The important question is at the end.

Oh heeeeeeeyy!

Kyle and I were supposed to have a date night last night.
but we were both feeling a little under the weather,
So I ate everything in my pantry & refrigerator instead.

and watched Duck Dynasty, and took pictures of my brothers.

This is what real best friends look like.

Do any of y'all watch the show "The Following"?
I'm obsessed with it.
I'm a few episodes behind though so I don't know what's going on.
I've always been a fan of scary shows/movies except they literally ruin my life.
I'm the most paranoid person you will ever meet.
But that's okay.
That's why I'm getting my CHL & will carry a gun everywhere,
even in the shower, because I'm THAT paranoid.
Kyle & I are having our date night on Friday instead 
& we're going to watch "The following" after our date!

I hope all of you are having a fabulous week!
Are any of you technology savvy and know how to build really cute websites?
I really want to create a new website for my boutique w/ my own domain.
I wan't something pretty & user friendly & I'm on a budget.
haha let me know dolls!

random post award goes to me today.


Life Made.

So my life became a million times happier yesterday.
I've been SO sad because I didn't think
 I was going to be able to go to the rodeo this year.
I LOVE the rodeo, my dad actually used to be a bull rider! 
Sometimes I can't even believe that haha

But anyways, I finally broke down & bought Kyle & I tickets
to go see Blake Shelton, I can't really afford it but WHATEVER.
I needed some Blake Shelton in my life.
and thennnnnn one of our "couple friends"
said they had extra tickets and invited us to go see Alan Jackson!
Free rodeo tickets?! Hollaaa.

And thennnnn....
One of our good family friends said that he had extra tickets
to Luke Bryan *drools* AND Kenny Chesney!
Life Made.
I seriously can't wait to come up with cute rodeo outfits!
I already know that I'll definitely be wearing this dress to one of the shows!

You can buy this dress at my store!
I loved it so much I had to keep one for myself.
Can you blame me?!

Besides, I need to make sure I'm looking fabulous for my boys.
I can't even explain how excited I am!! 

In other news...
Kyle's 24th birthday is coming up!!!!!!
Geez we're getting old.
I need gift ideasssssss!!!

be there ;]


Just doing a quick outfit post with my cat.

I took an ENTIRE week off of blogging.
Forgive me.

I dont think I've ever done that before?
Even though I took the week off, I still thought about y'all!
And it felt straight up WEIRD not blogging.

Just doing a quick outfit post with my cat.

I had a pretty fun weekend.
On Friday night me and a few of my favorite boys went to the horse races!
And I had a few too many beers, which I definitely deserved after a long week!

Unfortunately, none of us had much luck betting that night,
but we are going gambling next weekend, so hopefully our luck will change by then!!
Fingers crossed.

These guys are seriously MY FAVORITES.
The hairy one you see above is the most hilarious person you will ever meet.
He NEVER fails to bring a huge smile to my face.
He actually got Kyle the job he's at now and the work side by side!
Which means I hear them bicker nonstop.
They love each other though.

The other guy is Patric! 
Him and Kyle grew up together and we've been besties since the day we met!

Back to the horse races...
Y'all there was a dessert buffet...
I almost died. 
I can't believe I didn't take a picture of it!
They had an ice cream bar w/ any & every topping you could ever imagine,
all kinds off pies, brownies, and cookies!
I decided to take it down a notch on the desserts since I was already
goin' pretty hard on my beer belly.
I settled with cookies & cream.

Horse races are fun, that was a first for me & I would definitely go back!

Oh and did I mention that Kyle & his dad
saw a woman BENT over...not squatting,
but bent over peeing on a tree in the middle of downtown yesterday.
Yes, her butt and lady parts were facing the street where everyone could see
everything the good Lord gave her.
Thank God, I want't there to witness that.
Well on that note, HAPPY MONDAY!
I know it's not everyones favorite day,
but you could be losing your mind & peeing on trees outside.



Shopping, Shooting, and Shameful Eating.

Shopping for clothes all day long for my boutique is fun & all...
but sometimes I gotta do a little retail therapy for myself.
With that being said...
Sometimes I REALLY wish I would've named my store 
"retail therapy"
Is it too late to change it? Is that a cool name? I probably shouldn't change it huh?
Ugh too many decisions.
ANYWAYS...back to what I was talking about.

I've been obsessing over swimsuits lately.
maybe because I feel like if I keep purchasing swimsuits it'll give me 
motivation to work out?
Well I've bought 2 already and they weren't the cheapest things in the world.
and well...let's just say I did my first work out of the month yesterday
& decided that pizza and girl scout cookies would be a good post work out meal.
Oh well, I'll get motivated one way or another.
Here are the ones I purchased!

This top & bottom are from theorchidboutique.com

And I just ordered this one!
I'm obsessed with the color!!

I feel like I'm going to be making a trip to the mall this weekend.
Ohhhh the fun I'm going to have <3 <3

For those of you that are needing a little retail therapy of your own.
Here are some new arrivals over at my store!!

This crochet top is seriously to DIE for. 
So pretty.

Striped hi-lo zipper blouse!

Polka Dot Zipper Blouse!

This dress is SO cute in person! 
The colors are so pretty.

Everyone needs a floral tunic in their closet.
but really though.

