Beer and Chicken Wings

Top: Forever 21
Skirt: Betsey Johnson (Fab EBAY purchase!)
Boots: Rue 21
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.

A Day Behind

Scarf: Gift from mother in law
Top: TJ Maxx
Pants: Old Navy
Boots: Payless
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!

So today is Friday, again. I wore my fab new boots today and I am so excited! They are so comfortable! Tomorrow I will be going to a fundraiser with my friend Sue. We are taking a couple of her curly horses with us. Hopefully I will have some pics to post! The fundraiser is for a lady who has been diagnosed with cervical cancer but has no insurance, and we all know how expensive medical treatment is in this country!

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

Jacket: Old Navy
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!

I have a cold

Sweater: forever 21
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!

Blouse: TJ Maxx
Belt: Rue 21
Jeans: Seven
Shoes: Manolo Blahnik
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!

Today was a nice day. It was cool and windy, but the sun was shining. Tomorrow is going to be in the mid 70's. My boss was admitted to hospital this afternoon (long story) and will be there for at least 24 hours. It's not life threatening he should be out by tomorrow or the weekend by the latest.

Today we had a lot of rain come through it was needed though, so i didn't mind. It actually got a bit chilly. I wish I had worn pants. On the bright side of things at least I didn't wear sandals!

Monday Again!!

Belt: Kohl's
Skirt: Walmart

I honestly do not know where the weekend went. Today when I got to work I decided that I would see if we had an internet connection, and we did! I was so happy I almost did a happy dance. I spent all day catching up on last week's work, as well as handling tasks for today. A very productive day all in all.

New Bag

Top: Gap
Pants: Old Navy
Boots: Nine West
Bag: TJ Maxx
I LOVE this bag! It's a gorgeous purple color. I am also on the look out for an emerald green bag. I am actually surprised you cannot see all the Walmart bags in the background (grocery shopping). Today was difficult because I use the internet a lot for my job. Somehow AT&T disconnected our internet. Three hour later they still couldn't get it back online. The tech is coming out tomorrow to fix it. At least I got to leave work early and get the grocery shopping done. one less job for the weekend!
