struggles.

 t-shirt: c/o Skip N' Whistle / skirt: Forever 21 / sandals: c/o Blowfish Shoes 

day 20 of the challengeshare something you are struggling with right now.

i am struggling with...

...not being able to hold back from eating the entire bag of sour gummies sitting on my desk right now.

...not not wearing this Skip N' Whistle t-shirt every day because it has easily become a favorite.

...the fact that i finished the first season of Hart of Dixie last week and cannot find season two anywhere.

...missing my long hair and being able to put it up in a messy bun especially this morning when we ran out the door to church in a hurry and it was rainy and icky outside - so really, what was the point of straightening my hair? 

...all these pesky spiders making their appearances around the apartment (due to the warmer weather, people - i promise i have kept a clean home for me and the husband)

...missing Chicago and springtime city happenings.

...that i have not yet seen The Great Gatsby or the new Star Trek yet!

... trying to organize and settle on all of my wedding reception ideas because Pinterest is so freaking awesome. tell me, how did people plan weddings before it?!


much love.
{happy monday, friend.}

  1. Ilene, I was sporting one of your headbands in Publix today when I saw your dad. Yes, I introduced myself and told him I had at least six of your headbands. He probably thought I was weird, but oh well....

  2. And I love your bangs. One good thing about hair is that it will grow out, and you didn't cut it drastically, so it will be quicker than you think.
