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.
