Favorites Friday is SHOE-Tastic!

Hello love, Today I'm giving a special Shoes edition of Favorites Friday.
I have gathered pictures of shoes for a while now, and I think it's time to show you what I love!
Wild `n` fine
 They drive me wild!
So subtle, yet so loud!
I love 'em.

Tapestry Shoes

 They're so ugly-fied that they're pretty.
I can just see them with a below the knee skirt in muted colors and a wispy blouse on top.
They're so summer-in-old-England to me,
that I love them.
No matter what people could say. :-)
Blue and Creme
So shiny... So pretty.
So vintage inspired that I could die!
They're fab.
Really wonderful colors that could go with anything,
and a sensible enough looking shoe to be appropriate for anything!

Bowed Wedges

 These shoes (above) I could wear with about EVERY outfit I currently own.
Really! They're great! They have flair, are classy and look like they could go all day!


These are the kind of shoe that I would love to wear, but doubt that I could make the transition into.
I have broken the barrier half way by buying myself a pair of oxfords, but these are a whole new level for me.
I feel like they require skinny jeans.
and I have yet to breach that barrier. :-[

Maybe soon.
We'll see.
It'll all apart of my "young and empowered" stance in life.
I am on the edge of my twenties! not my sixties!
So why the heck shouldn't I join in some trends?!
I always tell myself that "when I loose the weight... I'll do this.. I'll do that"... but
will that ever happen?
I don't know.
I have yet to see it.

Sorry to leave you on such a down note! haha

Owl Wednesday

Today, is actually Wednesday...
Aren't you proud of me for really posting on the day I'm supposed to?
I am too.
Susan's Necklace
Why is it "Susan's"? Because Susan and Modcloth invented it, or something like that.
I'm not sure.
But I like it because it's a very 'native' print with the fancier owl...
so they 'go'.

Owly thingy-ma-bobber
So for a while, I thought that It was important to say the exact names of the things that I'm referring to on my OW posts, but really... who cares? I put the links below the pictures, and that should be enough... right?
Yeah... I think so too.
So that's what I'm going to do from now on.
who cares about the names?!
I don't.


Pocket-watch Necklace OF AWESOME!
This watch/necklace is a thing of great beauty!
I mean COME ON!
I love it to death, and I would totally wear it. I know that it's not "owl" anything,
and therefore should technically go on my "favorites Friday" post, but I just couldn't keep this one mum!

Fun story:
I was interpreting yesterday at a middleschool, and I saw this hearing boy start to fingerspell to himself (that's spelling in Sign Language... it's called fingerspelling)... and I watched him for a minute as he slowely spelled out "Y-O-U A-R-E A B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L..." and then he was called away to something else...
but I would love to know who that message was meant for, who was he practicing for? It was adorable and it warmed my heart to see it. :-)

Happy Wednesday!

Owl Wednesday

Hey, It's Owl Wednesday!
Wait... it's not wednesday anymore?
Who did that?

Oh gosh, my Wednesday was SOOO hectic.
Thirst in Flight Tumbler
So. Freakin. Cute.

Up to Parliament Top

Yeah, this tunic is... I'm not sure if I like it or not.
It's not too WHAAYAAAM! in your face owl,
 but it's still a pretty busy print with all of the owls happening...

I like the sleeves.
I'd prolly wear it.

Natural Delight Lamp

It has a little bird scene on it!


The Carry-Owl Tote
As soon as I saw this tote, I was hooked.
It's just so classic looking, really pretty,
looks like leather... and it has a really subtle owl stiched on the front
I would love this baby to death and never let it go...
I mean, come on!

Sept 18th of my life.

Hello Darlings,

lets discuss what's been happening lately.

It seems like a month since my vacation. And already I'm ready for another one. :-)

I have a satisfactory number of interpreting jobs this week. I am very pleased and blessed.

Just because I don't have 42 kajillian jobs this week doesn't mean that I won't be busy.

