HOW IN THE WORLD IS SUMMER coming to an and??? I feel like it was just the beginning and somehow tomorrow is the first of September.
I cant complain.. September is my favorite month of the year. for many reasons. First and foremost, its the month that Jared and I got married. The weather outside reminds me of our wedding. Other than our anniversary, I love September because its the time of year when football begins and the start of Fall, my absolute favorite season.
I have been terrible about taking pictures lately.. seems that the only ones I snap are on my phone. I will get better. I have been doing "home study" for the last few weeks. For those of you that don't know, this is where I study up on my drug, learn about the company, take tests, etc etc. I have been sitting in my office all day, everyday in my pjs or gym clothes and it has made me thankful for the everyday part of my job when I interact with all kinds of people. In my office, I get lonely and find myself not washing my hair as frequently as normal :) I am looking forward to going back to LA in a week because I get to visit the home office and the campus. I have heard it is really an outstanding place. Also, Jess and mom are flying out there for the weekend to spend a couple days with me. The three of us in LA for the weekend... will definitely be fun! I cant wait!
Off to bed! I hope that everyone is having a great week!!!

Lazy Days of Summer





The title of this post explains why I haven't been updating lately... Other than giving my all to my new job.. I have been lazy!
I did want to brag on my fabulous husband for a sec... he (and his team) received an award today at Bud Walton called the "John A. White Award" for the work they did with Tears For Life. They showed a video on them and then presented the award in front of all the upcoming freshman. I was so proud of that boy!! Good job Jared... you continue to amaze me. Here is the video: video
Here are a couple pics from our cookout this evening. We had a wonderful time with family and friends! I will post more pics when I upload the ones off my camera :)
Have a fabulous week!!!!

Happy late bday to my fabulous sister, Jess. Her 29th was August 2 and we celebrated with a lovely dinner at Pesto, then went for drinks afterwards at Theos and LIT. It was a great night. Happy bday Jess, I love you!


This past week I have been off work I guess you call it... I dont start my new job until next Monday. Anyway, I had a fabulous week and got a lot done around here. My biggest accomplishment was painting the laundry room. I will post pics sometime so you can see the pretty color. I think it turned out great! Other than that, I worked out everyday, ran a zillion errands, hung out with hubby and that's about it. The week fleeeeew by as I am sure this next one will too.


This past weekend we played in the DRJII tennis tourney! It was so much fun and soooooo hot! Molly and I played our little hearts out but lost to Amanda and Abby 6-4/6-2. We still had a blast! It was at least 888 degrees and we had been out a tad too late the night before.. an interesting combo on the tennis court. :) I hope to not do that again anytime in the near future!Our pro, Zach, came to watch and afterwards he just said "How late did you two stay out last night?" Ha!! Anna, Effie and Drew came up to play and we had so much fun with them. Anna was able to pick out BM dresses on Friday at She Said Yes and they are gorgeous. As the matron of honor :), I am wearing yellow with the other MOHs and the other 9 are wearing green. Such pretty colors! I also got my dress for Steph's wedding while we were there. It is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! It is long, black, and one shoulder. Gorgeous, right? Such an exciting time!


I am truly exhausted and have 66 loads of laundry to do, so I better get started. I am off work all this week too! YAY!

Boyfriend Jeans




How to Wear Boyfriend Jeans
Boyfriend jeans are meant to be rolled up at the bottom so that the cuff sits just above the ankle.

Because this style is meant to sit low on the hips, it works on both curvy and straight bodies. If you are petite or have a short waist, even out proportions by cuffing jeans with a smaller roll.

Consider what you are going to pair with your boyfriend jeans. In order to maintain a look that is both casual and feminine, it’s best to stick with slim-fitting tops and girly footwear.

If you choose to pair your boyfriend jeans with masculine pieces such as a button-down cotton flannel, be sure to show off your feminine features by cinching your waist with a belt, slipping into a bold pair of shoes, and accessorizing with chunky bracelets.

On cooler days try pairing your cuffed boyfriend jeans with a pair of patterned socks or stockings.

If you do decide to wear a pair of men’s jeans, make sure they fit! Find a pair that fit you through the waist and hips, and do opt for a straight leg. Men’s bootcut and flared denim don’t work quite as well for this cuffed denim trend. But there’s no need to cross-dress or borrow your honey’s denim.

I got fabulous bf jeans today and I found this article and thought I would share with all of you. I like this trend!

Happy Weekend!
