Friday Favorites Week #44

Friday, October 30, 2020

Happy Friday!
Linking up with Andrea and Erika again today :)

Earlier this week a friend shared this and I just loved it 💜

On Friday, we headed southwest to Dayton, Ohio for a weekend of soccer.
Our first stop was Smokey Bones for some yummy BBQ!

We were up pretty early Saturday morning and ready for the cold and games ahead of us.

Unfortunately, the games didn't go our way on Saturday :(
But we still had a fun dinner out with a couple of teammates and parents :)

Up and ready to go for an afternoon game on Sunday.
I was multi-tasking trying to watch the end of the Cleveland Browns game while X was playing ;)
Good news...both teams won!!!

And this is what happens when you have 11 sets of parents all trying to take a pic of the team at the same time. 🤣

In other news....

On #TheRealBuild this week we discussed our pantries!
You can head to my highlights on Instagram to check out our plans for our pantry, the dimensions, and see all the pantries of the other ladies :)

I shared my monthly feels on Monday :)

And I linked up with Sheaffer and Shay for What's Up Wednesday!

X's flag football team played for the championship on Wednesday night, but unfortunately came up short in the end.
We are so proud of how X played this season, and thankful they were able to have a season :)

This is completely off the wall, but I looked down yesterday and the odometer on my car said....

Beverly Hills 90210 was and still is one of my favorite shows of all time!
I never missed an episode in the 10 years the show was on!
And that is a true accomplishment since we didn't have DVR, OnDemand, or YouTube back then! ;)

One more thing before I go...

X is having his class Halloween party today and I won't be able to go :(
No parents are allowed in the school this year due to Covid.
This is the first time I have ever missed a class party for him.
So we quickly snapped a pic before school in his Reaper costume together :)

And that is it for this week!
We have another weekend full of soccer in the cold.
Wish me luck that I don't freeze!

Have a great weekend friends!

XOXO ~ Vanessa

What I'm loving...
#TheRealBuild ladies!

While we came together because we are all building homes, the friendship we have formed has been more amazing than I can explain :)

What we've been up to...
Soccer and football practices and games on repeat!

What I'm dreading...
I'm ever so slightly dreading moving.

But honestly, I'm so excited to move back into our house that the process won't be as terrible as previous moves ;)

What I'm working on...
Wrapping my head around the idea that our house is almost done! lol!
It has been 2 1/2 half loooooooong years!
It doesn't feel real that our house is almost done!

What I'm excited about...
The holidays!
🤞 we will be in our new home enjoying all that Thanksgiving & Christmas have to offer :)

What I'm watching/reading...
We are still loving Downton Abbey!
Finishing up season 4 very soon :)

The only reality show I can handle is Dancing with the Stars.
I just love dancing in general so it makes it easy to watch and not get caught up in any drama ;)
While I am cheering for Nelly and AJ, Nev is amazing!!!

And I can't get enough football these days!
When I'm not at one of X's games on the weekend, you will find me watching all the college and NFL games!

Those smiles are because my Browns are 5-2!!!!

What I'm listening to...
Christmas music!
I just couldn't wait any longer!
From Spotify to YouTube, I'm listening to it all!

What I'm wearing...
Boots and sweaters!
And I love every minute of it! :)

What I'm doing this weekend...
Another soccer tournament, but thankfully it is local this time!

What I'm looking forward to next month...
I mentioned this the other day, but I'm hoping we will be moving back into our house!!!

Soccer and football season are also coming to a close for X, so hopefully we will have time to start making our house a home :)

What else is new...
We finally hung out with friends we haven't seen in months!
If felt so good!

And we celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary :)

And that is it for the month of October!

XOXO ~ Vanessa

The Feels | October

Monday, October 26, 2020

It's time for The Feels for October!

Favorite Meal?
The yummy hibachi steak meal I had at Wokano for a quick anniversary celebration with Mic.
So good!

Favorite Movie/TV Show/Book?
If I have to pick just one, I will go with Downton Abbey.
I can't believe I enjoy it as much as I do!
I am currently making my way through season 4 :)

Favorite Activity?
Watching X play football and soccer this past month.
He has really come into his own and it sure is fun to watch!

Favorite Moment?
Getting to take X to his first overnight soccer tourney this past weekend.
While it was cold, and the outcome wasn't what we would have sure was fun!
I love getting to get away from normal life for a bit and that is exactly what this past weekend did for us :)

Goal for November?
Fingers crossed....move back into our house!!!!!
It has been two and half long years, and we are more than ready to be back in a house and living our lives again.

Anything Else That Made October Feel Good?
The Cleveland Browns are killin' it!
They are 5-2!!!
It has been a long time since I could be happy on Sundays ;)

Now it's your turn!

Friday Favorites Week #43

Friday, October 23, 2020

Hello there!
Did you miss me this week?
I had every intention of posting all this week, but life and work just got in the way.
I do have a few posts planned for next week, so things should feel more normal.

I am least popping on here to share my favorites from this past week.
Linking up with Andrea and Erika :)

Here is a sneak peek of what was installed at the house last Friday...

Eek! I'm so excited!!!

The rest of the weekend had us at soccer games!

As we get closer to the finish line for the house more things are being installed.
Doors and handles, faucets, etc.

I can't wait to see it finally come together very soon!

This week was an odd one since school was cancelled on Tuesday due to positive Covid tests.
We made it a half day at the office for X and I :)

Wednesday was back to school and the first day of 3rd grade testing.
Followed by X playing an amazing game on Wednesday evening.
His team won their game and are headed to the championship next week!

And yes, it was really that dark!

And that is it for this week!
We have a full weekend of soccer once again :)

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

XOXO ~ Vanessa
