Give Thanks

Thankful today for my home! A home is one of the most treasured things! It's where you live, it's where you create memories, it's where you build a life!

I am also thankful today because we are getting 2 new pieces of furniture, a sofa and a coffee table for our living room. Since we are getting a new sofa in that room, we have moved our other one in our den area, which has allowed me to do some rearranging and change the room into the black and white space I've always wanted.

Still tweaking here and there, but think it's coming together nicely so far . . .

Last night I stayed up (way too late) and worked on a project and made my own "Give Thanks" sign to go over my mantel! Think it turned out pretty cute! Will have to take more photos later.

I'm also very excited because my family is coming tomorrow and I can't wait! It's been a while since I have seen them. But the good news is, my parents are moving to Dallas - which means they will be much closer and I will be able to go visit more. (Before they were 13+ hours away.)

If I'm not back on before Thursday, I wish all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving and hope you all enjoy time with your family!

My Fall Fashion Staple & Colored Jeans

It is at the in between kinda cool, but not too cold weather and I have been wearing my favorite Fall fashion staple - my black blazer!

I love wearing it because I can dress it up or down, I can wear it over a dress or with jeans and I can make some of my sleeveless tops I wore in the summer transition into my Fall wardrobe!

We went to a birthday party over the weekend and I wore my blazer over a long, black tunic, paired with my new electric blue jeans (which you can't really see in the picture unfortunately.) I have been wanting a pair of these pants for a while and finally bought some last week at Target! I've seen a lot of celebs wearing them lately and since I wear a lot of black, I thought it would brighten up my wardrobe a bit.

I also wore this blue stone necklace that I've had in my closet for a while. I was just waiting for the perfect outfit to wear it with and when I bought the pants I immediately thought of this necklace! I got the necklace at Charming Charlie. Sometimes that store gives me a headache because there is SO much in there - but last time I was in there I totally scored when I got this necklace! However, I must say - if you need an accessory in a certain color . . . . that is the store you want to go to!!

Here are some photos of celebs who are sporting colored jeans!

I know people are hating on KimK right now - but I still LOVE her style! I'm also diggin the emerald green jeans Fergie is wearing!

So what do you all think about colored jeans? yay or nay?

Go T-I-G-E-R-S Go!

Wednesday night hubby and I went to the first Memphis Tigers game. I became a fan because M went to school there and is a huge fan of course!

I went casual in my Memphis attire! We enjoyed the game then went to the Flying Saucer afterwards. I used to hang out there ALL the time back in the day, but hadn't been there in forever so it was good to go and hang out for a bit!

Hopefully the Tigers will have a good season! Our football team is not too impressive, but Tigers basketball is usually pretty exciting! We shall see!

Happy Weekend!
