Happy first of Fall, y'all! Every year, I like to create a Fall Bucket List. When it comes to seasons, Fall is my top fave with Winter coming in second place. This is probably one of the biggest reasons that I want to get out of Florida. I want to experience seasons, especially Fall! Not having the cooler temps and colors of foliage here make Fall "activities" not so fun. I don't get that feeling, you know? Plus, you sweat your toots off if you try to dress in fall apparel. So, needless to say, my bucket list is Florida style.
It's possible that I've said this before but this week has been one of the LONGEST weeks ever. Hurricane Irma definitely left her mark in Florida this week. So many people were out of commission at work thanks to either having evacuated the state or power outages that lasted days. We were working with a skeleton crew and then had to pull more than half of that crew to support another team that was experiencing major technical issues. It was just nuts. I was beat by Tuesday and couldn't remember what day it was. It was all a blur. I am so happy that it's Friday.
Lately, it's been very disappointing to see all the challenges that Latinos in this country have been facing as immigrants. Many who have sacrificed so much to come to this country in search of a better life for themselves and their loved ones. Through perseverance and determination, many have been successful and made a difference in their community and in this country. Today is the start of Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 - October 15) which celebrates the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.
Apple released the news of the next iPhone. Initial thoughts... WHY did they get rid of the rose gold?! The 2% conspiracy theorist in me is not sure how I feel about the facial recognition. The selling point of that for me is the opportunity to make animojis. I live for emojis and this is taking it to a whole other level! THREE |Hearth & Hand
Shut the front door. Two of my FAVES are coming together! Target and Magnolia. All the tears of joy!! November 5th could not come soon enough! Can you tell my excitement by the overuse of '!' ?
THIS guys. This is what dreams are made of... my dreams at least. If you were to ask my friends or co-workers, "What is the first thing that pops in your mind when you think of Vicky?", I assure you that 99% of those responses would be donuts. When someone tagged me in this Facebook post, my jaw seriously dropped. Obviously, I immediately tagged the husband and commented that we needed to make vacation in Cali and stay at this hotel. I WANT THAT DONUT! #vickyrunsondonuts
Okay, y'all know I'm a sucker for cute packaging and this collection has me all heart eyes and high five emojis. I seriously want everything in this collection! However that would be excessive and the husband would frown upon that unnecessary shopping spree. But I WANT IT!
