Old Maid

Hello!  I’ve been doing a little thinking about the past 10 years of my life.  I love my life, but with school starting and all it makes me think of high school.  I know, I’m that person, but in high school I didn’t have any responsibilities or cares in the world besides cheer, dance and boys!  I’ve been alone this whole week because I am in Dallas for work.  I have a lot of time to myself and I was thinking would I have changed things in my life that lead me to this point?  The only thing I would have changed was being more serious about school.  I went to some college, but never graduated.  Sometimes I think I should go back, but I don’t want to be the old maid in all of her classes.  Plus I haven’t been back for so long that I would have to take some of my general classes again and I do not want to be old enough to be a Freshman’s mother! HAHA  I feel like if I would have finished school I would have a better sense and direction in my life.  Being an adult is fun, but sometimes I wish I was that 16-year-old cheerleader whose parents still paid for everything!  Anyway…  Sorry for the rant.  Being alone so much sometimes isn’t good because my brain goes a million miles an hour and thinks of all the what could have beens.  I hope you have a good Friday!

I’m Not A Morning Person

Happy Monday!  This tee describes me perfectly!  I have never been a morning person.  I’ve tried and I just can’t do it.  I am the person who hits snooze 10 times before they actually get up!  When I was in Jr. High and High School my mom had to get me up every morning.  I could not get up on my own and once I was up I would fall asleep in the shower for a good 15-20 minutes.  I don’t know what it is about mornings, but I hate them!  I can stay up all night, but when it comes to getting up I dread it!  A few weeks ago on a Sunday, Daniel was trying to get me up and I just wouldn’t.  First of all it was Sunday and I  don’t need to get up early.  He was so frustrated and told me that I wasted my day.  Maybe I did, but it felt so nice to sleep in!  If you were like me and now you’re a morning person please tell me what you did!  I would love to be chipper in the mornings and actually get things done!  Anyway…  Have a good day!

I Got Stung

Hi!  I hope you’re having a good week so far.  Mine started a little rough because I got stung by a bee!  I honestly don’t remember the last time I got stung.  Daniel and I were at his company party and it was a carnival theme. We were getting on The Zipper and when I sat down something poked the back of my leg.  I thought there was something sharp on the seat.  I wiped the seat and my leg and didn’t feel anything.  When we got locked in our cart I looked down and saw the stupid bee on the ground!  My leg was throbbing and I couldn’t get off the ride.  I wasn’t sure if I was allergic because it’s been so long.  I was freaking out a bit thinking I might have an allergic reaction on this ride and I won’t be able to do anything about it.  Luckily I was fine and nothing happened to me one the ride besides getting a little nauseous from spinning around so much.  Anyway…  Let’s talk about these culottes for a sec.  They are so comfy!  I was in NYC at the beginning of the year and found them at Zara.  I forgot I had them and spotted them in my closet last week. They are the best summer pant because they are so light weight.  I can’t want to wear these more.  It’ll probably wear them once a week!  Okay, have a good Wednesday!

Monday Morning Brights

Good morning!  I hope you had a good weekend!  I sure did.  Daniel and I went to Park City, UT for a little anniversary getaway.  We didn’t do anything special, but it was so nice and relaxing.  We got massages, ate a lot of food, walked around Main Street, went to Park Silly and just spent time together.  It was the perfect way to celebrate our first year of marriage!  Anyway…  I usually don’t wear a lot of color and I for sure don’t wear yellow very much.  I feel like yellow tops makes my teeth look super yellow.  I know, I’m a little crazy!  I saw this top last fall before I the Kingdom and State’s spring line launched and fell in love!  The fabric is neoprene which is right on trend.  I paired it with shorts, but it also looks good with a pair of skinny jeans.  The great thing about this top is it’s a thick ish material so it’ll for sure cross over into your fall wardrobe!  Kk have a great day!  Bye!

Culottes & Life Lessons

Hello!  I know it’s Wednesday, but I am still trying to get into the swing of things after the holiday weekend!  The past few days I have been lagging a little.  Friday we went boating and the weather was perfect!  There obviously were a lot of boats on the lake, but we still had fun.  The only sucky part about our day was breaking down and being stranded on the water!  We called the rangers office, but they were dealing with an accident and said they would get to us as soon as they were done.  We tried to flag people down, but for some reason no one was willing to stop and help.  We were getting a little worried because we were getting close to shore and didn’t want the bottom of the boat to hit rocks.  We were just about to jump out and push the boat to safety when some people stopped and asked if we needed help.  Honestly, they were the last people who I thought would stop.  It was a group of friends, two guys and one girl.  They were a little harsh looking, but so nice!  They helped tie a rope onto our boat and slowly pulled us to the ramp.  One of the guys even came into our boat to check the motor and things out to see if he knew what was wrong.  I feel bad that I made a snap judgement on them.  I for sure learned a lesson last week and will never judge someone on their appearance.  I wish I knew their names so I could send them a thank you.  I know this outfit has nothing to do with my weekend or my story, but I thought it was a good lesson to share with everyone.  Anyway…  These culottes are one of my favorite pieces from Kingdom and State.  They are seriously the bomb.com!  If you haven’t tried culottes try them NOW!  I know that these are white, but they are thick and not see through at all.  Plus they are so comfy and flattering.  I really feel so skinny in them!  Yahoo!  Who doesn’t love that feeling?  Anyway…  I think I’ve talked your ears off enough!  Bye!
