Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween Everyone!
We are celebrating by going to the gym, turning off our porch light, and watching Dexter.
(No kids ever come to our street so we have given up buying candy)
Hope everyone has a happy and safe holiday!

First Day of Vacation

This weekend I'm off on vacation with my mom and sister in Cambria.
And since this is posting on Saturday, but I wrote it on Thursday, I'm going to guess that I'm having a great time!
For the drive there, I wore this interesting little number.
I wanted to be comfy hence the leggings, but also I wanted to be cute.
And you know...a bit weird.
It is me after all.



I shouldn't be allowed to take my own photos.

Two For the Price of One

Mike looked extra cute yesterday.
So I forced him to be part of my outfit post.
Especially since I wore a pretty boring outfit.
But, I told you polka dots match everything so...expect to see them a lot.
Also, how cute is my husband?!
Enjoy your two for the price of one shoddy outfit photos!

I Heart My Body 2012

I stumbled upon the I Heart My Body 2012 Link Up last night via two of my new favorite bloggers.
And I couldn't resist linking up.
So here goes.

"Body love" to me is a rough thing.
I'm pretty hard on myself.
I wrap myself pretty tightly in the comforting blanket of humor and embracing the word chubby.
Which I'm not really.
But sometimes I can't see anything else but chubby when I look in the mirror.
So I self-deprecate and joke and eat some cheese and call it a day.
But, in the honor of the I Heart My Body 2012 Link Up, here are three things I like about my body:

My boobs.  I mean really, these things rock (thanks mom).
My eyes.  Does that count?  Eyelashes too.  I get a lot of random compliments on my eyelashes.
My legs.  The more I get into running, the stronger and firmer they get and I love every inch of them.


So, be nice to your body today lovelies.
Look in the mirror and find something...or three things...to love about yourself.
And then have some damn cheese anyways.

Want It Wednesday

It's Wednesday today!
Which is confusing because I have off of work until Monday.
But yeah for all you sad people, it's Wednesday.
HA!
(I'm so sweet)
This Wednesday I am wanting pretty hard a perfect little Cape Cod with the forest in the back and room for a boat and a finished basement and tons of land for the pups to run on.
Like this one.
Want to buy it for me?
Please?


(Also I want my hair back.  Why the hell did I cut it off?!)

Chambray (And Also That Skirt Is So Tight It Makes Me Physically Ill)

Everyone should own a chambray shirt.
It should be a law.
Dudes, chicks, old people, babies, everyone.
I wear mine A LOT.
Casual, work, over leggings, over dresses, you name it.
Today, I wore it with a skirt that is so tight, it makes my organs hurt.
But I looked cute.
I mean, not in these pictures, but in reality.
At least I think I did.
Anyways, go buy a chambray shirt.
Now.


Such a pleasant face in this photo...

Scenes From Our Sunday

Do you have any idea how awesome it is to have a weekend with no homework?
It's super awesome.
Add to that that your boss ends up being too busy to need you to come in on Sunday.
And this is what our lovely little Sunday looked like.

Mike ironed.

Hmmm what to clean next?

I made french toast.
I got to cook for Mike, for once!

This is how we chill our champagne...

He really wanted some french toast

Breakfast while we watch HGTV...we're old people.

I looked homeless all morning.  And like a dude.  A homeless dude.
Tuffy is the best beggar ever

Adult sized mimosas

We did eventually shower, leave the house, do some organizing at my mom's, make dinner, and like you know, act like "normal" people, but that morning...oh that was a good Sunday morning.

High Five For Friday

I started writing this post on Sunday of last week because I was in such a good mood.
And as I write this right now (Thursday night) I'm STILL in a good mood.
I mean...I'm not going to lie...there have been some bad moods in between, but this has been a pretty darn good week.
Here are my 5 favorite things about it!









(1)  The obligatory autumn blogger outfit and then I didn't blog about it.  But I felt very bloggery and very autumny all day.
(2)  Boots!  The first day back in boots!  It's very hard to deal with how much I hate wearing jeans, but love wearing those damn boots.
(3)  Oktoberfest and goober Oktoberfest shirts.
(4)  Quilt season is finally here.
(5)  Accepted for graduation.  Wahoo!

The Little Things

Sometimes, all it takes to make a perfect little night

Is a pair of jean shorts that are a size too big to make you feel smaller


A happy little shirt


A walk in the park

An updated spreadsheet

And dogs wrapped in quilts handmade by your mother-in-law




It really is the little things
