Ten Things Tuesday - Random Thoughts

Today, I'm linking up with the lovely Lena at Mom to Memphis And Ruby for Ten Things Tuesday! Only, when I decided to link up, I didn't realize she started doing themes for Ten Things.  If you're here to see what's in my purse, I'm sorry to disappoint, =/  If you really want to know, you can read this post that I did a while back.  Okay, back to ten things that are on my mind at the moment.

1.  Allergies...  Who knew such a little thing could wreak such havoc upon one's life?  I certainly didn't! I've been sick for three weeks now and went to the doctor yesterday hoping for an antibiotic cocktail and strict instructions to hop into bed for three days. Is that what I heard? I most certainly did not. Apparently, I have allergies and I have to learn to manage them and live with it.

2.  It seems that spring has arrived!  I guess it kind of goes hand in hand with allergies. ;) But I'm loving the weather we've been having here in the panhandle of Florida. Cool and crisp in the morning. Warm and sunny in the afternoon. Aaah, it's my kind of weather!

3.  I scored a major deal at the thrift store recently!  I had been eyeing this Jeanology denim blazer for months, but with a price tag of $12, I just wasn't feeling it.  Last week, I happened into the thrift store and they were having a 75% off sale on all of their sweaters and jackets!  This little beauty went home with me for $3.00!!  Check it out below. =)

Denim Blazer: Jeanology, Thrifted ($3!)
Tunic Dress: Old Navy, Thrifted ($5)
Leggings: Target ($20)
Shoes: rsvp, 6pm.com ($6.95)

4.  I really, completely and totally, love teaching.  I just hope I can get a job in the fall. If I do, I can guarantee you, I won't miss being a paralegal!

Belt: Aldo ($3)
Necklace: Target ($15)
Rings: c/o Blue Vanilla and My Sister

5.  If everything goes according to plan and the weather cooperates, we just might make it to the beach this weekend. My kids adore the beach!

6.  I watched the Hubs run the New Orleans marathon in person for the first time this weekend and it was absolutely inspiring!!  I got to catch him at Mile 9, Miles 17 and 18 and then at the Finish Line.  I really want to run a marathon myself someday!!

7.  The Hubs finished with a time of 3:55! Is that insane or what??? 

8.  My Little Guy got his own medal this weekend, too, when he ran in the Kids Fun Run.  He did the 1/2 mile and absolutely loved it!

9.  I was just told on the phone that my name isn't all that common. Huh. She even asked me how to spell it. I had no idea Tiffany was such an exotic name. <insert sarcasm> lol

10.  Do you know how hard it is to come up with ten things??  Try it!! Thank goodness, I remembered the marathon this weekend or I would have been stuck at number 5! =)

I hope you are all having a fabulous week and avoiding any and all things allergy related!  Seriously, allergies are no fun at all!

As well as linking up with Lena, I'm also linking up my fierce style with the lovely ladies at Monday Mingle!

I did a variation on this week's 10 things theme as well based around packing to go away cause that's what was on my mind more than anything else!

Congrats to your hubby on his run. Cute outfit and great deals! Hope you can manage your allergies...zyrtec helps a lot, but makes you sleepy. I go for shots.

Callie said...

This is such a fun post to read! Congratulations to your husband for running a marathon - it's been on my bucket list for years. And congratulations to you for another adorable outfit! The bright colors really have me itching for spring. It's been raining and snowing in my corner of the world and spring is sounding really great right now - allergies included!

LOL Tiff! I go through the same mental block. Like you want me to think of 15 things? Let's make a deal and I come up with 5. HaHa Girl, I started suffering from allergies a couple of years ago. It is no fun! More and more people are going through this dilemma. SO sorry I missed you here in nola. Many weekends I'm in Mississippi (job). Your hubby did FAB! What an accomplishment and the weather looked great. I was reading your comment and couldn't agree more. I have better friends through blogs than in real life! HAHAHA I love it. I have my moments, but overall I truly love it. I appreciate people like you. Thank you girl! ((HUG))

Love the new jacket! Sorry about the allergies. They really do suck, and it's worse if you live somewhere with bad allergens. I used to live in Georgia and was allergic to pine trees (if you know anything about the area - this is hilarious). I survived on Benadryl.

Thanks for joining us for Stripes Week!

Loving your outfit - I want to steal those shoes every time you wear them! My hubs is running a marathon (his first) next month... training like a mad man over here. (While I sit on the couch and drink wine.)

How awesome about the marathon! Love that you paired yellow and teal together, so cute!

Running a marathon is on my "bucket list" for life sometime too...though maybe I should start with a 5K, ha!

Salena @ A Little Piece of Me said...

You're so cute, I love your outfit! Especially the tunic and the shoes. I love the blazer with it too. Congratulations to your husband and your son! Thanks for linking up to Tuesday 10!

Glad you love teaching and I hope you get a job doing that! I'm starting to wonder if I should go back to teaching...

Tinfoil Tiaras said...

Oh my goodness- I am so jealous of your spring outfit- my Mum is headed to Florida for vacay next week and I wish she could pack me in her suitcase! I am loving your blue heels and denim jacket (score!) Congrats to your hubby on the marathon- now that's impressive!

Allergies stink. Your hubby rocks (great time!) and you look adorable through it all!
