It's been WAYYYY too long since my last post... (I wanna say circa, April?). Ayee! Part of me feels guilty, but the majority of feels happy and overwhelmed because we've been completely slammed with the most amazing projects. Between moving (again) into our dream apartment, starting a brick and mortar business together, planning a wedding and working FULL time... it's been a tad hectic to say the least. The good news? I couldn't be more excited to share with all my gg-ers the fun, crazy, and wonderful events to come.
First off, it's officially October. At the crack of dawn yesterday, I mayyyyy have broken out the halloween decor. Gold skulls and glitter pumpkins to be specific. (That post will be coming in hot, soon). But something even more special happened yesterday.
1. I actually put on clothes that were not casual work attire or mens sweats (100% guilty).
2. My man and I went out for a perfect date night at our absolutely FAVORITE restaurant, The Silk Road in Missoula, MT.
This place is a local staple and easily the best food we've eaten in Montana. (Shameless plug here). Their Tapas style menu and amazing wine selection are perfect for a romantic night out or grabbing a quick bite at the bar.
Roughly 1-2 times a week Matt and I would shimmy up to this bar and hang out with the best wait staff and share a meal. Our favorite drinks were always brought to us without asking and often free of charge. Whether we were celebrating the weeks' successes or drowning our woes in deliciousness, it has always been 'our spot'. From our first date to the last night of operating as a dine-in restaurant we would always find ourselves there. They will continue to offering their catering services, THANK GAWD (fingers crossed we can afford them for our wedding).
Curious? Check them out.
In honor of a monumental night, and the fact that I made a recent trip to ULTA for some fall goodies, I thought it was the perfect time to re-emerge. (Kinda like a swamp creature, but glamorous.)
Soft Waves & Pumpkin Colored Everything

I paired my autumn look with simple details. Small gold, stud earrings, and a simple Sora&Company gem necklace.
I found the cutest and comfiest sweater dresses, EVER! For $16.99 at ROSS (you know I love a good deal) I obviously had to buy two. One in pumpkin and black. I've been wearing to work lately by dressing them up with a sweater or blazer, and knee high boots. So easy to throw on and you still look put together. (Sorry men's XL sweats, I'll see you tonight).
Good thing he loves me more than he loves selfies. HA! He is always a good sport, and knows I am obsessed with capturing beautiful moments.
