i know i was a pretty gosh darn good wife. 

sure, i pretty much gave myself a pat on the back, didn't i?
but yeaaaaah, i have been a horrible blogger this week. 
no posts since monday. 

however, i have been a fantastic wife since all my attention was on my man.  i didn't open up my laptop one time and just spent every single second of it with my husband. no emails. no blogging. just me, my husband and the beach. it was heavenly. 

i have so many pictures to share from our amazing time away but for now, as i try to unpack, do laundry and finish up on last minute christmas to-dos, here is an outfit post from the night we went out to celebrate our one year anniversary (can you believe it's been a year?! i know i keep saying that - but it still shocks a good way. i suppose it's true: time flies by when you're have fun!). i loved this dress from my friends at shabby apple - the stripes and the mustard combo are my favorite and i adore the little buttons and pockets that add so much detail to the dress! and the material is so stretchy and comfortable - perfect for my tummy as i stuffed it full with so much sushi until i couldn't walk. talk about a mega food baby. and this vintage clothing inspired dress is just so up my alley, it's going to be worn so much this holiday season! 

and speaking of the holiday season, hope everybody enjoys this last weekend before Christmas. woohoo! 

much love.
{happy friday, friend.}
