Anyway, the color I got, I was debating over. I wasn't sure it would look good on my skin because I get the red around the nails after a while, and while not so much on my feet, but I was nervous. Anyway, I ended up going for the color my eyes were set on, OPI's Skull and Glossbones.
I can't even describe this color appropriately, but it's from the Pirates of the Caribbean color theme they had. It's like a light gray.
And even still, a little bit lighter than what this picture portrays. Anyhow, look at all the variations. This color will work in ANY season. I really love it.
but with different shoes. A little too boring to go through the whole process of taking pictures, editing, posting bla bla.
But I will bring you a funny video of my adorable son "dancing" his butt off:
This morning, when I played him Foster the People's Pumped Up Kicks, he bobbed his head. I'm glad he knows when it's appropriate to booty pop versus head bang. (lol)
Mama taught him well.

I hate Sammy shes so stupid i cant take it.
I started this blog last night after the show, and after they showed previews for the show that will air this Sunday before the VMA's. Truth is, I don't hate the show, but it is my guilty pleasure. I can't stand Sammy and how stupid she is though.
In other news, I bought these pants from Mustard Seed the day after the earthquake. They were only $8 and from gap. I especially LOVE the color, but you can't really see the richness of the color in these photos. They are this beautiful, dark green color. I can't wait to wear them with boots too. Crazy part though, they are size 6 in gap, which means I really might be a size 8 at this point. A little scary. I need to cool it on the magnum bars.
We tried different lighting, but the pants look even darker in the photos below. I really need to learn to utilize all that I can do with an slr camera.
Appreciate what you got and try to enjoy the rainy days with some cuddling and reading.

Stay safe ya'll!

Also, Michael surprised me with DOMO!!!!
Me being excited (even though I look like a heffer, for real):
I was super excited when I saw this skirt at goodwill, because I had been wanting a black maxi skirt, AND this skirt is currently $30 from from Old Navy! I wonder why someone gave it away already, but you know what they say, one mans trash is another mans treasure. Holla!

Here are some pictures I have to share from the past week:
My neighbors dog, Kale. She's beautiful! I have always wanted a pit. I just love her:
Devin and Dad on their way to the fair:
Devin petting a bunny for the first time, at the fair:
DOMO PRIZE at the fair! I really wanted one :(
My little man tearing up some asparagus. Good for him!
I got surprised with a beautiful bouquet of flowers Friday evening. Seriously, the prettiest flowers I've EVER gotten! I love them:
Pretty, right? I hope you have a happy Monday and a great week!

I went to the county fair last night. I only got a few pics, but nothing spectacular. I may or may not share them. Anyway, here is Mondays' outfit. I know, I'm behind!

Anyway, I have alwaaayyysss wanted to get an awesome picture of lightning. Last night, we went to dinner and on our way home, since I wasn't driving and the lightning was back to back, I snapped a million pictures, and was super excited to see the outcomes. There were plenty of boring pictures, and just plain black pictures, but I got a couple GREAT pictures too! Granted, they aren't the best quality, and there are a million better ones out there, but remember, these were taken with my iphone. I love them:
Pretty cool, huh? It was a super crazy storm, and I loved every second of it. I wanted to post these last night, but I had a killer migraine. I can't wait to take some even better ones with my camera and tripod :)
Have a happy Monday and a great week!

Here are (I think) Thursdays outfit pics:
And one of my lil man in his new sneakers, I think "sporty" on little baby's and toddlers is so cute!
I might be back later today or tomorrow to show you Friday's outfit. I really loved it! It was simple and comfortable, but the color combo is what made it. I did the whole, "like colors" idea I learned from the J. Crew Catalogs (read about this concept here ).
Oh, and I scored major big yesterday on a, 'fill a bag of clothes for $10' thrift store sale. It's supposed to be at the end of the month, so I didn't expect them to have it yesterday. I made sure to pick pieces I only loved (I'm really working on that). When I tried everything on at home last night, everything fit! And all but two things are vintage and super cute! Major, major score!
Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

If you haven't noticed, I have gained quite a bit of weight. I've always had a fast metabolism, and have always hated being too skinny. But a month or two ago, I wasn't too skinny, I was probably a perfect weight, plus a little pooch. All of a sudden ( and 23,532 cupcakes later), I gained a whopping 12 pounds. My pooch is getting harder and harder to hide, so it was time to start working out. I have been doing Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred. Today, will be day 3. That jaunt is hard. I read great reviews about it after Dev was born, but probably only did it a couple times. The stress of being a new parent + house buying + job seeking, oh, and plus breastfeeding, helped me lose the weight.
So now I leave you with yesterday's pictures, and yes, I realize I don't look big in them.
I actually did something different with my hair:
here's one side:
And the other:
Oh, and I wanted to share this pic because Devin is wearing a very cute Barcelona futball outfit, thanks to his Aunt Vanessa! Isn't it adorable?!
So there you have it! Now I gotta get to those crunches and butt kicks. See ya soon!
Disclaimer: I do not think I am "fat." However, I realize I could stand to lose a couple pounds and definitely tone up. Otherwise, I am happy with my curves. I think curves on woman are beautiful, and I think life is too short not to eat yummy ass food. I'll dedicate a whole post to my philosophy on woman and body image issues sometime soon.

The midi is a mid length skirt or dress- it's not too long (like a maxi), and certainly not short (like a mini). It's just a classic, chic length and look. It can be dressed up or down. You can be short or tall, and still easily pull off the look with the right shoes (and length). Here are some images I've found (and loved) from Pinterest to give you some inspiration and insight on "the midi":
If you're diggin the trend like I am, I would hit up your local thrift store, as I'm sure you will find a plethora of mid length skirts to enjoy this fall.
So, what do you think about it? Do you like the classic look?

Anyhow, I have a couple pictures to share.
Devin and I at dinner Saturday night:
My vintage bracelet I've mentioned a few times:
That is all. I hope your week goes by fast!

Alas, I decided to deal with the one picture I had. Unfortunately, I don't think the picture does the outfit a lot of justice. When I paired this outfit together, I was really very proud of myself. I would have never pictured the two colors together, but somehow I did, made it work, and was very proud. So again, I know the outfit seems kinda 'meh,' but I was proud. Here it is:
