Day TWENTY-THREE and Home!

February 26, 2011

I am so excited to be home this weekend! My little sister is home from college so the entire fam is together (Whitney and I are the only ones that moved away). We are throwing my sister-in-law a baby shower this morning and tonight my parents and I are going to the Brad Paisley concert....good times!

Gotta make this quick, I have a baby shower to attend and promise to share lots of pics next week.

Day TWENTY-TWO and Blog Awards!!!!!!

February 25, 2011

The first ever Fashion Beauty Friend Friday blog awards are upon us and boy oh boy was it hard for me to nominate just one blogger for each category!!! Here's how it works-all the responses from everyone that participates will be combined and then Katy will put together a list of the TOP FIVE bloggers named in each category. Those finalists will then be opened up to a public vote over the next couple of weeks.

In no specific order here are my choices:

1. Creative Juices-(most creative blogger)- I nominated Katie of Color Me Katie...take a look at her blog and you will see why.

2. The Real Deal-(authenticity)- I nominated Sydney of The Daybook for this one because that girl is as real as they come! She is madly, deeply in love with her hubbie and wants to let the world know and she comes across as one of the sweetest and cutest ladies I have ever seen. If you have not stumbled across her blog yet...just prepared to be hooked!

3. Spark Notes-(most helpful)- I nominated Elaine of I'm Clothed Much because she volunteers to help others with blog tweaks all the time (she has helped me personally and all I had to do was e-mail her) and also writes posts breaking computer stuff down to the technical illiterate...ahem me.

4. Newbie-(best blogger less than a year old)- I nominated Kileen of Cute & Little because she always dresses so professional looking even when she is wearing jeans. Although her little blog is only around 6 months old, she has already made quite the impact!

5. Can You Hear Me Now-(most connected)-I nominated Collette of Statements in Fashion because she always comments on other people's blogs, she is fabulous on twitter and when everyone read her amazing weight loss story, she started her own bloggers weight loss group.

6. If I Had A Hammer-(best DIY)- I nominated Erica of P.S.-I Made This because her motto is "I see it. I like it. I make it." Nuff said...

7. Tribe Leader-(blogger who leads others and brings bloggers together)- I nominated Indiana from Adored Austin because she seems like such a warm and loving person and genuinely loves her community and gladly promotes it whenever she can. She also helped organize The Texas Style Council Conference and who would put fourth that much effect if you didn't love what you do?

8. Practically Perfect-(most fashionable)- I nominated Bee of Atlantic-Pacific because I have never, ever seen that girl have an off day! She puts together amazing outfits and there is nothing she puts on that I wouldn't wear. Seriously, the girl has MAD STYLE.

9. Paint By Numbers-(best beauty blogger)- I nominated Noelle of Beautygirl 24 because she does a great mix of high and low end makeup.

10. Renaissance Woman-(best all around blogger)- I nominated Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere because she literally does it posts, lifestyle, cooking, beauty and she throws in her own personal touches on everything.

Let me just tell you today was one of those days. I overslept, my hair was not cooperating at all and to makes matters worse I weighed myself this morning (because I am obsessed) and I was up from yesterday on the scale. I didn't feel like getting dressed so I just threw on my comfy black dress and chambray shirt and called it a day.

Looking back at these pictures I should have taken the extra 10 seconds to put on a belt, or at least a necklace, so I didn't look so sloppy going into work. Hey-you win some and you lose some!

Don't forget to enter the cardigan have until next week!

Only 10 more outfits left of the 30x30 challenge...yippee! First it was only my shoes that I missed but as the weather has turned warmer, now I am starting to miss my clothes as well. All my short sleeved shirts are begging to be worn and who am I to neglect them??

If I had to name this outfit, it would be called sugar and spice but who names their outfits..geez. I like the contrast of sweet with my heart print shirt and spice with my motorcycle boots. Who's the girl that acts all innocent and sweet but can still kick your ass...ME! I think I just came up with my own personal version of a superhero.

Day NINETEEN and a Purge...

If you asked me what item I regret putting in the 30x30 challenge it would have to be this red dress! I have only worn it twice the entire time and it has driven me crazy each time(the fit is all funny on my body)...if anyone wants it I am putting it in the discard pile after Kendi's challenge is done.

One of my employee's asked me why I was so dressed up must be the sequins! A little sparkle at work used to cause quite a disruption but I was thinking it was becoming more and more common. Wonder what he thinks I look like all the other days, grrr!

February 21, 2011

Sunday is my lazy day...the day when I usually just lay around in my pajama's and watch tv By some miracle I actually got up and got dressed and ready for the day, I also accomplished a load of laundry, did some ironing, and purchased my baby shower gift for my sister-in-laws shower this weekend.

I decided to roll my wide legged jeans up while I was doing chores around the house but then ended up liking the "boyfriend jean" style it created and kept them like that when I ventured out for the day.

After all was said and done I came back and watched Sex and the City 2...I didn't want to let go of my Sunday ritual completely. After all, I am a couch potato at heart!

Day SEVENTEEN and a Date...

This is what I wore on hubby and I's date night Saturday night. For those of you following me on twitter my stupid computer was doing some funky stuff and not allowing me to upload pictures no matter how many times I tried!

We went out to eat and then to see No Strings Attached starring Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher. There were some parts that I thought were hilarious but some stuff was pretty corny ( my personal opinion.)

Stay tuned for my Sunday outfit post later today...

Day SIXTEEN and a Happy Dance!

February 18, 2011

"Oh what a beautiful morning,

Oh what a beautiful day,

I've got a wonderful feeling,

Everything's going my way"

It's Friday folks and it is supposed to be in the low 70's today so I think that calls for a lovely song! Every time I hear that song, it immediately brings back memories of my mother's mom, my Mama Dot, and how we use to sit and watch musicals when I went and stayed the night with her. If you have never seen the 1955 musical Oklahoma! go and rent it; it puts me in a happy state of mind.

Since I woke up in such a great mood, I also had to dress accordingly. (It's like I decided to wear all the bright colors in my 30x30 wardrobe at once.) I cannot wait for spring, keep up the great work Mother Nature!

Day FIFTEEN and Pattern Mixing...

February 17, 2011

Fifteen outfits down and fifteen more to go!!! So far I have not really been struggling with putting outfits together for this challenge but I think the second half is what is gonna get to me. The only thing I have been missing like crazy in my closet is my shoes...that could be because like 2 days into this challenge the two pairs of heels I ordered from Urban Outfitters got delivered to me and I wanna wear them so bad. I had to put them out of sight so I wouldn't be tempted!

Today I wore something totally out of my comfort zone, but I like it. Pattern mixing is something I always like on others but every time I try and mix prints I feel like the outfit is all wrong. Here's to trying new things!
