Birthday Month Part 1

Hello friends!

 

Birthday month is slowly coming to a close, but it’s been a wild and crazy ride, and I have loved every single minute of it!  Birthdays are the best because it brings everyone together to celebrate the life of a loved one!  woot.

Having lived in San Francisco for three years, I consider myself very lucky to have found a group of people who are awesome friends, talented, smart and not bad-looking either.  😉

 

Birthday Lovin

This is just one night of celebrating the birthday month! And we even made some new friends who were visiting and wanted to join in on the good times!

There are many more good times to be had.  Hope you get to share your birthday with wonderful friends too!

Hello Autumn

So it is officially Football Season!  I was walking to work yesterday and there were couples waking around wearing matching jerseys.  Then I went out to dinner and there were some serious DUDES drinking, eating tacos and watching the game.  It was only good.  I always get excited when football season gets here because it means crisp sunny days and it’s my favorite!  Ready to break out my scarves and cute boots!  (Although it has been nice and sunny here in the city)

 

So here is to the new football season and pumpkin EVERYTHING!

 

 

 

 

… but also not forgetting about baseball season. Lot’s of sports to keep us entertained.

Represent!

 

Sweet Setup

 

Happy Tailgating friends!  Whether it be with friends or family or BOTH… have too much fun!  THIS is how I like to welcome Autumn!  hehe

Soaking Up Some Sun

Who hates a sunny day?  Well, to be perfectly honest sometimes I do… I just hate being sweaty.  blah  But I was fortunate to spend some time outside, saoking it in, shopping and lounging.

Pants: H&M Shirt: Can't remember 😦 Shoes: Naya

I love shopping... for anything.

So I really loved this outfit because despite the heat I didn’t feel like I had to run around in short shorts and a tiny tank top… I am just now getting used to showing my arms so I slightly cringe at the idea of a tank top, so this top enables me to take baby steps. hehe  But the pants fit comfortable and were breathable… tmi, but important.  And the top was loose fitting which helped, because I dislike clingy things in the sunshine. Again with the sweating. gross.

And what do you think, taking better pictures?  Less awkward?  Maybe a little less anyways?  Hope you are all having a great month of Septemeber!  I know I am, and I will be sharing the good times soon enough!

One Lucky Girl

Hello all!  So far it has been an amazing Birthday Month, and the beautful thing is, it’s only half over!  woot.

I was able to visit the family this weekend and in doing saw was able to recieve my graduation ring from my mother…. it’s story time.  Get comfortable and grab a cup of coffee and a tissue box if you are so inclined 😉

When I was a little girl, I’d say five years old… or so my mother would say, I bought her a persent out of one of those quarter machines… and I was thinking about it the other day, and had it been an actual toy and not a ring I probably would have kept it, all jokes aside!  But fate should have it that it was a ring, and so I ended up giving it to my mama.  And in being the amazing woman/mother that she is, she would wear it all the time.  The funny thing was, that she would get compliments on it ALL the time… “what a gorgeous ring, where did you get it?”   Mom would just smile and tell them the story.

SOOOO, in celebration of me FINALLY graduating college she had the ring…. yes, she STILL has it… molded and made into a very real ring for me!  It is the most beautiful sentimental thing I have EVER recieved… so much so, that I’m nervous to EVER take it off, and ultra careful in the shower!  (Anyone remember that scene from Apollo 13 when the wife loses her ring down the drain while her hubby is still floating in space??  Not Okay!)

Gorgeous!

 

Sharing the Birthday Love!

 

Was able to share in some good times!  And what can I say?  I’m one lucky girl!!

OLD SACramento

Hello friends!

I had the pleasure of exploring Old Sacramento while visiting the family for a birthday weekend.  It was a hot day, but the place was kind of a dead town… mostly because it was a Friday.  We did a little shopping, walking around and sweating.

Dress: Thrifted Shoes:Naya Bag: Michael Kors, Ross 😉

This dress allowed me to explore with ease, and I think my favorite part is the sleeve length… I don’t know what it is… it’s modest and classy yet fun and girlie.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  I know I did.

First Outfit… woot.

So here it is. First outfit in the “outfit” category!  Yay!

This outfit I put together for the perfect day at the park.  Hanging with friends, laying in the grass and soaking in the sun.  Now the thing about living in the city is that you never know how the weather is going to be, so I matched a tank with a fun blazer.

Pants and Blazer from H&M Shoes: Keds Tank: Target

Had fun playing in the sun, hanging out with Camille, people watching and getting my pictures taken!  Hope you are all enjoying the summer as it comes to a close… personally Fall is my favorite, so I say BRING IT ON!  Bye bye Summer.  I want pumpkin pie and Christmas lights.

Photoshoot, take 1

So my beautiful friend met with me after work, and we went to Pier 14 where there are these crazy fun spinning chairs and we took some pictures.  Still feels a little awkward, but it was gorgeous outside and I was in good company.

Dress: Forever21 Sweater: Nordstrom Tights: Target Shoes:Naturalizer

So here it is, me trying to be less awkward.  Maybe it will never go away but I will be able to PRETEND that it has!  If anything, we did get a pretty view of Coit tower and the Ferry Building, Good Job Camille!

I’m blessed to live in this gorgeous city!  A place everyone should visit at least once! Today we are going to try to give it another go, and we will see how I do… Camille is perfectly fine at TAKING pictures.
