about me, currently


Reading: I started Then You Were Gone this week but to be honest…I am having a hard time getting in to it. I think Before We Were Strangers was so good I am having a hard time moving on. I hate when that happens!

Listening: Yesterday I started listening to The Boy Who Dared on audiobook. Jury is still out on my thoughts with this one. It takes place during WWII and I am starting to identify with the young boy the story is based on.

Watching: We are still trying to get in to Once Upon a Time. I am enjoying it but I get confused on what is going on sometimes. It does make me wanted to look in to the fairy tale books though like Cinder. Thoughts on those??

Lusting: All of the fall things!!! Mainly booties, like these ones from Target.

Women's Delaney Western Boots

Or these from Nordstrom

Or something super fun like these

Pinning: How to wear boots! There are so many great ways to pair them.

20 ways to wear boots - there are not enough days in the year for the number of boots I would like to own! LOVE the riding boots in this post.

Eating: All of the healthy things, with the exception of tonight. We have had salad for dinner two nights this week and pork chops on Monday. For lunches I have had greek quinoa salad, edamame and nectarines. A shit ton of water and tea too!


It it scares you, it might be a good thing to try.

Enjoying: Daily chats with my mom. Every two weeks she works days for two weeks and I get to call her on my way home from work. I enjoy that so much!!!! Sometimes we talk about whats going on in our lives, sometimes we reminisce about when we were younger and sometimes we talk about a TV show we are in to. Every single one of those conversations is much needed! Moms are the best, you know??

Throwing Back: To when Mac was a little puppy!!! He turned 5 on the 10th and I was a bad puppy mom and totally let that slip by. One of my friends has a birthday that same day and I just knew there was someone else I was missing!!!

Mac’sย first contact with Gracie:

Gracie looks amused here, right?

Happy Birthday Mac!!!!!!!!!!!!

Excited: For a drink with Laura!!! It has been far too long since I have seen her beautiful face.

Happy Friday Eve!!!!!

    The only think I like about the transition into Fall is all the new clothes!!! Yay for boots and booties! Happy Birthday, Mac! And go you on all the healthy eating, summer is so hard for me! I want ice cream every day all day.

    I have booties very similar to the ones from Target, I love them, they go with so much! One thing I learned though was they look much better if I roll my jeans up a bit so there is a little bit of skin between the bootie and my jeans, such as in the picture on the pin. It really makes your legs look longer! I also really love that quote about trying scaring things!

    I love booties, but I am never brave enough to buy/wear them. Maybe this year will be the year that I get enough courage to be fashionable for once haha

  • Reply Mattie August 20, 2015 at 11:13 am

    I love all those booties! I hate when you just read an amazing book or watched an amazing series so then anything you start right after pales in comparison. Moms are SO the best! How do they know everything?! If I have kids one day, will I automatically know everything? Or will I be calling me mom 100 times a day? Haha! Your pups are both so cute. Happy late birthday to Mac!

    • Reply Mattie August 20, 2015 at 11:14 am

      That would be ‘calling my mom’ not ‘calling me mom.’ ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Reply Lindsay Latimer August 20, 2015 at 11:50 am

    So ready for booties! It never occurred to me to look on Pinterest for ways to wear them… Sometimes I don’t know if they look right with my outfit. Moms are the best! I talk to mine a few times a day. Haha. Happy Friday eve, lady! Almost there!

    Awww how cute are the puppies?? Dogs age too and it’s fun to look at old pictures of them.

    Loving those fringe booties! And if they’re from Target they are probably affordable so you should probably snag a pair (and I will too).

  • Reply Ashley August 20, 2015 at 1:00 pm

    I had one pair of booties last fall and this year I want to get so many pairs!!

    ok but seriously if you like stuff like that, you will LOVE Cinder. if you don’t love Cinder, we can’t be friends. I lent it to Megan and she couldn’t get into it, sobs.
    What aren’t you understanding about OUAT? I guess it was so easy for me because I know all the fairytales like the back of my hand.

  • Reply Laura August 20, 2015 at 5:18 pm

    Give me all the booties!!! I want those leopard ones so bad!!

    And yes please to drink time!!! Too excited!!
