It's okay. again.

It's okay Thursday.

It's okay that this girl called my boss and complained that I was "pushy & rude",
because she's a liar & took her anger out on me & the truth will always come out.
(ugh, people are awful)

It's okay that my skin is disgustingggg right now,
because I'm trying out a new product & apparently it's getting
"all of the bad stuff out" before it gets better.
fingers crossed?

It's okay that I spend way more time & energy on my boutique than anything else.
Because that thing is my baby, and it's going to groowww into something amazing.
I just know it. :]

It's okay that Kyle can't afford to buy me a fluffy baby pomeranian right now.
Because he PROMISED that he will someday, and he did mention the word "soon"
Thank God. 

It's okay that today is my weekend & I still woke up at 7AM.
Just kidding. that's not okay.

It's okay that I wanted to take new outfit pictures for my boutique
 in all my new spring arrivals but a cold front just came through.
Real models deal with crazy weather all the time, right?
 Lord help me.

Hooray for Thursday,
The weekend is allllmmmoost here!

Ate 4 boxes of thin mints, not feeling thin at all.

Woah...
it's Wednesday already?!
This week is flyyyingggg by!

I'm sitting here in my granny panties, 
and NBA oversized tshirt eating a box of thin mint cookies,
looking as publicly unacceptable as possible.
Oh, and a pretty little green face mask, to help unclog those pores of mine.
It's moments like this when I am so proud of myself for keeping a boyfriend this long.



that's all for today.

Happiest moment of my life.

This weekend was so great.
Why?
I GOT TO FEED A GIRAFFE.
We got up close and personal & became best friends immediately.

Seriously though, we loved each other.



Obviously I was so excited that I didn't know what to do with my hands.
It happens.


I'm one of those people that is weirdly obsessed with animals.
Like I freak out anytime I see a baby animal, & might even cry a little.
Therefore the zoo is a place where I tend to 
make all kinds of weird squeals & embarrass Kyle,
He deals with me pretty well though.

Not only did I get to see fun animals all day,
I got to eat a huge ice cream cone while I was doing it.
I was one happy girl. 

Here are some more pictures!!
my bff.

I wanted to take all of them home!!


just hang in' out

this one was SUCH a good model, I need him.

heyyyyy...we match!!


Divas...like mother like daughter.

Happy Monday,
I have a feeling I'm going to be having some narcoleptic seizures today.

Y'all are going to be so proud of me.
I know I haven't blogged in 2 days...
BUT
I've done bootcamp TWICE this week!!
Hollaaa.
The first one was kind of chill,
don't get me wrong I could barely move my arms the next day.
But it wasn't very intense or anything.
So I wasn't too scared going into the 2nd one...
Holy crap I was wrong.
It was intenseeee from the get go.
And I may or may not have had a half asthma attack
so embarrassing.
Yes I have asthma, and it's not bad unless I do things like I was doing.
Thank God, I walked away and got water & pulled myself together before I made a scene.
Needless to say, my body is dying, and I love everything about it.
I've been doing a lot better about working out,
but I still need to improve on my daily snack of doritos & oreos after dinner
When I say "improve" I mean, stop completely.
I NEVER ate that stuff when I lived alone,
but now that it's in the house all the time it's soooo harddddd!
But hey it'll help me work on self control, right?
Besides I need my butt to look like this by March.
Dream big, right?

(I typed all of this & then sat on the couch & ate ice cream)
dont judge me.

Ice Skating in Houston?!
It happened.



On Saturday my sister asked me if Kyle & I had any plans for the night. 
We didn't, so I asked her what she had in mind.
Apparently they had built an outdoor ice skating rink downtown,
So of course we took up the opportunity.
Kyle was hesitant at first...
Obviously ice skating isn't exactly the #1 thing a guy wants to do on a Saturday night.
But of course he gave in because I wanted to go. 
:] he's such a good boy.

We got there & it was PACKED.
Which made it way more entertaining.
Nothing beats watching Houstonians ice skate.
I felt like I was at a mental hospital and everyone was drunk.
It was great.



We had so much fun!
And surprisingly none of us fell, 
There were some prettyyyyy close calls though.
Afterwards we went to a restaurant nearby for some food & drinks.
Double Dates are great.
<3

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

Picnics and Etsy Shops

Nothing makes me happier than picnics with my man.

Our picnics are a little different than your average picnic.

Ours usually involve a living room or bedroom floor
instead of a blanket in the park.
And they often always involve wine. 
And usually a large pizza.
and cheesy bread of course. 

