You might remember my post Life of the Mint Jeans, where I told the story of the short life of my mint jeans and what led to their destruction. They put up good fight the whole way through but sadly, they didn’t make it to the end as mint jeans.

Well, here they are reincarnated as lime green shorts! Yes, these are the same bottoms just with a whole new look! Hopefully their life as lime green shorts will last longer then their life as mint jeans.

If you are dying to destroy your mint jeans and make them into lime green shorts, just follow the steps in this post to create the look 😉

Dear Denim Vest,
I have been searching for you for a few months and I am so happy to have you in my life. You came along and suddenly, everything in my closet seems a little better. The dresses that I never wore because they felt too dress-y for me have found new life thanks to you. I know we will make some great memories together. You are my “vest” friend! (get it? I know, I’m so clever)
Love Always, Kacie

Tennis: Not As Easy As It Looks

The other day the hubby and I were bored and trying to find something to do. We came up with the great idea of getting some Tennis Lessons. First step: Buy tennis rackets. Second Step: Buy me a tennis skirt. You have to look the part to play the part, right? The hubby didn’t agree so we skipped this step. Third Step: Learn how to play tennis. That proved a little harder than we thought. The hubby asked if I knew how to play. I said you just let the ball bounce and then hit it. (I later learned their are other rules and you don’t always have to let the ball bounce first). Needless to say we weren’t very good (I may or may not have gotten a ball to the chin).

While my mom was visiting, her and I played tennis. She actually had a clue what she was doing so she taught me a few things. I’m pretty much a pro now. The next time the hubby and I play, he is going down!

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.

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.

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.

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!

Scary Movies

 Last weekend the hubby and I went to the movies and watched Chernobyl Diaries. Let me just tell you, I hate scary movies! It’s not that I get super scared while I’m watching them; it’s that I’m scared for a week after. I’m a big scaredy cat as it is (I don’t even answer the door when I’m home alone) and when you throw in a scary movie with crazy murderers, there is no way I’m going to stay calm. Every little noise I hear is the murderer from the movie coming to find me and kill me. Although I have to say, Chernobyl Diaries wasn’t as scary for me because it’s about zombies and I don’t think that zombies will come after me…but you never know 😉

Dog Walks

 Now that the weather is nice, I started taking my dogs for a walk every morning. And let me tell you, I am so sore! I’ve worked muscles I didn’t even know I had. There is some side butt muscle that now hurts when I walk. It’s not like I am completely out of shape. I workout five times a week for at least an hour. But that didn’t prepare me for a 70lb lab and 63lb bulldog pulling on me the entire walk. The neighbors just chuckle at the site of two dogs pulling me along. And they often comment that it looks more like the dogs are taking me for a walk than me talking the dogs for a walk.

We live by a bunch of vineyards with a canal running through so I thought I could walk there and let the dogs run around. That way, they wouldn’t pull as hard on the way back. And although it was a good thought, it didn’t quit work. The bulldog, Tugg, was worn out but our lab, Skip, still had plenty of energy to pull me all the way home. And still I will get up and do it all again tomorrow because the doggies just love there walks. I mean, how could you say no to these faces?

Let me introduce you to my new favorite necklace. I got this necklace about a week ago and can’t quit wearing it. I love it! I think a pop of neon yellow adds a fun touch to just about any outfit.

Also, this might be my favorite blazer. The only reason  I say “might” is because I’m also really loving this blue blazer too and of course the lace blazer I featured in my last post. Basically, all blazers are my favorite. You really can’t have too many blazers. It’s just not possible.
