"Is That Your Grandma's Sweater?"

Eric asked me this once over summer when I wore this.
Now it finally sees my blog!
I don't think this sweater looks grandma-like, and if it does that's a very stylish grandma.

I'm Back!

Sorry I have been gone for so long!
It id always an event when I go back to school.
Before I even get on the plane I am busy with seeing friends for the last time, making last trips to my favorite place Target, packing (of course) and crying...a lot.
I miss my family and Eric a ton when I'm away in the wild west. (well duh)
But it is always nice to come back to Wyoming and see all my friends.
This is another exciting year too because I am graduating!!!
Now that I am back at school I hope posts are more frequent and that you enjoy my favorite season of all, fall looks.
Welcome back to the chaos people, turbulence is always possible.

Sushi Date

I love this outfit!
This mix of teal and black makes me so happy!
I was probably really happy then too because Eric and I had a sushi lunch this day. 
I have worn this outfit a few times and just haven't gotten around to pictures but today, today I snapped some pretty shots.

The Back Shirt Knot


I bought this top awhile back at Old Navy and of course it was an "oh this is so cute I have to have it" kind of buy. When it came in the mail it was a pretty long shirt. I thought "oh just wash and dry it once and that usually fixes every shirt" so I did that and it was still long so I just decided to deal with it being long.
Months later I buy these shorts that match the shirt pretty darn well but it does not look right tucked in. How to fix this? The back shirt knot fixed it. It's the same as the front shirt knot only it's in the back (surprise) and it added a little extra appeal or odd looks in my case. It does look a little funny from the side, I admit that, but it does the job on shortening the shirt to a good length to be worn untucked and it does add that extra "look at me" flare.
I've used a lot of quotation marks today.

Sock Bun, Floral Shorts and a Wonderful Anniversary

It's been a long few days and I have been having fun with my longer hair, dressing myself in comfy cute clothes and enjoying my last few weeks that I have with Eric.
Our anniversary was on the first and it has been awhile but I just want to say thank you to Eric for giving me this beautiful bracelet and a great date night celebrating 4 years of us. From 1,300 miles away to being right down the street I 'm so happy we have beat the odds of a long distance relationship.

Hummingbird Happenings

At my house we have been seeing 3 different hummingbirds and every time I see one I giggle with delight! I love to see how tiny they are and yet are so agile and graceful as they hover by the feeder and drink the sweet syrup we have put out for them.
This love for the little hover crafts got me thinking: where are the hummingbirds coming from?
I always thought of hummingbirds as exotic animals that are only in zoos.
Turns out 49 of the 50 states have humming birds during the summers! Guess which one doesn't have the delightful little guys? This answer will surprise you....

The only state that doesn't have hummingbirds grace their presence is Hawaii!
And I'm sure you thought Alaska! I did!
At our feeder we have a beautiful purple and green fellow, a red throat/chested one and the smallest of the three is a little brown one.

We love our collection of birds we have at out feeder and I hope you found these hummingbird facts interesting.
Lesson over.
