what i wore to work: november

i am going to try my best to keep this series going, just as long as i remember…hehe
so here is november’s post for

what i wore to work

follow me on instagram to see more outfits that i may post throughout the month!

i work in a professional office as an accounting specialist, so sometimes i meet with the head honchos and have to look my best. i work behind a locked door but i do interact with the public, very seldom but it occasionally happens and when it does i have to look professional.
so for me, distressed denim, leggings and relaxed shirts are not appropriate for my work place.  whomp whomp!
but that’s okay! if you can’t tell by my love for polka dots and the color pink, i’m much more of a, high-waisted skirt with some cute bow pumps, gal anyway!

a texas bachelorette – part one



i don’t even know where to begin.
how did i get so lucky to have so many beautiful, caring, wonderful girls in my life?
this past weekend was unbelievably fun and made me feel so special. my liver may hate me but i am so so happy.

i have to give all the props to my maid of honor, ms. preslee. i am so grateful and again, lucky to have a best friend like her. i can’t believe all the little details she planned out to make my weekend so special.
i am so happy that she is the one that will be standing right next to me when i marry the man of my dreams, i don’t know that anyone could be any more perfect than she is.

alright, enough of the mushy gushiness.
this post will be setup like ‘our weekend adventures‘.
let’s get this party started!

i scored these chinos at old navy on wednesday on sale // {here}

IMG_9395 we kept it super chill thursday night so that we could save our energy for the rest of the weekend. luckily for me teen mom 2 was premiering. so excited it’s back on!


IMG_9396 friday morning i did my final walk through with all my vendors since it was the last time i would be in texas with some free time. look at this view off one of the terraces right outside the chapel. holy gorgeous!

i’ll post more pictures i took in our wedding countdown post in a few days! keep an eye out for it!

our weekend adventures


IMG_8838 i took the day off friday a long time ago for some vacation time but instead it turned into a day full of errands and appointments. first up was this munchkin’s play, a rumpus in the rainforest. so stinkin’ cute!

IMG_8841 quick stop to get my god awful nails fixed. does anyone else have a panic attack when they cut your cuticles? one little nick and it hurts for days!

IMG_8845 i decided to go old school with a classy french mani. oh and don’t mind that bling…;) hehe

IMG_8847 baby girl’s birthday is wednesday and momma may have gone a wee bit overboard. eep! i am so happy i have such a girly-girl, she didn’t want more barbies or dolls. nope, instead she wanted dresses and shoes. oops…what have i created?

IMG_8849 it’s hot in seattle, y’all! i feel like such a turd though because it’s only about 75° and i’m dying…how did i ever live in texas?!

IMG_8850 after a little cat nap and a few doc appointments i went and picked up a co-worker and headed into seattle to see…THE ONE….THE ONLY…SHANIA TWAIN!!! we stopped at a little mexican place and nommed on some fajitas before…we needed some foods in the belly.

IMG_8861 you guys, i can’t even. i can’t. she was freaking amazing! she played all of her hits and then some! britt and i were standing and singing the entire time. seattle was her first stop on her 2015 tour so everyone has plenty of time to score some tickets! ugh so good! what i loved most was how she was so personable. she hasn’t been on tour in ELEVEN years so when she forgot some of the words to her songs, she laughed and completely owned up to it. just so good you guys. go see her if you get the chance.

IMG_8871 i never knew there were that many country fans in seattle. sold out and jam packed!

IMG_8875 uhm….if i look half as good as she does at 50, i will be damn happy!


IMG_8878 i’ve been ordering so many goodies from boutiques that have reached out and i forget when i’m supposed to get a delivery so this was awesome to wake up to! so cute!

IMG_8881 i worked on crafts all day for jaz’s birthday party next saturday…why? why do i do this to myself???


IMG_8883 this is all cale’s doing. he wanted to stock up on scented candles since we moved the littler box into his office. i wasn’t going to argue with him though. i got the cutest cover-up dress for aruba!

IMG_8894 trips to target = time to play! note to self: never try hula-hooping again. i am no longer in middle school.

IMG_8901 jaz was invited to our neighbor’s kid’s beach birthday party! so much fun but again, so so hot! happy birthday jack!

IMG_8904 such an adorable, fun dad!

IMG_8939 look at that sky! definitely, twirl like you’re mary poppins, weather.

a suit for spring

happy tuesday!
so with my recent move to the main building at my job, i had to up my professional wardrobe.
everything i usually buy is work friendly but because i will be around the public during all hours i needed to up the anti a bit.
so i took a little trip to express and the limited and went a bit crazy.

i saw this cropped pant suit online and loved it and kept thinking how great it would be for spring!
if you’re looking for professional and fashionable attire, i would definitely suggest express, the limited, banana republic and ann taylor. those are my main “go-to” places.

thank you to my mini for wanting to shoot these for me!

our weekend adventures


IMG_8462 thursday and friday was moving day at work for me… wahhhhh…. just kidding. i think i’m going to like it much better being with other co-workers my age. plus now i’m more accessible to people that need me and my services…that sounds weird.

IMG_8472 IMG_8473 cale’s sister, also one of my bridesmaids, came to seattle for a long weekend. so we got to have dinner with her! i think i’m marrying into a fabulous family. hehe

IMG_8477 mina loves her auntie berit!


