My Weekend In Review!

This is what I see when I roll over in the morning...
the sunrise...
over the lake and between the autumn trees.

Saturday I cleaned around the house then headed to Osage to do a little shopping.
I painted my nails with Rimmel "Pink Zinfandel" and then added a silver sparkle stripe to my ring finger.
I found some striping polish at Dollar General and it was totally worth it!

 Coach was having a 30% off sale... people went CRAY in there.
I should have taken a picture while I was inside.

I had an impromptu photoshoot with my friend, Shane. It's so handy having friends who are photographers!
 Outfit of the Day:
Grey and white striped Hollister longsleeve tee I found on clearance last year for $3.80 (STEAL!)
American Eagle skinny jeans
Ugg Bailey Button in Chestnut
Coat is from Victoria's Secret
 I used my deep waver for this "herr-do".

I got some crap at Marshall's and Ross but I forgot to take pics... a few sweater dresses, a backpack, some leggings, and a super cute dog water bowl for Bonz.

When I got home I realized it was Saturday night and I wasn't at a Halloween party, like a loser.
So I had my own Halloween party!

Trick or Treat,
Smell my Feet,
Give me something good to eat!

My mom made a delicious pot of chili that was spicy and amazeballs!

Meanwhile... in Joplin... Tyson went "grocery shopping".
Can't leave that man alone for longer than a few days or else the house turns in to a candy store.

Saturday night I was on Pinterest for three hours and found this picture.
I love this girls:

ugh... pretty people with their perfect skin and stuff

Today I went to Wal-Mart...
(no Target close by... I'm going in to shock)
and saw this...
 Almost five aisles of Christmas decorations...
Too soon?
What do you think?

After my Christmas Decor vs Fall/Halloween Decor meltdown I finished my shopping and got all this stuff...
be jealous

Era for clean stuff...
Jergens for soft skin...
a Glade candle that smells like apples...
(cuz I'm obsessed with apples)
  a wall plate
(which turned in to me re-wiring the whole house...
okay kidding, one outlet...
okay just kidding, had some minor issues changing the wall plate)
a pink long sleeve shirt
(look out for tomorrow's OOTD)
a million Scotch Pop-Up tape refills
(okay only six but they were clearance for $1.50 so I loaded up for X-mas)
and Rimmel "Lasting Finish in 006 Pink Blush"
(for an attempt to look like that chick up above)

When I got home I popped open a bottle of my new favorite beer...
which is my only favorite beer...
because I don't like beer...
except for this stuff...
and Bud Light Lime...
but that is IT!

Tomorrow I am getting my hair done. I love my stylist.
She's a great friend and someone I can always talk to!
This is Dixie with her grand-babies, Emareigh and Anareigh...
 Can't wait to see Dix, the girls, and Cait!
And then afterwards I am heading to Joplin to see my boo and plan for Key West!

Confessional Friday {Link Up with A Blonde Ambition}

I confess that I like big butts and I cannot lie.

I confess that ...

I confess that I love the Dog Shaming pics floating around Tumblr.

I confess that I can't wait to get my hair done next Monday! Woo hoo for no more nasty roots!

I confess that my iCloud calendar is freakin STACKED. Hair appts, doctors appts, eye appts, Miami, Key West, Sam's 1st Birthday Party, Thanksgiving.
Holy moly.

I confess that last night I consoled my dear Dixie with a bottle of champagne and pickles.
It worked.
FYI... best champagne ever.
and CHEAP!

I confess that I need to find a cute backpack to take to Key West. We do a lot of walking and I don't like wearing heavy handbags on my shoulder. Hands free is the way to be!
Now I just need to find one that doesn't look like
a) I'm going to class
b) I'm an old lady
c) I'm going on a hiking trip

I like this one...
 Now my problem is that they only have this one in white in the stores!
Looks like I'll be visiting Marshall's soon!

Have a fabulous weekend!!

Currently I Am...

"Ishmael" by Daniel Quinn. I was "forced" to read this book as one of my textbooks for Freshman College Biology. My instructor was a total hippy and he thought I was some prissy brat and always doubted my answers. He was very condescending. Little did he know that I had quite the mouth and could defend myself and belittle him just as he did me. :-)

I found it a few months ago and remember that it brought me some insight and a brighter way of thinking. Now I just have to read it again to remember what it was that did that to me!
I'm also about to dive in to November's COSMO later tonight.

