all you need is love...and a mustache...

 if you've read my blog for awhile or know me in real life, then you know that the most important thing to me is my family.  i have been so blessed to have the most perfect parents, siblings that are my everything, and an amazing...and hot husband!  i truly am so lucky...and i love that we are the most random, ridiculous, amazeballs people ever.
 because two of my siblings are in different states it's rare that we are all together at the same time.  for holiday's usually only one can make it (with or without their significant other), but whenever we can all be together it's great...and also slightly annoying.  i mean lets be honest here...i love them to death, but we also drive each other crazy!
 since we've never been able to plan a time where everyone (siblings and bf/gf) can make it at the same time, and my mom has always wanted a "family photo", we decided to gift my parents the next best thing....a family doodle!!  it seriously was the best present ever and everyone's reaction to seeing it was priceless!!  it is definitely something we will all treasure forever...and if you want to get your own custom doodle make sure and head over to Buck and Libby!  owner megan is the sweetest and is also having an awesome valentines day doodle sale, so if you love starting at yourself as much as i do, make sure and get your own doodle!!

shorts and bows

happy monday loves!  not to rub it in but i'm wearing shorts...in january.  which makes me giddy...until i get hit with crazy random symptoms from cedar allergies which i think is the single worst thing about texas.  i hope you never have to experience the horribleness that is cedar...ugh.  but anyways...speaking of texas (because you know that's all i do now), i'm finally starting to realize that this is now my home.  i know that sounds crazy, but i was writing my address down this weekend for something and it hit me...
i.live.in.texas.  
and when i said that out loud, i didn't cringe, or long for my old home, or get super sad.  i think i have finally started to embrace my new home...because lets be honest...who doesn't want to wear shorts in january?


AND i have super exciting MRD news to share!!!  two of our new spring bands (that will be available next week when the shop reopens) are featured in the latest issue of Girls' Life magazine!  such a perfect way to start off the year for the line...i see big things happening this year...big things!!


 bow band: MRD (available next week), top: apricot lane, shorts: free people
booties: free people, ellie necklace: target

black and white

 it's a week into the new year and what have i accomplished?  well lets see...i watched the entire first season of House of Cards on netflix in a day...yes that means i sat on my ass for about 13 hours straight.  i worked out twice...which for me is actually pretty good.  tested out some new recipes, which were quite delish if i do say so myself.  went on a double date with one of J's fellow officers...hooray for new friends!  and have done a little too much online shopping.  


sequin beanie: vintage, tee: urban outfitters, cardi: apricot lane, jeans: hudson



my goal for the second week of the new year...work out three times, read my library books, and start some spring cleaning...i like this new relaxing thing i've got going on...i should it do it more often!

bloom

 seriously this has been the fastest year ever!  it's also been one of the most crazy and difficult years i've had.  a lot of crazy changes that lead to drama, stress, and challenges...but in the end i made it through, i learned a lot, and i am ready to start fresh with 2014!!  below are just a few fun highlights from my year.
 MRD turband in print...and you might want to check out their first issue of 2014...just sayin'...
 i shot my first gun...it was scary...and weird...and i screamed a little.
 i embraced wearing open toe shoes almost year round...
 i worked on lots of flower crowns for my fave MRD retailer...Henri Bendel...
 and i still pinch myself that this is real life.
 i rocked some fun outfit posts...
 and had my hair pretties worn by the original Bachelorette's daughter...
 worked a little for Free People...
 saw my husband's ass on TV...
 celebrated our one year wedding anniversary...
 finally saw our first musical in texas...sooooo funny...
 embraced my love of hats...


 watched and squealed with delight every time an MRD was worn on Hart of Dixie...seriously coolest thing ever...
 learned to laugh more...
 was first lady to the police academy's class president, winner of top driver and PT award, and the chosen one of Top Cadet.  
 finally found a little bit of fall in texas...
 was so proud of J who is now SAPD!!!
 chopped my sister's hairs....again...

and was reminded that i do in fact have the best.family.ever.
so my word for this year is BLOOM.   i want to grow and blossom into my very best self this year.  i spent a lot of this past year focused on everything but myself and it's time to dedicate this year to yours truly...so get ready 2014 because i'm going to bloom into the most amazing thing i can think of...
me!
