Howdy!

My nana found this letter as she was going through her things back at the house in February. It was in the large stack of papers of things she couldn’t part with, and I decided to take pictures of it in case I wanted to use it for this year’s blogmas. The date on it says “1997” which means I was roughly six or seven years old and probably in first grade, so I was only starting to write with my feet. We weren’t taught how to do cursive until second grade and as you will see, my foot-writing is less than impressive to what I’m known to do now.

We had an old home video of our Christmases, and there was a tape that showed my reaction when I was probably four or five years old. I was obsessed with Barney. I remember I got like 4 things that had Barney on it. So I had a lamp, two different sized stuffed Barneys, and a blanket. This had to be the same Christmas, Blondie and I were given this soft lounge chair; it was of Simba and I imagine we fought like crazy to sit in it because somebody had to get another one. It wasn’t of Simba or any other Disney character, but it was still in the animal category. We had those well into our preteens actually!

Another thing I was obsessed with, were the Olsen twins. It was absolutely insane! I know I’ve already written a post about how bad it was, but it’s nice to know that this letter proves how much I loved them! Funnily enough, three years later it was all about Backstreet Boys, N’Sync, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. Once I hit a certain point, my ultimate favorite gift to receive were CDs. It was on my list every year, even after I got into using my iPod, I would still ask for physical CDs and gift cards if they were going to Walmart to purchase the records. What really gets me is the middle of the suggestions is “scissors to cut paper”. First of all I was never allowed to use the scissors, hell I cannot use them because of the placements of my toes. So the fact that my mom didn’t even try to talk me out of it, is actually pretty hilarious!

If you’ve ever read a child’s letter to Santa Claus, one thing you’ll notice is that they never want to add clothes and tend to get pretty ticked off if Santa brings them any, but once we get older, our directions change. For girls, we do look forward to receiving clothes, we’re just praying that “Santa” picks us something that we generally like and nothing that “he’d” like to see us in. I think one of my favorites to get now are socks! I really enjoy fuzzy socks, they’re a little quirky but soft and easy to put on by myself! Leggings are fun to give as a gift, but I feel like whoever decides to get me another pair, needs to take a look into my closet to see what all matches the shirts before they make their decision. I have so many leggings that hardly go with any of my tops.

A few weeks ago, I posted a question on my personal Facebook page about what they used to ask Santa Claus for when they were children and now that they’re older, what they’re asking for now. I wanted to share some of my favorites with you! Some of the responses that answered for when they were younger were a pony, easy bake oven, video games, baby dolls and action figures. Now they want a day spent around with family, cooking pans, loyalty (which I thought was interesting!) experiences and something we’ve already discussed: socks! Apparently I’m not alone in my love of them.

Do you remember anything you wanted to get from Santa Claus when you were a kid? What would you like from Santa now that you’re older?

OOTD: Wonder

18601593_10202953827004749_622706510_n

Howdy!

Today is the day that the new Wonder Woman movie comes out starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, and Connie Nielsen! This post is not sponsored, I just bought a new WW shirt and decided to publish the outfit post because it felt right!

This will also my second DC superhero T-shirt that I have in my closet after the Batman shirt that my mom swore was apart of Marvel – you should have seen her face when I told her that Wonder Woman wasn’t part of it either! Anyways, I bought it when I got the other shirt at Walmart; I don’t remember if I had mentioned it in my last post that I found both of the shirts in the men’s section because half the time when I purchase tops they don’t fall off my shoulders! The necklines are so nice to me!

The shirt is mostly in different shades of gray, but has a comic version of Wonder Woman on the front. She’s located right in the middle of the shirt, she’s basically the only colored part of my shirt. She has her red and gold colors that everybody is familiar with. My mom made the comment as soon as I looked down on my arms, “well, one hand is covering up her face and the other has her hoochie!” Thankfully whenever I move my arm over on the armrest you can actually see her face, which makes me feel better! I can’t do much about the arm because it’s too low!

