fall in an outfit.

{Sweater: Similar | Shirt: Similar | Pants: Similar | Boots: Tory Burch}




Okay let's talk about my no good, bad, horrible day yesterday. My husband's birthday is today (happy birthday honey). And it's kind of a big one, so I felt like I really needed to pull out all the stops. Yesterday I planned to make his favorite chocolate chip cookies and chocolate peanut butter muffins (yes he likes chocolate). Once I had made everything (yes AFTER I made everything), our oven decided not to work. Not to be thwarted though, I realized there is an oven downstairs in the meeting room, so no worries...that is until the muffins had been in the oven for over an hour because apparently it doesn't actually work. Awesome. So now I have muffin batter and cookie batter and no way of cooking it. Insert tantrum here. 

So then I came up with a great idea. Instead of throwing the batter away, I'll just microwave it. Bad idea. I literally started a fire in our microwave that my husband had to put out because I was just freaking out. Yeah happy birthday honey.  Oh and we live in a big building so everyone was trying to figure out where all the smoke was coming from. Yeah that would be us. Awesome.

I promise I can actually cook...maybe just not without an oven.  Here is to flying by the seat of my pants with this whole birthday thing. 

The good news is at least these outfit photos are cute...right? I mean there's a silver lining there somewhere...

  3. Hi Lindsay! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love yours and am following you now!

    I can't believe what happened with the ovens and the microwave for you!! At the very least, your husband knows you tried your hardest! When the first oven didn't work, I would have thrown out the batter and gone to the store for muffins and cookies. ;o)
