Naughty or Nice! & a dog story

Hey everyone! I have been MIA for a while now. I have been on here, but more just reading others blogs. I guess I have been kind of lazy, whoops!I think since I have been out of school for this semester, I have been on a more relaxing mode, and been hanging out with family and friends and have not been too inspired to write up a blog post :( .

I have pretty much gotten all my Christmas Shopping done, just need to pick up a few more things with Michael early this week, and I will be all done! Have you finished all of your Christmas Shopping?

Since the last time I blogged I have bought quite a few things ( clothes ) so I am going to try to share all that I have gotten, and I will probably forget something.. and a few things a picked up for some of my friends/family.

But first, here is a picture of Michael and I ( with one of our dogs, Scout, before we headed out to the first family Christmas party )
                                                               Michael, Scout and I
and I couldn't just leave me other furbabie out so....
                                                            Here are the 4 of us :) haha

OKAY! Now, on to what I have purchased recently. Can I get a wohoo!?!

I purchased this Velveteen Contrast Dress from F21. I LOVE this! It does seem shorter on the model, but I am on the shorter side, so I feel that it does not look as short on me. I think this dress is so cute and different, I just loveeee it! You can purchase it here!

Next up, I purchased this Zippered Slinky Knit Dress from F21. I recently wore this to the first family Christmas Party that we went to last night ( from the pictures above) and I love it. it is a more casual fabric but it is so comfy and I think you can dress it up or down. You can purchase it here!

I have NOT purchased this dress, but, I love it! I think it is a perfect dress for the Holiday Season. Love it! I just had to share with you! You can purchase it here!

I also just purchased the peachy colored top AND the grey cardigan in this picture. I happened to buy them both and just when looking online realized they were pictures together. I love them!! I am really loving LC's clothing line at Kohls, I really love her style and I love what she has put out there so far!

I also just purchased this lovely number. I love it! and the best part, not only was it on sale it was now 70% off PLUS the 30% off the total coupon I had, I am so happy with it!

LOVE this candle! What are some of your favorite candles?? This candle smells really good, I just wish it had a little bit of a stronger smell, but yummm! I actually got one for me and one for one of Michaels grandmas.

How is your Christmas shopping going??

On another note, this is super random, but, I have showed pictures of both of my furbabies, Scout & Toby on here before. In my neighborhood, there is a missing Yorkie. ( Which is what Scout is ) Anyways, This man who lives in Austin with his wife and kids is here living with his mom for work, or something like that, anyways, somehow or another the Yorkie got out and is missing. There are a few Yorkies in this neighborhood that I know of. We live around the lake, which there is a path all around it where people walk around or what not and the other day I was sitting downstairs and had the door cracked so the dogs could go in and out as they please. I noticed they were barking at something and thought I had seen someone out there, so, I stuck my head out and there is this lady. The first thing she says is, " That is my dog!" and I told her that that was not her dog. she asked if it was mine, and I told her that yes, he was. After that she kind of looked at me like she thought I was lying and she left and returned to walking around the lake looking. Later, we called them and we talked to her son, who the dog belongs to, and told him what happened and he said tha his mom had called him and told him about that and that he told her that there are other people who have yorkies and what not. So, today, my mother and I are walking around the lake witht he dogs and as we go by the front of the neighborhood, the lady just happens to pull in at the same time as we walk by and she drives SUPER slow and is staring all the way down the street and then stops at the stop sign for a long time then goes around the way to the other side of the lake and goes to the cul de sac and is basically watching us. It makes me a little irritated that she is so persistant that she thinks that my Scouty is her sons dog. I am almost feeling uncomfortable because she seems to really think he is. Not to mention, my mother and I went looking for their dog yesterday around the neighborhood also. I have found 2 or 3 other dogs in our neighborhood and returned them. Believe me, I love dogs, but I love to find their owners. I am just not quite sure what to do. I mean I feel like I shouldn't feel like this because he is clearly my dog but on the other hand I wish she would realize it isnt the dog they are looing for.

sorry for that long rant but I just had to get if off my chest. I guess it was just kind of bugging me!

Catching up!

Hey Everyone! Wow, it has been a while since my last post. Things are just now finally settling down. My last official day of class for this semester is tomorrow! Wohoo! But, I still have one test I NEED to get in order to take my Courtroom class next semester, so I'm a little stressed over that. Hopefully I will be able to get it tomorrow, BUT, if I don't , Monday and Tuesday they are testing us, so I have those days, but it would be so much less stressful to get it tomorrow! fingers crossed!   

