Here's My Picture-Heavy Explanation

…did you think I had disappeared off the face of this Earth? 

I’ll spare you my excuses.

Let’s get right down to business.

The last you heard from me was over 10 days ago.

Since then ….

I went to Clemson for the Auburn game.  

We had an awesome win & the stadium was crazy!

The morning was pretty cold, so I got my first pumpkin-spice latte of the season! YUM.

…so that was the weekend before this past weekend.
(just making sure you’re up to speed)

This week was very busy with work happenings, so I knew that a relaxing weekend was much needed.

I did have a free night, though, & got a chance to have dinner & drinks with my lovely roommate on Wednesday at O-ku. 

This isn’t a romper, but a black sleeveless top tucked into a pair of dressy shorts from Express.  I paired it with a Banana Republic scarf & Jessica Simpson nude heels.

So, on Friday, Brandon and I decided to drive home to our high school alma-mater for the Homecoming football game.  We even took off work early to make it in time for the pep rally! 

I cheered for our high school & Brandon was on the football team.  So when the pep rallies would come along on Friday afternoons, we thought they were the biggest, most important events ever.  

Now that we’re obviously older, and, well, sitting in the parents section of the pep rally crowd, we just laugh at how cute these, once-so-important events really are.  

Time has truly flown in a heart-beat. 


Later that Friday evening, before the football game, Brandon gave me this beauty


I have had my eye on this watch for a while now & am just in love with it! 

It’s very classic & chic, if I do say so myself.

I’m too embarrassed to tell you how late I slept in on Saturday, but let’s just say that this little gal needed the rest.  I’ve been craving a sleep-in day for months! We are always on the go, so it was nice to sleep in & spend a day with my family.  

Here are some pictures of my mom, dad, Brandon, and me on Dad’s newest toy.

Mom & Dad

Saturday night consisted of a church dinner & football-watching.
Clemson beat Florida State, so I became a happy girl!

Moving right along to Sunday…

…when I finally got a chance to view my latest obsessions via online shopping.
(I’ve been deprived of online shopping this week since I’ve been so busy.)

I’m so excited to share my Fall picks with you dolls! 

But, you’ll just have to wait until tomorrow to find out what they are!

Here’s to more frequent blogging for me & a happy, healthy week for all!

    Your new watch is a beauty! I so need a new watch. The ratio of hubs watches to mine is about 4 to 1! Also, this is random, but…what color is the nail polish you're wearing (in the pic holding the PSL)? I LOVE it! Hope you'll email me and tell me so I can be a nail polish stealer, haha 🙂
