Hearts and Darts 12.21.12

My hometown newspaper has a special section called "Hearts and Darts" published each Saturday. Readers can send things in and categorize them as hearts and darts. Hearts are positive things like a group volunteering or a stranger who went out of their way to help someone. Darts are obviously negative things like a neighbor who hit the mailbox and didn't tell or an action that was observed and deemed inappropriate. I will publish my own Hearts and Darts each Friday. I would love for you to 
share your's in the comment section, too!

  • Starting Weight Watchers again- I signed up for WW (again) on Monday and am ready to commit to the program 100% in 2013.
  • Random conversations with strangers- For some reason strangers feel the need to talk to me a lot. This can prove to be creepy at times but sometimes it's sweet. On Wednesday I was walking into CVS and had a man stop me to ask me about my car and tell me a story about how his parents only drove Chevys. It's nice to be able to converse with strangers and leave with a smile on your face.
  • Ugg boots- I found a pair of Ugg's Leland boots for $89.99, tax-free, with free shipping. I am beyond ecstatic  I know Uggs aren't the most fashionable shoes, but they are super comfy and I get my money's worth with them. My only other Ugg boots are a pair of the short, yellow suede ones I found at TJ Maxx in high school. I still wear them six years later.
  • Mini vacation- Steven and I went to Nashville last weekend to catch up on shopping and to the Rockette's perform. Mini vacations with no fur babies are the greatest.
  • Negativity- It's the holidays. Lighten up a little.
  • Driving- Can I hire a personal chauffeur for 2013? I hate driving with a passion.
  • Paleness- I need some sunless tanner in my life but am way too lazy to apply it every few days.
  • Munch- I own a 65 pound pit mix named Munch. His original name was Munchies. Munch loves to munch on stuff. Go figure, right? Good-bye two pairs of glasses, one Hobo wallet, countless pillows, plastic cups, and pens.


  1. Um, amen to mini vacations! Fur babies or real babies, it's nice to get away for a little while.

    What sunless tanner do you use? I swear they all stopped working on me. It's like I'm so pale that they can't help me :)

    1. I like all of L'Oreal's Sublime range. The tinted gel works best for me. I really want to try the St. Tropez mousse due to all the amazing reviews on Sephora but it's so pricey compared to drugstore versions!

  2. I love this idea, it's so cute <3.
