Neon I’ve Missed You

Last summer I went on a huge neon kick and picked up tons of pieces in highlighter yellow.  I absolutely love it!  But alas, I couldn't have both the awesome red hair and the neon with it, so I've gone months without wearing one of my favorite colors. Now that my hair is back to my natural color, that means I can wear it again.  Oh neon, I've missed you! On a totally unrelated note, this entire week I've had to wear flats and I'm so not used to it.  I had broken my foot a few years ago and noticed this week after an intense Crossfit session it was starting to bother me in the same exact place.  For fear I may have re-fractured it, I figured it best I stay off of it and stick to flats for the next week or so to allow it to get back to normal.  I miss my heels though!

Surviving Ikea

Surviving Ikea What I'm Wearing // TOPSHOP Parka // VICTORIA'S SECRET Jeggings // H&M Tee // CORNELIA GUEST Bag // MIA Boots // NYC STREET VENDOR Beanie After the snowstorm this past weekend, Jim and I spent the entire day on Saturday doing nothing and enjoying the snow day. We actually watched around 6 back to back episodes of Shark Tank. OMG I totally love that show now. Sunday we were back to business on operation Clean House, so it meant we had to do a run to IKEA. Each time we go to IKEA, we know our marriage is meant to last forever because we always survive the trip. We have our arguments and spats while there, but we've learned to instantly identify when it's "Ikea Fever" and scale it back a bit. We persevered, and made it home not only with a new cabinet for our kitchen but also a new rug for our living room and a few other items. Bringing our IKEA goods out of our car and up the stairs into our apartment was a good test of my recent Crossfit training. There was several larger items that were over 50 pounds that I carried up the stairs with no issues at all. In the past, it would have been a major ordeal getting all that stuff into the apartment! This time around it was almost easy. Speaking of Crossfit, I wanted to mention really quick how much I totally love these new Victoria's Secret Jeggings. Since I started Crossfit none of my pants fit because although my waist is much smaller, my quads are now huge. After searching high and low on the internet for the best types of jeans for athletic builds, the common answer was anything with stretch, so I invested in a few pairs of these mid-rise jeggings and don't know why I ever wore normal jeans. They are so comfortable and look the same as skinny jeans. This post is getting really random. Let's keep on this roll. I think this is the first debut of my new hair color on the blog.

I know it's taken me long enough, but here's number 26 of my summer 30 for 30 challenge. I was originally planning on sucking it up and taking all the photos for my remaining four outfits this weekend, but then Irene ruined those plans. Damn you Irene!  

A Tree No Longer Grows in Brooklyn

I noticed while putting this post together that all of a sudden, the tree is gone. This spot is my go to spot for quick photos, and there was always a tree in the background. Now there's just a stub. I asked my husband about it and he said some city sanitation workers had come by earlier in the week and they took it down, citing something about it being dead and "about to fall and kill someone". Guess it was a zombie tree. Jokes aside, I was tremendously sad by this because just the week prior, I had spotted a nest full of baby birds inside a hole in the tree. All I can think about now is if those baby birds are okay and if the sanitation workers even noticed they were in there. My husband being the sweetheart he is tried to assure me the mother bird probably took her babies to safety, but I don't know. Sad. Day Eighteen 2 Day Eighteen 3 Day Eighteen 4

I’d Forget My Head If It Wasn’t Attached

I've been quite forgetful the past week. First I totally forgot I had left these jeans at the local dry cleaners to be altered. When I remembered, I was like "Yay! Another option!" I had totally forgotten I had included these when I originally picked my 30 items. Then when putting together my post for today I noticed I totally skipped over this day 11 post, and went straight to posting Day 12. Whoops! I guess I need to get more sleep or something.
