A little Random Today.

Those are the pictures I have had and not used at this point and are too cute not to 1,2 . My nephew Oliver James came over to hang out for the day and he loves wearing hats (or maybe I made him....the details are a little fuzzy) we got some cuddle time in and we watched Yo Gabba Gabba...if you haven't seen it, well you my friend are missing out!! 3. Our big little Hound Dog is such  a cuddly, this is her idea of Heaven, us laying on the floor holding her. What a silly big Hound.

I am off to do a photo shoot for a cute little family with 2 little boys this morning, the weather is holding out...fingers crossed and lots of praying going on to keep it that way! Then a fun trip into Ikea with one of my favorite very pregnant friends!

Have a great Thursday, thank you for stopping by. Dont forget tomorrow is Fashion Friday!!

Easy days

Wednesday Link Ups.

Sometimes my" throw together outfits" are truly my best. I feel the most confident in them and love wearing them all day, I think its ironic that this happens. . the outfits I plan and try to make work I hate but the ones I just go in my closet throw something together and walk out are the best!!! 
 This is one of them! I was so comfortable I wore it all day did house work and worked on my clothes project. Went grocery shopping, took a little cat nap in... I love easy get ready days!

Shoes- Target / jeans- Nordstroms / Shirt- Ann Taylor Loft / Blazer- Forever 21 / Necklace- gifted / Pin- Made by one of my sweet second graders

My First DIY clothing!

My Little Matching Day.

Husband and i are not real big on the hole matchy match thing *well I will be hones,t its more husband  than I, I am a sappy girl that likes to match my lover. But on holidays its the only time we are allowed to match so I went all out this Easter!!

Shoes- On loan from my sis in law / Skirt- Made by Me / Shirt-Ambercrombi / Necklace-Gifted

*Oh he is super sexy!!

He wore his DIY Tie that I made for him all day and wore it proud. I am so in love with this fabric i may have purchased a few extra to many yards....So you may see a few more pieces from it. Its imported cotton from Italy and was on sale...for 1.99 a YARD...Hello could not pass that up. It was exactly what I have been looking for to make a skirt like this! Making it was not too hard...I took apart an old skirt that i didn't like used that as a pattern (worked out wonderful) made 1 practice skirt before I used the good material and then bam went for it. Husbands tie was a little harder since I couldn't take apart one of his Ties to practice so I viewed it while I made it, (no ties where harmed in the making of his new one)!!

We had such a great Easter, celebrating with our family and church family. Good food watched Bubba Watson bring home his first Green Coat at the masters, took Hound Dog on a walk, cleaned the garage , back yard. Big full day!!!

I am headed on a field trip with a sweet special little 3rd Grader today, we are going to Fran's bakery  for a tour and hopefully free samples...:) I was instructed by Howie (the third grader) multiple times... "now Nic and Cole remember no jewelery, no open toes shoes, no high CANT WEAR THAT" The kid is pretty worried I will be all fancied out to go to Fran's.....I promised him I would obey the rules and not make a spectacle of myself!!

its a bold statement


Flats- Old Navy / Pants- American Eagle / Shirt & Sweater- Macy's / Necklace- Gifted from a friend

At one point these where my white American Eagle Jeans and after RIT Dye they are now my Lemon Yellow Capri's!!! Hello Summer outfit for free. We are still experiencing rain, snow, wind and more but if I wear bright enough colors I just know one day the sun will come out and i will be ready for it.

I choose Lemon because I was loving all the colors on pinterest and when I would look in stores they had lighter yellow but also for more money then I wanted to spend so after purchasing RIT for 1.99 and one color wash in the washer I have my very bold statement!

I am linked up with the Blonde Episodes (Fashion Friday) Don't forget to check it out.

I have had writers block for over a week...nothing comes to my mind when I open a new page to write its like one minute there are all these thoughts and the next not even birds are chirping. So these are my thoughts, points, facts that i could and have mustered up!!

-We just submitted our Taxes, Praise the Lord they are done, and I thought we would get more money back because we bought a house....I was wrong, come on people where is my kick back! They (and by they I mean just people) told me when we got married and filled jointly we would get better refunds...WRONG. Then it was "buy a house" .....WRONG now they say have a baby, in fact have an entire herd of them and you will get money back....not to sure I believe them.

-Hound Dog went to the Grooming Barn (our local Pet Groomer) Tuesday, we did a month pass of self wash, I wish I could have videoed that episode. The employee a nice woman about 10 years older then me showed me how to use all the showers and fancy products and left Hound dog and me alone to do it....took about 10 minute of sheer willpower to get my flailing, out of control, smelly 90pound puppy into the tub (3 step on a ladder people, that's all she had to climb) Employee came back in and said these words, which i am pretty proud of "Wow I am impressed you didn't give up, most people after trying that long just leave" I smiled with water all over me and dog hair on my face, said "well see something you should know about  me, I am a fighter and have more stubbornness and determination then this dog, I have to!" we both laughed and for the next 45 min...yes that long I washed and "tried" to dry her...she bit at the blow dryer and howled like an old Blood Hound pro, I felt pretty sorry for the lady washing her well behaved dog next to us. we both walked out clean from our bath!!

-I pretty much have insomnia every night.
-Husband and i are in a littler predicament seeing as he is lactose intolerant and I am allergic to Soy (milk included) needless to say we do not buy milk EVER. But have found Coconut milk, which is dairy and soy free, we win!! This is how I would like my everyday life to be, a good product and day that both husband and I enjoy and a life of small pleasures and finds!

-All I want to eat this week is homemade smoothies, Frozen any kind of fruit, coconut milk, spinach, flax seeds Oh SO GOOD. but I am completely out of everything, Ya for grocery shopping day today!
-Have booked 4 more photo shoots. 2 next week, 1 newborn shoot as soon as baby is born, and family shoot in a few weeks! LOVE IT.

-Have been turned onto Mad Men on netflix...just started season one...oh how i would love to be back in the 60s and wearing those outfits! Adore all of them, havent drawn a conclusion about the show yet.

Well that should be enough to sum up the last few weeks. Have a fabulous Thursday.
