Randomness

Greetings from blogger slacker-land... anyone else?  Something about the middle of the summer seems to through me off my blogging game but I have a feeling I'm not the only one.  And that's okay - we should be out soaking up our summer!  Sleeping in, eating ice cream for lunch, only taking our swimsuits off to wash them - that's the good stuff and I want to enjoy it for the month we have left (so sad).

Anyway, today I've just got some randomness to throw your way...

Yesterday was our two year anniversary!  I'm so thankful for every day that I get to spend with my best friend, partner in crime and better half and I can't wait to see what the next 50 years have in store for us.  To celebrate, we did dinner and stuck with the traditional gifts - cotton for two years - but I'll have a separate post coming on that soon :)

Wedding recap posts

How gorgeous is this pearl blossom statement necklace (on sale right now!) from The Happiness Boutique?  It just came in and I have a feeling it's one I'm going to wear nonstop- it'll go with everything from cocktail dresses to even dressing up a flannel shirt this fall.  Make sure to check out The Happiness Boutique in general because they offer super reasonable prices, free shipping and even have a customer reward program.  Doesn't get much better than that. 


Speaking of shopping, this gorgeous Michael Kors trench coat is on it's way to me right now - thanks to Kate for the recommendation!  I had to order it online in the petite size since I'm a shorty at 5'3" but it's so well made and I love the classic khaki color.


This past Saturday, my beautiful friend Alex got married :) It was such a great night celebrating her and Mark and we all couldn't be happier for the two of them as they start their life together.  You know it was an amazing night when you realize the next morning that we didn't even get one decent picture of all of us!

My stand-in date while Nick was at his best friends bachelor party!

On Sunday, I headed back to Holland for a BBQ and to see the Marshall Tucker Band with my family.  Despite only knowing like two of the MTB songs, it was still a fun concert and the weather couldn't have been more perfect for the outdoor seating.  


This pup.  Thank goodness he doesn't mind car rides cause we've been carting him all over the entire state of Michigan this summer.  My car on the other hand... the all black interior can't quite handle all of the blonde fur EVERYWHERE!


My blogging duties are done for the day - back to the ice cream ;) Happy Tuesday!!

  1. We try to do something with the traditional anniversary gifts, too. Our fifth anniversary is later this year, so I need to think of something that involves wood.

  17. Happy Anniversary! :)
    They have great covers that hang over the head rests of seats for dogs to lay on & keep hair off the seats. We use it just because we have leather & don't want claws poking in it.

  20. Looks like you've been up to lots of fun! I can't wait to hear what you got for your anniversary. Isn't the Happiness Boutique stuff so cute?! I just got a necklace that I can't wait to wear on repeat either. I feel the same about carting Finn everywhere, but thankfully he's so good in the car. Happy Tuesday, friend!

  33. Happy 2 years - we mark #4 tomorrow :)

    You need to get a seat cover for dear old Brady's hair in your car - it works wonders once you get all the original hair up!

  34. Happy two year anniversary! Nothing better than watching a concert outside, it is just something about it. My dog always leaves fur everywhere so I know how it feels, I give up attempting to clean it because it'll just be the same a few hours later.
