Hello everyone! Happy Monday! Thank you all for the sweet comments on my last post! As I had said, I don't always recognize our dating anniversary anymore, but 15 years was too big of a milestone to pass up! We had a great day and I'll get to more of that in a minute, but first up, we have Inspiration Monday! Today the birds picked Nikki Reed and my age is showing again in that I don't quite know who she is. Oh well, she's got a pretty chic outfit on at any rate!
Once again, I decided to make the outfit work for work - so here we go. I chose dressy black pants and two of the shirts my cousin gave me. Wonder if she ever wore these together? I also got a haircut over the weekend. It had only been about three weeks since my last one, but I just felt like it was a shaggy, hot mess honestly. This time I told the person I wanted a spiky pixie and I think she got the idea! I'm happy anyway.
And speaking of happy, let's get back to my anniversary day with the Pants Monkey. We went to a vineyard about an hour north and east of us in Wisconsin and enjoyed a lazy afternoon of tasting wine. It was really quite good. We brought several bottles home with us! In the evening we headed down to a newer restaurant in Minneapolis - it's been there a year already actually, but we hadn't had a chance to until now, called the Butcher and the Boar. It's definitely a "meat" kind of place, but I was surprised at the large number of seafood dishes they had as well. We're carnivores though, so of course we had ourselves some meat. It was delish. I would love to go back there sometime, we were definitely treating ourselves so it was spendy, but I bet we could go back and maybe not spend quite as much! After dinner we were pretty much in a food coma and headed home to watch our all time shared favorite movie, Punch Drunk Love. It was a nice day!

The rest of my weekend involved breaking my shopping ban a little early (more to come on this, I'm so excited about my goodies, even if a Facebook friend did comment "um what happened to abstaining?) seeing my blogging besties Lori, Cambria and Amanda, doing a beer tasting and enjoying pizza with some other good friends, and eating my favorite Mexican meal at home to close out the weekend. All in all, it was a good one! And it's another short week for this girl, so no complaints there either!
Don't forget to head over to two birds to see the other Inspiration Monday outfits! And have a fantastic day!
