OOTD- White flowers.

We just got back from church... whew (said in an airy gasp!) Sunday's are always hard days and (said sarcastically) I LOVE IT!!! We are off to the cemetery with flowers, to teach our kids about Memorial Day and what it really means. Tomorrow will be crazy with golfing, four-wheeling and then a family BBQ! Hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day!

I just have to try it to know!

I know my sister is going to lecture me about this, but I had to order this dress to 'know' if I really wanted it. I mean with Anthro doing free shipping again, the thought is bound to cross any girls mind "who doesn’t want a dress with lobsters all over it?" I just hope it's cute and flattering on. If not back to the store for someone else to grab on sale and wear (that's the other problem, where in the heck am I going to wear that thing?) Oh well, that's why they call it impulse buying! I’ll let you know when it arrives!

OOTD- Biker chic!

Last night I saw the movie "Couples Retreat" first of all HILARIOUS!!!  Secondly in a year and a half when me and my hubby celebrate our 10 year anniversary, we are totally going to Bora Bora!!!  That place is BEAUTIFUL!!!  I can't stop thinking how much I want to go there!!  Here is my OOTD notice the dog in the bike basket, no joke my six year old always puts our little doxie in her bike basket (much to my chagrin), and she is NOT that steady on her bike!

I just want to give a little shout out to one of my Alma Mater's UVU (which actually was UVCC then UVSC when I attended) for winning the dance competition last night on DWTS! Yay, now people can say they have heard of where I earned my Associates degree!  Go wolverines!!

My love/hate relationship with Ebay!

Ebay and I are fighting friends, sometimes (s)he surprises me with things I didn’t know I needed. Sometimes (s)he lets me get really good deals on things I really wanted. Sometimes there are things I knew I could live without and be fine pop up, and all of a sudden I HAVE TO OWN THEM!!!! Sometimes I get outbid on those things I have to own and I hate Ebay again! It's a vicious cycle and right now we are in a huge fight! Last night I lost out on this (pictured below)... and I really wanted it!!! I don't care how bad I wanted it I was not paying 100 bones. So I will keep watching/stalking Ebay, either that or lose 20 pounds so I can fit into the size 2 currently for sale!

OOTD- bright and sparkly!

I broke down and picked up this shirt with a coupon code! I luv it! It's the only thing making me happy today since today the high is 50!!!  I kinda think I look like a disco ball (not in the round sense but in the sparkly sense!), and now I wish I had worn a bright shoe to make this outfit pop!  I think I will go change my shoes!  Ciao.

OOTD- Off with the girls!

Sorry I never got around to posting my OOTD yesterday it was a pretty crummy day.  It's called no sleep + crazy kids + hubby out of town = AAHHHHHHHH!  Whew, glad that day is over!  Today I am off to Logan for a girls day out with no kids!  We will be visiting my Grandma Dorothy's grave (I named my oldest after her) and then shopping and dinner!  Here is my OOTD...

Sale stuff!

Alright back from the 'big' sale and slightly disappointed!!! I did pick up a few things because my sister had her birthday coupon, but that sale was WEAK SAUCE!!! We had a wonderful time shopping eating lunch at Thaifoon Asia, and then having sisterly bonding time until 3am!! It was good to talk and unload on someone who loves you unconditionally! I did have a HUGE idiot moment yesterday when I ran out of gas on the FREEWAY!!! Yeah, in all the excitement of the sale I forgot to gas up.... and thanks to my wonderful older brother we were taken care of!  I have the best family a girl could ask for!  Here's what I got...
