I Can't Believe It's Only Tuesday!

Seriously though...it feels like it should be Thursday at least.

Necklace - local store; Cardigan - Lucky Brand; Tank - Old Navy; Boots - Gianni Bini

This outfit is from this weekend. I wore it out to dinner and dessert with my boyfriend and his parents. For dessert we went to The Chocolate Lounge - which is a must-visit if you ever come to Asheville! Definitely one of my favorite places in the city. So many unique and yummy things and anything chocolate you can imagine. I've never gotten anything I didn't like there - including the maple/brown sugar/bacon ice cream I got this weekend. Yes, ice cream with bacon. My boyfriend kept saying how gross it sounded, but he tried it and loved it!

Sorry about the extreme close-up/brightness here. I told my boyfriend to get a shot of the details on the cardigan and my necklace...but he needs to work on his photography skills.

So, today I started my sewing class! It was fun. But I felt a little left behind. It's a beginner's class but everyone else seemed to have a little bit of experience. (It took me forever just to finally get the machine threaded correctly.) The woman I shared a table with was just as inexperienced so we laughed it off and tried to figure things out together. I actually got a sewing machine for Christmas that I haven't taken out of the box because I had no idea how to use it. My teacher said we could bring our own to class if we wanted, so I'm excited about learning on my own machine! We're supposed to make pillow cases next week. Perhaps I will share a photo if they don't turn out too terribly. I'm so excited about picking out fabric though!

Oh, also I got a haircut today...which I will show you soon!

I'm curious about domain-buying. How to go about it, the cost, pros/cons, etc. Those of you who have purchased your domains, I'd love your insight/advice. And feel free to send me an e-mail if you don't want to share all that info in comment form.

I'm so jealous of people who take sewing classes! My community college is FINALLY offering one, but it's only 3 hours and only one time! But I'll take what I can get I guess. Anyway, wanted to let you know I featured this look from your weardrobe on my blog! Hope that is alright :)

Love the cardigan and boots!
Bacon and ice cream definitely sound like a weird combo but I would still try it!

I know what you mean. I have one too, but am intimidated about using it. I love your cardigan and can't wait to see your pillow case.
