What I'm Loving Wednesday


Hey y'all! I'm back for What I'm Loving Wednesday!

1. First of all, I am loving my new blog layout made for me by Meg @ O. is Me! Did she out-do herself or what? I just told her I knew I wanted hot pink and zebra and showed her a couple of fonts I liked and look at what she pulled out of her hat! I'm still tweaking things here and there but for the most part, it's done and I am in LOVE!

2. I'm loving that I have a friends and family coupon at Macy's starting today good for 25% off pretty much everything. I think I might go buy the sunglasses and purse I talked about here.

3. I'm loving the fact that I am getting back on the weight loss bandwagon. I had a few bad weeks and I just joined Myfitnesspal.com. I'm going to try using the calorie counting method now instead of the points on Weight Watchers. My name is savs1027 so if you're on there, come find me!


4. I'm loving that I have facebook back! I've been doin' a lot of creepin' ;)


5. I'm loving that 2 of our sweet friends got engaged recently and Saturday we are going out to dinner for a big celebration! (PS - that just leaves me and John.....)


6. Last, I'm lovin' that today is John's last day of class for the semester. We have Wedneday night's back together :)



Now y'all go and link up with Jamie to tell us what you're loving today!

Tail Wagging Tuesday!

I'm linking up with C Mae again for Tail Wagging Tuesday! Today's theme is 'Where your pet sleeps'

Honestly, I have no idea where Pixie sleeps. She will start out in bed next to me, but then she gets down in the night and I have a feeling she prowls all night. Cotton will either sleep in between me and John or down at our feet, under the covers. John snapped this picture one night when we were in bed :)



Go link up with C Mae to play along!

Target Tuesday

I'm linking up with Tara from Fabulous But Evil for the first time today for Target Tuesday!





Y'all I love Target, but their website just isn't as good as the store. It's hard to navigate. But, I still found some oh so cute things that are now on my wish list!

My theme this week is for the home. I'm going all out today and doing a full home re-do! :)




I love this quilt. I love the colors and how you can get multiple solid color sheets to change it up.









I just told John the other day that I wanted a new rug for the living room. I love the one we have now, but it's really dark so I'd like to have a new one to brighten the living room up for the Spring.



And who doesn't want one of these babies? I'd love to have this red beauty sitting on my kitchen counter.



We live in a townhome with a small patio area and I would love to have these rocking chairs out there for the summer.



And how cute is this little cat planter to sit outside next to those rockers?

What are you wanting at Target right now? Go link up with Tara to shop along with us!

What's on Savanah's phone



I haven't done one of these in awhile and I have a bunch of pretty random pics on my phone that I want to share so here they are!




lovin' these gel manicures that last 2 weeks!








Easter gift from work...
it's the thought that counts ;)


an abandoned 2 week old kitty my friend found and needed a home
I might have cried when she told me they might have to put it down :(


John's sister had surgery so I took this "Speedy Recovery" cookie bouquet to their house Wednesday night when John was at school


another gel manicure. I went a tad bit crazy this time with purple ;)


Remember the post where I painted the cross at Mad Potter last weekend? Well they fired it and I was able to pick it up Thursday. I LOVED it!


Momma fixed my hair. I love having her in cosmetology school!


A "just because I don't get to see you as much as I want" gift from my momma!


I miss Chicken Express. Come to Houston... please!

Easter weekend

First of all, I hope everyone had a great weekend and a wonderful Easter!

I had a fabulous time with my family in Ft. Worth and only have iPhone pics to show for it due to the fancy Nikon BREAKING! :(

Friday afternoon we met Patricia and Sebastian for lunch at BJ's in The Woodlands. I haven't seen Patricia since her wedding in June so I was so happy we were able to meet up with them on our way out of town. I promised her a spot on the blog even though this is a terrible picture! ;)



We arrived in Ft. Worth Friday night and we went to eat at Bonedaddy's for John's belated birthday dinner. He just loves that place and can't wait for them to decide to build one in Houston.

Saturday my mom had everyone over to the house for an Easter fish fry and I was glad I got to see everyone in my family, plus some!


I got down on the floor to take a pic with Beau but he got up and left me


Me and Drover

Celie and Bryson

Celie and Beau



After we ate we had an Easter egg hunt out in the yard and pasture. The adults had lottery tickets in the eggs and there was one "golden egg" with $20 in it. Guess who found the golden egg? ME! And me and John also won a total of $7 on our lottery tickets. Can you guess where I found the money egg? Yup, under the horse poo. Gross!


yup, had to take a pic of it




me and my bro




Me and Kenley


everyone was worn out at the end of the night!

Sunday morning we went to church with my family and then went to IHOP for breakfast. Now we are back 'home' in Houston and spending time with the kitties who were left home alone all weekend :(

AND... I am so excited... Lent is OVER! I officially have facebook back and I think I was on it the whole 4 hour drive home. As my mom would say, I was creepin'. ;)

Hope everyone has a great week!
