Fill in the blank Friday

 Hallelujah  its  FRIDAY! This week has seemed super long, probably because I had off yesterday & today and have to work Saturday & Sunday :( Hopefully this will only be for a month or 2.
Linking up with The Little Things We Do for my first edition of:
1.   One of life's most simple pleasures is sleeping in.

2.    Working every Sunday for my job now makes me want to punch someone.

3.  I like my boyfriend  because, he truly appreciates me and makes me want to always be at my best. 

4.  Fabulicious is a funny word.

5.  If I had to choose one beauty product to use for the rest of eternity it would be Philosophy's purity face wash. It smells amazing and is doing wonders for my skin.

6.  I'm happy that I have so many amazing people in my life & that even though I complain about my job, I actually have one in this economy.

7.  I would never go skydiving. I do not have a fear of heights, just a fear of dying when jumping out of a plane. Just isn't for me!  

I am so very excited its the weekend!
My parents are out of town & I have to dog sit at their new house so I'm having a bonfire with some friends tomorrow night. Should be nice and relaxing way to wind down the summer :(  
Is there anything you want to do before summer is over?

Have a great weekend lovlies!

Dirt Cake

The bf was craving a childhood favorite this past week so I decided to whip up a batch for him!

 Pretty sure I haven't had dirt cake since I was 8, but it still was crazy good!

& because I am just an amazing girl, I decided to make a few mini cups for his younger brothers & sisters who range in age from 10-2 

So the kids will be enjoying these today sometime since it was kind of late when we brought these over last night.

{side bar, my apologies for the sucky photos. I took them on my iPhone & they didn't turn out so hot}

Enjoy your weekend & get some summertime treats!

Sex & the City 3??

While getting ready this morning for work I heard on Good Morning America that there is talk of a Sex & the City 3!!! Now this is very exciting, however, there is a small twist. This will not be a sequel, rather a prequel. Meaning, the movie will follow Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda & Samantha as teenagers and early twenty-somethings living in NYC.

So who will be playing our beloved favorites in their younger days you ask??

Well I think the choices they've picked could make for an amazing flick:

 Blake Lively

Selena Gomez

Emma Roberts

Elizabeth Olsen

The movie is still in the "talking stages" and these actresses haven't officially been asked to fill the fabulous shoes of these ladies. None of the original cast members make an appearance in the film, but I still think it will be a movie I will want to go see! 

What I'm Loving Wednesday!

Happy hump day everyone!

Linking up with Jamie for What I'm Loving on this rainy Wednesday in Milwaukee..

I'm loving the thunderstorm we're having today! Its been so crazy hot here that the rain will cool things off!

I'm loving that my friend Korabelle & I have a catch up date for tomorrow

I'm loving these next couple of ideas I found on Pinterest

Perfect for next to the entry door in my apartment

My motto for today:)

I've got a soft spot for owls - they're my sorority mascot.
How cute are these??

 Little cheesecake filled strawberries!
Hull the berries {take out middle}, fill with no-bake cheesecake mix & top with crushed graham cracker. Chill in fridge for a few hrs. 
Can you say delish?!
I may attempt making these for the bf's cousin's grad party this weekend!

I'm loving that I have an amazingggg guy in my life that always keeps me guessing & challenges me in every way.

Have a fabulous Wednesday lovlies!

Wednesday Link Ups!

Its hump day & I couldn't be happier! This week has been exhausting - mainly because its been extremely hot here for Wisconsin. Our temps are in the 80°-90°s with heat indexes making it feel like 110-115°! Crazy hot!

I'm linking up today with Sarah Beth @ Peace, Love, & Sweet Tea for her weekly link ups with Leigh Ashley, Jamie & Michelle. Play along with us! The more the merrier :) 

{one} what is your dream job?
If you had asked me this a year ago I would have told you something completely different, but my dream job is actually what I'm doing now - property management. I'm a leasing consultant.

{two} how many best friends do you have?
I have 3 best friends, we're the fierce foursome. I don't know where I'd be without these lovely ladies!

{three} what’s the longest road trip you’ve ever taken?
Driving from Wisconsin to Arizona to do Route 66..I was 12 & an only child so it was boring as hell.

{four} if you had to do one single thing every day for the next year, what would it be?
Work out because I've been trying to lose weight and get healthy!

{five} what’s one story your family always tells about you?
There's a ton of stories, but probably the one when we were going to pick up a puppy from a breeder and there was a girl there holding the last one. Her dad said she could have the dog but he said she had to wait to see what her mom said. Well I walked over to the girl and asked if I could hold the puppy. She gave him to me and then I said "Well, both my parents are here & they said I could have it so we're going to take him." That was mean, but I wanted a puppy!

{six} how did your parents pick your name?
It was between Ashley and Abby. And my mom said that when I was born, I didn't look like an Abby so Ashley Rose it was :)

{seven} what’s the one thing that scares you more than anything?Snakes. Period.

{eight} are you a good cook?
I think I am! I love cooking, especially for others, so I am excited to cook more for the new bf! 

{nine} where do you see yourself in 20 years?
Married, with at least 2 kids loving life. 
{ten} what’s your best childhood memory?
Camping with my cousins during the summer. We used to ride our bikes, fish, swim. It was the best. Now we're older and don't see each other much and I miss them!

Here's what I'm Loving on this July Wednesday:

The Heat! No, not the basketball team, the fact that its actually SUMMER in Wisconsin right now!
These summery dress from The Limited

That I am finallyyyy getting my new couch moved into my apartment tomorrow!
{will post pics of the new layout later this week!}

& lastly, this new work out I tried today after my Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred DVD


Few of the things I'm loving from Pinterest



Nice way to keep cool in the heat

I need. I want. I must have.
