The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Dream

Pizza shirt back at it again. 

I had a dream last night that I was with a bunch of bloggers I follow, and we were all sitting in a class room. I was in the back. The professor asked the class, how many items did everyone buy from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? 

One blogger raised her hand and said, "14 items!" 

Another raised her hand and exclaimed, "30 items!

Another proud blogger raised her hand and boasted, "50 items, professor!!!
Everyone then slow clapped in admiration for her her 50 items. 

The professor asked me, "Sarah, how many items did you buy from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?"

I looked down at my desk, blinked, took a big deep breath and said, "None, professor. I don't have a Nordstrom card." A loud gasp filled the room and everyone immediately touched their hand to their chest in pity.  Whispers of "that poor girl" and "bless her heart" filled the room. 

Oh wait, that wasn't my dream. That was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and I'm Charlie.

Please tell me I'm not the only person without a Nordstrom card? Am I?!?!?! 


Two things I wanted to talk about today.

Thing 1: I signed up for Rent the Runway's Unlimited Program and I'm SO EXCITED ABOUT IT. I'd been thinking about joining for a while, then last week that had a 20% off your first month special and I pounced on it. You get 3 items at a time. Keep them until you're done, then send them back and pick 3 more. It's fantastic.

My first three items (here, here, here) arrived and they all fit like a glove. I was shocked and delighted. You'll see them all this weekend on our trip to Austin.

Which brings me to my next point....

Thing 2: I have a busy week this week before we head out to Austin. I mentioned partnership this last week, but we are there Thursday - Monday for a collaboration with Visit Austin. To say CB and I are pumped is a major understatement. I've been to Austin twice, but both times were for a concert so there wasn't a ton of extra exploration time.

I've got a massive list going, but I'm all ears for your recommendations on the most instagrammable spots.

For this collaboration, I'm going to be doing two different posts. One will be an Austin City Guide (hotel, entertainment, food (also yes, I'm aware that food IS entertainment)) and the other will be a mural guide to the city! FUN RIGHT?

We are staying at Hotel Van Zandt and then one night at Hotel Saint Cecilia.
So, hit me with your recs if you have any!

Ok, gotta run.
