Linking up with Jen today over at Perfectly Imperfect for Insta+Lately! 
  • Advocare Tex-Mex Chili I made the other night... SO yummy! I've been eating the leftovers for lunch every day and it's STILL delicious! 
  • I started the 10 day Advocare herbal cleanse on Monday and it's gone REALLY well so far! :) It's hardest not drinking my coffee in the AM because I don't want to drink it without my sugar-free creamer. Oh, and not adding any fritos to that DELISH chili. ha! 
  • How my furbaby would prefer to spend her days/nights. No parks or playing for this baby. She just likes to LAY. Anywhere. My lap. Josh's lap. In a bundle of blankets on the couch. Her little crossed paws melt my heart.
  • JCP men's mailer! Pretty cool to see part of my work finally come to life in print! I wasn't responsible for choosing WHAT is featured in this book, only how/when it got to the necessary studio to be shot! 
  • PET PEEVE: This man took up a whole table during happy the bar.... for an HOUR waiting for his "family."  He didn't even order anything. Sorry. End rant. 
  • LOVE LOVE LOVING my combat boots :) I've worn them sooo much lately. Not regretting that $$ spent at all. 
This made me realize how much I need to get on my Instagram game! haha. Maybe better at just taking pictures in general! 

Happy Wednesday!

Weekend Shenanigans!

Excited to link-up with Sami for the first time!! BUT, my lack of pictures this weekend sucks :('s my weekend shenanigans in a nutshell anyway! :) 

Friday: Got off work at 4:30. Dropped my car off at the dealership for an oil change.... I COULD have waited the 35-40 minutes for it to be ready, but really... I had bigger/better fish to fry. I.E. Happy hour. :D Both of my aunts were in town, so we all got together at Amigos (if you live anywhere close to Dallas, you MUST visit... their raspberry frozen margs are the.bomb.) It was a great time as usual... I always have so much fun with my family! 

After a quick nap (oops), Josh and I went to our usual Friday hangout... good ol' Richardson Bar & Grill to meet up with all of our friends. 
2 of my fave ladies :)
Saturday: We drove to Reverchon Park (apparently it's pretty historically famous in the Big D). My sister's boyfriend was playing there, so Josh and I went to see him play!
they pray with the opposing team after their games! 
Then I picked up my car from the dealership... might I add that they told me they COULDN'T FIND it when I called to check on the status... "No ma'am, we have no record of your car being here"... UMMMM WHAT?! haha, anyway, they found it and I drove it BACK to amigos. ;) Obviously, i LOVEEE that place... we met my sister, her boyfriend, one of his teammates, and his teammate's dad there for a late lunch/early dinner. Seriously though.... if you're ever in Dallas, check it out. SO SO SO yummy.

I was supposed to go watch the girl UFC fight (ugh) with Josh and our friends, but I wasn't feeling well, so I called it an early night and watched "For a Good Time Call." Definitely a cute movie! :) I'm glad I waited till Redbox, and watched it for $1.29 instead of $10 @ the theater, but it was definitely a cute, light-hearted movie. 

Sunday:  (this is getting long, so I'm gonna do this in a nut shell...) 
  • spent $140 at the grocery store.... ummm, oops?
  • Flag football practice.... pulled my quad.... yep. It's ok today though. 
  • Margs (3, woops) @ Amigos... yes, again.
  • Dinner @ Josh's mom's house.. yummy stew! 
  • Fell asleep on the couch during the snoozefest that was the Oscars... might've been better if I had seen ANY of the movies... haha 
  • Went to bed before 11... Definitely makes for an easier Monday AM.
Happy Monday, Ya'll! :)

This is so hard for me... haha i LOVE the winter because it's perfect for snuggling and I own SO many more cute scarfs, coats, cold weather accessories, but i HATE being cold. haha
however, i also HATE being hot... and let's be real, swimsuits make me anxious. ha.... so i guess fall/spring. I like the in-between seasons.

U — unknown fact about me?
Hmmm, there's probably alot ya'll wouldn't know about me.... because i'm basically the worst. blogger. ever. haha 
But I guess a fact that you'd probably never even find out about me is that I had heart surgery in 9th grade. I had WPW which caused my heart to beat 4 times as fast as it should've... I could've just taken medicine FOREVVVVER, but I would've had to stop playing sports, and that wasn't happening. The surgery worked though, and all is well!
