Sunday Social: Random.

In hopes that I’ll continue blogging I’m linking up with Neely today for Sunday Social… this week we are playing catch up with life. Easy, peezy, lemon squeezy…
Sunday Social

1. What is on my current wishlist…

I want a new pair of chestnut colored boots. A new pair of cowboy boots. Sweaters. Patterned skinnies. Some color stay lip color. I’m really digging wearing color on my lips lately but it never seems to stay on long. And I want a lot of black… I’m usually all about color but recently I’ve wanted more neutral tones in my wardrobe.

2. Share a new app that I have recently discovered:

Honestly, I don’t know. I tend to use the same apps – I did recently download Evernote, but I haven’t really used it yet…

3. What is a new fall TV show that has been added to the DVR???

Nashville. I’m obsessed. {I think we’ve been over this… ;)} I think that’s the only new show that I’m completely obsessed with. So good… if you aren’t watching it… start.

4. Share my social media links for y’all to follow me on… Cause you know you wanna! And which is my favorite…

Twitter , Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram – I enjoy them all for different reasons. How’s the for having a favorite?!

5. What is a TV show or Movie or Song you could listen to or watch over and over and over and never get tired of…feel free to name one of each:

TV Show – Friends, Full House, Boy Meets World, One Tree Hill. Movie – Dirty Dancing, The Notebook, Legally Blonde, and chic flick really. Song – Kip Moore’s album, Jana Kramer’s album, anything Jason Aldean or Kate Voegele

And there we have – the questions you’ve been dying to know. 😉

Have a wonderful end to your weekend. I’m off to hopefully go to the gym and decide on what’s for dinner tonight… I’m thinking homemade pizza…


About the leopard print…

Naturally, I watched the CMA’s last night {if you didn’t know that I LOVE country music… you do now} and to my Twitter followers, I apologize… I just had to live tweet my thoughts on the event. It happens… and my friend Ellie, she wrote her commentary out in a blog post… CRACKED. ME. UP. {Go read it now… then come back…}

Now, a few of my thoughts… Where was Kip Moore?? I need Carrie Underwood’s leg workout. NEED. Jason Aldean will always, always, always be my favorite. Country musicians are just sexy. Period. All of them… Luke, Jake, Jason, Erin, Jana, Carrie… seriously, share that with us, please. The Willie Nelson tribute was fantastic. Tim and Kenny are getting old. Was Faith wearing braces? The Zac Brown Band is amazing.  And sorry, Taylor… I still am not a huge fan.

And… I need to go to the CMA’s next year.

On another note –

I’m rocking some leopard leggings today {I got them a couple of months ago but hadn’t decided on them yet…}


What do you think? Yay? Nay? I love leopard. as much as I love country music – and that’s a lot. 

What are you up to this weekend?

Happy Friday, little Cheetahs!

I haven’t given into the T. Swift craze.

Its Ok Thursdays


It’s been a hot minute since I’ve linked up for “It’s ok” Thursday… and in loo of trying to keep myself blogging… I thought I’d make it a comeback.

It’s ok…

to get completely frustrated with your computer because your webcam isn’t working. I really wanted to post a vlog… but alas, it won’t allow it.

to watch Friends, at least once… every. single. day. {I’m watching it as we speak…}

to have cereal and wine for dinner. Some nights I just don’t feel like cooking. And really want a glass of wine.

to be looking forward the election being over so I don’t hear the commercials everywhere. All the time. Even on Pandora?!

to have opted against wearing makeup all week for a few more minutes in my warm bed.

to be in love with Deacon on Nashville… and? He’s 47… he looks damn good for 47. #yum

to have not given into the Taylor Swift “Red” craze… yet.

to have already worn my fur vest like 5 times already this fall. #obsessed

See, obsessed.


Happy Thursday, chica’s!


{Semi} Wordless Wednesday {My Life}

1. Sangria for Missy’s birthday. 2. My favorite fruit combination. Anything that’s strawberry/banana is good in my book. Especially the fruits themselves! 3. After our Relive the Moment shoot {more on that later} Amy and I decided to splurge on ice cream for dinner. Such a good decision. I had Oreo Cream Filling… best. thing. ever. 4. Red bull = my life blood. {this is no joke}. 5. Zucchini casserole. Holy cheesy, zucchiniy deliciousness. I’ll post the recipe I concocted soon. 6. Our new tea cups {filled with sleepy time tea – such a good idea!}… doesn’t it remind you of Chip from Beauty and the Beast? No? I’m the only adult without a child who watches Disney? … cool.

