what i'm loving wednesday

Okay, let me put it bluntly: yesterday sucked. There, I said it. It was so bad that I got home, put on my pajamas, poured myself a huge glass of wine, and enjoyed it in bed while flipping back and forth between Jeopardy and 19 Kids and Counting.

Hubs came home, looked at me and said, "Wow. Are you okay?" Bottom line? Yes. Now I'm fine. I just needed to decompress, and apparently my way of decompressing is channeling some depressed movie star with my huge glass of wine amongst my fluffy pillows in bed.

Now that I've put myself out there, here's what I'm loving today:

My huge cup of coffee and 10 minutes of The Today Show.
It's such a nice, cozy way of waking up in the morning.


Call me a 65-year old woman, but I'm really enjoying Dallas' 101.1 classical music station.

Confession: I have road rage. (Man, I'm just really putting myself out there today!) This classical music is really a great thing to listen to if you have road rage. It totally calms me down in the morning, and really relaxes me after a long day.


My fun new water cup from Tuesday Morning.

I really don't drink enough water, but this really makes it more fun to do so! It's one of those plastic cups with a plastic lid and straw.


The first Sex and the City movie.

I watched it Sunday afternoon and was reminded of the sweet quote from Beethoven they say in the movie:

"Ever thine
Ever mine
Ever ours."

So sweet. I'm thinking about painting the quote on a canvas and hanging it in our new house.

The sweet e-mail my mother-in-law sent me this morning. She knew that both me (and hubs) had terrible days yesterday, and she sent me this e-mail this morning regarding her daily devotional that she read this morning. How appropriate for today, and as my Mom says, "Isn't God funny?":

"This is my devotional for today. This is Jesus talking in first person:

'I am taking care of you. Trust Me at all times. Trust Me in all circumstances. Trust Me with all your heart. When you are weary and everything seems to be going wrong, you can still utter these four words: 'I trust You, Jesus.' By doing so, you release matters into My control, and you fall back into the security of My everlasting arms.

Before you arise from your bed in the morning, I have already arranged the events of your day. Every day provides many opportunities for you to learn My ways and grow closer to Me. Signs of My presence brighten even the dullest day when you have eyes that really see. Search for Me as for hidden treasure. I will be found by you.'" - Deuteronomy 33:27; Jeremiah 29:13-14

Wow. All I can say is "wow." Thank you, MIL, for sending this today. How appropriate.

Happy Wednesday!

i choose JOY.
-james 1:2

Hey, It's Okay...

...to dread going to the dentist, but doing a small "Happy Dance" when he tells you that you don't have any cavities.

...to have a little cryfest this morning and seriously look puffy and red now...and not caring a lick.

...to seriously consider making this blog for invited readers only.

...to be looking forward to this weekend, full of doing absolutely nothing with my hubs.

...to not have Facebook. It's for the birds.

...to really be looking forward to Something Borrowed coming to theatres.

...to cry at a sweet thank you note your best friend sends you. She's a bestie for a reason!

...to plan a weekend away. Just you and the hubs. And not tell anyone where you're going. Spontaniety.

...to scour Craigslist for a dining room table. What? Some people have some really nice stuff.

...to write a blog about how sad you are today and simply not caring.
The weather matches my mood. I can't wait to go home, get in bed and cuddle with my hubs. Looks like tonight is going to be takeout and wine. Can't wait.

Monday, March 28, 2011

my weekend in no pictures. well, two.

Hubs was gone this weekend for his bi-annual National Sales Conference, so I had some major girl-time this weekend. And while I really missed him, I loved being able to be super girly and not hear any complaints! :)

Friday after work, I got a manicure and pedicure. Heavenly.

I came home, ate yummy pasta that hubs isn't a fan of, got in my pajamas at 8 p.m. and watched Morning Glory. It was a cute movie, and I just love Rachel McAdams.

Saturday, I met my mother-in-law for lunch at Cafe Express and shopping at Southlake Town Square. I was on the hunt for a dress to wear on Easter Sunday, and after four hours and about 10 stores later, I found the one. (Is it sad that I spent more time searching for an Easter dress than I did my wedding dress? Something to ponder.) While it's not online, I found it, along with a sweater and a cute top at Banana Republic.

