A few of my favorite things: Fall Edition.

It's the most wonderful time of the year.... FALL! Yes, I love, love, love this season! I actually do think that Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, but I can't help falling in love with Fall. Here's why:

1. Pumpkin Pie scented candles. I absolutely love pumpkin pie! I know it's a little bit too early for Thanksgiving dinner, but hey if I can't eat it... I'll just smell it!

2. Pumpkin everything. Who am I kidding right? I can't just limited it to candles! I recently had the pumpkin spice frappuccino from Starbucks, and oh my! It was amazing! I want to try the pumpkin spice latte next.

3. Boots, tights, and sweaters. Fall weather is perfect. Not too hot. Not too cold. Just cool enough for you to bust out the boots, tights, and sweaters and not look ridiculous.

4. Fall colors. Today I was majorly diggin' Fall colors. I don't have much orange in my closet, but I'm looking to change that this fall.

P.S. I love my Minnetonka Mocs. <3
5. Goofing around with costumes at Target. Yesterday my mom, hubby, and I were at Target and I could resist picking up these glasses! My mom happened to start the fun by putting on a masquerade mask, and then the fun started from there. Ah, fun times.
So what are you favorite things about Fall? :)

Tuesday's grey and Wednesday too.

I don't know why, but I have "Friday I'm In Love" by The Cure stuck in my head. I must want it to be Friday really bad. Either way, today is not Friday. It is Tuesday and I am loving it! So Tuesday I'm In Love it is!

Today I got a very early start to my day. I woke up at 5:00 A.M. I think I've mentioned on another post how much I love waking up really early. It puts me in a better mood when I wake up early. So I woke up, made a few bows, and cleaned a bit. Got all spiffy. Then I had a little coffee date in the kitchen with my mom. She's the best coffee date and the best coffee maker as well. Then errands, errands, errands.

The rest of my day will consist of pure relaxation and preparation for an Interview I have tomorrow. Wish me luck, loves! I have been on the job hunt since May when I graduated. Lets hope something comes up! I also thought I would mention how nice it feels to update my blog more often. I love seeing all of your ladies' posts! You all inspire me so much! I hope I can do the same for some of you too!

Starry Sunday.

Hello all! I hope you all had a great weekend! I sure did. Yesterday was Sunday, and Sunday's are usually the most peaceful days of each week. I spent the morning doing some major cleaning and then spent the afternoon with the family. Family time is always the best. It's something special when we all get together. It's always great to see my little nephew, and see how much he's grown. Love that little guy!

With this weight loss business I have been wearing a lot of my older clothes that didn't fit anymore. It's a really nice feeling when old jeans fit! I cleaned out my closet as well, and got rid of soooo many things that I hadn't worn in decades! (Okay maybe not decades because I've only been alive for two decades, but you know what I mean!) It is funny how many different styles were in those bags! I've been through a lot of different phases... I could have been diagnosed with multiple personalities if someone were to look through me closet before! :P

Well here are a few things I hadn't worn in a while.

Dress: H&M
Belt: Wal-Mart
Shoes: American Eagle

Accomplishing goals is the best. I need to make a new list of goals. I think I am getting addicted to this. :P

Well I hope you all have a great Monday! <3

Hello, anybody home?

Hello, everyone! Or should I say anyone? I don't blame anyone for not coming to see me here, because I have been such a bad blogger! I certainly have missed this little corner of the World Wide Web though. My excuse is life. Life has been quite hectic in every way lately... Physically and emotionally.

Physically, because I have been working on a healthier lifestyle. I've been practicing the act of eating right and exercising which I hadn't done in so long! I've lost 8 pounds because of it! It doesn't seem like a lot, but I feel so much better. I've been learning so much about nutrition too. I've been going green and it feels so good! It's really not as bad as I thought it would be. Finding healthy foods to eat and staying active is so much fun. I was so used to spending all of my free time in front of a television. Now I do fun things like go on bike rides, and sweat my butt off on my elliptical machine. My husband has done dramatically awesome progress though! He lost 40 pounds! I'm really proud of him. He is one of the most determined and amazing people I know. I love him. <3

Emotionally, I have been trying to stay positive even though the going can get tough sometimes. I have been a worry bug since the day I was born, but recently I have been realizing that worrying fixes nothing at all. Doing something does. So I try my best in everything that I do. That is all I can do. I also have a great God who is by my side at all times. I repeat this verse in my head: "I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me." - Phillippians 4:13. God is with me, and I have nothing to fear. He is the only one who can lead me through the perfect path.

I feel like I've been doing lots of growing. Growing hurts, but MUST happen. So lets do this thing!

Well today is Saturday and of course that means it is a fun day! I didn't do much, but it didn't make it any less fun. And of course I dressed up to hang out at home. Being home is definitely a high-heel worthy event!

I also have a new addiction: sewing! I bought a cheap little sewing machine at Joann's around two weeks ago, and I love it! I've been making bows like crazy! I even made a little crop top for myself. Thank God for the lack of 8 pounds or I may look crazy in this shirt. I still look kinda crazy because... I am crazy.

Well I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! As wonderful as all of you are! I will try to update more often. I missed you all way too much! Okay, bye! <3
