I’m Loving the leopard/cardi combo look for a fall fashion trend.

I’m Loving my Maybook Meal Planner notebook. I’ve planned the last few weeks meals and made a grocery list all in one. Very helpful in keeping me accountable as well!

I’m Loving all the “gameday” recipes I’ve found on Pinterest. Can’t wait to try a few dishes next weekend. I recently made the Hot Corn Dip and it was soo delish!

Baby Love

  Hope everyone had a good weekend as I sure did! Nothing to eventful except the fact my bestie had her sweet baby boy Friday evening. She didn't have the easiest time having him but he is here and both are safe & sound. Liam came into this world weighing 7 lbs 9 oz and 21 inches & is the most precious thing ever.


And I can't forget about the birthday boy. We celebrated Reid's 25th birthday for the 2nd time with his family and watching collgege football. It doesnt get much better than that!

Organizing into Fall

For so many months now, I have had a list of small projects I’ve wanted to complete. Somehow I could never find the time though….story of my life. A few weeks ago our little area was some what affected by Hurricane Isaac so it was the perfect time to stay in and ORGANIZE & clean out!  Some may think I’m crazy but the O word gets me so excited.


Project #1: Closet…..cleaned out, bought new bins, put away most of summer clothes & shoes

Can you say Cardi <3??? You do see a whole rack of just cardigans!


Project #2: Storage closet…..I have a huge extra closet in my garage that we recently turned into another closet. My sweets hung shelves and helped me hang all winter light jackets, hoodies, and sweats up. The shelving made even more room for the overflow of boots.

Don’t worry, these arent my only jackets, hoodies, coats, etc. I still have to get those from storage at my moms.

Project #3: Utility room….who am I kidding? I don’t really have a utility room but I do have a space for my washer and dryer with shelves. Basically the only organizing that went on here was putting detergent, dryer sheets, etc into cute bins over the w&d. But hey, at least its organized and has somewhat of color.

Project #4:Front porch……this was more of Reids project than mine, I wont take all the credit. He cleaned out my flower pots, hanging baskets, etc. to get ready for fall mums & plants. I put away some of my summer d├ęcor and put out the Texas A&M flag. Our house is in full football & fall mode.

I have a few more small projects I would love to get done before the holidays so I’m crossing my fingers I’ll find time.

Where I spend most of my day…..

As I said last week, I moved into our new office building. The company I work for grew so much over the last 4 years that they finally decided to merge all of us into one big office. It really is the state of the art office.  So many people I know hate their job or location, and I am so blessed to love my job and live only 2 min from the office. Also, I have some of the best co workers anyone could ask for and have created friendships that will last a lifetime.

Crystal and I showed up to work almost matching….great minds think alike!

Front and back of my desk area…..Now mind you that I’m not through decorating. I am looking for the perfect wall art to go on the wall you see the chairs against in the pic.

This is the view of most of my day. I can see everything that goes on outside in the parking lot. Love it!

Birthday Celebration

Where did the weekend go? This weekend went by faster than any in a while….maybe because time flies when your having fun!
Next Saturday is actually the fiance’s birthday but we will be spending the weekend at home with our families so why not celebrate a wknd earlier with our friends??  We did exactly that. If anyone is familiar with LA & knows about Superior Bar & Grill you know what a good time it is. The drinks are amazing and they are known for the margaritas…yumm!!! Some of my closest friends came out & helped us celebrate Reids birthday.Plus it was just a good excuse to get dressed up and head out on the town. Of course, it would rain but it didn’t stop up. Please see the picture below of my one and only modeling in the rain……

Isn’t he adorbs??
It is very rare that we can all get together so I was very thankful everyone took time to come meet us for dinner. Being a grown up isn’t always fun…..everyone is so busy!

WILW

Whew its been a while since I’ve linked up with Jamie for What I’m Loving Wednesday. There is so much to LOVE right now…..

 

I’m Loving that I found my dream wedding dress this past weekend! I still cant believe it.

(this isnt the actual dress)

I’m Loving the fall weather we are having this week. Every morning it has been a crisp 65 degrees and it cant get much better than that.

I’m Loving that Fall is just right around the corner. When I say I’m itching to start my fall decorating, I am! Hobby Lobby and Pinterest has broke me the last month but at least my house will be presh with fall decor!

I’m Loving all the bauble necklaces right now. I’ve recently purchased 2-pink and black. They are sooo fun to wear and even layer with!

I’m Loving anything Burlap. Burlap wreaths(yes I have one for Fall), flags, runners, etc. Can’t go wrong decorating with Burlap.

I’m Loving my newest Mac Lipglass….color is Nymphette. Now the pic below is a little deceiving bc it really isnt this pink but the frost look is beautiful! It is def worth the purchase.

Fun Filled Weekend

As you can probably see from my latest blogs(yes I know I’ve been MIA), I’ve been so so busy.  So to get back into the blogging mode, I’ll take one project/adventure/weekend at a time. I’ve missed this soo much!

 

One of my favorite things about Fall is football. Whether it be High School football, college, or pro, I love it. My younger sis is a hs cheerleader and it’s a must I go see her perform almost every Friday night. Ok I’m not going to lie, I love it almost as she does & wish so badly I was cheering again. This past Friday I went to the pep rally & football game….I know I’m such a great big sista!

Isn’t she just the cutest little thing? And I may be a little parcel but she is just as sweet too!

 

Saturday was seriously a day I’ve waited for a long time…..Wedding Dress Shopping!!!! I couldn’t sleep the night before I was so excited. I had the best group of girls experience the day with me too! My mom, Nana, Aunt Jan, sisters, and 2 of my bridemaids tagged along. I DID find the dress I went looking for. Now I’m wishing the wedding was only a few months away so I could wear it! Its beautiful and I can’t wait for the rest of the world to see it!

The whole group before I said YES to the Dress! It was everything I had dreamed about since I was a little girl.

 

My company just moved into our brand new gigantic office today so I spent half of yesterday decorating and unpacking my new office. I do probably get to excited about things like this. Once the office is completely decorated, I will post pics!

 

Hope everyone has had a fabulous Monday!
