Hi, everyone!

I am determined that since today is a new week and tomorrow is a new month, that this week will go better than last. It's not even 10 a.m. yet, and I've wrapped up two major cases at work that have been outstanding and gone for a walk with the Mister. So let's count this as a success.


Today is also my younger brother's 21st birthday. He and his girlfriend will be coming to visit us this weekend so that I can take him out for a drink. I don't know why he's wearing snakes in this picture. Maybe all college-aged guys just have to be goofy when a camera is pointed in their direction.



Today's Musical Monday song is one that makes me want to dance. I don't know how I'd never heard Kimbra before, but I'm loving the catchiness of this song; it just makes your toes tap.





Who shouldn't start a Monday with some dance party?

Good morning, lovelies!

I hope that y'all have had a fabulous weekend so far. Welcome back for the Weekly Round-Up linky party, hosted by me and Miss Angie from My So-Called Chaos. We want this to be something that focuses on sharing our favorite reads throughout the week so that you can find fabulous, new blogs to read.

So, here are the rules:

1. Grab the button.
2. Write a little list of your favorite reads this week and why.
3. Link up below and go find some fabulous new ladies to be friends with.

That said, here were my favorite reads lately:

1. One of my favorite dishes to be make when the weather gets cooler is chili, and I'm always on the lookout for a new recipe. This sweet potato chili recipe that Ricki Jill from Art @ Home featured sounds so yummy. And it's vegetarian! Photo credit: Art @ Home

2. Whitney from McKenzie Wild talks about a project for next month called Bold Moves October, which I think would be a lot of fun to participate in. I'm not sure if I'll have the time to do something every day, but maybe I could set some weekly goals.

3. Meg from Meg O. on the Go shared a review of her Vintage Pearl necklace and is hosting a giveaway. These pieces are gorgeous, and you want to check them out. Photo credit: Meg O. on the Go

4. It's always great to celebrate life's moments with my blog friends from the past 4 years so I was especially excited to see Krysten from Why Girls are Weird got engaged during her birthday trip.

5. I keep saying that I want to get back to doing more writing, and while I haven't found the time to actually make that happen, I have been able to do a little reading about improving my writing. This week, I really enjoyed this compilation of writing advice, which was put together by Aubrey from The Daily Simple. Photo credit: The Daily Simple

Good morning, lovelies!

Confession is good for the soul, so grab the button and let it all out. You'll feel better when you're finished.

I confess...

Our weather has turned into fall weather, and that thrills me. We've had the air conditioning off for about a week now. One of my favorite parts of this time of year is sleeping with the windows open; there is nothing like fresh air in house.

I confess...

Another thing I love about fall is that we can start making the comfort food. Since the Mister and I participate in a veggie co-op, we always have a lot of fresh produce around. The other day, the Mister made an awesome broccoli cheddar soup, and kale and potato soup is on the menu soon too.

I confess...

In a few minutes, I am hitting the road for yet another morning of healthcare reform product training. After this class, I only have one more day (I think), and I'm so ready to just spend a full day in my office getting things done.

I confess...

The Mister shared this photo with me yesterday from our camping trip at the beginning of the month, and I'm ready to head back to Tennessee and away from continuing education classes.


I confess...

This weekend's plans include painting the hallway and re-hanging the bathroom door. Exciting stuff.

Easy peezy. Now on to the wine. My work life these days is getting crazier and crazier with no end in sight... so I might be going through the wine a little more quickly lately.

Tuesday, September 24

Today is the day to show of my favorite color swap package. I was partnered up with Victoria from Lost in Boston, and she's one cool chick. She talks fashion and nature and recipes and books.

And she's only been blogging since June, so you can totally catch up on her entire blog. I'm particularly partial to her polyvore fashion posts.

My box came in on Saturday morning, but I hadn't run hers by the post office yet so I decided it wasn't fair to open until hers was in the mail. Believe it or not, I actually exercised restraint.

Victoria was really good to me. My favorite color is gunmetal silver (think dark carbon), but that's hard to find, so I went with red. This what she sent me:
My goodies includeded, a red tervis cup lid, lotion, Aubrey Organics body spritzer, red AND silver nail polish, a cherry-scented car jar, tic tacs and Wine Country lip stain (in pinot).

I feel thoroughly spoiled, and I'm excited to try a few new brands. And I love that she picked a few things that were red but also encompassed other interests of mine.

