Life this Week

Happy Saturday Lovelies! I normally on not Blog on Saturday's as I am normally at work, I wasn't feeling good this morning. I hope everyone had a wonderful week, I cannot believe Christmas is Friday! How crazy is that?! 

I love when Becca does these kinds of Posts. These posts are great when there is so much excitement going on to document. 

  • This week I have been dealing with a lot excitement, at work on Thursday My manager and 2 other managers decided to do a "fun" section meeting, we were all really confused, but it turned out that the 3 managers decided to go out and buy gifts for all of us, on these 3 teams there are 27 of us, and they threw a White Elephant party. It was fun it kind of boosted the morale a little bit. I got stuck with a Crock Pot, but hey I cannot complain because I will keep my fancy one for home stuff and this one for parties and such. Good idea right? 
  • I am kind of upset this year, I decided not to do Christmas Cards..I see all of these posts this week regarding Christmas Cards.. I know bummer right.. We just didn't have any time to get pictures taken, and I didn't see any pictures that I had that I liked from this year. But next year I have decided that I am going to do a Christmas Card and make an appointment for us to get our pictures made. 
  • My Christmas shopping is almost done.. way to wait until the last minute... I have a few more things to get my hubs.. I have 2 gifts still to buy for tonight's Christmas Party. 
  • Last night we had out Church Group's Ugly Sweater/White Elephant Christmas Party, ya'll there were some amazing gifts going around last night, I was particular excited about the one Matt and I got. 2 Coffee Mugs, Planner, Starbucks Card, and 2016 mini Planner. Super Cute.
  • I want to see Star Wars so bad, but I think we are just going to have to wait a minute before we see it. Opening Weekend.. Yea I doubt we will get any tickets. 
  • This Weekends Plans: Church Group Christmas Party Last Night, my Families Christmas Party tonight, Shopping maybe on Sunday and Monday Dr's. Appointment and relaxing! 

I hope you all have a good rest of the weekend!

Top 3 Tuesday

So here we are again on a Tuesday. I am going to do another rendition of Top 3 Tuesday. What made me happy today or this past week. 

TOP 3 TUESDAY: 

1. I went to my 3rd annual Favorite Things Party at my Best Friend's house on Sunday, we had so much fun full have wine laughs and girl talk and of course presents. But that was not the most important thing. 

2. My Husband got home before me today... ya'll it took me an hour and 15 to get home from work. Anyway.. I got home about 5:45 and he had a glass of wine poured for me and he was cooking dinner for us. Its the small things. 

3. The Fact that Elf is coming on next on ABC Family. One of my All time favorite Christmas Movies. I think all week and next week I am going to watch one Christmas movie a night. I love Christmas movies. Maybe my husband will watch them with me. 

What 3 things made you happy today or this past week.

Anticipating this upcoming Thanksgiving, it is finally the Holiday Season! I am so excited this is my favorite time of year! 

Cleaning  nothing at all. I am super Thankful though my husband cleaned the entire town house today! He is amazing! It looks so good in this place! 

Dreading ummm nothing really.. I guess one would be going to work tomorrow and Wednesday. I just want it to be Thursday!

Drinking Peach-Pear La Croix! Yummy! it is my favorite drink. We have been drinking a lot of Sparkling Flavored Water. We are trying to cut back on Soda, so this is the next best. I must say I am really enjoying these. 

Feeling happy and content. 

Listening to the TV I am watching Blindspot. It is so good! So mainly Gun shots. Lol. Yes it is on the show. 

Playing not a damn thing. I don't play online games, although I have tried multiple times, it does not work for me. 

Reading See Me by Nicholas Sparks. Still so freaking good. And I have actually  began reading again The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. Yes, I am multitasking by reading 2 books at once. I get asked that question how? My answer.. I don't really know. It depends on the mood I am in. 

Recovering from a major headache I had this morning. Thankfully it stopped hurting after a minute, but oh my gosh it hurt so bad this morning. 

Trying to decide what to do with my career at this point in my life. 

Waiting on dinner. Chicken Parmesan, that my lovely husband made. 

