Well as you can probably tell the sun is gone! We needed the rain so it’s a good thing I guess. I just got these open toe booties and I love them! I have been wanting a pair for a long time! I’m so glad I found these Steve Madden ones at Nordstrom Rack! I am really surprised with how comfortable they are! They will be perfect for spring and will go with so many casual chic looks!

John and I are having our engagement pictures done this Sunday and besides being indecisive on where I want to take them (an abandoned house would be an ideal location) I have been back and forth on what I’m going to wear! If I wear heels in the grass I don’t want to sink into the ground, I don’t know if I should wear a dress, or just be more casual, so many decisions! It’s supposed to be 90 degrees that day! I just hope we aren’t a sweaty mess, that wouldn’t be pretty. If anyone has any ideas that would be great!

It was my best friends bridal shower yesterday and I wore this beautiful Got a date mint lace dress from Chicwish! It was a gorgeous shower and so much fun! I bought this dress awhile ago and have been saving it knowing it would be perfect for her day. I love mint and I love lace so when I saw this dress I HAD to have it! I’m so glad I did because its so wonderful! I love the way it fits and the straps are wide enough to cover your bra straps, which I was a little worried about. The lace around the hem and waist is so detailed and such a beautiful design. The gauzy cotton fabric is really great because it made the skirt so much fuller and was still soft and comfortable! At the shower I did wear flat sandals. It was in the grass and I didn’t feel like digging my heels out of the dirt every time I took a step! I liked it with sandals but not as much as I do with these nude heels!

Can you guys tell I love Nike workout gear?!? First of all Phil Knight (the co-founder of Nike) is a native of Oregon and a University of Oregon graduate (Go Ducks!), so Eugene is full of Nike everything! There are a ton of other companies that are great for workout clothes, but the quality of Nike clothes is always something that sucks me in!

I just recently started doing CrossFit and I am absolutely addicted!  I have pushed myself at the gym, done all the videos, followed YouTube workouts, but I have never pushed my body like I have with CrossFit. I feel like I have found something that finally makes perfect sense! I want to tell everyone I know all about it. Every time I leave class I feel accomplished.   I leave feeling like I just proved to myself I could do what I didn’t think my body was capable of. Every “W.O.D” (workout of the day, I hate saying W.O.D) is different so your body is always surprised.

I want to be healthy and strong.  Being naturally thin doesn’t mean I don’t work hard to be healthy and fit. Yes, it might be easier for me to maintain my weight, but I still make the choice everyday to work hard at staying healthy and in shape. I was super nervous at first and worried I wouldn’t belong, but the people at CrossFit 448 were very welcoming.  You get a week free at Crossfit 448 to see if you like it.  They answer all of your questions and walk you through all the workouts you do not know how to do.  Everyone is very friendly!

If you are thinking of trying and live near Junction City, Oregon please give them a try.  You will not be disappointed!  I hope everyone is having a great Holiday Weekend!  Let me know if you have any questions in the comments section!

This just might be my new favorite outfit! I’ve always loved gingham. Growing up I had multiple sets of Ralph Lauren gingham sheets and they were wonderful! I love navy gingham with white pants, especially paired with cognac accessories.

I feel like I accomplished so much this weekend! Saturday I went to several yard sales and got some great stuff! That evening John took me on a date night to sushi! We tried a different place this time and it was so good. Then we went to frozen yogurt which has been my weakness lately! I want it all the time! Sunday we spent all day cleaning and painting. I painted a couple of lamps that I bought on Saturday and John worked on getting our bedroom painting done. We have been trying to get it finished for a couple of months now, we have just been so busy!

What did you guys do this weekend?!
