Love my weekends!

Hi there! Happy weekend! This one has been an interesting one for me. Perhaps there will be more on that at a later date. 

I have the weekend off! Yay. My husband I enjoyed sleeping in then regretfully had to complete multiple chores. It felt great to get them done but I will admit that I wished I had a cleaning person at multiple times throughout the day. We ended up going out for dinner and enjoying our time together very, very much and now 5 hours later I am enjoying a soft pretzel with mustard. Mmmm. 

So, here's what my outfit looked like. Enjoy ... Oh, and enjoy your weekend!

Toodles. XOXO

A few of my faves...

I am pretty certain that the majority of you have very little time to comb your own hair, let alone consume the majority of your personal time reading blogs. But in the rare event that your Monday morning is in fact filled with free time to browse the internet, I'd like to devote this post to a few of my favorite blogs. Check them out!

Lilly's Style: Lilly is the reason I started blogging. She's beautiful and her trend is SPOT-ON. I think you'll enjoy your style.

Kendi Everyday: This girl blogs. I am pretty certain it's part of her daily income but she is really, really clever. And her sense of style is something to be admired.

Putting Me Together: Aubrey has an amazing heart and a very classic style. She takes the time to walk you through the basics of putting together an outfit.

Other Side of Gray: Annie is hilarious! She is ALWAYS trying new things. Her style is really great but her blog is worth visiting.

Everyday is a country song: Maria is a friend of a friend who I have felt an emotional connection with since the first day I read her blog. She is an amazing woman with a journey toward motherhood. You'll laugh, cry and smile reading her posts.

Enjoy the photos, words, and time that each one of the woman put into their blogs. I know I do!

Anniversary Weekend

If you're married you'll be able to chime in on what makes great marriage. Support, dedication, understanding, real respect, forgiveness, kindness, regret, and love. Did I realize this when I said, I DO? Absolutely not. Have I learned this with time? Yes. There have been moments I have thought to myself, I am done! There have been moments he has thought the same. But you know what, we said it was "forever" and if you know anything about me, I am no dang quitter. So I will stick this out until the end and each day may be tough. Each day may be fun. Each day I will love the man that holds me so close I can hardly breathe because I said I would to my God, to my family, and to my friends and because I love him more than I can express right now... I am blessed. Really, really blessed.

Phew... on to the outfit. We spend the last day on the bike. Tomorrow Sophia returns to her storage facility until Spring appears. Let me say, it was cold. So I piled on a warm sweater, a sweatshirt, and my leather jacket for the trip. But, for appearance purposes, let's say I wore this :)

Comfy day

Well hello weekend ... almost. I am super excited to share a few long days with my husband as we celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary this Saturday, October 13th. I am blessed to have a husband who accepts me for the weirdo I am and who loves me unconditionally. I will keep you posted about the events of our weekend.

Today was chore day. After chores I ran a few errands. If you follow me on Facebook you've heard about my recent hatred for jeans. I've also found myself gearing up for my off days in very comfortable clothing. For two reasons I guess; It's comfy and I am now amongst the most adorable PINK merchandise at Victoria's Secret. 

I think the initial thought with this outfit would be to put on jeans. But these black leggings worked perfectly. This shirt is actually orange and brown, not gray as it appears. It was comfy and I can't wait to wear it again.

Thanks for checking in! XOXO

Fall Wants.

Hi there. The crazy-ness that is my life of retail (and we're just gearing up for holidays) hasn't allowed any adorable outfits for me to post. I have so many wants this retail season. Fall always does that to me and if you know me, you know I have a really hard time saying no (to anything and everyone except my husband). So to follow I'll share a few things I really want to incorporate into my fall casual life. Feel free to share a few of yours in the comments!

1. Black riding boots - I have three pairs of black boots. I am looking for a simple riding boot that I can pair with everything. These caught my eye. 
Aldo - Taite

2. Boyfriend Jeans - True boyfriend fit with a little sex appeal too. I picture these with my Toms, my flats, and occasionally they might get tucked into one of my many pairs of boots.

Gap- Sexy Boyfriend.

3. A new handbag - This will never enter my life.
I guess it could. I could possibly convince my husband I'm the most amazing wife on the planet and I deserve this. But how realistic would that be. I mean seriously... A little about this bag. It's stunning. Beautiful. I want it so much. What can I do to make this happen?

And this concludes my wants for the moment. Thoughts? Wants? Needs? I'd love to know I'm not the only one.
