These boots were made for walkin’…

Happy Monday Y’all!!
I have been DYNG to share this outfit with all of you.
If you follow me on Instagram you probably already saw the sneak peek that I posted yesterday!
I wore this outfit to one of my best friends 30th birthday outings on Saturday,
& I’m totally in love with everything about it.

Okay, let’s get down to business…
I scored this cropped sweater years ago but I linked a bunch of SUPER cute cropped
sweater options for y’all below! This fitted skirt is from ShopPinkBlush, and it’s
unbelievably soft and stretchy! Every item I’ve received from PinkBlush has seriously been so comfy!
The majority of my maternity clothing is from there, and I HIGHLY recommend ordering
from them if you haven’t already. They carry non maternity as well!

Anddddd, last but not least…THESE BOOTS THOUGH.
I received SO many messages when I posted these on Insta stories!
They are hands down the best OTK boots I have ever purchased,
and I can absolutely promise you that you WILL NOT regret ordering yourself a pair.
I wore them all night long and they do not fall whatsoever, and they are super comfortable.
My feet have been killing me since being pregnant and I am honestly SO shocked
to say that my feet felt great on Saturday night.
These boots were like totally/seriously/100% made for walkin’ y’all!

Kyle’s cousin Krissa is one of my very best friends and she turns 30 this week!!
She’s going to be out of town this coming weekend so a bunch of us girls planned
a fun little girls night out for her to celebrate!
It was the first time I’ve actually been “out out” since being pregnant, and oh what an experience it was! haha. Can’t even begin to tell y’all the funny stares and judgmental looks that came my way.
At the end of the night I was standing outside waiting for Kyle to pick me up and
I even caught this girl taking a picture of me!! I noticed her and the group she was with pointing at us, I guess they’ve never seen a pregnant person out past 10pm before? *rolls eyes*
So awkward.
My sweet {and feisty} soon to be sister in law saw the girl do it and ran over and put her in her place.
Needless to say, this mama to be was a tad out of her element, and slightly uncomfortable.
BUT we had such a fun night and I would do it 100x over again for my babe Krissa!
Birthday girl and me are pictured below.

Is Thanksgiving next week already?!
I cannot believe it…time to start preparing and also get some Christmas shopping done!

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!

Celebrating Sis

Last Friday we celebrated my sisters 30th birthday!
{a little early}
She rented out a private room at Pinots Palette
and it was way more fun than I was anticipating.
These places are byob so of course I brought bae…

We got there expecting there to be no food and there was a massive tray of chick fil a nuggets
as well as these beauties…

Therefore we were very well nourished for the class.

We painted a sunset, which yes, sounds simple..but you are all so very wrong.
Please go grab a paint brush and attempt to paint a swinging hammock & then get back to me.
God was really looking out for me in this photo, shout out to Jesus for the perfect lighting.

Once the class was over we googled the closest bar to us 

and ended up at a strange little place called Blue Lagoon.

We walked in and it was like everything including the music just stopped.

This was definitely a bar full of regulars and we were SO out of place.

BUT we ended up staying, I mean it was karaoke night so how could we not?!

Blue Lagoon definitely left us with sore abs and some interesting memories.

Happy early birthday sis! 

A Birthday For The Books – Part II

Some of you may not know this, but I am a HUGE animal lover.
My main loves are golden retrievers, giraffes & dolphins.
and when I say “main loves” I mean severely obsessed,
and will usually start crying when I lay eyes on either of these…
Any type of baby animal will also cause me to start crying instantly.
But anyways, that’s not what this post is about.

This post is about my birthday and how it was the best day ever.
Shall we begin…?

I had seen a friend of mine go to this drive through safari a couple weeks before and I KNEW

that that was exactly where I wanted to spend my birthday.

So of course, Kyle being the charmer that he is, took off work and made it happen. 

It’s called Franklin Drive Thru Safari and it’s near College Station.

and I HIGHLY suggest you go.

We get there and of course the first thing I want to do is go see and feed the giraffes,

If you follow me on snapchat you basically spent the entire day with us lol


So, here are a few pictures from one of my favorite birthdays of all time…

I had the biggest and goofiest grin on my face the ENTIRE day.

After feeding the giraffes we drove around the safari and there were SO many different animals.

The zebras were so dang cute and the donkeys would sprint behind your car the entire time.

and of course there were emus/ostriches that I mostly took videos of…

those things are my worst nightmare…like they absolutely terrify me.

The kangaroos were SO cute and sweet! 

If I stuck my hand near the cage they would run over and just give me tons of kisses.

Kyle and I walked around for a bit before deciding to head back.

These pictures and my quick explanation of the day totally don’t do it justice.

It was one of the best and most fun days i’ve had in a REALLY long time.

We grabbed some food and headed home then decided to head to the gun range for a little bit.

And of course we ended this fantastic day with some netflix and chill.

(Game of thrones is our current obsession)

Thanksssss for stopping by!

A Birthday For The Books – Part 1

This post is WAY late — 

but I guess that’s what happens when you’re trying to adult and also have 5 other hobbies.

My official birthday was May 16th but I decided to celebrate the weekend before
since it fell on a Monday!
And well, I ended up celebrating a TAD too hard and was home and passed out before midnight.
That’s what the birthday girl is supposed to do though right?
Get ridiculously drunk, have a great time and embarrass herself?
Because if so, I totally nailed it.

As most of you know, I’m the picture queen.

However, after 5 shots in a row, pictures were the last thing on my mind…

Let’s just say that this was one of the greatest nights that i’ll never remember.

Here’s to 27.

xoxo, Monica Lee

{come back tomorrow to see what I did on my actual birthday}

you REALLY don’t wanna miss it.
