Go Red!

Today I am participating in "Go Red" for the American Heart Association.  I'm doing this partly because I work for health organization and we're encouraged to do so, but also because I have had many loved ones affected by heart disease, so this is something I can do to honor them.  And finally, I had to show off my pretty new outfit from the Two Birds styling event at b. (a resale shop) from last weekend! The lovely Megan and Nora picked this outfit for me and I LOVE it!!

I believe the shirt and the jacket are from their collection and then the necklace was from b. - but I'm not 100% certain.  I went home with so much stuff I'm not sure what was from the shop and what was from Two Birds!  Anyway, this was just a perfect choice for today, even if it means I'm sitting out again from the Layer Up challenge. It's supposed to be sweater over cardigan today - check out Megan or Keely's blogs to check out other bloggers looks for today.

I'm also giddy like a child on the night before Christmas - tonight we're going to Winterfest, a craft brewing event at the MN History Center.  We went last year and had so much fun that we just had to go back again. It's an event where all sorts of local MN Craft Breweries come out and offer up samples of their best brews.  You get a little 2 oz tasting glass that you can have filled up as much as you want.  There will be food and music too and the best part is, they only sell around 700 tickets each year, so it's not too jam packed.  Yes there will be people but it's manageable.  Last year it was actually the Pants Monkey's Christmas gift, so I drove us and kind of restricted my consumption but this year, we have a sober cab lined up, so this girl is getting her drink on!  Although I found last year that eventually you kind of just get full up and start slowing down kind of naturally anyway, but it's nice to know I have a safe way to get home just in case!

The week has seriously dragged to get to today, so I am just so happy it's finally here!  I cannot wait for this evening!  The rest of the weekend is going to be equally epic, I'm going to a local fashion show tomorrow called Avoid the Gray - it's put on by Cliche, who's annual 4th of July sale is a "must go" event for me.  I am not sure what to expect as it's my first fashion show, but the tickets were cheap and it sounds like it should be fun!  Then of course Sunday is the Super Bowl!  I think by then I'll be ready to just crash on the couch at my in-laws with snacks and totally zone out in front of the TV!

I hope you all have fabulous weekends as well!!
