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.

LA Travel Diary Part 2




The second part of our trip to LA we stayed in Korea Town at The Line Hotel. We got a good deal from Expedia when booking our stay, which was the main reason why we stayed here (also because it was recommended and did have good reviews).  I really liked everything about the hotel and the location. I can't recommend it enough. Plus it was pretty affordable for LA. There was so much good food around and in the hotel too. The Line Hotel has a great restaurant ( The Commissary - pictured below), pool, and cafe. The pool was packed on Saturday, so if you want to get a good spot I definitely recommend heading down early on the weekend (around 9 or 10 AM), and I also recommend making a reservation for brunch or dinner at the restaurant as well.

LA Travel Diary Part 1






I was going to do one long blog post for the travel diary, but then I decided to break them up because man, I have too many photos and stories that it would be the longest post ever. haha. We stayed in Santa Monica at Casa Del Mar for the first 3 nights because of work. Santa Monica has the cutest beach with a nice boardwalk and had great shops and food. We had a blast! This was our first trip to LA and our second trip to California (we stayed in San Diego for our honeymoon). LA was a lot colder than I thought it would be and can go from hot to cold in 5 minutes. I can be extra temperature sensitive so I'm probably exaggerating but layers were key for me. When the sun finally came out, I took advantage of the beach and was able to soak up a bit of sun. I was definitely not brave enough to get into the water, but my feet did when we took those pictures. Got quite a few outtakes because of the freezing cold water. My face was priceless. haha.
