The Winner of the gift card is Jessie C.!
Congratulations! I hope you get some great decorations! Have fun shopping!
And thank you so much to everyone who entered! Wow! It almost doubled my previous months’ entries. It was so much fun to enter the names. Yes, I also like to make lists. So, this was my idea of a good time. ; )
Please tune in next month for a new giveaway. They are my very favorite part of this blog! Well, that and all of the great people I have met through this blog. I think about you guys when I am making dinner or grocery shopping. I wonder how you are doing and about certain aspects of your life that you have commented or wrote to me about. Thank you so much for including me!
I am so grateful.
Last month on my similar post, I listed a few pieces I thought I was going to purchase or like. But I ended up not purchasing any of them. Well, that is not true. I purchased the ostrich sweater from Modcloth, but I returned it the next day, because it was exceptionally small. This was great, because I purchased that black skirt with the hedgehog top instead from Anthropologie.
I have a few pieces I am watching. But take them with a grain of salt, because I am fickle. ; )
Here are my obsessions this month:
Anthropologie pretty much has my whole heart this month with all four of my wishlist items and one item all ready purchased:
Anthropologie’s Peony Applique Pullover (now on sale)
Anthropologie’s Wonderland Silk Tunic. How great is this?
Bushytailed Pullover is my favorite. I think this looks adorable.
Corallina Ladder Necklace. Also on sale.
Creature Feature Tops from Anthropologie. I love this line. I own the rabbit and the hedgehog prints in this top. I wore the hedgehog twice this week. I highly recommend it. The rabbit is not as versatile, because you cannot tuck it in. It is cute with a blazer, though.
Today (or yesterday when this post goes up), I had to take my daughter to the emergency room. She busted open her eyelid playing basketball during p.e. She had to have stitches. We ended up getting a “prescription” for her to be able to wear sunglasses at school. The trip was awful. Is it ever not? But we did spot this little guy in the eves of the building. It was going to get bright for the poor fellow. He did not choose his spot well.
I have a softness in my heart for bats. I just think they are the coolest. I was planning on putting up our Halloween decorations today, but due to spending the majority of the day in the hospital, plans changed. I figure this little guy will be my decor for now…in pictures, don’t worry, I did not take him home. ; )
When my kids went away for the weekend (a little while back), I found myself alone in the house. It was so peaceful. I sat on the couch, read magazines, and caught up on some HGTV. I also worked on my DIY that is consuming all of my time. Can you guess what it is?
Last night, I made a turkey breast dinner. I forgot to baste the turkey. My juices ended up burning. It was a citrus turkey, so we were not making gravy. Thank goodness. It had been a long day. I forgave myself. I made it with homemade biscuits and mashed potatoes. Kind of a celebration of autumn. And also because Albertson’s was doing buy one get one free, so I had to use one up. My freezer would not hold two!
I found my black t-shirt! This is fantastic news. I refuse to have more than one. I had been out of a black t-shirt for months. I will show the bottom of the skirt in two weeks. It is part of a funny post I am working on. ; )
What has been going on with you guys? Any exciting news? Fun adventures? Wishlist items for the new season? Please share!
