Outfit and The Gratitude Challenge

November 3, 2011

This is what happens when I don't have a photog and have to resort to taking pics of myself in a Ross dressing room...I've hit a new low. Also all the junk on my sweater is from trying on a Michael Kors faux fur vest...even at Ross it was too expensive for me :(!
Backwards Cardi: Kmart, Skirt: Thrifted, Leggings: Kohls (Simply Vera), Flats: Maurices?, Bracelet: JCrew, Earrings: Charlotte Russe

First can I just say how much I have missed you guys? I know I have been MIA lately. Blame it on my super crazy hard Color Theory midterm. Who knew this class would be so scientific?! You'll forgive right?
Well on to the challenge part I was on Pinterest (like I usually am) and came across this super cute Instagram gratitude challenge for November. Seemed very fitting since Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Here's the deal:

Now will I make it through this? I am sure going to try! I foresee many stockpile posts ;)...like this one ;)! So let's kick off this challenge mmk?!

Day One: Favorite Food
I'm a junk food junkie. My weakness is for potato chips. Dill pickle and luau bbq are my crack. And of course what do I like to chase my chips with? An ice cold diet Dr. Pepper with straw of course!

Day Two: Smile
Cheese! Smiling is my fave.

Day Three: Happiness
For this category I could have put a million pictures up. I have so much to be happy about in my life right now! I narrowed it down to one though, receiving a 4.0 last semester and being placed on the Dean's List. I receive so much fulfillment when I accomplish something that I thought I could never do. It for sure was hard work but more than worth it in the end. I was proud of myself, that is when I feel truly happy. 

What do you guys think? Sick of the dressing room pics right ;). Are you going to do or are already doing the gratitude challenge? Really think you should! Love you guys!

  6. Your blog is put together well and I like the direction your going in, it's creative and inspiring. This 30 day challenge is a cool idea but I feel as though 30 days is too long for these assignments. I'm going to attempt taking all 30 pictures in one day and see if my eyes are bigger than my stomach. Thanks for sharing!
