Chris and I made a bet the other day that I knew I would win. A coworker of mine was studying to take the Minnesota driver's test, and told me a few things that were surprising laws about driving. (Did you know you could go 10 miles over the speed limit to pass someone on a 2-lane highway?) Anywho, I told Chris about it, and he didn't believe me. Having literally just read it on her carefully highlighted manual, I made a bet I knew I'd win. I asked Chris what he wanted to bet, and he said, "whoever loses does laundry for a month." I told him that was sort of an unfair bet since he rarely does laundry anyway, but since I knew I'd win, I took it. So ladies and gentlemen, I will not be doing laundry the whole month of January. If I am looking ragged and dirty, it's probably because neither is Chris.
We'll see...
xo,

  1. I was just talking to my friend about some of the weird driving rules I remember from when I studied for my drivers license (like a million years ago!) You two are looking quite adorable in your big cozy coats!

  4. That sounds like the best bet ever!! Hmm, I need to find a way to make that bet with my husband too and get him to do the laundry! Love your looks--those coats look so cozy and warm!

  6. Ha - that's hilarious! Now I need to find a bet I'd win - I'd love to have the month off of laundry! :)

    PS. I think you both wear your looks better than Nicole!

  7. A man married to you ought to know by now not to place bets against you. You're too smart and formidable!

    I love oversized shaggy coats. For some reason, they exude femininity. My first woman's coat is white and shaggy. I thrifted it for $10 and wear it every excuse I get.

  8. Yay for winning the bet. Also that a good law to know as well. Have a great week.

  9. Ha ha! I love a bet I know I can win. Problem is my husband never bets anything worthwhile. A kiss is great...but doing the laundry for a month...I can get on board with that. Mind you, all of my clothes would be ruined...so maybe it is for the best.

  10. Haha, that's a great bet - it would be the same situation at my house, Nate rarely does laundry either. LOVE both of your fuzzy, furry coats! Perfect for this cold weather right now!

  12. Amazing win!!! I would love to not have to do laundry for a whole month! What a great way to start 2015! I love that big fluffy coat! It looks so warm and cozy!

  13. That story is awesome. LOVED it - Also, I didn't know that, so it was a good fact on a Monday morning. Here is to passing everyone I see on 494. :)

  14. It's currently 0 degrees out so your warm, fuzzy coats are looking seriously good. I'd love to get out of laundry! But my husband would probably bet a month of dishwashing which is usually his chore.

  16. Haha, I made a similarly east bet with my father. Hello new running shoes!

  17. Ha ha! Oh my gosh. I wouldn't trust my husband with my clothes. I would totally make him do his own though. How does one man go through so many socks in one week? You both did an awesome job with the fuzzy jackets.

  18. LOL! I love it! And, I love both stylings of the inspiration photo. Both fur coats have very different--but really great textures to them. I meant to get a shot of me in my leo print faux fur, but it rained on Saturday... Unfortunately, all I have are the pics I took Friday evening. Thanks for hosting this link up.

  19. I am dying over both of your coats and I want your hat Meghan (sorry I called you Nora on the previous post). Those fur coats I would love to have: so fun, girly and luscious. Looks like a great Pinspiration Monday ahead for 2015.

    Happy New Year to you beautiful, stylish sisters. Miss hearing from you. <3 Ada.

  20. haha, nice win!! i couldn't trust the men to do my laundry as they'd probably just throw everything in the dryer and shrink my entire wardrobe, lol. loving the furry coat and the DSW boots!!

  21. Cute look on you two. Gosh I can't believe how think NR is...I think her dark hair just accentuates it...or something

  23. Megan, you're so smart! J does his own bc he's very particular and I'm not. He doesn't trust ME! ha!
