Long Lines & Funnel Cakes

This past weekend I went to the amusement park. I had a blast, despite the long lines and I didn't get a funnel cake. Good thing, I'm going again. I have to have a funnel cake.

Copycat Mondays: Kendi Everyday

If you follow me on twitter, I had said earlier this week that I am moving Copycat Wednesdays to Mondays. With my schedule, Mondays just work out better. My first week at work was good, I'm really liking it so far. I hope to post my usually amount this week, now that I know how my schedule will be.

I'm doing a look from Kendi's again. I just love her blog. Check out the look and her blog here.

Happy Mother's Day

I'm so grateful for my Mom. If I didn't have her, I don't know what I would do. I love you, Mom. Happy Mother's Day! I hope everyone can spend time with their moms on this special day.

Really, it's been a year?

Today marks 1 year since I graduated from college. I feel like I just walked across stage and received my diploma. I miss my college days. Those were the best of days, filled with ups and downs, but I would do it again in a second. Now a year later I finally have a job, starting this Monday! I feel like my adult life has really begun. Bring it on! I'm ready to live life to the fullest. I feel in some ways I wasted this first year as a post-undergrad, but I can only learn from my mistakes. This next year I want to stop being afraid to believe in myself because life is short. I can't keep beating myself up from past mistakes. No more looking back, more of Him (God) and less of me...

It's either my black patent pumps or my brown flats.

Copycat Wednesdays: This Time Tomorrow

This week I was inspired by a look from a couple of weeks ago by Krystal from This Time Tomorrow. I love the pops of color she has in this look. I'm trying to work on getting more color in my wardrobe. My take on the look is a little more subdued. See the original look here.

I had like 1 minute to hurry up and take an outfit picture. It was also starting to rain and windy. I say all that to say, I don't really like this pic but I didn't want to miss this week's Copycat post:)
