If you are the praying type, please keep my family and C's family in your prayers. Please keep my friends struggling with life change in your prayers. Please keep my bff and her unborn baby (he is almost here!) in your prayers. Please keep the Nielson clan in your prayers. Please keep our nation who is facing a time of great change in your prayers. Please keep me and my mine in your prayers. I promise to keep you and yours in mine.
P.S. Whether you are the praying type or not, if you are interested in learning more about the place that encourages me to continue turning my face Heavenward, I invite you to visit Watermark.org.

Happy Friday! I love Fridays the most for the following reasons:
1.) It is almost the weekend!
2.) I get to wear jeans to the office (this doesn't sound like a big deal, but believe me, it is).
3.) I usually get to duck out a little early.
4.) We almost always take a long lunch.
5.) I always get my favorite treat- an icy beverage from Starbucks.
6.) I get to look forward to date night/seeing family/hanging with my amazing friends/quality time with the bf/travelling/vegging out.
7.) My puppy gets really excited when I come home and stay there for 2 straight days.
8.) I get to sleep in, not this weekend, but most weekends.
9.) Weekends almost always involve family time.
10.) Weekends almost always involve shopping.
Ah, bliss. Have a fab Friday folks.
Thank goodness they didn't keep us waiting all season to see the proposal! I personally would not have thought getting down on one knee at a truckstop was the most romantic, but somehow it worked for the two of them. Plus it was pouring rain. How lovely.
Also, I loved loved the weight loss storyline. Kelly's "tapeworm" from Creed killed me. Oh the other hand, I wasn't thrilled with how they revived Ryan's character as a temp again. Meh. And, what was up with Meredith's face? Did I miss something? As usual, Dwight was awesome-he looked super hilarious with a goatee.
I don't know how you could not be into this show. What was your favorite part?

Nie Nie's story is so touching and I am really impressed by the amount of love and compassion people are pouring out for Stephanie and Christian. I visited the etsy sight for the two day Nie Nie Benefit Sale on its first day yesterday, and of the 161 items Morgan at One More Moore posted, there were only 8 left 30 minutes into the sale at 12:30, CST. That is truly incredible!
Rumor has it that more items will be posted here today at 12 CST, and I know I will be there to support the Nielson's cause. The Nielson's and their children are certainly in my prayers.
If you want more information about Nie Nie and Christian's progress, visit C Jane.
Update: It is 12:15pm, CST and there are only 3 items left. This outpouring of desire to help is amazing! Also, Morgan has extended the Benefit Sale and will be posting more items on both Thursday and Friday at 12pm, CST.
I mean, come on! I love the nude. It would be so so perfect with all things fall. Perfect with dresses. Perfect with skirts and tights. Perfect with jeans.
They are fabulous in black too. Love, love the Jefferey Campbell Ruffle Platform Heel. $135, online only, at UO.

I have been having a serious case of wanderlust lately. Some friends of ours just jetted off to tour around Europe for awhile and how I wish I could have tagged along. My favorite kind of trip in the fall is a good oldfashioned road trip (with the bf driving of course!) I love the fresh air and the pretty colors you inevitably see along the way. (For the record, if you have never done a roadtrip in Arkansas in the fall, I highly recommend it. The changing of the leaves are just to die for.) So with that in mind, I present my fantasy Monday treasure:
A vintage 1957 VW Cabriolet. Can't you just picture a scenic drive with the wind whipping in your hair? Ahhhh. I don't know how much this beauty would cost, but I think cherry red roadtrip perfection=priceless.
Here's to the start of another work week!

Maybe I will try again a little later. Ciao!
Molto bene! How beautiful! I have been devouring the Fashion Week posts on other blogs and I was super duper impressed with the YSL collection. And, as usual, the shoes were just to-die. I know the Tribute is a classic, but it is just so dang good and it is my fantasy. And fantasy it will stay because unfortunately $660 worth of perfect patent leather is just not in the cards for me. Sigh.

Tres, tres cute! I can see wearing it to work now with strappy sandals and then transitioning it into fall with thick black tights and a cardigan. And did I mention it is only $29.50? Love it!

#2. A stay at the Agriturismo Il Vecchil Maneggio Bed and Breakfast, an ancient farmhouse in the rural hills of San Gimignano, Italy. The website says that it is nestled among vineyards, olive groves and orchards. How dreamy. Now wasn't that fun?!

(picture to come, as soon as I take it)
Wilco handlebar stache poster from pfahlert. One of the greatest bands of all time and one of the most epic staches of all time.
Handprinted botanical using three colors from nateduval. Just so, so pretty.
And these three from SparklePower. I ended up la la loving the last one the most, so it's on it's way to me now! Hooray! I love you etsy.
