Has anyone missed me? Things have been a little crazy around here lately and the blogging has slowed down for me, but as summer school wraps up (only 2 more days!)...the fun starts to pick up. I am looking forward to several trips I have planned in July, visiting some great places, great shopping, and hopefully great outfits! (I don't know what they are yet, but I am sure they will be great.)
i am for real in love with this tank dress. i threw a cardi over it to make it more work-appropriate.
i hated these shoes at first because they tore up my heels...but now i love.
i was even making a shake for breakfast this morning and said to myself, "hey! i can see over the top of the blender!!"
After work today, I came home and changed before meeting a friend for lunch. It's too hot in the afternoon to wear my hair down, so I threw it up into a half french braid/twist/bun combo. Funny thing is, I had some downtime and was reading my bloglovin feed and I see this post.
What I really want to know is how she gets such good pics! It was pretty much impossible for me to pick one of the five hundred terrible takes I took to post.
Anyways...here was my pre-lunch outfit.

i actually bought this dress a while back after they put a francesca's in the mall in amarillo.
i've been sitting on it and couldn't decide if i should return it or not...i figured there was no time like the present to try it out.
my hair is dark and it's hard to see...half braid/half twist bun.
I've been working out pretty hardcore for the last year. Some co-workers of mine asked me in January if I wanted to join their team for Tough Mudder in October. I hadn't heard of it before and it sounded intriguing. I checked it out and it sounded like a blast...so I signed up.
I'm the kind of person where I don't want to really put things out there for fear of failure or not delivering. I figured it's about the right time to put it out there...now that summer school is winding down I'm hitting up the gym even harder. Now that it's out there I'm definitely going to have to deliver...please cheer me on! :-)
one of my new fav nail polish colors: opi moonsooner or later
Time flies when you're having fun. Speaking of time, if you've been reading a while, you know how I always wear my red sport watch on days I teach. It's a total necessity in my job...but I'm in the market for a cuter, everyday-type digital watch. Anyone have any suggestions?
In other news, this weekend my husband and I took a quick trip to Dallas. It was super fun, we came in Saturday, went down to Mockingbird Station on the DART Rail, watched a movie that was SO BAD we walked out along with about 20 other people, snuck into a better movie, had a great dinner, drank a lot of wine, and had too much fun.
We are looking forward to visiting our friends Kristin and Andrew in a few weeks in Minnesota, and then I am visiting one of my BFF's Erica in Austin in about a month. Needless to say, I am saving up my pretty little pennies for both trips...I can't wait!
And on another note, my friend Allison from high school has a super amazing blog. Seriously, you must read. I starting reading her blog way back when because she has always been an awesome, amazing person and I care about what is going on in her life. She is such a super charismatic and charming writer and even if I DIDN'T know her, I would love her blog anyways. I just know it.
She has tons of great posts, but I love her post today on bracelet stacking. Read!!
Here are just a couple of pics we snapped from the weekend...
this is what happens when you have too much free time on the rail.
mmmm...beer flight at b.j's brewhouse. you can't get nunya this in amarilla.
my mom gave me this awesome necklace and earring set!
