New York, New York

Okay, so this is my SUPER delayed post of pictures from our NY trip last month. This is definitely not all the pictures, just some of my favorites :)

I'm a little HG obsessed so I loved all these huge adverts around Times Square :)

Loved Hoboken and Carlo's. Mama was beyond adorable.. and soo sweet! The wait was long, but the food was delish!!

We ate at this pizza place that was a converted old church. It was gorgeous!

It totally poured on us on our harbor cruise. But, we still got to see some beautiful sights. Plus it makes for interesting pictures right??

Yes, this is us, in our Texas jerseys at Yankee Stadium. How brave are we?? We only got heckled a little ;)

The skyline and buildings are just beautiful. You can definitely see the weather in these pics.

I was in love with all the bridges! I think thats what I have the most pictures of. I'm crazy!
I just 'love' this picture.

Three - Birthday Edition

I totally stole this from a friend on Tumblr because I loved the idea. I'm thinking about adopting it for a weekly thing to help me stop and think about things. This particular one is a little different because its my birthday edition, so some of it is pretty general. But still, its me :)

Three things I am thankful for:
1. another fabulous year of life (they just keep getting better and better)
2. my fiancé, Mike
3. my parents and my besties

Three things I’m looking forward to this week:
1. my birthday! 3-1 on Sunday
2. hanging with friends and family (girls night out, quilt show, dallas flea)
3. my favorite beer biscuits and sausage gravy

Three things on mind today:
1. test tomorrow
2. grad school info/options
3. Christmas ideas (its never too early to start planning, right??)

Three things that made me happy this weekend:
1. first softball game of fall ball (far more fun that I thought it was going to be)
2. babysitting two super adorable girls
3. rearranging the bedroom so I can get a desk :)

Three things I am praying for:
1. job after graduation in December
2. church issues/questions/feelings
3. our future in general

High Five for Friday

I'm just linking up all over the place this week! Today I'm linking up with Lauren @ From My Grey Desk (who I just adore!) for this High Five for Friday post.

Here's my five from this week:

     1. I've been waiting and watching and we finally did it. 200,000 miles. I was hoping when we reached this milestone I could retire the old girl, but alas, the real world said "maybe later". So here's to another hundred thousand miles lol.
     2. Pumpkin Spice is back at Starbucks! Yay, my life is complete. Okay so that's an exaggeration, but really, I do love when fall stuff starts making its appearance. Now if only the temperatures would start cooling off!
     3. We went skeet shooting this weekend and Mike snuck this picture of me. I look awful, but I just love shooting so I couldn't leave it out. If you look hard, you can see the clay in the air!
     4. I made Nutella cookies for the first time. They were pretty delish!
     5. So its a guilty pleasure and my mom totally supports my habit. The seasons come out pretty close to my birthday every year so she buys them for me. I spent ALL day Monday watching this entire season. Thats like the epitome of Labor Day laziness!!

Current Crush Thursday

So, this is my first link up or doing a theme-y thing from another blog. But, I just thought the idea was super cute!  Found the idea from Lattes and Love and The Wright Stuff

Current Crush Thursdays

My current crush is PUMPKIN! With the return of Starbucks Pumpkin Spice drinks, how could I not start thinking about all things fall? Fall is my favorite season and pumpkin is by far my favorite part of fall! Pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, trips to the pumpkin patch - I just love it all!
