Tuesday Treasure Trove

Tuesday Treasure Trove: this week's round-up of read-worthy links


Things of Note:

The results of the wedding wear poll last week were resoundingly in favor of Look #2. So that’s what I ended up wearing to the wedding on Saturday. Sadly, due to rushed prep time (our hotel room wasn’t ready until 5:15 – the wedding was at a different location at 6), there wasn’t time to snap too many photos, and there definitely wasn’t time to check that they turned out. And it turns out every single pic Ian took of me in that outfit came out blurry. But I wanted to at least give you guys an idea of how it turned out in real life, so here’s the comparison:


Also, while we were in Houston for the wedding, we also made a few fun stops. I got to meet up with Whitney for the first time in real life, which was a lot of fun. 🙂 I’m trying to convince her to come visit Austin (she’s never been!) so she’ll fall in love with it and want to move here and hang out with me, haha. Only half joking. This is us after our brunch date:

We also got to stop by the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, which was HUGE. Like, spread amongst multiple buildings with an underground tunnel that connects them huge. We didn’t have a whole lot of time, since we had to hit the road and be back in Austin to pick up Sienna from doggie day camp, but we still saw part of it. There’s some cool stuff there.

Other than that, this week is work as normal for me. Ian’s on late shift, which means I have free evenings to fill all week. So far that has meant diving into Downton Abbey season 1 and lots of reading. I also probably need to do some cleaning around the house, particularly my closet/our bedroom. Clothes explosion, you guys. I swear I can’t keep clothes properly hung up/put away for more than a day or two.

How’s your week going?
