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.

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.

    Fall is in the Air

    Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. The weather, clothes, boots, food, football, and the list goes on. Every since Hob Lob put out the fall décor this year, I’ve shopped and hoarded fall décor. Finally this weekend I got around to decorating & crafting with a little help from pinterest. Saturday was perfect for Fall decorating. The weather was perfect!


    Is the mum planted in the pumpkin not the cutest thing? You can find the step by step instructions here.


    The wreath could have been a little fluffier but its not to shabby for the first wreath ever made.


    Of course it isnt fall without mums. They are my favorite fall flower!


    fall house

    The inside of my house hasn’t seen much fall décor yet but here is what I’ve gotten so far.


    After all the décor was out, Reid made homeade stew and I whipped up Paula’s Mexican Cornbread. Everything was so yummy. Doesn’t this weather just put you in the best mood?
