Pink is blooming

Another lovely day spent inside staring at this (and many other) computer screens! I did get to take a little walk to grab lunch and I also convinced Brett to drive out to Grand Rapids to have dinner with me. I told him he could go to Vertigo Record Shop and buy something, so of course, he comes out. I should try that more often. "Brett, if you clean the apartment, you can go to Vertigo!" It'd work like a charm - no idea why I didn't think of that before! We ate at The Grand Coney - our favorite diner in the area - and now I'm back again, in class!

We took some of these shots in Heritage Hill. I really miss living here sometimes, but I'm also really in love with living in our neighborhood in Grand Haven. Heritage hill was just really nice because you're just up the hill from downtown Grand Rapids and yet it's still vintage and has such charm. Our house on the hill wasn't exactly picturesque, but at least we were surrounded by gorgeous vintage homes! It's fun though - living in crummy little apartments - when you're first married. Brett and I lived in a few shoeboxes and we honestly had so much fun. It's times like that - you laugh about for years.

I received this gorgeous ring from Morado. She crafts really delicate and pretty polymer clay-crafted rose jewelry and ornament pieces! Her shop is full of so many beautiful pieces - the rose detailed piggy banks are seriously - ah! So pretty. This ring has gotten compliments all day long - and I can't stop touching it because I love that it's made from clay and feels amazing. Check out the shop - and take my word - these rings are so perfect for spring!

I got this skirt-turned-dress from Brittany's shop, Finders Keepers! When she posted it, I knew immediately I had to have it. I love turning skirts into dresses - and the print on this instantly drew me in. I can't believe how much floral print I've purchased. I still have so much hanging in my closet I have yet to debut on the blog. I have some fun photoshoot ideas coming up - I just need time to go out and do them! I got these nude floral tights from the UO $5 sale! I love them, but they are a small/medium and are kind of big - and they sag - and when they do I look like an old lady with wrinkly skin. It's kind of gross.. so I have to pull them up constantly! They need to be put in the washing machine and that should do the trick. Have a great Friday everyone! We finally have a free weekend and I cannot wait! Next week is my last week of real college classes! Wish me luck!
