Arms by Christina Perri

I definitely forgot that today was Thursday. So I forgot to do a Thursday Latelies video. The holiday on Monday has me off a day, but that means we're closer to the weekend! However, I do have an outfit for you! I decided its been awhile since I've worn red, so I grabbed this shirt out of my closet and the rest of the outfit was created around it. I was very happy with it, and thought its a good choice for Memorial day or the 4th of July, but I'd add blue flats instead of bronze to make it really red, white, and blue. I also feel a little sailor-ish in it, which is nautical, and I love nautical. So I love it. :)

I have a post coming soon that I'm really excited about it. I was asked to do a product review for eshakti, and the dress just arrived. Now I'm debating between wearing it to the wedding this weekend or for the rehearsal next weekend. So keep a look out for it!

Food Adventures

Its time for another post on the adventures from the kitchen. I'm trying to be more creative, and I think I have been. Unfortunately, I missed taking a picture of the hamburgers I made for tailgating on Saturday, because they were excellent. Anyway, I hope these pictures make your mouth water... because mine is!

Just One Of Those Things by Nat King Cole

It was a stormy, rainy morning, which made me decide to wear something bright and happy to counteract the mood from the weather. Its been a clean up, laundry, and take a nap kind of day. Currently there are homemade meatballs in the oven and some water boiling for pasta. Hubby just came home and is pretty tired. He delivered a baby all by himself today! So I think we'll put in a movie and lay on the couch tonight. Have you seen The Descendants? I just got in the mail from netflix. :)

Earrings up close

I liked this outfit so I had fun taking pictures of it.

Haven't done a "headshot" lately, and I decided this was a good choice for a new summery look for the blog's facebook page. Do you like pictures and a thousand words on facebook? Please do!

Happy Memorial Day!

I spent the afternoon with some friends by the pool. It was a nice, relaxing day. I am thankful to all in the military who make days like this possible. Especially, my own army man. I love you hubby!
Dress: Hollister / Flip Flops: Abercrombie and Fitch / Bikini and Earrings: Walmart

Earrings that I found for the occasion

I wasn't going to post an outfit today, since I knew I was going to be in bikini... which isn't much of an outfit. However, I like this dress so I decided to use it as a cover up, and therefore the outfit was fine for the blog. I liked the white and blue to be patriotic, and my earrings have red, blue, and silver stars on them. It was a good choice since it was in the 90s today!

Free by Zac Brown Band

So far this memorial day weekend has been jam packed with fun events. Friday was the bachelorette party and yesterday we tailgated for most of the afternoon and went to the Pirates game. Today is going to be a relaxing day, hubby needs to do some studying, but hopefully we'll take our bikes to the trail later. Here are some pictures of the good times! (The first ones are from my camera, the second ones from my phone through instagram)

Black And Yellow by Wiz Khalifa

In celebration of our friends who just got engaged last week, we are taligating and going to the Pittsburgh Pirates game tonight! Our tickets include free shirts and a fireworks show after the game. Since the Pirates colors are black and yellow, I thought my yellow jeans and a black top would be the perfect stylish way to cheer them on!

Tomorrow I'll have some fun weekend pics :)

Take A Chance On Me by ABBA

Its a busy day today. I'm subbing this afternoon at the middle school, then its time for the bachelorette party!!!! The maid of honor and I have been working hard on the details this week, and I am so excited to celebrate! Plus, very happy its a half day of work, so I'm not exhausted tonight for the party. We planned that we would all wear black shirts and denim, plus we purchased some fun accessories, so that we look like a group and stand out a little. Plus, our bride has lots to wear! First picture is what I wore to work, the second two are what I wore for the bachelorette.

Thursday Latelies in Pictures

I decided to do Thursday Latelies today, but the things I wanted to show you were better off taken in pictures than a video. So here they are:
Our deck, my new favorite place (view from my car)

Up close of our flowers :)

I said the other day that I bought new throw pillows that really brightened up the apartment

I think they look awesome!

Have a happy Thursday!!!!!

Imagine by John Lennon

This afternoon I had my final fitting for my bridesmaid dress, along with the maid of honor and the bride! The wedding is only two weeks away, so we're all getting really excited. Afterwards, I went to the dance studio (where I interviewed last week) to cover for a teacher who couldn't be there tonight. So yes, that means I got the job!!!!! I had a great night working with the girls and am excited to work there! More details to come next week.
Shirt: American Eagle / Shorts: Gap / Flats: Shoe Show / Earrings: NY&Co.

This outfit is nice enough to go to my dress fitting and comfortable enough to dance in.
And it says IMAGINE all the possibilities in the world.

Who Knew by Pink

Did you watch The Bachelorette last night? For her final date, they flew to Lewisburg and went to The Greenbrier!!!! I was so excited to see where we lived the past two years on tv!!!! Emily is originally from West Virginia, but I think she's from Morgantown, however she said her family used to take trips to the hotel when she was younger. Too bad her date didn't work out there.

Since we bought the flowers for the deck, I've been on a kick to do home improvement type stuff. Yesterday I bought some new throw pillows and candles for the living room to replace some old ones, some things to fix up hubby's closet, and bee spray!! The bees are finally gone, so the deck is my new favorite place. However, today was overcast, so I've been inside doing things, but there's something about a few replacements that really brighten up the apartment.

Today I feel like pink lemonade. I found these pink flats when I was at walmart yesterday, and they were $1!!!!! I've been looking for pink flats and was so excited to find them on top of them being such a great deal.

Every Rose Has Its Thorn by Guns N Roses

Yesterday, hubby and I went out to get a few groceries and brought home three hanging baskets for our deck! It looks really pretty and makes me want to sit out on it all day, however we now have two angry bees who think they own our deck. They made a home on one of our chairs, and when we moved it, well they weren't happy. So now we're going to get some bee spray to put an end to this. But I love our flowers and can't wait for the bees to be gone so I can lay out on the deck!

I decided to wear a really bright outfit today. I love this neon orange shirt :)

Hot Stuff by Donna Summers

Its a gorgeous day, so I hope to take a walk outside, and then we're making steaks on the little grill outside for dinner... pretty great ending for this weekend. Yesterday was a beautiful day for graduation. After seeing our newly graduated friends, hubby, our best friend, and I went to Outback Steakhouse for dinner and a movie. We went to see The Avengers, but that was sold out, so we ended up seeing The Dictator. It was funny and entertaining, but he definitely knows how to go too far and then some. And I still want to see The Avengers! Oh well, here's what I wore yesterday.
Cardigan: Banana Republic / Dress: Belk / Cami: Aeropostale / Flats: H&M / Belt: NY&Co. / Earrings: NY&Co.

(I changed the cami from white to grey and took off the watch... but the pictures I took of it that way are all blurry, so here's what the dress looks like without the cardigan, which was how I was all day at graduation... the cardigan was for dinner and the movie)

Happy Sunday!

A$$ Back Home by Gym Class Heroes

This afternoon I'm going to Westminster's graduation. The seniors that are graduating were freshman when I was a senior there, and I have a few close friends in that class, so I'm going to see them! Its also a really nice excuse to sit outside in the sun for a few hours. Also, I have never been to an outdoor graduation, since mine and the ones around it were inside due to weather. So I'm excited to see what its like outside on senior terrace.

This outfit is what I wore to lunch yesterday. It was freezing cold in the restaurant, but really nice outside, so I like having a light jacket on hand. The tank is also new from last weekend. It was a really good deal from Old Navy :)

I'm on a roll remembering to show you these :)
