Trust your gut.

Hey there Jeans and Tees and Travel and Cakes Readers, here's to a delightful Monday! How was your weekend? I hope you had a great one, filled with a new adventure or two. I had an awesomely productive weekend and got a ton of stuff done, only 26 days until I'm off to France, I have to get cracking on a lot of things.

The major project this weekend was finding a dress for Kyle's brother's wedding. Well, after searching high and low, trying on dress after dress, I still haven't found one I'm in love with. I'm seriously running out of time, it's 13 days away, nothing like waiting until the last minute.

I may not have found a dress but I did find a lot of other great clothes to take with me to France. I've been buying more blacks, skirts,  boots and flats, I'm going to try and pull off the whole "Parisian Chic" thing. We'll see how that goes!
I also finally set up my Etsy shop this weekend! Now you can purchase some of my quotable creations. I hope you check the site out, maybe something will catch your eye. If there is a quote that you'd like me to make up for you, just send me the desired quote and I'll send you the creation!

But by far the biggest highlight of the weekend came early this morning. My Manfriend sent a deposit to a dog breeder to secure us a little boy puppy from a new litter of English Golden Retrievers! The breeder is in France and the Manfriend has been communicating back and forth with them over the past two weeks. I can't tell you how exited the both of us are to get the little guy, we're huge dog lovers and our new pup will be the perfect companion overseas and when he's old enough he'll be my running buddy. Now I really can't wait to get over to France. I'll reveal the name once we pick him up, but I'm sure a lot of you guys could figure it out knowing the Manfriend and my history.

There are five days to go in the Jeans and Tees and Travel and Cakes First Birthday Giveaway! Check out the link below and comment away, entering yourself the chance to win a Longchamp tote bag which sells for $145. The giveaway ends this Friday, September 30th at 12 noon (est).

Good Luck to all of you and you are amazing me with all your comments!

Today's quote comes from the television show, Grey's Anatomy. This show is chock full of amazing quotes and this one caught my attention recently. I am a big believer in trusting and following your heart. Your heart or others may call it your gut, knows what is right for you. So trust it, go with it, follow your heart song, it may take you to places you've only dreamed of.


No matter how high the stakes, sooner or later you're just gonna have to go with your gut. And maybe, just maybe, that will take you right where you were supposed to be.

Is it strange that I can't wait to hear what you name the dog?
