Every Now And Then by Garth Brooks

Today may be the first friday during the school year that I have not received a sub call. However, I'm not complaining, because I had lots of time to get all the things I wanted to get done before the weekend. Days off are definitely needed sometimes.

Happy Friday!

Whatcha Say by Jason Derulo

Another day for phys ed today, therefore another casual day at school. The high was only in the low 60s, so I knew to dress warm. I love this sweater and decided I needed to get out of my pink and blue rut that I've been in the past few days. The hubby also said he liked this sweater on me, so its an obvious go to :)

Sweater: Ralph Lauren / Shirt: Old Navy / Jeans: Abercrombie and Fitch / Shoes: Puma / Earrings: Walmart

Last night I went to bed at 8:30, so I'm making myself stay up till at least 9:30 so I can watch my favorite Thursday night shows!!

Circle of Life by Elton John

I had another day of elementary phys ed. Yesterday I was told I could dress down for gym, so that's what I did today. However, I decided to turn one outfit into three different possibilities. The first is the basic outfit I was going to wear. The second picture is how to dress it up, and the third is how to dress it down. I like outfits that are easy to dress up and down so you can be flexible for the day/night.

Shirt: American Eagle / Jeans: Peebles / Shoes: New Balance / Earrings: Kohl's

Blazer: gift from mom / Shoes: Shoe Show

Pullover: Gap
(This is how I wore it to school today)

Don't Stop The Music by Rihanna

Today was my first day back to school! I finally got a call and was able to take it (I had to miss one on Friday)!!! I subbed for elementary phys. ed. It was a pretty easy day and enjoyable for my first day back to school. I get to sub for her tomorrow too, and was told I could dress down for gym class :) 

Anyway, I'm lucky that I've had this outfit laid out to wear for my first day of school. I got called at 6:30 and had to be there at 7:30, and its a 25 minute drive. Since it was such a late call, I called ahead and told them I'd be a little late... luckily they're flexible with substitutes if we get late calls. So here's my comfortable for any weather and perfect for teaching outfit:

Sweater: Banana Republic / Skirt: Gap / Shoes: Shoe Dept / Earrings: Walmart / Watch: American Eagle
(And my school ID badge)

Now I'm waiting for the hubby to get home from the ER so we can have chicken enchiladas :)

Blue Jeans by Jesse James

This is how I planned to wear this dress for my friend's wedding. However, after a shopping trip with my mom, that has changed. I bought a pair of red heels, and wore a snakeskin belt, with red earrings, which is basically the opposite of what I wore in this picture.

Dress: David's Bridal (purchased on ebay) / Shoes: Naturalizer / Belt: Charlotte Russe / Earrings: Walmart

The wedding was a lot of fun, and I'll have pictures up tomorrow!!

Dancing In The Dark by Bruce Springsteen

Hello from New York. I am home for the weekend, but still have pictures for you! Thursday night I decided to make cookies for the hubby's preceptor for a great surgery rotation. I found a recipe (on pinterest) for cream cheese filled snickerdoodles, and fell in love. They are amazing. The best part is when most cookies get hard, these stay gooey in the middle.
They are easy to make too! I used the snickerdoodle mix in a bag and made them like normal. Then you take 1 tbsp of dough, 1 tsp of the cream cheese filling, and another tbsp of dough to make the cookie, then roll it in the cinamon sugar. They made our apartment smell amazing and made a very happy hubby and preceptor.

I Decide by Lindsay Lohan

Happy first day of Fall!!!! It is in the 60s here today and they expect rain. I'm liking the temperature and am so happy for the season change! Not that I don't love summer, because I do, but this seemed like a long one and I'm excited for all the things that come with fall.... apples, football, leaves changing colors, wearing hoodies, drinking warm cider and hot chocolate, doing fun halloween things.... Yay for fall!

Anyway, today is a packed full day. I am going to lunch with the hubby and his preceptor in just a bit. Then when I get home, finish last minute packing and hit the road. First stopping at WC to take my sister to dinner, then continue driving home for the weekend. My friend is getting married on Sunday and the hubby starts his ER rotation monday morning, so my mom is my date! That means dad gets a day to himself to watch football without us girls around (not that we wouldn't join in). 

Today's outfit is to celebrate fall and to be comfortable for all the driving I will be doing. I had bought a pair of shoes from Old Navy and decided to exchange them for this cardigan, which was definitely the right choice.
Cardigan: Old Navy / Shirt: Loft / Jeans: American Eagle / Flip Flops: Target / Earrings: Walmart / Necklace: American Eagle

I'm getting my haircut tomorrow while I'm home, so say goodbye to about an inch of hair!!!

Hope you have a great weekend!

Senorita by Justin Timberlake

Its Thursday! You know what that means? Best night on television!!!!! I have a date with my hubby and tv tonight at 8pm. First up is The Big Bang Theory followed by The Office. It doesn't get much better than that. Yes it does, tomorrow is friday, and my weekend starts! 

