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!

The Emmy's!

did anyone else watch? frankly, I think award shows are extremely boring and the humor seems forced and lame. but I love watching for the fashion!

here are a few of my favorites:

Lea Michelle

Claire Danes 

January Jones

fall dress re-mix

tried my new dress out with some leggins and boots! it was........toasty. haha. probably not the best idea I've even had, considering it was about 80 degrees today. but 80 degrees in Texas is "cool"

dress and leggins-F21
boots-charlotte russe

savvy ninja

I tried out a new hair-do today. my hair is in the "growing out" stage. bleh.

I think it turned out cute though! I felt like a bad @$$ ninja all day

also me and a friend went to a little Italian place for lunch today and got some delicious desserts!
I really need to start eating healthy and working out again. bleh. these last 3 weeks I have been lacking in the motivation area! I have eaten pizza, candy, cake, cookies....and drank soda :O
I used to be so healthy :p

black and white

well this weekend is "tax free" weekend. This is the first time I have EVER heard of a tax free weekend. I guess Kansas isn't cool enough to have one.
anyway, forever 21 wants us to be super professional, so today we had to wear black and white and the next 2 days we have to wear all black. sounds a little depressing to me. whatev.
also the CEO of F21 ended up not coming to our store but instead he sent 2 of his minions :)

in other news, me and Mr. Husband ordered a pizza tonight which is a rare occasion for us. because I insist on eating healthy. much to his dismay. and we also got Fanta! I'm obsessed with orange fanta. it's delicious. 
so what are you all upto this weekend?

the big man on campus

well today at work(Forever21) the founder and CEO of the company is coming in. the managers called everyone to make sure they follow dress code and are "fashion savvy"
I only have to work 12-6 tonight! I almost always have to close! so it's nice I can spend the evening with Mr. Husband.

(hey look! my hair is looking longer :) 3 more inches on the sides and it will no longer be in the awkward stage.)

flashback wednesday?

I had to share this vintage photo with you all :) It's my mom (in the red) and my two aunts! and that's my grandpa!
I just love the clothes and the car in the background!

my mom and my aunts were pretty stylin, eh?

is it autumn yet?

*sigh* so ready for summer to be over, it's just too hot! I think I'm going to decorate for fall soon. Maybe that will make it come quicker.
we had a double date tonight! we went to see "the other guys" it was freakin funny. but we love stupid humor :)

I just got this dress the other day, I love it! the first photo is a really weird angle, I'll have to take some more photos some other time! I need a different cami to go underneath it. and I don't have any shoes that go with it very well, so I just wore some flip flops this evening.

to die by your side, is such a heavenly way to die

I have had the Smith's stuck in my head constantly these last few days! But at least it's the Smith's and not something lame like country music.
anyway, today I went to Starbucks. I need to stop going there so much. I might as well invest in their company or something.
I styled this 2 different ways, because I have been craving fall! (can you crave seasons?) anyway. I wanted to wear boots sooooo bad. but since it's 100 degrees here I re-styled it. 
(p.s. I got these boots on clearance for like $26! at Von Maur)

is it just me, or do my arms look really short in this photo?

buttons and flowers

It's so hard to work at Forever 21 and not buy the entire store. *sigh* I find things all day while I'm working that I want to purchase. But alas, I am saving up for my Canon Rebel EOS. so I cannot make any purchases (well...maybe a few)

I found this top buried in the depths of my closet. please excuse the angry face, I just woke up from a nap. haha. I really love the details on the blouse of the buttons and flowers :)

I don't know what it is, but this past month I have no been able to sleep! last night I got to sleep just before 3 I think. and I wake up all night. 
And then last night I had a "nightmare", you ready for this? I had a dream me and my husband had 2 baby boys, and they were only like a month apart! one was really cute and the other one had these deformed shoulder bones and HUGE ears and was the ugliest baby ever!
We had a good laugh about it this morning though...

despite the crazy night last night, I ended up putting together a decent outfit for church this morning.

notice anything?

um, hello! I put some lowlights in my hair and got a trim! I can't believe you didn't notice.

so, tonight my husband is coming home from some training he's been doing, and he thinks I'm going to be at work. SURPRISE! I'm so excited...I'm makin spaghetti!

I got all cute for him, so he will walk in the door and be all like, "geez louis, I sure have a cute wife!"

that's the plan.

(I did the trim and lowlights myself, not too shabby, eh?)
