So I think my lipstick is crooked on that one side...oh well! How do you like the french bulldogs on my shirt?? Little cuties, huh? I love these pants except the "crotch" (I hate that word) area wrinkles so fast after sitting down in them for a while! I usually don't buy linen anything for that reason. Ugh. But I'm obsessed with a good bell bottom. Anytime I see pants like this, especially with the sailor inspiration with the buttons, I swoon. And I am reminded of Rachel Zoe instantly. You can also find this outfit posted on my INSTAGRAM here. Until next time!

Yup, that's right, I am finally updating my blog! Wow! I hope you are currently enjoying my recent outfit of choice, which was what I wore on Valentines Day (to work, not actually out on a date with Joey)! Ya, totally meant to post this last month but somewhere between raising a toddler & working (now two jobs, one not paying-yet) I am totally neglecting my blog! And I feel bad because I don't want to not post. I wish I could post three times a week but sometimes, that just isn't possible! Oh yeah, and I have been busy working on my fitness which has taken up a lot more time than I had thought! I hope that my readers can notice the obvious change in my body! I can't even believe how many inches I have lost so far! Once I am done with my first 90 days, I will be posting about that. I know that losing weight and body image is a HUGE topic up for discussion. It seems to be one of those things that people don't necessarily get tired of reading about. Actually, I think women are constantly trying to find inspiration to maintain a healthy weight or get to a healthy weight.
I hope you like that last picture I posted. Can you say windy? Jeez. Although, Joey did happen to snap a few good ones with me looking like a total "Betty" with my hair perfectly blowing in the wind...ha ha! Right? I feel like someone is eventually going to ask me this question, which is, "Are you really that white? Or is it some filter?" ...Yes, I am really THAT white! And proud of it! I have always had super, super white skin and it is sad that only "older" women compliment me on it. I really wish that younger people realized how beautiful "pale" skin is. I am officially so white that even the lightest foundation/powder is too dark for me! Yippee! Which means that my face now looks "orange" in person. Oh well!! And I couldn't find my pink lipstick so my red just had to do. And, what about my awesome "back drop" for this photo shoot today? Ugh, I know! Ha ha, my skin does not contrast well against it! We are almost the same color! Sometimes it is just easier to snap some photos right outside as opposed to hoppin' in the car & driving around town (unless I am already going somewhere, which isn't likely). Hope y'all enjoy! Until next time!
P.S. I also wanted to mention that over at Matches.com you can enter to win a $14,000 (approximately) shopping spree!! You can enter HERE!!
