After a quiet week at home, Mike and I are headed up to the Cape for Nicole’s wedding. I cannot believe this weekend is here!!! It will be so fun to celebrate their nuptials.

Party Dress

I am obsessed with this dress. Obsessed. I thought it was “cute” online and I threw it in my cart to try on at home. It was expensive enough to give me pause, but I thought it could be an interesting new style to try. (Especially as I’m re-working my wardrobe!) I’m so, so, so…

Diary No. 13

This has been a fun two weeks of travel and visitors! Some iPhone snaps: Mike’s family’s boathouse is dreamy. We spent most of the (extra long) weekend up there playing ping pong, reading, and looking out at the water. I have to say… why on earth is ping pong so fun?! Could have played for hours!…
