Sunday was gorgeous around these parts. There's just something so perfect about the sky in October. Have you ever noticed that? It's the most gorgeous shade of blue this time of year. Toby was having a field day over at our neighbor's house thanks to their gaggle of children, so while he played hide and go seek with all of them, we took Linden on a little stroll. This pretty little area is just down the road from our house, and is the very same plot of land that I played in when I was about 4 years old. It's kind of fun to walk through areas like that and remember some of the adventures I had.

Last week wasn't the best for me in terms of getting up and getting dressed (despite saying I was totally going to do just that...) Like I mentioned in my Currently post, things have been majorly busy around here. Luckily we made some insane headway on our kitchen addition this past weekend and I'm actually typing from the new counter! That probably sounds strange to include since it's pretty irrelevant, but we actually realized that our raised counter that Mike built would be the perfect height for a standing desk. Truth bomb: We were both using an ironing board in the kitchen as a standing desk when we needed to work/study and Linden demanded being held haha! This is much nicer and way more sturdy. Anyway, we're finally finishing up the kitchen makeover and getting the house together. I'm hoping to share some snapshots from around the house soon. I can't believe we've been here for almost 2 years and I've yet to do that. Then again so much of it feels unfinished. That's usually how it goes, right?

Now about this outfit: It's the standard Kaelah uniform, but I love the bright cardigan and the fun print on the dress. They're schematics for airplanes, helicopters, etc! There might even be a blimp on there haha! Fun right? Both the cardigan and necklace are from Stitch Fix, and the dress is a Modcloth grab. It felt really good to curl my hair (for the first time in 2+ weeks!), put on some makeup, and even paint my nails this weekend. I feel like a new person when I'm ever so slightly put together haha

This week I'm hoping to make a little more progress on our Halloween costume and format a few more Rad Gal, Rad Gig and Baggage submissions! (Click the "Submissions" page if you want to get in touch about being featured!) I'm also on the beginning stretch of the holiday sign rush! It's super exciting to be able to paint so many gifts for people. I just got a new shipment of supplies last Tuesday and I'm already sold out of one of the sizes again! Madness! But I'm definitely pinching myself for the opportunity to do what I do and work from home. So thanks to everyone who orders and reads here and all that jazz. You make it happen!

Drop back by tomorrow because there's going to be a super fun giveaway that I'm really excited to share! There might even be a few more fun giveaways brewing, too! xo

  1. You look so great! That dress is so fun!

  2. That dress is just a perfect gorgeous color. It works with so many cardigan/shoe choices, too - but I like the bright orange-y coral! Isn't it just a whole new world when you can talk yourself into putting real clothing on? I never realize how nice it feels until we actually have plans on a weekend and I pick out something I WANT to wear, not just a nursing tank/yoga pants combo or work clothes, but actually plan an outfit. Which will end up drooled on within an hour, but still! Totally worth it.

    That reminds me that I keep needing to get my Baggage submission together! Yeesh. I don't have teh brain cells God gave a goat these days. Actually, saying that is kind of insulting to the goat.
