Happy Thoughts

I definitely have my share of bad days, and I pretty much always really struggle with working and going to graduate school at the same time. That being said, I have been in a good mood this week, and here are a few things making me smile.
1. First of all, FALL is here officially here in SC. As in, I have turned off the AC in our house. I am wearing tights with a dress today! I love cool, crisp weather.
2. This makeup sponge is the best one I've ever bought. You wet it before you use it to put on your foundation. I wear Chanel Lumiere foundation and love it. Most of my other makeup is drug store makeup, and I usually get it at Walgreens when I fill prescriptions.
3. The test I took yesterday  for my Introduction to Speech Science and Acoustic Measurement class was easier than I thought it would be. That is for sure something to smile about!
4. I figured out what I am making for our tailgate this Saturday on Monday of this week (thanks to Pinterest) and went ahead and made my grocery list. That made me feel like I am on top of things.
5. I usually do not watch tv during the week, but this week I have been watching 20 or 30 minutes of tv before bed. This week I am rewatching season 2 of OITNB b/c I feel asleep several times when I watched it back in the spring. It makes me feel like I actually have some free time or have more of a life than my same old routine of work, studying, dinner, and bedtime.
6. I've also been making it to pure barre 2X a week for several weeks now, and that feels like a big accomplishment with everything that I have going on.
7. TGIF is tomorrow. Yet something else to smile about.
Thanks for reading!

  1. YAY for Friday! What are you making for the tailgate?

  2. You are NOT lying when you talk about that makeup sponge. I seriously love it. Quick confession: I stock up on them. I think I have 5 saved in my makeup drawer haha

  3. I am hoping that the autumn weather actually stays...I won't be surprised if 90-degree heat is back one more time before winter.

  4. Hi! I just wandered over here from Julie Joy's blog and I am loving your blog already!!! I have that same sponge but mine is pink and I love it. I actually need to get another one because I have been using mine for quite some time now. I love finding new blogs to read and blogging friends to make (: Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!!
