Forever 21

Today was my second day off in a row, well kind of... I had to stop by work for about an hour, and then I was free for the rest of the day. After work, I visited my brother at his work, which is a delicious Italian restaurant, then I decided to go to the mall. After going in every store, I found a great dress at Gap, but couldn't justify spending $80 on one piece of clothing, there was a cute dress on the sale rack, but I am looking forward to shopping in California with my cousins. My last stop was Forever 21 where I found a dress, two belts, and a necklace for under $45! The belts were not online, but the other two were, and I will have to admit, seeing the dress online, makes me wonder why I bought it, but I LOVE IT!!! What are your thoughts about Maxi Dresses??

Memorial Day

I love this picture of my mom! I think she looks so pretty, and she still has this apron :)

What a great day to be off of work, its Sunny and beautiful out today! I talked to my grandma and she invited us over for dinner, which reminded me of all the old pictures that I had of my family on my computer from an assignment that I had last semester, and I wanted to share them with everyone.

Bo smelling the flowers 
Summer unofficially starts this weekend with Memorial Day Weekend, while we remember those who have served for our country, we will be BBQ'ing and relaxing. This week my Uncle Michael bought me some flowers and planted them in a large pot that he had laying around his yard for my birthday. There were a few flowers that were left over so I bought a couple bright yellow pots at Target which were on sale for $2 each! I couldn't be happier how they have brightened up our little courtyard. Beyond, the bright new flowers, I have been loving color everywhere, yellow to be more specific! 
Thank you Carlos! I love my new shoes, they go with everything!!

An adorable dress great for summer parties.
BoBo actually posed for the camera, something he never does...

Have a great weekend!

Birthday Weekend & Relaxation

My birthday was great, I was surprised with many things at home from Carlos, my parents bought me a Bern helmet, and my brother and sister-in-law bought me a mason jar soap dispenser, that is now in my kitchen. Yesterday my dad and I had a BBQ to celebrate our birthday where we were able to hang out and relax with friends and family, overall a great birthday this year! 
This afternoon when I was reading some of my favorite blogs, A Beautiful Mess posted a handful of new posts since the last time read. Elsie and Emma are inspiring in every way! Check out their trip to Hawaii, their newest Sister Style, and my favorite is that Elsie is featured on this months issue of Momentum magazine! I can't wait to buy the issue. 
I hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

Thanks Mom & Dad!

REI here I come!

Happy Birthday Dad...

...and happy birthday to me!! Yes, my dad and I have the same birthday! My family all went out to eat where we all had a great night, we are all able to relax and forget about the stressors of our day and enjoy each other's company. 
Carlos surprised me this morning with a cake and a card before work! He has such a huge heart, I couldn't be luckier! And I before I forget my grandparents, brother & sister-in-law, and parents all made dinner wonderful! Thank you for everything, I love you all!

Happy Birthday Dad!

Summer Time

Boy oh boy! It sure does feel great to relax and not worry about school right now, and have I mentioned that I LOVE SUMMER! It is my favorite time of year, and I couldn't be happier right now. So far this summer, I had my family over for breakfast on Mother's Day which was lovely. Then on Wednesday I will be celebrating my 24th birthday! Other than that I wanted to share an early birthday present I got today... what do you think of my new phone case?

Happy Summer!

*my iphone case by Vans was purchased at Industrial Rideshop
