Ups and Downs

See the awesome yard?!?!?!
     For whatever reason, I want to title this post "HI!!!"  But since that was essentially the title of my last blog post, I couldn't.  sad face :(   
     Anyway, life is pretty great right now.  Today was the start of my third week of work.  The Fiance and I had date night Saturday night and Sunday morning we went to the beach for a couple of hours.  Unfortunately, this weekend was not all great.  My mom called me Friday night to tell me that my cat at home had had another seizure and that she was pretty bad.  While I was on the phone with her, Charcoal (the kitty) made the saddest most painful meows I've ever heard.  My mom stayed up with my kitty all night until she died at around 2 am.  I wish I had been there.  It's been a tough few days for my family.  Sorry guys, I didn't mean for this to be such a downer. . . 
More awesome yard while gazing lovingly at The Fiance :)
    On a happy note I absolutely love our new house.  We have this amazing and huge backyard that just goes on and on and on.  Granted, at this point its so big because construction on this subdivision stopped when the economy tanked, but nonetheless, I love it.  The picture to the left really shows how large our yard is.  In case your curious, the reason my legs are cut off in the picture is that The Fiance thought it would be fun to systematically cut off parts of me with the camera.  So while this picture has all but my lower legs, I have others that have my whole body but only parts of my face.  True love, yes?
     Now on to today's outfit.  You might remember this skirt from this post.  For a while I had a mental block as to what to wear this green tweed skirt with.  I couldn't think of anything other than black to pair it with.  But THEN I was standing in my closet last night figuring out what to wear today and it occurred to me to grab the skirt and see if it would work with this sweater.  Lo and Behold, the greens and tans of the skirt worked perfectly with the dusty rose sweater.  
     So yea, life has been up and down.  Lots of ups like the new house, the new job and shopping along with some cute outfits.  But some downs too.  Oh well, such is life I suppose.  Hope your week started well.
