{Thankful Thursday} 5/1/14

If you hadn't noticed, it's now May. I like May. It's my birthday month. It's only May 1st, my birthday is May 31st so I have all month but I'm already planning. 

I would love a pool, my husband and a fruity drink. #dreaming

It's Thankful Thursday ladies, see what I've been thankful for this week below.

Pinterest/Blogger Recipes. This Chicken Florentine Lazy Lasagna from Shay is seriously amazing. Make it!

Sweets that aren't terribly unhealthy. Hello, my name is Mia and I have the worst sweet tooth. I want something sweet every  night, I don't do it, but I want it. This week I crushed up 1 graham cracker, added a scoop of fat free cheesecake pudding and a small handful of mini chocolate chips. Delicious creation. 

Pinterest/Blogger fashion inspiration. I have a serious amount of clothes in my closet, it's a problem. I feel like there are thousands of outfit combos, I just don't see them. I'd been wanting a new jean jacket, then my girl Biana posted some great jean jacket inspiration. I went to Old Navy and grabbed one, I then had everything to recreate this look. See, I never would have pulled these pieces on my own. Thanks girl! 

Sephora. Specifically my local one and the amazing employees. I went in this week to chat about BB & CC creams, girl hooked me up. Before I knew it I had a handful of things she wanted me to try. I love the girls at my local Sephora, they are the sweetest and always so eager to help me. I appreciate their amazing return policy as well. Being able to try things and return them if I don't like them is a major plus! 

My Panera Rewards. I thoroughly enjoyed my large hazelnut coffee and FREE blueberry bagel with honey walnut cream cheese. I decided to try the blueberry one this time, but normally I'm all over the cinnamon crunch ones. Holy crap those things are heaven. Who knows what I'm talking about?? If you haven't had the cinnamon one yet and you want to splurge, go get it. You won't be sorry.

  6. I got a jean jacket too for my birthday after Biana shared all of those looks! I'm loving recreating the outfits because like you I can't see what's right in front of me and I tend to wear the same things repeatedly.

  8. Honey Walnut cream cheese from Panera is something to ALWAYS be thankful for. Ha! My husband and I can't get enough of it, and their blueberry waffles are one of my favorites! Your outfit was perfection; you totally can pull off the army green pants! Looks like you are having a great week so far. :)

  9. Yay for samples! I don't know if it's just our Sephora's around here but I feel like i have to pull-teeth to ask for samples! Those cinnamon crunch bagels are SO GOOD. I haven't had one in ages but I could really go for one now :) Also, I know that outfit post was totally about the jean jacket, but where are your pants from? The outfit is so cute!

  12. May is my birthday month too! Mine is May 28th. :) I want a pool, a drink, and my husband too! That sounds like paradise. Awesome things to be thankful for. I've been meaning to go to Sephora and look at their BB creams, I didn't realize that you could get free samples, so that is really good to know! Also, I woke up this morning to a free 10 dollars at World Market because it's my birthday month which made me happy, so you should sign up for them, too!

  15. Your sweet tooth sounds like my sour tooth (sour gummies, anything chewy, so yes sweet as well on the sugar scale haha) Happy Birthday month bu the way!!! (yes MONTH!)

  16. I have all sorts of Pinterest outfits saved because I think: "hey, I have something like that in my closet...I could totally do that!" I really need to print them out and hang them up as an inspiration board now that I have a big new closet. I have the GlamGlow as a sample from Sephora and got about 4 uses out of it! I want to go back and ask for another "sample" so I don't have to pay the $70 price tag haha :)

  17. I swear I live off my Sephora samples they always hook it up especially with the perfumes! Panera rewards is the best! Every time I go in there I have a free coffee waiting for me! Don't mind if I do :-)

  20. Jean jackets are the best neutral piece you'll own. That dessert you came up with sounds delish!

  21. Love the outfit! I finally found a good jean jacket too and it looks great with so many outfits. It's already getting so hot though :-/ Well, I suppose it's been colder in the mornings. Is it in OK too? We usually drive up to Grove, OK to see my hubby's grandpa and it's usually noticeably colder there. Your dessert looks great too! I'm a sucker for sweets lately too!