Now my pants are a pair of leggings I found on accident, they weren’t located in the regular section. They were in the middle of the walk way between the little boys and shoe sections! Out of all the leggings there, I only grabbed one because we were worried that they didn’t wash well, it was too strange for them to be there so my mom and I were having a hard time taking them seriously! Anyways, they’re a nice solid blue, on the left sleeve there is the word “Fearless” in caps and I always want to wear them with my superhero shirts and I think this one works well with them!

The cats in the background are eating leftover french fries and in the last picture, that was my sister’s arm on the side! 

What do you think of this outfit? Yay or nay? Are you going to see Wonder Woman this weekend?

OOTD: Oh, Deer!

16640847_10202568140962839_2023995670131552378_n

Howdy!

Today I have another outfit of the day, but I wanted to mention that I wore it on Friday, I just wasn’t able to get the pictures right away to publish it over the weekend.

As I mentioned in my V-Day OOTD I went shopping and managed to buy more colorful clothes, mostly in the T-shirt department. I really love my black clothing and everything, but unfortunately most of the tops I own doesn’t go with my bright and crazy leggings so somehow I managed to buy probably seven tops that do not have a shade of black on them! I did buy one gray and two black and white tops, but you’ll see soon the only reason I bought those last two were because they go with my personality really well!

I guess since we’re already on the subject, we can start on the shirt which is a simple tee in a pale shade of yellow. I don’t really care for pastel colors, but I do like a mint and nice yellow like this. The day I wore this, my mom wore her pink top, and we looked like a couple of Easter eggs! I think it’s a nice color though, it’s not in your face yellow, it’s a very sweet and gentle color.

16711861_1391913607539632_7577365190048334235_n

I think since because this is just a basic top, it was cheaper than the “Love” shirt I put up last week. They were also on sale too, which was the real reason why I came home with five different shirts. I’m pretty sure they were all $3 each and that is really good. I originally had another shirt that I wanted to wear with these pants I’m about to talk about in a minute, but I lost to both my mom and sister. My dad was on my side but beer was involved so his answer was invalided.

Anyways, the leggings were the first thing I saw when we got into the section and I fell in love with them instantly. You guys know I love my Aztec designs, so this one is no different except it has little deer and birdcage images with the normal shapes throughout, but the background is a solid black and it has a rainbow ombre of bold colors from the waist to the ankles.

Everybody that I was around that day, seemed to really like them and think they were from another brand that has become sort of popular recently, called LaRue but they’re from Wal-Mart instead. These were just $4 and that is a LOT better than some places especially LaRue’s prices as I was told! I know a lot of people have opinions about Wal-Mart’s leggings that they have a little bit of a history of tearing while in the wash, but I’ve never had any issues with them and majority of the leggings in my drawer is from there!

I also wore my shawl that morning since I had an early day at physical therapy and it was pretty chilly! I even had to wear a pair of socks, they weren’t anything fancy though! Just plan black socks that I feel shrunk while in the washer because my mom was having issues putting them on me and my nana almost took off my left foot trying to remove it when I got to her house!

So what do you think of this outfit? Yay or nay?

OOTD: Miss Marvel

010

Hello my friends!

I finally get to talk about this outfit. I actually wore this for Christmas but that whole day was a bit weird so I ended up forgetting about it. I didn’t think you would be waiting this long to get the actual post but okay!

If you guys didn’t know I am a HUGE nerd! I’m into a lot of superheros and a couple of vilians that even I didn’t realize I was into but I am! My poor mom is like my sister, they’re not into superheros. She only knows about Avengers, well Hulk and Captain America. She’s been nicknaming me lately “Miss Marvel” and I’ve been saying in my head “Captain Marvel” even though I’m not a blonde. She only calls me that because I’m mainly into Marvel superheros.

This outfit is pretty light, except for the socks. They’re like little booties! My shirt is while with the picture of all four Avengers: Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, and Hulk in comic form in gray, on top of them is the word “MARVEL” in pink bold letters. It also has two thick circles going around the edge of the sleeves. My mom thinks it looks like a jersey type of shirt because of the short sleeves alone. The leggings I’m wearing I bought those months ago, we found them at Walmart but like everything else in my closet, didn’t have anything to go with it! They’re like a royal blue, with the word “fearless” in bold letters on my left pant sleeve. Unfortunately, they’re not very thick so cold air goes right through them when you’re outside and they’re also very long on my legs too. I can literally cover up both of my feet with them, which I have to say I love!

