sheeer to black

The other night was my lovely friend Mian's 21st birthday!! She's basically the last one in our group of friends who needed to turn 21 lol so now no one will be left out when we go out! Anways, my dumb camera died before we got to the shin-dig. This shin-dig of course was located in D.C. where it's very easy to go from the really ritzy parts to the friggin G H E T T O in a matter of seconds. Of course we thought we knew where we were so we got out & started walking. People thought I was a hooker (the 5in wedges whoopsies) like 20 people were out in their yards doing lawn work at 11pm ... yeah we should have picked up on those subtle details. The point of the story is we ended up there safe, & now our little Mian can legally drink partayyyy!!!
for now on I'm calling these shoes the "hookers" haha 
sorry for the poor quality picture
next BIG purchase a new camera!

Just Another Manic Monday Oooooooh Oooooohh

So can I just say how much of a D O R K I am. Anyways last night I was working on my online homework (Boo) & of course I was like "let me check out my blog that way I can still look like I'm working on my paper but get to actually do something I like instead!" Yes so to my shock & my HAPPINESS I saw that I had 17 comments! Eeek that's the most I've ever received on a single post so I wanted to say thank you to all of you, your comments made me really happy! Yupp, sorry for the sporadic use of all of the CAPITALS. I'm excited for another reason.... my husband got into business school!!! Yayy congrats Babe :) so of course to celebrate we had a little impromptu lunch date at Mi Hacienda. Get ready for some pics ..
haha he hates having his picture taken 
ME: a tostada, an enchilada, & a quesadilla    DAVID: steak fajitas & beans 



ancient jeans shorts AE, boat building T (my Dad's), arrowhead necklace F21
I know this is a super casual outfit, but honestly it's really comfy & this T-shirt has a lot of sentimental value to me (cause it was my Padre's) Thanks again for all the L O V E! I'm off to work, & then after that we're having a company bowling party so expect to see pics tomorrow!
 & for everyone who gave my advice for my EURO Trip next summer thanks!!

Happy Father's Day!!

Although my Dad probably won't read this post, it is Father's Day & I LOVE my Padre!! My Dad is the most hard working, noble, kind, thoughtful, sweet, considerate, loving person I know. Seriously, I can't say enough about him except that I know that I am so lucky & blessed to have him as my Dad. He has always supported me in everything I've done & he's always willing to listen to me & my ramblings. Anyways, even though I won't get to spend today with him I just wanted to share a little post about him! I hope all of you can enjoy today & reminisce about fun memories you've had with your Dads!
don't ask about my outfit lol
my proud Papa

going GREEN

This summer my philosophy for my wardrobe is easy, cool, & cute (well I try). I bought this green skirt at a thrift store a couple months ago & I hemmed it a couple inches with my sewing machine to make it a little more wearable (Yes Mom I'm using it). I never thought that this skirt would get as much wear as it has, but it's so freaking practical/wearable! You can wear it with T-shirts, tank tops, tube tops... you name it, it works! I wore it in Ohio while I was there out to dinner with my family, & I was lounging around the house in it today. My day was earth-shatteringly crazy jkjk sorry no need for sarcasm I literally spent the day sewing & chopping old T-shirts up, catching up on episodes of the Bachelorette, & I went to the gym!! (don't worry I'm as shocked as you are). Yupp, enough blabbering here's the pictures!



 skirt & shirt-Thrifted, bandeau-Victorias Secret 

Off to work it is, Happy Wednesday!! 
& to all of you who have been leaving comments THANKS!! I really love reading them!!

snap shots from the weekend

I'm sure you're all sick of hearing me talk about Ohio, but unfortunately that's not gonna stop me lol. While I was visiting home I got to hang out with my best friend Mika (also my maid of honor) for an entire day. It was so much fun we went to the pool. joked about stupid stuff we did when we were younger, & we went to Bar Louie for dinner. I'm sure all of you have that one friend who's just always been there, & I'm lucky enough to have Mika as mine. Here are a couple outfit shots of what I wore that night to dinner.
hello MySpace picture
tank top-Macys (borrowed from Mika), mini skirt-Express, heels-Nine West, purse-Big Buddha
PS: If anyone knows how to make the little tabs at the top underneath the tittle & are feeling super-duper nice & want to explain it to me I would LOVE you forever!!

ROOOAD-T-R-I-P

So as most of you know I just got home from O-H-I-O & I decided that instead of flying back that I'd ride back with my friend Bo (he just got a job here so he had to move all his stuff). We had so much fun talking, joking, eating, singing, etc. etc. etc... It gave me an idea to make a roadtrip survival guide!
1. Refreshing drinks that will keep you hydrated & awake for your drive.
2. CLIF bars are really yummy & have a lot of protein that way you can postpone ordering that bigMAC
3. SUSHI (I just bought this because EEL is my favorite)
4. Nail Polish because since you're stuck in a car you can actually allow your nails the proper time to dry
5.the BEST C H I P S EVERRR! So scrumptious & they're a little spicy so that your eyes stay open :)
6. dried apple rings so that you have something healthy to pick at when you're bored.
Yupp, so now you're prepared to handle any road trip obstacle that comes your way. This has been a public service announcement (sorry I thought it was starting to sound like one).

Oh I forgot you definitely need music so that you can rock out like this ....
(sorry I don't know why the sound didn't work)

Operation Glitter

So I know it's been a while I took a quick trip home to Ohio & I've been here (OHIO) since Wednesday. It's been a crazy couple of days, but the kind of wonderful crazy where it's filled with all of the people you love. As promised I'm finally about to post the D.I.Y. that I did last weekend. I got the idea from the little blacklist. Hope you enjoy! Now to start off with a little inspiration!
(don't judge me this is the first collage I've ever done on the computer).
these are just a cheap pair of heels I've never worn from Wet Seal
I just bought these at Michael's  
after doing this I learned it's better to spray outside lol
my favorite part
shake off excess glitter & spray sealant 
let them dry off & continue to shake off excess glitter & apply more coats of sealant
that way you won't leave glitter
E V E R Y W H E R E like I did ... whooops


Anyways I've got plenty of stories & pictures to share with all of you, but I'll start pulling all that together when I'm back at home. Bye Ohio, I'm off to go sit in a car for 7 1/2 hours .. be jealous verrry jealous! How do you guys stay occupied on long road trips?? All I can promise is lots of snack eating & music blaring.
