Wow!  The holidays are here already!

I have been so crazy busy!  To be honest I haven't taken a picture with my camera since we got back from Vegas!

Today, I am trying to coast through the workday.  I will be on vacation next week!  I am not sure what I am going to do with my time off, but my husband is off too!  I am sure we will find something fun to do!  He mentioned sledding!  I hate winter activities, but sledding sounds fun!

What are your plans for the holiday?

Happy Holidays to you all!

So, we have a fireplace.  We never use it because the first time we did I am pretty sure the flue was open, but we still got smoked out of our house.

This is one of the only spots in our house for me to take pictures at the moment!  We are starting a remodeling project in the basement and had to move everything upstairs!

Have a great day!

Vegas Baby!

I was in Vegas over the weekend and we had a blast!  My husband and I haven't been there since our honeymoon 2 years ago.  This trip was much better because my husband didn't have a broken leg and he didn't have to use a knee cart to get around!  Yep, you read that right!  My husband broke his leg at his bachelor party 3 weeks before we got married!  I don't even want to talk about it!  :)

Here is the outfit I wore our first night there!  I love the pewter Sven's clogs!

Hope you are having a great Monday!!!

Winter Skin!

I don't know about you all, but my skin gets so dry in the winter!  I am always at a loss for what to do!  This year I decided to take a stand against the dry!  I really didn't know how to get started, but I was at the mall this weekend and saw the Sephora store.  I thought "I know they have a lot of products in one place.  I should check it out".  I must admit that I do not enjoy that the employees pounce on you once you walk in the door, but I was prepared.  I flat out asked for help with moisturizers.  They said that I need to talk with Lilly.  They called her over and she was FANTASTIC!  I explained my issue and my skin type and said that I wanted samples before I purchased.  She was so happy to help and explained the purpose for every product.  With samples in hand I went home and have been using everything she recommended and have been having great results!

Here is what she gave me:

Of course, her suggestions were based on my skin type, but I would recommend that anyone with dry skin issues stop into their local Sephora and see that they have to say!

Have a great day!

Hi all!

I have a few minutes to do a post!  It's unbelievable!

Here is an outfit that I love to wear in the winter.  I am finding that when it gets cold I am all about comfort!

This is a "sweatshirt", but it's a little bit more than a sweatshirt!

What are your favorites for the colder months?


Here is the full info for the Sven's sale this weekend!  Also on clearance are other brands of shoes that they sell at their store (like Clarks)!  Yay!

Have a great day!

Scared ya didn't I!

Happy Friday!

This has been a really long week!  With the weather changing all I want to do is snuggle up in a pile of blankets and eat mashed potatoes!  Yes, that's right mashed potatoes!  Maybe garlic or sour cream and cheese.  Just something stick to the ribs warm!

Alas, I can't just eat mashed potatoes!

Anyway!  Here is an outfit that I wore on Tuesday!  I know that was days ago!

Ada just wanted all of the attention!

Top: Banana Republic
Jeans: Hudson Mia
Shoes: Sven's Clogs

Sven's is at it again!  They are having a sale October 27th and 28th!

Comfy Sweater

Hi all!

Well, the weather is officially not what I want it to be!  I really hate the cold!  At least when it gets cold you get to wear comfy sweaters. 

I look pretty tired in these photos!  The cold does that to me!

Have a great day and snuggle up to someone!

Banana lunch special!

And by Banana, I mean Republic!

I went shopping over lunch today and just happened to stop in at Banana Republic.  They were having a lunch special sale from 11-2 with 40% off all regular priced styles.  Ummm, okay!

In my opinion Banana hasn't had a lot of cute things lately, but they have redeemed themselves.

Here are a few things I got (one of the items I got wasn't on their website, so sorry I can't show it). 

Yay for me!  All at 40% off!  Yay!!!

Hope you have a good Monday!

Ok!  I was literally just sitting here eating my lunch and I had this thought....

For lunch today I got a salad from a salad bar and brought it back to work to eat.  You know when you go to the salad bar you put a little of this and a little of that.  Well, I was eating a little of this and that and I just had the strangest combo on my fork.

Chicken and Egg in one bite.  Is that weird to anyone else?  Does that immediately conjure up the "What came first?  The chicken or the egg?" discussion in your head.  Is it okay to eat the 2 together when you don't know which came first?  I just don't know how I feel about it!  I'm sure I'll eat it anyway!


Remember to check out the sale at Sven's this weekend!!!

Have a Great Day!

Animal Print

So, I must say that I love this shirt!  It has an animal print, but I actual love the colors more!  It helps me be a bit more on board with the animal print.  If you would have asked me 2 years ago if I would wear animal print I would have said "Hell No", but I kinda like it now.  I think it's because most of the prints I choose are not so literal as an animal print.  I choose prints that are a little more subtle.

The photos posted today will be missing my face!  My husband took the pics from the comfort of the couch.  What that means for me is the pics are showing my double chin!  I was looking down at him and he was shooting up!  Yikes!  No Bueno!

Have a great day!

I Love Dahlias!

Hi everyone!

My weekend was pretty relaxing for once!  We didn't have any plans or need to be out of town.  It was also really nice to not have a hangover!  The last month involved a lot of weddings and events where drinking was essential!  This weekend we didn't have a drop.  I must say I feel great for a Monday!

On Saturday we went to the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.  We were hoping to see some color on the trees, but it's a little early for that here in the metro area.  We did however happen upon the Dahlia garden!  I love Dahlias.  The Dahlias that we saw were plants with huge, giant flowers!  They are so pretty!  Lucky for you I took pictures and they turned out great!

Have a great Monday!
