Insta Love

I have been so awful at blogging lately - what's new? That is probably because of my recent love for Instagram... I obsessed! It' just so easy to take, upload and edit pictures on there rather than taking out my digital and trying to prop it up and take selfies. Ghetto, I know. Here are a couple looks from this week via insta:

Saturday Night

Last night, some friends took me and David to Dave and Busters - it was our first time! It was a lot of fun. We got pizza beforehand at Union Bear in Uptown and was delish! Then we headed over to D&B for a night of childish fun. We had never been there so we didn't really know what to expect but it is exactly like what you hear - a Chuck E Cheese for adults. I beat David in a basketball game so that was probably the highlight of my night. Oh yeah!



 (Absolutely in love with this new crystal bow bracelet)

Floral Friday

I am busy blogging on a Friday night and I am A.O.K. with it! This week has been incredibly busy, with David and I having opposite schedules so I am definitely soaking in the semi-quiet time (the dogs are going crazy). Here is my floral outfit of the day... Is it spring yet!?

PS - When I got home, I figured out that I was wearing the skirt backwards all day, LOL. I just automatically put it on with the zipper in the back. No wonder the pockets were in such an awkward spot.. Whoops.

I painted my nails last night and took this picture with Tank sleeping this morning. The color is NYC Pretty Pink!




Top: Old Navy {here}
Watch: Michael Kors {here}
Skirt: Forever 21 {here}
Tights: Target
Heels: Payless

This may be more casual of a look, but perfect for a Friday! I just bought the sweater and skirt the other day and I truly love them! The polka-dot sweater can go with absolutely anything and the floral skirt will work perfectly in the spring and even in this freezing 25 degrees!

Behind on Blogging...

I have been ridiculously busy with work and trying to spend time with my husband and puppies! Poor Tank is caged up for majority of the day.. I always feel so bad for him but there isn't much you can do when they are puppies! Anyways, I'm exhausted. Tomorrow is Friday - OH YEAH!! Here are some of my outfits this week:

Football Sunday

My husband is a huge fan of the Patriots and unfortunately, their season is over - RIP. We had just a few people over to the apartment to watch the game and eat some pizza. Other than that, we had church this morning, cleaned up the apartment, and have small group later!

Hope everyone is having a happy Sunday!
Who else is getting a three day weekend?!

Oxford Booties

CHEERS TO THE FREAKIN' WEEKEND!!

First off, this is what I saw when I first woke up.. This little sleepy head. Not exaggerating, he likes to sleep in more than I do! He is adorable and it is so difficult to wake him up, especially when I want to be sleeping too!



In other news, today was such an insightful day at work. I did some researching on venues and planners in the area and updated our database but then I got to go to my first site survey! A site survey is when you meet the client/planner/venue coordinator and do a walk through of the venue and talk about ideas and visions so you can all get on the same page. It was a lot of fun and I can't wait to be doing it on my own!!

And now I am ready for some take out and a relaxing night.


(Sooooo in love with these new Oxford booties! I have wanted them for a while and they were finally on sale at Payless AND they had my size.. It was meant to be)

Contrasts

Today was a long day at the office, but I loved it! Going from staying at home with the puppies and painting all day to dressing up in business attire and going into the office is such an opposite schedule. I'm not complaining, just saying! I love what I am doing and I hope that after my training, I get hired full time!

Funny story about today... An elderly, toothless, born and raised Texan came to our office to sell organic hybrid fruit. No joke. There were "grape pears" and "lemon grapefruit" and all kinds of things! Some were delicious, some were... Not pleasing my taste buds. Nevertheless, unique concept.

Working Girl!

Today was a very exciting day!! I started out training with an amazing company. After the training, I will be re-evaluated and then given a position at the company or let go. Let's hope that the former is in the future!! I don't want to get too excited because you never know what is going to happen, but I'm hoping this is a career step for me and as soon as I know more, I will inform the world wide web!! Here is what I wore on my first day of training:

Cherry on Top

Happy Tuesday! Today I got the chance to have lunch with Sarah Davis, the blogger of Workday.Weekend. What a lovely gal! Truly though, she is a sweet and beautiful woman who I admire. Check out her blog if you don't already!

The rest of my day involves shipping out a painting, some other rando errands and a dinner double date with some friends from our small group! I'm excited.

Weekend Rewind | Part 2

Saturday I went to brunch with some girls from our small group. It was surprisingly fun! I carpooled with two other girls and it was a 30 minutes drive there so we had some time to get to know each other. Then David took me to the mall [insert in love/heart eyes emoji] to go shopping for some interview outfits. We had no luck at the mall but Target hit the spot, as always! After the mall, we headed over to our friends' apartment to watch the Patriots game - that is David's team if you didn't know. I couldn't even tell you who they were playing because I was busy doing this...


And busy wearing this..

Weekend Rewind

This was one of the first weekends where David and I were nonstop busy. Since he has such a busy schedule, our Saturdays usually consist of being lazy or being outside with the pups. However, this weekend was different..

Friday, we got invited to go eat with some DPD couples and go bowling! We went to Bob's Steakhouse - very expensive but very delicious - and bowling at Bowl and Barrel. At Bob's we were expecting the high prices but Bowl and Barrel had unforeseen prices! We have been there a few times during the week and it's about $12 per person for an hour of bowling on one lane. Okay, that works. But they conveniently forgot to inform us that it cost more than four times that on Fridays and Saturdays. Our whole party of 8 was furious. That might be okay for some people but spending that amount on bowling is absurd to us. I'm getting mad just thinking about it! Needless to say, we reamed them on social media and will never refer them to anyone and will definitely not ever be back on a weekend!

Navy Dress and Layered Necklace

Today was a wonderful day filled with church, shopping and small group! I have a "job interview" with a blogger Tuesday so I obviously needed to get something new to wear! I got a sweater and a skirt.. Now to decide which one to wear!

In other news, I am feeling remarkably blessed lately. I just want everyone to take a minute and think about all the absolutely amazing things they have in their life!

 (Don't know why the picture is so tiny and blurry - I'm sorry!!)

I'll have to update the blog tomorrow with my weekend outfits but for now, enjoy! Hope you had a wonderful weekend.

Finished Paintings

Finished up two orders today! One is for a friend in Dallas, and one is for a friend back home in Florida. So happy I can share my talents with the world. I truly love painting and I wish I could make it a career someday...

Or become a successful fashion blogger!

Mixed Prints

Today is a freezing day in Dallas (along with the rest of the world). The wind chill seriously makes it feel like 20 degrees.. Guess I shouldn't be complaining since most states are supposed to be in the single digits tomorrow - eek! 

I am thankful for another day of worship on this sunny and chilly day. With all the holidays and traveling, along with a nice storm, our small group hasn't met in a few weeks and I'm excited that we are back on tonight!

 (The puppies wouldn't let me take a picture without them!)

A Lovely Lunch

Yesterday I went to lunch with some Dallas academy wives/girlfriends. It was the first time I hung out with just the girls and it was really fun to be in a gathering where there wasn't incessant "cop talk." ;) We went to a place I had never been to or heard of - Zoe's Kitchen - and it was delicious!! If you have one near you, check it out! It's like Panera Bread where they have sandwiches, soups and salads and you can do that half-and-half deal. Really though, GO!
