With just a couple of weeks left until my annual summer trip to Massachusetts, I realized I was in short supply of, well, shorts. Thus, while Brian was away on a business trip yesterday, I dedicated my evening to finding at least one pair that I loved. Since I've tried on everything at Target already, I knew I needed to start elsewhere—and LOFT is where I ended up.
You may remember that last week Karen and I had a craft night. Though we weren't entirely sure what to make, Karen went to the store and grabbed anything and everything crafty that looked interesting (and potentially could work for some of the DIYs we were pondering). It was a hodge podge of crafty goodness, and I'm happy to say that we made several of the crafts we had considered, plus a few other random things.
Here are some photos of our night...
Today is Father's Day, which means it's a day to celebrate and cherish the men who play fatherly roles in our lives—whether it's our own dad, our grandfather, the father of our children, or a father-like figure, today is the day to honor the commitment they've made to family and to helping us become the women we are today.
I know that not everyone has a great relationship with their dad (and that for some of you, your dad isn't around at all), so for those of you who that applies to, I hope that you'll find ways to lift up and encourage the father-like men in your life who are there for you. They'll appreciate it so much!
What are your Father's Day plans? How will you be honoring the fatherly and father-like men in your life?
P.S. I love you, dad! I'm so thankful for you and for all of the memories we have. Can't wait to see you in just a couple of weeks! Know that I miss you and love you a ton!

It's no secret that I have a thing for J.Crew—and that makes J.Crew factory my best friend. For a major discount, I can get the styles I love at a price that fits into my budget, and that makes this girl a happy girl. That being said, today is a good day if for no other reason than the fact that J.Crew Factory is offering 30% off everything with the code SPREE until tomorrow at midnight.
Here are a twelve things I wouldn't hate adding to my wardrobe (prices listed are before applying the discount)...
