Compass by Lady Antebellum

In my last post I mentioned that we may be moving, and the news is true! On May 10th we get our keys to a house that is just about a mile down the road from our current place. It has more square feet, a two car garage, and a fenced in yard for Bentley. We really have enjoyed our townhouse but we are outgrowing it and looking forward to being in a single family home. We have signed a two year lease which will finish out our time here for residency. The other day Hubby, Bentley, and I went for a run and ended up at the new house, sat on the front steps, looked in the window, and saw that the For Rent sign in the front yard has a Rented sign on it, and we are all very excited! Its a great neighborhood, one of the top 5 safest cities in Washington, and an easy commute for both of us. So the move will be starting soon, I need to convince myself to start packing, because we will be doing most of it ourselves, with the help of some friends and a uhaul truck. I'll share a little along the way!

Navy and white stripes always remind me of spring and the whole nautical theme that comes out in stores about this time of year. I paired it with grey boots and a grey/silver necklace and earrings combo to keep it simple on a normal running errands type of day. I did just about the same thing a few days later when the weather was even nicer so I rolled up my jeans and added flip flops!

Drink To That All Night by Jerrod Niemann

I never used to talk about the weather very much. Now I talk about it all the time due to working at a golf course. Yesterday it was 70 degrees and sunny! After work I took Bentley for a run, checked out the neighborhood of a house we might move into, did dishes, laundry, and a regular clean up of the house, made potato salad and went to one of our friend's houses for a birthday cookout. The weather really gave me the motivation to get stuff done yesterday. I love those kind of days. In other news we may be moving out of our townhouse into a house with a fenced in backyard and garage... details to come!

There seem to have been a lot of birthdays lately. Last night was a birthday cookout, the weekend before was a surprise birthday dinner, and one of my best friends turned another year older this week. This outfit was what I wore to the surprise birthday dinner. We went to a restaurant in downtown Tacoma that has the best view of the city as well as awesome food. I like to be dressy casual for most events with friends and thought this one fit the bill.

Mayberry by Rascal Flatts

I swear everytime I go to write a blog post, Bentley needs more of my attention. He sees me typing on my laptop and gets up from his lounging spot to have me throw a ball for him. So I write a little, throw the ball, write a little more. But now he's entertained with a water bottle to chew on, so I can get back to writing this blog post. Anyway, I'm glad its finally spring time. I'm also glad to take on some pacific northwest rainy days vs snowy days back home. I planted some primrose flowers which love this current weather we're having and whenever its sunny I like to take Bentley out for walks or to the park. When the weather gets just a bit warmer Hubby and I are planning to go camping! We got a tent, sleeping bag, air mattress (camping comfortably), backpacks, and water bottles for our upcoming adventures of camping and hiking. There are some awesome places around here to explore.

Shirt: Bought on vacation in St. Thomas / Cami: Aeropostale / Jeans: American Eagle / Boots: Steve Madden / Earrings: American Eagle

I wore this outfit for St. Patrick's Day weekend. I bought this shirt in St. Thomas when it cooled down one night and I was cold after a day of sunning on the beach. Tough life in the caribbean. Anyway, the horseshoe says Feelin Lucky, which is cute and fitting for St. Patrick's Day.
