Well guys it's official. It's dark when I leave to go to work and dark when I get home. So any outfit post now must be taken in my kitchen. Hope you all don't mind.

I am lucky because I'm wearing a gorgeous floral scarf that I received in the Why Girls Are Weird blog scarf swap from Coffee at Nordstrom blogger Crystal.  (p.s. Crystal I totally thought you lived in Seattle because coffee + nordstrom is such a Seattle thing!)

my good things in life this week:

- my week flew by! I love that. Last week was like the l o n g e s t week ever but this week Thursday felt like Tuesday, which is one of my favorite feelings.

- planning to squeeze in a trip to Disneyland with my cousin during a business trip next week! (also-- business trip-- my first one-- a little scared. any tips for me? I have to wear-GASP- business casual.)

-  my dog in a costume. look closely-- he's helping me blog while dressed as a dinosaur. (win?)

- laughing at dinner just now. my stomach hurts from sharing stories of married life with two other couples.

- free lunch at work. Turns out I'm still like a starving college student and free lunch makes me really excited.

Also, I am feeling SO blessed by the blog community lately. I feel like I read some blog posts from people and the words are exactly what I need to hear at that moment. I am inspired by the beauty of what people share and have been challenged to share a little bit more of what goes on in my life as well.

Blog posts I loved this week:

>> her [take heart blog]

>> my writing style [lee la la]

>> blogging from the heart [dot in the city]

what did you guys like this week? what kept you going? was it photos of dogs in costumes?
xo, erika
