photo taken friday night at fat tony's - home of the prettiest indoor twinkle lights i've ever seen
I feel like I ran a marathon yesterday. What did I actually do? Well, I shopped. For five hours straight, without a break, in Smithfield. It is tax-free weekend here in North Carolina, & since my birthday present from Justin this year is a shopping spree, we decided this weekend was the one. We picked items up from J.Crew, Polo, Ann Taylor, Ann Taylor Loft, Banana Republic, & Tommy Hilfiger. Since I am planning to - finally - begin posting about my Wardrobe Reconstruction this week, I'll probably share some of the pieces I chose. Great deals abounded, so Justin walked away with some wardrobe additions as well. It was a great - but very tiring - day.

R E A D I N G Rise and Shine, by Anna Quindlen, & planning to finish it this week.
W R I T I N G in my DIY composition notebook planner. I've created a system, & I'm pretty excited about it. I love life-documentation. In 2014, I'm thinking of starting a Gratitude Journal, utilizing a ready-made planner, thanks to Jen.
L I S T E N I N G to Shark Week play in the background as I type this post. I remember Shark Week '93, & ever since then, Shark Week has kind of been a thing for me. We also had it playing all week last year when I was working in my Dad's office. Good memories.
T H I N K I N G that I love diet cheat day. I can't wait for brunch! We're also going grocery shopping today to stock up on healthy foods & snacks. Changing your eating habits to healthy ones really is rewarding.
S M E L L I N G the vanilla hand lotion I applied last night before bed. It's super rich & smells amazing.
W I S H I N G I would have woken up a little bit earlier this morning. But, I was so tired last night!
H O P I N G Justin will enjoy watching Shark Week with me.
W E A R I N G some new clothes this week. I'm excited to style all of my new pieces. And share them here on my blog!
L O V I N G life.
W A N T I N G Justin to wake up. I'm hungry.
N E E D I N G to embark on some organization projects this week.
F E E L I N G excited - my MIL is coming to visit in a couple weeks! I love visitors.
C L I C K I N G nothing today! I plan to enjoy my day with Justin. BUT, if we have some down-time later, I may click over to read some of y'all's TSCs.
As I type this, Justin has emerged & is now enjoying Shark Week with me. I'm sure we will soon head out for a delicious brunch. Happy Sunday!
