Highlight of the week 6.4.15

*taking a moment to celebrate the Monday thru Friday's*

 I'm writing this today on a Thursday because we're leaving for Michigan in a few hours and I don't plan on doing any blogging while we're there. 

First of all, the weather this week was AMAZING! All sunshine icons! (like how I describe the weather in iPhone weather app pictures?) And it was only a 3 day work week for both of us, so that in itself has made this week great so far. But definitely the highlight (and the almost lowlight) of my week so far was when the dress finally came that I ordered to wear for the wedding this weekend. I ordered this dress completely last minute and stalked the UPS tracking every 2 seconds until it finally arrived yesterday. It was delayed a few extra days because of the flooding and I was freaking out because I didn't know if it would be here in time. And of course...I have nothing else to wear ;)

Long story short, it didn't fit. I'm not a stranger to J.crew dresses so I already knew my size, but this dress fit was waay off. I texted John panicking and it went something like this...

Morgan- "F*CK"
John- "uh oh"
Morgan- "F*CK! The dress is too small"
John- "Is it doable?"
Morgan- "If I don't want to eat."
Morgan- "Or sit. OMG I HAVE TO SIT"

As much as I loved the color and the print..it wasn't going to happen. So I booked it over to the nearest mall...which have I mentioned how much I hate driving in Houston traffic?! The worst! But it all turned out okay because they returned the dress for me even though they didn't carry it in the store (they didn't have this particular dress in petite so I couldn't just size up) and I found something to exchange it for AND the wonderful sales woman honored the 30% off discount that I originally got online! I actually feel so much better now because:  A) I can breath. B) eat cake. C) it has pockets!!


Whoever invented the dress with pockets... absolutely genius. 

Happy weekend! x.

    1. J.crew outlet is probably my favorite place in the entire world. There's one about 5 minutes from us here and I frequent the sale racks about once a week ;)

  4. I am so happy you didn't completely lose it with stress! I definitely would have! But dress with pockets are the BEST! Now you can hide so many things in there (extra treats from the wedding maybe?). Have an awesome weekend!

    1. Thank you Beth! It definitely came in handy because I could keep my phone in it and whip it out real quick to take photos ;)

  5. I would have been so upset! I'm glad they exchanged it for you and honored your discount! Dresses with pockets are amazing--my wedding dress actually had pockets and it was the best thing ever!

    1. When I tried this dress on I was totally thinking that! I could have used pockets in my wedding dress!
