H and I have been much better about our spending habits lately and I love how much more we've been able to accomplish around the house. We finally have our dining set, a home office, and our tufted headboard is en route to our house to help snazz up the master bedroom.

I've also made a few other impromptu purchases...

These dinner plates were on clearance for $1.48 each at Target.. oh Target how I love thee..

Speaking of Target... I FINALLY signed up for their debit card. Why on earth hadn't I done that before? 5% off every purchase plus free shipping at target.com what is there not to love? I guess I felt there was some kind of a catch even with the debit card, but there isn't! They draft the money directly from your checking account which is amazingness. Considering I keep that place in business I should have signed up a loooong time ago.

These ultra comfy mint cords from F21 for only $20. I got them before our trip to CT but keep forgetting to post them.

Who doesn't need some pleather leather leggings in their life? Picked up these bad boys as well, and if I like them I'll invest in a real pair next fall. 

My Sephora goodies showed up in the mail today too. I "spun the wheel" last week and got free shipping on a $25 purchase. So, I raided their clearance section and picked up a smokey eye brush, highlighting powder,  mascara, and blotting papers.

So excited to finally be trying out Benefit's They're Real!

Reviews will be coming soon ;)

Halloween Weekend Recap

Halloween Weekend Recap

I may not be a child anymore (for the most part) but I still love getting dressed up and celebrating Halloween :)

Friends of ours threw a party over the weekend which was a lot of fun. Always a good time...

If you follow me on Instagram you may have already seen some of the goings-on from the evening.

H and I were cave people. I felt so Pebbles Flintstone :)

... and can we talk about this deliciousness I picked up at Target yesterday for this morning's breakfast?

I could eat this with a spoon... who needs a bagel?

aaaaand... my claim to fame this weekend. I was on the hunt for Maroon 5 tickets and tweeted about them going on sale. About an hour or so later I got this notification:


Ummm.. yes please!!!

Sunday Social ~ Halloween

Sunday Social ~ Halloween

Hope everyone is enjoying their wonderful weekend, can't believe it's almost November!

Linking up with Ashley and Neely for Sunday Social.

1. What was your favorite Halloween costume as a kid?

~ My mom made my costume one year when I was really little and I was a flower. My body was the stem and around my head were all the petals, and she even fastened a bee to one of the pedals. I know there's a pic of it somewhere at her house, sadly I don't have it. 

2. If you could go back and dress up as anything what would it be?

~ Rainbow Brite! LOVED her when I was little :)

3. Favorite costume as an adult? (pictures?)

~ This year's costume for sure! H and I were cave people.. it was hysterical to see H in a dress!

4. What is your favorite halloween candy?

~ It's a toss up between candy corn and reeses peanut butter cups YUM!

5. What is your favorite Halloween memory?

~ I love that when we were growing up my brother and I always went trick-or-treating with our cousins. My cousin and I always got a lecture not to pick on our brothers and to make sure we watched over them. Of course we picked on them but we always had their back and watched over them.

6. What's your favorite scary movie?

~ I'm honestly not a fan of scary movies but I do love "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" and Garfield's Halloween special. I'm a sucker for nostalgic cartoons and holiday specials :)

Happy almost-Halloween!

Halloween Weekend Friday

Halloween Weekend Friday

Happy Friday! And it's not just any Friday! It's the Friday before Halloween :)

The next several days will be filled with Halloween parties, pumpkin carving, and trick-or-treaters at the doorstep. And let's not forget that "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" will be on Halloween night on ABC :-D

Don't you wish you could go to the Halloween Feast at Hogwarts? Oh wait.. that's only me? *blushes*

H and I haven't dressed up for Halloween since 2009 *gasp* so we're excited to get back out there this year. I was very surprised that he balked at my idea to just re-use a costume from years past and wanted us to buy new ones. 

Halloween costumes of years past:

Hula Girls back from my college days.. super crappy cell phone pic back when cell phones just started having cameras. This was when I had Nextel.. so yeah OLD. We froze that night! All we had on were coconuts, bathing suit bottoms, grass skirts, and leis IN CONNECTICUT! But we were so cute and even got on stage and danced for a best costume contest. We didn't win :(

My 1st Halloween with H when we were dating. We went as mobsters.. look I'm still blonde! 

The pirates of 2009

Miss my CT crew

My favorite part about this year's costume is what H will be wearing.. stay tuned!

It's OK Thursday

It's OK Thursday

We're almost there! It's Friday-Eve... linkin' up with Amber and Neely for It's OK Thursday.

Speaking of Amber.. head on over to her blog for her Blue Bird Bride giveaway for $20 gift certificate to Blue Bird Bride's Etsy shop. I'm of course loving the bubble necklaces... so pretty!

It's OK that....

~ I'm upset that "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" hasn't been on yet. It's not officially Halloween until that airs on tv! (it's airing on ABC on Halloween night this year for those wondering.. can't wait!)

~ I started making shadow puppets on the wall to make Roxy bark.

~ I'm already thoroughly addicted to Nashville

~ I'm sad I just re-made up the guest room and realized we don't have any house-guests slated to come down from CT anytime soon :(

~ I still have a dream of some day owning a pair of Loubies 

~ H already ate most of the Halloween candy I bought for the trick-or-treaters... sigh it's time to go out and get more and find a better hiding place this time! :-P

What's OK in your life today?
