Saturday, I love you.

I can’t think of a day I love more than Saturday. It’s a time to do what you want and have fun after a long week, and let me tell you it’s been a long week. Whether it’s watching movies on the couch all afternoon or being outside, my heart belongs to Saturday. This morning when I woke up I began binge watching Ghost Whisperer (my favorite show) since I have to finish a whole season in one week since Netflix is getting rid of it…boooo. If you haven’t watched it before I highly recommend it, but since Netflix is getting rid of it in less than a week it might be a heart breaker. This Saturday we also had to do some major grocery shopping since there was absolutely nothing left in our house since Mama had been gone (my dad and I are the worst, I know). So when in Ottumwa on a Saturday you simply can’t pass up a Graham’s trip so of course I got my favorite, chocolate with sprinkles. So worth the diet buster. I have also been working on a little DIY project today of redoing my mama’s gross orange toad stool from like the 80s. I love the 80s as you all know, but this is one thing that needed an upgrade. I’m sharing before and after pictures as I think it turned out pretty well, along with supplies and tips! All in all it’s been a pretty successful Saturday. Sporting my new shorts or as I like to refer to them as my “make America great again shorts” I’m feeling patriotic today. I will definitely be wearing these come the Fourth in a couple weeks. Anyone have a Make America Great Again hat I can borrow? Until then,

This shirt I scored on sale last summer at American Eagle. It’s super soft and comfy, but I warn you it is cut like a crop top so I sized up to be able to tie it as well.


Love love love these shorts. My very sweet and loving mama brought these back for me from her recent trip to San Diego. They are from Francesca’s so I’m sure you can find them online. I am now calling these the MAGA shorts, woo go Trump!


I have had these shoes for quite some time and ordered them from a Delia’s catalog… is that even still a thing?? But they are Keds, which is definitely still a thing and will never go out of style! Super cute and comfy.


I have had pretty rotten luck with sunglasses lately. I had my Raybans for 3 years before they got broke by my cat! ugh so sad. But then I also recently broke my Quay sunnies. I just about gave up but scored these cuties for only $15 at American Eagle.


My new favorite lip color is this bright reddish orangish matte lip color by Anastasia. It’s just the right pop of color for the summer. I recently got this at Sephora and the color is Spicy.


The before. Sorry mom, but this is one orange that needs to be left in the 80s…


The finished product. Turned out to be a lot cuter and much more chic. Now if only I can keep it clean.


Staple Gun


Old furniture

This turned out to be pretty simple. I went to Hobby Lobby and found some fabric that I thought was adorable. After purchasing a heavy duty staple gun and staples. I was about all set. First I pinned the fabric around the stool exactly where I wanted it. I then stapled it in and then removed the extra pins. I did the base first then the top. Since the fur was a little thicker it became a tad more difficult, but it turned out great!

Hope y’all are having a great weekend!
