Good Deeds

I love giving gifts and doing things for people. If I were a billionaire, I would be like Oprah… gifts for everybody!!!

Today I got to do a good deed. I was standing in line at Target and the little boy in front of me (probably around 11) was buying a backpack. The total came to $37.70 and I heard the boy shyly tell the cashier that he only had $36.00. So what did I do? I gave him the extra money so he could buy the backpack. If I were Oprah, I would have paid for him to go to college or something like that. But I don’t have that kind of money so $1.70 is what he got. I know it wasn’t much but it made me happy to get to do something nice for someone.

Date Night

 On Saturday, the hubby and I had a date night. And by date night, I mean we went to the movies and got ice cream after. We saw The Lucky One and loved it (Being that it is a chick flick, I’m sure I liked it a little more than the hubby did). I had read the book about a year or two ago and I love anything Nicholas Sparks so I kind of knew I would like the movie. Did anyone else see The Lucky One over the weekend?

Power Outage

I wore this outfit Friday and had planned on taking the pictures at a better location than my backyard, like the lake or vineyards by our house. But then there was a power outage so the hubby got called out to work to fix it so there went my big plans for pictures with a pretty background.We had to take these pictures really fast so he could get to work. We got them done in 2 minute! I believe that’s a record.

Leopard & Gold

I got this leopard belt in February and I absolutely love it! I want to wear it with every outfit. There is something about Leopard that just adds instant style to an outfit. I also love the gold detailing on this top. It takes an otherwise simple top and makes it feel a little more special.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
