love lists: happy & sad.

i was in the mood, this morning, for some good old-fashioned list-making.

read on for a collection of things making me both happy & sad on this lovely wednesday.

reasons i'm happy today:

1. burberry brit.
my signature scent

2. boots.
wearing my favorites today (not the ones pictured above - those are justin's)
3. urban decay's naked palette.
one of the best beauty investments i've made

4. photographing things of justin's that i will miss when he moves this week.
i love these boots (see photo above)

5. the delicious scentsy scent a coworker brought to the office.
it smells like christmas in here, & it's now wafting out into the hallway

6. lunch break spent at home.
i'll get to see the puppies, do pilates, & eat something yummy

reasons i'm sad today:

1. justin leaves for north carolina this week.
i'm going to miss him

2. i still don't have my ring.
we took it to get sized on saturday - i had only had it a week - i miss it

3. i didn't dress warmly enough for the frigid wind that's happening.
didn't know i'd need the pea coat this morning


well, at least there are double the amount of happy things as sad things.

that, in itself, is certainly something to celebrate!

i want to see your boots. i still have not found any that seem to look "perfect" after boot shopping for 3 years. maybe i'm picky?! get in as much justin time before he goes!

I'm sure you are going to miss Justin. I can't imagine what that would be like. Hopefully you get your ring back soon!

Ohhh how I want the UD Naked Palette! Def some loveliness!

Have a great day friend! Stay warm!

I'm so sorry your man is moving away! :( I'm hoping you get your ring soon-- I got so agitated when the jeweler had my ring, I was so crabby! But on a lighter note, I want to say thankyou: you've convinced me to make this Urban Decay palette, so thanks for the "push"! I hope things get better, and I hope you have a great rest of the week!

It's always the little things that brighten up our day!

Jennifer said...

I wanna see your boots too! I'm sorry Justin is moving. I hope the time you're apart goes fast!

P.S. After reading your engagement story I tried to convince my husband to re-propose (our story sucks). He's not going for it.

look at all these comments! That is something to add to the 'reasons I'm happy today' list! Loving your blog little lady. Your ring will come back soon, and it will be super shiny and perfectly fitted for that finger! Looking forward to lunch on Friday :)