After our shopping marathon, I came home and watched How Do You Know. Ugh, terrible movie and I love Reese. Womp-womp.


I slept suuuuuuuuper late on Sunday and cleaned the house and went to the grocery store. Fun stuff, right?

Well, I'm sure you've just loved this riveting blog post. :)
I'm trying to make it through this dreary morning.
Happy Monday!

one year ago.

As I sit here in my pajamas, sipping a big cup of coffee and watching "My Best Friend's Wedding," I am taken back to exactly one year ago today.

We ventured to Dallas Farmers Market for the first time. The weather was exquisite. Blue skies, a strong breeze and a little warm for March.


We ate Tex-Mex at a hole-in-the-wall at the Market. He was unusually calm, collected.
 

We bought fresh vegetables, fruit, hanging flower baskets, and even local honey. He paid for everything, which wasn't unusual. We walked hand in hand, admiring the beautiful colors of the fruits and veggies in the stalls. It was officially spring, and it finally felt like it after two thick snows in Dallas.

We went back to my apartment and worked in the little yard, hanging those flower baskets. Sweeping the balcony. Watched the sunny weather do as Texas weather does and turn windy, cloudy and cold. Such is March in this fickle state {similar to today, actually}.


He threw out the idea of visiting White Rock Lake that evening. I complained a little, but eventually relented. He took a shower; I didn't. I must admit that I got a little curious as to why he was showering just to go walk around a lake. He left to get a smoothie at Jamba Juice (actually, he left to get my favorite cupcakes at Society Bakery) and then came back and we left for the lake. 

That evening, March 27, 2010, Brandon asked me to be his wife. 


And of course, I said yes. 

Brandon, thank you for asking me to be your wife. I can't believe it's been a year already. 
I love you.

tgif.

tgif. this is how i'm feeling about the fact that today's friday:


to celebrate?

i'm getting a mani/pedi after work, hitting up cvs and relaxing with a glass of wine. too bad "tgif" is no longer on tv on friday nights.

oh, the life of an adult.

a vacation would be nice.

"too much work and no vacation,
deserves at least a small libation.
so hail! my friends, and raise your glasses,
work's the curse of the drinking classes."
-oscar wilde


I am loving this weather. I really am. I'm loving that it's dark when I get out of bed at seven a.m. I'm loving that it's light out until nearly eight p.m. I'm loving pastels, chocolate candy eggs in a bowl on a table, fresh flowers in the house, open windows and being outside more.

I'm loving shopping for an Easter dress, making Easter plans, finding hubs the perfect pastel Polo button-down to wear to church on Easter Sunday.

As much as I dread the stupid birds at 4 a.m., I'm loving that they're there and show the sign of new life that spring always brings. I'm even enjoying the pollen. Say whaaa? Yes. Because it means a new season is here, and for everything there is a season. {Ecclesiastes 3:1-8}

But you know what?


I really need a vacation. This place {above} looks fab.

Not to complain in the least, but I feel as though I've been going since about December.

Exhibit A:
-I worked on our client's biggest event of the year in early December.
-After that, I spent the rest of December doing end-of-year reports and recaps.
-Then Christmas came, and, not to sound at all ungrateful, but doubling Christmases is exhausting. + travel.
-In January, I was pulled in to work on the Super Bowl for another client. Hello, Busy R Us. That lasted until early February.
-I spent all of February playing catch-up on my "real" client work, and then was down and out with the flu for a whole week. Then, came back and played double catch-up. That was fun.
-Then wedding season came, and one of my best friends got married on March 12; another is in the shower process and is getting married May 21. I traveled home (roughly four hours each way) two weekends in a row.

Exhibit B:
We're currently in the process of purchasing our first home.
Stuh-ress-fulllllllllllllll.

Exhibit C:
Since we're going to make the biggest purchase of our lives to date this year, we're nixing the annual vacay with hubby's family to Orange Beach, Ala. And, possibly spending our anniversary with a good ol' "staycation." (A bit of Recession vocab for you.)

Conclusion, counselor?
That means no vacation. And I need one.

I'm very tempted to just take a long weekend and head somewhere close with the hubs (i.e.: Fredricksburg, Kemah, Canyon Lake) and decompress. Where's that PTO form...?

Do any of you have any great {Texas} vacation spots for a long weekend?

