Sunday: Slept in, woke up with a slight headache (ugh-I'm sure that had nothing to do with the wine from Saturday's festivities). Went to the pumpkin patch with JWB. Sunday Supper @ my parent's with mom/dad, future MIL & FIL, JWB/me, & my bro.

Great weekend :)


"May today there be peace within.
May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself & others.
May you use the gifts that you have received, & pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content with yourself just the way you are.
Let this knowledge settle into your bones, & allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise, & love.
It is there for each & every one of us."
-Mother Teresa love LOVE this quote.

Have a good day :)

WHEW-it's been a busy week!

Monday: work. My parents cooked up a delicious feast & my parents + my bro + JWB/me all ate, laughed, & caught each other up on the insanities of each of our lives. I can't reiterate enough how awesome my family is.

Tuesday: work. JWB/me + Kel + Tripp ate at our fave restaurant SR...Tripp was in town for the furniture market, so anytime he is home from Nashville we make sure to steal him away for atleast one night! JWB & Tripp have been friends FOREVER & he has been a "big brother" to me since I was 14-he is special guy to both of us.

Wednesday: work. Girlfriend Dinner Night w/Kel & BB. I ABSOLUTELY love my man but time with your friends is essential. Kel cooked up an awesome lasagna & we watched Hocus Pocus-yes we are all in our mid-20's-ish but ABC Family 13 Nights of Halloween makes our calendar every year.

Thursday: work. OFFICIALLY moved in with JWB. Very exciting & such a relief to have that behind us.

Friday: work. TGIF! Date Night with JWB-were going to cook up a yummy supper & watch a movie. I cannot tell you the last time we had a free Friday to just relax so we are going to take advantage of our opportunity!

Saturday & Sunday: Oh how I love you weekend days. Don't know what the wknd will bring, Phi Mu sister & friend will marry her beau tomorrow :) I can't wait to see that gorgeous bride-to-be walk down the aisle! Congrats in advance to the new Mr. & Mrs.!!!

It's Friday-whoop whoop!

...just wanted to note a few thoughts:

I am so thankful to be blessed with a loving and supportive mom, dad, and brother are some of the most amazing people I've ever met.

I am so thankful for my JWB-there are no words to describe that cowboy...he's just the

I am so thankful for my friends...there a certain few that have withstood the test of time and together we have shared heartbreak, laughter, memories, inside jokes, and just a special understanding of each other. Just last night, as I was on my way home from my girlfriend's ("Miss K") house, I couldn't help but feel this glow of happiness because it is so amazing to have a friend who just gets YOU-never judges, never asks questions, just loves you for who you are.

This is a pic from my BIG's recent engagement party-another lady who is very dear to me! :)
(K, BIG, me)

I am thankful for lake weekends & cold beers. Lakeside, here we come.

God is good.

Planning a wedding is for the birds.

However, some fun events are just around the corner.

Our location is swoon worthy.

JWB asked if we could put this farm on our registry...

Thursday is my favorite day of the week because I love the anticipation of what's instore for the weekend...I feel like once it's Thursday, it's time for fun!

And since it is Thursday, I woke up in just an awesome mood & was thinking about all the good things in my life as I was getting ready this morning:

-My fiance is just the best thing ever. I believe every woman should have someone who loves her and tells her/shows her that everyday. There is nothing better than hearing "I love you" as you start and end your day.

-My friends are amazing...I am so blessed to have people in my life that love me for me. My friends are beautiful on the inside & out, hilarious, spontaneous, genuine, and just good people. Each of my friends makes the puzzle complete, without each of the piece, it just wouldn't be the same.

-My family is awesome. Between the laughter, the advice, the "just being there", the comfort they provide, etc...they rock.

-I am in love with fall right now. I love getting into my car on a chilly day and the sun beams through the window and its just like a warm blanket :) I love pumpkin candles. I love the Thanksgiving commercials on tv. I love boots.

-I love that every morning on my way to work, this little old man walks his dog at the same time, everyday and he always smiles & waves to me.

-I love that around this time next month, me & JWB will *hopefully* be an uncle & aunt. We're first-timers folks!

Life is good.

After over nine years with JWB...
-I still get butterflies.
-I still think I'm the luckiest person in the world to be "his girl".
-I still think he's cooler than me-because when we met, he was the "cool Senior boy" & always will be in my eyes.
-I still think he's hilarious.
-I still think he's the most handsome man I've ever seen.
...The day I say "I do" will be the happiest day of my life.

I heart fall.

I made these babies last night-

Pecan.Pie.Muffins. Oh my.

I got the recipe off of my favorite blog-

So easy to make, so yummy!

1 C packed light brown sugar
1/2 C flour
1 C chopped pecans
2/3 C softened butter
2 eggs, beaten

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Grease muffin pan.

In medium bowl, stir together brown sugar, flour, and pecans. In a separate bowl, beat the butter and eggs together until smooth. Stir into the dry ingredients just until combined.

Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups-about 2/3 full. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

Bring on the pumpkin scented candles, crisp temps, & colorful leaves.

Apple Bottom Jeans

Does anyone else suddenly want to to wear a red t-shirt & listen to Flo Rida?

...around the 30 second mark is my favorite.

This little boy is a good reminder that we should all:
"Dance like no one is watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like no one is listening,
and live like it's heaven on earth."
