So I got some pretty exciting news....well maybe not exciting for you, but definitely exciting for me!!! For the past 2 months Todd and I have been living by driving one car, and it has caused us to plan out our days ahead so that we both can get to work on time. Todd sold my car back in Arizona because the transmission was going out, and it was due for registration. Since the car wasn't worth fixing the transmission to pass registration we decided to sell my silver steed, and make Todd's car be our form of transportation. 

Anyone who knows me knew that I was wasn't happy about the decision since I like to work my day to my schedule, but I knew it had to be done. Since I have been selling Senegence for almost 4 months Todd decided that we can now buy a new car with our extra cash. YASSSSS!!!!! You guys, I am so excited!!!! With us having a second car again I can finally get back to my normal schedule so that I am not exhausted all the time with driving Todd to work at 5:30 am every day!!!

I know this has nothing to do with the linkup, but I am so freaking excited I had to write about it!!!! 

Anyways, since this week is free week post whatever outfit you want! I am excited to see what inspiration you have for me today :)

Good morning everyone!!! All I can say is thank goodness it's Friday because this girl is ready to utilize her weekend to just work!! This week has been kind of crazy (thus the irregular posting) between covering classes at Pure Barre, unpacking my place still, and editing some photography sessions. 

I wanted to stop by today to share with you one of my favorite outfits lately. I used to think that I couldn't pull off high waisted jeans, but as-per-usual something that I didn't think I would like I end up loving. I got these jeans few weeks ago at Topshop, and their petite line fits amazing!!! I didn't have to hem these jeans or take in the waist. YASSSS.......

I decided to pair my new obsession with this fun white tee from WHBM. The ruffle sleeves are a fun play on the classic tee, and adds a feminine touch to the outfit. You guys know I love a pop of color so what better way to do that other then with the accessories ;)

Todd officially completed his first week of his Oral Surgery program, and I can already tell that this is going to be a rough year for both of us. I didn't realize that he is going to be running on absolutely no sleep for a whole year! A WHOLE YEAR!!! If I were in his shoes I would have gotten sick by day three because this girl needs her sleep EVERY SINGLE DAY. 

I feel so grateful for his dedication to his program, and that he is willing to undergo a year of hell to accomplish what he needs to do to become an oral surgeon. If there was one thing that attracted me to Todd when we first started dating it was his drive because I needed someone in my life that was as equally driven as me. 

Our days start by dropping him off at the hospital around 5-5:30 am everyday, and then me driving back home to work. Lately I've been picking up some early morning classes at the three 
Dallas PB studios, and will usually drive straight to the studio once I leave the hospital. On the nights when Todd isn't on call (36 hour shift) I'll go pick him up at work around 6:30 pm, and let him sleep while I make dinner. During the day while my sweetie is off stitching people up I've been trying to unpack our house more, and do things around the house that will make life easier for him. This year is going to be all about adapting to our new situation, and learning how to enjoy the Dallas adventure when our time together is limited.

Top: J.Crew (SALE - extra 50% off using code HOORAY) / Skirt: Shein (only $15, and it comes in black and white too!) c/o / Bag: Gift (similar here) / Watch: Michael Kors / Shoes: Kate Spade (old similar here) / Lips: Pucker & Pout - Roseberry
Happy 4th of July everyone!!! As I have gotten older I have learned to love this holiday more every year, and appreciate how blessed I am to live in this country. With having my grandpa, father in law, and brother in law all being veterans of the military I feel so humbled, and grateful for them serving our country. 

This years 4th of July is going to be spent a little differently in the Edmunds household. Since Todd is going to be coming home from a 36 hour shift I highly doubt that he will want to do anything. While he's sleeping I'll be parading around the house with Django in our Americana apparel ;) 

I know all of you are going to have amazing 4th of July inspired outfits, and can't wait to see what you all link up this week :)

Featured Bloggers of the Week
I had to include A Slo Life for this weeks blogger feature because I personally own this dress, and it's one of my favs! It's seriously one of the most comfy dresses I own, and I get compliments on it whenever I wear it. I love how she kept this outfit summer casual by pairing this bright dress with nude shoes, and a nude bag. So pretty babe!

When I was scrolling through all of your amazing linkup posts, this amazing dress from Lipgloss and Lace caught my eye immediately! Everything about this outfit is absolute perfection from her bag all the way down to her nails! This makes me not want to be so lazy anymore, and actually take the time to paint my nails lol.

Settling In

Dress: Vici / Clutch: Vici / Bracelets: Baublebar here + here c/o + Stella Dot c/o / Necklace: Baublebar c/o / Ring: Baublebar c/o / Shoes: Old (similar here) / Lips: Pucker & Pout - Samon + Luv It
I told myself all last week that I had no excuse, and that my house had to be unpacked at the end of the week. 

Well..... 

It didn't happen. 

Even though we are still living elbow to elbow in boxes I keep telling myself that "Rome wasn't built in a day."If you watch my insta stories then you would of seen that I finally got around to unloading my office. Getting my office all set and organized is going to be key in getting myself back into my work routine. The reason why I did my office makeover last year (posts here) was so that I had a place to work from the brightest room in the house. 

I'm seriously so excited to get my life back in order, and get back into my work routine! 

In other news.... Todd started his first day at the hospital! Today will be his first day on call, and I won't see him for 36 hours. I'm so excited for him to be starting work, but kind of sad that I won't see for so long.
