Life Lately V.13

Life has been pretty non stop around here lately! Boyfriend took a quick business trip out of the country, I went and visited my family for a few days and then had some big work things happening that kept me busy! But here is a little glimpse into whats been happening:

I have had this empty white wall in the kitchen bothering me and knew just what I needed to add to make it work. We have some floating shelves to house cookbooks and the dog treats, and I had this Ikea Ribba frame that the glass had broken on. After a quick trip to Home Depot for a piece of wood, boyfriend sanded and spray painted the day away and we had a nice new framed chalkboard that was the perfect addition!

Oops! Me and my manager Alyssa accidentally wore the same top on the same day! We kept teasing the customers that this was going to be the new uniform since a few other girls also ended up wearing this same color! 

This little guy turned 2! I feel sad we didnt do anything too big, but I bought him a big meaty bone to keep him occupied for a few hours and he loved it! Happy Birthday Lewis!

My favorite thing about fall... Pumpkin Pie! I only indulge for about 2 months out of the year, but it is one of my most favorite desserts. I picked up this mini version at Whole Foods! Yum! And by the way, can anyone believe it is October 1st? Where has the time gone!

Boyfriend brought back some treats from his travels. In 4 days he was in Germany, France and Italy so we got French fashion magazines (and a good British tabloid!), German Christmas decor, Italian coffee and biscotti and some chocolates from different countries! Love this kind of stuff!

Spent my Saturday working at a different Anthropologie in the area and had a good time in a totally new environment! Wore one of my favorite Anthro dresses and a pair of booties for the day!

And of course after a long Saturday we headed over to 3Thirty3, a cute restaurant right off of PCH on the water for a much needed drink and appetizer. I loved seeing all of the boats in the harbor and watching the sunset. Perfect spot! Looking forward to heading back again for dinner!

    1. Thanks! Its a good way to use a frame that might not be in use!

  4. Is the red top Anthropologie's Lace Peplum Top? If so, I was eyeing it last night. Now I think I need it:)

  5. Okay, 1. The chalkboard looks fantastic. I have been drooling over chalkboard wall art in general lately. Love them. 2. That mini Pumpkin Pie is making me want to go bake one RIGHT NOW. and 3. Wine. Do I really need to go any further with that one?! :)

    1. Awesome! I love working there, and your blog is so cute! Glad you commented!

  8. I love how you two wore the same thing - great minds think alike! Her bracelet reminds me of the Fern Leaf String Bracelet I just saw over at Outfit Additions. That mini pumpkin pie looks so good! I might have to make a special trip to Whole Foods next week to snag one. Kudos to the boyfriend on all of the European goodies, too!
