Lust List – Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale

Why is it that every single time I put myself on an online shopping freeze so many awesome sales have to happen? Last week Jeff and I sat down and put ourselves on a budget. With our wedding fast approaching it was necessary. And this week Nordstrom is having their Half Yearly Sale, and I can hear my credit card calling my name from my purse across the room.

Even if I can’t buy anything (or do you think Jeff would notice a few tiny purchases?), that doesn’t mean I haven’t spent the weekend browsing the sales, and dreaming.

Here are a few of the things I’m lusting after…

Olivia Moon Knit Blazer – I’m a sucker for blazers. They’re such an easy way to make a tee and pair of jeans look put together. I love this one because its lightweight and has an easy & casual feel to it, yet it looks chic. It also comes in grey and navy.

Shift Dress – I’m all about filling my closet with versatile pieces. This dress could easily be worn on its own, or with a pair of leggings. It comes in a bunch of great colors. I’m loving it in white and blue grass.

Scalloped Top – In the Summer I love wearing sleeveless tops to work under my blazer or cardigan. Its a huge plus if I can take off a layer and still be dressed appropriately for the office. The scalloped hem dresses the top up a bit which I love. It would look great with jeans or shorts.

Tee – I’m always on the hunt for chic tees, but they’re so hard to find. I want to feel comfortable, yet put together, and this tee might just do the trick.

Sam Edelman Sandals – Jeff would tell me that I definitely do not need these. He’s not a big fan of my ever growing footwear collection, especially the number of sandals I own. I love that these are casual, yet can be dressed up a bit because they have a little sparkle. They run small, so order a size up.

Kate Spade Watch – I want all of the Kate Spade things. I love a good watch. This would look great day or night, office or weekend. I think it would do a great job dressing up a tee and jeans.

Kate Spade Bag – My collection of purses/bags is nearly as extensive as my collection of shoes. I love a bright colored bag for the summer. I have a Liz Claiborne purse in a very similar color, and its just the perfect pop for neutral outfits. 

Did you notice a trend? I love taking casual outfits and dressing them up a bit.

Updating
I’m working on updating my About Me page. It’s been needing a refresh for a while so its time to buckle down and get it done. Stay tuned for that.

Remembering
So many things that I need to get done at work this week. I’m also trying to make a list of all of the wedding things I need to tackle. It’s going to be such a busy week, I don’t even know if there will be time to eat.
Needing
To take body measurements. I’ve been eating much healthier, working out and drinking a lot more water lately. I also haven’t had any Pepsi in 29 days (this is huge!), but I haven’t seen any results on the scales. Measurements will help me stay motivated, and show progress, even when the scale doesn’t. The wedding is officially less than three months away and I neeeed to lose weight (or at least to slim down) to fit into that dress.
Wearing
Jeans and a sweater. It has not been tropical around these parts for the past few days.
Being
Stressed, yet motivated. I really really want to blog more, and to get my Etsy shop updated. It just always seems like there is never enough time in the day.

Doing
Having out on the couch with Jeff relaxing and watching The Catch. The perfect way to wind down after a very full and wonderful weekend of bbqs, family suppers, and our first backyard fire of the season.
Appreciating
Being surrounded by great family and friends. I know what its like to live very far away from your family. And ever since I’ve moved home from Alberta, I know what its like to live very far away from your best friends. Its been nearly five years but I’m finally starting to settle in and have a group of people around me.
Designing
A lot of things lately. I’m working on some new products for my shop, putting together a plan for our backyard (it needs to look great when everyone is around at wedding time), and working on a design for my cousin’s new rental property. I’ll be sure to share all of the things when I’m done 🙂

Humming
I know its not new, and totally last year, but every time it comes on the radio it gets stuck in my head.
Expecting
This is going to be a very busy week at work, and outside of work. I’m working my butt off to get things ready for rowing season, aiming to launch the new products in my shop within the next few weeks, and hoping to post a little more regularly.


Life Lately

You guys these past few weeks have been sooo busy. I feel like I haven’t stopped.

A couple weeks ago flew to Labrador City to spend the weekend with Jeff and his family and to keep him company on the drive back. Lab City, its not an awesome spot, but I am so glad I went. I got to see a lot of the province that I hadn’t seen before, and I loved spending time with Jeff’s family. They’re a blast. We couldn’t have asked for more generous and gracious hosts. I wish they lived closer. 



The drive back was soooo long. Hours upon hours of nothing. A six hour long section of unpaved road. And zero cell service for a majority of the time. We left Lab City at 5am and got to our hotel in Forteau at 7pm. We showered, grabbed pizza for supper, and were asleep long before 10pm. The next day we got up at the crack of dawn, took the ferry to St. Barbe and hit the road for home. We finally pulled into our driveway around 2:30pm and I wanted to kiss the pavement in our driveway.



Last weekend Jeff and I had a fire with friends Friday night. Spent Saturday doing chores. Sunday was beautiful so we ate breakfast on the deck, hung out at the petting zoo in our back yard, and worked on a few wedding things (yay).

“These guys don’t know how close to death they really are.” – Jeff
Finally sandal weather

And this past weekend I went home to spend Mother’s Day with my Momma. Which was really really nice. And I stuffed my face with lobster and mussels for the first time this year! Sooo good.

PS. I haven’t had a can of Pepsi in 8 days. Which is huge for an addict like me. Here’s to hoping the pounds start falling off.
Have you been super busy lately too? How did you spend Mother’s Day weekend?
