Etsy PSA

This short public service announcement is in regards to Etsy and mini MOO cards.

For those of you that have never heard of mini MOO cards, they are basically tiny business cards.  What makes them so awesome is that you can have a different picture on the back of EVERY single card in your order (if you so choose).  Here's what they look like:

More info on the company and products  HERE

Anyway, for those of you that have a shop on Etsy, I just wanted to let you know (in case you haven't heard) that they're offering a FREE order of the mini cards (you just pay for shipping). You can find more info about the offer here.

Note: I get no compensation of any sort from this.  I just wanted to pass the info along because this is such a good deal!  I placed my order last night (basically as soon as I saw it. Ha).  So go hurry and get yours!

Hope you all have a lovely Friday!

Lazy Weekends

I can't believe the weekends just fly by so quickly! And now Monday's almost over. Let's hope the rest of the week flies by so we can get to the weekend again!

This past weekend was just a nice lazy weekend.  The hubs and I spent a lot of time just hangin out and bummin around since the weather was so nice.  I found some suspcious looking berries. I was told they were strawberries but I don't know...

Do I dare try it?

Nah! Although I did bust one open just to see what the heck it was. It smells like a mix between a peach and a pumpkin. Anyone know what the heck this thing is??

I hope you all had as much fun this past weekend as I did!

Weekend Happenings

Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend.  The weekends always seem too short. *sigh*

With only 3 weeks left until the Disneyland Half Marathon, I really need to step up my training! This past Saturday was my 11 mile run.  Running 11 miles nonstop was like torture. There were times when I felt like my shin was fracturing or my ankle was about to give.  BUT... thankfully I finished! If I want to meet my goal of 2 hours I really need to push myself even harder.  This coming Saturday will be 12 miles... the LONGEST run before the actual race. I gotta keep my eye on the prize.. err.. medal.

In other (more enjoyable) news, I had another wonderful belated birthday celebration.  Yup, that's right... I'm another year older (although when you get to a certain age it seems like all the years seem to blend together). I don't feel any different at all. Sometimes when people ask me how old I am I actually have to stop and think about it. Ha.

I would love to hear about your weekend!

@Home Fitting Room

This is series I like to call the At-home fitting room.  The mr. hates shopping so I do most of mine online to spare him the agony.  I usually only like to shop from stores that offer free shipping unless I come across something that I really really like.  Usually, I purchase online and then return in-store.  It's just a system that works for me.  This first blush colored skirt is from Forever21.  I believe it was from their Love21 line. This skirt is like a combination of boho and girly.  It's a little on the thin side so I'd suggest a slip underneath.  Unfortunately, it's currently sold out online but maybe you can find it in-store!  Here's something similar  

This one is from ASOS (from the River Island brand).  I have been looking for a circle skirt.  The first one I purchased as a polka dotted one from Forever21.  It was beautiful and the quality was great! It's too bad it ran a little large.  This one is a good fit.  Unfortunately, I think it's out of stock atm.  I apologize.  I purchased this skirt 2 weeks ago but didn't get around to posting.  In case they restock it, you can find it here

Now this last dress is still available! I had also been looking for a fitted lace dress.  I really wanted a different color (I think it was mint green) but they were all out of my size.  The one in dusty pink was also out of my size. darn.  However, I'm kinda glad I went with the navy.  I think I'll get more use out of this color.  I could probably wear it in other seasons as well (ahh the perks of living in California).  It's not quite as fitted as some other lace dresses perhaps because they run a little large for us petite gals.  I'd still recommend it.  It looks 10x better in person.  You can find it here

I hope you found this post helpful!  I'd love to see your latest finds as well!  Maybe I'll see something that I MUST have. We can enable each other ;)
