Joie De Vivre

My first roast!

I'm no expert cook and trust me- I used a slow cooker!  It came out okay. The meat was really tender and the flavor was decent. I think next time I will marinate my meat a little longer and go with a different sauce.  It was fun to experiment on my husband's family. :)

First tall boots of the season!

In Louisiana it doesn't get so cold that you really NEED tall boots. It is definitely more for fashion. There are probably 3 days out of the year that require extremely heavy winter wear here.  Anyway, I fell in love with these boots and had to have them!!

My first wreath.

It's not very impressive. In fact, it is kinda ugly but I'm proud of it and it hangs on our front door.  Eventually I will master the craft of wreath making but for the record this is my first one. lol

Bling Bling.

I don't know what is going on with me but I seriously love gaudy, sparkly jewelry right now. In fact- I keep picturing myself with a flannel shirt, leather pants, combat boots, messy up do and blinged out chandelier earrings. Anyway, I got this necklace for $10 at Forever 21.  I've worn it twice and  I do love it.  I'm sure 10 years from now I'll see this picture and think "Why did I wear that?"

Packing Lunches.

Excuse the awful picture apparently oreos and grapes don't photograph well when ziplocked in bad  lighting. lol  As newlyweds we are adjusting to budgeting and all of that lovely stuff.  Well, I found that I spend approximately $190 on lunch food a month.  I've also haven't been able to lose weight and I think a lot of it has to do with me visiting good ole Chic-fil-a twice a week.  So I'm challenging myself to pack my lunch daily.  At the end of this month I will see if it is saving me any money. :)
