Where I'd Rather Be Wednesday

This Wednesday I'd rather be... in Colorado!

I'm feeling outdoors-y today. I could totally go fro a hike or a gondola ride to the top of a mountain. Just being outside would be a nice change of scenery than being stuck in front of a computer for 8+ hrs. Some clean air & starry nights always make things better!

Autumn & College Football

Autumn is coming! It seems like everyone is back to mom's a teacher, the little bro is in high school, and the BF is back in law school. New clothes are in stores with long sleeves and soft textures (my fav!). And to top all of this, college football is just around the corner!!! And from what the BF tells me, this is Baylor's season! We have the chance of going bowling...wahoo! (In case you're confused by the sudden love for Baylor getting to a bowl game, remember that this would include the chance for me & the BF to go on a trip!) This season we have season tickets to all the Baylor home games, which will mean many day trips to the great city of Waco. I really hope this will be a great, winning season for those Bears...because it will just make the BF's year :) Sic 'em Bears!!!!!!!!

10 Things You May Not Know About Me!

1. When at the grocery store (or any other store with carts), I always put the cart back in it's proper location. I cannot stand when I see carts randomly around parking lots!

2. I have been scared of elevators since I saw Speed back in the '90s. Every time I step into one, I think that it is going to drop. (Oh and BTW, I work on the 16th this is everyday)

3. I check US Weekly, WFAA, and CNN at least once every hour. I secretly have always wanted a job that is tied to the news, but I don't think that is coming anytime soon..

4. I have seen Sleepless in Seattle over 100 times. I could repeat it to you word for word...I could even repeat the special commentary by the director & co-writer Nora Ephron. If you have a question about the movie, I probably know the answer to it.

5. Even though I say I hate confrontation, I know that usually it is better to has out the situation and come to a resolution then just do nothing. (Something I learned from my bestie, AMP)

6. I am convinced I am going to live in Europe for just a little bit of my life. The way my life is right now, nothing is falling in place for that, but I still dream of that...

7. I love that fact that I have lived in the South for all of my life. And I really, really want a Southern accent. I hope my kids have one!

8. I don't think I have ever said no to trying a new food...I am very open minded in that aspect.

9. Deep-down I am very organized, it's just the most seen part where I become messy. If you look under the pile on mail on the table, you will see that I dust every 2 weeks.

10. When I get bored, I plan trips. I have like a million trips planned. If you ever need trip suggestions, let me know!

Shopping Update

Ok, I admit...I bought something! A friend of mine had a jewelry show, she is selling Stella & Dot jewelry...and I fell in love... with a beautiful pearl necklace! It is very versatile and I can wear it with everything. So one slip-up this week. But you should be proud because I went into Target and I did not buy anything other than the facial cleanser that I went in for. (And did I mention that it's tax free weekend!)

Here is the pic of my new necklace!
And if I was not on my shopping sabbatical, I would totally consider buying these oh so cute shoes! (J.Crew, of course)

Where I'd Rather Be Wednesday

This Wednesday I'd rather be..... by the pool!!
No specific location...but I would prefer a hotel pool, so I can be pampered! With a cool drink, some gossip mags, a quick dip every now and then, and 45 would be dandy :)

One Month, No Shopping

So I have decided to challenge myself...I am not going to shop for clothes, accessories, jewelry, decorations for the apartment, or shoes for one month starting TODAY. I know I can do it...but the email from J.Crew for an extra 20% off their sale items was soo tempting!! I can't think of anything I need (ie- dress for wedding or clothes for a trip) for the next month, so I should be good, right? I can totally live with what I have in my closets & dressers (yes, both are plural) for one month with nothing new....totally....

I'll keep all of you readers updated on how this goes! (I already can't wait till Sept. 18th!!!)
