WIWW {green and wedges}

Today I felt like actually getting dressed up. It's so hard being a stay at home mom sometimes. I hardly ever leave the house, I have a closet full of cute clothes that I never wear because I never go out, and when I do leave the house it's usually in a t-shirt, jeans, and flip flops. 
I miss getting dolled up, putting on makeup, and curling my hair. But I traded all that in for watching kid shows, playing with blocks, and snuggling with my little guy. I would not change a thing! I think I just need to make it a point to get dressed up once in a while just to feel like a girl!

Jeans: Big star

Camera and pictures

So excited because I finally got my camera! I got a Cannon EOS rebel T3i. I decided I needed a decent camera to take pictures of Jaxon and I thought if I got pretty good at taking and editing pictures that I could start doing it professionally. 

So I still have tons to learn with the camera and with photoshop elements! It's all a little overwhelming! Any one know of tutorials on how to learn on the camera/photoshop?

Here are some pictures I took of my baby

Thursday, August 25, 2011 I come!

So we got the call from our time share and we get to go to... Cali!!! 
We gave up hope thinking we were going to go, but the the 2nd to the last day that we were on the waiting list we got the call. I am so stoked!
I need a vacation so bad that it's not even funny. 
We leave in a couple of weeks and get to stay for about a week. We will be staying in Oceanside, which me and my family love. We were hoping to try staying somewhere different this year but we will take what we can get! 

I can already envision the smell of the ocean, the sand between my toes, sun on my face, and the sound of the waves crashing on to the shore...awe paradise!

Now let's just hope the weather is nice! 
Thanks for all your good thoughts!!! 

Inspiration Workshop {Favorite Color...Cerise}

Today is week #13 of inspiration workshops and this weeks prompt is your favorite color. I am such a girly girl and I love purple and pink, but I love purple more! So I thought I would do something fun and do a color combo of the two which is Cerise which is also my name just spelled a little different. 

A deep to vivid purplish red.
[French, from Old French, cherry; see cherry.]

Gussy Sews Inspiration Workshop!

So I went to Vegas last Saturday and it was a fun filled day shopping, shopping, eating, and shopping! So I have to drive almost 2 hours to Vegas to get the up to date current trendy fashion. Here in good ole St. George we have one tiny baby mall with a handful of stores that I like. So we go shopping to Vegas every couple of months or so and I can't tell you how fun it is for me. It's like a kid in a candy store! 

We went to the fashion mall and spent about 4 to 5 hours there and then walked the strip down to Caesars palace to eat at the Cheesecake factory. It was like I died and gone to heaven! I love that place so much and got the four cheese pasta (which I shared with my mom, those portions are too big for me) and then we all shared some red velvet cheesecake, yum! 

Dumb me forgot my camera so I only took a few pics with my phone. 

Taking a break, too much walking!

Love this store :)

So I got a few goodies on my little trip. I made an outfit that I was envisioning the whole time I was shopping. I didn't buy the whole outfit but got the jeans, jacket, and purse.

Picture perfect

I LOVE this picture, one of my favorites!

WIWW {Errand fashion}

I doesn't seem like summer is coming to an end. We are still in the hundreds here and it will still be nice for a couple of months. I remember a couple of years ago on Thanksgiving it was in the 70's and we were outside playing football. 
It's so nice to have nice weather year round, I have a big columbia coat that I have never worn here because really you don't need it. So on my little shopping trip to Vegas I bought a cute breasted hood jacket, that is perfect for the cold nights here (ill post more about the Vegas trip tomorrow)

So I was going to have the cutest outfit post today, I even straightened my hair and everything. But I got super busy running errands and just through on jeans, shirt and a hat! But I promise to have a super cute outfit one of these days. I really want to do a outfit post of the super cute skirt I won from La Vie Petite , so excited to get it in the mail today. Cori makes such amazing stuff! 

So here is my outfit for the week

I love his face, he loves to be outside :)

Jax never wants to look in the camera, so frustrating!

Hat: Target
Shirt: Victoria Secret Pink
Jeans: Big Star
Shoes: Volcom
Bracelet: Buckle and Areo
Necklace: Forever 21
