Now that all my planning efforts for the meet-up have ceased, my life has seem to only continue to be busy, busy. This week I have quite a few things due in my classes, and this weekend I will be going to Yuma, Ariz., for some family time. Even though I've been so busy, I've been trying to make an effort to do little things for myself that I know will only leave me feeling less stressful and overwhelmed at my situation, like going to downtown Mesa for a stroll and photos, or visiting with my cousin and chatting about how fun the meet-up was.

Scott and I recently received these awesome watches from Tikkr Watches. I first heard about their company when the Texas Style Conference was in the works, and instantly fell in love with the idea of interchangeable faces and bands, and how simple, chic, and durable the watches looked. I also really like that they are based out of Austin, Texas! Such a creative, and awesome area!
I was super excited when Tikkr offered to send Scott and I both a watch to style and where around town. They have so many color choices of bands to choose from, and I love that you can even pick between two different watch face colors (white and black). In the end, Scott and I chose colors that we both liked so we could trade from time to time (ya know, because you shouldn't be limited in the color watch you wear every day!)
Since Scott and I got our watches in the mail (in a very cool, see-through circular packing tube // I'm a sucker for good packaging) we really haven't taken them off. We both have received a few compliments on them, and a guy even stopped us outside of a local coffee shop to ask us about them. To say they are a hit in our book is an understatement!
On another note, I still kind feel like I'm on cloud nine this week (even though I have mass amounts of work to do). Meeting so many of my favorite bloggers last weekend felt surreal, and I wish we all never had to go our separate ways. I felt so lucky to be able to spend so much time with Kelsey, Vanessa, and Danielle. We all had so much fun taking photos of our food, sipping coffee, and chatting about blog domains and photo accounts. I seriously miss those three so much already and can't wait to see them all again!