You'll never guess what my family is doing this weekend.
Getting our Concealed handgun licenses
yup, this girl is gonna be packin' heat!
I'm not thrilled because it's a 10 hour class on Saturday :(
Butttttt that's okay, cuz me & Kyle are having
 our valentines on Sunday so I'll have that to look forward too!

What's everyone doing for valentines day?!
Kyle and I never do anything too exciting, he's going to be out of town for work this year so 
I'll probably spend mine eating cinnamon rolls or something shameful in front of the TV.
Dont judge me.



Shades of Gray and a Pinch of Pink


Why are we being so great?
Because everyone deserves free things every once in a while,
that's why.
And because we're awesome. 

I dont know about you, But I am obsessed with Hunter boots!
Like if I had the money, I would definitely own a pair in every color.
And maybe even buy Kyle a pair in every color, and maybe some for my cats too.
Okay just kidding. but seriously though.

One of you gorgeous ladies are going to WIN a pair of Hunters!
Yes, WIN, which means they are FREE in whichever color your heart desires!
Are you dying of excitement or what?!

Now, how in the world do you win?!

  All you have to do is complete as many entries as possible to give yourself the highest chance of winning a pair of these beauts. And while you're at it, get to know the awesome group of bloggers that love Hunters just as much as they love being kind enough to give a pair away.

Why am I so fabulous?

It's 1 AM and I just got done packaging orders.
While I was packaging I told myself I wasn't even going to attempt to write a blog post.
But then I remembered my old blogging self, how I used to blog
yes, even on the weekends.
Like, what did I talk about?!
I miss being such a great blogger.

Since my life has been taken over by photo shoots for my boutique,
I figured I'd write a post about that...

Photo shoots are great.
[not really, they're exhausting and sweaty.]

Here are some of my favs...

Why am I so fabulous?

haha oh geez, this is what 98% of the pictures turn out like,
and I just hope and pray that at least 1 or 2 will come out looking decent.
Oh well, ya win some ya lose some!

I hope all of you have a fabulous Monday.
Make sure you stop by here this WEDNESDAY!
We've got a prettyyyyy awesome giveaway going on!


Fill me in on all the good stuff.

 It's Thursday!
That means it's almost the weekend,
Which is why I have a big smile on my face.

I can't get enough of these shirts!!!

Blouse: Monica's Closet Essentials
Jeans: Buckle
Boots: Cavender's Boot City

So I'm a little sad today.
Remember that whole "free cruise" I talked about?
Or did I tell y'all about that?
I can't remember...but anyways Kyle & I went to this stupid timeshare thing &
won a FREE cruise!....Or so we thought.
These people are sneaky...
adding $100 fees left and right
If we would've gone through with it, it would've cost us around $500.

With that being said, my work out motivation is now gone.
I'm not sure when I'll get it back, I have a feeling it's going to be a while.

But maybe not, because my man got us a trip to VEGAS!
Hollaaaaa! I've never been and I am so so so excited!
I dont know when we're going butttttt I dont care I'm still pumped. 

Who has been to Vegas and what are things that we just HAVE to do?!
fill me in on all the good stuff ;)


who's with me?

Whole outfit is from...
you guessed it!
This skirt is out of stock right now, 
but I'm getting more in next week!

Who watched the Bachelor last night?!
 Ugh, I'm pretty sure everyone can agree that Tierra is a nutcase.
Like seriously, her laugh just makes me cringe.
It was SO obvious that he was going to pick her though,
the crazy girl always lasts the longest!

I'm also a little addicted to Teen Mom 2.
dont judge me.
What is it with Reality TV that gets you so hooked?!
I should be in bed right now but I literally can't stop watching.
I already can't wait for my coffee tomorrow. 

I DO have some great news.
well it's great for me at least. 
I've been so busy shopping for my boutique lately that I 
haven't done any shopping for myself..
Soooo I had a frantic Target run yesterday because I was searching
for shipping bags because I'm way behind on orders..
and guess where I ended up?!
the clothes section. duh.
and I bought myself 2 new pairs of shorts for spring/summer!

I am SO ready for summer to get here. 
Who's with me?!

This weekend was full of girl time. 
Friday night me and 2 of my best girlfriends went out for dinner & drinks.
We have known each other for WAY too long, 
so the conversations are always interesting.
We ended up staying at the restaurant for like 3 1/2 hours!
My abs were definitely sore the next day from laughing so much. 

Jennifer, Liz, & Yours truly <3

Saturday was even better, 
they came over to my house and Jennifer brought Adalynn (her daughter)
Who just happens to be my bff, we actually got in a fight...
Because I was letting her use my chalkboard, & she broke every single piece of chalk,
So I kindly asked her to just use the broken ones instead of getting different ones. 
You would've thought I called her a slut & slapped her in the face
with the reaction I got. 
Haha Oh I LOVE that little girl.
Of course I had to apologize for yelling at her,
and then she told me she was never going to leave my house &
wanted to sleep with me every night. 
Needless to say, we're still bffs. 
This is her laying in my lap, & us showing off our singing skills.
 In the middle of a crowded restaurant. No shame. 


I also have a question for y'all.
I just can't seem to decide & I need my blogger fashionista friends help!!
Should I order these maxi's for my boutique?!?! 
They will be around $36.

What do ya think?
Take 'em or leave 'em?
