Valentine’s Day Decor

I’ve never been the one to decorate my house for the different seasons or holidays, but after Christmas was over, I really missed having those decorations.  I am going to start buying cute little things this year for different seasons and holidays.  Since Valentine’s Day is coming, I bought some cute little LOVE blocks.  These are cute for the mantle. I also might take them in the RV if I go somewhere around Valentine’s Day.  They’re not too thick, so I can put something behind it if I want.  I wish I could have found more stuff on Amazon, so I wouldn’t have to actually go to the store to find holiday decor.

I also got little red throw pillow covers for the couch. I couldn’t find any already made pillows so I had to buy the pillows to go inside. I want to put some square pillows in front of these that say LOVE or something else Valentinesy in front of the ones I have.  I think later today I’ll head to Hobby Lobby and get some more stuff!

Color Block Sweater

I’m a fan of the color block sweaters! I’ve been eyeing them, trying to figure out what color options I thought were the best for me.  I finally decided on the blues.  This one is extra cute because it has bell sleeves!  The sweater material is soft and loose feeling.  I ordered a small and it fit true to size. It’s meant to be oversized.  This is a fun sweater that you can dress up or dress down. It made for a great opportunity to wear my over the knees boots!

This is the first group of photos I took using my new selfie lighting ring and tripod! It was really easy to use!

Gray Leopard Print Sweater

It’s New Year’s Eve and we are headed to the casino for a fun-filled week.  Tonight we will go to a party, then to the ZZ Top Concert.  Tomorrow, we get to go to a special brunch with my sister-in-law.  I’m sure we will find some time to gamble and play slots around that busy schedule. We want to start the year off winning!! (Don’t we all!!)

I already feel like a winner, as I was pleasantly surprised by this gray leopard print sweater.  It fits so perfectly and is a cozy soft sweater material.  I’m planning on wearing this to the casino this weekend, but I’m pretty sure it’s going to become a staple in my wardrobe!! They have lots of other color options and even some other prints.  I may have to load up on these, because this is the perfect sweater to wear to work or with jeans!  Dress it up or dress it down! I’m wearing a size small.  The price is right, too!! It’s under $20!!

New Year’s Eve

I got another sparkly tank top as an option for New Year’s Eve.  I like the way this fits a lot, but I might be too cold in this, even in the casino.  The back of this is just plain black, so if I wear it with a sweater or something, it could work. I got the small in this shirt.  It also comes in other color options.

I also got these faux leather leggings, but I don’t think I would pair these two together other than to just try it on.  The leggings feel really strange, like plastic or something.  They are a little tight, but will probably stretch if I wear them. They hide all the bad stuff, so that’s a bonus to these leggings!!   I’ll be set if someone has a Grease Party! Lol!  I got the medium in the leggings.

I’m leaning towards the leggings with my over the shoulder sparkly shirt for New Year’s Eve, but I’m going to keep this shirt, because you never know when you’ll need something sparkly!!

Cheetah Rocks

I love the cheetah shirt that I got from Amazon!! It’s the perfect running around town shirt.  I paired it with a black vest since it was a little cool outside. It’s long enough to wear with leggings and cute with jeans with the front tuck-in.  I am wearing a small and I’m considering getting some of the other color options in this shirt.  There is currently a 15% coupon, but no telling how long that will last!

Buffalo plaid

This has been the year of the Buffalo!! Buffalo Plaid that is!!! I had planned on getting an awesome Christmas Card Photo this year, so I bought myself this cute shirt. I bought Alan and the dog cute shirts to match, too.  It was going to be the perfect card photo.  The only problem is that I never got around to taking the picture!  Oh well! There’s always next year!!

Hair dryer brush

I have A LOT of hair and it drives me nuts when I try to get ready.  I can’t let it air dry, because it looks like I have a perm when it dries. It’s not a cute perm; it’s a flat out mess.  I have spent so much time drying my hair, then straightening it.  If I am going out I have to dry, straighten and then curl.  It’s just so time consuming, so I usually just wear it in a ponytail.

On a whim, I bought a hair dryer brush.  I had one before and the bristles were so small that it didn’t work with my thick hair, but I wanted to give it another try.  I’m sure glad I did.  I was able to dry my hair today and didn’t have to straighten it afterwards!  I highly recommend this dryer brush if you have thick curly hair!

Concert Night

Another fun concert night at Choctaw for Alan’s birthday weekend!  Charlie Daniels Band was great! It’s hard to believe he’s 83!! He put on a fun show and engaged with the audience.  Travis Tritt was also on fire!! We had such a great time!!

Alan wore the buffalo plaid shirt that he said made him look like he was wearing a table cloth. We were supposed to be taking Christmas Card photos in it, but we never got around to taking them. I didn’t want to be all matchy matchy at the concert, so I wore my khaki knotted back sweater.

RV Christmas

I got the cutest Christmas decorations for my RV. I’m really happy with how it turned out.  It makes me feel more at home while we are out of town celebrating my husband’s birthday!!

The two pictures are a little close together, but I didn’t want to change the hooks I already have up, since I normally have different pictures up there. Maybe I’ll have to get some more pictures and turn it into a picture wall.  

Buffalo Plaid RV Trip

We are on our annual Thanksgiving RV trip to the Choctaw Casino in Durant this week.  I can’t believe I talked my husband into our matching PJ’s, but it’s the cutest thing ever!! These pajamas are so comfy.  I sized up to a medium because I like my pajamas loose.  The dog even got in on the action with her buffalo plaid coat. Excuse my fly away hair, it’s just how it is, even with a ponytail!
