The weather outside is frightful

Seriously it is 2 degrees outside and so cold. I decided to brave the cold though tonight and get some Christmas shopping done. I also needed a few things for myself at the mall. I have really been wanting matchstick jeans so that I can tuck them into my Uggs. I decided I should look at Forever 21 for some cheap ones since I have never worn the style before. It is a little intimidating to shop for pants there because they are all so small. I couldn't believe it when the largest pair was too big for me! I also couldn't believe it when they were only $12! I also picked up two pairs of really cute pearl earrings at another store that are not photographing well enough to post. One is half a pearl that is set with diamonds surrounding it, the other is a large dangling pearl. They are very classic!!

Tomorrow we have the firehouse Christmas party, it is pretty casual but I am not sure what I will wear yet, most likely jeans. I may just wear my new purple blazer that I wore on Thanksgiving. I was talking to a few of the other wives and we all agreed to jeans for the evening. One thing is for sure I will be sporting my new earrings!

For all of those who have been inspired by my workout posts thanks for your sweet words. I will continue but post more frequently about it after the new year. I am so happy that I am getting hooked during the off season when the gym is slow. I am actually off to the gym now because I didn't work out yesterday and won't have time tomorrow. I am guessing I will be one of the only people there since it is freezing.

I love tucking my skinny jeans into my boots. I have discovered that if you take tall socks and tuck your jeans into them and then put on your jeans they look much better. It seems like such a no brainer, but I had to be told about it! :)

just found your blog and looking forward to following along. I loved your post the other day about gym motivation. I have that camelbak waterbottle and it is Awesome! I also have a polar heart rate monitor and love that sucker as well. My newest desire is a Garmin watch that basically does everything but run for you- https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?cID=142&pID=349. It's WAY out of my price range, but a girl can dream, eh?
