washington beauty









I spent my day off wandering around Spokane snapping pictures with my new camera.  These views are breath taking, South Hill is gorgeous during this time of year.  But I cannot wait until we get a heavy snow, I love the snow on the ground.

comfort is k e y






guess who is finally back at posting blog posts. . .  This girl right here!

I promise, there will be some consistency at posting more.  I finally gave in and bought a Nikon D 3200, it was on super sale at Target during Black Friday.  I am still practicing with the different angles with my camera on it's tripod. This camera will be a huge reminder to snap pictures of my outfits and all of the gorgeousness in Washington.  

plaid shirts have become an everyday wear on my days offs.  the best ones are found in the target men's department, they are cute, comfy, & warm.  plaid shirts are the best lazy basics.

100 happy days challenge

The holidays are slowly but surely approaching us, this might be the retail side of me with prepping so early.  I absolutely love the holidays.  These next few months are my favorite months of the year.  

This year is a little different, I won't be in North Florida for the holidays for the first time in 24 years.

For pre -planning for holiday homesickness, I am going to do the 100 happy day challenge.  This challenge is to submit a picture on any social media site of what makes you happy for 100 days straight.  I will be posting my pictures on my instagram | follow along at @lburnam5

Check out their website, if you want to complete this challenge too!

I want to state that I am very happy, but homesickness tends to hit me the hardest during the holidays.

because you're mine, I walk the line

People have special talents about them, which make them awesome in their own little way.  Come to find out, Cody, is the best at call in radio shows.  He calls, plays a game, & wins .. every single time.  It amazes me, since I have never won anything.  

This past week, he won tickets to a Johnny Cash cover band, Cash'd Out.  One, I love Johnny Cash & two, I love any reason to wear an all black outfit.  We had a great time at the concert, it was little weird because we were the youngest people there.  But we enjoyed the concert, even if it was a cover band playing my favorite hits by Johnny Cash.

an after work outfit






Last night, was date night with Cody.  We went to our favorite restaurant, Waddell's, to eat & drink.  Our date nights aren't really nights, we are more of late afternoon dinner eaters.  After working for 8 hours in red & khaki, I have like 15 minutes to get ready.  

With that being said, I try to cut some time by, wearing my blouse that I wore to work.  Yesterday, it was this shirt.   I am that girl who wears red cardigans & cute blouses.  This is how I deal with wearing red & khaki every day.  I came home and threw on this peach colored shirt over my tee shirt.  Since I don't live in Florida, I have no tan, I was pretty nervous to wear this top with my pale skin & blonde hair.  But I did it anyway, and guess what, no one gave me any weird stares. 

Plus, these two colors shouldn't look good together but they do and I like it.

the florida state university

I hope everyone enjoyed that lovely chant as they opened up this page.  It is the best sound in the entire world to hear from 82,000 people.  

I grew up on Florida State football.  
I love Florida State football.  
I am very passionate about Florida State football.

These things might sound weird coming from a girl, but I was raised by a man who loved this team more than life its self.  This man didn't have any sons to share this love with, so his two daughters got this freakishly weird love of college football.  

This man is my dad.

Even though my dad cannot enjoy the game like he use to, I like to think that we carry on that small tradition.  This is for you dad, your two little girls, acting like you; yelling at the television screen for bad calls, smack talking to florida & miami fans, & always believing in our team no matter what the situation.

five things to accomplish ...

... for the last week of september.. 

September has come & gone too fast, due to the fact that I was in Florida for 10 days.  I do have a check list of things to accomplish before the end of this week!  Fingers crossed, I can get all of it done.

1. Bake Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls.  I am not a cook but I have been craving a sweet snack, so we will see if I can make them just as good as the Pioneer Woman bakes them.

2. Try out the No Lie Brewery with Cody

3. Buy this, this, & dream about buying this.

4. Decorate the trailer in fall decorations,  I am using this as inspiration.

5. And jam out to this song.. Yes, I am a Taylor Swift fan, please hold your judgment

Have an awesome Monday, people!!

magic kingdom fun

When I was planning out my trip home, my mamma mentioned a trip to Magic Kingdom for the day,  & I was all in for the adventure!    Magic Kingdom has to be the happiest place in the world.  While walking into the park, my mamma, started jumping around & yelling with excitement.. I mean can you tell where I get this love of Magic Kingdom from..??

I will say fall in Florida, only happens like 1 day out of the month of September, I have pictures to prove this.  And the day we went down to visit Magic Kingdom, it was HOT & HUMID.  With that being said, my hair ended up in a top bun.

 However, the plus side is, Magic Kingdom has the prettiest fall decorations.











I am going to leave you with this awesome quote from the man himself.. Walt Disney.

"All of our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them."

annual best friend trip

Once a year me & my three best friends make a trip down to St. Augustine to shop, eat, & chat about anything and everything.  When I say my best friends, I mean my best friends, we have been friends since we were in diapers.  As a group, we can be super supportive and then turn around to be brutally honest, I think this is the best kind of friendship.

We have done this trip for about three years now, and every year is usually the same but we enjoy this beautiful little town & our friendship that continues to grow.  I love these girls so much & I can't wait until next year.  









I made them snap a quick outfit picture of me!
