Celebrating: Kiley's birthday! Happy Happy Happy Birthday to my older sister! Here's to making the last year of your thirties the best one yet! 

Working on: decorating for fall. Although we lived in our house last fall, I was so preoccupied with wedding planning and everything wedding-related that I didn't really do much in the way of fall-themed decor. I'm making up for it this year.

Listening to: "Perfect Storm," by Brad Paisley {listen here}'s been a while since I've loved a Brad Paisley song, but I think this one might change that!

Anticipating: the Season 3 premier of "Nashville" week from today!

Smelling: the fabulous fall scent of my newest candle, Sweater Weather, from Bath & Body Works. LOVE it! 

Wishing: I was eligible for a phone upgrade. Guess I'll be waiting until June to own the iPhone 6 because I refuse to pay $550 to get it now. I keep telling myself I've never been an early adopter anyway...but that doesn't seem to be helping!

Wanting: the iPhone 6...duh!

Thanking: my A-MAZing family and friends for making my 33rd birthday perfect! 

Planning: my picks for the office college football pick 'em pool.  As the husband says, "this pool is legit." It's against the spread...AND I have to assign confidence points to each game. 
I won the first week. 
Performed decent the second least well enough to maintain the overall lead.
Last week was a disaster. I tumbled to 7th place.
BUT...I do have documentation to prove my brief reign at the top:
"Rock Chalk" is such a great name for a football pool, right?
Hey...just proving my loyalty to the crimson & blue!
And now I must get back to planning my strategy to claw my way back to first place!


  1. Ah! I've yet to watch Season 2 of Nashville. I started watching it while it aired, but I can't keep up with TV shows on a regular basis, so I added it to my Netflix queue. I guess I'll always be a season behind. :(

  2. So excited for Nashville! Just love that show. I wish it were sweater weather here in Dallas, but then again I will want shorts weather in a few short months.

  3. I can't wait for Nashville to start again, love that show! Can't wait to see your fall decor!

  4. I cannot WAIT for Nashville to come back! Ahhh!

  5. Amen to Nashville!! I'm over here impatiently waiting! I've yet to decorate our house for fall, hoping this weekend. Usually I'm digging things out and carrying tubs from the basement the day after Labor Day, but that wasn't the case this year. Last week I was in Bath and Body and huffed all the fall candles trying to decide. Shockingly, I walked out empty handed... I will return though! Hope all is well with you!

  6. I wish Nashville was on Netflix, I want to start it!

  7. Can't wait for the new season of Nashville.

  8. To say I'm excited for Nashville to return is a total understatement haha! I can't wait!
