since i took yesterday off (for secret activities), and i'm taking this friday off (for secret only to karen activities; bridal shower) this week is a glorious three day week for me! and since my depression and fading hope has diminished from last week, i am in a super celebratory mood!! so today, i attempted my very first homemade amaretto sours and i have to say, they are damn tasty. i'm on my second one, along with some cheese, crackers and hummus, so delish! (celebratory moods also require diet breaking....no really, its required)
i really hope that i'm able to share in my exciting news soon. you have no idea how much it's been killing me. everyone who knows me, knows a) i am NOT a patient person b) i CANNOT keep secrets.
its KILLING me!!!
so, to help pass the time, i'll show you a few pics. there would be more, but i have yet to procure a replacement for the broken camera, so pictures are harder to come by these days. i hope that will be remedied in short order.
kertch got me this necklace as a thank you gift for planning her shower and i really like it! i've been working on trying it on with different things in my closet to see what kind of stuff i can pair it with. so far, i like it best with black. but i did just get a "school bus" yellow cardi from club monaco that i'm really digging it with too. hopefully pics of that soon too.
the other cool thing about these outfits are these new shoes i got to wear in karen's wedding. i think they are copying marni, but i can't remember, and even if i could, i couldn't justify them. i think for the price, these look super luxe. my photos do not do them justice.

as a side note, i hope there will be a lot more posting coming up. there are great things on the horizon for the spitler clan and i can't wait to blog all about it. stay tuned!
since i'm feeling a little brainscattered, i thought i'd throw in the latest pic of the adorable kona tiberious and nala amadala. too cute, those two.

josh, however, was quite spendy and bought this awesome suit and dress shoes. we went to about five men's suit type places with little luck, and then as a last stop, stopped in calvin klein on our way out. well, we should have know to shop there first, as their stuff always fits josh to a T.
here is josh looking dashing in his new suit! (he may deny this, but he actually suggested this photo shoot. as he was trying on his suit and shoes at home, he said, "are you gonna do a blogondo post about my outfit??". i had to oblige!)
shirt: jos a banks
shoes: cole haan

tomorrow's friday...at last. yay!
since i'm trying to stick to my budget, but still scratch the itchy trigger finger when i MUST, i'm trying to find interesting ways to add cute accessories to my wardrobe. i had some BR rewards coupons burning a hole in my proverbial pocket, so when i saw this necklace, i couldn't resist.
it will match perfectly with my new nailpolish. oh, and all the other coral colored clothes i got before i went on my ban.
i have high hopes! will do an outfit post when it arrives.

i've been waiting for the official time and pictures to get posted before i wrote this post. it took them long enough!
so, im still pretty pleased with my time, considering i was really only aiming for under 2 hours, but it seems that i didn't run quite as fast as originally thought. from the run to remember website:
"RUNNERS WERE LED OFF COURSE IN ERROR AND RAN A COURSEmaking my pace time 8:44 minutes/mile instead of 8:30. so that kinda of stinks, but oh well.
THAT WAS 815 FEET SHORT. THE PACE COLUMN HAS BEEN
ADJUSTED TO A 12.955 MILE COURSE."
here are some pictures of me. keep in mind running pictures are NEVER cute. well, except for this last one. so let me rephrase. keep in mind running pictures of ME are NEVER cute. liz, she's another story. :)

balenciagas are my dream bags and i would settle for any style, really. for awhile i thought i wanted a city, but that's more of a handheld bag, and i've come to realize that i'm just not down with that. i'm a handsfree kinda girl, and so the day style is so much better for me. i love the giant silver hardware too. i've mapped out the stores that sell balenciaga in las vegas, now all i need to do is win. hmmmm, that's going to be the hard part!

first up is my wine club night ensemble from last weekend. there were only four of us, so we did a wine club "field trip" and went to the brix wine bar in pittsfield. it was really good and we all had a great time. i even managed to stay up past my bedtime when we went to see "knowing" afterwards. it wasn't the worst movie i've ever seen, but it did nothing to move nicholas cage from his most hated actor position.
cardigan: jcrew, black
jeans: true religion billy in supervixen
shoes: stuart weizman babydoll
and now today's outfit. notice the white jeans? this post is just for megan, who totally rocks and helped me get these at a steep discount from anthro. yay meg!
top: ali ro (from the gilt sale)
jeans: joe's jeans, honey in jenny
shoes: matt bernson gladiator in gold
watch: michael kors
bracelet: erica weiner
i'm so glad the weekend is here! with nice weather to boot! josh and i already started things off right with some frappaccinos and a nice walk on the bike path. the pups enjoyed it too. :)
