sinuses are not black and white...







 Another weekend...gone too soon...and here we are again with Monday.  So want to know a random fun fact about me?  Well it's not actually fun...it kinda sucks actually...my name is Melis, and I have sinusitis.  What is this weird word you ask?  Basically it means I get sinus infections...a lot...like a lot a lot.  This all started probably about 6 years ago.  I would get horrible pain in my face...like someone just punched me and then ran over my face with their truck...like a big truck.  And every time I went to my dr. he would do the same thing...look in my nose, look in the throat and say, "yeah it's really red and swollen, you have a sinus infection"...ugh no shit dude.  It got to the point where I would have them multiple times a month...and I tried all the meds and nose sprays and nothing seemed to help.
And then I moved to Texas...and little did I know that San Antonio is like the WORST PLACE EVER for people with sinus and allergy problems.  Probably should have done some research on that one because all of a sudden I kept having all of these problems I never had before...headaches, and rashes, and cracking in my face...yes I could literally hear it cracking...and the worse part is I had just gotten used to feeling like shit at some point pretty much every day.  It was rare that in the past 6 years I've had one day where I have felt good all day long.  I basically have just been living with all of these symptoms and it's become my new normal...which sucks, because who wants to live like that?
Well the good news it that I finally found an ENT here that gets it and after having a new CT scan and seeing how messed up my face actually is, this week I'm having a fun little procedure done called balloon sinuplasty.  So basically I'm relying on some balloons to fix my horribly jacked up face and while there is no guarantee that this will help, fingers crossed this will be exactly what I need.  And then when you see me smiling in my blog pics you will know that I don't secretly feel like total shit and like someone is kicking my skull in.  I can't even imagine what a "normal" face pain free day feels like, but hopefully on friday I will find out...and celebrate with champs and cupcakes of course!!  Until then, you can enjoy my adorbs black and white outfit with H, who also has allergies, but that's a story for another day!  Happy Monday loves!!

plaid and poufs...



 Three things I love about this look...
1) The fact that I could eat like a dozen cupcakes, 14 cheeseburgers, 11 pizzas and hide like 8 puppies under this dress and no one would know because it's so big and awesome.
2) An overly flowly dress needs and overly obnoxious necklace...I'm all go big or go home...at least I think that's what you're supposed to do when you live in Texas.
3) My hair has a lovely little pouf that shows off my blonde and purple...it's like I'm a whale in this huge dress complete with a little hair spout...go me!

crazy hair don't care...



Happy Monday kids!  I'm sure you're all bright eyed and bushy tailed after gorging yourself on beer and nachos during that stupid sport game that took over my insta feed.  Thank god that is finally over!    And I wasn't going to post the pic above because of my ridiculous wind hair, but figured since you're probably hung over you could use a good laugh.  I swear sometimes it impossible to take blog pics where I live.  Because I'm on a hill it is like 10 times windier and makes it very difficult for the hair and outfit to cooperate at the same time.   So I left my crazy hair for all of you to enjoy...you're welcome!  And I'm really hoping this week goes better than last week.  It is going to be sunny and in the 70s so that definitely means things are looking up.  Plus is Valentine's week...which means pressies for me!!!  Also if anyone has any hubby present ideas I'm all ears...boys are just so hard to buy things for.  Maybe I'll just stick to getting Henri a present...he loves anything I give him:)

skulls and gypsy souls...




 You guys, this year has already been off to a rough start for me and my family.  Between health issues and jobs and just life, it's been a one way ride on the hot mess express and it's super frustrating.    Last year had so many issues that I was sure this year was going to be sunshine and rainbows and so far it's been clouds and thunder, but I really do think that everything happens for a reason...and even though right now nothing seems to makes sense I have faith that it will all be clear at some point and I'll be able to smile and know that it all worked out in the end.  

Until then, H and I are going to dress in black and put on our "hard core" shells so we can keep it all together...because nothing says bad ass like a boho graphic tee, a baseball sweater, and a furry hat with pom poms....at least Henri got it right with the skull and crossbones...

Anyways, hope you guys have a happy weekend.  Apparently there is some huge sport game with big men in tight pants throwing balls or something like that...gross.  Peace out kids!!

fringe sweaters and floppy hats...



 Well hello again!!  I finally got my exploded laptop back so back to the blog it is!!  I cannot believe that is is already February...seriously why does time go so fast??  I also cannot believe that this past weekend it was in the 80s...crazy Texas.  Obviously these cute outfit pics were taking before my laptop blew up and it was still a little chilly out.  Don't get me wrong, I loved relaxing by the pool this weekend, but I still have sweaters I need to wear so I'm hoping for a few more chilly days before the heat sets in.   

I also learned this weekend that I need to stop buying so many clothes.  I finally cleaned out my closet...again...and had 6 bags to donate...and my closet is still packed.  Ugh the struggles of being a girl.  Obviously I don't mean to keep buying super cute things, but when super cute things find me then I feel that is my duty to give them a loving home...right?  Yeah, so ok, have a happy groundhog day loves!!!
