Warm & Fuzzy

Well HEY there all you Here&Now readers! The name's Annie & if we've never met...you should know that:
 1) I have a mild obsession with nachos
 2) I love instagramming photos of Agatha, my French bulldog (see here)
 3) I have a little style blog myself over at The Other Side of Gray
You should also know that I am SO excited to be guest posting for the lovely Jessica while she is on vacay...enjoying the beautiful Oregon scenery, and also probably dancing her bootay off at a wedding. Aren't weddings the best?!

I figured since it was Thursday, I would bring a little weekly tradition of my own over here. On Thursdays, I usually like to talk about 5 things that make me "warm & fuzzy" (ha...minds out of the gutter please). In other words, here are some things that I'm just really loving right now:
1. Colorful sequin tops, like the one I'm wearing! I have a plethora of other sequined things...but they are mostly black, white or silver...so I'm loving this more fun & vibrant take on a sparkly tradition.

2. VACATIONS! Jessica is off enjoying hers right now, but the hubs & myself just got back from a 10 day trip to Ireland, and I have to say...it was ah.may.zing. Beautiful scenery, delicious food & drinks, and so unbelievably relaxing. Anyone else going anywhere fun for vacation?

3. Boot season! I'm sorry to those of you who don't appreciate me mentioning that Fall is only 1.5 months away, and I'm sweating my butt off in this humidity as I type...but despite that, boot season is my favorite season and I totally have my eye on these babies from Madewell. And probably a bunch of other things from their Fall collection too.

4. This recipe for caramel cinnamon buns...literally has me drooling.

5. Picnics (especially ones that involve wine). The hubs & I went to Gouveia Vineyards for a little dinner & some wine with friends a few weeks ago. We laid down a blanket, ate homemade sandwiches, drank some wine (obvi), and just enjoyed the beautiful twilight scenery. It was amazing and I highly recommend doing the same if you happen to live near a vineyard.
