True life: I haven't had the initiative to blog lately, but I will make your Tuesday even brighter by some updates.
1. #Majorfail in not documenting the doggies at Alabama's homecoming parade this last weekend. I was a little overwhelmed with all the people blinding my babies with their cameras. What can I say, I have some stud-like pups.
You may or may not see them on some random Web site one day as a result of some creepers and the technology of camera phones.
2. I will, however, come back with some Halloween photos tomorrow. Pinkie promise! Here is last year's documentation:
3. My Christmas cards are being delivered today! High five for starting early!
4. I am starting to run again. Let's see how long this lasts... probably until the next time I am surrounded by a bunch of skinny college girls (oh that is next weekend and two weeks after that, and a week after that...).
Guess who is rocking his belly shirt jersey this weekend? Um Winston!
Guess who is not rocking her new cheerleading Halloween costume? Um Winnie! (she has a problem keeping the skirt on)
I will come back next week with plenty of bullies and Bama! In the meantime, say a prayer that our Mississippi State mascot-looking furbabies and their parents survive their first weekend back in Tuscaloosa after 2.5 years.
This second year has been even more fun than the first (in my opinion). We got another fur baby, bought a house, witnessed so many beautiful weddings and saw great friends become parents... and we did this all right by each other's side. There were both bad and good days, but each of those days got us to where we are today.
The hubs and I spent the last few days relaxing, relaxing and a little more relaxing in Vail, Colorado, to celebrate our two year anniversary (which is tomorrow). The property was amazing and perfect for the two of us! I snagged it for a great deal too!
I love a good gift shop. The one where you can always find a great last minute hostess gift for a party or gathering. Since I usually stay in my Atlanta bubble, lucky for me Swoozies is just down the road. I feel like an old friend of this pink and orange branded store because the Birmingham location has been around for a while. Here are a few cuties:
I have a few favorites that I have been loving lately that I want to share:
I love a good planner and I think I have found the perfect one. I needed one that spanned 2012-2013 for all my upcoming work events. This one has the perfect tabs and broken-out days, so I can use it for both my personal and professional calendar. It is the perfect planner and a great addition to any upcoming Christmas list.
Every so often I peruse the Juniors section in search of a good find..and a find that has more than a seven inch skirt! Nordstrom did not disappoint in the shirt department. I bought three of these pretties because they fit perfectly. Love!
I have been obsessed with lavender for a while. What did we use at our wedding when we couldn't do sparklers, lavender? What kind of candle do I stockpile, lavender? And every soap dispenser contains some brand of lavender soap. I am eying this live plant just to have a little more in the house
