Top 2 Tuesday! Amazingness!

So Top 2 Tuesday!

This week it is Top 2 Indulgences...

So So Super Tough...
Biting my nails begins NOW!!!Ok but getting down to business..

Shoes!!!! I love them, all of them. Heels, wedges, tennis shoes, running shoes, pumps, and yes those beloved UGGs, and no So
uthern girl could live without her cowboy boots! So my latest purchase you may ask... well this picture is worth a thousand words in my opinion plus I'll add my two future purchases!

So my friend and I found these darling shoes $60 off of what they sell for so of course we yelled amazing I got this pair and she got the pair that I am about to post that I want next!

Absolute love them! I needed the black multi first for a wedding coming up that this will be my little splash of style and I can't wait to wear them!!! And next for winter I need to add another pair of UGGS to the closet with these cute little babies!


Super Cute/Comfy Undies!

Now this may sound crazy but my dad always told my mom to buy herself good undies that made her feel good and lasted longer than others and told her to raise her daughters that way! Well mom and dad I thank you beca
use now Victoria's Secret loves to see me come in there store! No I don't go overboard but I don't run out for a while and I always shop whenever I have discount coupons so I stock up! But everything there makes me feel so sexy even if it's just a t-shirt bra and I love that feeling!

Don't get me wrong I could take out stock in their sweats and yoga pants too!

I loved doing this so much this week it got my mind off this crazy school week and crazy weekend ahead if just for a second. In December I'll have my Associates and ready to go elsewhere for my Bachelor degree and I can't wait! I'll try to get better at this I am now in the process of establishing a routine so it should be going smooth within the next week.

Can't wait to read more Top 2's this week!

The past few days in pictures!

So as I posted a few days ago and we have been taking pictures like crazy! Silly pictures, artistic pictures, sunsets, boats, anything and everything so I figured I"d share just a few for now. Still learning how to use it and can't wait to get better. What do ya'll think?

In the city park its a cute little view finder but my zoom works better!

J in the State Park doesn't he look handsome?

Sunset with a bit of the lighthouse sorta artistic.

Amazing sunset!

Adorable abandoned sandcastle just had to take a picture.

I may think they are dirty but I just had to get the picture.

No need trying to control my hair on the break wall its pointless but this was an amazing night and I'm so thankful that someone was nice enough to take our picture together!

Friday Fill-In I'm Back!

1. What is something you wished you’d learned to do earlier in life?

Cook, because I can only cook a few things and a few more with the help of Hamburger Helper so I'm tired of the same things over and over. Any advice ladies?

2. What is your biggest pet peeve with the military?

The uncertainty of scheduling. We had a big weekend trip planned about two weeks ago that got ruined. Yes I understand and no I'm not mad about it at all I respect when duty calls its just I hate bailing on people and sometimes they don't understand why because they don't live this lifestyle!

3. What tourist attraction near you have you never seen?

Well up here Michigan Adventures, but back home... I think I've seen them all except the things in the mountains... my family has never taken vacations to the mountains!

4. What are you avoiding doing right now?

Cleaning because I'm just too darn excited about going to get my camera but at least the dishes are halfway done before I made this post but soon I'll get back to it all!

5. Wine, beer or liquor?

Well this gets complicated. I used to like only liquor make me a Sex on the Beach and I was a happy lady all night long until I met my dear friend CA. Her dad created this craft brew and it is simply amazing! It is so smooth and crisp and no bitter after taste (yeah that taste that used to make me puke does not exists in this beer SWEET!) So yes now I can handle liquor and only and I mean only Those Guys Beer! If your curious that is the name of the beer!

TODAY is the DAY!!!!

So today I finally am going to get my camera and I cannot wait. (If you couldn't tell by the title!) As soon as J gets off work we are grabbing my friend and heading to the next town over and getting that beautiful sweet baby of mine to be! Of course tonight I already have an event to take pictures of as well so I really can't complain it all works out for the best! Can't wait to post some pictures but I will warn you that at first they will look rough but I am sure it will get better with time and practice. So I will update more tomorrow!

Squealing in excitement,

Camera Buying Craziness

So as some of you know we have been looking at buying a bigger and better quality camera. Well we finally have incentive to buy one because a friend gave us this coupon for $200 off sounds like a plan right? Well it is until you get there and it only takes $50 off. You just like me are wondering why I assume. It seems that this whole camera deal is a package deal and will be until the 14th of the month. One problem, the coupon expires on the 12th. So you're thinking $50 off what price. Well working the package deal discount and the $50 off it comes to $150 off which if 50 shy of what we would like it to be. So the hard thing is deciding what to do if we want we can buy it Friday or Saturday at the $150 off price or wait until Sunday to see if they discount it more or to see if the $200 off might take affect. My one concern is that what if it is more expensive and in the coupon there is some little detail that I haven't seen (and I have read the small print over and over more than 50 times at least.) I love love love this camera, bag, tripod, and extra lens set! All we have to add is another SD card and a few filters and I'm set to be taking some amazing pictures I have no doubt after all the spread sheets I've made we are no doubt set and happy with our decision but how can I know I am getting the best deal? You have to understand I'm not one to spend a ton of money on anything and this is a very expensive purchase I love it and would love to have it but I want the best deal for this amazing gift for J and me. Any advice would be welcome now to go nap again since I had a horrible nights sleep because today begins the day that we start packing my best friend to move an hour and a half away from me... SAD DAY!!!

Adding on to today I'm doing a new blog hop called Welcome Wednesday! It's over at Take It From Me so go check it out join and follow some new lovely bloggers it's a great way to meet new people!

Dreaming of snapshots,

So with school starting soon, trying to fix the schedule, editing pictures, buying books, and trying to stay strong for the man. Lets just say its been a rough few weeks at work. I'm going crazy! I want more time with him and it seems that won't happen for a while with a friends wedding coming up and him soon leaving for class as well as me when will we settle down? I feel like I'm going stir house crazy so I've been staying away from here but this is the one place that I created for myself to come vent. Lucky for me I have amazing friends with great taste in purses yes my friend gave me two practically new Jessica Simpson purses and a GUESS wallet... retail therapy who needs that? And we had a beer promotion to work which was a ton of fun! Her family created this brew and it is amazing (take it from me I hate beer but I can't get enough of this stuff and no I do not mean that in an alcoholic way it just isn't gross and makes tabs cheaper than my normal at bars.) So we had a great weekend and finally what the crew has been working so hard on is over so maybe he can rest a little better and we can spend our last few days together at least until the end of the month comes along. Also I feel like I have become some frugalista ( I get that from my mama!) I have been signing up for free coupons and trying to find sales everywhere I go to make the dollar stretch and the one thing I'm having a hard time with you ask. Finding an amazing camera, I really want to improve and learn this skill so that I can document things throughout our life together and also it makes for some great wall art I believe at a much lower price in the long run! I guess I just need to hold my head up, be prepared for all the changes coming our way, and work to be a better blogger because thats really why I created this blog in the first place! To read how other people get through and connect with people and there are so many great people out in blogland! Well that is all for today and I am almost done with the completed edits of my D.C. trip have I got the suspense up yet?

Off to working,
