A Little Minkoff


Quick post today, taking a little time off blogging has spiked a little adventure in my outfits, I am not one to wear tight, shorter dresses but I got such an amazing deal on this Rebecca Minkoff dress I had to give it a shot. This might be my go-to date dress!


I have been taking time off to spend some great time with my family and very proud to announce that my nephew arrived safety on the 22nd and he is as adorable as they come and my oldest will be celebrating his 5th birthday very soon. You really do blink and they are grown. I will be posting just not very regularly for the next month as we spend the whole month traveling around but do follow in Instagram(username Jsheahay) to keep up with our journey. I look forward to catching up with all my favorite bloggers very soon and posting about our exciting adventures! Thanks so much for stopping by!

A Little Window Pane Print

Hi! Today I'm linking up with the trend of the week RED with Laura from Walking in Memphis in High Heels.

At this point in my life all the technology around me is rejecting me, my brand new computer has been at HP the past week getting repaired which means my outfits have mostly consisted of leggings and my husbands sweatshirts. I did snap a few of this Loft shirt before going to work, I really love simple prints that make a statement.
If you follow me on instagram you would know I tried on my first jumper this past week and really loved but the fit just wasn't right so it got left behind :(
 My husband's amazingly comfortable sweatshirt I've been living in!
A picture from after church...didn't get a picture of the whole outfit but plans for these beautiful bow tights!

Snowed In

Today I'm linking up with Walking in Memphis in High Heels, The Fashion Canvas, and River City Chic with the trend of the week, bold lips! I love playing with something as easy as lipstick. Thanks to my amazing Ipsy bag I have been able to play with more colors that I wouldn't normally buy. This is Jcats Red Rose Big Pencil and it has been a go to lip pencil for me. Is there any certain color or brand that is your ole faithful?

With this winter storm coming in last night, my husband and I checked the weather channel to get reassured (again) that we would not get hit with any bad weather, well they may have missed it by uhh about 2 1/2-3 inches. (That may not seem like a lot to some people but those people probably have a lot more snow plows, salt, and experienced drivers in the snow.) After a hectic day of picking up my oldest from school earlier than the early release and running to make sure we were stocked up on redbox movies and coffee, we finally got to play in the snow and make snow cream!
Sorry about the rough pictures, but we are not experienced with snow.

Thanks for stopping by and wish me luck with the no school snow day tomorrow!

Old Faithful

 Top Express/ Jeans Express/ Boots Gap/ Necklace Express/ Scarf Stella and Dot
In the winter sometimes I get in the bad habit of grabbing what is warm and dependable, rather then stepping out of the box. Most of the time my dependable is solid, plain tops with jeans. To give it a little something more it's super easy to add a pop with a scarf or necklace. If you are ever in search of a great, thick scarf Stella and Dot has the best scarves that are very easy to throw on.

What's a blog post without a picture of at least one of my babies!
Thanks for stopping by!

A Touch of Green

 Today I'm linking up with Walking in Memphis in High Heels , The Fashion Canvas, and Get Your Pretty On with the trend of the week....emerald green. Green has always been one of my favorite colors because it looks so amazing on everyone! So when I saw this great jacket I had to have it!

Date nights are few these days, but family date nights are not and just because there are a few more little people tagging along doesn't mean I shouldn't dress up for my husband. My amazing faux leather leggings scream date night but my gorgeous green jacket brings everything together.

The color of everything is getting a little drained in this pictures because we took them so late at jacket is a little deeper than this. :(

Fun fact....Green is the most calming color to anyone, think about it it's the color of grass! Thanks for stopping by and next time you get stressed out find a spot with greenery draped everywhere, it'll calm you down if only for a little while.

Oh, Hey!

Over the past month has been very crazy in the Green household. With a new work location for me, computer dying on us TWICE, Figuring out a new computer, Christmas, and everything in-between blogging has been one of the last things on my mind. Now things have settled all I want to do is sit down and write a post, so I have! A whole weeks worth of posts to get me ready to wake up and press publish, so I will start my new post with tomorrow's link up with her trend of the week....emerald green! Thanks for everyone who reads my blog and for stopping by!

A Little 5k and a Whole Lotta Fun

Have you ever come across the ads for the runs where you can play in the mud or throw chalk/paint at one another? I've seen them pop up everywhere in the past year and I have been "dying" to try them! For my husband's birthday we decided to give it a shot, he really didn't want to but it made me excited about running so he went with it! (He is a runner and I am not unless forced)

After running I decided that maybe people are underestimating how awesome these are!

At the beginning they give you a packet of chalk to throw while you run, I got a blue one and pouted so my husband snagged me a pink one! We started off with throwing the whole pink and half his blue just at each other.
The very first shot....the camera missed my super fancy jump.
Post Zach hitting me, please notice the innocent bystanders.

 So after our mini war, we finally got to start the race. Most people walk, but I'm very competitive and had to sprint. About five minutes in we both got a little bored and decided we were going to start tagging people. We would run and chalk our hands and then pat people on the back telling what a good job they were doing leaving behind blue handprints. :) It's the little things in life. 

They also had large checkpoints where  people would throw chalk at you...
Post first pink checkpoint.

Blue Checkpoint people were very friendly

Green checkpoint people....

they were very violent with the green chalk. Yuck!

We finished!

After the race they had a stage where they were giving away tons of goodies and then...
They had a chalk party! I'm somewhere in this, Zach decided to try and capture the moment but lost me in it for a split second.

Highly recommended to take part in such an event!

You might have to bleach your shoes and clothes afterwards.
