Holiday decor.

I have never put up decorations in my apartment. Doesn't matter what holiday, I'm not doing it. I have considered it a few times but then the thought of having to pack that shit away in January changes my mind. Bo on the other hand cannot wait to have our own house so he can put lights up and the whole 9 yards. This year, since we are in an apartment, he decided that just a tree would do. 

We had a discussion about what kind of tree and who was going to decorate it... Blah blah blah. I wasn't feeling it but he pressed on and said "it will be fun". 

Sure, it will be fun..... Well you know what is fun. Doing something nice for someone and surprising them. 

Last night I drove my happy ass to Walmart for a cheap pre-lit tree because I needed to make this as easy on myself as possible. I was so determined to get this damn tree I had to visit 2 walmarts due to these fancy trees being a hot commodity. Well, I got it and put this bad boy together all by myself. Feeling super accomplished and my work is done. Not really, Pinterest has taken over my evenings and now I get to buy decorations.... $$$. I'll use Bo's credit card and tell him "it will be fun". 

Pups are scared to death of it and won't get off the couch.


I can't wait to see how excited bo is. 

Oh and next week we at both off ALL WEEK! 
We have a little road trip planned with family visits along the way. So pumped!

Living solo Monday- Thursday.

When bo is gone,
I get to watch all the Bravo TV I want without any interruptions.
And drink wine out of a fancy cup. 
And have long chats with Ashton who now lives in Colorado.
And eat leftovers. (Because he cleans out the fridge with his appetite when he's home)   
And ace and cash think they are king of the castle. 
And Ace & Cash just live it up.

Monday Monday Monday

So today is a payroll day, which means I am swamped, so I typed this little bit of randomness last night...

Friday Bo got home late so I had a little dinner prepared.. = me seeing Papa Murphy's and getting us my favorite pizza. He loved my fancy candle lit dinner. 

We headed to his house on Saturday morning, he had every intention of cleaning out his boat/ getting it ready to sell- but we ended up spending the day with his grandma because it happened to be her 69th birthday. 

We walked into her house. 
Me "Bo, look at those flowers (With one of those little plastic "happy birthday" signs), when is her birthday?" 
Bo "I don't know... I guess this week some time"
Grandma enters the room... "Hey what are yall doing here"
Bo "Just came in to see you and take you to lunch for your birthday" (nice save)

She bragged all day that we came in town to surprise her for her birthday. 

Bo = "grandson of the year" on accident.

Also bought Bo some youth XL under armor pants and a Large hoodie because the hanger posted different sizes. Note to self: I will never buy something without looking at the tag from here on out. Good times. 

Oh and fancy new glasses are in. They make a world of difference. #officeselfie

Jiffy Lube

To the entire noon staff of Jiffy Lube,

Thanks for taking your sweet ass time today when I stopped in to get a quick oil change. I had one precious hour to break from work and I had the pleasure of dealing with such kindness. I realize it is cold outside and you would rather be at home, as would I, but everyone has a job to do. After the treacherous experience is over, you want me to rate your services from 1 – 5 as one of you stood over my shoulder and apologized for the wait. Not going to lie, these places are always a little sketch to me so I gave all you assholes a 5 because you scare me.

Bocita comes home today! & I have a secret mission this weekend. I will fill you all on Monday.

I was in the spending mood...but then remembered I already spent $200 on glasses.

I finally made it to the mall last night. I had never been to it before so I wasn't sure what stores it would have but it looked huge from the outside so I assumed it would have my go-to stores.
I was on a hunt for those jegging/leather pants from Limited. This mall doesn't have a Limited.
Then my hunt changed to Mac for more make up. Dillard's didn't have a Mac. At this point I was a little annoyed.
Since I was in Dillard's, I hit up the shoe department. I thought I needed some new black boots but after trying 3 pair on I decided I would wear flats more.. but of course I didn't see any flats I had to have... I felt bad for the lady that put up with my indecisiveness. Wasted her precious time. 
Since I was at the mall I decided to mosey around... Bath & Body Works always gets me with their "buy 3 get 3 free" deals. I am going to give these away during Christmas. My plan is to start shopping early this year and so far I have a new "filler" items. Its a start. Oh and I always need a nail file so I grabbed a small travel pack (they are on the left in the pic).
Walked passes Aldo and found those gloves I couldn't pass up. It is getting a little cold in the morning and I needed these for walking my dogs! My whole body is warm except my hands since I have to carry their little leashes.
& Since I parked at Dillard's I had to walk back through and BAM. Leather leggings I have been wanting for months. These bad boys just so happen to be spanx brand which is only a plus. I didn't get up early enough this morning to coordinate an outfit with these but a post about these leggings will appear soon. I can already tell they will be my go-to pants all winter.
SPANX Ready-to-Wow!™ Faux Leather Leggings, Style 2437 Primary Product View 278X350
These are the leggings that you cant even
see in the photos below. Love them.
buy them here.

They were dying to jump on everything.

That is a sweater vest in the middle... I wasn't 100%
sure about it but it is lined with leather so I am thinking
I can pair it with those pants paired with a
red long sleeve top..or any color top + jeans...
 ideas are flowing- ill post pics when I come up with a good combo.

& that beige V neck on the right is super long and comfy.
& only 17 bones. Had to buy it.


the inside of these gloves feel amazing.
best $15 spent last night.
I was in the shopping mood but only found a few items... probably a good thing because I spent $200 at the eye doctor earlier in the afternoon.

It is hump day & I MUST make it to the gym tonight!

& catch up on some TV. Vanderpump Rules is back and I am obsessed.

