Life is a box of chocolates

You just never know what you are going to get!! HA. Hey guys, so it’s been a while since I popped in. My bad! As usual, life is a whirlwind, I always wonder when things will slow down, but I am beginning to realize that this is the norm I guess.


Well last Thursday was a wonderful day and for many reasons. My parents were in town for my dad’s 8 week check up with his doctor who removed the cancer. Things look great and my dad can FINALLY walk again, drive again, etc. We are are super excited and grateful. He now will begin radiation 5 days a week.

While my parents were here, on the eve of Valentine’s day…the husband gave me a Valentine’s card. OK we number one, don’t do valentines day and number two, we don’t really do cards! LOL So I immediately assumed he was just showing off. I proceed to open the card and to my surprise there are two boarding passes inside.

Months ago, he booked a trip to the galleria in Houston, Texas for a weekend shopping spree! He had even told my boss about it so that I could be off on Friday! I was completely blown away. Not to mention it was an absolute blast and we popped some tags! I feel like the luckiest girl in the world, no doubt.

I am feeling so blessed right now. To see my dad recovering and getting stronger everyday. There are so many exciting new things on the horizon that I just can’t wait for you guys to be a part of. 

Now enough mushy gushy talk from me, here is my OOTD featuring this cute sweatshirt.









H&M sweatshirt, Old Navy jacket, JcPenney tunic, Forever 21 leggings and boots.
