The one with the blue skirt and baby animals

Top and Skirt: T.J. Maxx, Necklace: Charming Charlie, Watch: Fossil, Shoes: Off Broadway Shoes, various bracelets, Nails: Sally Hansen “blue me away”, Lips: Estee Lauder “frosted apricot”

I went to my parents’ house to take these outfit pictures, and they reminded me that they have all of the cutest little animals in the world. The chihuahua is actually my sister’s, and the kitten my parents. They definitely brighten up any outfit post!

Did you hear my shouts for joy when I found this skirt at my beloved T.J. Maxx, for $13?! You did? I thought so. I bought it to have something cute and unexpected to wear, like on a date night. Ross loved it, so that was a success! :) Have you guys found anything outstanding for a super great price lately?

A Happy Anniversary

On the day these photos were taken, three years ago, we had absolutely no idea what we were doing. Ha, I say that as if we know what we’re doing now! But, three years of marriage have brought us a long way. We are so blessed to celebrate the life we have built together. It really is incredible, to look back and see how far we’ve come, in every aspect. I love this man. A very happy anniversary, it is.

Memorial Day Insta-grab

Some of our adventures at Freedom Weekend Aloft – it was HOT! (P.S. Awkward face in the third picture… I don’t even know…)  My pretty lily blooming in our front yard. Some summer necessities – shape magazine, some light colored jewelry, sunnies, and my favorite nail polish colors. Me and my sister at a family cook-out (we promise we didn’t plan to match! We always do that, it’s not even surprising anymore… haha) … And a beautiful sunset to end a long weekend. Happy Memorial Day, everyone!

Mint Candy

Top: Willi Smith, Skirt: T.J. Maxx, Shoes and Necklace: old, Hair-pin: gift

I really love mint and blush together. Siiigh. Wish I had painted my nails mint. ;) There’s a reason they’re blue, and you’ll see that soon! As you can tell, we live out in the country. Really, we live right off of one of the busiest roads in our area, but we are only minutes away from locations like this, as well. And I really like the abandoned barn backdrop!

Jeans: Charlotte Russe, Top: T.J. Maxx, Shoes: Target, various necklaces/bracelets

This magenta color is another favorite of mine. It’s one of those subconscious favorites, in that you didn’t go out and proclaim magenta as the love of your life, but one day, you woke up, and half of your closet was pinkish-purple.  That’s how I handle most things – subconsciously.

I’m so excited about this weekend – Memorial Day weekend is always one of my favorites, because it’s a long weekend, and our wedding anniversary always falls around it! We plan to go to Freedom Weekend Aloft – a Memorial Day celebration here in our town. Something you must know about me – I love all types of amusement parks, theme parks, fairs, festivals, and parades. They make me so happy! (I don’t even like to ride any of the rides at parks and fairs… I just like walking around, people watching and taking in the sights, scents and sounds.) What are your plans for Memorial Day weekend? I hope it’s great, whatever you do!