Travelin' Fool

So, in addition to my {potential} trip to NYC next month, I am now confirmed for D.C. in May!

Sadly, it's for work (not pleasure), so I can't bee-bop around the city, but I'm definitely looking forward to it!


LeAnn, if you're reading this, we're going to have to meet up! :)

What I'm Loving Wednesday

Happy Wednesday!

It has been a crazy busy day for me, full of meetings and last-minute deadlines. But you know what? It makes me feel so good to check those things off my list.

Here's what I'm loving today:

My fun leopard-print heels I'm sporting. It just makes the day a bit sassier, no?


My fun curls! My hair is so much easier to do in the morning, so thank you rollers!


This precious "Happy Everything!" platter/stand that we got as a {late} wedding gift. I like to always celebrate holidays (even the little ones, ahem St. Patrick's Day), so this eliminates me having to buy each individual holiday's decorations. Happy Everything!

(And, that little thingie on the top that says "Cheers" is removeable with velcro and comes in each holiday. Love it!)


These fun decorative bottles I got at our local Bed, Bath & Beyond.

I'd seen them in specialty (a.k.a.: expensive) stores and loved them, but hated the price. Well, I was in Bed, Bath & Beyond buying a wedding gift and saw these little guys on the clearance shelf. They're currently sitting on the mantle in our little apartment, but I can't wait to move them somewhere more fun when and if we buy a house!


And, I don't have a photo of him on here, but my sweet husband is definitely "something" I'm loving today. (And every day!)

He is really working hard with the lenders, banks, realtors, etc. for us in our home-buying process and I'm so thankful for him! I don't know anything about types of loans, realtor stuff, and any home buying jargon. So, thank you, babe for really stepping up to the plate and making our home dreams a reality!!

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

hey, it's okay.

I'm stealing this "segment" from Stephanie indefinitely. :)

Hey, it's okay...

-That I'm channeling Emma Pillsbury from Glee today:


...yep, totally rocking a gray dress, turquoise cardigan, pearls, blue flats (hello, wedding shoes!) and a curly ponytail. Hey, it's Tuesday. 

(And yes, I'm aware that my spray tan is slowly wearing off and I look like I have some weird disease between my feet and legs. And, for the record, this is the carpet in my office, not my house! Ick.)


-To eat a Dreamsicle popsicle last night when your tummy hurts and have hubs clean up the kitchen.

-To still not have finished reading that Real Simple I was so excited about last week.

-To be looking forward to tonight's dinner at 10:52 a.m. What?

-That I'm totally over doing laundry and cleaning bathrooms. The basket is overflowing and I'm just not in the mood; and the freaking bathrooms get dirty the day after I clean them. I need a maid.

-To eat two three mini bundt cakes for breakfast instead of my protein bar.

-To be very excited that our house hunt has officially gotten underway. It's so stressful, but very fun.

-To really enjoy the "2011 People of Wal-Mart" e-mail my Dad sent me this morning. I'm very concerned about America after seeing that. Gross.

Happy Tuesday!

weekend wrap-up + picture overload

"We're very East Texas people." - Patsy Cline

This weekend, I traveled back to East Texas for a bridal shower for one of my very best friends, Emily. She and I met in 10th grade after she moved from Ruston, Louisiana. And we've been friends ever since!

Anyway, my Mom hosted Emily's shower at her house on Sunday (so my pictures are a little backward, but I'm so excited to show you how cute everything looked!). And please excuse my overuse of my Hipstamatic iPhone app.

My Mom and Dad made this precious little chalkboard frame, which is hanging in the kitchen/breakfast area. (I asked for one for my birthday - ha!).
Anyway, I wrote on it the below:


Em loves birds, so it was a bird/spring-themed shower.

This is the dining room, which housed the mini bundt cakes (which went on that wooden "tray" thingie in the middle), punch, coffee, water, mints, chocolate-covered strawberries and the precious floral pieces my mom created. The top of the wooden thing is a "W" cutout (for her new last name!) surrounded by (fake) moss and twigs.

This is the table in our entry where her book was. The center photo is a framed shower invitation; the left is an engagement picture of Emily and her fiance Austin; the right is a list of the hostesses with a "W" monogram in the middle. There was even a birdcage with (fake) little birds in it.

So cute!

