Inception Files

Happy Saturday everyone!! I have a lot to tell you. Get ready, here it goes..

Yesterday since it was my birthday, right after work my husband took me out. We ate dinner at Olga's Kitchen, walked around the mall and shopped a bit, and then went and saw Inception. It was a great great night. Then today I woke up early (6:00 am..ugh) to go stand in line for free gift cards at the Grand Re-Opening of the Forever 21 store at the mall by my house. They had a lot of $10 gift cards but since I brought my lucky charm (my mom). She got a $50 gift card and I got a $20 card. So all in all i got $70 free to spend at Forever 21. I love free stuff!!

The birthday celebration continues for me tomorrow. Its lunch and celebration with the family. So i'm getting some rest before the mayhem continues. I hope you are all having a great weekend.

Fashionably Yours!

Oh and my co-worker decorated my cubicle for me for my bithday. How great is she?!!

It's my Birthday Day!! Happy Birthday to me!

As I am typing this i'm watching Project Runway's Season 8 Premier. So of course I have must keep this short. I love love love love this show. My husband groaned when he saw the preview for the new season. Too bad for him.

Also, today is MY BIRTHDAY!! I was born 27 years ago today!! And in fact today i'm grateful for actually being born. I'm so glad my parents decided to have me because my life is quite wonderful!!

This is actually Thursday, July 29th's outfit. Because today is my birthday I won't be posting again until Saturday. On that note, what are your plans for the weekend??

Give him an inch and he'll take a mile

This was actually my outfit from yesterday. I wasn't really wanting to wear this kind of outfit but now that I see the picture it turns out it was alright.

As you know from my previous post from yesterday you know that I went and saw Dinner with Schmucks. What you didn't know is that I also got a free dinner at Olga's. So basically we had a great date night without spending any money. That has never happened before and I'm so glad we got to experience it. Now if only we could get it to happen that way more often..

So today I'm grateful for my overall health. I do have some health problems here and there but nothing serious and I'm so glad for that. I'm just so lucky that I don't have to pop pills for my many diseases. What are you grateful for?

I am NOT a schmuck..well maybe..

Tonight the hubs and I are off to see a pre-screening of Dinner for Schmucks for FREE!! My favorite word (Next to sale and clearance of course!). So since I will be away I have a special treat. Some of my favorite outfits (one for each month) since the beginning of the year! The last one is a "Did I really wear that?!?" flashback. Not to say I wouldn't wear it again but I may have worn it to work..thats questionable. So hope you enjoy more of...ME!! After all it is my birthday week (Yes i take a whole week and sometimes the whole month, but hubs won't let me have the whole year)!

Today i'm just grateful that i'm not a schmuck. Get it. Lame? Ok well you get the point..i've never been invited to one of these dinners so no matter what you say that makes me a non-schmuck. Agree? Good!!

Fashionably Yours!

Sherbert Ice Cream

This outfit was orginally planned for yesterday but since I got sick I didn't really get a chance to wear it, so I'm wearing it today. You may call it cheating but I call it smart! That and its takes up less of my time, energy, AND laundry soap. So cringe all you want but I'm doing it and there is nothing you can do to stop me! Oh and don't these shorts just make you wanna eat sherbet on this hot July day! It does for me....too bad I don't have any around. I guess Mint Chocolate Chip will have to do for now.

I'm grateful for my Lips. Yes i'm a talker and most people would wish they would stay shut sometimes but too BAD!! Plus they are pretty great for kissing my husband too! ;)

I found the one, the grey one

Ever since I grew out of my last pair of grey jeans and gave them away to my friend I've been dying to find some new ones. When I got a gift card from H&M I was ecstatic to go shopping to say the least. I ended up finding these jeans at H&M and I couldn't be more pleased. The are pretty much like the jeggings that I bought from there before but they are are a little more loose in the waist area. I'm so excited to remix the heck out of them. For the first time wearing them I decided to look a little more rock and roll. Luckily too my husband willingly decided to let me borrow (or actually give me) this shirt. Since it is extra big i decided to tuck it on one side. It was a very comfortable outfit too.

Today i'm grateful that my body can bounce back pretty quickly from a rough workout. Sometimes I can get pretty sore after a good workout but it doesn't usually last too long and I'm back to feeling normal in no time.

