the week in photos.

this week has been insane.

as I’ve mentioned a couple times previously, [J] & I are hosting a charity event for multiple sclerosis. and tonight is the night. we’ve been prepping for months & it’s finally really here. this week has been spent on the “finishing touches” + my outfit [of course].

let’s quickly recap… [my mom is on her way from iowa. & should be here any minute! woo hoo!]

I now have my own car. for the first time since 2010 [when I sold my car to move to new york]. and this week I had to put gas in my own car. OUCH! I’ve obviously been well aware of rising gas prices, but my bank account wasn’t. until now…

[thank goodness for COSTCO & their $4.05 gas or I’d be paying $4.25]

also on the car subject, I/my father broke the car remote [the ever-so convenient unlock, lock remote]. I mean WHO USES A KEY TO UNLOCK A CAR THESE DAYS? [sarcasm, kind of]. well my handy & practical gift-giving boyfriend gifted me ..

[a BRAND NEW car remote. & he programmed it. he’s a keeper!].

we have officially welcomed fall in the midwest. my favorite time of year. I love boots, sweatshirts, scarves, football …all of it. so yesterday, I comfortably dressed for the weather.

[& snapped a picture while shopping @ Kohl’s …seriously!]

[then I indulged in fall beer ..Sam Adam’s Harvest Pumpkin Ale].

[& chili for dinner!!]

the “finishing touches” for the event consisted of …

[a bright orange no-chip manicure].

[finishing all the centerpiece labels].

and what I’m most excited about

[the candy bar].

I can’t wait to share with all of you [who can’t attend] pictures of the event. I’ll be snapping away all night long! until then ..

everyone enjoy your fall weekend :)
