All my plants are dead

The month of July has been a busy one.  It's taken it's toll on all of us.

Case in point: once upon a time, we had an herb garden.

Holy crap where did June go?  Actually....where did the first half of 2013 go?

I guess I can't complain too much - I just got a promotion, which is exciting.  I can't believe I've been working at my firm for almost two years now.  (Seriously, didn't I just graduate?)

Also, it's a 3-day work week and we're visiting my best friend from high school this weekend.  I'm a little nervous to leave our pups behind (this is our first time boarding them), but I'm definitely excited to get out of town and get away from the heat!

I know he's cute, but don't let the little guy in the top picture fool you.  He's been freaking out lately every time we see other people or dogs on our walks, and we have to take him to the vet this weekend and a kennel over the 4th of July, and I'm terrified that he will be the worst-behaved dog anyone has ever seen and we'll somehow get turned away and/or viewed as the worst puppy parents ever.

Have I mentioned I'm kind of a worrier?  Anyway he's the sweetest little guy with Darryl & I and he loves his buddy Turk, he's just not a huge fan of the rest of the world (don't even get me started on cats).

Anyway, I guess I should say something about my outfit.  This is one of those tops where I'm trying to hold back ordering in every color.  Also, I promise I own an iron - I'll blame my wrinkled skirt on sitting at a desk all day.

So I had a pretty uneventful weekend after being out of town (LA and Chicago) for about a week and a half.  That meant catching up on laundry (which unfortunately doesn't do itself), getting groceries, and cleaning out our fridge (seriously, you don't want to know).  And we saw World War Z, which is definitely worth watching even though it's nothing like the book.  Because zombies*.

We also went to our first bridal show!  And we found a wedding venue!  We are so cool.


Anyway, I'm trying to get back into a routine this week (blogging and otherwise), so we'll see how that goes.   How was your weekend?

*Also, Brad Pitt.

Last week I went to Chicago!


And this week I'm in LA, because my life is so exciting and I'm such a world traveler.  (Or maybe I just have two weeks in a row of training.  I'll let you decide).

Anyway, I mostly just wanted to share that I had the most awesome roommate ever, and also we like to match.

Polka dots

This dress is a recent purchase from Target and I love it!  It's a great business shape but a lightweight fabric - and I love dresses that I can just throw on and not worry too much about accessorizing.  Although (especially when it cools down), I'm looking forward to finding different ways to style it!

Also please excuse the dog hair on that close-up picture.  I've just come to accept the fact that no matter how much we vacuum or use the lint roller, everything we own is covered in dog hair.

Summer uniform

I need to make this my summer uniform at work.  Basic tee, pencil skirt, and minimal accessories, because guys, it is way too hot for anything else.

In other news - I'm going to Chicago this week!  And as I'm typing this, half my closet is poured out on my bed because I am the world's slowest packer.  I'm trying to plan out all my outfits for the week but I'm having commitment issues.  Like I've gotten a lot of new pencil skirts lately and I just want to bring ALL of them.  And I'm purposely using a small suitcase so I that don't go overboard, but I just might crack and use the bigger one or else I'll be up all night trying to narrow it down.