And I just loved the white hydrangea floral arrangements my Mom did. They were tied with dark green tulle and seated on little nests, complete with a little bird.


Her shower was so beautiful and it was great to see my friend! Only two months from today until she's a Mrs.! EEK!

Switching gears here...

After the shower decorating, we went to my parents' boat house and enjoyed the amazing spring weather. I just love our lake and even told my parents, "If I lived here, I'd be out on that lake every.single.day." It's wonderful.


{Please excuse my no make-up face!}

My Dad, one of my brothers, my sister and I went out on the boat for the afternoon and it was pure bliss. Nothing is better than having nothing to do, being on a boat, being with family, and jamming out to the Zac Brown Band.


Isn't it gorgeous out there? So peaceful.

That night, we went to my parents' friend's land to roast hot dogs and marshmallows and watch the rising of the biggest moon in 18 years.

This was my view from the fire. {Can I go back?}


The sunset was absolutely gorgeous. I kept thinking, "How can you look at something so beautiful and not believe in God?"

[Side note: This photo is completely un-edited and taken with my iPhone, which doesn't do it justice.]

The sunset was behind me, and the gorgeous moon was in front of me. Absolutely breathtaking.

Again, the iPhone camera doesn't do it justice, but the moon was a deep orange and so big. It eventually changed to the white color it normally is, but was so bright. We were outside and could see things by the light of the moon, and for this girl who has been in Dallas for nearly three years? I forgot what that was like. And I loved the reminder.


As we were driving off of their land to go home, my Dad noticed the moon reflecting in not one, but two places on a small pond. Of course, we all stopped, got out of the truck, and took pictures.

It looked like something you'd see in a painting.


I'm back at work on this dreary Monday morning and am totally missing my family. I'm missing not checking my e-mail, not being an "adult," sleeping late and being outside (whether it be on the lake or in the woods of deep East Texas).

I hope you all have a wonderful Monday. I'm trying to get out of my post-home funk!

Home.

"I'm headin' home babe, I got a long way to go..." -Pat Green


This picture is from Christmas a few years ago, but it's home, and I love it.

I'm going here today (sans hubby) and while I'm not looking forward to the drive, I'm looking forward to being home. I don't care how old I get, this house will be my home. I'm looking forward to seeing my family for the second weekend in a row, eating my mom's yummy cooking, seeing my grandparents and sleeping in the same room as my little sissy.

(...and I'm sure hubs is looking forward to sleeping super late, playing ridiculous amounts of games on the Playstation, golfing with his dad and not cleaning one thing until I call and say I'm on my way home. :))

One of my very best friends (shout out to Emily!) is getting married May 21, and my mom is hosting a bridal shower for her in this very house on Sunday. I am so excited to see her, and even more excited that she (and her future husband!) are moving to Dallas after their wedding.

On a random note, hubs and I went to Snuffer's last night for supper. Can I please just say that I will never, ever get their cheese fries ever again?! I don't know if it was the cheese fries or an early case of menopause (I'm hoping it's the former), but I was up all last night with hot flashes! What the heck!? Poor hubs was cuddled up with all of our blankets and I was over there with the sheets hardly on my body. Y'all, not okay.

Anyway, I'm sure after that TMI you're ready to stop reading, but anyway, happy Friday! I'll be back on Sunday evening with photos. :)

What I'm Loving Wednesday

Happy Wednesday!

Today I'm loving:
That I got to be in this lovely place today. I absolutely love going "home" and miss it like you wouldn't believe. Baylor, you were the best three and a half (because I graduated a semester early) years of my life.


And while we were in Waco, we made a pit stop at George's for lunch and had their yummy fried pickles. I love, love LOVE their fried pickles! (And Big O's...)
 

I'm also loving that our wedding book {finally} came in. I just love turning the pages and looking at the photos over and over again.


I am so dumb and don't know how to rotate this, but I am loving that my Real Simple came in the mail on Monday! I haven't had the time to sit down and read it, but those pages are calling my name tonight. Can't wait to delve in!


And lastly, I'm loving my bridesmaid bouquet in a little vase on our console table. Fresh flowers are a little "luxury" for me, because I hardly ever spend money on them (even at the grocery store, where they're so cheap!) so when they are in the house, I just love it. These roses actually smell really good, and I love that they're located next to the photo of my grandparents at their senior prom circa 1956. It's the simple things. :)

I hope you've all had a lovely day. I'm off to rest for a bit...making the drive from Dallas to Waco and back again in one day is exhausting!

