Anyone else glad it's Friday?? I sure am. I'm heading home today after work. Home is where the heart is & my heart will ALWAYS be in my sweet hometown, nestled in the mountains.

Ahh yes, the mountains, clean air, & yummy water is a beautiful thing when you live in the "city."

BUT, what I'm looking forward to the most is cuddling my sweet baby niece all.weekend.long.  Hehe. I also plan on baking with my momma. And I  know this isn't considered, "baking" but how GOOD does this look?!?!

I saw this picture of Reese Witherspoon on Pinterest & thought I  would share. I love her, & this picture screams, "I love winter!!" and that I do!

I hope all of y'all have a relaxing weekend! :)

What I'm Loving Wednesday

Happy Wednesday, sweet girlies! I thought I would link up with Jaime & tell her what I'm loving today. :)
I'm loving... that my lovehead had a great birthday yesterday! Well, at least I hope he did. I surprised him & his twin brother with a rather large breakfast I cooked alllll by myself, a homemade banner, & balloons. :) That night we all (their friends) went out to dinner at a new Italian place, which was delish!

{Precious. My babe is on the right}

I'm loving... that we are up to no good, & planning our Riudoso trip with family & friends in November! Yay for skiing, eating, & fun times! Last year was a BLAST with a capital B!

I'm loving... Monday night prayer, & coffee dates with my BFF, Lauren. I seriously love this girl like a sister & I am so blessed to have her in my life. Like she said, we literally tell each other every.single.detail of our lives to each other. :) She is one of the greatest & most wonderful friends I've ever had.

{This is so us}
I'm loving... my Pinterest finds this week. :)

{Definitely going to start checking this list off}

And finally, I'm loving... that my sweet baby niece is doing so wonderful. My sister is also doing great. Thank you, Lord!

That's all I've got this week! :)

I'm here, to catch you up.
But first. Do you like ketchup?? I do. I LOVE it. One of my BFF's Lauren, hates it. Can you beeeeeeee-lieve that?! She also hates ranch dressing. Ay yi yi. Love ya honeybun! :)

Moving on....

So besides cooing over my precious baby niece, I've been doing lots, well kind of. :) Thank you all for your sweet comments, I'm so in love with her.
I've been baking up a storm. I made strawberry/fall cupcakes last week. Last night I made pumpkin cupcakes, errr more like muffins. I found this super easy recipe on Pinterest, but had to add 2 eggs, & some milk.

I've been spending my entire Sonic drink budget on Starbucks lattes, & I'm OKAY with that. ;)

I'm been doing a little Fall shoppin' which is always a favorite of mine. Hehe.
Oh my goodness! Before I forget, I found these little balls of goodness at Target at one of my many trips, & they are awesome. They make my clothes Ellie even thinks so.

Have I mentioned coffee is good?

The fair is here in town & I cannot wait to go! The best part if the food ACOURSE!

I've been scheming & planning for my loveheads birthday TOMORROW! I love birthdays, do you?

I can't wait for prayer tonight to worship my Jesus!! Sometimes I get overwhelmed by HOW MUCH HE LOVES US. It's amazing. HE is amazing, & forgiving & loving & He is ours, WE ARE HIS. I find comfort in that.

Happy Random Monday! :)

My niece is finally here!! She is absolutely precious, & I LOVE HER SO MUCH. She's the first baby (niece, grand baby) of our family so we are over the moon about this little bundle. They named her Adalee (ADD-UH-LEE) Paige.

She arrived at 1:38am on Thursday, weighing in at 7lbs, 9 oz. They got home yesterday & are doing wonderful. Things have been crazy but I'm hoping to get caught up on here very soon!

My grandpa cried. Only 3rd time in my life I've ever seen this man shed a tear.

Another great weekend post. I know these probably get boring but this is totally for me - I can't wait to look back one day & remember all the fun things we did. I am blessed & I never take it for granted!

We had more visitors this weekend & I love it. My lovers sister in law & brother came in Saturday afternoon to spend the rest of the weekend with us. Their anniversary was on Sunday & I was thrilled when they wanted to spend it with us! We were in their wedding, & I love them to pieces.

