Sometimes I buy things on impulse and end up returning them. Then, sometimes I buy something, thinking I’ll love it, and end up just feeling “eh” about it. Well the total opposite happened with this Tory Burch belt. I went to the mall to check out the Gucci belts, because I was thinking of purchasing one. The color I wanted was sold out, so I went to Tory Burch instead. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever once noticed her belts before. I tried on this belt and really loved it, but kept comparing it to the Gucci one I wanted. Once I got it home, I still wasn’t 100% sure if I was keeping it. But, once I wore it with white, I knew it was a keeper! I love this cognac and white combo, plus the belt matches my crossbody bag that I carry all the time! Statement belts are a huge trend right now, and this Tory Burch belt is half the price of the Gucci one (another great selling point)! Oh, and did I mention that it reverses to GOLD?! So basically, it’s two belts in one. Sold.
For a Tuesday, yesterday was about as good as it gets. Chris was off work due to rainy weather. I’ve been working Monday/Wed/Friday lately, so I was off work, too. We started the morning with homemade pancakes for breakfast. We were going to go out for breakfast, but Johannes suggested staying home. He LOVES helping me make pancakes. Actually, I got up early one time and made them before he woke up, and he was so upset he cried. We hung out at home for a while, then the weather cleared up, so we went on a really long bike ride. It’s one of my favorite things to do as a family. Johannes has a seat on the back of Chris’ bike (however, this will probably be the last year for that). 🙁 I’ve been really slacking on exercising lately, so I was pretty sore and tired afterwards (I think we rode about 14 miles total on the trail), but it was so much fun. On our way home, we stopped at our favorite Mexican spot for dinner. It was the kind of day that just makes your soul happy. I love days like that!
I hope you have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!
