  1. Well! That was fun to read!
    I loved the "style" description!

    1. I wasn't sure how to describe my fashion. I almost said "school girl," but I didn't want people to think Britney Spears! *haha*

  2. Your comment on my blog made me laugh aloud today because I do the same thing! I'll have to start following you too. Hope you guys had a great weekend!

    1. Thanks for following! I did get some good deals this weekend by hitting up Old Navy's $1 flip-flop sale, so that was great. I hope you had a great weekend, as well. :) My husband was sick, so we didn't make to service this morning. We haven't been in a good two months either because we have either been out of town or I was recovering from illness. I guess there is always next weekend...!


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with me. I will reply to you as soon as possible!