Tuesday Snoozday

Yesterday, work was a killer. I was busy from the minute I walked in the door and I was dreading my workout all day. 2 ladies were in my office and I told them that I really wanted to ditch my workout and go to the mall & I needed them to change my mind. One replied with "I'm not going to the gym tonight so I can't tell you to go" and the other said "go run for the both of us".

I sat and had a small debate in my head for a few minutes then I walked to the bathroom and the lady across the hall, not knowing I had walked out said, "go in the bathroom, lift up your shirt and then make up your mind, that always helps me." 

I returned from the bathroom and said, "I decided that I am going to the mall!!" And they all started cracking up and informed me about the whole "lift up your shirt comment".

I am sure I butchered the story trying to put it down in words, but it was hilarious. Honestly, I looked in the mirror and remembered I needed to go to Mac plus I need a good shopping trip.

On the way home from work my my sweet Pepaw called and asked if I wanted to go to dinner since he would be on my side of town. Girl doesn't turn down a good meal with Pepaw. He took me to Italiano's, which is a little gem, and I cannot wait to take Bocita there. I had eggplant parm & it was delish. I still need my shopping fix though!

Oh also, I had an eye exam this morning. I have been squinting more than usual recently and I hadn't had my eyes checked since 2011. It. Was. Time. The doc said I just need a light prescription for reading/ computer work. Which is the same thing I was told in 2011 so good news, my eyes aren't going down the drain at a fast rate.

To go to the gym tonight or mall..

Wish List

I need to go shopping... or better yet, put this on my Christmas list. 

These are the cutest pants/leggings from the Limited.
A friend had them on the other day
and she said they are so comfy. 

Jessica Simpson Claudette d´Orsay Pumps
& these would be perfect with those pants....

Who wouldn't want these?!
Currently my tan flats are wrecked and I need these bad boys.
Gianni Bini Robynn Pointed-Toe Pumps
Love. These.
Gianni Bini Raevin Pointed-Toe Flats
& these.

Jessica Simpson Avalona Tall Stretch Boots
These have a stretchy lining on the back = great for larger calves!

If you cant tell, I haven't got new shoes in a while. I wouldn't mind adding a few new pair to my collection.

Shoe shopping (minus actually buying anything) made my Monday a little better!

The laundry basket.

I wonder how many hours a year are spent in waiting rooms. I am sitting here waiting for that one visit a year that all women dread. Yep, the Gyno. Fun stuff.

Anyways, let's rewind to the beginning of Bocita. When we started dating I was wondering how it all would work because he owns a house about 1.5 hours outside of Houston. Yes, that means he would drive that far to and from work daily. Well, in the beginning he spent 3 weeks in Canada. In my eyes this was a test for me to gather my feelings. If I really missed him, then something was there. Well I really really missed him and counted down the days until he returned. 

He returned on a Friday night at 2 am, we stayed at my apartment then drove to his house on Saturday to visit his family. While we were at his house he proceeded to do all his laundry (first and only time I have seen him do this). On Sunday we loaded and headed to my place since I lived 40 minutes away from work and no way would I survive a 1.5 hour commute! So when we loaded up the car he grabbed his laundry basket full of clean clothes. I'm talking 3 weeks worth of clean clothes. I laughed to myself but thought..."Ok. This is happening." There was no discussion, it just happened. If I would've had a problem with it I would have spoken up then. But I let it be and got him a key made. 

After a few weeks of him living out of that laundry basket posted up on my kitchen table I decided it would be nice if me to clean out the hall closet. So I did and then he had a spot for all of his shit. Oh and he is used to coming in and emptying his pockets on the counter, so I got a bowl for that shit too. His things had their spot and everything was going great.

My lease was up in September and the discussion of us having a place together began. Anything with more space would be ideal. We went apartment hunting and found the perfect little place we call home today. 

It's crazy how this life of mine has played out. There I was being single soaking it up and in a blink of an eye I have the most amazing man in my life. We have had discussions about marriage and kids and buying a house, grown up things. So crazy.

Happy Thursday!

Just like Christmas.

My new phone came in. It was something I have needed for a while. I was working with the 4S and let me tell you, it was on its last leg. I was ready for an upgrade. Last night I made a pit stop on my way home for a fancy new case and got it all set up. It's so pretty, if a phone can be pretty? 

And apparently when I was transferring all my music I accidentally downloaded the new U2 album. Never listened to them in my life but I guess I will now... I will get it a shot at least. 
And my new "lock screen" pic. Just me and Bocita at NASA a while back.
Tonight is counting as one of my off nights from running this week. I have 2 off nights a week so I am taking one today and probably one Saturday. 3 miles on Monday and Tuesday left my legs pretty tight. They need a break and a good stretch. 

Happy hump day!! 

Weekend Recap on Tuesday

Payroll ruined my life here is my weekend in iphone snaps. I need to get better at taking pictures again... I know this.
Got my nails done

went to the driving range next to the airport

The weather was amazing

Bo got me this drink, it was good until I found out how unhealthy it is.

Sunday we played golf too and I beat Bo on the front 9. All the sudden he wasn't interested in keeping score anymore. :) Oh the attitude of men. Sunday Bocita went back to Louisiana around 3:30 and I went to get a massage. We had a nice relaxing weekend!

Last night I ran 3 miles on the treadmill and it took me 35 minutes. I will admit I had to walk some, but I ran at a faster pace than normal to push myself. I have to do another 3 tonight and my legs are a little tight today so we shall see how that goes.

Happy Tuesday!!!
