She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not: Name 5 Things

So sorry for my lack of posting was so weird to not post, actually. #obsessedblogger
I was so overly tired from our 4th of July I couldn't even compose a post when I got home. But I've got the total recap coming for you tomorrow!

Today is Wednesday, so we have another one of my fave bloggers here to share her loves and loves me nots!  Welcome Emily, the talent behind name 5 things:
She is stylish, loves good deals and made the BEST chevron bulletin boards {I think after I saw those I was off-the-deep-end-in-love with chevron} I love her and you're about to also! Take it away sweet Emily...
Hi everyone!  I'm Emily from name 5 things.  I was thrilled when Michaela asked me to be a part of her awesome She Love Me, She Loves Me Not series.  Michaela has to be one of the sweetest bloggers out there and is always a constant source of inspiration when it comes to decorating and clothes.


(1) Kerastase Double Force Hairspray.  This stuff is pricey, but it has the perfect amount of hold for keeping my side-swept bangs in place all day (even in the Texas heat and humidity).  After trying countless drugstore brands and being disappointed, I decided to bite the bullet and haven't looked back since!    

(2) An upcoming 2-week vacation to France, Italy, and Greece.  My husband and I are counting down the days until we get to leave work behind (see She Loves Me Not #2 below) and relax in some of the most beautiful places.

(3) My precious dogs, Riley and Zoey.  They are both Welsh Terriers and are the cutest things, if I do say so myself.  I am sure they would get along fabulously with Michaela's dog Shasta.    

(4) Banana Republic's upcoming Mad Men inspired collection.  I haven't been digging the selection at BR recently, but since I love all things Mad Men, I am hoping the new collection will be a winner.  From what I've seen so far, I am loving it.


(1) Sam Edelman Gigi Sandals.  I would love a pair of these sandals, but I guess my size is popular because they are sold out everywhere.  I am stalking Zappos and Nordstrom in hopes they will get more in stock soon!

(2) My current work schedule.  I love my job, but we are getting ready for a massive trial and things are pretty much non-stop.  I am ready for the trial to be over and for my schedule to get back to normal (and to catch up on some major overdue blog reading/commenting!).    

(3)  Early mornings.  I am not a morning person -- at all.  Thank goodness for the snooze button (although, I'm fairly certain they didn't intend for you to hit it 10 times before actually getting up)! 

Thanks again Michaela for letting me post over here today!

Thanks, Emily! I totally do the snooze thing...Who else is with us?? Zoey and Riley are so darn cute. Shasta says she'd like a play date (;
What are you loving this week??

Go pay name 5 things a visit!
Back tomorrow with a 4th of July recap.