This is me.
You will always find me with a large smile on my face
when I have pizza in one hand & wine in the other.

Unfortunately I couldn't get a picture of my picnic date
because he decided to act like a child.
You know how men get...
anytime you want to take a picture you get the..
"uuugggggghhhhhhhh"
Well instead of just groaning & getting it over with,
Kyle decided to just make a hideous face every time I snapped a picture.
Great job babe, you won.

So anyways, after our picnic we plopped in his bed
to watch "The Walking Dead"
We're finally at Season 3!!!
It's getting soooo good!

Now onto a separate subject...

ATTENTION ALL MOMS, AUNTS, MOTHER IN LAWS ECT...

One of my great friends has just opened an Etsy Shop!
Meet Anna & her beautiful little peanut Avery.

As a new mommy Anna was inspired to make all babies look fabulous.

Duh, who doesn't want their babies looking adorable?!
her shop is brand spankin' new so she doesn't have much available now,
but she's been working hard and her store is growing every day.
I am lovinggg this adorable little headband!

Feel free to follow her on:
&

Show her some love!!! 
<3

Have a great Thursday y'all!

Monday's are never fun...
until the bachelor comes on of course!
Who's y'alls favorite this season??
I'm loving Desiree and Lesley M, I think they are the cutest things!
andddd I want both of their perfect abs. ugh.
I have not been doing my whole "get in shape, eat better" for the cruise.
like at all.
I feel like I'm always telling y'all how worthless I am at taking care of myself.
haha
I promise I'm not that gross!
I jump on the floor and do my pushups and get some squats in
every now and then.
Usually after I eat a bowl of ice cream because it takes part of the guilt away.
I did something bad the other day...
I bought a swimsuit...
that's not all...
It was $100.
I know, I know...
I'll probably hafta return it
 because I'm poor and I have buyers remorse.
whatever I couldn't help it.
Everyone needs a little retail therapy now and then..
which leads me into my next sentence...
 which is forcing all of you lovely people to
go to my store & buy something!
Hooraaayyy for great bloggy friends!!
No, but really...go buy something.
You wont regret it ;] 

I've got some new arrivals that I think a few of you mayyyy just love.

ya win some ya lose some.

It never fails, every time we get in Kyle's elevator 
I make him take a mirror picture.
and it is ALWAYS blurry.
Oh well, ya win some ya lose some. 

Me and Kyle did something totally great on Friday.
We went to the movies. 
I know, I know...we're officially an old boring couple. 
It happens.
We are also disgusting. 
When it comes to our diet that is....
We went to Red Robin [yumm] before the movie.
And got Spinach artichoke dip & cheese sticks.
That's all, plus drinks of course.
Talk about a meal full of vitamins & minerals?
I was stuffedddd...because I wasn't that hungry in the first place.

So then we get to the movie,
[The Gangster Squad]
Which was a GREAT movie, by the way!
and Kyle tells me he needs to go to the restroom,
and then he comes back with this...

and I wonder why my pants are getting tighter & tighter...
like I said, ya win some ya lose some.

Y'all hafta go see that movie though!
It was so so good.
and I am even more in love with Ryan Gosling, if that's even possible.
mmmm he's perfect.
<3

After the movie we went back to Kyle's apartment,
and watched the Walking Dead of course...
I am SO into that show right now.
Anyone else obsessed with the walking dead?!
It's soooo addicitng!

Anywhoo...
I hope everyone has a great week! 
I'm going to attempt to work out more than once this week...
and maybe even go to a bootcamp...MAYBE.
go me!

Fridays Letters and Cute leggings.



Loving these leggings with leather detailing that just came in!
You can buy them here >> ClosetEssentials

They are kind of hard to see in this picture, 
but they are SUPER cute. 

Fridays letters.

Dear appetite, I need you to settle down a little bit.
I'm going on a cruise and I really don't want to be that "skinny fat" girl.
Dear Coffee, I'm sorry for abandoning you for months, I dont know what I was thinking.
I am so glad you are back in my life. I'll love you forever. <3
Dear Hip, why are you always hurting me when I try to jog or even walk fast?
You are making working out much more difficult & I would appreciate if you would stop acting like you're 75 years old. 
Dear Bootcamp, I know Jennifer begs me to go to you every week, & I promise I will. I'm just nervous and need to find my inhaler. Lord help me.
Dear God, thank you for blessing me continuously even though I don't deserve it. 
The End.

Have a great weekend Ladies! 
<3
