Friends Forever

Hello!  I have been such a slacker on writing blog posts.  Life has just been so busy!  Anyway…  I found this friends forever shirt at Zara in NYC when I was there last month.  I fell in love with it right away and it was only $8.  It’s the perfect graphic tee and I will be wearing it all fall under my jackets and cardigans!  Also, I’ve been looking for the perfect denim skirt and I found this one on forever21.com.  I love it and can’t wait to pair it with some boots and a sweater!

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!

Shorts Are My Thing

Hi Monday! This past weekend Daniel and I went to Park City with some friends and stayed over night. We went to Main Street, ate some dinner and played games all night. Then on Saturday the boys went mountain biking and the girls went to the pool. It was so relaxing and a nice weekend get away. I forget that Park City is so close to us and don’t take advantage of going up there often. Right now we don’t have kids and got to talking with one of the girls about how much freedom we have right now. We can’t take for granted this time we have to spends with our friends and do whatever we want. Don’t get me wrong I am excited to have kids with Daniel one day, but it can definitely wait a few more years. I love that we can stay up as late as we want or go on random overnight trips. If you don’t have kids don’t just sit around and wait for the time to pass. Life is too short to not live you’re life! I know once we have kids we will take them to travel and do things with us, but for right now I love the freedom and flexibility we have! Anyway… About this outfit. I seriously can’t get enough of these shorts! They have saved my life this summer. They are super light weight and go with any kind of too you want to wear. I know summer is half way over, but get some of these now! I know you won’t regret it and you won’t be throwing them away next year. They are a timeless piece to have in your closet!

A Little Bit of Color

I’ve noticed that my past few outfits have had some sort of blue hue in them so I decided to wear a colorful dress for this post.  Honestly, I love color, but I never wear it.  For some reason I always buy white, blue or black.  I should take advantage of the summer months and wear a lot of color, but I haven’t this year.  I bought this dress last year at Asos and actually got a green one too.  I love love love wearing flowy dresses.  They are the best and make you feel put together even when you feel like a hot mess!  PS Isn’t this house the cutest?  When we were shooting here we tried to open the gate to get in so we could look in the house, but it wouldn’t open!  Kk have a good weekend!

Is it Christmas Yet?

So I am posting some more about Bermuda shorts!  I was cleaning out mine and Daniel’s closet last week and found these shorts.  I bought them last year at Asos, but never worn them because I forgot I had them!  They were folded under a ton of jeans and shoved in the back of our closet.  I love finding things like this in my closet.  It’s pretty much like Christmas morning!  JKJK  Nothing is better than Christmas morning!  Speaking of Christmas I told Daniel last week that in four months I get to put our Christmas Decorations up!  Guys you have no idea how much I love Christmas!  I can’t wait!!!!!!  I actually watched a Christmas movie on Friday after work.  It was on TV so I had to!  It was on the Hallmark Channel.  It was the one called Snow Bride.  I seriously love those movies and I can’t wait until they are on every hour of the day during the holidays!  Anyway… enough about Christmas.  I hope you have a good day!

Bermudas

I’ve always said I wouldn’t be a Bermuda short wearer, but I am!  We all make some silly little fashion promise and then before you know it we’re breaking it.  I really didn’t want to start wearing Bermudas because I have made it very clear that I would NEVER EVER wear them.  Oh well, it’s been so hot here I can’t even fathom wearing jeans so I broke down!  I’ve literally worn shorts almost every day the past few weeks.  I normally wear dresses, but I found a few pair of Bermudas and can’t seem to want to wear anything else.  You will for sure be seeing these on repeat a lot!  Sorry if you get sick of them, but they are comfy and so cute!  Have a good day!

Happy FriYAY everyone!  I hope you have fun plans this weekend!  I am super excited to just chill this weekend.  We haven’t had a weekend home in five weeks!  Today for my Friday’s Favorites I am going to talk about hats.  I am obsessed with hats.  They can really make an outfit look complete.  I am very OCD when I buy hats.  I can’t wear floppy brim hats.  The brim has to be stiff or it looks super funny on my head.  Every time I go into a store I have to try them on.  Majority of the time I know they will be floppy, but hey it never hurts to try.  I found these two hats at forever 21.  I am seriously so surprised how good Forever 21’s product is getting!  I’ve seen hats that look like this and they are $60-100.  I bought both of these for under $20 each!  What a steal!  They are exactly what I’ve been looking for too.  I need to go back and buy the other colors.  They for sure are a staple in my closet all year around!  Anyway… Have a good day!  Bye!
