Labor Day Weekend.

Yay for long weekends!  This week has been quite wonderful. It has went super fast, I can’t even believe today is already Friday. Time to head home to Kendallville and spend some time with my family for Labor Day weekend.  We’ve had amazing weather this week in Indianapolis but it is supposed to rain all weekend due to the Hurricane. The hot temperatures have finally cooled down and we’re getting a taste of autumn and I’m loving it. I am over dressing for 90 degree days and ready for the Fall weather. 

This weekend my mom’s sister and her family are going to be in town from Missouri. We are going to spend time with them on Sunday, do a little shopping, and hopefully lay by the pool if the rain holds off.  I will be spending a lot of time this weekend out with friends, eating lots of food, watching movies and sleeping in tons.


I just found out that Jason Mraz is going to be performing at Klipcsh Music Center in Indianapolis September 14th! There is nothing better than outside concerts especially in September when the weather starts getting cooler 🙂

High Low Skirt Obession.

One of my favorite trends right now is the high-low skirt.  I love how they are shorter in the front and taper down the back. Some going the full length of a maxi skirt. They’re perfect for Fall weather, a mix between a short summery skirt and a longer one for the cooler days. 

I believe that every human has a finite number of heartbeats and I don’t intend to waste any of mine.

New Shoes.

I finally splurged today and bought new Brooks running shoes. They were named best running performance footwear of Spring 2012 so I am excited to try them out and see what all of this hype is about. They should be here in a couple of days so I will have to see how they compare to the Asics that I have been buying for years now!  

( Hey, look Kate Gosselin has the same blue Brooks Pure Cadence shoes )


I don’t know about you but I love Fall. With August coming to an end and September being right around the corner these cooler days lately are getting me excited for all of the things I love about Fall! I could probably list a hundred reasons why I love Fall but here are my top ten.

1. Pumpkin candles, pumpkin patches, & anything made out of pumpkin! 

2) Football- I love Sunday’s, the yummy game day food!

3) Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte

4) Cool mornings and crisp evenings

5) Everything Apple! 🙂

6) Halloween & Thanksgiving: two of my favorite holidays

7) Burnt Orange, burgundy and brown every where I turn. 

8) Fall Fashion: I love layering, leggings, wearing boots, and bundling up with scarves & gloves.

9) The leaves changing colors and crunching under your feet.

10) Haunted houses.

More Pinterest Projects…

I gathered a square canvas, orange and brown acrylic paint, glue sticks, tissue paper, and a chevron stencil I printed off the internet that I have attached HereI used the chevron stencil to lightly sketch out the lines onto the canvas.

Getting the lines perfectly centered & evenly spaced was honestly the hardest part…
