What I'm Loving Wednesday

Oh it's Wednesday again - time to share what I'm loving today!

So this Merona Ultimate Tee from Target is probably one of my favorite fall finds - I have two in white, and one in this gray stripe, and also in orange and teal - for $8 each!! I seriously love these shirts - I hate getting "dressed up" to clean and do housework all day, but I can't stand wearing old ratty t-shirts either.  These are great!
I am seriously obsessed with peppermint mocha creamer right now.  I was all about pumpkin pie creamer through October - but I've officially made the switch.  My coffee tastes SO good every morning now.  It's almost as good as one from Starbucks - except this is better because the creamer costs much less than a cup of coffee there!

I check on daily deal sites almost every day (and only buy if I can get a great deal) - and I found these hair clips yesterday on Very Jane for $2.50!  I got Reese the penguin and the gingerbread girl for $7 with shipping.  These will look super cute with her Christmas shirts this year!
Augh!  These two!  I know that they will be beyond excited to find out that we're going back to Disney World, and I can't wait to tell them - but we're keeping it a secret for now!  I got really excited when I saw Wyatt's progress report at his parent teacher conference yesterday and saw that he said that he likes it when we take him to Disney World!  I was less excited when I saw that Reese told her teacher that it makes her happy when I give her food.  Seriously?!?  Kids say the silliest things!
Y'all - I'm not even going to lie.  My skin is awful.  Like, I would show you pictures of how bad it is sometimes, but I would be so embarrassed (although it was its worst when I was a junior in high school).  I tried every medication in high school, and I wash my face morning and night, but nothing has ever worked.  I find myself wanting to smack people who complain about getting a pimple once a month. I'm also terribly afraid that my kids could end up with my skin. I'm not kidding - I would be so much happier to be dealing with wrinkles than dealing with acne at 29.  Proactiv is the only thing that works for my skin - if I follow all three steps, twice a day.  I stopped using it for awhile, but I couldn't take it anymore - sometimes I need to do what's right for me, too! 
My Erin Condren address book came this week (mine is mocha/multi though), and I am so excited!  I have about a gazillion Excel files with all the addresses I need in it - but it is such a pain.  I am so happy to have all my contacts in one place!
This candle is on its last leg - but I am still in love!  Fortunately we'll be making the switch to a Christmas scent in the near future so I won't be scentless - but I LOVE this one!

So that's kind of a long list - but that's what I'm loving today y'all!


  1. Love it all! Target is so great isn't it?!? I seriously need to start brewing my own coffee... I spend WAY too much buying it. And yay for Disney!! My parents brought us like once a year, and I honestly can't wait for the first time we bring Gwen!!!

  2. I'll have to try that coffee creamer. Peppermint Mochas from starbucks are my guilty pleasure. Yay for going to Disney again! I cant wait to take my girls. We love all things Disney in this house. Oh & Yankee candles.. mmm! Love them! Great list. :)

  3. That shirt looks amazing. I love plain, soft t-shirts that you can dress up with scarfs or necklaces. I just ordered an EC life planner and I can't wait for it to get here. Now that I've read how much you love the address book I may have to add it to my wish list.

  4. I wrote about my Erin Condren planner today too! I love the silly thing. It's great. I really need to get some new candles too. I only have one left that still has a ways in it, but I need some more around the house pronto.

  5. thats so funny what reese said! when i was young i told the teacher my mom fed me popsicles for dinner (which she didnt!)kids say the darndest things!

  6. I have ULTRA sensitive skin, so I feel your pain. I will break out if hairspray touches my forehead. Seriously. I've learned to really monitor what irritates my skin, and so far it's 1) any kind of scent or fragrance, even if it's in a soap or lotion made for the face, 2) scrubbing too hard or not hard enough (too hard irritates it, and not enough doesn't exfoliate--finding the right balance has been tough), 3) not using a fresh, clean washcloth every day-- I've learned I can't go more than a day without getting a clean cloth and it needs to be washed in scent-free laundry soap, and 4) sunscreens. Yep, the thing that's supposed to prevent wrinkles and skin cancer actually gives me pimples. How vicious is that?! I've found a Cover Girl foundation that has a SPF 15 sunscreen that my skin can tolerate, so I make sure I use it whenever I'm going outside. I will sometimes use hydrogen peroxide as a toner if I'm feeling a breakout coming, but I take care to avoid my eyebrows--don't want them getting bleached blonde!
    I'll be 40 years old next summer. Grey hairs AND pimples are soooo weird looking together.
    I hope you can find a routine that works well for you.