Duh, The Bachelor.

I thought long and hard about whether or not I was going to post about last night's finale of The Bachelor.

Instead of me boring you to death with long paragraphs, you're getting my bullet point thoughts.

  • Brad is from my hometown. That's neat.
  • I cried when Brad proposed to Emily. Shut up.
  • Then I noticed that he was reading his proposal from something in his hand. I stopped crying. How romantic, Brad.
  • I really, really wanted Emily to win all season long. However, after I watched her on After the Final Rose, she seems really immature.
  • I don't want to believe it, but I can't stop reading about how Emily and Brad are no longer together (again) and how she never was engaged to Ricky Hendrick.
  • How did she get that big giant house? She's my age. I totally thought that Ricky left her some giant life insurance policy and that's how she got it. If they weren't engaged, then who knows.
  • I never feel bad for the runner-up chick when I watch these finales, but last night my heart just broke for Chantal and her prom updo and big feather on her dress.  Being told "you're not the one" (on national television, even) totally sucks. Bless her heart. She handled it really well, though.
  • I am not a fan of Ashley H. and I'm not happy that she's the next Bachelorette. However, I will now have Monday nights free to watch Gossip Girl, so thank you ABC.
  • Emily, if you're mad that he made out with other girls, then please don't go on The Bachelor. It's like Sister Wives meets Bachelor Pad. I understand that Monday's suck because you have to watch it, but sister, he picked you and put a massive Neil Lane diamond on your finger so "hesh ep" (as my great-grandmother used to say).
  • When Neil Lane walked through the door to Brad's hotel room, I totally thought it was his therapist and moaned out loud, "Not again!"
Anyone else have thoughts on last night's finale? I know you do!

Monday, March 14, 2011

Monday. Ick.

As if Mondays aren't crappy enough, my iPhone decided that it wanted to wake us up at 5:30 this morning as opposed to our normal 6:30.


Poor Brandon heard my alarm, got up, started into the bathroom...and then wandered into the kitchen. Bless his heart, he looks at the digital clocks on the microwave and stove and noticed them blaring "5:30." He almost died.

Neither of us were able to go to back to sleep, so needless to say, we're exhausted today!

After talking with our IT guy at work (who's also my cube-mate, or "cubie"), apparently this is a national problem. Google "iPhone Alarm Clock." Yikes!

The only thing getting me through this Monday is knowing that The Bachelor and Bethenny Ever After are tonight, and I have a super yummy supper on our little menu!

Wedding Weekend Wrap-Up

This weekend we traveled to my hometown for a wedding for a girl I've been friends with since I was born. 

I was a bridesmaid, my sister was a junior bridesmaid, my grandfather officiated the ceremony and my mom was the wedding coordinator at the church, so it really was a family affair! 

Hubs and I both took half days on Friday and traveled south for the weekend. Friday evening was the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner, and Saturday was the wedding. 

I spent all day at the church on Saturday, while hubs trained for the 10K he has coming up soon, as well as shot guns with my dad and brothers. (We're from East Texas, y'all!) 

The wedding was very nice and we had fun eating yummy food and dancing at the reception. We didn't get to bed until 1 a.m.! Since we were all so sleepy and had a long weekend, we slept really late today, and then my dad and mom cooked amazing hamburgers before we headed out. 

It was a fun (but very short!) weekend. Hubs and I have been busy since we got back home grocery shopping, unpacking, getting ready for tomorrow and cooking supper. The Pioneer Woman's "Pasta alla Marlboro Man" is simmering on the stove. Mmmm. 

And a couple of photos for you:


Hubs and me (wearing his suit jacket because it was freezing!) at the reception.

Sissy and me (in our matching purple dresses) at the reception.

Tomato, Tuh-mah-toe.

Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong sang, "...you say either, and I say either; you say neither and I say neither...yes you like potato, I like potato; you like potato, I like potato..." in their song Let's Call The Whole Thing Off. Have you heard it?

This song relates so well to me (the East Texas girl) and my husband (born in Tennesse, but raised in Southlake, Texas) it's uncanny.

