Indiana Jones?

I've been told I look like Indiana Jones in this hat.  

Confession....I've never even watched an Indiana Jones movie.

Nude Heels

Shirt & Pants:  JCPenney, Shoes:  ShoeDazzle

My search for a good pair of nude heels has been going on for quite a while.  I would of never imagined finding them for $15 from ShoeDazzle through a Google ad.  I was just roaming around on Yahoo one Saturday when I noticed one of those ads on the side of your screen read '$15 Shoes'. Of course, I couldn't help put click on that pretty little ad and was redirected to ShoeDazzle. Best decision I ever made.

Ross: Remember Andrea Rich?
Chandler: That tall girl that wouldn't sleep with you?
Ross: Uh huh. Well, her internet company went under and she lost an ear in a boating accident.
Chandler: Bet she'd sleep with you now.
Ross: Nah, I already emailed her

Weekend Alone

Shirt & Jeans:  Thrifted, Shoes:  F21, Necklace:  JCPenney
Danny is gone all weekend for a Bachelor Party (yes, all weekend and no, it is not his).  The invitation stated to bring your own booze, guns and four wheeler's.   Good combination, right? Let's pray that he will make it back alive.

Cannot put into words how much I love this dress.  It is young and fun but also work appropriate.  And the best part......wait for was under $10!

Decision Making

DIY Polka Dot Shirt, Jeans:  NY&C, Necklace:  JCPenney
The necklace above was a hard decision.  I probably stood at the jewelry stand at JCPenney for 10 minutes before I decided on buying that necklace.  Money wasn't the issue as it was pretty cheap but the fact of 'do I really need it?'. I have been asking myself that question a lot lately.  

Grocery stores are the worst.  I look and look and look and look at the chocolate cakes and donuts and all things yummy but always end up walking away.  They even make it in my cart, go around the store with me for awhile but end up back on the shelf.  

There are so many 'wants' in my life but what do I really 'need'?

Weekend Recap

Yes, that is a trailer with chairs.  Redneck Limousine!


This 4th of July is one that I will never forget.

ALL of the family showing up to celebrate Grandpa Fred's 85th Birthday.  Man, the food was good!

Taking our normal caravan golf cart ride but with a special redneck twist this year (this will be a new tradition!).

Seeing a fish hook go straight through someones thumb with no way of getting out (always a hospital trip on the 4th of July).

Getting my FIRST tan line of the summer.

After 5 years, Leo has finally snapped at somebody.  Unfortunately, it was a family member.

Laughing so much, I could of peed my pants.

Seeing my sexy husband play music.

A new generation setting off the fireworks (good job baby!).

For once in my life after 4 days of being gone, I was NOT ready to go home.

My Wedding Earrings

So I had this vision for my wedding earrings.  Emerald is my birth stone and I wanted it incorporated with the setting as a tear drop.  I looked and looked and looked and didn't find exactly what I was looking for.  My moto is.....when all else fails, make your own.  Why not? Cheaper, more personal and the best part is, I get exactly what I want.

All of the supplies came from Etsy and things that I already had at home. Total of $17.00.

Black & White

Sweater:  F21, Shorts:  NY&C, Shoes:  Charlotte Russe

Sometimes it is sad for me to realize how boring of a life that I actually have.  Today at work I got asked what I did this weekend.  After thinking back, it went a little something like this.

Friday - Got home from work and watched a little bit of Real Housewives New Jersey.  Danny got home so we went outside and he trimmed all of our bushes while I raked up the pieces.  In bed by 10 p.m.

Saturday - Took a trip to an Antique Mall and Walmart.  Went out to dinner with my Dad at a new restaurant and then just went home and chilled with the dogs.  In bed by midnight.

Sunday - Danny woke me up at NOON Sunday morning!  I made lunch, cleaned the house, hung some laundry, watched 'Identity Thief' (awful movie) and rearranged some shelves.

I live such an exciting life!
