today, while browsing the aisles at Bed, Bath, and Beyond (B3), i found the display of these wonderful k-cups. NEW FLAVORS!!! i hit the jackpot! there is something about the season changing and just really craving pumpkiny, spiced, flavors. and of course hot chocolate. nothing like a hot cup of liquidy goodness to warm your goozle (family word meaning soul, belly, or the like). so, today i found pumpkin spice, DARK hot chocolate, and chai latte k-cups!
as soon as i got home i made me a nice hot cup of the chai latte. heaven. i might have to go back to B3 and stock up. actually, i think i'm gonna go make some hot chocolate...
aren't my coffee cups cute!? there are 6 different colors. they make me happy.

I also got to see my besties, which made me happy. We hung out until 3am Friday night. I could have stayed up all night! I hate that I don't get to see them all the time, but it makes what little time we do get to see each other that much sweeter. Here are some pics from the weekend.
Me and the beautiful bride!

Lots of others had the same idea as us today, it was pretty packed. Lots of people taking professional pictures and such. It kinda distorted its beauty, but all in all, we had a wonderful time together. Next time, I want to go on a weekday and bring a picnic lunch, and just sit and enjoy my surroundings. I'll keep that on my list of things to do when I'm not super busy...
Well, here are some pics we took today of our fun, fall outing.
Happy Fall, Yall!

Anthropologie is another one of my favorite stores for several reasons. If you are wanting something different, maybe a little eclectic, this is your store. You know when you purchase something there, not everyone in North Texas will be wearing it. They have the cutest things for your home. You can get the best gifts there. One of the biggest reasons I love Anthropologie is there window displays and visual merchandising. It would be so fun to work there! Anyways, there things are a little pricey, so you definiately can't go in come out with a new fall wardrobe. But I could spend hours in there just looking at it all.
Funny story and side note. When Bill asked me what I wanted for Christmas I told him several things, one of which was a gift card to Anthro. Well, Bill being Bill, and just a man in general, didn't know where to find the Anthro store. I even gave him specific instructions, because he isn't very sneeky when it comes to buying gifts. Well, I never got the GC and he just gave me cash to go buy whatever I wanted there. Ha! Boys...
Alright, so I've been waiting for us to get settled in a home before I went and purchased one of these. My mom has one, that my step sister got for her, and I love them. Its a personalized return address stamp. I like the ones that are round and have either one initial or monogram in the middle with the address circling around the outside. Lots of websites have them and I've seen them at stationary or invitation stores.
k. thats it for now.

As long as I have loved Pottery Barn, I have loved these dishes. Who doesn't love reindeer. And who doesn't need Christmas plates? No one! Its not something I need all at once, its more of something I could collect over the years. That is, unless, someone wants to be very generous and buy it all at one time for me... No really, they are so adorable, and a fun way to celebrate my favorite holiday. Available at http://www.potterybarn.com/.
As I was browsing through my Pottery Barn catalog that I got today I saw these lovely little things. I do love the reindeer dishes, but how beautiful are these? Each plate represents the 12 days of Christmas. The catalog describes them as a first course or dessert plate. Very lovely. Also available at http://www.potterybarn.com/.
A magazine ad for these shoes caught my eye several months ago. They are called Reebok Easy Tone. They have these special ball like pads on the bottom of them so that when you walk it works your leg and butt muscles. Uh, hello? Who wouldn't want that? As someone who doesn't enjoy working out and really has no desire to do so, is this not the perfect thing? I tried them on at Dick's Sporting Goods about a month ago, and they are actually pretty darn comfortable. But, the sales guy warned me that it will, in fact, burn my buns. I'm all for trying them out! You can read more about them on Reebok's website. They're available at pretty much any sporting goods store.
