Fashion Friday {Oops I did it again}

A dress with jeans again? Yep! I did it again this is one of the best ways to transition some of your summer and spring dresses into fall and winter outfits. I simply tied my swing dress into a knot and voila! I love the contrast of the black and white with the camel color of the moto jacket. It makes for an easy on the go outfit. Perfect for you getting in some early holiday shopping. That's what I will be doing. I actually start in August. It's better than going broke at Christmas time. Also, on a side note Thanksgiving is next week already. There's also only 6 weeks left of 2018. I don't mean to stress you out or anything. Just keeping it real! 
Happy Friday

Fashion Friday {Weekend getaway}

I am so happy to have my man home with me and we can have a little getaway for veterans day weekend. Headed off to my favorite place. While it's still hot and cold in Georgia it's pretty cold in Nashville. So we can pretend for a weekend that it's actually Fall. Where is your favorite place to visit?

Fashion Friday {Date Night}

This last weekend I had the best time downtown! I was finally lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time. I've lived in Georgia for a couple years now and have never done the SCAD film festival even though I've always wanted to. I randomly saw on Facebook that they were going to be premiering the first episode of my favorite show WITH a q&a panel with the cast and creators. I just about jumped out of my skin and hoped that the tickets weren't outrageously priced. I waited at my computer for the tickets to go on sale. I counted down the minutes and kept refreshing the page. I was ecstatic to see they were only $15 a ticket and it was also when my husband would be home. I couldn't believe how awesome that was! 

We got there a few hours before it started hoping to have a nice dinner downtown beforehand. However, people were already lining up to go in. So we had to settle for subway since it was across the street. We got a decent spot in line and talked with other Outlander fans the whole time. They had us line up on the opposite street from where they did the red carpet. I was obviously too excited to be thinking straight because I missed that opportunity. They finally ushered us in and I scored a few seats third row back from the stage. I had never been to the Lucas theater either and it was so gorgeous I definitely want to go back again. The opposite was amazing and I can't wait for the new season to start and the cast was so amazing in person and hilarious! I loved every minute of it. Especially with my handsome husband. We definitely came full circle from him starting this show and getting me into it. Then going to Scotland on our anniversary trip and going on the Outlander tour to seeing the premiere and the cast. It's been so awesome!

Fashion Friday: We survived

This week was a crazy couple of weeks. My husband came home from deployment so we've been just stepping back from the world to be a family again. Readjusting to family life again is such a weird thing after being apart for so long. You get used to living that single parent life. You develop a new routine. Only to have to jump back into how it was before they were gone. You can check out my deployment survival checklist here. 
I have to be honest it worked for me only during the school year. The summer was hard doing it on my own with the kids. My little man is a bit wild and I definitely needed another set of hands and eyes for both kids. Good news though we did in fact survive this deployment.

Hope everyone has a great weekend. Happy Friday!

Fashion Friday {Mental Health Day}

 This week we had international mental health day. I wanted to just share what I posted on the day. 

"I wasn’t going to post anything until a conversation with my brother proved that people really believe in perception. If you don’t let them in they tend to think your life is perfect. I pride myself on being real, genuine and honest. All my life I have dealt with depression and later on anxiety. I have had many hardships {death of my son, getting cancer, deployments, getting teased/bullied} For a time I needed medication for anxiety but for ME it only made it worse. There’s nothing wrong with asking for help. There’s nothing wrong with talking to someone. Let’s get rid of this stigma about mental health and have a conversation about it. You are not alone! "
Ps 9:9-10: The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you (NIV).

Fashion Friday {Glass Houses}

It's crazy how it's been a week since I was in California recording the rest of my EP! Well, not recording I should say. I actually got sick and wasn't able to finish the songs. Now I have to get better and prepare another trip to get out there to finish as soon as possible. I am definitely disappointed! I'm working on it. How do you guys deal with disappointment? 

Don't get me wrong things definitely turned around for me. This week my debut single was released out into the world! The response has been overwhelmingly positive! I'm so excited for what's to come. I'm nervous for sure but still really excited!
