black and blue.

 poncho: Belk / skirts: Target / tights: c/o We Love Colors / shoes: TJ Maxx
rings: Charming Charlies, Le Mode Accessories / earrings: c/o Le Mode Accessories

i'm totally feeling the sunday bug. you know the one? when you have random, spontaneous thoughts flutter your still groggy mind from your sunday afternoon nap. then you find yourself thinking about monday and the mile long to-do lists and the events of the week that you are not quite ready to tackle.

so what do i do? i eat my second red velvet cupcake lathered with cream cheese frosting of the day. i look through these outfit pics and realize that my church attire reminds me of a Backstreet Boys album. i browse amazon for more ebooks to download (thinking The Death Cure or The Power of Six). i look up new food recipes on pinterest (this could be bad- not even the holidays yet and all i want are holiday sweets!). and as soon as this post goes up, it's back on the couch for some football, Xfactor, and The Amazing Race.

lazy sunday afternoons/evenings are a must for me. like my phone or any electronic, it's like my recharge for the week - i need to get my battery up from the red light to a full green light. (wow, did i just really use that analogy? i just did. told you i was bit by the sunday bug.) any other fellow sunday couch potatoes out there?

much  love.
[happy monday, friend.] 

p.s. just a couple more days left to enter the Gussy Sews giveaway!

  21. I love Sundays. They might be my favorite day. With Church and seeing friends (and usually lots of baking) I love them so much. But my favorite part of sundays is just laying with Chris and cuddling. Nothing beats that.
