Fall Wishlist

Fall Wishlist

 Fall is just around the corner! I can feel it in my bones! It is either that, or the desperate desire I have to buy every coat, pair of tights, boots & sweater in sight! Yes it may still be 90 degrees outside, so if I am going to sweat it might as well be in some awesome fall attire, right?!

I am LOVING all of the trends I am seeing for fall! Here are just a few that I have on my wishlist!

1. Boots with SPIKES! ouch! 2. Emerald Green nail polish 3. Faux leather skirts 4. a gold Michael Kors watch (I think this is the year I finally break down and buy it!) 5. Dark Purple skinnies 6. Leopard loafers! 7. Chambray...OH so much chambray! Love all the different takes on this simple shirt! 8. Big comfy sweaters! And in a tribal print...YES please! 9. Dark red lips (maybe this will be the color that will get me a boyfriend?)

So if you see me walking around in a giant sweater, a leather skirt and boots all while it is 95 degrees...don't say anything! Just keep walking, but feel free to do a double take because I will be looking that good! ♥

why not try?

This has been on my mind a lot lately! I have so many big dreams and aspirations that when I think about putting them into play it scares the crap out of me! Why am I so content on being a wallflower, on being a home body? There is this huge world out there waiting for people to explore it, to experience it, to live it! What is holding me back from being one of those people? Just because it is scary doesn't mean that it is bad or the wrong decision! I just need to remember that and realize that maybe my life could use some SCARY in it!

obsessed

That is the best word to describe how I feel about this song!
I seriously can't get enough of it!
Also I am pretty obsessed with Taylor Swifts new song!
I know I am like a 12 year old girl, but sometimes I feel like she speaks to my soul...LIKE EVER! haha But seriously it is good! 

Other things that the word obsessed would currently describe are:
The New England Patriots
Mike and Ike's
People Water
My new polka dot jeans
anything that is mint green
Arm candy...as in layering my watch with lots of bracelets! (don't worry when I have ACTUAL arm candy you will be the first to know!)
Neutral rooms with POPS of color
Instagramming pictures of food (because I am sure everyone cares what I am eating for lunch!)
Golfing...who would have thunk?
Football...oh wait did I already say that one? ♥

Twenty Seven?! #$%*

In 53 short days I will be turning 27. HOW did this happen?

27 was the age that I couldn't even comprehend a couple of years ago, now it is knocking on my backdoor! Really it is still like 7 weeks away...but I can't help thinking about it, and I can't help think about what I have done during year 26! Everything kind of becomes a blur, but a lot has happened! Here are my highlights...(in no particular order! And I know I am missing tons!)

1. Took a road trip with my dad and watched my Patriots play against his Broncos! First NFL game, and hopefully NOT my last!
2. Survived the NBA lockout, followed by 4 months of endless basketball games!
3. Paul Millsap said hi to me in the tunnels of the ESA! ♥
4. I had a Valentine! (first one since like 9th grade!)
5. I learned how to golf & bought my own set of golf clubs!
6. My family bought a boat and we have been learning all the ropes!
7. I got up wake boarding on my very first try!
8. Took a road trip to Vegas
9. In September I will go to Lake Powell for my very first time ever!
10. I bought a new car!

There are soo many things that I still want to go do, see and learn! But the good thing about birthdays...there isn't a timeline to get things done! I can still travel, save money, exercise more WHATEVER even after I turn 27! But in the mean time I am going to relish in the last 53 days of being 26!

Ohhh...And did I tell you that my bishop wants to have a "meeting" with all of the girls in our ward who are 25 and older?! Yeah, so glad to be clumped into that group...I can only imagine what this so called meeting will be about! Help us all!!

finally friday ♥

It is finally Friday! Hooray!
Today is a good day! I have fun plans tonight, no one is at work, and I am wearing ORANGE pants! Yes Orange! My favorite color! How could you not have a good day with these babies on?!
Let's just hope that whatever pants I decide to wear tomorrow can live up to the expectations I have for Saturday!

back to reality...


Back from Vegas and back to reality! It was so nice to get away for the weekend and just relax by the pool! As you can see, we kept ourselves hydrated with our favorite water & of course Diet Coke, we ate some amazing food and...
♥ Max Brenner you and your chocolateness are pure evil!
Pretty sure Jared thought he was the luckiest man alive...but little did he know the kind of car games that girls play while on a road trip! We definitely brought out the nervous cough in him! Oh and he now knows to NEVER say the word "Payless" in the Christian Louboutin store! That is like swearing in church, you just don't do it!

Exhibit A

Being single is great! You can basically do anything you want to do, whenever you want to do it! 

One bad thing about being single...LARGE monster spiders that like to dwell in your garage ready to pounce & kill you at any second!
Exhibit A:
video
Seriously, if you are single you should not have to deal with this...just saying! (we obviously handled it really well!) And for your information, that spider was HUGE! However, I was not about to get close enough to show you!

So to all of you Husbands, Boyfriends, Brothers and/or Dads...when a girl asks you to kill a spider, don't question it! Just kill that sucker! OK thanks! ♥
