Story of My Life by One Direction

Are you excited for the Superbowl? We are around here! I went food shopping with a friend yesterday to get things for our party on Sunday. We will in fact have two Broncos fans at the party, surrounded by Seahawks fans in Seahawks territory, but that's what you get in the military. There is some serious 12th man spirit in western Washington! In other news, my camera broke. I don't know what happened to it, but it won't take pictures. But good news, Hubby got me an awesome new Canon camera for Christmas! However I'm still playing around and working on how I should take outfit pictures with it. So in the meantime taking pictures on my iPhone is easiest and still looks the same to the other pictures.

It was a rainy day yesterday till the sun broke through the clouds and turned it into a pretty day. On gloomy days I like to wear fun bright colors to counteract the weather. You don't get much brighter and happier than yellow! And Bentley always likes to be right by my side, and the first picture was just too perfect a way to prove it to you! :)

Timber by Pitbull featuring Ke$ha

My facebook feed is currently about the weather and the state of the union address from last night. I'm happy to say I can't complain about either. Our 50* slightly rainy weather is much better than the harsh freezing weather that is effecting most of my friends and family and closing schools, and I watched The Bachelor wedding with the girls last night instead of the President's speech, so I have no opinions on the matter. Its just another regular work day for me and I'm looking forward to the weekend and the superbowl! Go Seahawks!!!
Shirt: Target / Cami: Aeropostale / Jeans: Buckle / Shoes: Old Navy / Earrings: Walmart / Necklace: Macy's  

This outfit is mostly new things from Christmas. I wore this to Sunday brunch with Hubby. It was perfectly comfortable yet put together instead of wearing yoga pants and a sweatshirt. The top is practically made for pajamas and the moccasins are pillows for your feet. Works for me!

You Sound Good To Me by Lucy Hale

I am currently sitting on the couch, with Hubby's legs on my lap who's enjoying this relaxing day after getting two of his wisdom teeth pulled yesterday, listening to music, catching up on some blog reading, and stalking facebook pictures of the undergrad sisters of my sorority who are going through recruitment week. This is one of those moments, besides the holidays, when Washington is too far from PA/OH/NY. West Virginia was much closer. I miss my sisters lots and lots, and all my friends and family, but am looking forward to a trip home in April (hopefully!). Recruitment week is the best. Lots of time spent bonding with your sisters, meeting lots of new girls and introducing them to greek life, and all the excitement that goes with it. I was able to help out the past two years which was a blast. Its fun to be in the background and do all the behind the scene stuff, including matching bids. Plus I was able to be there to pick up my own sister and then spend the week with her the second year. So I wish the greeks at Westminster College all the best and hope they enjoy every minute of final night tonight and bid day tomorrow!

This is the outfit I wore on Saturday to watch the Seattle Seahawks beat the New Orleans Saints for their chance to get closer to the Superbowl!!! Hubby and I are glad that if the Bills and Browns can't make it to the playoffs, that at least our new home team can. Its easy for me to dress up for the seahawks since I have plenty of blue and green in my closet. Plus I'm in love with this target sweater, which I also have in red, and the old navy vest, which I also have in black, and the old navy shoes, which I also have in blue. I had some Christmas money's to spend so when I found the stores still had them in different colors, I went for it. :)

I Lived by OneRepublic

Happy Friday! I'm enjoying this relaxing morning with Bentley before I work this afternoon. He is currently chewing his ball on the couch next to me and every so often it falls off the couch and he looks to me to pick it up for him. I do it because he's enjoying himself and staying out of trouble this way. Hopefully we have decent weather this weekend so we can go to the dog park for awhile and get out some energy. We went on a long walk with another resident's spouse and her dog (and adorable sleeping baby) on the trails throughout our town yesterday which was just what the little boy needed. The East coast is having a polar vortex, but we're having 40s and rain, which isn't much more fun. In other wonderful news, Hubby took his Step 3 Boards back in December and found out this week that he passed and received his best score yet! Also he has found out that we are officially staying here for 2.5 more years. He also switches to the newborn service today which has pretty decent hours so that will be wonderful! There will be a date night this weekend to celebrate for sure! :)

Shirt: Loft / Vest: Old Navy / Jeans: American Eagle / Shoes: Bobs / Scarf: Old Navy / Earrings: Old Navy / Hipster: Vera Bradley's Bittersweet Symphony

Sometimes I like to match outfits to my Vera Bradley purses. Most of the time I wear solids and let the print stand out on its own, sometimes I like to pattern mix with something kind of neutral to make things more exciting. Well the purse is a Christmas present and I recently got the scarf as well and knew I had to pair them. The stripes were a nice neutral pattern to go with the floral and houndstooth of the VB print. Sometimes I think I should be a VB model, right? Lol! 

Oh yea, and Bentley wears argyle. Very well if I do say so myself :)

Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year! I hope you've had a chance to reflect on the past year and are excited for the upcoming one. I'm excited to see what 2014 has in store for us after the big events of 2013. But first a recap of our New Years Eve! As some of you know, its also Hubby's birthday, and he turned the big 27 yesterday! Since he worked Christmas, he was given New Years Eve and Day off, which was a wonderful birthday present for him! Yesterday we had a relaxing morning, spent Christmas money's at Cabela's for new camping gear in the afternoon, and had a 5 course celebratory dinner at The Melting Pot before spending the rest of the night at home in pjs with the pup to watch the ball drop on tv. Today has been spent in pjs, watching netflix, eating pizza and drinking mimosas with the boys. I'd say 2014 is off to a great start!

This dress is the newest addition to my closet from eShakti. If you are a new reader, eShakti is an online clothing company that specializes in customizing their pieces to your preference and size. I found this black and grey chevron dress and knew it would be perfect for the holidays. I wore it to a work Christmas party a couple weeks ago as well as to New Years Eve dinner last night. I didn't need to customize it because I love that it has pockets and it was already cut just above the knee. Hubby wore a black and grey striped shirt, jeans, black blazer and shoes to match me quite nicely. We celebrated the new year in style! :)
