Goodbye For Now

I've been thinking...a lot. As most of you may already know, Matt and I have moved to Houston and I started a new job. It's been a whirlwind two weeks. I haven't taken outfit photos since before we left Austin, but I can honestly say that I don't really miss it. I didn't think this day would ever come, but I'm pretty sure it's finally arrived. I think I've been blogging for the last year and a half because it gave me something to do other than school and random jobs. It was something that kept my mind busy with outfit ideas and writing about myself everyday. With my new job, I've got plenty to keep me busy. In fact, I've been so tired after work the last couple of days that I kept putting off writing this.

What I'm trying to say is "goodbye", at least for now. I've got a lot on my plate right now and so many things that are more important in my life than blogging. I have an amazing boyfriend, a great job, an awesome apartment, and two wonderful pets. I want to concentrate on enjoying life, not stressing about taking a picture of an outfit that I only wore for 24 hours.

I might be back eventually. I just know that I need a break for now. I'm going to keep reading my favorite blogs just like before, but I won't be blogging for awhile.

Here's to a new life.

30 July 2012


I don't have any outfit photos for you today...or for the last week. The last few days have been CRAZY. I've been back and forth between Houston and Austin, unpacking our new place and getting aquatinted with our neighborhood in Houston while still working at Texas Monthly in Austin.

Fortunately, I'll officially be living in Houston by the end of this week.

Unfortunately, all our stuff is still in boxes in our new apartment AND we're potty training Charles.

I may have some good news in the next few days. And I promise I'll get some outfits posted as soon as I'm in one place for more than 48 hours. Stay tuned!

Yesterday night, I was cleaning out my closet and made the mistake of trying on a pair of jeans I hadn't worn since last summer. Mind you, they're skinny, non-stretchy, white jeans and I've been drinking beer and eating fast food all weekend (don't judge me). Anyway, I got the jeans up to my hips and they felt TIGHT. I have no idea how I ever managed to get them on before. I successfully squeezed myself into them, but it was not a pretty sight.

Although it didn't make me break down and cry, it got me thinking about how lazy I've been in the last year. At this time last year, I was practicing yoga 5-6 times a week. I stopped sometime during the fall semester and subsequently gained about 10 lbs., which is a lot of weight on my 5'1" frame. When you add in not-so-healthy eating and drinking decisions, I'm not that surprised.

Bottom line--I'm not saying I'm fat by any means. I'm quite proud of my body (here's proof!) and all that it can do, but I should probably be treating it a little nicer. I feel comfortable in all my clothes except those damn jeans and it's time for a change.
