How I Met the Love of My Life


 Hi everyone!! It has been fooooorever since I have posted on here, and since today is our wedding anniversary, I figured this would be the perfect time to share these AMAZING pictures from Brooke Michelle Photography we took quite a few months ago (as you can tell by our coats. hehe). She is so talented that it was very hard to just pick a few because all of them were sooo good! Nikki and I have been married 9 YEARS as of today (eeeeek! we are getting old!). It is crazy to think that I met the love of my life when I was 13. We did not start dating until I was 16, but the story is too good not to share. :)

Bye 2017!




I wanted to shared some of my favorite photos from my phone that were taken last year that I haven't shared at all yet. It was so hard to just pick a select few, so I might be oversharing but oh weelll. I did my best to put these in chronological order, so I hope you enjoy!

Adoption Q&A



Today is Sansa's gotcha day!! She officially became our daughter three years ago! Three years ago we flew to Hungary and met this beauty and our lives changed forever. I will never forget when we first met her. She even let me hold her and we walked hand in hand too. This girl had our hearts from day one. I am so thankful for the joy that she brings to our lives. No matter what she does or how crappy the circumstances are, she is constantly laughing and smiling. Sansa is having to spend her gotcha day in the hospital, but we still got her a cake and Chipotle. :) She is here to get her T-cells harvested so they can go to a fancy lab and become CAR T-cells and then they will go right back in her to fight the leukemia. Spending the day in the PICU is not optimal, but she makes the best of it. She is our fighter and amazes us everyday.

Gingham + A Capsule Wardrobe Update





This is probably one of the most bloggeriest (can I make that a word?) outfits I have ever worn and I reallyyyyy like it. Gingham is super trendy at the moment and I am a fan. Pants, skirts, shirts, dresses. I love that gingham comes in almost any form. This top is from StyleWe and I fell in love when I saw it. You all know I am a sucker for some cute dramatic sleeves. This may not be the first time you have seen this top, as it is super popular in the bloggersphere (yep, just making up words here), and I love it nonetheless. I have been trying to stay away from the super trendy items that will probably fade in the next year or two, gingham being a rare exception of course. ;) Hence why I started a capsule wardrobe (if you do not know what a capsule wardrobe is go back to this blog post) at the beginning of the year. I was tired of clutter and not being intentional with my wardrobe choices, so I tried out a capsule wardrobe for a couple of months and am finally doing a recap of the process.

Cancer Sucks



Last week Sansa had a bone marrow sample taken from her spine because it had been 6 months since her bone marrow transplant in January. It was a routine test to check and make sure everything was still looking good. Last Friday Sansa's doctor called me to let us know that there was leukemia present in her bone marrow. 7% to be exact. All I could think was "f*ck." I didn't say much or ask many questions on the phone because I was trying not to cry. As soon as I got off the phone the flood of tears came. Fear, frustration, anger, and sadness came rushing to the surface. We are beyond devastated because we did not expect anything like this to happen. Sansa has been her crazy happy normal self (just like you see in these photos), so we were very unprepared for this news. I mean, you can never really be prepared for things like this, but we just felt completely blindsided since everything with Sansa has been super great after her bone marrow transplant.

Why I Started Blogging






I started this blog for many reasons, but a major one was that I wanted a way to keep track of my life in a journal of sorts. I originally started a private blog three years ago, and I figured why not make it public, so I started Caturday Style. This blog started out mainly as a fashion blog, but has turned into a fashion and lifestyle blog. I made a goal this year to be more intentional and vulnerable with my posts and I am loving it so far.

Cat Purse




When I saw this adorable cat purse and realized that it came in pink, I knew it was meant to be. I styled my whole outfit around this adorable bag. My birthday is coming up next week, and I might just wear this outfit again for my birthday because I love it that much. haha. I recently bought these shoes as my birthday shoes. I like to dress up a little for my birthday, and wear something that I love either new or old (but honestly probably something new *insert sassy emoji here*). When I look good, I feel good, so I always try to do it up extra for my birthday. I had been wanting a pair of sparkly/metallic boots and when I walked by Forever 21 last weekend I saw these cuties on display. I was lucky enough to get them in my size. I wear a size 10, so finding shoes at any store in my size is a victory. I definitely did a happy dance right in the middle of the store.