Thanks so much, Victoria!

And thanks as always to Miss Angie and Beth from Chaotic Goddess Swaps for hosting another successful and fund swap.

Musical Mondays
I've been re-watching Private Practice lately, and in one of the episodes, this version of "Time After Time" is playing in the background. I've always loved this song, and this version is especially pretty.

1. Lisette from Northern Belle Diaries shared two awesome fall recipes that make my mouth water. It has just started getting cool this week, so I should be able to whip these up soon. Photo credit: Northern Belle Diaries

2. We still have plenty of squash in our fridge that needs to be used up, so this lemon squash muffin recipe shared by Lindsey at Follow the Ruels is just what I needed. Bonus, the Mister loves lemon! Photo Credit: Follow the Ruels

3. Like Christina at Easily Entertained, going thru the word verification song and dance when I'm commenting on blogs is one my biggest blogging pet peeves. Luckily, she shows you how to turn off word verification.

4. My lovely co-host Miss Angie from My So-Called Chaos turned out another great edition in her New Blogger series. If you've ever had a question about hosting a linky party, this is a great place to start. Photo credit: My So-Called Chaos

5. As I was blog-stalking getting to know my Favorite Color Swap partner, Victoria from Lost in Boston, I decided to make her recipe for crock pot meat loaf. I am happy to report that it was a success; the Mister and my father both loved it. Photo credit: Lost in Boston

Grab button for FRIDAY CONFESSIONAL at HIGH-HEELED LOVE-button
<div class="FRIDAY-CONFESSIONAL-HIGH-HEELED-LOVE-button" style="width: 200px; margin: 0 auto;"> <a href="http://www.high-heeledlove.com" rel="nofollow"> <img src="http://i1151.photobucket.com/albums/o621/highheeledlove/Blog%20Graphics/HighHeeledLove_zps6db62c81.jpg" alt="FRIDAY CONFESSIONAL at HIGH-HEELED LOVE" width="200" height="256" /> </a> </div>
Hello lovelies!

Confession is good for the soul, so grab the button and let it all out. You'll feel better when you're finished.

I confess...

Work is kicking my rear this week. I've been in so much product training for the new exchanges starting on October 1 that I've barely been able to keep up with life. It's irritating to do more than 16 hours worth of training in a week and still feel like I'm not ready for a big transition, but such is the insurance industry these days.

I confess...

My daddy rocks. He spent two days at our house this week working on our hallway/bathroom situation. The man knows how to get things done. So far, he's taken down a door, framed and walled it in and mudded it. He's also pulled up the old flooring and put new down...and tomorrow he and the Mister will hang trim so it should be ready to prime and paint. When we paint, we're going to finish up the last few touches in the bathroom, and hopefully, I'll be ready to share pictures on the blog.

I confess...

Last night, I was perusing instagram and came across this picture taken by Lena B.

I have officially declared to the Mister that I want a blue kitten. We then spent a bunch of time looking up Russian blue kitten photos on google.

I confess...

This little dog played escape artist three different times yesterday while my dad was here. My pup can climb a fence, dig out of a yard or just wriggle out of a collar if she really wants to go. I don't know what I'm going to do with her.


I confess...

I finished up my Favorite Colors Swap shopping this morning, and it's ready to go to the post office. I've been so busy that I haven't even had a chance to introduce my swap partner, Victoria from Lost in Boston. I've been loving blog-stalking her and can't wait to see how she like her package full of purple goodies.
I confess...

I've skipped the last couple months of Julep to keep more scratch in the bank, but I'm so excited about the October collection, The Rebel Set, that I even went for a couple add-ons this month. These are going to be perfect for Halloween.


If you'd like to check out being a Julep Maven, use my referral link before September 24 and Julep will email you a code to try your first box free.

Hello, friends!

Welcome back for this week's Wino Wednesday, co-hosted with Danielle from Sweet Southern Girl.  It looks like we're both running a little late with the linky today. I blame insurance training; I'm sure Danielle blames wedding planning + new job.

Let me cover the ground rules for the party:
  1. Grab the Wino Wednesday Button
  2. Write a post that is wine-related
  3. Link up and visit with the other partiers
Easy peezy. Now on to the wine. So I know it's still September, but we got our first Halloween party invitation this week, and...
