Stepping Out Saturday #2!

Dress: Old Navy

Awesome Shoes: Groove? (Gift from my husband!)

Earrings, ring, necklace: Guess

Ok, so… Mandy did a tiny bit of cheating in her S.O.S. post for this week. So, even though I did step out this Saturday (and Thursday and Friday and Sunday – yes, busy!) I thought I’d do a little cheating of my own. We’ve been busy, and all pics are on my husband’s camera. Maybe later this week I’ll write a little post about all of that.

This picture was taken by my husband during our little getaway for our nine year anniversary this past July. We had such an incredible time! He always manages to make me look good too. 🙂

Now, head on over to Mandy’s for a little S.O.S. fun!

Wordless Wednesday

Stepping Out Saturday!

Finally!!! I actually have a picture to share for Stepping out. (Click HERE to find out about Stepping Out)

Of course, I stepped out on Saturday, but will be posting on… Sunday! Yes…

So, Stepping Out Saturday was started by the always lovely Mandy from Harper’s Happenings. That’s a combo of one of my favorite e-people and one of my favorite blogs. But I digress…

So, this Saturday, my husband and I went on a day trip to meet up with his sister and her family. We had a LOVELY day. Lots of laughs, mini golf, BBQ lunch (YUM), lighthouse at sunset and then we ended the evening with coffee (pumpkin spice latte for me, gingerbread latte for him) and a shared chocolate covered Bavarian doughnut.

So, all in all a lovely therapeutic day.

And , of course, what I’m wearing!
Top- Old Navy
Jeans- Levi’s
Purse- Roxy!!!

Now, let’s see if my blogging therapy keeps helping. 🙂

Just a Friday

Weird saying “Just a Friday” when I’m writing this on a Saturday. But the picture was taken on Friday, so that’s why.

It’s kind of hard to write sometimes. So much is going on and yet, nothing’s really happening.

A picture is simpler, and it captures happy and interesting snippets so much better than I can describe them.

Now? I’m off with the husband. “Paseo” therapy. Just cruising around.

I hope you have a great day and a happy weekend. I’ll be around.


Is this something like Wordless Tuesday? Well, close to it.

Favorite things, November something something edition…

A while back, one of my favorite blogs had a Favorite Things post… I’m all about mommy bloggers and The Heir to Blair is one of my many, many favorites. Because of my ADD, not only did it take me THIS long to get to it, but I also got kind of antsy in the making and decided to chop my list to four. It was not hard to figure out which four to pick, though…

This is just a little post about things. Let me show you…

It says a lot about me that all four of these things were basically gifts from my husband. 🙂 no, ladies, you can’t have him!

Now on to the things!!!

1. My pink sandals. As my BFF would say, in many ways, I’m a girly girl. So, give me a pretty pair of shoes and I’ll be happy. These gorgeous sandals were an anniversary gift this past July (9 years!!!) and I was afraid of them! The floor and I are BFF’s since childhood! So, I saw those pretty high platform sandals and gasped. But, they are sooo pretty!!! So, I braved on… And although I’m sure I walked very awkwardly those first few times (and who am I kidding, every time I wear them after that) I haven’t fallen on my ass once! Now that’s a victory! And not only that, but they were picked for me by my love, are extremely comfortable and they make my feet look uber cute. So? Win, win, win!!!

(why did I hit publish instead of save? I’m a neanderthal, really!)

2. My Blue Man Group calendar!!! This was probably our favorite Vegas show last year. And since I still listen to their music on my iPhone, I’m sure we’ll go back when we have the chance. Well, the calendar was a Christmas present :). And, honestly, it was a life saver kind of thing. To say this year has been rough is an understatement. Having that bit of blue happiness to remind me of better times has made long arduous days a little bit brighter. (have I told you I love my husband?)

3. My iPad. My iPad is a winner. Not only has it almost taken the place of my mini (which I still love) but it allows me my computer/reading/Twittering/playing time while still being with my husband. I love my iPad with unequaled passion. It is pretty but it’s also convenient, easy to use and carry and sooo versatile. Yep, I’m in love.

3B. Oh! And my Alice(Twilight!) bookmark! How could I forget my bookmark! Even though I rarely read a normal book anymore, my bookmark is always in my iPad cover. Not only is it Alice, and, hello!? You know I love Twilight, but it was given to me by my BFF. Now, that is a win win win combo right there! Isn’t she pretty? 😉

4. My Roxy Ruffled Up purse!!! Omygosh, this purse is perfect! The perfect size, soft, pretty and so light! I want to keep it forever! Plus, it was a just because gift from my husband. Now, who can argue with that? I told you, he is the bestest.

So, that’s it! My favorite things with a tiny bit of commentary. 🙂

I think I may like this blogging thing again. 🙂

Hey, remember me?

I wish there was a way for me to auto-publish from my brain when I get a blog idea. But, truthfully, inspiration seems to find its way into my head when I’m driving or working or just AFK. It’s a drag, really, considering how certain blogs keep helping me through my days, everyday.

Oh, those ideas? They just leave my brain just as quickly as they entered it. It’s annoying. My ADD is annoying. I can hardly be counted on to remain on topic or even interested. Sigh.

So, this week, I’m going to try this blogging thing again. I want to use it therapeutically. Because my other therapies? They aren’t working. They are harming. Me and my process.

So, I’ll be posting a few things this week. Not for anyone to read. Just for me. And we’ll just see how it goes from there. For now, it’s Monday. And, I’ll have to actually work! Sigh.
