Due to my ANGER last night, the Mister and I decided to go out for sushi to de-stress and spend some quality time together. We went to one of our favorite spots — SUSHI ROCK. Sushi Rock is home of my favorite Maki roll in the world! – the Pretty Woman
It contains: salmon, avocado, cucumber and cream cheese. Topped with fresh kiwi slices! Isn’t she gorgeous?

This certainly helped me forget my frustrations! – this, and my stunning Mister, of course!
Tonight the Mister and I are going to see a movie (Funny People) with my parents — looking forward to it!
What are all of you up to tonight?
As most of you know by now, I LOVE re-purposing items of my wardrobe to create different outfits. This week I wore a long, summery dress out for a casual dinner and then to work the next day. Here’s how I did it:
Casual dinner with the fam
Dress: Saks outlet – I believe it is Romeo and Juliet
Gladiator sandals: Sam Edelman
Cream tee: French Republic
Obligatory bathroom shot
First up this week we have Elina! Check out those shoes and earrings! Hot mama! I love the punch of color they add to this otherwise understated, sophisticated outfit! This shirt dress is adorable (no wonder, it’s Theory! One of my fave designers ) and I love the thin built-in-belt. They way Elina has her hair pulled back ads to the overall chicness, too
Shoes: Charles David
Earrings: Nina Nguyen (bought through ideeli)
Bracelet: David Yurman (gift from husband)
The stylish Alisa joins us once again with a blouse that I am going to try and steal from her. A true layering guru, I love the way that Alisa uses different shapes and silhouettes to create a unique look. The cropped blazer provides an interesting layer, without overpowering the gorgeous blouse. The thin belt accentuates her figure without drawing attention from the rest of the outfit. And how amazing is it that she scored most of this at TJ Maxx?!

Welcome back, Danielle! I love love love love LOVE this look! It’s often my go-to fall outfit! Flowing dress? Check! Tights? Check! COWBOY BOOTS (esp. Frye!)? CHECK! Vintagey accessories? Check and Check! Danielle looks so effortlessly stylish – and is making me CRAVE fall! Seriously, if you saw this girl on the street, wouldn’t you immediately assume she was awesome? I would
Welcome, Paige! What an awesome color! This outfit is stunning! I love the studded, somewhat hard belt paired with the dainty shoes and feminine skirt. The skirt creates a great shape as it billows outwards and this is a perfect example of how to wear leggings in a FLATTERING way. I wear leggings like this all the time with my skirts and I love how it breaks up the outfit and draws focus to the adorable shoes

Well people, in order to ‘keep it real,’ I have to say…. I AM FRUSTRATED!!!
ANGRY, LIVID, IRRATIONAL, (insert every other ‘angry’ adjective you can think of!) - UGH!
To make a long story short, I won’t be having surgery tomorrow. My surgeon threw his back out and is unable to operate. It has been rescheduled for NEXT Friday.
The reason why this is such an issue is because I inconvenienced a lot of people to accommodate this surgery. I moved meetings around at work, the Mister took off work and moved his meetings around, we skipped out on the Dave Matthews Band concert since it was raining and I didn’t want to get more sick (they won’t operate if you are sick)…needless to say I now feel like the inconvenience. NOT A GOOD FEELING!
For those of you who have had surgery before, you know how much re-scheduling, planning, etc. goes into it. In addition, I have been anticipating this surgery and been ‘mentally ready’ for it all week. Now I feel all discombobulated and out of sync. Haha, I guess I don’t adapt very well to change
I’m really hoping the Mister and I could make the best of it and enjoy one last weekend before I turn into a little ‘hobbler!’ I’m seeing some putt-putt and possibly a zoo visit in our future!
Anyway, before I heard of this terrible news, I met the Mister for lunch and purchased a snack to enjoy later this afternoon.
Let’s just say it was unwrapped as soon as I returned to my desk.
All wrapped up
Check out those chocolate chips!

OK — I need your help – what do you do when you are super stressed? How do you keep things in perspective? How do you handle the fact that you (even if it was indirectly) also inconvenienced the people you care about most? Because all I want to do is SCREAM!
