Printed Palazzo

I came across these adorable palazzo pants the other day at Target and couldn't keep myself from buying them. This is my first time wearing them and I'm not totally convinced I can pull off the look, but I tried! I absolutely love the pattern and hope that I will gain some confidence in these pants the more I wear them!

If you have been toying with the idea of purchasing palazzo pants, I suggest you try on many different types before you give up! There are baggier ones than these, skinnier legged ones, etc. I took 5 different styles of palazzo pants in the dressing room before I fell in love with these beauties. Maybe you won't like any, but make sure you give different styles a try!

I love the look of palazzo pants. And I wish they loved me back.

Newest Painting

I got an order last week for a dear friend. How adorable is this quote!? Absolutely reminds me of my best friend!

I can't decide if I want to make this as a listing on Etsy or just share it and maybe get some custom orders.. What do you guys think?

DPD Graduation

David has finally graduated from the Dallas Police Academy, woo hooooooooooo!!! Both his family and my family came to down for the festivities. Thursday was the badge pinning ceremony - this is when each recruit has a loved one (or officer) pin their official badge on them! I was so honored to be selected by David to be his pinner :) It was a cute and intimate ceremony - only his parents, sister and I were there.

On Friday was another ceremony where all of his family and friends were invited to! His class marched in and did all there police-y things, we watched a video that reflected on their time at the academy and listened to a few speeches. I am so proud and excited for him, while terrified at the same time! He will be fighting bad guys on the streets and hopefully staying safe. I don't know what I would do without him. He's my po-po hero.

I'm Back to Blogging!

Oh hello, blogosphere! Long time, no see. The last two weeks have been a WHIRLWIND so now that I have some downtime, I can finally do some updating!

David and I traveled to Searcy, Arkansas last weekend to visit my younger sister at school. She was in a musical (of sorts) called Spring Sing and we went to support her. I hadn't seen my family since Christmas and was incredibly excited to see them!! My youngest sister, Haley, is my world and my mini-me <3 Here are a ton of outfits from Spring Sing weekend and some places in between:

Etsy Updates

I have had a few Etsy orders lately and here are the latest:

This was a custom order for a sweet lady who wanted a inspiring message shown in her home and bible study.


This was a custom order from a special someone... My husband! Haha, never thought I would see the day! He is about to graduate from the Dallas Police Academy and wanted this quote design. Both symbolize police officers.

Please visit and like my Facebook page to see all of my work and my Etsy shop to place and order. Feel free to send me messages or inquiries on either platform!

What is blogging? I don't even know anymore....

HELLO, WORLD! I have been long gone and am here for a little outfit update!
