Ready for the cold!!
I had the most fun this weekend. I lucked out and got to go to the Blake Shelton Concert at Choctaw Casino with my dear friends and family! It was one of the best concerts I’ve ever gone to. He interacts with the crowd like we’re all at a party in his backyard. He was so engaging, and of course his music is amazing!! I hope he comes back again next year and I can go again!!
I’ve been eyeing this fur-lined puffer coat all winter because I LOVE coats and this one is super cute! It’s down filled and really warm. It finally went on sale, so I got it in white. I hope I get a reason to wear it soon. It doesn’t get extremely cold in winter, but if it even gets slightly cool, I’ll be wearing this out and about!! The fur comes separately, so you can wear it with or without the fur hoodie!
(I probably need to put make up on when I take these pictures, so ignore that for me!! I usually don’t take pictures with my face in them so I don’t have to wear make up!)

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!?
Cheetah Brown sweater
I was really excited about this sweater when I saw it on Amazon! I love to wear browns and this has a cheetah block which gives it a little depth. It’s a lighter weight knit and feels comfortable on. It looks like it would be itchy, but it’s not. I am wearing a small, but I think that it’s a little large on me. Sadly, I’m probably going to return it because it’s too big, but I really like it other than that.
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!!

Sparkle and Shine on New Year’s Eve
What’s everyone doing for New Year’s Eve? We will be at the casino for the Roaring Twenties Party including a concert by ZZ Top!! I think I’ll be wearing a little sparkle and shine to the party! I love this over the shoulder sequined shirt!! This is a size Small and fits pretty well. It comes in other color options, too. I thought it would have more sequins, but when it’s on you really don’t need any more!! I won’t be wearing these pants because they’re too big, but I might wear the booties.

I’m totally loving the batwing look. This sweater is so cute. It comes in several color options. I love the sweater material and will be wearing this every chance I get. This is a size small.
BTW, the belt I have on in the second picture is pretty awesome, too! It comes with three more belts, so there are lots of options. It’s a stretchy material in the middle. I’m only wearing this one since these pants are too big, but it can be worn to help style your outfit, too! Mine is a sized 26″-32″.

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!!

Ugly Xmas Sweater
Once a year we do an Ugly Christmas Sweater day. I’ve worn the same ones for the last 30 years or so, so I decided to update my ugly Xmas sweater. I actually think this one is pretty cute! I really like the material and it fits true to size. This is a small. I can’t wait to wear it to work!!
Another great thing about Christmas is you or your family can splurge on things that you normally wouldn’t buy for yourself. This is a list of things that I would love to see under my tree!! These are all on my wish list because most of these things I probably wouldn’t buy myself because I’m too thrifty!! Click on the pictures for prices!!
1. This cute white puffer jacket with fur hood. It is so cute and would be perfect when it gets cold since it’s 90% down.
2. The MacBook is on sale right now. I never see it on sale!! I need a new one because the one I have is getting old!!
3. I have always wanted a fancy camera. I don’t know if this is the best starter one, but it’s a great price for a beginner.
4. My house doesn’t have a good full length mirror and this one has a decorative frame.
5. This isn’t really a splurge, but I love the colors on this sweater.
6. I would love a Smart TV in my bedroom. The one we have in our den is the best.
7. I miss my puppy when I’m at work. With the Furbo, I can see her and give her a treat!
8. For some reason our door doesn’t have a peep hole. The ring would be a great solution because not only could I see who is at the door when I’m home, I could see who is there when I’m at work, too!
9. I love my patio time, but the wood fire pit puts out way too much smoke. This fire pit looks good.
10. I don’t think anyone can have too many pairs of Uggs! I love the lacing on the back of these.
