Quick European Vacation Part 1- Copenhagen

Have you ever thought of going to Europe and then actually gone 2.5 weeks later? I have. I just came back from a week in Copenhagen and Stockholm. For those of you who don't own a globe- Denmark and Sweden. 

Copenhagen!!! If I had to choose one word to describe that lovely city it would be-  BIKES!
There were literally bikes parked everywhere in the city. The streets have really cool bike only lanes fully equipped with their own set of stoplights. Apparently biking is a big deal. 

It was mostly cloudy and cold the whole trip which made for interesting/beautiful lighting for pictures. 

 Getting into some trouble...

 I ate way too many of these babies...

 and this hugemongor veggie burger

The one hour the sun came out...

 I rode in a paddle boat goose!

These jeans are from thredUP, one of my favorite online thrift stores! Although I decided to make these bell-bottoms into skinnies, I still love the weight and feel of them. Joe's is a great brand, and at around $35, I got such a deal!

Shopping Spree

I went on a little shopping spree for Mother's Day. It was GLORIOUS! Time to myself is rare so I took full advantage and shopped to my little heart's content. More to come on my budget and what I got. 

I found this cute dress at TJ Maxx. It's Cynthia Rowley and was around $60, more than I'm willing to pay, so sadly, this one went back on the racks.
