30 for 30: Day 16

crazy fly-away hair...

This outfit is something I've never done before.

...drumroll please...


I know, not groundbreaking for some people, but it definitely is for me! When I was in middle school and rocked my denim jacket ALL THE TIME, I refused to wear it with jeans - how would I ever find jeans that matched my jacket perfectly?? I simply couldn't. 
So, said jacket was worn with everything BUT jeans. 

However, now that chambray is in, and I've seen several other bloggers sport the light chambray on top, and dark denim on bottom, I thought I'd give it a try. I think it went pretty well - no one looked at me funny with an expression that said 
"Do you realized you're wearing 2 different colors of denim? And that you look ridiculous?" 
And that, my friends, is a win in my book.

Oh, why am I hugging a moose in the above  picture, you ask? Because my Mr. and I met up with my parents at Cabela's (it's like Disneyworld for guys who are into outdoors-y things), and my Dad and I have a thing for moose (NOT mooses, moose).

And when my Dad and I get together, we ham it up and play off each other BIG TIME. Basically, we have a really great time and laugh and tease each other until eventually my mom has to tell us to be quiet. We used to sit next to each other in church, but eventually my Mom would sit between us so we couldn't talk, or make each other laugh in the middle of the sermon
That's happened before. 

During Christmas mass.

Our First Wedding Anniversary

We're spending our first wedding anniversary in the mountains, and it's been so great to get away for just a wee bit and focus on each other. I know we don't have babies or jobs that require 60+ hours a week, but it's nice to get away to a place we both know and love, without any responsibilities, pups to take care of, work to do, or places to be. 

We got massages in the morning, then made a stop for crêpes - a favorite treat of ours. We painted some pottery, took some naps, ate delicious food, and relished our time together.

there was a real live moose right outside our building!
Here's a little trip down memory lane...

D, at the risk of over-sharing on the interwebs, I love you, my wonderful husband. And I can't wait to spend forever with you.
