My . Much . Happier . Weekend

Since last week wasn't a stellar one, I tried not sit around acting all mopey over the weekend. Luckily there were enough really amazing things going on that I could keep myself busy!

The first:

Hillary Clinton was speaking in the tiny town of Grand Ledge, not 15 miles away from where I live!!

I had to stand in line for three hours to get a spot up front, and then stand in my spot for another hour before she arrived, but it was definitely worth it. She's a very personable and effortless speaker, and much more charismatic in person than I would have expected.

There were tons of people who showed up, including this little tot who spent the entire speech (on his dad's shoulders) showing his support ;)

The second:

Jewelry shopping at Express, which is now my go-to store for amazing jewelry that won't even come close to breaking the bank:

And of course, the weekend wouldn't have been complete without sushi from Sansu (my absolute favorite Japanese restaurant) and the first season of Gossip Girl on dvd, which I was surprised to discover is not a terrible show:

How was your weekend??
