Special Occasion Lilly

Lilly Pulitzer has been there for me a lot, but especially in the last year.  I had several major life events and what else to wear but Lilly!

I wore this to my nursing pinning ceremony

This is the dress I wore to my graduation

Zach's cat likes it too.  It's yellow seersucker!
I wore this to my brother's awards ceremony.
He graduated high school with a 4.0
I wore this to his graduation.

The detail on the bottom of the dress

Wedding Shoes!
Zach got me this for Christmas, so I wore it
Christmas Day! 

There's one more I want to add, but I can't get it to go in the right place so I guess I'll put it in the next post.

The shelves are complete! YAY!

Look there's even space for a couple more pairs!
The husband (Zach) counted and there are 72 pairs on the shelves plus 5 pairs are still downstairs and a whole basket of flat sandals.  Also, there is a pair of Burberry flats at the cobbler that go in that empty space on the shelf with the flats.  YAY! I'm sooooo happy!

My shelves still aren't done but I can't complain too much because I told my husband about the blog and he can read what I write about him now.  However, he is putting a new light fixture with a fan in our bathroom which is awesome because the ceiling will probably start falling off soon if we don't get a fan soon.  And, it's really cool that he can do things like wire a light and fan without having to call someone to do it and pay a ton of money.  But, I can't wait till my shoe shelve are done because I have a ton of shoes!


 I counted about 70 pairs plus I have a bunch of sandals that are in a pull out drawer in my closet.  Also, I finally took some picutres of my closet.  All of the shoe pictures except the last one were in the closet.  It has hardwood floors but the people who lived here before us (among other questionable design projects) decided to paint them.  Apparently, you can't just paint a floor unless you use special paint and do a lot of sanding and stuff and as you can see in the pictures they did not do that.  Anyway, here are some more of the closet.  My husband pretty much made the whole thing.

My cats usually run from the camera but they were photogenic today

After the shoe shelves go up I plan on moving most of these bags to  the book shelves holding shoes now.

It's really unusual because of my work schedule for my Monday to actually fall on Monday.  I almost always work on Sunday which makes Monday my Tuesday.

I'm super excited because I have 14 views of my blog! I'm having fun writing it and someone out there is actually reading it!

I charged my camera but my closet isn't done yet so I don't have any pictures to post today.

so sorry

I swear I'm not just a slacker.  I got back from vacation and my computer wouldn't turn on.  It's old.  I got it the summer before I started college.  I love it and I'm sad but I think it's time to move on, and for some reason my husband really wants me to get one of those little netbooks so I think I'm going to get this one:

It's pink and pretty cheap and the husband's sister has one that's the same but boring black and she loves it.  She drops it all the time and it's still going strong.

Ok, so on to more important news... I got some cute things on vacation in Charleston and some great deals!

I got this shirt for like $28 which is about half off and it's cuter on than this picture makes it look 

same story with this one

I can't get a good image of this one, and even though my computer is now working.  My camera is still not charged.  BUT!!! I got this one for $17 and it's darling! I love it! I can't wait till spring to wear it.

I got some other cute things but it's been close to a month now so I can't remember a single one of them.

In other news:  my husband is awesome!  He's making my shoe shelves today after they are complete I will try to get my camera working and then I'll post pictures.  My closet is awesome; my husband made it for me out of what should have been a bedroom or something.  

Also, he got me this really cute purse that I've been wanting for Valentine's Day and a massage!

It's this one but in "British Tan"

My husband keeps almost catching me blogging so I'm done for today.  Also, I plugged in my camera so I can take pictures next time!
