Currently September!!

Ok so here's what's currently going on!

Listening: My hubby and dog can fall asleep so quickly. I'm much more of a night owl so that explains why I'm awake at this hour. I am pretty much nocturnal over the summer when there's no alarm set.

Loving: I am loving this 3 day weekend. We were able to go up to Pittsburgh to visit my husband's grandma. We went to Ribfest at Heinz Field and hung out with my in-laws and nephew. We've been travelling a ton lately and it's nice to see them so often. We'll see them again in 2 weeks!

Thinking: Of course my mind is on Tuesday- it's our first day of school! Yep, that's right, we still haven't started school yet.

Wanting: Lots of fall clothes! I just signed up for Stitch Fix and spent the night on Pinterest making my perfect stitch fix pinterest board. If you'd like to check out Stitch Fix click {here}. It's like Netflix but for clothes from a personal stylist. They get your measurements and you create a personal style quiz. Then you can create a pinterest board for them to look at while they're styling a box of 5 items for you!

Needing: I have been DYING of allergies. I'm not sure if they're indoor or outdoor allergies.. I've never had allergies like this before. My eyes are swollen shut and I could barely breathe on Friday. I've been taking Allegra and medicated eye drops and I guess I'll just have to make a doctor's appointment next.

3 Trips: I've been to Italy but it has so many different cities, I'd love to go back. I also flew through Germany once and was amazed and so want to go back, but I wanted to choose places that were really diverse for this! So I chose Ireland, Bora Bora and Budapest. Ireland is my family's homeland so that's pretty self-explanatory. Oh and plus irish accents? Swoon!! The Hilton at Bora Bora is just too picturesque to resist. And then Budapest has always intrigued me. But if I could add a fourth it would be Greece because I love Greek food. Clearly I just need to backpack around the world.


  1. Oh man, I am totally with you on Bora Bora. I said French Polynesia on mine. Bora Bora would be top of that list. Especially in an overwater bungalow.

    Very jealous you are just now returning to school. We've been back at it for two weeks :(

  2. I start school on Tuesday too! I also would love new fall clothes. Enjoy your Monday!

  3. We have Ireland in common. I've heard it's just spectacular. I need some new clothes as well. I am thinking about signing up for stitch fix

  4. How lucky to just be starting after Labor Day! We will be on day 13. Try not to stress about it and enjoy your Monday!!

  5. I love fall clothes! I live in Las Vegas however, so fall literally doesn't come around till the end of October! I am originally from Ohio and that is one this I miss...the leaves and weather in the fall!
    Good Luck on your first day of school!!!

  6. Ireland is so beautiful! I miss it! I did a study abroad program there for 4 months! Such a trip of a life time! I highly recommend going:)

  7. I filled out my StitchFix profile yesterday but haven't scheduled my first fix yet. I am waiting. But starting a pinterest board sounds like a great idea - maybe I'll steal some looks from your board! I also start on Tuesday - I am excited to get started, but dreading the end of summer as well. It just hasn't been long enough. Good luck with the new year!

  8. We start Tuesday as well! I hope I'm ready haha! :)

    I TOTALLY want to try Stitch Fix but they aren't for volumptuous ladies like myself :( I think it would be super fun to get new items every new and then. Oh well. Maybe some day. I did, however, spoil myself rotten and bought about $350 worth of new clothes last weekend for school. I'm excited to have some cute new stuff to wear (even for a big girl like myself haha)

  9. I want to try Stitch Fix, but we really don't need to spend the extra money right now. I'm scared they'll send me a bunch of pieces that I just can't say no to. Good luck tomorrow!

    Don't Let the Teacher Stay Up Late

  10. Great trip choices! I'd love to go to all those places as well. I wish that Stitch Fix shipping to Canada so I could get in on the party. I hope you get the fall clothes you're after.

  11. Stitch Fix sounds wonderful, but money is tight right now. I am being very careful about what I buy! I hope those allergies go away soon. The ragweed has been bad here! Have a fun first day of school!!

    Reading Toward the Stars

  12. I didn't put Ireland on mine, but it's definitely in the top 5 - especially since my husband is Irish. We are a house full of allergy sufferers as well - I hope they go away quickly!
