I have a bit of an obsession with long sleeve dresses, the more billowy the sleeve the better. I think it stems from my love of 70s fashion where my heart definitely beats faster for wide-leg bells and anything given the term “floaty”.  Add in one of the most romantic colors that exists and you have yourself the perfect little Anniversary dress. I think Blush is up there as one of my favorite colors. I’m pretty sure it was Baby’s dress in Dirty Dancing that started the Blush love affair.  The color featured predominantly in my wedding (shameless plug as there are officially two more days left in my Anniversary month, and I have to make them count!) And I have plans to incorporate the color into our home as we slowly start to remodel. OK, maybe I’m a tad obsessed. Whatever, it’s pretty!

We had a quiet Anniversary this year, still trying to pinch a few pennies after the France trip. The traditional gift for four years is flowers or fruit, so we bought each other fruit smoothies at Wegman’s in the morning on our grocery run. (Hey, sometimes it’s the little things….and they are quite delicious!)  And we went a little wild and crazy, trying Pho for the first time at a new little restaurant that has an amazing craft beer menu. We go kinda nuts for that sorta thing. Oh and of course I’m sure you noticed the perfect leather jacket is making another appearance. You can count on seeing it for a very, very long time. So far it’s the best money spent ever. Besides those smoothies.

    LOVE the leather jacket! I wish I could easily incorporate one into my boring wardrobe. Can you just be my stylist? Also, did you like pho?! You’ve probably noticed I’m obsessed. 🙂

      Thanks! You totally can. I will totally be your stylist! I’m actually thinking of working with Betsy and her patients that go through weight loss surgery. A big missing piece is how hard it is to find clothes as you go through the weight loss process.

      I loved the Pho..phosho, haha! I just couldn’t finish it all, but I looked around and everyone else had cleaned their bowls out! So I kept chugging through. I was proud. I even used the chopstix. 🙂

        You are becoming so cosmopolitan these days! Love it! 🙂 That is such a great idea and I’m sure Betsy’s patients would really appreciate it. I really wished we lived a lot closer! We could go crazy with photography and food and wine! And I will be your travel buddy back to Paris if Cody wants to work on the kitchen! HAHA! We just might have to meet my long lost family members first (a story for another time).
