Happy Thanksgiving

The Hubs and I wishin everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Wow Turkey day is already here...

Wow I can not believe that it is Thanksgiving tomorrow!! Seriously, this year has just flew by!! Today I've done some early Christmas shopping, Thanksgiving food shopping(if you consider Jello food), and went and got the Hubs his birthday gift he's been wanting. Which by the way his birthday was yesterday and I didn't get a post in because I was spending all my time with him, but Happy Birthday again babe! I love you tons!!

This is my outfit I threw on this morning. I was going for the comfy look again. I'm wearing this new sweatshirt thing, and the front pocket is lace and has sequence ALL OVER IT!! Happy moment, lol! I couldn't resist it when I went to Kohls! 

Did you guys notice something weird about this picture...its the end of November and there isn't any snow on the ground :( I've been waiting for that white fluffy stuff to cover the ground so it could feel more like Thanksgiving. But guess I'll just have to do without with snow. Oh ps I stepped in a Boomer Buddy aka dog poo and kinda was bummed lol

Well I'm off to go cut the flowers down before the snow falls. I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks everyone for your input!

Today I wore the dress I had asked everyone's opinion on how to wear it. I think the outfit turned out awesome, and after trying half my closet on with the dress I think the white jacket looks the best. I do have to say that this is the first time I have felt comfortable wearing this dress, which makes me feel super happy!
Thanks again everyone!!

A little lunch and a little shopping

Today I went to lunch with a couple of friends. The whole goal was to go to the new H&M here in Salt Lake City, but holy moly it was ridiculously busy. You couldn't even walk around, so me and a friend left and went to Nordstrom and I bought a new phone cover. There was a Marc by Marc Jacobs purse there but I couldn't decide.

Thanks Anne for having a birthday lets do it again soon!!!

Camera Phone Special

I only say that because I don't have a super rad iPhone...so my pictures aren't as good quality. Anyways, I know I promised some fashion this week but then I woke up this morning and thought to myself...why should I get ready when I just have to go back to bed at 2pm? I work a graveyard tonight and I always try to get at least 3 hrs of sleep before I go in at 7. Ps its noon right now. So I hurried and put some clothes on and took a quick camera phone picture! Enjoy!

I'm wearing a awesome button up from Kohls and a black sweater from Eddie Bauers. Can't see my jeans but just imagine some dark boot cut True Religions lol

And yes I'm wearing glasses...and yes they are prescription, but its not strong enough for me to get contacts.

Ps I wasn't a procrastinator and wrote a paper and turned it in 5 days early...go me! Lol

Bridal Shower Decor

This is what I have been working on all day today. I know its another decor thing and has nothing to do with fashion but I promise Ill come back to fashion. I made the table runner, the soup tags, and did the simple decorations. The colors of the wedding are obviously yellow and gray, and at first I hated them. But after looking at Pinterest all day long I have learned to love it.
Tomorrow is a work day, so a post is less likely. But ill be back on Thursday for sure.
Thanks for reading and sorry about the bummer post yesterday.


Wow I would have to say that this post might be a downer, so if you're lookin' for an upbeat happy post you might want to push the back button.

Well this past week was kinda a huge bummer. It started off with Monday(way to start the week right...)

Monday we found out that we weren't going to be able to build our duplex on the lot we were planning on. The reason being was because the people in the neighborhood we were going to be building in were already complaining about it.  Feeling were hurt, I'm not going to lie! It felt as if they didn't want me in their community, they didn't want me to grow up and have a family, they didn't want to start my investment. I know I'm probably taking this more personal than I should be seriously thats how I felt.  Plus one thing I don't understand is there are 13 duplexes within a 3 block radius of the property, how is one more going to change the neighborhood? So guess we will have to find another property...

Then Thursday I went to lunch with some coworkers then we went shopping at Forever21 which I haven't been to for months and was super excited to do some shopping. Well during shopping I got really sick and had to run home. Big bummer, no shopping, no enjoying coworkers, and no going anywhere after that. Which means I missed my moms birthday dinner :( I felt horrible.

Friday I felt much better, I think it might have been the food I ate. But then I started getting a cold. And let me tell you, this cold has been kicking my butt since Friday. I'm currently sitting in bed sick with nasal congestion that is the worst I've ever experienced. So I called in sick today from work...ps I HATE doing that! I feel so irresponsible, but I really need to get better before I continue on with my week.

Ok that's it. I'm done complaining. And I'm sorry that I haven't been a very blog friendly person, hopefully I'll feel better so I will get ready in the morning and get back to normal life.

DIY Ideas

First of all I'd like to say Happy Birthday to my mom! I hope she has an awesome day today and I love you!

Sorry for the lack of outfit posts this week, I have been super busy and now feel like I'm coming down with a cold :( So today I figured I'd show you one of my DIY ideas I found on Pinterest! And can't wait to try it out. I'll let you know how it goes!


Tonights project!

This is tonights project. I'm making a table runner for the bridal shower I'm involved in on Tues. So far its super cute and I wish I didn't have to give it away! Lol

Blogged from my phone, have a good night! I'm off to bed, I have a headache :(

Take a real long look...

The reason why I say that is because I'M WEARING A SKIRT!! I usually don't wear a skirt, and its even more rare for me to wear a skirt when it's cold outside! Its not that I don't have any skirts to wear, believe me I have a whole closet full. So here it is...

Do you know what made me want to wear a skirt today??? My green tights! I love them soo much, they make me happy lol!

