What I Wore

I am a little late on my WIW post and in fact I haven't been on blogger for a while.
Busy with work, family time and a little bit of crafting.
Once again, last week work was great!
Got to talk to new people and learned lots of new things!
How was your week last week?
One thing is for sure, you know it's hot in Arizona when your husband wants to go into one of the stores, only reason he wanted to go in.... the store was blasting cold air and it felt really good!!

Any plans for Labor Day weekend?
BBQ's, pool parties, relaxing,

This WIW post was very last minute and as you can see the pictures were taken as the sun was going down in a near by park. Some of the pictures are kind of cool because you can tell what was moving when the picture was being taken.

Laughed so hard today my abs were sore! 
Still laughing about it! (:
I'm gonna say it... I love my job!

I have been reading and loving the book for our book club!
"The Memory Keepers Daughter"
Keeping me on my toes!
Hopefully you are reading along and understand.

Like I said I was going to post a picture of the cute necklace I made!
So here it is...

On to the Wee Bit Wednesday part...

Book Club {The Giver}

Lets start something new today!
I know sometimes when you think of a book club you think of those silly ladies on movies who have nothing else to do but read a book all day.
Believe you me I do not have time on my hands like they do and I'm sure neither do you!
But lets try it!
Last week I read "The Giver" by Lowis Lowery.
It's one of those books that you read in Elementary School...
But it still is a GREAT book!
Sometimes I wonder why they haven't made a movie out of it.
{actually just looked it up and The Giver is coming out in 2013! Super cool and something to look forward to!}

"Jonas's world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear or pain. there are no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the community.
When Jonas turns twelve he is singled out to receive special training from The Giver. The Giver alone holds the memories of the true pain and pleasure of life. Now it's time for Jonas to receive the truth. There is no turning back."

"The Giver" has won many awards including 1994's Newbery Medol.

If you haven't read "The Giver" I really recommend it and it is an EASY READ!


This week I am reading "The Memory Keeper's Daughter" by Kim Edwards. I facebooked and asked all my friends if they had any recommendations, I got A LOT! But, they didn't have any of them at Borders (going out of business) and I just decided to go around and read the summaries and I was pretty interested in this one! So wish me luck and if you want to read along PLEASE |DO! As of Thursday night this book was $7.50 at Borders!  Don't worry I probably wont finish reading this book for a while... it's a little bit longer. 

Good luck! And let me know what you think of "The Giver" or "the Memory Keeper's Daughter".

What I Wore

Hello Weekend!
I love the weekend and I especially love 3 DAY WEEKENDS!
I'd say I had a pretty eventful week!
It was extremely positive and I had so many laughs!
I LOVE my new job!
It screams professionalism, happy people and a great work environment!
I really enjoy the people and just being there!
This week I have found a new love for books!
Yes, I have never been a book lover but this week I have become one.
I finished reading 'The Giver' (yes, it's a 6th grade reading level) and I really liked it!
As soon as I finished I wanted to go out and buy more books!
So the Borders down the street is closing and so I bought 2 books!
I'm very excited to read them!

How was your week?
Ready for the weekend?
Here is a super cute blouse that I picked up from Marshals last week! I love it!

 Shirt: Marshalls, Necklace&Skinnies: Macy's, Shoes: Kohls, Watch: Fossil, Glasses: 99 Cent Store

See this little guy? 
I MADE him! 
Isn't he so cute?! 
He will soon be arriving in my Etsy shop along with  some of his friends!
Have a great weekend!

Awkward & Awesome Week


  • Sitting in the Walmart parking lot letting my husband put eye drops in my REALLY red eye. I kept blinking and so the drops wouldn't go in till he 'lied' to me and said "Okay I'm not going to drop it yet" but he did and it worked! From then on I gave him permission to 'lie' to me about when he would put the eye drops in my eye!
  • So Many 'THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID" moments!
  • Brother landed in the DR!
  • Finishing my book
  • Creating a super cute cuddly Giraffe
  • Actually having all my outfits planned out the night before so I wasn't scrambling  around to find something to wear.  
  • 2 Date Nights this week!
  • AZ Humane Society Orientation on Saturday! So ready to help and visit those cute puppies!

  • Forgetting someones name at work and calling them the wrong thing! Oops! 
  • Walking around all day with my NASTY red eye, I swear I looked like someone from a scary movie with that thing!

What I Wore {Liberated Edition}

Hello my lovely friends!
Welcome back to WIW.
Love how fast the weeks are going by! It is so crazy!
So many good things have happened to me lately!
I'm loving life and feel so positive about many things going on right now!
This week has been good! I took another little vacation and then its back to work for me!
Don't you just love vacations?! I really do!
They give you some time to adjust and relax!
Let me just say so far it has been great!
I'm getting things done but still have lots more to do! (:
I'm really excited because I get to talk to my bro!
I have been missing him so much lately!
For those of you who don't know LDS Missionaries get to talk to their families 2 times a year (on the phone) Mothers Day and Christmas. This call is a little different because he gets to head down to the DR and has time between flights to call us!
So you could say I am excited! (:

Shirt: Target, Necklace & Belt: Down East,  Pants: Macy's, Shoes: TjMaxx Headband: ModaChicBoutique

I didn't want to do the jump picture but he insisted! I'm not even off the ground! (:

Welcome to the beginning of a new week! Don't you just love Sunday's?!
What do I do on Sunday's?!
Well, I wake up, do a little blogging, do some crafting, watch some movies with the hubs, go to church and visit Family!
It is such a lax day!
I have been really positive lately! And I love it!
I feel like some kind of weight has been lifted from my shoulders!
I'm lovin' it!
I've also been pinning and reading these awesome positive posters!
They truly help me with my day and help me be positive!
I hope these brighten your day!
Remember, you are never alone and someone is always willing/wanting to help!

What I Wore

This week has been a joke!
So many crazies that I have had to deal with thankfully the week is almost over!
I can't wait for a break! (:
Lets just say it has been a pony tail week!
Which means I'm too tired and lazy to 'do' my hair!
How is your week going?!
I hope really good!
I love hearing about everyone's weeks! It makes me happy!
Especially when you have a great week!

So for this outfit post I seriously didn't know what to wear! I was sitting in my closet for a good 10 minutes trying to figure it all out! I think it turned out pretty good! What do you think?! And I am wearing my glasses! I never wear them unless I am crafting or reading! I get dizzy when I walk with them on! And do you like my necklace?! The hubs got it for me for my b-day!!

{Oh my goodness, on a random note, did you hear about the lady who had her baby in the toilet?! Serious!
It was on yahoo the other day and I was so surprised! She said she didn't even know she was prego! Crazy!
I couldn't believe it till I watched the video! Sometimes I wonder!}
