My 365 Photo A Day Project – Day 265 – CAbi chambray happiness

I’ve been searching for a fitted chambray shirt.  I have one but it’s not fitted and I feel it’s not as flattering to my shape as I’d like.  One of my friends wore a fitted one the other day and it was from CAbi from their Fall 2014 line.  It was exactly what I wanted.  Except it was $98.  I’m not about that so I searched to see if I could find it somewhere else and found out that they have an outlet mall in Allen, TX.  I called and found out that the shirt would be in today so I put that on my list of things to do!

The shirt was discounted to $68 and in the store today they offered a scratch off.  We scored an additional 50% off!  I was soooo excited!

I’m so excited to wear this!  Do you have a chambray shirt?  How do you style it?

Stay awesome y’all!!  ~lisa

High 5 Friday – 09.25.15

09.25.15

1.  I love seeing inspiration OOTD and travel outfit ideas.  One of my favorite youtuber’s is Ingrid Nilsen and she has a great packing video.  CLICK HERE to watch it.  In the video she packs a pair of flats that have a cat face on them and they are completely adorbs!  I’ve been hunting for a reasonably priced pair and came across this pair at Target.  They are a toddler’s size and although I do have a very small foot they aren’t big enough for me.  The hunt continues….

2.  Have you ever had garlic mash?  I have never had it so I googled several recipes and came to the conclusion that it’s basically just making mashed potatoes but substituting the cauliflower for the potatoes. 

We did make it but I added too much milk so it was a bit runny for my taste.  I will try it again soon though.  I mean I am trying to eat healthier and all.  haha!

3.  I’ve never gotten into the animal print trend but recently have felt drawn to it.  I started searching online for some great options but have come up short.  My problem is the ones I like are expensive and I prefer to be a lot more frugal in my purchases.  If you happen to come across a really cute pair let me know!

And while we are on the subject of animal print flats…what is the difference between leopard and cheetah?  I’m still struggling with that question. 

4.  Ellipsis.  If you have read my blog or follow me on any social media then you know that I love ellipsis and use them often.  Probably too much but I just can’t help myself.  When I write I think in my head and in my head I pause so I then use ellipsis.

This actually came up because a friend posted on facebook that one of her friends was overusing ellipsis.  Maybe it was me?  😉

5.  Ozona’s will be the site of my high school reunion.  I can’t believe it has been 30 years since I graduated from high school but it has and it will be fun to see old friends and reconnect. 

Stay awesome y’all!!! ~lisa

My 365 Photo A Day Project – Day 262 – The waiting game…

We had to pick up my folks from the airport tonight.  I don’t mind waiting because then you get to people watch.  Some things that I wonder as I wait….

Where they are going? 

Where they are coming from? 

Why did they wear that?

Did they have a good time?

Oh that’s a cute outfit, where did she get that from?

Why are they traveling?

They took all that as a carry on?

What things do you wonder about?

Stay awesome y’all! ~lisa

My 365 Photo A Day Project – Day 260 – No two persons ever read the same book. –Edmund Wilson

I’m a reader.  I have loved reading ever since I can remember and I love all different genre’s. 

The other day on Facebook I noticed one of my local bookstores, Paperbacks Plus, was offering a $5 coupon and I just couldn’t pass it up.

I headed to the store and browsed around for an hour….or two….and as you can see, I found several selections for my reading pleasure. 

What books are on your list to read? 

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa

My 365 Photo A Day Project – Day 259 – Blackjack fever…

We went to a casino night fundraiser and they had a 20’s theme to it.  I was thinking of doing a Coco Chanel LBD kind of vibe but at the last minute comfort won over winning a costume contest.  It just is what it is….

And surprisingly enough, I only took ONE picture the entire night!  Just one! 

21!

But it was a winning shot!  WooHoo!!

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa
