Link up with Jamie today to show what you're loving!

I'm loving that today is Wednesday and I do not have my tutoring session or 3 hour class tomorrow night thanks to the Jewish holidays! YAY for a night off before working all day Friday.

I'm loving this color of nail polish by Essie. It's called "Bahama Mama" and it is a deep plum color. It looks great on my nails.

I'm loving that three weeks from tomorrow I will be reunited with my best friend Steph! I cannot wait to surprise her with our friend Allison at the airport and the signs we plan on making welcoming her home. ha ha. And I'm excited to go back to New Paltz (our old stomping ground!) for a visit.

I'm loving that my boyfriend and I will be attending my friend Ashley's wedding the day after Thanksgiving. I LOVE weddings and I can't wait! :)

I'm loving that I have Saturday night off and Sunday off from work! I only have to work tonight, all day Fri and saturday morning. Not too bad!

I'm loving these tops from Old Navy (I have a bad desire to go shopping!!)

oh how pinteresting...

Pinterest sucks you in. Seriously. And I thought Facebook was a procrastination tool in college.....and now....yeah right! I have done nothing productive since I came home from work except look up fun/useless things on Pinterest.

Here are some of my new favorite finds:

I totally want a picture like this at my wedding. Every girl deserves a moment like this!

And for the Southern girl in me!

Totally would wear this shirt!

My motto...always!

Love this. Everyone deserves someone who makes them feel like this.

I would totally do this for a "Save the Date" announcement!

Love this cute look.

Love the green in this outfit!!

This makes me melt. I want my future husband to do this. Or I at least hope he does!

I could go on but unfortunately, I have to go tutor my student and then babysit later! Don't worry...I'll be back with a pinterest dump later in the week =)

Aruba, Jamica, oh i wanna take ya

Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego
baby why don't we go?

Oh Beach Boys. Their song "Kokomo" really makes me want to take a vacation. Like bad. My boyfriend says he is taking me on a cruise as part of my birthday & Christmas present(s) but we shall see. I keep telling him to NOT go back on his word because he has tortured me with this. But I seriously .LOVE. to travel! I loved jet-setting across Europe while I studied abroad. I would have traveled more if I had more money.

I definitely want to go on a trip next year. With one best friend. With more than one in a huge group...whatever! So I started playing on and holy crap, I would TOTALLY pay $760 for an all inclusive stay in Punta Cana, the Dominincan Republic. Or I could pay $761 to go to St. Thomas. Or $592 for St.Lucia! Or even $702 to go to Cabo San Lucas. Man, the options are just endless!!! So, now the big plan is to save money...and determine who wants to go with me.

The Yankee v. Red Sox game yesterday was AWESOME! It was a double header because Friday's game got rained out. We had tickets to the 1:05 game and it was pretty great. There was a tribute to Mariano Rivera for his 602 saves making him the all-time saver in baseball history (I think). It was sweet. And I was super happy because Derek Jeter played! I wish Swisher played but he was playing in the 2nd game. They killed the Red Sox 6-2 in the first game but they lost in the second game...which had 14 innings! I can't wait to upload the pictures.

This is one of my favorite linkups! It is time for Seriously?! Thursday with Becky @ From Mrs To Mama.

1. It really isn't that hard to put laundry away but I have a stack sitting on my desk chair. Really? I would much rather nap or watch Gilmore Girls (almost to season 6!) than put laundry away. What is my problem? Seriously?!

2. Is $30 really too much to spend on a round-trip train ticket and a subway card for a day to the city? None of my friends want to drive to the Yankee/Red Sox game we're going to on Sunday, me included, because driving in NYC is like sitting in h*ll and who wants to pay $20 to park a car? So we're taking a train and the subway and it'll cost $30 roundtrip. Really my boyfriend doesn't need to complain about it since *I* bought his ticket. Ha, boys will be boys and be silly. SERIOUSLY?!

3. I loved being asked if I want to work for someone 15 minutes before the shift starts. No thank you! I don't mind covering if I don't have anything to do but I ain't canceling plans to go work. SERIOUSLY?! Just work it.

4. I am OH-SO glad my school doesn't know the right stuff to tell the students. I have no idea what to expect with the Special Education Content Specialty Test on Saturday so it's kind of a relief if I don't get the passing score I can retake it after I study my BUTT off for my Spanish CST in November and pass both. SERIOUSLY?! Get yo act together!

5. I made my boyfriend watch Law & Order SVU last night. First off, he has never seen it....SERIOUSLY?! WTH...such a great and addicting show (I'm watching it as I write this post). Secondly, Elliot Stabler (aka Chris Meloni) was not on it. I thought this season was going to be his LAST and he wouldn't be in as many episodes. SO SO SO SO NOT FAIR! I have no one to drool over (except Derek on Grey's). SERIOUSLY?!

6. I should have never joined Pinterest. I like to waste my life away on it. SERIOUSLY?!

7. I forgot that I wanted to watch Glee's premiere the other day and forgot to DVR it. Now FOX won't let you watch it until 8 days or something AFTER it has aired. SERIOUSLY?! I missed the original bandwagon on this show so I wanna jump on now. Way to rain on my parade.

{What I'm Loving!}

Today is Wednesday, one of my favorite days of the week! Partly because it is almost the weekend and especially today since I don't have to work. =) And of course, the What I'm Loving Wednesday linkup with Jamie @ This Kind of Love.

I'm loving that yesterday the 20th was one month until my best friend Stephanie comes to visit! I haven't seen her since April (before that it was TWO years) so this is exciting. I miss her a lot.

