I can’t be the only one who swoons over Free People knowing they totally can’t afford it, right? I was actually pretty disappointed the Nordstrom Rack that recently opened near me didn’t have much available, so when Paul gave me this gorgeous sweater (which he picked out on his own!), I was pretty ecstatic..
Sweater: Free People // Necklace: Ebay // Boots: Target
Also, if you ever look at their catalog (or website), you’ve probably noticed that all the girls are basically dancing around in fields (yet somehow manage to look gorgeous, and not ridiculous). Figured I’d give it a go, I think I nailed it…
An awesome Indiana police officer is making sure that no one gets left behind — not even stuffed members of the family. Last Saturday, Jason Cullum of the Evansville Police Department spied a teddy bear on the interstate on his way to work. But instead of driving by, he stopped traffic to pick it up, according to Good Morning America. How sweet is that? Check out the full story here.
If any of you follow college football, you’ve probably heard about OSU (my alma mater) and this awesome 24 game winning streak we were on before the game yesterday. When I first got to Ohio State, I really didn’t understand the obsession they have with football, after going to a few games, I totally got it. When you’re there, it’s more than just a game, it’s the entire experience of so many people coming together. Even though we lost last night, the experience of being at the game was pretty incredible, so I just thought I’d share a few photos..
Paul made a sign (well, he tried)..
Yesterday also marked one year of dating for Paul and I
Losing an animal is probably one of every pet owners worst fears. I’m not sure how many would turn to the internet, but one dog owner in Houston did, asking Redditors in the area to keep an eye out for her missing pup. The plea for help was seen by over 40,000 people and would you believe it – it worked! Just one day later, she was reunited with Jack. Check out the full story here.
Oh Dear Creatures, how I love thee. Found this dress at a local boutique and just couldn’t pass it up, it was perfect for Thanksgiving dinner last week (and it twirls!). Also, I might be mildly obsesses with this belt..
Today’s story is about a random act of kindness. At a restaurant in Virginia, a customer overheard employees talking about how a busboy there, who had worked hard to save money for an iPad for school was extremely upset at the fact that his mother had accidentally thrown it in a fire pit. The customer payed his check, but about an hour later, he came back! He returned with a $360 Best Buy gift card, and instructed the waitress to give it to the busboy. Read the full, amazing story here.
This story actually reminds me of something that happened to me about two years ago when I was working at a restaurant. It was a Sunday evening, and business was pretty slow, I had a table of 3 people, who had been hanging out and drinking for a little while. I was in the back doing side work and when I came out to check on them they were gone, like, completely gone. For those of you who don’t work in the service industry, a lot of times when this happens, the money comes out of our pockets. Their tab was $60, which was basically all I had made for the day, meaning I would’ve walked out after working with nothing. One of the customers must have overheard me as I was telling the story to a coworker and he ended up paying the tab. I was so shocked I ended up bursting into tears. The man (who looked about my age), told me that he did it so I wouldn’t cry, and that he remembered when $60 could’ve made, or ruined his day. I promised him that when I had a chance, I would pay it forward just as he had
