Wednesday Loves

I'm linking up with Jamie again for another What I'm Loving Wednesday!


I'm loving some of the new blogs I found from last week's WILW and some of the great new followers who found my blog.  I'm still new to this but am appreciating the support thus far!  :)


I'm loving this super cute Kate Spade bag.  It is seriously the most perfect bag I have ever laid my eyes upon and I really feel like I have to have it. (Along with three of the four Lilly dresses I posted about yesterday.)

 I really want to run right over to the Kate Spade store this afternoon and bring one home.  I bought a gorgeous Kate Spade bag this winter on sale.  I'd been eyeing it for months and found it mid-winter for $200 less than its original price at the beginning of the season.  So the question of the day: To buy this bag full price and have it for spring and summer or to wait for the bag to go on sale and have it for a little bit of the summer and next year??


I'm loving that I got another call back for the job in New Jersey. This will be my third and final interview and members of the board of directors will be present. They will observe me do a read-aloud with a class of students and then we will have a final interview. There are several positions open at the school and they are all highly competitive but there is one that I am really, really, really (really!) hoping for. The interview is not until the end of next week so I have time to prepare. (And if all goes well - don't you think I will have earned the Kate Spade bag...and a Lilly dress or two?)


I am loving that I have been asked to judge a charity pageant this coming weekend supporting Relay for Life and the American Cancer Society.  ACS is one of the organizations that I have heavily supported during my years of pageant competition (and will absolutely continue to support) so it is very dear to me.  This is a cause that is especially close to my heart this year as my aunt and my mom's youngest sister continues to battle cancer.  I am so excited to see some friends from the pageant circuit.  I am winding down my last year as a title holder and preparing to be officially retired from competition so this will be a very fun event for me.  

Just for fun - here's a photo of me with some pageant friends at America's National Miss.


Most of all today, I am seriously loving my sweet boyfriend.  He has been so incredibly supportive of me lately while I have been super stressed with finishing my master's, my job hunt, and the pressure of relocating.  

Corey hates this picture but Shhh!!! He doesn't read the blog.  :)

  5. Elizabeth,

    Loved, Loved your post today. Congrats on all the things that you have going on in your life right now. It's all very exciting!

    I really like the bag, too. If you can afford it, and not go in debt then I say "buy the bag". It's lovely!

    It could be gift to yourself for finishing up your pageant title, and your hard work on landing that job. Sometimes, if we arrange our budget, we can buy smart.
