You know what... shopping on a budget is no fun at all. Since I bought a car, I figured I should reel in my spending just a little bit, but that doesn't mean that I can't get a few cute things every once in a while right? I mean, as long as I bargain shop, it's all good.
The only problem... I'm a terrible bargain shopper. I'm a window shopper at heart, and my taste always leads me to the most expensive items in the store. It's a blessing and a curse. I did, however, find a few winners today when I discovered this gorgeous Windsor Store handbag and Charlotte Russe vintage-inspired round sunnies. I think they go quite nicely together :)
Wish me luck as the Fall season nears that I can find cute things & still penny pinch. I have my doubts.
Do you ever feel like you're on the verge of a breakdown, and if one more wrench gets thrown into the mix that you're just going to blow? Well, welcome to my life, lately. It is right now that I feel like I finally have a second to sit down and think. I have had SO much going on lately, that I feel like I haven't had one single second of free time to just do whatever it is that I feel like doing and it's been driving me bonkers. So, I'm gathering my thoughts about my life lately and sharing them with you :)
I recently attended my fiancé's cousin's bridal shower :) It was so much fun, and makes me so excited for my own! I'm getting married in May, and counting down the days already :) Above is what I wore to the shower- an adorable peplum style top from H&M and (not pictured) a white eyelet skirt from Forever21.
Adam and I (emphasis on the "I") have slowly but surely been checking items off of the wedding 'to-do' list. Most recent achievement: finding his wedding band. It's tungsten carbide and we got it at Rogers and Hollands. I adore it.
Towards the end of July, one of my little nephews turned five! My sister and mom made these amazing Batman cupcakes to go along with his superhero themed party at Chuck-E-Cheese. AKA Germ City. It was a blast, but I really wish he would quit growing up, already.
The Wisconsin State fair was last weekend- beer & fried food included. There's nothing there that you cannot find dipped in grease and stuck on a stick. It's a little gross, but fun to try different things. We also rode about 7,609 rides, leaving 2 out of 3 nephews hurling. Poor little guys.
And last but not least, I GOT A NEW CAR (!!!) This is way more exciting for me than for most people because you don't understand the vehicle I was driving. My ride was a 2000 Pontiac Sunfire that I'd had since I was 15 years old. I am now almost 24. That car was the first and only car I'd ever had, and it did me good. But a few weeks ago it took a turn for the worst and left me without a vehicle + scrambling to find a new one. Being pretty young, I've never bought a vehicle on my own so I was stressed beyond measure. However, everything turned out okay and I'm now driving this gorgeous lady :) She's a 2011 Kia Sorento. Both the inside and outside look brand new. So perfect.
Phew! That's all I got, which is already way too much. Hopefully in the next few days I can finally take that much needed breath.
