Long time, no post! Just to prove that I'm still alive, I thought I would share a few pics from some Summer fun in my neighborhood. Playing Corn Hole at the neighbors! I was playing against my Dad, and yes, we are Marshall University fans. My sandals, which I love,... Continue reading

Welcome Spring. Flowers on my dress and in my hair make me excited for warmer weather and real flowers. I wore this to church and was cold. My dress is spaghetti strapped and the cardigan didn't help with the chill. I forget where I got the dress, JC Penny or... Continue reading

Ok, it's not exactly torture. My mom sells a bunch of things on Ebay. Guess who has to be her "model"? This week it was an 80's prom dress and a vintage 70's golf sweater. This outfit, she actually asked my opinion on. She put it out on her bed,... Continue reading

Not very often does my mom question what I am wearing but, the other day she asked if I was really gonna "wear that?". I happen to like mixing my stripes and plaids. Of course, five days out of seven, I'm in Converse shoes! My shorts are from Kohl's and... Continue reading

Last month I made a spur of the moment purchase at my local Sephora, which is not at all unusual. Sephora partnered with Pantone, the paint maker, to come up with some fabulous orangey colors. I bought the Apricot Brandy Prisma Color Blush. It is so perfect for summer and... Continue reading

I like owls. I recently dressed around two pieces of owl jewelry. One, a necklace which was a gift from my neighbor, Ellen. And second, a ring I picked up at Claire's. I love a big ring that I have to wear on my index finger! I have on a... Continue reading

I raided my Mom's closet today for a top she had never even taken the tags off of yet. It came from the Limited, who knows how long ago. I wore it with a pair of my favorite denim shorts from Aeropostle. My sandals are from there, too. I had... Continue reading

Believe it or not, my family manages to sit down together for a meal at least five nights a week. Sometimes it's an insta-meal, others I've cooked all evening. These Italian Pork Chops were super good and super fast. The rolls were from frozen bread dough, the potatoes were instant... Continue reading

Yesterday I wore a dress from Kohl's and LC Lauren Conrad that my Mom snagged on clearance for $4.99! It is a size medium and a bit too big so I had to wear a shirt underneath. My Aunt, Amanda, got me these great earrings which were perfect! And, once... Continue reading

While rummaging through some of my Grandmother's old junk, I recently discovered an old wooden key holder. With a little bit of ingenuity, I had a new statement piece. It started out as a dark wood piece. I cleaned it and gave it two coats of spray paint. I used... Continue reading
