Gangsta

I’m feeling pretty gangsta (true gangsters don’t pronounce the ‘er’) in this outfit. Why? Because of my gold chain necklace, of course! Or as the hubby likes to call it, my gangsta necklace.  My mom said I just need a mohawk and I could pass for Mr. T. To be honest, I do like a good Eminem or Nelly song and when you add in this necklace, I am a pretty legitimate gangsta. Don’t all gangstas wear leopard heels??

Suede Shoes

Note to self: Don’t wear suede shoes when walking in a dry field of grass and weeds. Your shoes will become covered in stickers and weeds. Not fun!

P.S. Thank you Sister for letting me borrow this skirt 🙂

What’s In My Shoe?

So I’m walking around in these shoes when all of a sudden, I feel something inside the shoe touching my foot. My first thought is…SPIDER! (I have this fear of spiders in my shoes. I’m pretty sure that’s where they like to hang out when they aren’t in their web). I quickly fling off my shoe and see something fall to the ground. I slowly move closer to inspect the situation. Turns out it was just a penny. Good news, there’s no spider living in my shoe and I am one cent richer. Really, could you ask for a better day?

P.S. Thanks Sister for letting me borrow your top 🙂

*Rememeber the baseball tee I wore in Monday’s post? It’s now available online here 🙂

Flare Jeans

I love flare leg jeans and think everyone should own a pair. Now I am going to convince you to get yourself some 🙂 

  1. Worn with heels, they give the illusion of longer legs. Who doesn’t want that?
  2. Balances out a curvy figure.
  3. You don’t have to worry if your shoes match because nobody will see them. (my favorite reason for wearing flares)

If you still aren’t convinced, click here for more flare jean inspiration.

Ok, now start shopping!

When Nightmares Come True

You know that horrible nightmare where your husband comes home with home decor that he would like to hang around the house? Well, that nightmare came to life for me.

Normally, I like the hubby’s taste in decoration. We even had a conversation the other day about how we want our house to have a country/garden feel to it (right now it’s a little more on the western side). Then the hubby comes home with “treasures” (his words not mine). He “scored” five pieces of “artwork” from a coworker for free. You can’t pass up a deal like that, right? Well, you can when the artwork is framed pictures of ducks, wolves, deer, ect. I hate it! I told the hubby, there’s a reason his coworker had to get rid of the “artwork” and that reason  is that he just got married and his wife doesn’t want it in her house. So why would I want it in mine?! The pictures definitely don’t fit in the country/garden theme. Goodness gracious…men!

Take Me Out To The Ball Game

Wearing this tee makes me feel the need to go to a baseball game. First, I just need to find a team whose colors are pink and sparkle and I’ll be their biggest fan. I’d cheer them on at all their games. I also need to get some knowledge on how the game is played so I know what I’m cheering for. But really how important is it to know the rules to the game? I know all the words to baseballs theme song “take me out to the ball game” and I have a baseball tee so I think I’ve got the main things covered.

Sister Perks

What is one of the perks to having a sister (other than having a best friend for life)? Getting to share clothes, of course! I stole (well, borrowed but I plan on never giving them back) five skirts from my sister last weekend. And this skirt happens to be one of them. Don’t you just love it? I’m trying to convince my sister that she should just give it to me but haven’t had much luck yet. I’m thinking that if everyone comments telling her that she needs to give it to me, she might give in to peer pressure. So come on, help a gal out and convince my sister that this skirt should be mine 🙂

P.J. Days and Winner

You know how you have those days where you just can’t find anything to wear and wish you could just stay in your p.j.’s all day? Well, pretty much all of August and most of September is like that for me. I am just so over the heat and ready for fall. But mother nature hasn’t listened to me so far when I tell her fall should start on August 1st. So I have resorted to wearing clothes that feel like p.j.’s while I wait for fall to get here.

The winner of the of the Bubble Necklace Co. Giveaway is…Jamie Lee! Congrats girlie! Email me to claim your prize 🙂

Hog Heaven

I spent my Labor Day weekend in hog heaven! I’m talking literally…I was surrounded my a bunch of Piggs. It is how I have spent every Labor Day and it is always a blast!

I feel it is time that I admit to you all that I am a Pigg. It’s not that I’m a sloppy eater (although I am. See here) but that my dad’s mom’s maiden name is Pigg. And every Labor Day weekend about 50 of us Piggs gather at my uncle’s cabin on the Trinity River for our family reunion. We spend the weekend lounging by the river, playing on the volleyball court or in the apple orchard, floating/rafting down the river, and eating bacon. Yes, we Piggs love bacon 🙂 It really was a glorious weekend in Hog Heaven!
