Weekend Girl...

Happy Football Sunday y'all! At least that's what's going on in my house. I hope everyone's weekend has been going well.

Friday night, I attended a bonfire gathering to celebrate my sis in-laws birthday. It was my first one, and I really had a good time. Saturday afternoon, hubby, myself and the kiddos went to a Hip-hop Festival. There were graffiti artists, break dancing and freestyle battles. We missed the free-styling, but I enjoyed what we were able to catch. Saturday evening, I went with hubby to a company dinner to celebrate their 10th anniversary… which brings me to the OOTD.

I snagged this cute & colorful dress from Target on clearance for $9.98!! It would have been a shame NOT to get it. I think it's perfect for work, or a nice dinner. The fall colors are what drew me to it. You can't go wring with oranges, browns and blues for Fall. The only negative (if you can call it that) is, I wish I had picked up a smaller size. I had to put on the denim blazer because the dress is pinned in the back.

Out of habit, I grabbed an XXL and went to the dressing room, but was pleasantly surprised when that didn't work. Because I didn't have much time, I left the dressing room, picked up the XL and was on my way. If I had tried it on in the store, I would have gotten the L. I probably should have tried it on at home before it was time for me to get ready :/ It's a good problem to have, but in a way it's weird not knowing your size. I digress.

Until next time…



I can't say enough how much I'm enjoying my hair!! My second twist out & I love the messiness of it!
