Maid Braids

Even though I posted two blogs yesterday, I feel like this is my first actual blog post of the week.  Hello everyone!  How was your weekend?  How was your Monday?  Yesterday didn't really feel like Monday, it felt like a different day of the week entirely, and whatever day that was, oh it was rough.

After reading an article about braids on the Ready Made blog, I then surfed over to their youtube suggestions as far as braiding tutorials went, and found me a milkmaid braid tutorial.  I thought it looked really cute, but it totally weirds me out not having a ton of hair around my face.  I will be honest, I am totally narcissistic about my sometimes.

I have so much good news to share though.  First off, I am working with a few other bloggers here in Nashville to get a fashion blogger meet up going.  If you would like to be involved, just let me know either though a comment or on Twitter.  Secondly, my dear friend Tori got accepted to the School of Visual Arts in NYC for her graduate studies (beyond thrilled!!!!!).  Third, I won a cook book from Ready Made, Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution (score).  This next one I'm going to share with you pertains to yesterday's post; my mom has officially lost 50 pounds! 

Needless to say, today rocks.  And, totally means a celebration, in the form of mexican food in my belly (nom nom nom nom nom). 

Today's outfit is a little hint into what I've got going on for tomorrow.

    I did not know you had your nose pierced! So cute! Where do you get your nose studs? I need a new one for when I get to wear mine again - they don't really let you wear nose rings when you teach Kindergarten. :(

    Oh and I LOVE the hair and the outfit!
