I love how people say, 

"people can't drive when it rains here"
That's everywhere, people. I was on a conference call with like 40 people from 40 different places in the United States and everyone answered with, "here too". 

let's embrace that it sucks driving when it rains and it's a national problem and not just where YOU live. 

ok, I'm going to sit back and do my work now and quit thinking about my commute home. 

however, I'll be listening to Florence and the Machine's song, "Dog Days Are Over". I'm in LOVE with it.

I am obsessed with San Francisco jewelry designer Jan Michaels. I bought this ring below in onxy and gold... it's huge, its awesome and I have gotten countless amounts of compliments on it. Do I ever buy simple understated jewelry? No. I have the most perfect engagement ring that defines exactly that. Why would I want to compete? So, I buy large, statement, obnoxious jewelry that could honestly be used as weapons if need be. :)

I right now have an obsession with rings and shoes. I'm in trouble.

I went to a FREE music festival! 
Like, for real... FREE! I love Richard Branson and his Virgin FreeFests! 

My favorite act was Temper Trap, they were/are amazing. Ed Sharpe put on a much better show than he did at 930 a couple months ago. As always here are some pictures from my great Saturday afternoon. :) We can't wait for Austin City Limits!

and this is my favorite picture with my favorite person. a perfect afternoon.

Check out my awesome new ring! It's a House of Harlow creation (nicole richie's jewelry line) and I have been eyeing it for about 2 weeks and finally pulled the trigger and bought it. It's definitely a statement ring and I just LOVE it. Scott on the other hand... "what is that?" is what came out of his mouth the second I came home so excited about it. Hahahahaa! I still love it. 

Hi ring, I love you!
check out my new favorite coozie from OBX! If this isn't a conversation starter I don't know what is! It's a hole in the wall tiny place that sells really big and greasy good biscuits and well, porn. Pretty original name, yes?

I bought a couple... leave me a comment telling me how awesome I am and I'll pick a winner to send it to you. Carly isn't allowed to win though, I don't have enough money to send to Australia. ;)
Ok, now for a little catch-up... 

Over the Labor Day Weekend we made our way south to the Outer Banks, North Carolina. It's otherwise known on the east coast as OBX. Our trip had a little detour as we had hurricane Earl on our heels and the coast was evacuated so we had to stay the night in Norfolk, VA where we watched the COCKS BEAT SOUTHERN MISS at a local Hooters. Yes, Hooters. To make it even better, there was NO ONE there, BUT, we did end up winning which is always nice. :) We also hit up Busch Gardens for five hours that afternoon. Scottie was so amazed at how they serve beer at the theme park. It's owned by Anheuser-Busch... Busch Gardens... BEER! COASTERS! Carrie got sick... no more beers and coasters, I wait. haha!

Tom very upset at hurricane Earl for messing up our plans. 
Us cheering on the cocks at hooters.
We woke up early and made our way down to OBX - nags head to be precise. The weather ended up being perfect and we had such a great time hanging out with friends and making fun of Tom. 

Us checking out the post-hurricane waves from Earl

Tom hanging out on the sand with his hair pants. 
We ended up leaving on Sunday and driving north to my parents lake house to see my grandparents who drove down from PA. Scottie and I knee boarded and ended the long weekend roasting marshmellows and talking about how football. Such a great weekend. What did yall do?

Sorry for being MIA again... I tend to go into hiding every once in a while. :) 

I went wedding dress shopping and I didn't think I'd like it as much as I did. It was SO much fun. The dresses are so pretty and well, unlike anything I'd wear EVER so I did it up... trying on everything! I realized that I am not a lace, bead or sparkle girl -- not that shocking if you know me. I did find one that I absolutely LOVE. I like to go home and dream about a big purchase for a little before buying so that's what Ive been doing... dreaming and really thinking that that's the dress for me! 

no pictures... huzby might look at this!