What do you think of my outfit? Yay or nay? What superhero and/or villians do you admire?

OOTD: Happy New Year!

049

Hey! 😀

It’s finally 2016! I don’t know how I feel about it yet, but of course it’s only been two days so I’m allowed to have an uneasy feeling about it. I think I feel like this because of what’s been going on in the last couple of weeks. It has kind of changed my outlook of life, but then again it doesn’t feel like it’s a bad thing because it’s my reality and I can’t change evolution as much as I’d like to at the moment.

As I shared in my summary post, I really enjoyed doing my OOTD posts a lot than I expected! My mom knew how bored I’ve been that she took me over to my nana’s yesterday. I got to have my soup, ice cream and RC for lunch and spend time with my grandparents. When I came home my mom thought it was too cold to take my picture outside and even though I cleaned up my room a bit, you can clearly see the stuff I still have on m floor! I also thought it was too dark in there too, so blame the bad quality on her phone, mainly her flash for only working for my pants.

My top is simple, it’s a white and gray/blue thick striped hoodie. It’s very soft, probably one of the softest clothes I might’ve gotten for Christmas! It’s a little thin so I should probably wear another shirt underneath it but since I was going to my nana’s, I didn’t want to smother so this and my jacket were good enough for me! Now about my leggings. I got two pairs of Christmas-y leggings, which is what I wanted because I don’t care if they have reindeer and trees on them, I’ll wear them all year long! They are soooo nice and warm inside, which for me is everything!! I have little legs and get cold easily. I love the Rudolph and snowflakes all over! They’re so cute! I also wore my standard black socks since my mom’s recently found them!

What do you think of my outfit? Yay or nay? What are your thoughts about wearing Christmas-y clothes after the holiday is over?

OOTD: Aztec

009

Hi 🙂

So first off, if you came from Facebook or Twitter, you might realize the pictures are different from the others. I like to tease you a bit. I thought it would be cuter if I added the one with Oscar on my lap instead of the other, boring picture.

I went over to my nana’s Tuesday morning and this was what I wore over there. I actually got these leggings from a trip to the Dollar General last winter or maybe two years ago. They are my mom’s favorite, she likes to put them on me a lot. I’ve found a similar pair on Amazon, click here. They were a random purchase, we saw them on top of the racks and I knew I couldn’t leave without them. I had to wait until Christmas to wear them, but it was worth the wait! The shirt is a cotton, ivory top. I got it from Walmart along with the second top which is solid turquoise. Surprisingly both of them work well with the pants! So I actually have two ways to do this outfit and with me, that is really rare!

Have you been liking my OOTD posts? What do you like about them?

Hey!

I honestly don’t know how many more of these will be up by the end of the week but I hope you like them! I’ve been enjoying writing each one so that’s a good thing! I apologize again for having to take this picture indoors.

This whole outfit is from one brand! I don’t think that has ever happened before! Well, my Thanksgiving outfit is all from one place but you’ll have to wait to see that one! I’ve talked about the shirt before, it’s white with a picture of a man (don’t know who it is!) in light shades of gray around him like in a frame and it has black lettering of “Without Music Life Would Be A Mistake.” I can no longer find a link for it on the website. I got it last winter for Christmas! It’s probably a medium, but it’s fairly big on me and not at all thick in material. I choose to see the good in that, because then I can sleep in comfortably!

So that’s my top, now about my bottoms! They were purchased last week when I got my Harry Potter shirt! They’re solid black pants with white skulls and pink flowers with green/brown leaves. I’ve been calling them my “decomposing” pants. They just remind me of death, but in a good way if there is such a thing! My mom actually liked these; they’re stretchy around my waist. The sleeves are a bit long, I have to roll them up when I want to use my feet, but they’re not bad. They might turn into a new favorite! Lucky for you, I found a link for these. Click here if you want a pair like mine! They are listed as “leggings” but they don’t look or feel like leggings to me.

What do you think of this outfit?
