Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend celebrating Thanksgiving. I sure did. I also took a loooooooooong and much needed weekend break from the interwebs. It's great to unplug every once in a while. I'll confess, though, that I didn't really fully unplug. And I had my nose stuck on my DS playing the new LEGO Lord of the Rings game that came out a couple weeks ago. I have a weakness for LEGO video games since I don't feel the pressure to button mash all that much. Plus, the LEGO games I've played are cooperative, so if I mess up, whoever is playing with me can fix it all up.


  1. I'm glad you had a relaxing week -- I feel like I got zero break this past weekend, which blows. Sigh. But that sweater of yours cheers me up!

    I also love that jumper, last time I was at Urban Outfitters they had so many cute jumpers, it was hard to pick just one to buy :)

  15. I love that sweater!! Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving!!

  16. Such a cute sweater!! I don't know how you unplugged all weekend. I don't know if I could do that?!

  17. It is nice just taking a few days off and not getting on the computer. (Games never count!) I really love how the curve of the necklace mimics the swans, its a really neat little detail. (And dude, one of the cutest sweater ever. I love how you toughed it up with the rugged boots.)

  18. Sounds like a fun game to me!! I always wish I had more time to play the video games I want to play... sigh. You look fantastic in this outfit Laura! Love how you layered a patterned top under the cute swan sweater.

  19. That swan sweater is magnificent!


  20. you look adorable Laura, love the bright pink knit with that gold collar necklace!

  21. Great sweater and that chocolate croissant and pumpkin role look delicious!

  22. a fellow instagrammer had posted a pumpkin roll, too! it looks so yummy. i've never seen any of the LEGO video games, but my son is obsessed with legos right now :)


  23. Yay for long, relaxing, and unplugged weekends! I, on the other hand, opt for the long, relaxing, and unplugged fortnight :P

    I am happy to hear you had a nice Thanksgiving :)

    Oh, and that is one fine sweater you have there!
