I have been hinting at some news for a while now....
Zach and I have decided to get hitched!
I am so very excited and he seriously proposed in the cutest way ever. I nearly exploded. No joke.
Our first date was under this big tree in a park. When we sat under it he started saying something about a branch looking like a lion and I had no idea what the hell he was talking about, so he put his arm around me to "show" me where to look. To this day I have no idea if the branches actually resembled a lion or not. Anyways, he took me antiquing last Saturday and we ended up back under "our tree". We have been talking a lot about marriage this last year and we knew we wanted to tie the knot in October, but nothing was official yet. I knew it was coming, but I just didn't know when. Zach brought a quilt my Granny had made and we laid for a while under the tree and talked. It was an absolutely gorgeous day and we ended up dozing off. Of course I had to pee like a madwoman when I woke up (SO ROMANTIC, I KNOW.) and I walked off to find a bathroom. When I came back we sat propped up against the tree and he put his arm around me. I laughed and asked something along the lines of, "oh no lions this time?". He laughed too and pointed to a nearby branch and asked, "what do you see in those branches?" "Uhhh... a branch." He pointed to some more, "how about those?" "Still branches." Then he pointed above us, "what about those?" There was a ring box hanging above my head! Inside the box was the most beautiful opal ring I have ever seen in my life. I am now a happily engaged woman... and I can't wait to blow this blog up with wedding planning!
Hope you all had a great Monday!

Last Friday was seriously the best day ever! At 3 a.m. we got the call that Kayla's water had broke and off to the hospital she went. I have never been so excited in my entire life...
Corley Rose is absolutely perfect. I am so in love I can't stand it... I could kiss her chubby cheeks all day! It is crazy how much she has changed since she was born already. She hardly even looks like these pictures anymore.
I mean, look! Is that even the same baby? Haha. I am one proud Aunt Emy.
Hope you all are having a great week!

Look how happy I am in the above picture. That was taken last April... I worked as a rehab tech in a nursing home and had all the free time in the world.
Then I decided, hey, I am gonna go to school.
Which is why I am writing this blog post. A few months ago, during a random surge of inspiration, I made this list of all my plans for the New Year. I had my mind made up that I was going to do an outfit post every week among a dozen other really awesome things. I was excited and feisty. Guess what I am now? Tired. I am very tired.
Honestly, I barely change out of my black smock from school. My cute outfit days are becoming few and far between... and I am afraid it is going to be this way until October. Between being on my feet all day at school with rude clients and then going straight into GameStop some days to deal with even more rude people I am spent. I don't feel like planning blog posts. I don't feel like walking out to the woods behind my house for outfit pics.
This blog will never be an obligation. I never want to get tired of blogging because it feels like just one more thing I have to do. This is my happy place. I am not trying to sound mean or bitter. I am quite the opposite... I LOVE blogging. I love the people I have met. I love getting on here and finding people that inspire me and writing about whatever pops into my little head. I love putting together the occasional hair tutorial makeup looks, but I am not going to stress over it.
Some days I will post, some days I will not, and that's okay. While my life is so very stressful right now, there are some absolutely wonderful things happening (which are contributing somewhat to my stress, but in an awesome way!) and I CAN'T WAIT to post about them. Y'all don't even know. I am about to bubble over I am so excited.
I can't wait until I have time to do what I love again, but until then this is the way things will go over here for a while. Thank you to all my readers and those who I follow here in blogland... you guys are amazing and I am lucky to be surrounded by such amazing people.

1. Murnie constantly pokes his tongue out and I love it... also, look how chunky he is!
2. Another picture of baby boy. I can't help it though. He is getting his claws removed tomorrow (I have no choice. He keeps getting them caught in everything and his paws are always bloody.) I am uper worried about him. I don't know how I will sleep without him on my legs.
3. Found this while grocery shopping. I was very attached to my great-grandfather who passed away when I was seven. He was constantly on the search for peanut butter with oil at the top, which grossed me out as a kid. This is the first time I have actually seen it. In a time in my life that is so stressful, I definitely needed the smile.
4. Making over mannequins!
5. FINALLY got a vanity table to put all my makeup in. No more sitting on the floor to put on my face!
6. Look at Zach's eyelashes! I am so jealous.
7. Spider in the bathroom sink... Nope. Nope. Nope. I washed my face in the kitchen.
