As always TGIF...AND...what a week!

Yesterday I was at school almost 14 hours!  Immediately after dismissal we had interviews for 3 hours (one of our teachers has decided to resign so we're in the process of finding a new K teacher) and then that was followed by back to school night.  I am wiped out...probably will be asleep by 8:00 pm tonight!

That being said, I am really hoping you have had a better week than me!

On a happy note, here are some things I have been loving lately...

C. Wonder is a frequent flyer in these "Loving..." posts...pretty much everything they sell is just fabulous and I have to admit, I'm a little more than a bit obsessed with this piggy bank!

In this past post I mentioned Tory Burch boots.  Well friends, I tried them on recently and while they're gorgeous, I really prefer more of a tan color than dark brown.  Since Katie, of In the Pink posted these on Instagram, I have been smitten!  These are the replacement boots I have been searching for!  AND...on top of that, they are half the price of the TB pair, meaning I can buy them AND something else new for Fall without feeling guilty!

The fact that it's boot weather, also means it's sock weather!  Y'all...if you haven't bought a pair of J. Crew socks, you should!  They are the best...so comfy! These are just plain precious!

Bryce's mom brought a sample of this back from a recent trip to NY and it smells heavenly!  Bryce even exclaimed "What is that wonderful smell?" after coming upstairs when I first put it on!  It's available for pre-sale now and you are going to want to snag it up!

I love this buttondown!  The mix of classic blouse with fun cuffs and collar is right on the mark!

And finally, I'm going to diverge from my usual e-Card closer.  I'm going to be honest with you...it's been a really rough start to this school year.  I may go into it more in a personal post soon, but, things have been crazy, frustrating, and overwhelming to say the least.  I'm trying to stay positive and am really loving this quote as a reminder of why I teach.

What are you currently loving?

Have a great weekend!


  1. I really want to get some fun socks for the winter like those you have in your post! One thing I have been loving this week is my morning tea in my Lilly mug! It has really been a blessing :)


  2. Ohhh can't wait to try that perfume! Hope you have a happy weekend! :)

  3. Let me know if you get the boots! Mine came Wednesday and I love them - they are so comfortable and very well-made. Now it just needs to not be 80 degrees out so I can wear them!

  4. That perfume sounds delightful, I can't wait to go sniff test it!! Also, the boots are fab, I'm sure that you'll love them!

  5. I love that quote! I hope that you get lots of rest this weekend and that your Friday isn't too crazy.

    I seriously want to go check out that perfume now! Thanks for sharing your picks!

  6. I've been lusting after that piggie bank for weeks now!! I think it's the perfect place to store my extra change and eventually treat myself to something special!! Love it

  7. I love those boots! I hope next week is better sweets!

  8. Love those boots! I agree on this week being hectic and so sorry to hear things are frustrating. Cheers to the weekend and hopefully having a better week next week!

  9. I love the boots, Allie. I"m sorry that it's been a hard year so far. I want you and Bryce to come visit us. :)