Before we were married, Brandon was driving and I told him to "exit onto the feeder." Yes, the feeder. He looked at me like I had three eyeballs and Medusa hair. "The FEEDER?" he exclaimed. I looked at him like he had four eyeballs. "Um, yes, the feeder. That's what it is..." He then proceeds to tell me that he's never heard of the word "feeder" in his life and instead calls it the "access road." What-ever. You say access road, I say feeder.

So, what do you call that thing you push at the grocery store? {Pausing for a moment to let you think about this.} I call it a "buggy." My husband? A "shopping cart," or just a "cart." You say cart, I say buggy.

I say that I'm "fixing supper." Brandon likes to say to me, "Why are you fixing it if it's not broken?" Smarty pants. (However, I have conformed the kid to saying "supper" instead of "dinner!") You say making dinner, I say fixing supper.

I also have other fun East Texas words that I try to only say on a very small basis...usually these come out (along with the accent) when I'm tired, mad, or had a few too many margaritas at Gloria's:
  • "Yousta could," (which, if you are not from East Texas: "Used to be able to." Need me to use it in a sentence? Okay: "I yousta could play the piano.") Moving on.
  • Another one is "rigger." As in, "My mom is gonna have a rigger when she sees my report card!"
  • "Egg on." I'm sure this is one you've heard before: "Quit egging her on and she'll stop!"
  • "Y'all," but if you're just from Texas you use that one! My favorite is saying, "All of y'all." Which, basically is saying, "All of you all." Totally doesn't make sense, but I love it.
  • And lastly, "Bless his/her/your heart." This needs no explanation.
Do any of you have funny things you say based on where you live or grew up? What about differences in you and your significant other?

What I'm Loving Wednesday

Happy Wednesday!

We've both had crazy busy weeks, so we're pretty exhausted over here in our house! 

Today, I'm loving: 

Our photos from our shoot with Kelsey Elizabeth Portraits

It sounds so silly, but I am LOVING my Remington hot rollers!

These are such a time-saver in the morning, and are so simple! I literally wash my hair, blow dry it, roll it, put my make-up on, unroll, brush/finger comb and spray! I love it. So easy.



I bought the Yankee Pineapple Cilantro candle on sale at Bed, Bath & Beyond on Saturday, and it seriously smells like spring.

I don't know what the sales are like where you are, but my local BB&B had the large, three-wick candle on sale for $11.99. Score!
And, while we're on the subject of candles, my mother-in-law bought my sister-and-law and me "Market 3" candles from her trip to Market in Atlanta before Christmas. Well, I ran out of those fabulous-smelling beauties*Womp-womp* and needed more.

I couldn't find them online (and trust me, I scoured the WWW for you) but I can tell you that they're available at Weir's little gift shop here in Dallas. And of course I made a pit stop there on Saturday, as well! They're $18 for a box of 12.

Have a wonderful day! I'm off to a client meeting.

Donate the Dress.

This is such a great opportunity!

March 13 - April 2, JC Penney locations are collecting prom dresses for charity. Take yours in and help a sweet girl that can't afford to do so, enjoy a great prom!

I can't tell you how many fancy dresses I have from sorority functions, formals, semi-formals (and bridesmaids dresses!) that, while they're so pretty, I probably will never wear again. That said, why should they be just hanging in my closet when a girl could use them (and really enjoy them?!)

Stop by JC Penney next week (and until April 2!) to donate those dresses!

b.e.a.

Okay y'all. This show? Cracks.Me.Up.


Have you ever watched Bethenny Getting Married? Okay, well, this is season two, and now that she's married, it's "Bethenny Ever After."

She is so witty, so funny, and surprisingly real. And Jason? I think he's hilarious. {Can I tell you a secret? Hubs watched it with me last night and we were rolling.}

My favorite quote of last night?
"Part of the reason we want to keep Gina is because it's a very unique household, and I would prefer not to be sued."

It makes my Mondays just a little bit better. :)

photos

We LOVE Kelsey Elizabeth Portraits in our house! Please, pretty, pretty please book her for your next photo shoot. You won't regret it, trust me.

These are just a sampling of the fabulous photos she took for us...yesterday. Talk about amazing editing and quick turnaround! I just love her.