Thinking About...
My dearest Mallory and how she is doing! Miss you girl!!!
How delicious a big slice of wedding cake would be...
whether or not I should take a shower tonight...
and how glad I am that I voted early today!

My new Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque. This bad boy soaks up oil and gets down and dirty in my pores and feels all magnificent and stuff.
Run down to Walgreen's and get yoself some of this awesome shiz.

Looking Forward To...
 Heading to Key West for the offshore races. If all goes as planned, I will head down next week. I will be surrounded by the worlds most fabulous boats for a week and I can smell the race fuel now!!

Why has my dad's surgeon been such an asshole though out this whole process? Are we the only ones who get treated like dog shit? WTF is his problem? He's lucky I didn't punch him in the balls today.

Don't judge me.
 (supreme pizza, baby carrots, chunky blue cheese dressing, and roasted chicken)

 That I paid $8.68 for this foundation. And that was with a $1.00 off coupon! (Originally $9.68 is what I'm trying to say.) I have a hard time paying that much for a foundation that I can't test drive. I mean they have 20 "shades" to choose from that all look about the same to me. How am I supposed to know this is my shade?
I paid $36.00 for my Makeup Forever so I guess I should shut up.
At least I got to "try it on".
this shit better be fab.

Happy About...
 I'm happy that I get to go to bed semi-early tonight and sleep in! And then I'm SUPER excited to drink some coffee with my new Pumpkin Spice Coffee Mate creamer in the morning.
Pumpkin Spice Coffee Mate Creamer

Excited About...
I'm excited that I get to see Caity and her two beautiful baby girls tomorrow! I wrote about Caity and her bebe's here. They are just now beginning to smile and I can't wait to see it in person!

What are you currently reading, thinking about, loving, looking forward to, wondering, eating, disliking, happy or excited about?!

Eff, Marry, Kill with The Vintage Apple


Today I am linking up with Michelle from The Vintage Apple for Eff, Marry, or Kill.

I chose the men of Desperate Housewives
 I WAS a diehard Desperate Housewives fan. I NEVER missed an episode... from day one.
I know...
Anywho. This whole eff, marry, kill thing is tough for me because these guys all have some serious hotness, some life issues, and some weird traits so I really had to think this through.

I would eff Mike. He's a hot cowboy. Nuff said.

I would marry Carlos. He had a rough start but came up from it and built a successful business and is a loving father. I'll take it.

I would kill Tom. Holy shit he is annoying. Bitching at Lynette 24/7 and all depressed and stuff. Pizzes me off.

Who would you eff, marry, kill?

Link up over at Michelle's blog if you write your own EMK post and leave me a comment so I can see it!

Confessional Friday {Link Up with A Blonde Ambition}

I confess that I died laughing when I heard this:
ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? Is this woman serious?

I confess that I just bought another Rimmel nail polish. I'm mildly obsessed.

I confess that I'm getting a little pissed off that there are Christmas decorations taking over already. SERIOUSLY!? It's Mid-October. Give fall/Halloween/Thanksgiving their time to shine!!

I confess that yesterday I got a venti iced green tea at Starbucks and it was delicious.

I confess that I am searching for the perfect pink Barbie Halloween costume dress. I went to this place called Half of Half  yesterday. They sell "new" clothing that department stores can't push off the shelves. Usually they have an abundance of formal dresses that have minor flaws/tears/beads missing for a decent price. (It's Halloween... I'm gonna tear it up anyway!!)
First of all, they had NOTHING that would work.
Second of all, I felt like I needed to take a shower after I fingered through the racks. Eww. Something about that places just makes me feel dirty.

I confess that I wish I was a ballerina.

I confess that these Uggs need to get in my closet, stat.

I confess that it's October and I went boating last weekend and I'm going boating tomorrow. Because I'm just hardcore like that.
(And the weather is going to be nice.)

I confess that I have an eye doctors appointment next Monday. My first one ever. Maybe get a couple pairs of glasses and hopefully contacts. I can't see the guide on the TV and that just sucks. Not to mention it might help in other situations like driving and stuff.
Maybe I'll look as chic as Jenny.

That's all of my confessions! Have a great weekend!!
