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!!

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!!

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.

Off the Shoulder Winged shirt

I wasn’t really sure about this shirt when I bought it, but I really love it.  It’s off the shoulder and it’s winged so it’s super comfortable.  It’s also very soft.  This one is a small, so it fits pretty true to size.  I’m not sure where I’ll wear it, maybe a concert.  I just know I can’t wait for the right opportunity!

Running

I really like running outside, but in the winter it’s just too cold!! I found this headband that has a space for your ponytail that I think will make all the difference in the world! The fact that it’s cute and keeps my ears cold is a bonus!! This will be perfect for the Turkey Trot!

Pillow covers

We got a new gray couch about a year ago. It came with four throw pillows, but it really needed four more.  I had four pillows on my old couch that didn’t match the new couch, but I’ve used those pillows anyway.  I finally decided to get some new pillow cases.  I love the textures on these and they go with the pillows that came with the couch.
