Bohemian Summer

I've got a fun little polish for your today. I'm currently sporting Urban Outfitters Bohemian Summer. It's a pretty light blue glitter speckled polish. (Makes me think of bird eggs.) It has a hint of dustiness to it which I love. The formula was a little thick, but I certainly didn't mind.

And here are a couple of bonus pictures because one of my pups wanted to get in on the act, hehe!

Weekend Wrap Up: OOTD, Rivers, and Candy!

Our Sunday's have become quite eventful days. I look forward to them. We go to Church and then we do some shopping and usually have plans with friends. It's exhausting, but oh so fun!

We hit up the new Urban Outfitters that opened downtown. After that we went down to one of the new openings of the River Walk. Then we headed to Trader Joe's because I needed my herb and spices popcorn and pineapple juice hehe!

Dress: Target (here)
Chambray Shirt: Delias (old)
Sandals: Target (here)
Headband: Loft

This dragonfly landed on my head and scared the poo out of me until I figured out what it was haha!

Love this fella! 

Orly's Sparkling Garbage

After all of that we went to the Mast General Store and this is what happened: 

Yay for candy and stuffed weenie dog toys named Frank! Haha. We ended the evening with dinner at Red Robin with our friends Jeff and Jill. Good times! Once we were home we watched some good ole reality tv and I played a pc game with my brother. Then I passed out. Another successful Sunday in the books!

I Choose You - Some Things I'm Loving

I've got another Things I'm Loving post for you today. There was a lot to love this week. There always should be though, right?

Song: Sara Bareilles has a new album out and I'm totally in love with a particular song on the album called 'I Choose You.' It makes me think of my Husband (and Pokemon haha). I think this would be perfect at our Wedding Reception we'll have on our Anniversary next year.

Birthday's: My Husbands 30th Birthday was a lot of fun. I really think he enjoyed his day a lot. Read more about his Birthday here! It was also our pup Penny's 7th Birthday!

Hippie Hair etc: I simply adore this headband. I found it at Loft last Sunday. My Brother and Husband said I look like a hippie. I'm down with that. I wore this look a few days ago when we went to my Husband's boss's house to see the new baby! He was super precious and I loved getting to hold him for a while and have him nap on me. =)

Puppy Kisses: Enough said. 

Flowers: Surprise flowers are always awesome! Hubby brought these beauties home on Thursday. They smell amazing!

Games and my Bro: And now to show you my truly geeky side. I finally got back to some gaming this week with my Brother. We've had lots of fun with a new game. We talk over skype and play together. It's been quite the mood booster. I love my brother!

That's all for now y'all! If you'd like to join the link up you can go to Katie Did What!

My Husband's 30!

On Tuesday my Husband celebrated his 30th Birthday. It's crazy to think I've known him since he was 21 and look at him now hitting the big 30. This man is my rock and I'm so thankful for him and his love.

Since I had still been recovering from my surgery I decided to get crafty and make the majority of his Birthday surprises. I made a shabby chic Happy Birthday banner, card, and a book with 30 Reason's why I love him. I also got him a few little Under Armour surprises. I decorated everything the night before so when he woke up for work he would see it all.

He loved his new Under Armour goodies. That evening we went to Red Lobster for dinner. It was yummy. We headed home and lit the candles on his Birthday cake. The same cake we had at our Wedding and on my Birthday. I think this will be a tradition. =)

Our pup Penny also shares her Birthday with her Daddy. She turned 7! Gosh she's such a grown up! She got an extra large rawhide bone and a new toy! The bone was hit!

A Superhero and a Princess - Some Things I'm Loving!

I decided to try a link up for the first time via Katie Did What. It's a Saturday series in which she and others talk about things they've been loving in the last week. Sounds fun to me, so here we go!

Fun Presents: My husband got me these cute Thor and Ariel figures this week. Love! I'm a big nerd, and it was the sweetest thing that he got these for me.

My Hubby: My husband has been amazingly awesome this last month while I've been recovering from my appendectomy. I couldn't ask for a more caring, loving man! He turns 30 on Tuesday so I've been doing some fun prep for that while he's been at work this week. I can't wait for him to see everything!

Sketching: I haven't done any in a while and decided that needed to change. I had some Little Mermaid inspiration, and loved the outcome. I need to draw more!

Work: I don't want to say much yet, but I've been very blessed with a new opportunity. This is what I had been waiting for and I'm so grateful that others support me and think I'm good at what I do. I love being a photographer and I can't wait to get back at it!

That's all for now! Thanks for reading!

Weekend Wrap Up: 4th of July Edition

Last week was the first time I was able to start getting around post surgery. It was nice to get out of the house. I had a follow up with my surgeon and he was pleased with how things were going. Its been a slow process, but things get better day by day.

My Husband took me to see fireworks on the 4th of July and I was so excited. It was a fun night. I've always liked the 4th and fireworks. It's a holiday I have fond memories of.

My Festive 4th Outfit:
Top- Target
Bottoms- Crimson Tribal Exuma Pants from Boca Leche
Sandals(not that you can see them)- Target

On Sunday the Hubby and I had a busy day. We went to Church with friends which was fun. Then we shopped a little and I got a smoothie from DQ that matched my skirt perfectly haha. I also got a few early Birthday gifts for my Hubby. (He turns 30 next week!) We then we to see Despicable Me 2 later in the afternoon with friends. It was so cute! To round out our evening we went to a Birthday dinner for another friend and her Husband. She is expecting and is just so cute. I love hearing about all of it! 
I was totally wiped out after all of that. I haven't had such an eventful day in a while. It's a bit rough on the belly so I'll take it easy this week.

I can't wait for this movie! (This is also my only ootd. If I turned to the side I looked pregnant from bloating and swelling. I'm ready for that to go away haha.)
