Conversation #163: Summer Fun song of the Week

So I did this little series the last couple of summers, and I decided it was about time for me to bring it back.  I have a little confession, I listen to sports talk radio most days at work - do you all still love me?!  I live in TX so sports are pretty major here, but I also grew up in a family (even though we were all girls) where sports were watched (not really participated in so much).  My mom and my dad are both big sports fans, and although the hubby wasn't so much when we started dating (I was probably more into sports than him), he became a major sports fan in college and sucked me in deep too!  It is fun to get to enjoy it together and especially when we get to cheer on our alma mater together.  Anyway, all of that to say I haven't listened to as much music lately, which is sad because I LOVE music.  So I decided to share my music likes with you - sorry if you don't like them (well, only a little, this is my blog after all)!

So most of you have probably heard of the group Karmin, but I just love them and they make me happy and that is what my Summer Fun song of the Week is all about; listening to tunes that make you want to roll down the window (unless it is blazing hot, like it is everywhere right now) and sing at the top of your lungs with the sun shining down.  There are so many songs that bring back happy summer memories for me so summer music has become something I look forward to each year.  It is usually lighter, poppier, and very catchy!

Okay, back to Karmin.  Love them.  The end.  Here are a couple of songs for you to enjoy (beware, they are a time suck for me on YouTube!)



*No frugal fashion today - I didn't do such a good job at outfit pics this week!

Conversation #114: Wardrobe Checklist (and retail detox update)

I read something a while back that sort of spurred me into thinking I needed to do this whole retail detox thing.  I'm just going to get it out there - it has been way hard for me and I'm super embarrassed and disappointed by that.  I did well for the first two weeks, and then I got into this buying and returning things habit because I felt bad after buying it.  I told myself that I could still buy things, but only with extra money I earned from ebay.  That worked for a while too, but then I caved to the Lands' End Canvas sale last weekend.  I bought three tees, a skirt, and a cardigan.  I think that all but maybe one tee will be going back and hopefully I can stop this extra shopping. 

Okay, back to the "thing" I read...

It was an article in Real Simple magazine targeted at helping you never buy the wrong thing again.  It has great tips in it, and the wardrobe checklist it includes really brought it all back home to me.  I started going through the checklist an…

The Post Office Blonde Moment

(Photo from: http://www.nauvoonews.com/nauvoo_photos.htm)

So I found a new satchel purse that I'm very excited about.  I got a better deal on this one than the other, and it is from one of my favorite purse companies, The Sak.  Here is a picture of it:
I decided that I needed to return a purse I bought from them a couple of weeks ago though to feel good about this purchase.  I bought it thinking I would love it, but I just couldn't make the shape fit for me.  I let it sit for a week or so, but it wasn't happening.  I was just going to keep it because the thought of returning it sounded like a hassle until this bag was revealed on their website, and it was waaaaay marked down for a week!  I decided I would just send the other one back, and so began the post office debacle.

I lost a little faith in the USPS this week - at least the local one near me.  I went on Monday night to pick up a priority mail box, and they were all out.  Plus, there were like 20+ people in line.  I de…

Conversation #203: So I married my mom

I don't know if people say this to men, but I heard a lot while growing up that girls tend to marry someone like their dad (I guess good, bad, or ugly).  I don't know how true that really is, but relatively early on in our marriage, my husband and I realized I married my mom.

This doesn't mean my husband is feminine or my mother masculine, but to say that they seem to be the same person.  I am definitely more like my dad personality wise so it probably make sense that I married someone more like my mom.  Now I will say my mom, being an actual woman, generally makes her a bit more empathetic and understanding to the eccentricities of being a woman.  I don't think any man, my husband or otherwise, will ever be able to understand the intricacies of being a woman. However, I also feel like he can talk to my mom, and being that they have both lived with me and seem to speak the same language,  can benefit from her wisdom and knowledge of co-habitating with me and enlighten …