Walking I am not walking I am sitting on my butt behind the coffee table watching TV.

Wearing Jeans and a Tan-ish off white long sleeve shirt. I need to change though into my comfy clothes.

Birthday Timeline

So I guess I should update you guys on my birthday, as ya'll know I turned 29 on Monday, and this was probably by far one of the best birthday's I have had in a while. Of course all birthday's are great but this one I was able to spend all day with my mom, got to spend time with my husband and best friend. 

Birthday Timeline:

7:00 AM: Birthday girl wakes up,  why? I have no idea but I guess I was excited that it was my birthday, I started off with a lovely cup of coffee and if you follow me on Instagram then you know what my morning started off like. I had bought a new coffee creamer Cinnamon Vanilla Creme, ya'll it was delicious. Below is the picture I took and posted on Instagram. 

 

 

8:00-9:00 AM: My Husband made me a delicious homemade waffle with our waffle maker and put banana's and strawberry jam. Delicious. While catching up on my favorite Fall TV shows.. Quantico and Blindspot. Then Matt tells me "babe you should probably get ready because your mom will probably call soon" well hell if he wasn't right. Thankfully I started getting ready when he told me to. Lol. Sure enough my mom calls me as I am finishing up getting ready to meet her. 

10:00-11:00: Mom calls me and has me meet her at Bantam and Biddy my favorite brunch places. I ordered a Cheddar Biscuit with Chicken and Pimento Cheese. She then tells me "so after we eat we will head to Phipps Plaza to pick out your birthday gift" (hello big smile) Phipps Plaza is the High End Mall here in Atlanta, where the stores at this mall include Tory Burch, Saks Fifth Avenue, Gucci, Tiffany and Co, and so many more. I do not go this mall very often as I cannot afford anything at this mall. 

11:30-12:30: Arrive at Phipps Plaza, go to Tory Burch (Heaven!) I had my mind set on a specific bag that I wanted which was from their Britten Collection and I had originally picked out Tory Burch Britten Tote ya'll it was in the shopping bag ready to go, but no ma'am I was not done, I was still looking around, and my mom geared me toward another bag in a totally different collection, Tory Burch York Buckle Tote and I fell in love with the bag, was I done? umm nope.. I was still looking around and found the cutest pair of Ballet Flats. The Logo Minnie Travel Ballet Flat they were so freaking comfortable I was sold. So really for the price of one bag I got a Bag and a Pair of shoes, I would say we got a pretty good deal. 

Hello Beautiful!    12:30-1:30: Mom and I walk into Saks to head out but Mom wanted to stop in at Louis Vuitton so we did just that. Let's just say she walked away a happy camper.    1:30-2:00: Head back towards out neck of the woods and go get our Nails and Toes done, Lord knows I needed that so bad. We went to Piedmont Nail Bar and had a relaxing time getting those done. Mom took me back to my car to head home to spend some time with my husband before we all went out to dinner.   4:00-5:00: I met my best friend for a drink and appetizers at Marlow's Tavern, we each had a glass of Conn Creek Cab, if you have not tried this you need to. It is a little more on the expensive side but so worth the money. We talked and hung out.   5:00-6:45: I came home from drinks and appetizers and got to relax for about 2 hours as we were meeting for dinner at 7:00. Again I was playing catch up with my shows, until it was time to leave.   7:00-8:30: Me, Matt and my Parents met at El Felix for dinner, it is a Mexican restaurant and it is delicious, we normally do Cheesecake Factory but I wanted to change it up a little bit and go somewhere different. Good decision on my part. Spent time with my parents and enjoyed their company.   Now I know ya'll are like what about Matt? What did he get you? Well, he says my gift won't be here for another week or so. Shipping.. I have no idea. But once I get it I will let you guys know!   Well, that sums up what happened on my birthday, needless to say I was tired that night. It was a busy day. Getting spoiled on my 29th!! As my best friend used as a hashtag #making29lookohsofine yes ma'am that is correct!!   Xoxo, Erin  Follow Me:   Facebook  ~  Twitter  ~  Pinterest  ~  Bloglovin

Well howdy ya'll its been a minute! What is going on lately with me.. Well, lets do a Currently Post. 

