hello! i’ve had quite a weekend, and it’s not even over yet! i can’t believe that thursday will be the end of my 30 for 30 remix! i’ve had a great time, but i’d be lying if i said i wasn’t excited to dive into my closet on friday and wear something “new.”
here’s what i’ve been doing for the past few of days…
these were taken on thursday. i thought the kitchen would be an appropriate place for a photo shoot because i was on kitchen duty last week!
the weather started looking up on friday and turned into full-fledged spring weather on saturday!
my roommate traci decided that we should enjoy the AMAZING weather on saturday by going to the reservoir and having a picnic for a few hours. here are some pics!
it was nice to wear a dress without tights! i actually got a little color (hard to tell here haha).
traci and michelle.
love this pic. soaking up the sun!
that evening, a group of us went to the crawdad hole for dinner. i had to eat something before because i don’t eat shellfish, but i still was able to eat some delicious corn on the cob and boiled peanuts! here are a few pictures from dinner:
claire, michelle and molly!
traci and me playing with my fun, new app that i downloaded at dinner. i’m going to have wayyy too much fun with it.
tonight and i am headed to Best of Jackson put on by the jackson free press. as some of you know, i freelance for the jfp and am excited to get to attend their biggest event of the year. can’t wait to eat great food and drink from the winners of this years awards. can’t think of a better way to end the weekend. hope yours has been great!
boy am i sleepy. i had a busy day at work, went to a workout class during lunch and then had my first calligraphy class that i am taking at millsaps college. it was super fun and i’m so glad i decided to take it! i’ll post some pictures of my work soon. here’s what i wore today:
So, I didn’t take a picture on this day until i had already changed into a fantastic romper in preparation for the Jackson Roller Disco. Before changing into my disco outfit, I wore my white button down shirt, jeans and leather moccasins.
(excuse my messy room!)
me and claire
10 more to go! i am getting a little antsy, but am trying to keep the remixing excitement up.
today was a good day. i was very productive at work, i wore some 30 for 30 items for the first time during the remix and i was able to go back to bootcamp.
i started bootcamp 3 weeks ago because there was an AMAZING groupon for it a couple of months ago. the groupon is only for 4 weeks and i’m sad that i missed 3 days this week because i was sick, but i’m going to try to finish strong next week. i’ve had a great time and learned so much already. but enough about bootcamp, onto outfit #17!
hey hey. i feel a million times better today, but still not 100%. hopefully when i wake up tomorrow i’ll feel like my old self.
i am really loving blogging, even though i feel like i’m only getting my feet wet. i have been a loyal blog stalker for a few years now, so blogging myself is still taking some getting used to. i want to thank everyone again for visiting and reading!
molly chopped off her hair! isn’t is adorable slash an awesome power/fashion bob? i love it. i am planning on growing my bangs and the rest of my hair out, but i am so impatient! we’ll see if i can actually make it happen.
hello! i’m alive, but barely. i returned a little later than planned from my trip to texas to visit my cousins. i had a great weekend catching up with my cousins and playing with their adorable twin babies.
but then, on sunday night, i came down with a horrible stomach virus. and i mean horrible. i pushed back my flight and stayed in houston to recover. luckily my cousin is a gastroenterologist - i could not have been in better hands! needless to say, i am a bit behind in my outfits, but will resume tomorrow! below are the outfits i wore on my trip before i got sick:
at the office on friday, excited to start my trip!
me and my cousin keith! the last time i came to visit i was 12…it had been way too long! excuse the blurriness, i took these on my iphone.
posing with cousin alex. i was also wearing my jeans and my brown boots this day.
here are a couple more pictures of the twins:
and her cute twin brother andrew. thanks for reading!
so, i have a confession. i didn’t really follow the 30 for 30 rules today. mississippi is experiencing “severe winter weather,” which for the south means some ice and freezing rain. being from utah/colorado, you can probably picture my eye roll, but i do realize that driving with people not used to such weather is in fact dangerous.
i left the house today to see "Country Strong" which stars two of my biggest celeb crushes, leighton meester and garret hudland. its wasn’t spectacular, but i enjoyed the music a lot. before i left i threw on a hoodie and some uggs and didn’t realize that i had broken the rules until i the left the house. whoops. this just means that i’ll add an extra outfit and finish on the 31st instead of the 30th.
okay, okay, enough of my rambling. check out outfit #8 below.
i know, i know, i’m being kind of a slacker about posting, but i am trying! so far i am really loving the 30 for 30, and it has really saved me when i have woken up late/needed to put an outfit together in a hurry. here are my past three outfits!
molly, my fellow 30-for-30-er in the office, and i love taking action shots at work.
that’s molly. we crack ourselves up!!
there you have it! i promise i will be better at posting. i hope you all are having a lovely weekend!
why yes, i did oversleep for the second day in a row! hopefully tomorrow i’ll be back on schedule and have a normal amount of time to get ready. so far, the 30 for 30 challenge has been fun and i feel better after taking kendi's advice of sketching out as many outfits as possible ahead of time.
i’m really enjoying this blogging thing so far. thanks for reading!
also, big thanks to my friend and fellow 30-for-30-er molly for being such a great photographer!
happy 2011! today is the first day of my 30 for 30 Remix challenge! the challenge is to select 30 items from your closet and only wear those 30 items for the next 30 days! Below are the 30 pieces of clothing that I will be working with:
2 pairs of pants
6 pairs of shoes
posing for pics is a little awk, but i’m sure i’ll get used to it as time goes on! i’m hoping to post my new years resolutions here in the next few days, but until then i am loving reading my favorite bloggers’ resolutions. check out Kendi Everyday’s (the inventor of the 30 for 30 remix) wonderful resolution here.
