dress: clothes swap. shoes&tights: target
I got this dress for a $1 at a clothing swap/sale at Panache on Saturday. It was awesome! I hope they do another one real sooooooon.
I definitely don't care about the whole "don't wear white after labor day." What does that even mean? Isn't every day after labor day? Does that mean that a man can't wear a white shirt to church? Or a woman can't wear a white tank top or shirt? I just think it's silly and someone made it up to watch all of us question whether we should wear white or not. I say curse you fake rule maker! Curse you.

3. And my husband is always nice to me. I like him. :)
Have a fabulous weekend! Go be nice to someone!

pants: I made um. shirt: gap, shoes and headband: thrifted
I woke up at 2 am feeling.... AWFUL. I was up until 5 or so with a bad stomach and when the alarm went off at 6:30---there was no way I could go to class. I woke up feeling just as bad. So, I stayed home. I don't really like missing class, because who likes make up work on top of everything else you have? But sometimes to feel better you have to take a day off. Soooo, that's what I did. I did finish making these pants though today. One for the win! Ugh, but my stomach is still in nots. Hopefully tomorrow I'll feel much better.

I wore this after church on Sunday to dinner at Rob's parents and then again on Monday. But on Monday I wore socks and sparkly shoes. I do this often. I wear something on Sunday, no one sees me but Rob and then I wear again to school on Monday. It's a good routine. Plus it gives my mind a break for trying to figure out what to wear. CHACHING.

Rob has a secret love obsession with Zooey Deschanel. I mean, who doesn't? In hopes to make Rob fall even more in love with me, I took the plunge and got her bangzz. I think it worked. Rob said, "You're even more beautiful than Zooey." Mission accomplished.

My whole life I've been too nervous and scared to do what I want to do. A lot of the reasons are really personal and some really silly. But I've come up with a motto this semester that I will be living by---Be Brave. Stay Positive.
I struggle with taking risks. I never think that I have the ability to develop my dreams. I coward behind fear and let others succeed before me. But I'm changing this. I will be brave. I will take chances. I'll make mistakes. I'll change my attitude. I am able. I am capable. I am talented. What a rush it is to say all of that and finally believe it. I can be successful. I can and I will. Things can be hard and challenging and that is where staying positive comes into play. I am the master of my emotions. I can either decide to be negative or look for the positive in everything.
Be Brave. Stay Positive.

Rob's birthday (the big 25!) is on Sunday and I have successfully shown him all of his presents already. First, I hid a shirt I bought him in the car. He found it yesterday. Then I tried to make him a bow tie and well.... that just didn't work out so I showed him. Then we were at walmart and he says: "OH MY GOSH! STAR TREK IS ONLY $5!!" (nerd). "Uhhh... I was totes going to get you that. Guess we'll just buy it now." Then I decided to make him a sweatshirt this morning but then realized there was no way I could hid my sewing machine, so he knows. Welp, I am ultimately the worst present giver ever. Better luck on Christmas I suppose.

Today wasn't as good as yesterday. I'm not all excited about the two out of my three classes I had today. The teachers are just kinda.... blah. But hopefully I'll get a better attitude. It's all about being positive, right? Things that did make me happy today included:
1. a girl in one of my classes coming up to me and saying she loves my blog. Seriously made my day. Sometimes I feel like no one really knows about my blog and it was so sweet of her to say something. She's a little cutie.
2. Rob coming home from work today. He worked all day and it was soooo good to finally see him walk through that door at 6:30. Hugs and kisses make everything better.
3. The dinner I made was BOMB.
