manic monday.

I hope you all had an amazing weekend.

[J] & I took a road trip to des moines, IA. the trip was planned on a whim. and a nice little escape. until our drive back to chicago on saturday night ..5 hours in a “wintery mix” [aka: freezing rain & snow]. watching cars drive right into the ditch does nothing for my heart rate ..but thanks to [J]’s driving, we arrived safely.

on sunday, [J]’s brother gifted us round two of our christmas present – the installation of our remote start. [if you live in cold temps, these are invaluable!]. I can now start the car from the comfort of my nice warm bed. if I wanted to. while his brother was hard at work, we were enjoying #SundayFunday. someone’s gotta do it.

and last but not least, a quick shout out to kirsten @ {objets d’envy}. the first piece of jewlery [J] ever got me was from her. and I’ve been in love since. so, I got my mom’s christmas present from her. when I received the sparkle in the mail, I contemplated keeping one of the two pieces. but guilt set in. so she got both!

happy manic monday.
