A Super Hero’s Secret Weapon

My outfit holds a secret weapon and I bet you would never figure out what it is…my necklace is a pencil!!! You don’t consider a pencil, a weapon? Well, it is to me. I could just be going around, writing secret notes to people all day and nobody would even know it. If that’s not the coolest secret weapon, then I don’t know what is. I’m basically at super hero status with this necklace on. I just need a super hero name. Like, The Wild Writer. Ok, maybe my name needs a little work but I think I’m really onto something here.

P.S. This necklace was my great great aunt’s. She was a librarian (a super hero librarian) and used to wear this necklace to work everyday.

Black and Brown

This outfit is dedicated to my friend Jordan. She has great style and I love going shopping with her. But the one trend you won’t catch her in is black and brown together. So when I put on these brown shoes with this black romper, I thought of her and how she would never pair the two. And since I know she follows my blog, I had to give a shout out to her. You know what I just thought of, I wonder if she likes leopard print since it’s black and brown. I will have to ask her. Love you Jordan! 🙂
P.S. I copied this look from Christina at Oh So Glam. Thanks for the style inspiration, Christina!

You taught me honesty and intergrity, how to treat others with diginity and respect, money managment skills, and how to ride a quad and swing dance.

Crazy Lady

You might remember from this post that I don’t like wearing dresses. But today, I went a little crazy and decided to wear a dress. Although, I think most people thought I was crazy not for wearing a dress but for wearing a scarf in 98 degree weather. I don’t think they understood the importance the scarf played in pulling the outfit together.

P.S. My mom came to visit me for a few days! Yay!!!

Big Brown Eyes

I used to think I had big eyes. I would always hear the expression “big brown eyes” and I thought “I have brown eyes so my eyes must be big too” and I never gave much thought to the possibility that the statement might not apply to all people with brown eyes. But apparently, it does not apply to me.

I was talking to one of my friends and out of nowhere she said “Kacie, you kind of have small eyes.” I tried to play it off like she didn’t just burst my bubble and said “I know.” I thought maybe she just had bad eyesight so later I asked my mom and sister if they thought I had big eyes, they chuckled and said no. So here is a warning to all you brown eyed people out there, just because your eyes are brown, it does not necessarily mean your eyes are big. It is time for me to face this sad truth.

For our anniversary weekend, the hubby and I headed to Capitola/Santa Cruz. The weather was perfect and we had a great time! We got there Friday morning and walked around downtown Capitola and relaxed on the beach. On Saturday, Capitola had their annual car show so the hubby had fun drooling over all the cars he wants. Overall it was a great anniversary weekend 🙂

P.S. My camera battery died so we took these photos on my phone.

Poor Doggie

My poor bulldog, Tugg, had to go to the vet yesterday to get neutered. We decided to get him neutered because around this time every year, he gets an allergic reaction which irritates his “man business”. This year was the worse and you could tell he was miserable. I dropped him off at the vets office and as they were taking him in the back, he turned around, gave me the saddest look ever and tried to follow me out the door. I felt like a parent would feel when they drop their child off for the first day of kindergarten. (I don’t have children so my doggies are my kids). It was just heartbreaking. Now he is back from the vet and resting. Poor guys had a traumatic experience.

Festivities

The weekend was full of wedding festivities for my sister’s upcoming nuptials. The hubby and I headed up to our home town on Friday where he spent four days on a house boat celebrating the bachelor party. The hubby and my sisters soon-to-be hubby have been best friends since third grade so it is perfect that soon they will be brother-in-laws. While the boys were on the lake, we had my sisters bridal shower and her second bachelorette party. The bridal shower was beautiful and we had a great time visiting with friends and family. We had a blast at the bachelorette party with ten of our best friends. Overall, a great weekend!
