photo dump & friday's letters.

first of all.
I know it is December and all... but I am enjoying wearing summer clothes a little.
I pretended today was July and wore cutoff shorts, a tank, and no makeup.


Alright Friday's Letters:
Dear pancakes this morning,
you were amazing, but I really should have just had yogurt & fruit... oh well.

 Dear Christmas Tree,
I am so glad I decided to redecorate you. You light up my life (gay), but really I am in love with how beautiful you make my house!

Dear Ben,
I am so happy you are playing Sunday! I have missed you, eventhough Batch helped us beat the Ravens.

Dear College,
I sort of feel like we reconnected last weekend bc I found an old graduation card with $100 and an Express gc. I also had keg beer... forgot how good it is, it made BudLight delicious.

Dear Mommy,
I love how alike we are at times! lol
(and I am glad I ended up picking the bears that weekend)


Dear Toby,
I am sorry my parents put a shock collar on you so you don't destroy the tree!
I sort of feel bad for you, except it doesn't even bother you!


Dear Weekend,
I am ready for YOUUUU!
lots of socializing planned!

Forgot to link my blog on Wednesday, so you can read that here .

In other news, I got to see my very favorite people Saturday night!!
(sad that I missed seeing you though Brittney. dang schedules)

so we hear they are at a bar in City Center...
me & liana were cracking up about how schmancy it was as we were headed there.
we were not at all dressed for City Center and were very surprised our friends felt like being so upscale...
turns out we know our friends better than we thought and they were actually at a hole in the wall bar right outside of the City Center area.
much more our style for the evening.

I know we are those people that you are jealous of.
just so good looking.

but all that matters is that we had a good time, and that we did!
and you know I couldn't end my post without mentioning that BIG WIN this weekend...

What I'm loving today:
I am loving that my awesome friends came to visit me over Thanksgiving break!
Travis was in my 1st grade class, in 2nd grade he stole my favorite pencil, in middle shool we listened to Blink 182, and in high school we lived down the street from each other. And now he lives in Nashville playing the drums & touring.

Timothy and I met in 3rd grade, we went to Astroworld together all the time, in 9th grade he went to St.Thomas high school & we went to homecoming, and in college we went to UT football games. and now he lives in L.A. auditioning and getting famous.

such awesome surprises in the same day.
I am loving this amazing drink I had the other night:
 I am loving this "grown-up lunchable" from Starbucks:
and these quotes:

red eye

I went out the other night.
That is a BIG deal.
I had eaten way too much on Thanksgiving, worked 10:30-9 on Black Friday
(which was extra busy), and then had a 10:30-9 work day the next day.
I was impressed that I was up for it, but I miss my friends & it had been too long since we had all hung out. plus it was sort of Preston's birthday.
Of course I wanted to take pictures.
and for some reason the flash was ON the whole time.
what a waste.


fun night, love them all!

hot chocolate

So I am a bridesmaid in a wedding in less than a month!
Me, the other bridesmaids, and my mom threw a couples shower a few weekends ago.
There was a lot going on with it:
-1. There was the potential for lots of people to show up.
-2. It was mixed company.
-3. There would be lots of children.
-4. It was outside.
It was a come and go kind of party so we decided on a
Thanks pinterest.

(I personally think it looked cuter in person,
the trees had more tissue poms & banners)
Their color is horizon blue, so we sort of went with that, but threw in some burlap & champagne color.
The hot chocolate was perfect bc it gave people something to do, the kids loved it, and it is an inexpensive treat.
The girls in the wedding party & the bride:
Brittni bought us pearls for our gift & wrapped them so cute ;)
fun, fun.

If you know anything about me, you know that I
love it.

I don't claim to know everything about it.
it's not about stats and all that to me.
it's about winning. and being so nervous/anxious. and the clock running out. and penalty flags. and yelling at the tv. and hugging complete strangers, because they too, love the game.
So Sunday my mom got tickets to see the Texans play.
and it was one of those games...
interceptions, missed field goals, bad calls, missed catches, turnovers, and OVERTIME.
and then a tie in overtime.
and finally we WON!
crazy game to be at in person.

and then I went home & watched the Steelers.
...I am beyond bummed.
I was pretty sure we were going to lose.
but I am sick of all the INJURIES!!
Ready for Thanksgiving & more football!

Hola Pals!
Happy Friday,
usually Fridays are more hours/more work and busy weekends.
That is very true for this weekend, but I have lots o fun planned also. can't wait!
omg. I am eating the BEST salad ever as I write this post:
It is perfect!
get it @ Raffa's  .
Let's fill in some blanks with Lauren:

1. My best quality is that I care. Like genuinely care what is going on with other people and their lives .

2. One of my less flattering qualities is that I am super messy and scatter brained. I am just an unorganized spaz from the outside. I get me & I know where everything is, but I stress out my friends and family    .

3. I'd rather be    on a beach or floating the river in the sunshine.

4. Something I have been challenged with lately is    eating healthy
: [ cleaning & keeping up with laundry.

5. I am looking forward to  I don't really have a specific event or time, just looking forward to everyday stuff & busy Christmas season at work!

6. A super random factoid about me is    my friends & I got tattoos of Texas on the bottom of our big toes. They eventually rubbed off, but I still have two little dots and every time I get a pedicure they try and rub it off!
mine is the middle foot lol

7. I want to  be happy. always! and lose like 10lbs lol
Have a great weekend!

Egotistical Post for sure.

I care about me sometimes. obviously... I write a blog.
this post already sounds super egotistical, so I will just keep it going with:
What I Wore Last Week/This Week.
yep, a week of my outfits.
I saw another blogger do this and I thought it was pretty cool.
plus I can post 7 mirror pics on my blog, but not facebook...
that would be excessive! : ]
I LOVE this top from my store so very much!
(it's Sold Out now)
and my 3 year old AE jeans.
 This dress is actually too tight, but I like it a lot & so I still wore it. ha.

Second longest day of my life. I don't know why, but lately Fridays are killing me.
I also wore the same Target sandals for the 3rd day in a row. so fashionable ; ]
I wore my very favorite !iT Jeans.
and this studded top is cute, but gave me horrible static.

You know I wore a jersey.
and Steelers didn't play, so I went with my Texans.
I didn't wear clothes.
I didn't work so you don't get an awesome mirror pic : [
It obviously got cold from Sunday lol
cold=leggings & boots
...and a horribly unhappy face?
I wore my favorite jeans again & my new black flats. love them.
I actually fixed my hair too!
Ps. you can see the Christmas tree in the back. It is up!
Sick of looking at pics of me yet?!
me too.
Happy Thursday!!
