My Sniffly Weekend Snapshots :)

Well, hello folks :)  I've been feeling a little under the weather as of late.  So, I've been trying to take it easy and chase away my sniffles.  In Delaware we went from 40 degree weather to almost 90 degree weather within a day or two and like clockwork, the sniffles came, the sore throat and the cough. I spent Friday home from work and watched a Documentary called "Happiness" and old classic comedies like "Tommy Boy" and "Uncle Buck".  The couch was my throne that day- with short trips to the mailbox and the kitchen for some warm tea.  Now, I am moving around and talking much better (I had all but lost my voice) and hoping to feel a lot better by the end of the week! So sorry if I have not commented on some of your blogs in a while, I will be sure to get myself up and running soon! :) Here are some snapshots of my weekend.
The mirror in Anthropologie :)
Awesome flower applique Clutch I found in Anthro.
Desserts with my family to celebrate my husband Daniel's graduation from his Electrician's apprenticeship!
A preview of some of my work from the "Fun-A-Day" project.  My theme is 30 days of insects.


My Sunday afternoon outfit, I was really feeling the flower appliques!

Cherry and Lavender <3

I was really lucky to find this amazing Ryu cardigan on sale at a local boutique for little over 20 dollars.  I love the 3D details, and found it went perfectly with my ASOS floral dress.  I wish I had taken a photo of the back- it features a heart cut out!  These shoes are also one of my favorites.  Little strawberry sandals from Irregular Choice- found during a spring sale on ModCloth.
I hope you enjoyed the snapshots from my weekend.  *Grabs a tissue* hope you are all having a wonderful Monday! :)
xo,
Alyssa

  1. Oh no my dear, feel better! Drastic changes in weather like that always bring on the tissues I suppose. Your weekend looks delightful-congrats to your brother! That's a great accomplishment :)
    I love both of your outfits here-the yellow jeans fit your style so well and seem perfect for a bit of shopping. I've always wanted to visit an Anthro store! I really love that red cardigan too. It plays off the colors in your dress so nicely and you look sweet as pie, as always.

    1. Hey Katie, thank you so much!! It was actually my husband's graduation from his apprenticeship, but thank you so so much for the congrats! I was really proud of him, he's worked through four years of hard work and weekly schooling for this! Anthropologie is such a beautiful store but I can only afford sale stuff, haha! I mainly just love going in there for inspiration and eye candy. Thank you so much for your sweet and thoughtful comments :)

  2. Cherry and lavender, how cuuute are those two colors together! I really love the details in your cardigan.

    Your project a day looks like it's coming along just swimmingly. I love insects, too, so I can't wait to see the final result of all the things you've made! :D

    And oh goodness, I hope that you get well soon. The weather just snaps sometimes, doesn't it? Do you have allergies, or was it just the shift in weather that made you get sick? Either way, sore throats are no fun at all so here's to hoping you get well quickly!

    1. Thank you Ali :) Sadly for me, I think it was/is a cyclone of seasonal allergies meets a cold, haha. A lot of the girls at work have been sick so I am fairly certain I caught something there...thank you for your well wishes :) I am trying to be very gentle and loving on my system so hopefully I'll be back to my best, soon!

  21. I'm glad you're feeling better! Sometimes a day (or two) on the couch watching movies is the best medicine!
