Labor Day Excitement

I won't bore you with a play by play of my weekend, but it was pretty eventful so I just have to post a few highlights! Lets start from the top...

I cut my hair. 

don't you just love my shirt from Ruffles with Love?

It was time for a change. I scrolled through my iPhone & I'm sporting a top knot in over half of my outfit photos! Not acceptable. Thus, I decided to chop it all off. I had it done Friday night & am loving it so far. I was worried about running with it, but I did 9 miles over the weekend & had no problems. 

My sister got engaged! 

Yay! I am so excited for her :) I have known for over a month because I picked out the ring! It was killing me to keep this secret, especially when we spent a week on vacation together. She has asked me to be her Maid of Honor & Ella will be her flower girl as well. They're hoping for a winter wedding in December of 2014, so we have time to plan but I know it will fly. So freaking exciting!

Obviously we had to celebrate, which meant my parents made an unexpected trip to visit. The boys golfed & the ladies shopped, making for a perfect end to the weekend. 

shopping at Target with Ella :)

I'm back to school today! Wish me luck for a fabulous school year! 


  1. Love the new haircut! Looks great!

    That ring is gorgeous! Great job!

  2. Great haircut - the selfie with you and Ella shows the contrast.

    Yep, I was rousting my boys (15 & 16) at 7AM this morning trying to transition them back - they start on Thursday.

  3. Ah I can't believe you cut it! Such guts, I could never do that. It looks great on you! I want to see a picture of it curly too. And oh-my-god, your sisters ring. I'll just go ahead and pin that to my "wedding" board on pinterest because it is the perfect ring. Good job picking it out!
