Rainy Monday off work!

Well hello there! Hope everyone had a great weekend! I have this rainy Monday off due to the fact that I'm working this Saturday. Have already managed to wash some dishes and do a few loads of laundry. As soon as the last load finishes drying, I'm off to spend the day with my mom. :)

Friday night after work, I went out with a few close friends. Here is what I wore:

Orange-ish button up shirt: Marshalls
Cream undershirt: Forever 21
Brown tank (under the cream one): Nordstrom BP
Jeans: Miss Me
Sandals: Loveculture (a store that's kinda like Forever21)
Belt: Loveculture

and an even closer up photo of the detail of the orange-ish shirt

Saturday, Kev and I watched some TV then headed out to lunch. After lunch we went to a few different model homes to get some decorating ideas (one of me favorite things to do!). Then we headed to IKEA and picked up a few things:

This sits in the corner next to our TV...the bottom two shelves are driving me crazy as they do not yet have anything on them yet :/

and this mirror which I LOVE! It is not yet hanging up as I have not 100% decided which wall I want to put it on and I think we are gonna do some painting first before hanging it.

After the IKEA trip, we got a start on some dinner. I started cooking some noodles while Kev headed to the grocery store to grab a few items. Along with the food items, he brought me back this:

So sweet! And sunflowers are my favorite! <3

After dinner, a few of our guy friends came over and we headed to TGI Fridays for some appetizers and drinks. It was a fun night hanging with some of my favorite boys! Drank a little too much though, as Sunday morning I had quite a little headache. Fell asleep watching some football and then once I woke up the headache was gone! After the 49ers game was over, Kev and I went to dinner at a yummy Italian place and then to Home Goods to get some more stuff for the house. The things we got were Christmas season decorations so no pics of those until I put them out after Thanksgiving!

Anyhooo...the dryer buzzer just went off, so I am gonna go fold some laundry then head to my mom's house! Have a great Monday!

Fall outfit and pretty flowers

Just a quick picture post (haven't had a post with pictures in awhile!) to show you the first official fall outfit I wore this year...was worn this past Friday night to a friend's BBQ:

Hot pink sweater: Forever 21
Black under tank: Target
Jeans: Hudson (purchased on sale at Macy's about 2 years ago)
Boots: Uggs
Necklace: Forever 21

I apologize for the picture quality as it was taken on my phone...I have not yet mastered how to take good self portraits of my whole body to show an

And the flowers Kevin picked out to use as a centerpiece for our dining table for our housewarming party this past Sunday:


Now I am back to being bundled up under the blankets! My house is colllldddd! I don't wanna mess with the heating/AC settings just yet though as it is supposed to be nice and warm again this weekend. Ta ta!

Cozy fall weather

Well it has been cool and rainy today...I believe fall has really come and summer is gone. I have mixed emotions about this as I LOVE summer weather, yet I am excited for some of my new fall clothes I got over the weekend and of course, the holiday season that is just around the corner!

This weekend I did some shopping with my mom and sister and got a lot of great stuff at Forever 21. I cannot stress enough how much I love that store, as the clothes are both stylish and cheap! Yesterday, we had some family and close friends over for a housewarming party. We had a great time and got some great gifts for our new home. :)

Now I am just snuggled on the couch in a sweatshirt doing laundry and watching HGTV! It is quite relaxing, but would be so much better if Kevin was here snuggling with me instead of at work.

This coming weekend should be the first one in quite awhile where we literally have NO plans! I love having plans and being busy, but it is nice to have a little break from that every once in awhile.

Alright, I haven't checked out pinterest yet today, so the addict in me is urging me to stop blogging and start pinning!
