Sweater Season...



There's just something about a good sweater that makes me happy, which is a good thing, since I've essentially been living in them over the past two weeks. The weather has taken a nose dive into the 40's here in Upstate NY & a sweater with a vest is my go-to fall look. Depending on just how cold it is, I may wear booties & a scarf too. If you haven't heard yet, LOFT has some absolutely adorable & affordable sweaters this season. 3 out of the 4 in this post are from there! {not being paid to say that, just wanted to share the love!}

All By Myself...

It is a very good thing that Eric doesn't travel for work... because apparently he doesn't do well with communicating while out of state. On average, it has taken me at least 3 attempts to contact him before he finally responds. I get it, he's in Cali & it's amazing. He doesn't really care that I just finished all of the laundry & got my hair done. But it's driving me crazy having him on the opposite coast & can't wait for him to fly home tonight!

one of the many pics Eric has sent me from his trip to San Diego...



What made it worse though, was that this peanut was away all weekend too...


our little cheerleader!

Ella spent the weekend with Eric's mom so that I didn't have to take her out in the cold to games all weekend. They went to a Pumpkin Party on Saturday morning & his mom put this costume on her! I totally would've sent her costume with her if I'd known, but this was a really nice surprise to pop up on my phone!

This is the absolute longest I've ever gone without Ella. It's also the longest Eric & I have gone without each other since we've been married. People - it was rough. Don't get me wrong, I got a ton done, but OMG I missed them.

So here it is Monday morning & all the laundry is done. The floors are vacuumed & the dishes are put away. I no longer have gray hair & my layers have returned. I have freshly painted nails & my eyebrows are plucked to perfection. My DVR is cleared out & I watched three movies I've been dying to see. I'm out of things to do... time for everyone to come home!!

Five On Friday - A Weekend of Possibilities

1 - I slept horribly last night! This happens every time that Eric is out of town. The dog stays up all night and that wakes up Ella. It's truly the part I dread most about any trip he takes & is the reason that we normally pack up for my parents too. But, that can't happen this time... Instead, Ella is headed to visit her other Grammy & Gramps for the whole weekend. (Which I'm really, really nervous about because she's been a total crank lately.) I really have no idea what I'm going to do with myself. The sweet smell of freedom is intoxicating. (Prediction: I'll be hear on Monday telling you that I took a nap & did laundry. #wildchild

2 - One thing on my to do list this weekend is to go get my first ever gel manicure. I'm horrible with normal nail polish, but my sister insists that this will stay put for me. I trust her, so I'm going to give it a shot. These are the two colors I've kind of narrowed it down to... the blue for Sectionals or just a deep red because it's fall. Opinions appreciated!

3 - I've been really obsessed with Poshmark lately. I had tried it before, but only recently did I make an actual purchase - my amazing leopard flats. Now, I'm selling off a bunch of stuff in hopes of accumulating enough money in my account to purchase a Tory Burch bag. It's going to take a lot of restraint to save up that much... but I know I can stay strong. I hope to use some of my free time to add a bunch of stuff this weekend too, so be sure to check it out! 

4 - Eric & I have completely different tastes in movies, & he pretty much runs the TV, so I'm planning to rent at least one this weekend. I'm thinking either The Neighbors - because duh, Zac Efron - or The Fault in Our Stars - which I know will make me weep, but I want to see it anyways. Opinions? (As you can see, I'm really bad at making decisions for myself right now.) 

5 - Last on the weekend to do list... Pinterest Projects! Have you ever tried to do a Pinterest project with a 2 year old in the house? Don't. It's a really, really bad idea. My original thought was to finally paint a wall in the house, just to freak Eric out & make him never leave me again. Kidding. All our walls are gray though, so I do want to get around to it. I'm a horrible painter though. It just screams disaster. So instead, I'll probably stick to some basic Halloween fall projects that include nothing but Pumpkin Pie Spice & cardstock. #basicbitch

Let the weekend of Bri commence...
