Dress: F21; sandals: Nine West

(sshhh, don't tell hubs I posted this pic ... LOL!) hubs wearing: Express shirt; Levi's jeans

With the busy month my hubs and I have had (including celebrating our 1 year anniversary; several friends and MY b-day), we haven't had much time to travel :(, but luckily we're not too far away from the beach and we try to head out as often as possible for some fun in the sun. For my bday, recently we went sightseeing around the area like a bunch of tourists and actually had a lot of fun. It's something we hadn't done as a couple, since we used to visit these places as children all the time, long before we met. Since it was a SPECIAL occasion, so I thought I'd dress up a little, even though it was really hot. The dress is from the Love 21 at F21 and I really like the design. The shoes weren't too bad for walking around. We went out to eat afterwards and overall had a great day in each other's company for a really good price!

A Little Nauti-cal

Dress: Tulle; Necklace: F21; Shoes:Steven by Steve Madden; belt: Banana Republic (oops, I messed up top pic trying to stretch it out! Grrr...)

So once, I put this outfit together, I realized it's a little fall-ish, but I am running out of cute, yet professional outfits for work in this heat! And there's no way my blazers or cardigans are coming out of my closet any time soon. Still, I decided to wear this outfit because I thought it had a nautical feel to it, which to me says summer! I love this dress even though it's a little big. It's from Tulle, and I got it on sale at a great deal. The bow belt is one of my faves, and I simply cannot find enough outfits to wear these heels with!

My hubs and I had a great anniversary weekend! Thanks everyone for the well-wishes!

Happy Anniversary!

My husband and I were married 8/8/08. I've always believed 8 is my lucky number, and I was so glad everything fell into place and we were able to get married on that day. Maybe the date had nothing to do with it, but it has been a wonderful marriage thus far!


Dear Hubs,

I can't believe it's been a year already! I am so happy and proud to be your wife. I hope you know how much I love you and appreciate everything you do. I love you for always trying to do your best in everything and in turn making me a better person. I love you for for driving me around as often as possible, because you know I hate driving. I love you for always saying every meal I cook is amazing, even when it's just turkey hotdogs. I love you for being so great with our "boys" and can't wait until you're a daddy. I love you for helping me pick out what shoes to wear, even though you know I will pick the opposite. I love you for always being up for whatever spontaneous thing I want to do, no matter how crazy it may sound. I love you for loving my family as much as I love them. I know they adore you. I love you for always encouraging my hopes and dreams. I know the road has not always been easy or perfect, but I know you will always be there walking by my side, looking out toward our future together. Thank you for being such a great husband. I thank God everyday for putting you in my life. Love, your wife

"Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two." -St. Augustine

Skirting the Issue

blouse: Express; skirt: Tulle; shoes: Oh Deer

I am so tired, but I still had the urge to blog about my outfit for the day. I got this skirt from Tulle and absolutely loved the print so much that I bought a dress in the same print. I got a really good deal on a couple of items from the site and found the quality of the clothing really good. Oh, and they donate a portion of amount you spend to one of their selected charities, which is awesome. Doing some good while you shop! I would have preferred to wear a white tank in this 100+ weather, but that wouldn't fly at my job, so a white button down was the best I could do. The red shoes, I love. I'm addicted to buying red shoes and cannot be stopped! ;)

It was such a busy day today at work and then I had a meeting where I had to make crafty projects for a big event I'm helping out with, but it was fun. Now I'm just so drained and really can't wait for our anniversary weekend! No concrete plans yet, but we'll see where the road takes us!

Blue Paisley

shirt: GAP; skirt: Express; shoes: Macy's; bracelet: F21

Ya, I listen to country, sometimes. And BRAD Paisley is one of my faves. Anywho, it's back to a normal work week for me, which means no more extended weekends. I'm gearing up for a busy month. I love August. My birthday is around the corner, and this weekend I get to celebrate my BIG ONE year anniversary with my husband. I can't believe it's been a year already! I'm nost sure what gift to get him. I know he's been wanting a Playstation 3 for awhile, but then he also hinted at wanting an XBOX 360. He's not really a huge gamer, but I know he'd like one for when he has downtime, which isn't often. Plus, we'll be able to rock out with RockBAND! I will probably just let him pick. We have plans to get away for the weekend, so that'll be fun. I'm counting down the days!

The shirt has a cool paisley, snowflake looking print. The crisp white skirt is very cool, and I love these shoes and always feel like I can't wear them enough!
