Hat Giveaway Winner...

The winner of the cute MoJo Spa hat giveaway is.....





Congrats Kayla B. of Ramblings of A Small Town Girl!!! I guess unlucky number 13 turned out to be lucky this time around!!! Be expecting a e-mail from me shortly and thanks to everyone that entered.

It's Almost The Weekend!!!

I almost froze to death taking these pictures the other day...it was raining and the wind was whipping around and then it hit me, I must really enjoy blogging! This is when I get all emotional and thank everyone for taking the time out of your day to visit my bloggy blog. I truly appreciate every, single one of you...both old and new readers!

This outfit is the exact opposite of what I wore on Wednesday..I must be on a pink and black kick. I think I bought one of these polka dot cardigans in every color from Target, but when I find something I like I buy in bulk. Oops!

So tonight is the night...ladies night! Me and all my hoochie mama friends (j/k) are going out on the town for one of my BFF's bachlorette party. I will have my camera handy because the best memories come from bad ideas and I would bet money with all of us together, we will get crazy!

Wild Women!!!

This dress is so far out of my comfort zone but I totally went for it...red lips and everything!!

I ordered my leopard print dress off of eBay from some little vintage store after staring at it for seriously 20 minutes trying to decide if I would ever work up the nerve to wear it out of my house. Leopard may not be that big of a deal to some people but up until now, I have always worn it in small doses...like my leopard flats or a purse.

Starting to get WAY excited for the weekend, I have a bachelorette party to go to for one of my besties tomorrow night. Whaaa!

Striped GALORE....

Has everyone heard of Everybody, Everywear yet? In a nutshell, most women have lots of the same basic pieces...a black shirt here, a khaki skirt there, you get the drift. So Linda and Liz came up with the genius idea that everybody wear the same item on the same day and see how many ways people can style that item! Click on the website later tonight to see how many ways to style...you guessed it STRIPES, technically breton stripes!!

I doubled up, not to be a suck up, but because I genuinely liked the way my stripe on stripe ensemble turned out. I am saving many of my basic pieces for the 30 for 30 challenge so I don't have much to work with this week before the shopping ban hits. (Actually I am kindda liking this skirt...it may have to be one of my 30 pieces.)

Family and Friends Weekend

I hope everyone had a great weekend, I had a busy one! I had a retreat bright and early Saturday morning that ended at noon, and then hubs and I hopped in the car for a night in Gatlinburg, TN to celebrate Christmas with his entire side of the family. Christmas when it's almost February you ask??? That is just how we roll....

I wanted to be comfortable at the retreat and during the car ride up so I settled on my new (favorite) wide legged jeans. So glad these are coming back in style!! I have had this studded tank top since December and really couldn't wait until Spring to wear it so I layered it with a cardigan and of course, a belt. I have not had time to hem these blue jean babies so I needed a pair of my highest heeled boots so I wouldn't be tripping over myself all day.

All in all, a great (but-not-relaxing) weekend. I need another day of rest...

Target Model????

If any of you guys follow me on Twitter you probably saw that I went to Target on my lunch break yesterday and came out $130 bucks poorer but with a pair of heels, 3 (more) cardigans, 1 skirt and 1 dress. I seriously have a shopping addiction BUT this will soon stop because as of February 1st I am on a month.long.shopping.ban!!!!

Some of you probably think I have lost my mind and all the other's have figured out by now I am taking Kendi of Kendi Everyday up on her 30 for 30 challenge next month. I am scared to death I will suck at this challenge and also excited I am pushing myself to do this because I love, love, love to shop! It will be so nice to actually save up some money next month and the hubs will probably want to kiss Kendi on the mouth for coming up with this smart, money saving idea!

Things That Make Ya Go Hmmmm???

1. Why do people run out to get milk every.single.time the weather calls for snow?

2. Finding the perfect article of clothing only to find that there isn't one available in your size!

3. Why do people (ahem- me) always crave fattening foods when they are on a diet?

4. People cutting line at the grocery store....why is it sooooo important to get your ice cream home before mine!!

5. Cleaning out your wallet of receipts and the very next day you need one of them! (thanks to the lovely Miss K of Love, Lipstick, and Pearls for this one)
