She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not: Me!

Every once and a while I like to share what I'm loving and not loving! So in this installment, it's little ole me (:


She Loves Me:


1. It's been 70 degrees a few times in Seattle since I've been back!


2. My Pottery Barn discount. Can't wait to show you my purchases for my room from PB.  Such a perk of working there (:
Here's a peak of the rug and white curtains:


3. My tie-dye Maxi dress.  I think it'll be a fun transition into Fall. I've already worn leggings under it and no one even knew...sneaky!


4. Martyn Lawrence Bullard's line for Schumacher.

5. Grilled Nectorines topped with honey and vanilla.  We went over to a friend's house the other day and she made us this sweet treat paired with vanilla ice cream for dessert. In love. 


6. Lady Antebellum's new CD, Own the Night. On repeat. All day long.


She Loves Me Not:
1. The dog who used to occupy our unit. I hope he had real bladder control issues and that his owners didn't just LET him go to the bathroom all over our carpet. I mean really...who lets that happen?!


2. I can't pull off Toms to save my life.  Every time I see them in the store I try them on in every color, in hopes of being able to rock a pair.  I can't.  They're not me and all my friends know it.  I'm slowly coming to terms.


3. No In N' Out in Washington.  Really, I don't know how we make up here without it. And yes, this is the third time in n' out has been mentioned in this series. {Time number one, time number two.}
4.  My brand new car, Skylar, already has a crack in her windshield :(  I guess a rock hit it while we made our 14 hour drive from California ---> Washington.


5. Rude people in the workplace.  Come on folks...can't we all bare to put a smile on for the 6-8 hours you're at work? Where's the customer service these days?!

What about you? What are you loving this week?  Spill.
Yay for Wednesday!
Love,

  1. I am loving that out here in MD fall keeps teasing us little by little, but we're still getting some nice summer days in between :-)

    Can't wait to see the room!

  2. i been meaning to check out lady antebellum album!!! im sure it's good!

    I actually was looking at Toms shoes this weekend and I dont think I can rock the flats..they do have wedges so maybe try that?

  3. I can't rock Tom's OR Khaki pants, as a matter of fact. I am so jealous of the ones that can look adorable on the work commute in Toms. Not so much loving my lack of menu inspiration due to the weather. Too fall-like for summer salads, to rainy to grill, and still too warm for soups and casseroles. tacos it is!

  4. Have you tried "Dicks" yet? It is the WA version of In-n-Out. My husband is from CA and we always get into fights which one is the better one. I say "Dicks".

  5. Leggings under the maxi dress is a great idea!! And oh no about Skylar's windshield! Ryan has a HUGE crack in his...time to get that fixed!

  6. ARGH, rude people pretty much anywhere tick me off...there really isn't any need for it, peeps! Be civilized! (c: And the PB discount is the bomb.com...I have gotten a plethora of ridic bargains over there with it...can't wait to see your room makeover!!! And I'm so glad I'm not the only one that isn't jumping on the Toms trend...I just can't do it, nope, can't do it!

  9. Love that you wore leggings under your maxi! Such a fantastic idea! Those grilled nectarines look deeeelish!!

    I totally agree with you on customer service!! People have been outright rude in retail!! even at Nordstrom where their job is based on commission!! You got me!

  10. Man those nectarines look amazing and how I long to be back in Seattle. Promise you will take some pics of campus and post them so I can walk down memory lane! Still have to get the hubby up there so he can see what he has missed.

  11. I love the new Lady A album! So good! :) I'm loving the storm we got yesterday that made me bring out my sweaters. So nice. Oh and that nectarine treat sounds amazing!

  12. I'm with you on the Tom's and have the same issue with 'Chucks' - i like them, but need more sole!
    For a totally excellent burger? try Burgerville- except i don't think they are in the Seattle area? maybe on your trip back south you'll see one and know the reason it's a must stop.

  13. Hi Michaela!
    I recently realized we have a lot of mutual friends on facebook and both went to similar high schools. I went to Presentation and am from Morgan Hill. However, I now go to school in Tacoma. Such a small world!
    I decided to comment now because I have great news. They are opening an In N Out in Bellvue!!! I believe it is supposed to open in April. So exciting!

  14. Those nectarines look divine!!! I need to try those...and yay for store discounts!

  15. I completely miss In-N-Out too in California... I ate there a little too much :) Now I'm in withdrawals!

  16. I agree, this Washington September has been amazing. I always say we have better weather in Sep than we do in June!

  17. I pretty much adore every one of the things you listed under the "love" category! Those pillows are beyond fabulous!

  18. people are so offensive.
    how are you gonna sing at my wedding if you cant wear toms?!

  19. Toms has true ballet flats coming out next spring - I have wanted a pair for a long time but, like you, they just don't look right on me. I can't wait for the new style to come out!

  20. I love your blog! I'm a TOMS fan, but can't seem to pull them off either. I may try their wedges soon! I'm your newest follower. :)

  22. Love your post! I'm jealous of your 70 degree weather...how nice!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Any song by Lady Antebellum just relaxes me. I love them! I thought the same thing about TOMS until I saw they sold wedges. They look much better and are so comfy!

    ReplyDelete
  24. So sad about the TOMS! I love them!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I can't do Toms either. I just don't love the way they look. Of course, I'm like 20 years your senior and an old fuddy duddy with no fashion sense, but it did make me feel better to read your Toms conundrum.

    In and Out Burger? Now that I can do!

  26. I'm SO jealous of that 70F degree weather you're having. Girl, it's still pushing 90-95F here in TX. Bummer, I know.
