Fill in the Blank Friday Fancies

Happy Friday, Veterans Day and 11/11/11!!! I hope that everyone is having a wonderful morning thus far! Today I write to you from the wonderful kitchen table in my parents house in Sugar Land, TX! My momma picked me up from the airport at 8:00 a.m. this morning and I've been up since 3:30 a.m. Pittsburgh time! I'm still going strong for now, but anticipate a need for caffiene this afternoon when I'm driving to San Antonio!

First I would like to give a shout out to all the amazing men and women that have served our country. You are the reason we are still free. Life would not be the same without your service and I am so grateful. I want to give an even more special shout out to both of my amazing parents who served in the US Army. My dad graduated from the United States Military Acadamy at West Point and was in the Army for 5 years. My mom entered the Army after graduating from college and was a nurse until I was born! I also want to recognize the best father-in-law ever, Phil Gougler who served in the Army Reserves. The Reservists play an important role in our military and deserve recognition as well!

Today I'm linking up with Lauren from The Little Things We Do for Fill in the Black Friday!

1. My favorite new blog of the moment is Caffeinated Conversations. Not necessarily a new blog, but I'm a new follower!

2. Something I am thankful for is the time I have to spend with Family and Friends during the holidays!

3. Something that made me laugh this week was a long discussion with the hubby on how Advil does NOT cure bruises. Seriously it doesn't. You probably had to be there though.

4. An item that is currently on my wish list is a new living room set to go in the new to us home that we will buy in Houston! House hunting trip is right after Thanksgiving!

5. I am excited about running Rock 'n Roll San Antonio this Sunday and spending the weekend with two of my best friends.

6. If I were a color I would be pink. It's a happy color that represents joy and femininity!

7. My favorite way to spend a chilly fall day is snuggling under the covers with my pup and hubby possibly with a hot chocolate or even coffee and Bailey's!


Now moving onto this week's edition of My Friday Fancies! I'm linking up with Alison from {long distance loving}!

This is Alison's 50th edition of Friday Fancies, thus her "golden anniversary"!

  2. Necklace - Betsy Johnson via
  3. Shoes - Dolce {Only $39.99} via
  4. Ring - Tiffany & Co. via
  5. Clutch - Lilly Pulitzer via
I will definitely say that the dress is my FAVE! It would be perfect for a holiday party. Sparkles are definitely in this year. I also loved pairing all the gold with navy. It's a little bit softer than black and a nice contrast to the bright gold.

I hope that everyone is having an amazing Friday and that your work day is almost over! I'm looking forward to taking off for San Antonio in just a few hours! Have a great weekend, I'll be back on Monday for an amazing San Antonio weekend recap!

Until next time...
With love and God bless,
