School and work have been going pretty well for me, and I actually feel like I have time for a social life this semester. It is a relief after some difficult classes I've had in my program previously. I've been using my spare time, since I have a little bit of it, to watch Netflix (yesterday I binged on Revenge) and to read. Over the weekend I finished The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty. It is suspenseful, and the characters are likeable. I highly recommend it. Tonight I am starting another book by the same author.

Little gallery wall I'm working on in our dining room
Close up on a shadow box I made with items from our wedding
Mirror I found at HomeGoods for the dining room
Bed, Bath, & Beyond frame we got off our registry
This throw is a recent Rue La La find I had to share if because I love it

Miss Georgia, Maggie Bridges. Georgia is another competitive pageant, and their swimsuit competition is top notch. You will hardly see a girl at state that is soft. This is going to sound super creepy, but I may or may not keep a photo of a former Miss GA contestant on my computer to reference for fat shaming myself. I am joking about the fat shaming. Sort of. Sometimes I think that's the only thing that works with me. I have to motivate myself somehow, and sometimes my inner bully is the only one who can do so. Sad but true!

TGIF! This was a wonderful week because it was short. I think every weekend should be a three day weekend.
1. Fall. I am ready for it. Google tells me the first official day of Fall is September 22. Bring on the cool crisp weather.
I took this last year at a Pumpkin Sale
2. Speaking of fall, this list. I am guilty of having already ordered my fall and winter Scentsy bars, and I can't wait to decorate for Halloween.
3. I texted my hair stylist Laura this morning because I miss my highlights.
4. After reading about these Sam Edelman shoes on every fashion blogger's site all summer, I finally scooped up a pair from Amazon. I have Amazon Prime, which just makes it that much easier to pull the trigger. I wore them this week, and absolutely love them. I got the ones with black straps, and I may end up buying another color because these are the kind of shoes you wear all the time.
5. Yesterday Food Lion had Yellow Tail Chardonnay on sale, so I got two bottles for the weekend. Hopefully the Gamecocks will play a little bit better this week, and there will be cause to celebrate.
Have a wonderful weekend!

We had a low key weekend at home. I got a lot of housework done, as well as some studying. While that is not the most fun or glamorous way to spend a long weekend, it needed to be done. I love crossing things off my to do list, so that felt good.
Here is another room in our house, the kitchen. I spend a good bit of my time here, and I study at the little breakfast area just off the kitchen.
Looking from the living area
I would like to get some bar stools to go here
salt and pepper shakers we got in the Bahamas
rug from Pier One
Fleur de Lis trivet
I know red is not the most original choice for a kitchen, but I love the warmth it adds. I've seen some truly gorgeous kitchens done in white and light colors, and while that would probably flow into the living area better, I just love the bright cheery red.
It is a hot humid day today in Columbia, SC, and I am so very ready for some cooler weather. Today I work until 5, go to pure barre, then home to have a bite for dinner and study. It feels like a long first day back after the long weekend. Stay cool everyone!
