White in January

I is for Inspired by.

I get my inspiration from a lot of amazing bloggers who are rocking the fashion scene  and also from this lady Her name is Amanda and her blog is color me blue fashion. 

I did feel a little out of place wearing white in January but I just went for it!

My outfit details:
Shirt, Belt, shoes - Target / Jeans- American Eagle / Blazer- H&M / Scarf- SarieJune

And I have to throw in the cutest picture of my hound dog and her first experience of snow.

We don't get snow often and this was the amount we got and nothing stuck, but she was not having it...too cold and wet to play with me, she finished this game with running inside !

Happy Thursday my friends, Tomorrow is letter J! I have a feeling getting dressed tomorrow will be hard for me. Also I am changing up the is time, oh Monday I can not wait! I think I want something completely different.

 Belt- Came with another outfit
Skirt- Thrifted (The Loft) 6.99
Purple Tights - Target 3.99
Shoes- Target (on sale) 7.99
Necklace- Forever 21 9.99

Total outfit - 33.95 (And its sad to me that my necklace is the most expensive piece of this outfit! :) )


-Most of these poses. I mean really??! Come on Nicole learn how to pose and take pictures or no more . period.
- Getting to wear your shirt inside out one day this week because of our schools spirit week and new people coming in to the school and I look like I don't know how to put my cloths on.
-Making a trip to the grocery store buying: puppy treats (3 kinds for her training) Dog bones (she needs the big ones, no puppy size for her) dog food, and a dog brush. Getting home to remember you needed people food or you and your husband will starve by tomorrows dinner. Opps I guess I care a little too much about the puppy.
-The weather man saying we would get 4-8 inches of snow only to wake up to about 10inches of water and rain. No Mr. weather man we are in a flood state not a winter snow storm...sorry buddy.
-Driving through puddles that have flooded the road and now could be considered new rivers , too late to turn around , too late to stop just power through and realize you had your eyes closed while you drove through the river.


- Taking said puppy to her first Obedience School and she rocked it. I know most moms (and yes that should go under Awkward, i just called myself her mom, I am aware) say their dog's / kids are the best at all things but I was prepared for an unruly dog, just out of control, smelling everything, jumping, barking, going crazy....and she didn't. She didn't obey first time but she learned and came into line, I was very impressed. Even the teacher used her as an example and did okay!
-watching a movie on tv with no commercials with husband..
-Wearing outfits that cost under 40.00 from head to toe!
-Working through tough and hard situations and knowing that God will never leave me or give me more then I can handle and will be by my side through it all.

I am linked up with ABC's of Style. She is pretty awesome and super creative!

And with The Day Book. Awkward & Awesome Thursday

Happy Thursday my blogger friends!! Tune in for tomorrow it is letter E day....I know you are on the edge of your seats.

Awkward & Awesome Thursday

A&A .

This Weeks Awkward and Awesome is Disneyland edition. I realized I didn't really post any pictures and well I am slacking on my outfit pictures yesterday and today, so this kills two birds with one stone! ! 

 A Beautiful Malibu California Wedding.

 We meet Micky Mouse!!
 Hello California Adventure.
 Me and of my favorite Rides.
 We made a TON of memories.
 How could you not love this man?! He still makes my heart beat fast.

 A little Blurry (before the new camera) But what girl does not love Castles!

 DAY 2 RAIN DAY....apparently we did not get the message that one day it will be 85 degrees next day 50 and rainy....

Day 3 RAIN. My poncho never left my side.

 This is how empty it was while it poured rain...we stuck it out for as long as we could or until we were too wet and at that point didn't need to wear a poncho because you were the rain at that point. unfortunately the latter is what made us go home and rest (love nap time)

Came back Day 3 after nap, cloudy but sunny!!! 

Tower of Terror.....or as I like to call it "What will Kill Nicole"  HATE IT SO MUCH. But husband loves the ride and so we rode it 3 times.....I screamed like a child all 3 times and yelled in the middle "IS IT DONE YET???!!!"
 I am 4th person on the back wall.......SCARED to death, eyes closed (entire ride) screaming, holding on for my life to the point my knuckles turned white, (I think I might have peed my pants a little bit)
The things we do for LOVE.

This is not the best picture, but it was the last night, it stopped raining, dark (semi warm night) 
Husband and I walked hand in hand with hot chocolate (in other hands) through the pathways, looking and watching and taking it all in. Just the two of us, being young, in love and having a blast. As we walked towards the exit I cried a little because Vacations are so special, the memories the quality time nothing is like it. so this is our last picture before they practically kicked us out because we wouldn't leave we left.


 -The Rain. The Rain coming down sideways and wind blowing it straight to your hiny and other places you shouldn't have big wet spots.....good thing everyone else around me looked like they were having too much fun in Disneyland and didn't want to take the time to go the bathroom too.
- Ponchos....they stick to you in funny places like a wetsuit, and cause static reaction with your hair. Never wear one on a date. . wont go over so well
-Paying $36.00 (wow, consumers will pay anything if they need it) for 2 MUCH needed Ponchos.....I mean it people, it was no little rain or mist it was full swing, flooding the park kind of rain.
- Only Craving Churro's....Have you ever had one from Disney Land??!!! Skipping lunch to get a Churro was a normal thing the entire week and of course having them for dessert and lets face it Breakfast too!
-Riding "water rides" while its raining....think about it. You are wearing a poncho to keep the water off you, then you on purpose sit in a log that is floating in water, has water in the log,  ride around with water splashing on you and the wind/ rain soaking you even more, they you go down a 50 foot drop into a bigger water splash...are you suppose to enjoy it or hid from it with your poncho?! And why are you riding it ....that's right because its FREAKING awesome! We were the nut jobs who 1st rode it while wearing ponchos, 2nd continued to ride it because no one else was in line (4 times in a row people) and we LOVED IT!


-Disneyland! (enough said)
- Taking the love of your life to Disneyland and being big kids for a week, no responsibilities, no worries just FUN! 
 - Going in the "off season" and not having to wait longer then 30 min for a ride. 
 -Rain in Disneyland clears the park out. . I mean it goes into a ghost like town in a matter of 30 minutes, and if you are from the Northwest, rain is your middle name, you power through. Causing lines to only be 3-5 min (and that is the time it takes you to walk around all the ropes set out and actually get on the ride)
- California Adventure's new World of Color water show........Amazingly Awesome.
- Starbucks across the street from our Hotel.
-Malibu Weddings, were you get to eat the most DE-lish food EVER, breath taking views, watching your friend get married, paparazzi over head in helicopters (truly a weird thing, I guess there was a celebrity wedding the next hill over) Dancing to Thriller, dancing the night away under the stars on a hill in a vineyard in Malibu! 
-Because of the rain I did get to change and wear all the outfit I packed for the trip (that has never happened for a few reasons, 1. being that I over pack 2. I never have reason to change and be that person that has a new outfit for every meal. But when you are soaked you get to be that girl!!!) And FINALLY my over packing  paid off!

Thank you for listening to my long and could have been longer list of our awesome (not so awkward) time in Disneyland.
