My Last Weekend Update Before Australia

This weekend was spent, packing, stressing, packing, then stressing some more. Why? Because today I am off to Australia for three weeks.

But before we talk about today, let's talk this past weekend. Mine started off on Thursday (mentally) because I booked a flight to Chicago!! I'm going to stay with my lovely Weekend Update co-host Dana, and Sami, my other equally lovely Weekend Update co-host will be there, too! Talk about the ultimate Weekend Update! Sami threw around a the idea of a vlog featuring us three hosts so hopefully that happens. While I'm there we get to hang out with one of my favs, Chris of Chubbette Tales...Life After Spanx and hopefully I'll get to see more Chicago ladies like Stephanie of Bourbon and Glitter! So.Super.Excited.

On Friday I went to dinner with IRL-friend-turned-blogger, Kathrin of Shop.School.Sleep., in our hometown for sushi. Much needed after my brutal work week, and my upcoming trip.

My Friday outfit

Saturday I got my hair done. Thanks for everyone's opinions, ultimately I decided to go back to blonde, and re-dip dye my hair when I return if I am still into it. So many foils were needed to get rid of the blue! I am loving being a complete blonde again.

Before and After

 
And now I'm trying to mentally prepare myself for Australia! While I'm gone I have some great posts in store. Here's the schedule for the rest of the week:

Tuesday - guest post by Shanna Because Shanna Said So
Wednesday - guest post by Chris of Chubbette Tales...Life After Spanx

Yay for weekends that start on Thursdays thanks to peer pressure from me, Sami and Chris to book a trip to Chi-town!

I can't wait to hear all about your journey to Australia. When you come back, it will soon be time for some fall fun in Chicago. Since we are moving in a few weeks, my new house may still be in shambles when you get there.

Have a wonderful, wonderful trip and take lots of photos!
