Weekend in Michigan

I spent this past weekend in Michigan and upper Ohio. My family used to live there when I was younger and it was great to get back and see so many familiar sights. We went up to see a Detroit Tigers game for my brothers birthday and ended up getting to do some other things as well. One of my favorite places to go back to is Lake Erie. I absolutely love walking on the pier and taking in the sights, the landscape, and the animals. I absolutely loved it and I had a great time!

Since we were going to be on the water and there would be a breeze, I decided that it was time to take out my new romper for the first time. This is my first romper and I was worried about how practical it would be, but it was so comfortable. It was comfortable enough for the drive up and was practical enough to be able to enjoy the lake and the baseball game. I kept the rest of the outfit simple with a sweater, minimal jewelry, and flip-flops for walking on the sand.

I was an amazing weekend and I had a great time. I love going back to visit. I took a ton of pictures and I can hopefully post some of those soon.

Hello! I hope that everyone had an excellent Monday! These photos were taken at a bonfire that I went to Saturday night! It was such a good time and the weather was perfect. It was a perfect evening of conversation and s'mores. I also had fun playing with their dog, so cute! It was an excellent evening and I evening managed to escape bug-bite free!

In other news...I finally found a job. It is only part time, but it is going to get me the hours I need for my internship. I have had to spend the weekend searching for clothes that fit in the dress code! I picked up some great pieces that I can incorporate into what I already own to create some business casual looks. It has really been a challenge falling back into a dress code routine. After twelve years of private school I was really getting used to wearing whatever I wanted. It is definitely something that I am going to have to get used to again! I am just so thankful that I finally have a job now! I worked today and it was great...but it will be even better when I get that paycheck!
Have a great day!

Tea Party

I am now convinced that tea tastes better when it comes straight from a fancy cup. It's true. Today I went to a birthday tea party and it was such a great time. I ate my first cucumber sandwich..and then my second, third, fourth, and so on. They are amazing. I have had the recipe saved for a while now but have never made them, I am now planning on making them very soon! I also had some delicious tea, punch, and pastries. It was such a great time with some great friends. I borrowed a friends gloves while I was there and I am also convinced that I need a pair now as well. I felt so lady-like with my tea, pearls, and gloves. It was an splendid day spent with some amazing friends!

Picnic In The Park

Today I went on a picnic in one of our local parks with some friends. We picked up some sparkling grape juice and some fruit salad, then swung by a local deli for chips and sandwiches. We all had a really great time. The weather was perfect and it was so beautiful outside today! I just threw on some shorts and a blouse for a casual outfit that would also keep me cool in the heat. I finished the day off with a swim and a cookout with my family. It has been such a perfect summer day! Picnics are definitely going to be a weekly tradition for me this summer!

Summer Time Adventures

These past few days have been full of summertime fun and adventures. Yesterday, me and some friends took off to Kings Island. I didn't come back with any photos, but instead returned with quite a sunburn. I had so much fun and it was good to get away. Today was spent with my family. We went and played tennis in the park, went out for pizza, and then went back to the park for a walk and some general foolishness. I had such a great time. Tomorrow I am planning on going swimming. I am loving this summer weather! What are some of your favorite summertime activities?
