it's all about me...

okay not really,
it's all about this dress i got the other day.
i wanted to show my blog friends ;)
i have no one else to show, haha.

i found the dress at a local boutique it's made by GRACIA.
i could only find it one place on the net ---> here.
it has pockets and ruffles ...i heart both!!
again, i'm really not good at taking self-pics, haha...
and i'm wearing my comfy beloved wedges from target...

so....
yesterday i had this bright idea.
i was thinking about billy and the long day he had.
8 hours on ice skating.
then 2 team practices that evening.
i figured we wouldn't be seeing each other awake yesterday so i thought i'd send him a picture of me.
i'm not good at taking self-portraits.
i think i took like 50 pictures of myself.
not satisfied with any of them.
i still sent him one.
i had a clip-in flower in my hair yesterday and thought it was cute.
have any of you ladies ever worn flowers in your hair?
funny to me how i look different in each picture, ha!
he ended up with the one on the far right.
i received a text after saying...
you look so pretty, i love you!
awww :)

billy didn't end up having to go to the practices last night.
nice for us to spend a little time together.
i went to the gym and got in 3 miles on the treadmill.
took the pup for a walk.
made a quick stop at the grocery store.
got a load of laundry folded.
 painted my nails a coral color.
made chicken breasts, veggies and rice for din din.
actually billy grilled the chicken, it was de-lish.
then billy watched RHNJ with me! ;)
i ended the night with 4 cookies....hahaha.
so much for going to the gym and eating a healthy dinner.

i'm going to attempt to run outside tonight.
i like running outside i just don't like all the traffic.
 the weather here is beautiful here though so i want to enjoy it!

well, that post was random...
happy tuesday friends!!

aww Billy is right! you look gorgeous!!

Maryellen said...

Great dress. You look super cute in it. I also liked the flower clip. I personally have never worn a flower clip but one of my friends does and I think she always looks so cute with it in her hair.

RHNJ? I'm very jealous. I really do love all those shows but they're too distracting for me lately. I can't let myself get sucked in. The other day I watched about five house of RHNYC. Yikes.

Jenn said...

Cute dress and you do look diff in all 3 pics but gorgeous in each!

Maryellen said...

I meant to say five hours not five house.

Megan said...

Love the dress, super adorable!!!! I just wore a flower in my hair this weekend, and every now and again I will wear the headband with flowers. So glad you got to spend some time together, busy schedules are tough.

I love that dress. You look so chic and adorable. Its a gorgeous color on you. Nice choice of dress. And may I just say that pockets are my fav!!! I love pockets. Especially on skirts. They just add that little something that is sometimes missing on a dress or skirt.

I'm glad you and your hubby had a great night together :)

71 comments-wow! Fun to have you as a follower--Lena Kate pictures are good for the soul...or I think so anyway. Love the dress and what a sweet guy you've got!

Elaine said...

Oh, and ending the dinner with 4 cookies after working out- we were destined to be friends...at the very least blog friends. Why else do we work out?...ok, maybe that is just my perspective.

Ms. Emily Ann said...

Hey! Just came across your blog, and want to start by saying props to you for getting your guy to watch Real Housewives.. I try to get Mike to watch it with me week after week, and I fail week after week :(

Also.. Love that dress! The color looks great on you, and I am sold on anything with pockets, don't ever really use them, but love them! And I have a black flower clip I wear every once in a while, its a fun alternative to a headband!

Excited to read more from you :)
