What I'm Loving Wednesday

Hello friends! I hope your week is going well so far! It has been way, way too long! Since I went back to work and school, life has been hectic to say the least and I have already had a few teeny meltdowns...  Aye, Aye, Aye!

Today I want to write about things that I love and that make me happy:

Hershey Pumpkin Spice Kisses

 Oh my goodness. I found these bad boys at Target tonight and they are like a party in your mouth (yes, I just said that)! So good and yet another reason to love fall.

Dance Moms

I'm sure most of you have seen this show already because it has become huge, but if you haven't you are in luck; it's on Wednesdays on Lifetime and you really need to tune in. It is cra-zy! From the over bearing/semi verbally abusive choreographer Abby Lee to the borderline nuts-o moms living vicariously through their daughters, this show is one addicting slice of reality T.V. Plus, the dancing is pretty impressive. I can't get enough.


One of my favorite accessories! Love that it adds so much to an outfit and keeps you warm at the same time! I heart this one from JCrew.

Essie "Carry On"

I am really loving purple this fall, and this is the prettiest purple polish! It goes on a little darker than what it looks like in the picture. 

Cupcake Wars

At the school I work at, they have fun activities every Friday for the kids. I got to plan one for this Friday that I will facilitate along with another Educational Assistant. We'll be doing "Cupcake Wars" with the kids for our activity- just like the T.V. show on Food Network! So far, 75 kids have signed up- I can't wait! Our theme is Disney Movies-I can't believe I get paid to do this stuff!


This may or may not be on my wish list at Jared...

What are you loving today?

School is now in session

Today was the first day of school for the students where I work- I forgot how much I loved my job! It was so good to see all of their smiling faces and hear about their summers. 

Speaking of summer vacation; I had to answer "What did you do this summer?" about 75 times. I was horrified as I thought back and working on my blog was one of the only things that came to mind. Oops. I mean, I did go to a lot of weddings, which was fun (I love going to weddings) and I did get to read a lot, but holy buckets- I realized what a lame summer I had!

 I hope you all had a great holiday weekend! Mine was jam packed from Fri-Sunday. We had barbeques both Saturday and Sunday and I ate WAY too much. Time to amp up my work out...

One of my best friends got married on Friday. She and I met in 7th grade in Science class and became fast friends.  She's actually more like a sister to me. I'm so happy for her and her new hubby, but I couldn't help but feel a little sad. It's always a little bittersweet when your friends get married...


Anyways, funny story: My boyfriend and I decided that we want to get back in the habit of going to church, so we picked one we liked in Saint Paul, and headed there for 9:00 mass on Sunday morning. Well, being the morning people that we are (totally kidding), we got there at about 9:03. So, we found a seat in the back of the church and tried our best to sneak in. After a minute or so something just didn't seem right- we then realized went to the WRONG church, and the mass we were at had started at 8:15... You have no idea how embarrassing this was! I wonder what everyone around us thought as we snuck in at the very END of mass. Oh well, God knows we tried. We'll try again this Sunday. I swear my boyfriend is the only other person in the world as clueless as I am sometimes... Match made in heaven, we are!

Yesterday I put up most all of my fall decorations! I was very excited about this, needless to say...

I hope all of your weeks are off to a great start!

It's OK Thursday

Hello ladies! Hope you are all having a wonderful week so far! Friday is just around the corner-Woohoo! Anyways, I decided to link up with Amber over at Brunch With Amber for today's "It's OK Thursday". If you haven't stopped by her blog you should! She's awesome. 

It's OK...
  • To be slightly addicted to blogging and/or reading other blogs
  • To eat a bag of M&M's a week
  • To engage in a little retail therapy, even when your bank account says otherwise
  • To hate sleeping alone
  • To be completely addicted to coffee
  • To not know what you want to do when you grow up. Even at 27
  • To love the school supply isle at Target 
  • To buy the same top in multiple colors if you really love it
  • To honk at someone when they cut you off
  • To blog when you should be doing your homework
  • To be indecisive
  • To dance when you're getting ready in the morning
  • To decorate your house with kitschy holiday decorations 
  • To not make your bed everyday

I hope you all have a fabulous Friday!