IMG_8480 woke up to a bat kitty!

IMG_8481 dance class…these are new…way to go alderwood dance spectrum!

IMG_8485 saturday’s ootd
gingham shirt // {here}
kendra scott necklace // {here}

IMG_8486 cale told me to go pamper myself and that’s exactly what i did! some alone time and a mani/pedi = awesome day!

IMG_8488 plus a little bit of retail therapy….ahhhh yisssss!

IMG_8497 a nice lunch with some vino! ya know, as you get older, eating by yourself is no longer embarrassing. instead, it’s peaceful. some tranquility is so nice when your days are so busy.

IMG_8499 i let jaz do my hair… you think i can hire her to do my wedding?

mother’s day!

IMG_8502 so thankful for this little minion! being a mommy is the best job in the world. but being a mommy to this girl makes it the most special!
thank you for making me a mommy and the woman i am today.
i love you to the moon and back, sweet girl.

IMG_8505 so goofy!

IMG_8510 celebratin’ my mommyness in a cute little cafe in seattle!

IMG_8511 oh my noms!

jacket // {here}
shoes // similar {here}

IMG_8527 after brunch we headed to the big ferris wheel where cale propesed last year on mother’s day… mother’s day was on the 11th last year so it wasn’t quite our engage-aversary yet.

IMG_8529 but we decided to re-create our picture last year when we reached the very top! i can’t believe i’ve been engaged for a year now! time flies!

IMG_8530 sole reason i’m marrying this man. i make the best ugliest faces ever! no shame.

IMG_8542 our little family. if cale actually smiled this could have been so cute!

IMG_8545 who am i kidding…why would we ever take a cute picture when we can take THESE pictures instead! we are awesome.

IMG_8555 oh hai there mr. space needle.

IMG_8556 after the ferris wheel we decided to go get molly moons. yummmmm

IMG_8559 “welcome home hoomans”
she’s such a creep.

IMG_8560 and we ended such a great day with a family game of uno! cale won every single time…ugh.

this weekend was so full of awesomeness! i got to pamper myself all saturday and then again on sunday! cale did all the cleaning and all the laundry! including folding and hanging my things up! so so sweet!
and today marks exactly one year that he got down on one knee at the very tippy top of the ferris wheel and proposed! i can’t wait to marry you in 5 months, honey!!!
happy monday everyone! it’s going to be a great one!


our weekend adventures


IMG_5321 i launched our very first giveaway! i cannot express my excitement and gratitude on the amount of entries i have gotten! i’ve gotten about 25+ plus all the extras they did to enter additional ways. you guys are too awesome! good luck to each and every one of you!

don’t forget to enter our giveaway {here} you have until the end of this week. (April 3, 2015)

IMG_7842 friday’s ootd
skinnies // similar {here}
chambray button down // {here}
shoes // {here}


IMG_7843 saturday’s ootd
yes i was a repeat offender with the chambray but i have like 5 different chambray shirts so technically, it’s different.
pants // {here} love this boutique and it’s super fast shipping!
booties // similar {here}

IMG_7848 what’s a weekend without a stop at target? we saw the cutest puppies! they had little hair ties in their hair and i about died.

IMG_7852 ugh… i tell cale over and over don’t schedule an oil change on a weekend you work…i always get suckered into getting the most expensive checkup and i just nod like i know what they are talking about. grrrr when they told me that it was going to take TWO HOURS to change my oil, i kindly asked for a rental. let’s just say that i felt like a spoiled brat because i couldn’t even back up without my backup camera. {eye roll} first world problems right? slap me.

IMG_7854 after the two hours were up, guess what jaz & i had to do? oh yeah…wait some more… i was so irritated at the end of the day that i went home and took a nap which i never do!

IMG_7857 we got invited to celebrate one of our dear friend’s birthday at an indian restaurant and this little love bug was there! miss neva diva lives in couer d’alene, idaho so we don’t get to see her and her parents very often so this was such a treat!
happy birthday, tyler!


IMG_7866unfortunately, sunday starts off at night for you guys. cale & i woke up at 7:30 thanks to our damn cats, i facetimed by “person” and then, honestly, fell back to sleep until 1 pm. {gasp} i never do that! so sunday chores got off to a late start.

then we went to dinner at our favorite mexican restaurant, i didn’t order my normal thing, WHAT A HUGE MISTAKE. always order your favorite…always.

so this was basically my night. blogging, tallying up contestants for the giveaway {!!!} and watching 19 kids and counting.

IMG_7865 here’s a peace offering for my boring weekend. my kid and my incredibly long kitty cat. we got so lucky with lulu for how tolerable she is with jazmina. chandler, on the other hand, is not. whoops.

i am going to apologize in advance if my “our weekend adventures” for this coming weekend is late. i’m going to texas, y’all!!!! i am so so excited. i’m excited to see my friends and family, i’m excited to meet with new vendors but i am ECSTATIC to see and try on my dress for the first time! when i tried her on at the boutique, she was a completely different color than what i ordered, so it’ll be like a completely different dress! ahhhhhhhhhhh!!

please tell me what you did this weekend to take my mind off having to get on a plane wednesday. i’m such a baby
