Thanful Thursday

I'm finding more and more vintage items that I just cannot wait to share!
I've found interesting things from photographs to wedding dresses.
Thank goodness for the Internet right?!

Today I'm thankful for the ability to read whatever I please.
My reading material ranges from the Bible to James Patterson
to Candace Bushnell to Cosmo magazine.
I'm not restricted.
This makes me happy.

You all know that I love reading, especially magazines.
I was thrilled when I came across these vintage magazine covers.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Target Tuesday

The rain has started to let up and the sun is peeking through.
Temperatures have even been in the high 70's to low 80's!
This means it'll be beach time before I know it.
And what does every girl need for a trip to the beach?
How about a bathing suit.

Marvelous Monday

Hi there everyone!  Remember me?
I know, it's been a very long time since my last post,
but as you can see I under went a little renovation and I'm well pleased.
This is the look I've been going for, and I finally got it.

I also decided to take a week off because I had to get used to some new adjustments.
One adjustment is not meant to be shared {no, I'm not pregnant for anything like that lol},
while the other is.
I'm proud to announce that Nehemiah is back sleeping in his room!
It took us a few tries and lots of tears on his part, but we survived it.
We're both sleeping wonderfully in our own bedrooms.

My home also got some attention last week. 
All my laundry finally got put away, and I can once again see my bedroom floor.
I should have taken before and after pics, but it was way too embarassing!

Happy Monday!

Thankful Thursday

{like the new pic?}
I was thinking about my life and everything I've been through
in the last year,
and although so many things are difficult at the moment,
I still love being a woman!
We are stronger than we give ourselves credit for.
We love like there is no tomorrow.
We take care of others before taking care of ourselves.
We buy way too many handbags and pairs of shoes.
And we get to wear really cute clothes!

One thing I miss most about the A-Z Challenge are the lovely pictures I had to find, and the creativity it took to tie it all in. 
Seeing that my What I'm Loving Wednesday posts were so similar to Thankful Thursday posts,
I decided to switch it up a bit. 
I have a new found interest in vintage {hence the picture above}, so I will be displaying what I'm thankful for in terms of vintage photos. 
Now I get to be creative again. 
Should be fun right?!   
Let me know what you think.

What I'm Loving Wednesday

I can't believe it's Wednesday already! 
Does anyone feel this week is flying by?
I haven't been feeling my best this week, so I'm a little behind in the blogging world.
I've been reading blog posts, I'm just not commenting as often as usual.
I also haven't had the chance to respond to your comments.
Please don't be angry. 
I haven't forgotten you.
I usually type my posts on Sunday, and this week I've been doing them the night before.
I def need to get back on schedule.

Speaking of schedules
 here's this week's list of WILW:

1.) I didn't lose my composure and I didn't need to repent after I responded to the email the ex sent me.
Yep, he responded to last week's message.
And I did good, no naughty words
mainly because the bestie wouldn't let me I have better self-control.
Remember, I'm sticking to my guns on moving forward. 
He's in my past, and that's where he belongs!
I forgot to delete my signature before sending the email, and now he has my blog link.
I don't want him peeking into my world, but what choice do I have now?
I can't go private, it wouldn't be fair to all of you.

2.) This nail polish. 
It has a gold shimmery tint and it's not too bright.
Plus, it was cheap.
The color is called excuse me.


3.) My new desk planner that is going in the upstairs hallway.
I'm praying this helps me organize my life a little better.
If it doesn't, at least it's cute and pink.
{sorry, I couldn't find a pic}
There's a section for me and for Miah
{yes, he has a social life lol}
and there's a section to write down daily meals.

4.) The weather for the next few days
Mostly Sunny
72° | 47°

77° | 54°

Chance of Showers
74° | 47°

 And the most exciting news of all....

5.) These 2 girls will live in the same state again!

I was soooo happy when she called and gave me the news.
She'll be about 2 hours away, and she won't be back until around Christmas or a little after.
I'm not at all complaining.
Now I can be with both of my first grade besties!
Once again, I'm so excited!!

What are you loving this Wednesday?
And as always

Target Tuesday

This week's Target Tuesday is even more special than usual. 
Tara is hosting a giveaway and linking up this week earns you three entries! 
Now tell me that isn't a deal! 

Last week while waiting for prescriptions at Target, I decided to stroll on over to the clothing section.
I loved the pieces in the St. Barths collection, so I decided to feature looks from Calypso this week.

Here goes:
I want to apologize for the formatting.  For some reason the words won't stay centered.

                                                       Calypso St. Barth for Target® Women's Sleep Cami Set- Fresh White
                                                        This looks so comfy. 

                                                    CALYPSO St. Barth for Target® Dinnerware Collection - Pink
                                                             These scream cookout,
                      or maybe I'm just excited because I learned how to use the grill on Mother's Day lol.

 CALYPSO St. Barth for Target® Chandelier Disk Earrings - Gold
I think these are my absolute favorites.

CALYPSO St. Barth for Target® Hammered Cuff Bracelet - Gold
This is the match perfect for those earrings.

CALYPSO St. Barth for Target® Floppy Hat - White
I would so rock this hat at the beach or at the park!

I'm not sure how this would look on me because after all I'm only 5'1.

                                               Women's CALYPSO St. Barth for Target® Linen Espadrille Wedge Sandals –
               I saw these and fell in love.

                                                     CALYPSO St. Barth for Target® Dip Dye Scarf With Tassle - Pink
                                                     I have a thing for scarves.

                                          CALYPSO St. Barth for Target® Medallion Print Sleeveless Crochet-Bib Tunic in
                          I think I like this top, but I'm not 100% sure.
                                                 CALYPSO St. Barth for Target® Wrap Bracelet With Chain - Coral
                                                 I think this bracelet is so pretty.

If you haven't checked out the entire St. Barth's collection, I highly recommend you do.
And don't forget to see who else linked up this week!