Today's outfit has an inspiration photo! I found it on pinterest, so I'm not quite sure where it came from, because the website it came from was tumblr. Anyway, I loved it, so I tried it for myself.

Here's my version, however I don't have a scarf to tie around my neck, so I placed the belt higher:
Sweater: Gap / Jeans: American Eagle / Belt: Charlotte Russe / Shoes: BareTraps / Earrings: Kohl's

(I tried to do the model's pose)

I like using inspiration photos. It helps when I'm lacking creativity. :)

Tomorrow from Annie

I would like to introduce myself, ridiculously awesome housewife. When I don't get phone calls to sub, I am amazing at doing dishes, laundry, cleaning, cooking and baking. 

My day started like any other day. Then I decided to do laundry for the hubby and I. I put my laundry into dark and light piles, then went to get hubby's laundry from the guest room/his closet. This turned into cleaning up the entire room, which is no small task. However, if you are planning on staying with us anytime soon, the guest room is the cleanest its ever been and I think you will enjoy it! I had already cleaned the entire apartment and done dishes. Then I decided to try a new recipe for dinner and try something creative for desert. The recipe for dinner came from something I saw on pinterest and was lead to this. Its really awesome and you should try it too. Here's how it looks....

Sour Cream Noodle Bake

And for desert, I thought I'd try to be creative. I thought I could make a s'mores pie. I thought I'd make a chocolate pudding pie, like I've made before, and put a layer of melted marshmallows on top of that with crushed graham crackers on top. The pie was going fine, till I decided to microwave marshmallows. Don't do this unless you want a ridiculously sticky mess. I then tried to put it on top of the pie.... which didn't go so well. Next time I need to use fluff. But here's a picture of what I put together.

S'mores pie

It was ok. We ended up taking the marshmallow layer off and just had the chocolate pudding pie. Lesson learned. Tomorrow, I'll have an outfit post :)

Who Says by John Mayer

Its a beautiful fall day. I have a few errands to run, then lots of laundry to do tonight. I love the colors of fall... browns, oranges, greens, and purple too! I like how purple and brown go together so I decided that's what I'd wear today. Plus, I like a dark top with light colored jeans, so I went with a dark purple. 

Sweater: Loft / Jeans: Abercrombie and Fitch / Scarf: American Eagle / Shoes: Shoe Show / Earrings: Kohl's

(You can see the color purple better in this picture)

Hope you like fall as much as me! :)

Free by Zac Brown Band

I finally cleaned the apartment and decorated for fall today. Little sis called yesterday after the Bills game and asked if I was doing anything for the rest of the night, and asked if I could come up, take her and her roommate to walmart and to hang out for the evening. Hubby said he had to study and I had nothing else to do, so I was a nice sister and drove up to see them. We enjoyed ourselves with coffee, a stop at the outlet mall, grocery shopping, and then picked up some dinner to take back to their room. 

Anyway, since all I've done is clean up and decorate, I don't have an outfit picture today. I do, however, have pictures from the weekend!
First pumpkin spice latte of the season!!!

So excited that this week is the beginning of the new season for some of my favorite tv shows... starting off tonight with The Sing Off! I'll be cheering for the University of Rochester Yellow Jackets and the University of Delaware's Deltones, because I have friends in both a capella groups!!!!

Bringin' Da Noise by 'N Sync

Sundays are perfect days. Church in the morning, brunch afterwards, then home to clean, relax, and watch football. See? Perfect days. Now I just need to get onto the cleaning part... 

Today's outfit is easy to transition from dressed up for church to relaxed for the afternoon. Skirt to jeans with the same sweater is as easy as it gets. I love 3/4 sleeve sweaters, because they are perfect for most weather. It was in the 50s when I got ready this morning, but now its 67. Still sooo happy that is fall weather!!!

Notice anything different?

Welcome to the new and improved Pictures and a Thousand Words!!!! I am so excited to have a new banner for the blog and to have the feature for you to like the blog on facebook! This is all thanks to Meg from meg-mix. I think she did a really great job and am so happy with the new look!

Today consisted of working out, organizing the pantry, ordering Papa John's for dinner, and we're headed to game night at a friends house. Its in the 60s and a pretty chill Saturday, so I thought Jeans a long sleeve shirt were the perfect combination.

Have a great night!

The Big Bang Theory Theme Song by Barenaked Ladies

Last night at 10:30pm, the hubby's preceptor called and said they had an emergency surgery to do... to remove someone's appendix. He was not thrilled to get up since we were both already in bed, but when he got home around 1am, he was excited that he saved someone's life. 

Today I'm going to lunch with the hubby and his preceptor. I enjoy meeting up with them... we always go to new places I've never tried. Its in the 60s today so I decided to wear a light sweater. This is the perfect weather!
