Not sure about this

Top: Walmart
Pants: Old Navy
Belt: EBAY

I love the earrings and the shoes. I am not so sure about the belt over the sweater. I think I looked better in my head. Maybe I just got the combination wrong. I am not completely happy with this look.

Oh Christmas Tree

The fruits of my labor last night. I decided to put the Christmas tree up. Everything on the tree is from The Dollar Store. We have had the lights for 7 years and they still work!! There is nothing worse or more frustrating than having your lights not work and having to go through all of the bulbs to find the dead one! Anyway here's to a Wonderful Holiday Season!!!!

Thanksgiving was a lot of fun, but tiring! Our friends have gone back to Alabama, and I finished my Christmas shopping today! Yay Me!!


I thought I would introduce you to my husband Ken. This was taken at the Riverwalk last Thursday, which is downtown.

This is not the outfit I wore for work today. Hubby suggested we go out for beer and chicken wings. who am I to refuse? I wanted to show everyone my new skirt! Isn't it cute? It's not the kind of thing I usually go for, but I love it! I'm not really a lace and bows girl, but I am very pleased with this purchase.

This is yeserday's outfit. I spent most of last night sorting out my closet. I will post photos when I have finished it! I was too tired to post, so I thought I would do it tonight. I got these boots from Payless about three years ago. I love them because not only are they warm, but they have gripped soles! They are also very comfortable for work. It was cold yesterday, hence the scarf which I wore in the office as it got a little chilly!

3. I love horses. I have been riding them since I was four years old.

4. I do not like to fly, and will only do so when I absolutely have to. even then I have to take something to calm me down. However, I think airplanes are fascinating.

5. I HATE peanut butter and marmite, Unfortunately for me my husband loves the first one and likes to chase me around with it.

Flu Shot

Top: Forever 21
Pants: Old Navy
Belt: Rue 21
Boots: Jessica Simpson
Today I got my flu shot. I got it last year and ended up getting the flu (a different strain). My doctor told me he also had the flu, apparently the shot was only 40% effective. However the CDC says they have it right this year. Let's hope they are right! Have you had yours yet?

Sunny and Mild

T Shirt: Walmart
Skirt: Walmart
Tights: EBAY
Boots: BCBG
Earrings: Forever 21
Today was a really pretty day. I had to leave work early because my husband forgot many of thethings that he needed for the football game tonight. I met him at the chiropractor as he has been having some pain in his shoulders and back. I don't like chiropractors myself. I have been to one myself many years ago when I lived in the UK. I had a bad riding accident and went to him to help relieve my pain, after seeing a doctor, neither of them had an x-ray done of my spine, which I found out later was fractured in 3 places. I guess I'm lucky I am still walking. Oh and he was french and rude, maybe that's just an English thing.

I haven't posted for a few days due to the terrible cold I have. I am feeling much better today, and am now in the coughing phase! It was cool and dreary today, so I decided to brighten things up with an orange skirt! I also wore my new leaf pendant from Forever 21, which I love!

Dress: GAP
Shoes: Manolo Blahnik
Belt: Hubby's
It was 82 degrees today, but I have a cold, hence the big sweater. I was hoping to finish early today, it being Columbus Day, but no such luck. I came home and slept for three hours and I feel a little better. Hopefully I will feel better still tomorrow! Bye for now Chicas!

Today was almost in the 80's. I like these jeans because they are smart enough for the office. I titled this post Uh OH because my husband called me this afternoon one of the s***'s at his school keyed his car across the hood, down the passenger side and across the trunk. I am really upset because firstly I bought him that car for his graduation. I shelled out $14,000 cash, and secondly it's an Audi TT Quattro convertible in black. My husband is absolutely furious! He loves that car and takes care of it so well. God knows how much a total repaint job will cost. But if he ever finds out who has done it I don't know what will happen. Hopefully we can find out who did this, have that person charged and make his parents pay for the damage. Other than that today was OK. I have to go now I am off to the football game! If we don't win this he'll be in a REALLY bad mood!

UPDATE: We lost 49-0. I mean come on people!!

And lastly!

My husband bought me these. Aren't they beautiful. I wasn't going to post them. But they are so beautiful I just had to share. He loves me :)

Nice and Warm

T-shirt: Old Navy
Vest: Kohls
Skirt: Vera Wang
Shoes: Steve Madden
Necklace: EBAY
Today did not start off well. My alarm did not go off and I woke up at 9 am, hence the bad hair and the glasses. Then I forgot my lunch! On the up side my necklace arrived from EBAY the photo does not do it justice! My boss will be in hospital for a few more days. He sounds a little better than he did yesterday but he needs to rest and he is in the right place. He'll be fine. Hopefully he will be out of hospital by Tuesday or Wednesday. That's all for now!
