my favorite purchase of the weekend: it's odd.

This past weekend I went shopping at the mall since I now live 5 minutes away instead of 50.  Must.Stay.Away.  Although I purchased a few new items for myself, my favorite purchase of the day is a bit strange, but I have an obsession with these things. 

Hangers.  Not just any old hanger, but the heavy-duty, store hangers.  You know what I'm talking about.  The ones that you ask for every time you buy a new piece of clothing.  Or at least I do. 

I have so many because I always ask for them at checkout.  I love them because I hang up most of my clothes to dry and the hangers prevent the shoulder marks, plus it's super easy to hang up my pants. 

I am now the proud owner of probably 30 new hangers and I couldn't be happier.  I went into Delia's with my little cousin because the store was going out of business.  As I walked in, the store was mostly cleared out with just the skeleton of the store left, but on one wall a sign read 'Hangers: fill a bag for $2.' 

Come again - $2, you say?!  Yep, I was sold. 

I proudly crammed as many of those beauties as I could into the bag and walked out with a smile. 

I am thrilled to stick these in my closet and put them to use.  I'm so weird, but it's exciting!

Does anyone else love these as much as I do?!

weekend daydreams...

Happy weekend. 

This is the first Sunday morning in a long time [like 2 months] that I've actually been able to get up, drink my tea, put my dance music on, and relax for a second [or two] before the day begins.  We have been running around like crazy for the last couple months and I think things are getting back to good again. 

This morning I'm sitting here thinking of some things I'm wishing for.  I feel a bit like Veruca from Charlie & the Chocolate Factory, being that selfish little brat, wanting things now!  I really loathe waiting and I have no patience.... It's just that I like things and I want them now, although my bank account tells me otherwise, and my hubs would kill me. 

But, here are a few things I'm wanting to snatch up real soon!

Check out this amazing camera bag.  It's perfect!  I am in desperate need for a cute/purse like camera bag.  My camera is too precious and expensive to keep being carried in its current bag and so I ran across this one.  I can't wait to order it.  Check out Darby Mack and look through the rest of her bags.  I guarantee you will be impressed!!  So glad I ran across her.

This happens to be a dress that I've been longing for.  It is just what I've been looking for: picture-perfect, simple yet sexy, cute.  I don't think it's going to work out, however, because I want it for my cousin's wedding.  Isn't there a rule that says you're not supposed to wear white/cream to a wedding, unless you're the bride, or something like that?? I'm all about rule breaking, but I also don't want to look like a tool.

I am all for having that dewy/luminescent look, especially for summer.  I have lots of different highlighters, but this one sold me at 'supermodel in a bottle.'  I want to glow this summer!

I have been eyeing these cuties for months.  Still haven't gotten a pair, but they are always on my wish list.  I love slip-ons and these should suit me quite well, I think.  In black.

Sadly, this isn't really something that I can go out an buy tomorrow, but I am missing my pool!  I just found out our condos aren't included in the neighborhood pool and I am pissed!  It's so hot here and I am missing the pool at my parents.  A bit of advice, if you currently have a pool, don't take it for granted (:

I also wouldn't mind a bit of a thunderstorm, too.  We desperately need rain, but a nice mix of clouds, thunder, and lightning would suit me just fine.

What have you been wishing for this weekend??

settling in....

I hate being a bad blogger with my lack of posts, but hopefully things will be better now. 

Praise the Lord, because the move is complete.  We've lived in our new condo for a week now and things are great.  We now have the daunting task of unpacking, organizing, and more organizing.  The adjusting part is easy.  Or so far it has been at least.  I don't miss my old town or house as much as I thought I would and that has definitely made the transition easier. 

Hopefully in the next few weeks I'll be back in full force, but in the meantime, this is what is occupying my free time when I'm not working 12 hour nite shifts at the hospital.

a few of my favorite pins!

I found some pretty cool things on pinterest this week!  I sure wish I had the time & money to buy/do everything that I see, but until then, I'll keep dreaming and sharing what I find!