C U R R E N T L Y

Missing.. umm.. I don't think I am missing too much.. besides my husband.. but that is a dead given. 

Watching... Dancing With the Stars.. The Premier.. Ya'll I am talking Monday night's episode. The Falcons game was on ABC on Monday so it did not air here until 1:00 am.. Nope I was asleep.. About to watch Paula Deen dance. 

Wanting... Everything Tory Burch. I don't know why.. But her stuff is so darn cute!! 

Listening.. to DWTS. The songs. Lol

What are you Currently up to?

Finish This

So I was looking in the archives from my old Blog. Which I still have but I just don't post anything there at all. I found this one and I thought hmmm lets do this again and see if my answers have changed any. So here we go.. 

Finish This:

When I open up the fridge I always hope I find anything. I open the Pantry more so than the fridge though. #Truth

this answer did not change... 

My favorite article of clothing is my dresses, the maxi dresses at that. They are so comfortable, with some flip flops. Most comfy thing ever. 

Last week I was really pissed when ummm I don't think I was really pissed off at much. Except my job. But that hasn't changed in months. 

One thing nobody really understands about me  is my love for romantic movies. I am a sucker for these movies. I am a huge romance junkie. 

One thing I don't understand is why people don't listen to employees . Again this goes back to my job. But I will not go into detail about that. 

The world would be a better place if people were a little nicer.. in general. I will never understand the whole being an asshole thing.

If I had a million dollars I'd pay off all of our debt and then we would buy a house and then I would get a new car.. whoa.. big dreamer there.. 

If I could change one thing about myself, it would be to have more confidence in myself. I have a slight issue with confidence. 

Something that can always make me happy is my life. I have an incredible life. Of course there are some flaws, but who doesn't have flaws. I have an incredible husband who takes care of me, who treats me with respect, who loves me for me and would never change a thing about me. I have an incredible family. Oh and big ole glass of wine or cup of coffee

Something I will never Blog about is the stuff that I wouldn't want the World Wide Web to know. 

If I could go anywhere I would go to Paris or Europe. Just seeing that culture would be amazing. My parents went to Europe and they loved it. 

If I were an animal I would be a puppy or a horse. Why a horse. I have know idea I guess because they are just beautiful with no care in the world. A puppy because they are just adorable. You can't ever say no to them. 

A Job I have always wanted is something in Law. Like an Attorney or a Detective. I have always found the law fascinating. 

My idea of a perfect day would be just a day to sleep in until at least 9 yea I cannot sleep in passed 9 ever. Enjoying a day on a boat or at a lake with a lovely cookout or a Dranky Drink with the people I love the most. 

How would you finish these sentences? 

Xoxo, E 

 

 

When Your Having a Bad Day....

Okay, so everyone has bad days right? I know I have lately. Because of certain things.  But I was catching up on some of my favorite reads and came across this idea... I need to remember this.. 

Read This When Your Need Something to Smile About:

I am happy when I eat healthy
When I laugh out loud to something, even the smallest things
When my Husband brings me Flowers.. Just because... 
When my husband tells me he misses me and tells me to have a good day 
When I have a good work out
When my mom tells me she loves me 
When my dog and cat greet me at the door when I walk in from work after being in traffic
I am glad to have friends who care 
Glad to have family 
Glad to know that someone is watching me from above 
Glad to know I count on my best friend 
Glad when my husband comes home and kisses me
I love when seasons change 
I love fall weather 
I love having Starbucks in the morning 
I love being able to wake up every morning and thanking God for giving me another day 
I am flattered when someone gives me a compliment 
I am flattered when I get smiled at even by strangers 
Flattered that there are some amazing people out there 
I think everyone gets lost sometimes when they have a bad day I know I do and what better way to get in a happy mood by coming up with things that your Happy, Glad, Love, and Flattered by. 
They always say it is the little things that matter most. I think people forget that. 

"Every day we have plenty of opportunities to get angry, stressed or offended. But what you're doing when you indulge these negative emotions is giving something outside yourself power over your happiness. You can choose to not let little things upset you."

Joel Osteen
