Another day of pumpkins

Sunday was actually a pretty random day for us.
We had originally planned on going out on the boat - 
but ended up meeting up with some friends to watch football instead!
We went to Luke's Icehouse and watched the Saints game with 2 other couples.
The weather was absolutely gorgeous so we sat outside 
and got to enjoy the cool air while we watched the game!
After eating a ridiculous amount of fried foods we decided to change up the scenery!

We headed to a little place called Kung Fu and kept the party going.
After a few drinks the girls ended up convincing the boys to take us to 
[what we thought would be] a pumpkin patch farm,
Well - let's just say it definitely was NOT a pumpkin patch farm lol
But we still managed to snap a few cute pics with pumpkins!

Although there were a few mishaps - it was a great day.
Love these friends of ours!!

Pumpkin Painting Party

Guys, this weekend was so much fun!

After work Saturday Kyle and I headed to the Woodlands for a family night.

Kyle's cousin, Krissa, had the genius idea of a family pumpkin painting party.

We had such a fun night, and if you follow me on snapchat (Monicaleeee) 
I'm sure you got to see my masterpiece!
Unfortunately, I didn't get any photos of all of our finished pumpkins.
And by that, I mean I didn't take any pictures of our finished pumpkins -
because mine was absolutely terrible -- 
I had a goal, 
and that was to have a fuchsia leopard print pumpkin with some gold throughout...
Well, my pumpkin looked like it had a severe peanut allergy and was breaking out in hives so..
That's that.

But it was still a great night with the fam.

Sunday was also an unplanned day full of pumpkins. 
Stay tuned cuz i'm kind of obsessed with the outfit I wore -- mainly the shoes.
And I think some of you may need them.

Friday Favors

Dress: ShopMCE | Boots: LuLus | Necklace: Hemline

Howdy y'all!

So, I have a favor to ask of all of you, a prayer request if you will.

Kyle and I have been on the hunt for a new home for quite a while now.
I'm commuting almost 4 hours a day and not only is it taking a toll on the bank account, 
but also on my sanity. 
-- Long story short --
My sweet Mamaw has been living in an assisted living facility for a while now, 
and her house is just kind of sitting there empty.
My parents came up with a genius idea that Kyle & I could live in it, 
pay for the utilities, save up for a house of our own - 
but also work on my Mamaws house while we're living in it, ya know - fix it up a bit 
and just take care of it for her while she's not able to live in it. 

Well, My Mamaw isn't quite herself lately so she didn't take that too well,
and felt as if we were trying to take her house from her.
But in reality it would just be the perfect situation and help all of us out.
It's closer to my job, it would help us save money for a home of our own, 
and we would fix her house up and keep it safe while she's away. 

Today after work i'm going to go visit her and possibly talk to her about it,
so if y'all could say a little prayer for me!
Just pray that if it's Gods will that we move there for a little while that my Mamaw 
will have an open mind and trust that we will take care of her home for her & 
know that we aren't trying to take it away from her.

I know there's power in prayer so hopefully we will have an answer today!

Y'all are the best, thanks for reading this little blog of mine.
Happy Friday!!!

Hump Day thoughts.

Lately I find myself being stumped on what to write about,
of course I've always got my outfits to share - 
but I typically like my writing to be from me, something personal,
 and not just me describing why I chose my outfits and what I like about them.

So instead of blabbing about something random, I'll get into the real stuff.
So, here we go.

Random but real thoughts - from yours truly.

Being an adult is tough.
Bills are like REALLY annoying.
The market right now for buying a house, UGH - don't even get me started.
I've been feeling extra thankful for the health of my family & loved ones lately.
Sometimes I concern myself with how obsessed I am with my dog.
Making a baby is not as easy as your parents always told you when you were a teenager.
I'm sick & tired of Gods timing being so different than mine, 
but goodness I sure am learning & growing from it.
I think my caffeine addiction has randomly disappeared, like out of nowhere.
I got home at almost 8 last night and still cooked dinner for Kyle and I 
[that's huge for me]
I want like 10 new pairs of tennis shoes, but I don't really work out anymore so...
I can't decide what to be for Halloween, think Kyle & I may be Jack & Coke.

