Spring Fling

While now my reality is covered with snow, the dream of spring whispers in my ear. I find myself listening to it more and more. Looking forward. Days filled with sunshine, flowers, chirping birds and ponytails.









My wish list grows longer with every pound I shed. I'm down 7 1/2 with about 10 to go. I'm looking forward to rewarding myself with these things that will enhance the new me. (from garnet hill, banana republic, anthropologie, tommy hilfiger, boden, and more anthropologie)

  3. Yes! I can feel the flip flops on my feet now. I'm a summer kind of gal. Love the winter and all but not all the clothes that come with it!

  4. For those of you on a budget - Old Navy has a lovely knock-off of the first dress for around $30.00.

  6. Good for you! 7.5 pounds is a lot! I just tried on new flip-flops this afternoon and it felt good (weird, but good) after a whole winter of thick socks and clogs and running shoes. Come on spring!

  10. Very off topic: did you create your own header? It's absolutely beautiful and I'd like something similar for my own blog. If you didn't create it perhaps you could point me in the direction of who did...? Thank you in advance.

  22. I am dreaming of spring, too....as it's snowing while I write this.

    Cute outifts...I love anthropologie. Being a million months pregnant, and then months to lose the 45 pounds I've gained thus far, it's going to be a looong time before I can fit into the clothes I'd like to fit into. When I see pre-pregnancy photos of myself, it's hard to believe I'll ever be that size again....or even be able to see my toes!

    Congrats on your weight loss :)
