Happy NYE

Pictures taken by Matt M.

When:  Wednesday, December 28, 2011

What:  Cowl neck sweater - Daisy Fuentes; Jeans - Sonoma; Booties - Nine West; Earrings - Old so I don't remember...

Where:  Work and then home to clean.  Matt and I scrubbed the house down.  I probably should have changed my clothes to be a bit more comfortable but I didn't.

Cowl necks are some of my favorite looks.  I own two cowl neck sweaters (one lone sleeve, the other short sleeve) and they usually get plenty of wear.  Did you notice?  I'm also wearing one of my new pairs of glasses!  Did you notice the other thing?  I'm in our basement.  We have a drum set!  That's Matt's drum set.  He is quite the musician lover and quite the drummer too! 

Hey!  Look at that!  I'm wearing the Target hounds tooth coat that was on my Christmas wish list!  Matt really did spoil me this year.  He gave me many things from my wish list, Indian cooking classes (I am so excited!) and an awesome photo editor program that I still have no idea how to use.

The coat has this great stitching of grey, black, and brown.  Perfect to go with just about any look!  My face looks kind of patchy in these pictures.  I'm pretty sure it's because I took them after we were finished cleaning.  I don't know why I waited till after I was a hot mess and no longer fresh.  I think it was just because I came home from work and wanted to get the cleaning done ASAP!

So today is the last day of 2011.  2011 was quite the year for me!  I graduated college (finally), turned 30, got married, and became a licensed RN!  Oh - and I started this little blog that I have enjoyed very much!  Speaking of little blog...  I won the "Tell Me About Yourself Award" from style blog oomph.  If you have never been to her blog, GO THERE NOW!  She is a sexy mom that knows how to rock an awesome look!  I especially lust over her ability to accessorize, something I lack the ability to do most days.  So over the next few days I am going to be putting together a list of things that people may not know about me to celebrate my award!  Heehee - that sure made my day!

I hope you all have a wonderful and safe night tonight!  I appreciate all the comments and feedback from you!  I look forward to even more in 2012!
