...and the Pantone color of the year 2013 is.....

EMERALD!

I have always loved emerald, so super excited about incorporating more of it in my wardrobe and decor.  Not that I couldn't before but always good to have a nudge in a certain direction :)

Addicted~Aerie Dormwear Skinny Boyfriend Pant

It's only been a couple days, but the minute I get home from work, I put on the comfy goodness pictured below.  I ended up purchasing the Dormwear Skinny Boyfriend Pant from Aerie on Cyber Monday for a pretty good price, free shipping, etc... and why I continue to buy from Victoria's Secret is beyond me.  EVERYTHING I have ever purchased from Aerie has been super comfy beyond belief.  AND they still have 40% off on the site.  Hmmm, maybe I need the tunic to go with it! :)

Welcome December

Finally, it is December!  Although the temperature here has spiked to 70!? What's up with that? I want it to feel like December. 
I rode in a float yesterday at a local Christmas Parade-just love all the fun events and happenings this month. 
So many things going on~entered third trimester!  I have been so incredibly lucky and blessed with my pregnancy.  Other than feeling Eh a few mornings, I really can't complain.  It's the home stretch now with lots of new, exciting things to come.  We will have the nursery ready this month!  I am enjoying pregnancy but there are some days I am ready for him to be here in my arms already!  Oh and did decide on a name, which we have decided not to tell anyone until much closer to time.  :)

Well, since I can't experience snow, I will day dream about it! :)

Holiday Giftsets

Love, love, love the holiday giftsets Sephora has this time of year.  I would take one of each if I could.  Here are a few of my favorites:

I am in awe with this one.. they are all mini size bottles which is nice for people like me that like variety when it comes to nail color!  It has 4 colors of caviar pearls, which I really want to try.
I purchased one similar to this recently and the best thing is you can bring back the voucher and receive a full size fragrance of your favorite one for FREE!   Can't beat that!
So many different options for this one...different types of lipstick, gloss, balm and super affordable!
Same with this one!  I, personally love trying different brands of a particular makeup item. 
I like that this one has a complete eye look included.
I ALWAYS love Too Faced sets.. they are so much fun!
I received a Josie Maran Argan Oil set last year similar to this one (mine had several makeup items in it).  I am now addicted to Argan Oil :)

Cozy Monday

I had a nice, relaxing weekend for once! It was nice to lounge around in pj's and anything cozy. 
Still wishing I was curled up on the sofa actually with a blanket and hot cup of cocoa.

Halloween!

Pretty excited that Halloween is right around the corner!

I couldn't help it haha-it's cute and affordable and may be the only time I can wear it! :)

Think Pink!

Every year, I participate in the local Breast Cancer walk, which is this coming Saturday.  Throughout the years, it has been heart warming to see the growing support.  So many Dad's, Brothers, and other male family members/friends have come out.  It is truly great to see!
Here are a few of my favorite pink (Breast Cancer Awareness) images.

~Hello October~


Yay!  October is finally here!  While it is still 80 degrees outside, :( I gladly welcome any hint of a chilly morning or evening.  
I started off the month (ok well it was technically the last days of September) with a trip to Atlanta to visit my brother, do a little apple picking and shopping.  
We went to Red Apple Barn in Ellijay, GA 
Although it rained earlier that  morning, the leaves were just starting to turn shades of gold and orange.  I love the drive headed towards the mountains, so peaceful and serene.  
Once we arrived at Red Apple Barn, we took a short tractor ride up to the apple orchard.  The trees were separated in rows and they had Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, Jonagold, Fuji, and Red Delicious.  We ended up going with a bushel and I now have enough apples for a month! :)
It was a lot of fun!
