Random thoughts & my first outfit post

Today was maddening
When I came home for my lunch break I found this:
In case your confused as to what this is, let me explain. 
It is pretty much all of my favorite yarns un-raveled and tangled together.
How did this happen you ask?
Well my husband was supposed to be watching them, but instead was playing W.O.W.
So the puppies got bored and decided to be mischievous.
I was furious.
But Oscar seemed quite pleased with his actions.
he is so sly.
Anyways it really put me in a funk. I took a nap for the rest of my lunch break and then went back to work. After work I still wasn't feeling all that happy, until I went to get the mail and found this:
One of my readers an old friend named Sarah had left it in my mailbox with a sweet little note. Just because.
She had seen this somewhere and thought of me. Seriously who does that?? And for someone who they haven't seen in a very long time! This girl made my night and I love it. Sometimes I am so happily surprised by how genuine people can be. Thank you so much Sarah!! You are such a sweetheart!
This necklace prompted my first ever outfit post.
(don't mind the bad photo and terrible angle)
Here goes it, head to toe.
Headband: Made by me
Necklace: Given to me by Sarah :)
Top: Express
Pants: Nordstrom
Shoes: Toms
Wrist cuff: made by me
P.S. I am really self conscious of this picture
I am in pretty high spirits right now. I love it when unexpected surprises are left in my mailbox!
Oh and speaking of surprises today marks the 1 year anniversary of Aaron and my engagement.
I cannot believe it has already been a year since that day. I have such fond memories from the proposal(not the movie) 
My husband is so sweet, and even though sometimes we  do quarrel (mostly about W.O.W) 
I truly do love him.
A picture of me the night we got engaged. Trying to show off my excitement and my bling! haha
I hope everyone has a great night!
Oh and Hello new followers.
I would love it if you would comment on this post introducing yourselves so I can follow your blogs as well.

Oh my gracious, I WANT THAT NECKLACE. I've been eyeing some owl necklaces online for months now. I'm so jealous.
And geez, skinny minnie! What the heck are you doing on a diet?!
Blahblahblah I hate my life.
Okay, have a wonderful night! I'm sorry about the yarn. :(

Eva said...

You look really cute in your outfit! :D And thin!! I don't dare take pictures from that angel because 1. my boobs will just take over the picture and 2. if its not my boobs then you can see every little pudgy spot. :( haha. I hate having large boobs.

I love that you quarrel with your hubby about wow because I quarrel (I almost spelled it coral haha) with my hubs about the stupid Xbox haha.

I really hope that you have a fabulous day!
Take care beautiful!

Hello again! i am a recent follower, and I love how you blog from the heart.

Congrats on the 1 year engagement. {i'd love to feature your love story} email me meOmy{dot}socialbutterfly{at}

That owl necklace is adorable! Are owls something that you collect? I have always collected butterflies.

That ball of yarn would have made me kinda upset too! The picture made me want to find a way to keep my yarn organized so that doesn't happen to me. If i find somehting, I will keep you posted!

Cute wrist cuff, I would like to see it up close and how you made it.. {i love things like that}..

Well would you lookie the time. I have got to roam. Have a wonderful day!

That necklace is so cute! And your outfit is super cute too. I am sorry about the pups unraveling all of the yarn! That stinks. I hope you're able to get it back together without too much hassle.

Congratulations on being engaged for one year! That is awesome :)

Delirium said...

Can you untangle the yarn? What a pain. BTW, I have a HUGE box of yarn for you now that it's doubtful I'll ever crochet. Haha. I should bring it to you sometime.

P.S. Dammnnnn, girl! You're almost to 100 followers, congrats! :)

Love, love your necklace!! I've only recently been obsessed with owls, but it's a big obsession... :) I found a cute owl necklace in a local shop a few months ago. I'll have to post a pic the next time I wear it. I'm sure it won't be as cute as your pic though... not sure why you're self-conscience about it!!

Anonymous said...

Srsly....., for cereal? I warned you multiple times to find a better way to store that yarn. In addition, you know I was getting ready for school and not on my comp when they got into it. I demand a formal apology in your next blog post. Kthnxluvu

AmyLee said...

oh man, i wanna see your wrist cuff & headband closer!! they are so cute :)

Janna Lynn said...

Ha ha ha...I sooo read the formal apology comment (cracked me up big time!). Your headband and cuff are extraordinary! You look so pretty...really!! I love the cute..and I totally have a question...are Tom's comfy..I was wanting a pair because they look cute and are so positive with how a child gets a pair when you buy a pair..but I didn't know how comfy they are? keep rockin with your cuteness..and gives those sneaky dogs a hug from me...cause they are soooo cute! :) Hearts, Janna Lynn

Janette said...
