255 : 365 Spent a gloomy morning fiddling around with some embroidery thread. I've been wanting to learn to embroider for some time now but I have a really bad habit of getting way too ambitious about learning new crafts, then being disappointed when I'm not automatically amazing at them. I'm trying to be very patient with embroidery because I have a ton of really great ideas I'd love to stitch up. Even though this is my very first time and the very first thing I've ever stitched I feel confident it's something I might actually take the time to learn to do well.

 Do you know what this is? It's a SPICE RACK!! I literally don't think there could be a cooler one.

You guys, a cat bridge! I love this so much. I'm not sure how much my kitties would love this since it's not a box but I'd melt if I saw them in it, especially looking as relaxed as this little dude. 
Duck fashion show! I personally think ducks are super creepy but I can't resist any animal dressed up, and these ones do look pretty fabulous.
Certainly wouldn't mind snuggling up in this sweater.

 My goodness, this thing is straight out of my dreams!
Not sure how often I really need a pencil case, but this one is absolutely perfect!

What an adorable tea towel!

I'm on a bit of a pillow kick as of late. How adorable is this one?!

Hope you have a wonderful Friday!

Earlier in the week I shared photos from our quick day trip to Rochester. The abandoned subway took up a nice chunk of the day but it wasn't all we did. We drove around the city for a while looking for a few spots we had heard of, and briefly researched but none of them really panned out for us. While we were looking for one of the spots we saw a cave. I was initially less than enthused about hiking down a massive hill to get to it but since the boys were pumped about it I didn't really have much of a choice. I grudgingly followed behind whining about how the hill hurt my knees.
The waterfall was creating the nicest, most refreshing mist, and there was a beautiful grassy knoll. It was like something from another country. It just didn't seem like something you should find in the middle of the city. I think my favorite part was how even though it was in the middle of the city, there weren't many people there. It's an incredible spot and somehow the three of us, and some dude fishing were the only ones there to relish in it's beauty. It's quite a hike down, and for some silly reason we decided to make our own path on the way back up, holy smokes, it was a cliiiiimb, but it was totally worth it to be that close to the falls!
After that we did a bit of monkeying around on a bridge that was right beside an abandoned building. It was actually one of my favorite parts of the whole trip!
Basically, it was no fun at all! Just kidding, obviously! Rochester is a super awesome city. I've visited a lot of new cities this year and this is one of two that I could totally picture myself living in. (Ya know, if I wasn't completely in love with Cleveland!) 

PS. On a kind of related note; if live in Rochester, or are even passing through, go eat at Magnolia's. I am not a foodie. Give me a burger, and I'm happy. BUT DAAAANG SON, that was a good lunch. I highly, highly recommend the buffalo chicken wrap.

Y'all, the weather has taken a turn here in Ohio! Not that that is anything out of the ordinary since the weather in Northeast Ohio is notoriously crazy but what I really mean is that fall has hit! Wahoo!! I've been enjoying days filled with hot chocolate, hoodies, and empty beaches. It's pretty incredible how quickly it changed, but I'm certainly not complaining. It's my favorite time of the year and this is kind of my favorite outfit. I've worn it just over a handful of times already since the weather has changed. The best thing about it is that I actually have multiple pairs of overalls and tons of striped shirts so I can basically wear a clean version of this same outfit all the time. Haha.

On another note, can we just take a second to talk about how small the pockets in ladies jeans are?! What am I even supposed to put in there? I actually had a bunch of quarters in my pocket (for laundry, I don't normally just carry around a tiny pocket full of quarters, promise!) and I lost some because those pockets are so darn useless. I saw a thing the other day making fun of how girls always respond to the compliment "nice dress!" with "It has pockets!" But dang man, if womens pants had pockets that held anything we wouldn't be so pumped about dresses that have actual useful pockets! Kind of a strange thing to rant about I guess, but it's silly that I can't even fit my keys in any of my pants pockets.

Hope you have a most fabulous Wednesday!
