Welp! I'm on a Break!!!

Dear Fall Breeeeak,
Thank the good Lord above you are finally here! 

So yesterday,
I was too excited over the fact that it's FALL BREAK to do any homework.. so naturally, I did Sydney @ The Daybook's tutorial on her fabulous Bun. 
Hello new favorite thing.

It's super easy.. so you should go try it yourself.
and did I mention, I'm in love with my new sequin top from express CLEARANCE. #hollabackgirl

I've been lusting over sequins and their flashy amazing selves for quite some time... and this tank was on clearance this week. Don't ask me twice. ;)

Well ladies, I'm headed down to the coast for GA/FL this weekend. Words can't even begin to describe how excited I am at this given moment. :) :) :) 

So I'll catch you on the flip side!!
plus, that's more than enough old school mirror pic'ing for one post.
Peace and Blessings,

Tragedy Struck.

I had every intention of blogging last week...
and then tragedy struck.
Picture this: I'm sitting at my kitchen table listening to music, I reach for my brownie I'm devouring and my drink knocks over. I reach to catch it, the catch is successful.. but my drink sloshes out right onto my macbook pro keyboard. FREAK!

So I calmly wipe it off quickly. 
Seriously, there was NOT that much liquid that actually got on it. Everything was working fine, I shut it off and headed to bed.. and just totally forgot about it.

Next morning,
I wake up, check my email... everything is working wonderfully. Before I know it, my O key quit typing.. and then my P. (Greeeeat) So I couldn't even GOOGLE how to fix my situation.

Well I turned my computer upside down, left for class.. prayed it would be better when I got back. Guess what friends... it wasn't.

So headed to peachmac and as I'm there the trackpad quits working and more keys go out. JUST MY LUCK. 

But $423 later, I'm back up and running.
Talk about flushing money down the toilet. 

I won't be drinking any beverages near my computer ANY time soon.

  So anyways.. I never got to share with you the pictures from my sweet little sister's cheerleading competition last week! 

We were so proud of our cheerleader!
 look at her killer facials ;)

Hope you guys are having a WONDERFUL tuesday...
and make sure you check out my guest post over at Nicole's lovely blog for her "Lessons Learned" Series ;)

Woah I feel Old.

Last Friday night was the Homecoming Football game at my Alma Mater.
My hometown is pretty small.. so Homecoming Football games are a community event. Since my friend Elise's little sister was on Court, along with some other girls we know, we headed to the game to show our support.

Y'all. I felt SO dang OLD. I swear I didn't look that little when I was in high school.. just saying. Those kids are so tiny!

 The dresses that are in style right now are blowing my mind with all of the sparkly, flashy, blingy sequins. I want to go dress shopping. 
 The game was pretty boring, seeing as how the school hasn't won a football game since I was like a sophomore or junior in HS basically.. and that was years ago. 
BUT, we got to hang out with people we hadn't seen in a while so that was fun!

Us with Elise's beautiful sister:

 and the next day was the Homecoming dance so I got to see my sister off with her cute date ;)
 Call me crazy, but I miss homecoming days! I loved getting all dressed up for dances.. and the butterflies while you wait for your date to come pick you up!
okay last one...
hope y'alls week is off to a great start! I'm crossing my fingers I have time to blog this week. My life needs to SLOOOOOOW it. DOWWWWWN. because this is not working for me. ;)

I'm linking up with Jamie to share what I'm loving today!
 Today I'm loving...
That I actually have a chance to blog. Holy cow.. I have had ZERO free time lately it feels like.. so I'm loving that I won't have another test for a few weeks. 
I have become obsessed with candles lately.. and I stopped in Bath and Body Works and got the Leaves candle the other day #love. 
 plus, the candle sleeve was 50% off... even better!

I've been in a major cooking mood lately. For a while there I only ate sandwiches every day.. and went out to eat TOO much. So this week I stocked up on WAY too many groceries.. and have been cooking every night. :) I LOVE home-cooked meals. Especially since it's been rainy and cold.
Sunday night I made Paula Deen's Skillet Spaghetti Squash.. I had never had spaghetti squash before and it was so interesting! I love it! Definitely making it again.
the color on that picture looks terrible.. I promise it looked way tastier in person ;)

I'm loving that 2418098 cups of tea and honey later.. my voice is back!!! I woke up Monday morning and literally, my voice went away over night. No sore throat.. no runny nose.. nothing. It was just gone. So weird.. but it's back! 
  So now let's hear what YOU are loving today.. go link up with Jamie and share!

Go Dawgs!

Saturday was Game Day in Athens!
and Game Days make my heart so very happy. 
Getting dressed in red and black to cheer on the Dawgs is the perfect way to spend a Saturday with friends.

Ally and I headed out for the Miss. State game and met up with our blogger turned real life friends: Jessica and Jamie to tailgate!

The weather was chilly that morning.. but once we got inside the stadium it was PERFECT. We couldn't have asked for a better day Between the Hedges.
and I got to rock my red cowboy boots ;)
During the game Hairy Dawg (The mascot) crowd surfed through the student section.. and it was just our luck  that he came right through where we were standing. Like WE could lift him up through the bleachers.. Ally went running away as soon as he came.. and luckily some guys came and hoisted him up. It was hilarious!
It was a great game! The Dawgs pulled out a win and we all went home happy! (and exhausted!)

Until Next Time,
