(Cat)urday! will be back in November...

Sorry guys, (Cat)urday will be temporarily suspended until all of this moving stuff is done!

Jon and I are having our families over today for a goodbye get-together. It's the last day that we'll be able to get everyone over at once, so that's why we're having the goodbye party so early. We'll probably see everyone individually at least one more time before we leave, but it's still sad!

Rainy Leopard

I've been trying to schedule a joint outfit shoot with Jon, but the past two days have been rainy. I have a cute idea that I want to do before we move. Today we ran some errands early in the morning, which is when I snapped this outfit photo. I just threw on a simple dress and my leopard print coat to try to look a little more put together, but I'm sure my sleepy face gave me away. The house is well on its way to being packed. We're still organizing a bit, but we've gotten quite a bit done. Now it's time to call apartments...

Oh and look at these delicious lentil burgers I made yesterday! I was on a cooking roll...lentil burgers...vegetable soup...and pumpkin pie!

Coat: H&M
Dress: Thrifted
Tights: Target

Vintage Wednesday - On Vacation

Sorry guys, but Vintage Wednesday will be taking a temporary leave of absence until all of this packing and moving stuff is done in November. I spent 3 hours cleaning and packing all of my purses yesterday. Tonight I'm going to start packing any clothes that I'm not using at the moment. I'm going to have a very limited wardrobe for the next few weeks. Yikes!

Jon and I didn't get the apartment that we really wanted. It was rented out while they were going through our application. Bummer. So it's back to square one. My brother has said we can stay with him if we're unable to find anything before we move. The past couple of places we've called have said they won't rent a place unless you come and see it first. So maybe we'll have more luck once we're out there. It just makes me so nervous moving without an apartment! But then, it also makes me nervous moving into an apartment we haven't seen. So either way there's pros and cons I suppose.

Anyway, so yeah once I've moved and am blogging on a regular basis again I'll start Vintage Wednesday back up.

Corn Maize

In case you didn't know this, in the midwest we walk around in the cornfields for fun. Haha, which is exactly what I did on Friday with Jon & my mom! We went out to the country to go to a corn maze near Armada, Michigan. We had to solve a "clue-like" mystery in the maze by finding different checkpoints with different pictures that were clues as to "who done it". It turned out it was the chicken with the wrench in the outhouse! You just can't trust those chickens!

We also enjoyed some fresh cider and donuts. Oh, I'm so glad I'm still in Michigan right now for cider and donuts! This is absolutely my favorite time of the year, especially when it's 70+ degrees out! When I lived in Chicago I missed doing all of these fun autumn activities. Of course, they would have some stuff set up outside of Daley Plaza, but it's not the same as driving out an hour and taking in the golden surroundings, sipping fresh cider, roaming through the pumpkin patches....ah, I just love it so much!

We got to walk through their haunted house. It was neat to do this during the day when it's not running because we got to see all of the props and artwork that went into it.

Oh, and there was an 11 day old baby goat! Adorable!!!
