Bridal shower! 2 weeks until the wedding and sickness!!!

Taco salads have made an appearance over here again. So easy for lunch and last minute/running late mornings. It is just lettuce, salsa chicken (throw chicken and salsa in a crockpot and let it cook on low for 6 hours or high for 3 until you can shred it and voila), cheese and hot mild sauce.

Mom was in town this weekend!!! We all went out to breakfast!

Word of Mouth Cafe in Salem is AMAZING!!!!!

I got biscuits and gravy with bacon and eggs.

He got creme brulee french toast with corned beef hash, eggs and bacon

Stitch Fix for Europe!!!

Good morning!!!

Europe is coming up quick and after asking my roommate about her packing situation and realizing we have 2 formal dinners on the cruise I thought I might need a little more style to add to my wardrobe for the trip. So I my clothes will be have stylish have workout clothes hahaha. I ordered a stichfix and for the first time gave them a dollar amount that I needed to stay with and they totally listened! She was actually $1 under my budget! I was impressed. But I won’t be keeping the whole box unfortunately. I wish they gave you like 10 things instead of 5. But here is what was in the box:

This necklace is actually on point for my style but so much so that I have at least 2 necklaces that are pretty similar hahaha.

This doesn’t wow me or unwow me. I have been starting to lose weight so in another 10lbs it will look totally cute but I have a few things in this style already.

LOVE this shirt, it is cute and comfy and has Polka Dots which are totally my jam. It is adorable and conservative so I can wear it to the more strict dress code places in Europe like Vatican City. and it is loose a breezy so I shouldn’t be dying on a hot day. This is definitely a keeper.

This dress is the style I love, its empire waist-like and its a dark green color which I love, it would be great in fall with leggings and boots and I like the neckline design, it makes it cute but still classy because it doesn’t really show cleavage. But again I have a dress pretty similar to this so I unfortunately don’t need to spend the extra money on something similar.

The fifth piece is this kimono cover thing. I don’t hate it but I don’t love it. I can see how it would be cute with jeans and a tank top in the fall and the colors are great but I am not 100% sold on it. And if my first thought isn’t “omg I have to have it” then it goes back.

That leaves me with the polka dot shirt. Maybe I will check out target and some discount websites.

StitchFix business edition

Hi!!!! You all know I love stitchfix, if you want to try it follow this link:

https://www.stitchfix.com/referral/7169629?sod=w&som=c

There is no commitment, you can cancel or pause anytime you want.

As I have said I am working full time now and the job I got requires me to dress business professional. I had one jacket/blazer (from stitchfix actually hahaha) and one pair of dress pants. I had a few shirts I could rotate around but that is it. My roommate lent me a pair of pants and two blazers indefinitely but even that addition to my wardrobe meant that by the end of the week my clothes were starting to stink a bit. Especially when you factor in that my jacket gets folded up in my bag on top of my lunch either for the ride to and from my car on the train or that plus the 1.5 hours I am in class, that didn’t help the smell.

With all that said, I went to stitchfix, I hadn’t gotten a fix since last august since I have been broke, but I said I wanted a fix, let a note for my stylist that I needed work clothes and this is what I got:

 

White lace detail top and black (stretch and comfy!) dress pants 

Green sort of pleated top, love the deep green color

Super comfy, again slightly stretchy, navy blazer

And this skirt. Again super stretchy and comfortable. 
I love it all and am keeping it all!!!! Shout out to my aunt for sending me a little money for my bday which helped me pay for it!!!!

 

 

Stitch fix!!!!!

This is my last stitchfix for a little while 😦 My rent is increasing so my budget is severly decreasing. I will now only get stitches every other month. C’est la vie.

image

My sad last fix until late August.

Of the 5 items I kept 1. Can you guess which one?

image

image

Cargo jacket, I love the detailing on the sleeve and back.

image

Stripped dress, I like the detailing at the bottom

image

Love the color and the style of the jacket

image

image

image

Love the maxi dress, the length, comfort and the design of the back

image

A romper! I like the pattern and the frill on the collar.

So, what did I keep?

9 miles and a stitch fix

Hi!!! Happy Saturday! 1 more day at the Tulip festival and I’m free!!!

I worked just under 5 hours and came home to run 9 miles!
Artemis made it 3.25 before she didn’t want to continue. It’s not much of an endurance improvement for her but it’s something lol. Then I went on to do another 6 miles after I dropped her off at home.

I listened to a book on tape while I ran.
When I got back from my run my Stitchfix was waiting for me! After a much needed shower and some relaxation it was time to try on clothes!

image

This was the first top, it is cute but was a little tight in the boobs lol so it’s going back.

image

Top #2 was this which I really liked but I know I don’t NEED so it’s going back because I am short on funds.

image

image

Next was this black jean/corduroy stretchy jacket which was ok but I don’t love it and it is a smidgen small in the hips and boobs so it’s going back.
Now for the 2 things I am keeping

image

These shoes!!!! They are wedges so they are heels but aren’t as hard on the feet.

image

And these dark wash jean legging things. They are skinny jeans, super stretchy and even have an elastic type waist band! They are super comfortable  and super cute and flattering!

I told my stylist I needed stretchy fashion legging things because as my leg muscles grow jeans become more difficult to wear and she totally delivered!!!!

And I love the shoes because I love wearing heels but don’t want to strain my feet and back (any more than necessary with working out lol) and these are way better than stilettos or something like that.

What do you think?

What was your workout this weekend?

The first rule of fight club….

Happy Saturday!!!

The tulip festival was good day, busy but not crazy.

I came home and read a chapter of my book club book the watched a Netflix documentary on the barkely marathon. The first rule of the barkley marathon is you don’t talk about the barkley marathon…..oops i broke rule #1. This race is INSANE!!! In the i think 30 something years it has been run only 15 people have ever finished it………I WANT TO DO IT!!!!!! But not for a long time lol i have to learn how to navigate a trail map and all that cause there are NO ROUTE MARKERS and its in the Tennessee wilderness.

Card dinner

And now its sleep time for my race tomorrow. Goodnight.

Google the Barkley marathon and let me know if you want to try it with me :mrgreen:
