30 for 30 Day 19

It's Monday, It's Cold, and not a whole lot has gone my way.  I heard someone on the radio win $15,000 with my same name "Alicia" but unfortunately my bank account is still empty.  Oh well, at least I am back on my 30 for 30 and I love my outfit today.  I feel sorta glam!

Back in Full Effect! 15, 16 &17...Saturday 18!

So as a I told you, I broke my camera lens... VERY upsetting!  But as parents do, my mom really pulled through.  She caught me up on my pics!  Here is the only problem... unlike some of my fellow 30 for 30ers during this extended weekend I saw no need to leave my warm comfortable sweats some days, including today.  So that cause us to have Monday through Wednesday; when I was at work (aka Day 15-17).  Thursday and Friday I never left the sweats which then brings us to 18 (Saturday) when the hubby and I went for a "family fun day" as we like to call them.  We may go on a date or just hang out.  This time we hung out and had The Cheesecake Factory at the end of our travels... Ok, this is going to be a long one but here we go  15, 16 & 17....and 18.

Two Dresses! 

Love this necklace! Found it at an antique shop

Another necklace I love... and have had forever which means I have no clue where its from

Stop and smell the roses

This is my, I'm caught face! I bought this headband from Megan Maude at the craft show! Forgive me?!

For a special treat... here is the end result of The Cheesecake Factory and my hubby's impatience as I try to take the perfect picture.  Notice the hand hanging out ready to devour the 30th Anniversary Cheesecake!

Finally! The hand monster left the shot! DELICIOUS!

30 for 30 Day 12

Hey guys! I've missed you!  I haven't seen you since Thursday!  Let me explain, I had a crazy day Friday so no post, the weekend kept up with the crazy.  I had a great, girly weekend with my sissy and one of my besties! We will talk about all that later on.  Right now let me try to catch up on my 30 for 30.  Here is day 12.  Day 13, 14, and 15 to come.  OH BTW, broke the lens to my SLR! Yep, I said it. :( I think my awesome Mommy is going to pull through for me with an extra lens while I wrap-up my 30 for 30.  THANKS MOM! 

I digress... here is Friday's outfit.

I promise not to break the rules...

This weekend in Atlanta is the Indie Craft Experience (ICE).  I have been trying to go to this show for 3 years now.  I have to go! I know I am not allowed to shop but I really want to go.  I promise not to break 30 for 30 rules... See the thing is I have my own dreams of putting on a Fashion themed "craft" show in the Atlanta area and I have wanted to see the set up at ICE because they are the biggest local show that is hosted here.  If you are in the Atlanta area you should check it out.  OH! and I just found out a good friend of mine will be showing.  Belle Bee will be at booth #36! She does amazing work.  

Yep, I know, breath taking.  She is as beautiful as her products inside and out.

30 for 30 Day 11

Well, you remember when I told you we ran out to memory and sunlight while taking weekly shots last Sunday? Yep.. I thought you would... well, we didn't get through  my entire weeks pictures.  Today's pictures were taken in doors in under 5 minutes first thing this morning.  I am so sorry for the quality of these pictures.  I promise I will do a retake, they look like mug shots.  I promise I didn't break any laws!  
For now... this is the best I could do.   

Old Navy cardigan, TJ Maxx pants $7!

Super Old belt-Gap Outlet? Shoes-Chinese Laundry

Cowl neck Infinity Scarf-I made it! (aka Berlynn Designs)

Is anyone else ready for Friday?!? One more day!  Its been a long week.  This weekend will have girlfriend/sister time too! looking forward to that!

30 for 30 Day 10...and a request for next week.

So before we go to outfit 10; I have a request.  Many of you have commented that my breaking my own rules outfit from day 3 was your favorite.  Thank you so much for all your kind words and support through this process.  You guys keep me inspired to finish!  It's so cool to see what can happen when you step outside your comfort zone!  My request to you is what are some rules you want to break that you are scared to try yourself?  I may try them for you.  I will do my best to fit them in to my 30 for 30 challenge outfit choices for next week! Do you have any suggestions for me?  

Ok, now here is outfit 10! With a Lady Tie no less!

30 for 30 Day 9

30 for 30 Day 8

I plan out my outfits for each week ahead of time and take the pictures on Sunday.  I do this because I leave before the sun finishes rising and I am home after it is already long gone.  Well my plan didn't work in my favor this weekend.  We returned home late and the sun was already setting.  By the time I took the pictures for what  I ended up wearing today we were out of sun and memory space! Oh well lesson learned.  

Here is day 8; I wore solid black tights and my black boots with this look.
 (It's raining in Georgia, yes, on a Monday!)

30 for 30 Day 6&7

Sorry I was MIA this weekend.  We forgot our camera at a friends house, so needless to say I didn't get to post pictures... SO... here is Day 6 & 7!


 SUNDAY (Day 7)

Day 8 Outfit (today) will post later today...
