Investing in the weekend

Things I learned this weekend:

I’m sad the Olympics are over, even if I did only watch if for a combined 37 minutes.

Country is the best music to listen to when you drive twelve miles in forty-five minutes because of an accident on the freeway.

Sangria gives me a headache. Okay, six or seven glasses of sangria gives me a headache.


*Dress: Thrifted via Freestyle Clothing Exchange. *Vest: Thrifted via Goodwill (altered) *Boots: Target

I like sangria.

When I have a vest on, I like to take it off.


I have a weakness for babies. That’s not something new, just reaffirmed.

107 degrees is really hot.


I am jealous of Miley Cyrus and her new haircut.

I couldn’t decide if I wanted my vest open with my hair down, or buttoned with my hair up. So I switched halfway through the day.


I love the look of cut offs and sweaters, no matter how much of an oxymoron it is.


I am not ashamed to admit that I like Ashton Kutcher movies.

I am well aware of my intense farmer’s tan.

I’m not going to admit that this happened, but pictures are worth a thousand words for a reason.


Congratulations, you made it to the end! Hey, check out this fun video! If you think you’d like to see me just being me, then you might like it.

There was a lot going on in this post. Thanks for sticking with me!

    I am also sad about the Olympics being over, even though I only watched for about 10 minutes. 😛


  4. i love this outfit so much i think i should go ahead and just thrift a denim jacket i don’t mind cutting the sleeves off of. sometimes it takes a push or forty to get me to do something. also, you look like a completely different person with your hair up!

    i love your messy bun and i love sangria. at a favorite local tapas bar, i tried white wine sangria recently and i have to say that i love it even more than the regular red wine sangria. it’s the only way i can enjoy wine without getting a headache. stay cool!

    Got farmer’s tan too, I think it’s totally original, as far as no one else has it, we’re fine XD Sad about the Olympics too, although I usually turned them on the telly, only to go somewhere else and do some stuff with the Olympics noise in the background 😀

  24. Love how you paired the denim vest with a dress:)

    Thanks so much for visiting my blog, yours is fabulous, now following you!
