stripes and a giveaway!

{Vest: Similar | Dress: Similar | Belt: Similar}



Happy Tuesday everyone!  I have mixed feelings about today as I have a little bit of bad news (for myself) and a little bit of good news (for me and you). The bad news (and the reason I was so bummed last week) is that I have a stress fracture in my leg.  Boo!  I got the fracture training for the marathon, which I'm not gonna be able to do.  Boo again!  It was something on my bucket list and I was really in a good place with it. So now I'm kinda really bummed. I also have to wear a boot (not cute or stylish) and limit my activities (how am I supposed to do that with a toddler running around).  So the next few weeks are gonna be a little difficult.

But the good news (there's always a silver lining) is that I have 100 followers!  Ya'll I have waited every day to have 100 followers and now I do.  I feel like I'm big time :).  I want to thank each and every one of you...those that read every day, those that pop in now and then, and those who are first-time visitors.  I appreciate every one of you.  Thank you for reading my blog!  Your comments make each day a little brighter.  And I hope maybe I do a little bit of the same for you.  You guys are the best.

And now for my first giveaway (drum roll) please...
{Green and Gold Cascade Necklace, A-Thread}

I wanted to give something away that maybe you wouldn't be inclined to get for yourself.  I am doing the giveaway the old fashion way.  Just leave a comment on this blog entry.  I will leave the giveaway open for one week.  It will close next Tuesday at 12 p.m. MDT.  The winner will be randomly generated and announced on Wednesday morning.  Good luck!  And thank you for making this blogging thing so darn awesome!

  11. So sorry to hear about your leg :( We were thinking about coming down for the big race. Hopefully you get some time to heal in CO (or visit a spa??). I'd also love to win the necklace! One more thing - I'm really digging the way you changed up your pictures.

    1. I've been super bummed about it. I was really looking forward to doing the marathon. Nate and I are getting a couples' massage so that's something to look forward to! Thanks for letting me know about the photo. I was wondering whether I should keep it or not.

      You totally should! It's the greatest, most versatile wardrobe piece. And the one I listed above from Old Navy is super cute and affordable!

  17. I'm obsessed with this outfit! I'm sorry to hear about your stress fracture... that stinks! And wearing a boot? That's not fun... but the good news is that you could the motorized shopping carts when you go to Target. You have to find the silver lining, right? Congrats on reaching 100... anyone not loving you and your blog already is missing out. Do me a solid and make sure I win that beauty, ok? I mean, I am your buddy and all!

    1. Chelsea, I very clearly remember when I had 7 followers. And I had 7 followers for so long that I almost took my followers off. So glad I didn't know! You will get there one day!
