Happy Election Day!

I saw this super cute idea on Jodie's blog - she's got some great platforms for when she becomes President. Regardless of who you're voting for, I'm sure we can all agree I've got some good ideas:

If I were President... 

There would be no limit on how long you have to return items, and you wouldn't have to have the receipt.

Tory Burch would dress me and I'd give everyone Reva's on their birthdays!

JCrew would offer free shipping on ALL purchases - not just purchases over $150

Dental school would only take 3 years

Housekeepers would be provided to everyone once a month

Every office would provide free chair massages for everyone in the afternoon

Everyone would get free southwest points to visit their family whenever they want

And of course I'd end bullying, allow gay marriage and free food to poor people and all that good stuff...

Did I miss anything?

Also, I cannot keep this to myself - you all have got to head over to Whitney's blog to see her awesome "Toast - To the Candidates? As if!" Here's a preview - trust me you want to see the whole thing!

"Excuse me, but I have donated many expensive Italian outfits to Lucy, and as soon I get my license, I fully intend to brake for animals, and I have contributed many hours to helping two lonely teachers find romance."

"Do you prefer 'fashion victim' or 'ensembly challenged'?"

Go to Whitney's blog and read the rest now!

What's on my DVR

It's fall and that means all the new good TV is on! And I watch a lot of it! - seriously, people ask me what I do while Dave studies in the evenings... my usual answer is that I watch a lot of TV and it's nice not having to fight over the remote. (what will I do when he graduates? - that's a problem for another day)

Here's what I'm watching - with my opinions sprinkled in!

The majority of Sunday is spent watching NFL RedZone - I signed up for an all girls fantasy football team this year and I'm actually pretty into it. I think it's b/c my team is awesome - I'm in first place. NBD. (even though the girl I played this week started 3 guys that were injured... it still counts)

Sunday nights - RHOA just started - it's not my fave RH franchise but I love me some Nene.

Cannot wait for the premier of RHOBH tonight!!! I wonder how Adrienne's divorce will play out... I thought their bickering was kind of cute in the beginning, then it got a little weird. Kyle and Lisa are still my faves. I wish Camille was still an "official cast member" I read she'll just have a supporting role.


Happy Endings - Favorite show right now! - everyone please start watching! It's the new friends but SO much funnier! In case you need some convincing - watch this clip:

The Mindy Project - watched a couple times, pretty funny, loved her book so I'm giving this show a chance.

Modern Family - duh - loved this show since the beginning, although I do think that Claire needs to eat a few chili cheeseburgers - sometimes her thinness is distracting.

Nashville - LOOOVE! Thank goodness Connie Britton got off of American Horror Story - she's amazing and I don't do horror. I look forward to this show the most every week!  (Maybe b/c I have a date with a friend to watch it every week but also  b/c it's Amazing!)

Lots of good shows on Thursdays(we usually save a few of these for the weekend or Monday) - I'll rank them in order of my faves:

First - The League - see above - obsessed with Fantasy Football and this show's humor reminds me of most of the guys Dave and I hang out with. (don't judge)
Second - Parks and Rec - Ron Swanson and Aziz Ansari. Enough said.

Third - It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - weird humor - but Charlie has my stomach hurting from laughter most episodes. If you watch it then you get it.

Fourth - Real Housewives of Miami - these girls know how to bring the crazy! I don't really have a favorite on this one, I think the cast is a little too large to really get to know any of them, but maybe that's what they're going for on Miami? (I'm not sure any of them are likable if you see them for over 10 minutes)

Fifth - The Office - been watching this since the 1st season so we've got to finish it out, I'm excited to hopefully see Jim move onto bigger and better things and I still hope that Angela's baby is Dwight's.

Shark Tank - makes me want to invent something and become bff's with Mark Cuban. We usually watch this earlier the next week b/c we're never home Friday evenings.

So what am I missing? Or what all are you watching? Please tell me I'm not the only one with this many shows in their weekly lineup...

Fall Shopping

If I'm good for anything it's a post about shopping. Let's get down to business shall we?

I always find it hard to pick shoes in the fall/winter. I own 6 pairs of boots that I still love to wear but some days I don't want boots and my only other closed toe shoes (since I decided I'm over Sperry's) are my TB Revas, which you cannot wear with socks. My office is fah-reezing, so cold that I had to smuggle in a contraband space heater. (If you tell on my I'll cut you) So basically I'm left with boots everyday.

I've recently started liking the looks of sneakers with casual-wear.

Apparently this trend has been going on for a while... this was in Vogue last fall. But in typical Oklahoma fashion we're a year or two behind.

Not sure the MC Hammer pants on #5 will ever make it to Oklahoma and I'm OK with that.
I'm thinking this is the type of outfit I'd rock them with the most:

Dark gray thermal, skinnies, navy loop scarf with gray boots - would love to replace with new sneaks.

So, I've narrowed my choices down, please tell me which you think I'd be able to wear most!
I love the light neon yellow on these and the gray is neutral so I could wear them with a lot.
ASICS - Tiger Serrano - on Sale! 

ASICS - Tiger California - not on sale but the red would be good to have for gameday..

What do you think of the look? Do you have any other good ideas for winter footwear that doesn't involve boots?
