So, I really like these earrings.
I like them a whole bunch.
I like em a few whole bunchs.
They are only $25.
Halloween is coming up, I think they would be a very lovely halloween present.
P.S i Like the white and gold ones, the puple is cute too but the white ones will go with more.
See how practical and responsible i'm being?
so um if you are bored and thinking about what to do with $25,
you can get them here.

If you look, you can find something beautiful in everyone.
I'm a big people watcher, it is one of my favorite things to do.
I also LOVE to compliment, i never feel stupid approaching a stranger and telling them i like their dress/ they have gorgeous hair or i just LOVE those shoes!
I was at Yankee stadium a few weeks ago and the girl in front of me was wearing a gorgeous lacy dress. Might sound fancy but it was casual enough for daytime.
I didn't think twice before asking where she bought it and telling her she looked great in it.
She smiled, I'm sure it made her day (or at least her hour).
I smiled, because i love seeing the joy that even a little, if superficial, compliment can give.

I don't even open them.
I don't want to do this, but i must.
It is for my own good.
Banana Republic.... Delete
Urban Outfitters... delete
Anthropologie.......... delete while closing my eyes and using the utmost self control!
Zappo's deleeeeeete (i have plenty of shoes)
The list goes on.
Maybe i should unsubscribe from them, then i won't even be tempted to take a peek.
Buuuuut, what if i miss a REALLY good sale?
I've decided that it's not a real good sale if it's an item that i don't need.
And let's face it....... i don't need a thing.

admit she once weighed 130 lbs.) This happened because she would try to cover up her
feelings with food. This is the girl who just 7 months ago weighed 110lbs (now she is 97).
She was disgusted with herself, she couldn't fathom how her boyfriend could still love her
while she was "fat".Side note: 110 lbs is a perfectly healthy weight for her height. She was
confused about why her boyfriend treated her with the same love and respect he treated her
with when she was "skinny".She thinks this past year tested their relationship; it passed
with flying colors.This is the girl who is OVERWHELMED with joy that she found this loving
man and will have the pleasure of spending her enitire life with him.This is the girl who is
finally refusing to let her irrational fears hold her back any longer. She is willing to
pursue her dreams despite her fear of failure.
I am the girl who hope's that this post will in some tiny way help someone else to escape
her ridiculous fears.
This is the girl who is greatful to "@madwomanmeg" for posting a link to this article on
She is greatful; it is the only way to be.
She has decided she hates the idea of Pefection.
Excuse my language but, FUCK PERFECTION!
She is grateful that you are reading this.
What would you do, if you knew you could not fail?

Realizing how much "vanity sizing" is going on. Seriously, I measured my waist yesterday, it is 26 inches yet half of the jeans I own are size 24's. (I also own 26's and 27's, they all fit EXACTLY the same way)Do they think they need to lie to me to get me to buy the jeans? I think this just make girls obsess more about getting down to the tiniest size. (Which in most cases is unattainable & super unhealthy!)
My cats. Oh my, I'm going to miss them SO much. I told my mom the other day that it will be harder to leave the cats than it will be to leave my family & friends. Before you start thinking I'm completely nuts, wait for my reason.......I can talk to my family on the phone all the time and still feel connected, I can't exactly have phone convo's w/ my kitty siblings. Perhaps we can skype?
Thinking about new, fun ways to wear last years fall clothes (& the few items I may or may not have purchased recently). My shopping addiction is ending RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW. (at least for a little while) I promised Rob last night. I have to realize it's not just about me anymore. I have to think about us; we have a HUGE move coming up. I need to start being a tad bit more responsible (& perhaps less selfish) & saving. Ya know, so maybe i can contribute more than my cuteness to our new apartment. ;)
I can't wait to get the sweater and belt I ordered from Anthro yesterday. I'll post pics when they arrive. :)
(They were on sale, it was my last hurrah, sue me.)
What do YOU love today?

Have you seen this movie?
I watched it about two months ago with my good friend & neighbor, Jenn.
I liked it.
It was weird.
There was alot of sex going on for an afternoon movie with a girlfriend!
I love Amanda Seyfried in Big Love, it's one of my favorite shows.
I was a tad bit shocked at her performance in this film.
If you've seen it, what did you think?

I've always thought that giving "happies" is the best way to get "happies".
Give: a random phone call to a girlfriend you haven't spoke to in a while
What can YOU give to get a happy?

my BESTEST BOY!
getting packages in the mail
for that matter ANY mail in the mail that's not a bill
girl crushes on fellow bloggers
feeling inspired to try/do new things
knowing the world is what i make it (and how i see it is NOT always how it really is)
knowing i can choose to see things positively
being at my happy weight despite eating cheese danishs & other indulgent yummies
the cool breeze that's fighting it's way in
crossing things off said list
highlighting stuff in my day planner
folding laundry (especially if it's washed with GAIN)
thinking about future adventures
pausing to admire little things i might miss
driving home from work w/ the windows down

Quality time with your cat is good for both pet and human alike.
Research shows that petting a cat evens out human brain waves associated with depression and increases human brain waves associated with anxiety relief and positive feelings. After a mere 5 minutes of affection, your cat will experience lower blood pressure and positive neurochemical changes, as well.
I completely agree w/ the folks @ cat age.
How could the sight of my little squirrel, soaking up the sun, not make you feel happy?
Feeling blue? Go pet a kitty :) haha
Sometimes, I feel like I can completely relate to this woman ;)
Having & spending money is fun; but it's so easy (for me) to go a little overboard.
The initial rush of a purchase only lasts a few minutes (or, maaaybee a few hours).
But....this weekend made me realize that time spent with family and good friends is worth so much more than any little item I think I "need".
What makes you (MUCH) happier than shopping??

1- (almost) every night i come home from work to a super yummy dinner made by Rob. (i don't get home from work till 9:30 or later so he's in charge of dinner) :)
2- Squirrel's (my cat) nightly ritual of circling around the bed w/ her seahorse toy, making very strange meows/yelps.This must be done every night prior to cuddling up with us.
3- That im in my last semeseter of school & im pretty excited about all of my classes. I can not wait to (finally) receive my diploma. :)
4-My engagement ring, it's yellow gold w/ a pear shaped diamond; exactly what i wanted. I can't believe i haven't posted a picture of it on here yet; i will have to work on that!
5-That i had the best time @ an all day wine tasting trip with all of my girlfriends last saturday, for my friendly Melissa's bachleorette party! (no skeevy strippers for us; we have class! haha)
6- I finally started reading My Dog Tulip. Krystal @ Village made me want to read it, after posting the most hysterical video about it!
7-My future mother -in -law (yess i actually like my future M-I-L, she's super fun) & her Boyfriend are coming to visit this weekend. We have tons of fun things planned; A Yankee game, picnic & wandering around the city. I need to see all of the "sights" i've never seen (even though i've lived on long island for 26 years) before our big move!
8- Thinking about our big move & all the exciting furniture we are going to buy. Yup i'm sooooooooo excited about furniture. I'm also pretty darn excited about buying gain laundry detergent; it smells sooooooooo good!! hehe. You can think i'm weird; i don't mind :).
