Lately and a Request

Happy Tuesday!  I hope everyone is having a great start to the week!  I had a crazy weekend at work. For those of you who don't know, I am an ultrasound sonographer, and I work the weekend shift at a huge hospital in NC.  You may or may not have heard of the terrible tornadoes that swept through our area this weekend.  They caused massive devastation throughout several counties, and at least 22 people lost their lives. 

This is a Lowes store that a tornado ripped through...

While I was working my shift, the hospital lost all power, and was on severe weather alerts.  Traumas were coming in left and right.  It was so hard to see all these victims coming into the hospital after being severely injured from the storms....especially the children.  AND for the most part, all of the patients had lost their homes as well.  So needless to say, after such a busy and traumatic weekend, I have had a lazy past couple of days.

I have joined this lady for a few workouts....

I found this giant 3lb bag of my favorite candy in the world...I could barely lift it!
yes please!!

I had volleyball practice for an upcoming "just for fun" tournament between DUKE and UNC.
My forearms didn't have too much fun though....yikes.

I've been rocking some statement necklaces!  :)

Hubs has started growing out a 'stache.  He loves it.  Me, not so much. 
It's temporary though...all of the DUKE students are doing a "Mustache Bash", where they grow out their mustaches, raise money, and donate to a local charity. 

 Ok, that's about it...
Now for the request...I need YOUR help!

My bday is coming up, and I am asking hubs for a Longchamp tote bag!  I went to Nordy's today to pick which color I like the best. 
I narrowed it down to two, "Beige" and "Curry".  And I can't decide!
Obviously "Beige" is more classic and neutral, but "Curry" is fun and cheerful, and makes me happy.
("Curry" is showing up more green in this pic, it's more of a citrine/lime color) 

Which should I ask for?!?!

curry! It seems to go with more things for the spring/summer time personally and makes you happiest too ! I pray for the ones who are effected by the awful storms and glad you are okay!!!!

I like the curry one! Such a fun color, you could wear it with everything!

Annie said...

I don't think you could go wrong with either color - both super cute.

I will say for the record that all my light color longchamps look older quicker than my darker ones. You can turn them inside out and wash but I'd recommend a bit darker.

Eeks, your arms look painful. PS - where did you get that precious blue necklace?

my goodness, that storm damage is devastating! i can't imagine being at work and losing power..that must have been crazy. you look adorable in that last pic...and i say go with the beige. even though i do love the curry color, i think the beige is more timeless :)

i'm so sorry about the storms...i have a lot of friends in eastern nc and my parents live in greensboro. definitely scary! i think you should go with the curry! such a pretty color.
