Want List {September 2015}

Want List {September 2015}

I talked about wanting a new blog design HERE. I just feel like I need to change things up a bit. It's been two years since my last blog redesign. I feel like it's the equivalent to buying a new purse, you need to change up your look every once in awhile. It puts a little more pep in your step. Nothing expensive or extravagant, just something simple, but new.

Speaking of new purses. I am going to try and sell some of my older COACH purses. We'll see how that goes. I'm not sure exactly how to do it, but I need to. Do apps like POSHMARK really work or is EBAY better? I have way too many that I don't use and would love to give them new homes.

I have my eye on a couple new purses from JustFab, but have been hesitating on biting the bullet. Again, something new, nothing expensive, just new. I want the BROOKS in Cobalt and the ZACHARY in white.

I also want THESE boots from JustFab. I think they would be a great addition to my winter wardrobe. Even though winter in Vegas is completely different than winter in Minnesota, I love the color and detail.

Wayne recently took over our home laptop for work purposes. Which is a good thing, because now he can work from home which is super exciting. BUT now I feel myself having to sit at our desktop computer for everything which isn't always possible or comfortable for long periods of time. First world problems I tell you.  I miss being able to sit in the rocking chair or on the couch or in bed and having that flexibility. I have my eye on THIS one. It's nothing special or huge. Just a very basic PC. For what I use it for I think it would be just fine. And it's pink and girly.

I need a new wallet and have had my eye on a Michael Kors wallet for quite sometime. I like THIS one in Chili. I've had the same Coach wallet since high school and it's starting to fall apart. I would like to find a nice one to replace it.

I want a good pair of cowboy boots. I have wanted a pair for awhile, but they can be expensive. There is a country festival coming to Vegas in October and I would love to get a pair before then, but we'll see. I really like these. Brown and simple with a little bit of detail.

 That's all for now friends. Anything you've been wanting lately?

Happy Friday! These are things that I have been loving this week.


The Fifth Harmony album called Reflection. This is the girl group equivalent to One Direction. They were all found by Simon Cowell on X-Factor. They are all lovely girls. I have had a chance to meet them a couple times. This album is awesome. Every song on it is really great. It has been my go to in the car lately and Hailey loves them and the music, too.


I love these Danskin knit shorts from Walmart. They were $3 each (on sale) at our Walmart by our house. That is where I do the majority of our shopping. I first got two pairs and then went back a couple days later and got three more all in different colors. They are the MOST comfortable shorts ever. And so cheap. I love Walmart for that reason and I have been living in these shorts daily for a couple weeks. Also, I am hoping to get back to a workout schedule soon now that I have been cleared by the DR and I found out with the move that I don't have or fit into many of my workout shorts.   


I know I'm late, but I LOVE this video. I loved JB's first Carly Rae Jepsen (Call Me Maybe) video with Selena Gomez (too soon?) and I love this one too. I must admit that I am looking forward to JB's new music.


Nutty Bars. I have been overly obsessed with these lately and I find my late night or middle of the night snacking has gotten ridiculous. But I just can't help it. They are delicious.


I try and limit my beauty products to no more than one new product a week. Sometimes depending on the budget I do one per pay period. If I don't set ground rules I can really go overboard.

That's all I got this week! I have a busy weekend planned with lots of fun things. What are you up to this weekend?

Summer TV {2015}

Summer TV {2015}

So in addition to THIS post about summer TV that I have been watching, you can also add all of these shows to the mix. A lot of these different shows are a product of me being up in the middle of the night with my newborn.

On A&E I have been watching Donnie Loves Jenny, The Wahlburgers and Lachey's Bar.

I have to admit I have always loved Jenny McCarthy and who doesn't love Donnie and NKOTB? I also love the Wahlbergs and have been a fan of their show since the beginning. I love their Mom, Alma. She's a hoot. Both shows are easy and quick to watch. I have to admit that Lachey's Bar is boring. I wanted to like it, but I find myself tuning out or doing other things. 

On E! I have been watching Hollywood Cycle, I am Cait, and Stewarts and Hamiltons. Although as the same with Lachey's Bar, I have been tuning out of Stewarts and Hamiltons and don't know if I will continue to watch it.

Wayne and I got caught up on Chrisley Knows Best which is on USA. We absolutely LOVE that show and Todd Chrisley is just HILARIOUS.

I have also seen all of season 1 of Lip Sync Battle on SPIKE. It's fun to see another side of the stars that are on the show.

I recently became acquainted with 'Don't Be Tardy' on Bravo. Kim (Zolciak now Biermann) is originally from the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Can you beleive I have never seen ONE episode of any of the Real Housewives shows? Well I caught a glimpse of the last season of 'Don't Be Tardy' and was hooked on Kim's antics. I just like how she keeps it real and loves her kids. I watched all of S3 and S4 just started on the 16th.

The latest season of Marriage Boot Camp just wrapped up. I missed a few episodes of the show, but now it's done. Also Kendra on Top just started another new season.

Another show that just started that Wayne and I are excited about is Fear the Walking Dead. If you know me, you know I love The Walking Dead and all things Daryl Dixon. I am excited to start this new show and see how it all started.

I'm excited for fall TV to start. The only new show I know for sure I am watching is Chicago Med, which is a spin-off from Chicago Fire and Chicago PD. The other ones that I have my eye on are Wicked City on ABC starring Ed Westwick and Blood and Oil on NBC starring Chace Crawford. Gossip Girl anyone? If you want to take a look at the fall premiere calendar go HERE.

That's it for now Hope ya'll are having a great week!

Hey hey!

It's #HashtagHumpday and I'm linking up with Laura and Lauren for the first time. Obviously since this is volume 1.

#Hashtaghumpday @ Genuinely Lauren

Basically you update your life and add hashtags at the end. I love a good and WAY too long hashtag.

So here we go.

I want to rename and redesign my blog. I have wanted to do it for awhile, but it just keeps getting pushed to the back burner. Plus, I can't really afford to right now with having a newborn, medical bills, and oh this whole NOT working thing. I'll probably wait for awhile until our wedding anniversary (November) or Christmas and then have it be something on my WANT list. Although my WANT list is SUPER long right now.  #diapersareexpensive #notenoughmoola #iwantallthethings

Anybody else excited for fall TV to come back? I can't wait!! #iwatchwaytoomuchtv #sorrynotsorry

I went to the dentist last week and need to get some work done. #ugh This is a new dentist that we are going to  in Las Vegas. Everything they do is digital and they have TV's on the ceiling. What? #fancy

Hailey starts soccer in about a month. This is her first year and first time playing an organized sport. #soccermom We had to get her all the gear. We let her pick our her own cleats. #frozenftw

We cancelled cable, but before you say way to go. Let me just say in the same breath that we signed up for DirectTV instead. #wehaveproblems The main reason is that we love the NFL and with growing up in the mid-west, one of our favorite things to do on a Sunday is turn on football, especially the Vikings, and just chill on Sundays. #beinglazyrules It's going to be weird with no snow on the ground, but I think we'll manage. #vegaslife

And that's all I have today because basically I have a newborn that gets up 2+ times a night. #moresleepplease #mombiezombie

Now go link up and #hashtag the Schmidt out of your blog post!
