Unscheduled Programming

Due to me wanting to give my kids a good Christmas, I am suspending my internet service for a few months.  I have pre-scheduled some things to keep you all entertained til I officially get back to posting in January or February.

I will be spending my spare time playing Virtual Villagers on my laptop, teaching my little one to count to 20, and making jewelry to sell in my shop on Etsy next Spring.

Here are a few of my favorite pins right now:

November '13 Elle

 ELLE!  Now, I know you can do better than this!  I think this was a total cop out on having to style a bigger body!  Really!  A TRENCH COAT!  
Makeup- CHECK
Sorry, I just had to get that off my chest!

 Totally loving this trend!
 Blush pink is a fave of mine right now!
 As someone who makes jewelry, I am always inspired by what I see when flipping through Elle.

How do you feel about the styling on Melissa McCarthy on the cover of Elle?

Halloween Recap

My husband and I don't believe in taking our kids trick or treating for their own safety.  So we usually try to make it to one or two Halloween events going on around our area.  This year we took the boys to Sugar Land Town Center for their Halloween festivities.  I have been sick for the last 3 WEEKS with the most wicked cold and really wasn't feeling up for getting dressed so I threw on a broom skirt, long sleeve top, ALDO oxfords and tried to look a little presentable with my MAC Ruby Woo lipstick.

This was the weekend before Halloween.  The night of Halloween was spent feasting on popcorn balls and caramel apples!

Absolutely ADORABLE!


And, I think that this one takes the award for The Best Worst Costume!
Still I laugh!

Music Monday: Electric Feel - MGMT(Preston Pohl cover)

I LOVED this version of MGMT's song, "Electric Feel"!

Julia Plus

Hey guys!  I recently repinned the following picture on Pinterest.

Then someone commented and asked where they could purchase the skirt.  So, naturally, I wanted to get the information for her and found the above photo in the company's Summer 2014 catalog.


I am definitely blown away by the collection, but I am even more in love with the styling!

The following items are my favorites of what is CURRENTLY available on the Julia Plus website:

This is the fourth time that I have made this green shake.  I don't know if I have mentioned this before, but I am trying to lose some weight and eat healthier.
My shake has 1 banana, 1 pink lady apple, 10 grapes, 1 cup of kale/spinach/chard mix, 1/2 cup parsley and 6 cups Langers pineapple juice.  

So yummy!

Are you trying to lose weight?  If so, what are you doing and what prompted your decision to do so?

Feeling Basic

Hey there strangers!

I know it has been forever since I have posted regularly.  It has been FOREVER forever since I have done an outfit post!

I rarely go anywhere anymore.  My oldest is in school, the youngest is at home with me during the week and I work every weekend.  My spare time involves cooking, cleaning, homework and NOW the gym.  So on the rare "occasion" that we go to the grocery store I try to jazz up a VERY basic outfit with some cute platform pumps.  My Nine West sandals were at the ready for when my feet couldn't take it anymore, which wasn't long.  My mommy uniform these days consists of Nike Shox, kitten heels, and those very Nine West sandals.  You guys- yall just don't know!  I have shoes that haven't been outside their box in over a year!!!

I gained every last bit of the 20 pounds that I lost last year back and I decided that it was time for a change.  I am on my 3rd week at the gym now.  I was really nervous at first because I thought I would hate it, but I actually love it!  I have seen a small change in the way my pants fit me and even a co worker said that my stomach went down a little.  These pants wouldn't even stay buttoned a month ago.

I lost 5 pounds and gained back 4 then lost 2 again. 

I know, I know.  

Apparently, I have probably been retaining a little water and building lean muscle at the same time. 

I don't know if anyone remembers, but I used to have long hair....

I lost my mind for 5 minutes after seeing Beyonce's new cut.

 I cut it myself.  It's longer in the back than in the front.  It was a disaster.  

Is there any bright side to this story?

Well, yeah.

I have been wanting to rock a curly fro for months, and NOW I CAN!
