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!


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™‚


Do you have a Little Black Dress?
