Twi Girl

Blazer: Thrifted, Tunic: Kohls, Leggings: NY&Co, Boots: Steve Madden, Necklace: Modcloth

I wore this little number last Friday night when I drug my husband to see Breaking Dawn Part 2. (He ended up really liking it) I convinced him to go to Sogo Fusion for dinner because I had such a delicious experience at lunch. The menu is awesome, a little bit of Thai, a little bit of Chinese, Hibachi, Sushi, all kinds of stuff. Yum.

DIY: Veggie Stamping

This DIY is super easy! But, when have I ever shown you a hard DIY? If it's too hard I don't finish it! I did not come up with this on my own - no way. I saw a post on natural stamping on Beautiful Mess ages and ages ago. The post I linked to is from August but I swear they have been celery stamping since they were babies.Well, little ole me just finally got around to doing it! I love love love how it turned out too.

Just cut the bottom part of the celery heart off. You've got to do this part fresh - if you cut this off and let it sit for a day...or a week...or gets a less pretty shape to it.

I had a plain, cheap, lightweight, cream colored scarf that I thought would look great with black stamping

Stamp away! The variations of light stamps verses dark stamps - perfect. A smudge? Perfect. Whatever goes.

Patterned Scarf Girl

Jacket: Forever 21, Top & Wedge Boots: Target, Leggings: Kmart, Scarf: DIY

Got a little creative with a plain cream scarf. I saw how to do stamping with veggies - um what else would you stamp with? - and I had to give it a try. This was done with a celery heart. I've got a post later that I'll show you how I did it.

Wine-y Girl

Velvet Jacket and Dress: Thrifted, Boots: Chelsea Crew

I know I said I would have Thanksgiving outfit photos but I stuffed myself so much that I didn't do anything. Anything. at. all. But I did love the outfit I wore so I will definitely be wearing it again. 
These photos are from last week but I really loved the way this outfit came together. The deep wine color in the jacket really brought out the colors in the dress. A wine colored lip finished out the look I was going for.

Happy Thanksgiving!

We snacked on some mini coffee cakes while the brownies and pecan pie were baking. Now we are heading over to my moms to feast. Hence why I am wearing leggings today. Outfit photos later!

Our glove turkey crafts. This is really easy. You just take an old glove and stuff it with polyfil or in our case, paper, and glue whatever you want to onto it. We used googly eyes too but we had those down in the craft bin. I found the idea on Craft Crow but I could never get clicked back to the original craft instructions. So we just "winged" it. Buahahahaha

Riley made his extra fat


Have a great Thanksgiving! And to quote my cousin, "Clink"!

Hello McFly Girl

Vest: Northface, Sweater: Modcloth, Tanks: NY&Co, Leggings: Kmart (hate em') Boots: Eddie Bauer

What's with the Life Preserver?

Anyhoo, bought these leggings at Kmart. I hate them. They are shiny. I just want denim like leggings. Not shiny leggings. Ugh.

Game Day Girl

The hospital the hubs works for had a vendor sponsored event at the Clemson vs. NC State game on Saturday. We decided to make the trek down even though Brian was sick with a nasty head cold. I still had some remnants of mine but I definitely was over the worst of it. But he suffered through! It was a beautiful day and I walked around in short sleeves most of the time until the sun went behind the stadium. Clemson beat the stuffing out of State so all in all it was a great day! I just wish my best little cousin would've been with me - I missed Emily!


A bit nerve wracking at this point in the game. 27 - 24

Some of the TD's and celebrating with a butt slap
