As the world turns..

Although the Christmas excitement is over there is still plenty of excitement to be had here. With weeks full of work to be done in one week ,errands, and post Christmas shopping to do I am staying very very busy. I wish I could say I will be here all week but I don't wanna make promises that I might not keep.

So how was your Christmas? Did you have fun with your family and get all the gifts you were hoping for? I know I sure did. This year my husband completely spoiled me. I have plenty of gift cards to spend and some nice presents that I can't wait to use. Lucky Lucky me..

'Twas the Night

Twas the night before the night before Christmas and everyone was stirring, even the mouse. Running to pick up last minute gifts in hopes of a grand smile. Grocery store shopping while fighting the crowds. All the meanwhile Santa just watches in hopes that all of us play nice. While budgets drop and credit card balances soar, let's not forget the reason we're here. Tis not about the gifts, or how much you spend but how you treat others in a season of care. As God gave his son for us, his hopes are for us to give ourselves as well. So help me remember the reason for this season and let us take time to enjoy this Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone. May your holiday weekend be filled with laughter, joy, and plenty of sugar! Have a blessed season, and see you next week!

Yesterday we did an "Ugly" Sweater thing at work, so this is my ugly look. I sure hope you didn't think I dressed like this for did? Oh no..

Christmas has sucked all my creative juices if you couldn't tell by my "Untitled" post. I'm thinking that once the New Year starts i'm gonna be able to get back into a routine again. This sparatic posting is making me confused and lost. I can never seem to remember when I've taken my outfit posts. Luckily after scratching the inards of my brain I now know when I took these pictures. The one at the top and just below is from December 16th and the one at the very bottom is from December 20th. See what happens when you put your mind to something..

The countdown begins..

As Christmas is a little over a week away, what I'm wondering is if i'm the only one who really hasn't gotten much of my Christmas shopping done. I would love to start my shopping early but most of the time i'm waiting on paychecks or for my family & friends to throw out hints about what they want. So every year without fail I'm the last minute shopper. So far I haven't waited until Christmas Eve but there could be a first for everything. This year i'm excited for Christmas though because I got some really great presents for the ones that I love and I can't wait to see their faces when they open their presents. I don't really even want much for myself. Don't get me wrong though... I won't turn down a present though! So how is your Christmas shopping going? Anything special you are hoping Santa brings you this year?

Can you keep a secret?

So I'm gonna let you all in on a little secret..are you ready? I'm TERRIFIED of driving in the snow. It's crazy right?! Especially since i live in Michigan were snow is as common as breathing. I can't help it though, it freaks me out! I think it has a lot to do with the fact that I've encountered most of my accidents in the winter time. I am the lady you pass in the winter because she's going slow...sorry. If going slow is gonna get me to my destination safe then that's what I'm gonna do and you are just gonna deal with it. Luckily right now my husband and I share a car so most of the time I don't have to drive in this mess. But what am i gonna do when we get another car?! It scares me to even think about it! So there you have it...I'm a wuss...that's just how it is! Love me or leave me i say.

Another Monday..oh joy! NOT!

So I feel a need to explain myself. I take my pictures in the morning, most of the time before I go to work. I'm not usually thrilled to go to work and its still early so I try not to smile at the camera. One because i'm not in the mood really and two I try not to be fake. I don't do fake. I keep it real ALL the time. Its a flaw and a strong suit all at the same time. The other thing is that I have big cheeks. Chipmunk or gummball cheeks as some of my loved ones like to call them. When I smile...really smile my cheeks get bigger! I'm just not confident about em yet. One day acceptance will come. One day. With all that being said I know that sometimes I look evil and mean..or a b***h. I promise i'm not though, so i'm gonna try harder to smile. It won't be all the time but i will try...scouts honor!! Now that I got that off my chest I already feel better.

Lots to catch up on..

Hey everyone! How you been? I decided that last week since I had a lot of things to do and I needed to get some rest that I wasn't gonna blog. I did take pictures though because I knew the day would come when I would miss you all. So lets sit down in a cozy cafe and have some hot cocoa then you can tell me what I missed.

Today we are getting pounded with snow! It's beautiful out and everything looks more romantic with the white snow covering it. The only unfortunate part is having to drive in the mess when the roads haven't been salted or plowed yet. I did that today and it was NOT fun! Believe me. Don't leave the house unless its an emergency. You will regret it! Stay inside, eat cookies, and watch movies. This is the beginning of hibernation all..

Fashionably Yours~

Here are some of my outfit posts from last week, not all but most! Enjoy!

Not around. Leave a message.

Lately I feel like i've been in a weird fog. Almost like i'm busy but i'm not. I just don't feel like i have a good routine lately. I blame it on the holiday season whirlwind. So if my blogging seems sparatic or my words don't seem to make sense...thats why.

Regardless, November was my 1 year anniversary of this blog! Of couse because of the fog I did no fun anniversary post. So tonight i will write up a special post about my favorite outfits over the last year. So look for that coming soon..

Fashionably Yours~
