These past couple of weeks have been kind of a blur. I had planned to have a new Friday Favorites post up yesterday, but I've been working so much that I didn't have the time or energy to finish it. I'll have a good one up next week, I promise. I did manage to snap these photos earlier this week, though. There was one day where the weather was unseasonably warm -- so much so that I didn't even need a coat! -- and I thought I'd grab the opportunity to wear my new Hell Bunny dress. I'd been eyeing this dress for quite some time, but I couldn't decide on a color (it also comes in green and purple). It seemed to disappear from Amazon and eBay, but I ended up finding it on the UK Amazon site for very cheap in this blue colorway, so I decided to go for it. I wish I'd had it in time to do an Oktoberfest post (Novemberfest doesn't have the same ring to it), but I still had to style it with Heidi braids and my pretzel necklace! (And yes, I know that those things are German and my post title is very much Austrian... but I had to take some creative license here... and make a musical theatre reference.)
As far as life updates: on a positive note, I've been doing pretty well on Weight Watchers this week. Sometimes when I've tried to go back on it, it's been hard to commit, but I feel much more determined this time. It's sort of weird how much more I appreciate food when I take the time to account for everything I put in my body. Food just tastes better, somehow. And then on a somewhat scary note, my dad was in a pretty bad car accident this week. He's fine, luckily, but his van was pretty much totaled. Some guy ran a red light and t-boned right into my dad. Fortunately, it was on the passenger side (and no one else was in the car). My road test is in less than 2 weeks, which is sort of ironic timing, since one of the main reasons I avoided driving for so long was because of car accidents. But my dad is safe, and I know how to keep myself safe while driving, so it's not something that induces fear so much anymore. So I guess I'm making progress all around!