I'm loving that while it is fall (which is not one of my favorite seasons), it's time for the SEASON PREMIERES of my favorite shows! Let's see...I'm DVRing the season premiere of Law & Order SVU (love me some Elliot Stabler!) tonight along with Dance Moms (addicted) and tomorrow Grey's Anatomy is TWO hours. I love me some DerMer!

I'm loving that I found out a HUGE amount of pressure to have both my Spanish CST test completed and my Special Education CST completed before February 2012 is off my shoulders! Apparently my school was wrong but I can take my time getting it. I am taking one test this Saturday so after that (I'm kinda going in blind for it), I can focus on my Spanish CST.

I'm loving the hangouts I have been having with some of my co-workers lately. Just meeting up for some drinks & playing pool on a Monday night (or Sunday night that got caught short when a manager fell off a ladder) is fun. I really love this job more than my previous one...should have left that one a LONG time ago!

I'm loving that my birthday is in a few months...hopefully my boyfriend will come through on his promise of the tropical cruise he said he will be taking me on. And I just *may* buy these Uggs as an early birthday present:

I'm loving the song "Without You" by David Guetta & Usher. It is my jam. I love rocking out to it in the car on my way to work. Puts me in a good mood!

What are you loving this week?!

I'll Be There For You...

When the rain starts to pour! FRIENDS is hands-down my favorite TV show ever. I was only like 8 when it debuted on TV but seriously, once I was older, I would watch EVERY episode. I had my US History AP exam the day after the series finale and let's just say, I probably did less studying than I should have that night.

I loved the friendship they all had on the show. I always hoped I could have a BFF friendship like Monica & Rachel. And to avoid that on-again/off-again relationship between Ross & Rachel. I own all 10 seasons on DVD and just might have to start watching it after I am done watching Gilmore Girls.

Here's some of my favorite moments and some favorite quotes from the show:

"See? He's her lobster!"

Oh, the cheesecake episode!

So fitting as they walked out.

OMG who remembers when Ross got so tan?!

Who remembers when Monica put the turkey on her head and danced for Chandler?

When they made the bet and had to switch apartments

This was one of my favorite Ross & Rachel moments

Remember when they poked Ugly Naked Guy!

Loved this one!


Again, one of my favorite moments!

They don't know that we know they know we know - about Monica & Chandler..classic season 5!

Ross & Monica's dance from season 6.

Oh classic season 4! This was one of my FAVORITE Monica quotes!

Gilmore Girls

Raise yo hand if you have ever watched this fabulous show. *RAISES HAND* I absolutely loved it. I am oh-so-sad it ended after 7 years on the air. I own all seven seasons on DVD and I am currently on season 3 now. I've seen them all before but I just love this show. Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham's character) cracks me up! And I always wished I was as smart as Rory.

Here are just some of my favorite moments:

Haha who remembers when Rory went golfing with Richard in season 1?

Love this quote!

And this one too!
Rory's first day at Yale. Makes me want to go back to college!

Luke & Lorelai were one of my favorite TV couples, after Ross & Rachel from FRIENDS (that show will get a post in itself another time ;))

She was too darn smart!

I hope one day I can have a bond with my daughter(s) like Rory & Lorelai had!


Oh I feel this SO often!!

HAHA who remembers when Logan gave this to Rory? PS love her facial expression.

Hehe. Love their relationship.

My sentiments EXACTLY! I am so not an early morning person.

If I added my favorite quotes, that would make the post way too long. I'll save that for another day.

Also going to play around with my pages and see if I can figure out a way to link ALL the old fanlistings I had on my Livejournal (who remembers that?!) that I would love to put here side by side but I don't even think that is possible on blogspot. Anyone know?

Wednesday, Wednesday, Wednesday!

A la tune of Rebecca Black's "Friday" song. HAHA. We all know how annoying yet CATCHY that darn song is.

Here's what I am loving today!

Link up with Jamie today!
I'm loving that after today, I do not have to work again until Saturday morning (HAHA I almost forgot about that shift!) I have Friday night AND Saturday night off this weekend which is almost unusual for me. Don't really care that I have to work a double on Sunday. I love me some weekend clean & organize!

I'm loving this new nailpolish color lady like by Essie. My mom made the mistake of taking me to get my nails done over a year ago and I haven't stopped since. It makes me feel more feminine with them. And I am not one to go buy nail polish in the store because I could never do my nails before. But I stumbled upon this color in CVS the other day and bought it. I can't wait to have it put on my nails next time I get them done!

I'm loving that I do not have my grad class this Thursday night. Who doesn't love a night off? Plus, apparently we have another one off in two weeks for the Jewish holiday, yay!

I'm loving that my tickets for the Yankees/Red Sox game came in the mail via Fed Ex yesterday! From the schedule on the website, it appears it is their last home game of the season and the last game in a series of three against the Red Sox aka right before the play offs for the World Series! I am so excited to go with my man, my bff Shannon & her boyfriend and our friend Olivia! It'll be a fun day.

I'm loving that I will soon hopefully be done with testing and actually have my teaching license. I really just want a teaching job!

oh i love me some pinterest

I wish I could remember my log in information for Pinterest to make my pin boards because I can spend hours on end (instead of doing other important things like cleaning my room or actually applying for a job) on it. Instead?

Take a look at some of my new favorite finds:

Love this quote!

I need to read the book now that I have seen the movie!!

Story of my days off!

My teaching philosophy

I totally wish I could pull an outfit like that off

i REALLY need to start working out again. someone motivate me!
