Well hello, friends! I have officially crawled out of my
hole that I've been hibernating in for the past couple of weeks. Please accept
this apology, if in fact, you actually thought about stopping by this wee
For the past week the Mr. and I have been plum sick and
gross. Last Monday I came home from work early and slept for about 14 hours
with only a little break for a grilled cheese at dinner. I had aches and coughs
and sneezes and snots and…well…you get the picture. I was not feeling my best
by any means. Being the ever so gracious wife that I am, I passed on my sickness
onto my hubs and even to my dad!
Luckily today I can breathe out of my nose pretty well. Holla!
Slowly but surely, right?!
Above are a few of my essentials for those days when you
feel like a box of tissues and a blanket are your ever present friends.
I hope this post find you well....literally...I hope you're not sick :)
I am currently in the living room of my grandparents home visiting while my grandfather recovers from a major surgery and UT v GA game is on. Its quite apparent that this living room audience is captivated. I've never been much for watching sports but Adam loves it and frankly, I enjoy watching his reactions to the plays.
On Thursday evening we made a last minute decision to make the drive down to Mobile, Al, where I am originally from, to help my grandfather and my grandmother out.
The beauty of being down here meant that this morning we woke up to the sun rising over the Mobile Bay and later took a walk down the beach.
It has been a really nice time and my grandfather is recovering really well. Yay!
I hope that this October weekend has treated you well and I will follow up with you shortly.
Every week I receive a couple of emails from J. Crew Factory letting me know of the great deals they have going on in store and online. If you are a fan of J.Crew but not their price point, check out J. Crew Factory's website and sign up for their emails. I have purchased ties and sunglasses for Adam and was happy that I only paid $5 for shipping. Today's email was for their jewelry that is 40% off. Immediately I jumped online and purchased the necklace noted above. So cute, right?! Their necklaces typically go for $70 but I purchased mine for $20. Those earrings on the right are only $11! Essentially, this is a steal and, well, go get you some! If not for yourself, think of the holidays coming up or maybe your girlfriends birthday :) Side note: They're totally not paying or gifting me anything to write about this sale, I'm just a girl who loves to look cute and get a great deal. Holla! Check out the jewelry HERE. Happy bargain hunting! I'll talk to you soon....
Fall is my favorite time of year. I do so much better in cooler weather than I ever do in the heat and some of my favorite records of all time are only meant for the fall.
*Ray Lamontage, Iron & Wine, the Avett Brothers, Sea Wolf, Agnes Obel, etc.*
I had a conversation with a friend last week and we spoke about seasonal music.
She didn't quite get me...
Is it just me or do you think about how some artists tend to release their records during a particular time of the year. It's like they are aware that their music is meant to be listened to while driving through falling leaves and crisp air. Its like they are setting the mood.
Same goes for The Strokes, they are totally summer music. They're not February music to me. Does anyone else feel like that?
Ah- whatever the case may be, I hope you enjoy this little playlist of mine that I've curated.
