Coming To An End

Thanksgiving break has almost come to an end. I can't believe how this year has flown by already! With Christmas decorations going up today it's bound to feel warm and cozy! ( I'll put pictures of my room all Christmas-y later). Here was the break down of my weekend + Wednesday.

Wednesday: 1 AND A HALF YEARS! I can't believe I have been with Jeffrey that long. I guess time flies when your having fun right? Well I couldn't ask for a better boyfriend and best friend in the whole entire world. He is so patient and I admire that. We definitely balance each other out and I believe we are perfect for each other:) I wanted to do something special for him so I went to Michael's and picked up some leather bands and well kind of went a little craft crazy, but that will be for another post! All I did was take a dark brown strip of leather and attach a snap to the end and for a little added decoration, I put a little diamond stud right by the end of the bracelet. He loved it!

Thursday: I went to my Grandmas to eat the big turkey dinner, and then Jeff and I made our way over to his house for his Thanksgiving dinner. After we went out to the desert with Jake and Kylie and had a bon fire. Which, looking at our past fires we have had there, was perfect! The cold weather was finally here, so QT hot chocolate came in perfectly (along with some candy shhh..).

Friday: BLACK FRIDAY SHOPPING! I have never been much of a black Friday shopper only because of the crowds of people that tend to annoy me. But I will admit, black Friday is like a shoppers paradise. Loads of sales to sort through is worth it when you end up finding a jewel. Here is what I purchased.

Cowboy boots: Last Chance - $39.99

Louis Vuitton clutch: Name Brand - $5.00

jeweled clutch: Name Brand - $7.50

peacock feather earrings: Name Brand - $4.99

leopard heart studs: Name Brand - $4.99

Love ring: Name Brand - $4.99

jeweled stud: BP Nordstroms - $5.00

bird stud: BP Nordstroms - $10.00

"Jesus" bracelet: Metro Park - 2 for $10.00 (I bought Jeff a metal version of this one)

Then, exhausted by shopping, we went back to his house to watch my favorite show, Criminal Minds. Yes I'm obsessed. For dinner we grabbed Sushi and RA and Jeff left to head up north with Matt to meet Chris at his cabin. I went and caught up with Jenna and Brittney while they were in town and had a blast. Good memories with those two!♥

Saturday: I went to ballet and grabbed my Starbucks after like usual. I have been obsessed with coffee and hot tea lately. Something about drinking it in the winter is so comforting. Then my Mom and I went to see Ballet Etudes The Nutcracker. It was so good! My little cousin played a doll and she was so cute! It really made me miss performing and even pointe! (did I just say that?!..) I went to church then after Jeff, Chris, and Matt got home Rea and I met up with them and all went to The Summer Set concert. It was really good! I have just been getting obsessed with them recently and really wanted to go, then found out they were coming to AZ. Just my luck! I even bought a really cute baseball tee shirt too!

I have been slacking on posting my Examiner posts, but I still have been posting! So if you are interested in reading them then Mesa Shopping Examiner should get you there. But I will try to start linking them to my blog again.

Thanksgiving 2010 has almost come to an end so as my farewell, here is a list of 10 things I am thankful for.

1. My family. They support me with everything I do and I know I can always count on them to be there for me.

2. My amazing boyfriend Jeff. He is incredible and I don't think I could describe the feelings I have for him in one short post, but he makes me feel wanted and important. I know he loves me and I couldn't imagine my life without him.

3. My amazing friends. I love every single one of you. I know I can count on you and although friends come and go, my true friends have always stuck with me.

4. Millie. I love Millie to death and going home to a little puppy that is so over joyed to see you is probably one of the best feelings in the world. I never take it for granted.

5. My job. I have the best job in the whole world. I am so thankful that I have the opportunity to do something I love and get paid for it.

6. God. I am grateful for everything he has done in my life and I know he has a plan out there that is perfect.

7. My Mac. That might sound weird but with out it I would probably fail school and wouldn't be doing this right now.

8. College. I am so happy that I am going to college let alone on a scholarship. I know I will be a better and smarter person after I am all done.

9. My car. I don't know what I would do without it. Getting to school, work, and everywhere else would be impossible. Thanks Mom and Dad :)

10. And overall, I am thankful for a roof on my head and food on the table.

Blessed Beyond Belief

Saturday morning my amazing boyfriend Jeff surprised me by stopping by my house to drop off this.

The day before I had seen a lace from his baseball glove that was sitting on his desk. I thought that it would make a really cute bracelet but I didn't know to to attach the two ends. So Jeff, being the nice guy that he is said he would think about how to make one. And then the next day he had made it. He sewed both ends together with two different colors of thread and personalized it by writing on the front :) I loveeeee it. Little things like this mean more to me than anything else. I love you Jeffrey Daniel.♥

Catching Up

So I haven't been blogging as much as I normally do because I have been swamped with presentations/homework and I still have to go to a honors lecture tonight and write a two page paper that is due tomorrow! Woo! Well enough whining from me. Here are some recent pictures from over the weekend that I have yet to put up and my new hair color.

Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man
has many; not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.

Weekend? Where?

This weekend went by wayyyy to fast. Now back to the daily grind until Thursday that is. Although the weekend went by quickly, It was so much fun. I am blessed to have amazing friends, the best boyfriend in the entire world, and the best family ever. Today was a fun (much needed) shopping day. I picked up a "few" things and I'm so excited to wear all of it. Some items I picked up were some flow-y shirts, a long sleeve flannel, jeggings, and a cream leather jacket. I also came across a blog that I absolutely love. She goes to a thrift store and buys an ugly dress for $1 365 days of the year therefore spending $365 a year and then makes it into something adorable. Hmm all the money I would save.. Well I hope everyone had an amazing weekend like mine and I'm counting down the days till Thursday at approximately 11:45:)

Just A little Indie

So lately I've been totally into indie/bohemian fashion. Long wavy hair, billowy shirts, elaborate fabrics, earthy colors and stones like turquoise. Stacking bracelets on your wrists and wearing multiple rings are an easy way to get the indie feeling. I have also been really into keeping my natural nails healthy. I used to get acrylic nails put on all the time but I have found that keeping your own nails nice and being able to paint them however you want really saves money and is fun (for me who gets bored all the with my nail color). Here is an amazing website that I am completely obsessed with. I literally love everything on here. It is called and here are a few of my obsessions.

1. long sleeve chiffon - $42.99
2. striped shirt - $32.99
3. floral cardi - $42.99
4. rocker boot - $99.99
5. wedge - $39.99
6. snake ring - $11.99

Getting my hair done tomorrow:) So excited. Lets just say I get bored with my hair color easilyyy haha

watch your actions before they become your habits,
watch your habits before they become your character,
and watch your character for it becomes your destiny.

Love What You Do

Last Thursday I started my new job, and I absolutely love it. Friday will be my official first week of working and I feel so lucky to be actually doing what I love. I love kids, I love dancing, and now I can do both! :) Yes, it is definitely a challenge working with little kids, especially with all different ages all mixed together but it is so worth it in the end when you know you brightened someones day. I hope everyone has been having an amazing week. 1 more day till the weekend♥
