Confession Session

It’s hump day. I’m just excited that we are that much closer to the weekend. And a long weekend at that. Halle-freaking-lujah! I haven’t confessed in a long while, so I thought today was the perfect day!

- I ordered a new Kate Spade purse last week. I have been wanting this purse ALL summer long. I finally found one on eBay for a great price, but some twat waffle beat me by $2.00 in the very last second. I was pissed. The last damn second!!!

-I got a new iphone 5s the other day. I wanted to wait for the 6, but heard it would be several more hundred dollars, and I just don’t have time for that. I have purses to buy, dammit. There was nothing wrong with my 4s, and to be honest, I don’t see a huge difference in this one. Also, I realize I’m about a year behind everyone getting this. And I don’t care.

-I feel like I’m just treading water lately. You know that feeling? Like your are just going through the motions and life is happening, but you don’t really feel it. Yeah. It’s a bad feeling, but I’m not sure what to do to get out of that funk.

-I’m in the middle of two classics- To Kill a Mockingbird (at work) and Tess of d’Urbervilles (home). I’ve never read Tess, so I thought it would be a good book to read before I start my book club book. I’m on chapter 2. Ugh.

-Can these ice bucket challenges be over? I promise I’m not a bad sport, but I hate them. They clog my newsfeed. Yes, it’s awesome people are more aware. It’s awesome that donations have increased. But I donate to charities. I don’t need to post all about it on facebook. And honestly- how many of the people doing them have actually donated???? How many just did the challenge to put it on fb?

-I’ve been pretty subdued lately, so I obviously haven’t had anything blog worthy. But to be honest, have I ever? Ha

That’s all I got today, folks. What’s going on in your world?

Target Does It Again

It’s pretty much a requirement to l-o-v-e Target if you are a blogger. I did a little shopping there last night and found my absolute most favorite find ever.

Are you ready for it?

bow

This cute little neon pink bow card holder was waiting for me. I have been looking at Kate Spade ones for a few weeks, but just didn’t want to pay the $50+ (for used ones) just to hold all of my rewards cards, business cards, etc. I happened to run up on this by accident last night, and I think the angels sang when I found it.

It is super soft, has lots of room, and is the best pink color.  There are different colors available though. And how KS is that bow on the front?

Ready for the best part?

bow price

Yep. $7 bucks for that baby.

Safe to say, this is my new favorite Target find. Ever.

*Also, I’m holding The Blog Baton today on Instagram. Follow me to see what I’m up to today!

The Blog Baton

Guess who gets to hold The Blog Baton tomorrow on insta? This girl! And I couldn’t be more excited, you guys!

Blogger, Mason from Mason…Like the Jar, came up with this fabulous idea. Here is how she describes it on The Blog Baton page:

Every week day, a different blogger will take over the Blog Baton Instagram account just for that day. Instead of this baton being city-specific and a way to learn about places and things in a particular area, this will be a way to learn about YOU and things in YOUR life and on YOUR blog. Take pictures throughout your day, share interests, do an OOTD, show us your morning Starbucks or your fresh manicure, share the Pinterest recipe your cooked for dinner...whatever! The choice is yours. This is a way for you and your blog to reach more people in this community of ours.

How cool is that? Be sure to follow me tomorrow on instagram under The Blog Baton account.

Pretty sure this is how I will feel all. day. long.

See you guys tomorrow!

Weekend Shenanigans

Well, I’ve already lied to you and I haven't even completed the first sentence. It wasn’t intentional, but that title is all wrong.

Shenanigans didn’t happen.

Other than going to the lake for a few hours on Saturday, I stayed home in comfies, binged on Netflix episodes of The Killing, ate my weight in junk food because HELLO MONTHLY VISITOR, cleaned a tad bit and caught up on naps.

The weather was nasty, rainy, and stormy. It was glorious. And I enjoyed every minute!

What kind of shenanigans did you get into this weekend?
