Five Things…

TGIF!  Only 3 weeks until my kiddos get out of school and I think I’m more excited than they are.  It’s so close I can taste it…shorts & flip flops, fresh fruit on a hot summer day, the smell of coconut lotion, spur of the moment bowling excursions, and best of all, no homework & no schedule!

Sum..sum..summertime here we come!

I’m so pumped about Sara Bareilles new album coming out this summer (July 16th)!  I love her songs and I’ve already been playing her single “Brave” over and over again.  If you haven’t heard it, you need to go buy it now.

Seriously…I’ll wait…

“Show me how big your brave is…say what you wanna say and let it all fall out…honestly…I wanna see you be brave”


She has this cool download on her website where you can post how you’re going to be brave.  That’s mine above.  Now show me yours!


Sequins & Glitter?  Yes please.  I’m attending my daughters vocal banquet on Sunday and I can’t wait to wear my new pink sequin pencil skirt that I got from the Limited on an insane sale ($12.50..oh yeah!).  Today I bought pink glitter polish to complete my outfit.  I’m going to paint it over the polish that’s currently on my toes to make them sparkle a little and it’s going to be the polish on my ring finger with Essie Mint Candy Apple on the rest of my fingers. Woot!

I am in love with Shannon Botakis’ work.  I have no idea where I would put one, but eventually she will have the perfect one for sale and I WILL have it for my house.  My favorites are “Sailing Away” and several of her new pieces seen here, specifically the first four and “How I Wish You Were Here”.

I have been on a huge shoe bender lately and just when I think I’ve got all my bases covered, I find another shoe I NEED.  No, really, I NEED it.  I have this amazeballs maxi dress that is just a smidge too long so it needs to be paired with a low wedge sandal, which of course, I don’t own.  I like this one and I adore this Chinese Laundry one, but I want more of a 2 in heel so they won’t work.  I ordered these from Target today.  The heel is the right height and they weren’t too expensive…Score!

Ugh…the VS annual swim sale catalog came today.  Please tell me I’m not the only one that isn’t ready for the swimsuit part of the summer?!  Nuff said.
