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!

Grid Pattern Sweater

I was so excited about this sweater that I pulled it right out of the package and put it on, so there are a few wrinkles.   Now that I have it on, I’m not 100% sold on it.  I love the feel of the sweater. It’s really soft. What I’m not sure of is the fit on me. I was thinking it would be more of a cowl neck, but it’s really more of a turtle neck.  The length is perfect.  It’s even a little longer in the back.  What do you think?  Should I keep it or return it!?

Color Block Sweater 2

This is the second color block sweater I got from Amazon.  I was expecting not to like this much, because I don’t love over sized sweaters on me, but the length of this sweater makes up for that.  The sweater material is so soft.  I don’t think it’s going to be very warm, so it will be best on a cool day.   I love the colors on this one.  The light blue paired with the orange is really striking together!  I will definitely get my money’s worth out of this one!!

Baby, I’m a Star (Sweater)!

Star sweaters have been really in this year, but I haven’t been totally sold on all the little stars all over the sweater, but this great big star totally has me!! I love the fit of the sweater. The material is soft and a little better made than some of the other sweaters I’ve gotten through Amazon.  I’ll definitely be keeping this one and wearing it often!!

This also comes in a really cute heart pattern. It would be perfect for Valentine’s Day!!

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!!

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!

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.
