Target Tuesdays!

Yay it's Tuesday!!!!!

I actually have not to been to Target in many weeks (I think this is a record for me!) but I hoping to go tonight to grab some groceries and take a peek at some fall/cold weather clothes. Today I'm rocking some of my favorite Target pieces:

I bought this cardigan months ago, but I'm wearing it today, paired with a grey jersey dress, black leggings and these black flats:

I also have these flats in tan, and while it took a couple of wears to break them in, they are definitely going to be my favorite fall shoe!

Speaking of fall footwear, I ordered these boots a few weeks ago on Target.com because of the many rave reviews. However, being 5'8", they only came up to my mid-calf and they just didn't look right. I was so upset, because I loved the style/color:

So I'll be returning this and starting my search again for the perfect brown boot!

Or, perhaps I'll use my refund to buy:



(which I posted about here!)

I have to say, fall is definitely one of my favorite seasons...don't get me wrong - I love me a good sundress and flip flops, but there's just something about the autumn air, changing leaves and cute fall clothes that get me really excited!!

What are you craving from Target lately?? Don't forget to link up at Tara's blog: www.fabulousbutevil.com

Could it be?

A new blog post after a month-long hiatus??

Yes, I am FINALLY updating the blog!

a) because I miss it,


b) because several people told me they missed it, too - aww :)

So much to write about, where do I even begin?? I think this calls for a bulleted list!

  • I am working at 2 new schools this year (same district) so I have roughly 600 students instead of 400 - joy! It's been a pretty smooth transition and I am slowly learning all the names and adjusting to my new schedule. I don't have Fridays off anymore, so that's been an adjustment, too!
  • Mars is ENORMOUS!! His most recent weigh-in was 65 lbs and he is exactly 5 months old today - our breeder/vet thinks he's going to be at least 100 lbs by the time he's done growing - good LORD!
  • I can't believe it was a year ago this weekend that we had our housewarming party! I'm loving that I can actually enjoy the season of fall this year and not be running around like a crazy lady trying to finish last minute projects, etc. I haven't even decorated my mantel for the new season yet - hopefully I'll have time this weekend since last weekend was a busy one!
  • We flew down to Key West last Friday to celebrate the wedding of one of my best friend's from college. I lived with Corey senior year and then 2 years later we moved into an apartment in South Boston and became very close friends. We had an amazing weekend and it all went by so fast! We're hoping to plan a visit with the newlyweds a few months from now (they recently moved to NC) when the weather in New England starts to get ugly!!
  • Speaking of weddings, we have SEVEN next year!!!! 1 in March, 1 in May, 2 in June, 2 in July and 1 in August...whew, I got tired just typing that out...The good news (I guess it's good??) is that I'm not in any of them, but I'll be singing at most of them.  
Ok, time for some pictures to wrap up this post!

The iconic buoy in Key West!

Such a fun, beautiful and love-filled wedding!

My gift to the newlyweds - an idea I saw on Pinterest and just HAD to try! I really love how it came out (and they loved it too! Yay!!)

Ok, so I am really going to try and update this thing more often. We're planning to rearrange a few rooms soon, and I have lots of "furniture projects" in the near future that I'll be blogging about too!

Not to mention "Target Tuesdays!!!" My favorite!!
