Things That Thrill Me

Cheers to Thursday, all!

How’s everybody’s week going so far? Things are still pretty hectic and cluttered around the new house, so I’m enjoying the few moments of quiet that I can get to myself.

If you’re in-need of a pick-me-up, be sure to check out my thrills from the week!

17 Reasons Why a Dog Makes Your Life More Awesome. Any dog owner will agree with this list – it’s spot-on!

Kate Spade Sparkle Studs. Aren’t these just perfect for the holiday season? Although, I would absolutely wear these year round. You can’t go wrong with classic studs with a bit of glitter.

VS All Access: Train Like an Angel. If these workouts can help me get in shape and get a bod like a Victoria’s Secret angel, sign me up.

Festive Wintry & New Year’s Eve Wedding Favor Ideas. All these wedding favor ideas make me second-guess why Ryan and I didn’t have a winter wedding.

Bathroom Inspiration. Sherwin-Williams’ “Mink” paint color is what we have chosen for the bathrooms in our home, so I’m loving all the inspiration photos to help guide us as to what to do with decor, refinishing the vanities, and so on.

Bronde Hair. I’ve been loving my transition to ombre hair, and I think I want to take it a step further when it comes time for my next hair appointment. This provides a great list of inspiration.

Hot Chocolate Krispies. Need I say more? I love all the variations of Rice Krispie treats, and this one is no exception. This dessert would be perfect for a lazy, snowed-in day.

Online Wedding Dress Shopping: Tips to Consider Before Selecting “Order”: Seeing as we shop for everything else online these days, it’s no surprise that a lot of brides opt to buy their wedding gown or bridesmaid dress through the Web now, too. My second feature on the Wedding Party this week highlights things to consider and be wary of before you make the big purchase.

  9. I'm with you on wedding dress shopping, but my cousin just bought her dress online and she loves it! The in-store experience isn't for everybody.

  10. I love those floors, too! Something about the gray undertones just ties that whole room together.

  13. I agree with you about shopping online for a wedding dress! However, I suppose doing the whole in-store experience just isn't for everyone! I'm so jealous that those earrings are en route to you!

  14. Haha, you're probably right – they definitely work out longer for 20 minutes a day! I think all us girls need those Kate Spade earrings, just saying.

  19. Love those earrings, especially the gold pair! I also love the pain color that you chose, very pretty. I enjoyed the experience of trying on wedding dresses so I'm against buying one online. No offense to my twin sister who bought hers online!! Some of those VS models looked fab at the Fashion Show, so I'll take workout tips from them. Chris loves rice krispie treats, so I'll have to show those to him. I hope that you are enjoying your day so far!!! 🙂

  22. I love those Kate Spade earrings. I wish I could wear earrings. I absolutely Love the color you chose for your bathrooms too! Very sophisticated. 🙂

  23. I mean I am 100% an online shopper but something about ordering your dress online…..it just doesn't seem right! Those earrings are so pretty and may already quite possible be "under my tree" and when I say under the tree…..I mean I have no tree and they are en route by Nordstrom lol. Love that paint color you picked!

    I love those KS sparkle earrings! I definitely need them in my life. And for some reason I feel like the VS models workout longer than 20 mins a day… can't they just send me their training for a month? LOVE the glittery champagne bottles. Yes please!

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland

Do you ever experience quiet moments of total content while on vacation, no matter where you are?
  • Catalina Island is nothing short of enchanting. ☀️ #catalinacasino #vacationmode #frommyview
  • California vacation part one: ☑️. Thanks for the magic, memories and OG nostalgia Disneyland! #adultsatdisney #toontown #wallsofdisney
  • I can’t stop obsessing over this book! It’s Behind-the-Music meets Almost Famous, and I had to constantly remind myself that I wasn’t reading an interview in Rolling Stone Magazine. I just love when a book comes around that makes me fall further in love with reading than I already am. Have you read it? What are you #currentlyreading? #bookworm #bookstagram