So what are your weekend plans? I plan on hanging around the house all weekend because next weekend and the weeks after that are gonna be hectic so I might as well get all the rest that I can now.

Fashionably Yours!

Parisian Chic

I felt very Parisian chic in today's outfit. Simple and easy. I'm gonna keep this SO short tonight because i'm getting tired and its late.

Today, I'm grateful for my stomach. I haven't always loved it but as its getting smaller i'm starting to love it more and more.

Musical Inspiration

She's confident, innovative, creative, fashion-forward, a mom, a wife, and a true woman. She's got the voice of a well-trained gospel singer and isn't afraid to be herself. She's changed her hair, her style, her music, and the industry. She is...Christina Aguilera!!

I have always enjoyed her music and as I get older I can definitely apItalicpreciate her honesty and candidness about personal topics. She's been a role model to many people. I love her fashion and her voice. IF you haven't got her new album you are missing out!! It's fun, upbeat, loud, and dance-worthy. I have no doubt that you will be singing along to Not Myself Tonight, I hate Boys, and Prima Donna. Also, there are cameos from her hubs and son. So get the album and be inspired by this beautiful woman!!

I'm quite jealous of her shoe collection as well!!

Polka Dancing and Polka Dot Dreams

I should have taken a close up picture of the skirt because even though you can't tell from these pictures the skirt is polka dot as well. I felt adventurous this morning when picking out my outfit. Hence the polka dots on top of polka dots. The blue shirt was more or less for a cover up for at work and because I was excited and ready to wear it.

Today, I'm grateful for my muscles. I can do almost anything just me and my muscles. I'm actually not in body builder shape but I have some nice muscles for my body. The more i workout the bigger they get. I am proud that I can use my muscles to get stronger everyday!!

Off I go now to watch me some CSI!!

Bookworm Smarty!

The glasses make me look like a bookworm/smarty pants. I didn't actually wear them to work because I knew they would bother me. That's why in the other pictures I'm not wearing them. Also, since I was wearing my ballet flats I decided to do a ballerina pose. I know I couldn't be a ballerina but I can sure pretend to be one.

Today I'm grateful for my gorgeous green eyes. I've been told a couple times though that they do change colors. I could not imagine being blind and not seeing all the beautiful and even ugly things this world has to offer. I'm very glad to be able to see..

It's finally the weekend! I love it. Today, I got up early to go walk around the mall. For exercise? Yes! Then once the mall opened I went shopping at H&M. I had a gift card so I got some pretty great things. I finally got the grey jeans i've been looking for, a straw fedora, a blue sheer long sleeve shirt, and a yellow polka dot tank top. I'm quite excited about the fancy pants weardrobe that I'm developing.

So today I'm grateful for my toes. Recently I got a compliment about my toes on flickr. Most people would think its really weird but it's not the first time i've gotten a toe compliment. I have short even looking toes. Individually they look weird but as a unit they are fantastic! They allow me to keep my balance plus they look cute in sandals. They also help me fit into a couple different sized shoes. Lucky me!! So I'm glad I have the toes I have...

What are you doing for this weekend?

Revenge of the flowy tanks..

So these are the last of my thrifted floaty tops. The outfit above is from today and the blue and yellow outfit is from yesterday. I don't have much to say today so i'm just gonna leave you with outfit posts and what i'm grateful for.

Today i'm grateful for my awesome legs. They've never let me down. Well actually sometimes they have. And even though i'm a little bow-legged i'm grateful for my skinny sexy legs. Thanks to working out out they've gotten even nicer over the last couple months. I'm glad they've supported me all these years!

Just 5 more minutes mom!

A short post tonight since i've still got this dumb headache. I got this polka dot top at the thrift store recently and I was so excited to wear it. I got a couple compliments on the shirt at work today and that just validates what I thought at the thrift store....This is an AWESOME top. It did have shoulder pads in it but I took them out. Wait a while and you will see me wear it as a cardigan/jacket since the back has buttons all the way down..just trying to get the most out of my weardrobe.

Time for my love thyself statement. I'm glad that even though I still get headaches that drive me crazy I have a very strong will and I can push through the pain. Even though it hurts to even be awake at times I would much rather deal with my pain then someone else's. Pain is horrible but its helps you appreciate the days where there is no pain. Thank you god for giving me the will to push through any pain i have.
