Christmas already...

>> Sunday, November 28, 2010

We will soon be entering December and Christmas will be here before we know it! I LOVE Christmas. Always have, always will. I love spending time with my family, buying presents for others and getting excited about watching them open the gifts, baking and making treats for friends and neighbors and making new traditions.

I have so many ideas for Christmas decor this year! The hubs and I put up our outdoor lights and wreath this afternoon and I plan on getting the tree up this week.
Above are some of my favorite Christmas inspiration pictures! They all vary- but they are all so beautiful!


Happy Thanksgiving...

P90X...what am I thinking?!

>> Monday, November 8, 2010

So today starts day 1 of my 90 day P90X journey. I am so terrified and excited all at the same time. I have a few friends who have done 1-3 rounds of P90X and look AMAZING! I really was working hard before I got sick this summer and lost 14lbs. My motivation really declined while sick and I have gained 9 of the 14 back. I really need something to keep me motivated and working hard!

Our contract on our gym membership expired, so we decided to conserve some of that money and do an at home exercise together. Plus this will give us something to do during the short evenings of winter rather than just watch tv and snack :)

I will let you know how it goes!!


Friday Fashions...

>> Friday, November 5, 2010

So, I believe last week I did not do a post and I didn't snap a pic this morning either of my outfit.

I did however purchase some new jewelry and highlighted my hair by myself and wanted to post some pictures.
On to jewelry: I have wanted a skeleton key necklace for quite some time and I found one at TJMAXX the other day on clearance for $2.00! It's gold ( I do not wear much gold) but I love it, it's perfect for fall. Well I was just flabbergasted when I went into Target the other day and noticed a pair of earrings that would match it perfectly in their clearance bin for $.50!
Now to hair: I LOVE my hairdresser....did I mention that I love her?! She listens to exactly what I want and gives me her honest opinion. She colors my hair beautifully and I always feel fantastic after visiting her. However, with the horrible economy and crappy real estate market I do not have $85 to spend every 3 months on my hair.

Enter Sally beauty...I had 6 month roots going on and it wasn't pretty...I was desperate. They recommended Kaleidicolors Violet bleach and Loreal Volume 20 developer. I pulled my hair through the cap, heated it with my blow dryer and voila...beautiful blonde highlights. I was so happy and most of all it cost me less than $10 bucks!
My chin looks so weird...I think the neck of the sweater is making it look that way!

Have a great weekend!
