The old docks

Happy Monday! I'm back from a long weekend spent in Austin, Texas for TxSC CAMP. It was an amazing weekend. To be totally honest, I wasn't sure how I felt about going leading up to last week. Sometimes I can get really anti-social, or nervous about new people, and I was literally about to bunk with people I had never met before in real life. But everybody there was so supportive, kind and welcoming. I'll talk more about TxSC later when I do my blog posts on it, but I feel super inspired and empowered now that I'm back in Michigan. And can I just give a huge shoutout to Chelsea, who made me feel like I always had a friend at camp? I couldn't find a nicer girl if I tried.

Today was a good start to the week, but man I am tired! My flight got in around 11:30pm last night, and they lost my luggage so I had to go home empty-handed. It arrived today at work, with the strap broken, of course. Boo! We had dinner tonight with Eric's sister, brother-in-law, and our niece and we asked them to be part of the wedding, so that was fun! A lot of people asked me at camp when our date was, and I realized I haven't really talked much about the wedding so far! I'm going to start a monthly recap soon, but we're getting married next October! It's going to be a rustic, barn wedding here in Michigan. I'm excited. I know, I know, it's not at a lighthouse. But our mini moon will have a couple of lighthouses. ;)

I love this outfit right now. I wear it pretty often. Mixing brown and black is one of my favorite things to do, since the very beginning of my blog. I love this post where I mixed the two colors, and I'm like "I think I found a way to make it work this time" with my serious fashion face on. Hahah, oh 2009 Tieka. You're fun. I do love how long I've been blogging though. It was one of the things this past weekend that just also made me super proud. It was five years last September and I didn't even celebrate! I'll have to celebrate for six years next time around. Confetti cake is overdue.

I'll be back more this week to recap the conference! Now I'm off to watch Friends, and relax with my two loves. I'll see you guys tomorrow! xo
