Thank goodness college football is here......

FIRST....I have huge apologies to the number 2 man in my life....I completely forgot to wish my baby bro a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!! Monday this precious piece of pie turned 22!!!!! Oh my how you have grown up. Davis, you mean the world to me and I am so incredibly thankful that God gave you to me. I am so very proud to call you my brother and my protector. I cannot wait to see what your future holds. The world is your oyster big guy....I love you........

Now, onto why I am excited about football season: for those of you that know me in "real life" are probably baffled by this statement....when I say, thank goodness college football is here, I subliminally mean thank goodness college tailgating is here.....I am notorious for not going into the's hot, there are too many stairs, as soon as I get situated I have to go to the bathroom, I can go on with my reasoning, but I will save you my bitching. I just like to camp out at the spot and hold court there. Every year the hubs and I have this

  • H: "I can't believe you don't want to go in"

  • M: "Why? You won't even miss me! Just text me updates"

  • H: "Just come in for a quarter"

  • M: "How about I just sit here and wait for you?"

  • H: "Arrgghhh!!!"

And there you have it....a recreated scenario from every opening Citadel game....

But on a lighter note, football season means that football is on 24/7 in our house and when football is not on the big screen, then it means my husband is in the woods somewhere trying to shoot something....yes my friends, hunting season is upon us so I have kissed my husband goodbye until New Years Day.....before you start shedding any tears for TCO, let me let you in on how I plan on spending all this newly acquired singledom...reading and catching up on honey do tasks!!!! When the tube is on the pigskin, I get to catch up on all the reading that I didn't get done this Summer, and when the hubs is away, I get to catch up on projects around the house.....this excites me greatly as my list is growing by the minute!!!!!!

First book on the list........

I should be able to knock this one out pretty fast so I need some other ideas....send them my way dear blovies....

First up on the honey do list? The Bug's room....I've got some much much overdo projects for her nursery as we make the (VERY SLOW) transition to a big girl room (tear, tear, tear). I am a few steps ahead of myself here, but I am tackling some artwork that I want to hang, including some by the Bug herself, and I am painting a mini tea table for her since her newest fave activities are drawing and on the list is building some shelving for her (ever expanding) closet, and getting all of her clothes (NB-present) in Rubbermaids and organized by season and size.

I'm already exhausted reading my list.....but I am super excited about knocking out some projects around the house!

AND our anniversary is coming up in 12 days!!!!! I've already got Daddyo's gift ordered! I am on the ball this year!!!


  1. Our husbands sound very much alike. Football rules our house the entire season and if Steven isn't watching a game or at a game, he's in a deer stand.

    Let me know what you think of the book. I read it and it surprisingly wasn't one of my favorites. I generally love all of her writings - but this just didn't do it for me for some reason.

  2. I still think your brother is cute, lol!!

  3. Happy belated birthday to your brother!

    This summer I read Chasing Harry Winston, which was great! I'd also recommend any other Emily Giffin novels (Love the One You're With is one of my favorite books of all time!) and The Choice by Nicholas Sparks.

    Good luck with your to-do list!

  4. Haha, I love going into the games and getting pumped up with the band and all that. Happy Bday to your bro!

  5. I haven't read that book yet! I've been reading the Lemony Snickett Series...yes I just admitted that. But, I love those books! Ha!

  6. Oh gosh! Cleaning out the lil's closet always makes me cry! I always remember the days when she was smaller and it makes me sad. But then again each stage is fun in it's own way! We've been cleaning out too. Feels good to be getting organized!

  7. Happy Anniversary! I am so with you on being grateful for football season. I never understand all my friends that complain about their husbands wanting to watch football all weekend. I am right there with him for a couple games on Saturday, but the rest of the weekend, I am able to catch up on blogs, file away recipes, fold clothes, read magazines...& most of the time my toddler is content to color on the floor in front of the games her daddy is watching. Win win all the way around! =)

    BTW, I tagged you in my post this afternoon! =)

  8. What a cute blog & brother you have! Haha, if he's single, send him my way. ;]


what are you observing these days????
