10 Day You Challenge {9 Loves}

I'm so glad so many of you have decided to join in and do the challenge too!
If you haven't yet, feel free to join!
It'll make this Monday more... bearable!

9 Loves

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
Philippians 4:13

Because he is my soul's other half.

My Princess.
Because she is the sunshine in my life.

My Loved ones.
Friends & family.
Because they're with me through everything.
Tears & Laughter.

Because seeing and experiencing the world is my passion.

I have way too many favorite foods.
& drinks.
Nom. Nom. Nom.

There is never a day that passes by where music is not in my life.
Whether I'm just listening or singing, I wouldn't have it any other way.

The Beach.
My most favorite place to be.

There is no feeling like transporting yourself into a world within a book.

What do you love?

10 Day You Challenge {10 Secrets}

A day late, but here is the 10 Day You Challenge I spoke of in Wednesday's post that I found on Jenny's blog.

Welcome to day one!

10 Secrets

I still sleep with a giant stuffed dog my sister gave me when she moved out when I was 11.
After High School graduation, our school has a lock-in at the school. Oodles of food, DJ, swimming, hypnotist. They went all out. It was actually pretty awesome. Once the doors unlocked at 5am to go outside, myself and two other grads went out to the one guy's car. He had a bottle of champagne. We popped it and drank champagne in the High School's parking lot, toasting to the end of your high school careers. Then went back instead and enjoyed the rest of the lock in.
Even though I love and adore children, I don't think I want to have any of my own.
People often make me feel like I'm "missing" something within myself because of this.
One of my biggest regrets is not going away for college.
Whenever I'm in my car, my radio volume number has to be in increments of 5.
My sister was the first person I called after Vito asked me to marry him but when I called my mom next, I told her she was the first person I called.
I have zero self confidence.
I wish I was more artistic.
I often envy artistic talent that other people possess.
Anytime Hanson releases a new CD, I have to buy it.
I may not love them like I use to (think plastering my wall with Zac Hanson pictures because he was obviously going to marry me one day), but I still love their music.
I have the biggest black thumb ever.
My mom even bought me a cactus as a child, thinking that I could keep that alive.
I've killed a cactus.

Feel free to join in on the challenge with me!

Happy Friday & the first day of fall!

Word-Filled Wednesday {34}

Hey y'all.
It's about time I get back around this blog.
It's been vacant for a bit too long.
& I miss you ladies.

I plan on doing a little blog challenge I found over on Jenny's blog.
That'll start tomorrow!
But for today, enjoy Word-Filled Wednesday.
It's something I need to work on, especially with all the stress going on in my life right now.

"There's a 30% chance that it's already raining!"

Title: Quote from Mean Girls

Thank the Lord it is Tuesday, which is like a Monday since I had off yesterday.
So let's talk about important things from this weekend.


September 6th.
September 6th?!
Someone please explain how we almost have 1 week of September already over with.

Please look at this weather forecasted for today:
A high of 63?!
I'm pretty ready for fall but I'd like to ease into it please.
It was almost 90 just 2 days ago.

Also, anytime a percentage of rain comes up, I think of this scene from Mean Girls.
Makes me laugh every. single. time.

Labor Day weekend = Good sales weekend!
Vicki's had their panty raid.
Kohls had a huge sale on K-cups.
Borders has less than 10 days left and is up to 60-80% off.
Bath & Body Works brought in their fall scents.
Please see the one they made just for me.
Pumpkin and caramel? My two favorites? Yes.
Also bought sweet cinnamon pumpkin spray for my car too.

Pumpkin Spice Lattes.
The iced one on Saturday for when it was hot and humid.
The hot one for today when the high is 63*.
That is all I gots to say about that.

Yesterday Vito & I celebrate one year of engagement.
1 year already?
Yeah, I can't believe it either.
We kept it low key and just enjoyed being together all day.
The weather was unfortunately rainy so any day trips outside were thrown out.
But that is okay.
We went to dinner and ate yummmmmmmy food.
Spinach and Artichoke dip.
Blue Moon for him and White Zin for me.
Blondie Sundae for dessert.
Duck for him and parmesan encrusted tilapia for me.
It was good eatin', to say the least!
Guess it is time to get to that wedding planning I've been anxiously avoiding awaiting!

How was your holiday weekend?
