Where Does The Time Go?

Ok, I totally suck at blogging.  I really thought I was going to be good about keeping up with this blog, but I'm not.  The year is already more than halfway through and I have only managed to check one thing off from my kitchen bucket list.

Mr. H and I have been working on planning our anniversary trip for this September.  I can't believe it has already almost been a year!  Time flies.  We were hoping to take a trip down to San Diego, but since our anniversary falls on labor day weekend, everything is super expensive.  Now we're planning on just heading to the bay area for a couple days, which will still be nice.

Anyway, I wanted to share this awesome website I found (if you are into reading).  It's called Thrift Books, and they sell used books for super cheap.  Plus, there's no shipping cost if you live in the states.  I purchased Aldous Huxley's The Perennial Philosophy for $5.44 and William S. Burrough's Junky for only $3.95.  They have used textbooks as well.  Definitely the cheapest books I've been able to find and they have a huge selection, so check them out if you're a bookworm like me.

Until next time, blogworld.

Recent Purchases

I know I never even finished posting the photos from Mr. H's birthday vacation, but I just got my shipment from Charlotte Russe yesterday and wanted to share my new purchases.  I am very happy with them.  I had a 10% off coupon and free shipping, so my total was just a tad over $100.

Pink and Gray Striped Tank Dress. 

Floral Tank Dress.

White and Coral Striped Skirt w/ Bow Belt and Buttons

Above pictured skirt, worn with white H&M tank
and flat brown boots (not very visible).

Black Matte Leatherette Round-Toe Pump

Teal Round-Toe Sueded Wedge

I have totally fallen in love with Charlotte Russe.  I used to not be crazy about the store, but they have a much better variety online and so many shoes that I must add to my collection!  All shoes are still buy one, get one for $12.50, so I may just be ordering some more soon.  The only thing I have trouble with is the sizes for skirts and dresses.  The mediums are a little loose on my waist, but I highly doubt I would fit a small.  Shoes, however, are true to size and for the most part, comfortable.

I know I have not been very good about keeping up with my blog lately, and I know I say that all the time!  Haha.  Life has been crazy.  Mr. H is going to be supervisor soon at his job, we just bought a Mercedes, and our wedding anniversary is around the corner.  We have yet to decide where to go to celebrate (even though the year has not been the best).  It will be more of a "we made it through this crazy year" celebration!  Haha.  I will try and update again soon.

Hope you all enjoy your weekend!
