Monday Mode Link Up – April 24

Here is to another Monday beautiful friends! I have to admit the past few weeks have been full of ups and downs but today I found myself feeling incredibly happy and excited to go to work tomorrow. Who would’ve thought I was excited for Monday? Me neither.

I finally got to meet one of my blogger friends from Chicago – Megan (<- Click here for her Insta). We met on line a few years ago, back when I was doing #ThriftStyleThursday link up, and she was in town for a travel conference. So we grabbed brunch and chatted about this and that. Ironically enough we both agreed that neither of us wanted to become full-time bloggers because of the unknowns and the uncertainties. Of course having a significant other with a job and benefits helps, but still there are so many fears that I have, I am not even going to go into all the detail. I think I will dedicate a separate post to it. With all that being said, our brunch and our conversation has really inspired me to be a better blogger and not write 4 shitty sentences per post. So thank you, Megan (<- Click here for her blog)!

Today I would like to present you with my favorite pair of pants. They are made of thick scuba like brushed material and are the most comfortable and soft pair from Zara I own. They won me over so fast I found myself checking out with 2 pairs. Isn’t that how it always happens anyways? Sam and I had a long discussion about my shopping addiction afterwards too.

The top is my new favorite from Apt.9 – Dhameer this one is for you 😉 I am loving the pleats and the ease of it. It goes with everything, from my ripped jeans, to shorts, to my favorite pants. Ironically enough I bought it in 2 colors as well. Do you guys buy multiples of your favorite styles?

Make sure to link up with us this week! My favorite part at the end of the week is going through all the linked up posts to see how you let your creativity shine on the Internet!

Another week has come and gone, and this was a tough one. Sam’s grandma passed away, and even though we all know and feel that she is in a much much better place, and what’s more important, with the one she loved her whole life, Bob, it’s still hard oh the family.

I had a very hard time at work. The last two days have been from hell. I don’t know if it’s something in the water, but I am starting to lose my patience, and the best parts of my days are spent in bed or on the couch. I haven’t really worked out in days! And that’s not typically me.

I also went back to juicing. Mainly to go through all the vegetables in the fridge, so now almost all my recipes include carrots or celery. But once I am through with them, I’ll go back to Costco for more exciting combos.

Summer is looking more exciting than I expected. We are starting it off by getting new siding for our house (it still has the original 1950’s wooden tile) during Memorial Day weekend. Then we are road tripping to Milwaukee for a fun and exciting Midwest Bloggers event called Blogger Bazaar! And another road trip to my friend’s wedding in Colorado in July, we’ll be staying and hiking there for about a week afterwards. I am keeping my fingers crossed for a Chicago trip in August! And grateful for Sam who is on board with me when it comes to all these trips.

And tomorrow we get to go somewhere new and exciting for our family! So keep and eye on my Instagram. If you follow me on Twitter, you know what it is! But since it’s not my news to tell, I am going to stop, wish you all a great Saturday and invite you to link up your outfit posts!

Эта неделя была очень нелегкой. В прошлые выходные умерла бабушка Сэма, и хотя мы все понимаем что ей сейчас намного лучше, и она с любимыми людьми, это очень тяжелая потеря для нашей семьи.

На работе был ад! Особенно в четверг и пятницу. Я просто не хочу там появляться. А когда прихожу домой, то только и хочется лежать на диване. О спортзале я давно забыла, что для меня удивительно.

Но я снова начала делать домашние соки. Основным ингредиентом сейчас является морковка или сельдерей, но это просто потому, что надо опустошить холодильник. Когда все это добро закончится, то можно будет съездить в Costco и купить другие продукты. Тогда миксы будут интереснее.

Лето обещает быть веселым и продуктивным. Через пару недель мы начинаем менять сайдинг на доме. Тут пока все облицовано деревом из 50-х!

В середине июня мы едем в Милуоки на распродажу одежды, аксессуаров и прочее блоггеров. Называется все это блоггерский базар. В июле мы едем в Колорадо на свадьбу, и задержимся там на неделю, чтобы насладится природой. И я очень сильно надеюсь, что в августе у нас получится съездить в Чикаго! Безумно рада что мой муж поддерживает все эти идеи, поездки и события!

Всем отличных выходных!

Another week in outfits is here, and once again I managed to skip out on a day! This time I’m missing out a Friday look. But if you read my Thrift Style Thursday post you’ll know that I recently scored a pair of overalls at Ragstock for only $10. That’s what I wore on Friday.

Tuesday’s outfit was also a backup. I was in downtown Minneapolis meeting with Josi and learning about her Kickstarter campaign. After our meeting I went and grabbed a coffee at Caribou, which I then successfully spilt all over my outfit. Yeah, it was one of those days.

Wednesday was PJs day at work, so I wore yoga pants all day! Don’t we all need days like this?

How was your week? Do you have an outfit you want to share? Link it up below, and I’ll make sure to check it out!

Happy Mother’s Day and don’t forget to connect with me:
