It's about time...

...for my vacation that is!! 

Tomorrow morning, my family and boyfriend are leaving for our week-long cruise that stops in the Bahamas, St. Maarten, and St. Thomas. We couldn't be more excited. And to make things even better, the day we get back to Florida, my boyfriend is moving into his house. There is so much to look forward to in the next few weeks and so much to be thankful for. 

I will certainly miss my bloggy friends but until Saturday, August 6th, I'm on a boat!

Okay this song has been in my head all week so I couldn't help myself ;)

Target Tuesday

I have never linked up for Target Tuesday which doesn't make any sense because I am OBSESSED with Target. Go link up!

I am going to feature things for the home simply because my boyfriend will have his house the day we get back from our cruise vacation on August 6th. On Wednesday, we are going paint shopping. Yikes! We are going to be very busy in the next few weeks.

Pretty bowl

Bar set

Black and yellow...boyfriend's favorite

It's so hard to find things that are masculine that I like!

Happy Tuesday friends :)

Friday's Fancies

Sorry I have been M.I.A. lately...been busy! I have been working the last three nights and if I haven't been at work, I have been running errands nonstop.

But I have off from work today finally so I had time to participate in Friday's Fancies.

I love today's theme because it's perfect for summer...every girl needs a little white dress.
1. Ring

Have a wonderful weekend friends!

Hello Sunshine!

It is a beautifully hot day in Florida and why am I happy? Because it doesn't look like a hurricane is going to attack me at any minute! So I am going to take advantage of this wonderful day and get my tan on. 

Have a lovely Tuesday friends!

Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters 

Go link up with the lovely Carissa!

one. For those of you who don't know, I had a little accident with my laptop and I still have not gotten it fixed. I think I am just going to wait until I get back from my cruise because I can't afford to pay for it right now. Until then, I will be borrowing my parent's laptop or desktop computers.

two. Since I last blogged, my life has been very eventful! I went with Rusty to the doctor last Friday because he was having a weird pressure in his chest. Fortunately, the doctor said that he was going to be okay as long as he relaxed and took it easy on the energy drinks. Poor thing fell asleep as soon as we got back to my house and later that day took a FIVE hour nap.
I was a creep and took this pic while he was snoozing.
I couldn't help myself because he just looks so peaceful lol.

three. I went shopping recently to TJ Maxx and realized it is extremely hard to go shopping in a place that has so many wonderful things. From shoes to sunglasses to decor to was extremely hard for me to be responsible. BUT I was good and just got myself a new purse (which I needed) and two gardening tools that were on sale for my boyfriend. I only spent 37 dollars. Go me!

four. This past Friday, my best friend Hannah introduced me to the wonderful world of thrift store shopping. I have been keeping my eye out for things for my boyfriend's new pad and this was the perfect way to get cute things at an amazing price.

Halfway through our thrift store spree, Hannah and I got sidetracked and stopped at a puppy store. OMG. Bad idea. Puppies are just so freaking cute and it's so hard to not want to rescue all of them and take them home. I fell in love with a chubby little Shih Tzu puppy.

I eventually had to put him back even though I didn't want to :(

We finished our little adventure going from thrift store to thrift store and on the way home we encountered a super bad Florida thunder storm! Sooo scary. The roads were covered with water and it was a very dangerous drive home. We took the following pic while pulled into a gas station on the way home.

five. I am beyond ready for my vacation. We are leaving in a little less than two weeks. It's almost here!
Happy Monday!

Okay so yesterday afternoon, I was carrying my laptop to my mother's bedroom and out of nowhere (I still don't know how this happened) I dropped my laptop and it hit the hardwood floor HARD. So needless to say, my screen cracked and now I just have a quarter of the screen that works and the rest is a bunch of pixel cracks and sadness. So until I get a replacement monitor for my poor little laptop, I probably won't be able to blog as much as I used to. I hate this :( I will have Rusty shop online for me tonight so that I can hopefully get it fixed by the end of the week.

Have a great week lovelies!

Friday's Fancies

Thank God it's Friday. I have been working so hard at work lately and today I have the whole day off :) I couldn't be happier. Today I have a nail appointment with my best friend Hannah and then I am going shopping and to see a movie with Rusty. Should be an amazing day!

I made another outfit for Friday's Fancies and you can participate here. It is so much fun to do so go get creative!

Have a lovely weekend!

Black and Yellow, Black and Yellow...

Okay when I am not working my butt off at the restaurant like the past two nights (UGH)...I am looking for things for my boyfriend's future home which he is still in the process of buying. Just to warn y'all, short sales are NOT short by any means!

Rusty's favorite colors are black and yellow so I found some pics that can serve as inspiration :)

Okay I found some pretty wedding ideas too but this does not mean that I plan on getting married anytime soon!

Have a lovely Thursday. Tomorrow is already Friday!

My Fourth of July

So the plans to go to Rusty's cousin's house wen't down the drain because at the last minute, Rusty decided he didn't wan't to go. So we just came to my house and relaxed. It was a very enjoyable Fourth of July for us.

Yes that is a strawberry margarita you see...YUM

P.S. Today marks another 6 months for Rusty and I :) Only 6 more months and it will be 2 years for us!

Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

one. Happy Fourth of July! I hope y'all spend quality time with friends and family today celebrating our Independence Day :)

Rusty and I will be spending time with his family today at his cousin's housewarming party. Bring on the delicious grilled food!

two. I was all decked out in baking attire the other day when I baked my "wittle" owls (they are just so darn cute!) and apple pie.

three. I have become a gamer. I never thought this day would come. My boyfriend purchased an x-box 360 game system with a Kinnect (like a Wii) the other day and we have been playing games nonstop. I bought a CSI game and it's so addicting!

Bought this but haven't gotten my lazy butt to play it yet...

four. The Casey Anthony Trial comes to an end today. I pray that the jury makes the right decision and gives a fair sentence to Casey after these long weeks of testimony.

Have a wonderful Fourth of July friends!
