Random Tid Bits.

Hi! Happy Thursday. Things going through my mind lately:
  • Today is exactly ONE week until classes resume! Ahh, I'm nervous because I start the elementary education program this semester. I'm excited that I'll be taking all education classes instead of BS classes but at the same time, this means I'm one step closer to the real world and that scares me! haha. I'll still be working 2 days a week so I can imagine I'm going to have way less free time which sucks. I have to figure out a way to manage school, work, exercise and M. This is the first time that I will be in school and M will be home. When he was at school, I would have all week to get all of my work done and see him all weekend. Well now that he's home, I'm going to have to find a way to balance every thing. I think it's possible though since he works long hours. I'll be sure to apologize in advance for not blogging/commenting as much :)
  • I received my new issue of Glamour in the mail. This always excites me because they have so many great beauty tips and new styles so I enjoy reading it. However, when I received it today, it was more like an encyclopedia! Haha, this thing is almost a half inch thick! It's their biggest issue in 20 years though. Might take me a day or two to get through (I never usually read it all at once.
Doesn't she look great after having twins?!

  • There's less than a month until my birthday! (Sept. 16) I'm contemplating on not celebrating though because 24 seems SO scary and to be honest, I don't feel that old at all. I feel like I was just turning 19 or 20. Where is life going?! I need to start making a wish list of things I want ;-)
 How cute is this cake!?
I've always wanted a fancy cake for my birthday :)

  • Speaking of birthday's, one of my very good blog friends celebrates hers tomorrow! Liz was one of my very first blog friends. She is one of the sweetest people I have ever known! So down to earth and is always there for me! Too bad she lives so far away. Be sure to go and wish her a happy birthday :) I know she would appreciate it. Happy birthday Liz! xox.
 
  • I'm ready for fall. The other night M and I were talking about things we want to do in the coming months and I was so excited about it.. Football games, pumpkin picking, Halloween, Thanksgiving, etc. He has never been home for these things so it's sort of all new to me :) I can't wait for the fall candles to come out either. Spiced Pumpkin by Yankee Candle is my favorite! Love. I also can't wait to drink hot chocolates in my cozy fall clothes :) It's so pretty here during the fall because of all the trees changing colors. I can however wait for winter! I loathe it. Yuck!!

I've always wanted to go apple picking!
Let's see if I can talk M into it - haha.

Have a great weekend ladies!
Enjoy the last couple of weeks of summer :)

Kelly said...

GIRL!! I got my issue of Glamour this week too and my first thought was, "Damn! That is one BIG magazine" As soon as I sat down with it I read that it was the biggest issue in 20 years, hahah-- no doubt!!

And don't get me started on the fall bit again-- can't wait!! We were shopping in Pier1 yesterday and their fall/Thanksgiving decor is soooo cute-- do not go there, Brittany! ;-)

Happy Friday

Amber said...

24?? You're still a babe! :) Embrace it!

And I can't wait to decorate for the fall either. Bring on the cooler weather and fall colors!

Jenn @ WestSacHoney said...

Girl what I wouldn't give to be back in school minus the work and papers.

I don't subscribe to Glamour any more so I might have to snag one if it's the biggest issue in 20 years!

Hey I didn't know your a September baby too! Mine is the 27th and Dustin's is the 12th!

I'm totally ready for fall too! Can't wait for Yankee Candles with the seasons changing they are so yummy!

Shanna said...

I agree...bring on Fall!

Join the Gossip said...

Good luck with school!

I am so jealous of all of you East Coast bloggers having Fall. Although I do love to read all of your posts and see the wonderful foliage pics! LA doesn't even have a real weather change :( I guess we are lucky in that sense, but really? Can't I get some orange leaves?! hehe

Ashley @ KiwisandCocktails said...

School time already??
This weekend was chillier and we even can see the plush green leaves changing already, and I wont lie- It made me sad! Andrew was excited to see signs of fall, but Fall just means next comes cold winter! haha

...::Heather @ Mrs. Southern Bride::... said...

That is such a cute cake!!

Jessica said...

School starts for us tomorrow... and I'll be so glad when the week is over! Hahaha

Michaela said...

Best of luck with school :)
Couldnt agree more about fall...its my favourite time of year!

Taylor @ The Undomestic Momma said...

I just signed up to get Glamour! Im so excited! I love that cake!! Im about to be 24 too and it seems scary to me too!

Ms. Emily Ann said...

Hope you're enjoying your last couple of weeks before school!

Happy almost Birthday!! 24 is still early twenties... don't stress out until 28.. that's late twenties~ yikes! :)
