordan Streetman said...

Reason why we would be friends/why you should follow my blog. lol. 1 because I am moving to DC in May too. well I am either getting a job there or i am moving in with family. 2 because I procrastinate on homework 3 because i could take you on fun date while the hubby is working 4 because I love the hussy and her cute husband and she love me and my maybe one day military husband back. I pretend i am making post roast and I really cant but boyfriend pretends its good and I went to unc-Greensboro but i transfered to go to school at the beach. lol. anyways your fun!!

Jillian said...

youre too cute! i love the yellow cardi with that striped top! xoox jcd

Kayla said...

I love J. Simp shoes. Every time I try on a pair they are the most comfortable things ever. Not sure why I still don't own a pair...

Bekah said...

i love love love the twirl... and the yellow. and the fact that im also still continuing to ignore my homework. and i need about 5 weekend repeats myself.

a!ex said...

I love your skirt! Twirling in one of the best things that a skirt could possibly do. And I've been ignoring my homework too... but it's hard not to when you're on Reading Week! You'd think the name of this break would inspire me to, but no...

Chelsea said...

Can I have that outfit? And that hair-do? Everything about your look is so fantastic!

Justine said...

i love your new twirl skirt! when you learn how to put weekends on repeat without weekdays, please share with me. Bunz and I are in major need of some sleep!

AJD ∞ said...

I am in love with that skirt. & necklace. And anything yellow, which means I love your sweater as well.

I understand Olive Garden being the fanciest restaurant. I attended a small, Christian college in the world's smallest, middle-of-nowhere town. Treating visitors to a good time was a straaain.

Jessica Marie said...

You look like a fabulous 50's housewife in that silhouette!! :)

genevieve, sandbox romance said...

Eeep! Loving the skirt and the bright pop of yellow!

Julie said...

I was imagining a color combo like this in my head but I think it looks way better on you!!
Ps-Is that cardigan really mustard? I have a cardigan from JCrew and depending on the light it looks a little on the greenish side? I think their description was something like golden chartreuse or something!
