Outfit details: Dress: No Rest For Bridget, Camera Bag c/o JoTotes, Shoes: F21

Lately I've been:

Trying new recipes from my Granny's cook book.
Listening to old school Yellowcard songs.
Feeling anxious for beach days (almost here!).
Getting excited to release new JAA products.
Teaching Penny a new trick ("be cute").
Feeling the pressure to be the best I can be.
Missing home (officially visiting in June!).
Learning how to stand up for my business.
Looking forward to heading to San Fran over Easter.
Feeling closer and closer to my blog friends.

What have you been doing lately?


  1. Settling up in my new apartment! FYI I took your advise and moved! -.-

    I'm so happy, but I'm going crazy with settling in my new apartment, school, blogging and brainstorming to open my store again... Hectic month! But loving it! :)

  2. You're so pretty :)

    Lately I've been preparing to move out of my apartment, thinking about my current job and relocating to Austin (eek!) and getting ready for my 25th bday!

  3. your so beautiful! what a lovely summer look and your legs are amazing! :P sincerely, totally-envious-me-who wants your legs in the most non-stalker way ever!

    1. You made me laugh, thank you!

  4. Waking up early to read. Sounds crazy, but it's such a wonderful start to my day!

  5. such a cute outfit and bag! Loving the old school Yellowcard songs!

  6. You are so beautiful. Love your style! :)

  7. "Learning how to stand up for my business." I love that! I've been working on that too. :)

  8. i love penny's new trick.
    erika, the vine stalker.

  9. also. outfit post! YAY!

  10. Lately I've been telling myself how much I need to take the time to comment, because if I spend oodles of time reading what someone says/does, the least I can do is let them know I'm here. Right? :)

    So Hi! I love your blog and your work.


  11. They say don't wear brown with black but you've totally proved it wrong! :)

  12. I like this spin on what at first appears to be an outfit post. Usually I don't open those types of posts from my reader because I'm much more interested in how bloggers feel, what they're learning, pondering, etc than what clothes they own. (Admittedly, I feel very alone in this preference sometimes.) This is the best of both worlds, and you look adorable too! ^^

  13. Lately? I've been up tooooo... taking care of my son and making the most of the time I have left on maternity leave. You're lucky you get to enjoy beach time (soon), we don't even have beaches here... at least none that are worth calling "beach".

    love, moon

  14. LOVE those shoes! I'm with you on being anxious for beach days! Summer is so close! :)

    You should share one of those recipes! I've been reading more books, fewer blogs.

  16. I've been applying to craft shows, making lots of jewelry, and blogging! Love the color of that bag :-)


  17. you look GORGE in this dress! And I love Penny's new trick! Finn can learn so many tricks but Gordita is pretty much the best at just lookin' cute. And fat :).

  18. I'm so excited you get to take a trip home! I will also be going to MI (home) in June for a wedding. I'm excited but sad the lakes aren't quite warm enough yet to swim in. I may do it anyhow, we'll see how bold I'm feeling.


Thanks for the comment! I read them all and reply when I can. Please be sure your blogger account is linked to your e-mail so I can do so! (Tutorial on how to do that here: http://tinyurl.com/c6gh9fk) xo JA
