After weeks of anxiety and indecision, I am proud to say I have purchased my first vehicle! Moreover, I am just elated that the whole car buying experience is behind me. It was miserable. Truth be told, I am one of those people who makes it a lot harder than it has to be. But after countless trips to countless dealerships, I was finally able to get exactly what I wanted: a 2013 Toyota Tacoma. Folks who know me well know that my first vehicle was a 1989 Chevy Silverado lovingly named Ron Burgandy, so it wasn’t a stretch for me to return to my roots. Just wanted to post a few pictures of it because I have never been so in love with a vehicle before!
On the fashion tip, I just scored these tan booties from Marshall’s. We’re venturing into that weird time of the season where it’s not quite appropriate to wear sandals anymore, but you’re not ready to retire your summer dresses just yet. Throw on a pair of tan booties and a denim jacket and problem solved!
Last weekend, I met my Aunt and Grandpa at Daveste Vineyards in Troutman, N.C. and had such a lovely time that I wanted to bring Kevin back this weekend. Well, I was running late (after purchasing this new clutch from Nordstrom) and when we made the turn down the vineyard’s gravel road, we were met with a wedding.
We parked and snuck out to the furthest rows of vines to snap some pics but on our way out we had to dive back into the rows to avoid the Bride and Groom taking their own photographs! I hope we were covert enough to go unnoticed!
Regardless, my hopes of sampling the local wine while relaxing in rocking chairs were dashed. Hopefully next time we visit, we can enjoy the scenery instead of wedding crashing!
If you know me, you know I have an unhealthy obsession with horror flicks. And not just any horror flicks, slasher movies. But ever since the Saw franchise came to a close, I have had to settle with a little less gore.
That being said, I still appreciate a good campy movie, so Kevin and I went to see You’re Next tonight. Though the concept was familiar, I would still recommend it. But nothing as of late has compared to The Conjuring. Kevin put it best in this instagram.
Next on my list is Insidious 2. And if I’ve put you in the mood for a good scary movie now, grab some popcorn and check out my top 10:
The Fourth Kind (took the Paranormal Activity found-footage concept but made it actually scary)
The Descent (touches on a wide range of fears)
Any Saw movie (except for the 3D one)
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (classic)
Cabin Fever (Rider Strong, that is all)
House of 1,000 Corpses (fell asleep with this on in the background and had the worst nightmares)
