Poppies and Fringe and Something New

One of my favorite shirts in my closet is this red, poppy-covered blouse with cap sleeves.  It's old-fashioned and soft, the cream on the top balances out the deep red.  I have worn it many ways, but I'm a bad blogger so I don't have pictures of it.  It's flexible and easily mixed, making it a go-to piece and I think it combines a lot of my favorite fashion ideas.  Although, I don't really know how to formulate my fashion ideas because, honestly I don't think about them too much.

**I also don't always know how to use commas correctly if we're being honest**

The light is grainy... cloudy day light

Top: Forever 21
Skirt: Thrifted
Necklace and Belt: Gifted
I'm a lover of this door

I paired it with another favorite, a teal pencil skirt.  The belt is from Allison and I don't wear it too often because belts aren't really the hubby's favorite thing.

Not like he is against belts... 
or really for belts... 
I just went through a "I must belt everything phase"

Seeing pictures make me realize that I need a haircut, which I will hopefully get soon.  I'll be able to afford it soon.  

Do you wanna know why?


Because I got the job!!!

A Salary


Celebrations will happen when the hubs and I catch up on the monetary hit from me being jobless for a while.

Anyways,  this girl has a lot to smile about.  
April is shaping up to be a great month.

Let's hear it for just getting better and better.

A Wednesday for Health

I am a lover of carbs.



So delicious

What do you go to when you want a delicious, fantastic meal?

Carbohydrates... every time...  at least most times.

I'm trying to cut out a whole lot of that from my diet.

It's going ok, but I'm not really a strict rules type of person.  So I decided to allow myself pasta and bread sometimes, but to really think about it and stay away from it most days.

One day last week the hubs and I wanted to have a nice dinner so I picked up some fresh pasta from Trader Joe's (I had never really been in one).

I had also never had fresh pasta.  I am in love with it.  It was fast and easy, cheap (especially when you compare it to getting pasta at a restaurant), and it tasted so good.

In the evening the light comes into the kitchen beautifully

I don't really think that my eating habits will ever be unbelievably healthy, but I'm trying.  I get fresh produce whenever I can afford it (I hate the fact that the cheap foods are the worst for you--it's not surprising that our country is getting more and more unhealthy).  I am also trying to teach myself some self control.  I'm a bad person when it comes to trying to cut back.

I'm just going to take it meal by meal.

Happy Wednesday

I really love primary colors

to wear especially, not really to decorate with

Point Loma Nazarene University tank tops are really stylish...

I put this picture on for the shadow/muscle effect

Wrinkles much?
Sometimes that love of primary colors turn into something a bit patriotic.

Not like I'm not patriotic, but I felt a little silly in this

It was great for a sunny, super casual day

I think that I may be closing in on a great full-time job


don't tell

I'm trying to not get my hopes up

(they are up though)

I love April

April Days

I remember April as a time of wiggling in my school seat thinking of summer when I was little.

It still has a LET'S GET UP AND DO SOMETHING feel about it.

April begs to be enjoyed with it's warmer temperatures and the sounds and sights of Spring arriving.

It's refreshing.

The hubs and I just got internet set up at our apartment so it's been kind of difficult to pull ourselves away from catching up on our favorite shows (30 Rock and 30 Rock and more 30 Rock)

I am also enjoying rediscovering the blogworld.

Jillian from Three for the Road is a favorite (in the real world as well)

Her whole family is ridiculously adorable

she is having an unbelievable giveaway

INCLUDING CANDY (it's just a minor part but also the best part)

It's a Birthday Party Giveaway

You have to check it out.

Who doesn't love to celebrate?

I will celebrate almost anything.

I will and I do

Birthday months and all.

Did I mention the candy?

Needless to say... I'm winning

(that's not a Charlie Sheen reference)

Boyish Ease

I feel like it is now officially summer here.


and it's still just April (the wee beginning of it) and it was in the 90s yesterday.


How much do I love San Diego?

You don't even know.

With such a free schedule (like I have at the moment) it makes me never
really want to get 'ready' to go anywhere.
So, I have been throwing up the simplest, most comfy things on lately.

Excuse my scaly hand

With my unruly hair and it's short length I think I may just be begging for more of the "Are you a boy or a girl?" question which I have been getting already from the elementary school kids I work with some times.

It's still so tempting.

I need a haircut.

If anyone still in cold weather wants some glorious sun time come on over to San Diego.

It's gorgeous here.