I said I wasn't going to blab and I totally blabbed, a lot.
but oh well, this little blog is mine, and I can blab if I want too.

How was everyones weekend?!
Mine was great - 
I worked saturday then got to grab a late lunch & catch up with my sweet girlfriend.

Sunday was spent with Kyle and Charley, catching up on Netflix & eating lots of take out.
We're currently watching Blacklist and it's SO good!

We are totally obsessed.

Another birthday celebration

After my day of rollerblading Saturday I had to head back home
and get ready for a surprise birthday dinner for the lil sis.

We all headed to a Mexican restaurant in the woodlands 
and sipped on some margs until she arrived.
Had a nice little dinner catching up with everyone and then decided to move the 
party to Baker St. Pub.

The party lasted until about midnight...
we're all gettin' pretty old. 
But hey, it was fun while it lasted.

Bringing an outfit post to y'all tomorrow, make sure you stop by!

Mummies and Rollerblading

Work has been a tad slow lately so I decided to take a "personal day" on Saturday.
The weather was perfect - therefore my girlfriend Maggie & I took full advantage.
I mean, What's better than a little champagne & rollerblading?

Before we went rollerblading we had a little picnic in the back of her car,
A few snacks - mostly champagne.
The Houston Museum of Natural Science had a Mummy exhibit going on that we decided to go to!
Now if i'm being honest, we were both a tad disappointed,
it was cool while it lasted, but unfortunately there just wasn't much to look at at the exhibit,
the mummies that we saw were very cool - I guess we were just hoping to see more!
After the exhibit we hopped on over back to the car for more snacks [champagne]
and that's when the party really started....

I really wish it wasn't such a pain for me to upload videos on to here because y'all...
We were SO embarrassing. 
I haven't laughed so hard in a REALLY long time, 
there was one point where I started to fall and grabbed her arm and took her down with me...
we both sat on the ground awkwardly silent laughing for a good 5 minutes 
and I may or may not have peed a little. 

After the blading it was time for lunch, so we headed to brown bag deli for a nice big sandwich!
and then frozen yogurt afterwards of course....

Weekends are totally my favorite.

Change, kind of

Tunic: ShopMCE | Leggings: similar | Wedges: similar

Guys, I love my job.
One of my favorite customers brought in her husband today 
and they told me they want to adopt me.
But really, I would consider letting them - such an adorable little couple.
The lady is probably mid 70's and she has legit rainbow about #goals.

Lately i've been all about changes. 
I usually hate change -- but currently i'm embracing the crap out of it.
Like - my blog is in the midst of a makeover, and i'm wanting my store to get one as well...
I kind of just want to change up everything in my life right now.
Anyone else go through these phases, or am I a maniac?
Kind of want to color my hair dark again...
Kind of want a sleeve of tattoos...
Kind of want to become vegan...
[LOL that'll never happen]
Kind of want to want to eat McDonalds for every meal...
Kind of want to start a new Netflix show...
Kind of want to watch Greys Anatomy every day for the rest of my life...
Ya feel me?

Well, I hope all of you enjoy your weekend!
I'll be working, per usual -- followed with some drinking -- per usual. 

Keep it real y'all. 

xoxo, Monica Lee

Top: Brandy Melville | Jean Jacket: JCrew | Jeans: CottonOn | Booties: ShopMCE
Choker: Forever21

Okay y'all I almost didn't share this outfit because the pictures don't do it justice.
I could not look normal this day in photos for some reason, but whatever.

I'm ALL about buns lately.
Probably because I hate washing my hair -- but thats beside the point.
Buns are totally trendy right now so even though I may be dirty -- at least I look on trend?

SO I wear these jeans pretty regularly,
would y'all buy them if I got some similar in my store!?
I'm trying to bring in more jeans/leggings so let me know what y'all would be interested in!
Happy Thursday y'all!

We've almost made it to the weekend!
xoxo, Monica Lee