Tomorrow I have an all day job, then at night Cara is coming over for jogging/pilates (we'll just do one of those options... no need to worry about over exercising when I'm involved ;-))

Then Tuesday I have my first ever(!) freelance job, I'm excited about this one because it means that it's the real start of my own adventure. I get/have to do the billing all on my own, and it'll be AMAZING!

ALSO, Tuesday is our third Two Nerd Birds video done by the dear Cara! I can't wait to see what you do with it this week :-D

Tuesday nights I also have been babysitting for some children from church, whom I'm sure you've heard me mention (the three year old from my last post... yeah the one with the Owl jacket!)

Wednesday I will do a "school" job again, for Kindergarten, and I love that age kid, so I expect to have fun there. I just have to remember to wear flats!

Wednesday Night I have our church's Praise Team practice (because occasionally I sing.... yeah.) then after that, another night of jogging with my TNB cohort.

Wednesday... gosh, a lot of things happen on wednesday! But also on that day I have to figure out my Owl Wednesday post!

Thursday is quieter, with only MY TNB POST! Woot woot!

Friday is Favorites Friday here on my blog, and then it's the glorious weekend!

Have you had enough of my little life updates? No?
Then Follow me on Twitter to hear some more through out the week! (@TerpLiddy)

Have a great Monday!

Owl Wednesday

I almost forgot to do today's post of Owl Wednesday!
That would have been awful, I know. I was babysitting yesterday and the three year old said that she needed to grab her jacket... so we went to their car to get it, and what does she come up with? An OWL COVERED HOODIE! How cool is that! I told her just how much I loved it. hehe.

Now, because it's Owl Wednesday, I feel the need to confess something...
I lost my owl ring.
I'm devastated too!

So I went looking for another one, hoping that I could find EXACTLY THE SAME ONE...
but alas! I could not!

On with the show!

(do you think I use too many "!!!"? hmmm)

Spec-ulative Species Ring
Cara, you and I found this ring at another store, but it had an adjustable size,
and I don't like that kind of ring... it just feels cheap to me! But this one from MC isn't that way, and I love it!

Hoo, Me?

Up close on the owl detail
Feathered Friend
This ring is AS CUTE AS A BUTTON and I hope to get it and finally replace the hole in my heart that was left by my other owl ring's disappearance. :-D
*sigh* the one thing I don't appreciate is how Charlotte Russe's rings are sorted. They're not.
And even though the site says that this ring is in stock... I didn't see it at the store earlier this week.
So do I risk not finding it, and drive all the way out there?
or do I pay like $6 more and get it shipped to my house?
Decisions decisions.

Oh, and this week, Cara and I have started Two Nerd Birds.
It's an Youtube Vlog between the two of us.
It acctually looks like it's going to turn out pretty cool! So go check it out, HERE!
We vlog on Tuesdays and Thursdays weekly, so please check it out and comment on our stuff!

The Liberation of a Life

I have had a few good days recently.
I have been inspired.
Dame Helen Mirren has been a great aid to me.
Along with a two foot high pile of Seventeen Magazine, Glamour, Vogue... etc.

I had been feeling down on myself,
Like I was a failure, my life was at a stand still,
Nearly 20 and going nowhere fast.
No boyfriend, no real "place"
Not the best place I've been in life.

I'm coming to learn and embrace that I am my own woman.
I am going to make my 20s into the best ten years of my life (so far)
I am young!
I am healthy, employed, free, I can do anything I want to.
I don't have to conform myself to what I think other people want to see.
If I'm pleasing God, then I'm set!

I think of my projects, like this blog,
and things like my appearance
my dress
my makeup choices

and I see that I've been afraid to do what I WANT TO DO

who cares if that shirt doesn't "fit my style" of "sweet and preppy" ?!
If that shirt is Bad Ass and I love it! then I'll wear it, because it makes me happy.
I am free to be as eclectic as I want!
Because it's my personality and my style and my choices.

I don't have to make this blog fit anyone else's standards either.
I signed no agreement when I created it,
saying that I would stick to one topic, and follow that topic and it's group's style to a T

I am my own.
I am free.
I am me.

and I am liberated from my own fears.

I hope that you are too.
