Shirt & Glasses-Old Navy, Skirt & Necklace-F21, Belt-Joe Fresh, Shoes-Target

I used to hate aviator glasses on myself.
Then, last October, we were in Hawaii and I had to pee really bad.
So I went to the skeezy public bathroom on the beach and in my attempt at hurrying out of the nasty bathroom, I flushed my sunglasses down the toilet {Yup. Really happened.}.
Luckily Travis had a spare pair of glasses, that were aviators.
He loved them on me and looking back at the pictures, I actually did to.
Alas. I own my own pair now.
Who knew flushing something down the toilet, and lets be honest, probably breaking it, could have such a wonderful outcome.

I love Fridays.

 Shirt-Gap, Jeans-Target, Belt & Shoes-Old Navy

That title is a lie.
I love Saturdays.
I only use Fridays to get to Saturdays. Don't tell Friday though.

My lovely Mr. Travis is coming home tonight after being gone since Tuesday and I could not be more delighted!! And the best part...we have no plans for the whole weekend. It is going to be quite pleasant. We can do whatever we want. My choice...sleep till noon and then go for a pretty and easy hike and then stare at our baby chicks the rest of the day. {they are soo funny to watch}

They have grown so much. The baby chicks that is. And I am excited for Travis to see them.
And yes, I know they are not our children and he probbably won't care as much as me.
A girl can dream right?

The Funky Collar

Shirt-Thrifted, Pants & Shoes-Target, Belt-Old Navy

I got this shirt from Value Village the other day.
The polka dots are what caught my eye but the collar is what made me buy it.
Best part? It was $2.50.
Woah right?

The Mr. is out of town again and I am starting to feel bad for calling up my friends to beg them to take my picture. So yesterday I bought a tripod and remote.
I'm pretty sure our neighbors think I'm a crazy lady. I was out there for like a 45 minutes trying to figure it out and make it work.
New adventure. Here I come.

Happy Monday!
I had the best weekend!
It was full of sunshine and friends and baby chicks!!
Yup. We got ourselves some baby chicks.
I have been begging Travis since we got married and after 5 years, he caved.
They slept in our laundry room in a box last night. 
But they chirped all night, which was cute at first, but then I got really tired.

I'll have pics tomorrow!!

Oh and by the way, I'm obsessed with this necklace!

Mouse Trap

Dress-Old Navy, Blazer-Thrifted, Belt & Shoes- H&M

Let me tell you the story of our mouse.
About a week ago, I had really bad allergies and I was laying in bed awake and all of the sudden heard the scurrying of a mouse! Now we just built this house about a year ago so in my mind there should be no mice right?
Well our mouse didn't care about my logic, cause he was in our house nonetheless.
So I listened to him for forever under our sink in our master bath. And I was so annoyed with this naughty little mouse. Invading our  house!
I told Travis about it the next day and instead of sharing my outrage he happily said "We have a mouse?" {insert big smile} After that whenever I would tell him to get a trap he would say "But it's our mouse!"

Anyway, fast track to Tuesday night, we're in Target and I remember we need to get a mouse trap. 
We had decided to just get one that would catch the little guy but not kill him and then we could let him loose at Travis's parents barn.
So we stood in front of the traps for what must have been 20 minutes deciding which one to get cause they didn't have the trap ones only the kill ones. 
We finally decided to just get the good old fashion mouse trap and that way it would be done. Our mouse would feel no pain and it would be gone. Maybe it will just catch his tail and we can still let him loose, was Travis's reasoning to make me feel better about it. {By this point we had somehow switched and I liked the mouse and he was like whatever}
So we set the trap that night. Put some cheese on it and went to bed. {My biggest fear was that I would hear it snap in the middle of the night!}
I came home from work yesterday and asked Travis if he had checked it. He said he had and that it was empty. Then I went off to a church meeting. Came home, asked him again. Still nothing.
Then this morning.
We're laying in bed and Travis says he has something to tell me.
Last night he checked it and the cheese was gone but there was no mouse. 
That's our mouse! I thought.Sneaky little guy!
So, Travis continues, he got a bigger piece of cheese and reset it. 
Then, while I was gone, he was listening to the Mariners game on the radio in our bed and SNAP! 
We killed our mouse.
We both sat there in silence for a bit. Kinda feeling bad. Kinda feeling satisfied.
Travis assured me he was not a little cute mouse like I had pictured. He was a big nasty fellow.
So I don't feel as bad. 
Now we don't have a mouse anymore.

Has anyone else ever felt bad about killing a mouse?
Or am I just crazy?
You can be honest. It wouldn't be the first crazy thing I've done.

 Shirt-Thrifted, Pants & Shoes-Old Navy

Sorry this bad boy is up so late today!
I was having issues with blogger last night and so I thought I'd do it this morning...and then I decided to sleep in a little instead.
I'm selfish like that.
 Spring has finally sprung here!
Although, right before these pictures it was like pouring rain....but that's spring here in the NW.
I wanted to run and roll around in this meadow right after these pics.
But someone beat me to the punch.

Over the Weekend.

Tunic-H&M, Blazer-Boutique in Victoria, Leggings-Old Navy, Boots-Aldo

Sorry these pics are little weird. Our camera died right after this next one and we were on our way out so there was no time for waiting!

We had a really good, fun, busy weekend!
This outfit was to go out to celebrate out good friends 2 year wedding anniversary!
Camera was dead so I have no pics to show for it.

Then Saturday we went out with some other good friends AJ and Adalie {check her out. She's amazing!}
We got pizza and went down to the beach and watched the sunset.
And then we went to a comedy show at a club that Ryan Stiles owns and he ended up being there!! 
It was hilarious!! Just what I needed for a Saturday night!!

 The boys found these little craps and were so excited about them! They were kinda cute.

Speaking of cute, aren't these 2 adorable?
We had so much fun with you guys!!

What did you guys do this weekend?

I apologize for being MIA the last couple days. And I don't been the singer/rapper {what do you call her??}
Travis has been home every night and I have been soaking up all the time I can with him. And we both have colds and may have been going to bed at like 9:00 every night. Yup. Old people.

Exciting new though!
I am thinking we might have a giveaway sometime next week. So stay tuned for that!

Now I'm off to catch up on all your guys blogs!! I feel so out of the loop!
Have a stellar weekend.
Hopefully regular blogging will return next week. {If I can pry myself away from my adorable husband!}
