PARTY OF 3!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING LOVES!

It’s been a while since i’ve posted anything and today seems like the perfect day to begin again.

So, I had a baby! LOL! I took a break to enjoy my pregnancy…plus, I was so huge, I couldn’t fit into anything anyway. I went from a nice 135lbs to a whooping 196lbs before my 8lb baby boy made his debut. When I say that baby Sammy was a surprise….HE WAS NOT PLANNED! BUT, VERY WELCOME!

7 months!Pregnancy Shoot

We found out we were pregnant on my parent’s 24th wedding anniversary and nothing was the same afterwards. Pregnancy was not what I expected. I wanted that pregnancy glow everyone talks about…but, what I got were chin hairs, vicious acne, stretch marks, severe acid reflux and LOTS of extra fat.

Still, Samuel Krisitian Ford came out a health baby.

Ready to PopD-Day. At Brookwood HospitalFresh Out the Womb

He was 4 days overdue and STILL didn’t want to come out so I ended up having to get a cesarean. Now, i’m just trying to heal and enjoy my little family.

Today, Sammy is 3 weeks old and gaining weight every single day.

He is the joy of our lives, he is the reason for my reason for lack of sleep, the reason I smell like vomit and urine all day long and the reason I am constantly smiling (how did I get so lucky?).

He is my new reason for existing. So this Thanksgiving, I want to take time out to say how thankful I am for my little Ford family and this blessing God has bestowed on Samuel and I.

I hope you all are enjoying time with your families and all that good home cooking. I pray that your homes are filled with joy, peace and much love.

Happy Thanksgiving…Love you, Mean it!

pssss…enjoy Black Friday for me and shop twice as hard

LoveDay Fly

Valentine Day is 5 days away.

For me, it’s all about the outfits. I tried and tried to get my hubby to do a post with me for Valentine Day but he wasn’t having it…LOL. He’s not about the blogging life. But, I did do a great post that I can’t wait to share with you all. I want to share some affordable and cute styles for you and your significant other for you v-day. Everything here will be wallet-friendly because you don’t have to splurge to look like a million dollars.

This look is a whooping 9,355.00. It’s gorgeous, but entirely too expensive. Let’s see if we an recreate it for less. BTW you can find this along with other looks on my Polyvore Page.

I hope this helps you in finding something perfect for your valentine day look. Don’t forget to try other styles like a jumpsuit or even a skirt. Whatever feels good to you and looks great on you, try it out.

Here is a look at how I would dress my husband if he would allow me to…LOL. But he has such great style already, I can’t complain. I love this monochromatic look:

Does your husband or boyfriend let you dress them for special occasions? So, would you dress him in this look? I like it because it’s so clean and crisp and would tone down the bright reds and pinks that I would definitely be wearing.

I can’t wait to hear from you all about your V-day plans and what you plan on wearing.

Don’t forget about the All-red look I did at the beginning of the month. Check it out and scroll all the way to the bottom for the links for the look: Hello February

 

I hope this helped you in some way. Keep being fashionable. Love you. Mean it!

RTR

Iron Bowl 2015

First things first…Alabama or Auburn?!

If you’re from the South or love college football, you know what RTR stands for: Roll Tide Roll! The University of Alabama knows they choose a bomb print and a gorgeous color for their uniforms. Houndstooth and Crimson Red go hand-in-hand like Louboutins and Louboutins…lol! I am not a big sports girl, but my husband went to the University of Alabama for undergrad so I have to support and show my team spirit…my way.

A fall essential that every girl should have in their closet is a pair or two of leather tights, leather pants or leather anything! I own about 6 pairs of leather pants and I wear them indiscriminately. I styled my faux leather pants by sugarlips with a white knitted sweater and an Anne Klein Jacket. I found another great Houndstooth jacket on Zulily for $40.00. I love these  leatherette leggings from Dillards because they are affordable and the detailing is gorgeous.

I absolutely love this Anne Klien jacket. Let me know where you found your favorite jacket and put a link down below.

Also, comment below and let me know who you think is going to take this game home, Alabama or Auburn?
