Dear Life,

I love layering tops these days. It is a fun trend that lets you add a pop of color to what would otherwise be just a basic sweater. 

*Documenting my style to make sure I keep the promise to myself, to always be fully dressed with a smile.

Bringing back my Life's Little Notes...

Dear Back,
You are only 23 years old. Can you stop hurting every time you have to do anything?! I run and workout 6 out of 7 days, suck it up!

Dear Provo,
I swear everyone I know is pregnant. What is in your water here?!

Dear Little Bro,
On Monday you turned 21. I thought I was still 21? Where does the time go? I know you can't read this, but I am sending you some love via the internet. Can't wait to see you soon.

Dear Dishes,
Please wash yourself.

Dear Self,
Stop trying to drink water in bed. You know you will without fail have it spill all over yourself. Grab a water bottle like the hubz does, he is on to something there...


Dear Hubberz,
Thanks for all the hard work and effort you put into studying and school. I know it isn't fun, but I appreciate you always doing your best :) Love you!

  2. So glad you visited my blog!! ;) I've been a long time fan of yours! Loving the plaid - F21 has so many great finds if you have 3 hours to spend in there! Store can pack some stuff in all those rooms!


    Totally hear you on the body aches. I have 87 year old knees and have a fairly needy relationship with icy hot ;)

    Happy Wednesday Chica!

  3. I love your outfit in those pics-especially your boots!

    And I started bringing a water bottle to bed instead of a cup because I got scared of little bugs flying in it while I sleep and then waking up and drinking them (I live in Texas so there are plenty of bugs here). haha =)

  18. Cute outfit :) I took an eerily similar outfit photo with a plaid button down, neutral sweater AND a white brick background a few weeks ago...funny!
    Also, I think we have the same back. Mine has been teaming up with my neck to keep me awake at night they've been aching so much. Stupid body parts.
    Have a happy hump day; you looked dressed and ready to take it on! :)
