Gray Matters.

The past few times that I actually stepped foot into the mall, I ended up buying gray colored items. I don't know what it is, but I really loving it. Its the summer and I should really be pulling out all the brights right now, but when its gray with ruffles, how can I resist?

We went to a friend's graduation from law school, to a local eatery, and finally a local bar. I was a bit dressy for the bar, but I didn't want to be under-dressed for the graduation.

Please excuse the face in the picture, as I was trying to tell the hubs how to take the picture. And even though it didn't turn out the way I wanted, I wasn't going to ask him to take another because he was like "what is this for? why do you need this picture?" So I just stopped there. For those of you who take pictures out in public, do you ever feel weird about it?

I am so glad it is Friday! Hopefully the weather is better this weekend. Enjoy your weekend ladies!

3 Months

Some days it is difficult, some days it is easy, but everyday it is lovely. Happy 3 months anniversary!

Lately I've lost my tongue
Today you found my song
Unknown our love, has grown
And I thank god you came along
You are the one one
I've been waiting for today
And here comes the sun
It's been baiting 'morn today.

Hit by a bus.

That is what I felt like yesterday. Monday evening I couldn't even eat when we went to a friend's BBQ. Well, I take that back, I couldn't eat the BBQ, but I made sure I ate dessert. Because no matter how sick you feel, you always can have dessert. Anyway, later that night I started getting cold chills and my back was bothering me like no other. I still don't know what happened, but my boss sent me home early yesterday so that I could rest. I really wanted to upload some pictures from the weekend, but decided to completely knock out at 3 in the afternoon on a workday. Wow, that felt really nice.

I was going to make a doctor's appointment just in case because I don't want to be sick on my trip next week. But since today I feel almost normal, I am going to hold off for a bit. This is where I will be in exactly one week. Just looking at these pictures makes me feel better.

Playa del Carmen, here we come!

Smooth me Away

Being a girl takes alot. I usually don't mind the upkeep (haircuts, eybrows, nails), but I hate shaving my legs. Its not that I cut myself all the time, but it does happen occasionally. I was skeptical to try Smooth Away at first, but thought "what the heck its only $10?"

I think it recommends that you use the product after a shower, but I wanted to try it out ASAP. For me, it worked great. You move the pad around a few times clockwise and then counter clockwise in the same area and then, voila, the hair is gone. I don't know if it will work on coarse hair, but it worked with my fine hair. It does seem to removed any dead skin cells as well which in turn looks like you just did a nice scrub on your legs. My legs did feel a little weird afterwards, but felt great after I put on some lotion. I think it is key to keep your legs mosturized after using Smooth Away.

I did this on Saturday and by Tuesday my legs were a little prickly (a little TMI, but I had to mention it). It doesn't have the lasting power of waxing, but is less painful than waxing.

What method do you use for hair removal? Have you ever purchased "As Seen on TV" items? If so, were you impressed?

This past weekend was hubs big 3-0 birthday and while we had great plans to go bowling and get real competitive with shuffleboard, it never happened. We started the day with his choice of breakfast: Migas for him and french toast for me. He then spent 6 hours in the Texas heat playing golf with a few buds. When he got home he crashed out for a few hours and decided lets just go to the bar since it was kinda late for bowling. There goes that old and boring theme again huh? Here is what I wore:

Tank and Bracelet: Forever 21, Leggings: Target, Necklace: Ebay, Shoes: Aldo

Cut me out.

I have a long commute home from work everyday, it allows for lots of thinking. Sometimes I drive myself crazy thinking. What I've realized lately is that I have been talking to my friends less and less. I'm not sure what the real reason is yet, but most of the "friends" that were in my life faded out because we just didn't have much in common anymore. Our lives led us down different paths. I rather text than talk on the phone because sometimes I struggle to find something to talk about and it gets to that awkward silence. Am I becoming antisocial? Am I a bad friend? I much rather be at home with family and my husband on a Friday night than going out to the bar. Is this just me getting old and boring? Please tell me I am not the only one out there like this?

Anyway, I was browsing and found this gorgeous dress that Natalie Portman wore to the White House Correspondents Dinner. She is always so well put together and clasically beautiful.

This dress is a cutting it a little close (I think I actually see a little pink), but I love cut outs. Here are a few fabulous cutout items that I am loving.

Teach Me

First off, let me say that I finally got my camera back from Best Buy. I bought my camera a few years ago and purchased their protection plan. Apparently the automatic focus motor has gone out and the guy at Geek Squad says its no big deal and it can easily be fixed. If you don't know, all of Best Buy's protection plans go through Geek Squad. Well the tech tells me it should be about 2-3 weeks to get the camera fixed.

No big deal because I don't need it for anything and just need it fixed. Well 3 weeks rolls by and I don't hear anything from them. I call to get an update and all they can tell me is the service center received my camera and are working on it. Another 2 weeks roll by and they don't have any new status. At this point I am livid that they claim they don't have a number to call the service center and that they only deal with emails. Seriously, who does business like that? Long story short, I get my camera back after about 2 months after dealing with the worse customer service ever.

Now that my rant is over, I can get to the clothes. I've noticed that pretty much all my pictures are from work outfits and the one I am about to post is another work outfit. I guess I never think about it when I am getting ready to head out on the weekends. Hopefully I can remember this weekend!

Shirt: Forever 21
Skirt: H&M
Necklace: Forever 21

I feel like this outfit makes me look like a teacher? Either way, I love this white button down. A nicely fit white button down is a "must have" for everyone's closet. It can be dressed down with a pair of jeans (a la Jen Aniston) or dressed up like the above.

I always have the hardest time finding button down shirts that fit me correctly and that do no "pop open" in the chest area. Most of my shirts I have to use clothing tape to make sure it stays closed, but with the above shirt I don't have to.

Where do you find your best button down shirts?
