Wish list.

930084_009_bLet’s pretend that I was going to buy myself a reward for studying my bum off for this exam next week…

well then, I think I’ve found the object of my affection.

It’s probably way flattering, no?

It’s probably 178$, no?

It reminds me of our wedding. black + white + green. I saw it in anthropologie with Carly and thought it would have made an awesome bridesmaid dress.

with that price-tag, all hard-working aside, It’s going to have to stay on its mannequin.

maybe if I PASS my exam?

well, maybe I’ll add it to my ebay-search-list {for those of you who don’t know, you can snag a lot of great new-with-tags clothes from just holding out a few months after they hit stores.} Let’s hope this little gem finds it way on there soon.

Things I’m looking forward to:

  • Veg Fest 09. (must out-do Veg fest ’08) – to kick off the night that I take boards.
    {Veg fest means Aaron and I ‘veg out’…lounge around on the couch, watching movies, ordering pizza. enjoying some red vino. It means we turn off our phones, we can’t do any chores, pay any bills, run any errands, or do ANYTHING that we do not want to do. It’s the ultimate indulgence.}
  • Cooking in my pretty, new kitchen.
  • seeing more of my friends and my family.
  • Planting flowers in our garden. Mom? Teresa? Help, please. maybe I'm not even supposed to plant this time of year. I don't even know that.
  • Shopping. {sigh}
  • Shopping for le house. Finally getting to do all the fun decorating, browsing, and even blog-stalking all the cute, creative interior design sites. And see the last few boxes sent out to the curb.
  • Planning our weekend away {celebrating birthdays + test completions}… we’ve tossed around going to a B & B winery in Texas? Or Silver Dollar City in Missouri?... what do you think, where should we go?
  • catching up with editing and uploading all my photos.
  • updating this little site for my ridiculous following. {cue laughter} no, really, but I have missed it.
  • Sitting. Just coming home, and relaxing. Sitting on our back patio, grilling out with Aaron, sitting in the hammock and {gasp} reading for fun.
  • Loving on my sweet husband who's been like mr. suzy homemaker this past month. cooking for me, cleaning (even the bathrooms people), shopping for groceries, taking care of every little thing so I could focus on studying. UH-mazing. I've never felt so appreciative, I think acts-of-service would definitely be my "love language".
  • celebrating our emancipation with the other lovely ladies going for the "C" in CGC. Hot tub parties, pedicures and champagne. oh yeah, we know the key to motivation is sweet rewards.
  • Living in ignorant bliss until November-December when we find out our scores.
  • Going down to Dallas to stay with Carly & Adam.
  • celebrating Julie's wedding in Lubbock.
  • Camping. ‘tis the season, right?
  • Baylor Homecoming …which is shaping up to be a possible class of ’05 reunion.
  • Bringing down the ‘fall d├ęcor’. {there’s a bunch!} Oh, how you pumpkins, leaves, oranges-browns-golds make me smile. And, now to have a cozy home as my canvas...?

I'll leave you with a little tease for fall. This shot was taken by my lovely friend Hannah. Always been one of my favorites. taken...where else? back in Tennessee. see you in a measley ol' 19 days. wish me luck.
