And that’s a wrap. Happy Labor Day friends! The official end to my favorite season of the year. Summer went by way too fast but we made it a memorable one. This was the summer that our Summer learned how to swim all on her own. Hopefully we get a few more beach and pool days in during September because we aren’t quite ready to pack away the bathing suits in the House of Leo! What can I say? We are summer people!
So I never really got into the romper trend. Don’t get me wrong. I love the trend, but I just don’t have a big need for it. I get dressed up during the week for work and the weekends I tend to grab distressed denim shorts with cute tanks. Date night I usually go for distressed jeans (you know how much I LOVE distressed, distressed, distressed!). So more rompers just never really made it into my closet. I do have one though that I’ve had awhile and I still love it. I got it years ago from a boutique so I don’t know the brand but it’s the softest material ever.
As I was looking at it in my closet the other day it dawned on me that the color is so perfect for fall, but who wants to wear summery looking rompers in the fall? Insert the chunky, cozy cardigan.
Thirteen years ago I made a big mistake. I walked into a puppy store. I now know never to buy a dog from a pet store and I’ve never done that again, but this one time I did. I asked to see a little yorkie who looked so scared hiding in the corner. I thought to myself who is going to buy this sad looking dog. So out he came into my arms. After cuddling him for a few minutes what did he do? He nose dived out of my arms. I felt awful. This poor dog was so traumatized. I put him back in his cage but all I could think about is how can I leave him there? I was still living with my parents at the time and pleaded with them to let me get him. They really weren’t happy about it because I already had Bijou, my maltese. But all I could think about was that sad little puppy that jumped out of my arms. I went back the very next day and got him.
So this is it. Labor Day weekend is upon us. While summer doesn’t end for another good month, Labor Day always makes me feel that the official summer season is over. So for those of who had summers off I hope you enjoy this last week of “summer.” School mode will be in full effect come a week from now.
My little Benjamin Angelo turns 11 today. I don’t even know how that is possible. Where does time go?! Our Bubby (as Summer nicknamed him) is a lover, space cadet, nut and mush all mixed into one. He is picky with who he likes but if he likes you then he really likes you! He sleeps on my head every night (yes my dogs sleep in my bed and I wouldn’t dream of having it any other way) and when I come home he literally throws himself at me with excitement. Those bear paws and big eyes melt me daily. So Benny today is your day! Happy Birthday my lil love!Read More
