It feels so good to be posting on here again! I only took about a week off, but that seems like forever in blog years! I want to apologize for the unexpected break I took. I had originally planned to have scheduled posts for last week, but life got crazy (as usual!) and I never got around to creating those posts. Last Tuesday, I had a surgery to get my wisdom teeth out, which was crazy! It was the first time I ever got anesthesia, and I loved it! I felt totally conscious but couldn't stop laughing. I posted on snapchat while "under the influence" and it was hilarious to go back and watch my story when I was normal again. I actually have begun to post more blog type stuff on my snapchat, I've been reading up on how to have an engaging snapchat story... as ridiculous as that sounds! If you want to add me on snapchat, my username is Obvibecca! I'll be adding my snapcode to the sidebar soon. Also, have you seen Jeff Mindell's tips for an engaging snapchat story? He is awesome and I highly recommend watching the video if you're interested in improving your snapchat story!
These pictures were taken at my local Pioneer Day Festival! It was magic hour when we took these pictures and the sky really was beautiful, although I might have added a little color with the A Color Story App by ABM! It is definitely my favorite photo editing app ever and I edit every picture on this blog with it! This day, I was wearing my favorite black and white striped shirt and dark stretchy denim capris. It doesn't look like it, but it was really hot this day, 100+ degrees! Gotta love Las Vegas summers!
I found this swimsuit while on my Utah Road Trip at a small vintage shop. I'm obsessed with the white crochet and the low back and it was only $5! When I looked it up, I found out that it's from the 80s, one of my favorite fashion decades. Such a lucky find! My flamingo and parrot pool floaties were also lucky finds, at the dollar store of all places! Obviously they're not huge or functional, but they're really fun and cute. This was a fun swim day that quickly turned into a rain storm. I swear I'm cursed, for as long as I can remember, it becomes stormy every time I go swimming! Never invite me to a pool party!
Summer baseball games have been a tradition for Noah and I since we started dating. I was never interested in baseball until I started dating a baseball player, it always seemed long and sweaty! Even though they are long and sweaty events, they're also such an integral part of summer for me now. Maybe I'm only in it for the food... shaved ice, shelled peanuts, soft pretzels, cotton candy! Or the outfits... everyone looks good in a baseball shirt and cap! I really do love summer baseball games with my best friend.
With it being August, we are on the ending side of summer! This summer has been amazing, but I can't say I'm too sad to be moving onto autumn! I miss living in my small college town and going on adventures every weekend. I'm antsy to move into the house I'm sharing with some of my girlfriends from last semester! I have high hopes for lots of backyard parties and trips to national parks.
I also have a lot of high hopes for this blog in the next few months! I'm working on back to school posts for August and September that I'm really excited for. I'm also insanely excited for October! My all time favorite month and my all time favorite holiday, Halloween! I have so many fun costume ideas that I hope to share on here. The holidays are my favorite time of year and I'm excited to show gift ideas, party ideas, and a bunch of other stuff!
