Friday Fashion Show

Happy Friday!!!!

***I edited the post and hopefully you can see the pics now! ***

That last one is pretty true for me! I can’t remember the last time I actually did something on a Friday night that didn’t involve a couch and my pajamas! Trust me though, I’m not complaining.

On a semi related note, if you couldn’t tell I’m not a fashionista by ANY means. However I recently acquired a few new fall clothing items that I wanted to share with you all.

From my fairy godmother:

(sorry the coloring kinda stinks)

I particularly love the last one because I don’t have anything else that’s this color! I always see blondes wearing yellow and I love how it looks but I never think to buy it when I’m shopping. 75% of my clothes are blue or black. I love having some new colors to model! ๐Ÿ™‚

And this one I picked out myself at Marshall’s this past weekend for $30!

\

My first pleather jacket! Yup I’m a badass now. I immediately fell in love with this jacket and when I saw the price it sealed the deal! I am going for the Emma from Once Upon A Time look.

We could be twins right?!?! lol jk

Ok on to the food!

Last night I had a few minutes in between running and volleyball so I opened the fridge to assemble something and look what I found?!

Got to love bonus chicken! I think this was actually from last week? IDK but it passed the smell test. So I quickly opened the freezer and pulled out all our veggies for a stir fry.

  • Frozen spinach
  • frozen bell pepper blend from Trader Joe’s
  • frozen mixed veggies from Shaw’s (carrots, corn, peas, green beans, and lima beans)

I also found this baby hiding behind the frozen tenderloins and vodka pizza.

I microwaved the rice while the veggies and chicken were warming up on the stove and then about 7 minutes later, dinner was served!

I’m telling you, it doesn’t get much easier. And if I had to slap a price tag on it, it probably cost $3.50 to make and it fed about 4. (2 1/2 if one of them is Nolan) The leftovers are actually today’s lunch.

Alright everyone, hope your Friday is quick and painless so we can head onto the weekend. I actually have a few fun things going on again this weekend including a wedding and a concert! Unfortunately the Pats have a bye week so idk what we will do with ourselves Sunday!

Question:

What are your weekend plans?

My First Little Black Dress

Good morning and happy First day of June! This year is FLYING by!

Luckily I am less itchy this morning and I’m very excited because my first bridal shower is this morning! For the occasion I needed a new dress. ๐Ÿ™‚ Dresses are a bit tricky for me because I always feel so disproportionate. I am 5’2 and I have a short torso, short legs and a small bust, but I am also no size zero.

Dresses tend to fall wrong on me or so I always think)ย  and make me look either like a midget, or a figure-less box.It was especially difficult today because the current “style” are those maxi dresses that are 8 feet long. Seriously who can wear these things?! I look like I’m playing dress up in mommy’s closet in them.

I headed to Kohl’s and found two things I simply could not live without! (Please excuse the pictures. These are post shower with un-brushed hair and no make-up)

Dress # 1

This dress immediately caught my eye. Its cute, its comfy and I feel like I just stepped out ofย  50’s movie! Look at that tool ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s hard to tell but the dress is blue and dark brown. I just love the the polka dots ๐Ÿ™‚

Dress #2

This dress is something I have been searching for! Until now, I have never had a “Little Black Dress.” When I saw this baby on the rack I fell in love!

With the exception of my wedding dress, I have never felt so “pretty” in a dress.

You can’t tell in the picture but it has some ruching in the front. I can’t wait to find an excuse to show this baby off!

The best part of this dress hunt? Kohl’s was having a 55% off all dresses sale!!!!! THEN I got an additional 15% off because I used my Kohl’s charge card.ย  Each dress was originally $70 but with my discounts I payed about $50 for them BOTH!ย  Man I love a good bargain.

Happy Friday ๐Ÿ™‚