Before they got here though, I accomplished some fun things! I started my apple butter Saturday morning & it turned out DELICIOUS!!! Everyone was super proud of me because we all know I'm not the best cook. It's super easy to make, I suggest y'all try it - makes for a great little Christmas present!

I also made a trip to Hobby Lobby to make this wreath. I think it turned out great, & again was super easy/cheap to make. Everything was half off, so I spend around $26 on the materials for it.

That night, we decided to go dancing! This is one of our all time favorite things to do with them. We always have SO MUCH FUN! This girl & I just "click." We laugh SO hard when we're together. I can talk to her about ANYTHING, literally anything. She has ALWAYS been there for me, & I'll always be there for her. I cannot wait to call her my sister in law one very special day!

This quote reminds me of our friendship

Us girls decided we needed some retail therapy on Sunday because by golly, we deserved it after watching I bought me some brown riding boots & I can't wait to wear them!! Fall clothes make this girl HAPPY. :) Foever 21 had some CUTE stuff, y'all.

They left after the Cowboys game on Sunday & I was so sad to see them go. It was a wonderful weekend, but 6am came a little too early this morning, even for my pup-girls! :) hehe.

Just Some Things

TGIF!! :)

First off, here in Texas God is totally shining his light because it is RAINING!!!!!! As most of y'all know, we are experiencing a drought unlike any other. Hence all the wildfires. So this rain is a true blessing, y'all.

I painted my nails red last night & I love them!! This top coat by Sally Henson is amazing, by the way. I have never found one that dries so fast, & is SO shiny!

I get out of work early today - and then means lunch with one of my besties at Abuelos! Not surprising, I know. And then a much needed pedi to start off Fall.

Lion King 3D comes out today!!! It's one of my ABSOLUTE favorite Disney movies. Ah, I love it. Putting that on the agenda for tonight.

So, yesterday I was craving a shake so I hopped on over to Sonic & LOOK at the cups they are putting them in now! So 1950's. Love it.

Today is so foggy & cold - I love it. I'm thinking after lunch & pedi's, my extra comfy PJ's will be making their appearance. :) YAY for lazy, fall/wintery days!! Boring post, but whatever. It's Frday. :)

Have a great weekend!

What I'm Loving Wednesday

Well, I'm happy to be back for What I'm Loving Wednesday with Jaime! Tell her what YOU'RE loving today! :)
I'm loving... that I'm knocking things off left & right on my 101 in 1001. It feels GREAT!

I'm loving... that plans changed. Well, kind of. You see, we were supposed to be traveling home this weekend to go dove hunting with my dad & little bro BUT it's been so dry, there are no dove. SO, instead of spending an arm & leg on gas, we will be staying here & doing all things FALL!!! I'm super excited.
I'm thinking of hitting up some garage sales Saturday morning, planting mums, crafting, cooking, MAYBE some shopping (hehe) & who knows what else!!! :)

I'm loving... how excited everyone is about fall. The Holidays are my absolute favorite time of the year, & it makes me smile when others are on board!

I'm loving... that today my sweet Nannie is turning 71 years young!!! I love this woman so much, she is one of my best friends & I feel so blessed to have a grandmother like her.

I'm loving... that after prayer last night, Lauren & I met up with an old friend for coffee at Starbucks. We got there around 8:30 & didn't leave til 11:30. Says a lot about how great the conversation was!

I'm loving... that my lovers birthday/Sister's DUE DATE is only 13 days away!!!!! --- for both!!!
I'm loving... answered prayer. Wait. God did not answer this prayer, but He has given me an undeniable peace about it & I am thankful. He will answer it on his own time.

And finally, I'm loving... some of my Pinterest finds this week.

Cute Fall Outfits

Cute cake!

Love the blue



Raspberry Cocktail -- yum! Perfect for a girls night in.

Dior - 1950. Lovely

That's all I've got this "Hump Day!" :)