Let's see other than school, we had Thanksgiving break, which I spent Thanksgiving with my family and throughout the week we also spent time with Michael's Grandma. MMM she made us dinner one night and had us over along with his cousin and his girlfriend, and it was amazing, and I have to mention the corn she made was AWESOME! I don't even know what it is called but it was not just regular corn, I will have to get the recipe and share it will you' all! We also went Black Friday shopping with the whole gang ( Michael, I, Kelly, Megan, Kyle & Tori ) It actually wasn't that bad! We were all just super tired after because we had only gotten about 1 1/2 hours of sleep. But we had fun :)

I Can't believe it is DECEMBER already!!!! But I LOVE LOVE LOVE this time of the year! We put our Christmas tree up and all of our outside lights up and all that, which hopefully I will take pictures of tonight so I can show ya'll!

Well I really have no pictures to share so It's just a bunch of me rambling! I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. This week has gone by SO fast!

Needing some prayers!

This morning I learned of some very sad news. One of my long time friends brother went missing. His parents reported him missing last night around 5p.m. They found his truck abandoned in a shopping center and are looking for him still. They interviewed a boy who said that he thinks Josh might have been assaulted and thrown in a field somewhere.. we have no confirmed news yet but my brother, who goes to school with him, as well as my step dad who is searching for him right now have both heard that they found the body but it is not confirmed yet so they are still looking.
It is so unfair how things like this happen. I pray that somehow he will return safely home. I just ask that you keep his family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.

Lazzzzzy :)

Hello my little love bugs! ( haha ) Don't ask why I just called ya'll love bugs- I always seem to come up with some nick names for everyone. :) Anyways! I hope everyone is have a great week so far! So, I haven't really been feeling inspired lately, hints my absense of blog posts. I really don't have anything planned for today and I'm still not feeling up to it.. I think it's because I am have stressing with school lately ( I only have 10 official school days left of this semester and I have to get two of my 140's tests... talk about stress! ) so I have been stressed and by the time I get home, snack, play with my furbabies, and maybe practice I am ready for bed!

Maybe tomorrow I will have a more interesting post. any ideas on what to post about? I am going to try to do a OOTD tomorrow, but we will see how that turns out!

Day 7 & I need your opinions!

Hey everyone! I hope everyone is having a great week so far- tomorrow is Friday-WOHOO! I don't know about y'all, but this week sure has gone by pretty fast! I only have 3 more weeks of school left for this semster-ah! I have been feeling not good on and off all this week. ugh. Not to mention that the weather here in Houston has been rainy and yucky. boo! I think it is going to start cooling down, so that is a plus!

Anyways the blog challenge day 7 is something that I am OCD about. I could probably list a few things but I will just go with the first thing that pops into my head.. which is WASHING YOUR HANDS!
I am way OCD about not only myself, but others washing their hands. I constantly find myself getting on to some of my family members about washing their hands before touching anything to make dinner, or anything. I think that is my biggest thing- washing their hands before touching any food or making dinner. I just find it super gross when people don't! :)

What are you OCD about?

On to another note, I did not even dress cute today to be honest so no outfit of the day, sorry! Maybe tommorrow! But, I have been looking online on F21, and saw this sweater and I am not sure if I like it or not, I wanted to know your opinion!
What do you think of this sweater?? like? or not?

On a side note- Michael ( my BF ) He is an architecture student and out of his school a handful of student get picked to travel to Italy- and MICHAEL GOT CHOSEN! WOHOO! We are very excited for him! He very much deserves it! :)

Well, that is it for tonight! I am watching my show ( Greys Anatomy ) love it! I hope you all have a wonderful friday!

xoxo, Jennifer

p.s. if you were wondering-yes, I did change my blog name.. I am trying to find something catchy and simple. I'm kind of liking this one!

Day 5: My Pets :)

Hey everyone! I hope everyone had a great weekend! Is it just me or has this weekend just flown by???!? My weekend was a pretty relaxing one, just stayed home and hung out with the family and my furbabies.. which is what this next post is about!

Todays blog challenge is to talk about your pets. I have to wonderful boys-Scout and Toby.

This is my first baby, Scout. This is a picture of the very first day that we brought him home. Before we got Scout we hadn't had any dogs in a while- my mom didn't want to get attached again-so, I left it alone for a while. I would get on kicks every now and then and finally one day I was talking to Michael ( my BF ) and he decided that he was going to get me a Yorkie, and I found Scout, we went and saw him, and the rest is history. We got scout May 2008, right before I was graduating highschool, so he is about 2 1/2 years old now.  Below is a more recent picture of my little Scouty Wouty :)

                                                         Scout driving with his daddy
                                              This is Scout after one of his haircuts :)

And, I can't forget my other baby. About a year later my mom was looking on the local shelter website and spotted a puppy on their, told my step-dad to go look, then she went to go look and she could NOT leave him there. That is the day that we welcomed little Toby :) Below is a picture of the day that we brought him home. He was about a month or two old when we got him, they could only estimate because he was abandoned.

