Comfortably geek . . . chic

Friday, October 31, 2014

I have no clothes to wear. That's how I feel every day. Every single day but then I look in my closet and miraculously I find something to wear. Once in a while I have an a ha moment and it all comes together. That's how I felt pairing these overalls with my J. Crew button down.

I felt so comfy and didn't look a hot mess so win win!!

Halloween is right around the corner and we have no idea as to what to wear for our family themed costume. There's three of us. What do you think we should dress up as?

Here are some of my favorite themes from around the web . . . .

What do you think we should dress up as?
The munsters?
The three stooges?
The three amigos? 
The incredibles? 


Maybe I'll DIY but I'm not sure I'll have enough time to get super creative. 

Stay tuned!

We have a new friend, Xena.  She's our super cutie lab-boxer mix puppy. Boxador, I think?  I literally know nothing about canines.  My sister in law's boss gave it to her but seeing that they have three Chihuahuas at home, she gave her to us.  The owner didn't want her because she's a girl and she's a little chubby apparently.  I can't tell she's overweight.  She's 6 weeks old.  The vet said she's healthy and happy.  She got her shots today.  She keeps following me around and she keeps gnawing at my feet.  She's so cute! She's supposed to grow to 50 lbs, dang that's big.  My research shows that Boxadors are fun and lovable and good for kids so that's good since we have a 7 month old.  Xena is so sweet and has these huge eyes, she looks a bit strabismic actually.  She'll probably grow out of it though.  She's getting used to us but she seems to be adjusting well. I can't wait to get her this bed or this one, super cute!

Date Night

Monday, October 27, 2014

Every night is date night for me and my boo . . . bow chick a bow wow .  However, there are certain times when we actually leave the house for date night.  Last week we went to Pax Americana, mmmmm delicious! I had the brisket and it was super delish.  The drinks were really good too.  I loved the place, classy but also cozy.  Loved it!  Things with our little man are so perfect but we always find time for ourselves as it is important to maintain the relationship to each other as well.  I've been dying to wear all my sale clothes that I bought over the summer so I decided that this would be the perfect occasion, unfortunately most are sold out.  Sad face.

I'm wearing my current pair of favorite shoes, SJPs Fawn.  They are super comfortable!  Outfit details below . . . stay tuned for my next adventure!

Five years ago I married . . . a man.  I can't say I married my best friend because I have a best friend and we aren't married.  I married my soul mate? Hmmm, honestly I don't think I can label my husband as a soul mate or a best friend or anything.  He went from being a complete stranger to being my boyfriend to being my fiance to being my husband all in a matter of 3 years.  I think with time he's become my best friend,  I can't imagine sharing what he and I share with anyone else.  He makes me laugh, he makes me happy and he most definitely makes me MAD! Mad in love, mad with anger, mad with desire . . . just mad.  I know this sounds corny but it's hard to imagine anyone else being as happy as I am with him.  Is that bad? I guess everyone thinks that when they're with their special someone.   We do fight a lot . . . mostly over the GPS.  He is so stubborn!  I hate how stubborn he is  . . . yet I love how passionate he is.  The last five years have truly been a blessing.  My friends say he deserves a medal for dealing with my shenanigans and that is true.  I must agree.  I've grown up a lot during this marriage and I have to thank him for putting up with me when a lot of men probably wouldn't.  He makes me want to be better all the time.  I am very grateful to have him in my life and I am very grateful for the great dad that he is.  Our baby Niko has a great role model and I can't wait for more babies and I can't wait to see what the next year brings.

I love you baby . . . every time you miss me just press the bear . . . .

Love is in the air

Monday, October 13, 2014

So many lovely weddings! Weddings are my favorite thing in the world.  Everyone is so happy and in love and if it's a Mexican wedding it will be super fun!

Last weekend finished up my last round of summer weddings.  All of them were beautiful and exciting and very different.  It's always exciting to see everyone's style!  Last weekend my friend, J was married.  I've known her since first grade! The weekend prior I was matron of honer at GG's wedding, we've been friends since freshmen year in high school.  She let us wear whatever we wanted as long as we wore gray dresses and yellow shoes.  So much fun!
