I Mustache You Some Questions Tag!



I was tagged by the lovely Leslie at Once Upon A Time & Happily Ever After.  I had so much fun reading her version of it that I decided to go ahead and do it too.

What are four names people call me other than my real name?
  • Shelly - Some of my friends
  • Sweetie - MY sweetie of course
  • Missy - My mom.  Hehe I think it started out of sarcasm
  • Twitch - My lovely friends!  Because I twitch when things are a little not perfect! 
What are four jobs I have had?
  • First job - Judy's  I LOVED that store but it's no longer around
  • Charlie Brown's - Hostess.  I still can't believe I ever did this.  Good restaurant 
  • Ross - Customer Service!  AND for Four years.  That was an interesting job!
  • Bridal Consultant at Robinson's May (now Macy's) A couple months later, I met my husband :)
What are four movies I have watched or would watch over again?
  • The Goonies "Hey you guuuuuuys!"
  • Selena "Anything for Selenas"
  • Twilight Series - I mean, what's not to like?
  • Hunger Game Series - I just LOVE this series.  The books were amazing!                                   I could name a few more.  We LOVE movies in this house.
 What are four books I would recommend?
How about four books on my "TO Read" list.  I am currently in a time management funk.  This includes not giving myself the time to read.
  • Elizabeth Smart - I remember hearing about her abduction when I was younger.  I'm intrigued by these stories of survival
  • Lea Michele, Brunette Ambition - I just absolutely LOVE her!
  • Sugar Savvy Solution - Well... I can't really see myself ever really cutting sugar completely out, but I want to make better choices and I think this is where it starts
  • The Life - Changing magic of Tidying Up.  I have heard so much about this and was super curious that I looked up what it was.  I don't think I'll follow it exactly, I've heard some great quotes that will help in decluttering.                                                                                               I would love to read something easy and fun.  I'm in the middle of reading The Story Teller.  It's been a tough read for me only because I'm not LOVING it but I refuse to not finish a book I have already started. 
Where are four places I have lived?
  • Anaheim, California
  • Chula Vista, California
  • Norfolk, Virginia
  • Merced, California                                                                                                                   California and Virginia have been the only two states I have lived in.  We were not lucky with any of our "sets" of orders while my husband has been in the military.
Where are four places I have been?
  • Driven across the country
  • Mexico
  • Minnesota
  • New York
Where are four places I'd rather be right now?
  • In bed sleeping ;)
  • Sitting on my mommy's couch with her rubbing my head (hurry up mamas)
  • On vacation with my little family
  • My parents home: there's no place like home and my mama's cooking
What four things do I refuse to eat?
  • cooked vegetables -eek not my favorite
  • black licorice
  • coconut covered anything
  • pretty much anything that doesn't look appealing to my eyeballs
What four foods do I like the best?
  • Chocolate - I am soooo spoiled at work right now
  • Pizza - I could pretty much eat it any day of the week
  • My moms cooking - There's not one thing she makes that I don't like
  • Pasta - I LOVE carbs!
What TV shows do I watch regularly?
  • The Real Housewives - yes I did say that.  All but Atlanta
  • House of Cards - Such a great show
  • Keeping Up With the Kardashians - I know, I know but I just LOVE their style!
  • Revenge 

What four things am I looking forward to this year?
  • My mom coming out to visit
  • One week off from work
  • Road trip in September
  • My Brother in Laws wedding - and to see family
What four things do I say the most?
  • "Time for bed"
  • "seriously?!"
  • "OMG" I don't know that I actually say it like that but I here it in my head ALL THE TIME
  • "Give me kiss" when I leave the house or the kids do.  It's habit now. 
I hope you enjoyed my little list as much as I enjoyed putting it together.  Thank you so much for thinking of me Leslie.  Now I will tag one blogger that I know personally, Jenni from Real Life on Reagan!  TAG, you're it!

Until Next Time
XOXO,

My TOP 3 Wardrobe Picks for Spring and a Little GIVEAWAY!

OOoooh How are you all?!  Eek it's been a while.  This mama has been doing some serious overtime at work.  I can't wait to share those details and get back to blogging more regularly.  Thanks to those of you who sent me messages wondering where I have been :)

I am so excited to be participating in a FABULOUS giveaway with a FABULOUS group of bloggers I met through the Style Me Pretty challenges. How does a $130 gift card to Nordstrom sound?! Sounds good doesn't it? After you check out these beautiful ladies, enter the Rafflecopter right underneath them :)

Like I said, I have been so busy with work.  I promise I will share soon.  I haven't had ANY time to shop.  The weather is definitely changing and I was soooo ready to do the Challenge for Spring but decided to wait.  I can only really wear pants and tennis shoes to work.  My hair has to be pulled back, no jewelry, no perfume, and the temperature stays at 68 degrees inside the store, I'm ALWAYS freezing!

Trying to come up with a spring wardrobe has been difficult since I have some restrictions.  I'll be dressing for Fall instead of Spring only because I'm always cold.  So for me, my spring wardrobe will have to be super cute clothes I can wear on the weekend and days off.

I've been stalking Pinterest for ideas. I've been trying to find outfits with pieces I may have in my closet already.  Here are my top 3 FAVORITE looks.

I LOVE this look.  I definitely have a cute black dress that I wear every summer.  There's also something I really LOVE about the denim jacket with it.  I won't be able to do that when it starts to get hot, but this is a good spring day look that will be perfect for cool nights!

I am LOVING the idea of a light peachy pant. I have the denim top already, so this would be adorable!  I love the brown and the gold with it too.

Boyfriend Jeans!  Eeeeek I LOVE the pair that I have.  Believe it or not I found some really cute striped T's at Wal Mart the other day.  I may just have to go back for a couple.  My favorite color is green and the green with the denim looks so good.  I'm loving the bag so I may be on the hunt for something similar.

I'm pretty sure I would be completely happy with any of these outfits.  My goal for spring is to lose the extra pounds I've gained while eating chocolate at work.  THAT bad habit will stop on Monday!

What are your top 3 looks for Spring?