                                                     Baby Toby Eating
                                                    Baby Toby under the table
                                           Both of the boys together!

These two pups are the best! It is such a joy to come home to them and they love their daddy so much! It doesnt matter if he is gone a couple hours or a couple days, they are still just as excited when he is here! I just love them :)
I do have some picture from Halloween of them, but I don't think I have them uploaded yet, maybe I'll remember on another post!

Day 4: Something I am looking forward to

Hey everyone! I hope everyone had a great friday, and is having a wonderful saturday so far! I am soo sorry I didn't post a blog yesterday, I was out all day and by the time I got back home, I was exhausted!

Yesterday, I went with Michael ( my BF ) and his friend from school- we went to the Holocaust Musuem and the Fine Arts Musuem. The Holocaust musuem was very interesting, sad- I am not a history person but I have always had an interest in the Holocaust, I think it is just amazing how cruel the people were to the Jewish. The Fine Arts Musuem was definately nice, but, it is not my cup of tea, I just don't find interest in that kind of stuff. It was a long day!

Anways.. on to todays Blog Challenge topic ( Something I am looking forward to ) . I am looking forward to a lot but to keep it short, I will only list a few things.

I am looking forward to..
 Thanksgiving!!!     My mom makes THE BEST turkey and dressing! YUM! I can not wait !!!
And this is a oicture of us down camping with Michaels family for Thanksgiving. ( a few years ago )

I am looking forward to....

Christmas! I absolutely love everything about Christmas. I love all the lights, festivites, family get togethers and celebrating the true meaning of Christmas!

I could list a lot more things I am looking forward to, but, I will leave it at that!

Day 3: Your Dream House

Hey everyone! I hope everyone is having a fabulous Thursday! Tommorrow is Friday-Can I get a WOHOO!!??!!

Todays blog challenge is a picture of my dream house. This is kind of hard. BUTTT I have managed to find a few picture that are somewhat along the lines of what my BF and I's house might be like someday.

Now, I have got to tell you, my BF ( Michael ) he is a soon to be Architect, one day. He has a very modern and creative mind. We obviously plan to move into a " normal " house first, but, plan to have our own built one day. And here are a few that are somewhat along the lines of the "moderny-architect" mind :)  I think these are absolutely beautiful I think.Enjoy!

On another note, I did some shopping today. unfortunately it is getting late so I will have to post pictures of what I got another day. I hope everyone is having a great week.

What is your dream house like??

Day 2: A picture from somewhere you have been

Hey everyone! Today is Day 2 of my 30 Day Blog Challenge! Today has been a cold & rainy day here in Texas. Yuck. I don't mind the cold as much as long as I wear the right clothing BUT with it also being wet-not so good! Today was a very hard day for me, but more on that for another post!

How has the weather been where You live??

So, Today is a picture from somewhere I have been.....
I didn't really take any awesome picture while I was there so this will have to do. Meet the Bahamas! Last Christmas, I went on a cruise to the Bahamas with Michael ( my BF ) and his family. His parents' gift to each of them when they graduate college, is a trip to basically anywhere they want to go, so we all went. It was SO much fun, and absolutely beautiful!!! We drove to Florida the day after Christmas and left I believe on the 27th until around January 3. If you have not been on a cruise, I advise you to! I LOVED it! This particular Island was CoCocay.(?)   

Have you traveled anywhere where you really enjoyed?

Day 1: 30 Day Blog Challenge

I have decided that I would jump on board and try the " 30 Day Blog Challenge ". I somehow never feel inspired to write, and what I do, it never comes out as planned, but- I thought I would give it a try. Why not? I will most likely be trying to incorporate other topics in each blog challenge post, we shall see!

Day 1: " A Photo of yourself and a description of how your day was "

This is ME! My name is Jennifer. Born and raised in the Lovely state of Texas-I love it here! I am a 20 year old Court Reporting Student. I am here to share you y'all my daily life happenings-including school, fashion, love, family & everything inbetween!

Today is Tuesday-11/02/10   Can you believe that it is already NOVEMBER!!??!!  In the moment is seems like live can go by slow but I am amazed at how fast time flies by! This part of the year is my FAVORITE part of the year. I love Thanksgiving and Christmas. Maybe it's just me being naive-but, I feel like this time of year is just so much more " happier " Anyways! Today I had school. Nothing too interesting. After that I came home and cleaned my closet/room and am spending some time with my boys ( my two dogs-Scout & Toby-whom I will share pictures with ya'll in another post. ) After this post I am going to relax a little and maybe-just maybe try to make myself practice on my steno machine for school. 

I hope ya'll are having an awesome Tuesday! I hope everyone went out and voted today!

What is your favorite time of the year?

I am thinking I am also going to start a formspring page eventually. Let me know what you think!
