{sick outfit…literally}

You guys, I’m officially sick.

The cold finally hit me.  I’ve been fighting it for over a week.

I have a rule for sick days…..

Don’t dress like you feel.  Wear something cozy, but make sure it’s cute.

Is it just me, or can a cute outfit make you feel a little better?  Just a little?

If I wore a hoodie and leggings to work (which I’ve never in my life done) I would probably just surrender.  Lay my head on my desk and give up.

I will survive.  Because I have a cute cozy sweater on.  My favorite slide on sneakers.  And of course, jeans.

{“the” leather jacket}

Day #2 of my leather jacket love affair.

It was brought to my attention the other night that I am passionate about very few things….

(not in any particular order)

Family + friends

Food

Clothes

Holidays

Wine

And a good deal!

This is a true story.  Which makes since today and why I’m currently head over heels in love with this leather jacket!!

IMG_3823

I’ve been on the hunt for THE perfect leather jacket.  Did I mention that I’m also picky AF?  It’s a big task to meet all the criteria!  And the price tag has a lot to do with it too.

My advise to you:

Add this to your Christmas list.

Unless you’re not still 10 years old (like me) and still making a Christmas list.

My list even comes via email with links + promo codes….HA!!  Shit you not, this is a true story!

Back to the jacket…..

Last weeks intentions: {weekend notes}

 

Our weekend highlights and not so highlights….

 

Link //

Our beloved pet rabbit passed away Friday afternoon.  We are guessing old age?  Or possibly the move.  He never seemed nearly as happy at the new place as he used to be.  I do know one thing, he lived a good life.  I will miss my morning rabbit greetings in the morning.  I still catch myself opening the slider and calling his name.  Bay is the fence about getting a new pet.  She’s assured me that, no pet could be as cool as Link.  I think she’s right.  Maybe with time….

You can read a little more about him here:

Our Christmas cards came and I completely forgot that I added this picture above to the back out our cards.  Our little tribute to Link ♥

Some of our favorites…..

RIP Link ♥

You even made this cold-hearted bitch shed crocodile tears!!!

 

We spent the rest of the weekend doing anything and everything to salvage what we had left of it.   Cooking + shopping.  Two of my favorite things!  And Bay got to cut a rug at the Father Daughter Dance ♥

 

Father Daughter Dance //

Bay + her dad (aka baby daddy) went to the Father Daughter Dance.  I love this tradition of theirs.  She did her own makeup and looks about 15…I die!!  But, she felt beautiful and looked beautiful, so that’s all that matters.

She said it was like a date night with her dad.  So sweet!!!

UC Davis Arboretum Plant Sale //

When they say they’re having a plant sale, they are not messing around.  We found our way to the Teaching Nursery located near the Arboretum.  Plants are organized by shade + sun.  Grasses + trees + shrubs + succulents.  Indoor + outdoor.  They even supply the wagons for you to load up with plants.  Garden experts ready for all the questions.  We had a student walk us to our car and load up our plants.

Look at all the pretty plants I scored.  Actually, 2 of them are my Mom’s.  My 6 plants cost $25.00.

If you’re interested in the next sale, click on the link below.  I believe this was the last sale for 2017.  I’m sure there will be more come Spring.

Davis Farmer’s Market //

I can’t remember the last time I went to the Saturday market.  I had apples on my mind.  In search of the best apple to make my first apple pie.

IMG_3674

I found all kinds of goodies.  And another plant.  Everyone needs a Christmas cactus.  When I spotted a white Christmas cactus, I knew it was meant to be.  The honey nut squash, which I’ve also never seen before is our veggie of the week.  It came with a recipe: roast honey nut squash with rosemary and gruyere.  OMG!!!  Stay tuned!

{sweater weather}

IMG_2592

It’s officially sweater weather in California!!!  I’ve put one on every day this week and loving every second of it!

I grabbed this cute pink leopard print cardi last week.  Remember when I tried on the dress that Instagram Story Polls said “NO”?  Ha.  Clearly, I can’t let it go.  Not yet!  Maybe tomorrow 🙂

Do you follow Target Does It Again on Instagram?  If not, you really should.  Unless you don’t like Target.  Or super cute stuff from Target.  And if you fall under either of those categories, then we can’t be friends.

The reason I tell you, FOLLOW Target Does It Again….

They always post pics of the New Arrivals.  Sometimes before they’ve even hit the internet.  Then you drop what you’re doing.  Hop in your car.  Drive straight to Target to find the super cute shit they posted.

That my friends is how I found this cardigan.

 

$29.99 by Mossimo Cardigan

Not to mention, they always look so damn cute in everything they post.

It’s currently only available in-store (not online yet).  Target Davis had a shit ton of them.  I  haven’t been to the Woodland store yet, but chances are they’ve got them too.

 

The rest of the ootd:
