{What I Wore} Let Them Know...N O P E!

Hey Delights!

I had a very productive day yesterday, which started off visiting the offices of Care.org, an organization that does amazing work around the world with a focus on improving the lives of women and girls. I also met with one of my fab blogger boos to interview her for The Curvacast. So stay tuned for that...it's GOOODDD!

I wore my new favorite piece, this bad ass N O P E. Not today sweatshirt (which is on major sale today) and I am still living in my Universal Standard distressed jeans. I am standing in front of The National Veterans Art Museum's exhibition Above & Beyond at the Harold Washington Library.

{Life} My Word of the Year

Hey Delights!

As I mentioned here, my word of the year found me and it was born out of ending 2017 and starting 2018 sick.

Obviously being sick always sucks but something really beautiful came out of me not being able to talk for a week and countless nights of coughing fit interrupted sleep. When I was awake, I was insanely determined to not let being sick stop me from getting ish done.

And so in the midst of hours at my desk, in between sips of tea & orange juice, sucking on cough drops, cranking away at my to do lists, my word of the year just came to me.
This picture was actually taken on a day I was supposed to run a 5K but ended up limping it because my legs were just not having it that day. I was pretty much one of the last people to finish & they had basically packed everything up when I did but not finishing was never an option for me.

You Need One of These in Your {Life}


Hey Delights!

As I mentioned in my January To Do post, we spent the end of 2017 on a crazy road trip from Chicago to Mississippi to Minnesota back to Chicago then back to Minnesota where we got caught up in bad weather.  So we ended up spending a day relaxing and doing a little shopping at the Mall of America before heading back to Chicago. And on New Years Eve, we were back on the road again to drop our wee one off in Mississippi.

Wheww...it was definitely an adventure, with lots of ups and downs, like me getting sick along the way but we made it happen and I loved it and I really mean it when I say I would totally do it again.

During our last stop at the Mall of America, I randomly picked up this awesome double walled stainless steel bottle and it has already made my list of must have purchases for 2018. I have wanted one forever and finally grabbed one so that I could have a hot drink with me at all times during this insane, frigidness that has settled in over the past week or so.

This sounds dramatic but it has been LIFE CHANGING. Like seriously. Most of them keep drinks cold for 24 hours & hot for 12 hours and I don't know how I have survived all these years without one.

I got mine from Marshalls, this one looks exactly like it.  And this one comes in lots of different colors and has a lot of great reviews, so I might have to add one of these to my new collection. There are hundreds of possible options but here are a few that I like.
