Sulphur Springs

This is my second time this week flying with Austin and this time we took our good friend Chris with us on a short flight to Sulphur Springs.  Austin is an incredibly good pilot and I trust him with my life in general, so flying with him isn't nearly as scary as one might think.

Chris and I both spotted this heart shaped pond at the same time.  

If you look closely, you can see our shadow. 

We stopped at a cute diner for lunch called Red Barn Cafe.  

I promise I'm jumping back on the diet wagon tomorrow...well the healthier eating and exercise wagon anyhow, but I figured I'd have one more ridiculously stupid, fat, burger that had bacon AND ham on it.  Terrible, I know.

Austin and Chris snapped a few photos of me too.

All in all it was a pretty amazing day.  I got to go to church, take a quick trip and then come back home and relax for a bit.  Like I said yesterday, it's all about balance.  

So on that note, I'm going to go to chill with the husband and go to bed early...I know...I'm livin la vida loca!

Who's that Girl?!

It's ANI!

Yup, this is the first blog post I've made in a what feels like forever.  School and work have taken over my life and unfortunately, hobbies such as taking pictures of what you wear everyday take a backseat to being a responsible adult.  Tis sad, I know. 

But I've done my best to balance having a good time so that I don't burn out completely. In fact, I had two girls nights this weekend and both were so fun and I really did need them just to feel sane again.  So I'm just trying my best to balance it all.

So this outfit was a totally attempt at a look I saw on New Girl which is, like many other fashion bloggers, my new favorite show.  I mean what fashion nerd wouldn't love the show?! It's a perfect balance of cute outfits, awkward Zooey Deschanel humor and SCHMIDT. Haha. Anyhow the V-day episode this week inspired me. 

She's so adorable it makes me sick.

When I asked my husband if he liked my outfit, he nodded his head and then said, "How come you get to wear a brown belt with back shorts?"  And of course I said, "Because I wear what I want."  Truly, all I felt like wearing was a leotard, tights, shorts and my new brown belt. 

Anyhow, I've still be able to hit up my favorite thrift store at least once a week and as of late I've bought not one, not, not just three, but FIVE pairs of colored jeans and all of em fit me so well.  I'm thinking that people bought their colored jeans on a whim and then had no idea how to wear them and so they threw them out because they're all in amazing shape.  So I now own teal, coral, purple, red and pastel purple jeans.  I've already worn the coral jeans twice this week so get ready for it. 

Hope you are having a great weekend.  I truly hope I can make more time for this hobby.  We shall see!

Pink Roses

 Awkward smile anyone?  Don't mind if I do.

I'm keeping things so short tonight.  My day pretty much went as follows:


So I spent all day at school, except for when I took these pictures in the neighborhood right by campus. I'm so wiped out.  Loved all the pictures I took today though.  The lighting was just perfect.

Ok goodnight.
