ootw: obsession of the week

black is back in a big way,
and i refuse to let go of my love for leggings.
combine the two and we have this week's purchase obsession.

the black mossimo leggings from target {in the juniors dept} will become the jelly to your peanut butter ladies, i promise.
the trick to this trade is they don't always have the full length pant ones in stock, 
so i have made a habit of looking for them every time i go and just pick up a new pair whenever i find them in my size.
you know - for that gosh awful day they stop selling them.

they are stretchy but not sheer, comfy but not homless looking and last foooorever.
even better? this secret will only set you pack $8 little ones.

but guess what? 
if you order online this week you can get them for $5!
i know that's the sacrifice of five diet cokes, but trust me they are worth it.
hop on it {here}, before i buy them all myself!

ootw: obsession of the week.

i had a twitter follower {who also happens to be one of my favorite long distance friends} suggest a few weeks ago that i do a blog on purchases i love.
now, considering i have a hard time even keeping up with you fine loves, i won't go off and start a brand new blog, but i will start a "buy of the week" post...promising to keep up with it as often as possible.
and hey! if you find any great buys or steals or deals or just something you can't live without, i will showcase it.
how's that for collaboration?

so my maiden purchase is all about bedding.
granted it happened a few weeks ago, but clearly i'm not over it.
i always thought people who raved about thread count in sheets were even more high maintenance than me.
it turns out, they are just smarter than me.
{it happens more often than i care to admit.}

so as i was prancing throughout target i found the shabby chic linens i have wanted forever were FINALLY on sale.
so i swapped those suckers up {last one!} and figured why not.
now the only "why not" i have myself thinking these days is in terms of why i didn't turn up that thread count sooner!

honestly loves, it feels like i sleep in a cloud now, not just on top of one.
sometimes when i come home at night i get into bed to work rather than typing at my desk because i'm so in love.
i will even go as far as to say that i would pay full price for these suckers if need be.

you ready for your own little piece of heaven?
head on over to target today to snatch them up.
{not sold online, sadly}
happy dreams!

yes, let's.

my world is moving so fast right now i don't even know where to begin, does it feel the same for you too?

i have stories and stories galore.
so let's just start with the plain and simple for tonight:

chicago was an absolute blast and i promise to post all my pictures and words about it this weekend.
i feel like in terms of that city and those people i finally found my tribe in life.
but more on that later.

my dating world has burst wide open and i'm pretty sure i could write a book on my love life over the past month: the good, the bad and the reallyyyyy ugly...more on THAT later, as well.

guess which team punched their ticket to the western conference final tonight?
and because the ducks are currently battling it out against the kings for the other spot in the series, my hawks are guaranteed to play in california next week no matter what!
here i come!

i'm busy.  
beyond, beyond, beyond busy.
like can't even think straight busy.
but it's a thankful busy, because i am living so many dreams right now that i have no room to complain.

speaking of dreams,
if you miss me enough on here you can hop over to my other job {here} and find me any given night covering a ducks game.
yes...this is real life.

i can't wait for summer & beach time & relaxing nights.
the only good thing about being a die hard hockey fan is my stomach literally goes into knots and by the time the games are over it's bed time so lots of dinnerless nights for me.  
which means last week when i went swimmie suit shopping i was down another size!
the things i do for these people.

bestie emi and moi are planning a palm springs bash in the dead of august, and being the two krazy kitties we are the heat of it all sounds thrilling.

thee lil' bro is home from school for the summer and i finally have my partner in crime back by my side.  watch out OC!

things are great.
life is thrilling.
and i promise to be back on here more often.
until then...
