Eeekk It's Bachelor Season

 Its Monday my friends.....which means Bachelor season is back! Who is already obsessed with this seasons Bachelor??? This girl is no doubt! Some of my favorite things about the show, besides laughing at all the crazy girls, is seeing all the cute outfits, different personalities, and all the fun adventures that go on. I have a feeling this will be a fun, yet entertaining season. 

Even though some of the girls are just absolutely redic on the show, I do remember feeling exactly how they just described. And no I don't mean crazy either. There are so many beautiful women with different careers, different cities, but all with one thing missing in their lives....LOVE. Maybe I'm more sensitive to this now that I've found the love of my life but I cant help but feel their pain. I so remember wondering why I couldn't find the "One", why I wasn't pretty enough, & what was I missing that every other woman had? Just listening to the women on TV tonight sound so desperate, but sadly every single woman at one time or another wonder these things. Whether we are 21, 26, or 32, every one of us long to be loved, a wife, and a mommy at some point. That dream never goes away.....So with that said, I hope each and every one of those women find the love that I have found.

Here are my 3 fav bachelorettes:

 Lesley-Southern Belle...Enough Said!
 Tierra-Seems like she is full of life!
Ashlee-TX girl & the most genuine.
Who is your favorite ladies of the season???

Why put the flower pot away when you can use it year round?



Oh Christmas Tree!


While I don’t have a fireplace for Santa to come down, this does the job just fine and dandy.



The pillow says it all…..



I love all of the “Yall” sayings being I’m a TX girl.



Cone trees can fancy anything up!



Holly Nog anyone?



I love all the Southern Living Christmas Cookbooks.


Well that is all I could fit into my 900 sq ft townhouse. What fun decorations did you all put out?

Week Late Weekend Photo Dump…

I’ve never been known to be a timely person so please give me a break here. I couldn’t resist sharing my weekend photos from last weekend. I sure don’t have any from this weekend being I was sick all weekend :(


Reid and I journied down to one of the prettiest places in TX….San Antonio. Why you may ask? For some crazy reason, I signed up for the 1/2 marathon relay. Now that its all over with I can say I’m glad I participated but if you were to ask me during mile  10 I would’ve said different. We enjoyed the weekend with lots of good food, sight seeing, shopping, and of course some running.

Because I did finish the race, Reid took me to dinner at the Towers of America which over looked San Antonio! It was beautiful!

Monday we headed home but before ended our trip I spotted a sign that read “Smithville 12 miles” Now if anyone is a Hope Floats movie lover, you know what I’m talking about. There was no question about whether we were going to detour or not….of course we did! And at that point, I knew Reid was a keeper. He made me the happiest girl ever! Ok so I’m a little obsessed with Justin Matice and Birdee…..


Reid & I1


What did your weekend consist of?

Football & Friends

If you have a man in your life or better yet living in the same house and you, I’m sure you can relate to my weekend. Actually its every weekend for that matter. I’m now spitting out stats and names of players like a pro!

My fiance basically drug me out of bed to get dressed and get ready to meet his friends and some family for lunch and to watch football that started at 11 am. Really??? I honestly didn’t mind a bit because it was some friends that we don’t get to see a lot so it was def fun times. Some of the girls and I even left for a bit to shop at Ulta. Win Win for everyone! Later that afternoon we headed out to tailgate for the Texas A&M v. La Tech game that was played in our very own Shreveport, LA.

game 3

We tailgated with friends, co workers, and I even met a new blog friend. I met the sweetest lady through Reid’s co worker & we hit it off immediately. Somehow we got to talking about blogs and we read a lot of the same ones. Now we are followers of each other. Its so neat because I’ve never met an actual blog friend. Check out Leslie's blog sometime.



game 1                             game 2

The night was fun but pray we don’t attend a college football game that starts at 8pm ever again. I need a lot of rest after this weekend.
