Boots For Days.

Have you ever put your foot in your mouth at work without knowing it? Well, I did that yesterday. To some pretty high up admin people too. The worst part, I didn’t even know I had done something “wrong” until after I had said it. I thought I was trying to end a meeting on a positive note about how our maintenance guys were totally awesome and fixed my sink for me but apparently I didn’t know I had to go through all these fire-y hoops before being able to ask. That probably made no sense. I just feel yucky about it now. BOOOO. Anyways…moving on.

I have a pair of boots from Aldo. They are amazing and I have NO idea what I would do without them. Seriously though, I wear them all the time.

I have been feeling pretty unstylish lately though, so I have zero outfit photos to share. BUT I will share some outfits with amazing boot pairings that I have pinned to my pinterest that I have been coveting for Fall. I may need to try and recreate some of these soon.






Do you have a favorite pair of boots that you love? How do you style them??

Happy Thursday!

The Day We Said Goodbye.

We said goodbye to our front porch tomato plant Sunday night. photo-48Now that it is getting colder, the plant is just getting bigger but not producing many tomatoes. Also, Halloween is almost here and I had no place to put the hay bale.

photo-47See…It is a real monster! It was growing into the roof! So insane!

photo-46So we are now at pumpkins! Just in time for Halloween!

Our porch feels so empty and clean! It feels really nice.

Happy Tuesday!

The Heart Of Fall

There are many reasons I love fall. The colder weather, the clothes, the comfort food, being that much closer to winter. You know, pretty much everything.

What I really love though, the fact that my favorite shows are back on TV. And by TV, I mean Hulu+ and downloaded episodes of shows that I am not able to watch on basic CA stations. There are a few shows that I can really get into but there are 2 shows that I really look forward to every week.

Don’t judge. I totally love them and they really make me happy. I get completely sucked in. It is a nice break from reality.

What are your favorite fall shows?

Happy Wednesday!

A Woman’s Touch

I love our house. When we (and by we I mean Cody) bought it, the previous owners really looked like they took care of the house. They really loved it. And let me tell you, that was really hard to find when many of the homes we looked at were short sales. We ended up getting the house last October. About a week before Halloween. So it has been just about a year since we got the keys 🙂 Anyways, we made A LOT of changes to the house. Cody didn’t even move in until January because of all the stuff we were doing. We changed out all the flooring, put in new moulding, and painted EVERY room in the house. We also did most of it ourselves. Because, I don’t know if you know this BUUUUTTT, floors are expensive! And so is having someone paint your house for you, even if you know the guy doing it!

So, when January rolled around, Cody just kind of threw all his stuff in the house. I mean I told him where to put the furniture, but there was’t much else to be put in the house to make it more home-y. Here is what it looked like before I moved in.

That mirror we bought together a few months ago, But I wasn’t going to try and take it down. Just put your hand over it and pretend it isn’t there. But it is very boring. the only “decor” are those 2 basketball cards that sit on the mantel. Total bachelor pad. I know. But other than that, aren’t our floors and walls pretty??? I totally helped with all that!

Here is what our living room looks like now. I think it looks super awesome. And I love it.

Doesn’t it look awesome!?!? So much better. Not so dark.
Mirror: Home Goods
Everything on the mantel but the pumkin: Pier 1
Pumpkin: Target
Pillows: Target
Blanket: Target
Rug: Ikea
Lamp: Target
White side table: Kirklands

Notice that white table. There is a reason that it is white. All of our furniture is black right now. (it is sooo dark) but most of it was hand me downs and the black worked with the ALL WHITE rental that cody had before he bought this place. But now it is just a little too dark for our (mostly my) liking. We are transitioning over to lighter furniture. So that is why that table is white. It is just a slow process. Mainly waiting on me so I can afford a new couch. I can’t wait though. It will be even more awesomepants than this.

What do you guys think of our new living space?!

High 5 For Friday!

Happy Friday! This week went by really fast!

Here were my top 5 from the week:

1. It is FALL!! We went and got a hay bale and some other fall decor for outside our door. Now all we need are some pumpkins! Oh and how cute is she!?

2. Last weekend we went to Farm Fresh To You’s fall festival. It was awesome. We had a picnic dinner, picked some wine grapes, went wine tasting, crushed grapes with my feet! And a bunch more. It was a really great evening.

3. THIS FORECAST MAKES ME SOOOOO HAPPY!! It was 105 yesterday and now this?!?! I am sooo excited it is finally fall! Hopefully it will stay this way.

4. My new (replacement) phone came. Hopefully this one will last more than a month! Fingers crossed!

5. You see that “If I were President” article? It is on the bottom in the middle on the front page of the home page. Well that is Cody’s (My super talented boyfriend) article that he wrote! I am super proud of him!

Have a great weekend! Don’t forget to check out the other H54F over at From My Grey Desk!
