Just Marvelous

Oh to be talented. The kind of talent that makes people marvel, the work that compels a second look or the ability to make others downright envious. If I got a wish, that's what I'd wish for. Today I present to you something that makes me do all three...

I'm obsessed.

5 o'clock Monday Post

The weather in North Texas finally got the Fall memo and it is absolutely glorious. Just in time for my favorite Dallas weekend of the year (TX/ou), no less. I have huge plans of stocking up on pumpkins and gearing up for my big move. (roomie bought a house and it's the cutest thing I've ever seen!) Anyway, until then - I'll just work for the weekend...

By the way, I'm loving the new Arcade Fire album - it is amazing. Even more amazing is the "Wake Up" cover by John Legend & The Roots from Funeral. Total greatness!

Hoot Happies

During our Chi O chapter meetings we would have a time of "Hoot Happies" that involved the latest and greatest happenings in the lives of our sorority. Sometimes it was the A on the Chemistry exam and other times it was the successful date with the upperclassman. Regardless, it was a time for us to get a glimpse into the great things that are going on all around us - you can never have too much happy.

Anyway, here are a list of my happies for this this week:

Texas Monthly debuted their October issue and by the looks of things, I'm going to love it.

These two lovebirds will be joining hands in matrimony on Saturday. Love and marriage aside, they will undoubtedly throw a great party. (dum dum dee dum...)

On a related note, these two couldn't be more perfect for each other and decided that forever was a good idea. He swept her off to California for a dreamy engagement and the rest will be happily ever after.

In smaller news...
I found the most amazing travel coffee mug at Bed, Bath & Beyond and thought I would share. Copco To Go Car Cup - I love you.
Fall is here! And you know what this means: Tall boots! College football! Cooler temperatures! The ability to talk freely about costume ideas! Pumpkins! The State Fair!

Annnnd to top it all off - tomorrow brings the likes of Kings of Leon and The Black Keys into town for a fair-weathered lawn concert. To that I say...

bring on the happy.

Kaleidoscope Heart

la la la new Tunes Thursday...

la la la laaa - oh happy day! Sara B. welcomed Alyssa and I into New York what seems like FOREVER ago with Little Voice...we played it out and beyond. So now it's time to move things along and do the very same with this great album. Keep in mind, I haven't even listened to it all the way through and I'm already claiming its greatness...she's that good.

Hooray for a short week!
