happenings April 6-13, 2014

All the snow is ALMOST GONE! After the veritable blizzard we had about a week ago, I think this part of the Midwest is finally getting the fact that winter is SO over. There have been a few rainy days and a few gorgeous days, and, thankfully, no more snowy days. Come on, spring!

I started packing to move this week. I just moved this past November, and now the house I'm renting has sold (it was on the market), so I have to up and move just like that BOOM at the literal WORST TIME EVER to move when you live in Door County. guys! The house I'm moving into is SO perfect. It was FATE that I happened to look on craigslist when I did because I was the first person to inquire about the post, look at it, and make an offer. I am so lucky. I'll be able to ride my bike to work, into town, and to the beach! I signed the paperwork yesterday so it's official! I'm so excited. However, from now until May 15th I'll be in that weird limbo phase where some of my crap is in boxes, at the wrong house, lost forever, ect. You know. Ugh. But it will all be worth it in about a month. I can't wait!

I've been bringing home home lots of great thrift finds lately. My local thrift store has been having mad sales because they're closing for renovations and such, so I've stopped a few times this week. There is only ONE thrift store in my area (It's Door County, people. It's awesome 'cause there's no big box stores up here, but there also aren't a lot of other things that would be thrift stores. Well, except for this little tiny one I'm talking about.) So I made sure to take advantage of the only sale at the only thrift store in my area, and I scored! I bought some great velvet pieces, a bolo tie (I am obsessed with bolo ties), some pretty maxi skirts, and a cool Hard Rock Cafe tee.

Here are some other things I've been doing this week...

Scrolling through every single page of Coconut, Lemon, and Lime. And stalking all over her Instagram, too. She wears white like I wear black and is the absolute queen of wonderfully beachy flatlays.

I know what you mean about being so over winter... this was one that lasted much too long, I am so looking forward to just going out with a hoodie or little sweater...

Good luck with the move, I will be doing that soon enough too :)

if there's anything good about moving, it's that it forces you to declutter and get rid of sutff that's been piling up... so you can decorate your new place with awesome thrifting finds!

I firmly believe in serindipity and it sounds like you hit the jackpot with your new place - good luck with the move!

Those things on the snapshot looks so pretty and original:) By the way I have never been to thrift stores, because here in my city we don't have such stores at all:)
Wish you a great week ahead!
