It's finally autumn!

Yep! And I'm sure everyone who doesn't live in the desert is like...."um Leah.... it's been fall for a while now"
but you are WRONG. Ok that was a little harsh. But here in Hell Paso, we are just now getting fall weather! I can wear leggins and scarves to my hearts content.

double chin cuteness

I don't have a very good picture taking set-up. I put it on self timer and then go pose, but the closest thing to set the camera on is my computer table, which is lower than me.... So every time I take photos I have a double chin! ew. it just shows up! I always go and look in the mirror frantically afterwards to make sure it's not there at eye level! hahah.

anyway, there's my story for the day.

I love the sleeves on this blouse, they're so flowy, the flutter when I'm walking.

I really need a tripod.

cats and dogs.

So, we have a cat and a dog. We have had Isis(cat) for a year and 1/2. But we just got Jasper(dog) this summer. I always dreamed of having a golden retriever and couldn't wait for the day when I had a cute doggy curled up on the couch with me. Well now that day is finally here............and he's DRIVING ME CRAZY.

I think I have discovered I am a cat person. I just had to get that out.

oh geez.

this weekend was pretty dramatic, sorry for the lack of posts!
Thought I would do a Halloween costume post! I dressed up as a "stereo type army wife"
Hey, I thought it was pretty darn funny.

believe or not, this is how 90% of army wives really are. Haha.
I will never understand the fascination with army gear

theme theme theme

I HATE theme days at work. last saturday we had to wear PINK. and this saturday we had to wear either black and orange or black and purple. of course... I have no orange or purple. This is the only thing I could find.

maybe they will stop having theme days?

blue suede....skirt?

I recently went on a little shopping spree Forever 21. It's so hard to work there and not spend money! ugh.
this fabulous teal suede skirt was one of my favorite purchases! It took me a while to style it though. the color of it doesn't go with a lot of my tops..... guess I will have to go shopping again soon ;)

and the lost was found

YEP! I found my camera battery! I was so relieved. whew. I don't know how I would live without my camera!
but the bad news is, now I don't have my precious iPhone! *tear* someone at work STOLE it! bitches.
ugh. I swear, this weekend has not been the best.
But it wasn't all bad! Me and Mr. Husband both had Friday off! so we did a little shopping and I priced cameras! holding the Canon Rebels and the made my dream feel so....real. ok ok.....I'll stop being cheesy.

the theme for work the other day was "pink". and I HATE pink. I always have.... I don't know what is wrong with me. I think it was because I was the only girl until I was like 13. Even all my cousins were boys... so I was spoiled, and always dressed in pink..... and ruffles..... you know, the dreaded ruffle panties. nightmares.
so this is what I wore... and you know what they said? that's not PINK enough! I bought a $4 hot pink t-shirt. And I don't have photos of it...........I um.... forgot?

something was missing... so I added the belt!

I didn't go all out for the theme. Frankly I really didn't care...

yep, pretty boring. I take my job very seriously! haha

florals and cognac are my favorites for fall! I wish I could wear my cognac heeled boots to work! but they would kill my feet! ugh. I don't know how some women (and men?) can wear heels all day! I would die.

In other news. Me and Mr. Husband will be moving again, did I already tell you this? anyway... we're off to North Carolina this time! can't wait to get out of Hell Paso. BUT we're moving in the middle of a semester AGAIN. I swear... I'm never going to be able to go to college! after my bad experience with "the art institute of pittsburgh" I'm afraid of online school.

we will see what happens!

p.s. Look how long my hair is getting! woot woot.

(after seeing these photos I wish I would have just worn my cognac boots! I could have suffered through it? beauty is pain, right?)

change of weather?

well, the weather is still getting cooler! day by day by day by day (meet the parents, anyone?)
For some reason the change in weather is making my skin act up! took me forever to get my make-up just right today... and my face is all puffy this week! so weird.
good news, this week I have worked out 4 times already! mr husband (who is in the army...and a work out guy) told me that to see results I should work out 5-6 times a week! ugh. I'm shooting for 5 :p
I have been alternating the "30 day shred" with running/walking on the treadmill. every other day! It's been working really well with my schedule too!

new scarf!

yeah, I get excited about scarves. I thrifted this one in Denver :) I have to admit, I never actually wore this outfit out. haha. my plans got cancelled.
also I tried to many different camera angles and poses and the lighting was super weird this time of day or something. none of my photos turned out right! oh well.

I have been dealing with a major lack of inspiration lately! I want to go on a Forever 21 shopping spree for fall soooo badly! I think I need some new pieces to spice up my wardrobe.
It's hard to dress for the weather here lately, I keep thinking it's going to get cooler but then it ends up being high 80s. ugh!

all natural

I love having my hair back to my natural color, it looks so much better and healthy than colored! My coloring days are over for sure.
Today at work we are supposed to wear "coco sport" theme clothing. like teeny bopper stuff. high tops, neon colors, 80's inspired, black.
and guess who has none of the above? ME.
so I'm going to work early today so I can buy a stupid shirt to wear. Hopefully I can find something that I will wear more than once :p

but for now this is what I have on, and there are some photos of my headband. because I like it.

30 day shred

yep, I'm doing the Jillian Michael's 30 day shred. and it's killer! I'm so sore today.
today is my second day. but I am going to Kansas for my grandparent's 50th wedding anniversary party in a couple of weeks and I would like to lose 5 more lbs before then!

I know it's hard to imagine, but in 2 weeks my muscles will be even bigger

so, here's to 5 lbs!
