I know this picture of my car isn't what you were looking for...but that's what you get when I'm rushing to get a few decent pictures.

This outfit was worn Monday when I realized that I really am obsessed with colored jeans.  I blame all those people who gave away their sweet, colored jeans to the thrift store.  

I also love mixing patterns, if you can't tell.  

Ok, that's all for now.

Oh and YES I'm absolutely bummed that I'm not going to be at TxSC, but I got a sweet gal to take my ticket and I know I'll have another shot at going next year.  Oh well, tis' life.

Fair Warning

I'm just giving fair warning here, but this blog post is filled with awkward poses. 

Favorite awkward face ever.

So you gotta give me a break.  It's been almost two weeks since I've taken pictures of myself and I was reminded of how truly odd it is to take pictures of yourself, especially when you're in fairly populated places.  I think it actually shows in some of these pictures.  I'm just more uncomfortable than usual.  Truth is, I'd much rather not have to take my own pictures, especially since husband, sister and sister in law have often spoiled me by taking good pictures of my outfits, however my husband is the only one close by and we don't normally get to see each other in daylight during the week.

Anyhow, I'm disappointed to say that I will not be attending Texas Style Council due to a work commitment that came up.  I'm super bummed, but my focus right now is school and work so my hobby can't take priority over the two.  I'm sure I'll regret it, but it just wasn't the right time.

On my way to school last week I saw a sign that said "Thrift Shop" in a shopping center that I pass by every day and immediately got giddy at the thought of yet ANOTHER thrift store in my area.  So I checked it out on Tuesday and while the place was definitely newly opened and still slightly unorganized, I scored a couple of great items.  They actually had quite a few vintage dresses that I seriously had to tell myself that I could not buy because I've accumulated so many that I don't wear.  I think eventually I'll sell them once I take my Etsy shop seriously, but for now. I don't really have the time.  

Anyhow, just trying my best to keep my head above water.  Thankfully, I have an unending source of help and a great support system.  Two more months and I'll be done with this madness! 

Also, I cannot wait to see Gungor tonight.  It will, no doubt, be amazing.
