Flats, Followers, & Freedom (or lack thereof)

Monday, August 27, 2012

First and foremost, for those of you with spouses who have to deploy or go on week + long business trips, kudos to you.  Nick goes away for a weekend and all of a sudden I don't know what to do with myself...  Sure, sure, I enjoy the "me" time and I'm just fine without him, but I hate being apart.  He had a great weekend with the boys & we can't wait to see them all again this upcoming weekend for Penn State Football Extravaganzas that are going down LDW.  More to come on that later in the week // next week though...

More importantly, this weekend marked the end of my freedom.  It's back to the real world today (womp womp), but don't you worry - I'm going back in style.  And well relaxed (I'm going to miss you 9am wake up calls...)  And well decorated (more to come on that later, too!)  Here's a little recap of my exciting by-myself-weekend:

I got 4 new pairs of flats delivered from Target (oopsies)...  LOVE them & know my feet will be very happy / comfy.  I can't decide if the cobalt blue or the pink flats are my favorite, but I know they'll make me happy when I look down and see them!  (cobalt | pink | grey | black


I noticed on Sunday that I had hit over 100 followers!  YAY :)  I hope you all stick around & enjoy your stay!  You'll get to see me make awkward faces (in dressing rooms at the GAP & F21) eat adorable shower favors (how cute/easy is this mallow?!), & if you're really lucky, eat/shop/document even more at my beloved Wegmans.  I'm so sorry if you don't have one of these locally.  Really really I am.   

You'll also get a taste of my "fashion" (or lack thereof) aaaaaaaaand a taste of my shopping problem.  I'm hoping the summer ending (and not having time on my hands) will help cure this illness.  But I have gotten tons of goodies at little to no cost, so I'm not going to complain!  (polka dot similar | navy similar | tribal top | green stripe similar | purple stripe similar | polka | navy stripe)

I don't know about you, but looking/feeling good eases the burn of a 6:30am alarm & long day at work!  That, and a few cups of coffee (hee hee).  I'll be putting my PSU tervis to good use I'm sure...

More excitement to come later in the week, but in the spirit of enjoying my last few moments (since I'm a Sunday night writer for a Monday post), I'm headed out to watch Taken (for the 20th time) and spend 1-on-1 time with Fi during our last "night off."

Hope you had a great weekend :)

my husband used to travel for work and I'd stay at my parents while he was gone because I hated it! love the flats! I have a shopping problem too - but I do get them for SOO cheap too. : ) Being back to work is helping me because now I have no time!

First of all, love getting shipments from Target! Hello, fancy shoes :) Also, I'm so happy to see you're a PSU fan, too! Have a great week!

I'm in a long distance relationship so I can definitely relate! After spending a long weekend with him, it's hard to get back to my "normal" routine.

Love the shoes!

I am so thankful that Ross doesn't haven't to travel either. I always get sad when he is away on a weekend fishing or hunting trip...especially having two small kids at home. Congrats on hitting over 100! That is awesome and well deserved! Keep it up! ;)

I completely agree and love that my husband doesn't travel. He was deployed with the military many years ago and that was bad enough. I need him home with me every night :) Love all of those flats girl! Hope your first day went well!