The last 2 days I worked and they were fun. I really like my new co-workers and can't wait to get to know them more over the time. The doctors are finally more friendly and warming up to me, Dr Pearl was so intimidating to me. Every time I would be around him I'd get all shy and it was driving me nuts. Now I'm to the point where I can joke around with him and I can see him being one of my fav docs at work as time goes on. At work right now everyone is going through a hard time and moral is slightly down, so I took it upon myself to try and make things slightly better by writing at least 3 'high fives' a shift. A high five is when you recognize someone for doing something outstanding or something you really appreciated. I know at my other job I personally felt more appreciated every time I got a high five on the board and it made me have more pride in the work that I did.  So I'm going to try it out and see if it makes a difference. 

That's what I did over the weekend, what did you guys do??

Saturday Morning Seen It

Look what I woke up to today! This is the picture outside my window in my front door. I love when the snow just lightly coats the ground and trees, especially when I still need to clean up the yard and make it winter ready!

Well everyone have an awesome Saturday. My agenda goes as planned, my cousins baby shower at noon, then climbin at 6 or 7 (I better check on that lol)

(Ps hope this post turns out I'm trying the email from my phone thing)

Happy Friday!

Oh how long I've waited for you Friday, Fridays bring joy to my face! lol I find myself laughing inside at the moment. Anyways let me think here what makes this Friday so great and why am I kinda bummed about this Friday at the same time....
Thought process is as such...
   Today is payday-EVERYONE loves that day!
   Today is my day off- another thing I think everyone loves
   Today is my list checkin off day-kinda goes along with my day off

 I'm kinda bummed though because
   I woke up with a horrible neck pain, my neck slightly hurt yesterday but it hurts more this morning. I took 3 ibuprofen and put a heating pad on it the Hubs said I look like one of my patients with a C-collar on. (Thanks Hubs..,.NOT!) lol
   I have a lot to do today so I can't really stay in my pjs as long as I wanted too

Other than those things I think today is a good Friday! Todays my mother-in-laws birthday so Happy Birthday Mary. Can't wait to go to dinner tonight at Granny Annies! Yummm!! Here is what I'm wearing right now.

Look at these amazing earrings I picked up at a local craft show called Craft Lake City. I had saved the business card of the lady who made them but now that I really need it I can't find it (of coarse). But they are made from eucalyptus leaves and they rock!

My pup Boomer wanted to make and appearance here today, he is 6 years old and needs a haircut super bad! lol love that dog!

Have a great weekend everyone, I'm a climbin tomorrow!!

Je m'appelle Nikki!

Today is kinda going to be a post about myself and things that I wouldn't really share or would not usually come up. Here are 5 new facts about myself that maybe you don't already know.

1. I can sometimes be a risk taker/thrill seeker. I have been skydiving and scuba diving. Scuba diving isn't too bad but when your biggest fear is drowning then its petty scary. I've been scuba diving in NV, Key West, Grand Cayman, and Belize. Honestly, everything looks the same down there. Ok well lakes are different but all the ocean dives I've been on have all been very similar.

2. I love to travel. My usual internet routine is to look at my email, then facebook, blogger, then travel websites. I'm always looking for great deals and comparing prices. Hubs probably gets sick of saying 'We are already going on a trip that month.' Its true though, I usually plan at least 1 weekend a month to be out of town whether its a big trip or just a small get away to the cabin. I love traveling!

3. Hubs got a handgun this past year and I finally got the guts up to shoot it a couple of weeks ago. They scare the crap out of me for some reason, I'm fine with shooting a shotgun though. I know doesn't make much sense, anyways we went to the range and I got 2 bulls eyes!

4. I absolutely hate oatmeal! I have tried so hard to like it but man I can't handle the texture. Its just a big bowl of mush, yogurt and bananas get to me to at times.

5. I just wrote the best assignment for school every. I had to write a letter to my body apologizing for every horrible thing i have said or done to it.  It sure makes me appreciate my health and how well my body works. Ya I know this one isn't really a fun fact about me, but i really enjoyed the assignment. I think everyone should really try it out.

Welcome November...FLO=Fun Little Outfit...

November has finally come which means snow is on it's way! And guess what folks...IT SNOWED!! Man the only thing was I was watching it fall from the inside of a hospital room. I think my patient was getting sick of me saying a few things yesterday. 1. "Take a deep breath and cough for me, thank you" and 2. "I love the snow, it's so pretty. I can't wait to bundle up and go snowboarding." Every time I would go into her room she would pretend to fall asleep so she wouldn't have to talk to me, at least it seemed like it. Oh well, luckily for her most people don't remember their ICU stay and she wont even remember my annoying comments about the awesome snow. lol!

Highlight # 2 of the week(and it's only wed, this is an awesome week so far!) Tomorrow is my last ICU class!! Woot Woot! Don't get me wrong I love learning, but I'm just not sure I'm learning much in this class. I can't wait to just going back to working 3 days a week. I would never make it in the normal workville working 5 days a week.

Highlight #3-Pay day is Friday! Enough said lol

Highlight #4-I took a Fun Little Outfit picture today or I'm now going to abbreviate it to FLO lol a FLO what a silly abbreviation! I really like my outfit today. I think I've only worn this jacket which I got from Target once and I felt as if it was too fancy for my style. But I really like how it looks with this plaid shirt underneath it with jeans. PS the plaid shirt is from Khols and if you go right now it's 50% off, I bought it last night! lol

That's it folks! I'm off to go to Harmons to buy some tuna steaks...Hubs says I really need to try those for dinner tonight. So we are goin for it!
