OOTD: 10/10/2015

     My first Outfit Of The Day post!  I wore this outfit shopping for fall essentials and Starbucks afterward with my hubby and kiddos.  I almost didn't wear it because it looks springy, but because it's still high 70's/low 80's I thought I could get away with it.  Also, it was raining and gloomy and I needed some sunshine! This outfit is not only comfy, but put together and girly too. I loved the color of the top and I felt like the layers camouflaged my not so favorite areas.  I added a little white lace cami underneath so I wouldn't flash people as I picked up merchandise from the bottom shelves{lol...You know what I'm talking about!}  I'm obsessed with this double strand pearl and crystal necklace that I bought on a whim.  I didn't think it was my style at first, but now I'm looking in my closet to see what else I can wear it with.  I'm a big fan of dark denim boot cut jeans and this pair is even better with the light blue/almost white thick stitching and back flap pockets.  They also have little crystal details near the front pockets.

     I woke up with a monster rumbling in my tummy, but what was I going to eat?  I looked through the cupboards, I looked through the fridge. Out of eggs, out of milk, out of bread. I really needed to go to the store!

     When I was younger, I practically lived there. I'm surprised they didn't start charging me rent.  My all time favorite memory was when my brother went with me for dinner one night. Our waitress asked who this handsome young man was sitting next to me. I told her it was my brother and she said, "Boy, if I was 20 years younger, you'd be in trouble!" The look on his face was priceless! That was the first and last time he went to Waffle House.  :)
     While I was reminiscing I realized that I actually had all the ingredients I needed to make what I would've ordered. And that meant I could stay in my pajamas just a little longer.
 My order:
     Coffee with cream and sugar
     Hash brown scattered, smothered, covered, and capped (with onions, cheese, and mushrooms)

I admit it,...

     I admit it,...I love Alternative music! Way up there, in the stations no one pays attention to, are my all time favorites.  When I'm vegging out at home on a Friday or while I'm cleaning, I turn on music choice channels 917 or 918.  I'm not familiar with a lot of the artists and I don't know the words to the songs ( yet :), ) but the music speaks to me.  It reminds me of the music they play in all the best movies either during a great flashback scene or while the credits are rolling.  (Am I the only one that sits there and wants to hear the song finish?)  It has so much emotion and stirs something within me I didn't know was there.  I love that you can hear the guitar and the honesty.  It puts a smile on my face.  It makes me want to dance around the living room with the vacuum and not care what anyone thinks. It makes me feel free and alive.  My only wish is that they had an Alternative radio station in my area.  I can imagine this music going great with my windows down and driving, the bright sun shining down on me while I think about how great this moment is.

New Years Resolutions

     Now that life has finally calmed down a bit I can share with you my New Years Resolutions.  I know that it's already a couple weeks into the new year but it takes me a while to make decisions. This is the first time I've made one of these lists and I wanted to do it right. I've put a lot of thought into it and I plan on completing everything! Ambitious, I know :)

So here it is!: (In no particular order :))

*  Get organized and stay that way! 

*  Complete the Fashion Retailing program. Seriously it's paid for and it's just been sitting here....since 2008.  I want to see a certificate with my name on it!

*  Eat healthier and move a little more. I'm trying to be realistic here. I know that if I say loose 20 lbs, it's probably not going to happen.  But I can try harder to ignore my sweet tooth when it's screaming for ice cream.  :)

*  Read more.  I love reading and getting lost in books, but I don't do it that often. Is that weird?  If you have any good book suggestions,  comment below :)

*  Cook more.  I'm a big fan of Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond and I got her second cookbook for Christmas. I want to make every recipe!

*  Try new things.  It's true what mom's say, "You never know until you try!"  Last year I tried California rolls at a Japanese restaurant and I watched The Hobbit. I thought I would hate both but I was pleasantly surprised.

*  Be the best wife and mother I can be.

*  Be myself.
