#WCW/Lady Leopard – To My Mom

We have all seen the #WCW posts on social media, and I have decided to take a much more positive approach with it. 

Throughout 2016 you will see me feature various women who are inspiring, motivational, and act as great role models to other women.

These women will be family, friends, or well known women I find to be a true beauty of the world. These women will be also be tagged as a “Lady Leopard”, creating a force of incredible woman all over the world.

  

My First Lady Leopard is my mom, Heidi.

I could probably go on and practically write a book on all of the awesome things this woman has done. (Besides raising three fabulous girls!) I will focus on the most recent of her accomplishments and spare you hours of reading.

For the last 17 years my mom has worked as a CMA for an Orthopedic Surgeon.  A little over two years ago, they stepped their schedule back to around part time. It was at this time that my mom decided to hit the books and start a new career. 

She remained working with this wonderful Doctor, and during her days off studied hard and successfully received her Real Estate License. After this she joined an amazing real estate office and was welcomed with open arms. 

Since then she worked hard at two jobs, continuing to grow her real estate business, and help her Doctor treat patients. 

She also remained an awesome wife to my Dad, and still laughed through his funny antics. (And kept her own sense of humor, I might add. Please don’t be mad about the pic mom, it’s too funny!)

   
 

 
 

She is an amazing Grammy to all her granddaughters, and is still there for her daughters wherever we need.

 
  
 
  

After 17 years, and an amazing work relationship with this Doctor, the time has come for him to retire. The time has also come, for my mom to fully follow her new her career path.

Tomorrow, she and her Doctor will take their last walk through the office. She will wake up in 2016 able to focus all of her attention on her new dream. She will no longer work two jobs, or “wear two hats”, she will be a Real Estate Agent. 

My mom is a great example of the C. S. Lewis quote:

  

I hope that my mom inspires you to fight for your dreams and reach your goals. Thank you mom, for being a Lady Leopard.

Holiday Look

  
This time of year is full of fun parties and get togethers. While some are a bit on the “fancier” side, others can be a little more casual.

I will hopefully start featuring this dress a lot more, as it can be worn many different ways. I wore it to a holiday party recently and took it a bit more to the “casual” side. 

Outfit Inspiration:

Raglan Shirt Sleeve Dress – White House Black Market

Tartan Blanket Scarf – NEIL Link on Amazon

Brown Riding Boots – Franco Sarto from Famous Footwear

Christmas Eve!

 

I can’t believe Christmas Eve is already here! I hope that you all have wonderful plans with family and friends.

This Holiday season, I just want to say how thankful I am for every person who follows me on any of my accounts, and engages with me website/pages.

You all mean so much to me! If you haven’t yet came across my Facebook page, I would be so grateful if you joined me there. 
If you already “Like” it, thank you! Please feel free to share it with anyone whom you think might enjoy it as well. 

Have a wonderful and safe season. 

Happy Holidays!

Holy moly! This time of year is so busy, and I feel so behind on posting. I hope you are all ready for the Holidays and will be able to spend a lot of with the ones you love.

We had a busy Saturday with two basketball games and a Christmas party, so I took that opportunity to get just a little bit fancy. 

I love a pair of fun pants, they really brighten up your day. This pair in particular are very comfortable, so I was able to stay in them all day without feeling irritated by the end of the night. 

Below is how I put this all together!
