1. First and foremost ...

THANK YOU to the men and women of the armed forces - past, present, and future.  May God bless you and your families.

2. It has looked like this....

almost every morning this week.  I kinda love fog.  It just says Fall, don't ya think?  I especially love it when it burns off and turns into a beautifully crisp, sunny day (preferably by no later than 10:00 a.m.)  That, however, does not always happen 'round here ....

3. I {heart} three-day weekends.  I think they should be a weekly requirement.  Amen.

4. Anyone else watching The X Factor and LOVING it!?  I am finding it SO hard to choose a favorite though!  I love all of the girls (Simon's group) - and then there's Chris ... and Josh .... and.... well, I really just love them all.  Who's your favorite...?

5. Lucy got this magic wand for her birthday...
(Thank you Uncle Wes, and Sarah, and family...)
She L-O-V-E-S this thing.  Me...?  Not so much.  It makes a lovely magical sound every time you push the button ... and the lights are pretty cool to look at .... but I get to hear that sound approximately 5,295 times a day.  I think the magic wand might need to "get lost" soon ....

6.  There are 43 days 'til Christmas, and I haven't even thought about buying a single present.  Ugh.  I have the hardest time with Christmas shopping!  I always want so badly to get everyone the perfect gift, but I can never seem to come up with that perfect gift idea when I really need to!

7.  My friend and her twin daughters came over for breakfast this morning, and one of the things I made was this....
(Thank you, Pinterest!)
Buttermilk-Blueberry Breakfast Cake from Alexandra's Kitchen.  It was a WINNER!  Super moist, perfect amount of blueberries (I like that there are almost more berries than cake), and altogether yummy.  Highly recommend.    

8.  I am no longer a hunting widow.  Hallelujah!

9.  I am dying for this Marc Jacobs bag. 
The price?
Not so divine.
If any of you have connections with Santa, I'd appreciate you dropping the hint... :)~

10.  I may or may not have eaten an entire (large) bag of these in the last two days.
Why do they have to be SO DARN GOOD!?!  

11.  And last but not least ...
I did this this morning .... and I'm planning to do it again in a few hours.  (Do you think that means I will have double the wishing power...?  I sure hope so...)
I figure it's worth a shot, right?  
Here's to hoping all of our wishes come true!  


  1. I have to agree with the "Thank you, Pinterest" comment. I have made that blueberry breakfast cake about five times since I pinned it in August. LOVE It!

  2. Love the blueberry breakfast cake. May have to make this soon! Looks yummy. I love your purse too (or hopefully future purse!). If you get tired of the wand I know a little boy who would love to bug us with it (he was trying to grab that out of Lucy's hand every time I turned around). Although Ryan might have a fit over him playing with a princess wand : ) See you tomorrow!


Thank you for your comments!
I love EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. :-)
