The Friday Five 11.27.15

Happy Friday! I hope everyone is still in a turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie coma! I had an amazing Thanksgiving with Ted’s family and, by the time this is posted, will have already been amongst those crazy people that go shopping on Thanksgiving night (thank goodness for coffee and the “schedule post” feature, am I right!?) To everyone braving the crowds for blockbuster deals today, I hope you come out on the other side in one piece and with arms full of amazing, and extremely discounted, merchandise! And to those of you who rather just avoid…

10 Things I’m Thankful For

I don’t think I’m alone in saying that Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays! Lots of family coming together, The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade (which I have to watch every single year!) great food, and a TV schedule jam packed with football games…what’s not to love!? As cheesy as it sounds however, I also love that Thanksgiving is a time to step back and take inventory of all the blessings in my life. All too often we are focused on the voids in our life or what we don…

The Friday Five 11.20.15

I was a total outlaw and snuck candy into the movie theater (Fun fact: French Chews are made in Cincinnati! I was supporting my hometown, officer!) I love getting my monthly magazine subscriptions, but all the fun holiday catalogues making their way into my mailbox is like glitter icing on the cake! (Glitter icing is a thing, right!?) My cousin was super clutch and gifted me this free sample she received. My dry wintery skin thanks you more times than I can count! Just when you thought Kate Spade couldn’t get any cuter, you see how online orders…

Throw Back Thursday

“Throwback Thursday”, or #tbt as it is often abbreviated, is sort of becoming so┬átotally last year, I know, I know! Bear with me. I was uploading pictures for a blog post and realized just how many pictures I have on my computer (“just how many” is a number in the thousands) and that I could probably delete some (“some” is a number way less than a number in the thousands) I have a MAJOR problem deleting pictures. I am such a visual person and I love pictures. I’m always taking them…

White Distressed Jeans After Labor Day

I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love having little things to look forward to in life. It just makes the work week a bit more bearable. Lately, glancing at my Kate Spade agenda and my mobile calendar (yes, I use two forms of calendar because one just isn’t enough!) has made me so happy because I have so many fun little things planned! Date nights with Ted, Thanksgiving dinner, Black Friday shopping, coffee and lunch with friends, Christmas shopping with my mom, and most recently a movie date with my mom. We saw The…
