The Hubby's big 3-0

I know it's been awhile since I posted. I wanted to start doing it again though, I know not many people view this but I still have a lot of fun writing this blog. I have been dieting the last few months and I have lost almost 50 pounds, I have a new found spark of confidence and I have been dressing up a lot more. Not that you have to lose weight to have confidence. Whatever size YOU want to be is beautiful. 

November 12th was my husband's big 3-0 so this is what I wore out to dinner with him and my in-laws. I got the red dress on clearance at Torrid and actually only paid $9.46 because I also had a coupon for it, so not too shabby! The cardigan is also from Torrid and has a lace backing, the shoes are from payless and the tights are just Walmart.

Whoa new post

Wow, I can't believe the last time I posted was back in November. Not a while heck of a lot has changed since then. I did lighten my hair.

Here is a new OOTD, the weather here has been so weird. One day its 80 and humid the next it's 40 and frigid. Today it was rather cold.

I'm really going to try and get better with posting, I know I love seeing outfit posts on other people's blogs, infact that's why I made this one :-)

Turkey extravaganza!

With Thanksgiving being Thursday and me deciding to cook a 20pd turkey for four people, I had a LOT of leftovers, and I mean A LOT. So I have been trying to think up different ways to use up that turkey, so tonight I made turkey and potato croquettes!

I just took some left over turkey and left over cheese and bacon mashed potatoes and mixed them together and formed them into balls. I took those and rolled them in egg and then into a flour and panko mixture which I had seasoned with salt,pepper,onion and garlic powder and then I pan fried them in just a little of oil and DONE. It was really fast and pretty darn good, even the picky husband ate it!

I think I will be making gingerbread cookies this week too because the husband has been asking for them recently, I made a smaller batch of them a week ago but they all got eaten up.

I hope everyone had a delicious Thanksgiving! :-)

Plus Size art

As i've mentioned, not only am I plus size girl myself but I am an artist and I very much love to draw full figured characters. I won't share much of my art on here but here is one of my projects.

This drawing was inspired by Miss Piggy, one of my favorite characters of all times. I just thought it was a fun little image to draw. I drew it, inked it and than scanned it into PhotoShop for coloring.



I love OOTD's so I thought I would post my own! Excuse the bad coloring, it was taken with my phone and
due to the lighting everything went all orange. :-( Lol and of course excuse the soda boxes, I was taking the trash out. 

Shrug - Fashion Bug

Purple Cami - Old Navy

Jeggings - Avenue

Boots - Avenue

I have actually been wearing this outfit quite a bit, I think it looks pretty nice and it's very comfortable. Those boots are one of my absolute favorite things this winter!

Here is a link to the boots if anyone is interested:

New to bloggin!

Hello to anyone that is reading this!

    I don't know how often I will be updating this site, I mainly made it just so I could be apart of the curvy community and talk to other curvy fashion bloggers. There isn't much to say really about me, i'm a wife and an art student and I love fashion :-)