Moving on…

1. I LOVEEEEE wearing shorts and cowboy boots {y’all probably gathered that from the title of my blog, huh? #captainobvious} – maybe one of my favorite combinations. I mean, I’d wear boots with just about anything.  2. Ever have a morning where washing your hair sounds like nothing but pure, time consuming torture? That was me. However, I did manage to throw on a cute vintage Amrie Boutique headband. 😉 3. Please tell me this is not the best picture of me ever… I’m oozing sexy with my hands full of ice cream. You know you love it… Thank you, Amy for capturing me in my true essence. #not 😉

1. Last night we had an impromptu girls night. {Seriously LOVE these two.} It was Missy’s birthday and Amy was sick – I kept telling her all day that she just needed some whiskey; it’ll cure what ails ya… at least that’s what my Grandpa used to say. 2. Gallery Hop at the studio Saturday night – it was the unveiling of the Faces of Autism project and it went fabulously. 3. Dinner at Bucca Di Beppo for Missy’s bday last night – DELICIOUS!

I’m linking up with Flip Flops & Pearls for {Semi} Wordless Wednesdays.

She sees the world through coral lenses… {Pinteresting Tuesday}

I need these pants.

I'm intrigued. Mint, blood orange, whiskey sour.

Coral. Coral. Coral. Do not be surprised if I sport something similar very, very soon.

Matte. Coral. Stripes.

Beyond true.

Coral and Orange.

Great use of a small place... and I adore the coral/blue room.

Words I try to live by.

Coral. I absolutely adore this color. It’s timeless.

Happy Tuesday, sweets. Don’t forget to stop over and see what my sweet friend, Beth in pinning this week!

What I’m Wearing. {Monday. Ugh.}

It’s Monday. And I think this Monday hates me. I’ve spilled coffee all over my kitchen. Couldn’t find anything to wear because it’s cold. Dropped my phone and the battery went flying. Technology hates me. I didn’t eat breakfast and I forgot my lunch. {All due to the massive spill this morning}. I slept with my hair wet and can we please note how fabulous that turned out? Can I get a restart button, pretty please?

Okay, okay, I’m done whining.

Earrings//Kohl’s. Cardigan// J.C. Penney {years ago} Gingham button up// Target {many years ago} Jeggings// Hollister. Scrunchy Boots// Marshalls {please excuse the no makeup look too, ugh.}

Please tell me you’re having a better Monday. {yes, I know it could be much worse – but I just needed to complain for a minute, ok? ok.}

What I’m Wearing. {Old clothes, that’s what.}

I wish, wish, wish I would stop sneezing and being stuffy. I’m SOOO over it. Last night I had a hot toddie {whiskey, tea, lemon, honey} for the first time and I think that’s what every sick person needs. It made me feel much better while I was drinking it. But I still woke up feeling yucky. So, I threw this on. Literally, just threw it on… it was one of those “just get dressed and look alive” mornings. I think everything I have on is like 3 years old.

Also, who wants to trade me closets? #pleaseandthankyou

Earrings// Forever 21. Pink Cardi// Express {I honestly think it’s from senior year of HS} Turq V-neck// Wal-mart. Skirt// American Eagle {by way of Amy’s closet} Yellow Sandals// Target {little girls}

Happy Wednesday… again.

What I’m Wearing. {Dear Winter, go away.}

Well, that little taste of spring and summer has disappeared. It’s cold. I don’t like it. I do believe it’s made me a bit of a grump, but whatever. 🙂 However, that’s no reason to not wear bright, happy colors… right? right! {excuse the blurriness of the photo – it happens.}

Turq. Infinity Scarf// Made by me. Pink Blazer// Thrifted. Then altered by me. White long sleeve// Hollister. White flowy tank// Ruehl {may you rest in peace}. Black Leggings// Forever 21. Gray Slouchy Boots// Marshall’s.
