Another one you'll {hopefully} love...

Since I got such a great response last week, I thought that I would post again and try to post once a week an outfit that I feel I should bring attention too. Hopefully these will keep Stacy & Clinton away and not attrack them. I'm venturing outside of my comfort zone more and more, in hopes that I don't look so bland. Honestly a lot of my style changes are thanks to Ann Taylor Loft... I just love what they have to offer and if you switch things around a little you can come up with some awesome outfits.

So, for today, this is the outfit that I put together:

As posted on The Working Closet the site/group that I learned about from t.w.i.t. a little while back, above you have:
Shirt (orange): Ann Taylor Loft $9.99
Vest (dark denim): Ann Taylor Loft $4.88
Dress Pants (grey, Julie style): Ann Taylor Loft (maybe) $19.99 (in the spring)
Shoes: Steve Maddens, Chocolate with ruffle on toe $24.99
This my friends is yet another outfit that I'm sure my husband would probably not care for, but as I said before, I'm venturing outside of my comfort zone and think that this is really cute.

Oh and I wanted to show you what I did with my hair {that is in deperate need of getting cut & colored, both of which are taking place tomorrow}... It what everyone is doing and I've done it a number of times for volleyball games to help keep the bangs out of my eyes, but never at work.

Please ignore the ENORMOUS forehead that I'm sporting in this picture...



Cute, right? Well maybe not, but after tomorrow it might look better since this head of hair is just out of control.

So, hopefully next week I can come up with another cute outfit to post... until then.

Love the outfit...I need to venture out of my comfort zone more. I've never checked out Ann Taylor Loft...I'll have to!

The hair is cute. I've seen people do that a lot, but have absolutely NO idea how to even begin. ;)

sassy! my new rule, because i have a really bad shopping habit, is that i must be able to wear each piece as 3 different outfits. it is great for a few reasons, 1 being that it makes me really think about purchases and 2-it makes me try to stretch things and make up new outfits from pieces that i might not have put together before. pretty fun!!

i'm also a big atl fan...good thing i have to go to indy for it, otherwise it could be big trouble!

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
