Make a Statement

Hello Hello!!

Below is an outfit I wore last week to take Miss Libbey to the doctor. I was in a hurry, so I just threw something together! I usually throw on a statement necklace if I feel like I need to spice up my outfit a little! I love huge necklaces! They can totally make an outfit! This necklace is a good piece to help me transition in to spring! I love the colors! You will probably see me wearing it all the time! Don’t judge me!

Bald is Beautiful

Good morning!! I hope it is warmer where you are! It was 3 degrees when I got in my car this morning..really winter??? Enough already!!!
I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! I spent the weekend with my sister and on Saturday we had a “head shaving party!” My cousin was recently diagnosed with brain cancer. She is currently undergoing chemo and radiation. She is doing so well! I have never seen someone so positive and upbeat! She is the strongest, most amazing person I know. She definitely does not let cancer get her down! She just says that it is “God’s will and she is not afraid!” I feel I take life for granted a lot , so I’m trying to slow down and learn from my cousin and cherish every moment! One of my cousins owns a hair salon, so we had food and beverage and she shaved heads! All of the money from the hair cuts is going to be donated to St. Jude’s Hospital! I am so proud of my cousin! She is so selfless! She could care a less about hair!! She definitely rocks the bald head! She is beautiful!!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you guys are staying warm! It is -11 degrees here today-brrr! Yesterday was the beginning of the majority of bad weather and the snow and I had a baby shower to host. Craziness, I know. Not many people ended up coming, but the decorations were super cute and my friend still had a really good time. I clearly had to wear my Hunter boots since since we had almost a foot of snow. I also put the liners in my boots to keep my feet toasty!

My little family and my mom are heading to Texas in the morning to visit family. Everyone is so excited to meet miss Libbey.

I didn’t get out much this weekend because of all of the snow, but I go for a quick trip with my best friend to pick up her wedding dress! Since there was snow I wore my hunter boots, DUH. Me and Amanda are obviously obsessed. I think we need more colors and styles. If only money grew on trees. I barely even got dressed this weekend, woops. You’re aloud to do that when there are snow storms though, right? I did get to babysit Libbey though while Amanda was hosting the baby shower. She was a happy baby!

We hope anyone else in a bad weather stays safe!

I love these pink wedged heels because not only do they make my outfit a little dressier, but are comfortable to wear for a longer period of time.

Hope everyone has a FAB Friday!
