Life lately

I didn't realize I went a whole month(and then some) without posting anything, so here's a few things I've been up to lately!

Jared, Sophie and I found a cute little local brunch type restaurant! It's called Sleepy Bee, and it's totally delicious(although a bit pricey). If you're into organic stuff and grass fed animals, this is the place for you.

Bathing this stinky sleepy beast. Don't let that smile fool you, he is miserable whenever he's in the tub. This is his least favorite pass time.

Watching this fella roll around on his new long board as much as he can before the weather gets too cold. Check that gnarly bruise... it's not from long boarding... he doesn't even remember what its from.

If you're near a krispy kreme, do yourself a favor and stop in and try the ghost busters donuts. They're incredible!

Miss Sophia got herself a new apartment all to herself(and Otis of course). I deemed myself the muscles for the day and helped her move in and get settled. Its looking adorable so far!

At our local kroger there is an awesome gentleman in the seafood department who always makes the most delicious samples. So delicious, that we always end up buying whatever he's dishing out. His most recent dish is salmon, and the people behind the counter will add all the spices and butter and seasonings you want, put it in a bag, and all you gotta go is cook it. It is SO FRIGGIN AWESOME and tasty!! We're obsessed. And look how pretty!

Mom, Duke and I went to visit Star the other day and on our way back we came across a little ice cream stand that just so happened to be open. Of course we stopped. I'd been craving a blue dipped cone and it hit the spot. There were signs in the window however, that advertised an apple spice sundae and that they're open until Novemeber, so it's safe to say I'll be back...
 And last but certainly not least, baby Willow entered the world! Jared's brother and sister-in-law's first little nugget. Holding her was kinda magical, as soon as she was in my arms I instantly felt so peaceful. I can't wait until she's old enough to play with us like Jared's other niece and nephew :)

What I Wore - Deery Me!

Thank you Bufford for ruining this shot (;¬_¬)
Tank - Target
Flannel - Thrifted
Corduroy - Charlotte Russe
Cardigan - Ebay
Moccasins - gift
Socks - Target
Necklace - local shop(check previous posts to find which one)

Everything antlers- can I get a hell yeah?! Haha, I seriously love anything with antlers, blame it on growing up with my dad hunting and adorning the house with his trophies.  So why not put them all on at once, right?!
So I wanted to let you in on a secret about this cardigan. First of all, let me gush about how amazing it is. I'm in love with it! Its so big and cozy and ahhh (~‾⌣‾)~ Well I first found one just like it in Chicago when I was shopping with my gal pals at vintage stores. I found two similar ones and they wanted $40 and $60 for them. As badly as I wanted them, eating was a bit larger or a priority so I had to leave without them. Yet I'm a determined girl who gets what she wants and so I logged into etsy and ebay and was on a man hunt! Come to find out that there are dozens of them floating around for all sorts of prices. Some people wanted $175, some wanted $30. I also found out that they're basically all home made because I found a vintage pattern for purchase. How cool! I'm not that dedicated to knitting or crocheting anymore so I shopped around for a few weeks until I found one pop up for cheaper than all the aforementioned prices. Huzzah! (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧ 
I also finally got brave enough to seek out a new location for outfit photos. Since moving to Cincinnati, I've basically stayed in my neighborhood or yard for shoots because I don't know where to go. I had a lot of free time Saturday so I loaded up and eager Bufford(he loves to go go go!) and decided to just cruise around until something caught my eye. This was all on some school grounds, the area I found was so cute! I'll probably be back again.
Yay for fall and cozy cardigans!

Red River Gorge

Sometime over the summer Jared came home and said his coworkers recommended we go hiking and camping at a place called Red River Gorge. Little did he know, my coworkers had also told me similar. It was decided that as soon as the weather cooled down(so we could bring Bufford) and we both had a day off together, we'd go down and check it out. Originally we planned to camp, but it ended up being a day trip(which is fine with me because I'm more of a sleep in my bed at the end of the day kinda gal anyway). Boy, did it blow my mind!

 The first stop off we checked out was the suspension bridge. There were a lot of nice friendly people out hiking.

Jared tried to climb this rock but lost his footing and slid all the way down and skinned his knee.

Bufford being the center of attention and the apple of everyone's eye as usual.

Some lion king dinguses.
Then we stopped at an area labled "Whistling Arch" which peaked my curiosity. When we first hiked out we were led to a rocky area and a neat arch and hole in the rock. That was fine and dandy until we noticed a little trail under the arch. Behind it was a small cliff that a family was scaling down. We patiently waited for them to descend and then we headed up. Boof was like a little mountain goat, he did most of the climbing himself! When we got to the top I pretty much fell to my knees in terror. We suddenly up on a huge cliff, and Bufford and Jared waltzed right up to the edge like it was no big deal. I was in the fetal position. I thought for sure my dog was gonna walk right off the edge and take Jared down with him. I'm convinced he has no depth perception, how else could he be that bold?!
Miles and miles...

Can you see the fear in my eyes?

This guy thinks he's a goat.


We stopped off at one last place because we knew the sun would go down after that. It was called Angel's Windows or something like that. No more cliffs, but lots of arches, and little overhang formations. Very very pretty.

I'm sure we didn't even see half of what's there, and I already can't wait to go back! I would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes the outdoors and isn't afraid of heights :)

Halloween Decorating

Google added this effect and filter, and I kinda dig it!
As you probably know by now, Halloween is my favorite holiday. A few nights ago, I couldn't take it anymore, and I asked Jared to drag up the box of decorations so I could get into the spirit. Now I'm in full blown Halloween mode!

I told Jared to pretend to be a spider, hehe.
We got the inside set up as well.
Now all we need is some candy to pass out to trick-or-treaters and to work on our costumes! *Hums its the most wonderful time of the year*

The American Sign Museum

The Sign Museum wasn't as big as I was expecting, but it definitely was worth seeing. I'm someone who loves neon lights, and this place is full of them. There is a tour, but Sophie and I decided not to take it and instead just meandered around. My favorite was the Mcdonald's one of course!

The Big Boy and I.

Sweet lil Sophie!
