This coat (the color is amazing!)This dress...perfect for work or dinner out!
I would also take a gift card to J.Crew so I could pick everything out on my own as well - ha! I love my birthday! (yes, I'm almost 28 years old and still obsessed with my birthday!)
So I just looked at my October schedule and the month isn't shaping up to be too bad! I actually have two FULL weekends OFF! OMG - that hasn't happened in...forever! J is turning the BIG 3-0 on Halloween, so I have that entire weekend off and we are having our first big party at our house! I'm so excited! I'll have to do a post on party plans soon - I just put the invites to the party in the mail today...yes, I'm a nerd and sent out real paper invites, I was just TOO excited!
We have some major house plans on the horizon for this month too ---- soooo happy about that. We bought a new dishwasher this past weekend and J is installing it tonight! We are slowly working on replacing all our kitchen appliances. The stove and dishwasher are done...now just the fridge and a new over-the-stove microwave! We're taking our time with it and budgeting everything...slow process but we will finish! We're planning a full kitchen upgrade (cabinets, counters, etc.) for early next year...I've started collecting ideas already!
J has also FINALLY agreed to let me spend some of our wedding money. We put it ALL in savings, but it's literally burning a whole in my pocket! We're not going to spend all of it, but we are going to replace both sliding doors (living room and basement), as well as put in a new glass storm door in at our front door. We are also planning on installing a shelving unit in our basement, to create sort of a shelving/bar type of set up. J is dying for a "man-cave" type of space down there with a small bar area and I'm allowing it, with some provisions. We found this as C&B and I think it's a great compromise on a "bar" but still really nice looking and organized:
They actually carry this at our C&B store, so we're going to go look at it this weekend and hopefully spend our wedding C&B gift cards to put towards it! Love!
Sorry this is such a boring and random post! Yay October!
