Sh*t My Husband Says...8.31.11

Hubby: You have super pretty eyes today.
Me: Awe, thanks J.
Hubby: I want to stick my pool cue in your eye and twist...
Me: WHAT THE F*CK ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?
Hubby: Your eyes are "cue chalk blue. I like that color."

Gosh I love this guy.

Dress: Target
Sandals: Dillard's
Earrings: World Market...thanks  Mom!

Bracelet: World Market

Locket Necklace: this was Gram's from ages ago...I don't even know how old it is but the clock inside cannot be fixed (if that is any indication of its age).

Make-Up + Jewelry of the Day: 08.28.11

Today's outfit was blah...comfy, but nothing to brag about (I did have some new earrings on though). However, I decided to try some new colors from my eye shadow pallet and I was really happy with the way my eye make-up came out today!

Necklace: Dillard's
Earrings: Target (clearance for under $6)

I picked out 2 green colors from the shadow pallet but when I applied them, they came out a lot more on the blue side than I though. I was still happy w/ the results though...:)
...and here is another pic of the hairstyle I will be rockin' for a bit since I am trying NOT to cut it!

Outfit of the Day: 08.27.11 and a "Hair Situation"...

Dress: Kohl's
Sandals: Dillard's
Necklace: Barse at Dillard's (I only buy this brand when it is on MEGA sale- originally $99 paid $20)
Earrings: Barse at Dillard's (I picked these up a while ago on MEGA sale...I think I paid less than $10)
Bracelet: Barse at Dillard's (MEGA sale- originally $68 paid $14)
Ok...my "hair situation"- I am trying VERY HARD to let it grow out a little and I tell you, it is killin' me!! I think I am going to be rockin' this style for a while. I am off to a baby shower today (a pool party!) so I thought I would give in to the inevitable...once I step out in the 91% humidity, my hair would curl/frizz up anyway!

My saving grace is that I get the wavy volume in my hair from my Dad...Mom's hair is pin straight!

It's that time again...WTF is my hair doing???

Yesterday, I was a mere 2 seconds away from cutting my hair at work with the craft scissors...

As I ran down the hall at work looking for a bobby-pin or clip of some sort, my friend Mel came to my rescue. In a serious effort to let my hair grow a bit, this is the latest look I have resorted too...I feel a trim coming very soon...

Violent Offenders...

Ripped, cut, bleeding, tearing, poked, squeezed, throbbing, soreness...what am I talking about you ask? 

The various stages of MY FEET lately!!

I have been having some problems with my feet. I suspect is has everything lot to do with the shoes that I have been wearing. As hard as the decision was, I have to get rid of these "violent offenders." All I know is that when my feet hurt, my WHOLE BODY hurts from head to toe:






I have to wonder why shoes feel and look FABULOUS while I am in the store but when I get home and wear them out...argh!! Someone shopping at my local Goodwill will be one lucky girl!
