What's Up August?

Linking up with Mel, Shay & Sheaffer for...



What we're eating this week...
This week is straight up crazy in our house!
Mic is basically gone 4 out of 5 work nights this week,
so that leaves X and I.
To be honest, when it is just the two of us we end up eating lots of pasta ;)

and we had our fantasy football draft.


What I'm dreading...
Nothing


What I'm working on...
Adding to my earring collection.
I picked up two more pairs from Nickel & Suede,
Camo/Tweed
and I grabbed a couple pairs of tassel ones from Walmart too because I wasn't sure I could commit to the trend. lol!


What I'm excited about...
Football season!
It is my favorite time of year!
High School and NFL have my heart, but I'm game to watch some college games as well :)


What I'm watching/reading...
Mic started watching Game of Thrones and he sucked me in.
We are currently on season 2, so please no spoilers!
We are also watching the Star Wars movies with X from the beginning, so we are on Episode 3 right now.
Other than that, football is back on in our house and I LOVE IT!


What I'm listening to...
Lots of new music on The Highway!
These are my favorites right now...

My bomber jacket (sold out) I picked up from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!
Love that the temps are dropping so I can finally wear it!

And I finally wore this top I ordered as well!
And now I need it in every color!

And all things camo :)

Show & Tell | Best Day Ever

Linking up with Andrea @ Momfessionals for...

What would your best day ever look like and why?

I would wake up to a view of the ocean or gulf.

Enjoy a cup of coffee on the deck as a warm breeze invites me to come down to the beach and enjoy the day.


Take a nap on the beach while I soak in some much needed Vitamin D.

Get an amazing workout in before cleaning up and grabbing an early dinner.

Head out to a sporting event - a football game would be great, but I would settle for any sporting event really.

After the game the night will continue with some dancing and live music, and maybe even some karaoke!

You did say describe my best day right?
I guess that is a little bit more of a dream day ;)

A more realistic best day would still include a really great workout, dinner, and hopefully attending a sporting event with my guys :)

I am learning more and more, that life is too short not to do the things you enjoy and be with the ones you love.

So what would your best day look like?

Kindergarten Has Begun!

Linking up with Andrea, Narci & Erika for...

On Monday Tuesday, I recapped our last weekend of summer fun!
It included receiving my new planner on Friday morning before work :)
Erin Condren planners are my FAVORITE!
Grab my discount code here to order your planner today!

X's FAVORITE ride at the festival,

And my FAVORITE evening activity were included in the weekend recap post as well :)

Kindergarten had a split start this year, so X was able to have a day of fun and learning at one of his FAVORITE spots (his preschool) before starting school the next day.
Of course he had to rock his new FAVORITE shoes!

And the very next morning it was his turn to start!!!
This kid sure is my FAVORITE!!!
I grabbed this free printable for a super easy first day of school gift for his teacher :)

I can't wait to watch him grow and learn this year!

His FAVORITES
Color - Red

Songs - Believer by Imagine Dragons
Ain't My Fault by Brothers Osborne
Craving You by Thomas Rhett & Marin Morris
Rise by Skillet

Foods - Fruit Snacks and Donut Holes

Wants to work with Daddy when he grows up :)






Mic and I picked him up after work and treated him to his FAVORITE Skyline Chili for dinner :)
My FAVORITE part of the day is picking him up from childcare after work and hearing about his day!


With the eclipse happening this week, I found so many FAVORITES on Instagram!





Wednesday I joined those fabulous ladies at The Blended Blog and talked about my FAVORITE print/pattern....


And because I love Instagram, I found more FAVORITES to share with you.











Not gonna lie, this week was a rough one mentally for me.
And believe it or not, it had nothing to do with X starting school!
That was probably the brightest part of my week for sure!
These were my FAVORITE quotes/lyrics/etc that helped me get through things.





And that my friends is it!
This weekend we might hit up the local high school football game tonight, and then we have our fantasy football draft on Sunday.
Eek!
I am so not ready!


What are you doing this weekend?
