more birthday fun

we had a family birthday party for me and my lil sis last night! My parents got me a webcam! Which will be handy when the husband is deployed. But I think they got it so they can see me and my growing belly as often as possible, haha.

I think today we're going to see "Tangled" it should be fun! I like light hearted movies!

I wish that blogger would stop making my photos so tiny!

hey hey it's my birthday!

well yesterday it was anyway! It was fabulous. Mr husband got me some gorgeous flowers!

aren't they purty?? And they even matched my outfit!

Then we went to eat at my favorite place here in Kansas! Bella Luna, it's a Mediterranean cafe, and it's delish.

I love my birthday :) I always get a little bit sad when it's over!

and now for some outfit photos!

I'm pretty sure the sun was in my eyes during the last photo?

forget Christmas! my birthday is almost here!

Just kidding. Christmas was wonderful (happy birthday to Jesus! woot woot)

Had such a fun Christmas here in Kansas, my mom made me a hand bag! and my grandma got me a mini Keurig! I was pretty thrilled.

In other news, I totally got knocked up! By Mr. Husband of course. I am 3 & 1/2 months now. we are supposed to find out what we're having soon.

This was definitely not planned... I have had a hard time accepting this actually, I'm trying not to feel like my life as an independent spirit is over. But I realize that everything happens for a reason, and God must think it's time for us to have a little monster! (yeah, I don't really like kids... everyone says it will be different with my own, let's hope)

It took me a while to announce this. Mostly because when I talk about it I feel like puking. Well I pretty much feel like that all the time now.

anyway, I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

p.s. What do you think it is, boy or girl? leave a comment with your guess

wreath making!

me and my friend Summer saw this idea on Etsy, so we made our own! She has a hot glue gun and I have some old books, so BAM. book wreaths! amazing

I think we could totally sell them on Etsy.

home for the holidays!

Yep, I was MIA.... again. We were lucky enough to go home for Thanksgiving :) so worth the 12.5 hour drive!
Have you all decorated for Christmas yet?? Me and my husband watch Elf, listened to Christmas music, and baked cookies..... after that we were in the Christmas spirit so we decorated.... BEFORE Thanksgiving. tragic, I know.

My hair is kind of at an awkward stage right now, so I tried out a different style last week! It was the first time I curled my hair since March, haha.

sheesh, I've been lacking in posts again lately. I've been feeling a little under the weather lately. 
But the good new is my last day at Forever 21 was Saturday! Sooooo glad I quit before the holidays. Or I would have been a major grinch! People are sooo rude during the holidays. It's rediculous! Isn't this supposed to be a joyous season??

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!

time for a freak out!

I can't find my camera battery anywhere and my camera is DEAD! ahhhhhh!
so that explains the lack of posts. I will do a post later with iPhone photos. not as good.

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!
