2015, Here We Go


Hello there beauties! If you are like me than you got home today pretty excited that you survived the first working day of 2015! This Monday was truly like none other I had encountered since last year at the same time. Everything I planned to get done was accomplished, yet I still spent the last five minutes of my work day planning for tomorrow as I always tend to do. As I type this post, I am waiting for some french green beans to warm on the stove to have with my baked salmon. I usually tend to let my body hibernate from Thanksgiving to January...just trying to maintain my preferred weight through the colder months. But, this time around its different...as in less than 60 days, we will leave for Punta Cana to celebrate our first wedding anniversary on the white sandy beaches of the Caribbean. I have to be in tip top toned shape!

I am glad that everyone loved my December 2014 photo palooza. It seemed like the ideal way to say goodbye to 2014! Now, I have some new photos to share from the New Year and the days thereafter. 



I had my gel mani done again on NYE and I went back square (only because I broke two of my nails the day before I was going to get my nails done). Don't know the name of this color since my nail salon carries hundreds of colors and brands I have never even heard of! 


Been loving doing my perm rods! I even did my rod set again for babe's birthday dinner!
Lipstick / Wet n Wild Ferguson Crest Cabernet
Foundation / Black Opal Foundation Stick (holy grail! hands up & down!)


I just want to be me. I want to be free. 


Babe & I at the Big D NYE Celebration! 


It was super cold and although I was all bundled up...I still got sick when it rained on us! It was quite fun at the time!


My planner and journal...all ready for 2015!


NYE recap! Hello 2015!


My nails, which I am loving, with a very rainy day! It rained all New Year's Day!


Self-explanatory! Cant wait to see what we accomplish! 


New Year, New Inspiration. 


Half way through detangling my first rod set to preparing for washing and setting again!


My new rod set! Sharing this so that you can see the size perm rods I use! I also ended up sitting under the dryer to set these rods since it was 35 degrees outside on babe's actual birthday! I didn't want to make my cold any worse! I used the Nairobi Wrapp-It Shine Foaming Lotion to achieve this look and shine!

Outfit of the night (the dress is currently unavailable at Nordstrom & French Connection)! I love all things sparkly! I was deciding between this dress & another sparkly one. Saving the other one for Valentine's Day so stay tuned if you haven't already seen it on Twitter. I ended up wearing it with tights because it was cold & rainy the night we went to dinner. But, you can also wear it without tights. 





Team US before we left for dinner! Happy Birthday Babe! I love you more than anything! Thank you for being my rock today and always. Let us continue to keep God first and the rest will seem easy! 


Outfit of the Night with my favorite coat of the moment! Hubby loves it too! He calls me 'fancy' when I wear it. 


Succesful birthday celebration at Al Biernat's


Some new coffee table books arrived this weekend from Amazon! I couldn't be happier! 


Setting out my clothes for each morning keeps me motivated! :)


At brunch on Saturday. We love Egg and I Restaurant in Dallas! So yummy! 


My new kicks babe got for me! That I am officially obsessed with! No worries! They are linked below!

And the not so exciting day of being in my PJs all day long! Trust me, it wasn't fun! But I have to get back to 100% health!
