What 3 Things I'm Obsessed With Now: Shoes, Soup, and a GIVEAWAY!

This list is completely RANDOM.
Like hard core random.
It is all over the place, but stick with me...
Remember, there is a giveaway at the end!

 1) I'm obsessed with 2 different types of footwear right now. 
Both types are quite uncharacteristic of me to be obsessed with.
Am I often obsessed with boots?  Of course.
Can I be obsessed with a great pair of flats?  Yes, ma'm.
But right now I'm obsessed with a pair of running shoes and a pair of rain boots.
Weird, I know.

First up, the running shoes.
I don't run. 
I don't jog. 
I barely even walk.
But it doesn't mean I don't want THESE shoes.

Aren't they so bright and fun?
They kinda make me want to exercise AND they are on sale right now (with free shipping)!
Yes, THIS shoe, and the thought that I'm going to be at the pool in like 3 1/2 months kinda makes me want to put down the chips and queso and get moving.
Give me another couple of weeks and I think I actually might.

Second up, THIS DARLING pair of rain boots!

I own some rain boots that I got from Target a  couple of years ago.
I got them specifically to wear at the ranch, but I ended up wearing them LOTS more than that
Rain boots really do come in handy.
They were around $35 (which was awesome!), but the rubber is now ripping at the top.
So, mama needs a new pair of rain boots.
Now that I know I wear them more than just at the ranch, I'm willing to pay a little more for them.
I don't want to shell out $150 for Hunter's, (although I'm quite sure they are worth it), so I was sooo happy to find some great opions.
Love the polka dot ones above...but I also love THESE in yellow, teal, red, and black.

One of my favorite things to do every morning is to check my friend Shay's food blog!
It's not a new obsession, it's been a part of my morning routine for quite a while now.
Shay started an awesome blog about a year and a half ago where she features tons of yummy recipes, with the tag line that "it's more about the method than the recipe".
She makes quick, easy, and nutritious dinners almost every night of the week, and
she does it with ease using a fail- proof method, and then mixing and matching it countless ways!
She gets fast and healthy dinners on the table for her sweet family,
and she will help YOU get dinner on the table too.
This is Shay:
(purely fyi: If I wrote a food blog, I'm pretty sure I would weigh at least 750 pounds.)
Her food blog is called Mix and Match Mama!
One of my favorite recipes from Shay is her Sausage and Tortellini soup.
Hearty, Healthy, and Easy.
Oh...and let's not forget YUMMY!

And for those of you visiting from Kelly's Korner that have never been to my blog before......
(Speaking of yummy...Sean Lowe is Shay's little brother!)

I am totally and completely 100% prime time obsessed with this necklace.
I got it on Saturday, and I've worn it 3 times since then.  
Can you blame me?
 Look how it changed my look from plain to fabulous in Look #1 (headed to meet a friend for lunch):
Look #2 (church):
Look #3 (work):

And lucky you guys....this necklace is the giveaway!!!!
Accessory Mix Auctions (found on facebook) is partnering up with me to give one to
 a super lucky reader!

Pin It!


  1. I don't know what to comment on first??? Let's did workout hard core for one week last year. You should really give yourself credit for that (you did spinning after all!). Second, everyone should have rain boots (especially those cute ones!). They are one of the best investments you can make! Third, if I had a fashion blog, I'd be in debt by $450,000, so it's a good thing we were both called to our own specific talents. And fourth, people should really go back and read your Bachelor recaps. They are your best work ever!! Happy Friday!

  2. I liked accessory mix auctions on FB and I LOVE that necklace!!

  3. I love that necklace! Such a fun piece to have to dress up outfits. I am also in love with both of those shoes! I have a bit of a shoe problem but I can always use a new pair of sneakers ;)
