30 for 30: Day 27 & Day 28

Day 27

above: What I wore on my trip home. I ALMOST missed my connecting flight in Chicago, even after sprinting through the terminal, wearing a backpack and pushing another carry on bag. That was fun. Not. But, I made it! And I made it home to my sweet husband and cute pups. Another successful family reunion completed :)

Day 28

this is me reacting to being told to stop posing with bent legs

the beginning of 200 cookies we (I) made for a friend's shower this weekend. I dreamt of cookies & cookie cutters that night...I'll be posting what I wore to that tomorrow! 
Days 27 & 28 complete! This challenge is just about wrapped up - woohoo! I'm so excited to have use of my entire closet again (I did some shopping and can't wait to wear my new items!). I'll be posting a recap of this challenge in the next few days, so, if you're interested, keep your eyes open for that ;)

30 for 30: Day 25 & Day 26

Day 25

humidity! love it! NOT. do you SEE the lion's mane that is supposed to be my hair??

that's a flower/weed thing, but it was pretty, so into the line up it went
 Day 26
me & Dad hanging at the pool. I got a wee bit too much sun...

Master of the Grill. just kidding

Wait. Is that the same shirt I wore the day before? 



Let me explain. I had been wearing a different shirt and was helping make dinner. Some of dinner (possibly the baked beans) ended up on my WHITE shirt, so I had to make a switch before documenting this outfit for the entire internet to see. But my shorts and hair are different, so, points for that?

PS - my sister in law got FIRST in her cutting competition! So proud of her!!!

30 for 30: Day 23 & Day 24

Day 23

So, the first night of our trip, most of my extended family was at dinner. Then my sweet Dad announced to everyone that I have a blog. I turned bright red and mumbled a description to the whole table about how it's "about my clothes, and what I wear..." Shortly after, we headed outside to take my outfit pictures. My brother & uncles knocked on the windows since they could see us, and this is me waving back. Cue red face.

hamming it up for my photographer for the week: my Dad. we're  besties. true story.

So, my Dad spilled the beans on my blog. Not that it was a big secret, but it's awkward to just tell people you know and love "So, I write things on the internet and post pictures of myself." So I guess I'm glad my Dad just blurted it out to everyone - I gained AT LEAST 3 new readers. Hi family!!!

Day 24

that is a fish. jumping. RIGHT BEHIND ME.

our view for the week. I love my mountains but this is nice, too :)

me & Dad

I taught him how to pose like a sorority girl: skinny arm & head tilt. However, he didn't get the memo to hold his drink out of the time?

this is me wearing my brother's size 14 flip flops. I get a kick out of it...

A few more tidbits about my family reunion trip are headed your way, and of course, the rest of the my 30 for 30 challenge. I'm not too original with what's left, but packing everything in a carry-on really limited my options. #firstworldproblems

30 for 30: Day 21 & Day 22

Day 21

The above combination was less than flattering, so only a few pictures to share...

Day 22

I wore this get-up to do a wee bit of shopping. I ran some errands, then scored some deals at Old Navy using my $20 Super Cash. It was burning a hole in my pocket, so of course I had to make a stop...and come home with some new items...they'll be making an appearance here soon!

My sister-in-law is competing in her first horse show today! She cuts horses - she picks a cow out of the herd and keeps them out using her horse. Did I explain that right, KB? My youngest cousin asked her "Why do you talk like a cowgirl?" Because she is one! Good luck today!! Proud of you. Sis. :)
