 My new favorite piece of furniture...on my list of "to buys"

 The city and vacation I am missing:

The favorite sweater that belongs to my sister.  (I borrow all of her clothes when I go visit and its like having a roomate again! :)

The kitchen I am drooling over:

The boots I still adore but will never buy:

Now please cheer me up with your favorite things!  I am feeling a little down this week.

On My Wish-list...

...REALLY tall boots...check

...a black scarf...check

...a comfy gray sweater...

...and the perfect white collared shirt.

I used $70 from my first paycheck to buy myself a couple pairs of shoes that I have been needing wanting:

I have wanted these Jack Purcells since they were popular in Jr. High.  I am pretty sure these are going to be my perfect mom shoes:

I also got these in brown:

What's on your fashion wish-list?

Finally Favorite Things Friday And Sodastream Winner!

I am back!  For all of the pictures I took and photo shoots I did while on my trip, go check out my photo blog.

Wow what a month September has been so far.  Let's just say that I am more tired than I have ever been...physically, mentally, emotionally.  Things are good though.  I have gotten into the swing of things here in the office and all of the crises have died down since the first 2 weeks I started.  (For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about I started as the new office manager at our apartment complex, which included moving to the manager's apartment, floods, fires, yellow jackets, power outages, no water, and lots of maintenance calls all in the first week.)

I am excited to finally be back to blogging and Favorite Things Friday again!  For a few days there I thought I wasn't going to be able to and it made me really sad.

Thanks to all of you who continued posting to my ongoing Favorite Things Friday!  I wanted to share some of my favorites from the past few weeks:

This gorgeous cabinet makeover from The Painted Hive

This Sweater Redo from Thinking About Pretty

 These pretty Crocheted Washcloths from Just Make It

This Linen and Lace Dress from Sewn

A beautiful Bedroom Makeover from Dirt Cheap Decor

How to make Apple Jelly from Charm of the Carolines

This First Day Survival Kit from Singing With Birds Top Five Friday

These super cute Counting Sheep Bean Bags from Fowl Single File

These delicious-looking Raspberry Muffins from Inspired 2 Cook

 And finally for the Sodastream Giveaway winner:

Nancy said... 60 What an array of flavors and they are meant to be better than regular soda (amount of sugar, etc), sounds good to me. I'd have a hard time choosing 3 flavors as they all sound so yummy. Apart from cherry-cola, orange-mango sounds pretty good to me:)

Congrats Nancy! Please contact me within 48 hours so I can get you your prize!

I am so excited to see what all of you are posting this weekend!  I have missed FTF and all of your posts!
