Day One ~ Favorite Song

Okay, so here it is, Day One of this blogging challenge. So we are asked, "what is your favorite song?" Anyone who knows me, knows that I seem to have a new favorite song all the time. Here are a list of my current & alltime favs:

*Empire State of Mind ~ Alicia Keys & Jay Z. I just ♥ this song SO much. Maybe because it gets my bootay moving or maybe because its been my dream to move to NYC for so long. (Thanks Jess for our first trip to NYC together, after that I was obsessed).

*Need You Now ~ Lady Antebellum. Really I love any of their songs. Such a talented group. But this one reminds me of some real life situations I've dealt with.

*She's Everything ~ Brad Paisley. This song just has some really personal old memories attached to it and has a special place in my heart. I am just now able to listen to it again without shedding a tear ;)

*Sweet Home Alabama ~ Lynyrd Skynyrd. I mean come on, who wouldn't love this old classic?

*Settlin' ~ Sugarland. SUMS UP MY LIFE COMPLETELY!!!

30 Day Challenge

I just read on my dear friend Jess', blog about this awesome challenge her and her friend Claire are doing and thought I'd join in on the fun! I don't know about ya'll but I have really started to fall in love with blogging,{I'll be honest, I seem to love to read more than write myself}.

I love Tuesdays!


Can I just tell you how much I love Tuesdays? Since starting school again, my employer has been so gracious to lessen my workload and give me a day off during the week to focus on school and more importantly, myself. This term it happens to be Tuesdays ... oh and how I look forward to them each week :)

Yesterday was quite productive. I managed to get a lot of studying done, took Roxie for a walk, went to the gym, went to class, and even had time to bake some Valentine treats! Here is my first attempt at Red Velvet Cupcakes, and I do have to admit they turned out to be pretty yummy :)



Happy Wednesday Ya'll!

My Current Want ...


So now that I own my own home, I have found myself becoming obsessed with home decor magazines. Country Living, Southern Living, Pottery Barn, Crate & Barrel, Better Homes & Gardens, just to name a few... Anyway, I've had my eye on these lanterns from Pottery Barn for quite.some.time.now.
Cute, check. Perfect for my current decorating motif, check. Expensive, CHECK CHECK! I've gone rounds and rounds with trying to justify paying over $100 for these three little items and just can't find it in my budget currently. I told myself, Angela, you deserve these, you work hard, and go to school, but I still couldn't bring myself to take out the ole' Visa.
Yesterday, as a sudden turn of fate, after returning home from school where I got my grade back on my midterm I completely bombed, and being in a HORRIBLE mood, I checked the mail and what did I receive??? My very thoughtful old supervisor had sent me a congratulations card with a giftcard to Pottery Barn. How sweet!! I was so excited! Now I can get my lanterns after all ...
