Thoughts for Thursday!

Thursday, September 24, 2015

Hi!! Happy Thursday!! My girls didn't have school on Monday...so it has been a short week for us...and you won't hear me complaining about that! :)

My thoughts are kind of all over the place this past week...so you get a super random Thoughts for Thursday post from me today! YAY!

Sooo...I know that ankle boots are THE LOOK right now.  And I love them!! I see all of these women wearing them and they look fabulous.  But for me- I just can NOT see myself pulling them off! I have, what you might say are more "muscular" legs...and I can't get myself to put on a pair of leggings and then a short little ankle bootie! I feel much more comfortable in tall boots as I feel like they give the appearance I have nice, long, thin legs :)  If I were going to buy a pair of ankle boots- I think these are really cute!!  Very simple...but the wedge heel definitley adds something special to them!

I have my porch decorated for Fall and it turned out SO cute! I still need to get pumpkins...I am just trying to find the store who is selling them for the cheapest price :)  My Target had some for $1.99/pumpkin- which is crazy cheap!! The kids and I were going to pick some up- but I was smart and called before we went there to see if they had any left- and you guessed it- they were gone!  I think my next best bet is going to be Aldi...YES- Aldi sells pumpkins! And for pretty cheap! And they are huge! 
Anyway....hoping to get our pumpkins this weekend and the porch is officially ready for Fall!

Do you read Kate's blog? I just love her!  She is SUPER down to earth, extremely knowlegdeable about hair and makeup and is hysterical!  She does a lot of video tutorials- and they are so great!  I just really enjoy her and if you aren't already reading her blog (which you probably are- she has a HUGE following)- you should definitely check out 

Speaking of blogs, my ALL TIME FAVORITE blogger shut down her blog this past weekend :(  I know I have mentioned before how much I love Grace, from Camp Patton (I would link to her blog- but it is closed down).  She is a mom of 5 children, 5 and under and her husband just finished up a grueling OB/GYN residency and is now doing a fellowship.  Anyway- she is ridiculously witty and super hysterical and reading her daily blog post was such a fun part of my day.  I follow her on Instagram and she said that she needed to take the blog down for safety concerns.  1) I hate that she feels like her family's safety was being compromised 2) She has a massive following- so I know the decision to shut down her blog was probably so hard! 3) It sounds so silly- considering I have never met her- but I really miss Grace and her writing! Fingers crossed she is able to bring her blog back sometime in the near future!

And just to keep talking about bloggers...another favorite blogger of mine is April, from A.Liz Adventures! I am sure she is one of your favorites too :) Yesterday she posted a recipe for super yummy and EASY French Dip sandwiches...and they look SO good!  This is a meal my husband would LOVE.  My in-laws are coming to visit us over Halloween weekend and I am thinking these sandwiches would be the perfect thing to make before the kids head out to go trick-or-treating! 

I am having a hard time believing October is here NEXT week! What happened to September?? I just feel like once school starts....the last 4 months of the year ALWAYS fly by! There is so much going on- and it is all SO fun...but you really have to make a concerted effort to stay right in the moment or it will just flash by you!

Here's to being present and THAKFUL for ALL of it...

Hope you have a WONDERFUL day!!

 I am linking up with Annie and Natalie today!

  1. I as well cannot believe that we have a week left of September. You are right, as soon as school starts it flys by! You need to photograph your front porch to show us ;) My plan today is to do our front porch, but it might be on hold because Emma is home sick from school today. We'll see how it goes. Have a great Thursday, Justine!

  4. I totally think you should try the ankle boots! I also have muscular legs and in general don't wear leggings often, but I love the boots with skinny jeans!!
