Life lately and something kind of exciting!

September 19, 2014

NBD this Cars Bubble Blowing Machine has just taken over our life.
He is obsessed.
It's half off right now and if you have a little toddler I would highly suggest you invest 10 dollars for their happiness :)

Ryan's first pair of Nike Frees to match the rest of us. Kills me.
(( you can find them HERE ))

When did you get so big child!?!?

Football season is totally here.
Yay for Fall!!
(( Even though it is still so dang hot in Texas - I like the thought of Fall HA ))

My husband might be a little too excited about it. 

He got Ryan all pumped up for the season and has Ryan glued to ESPN lately.
(( I'm totally outnumbered ))

Said goodbye to the most beautiful mountains today! ( more to come on our little Utah trip soon! )

ANNND for the really exciting part,

Last week we signed the papers on our very first little HOME!!!!
We chose a floor plan and decided to build.

Oh my gosh, we are so excited.
(( Slightly clueless about what we are doing, but so excited! ))

It's been in the making for a while,
but because of a couple bumps in the road we are just now making it official  :)


I have to pick out everything in my whole house THIS WEEK
( talk about pressure )
and they start building in about 3 weeks!

Aaron got his first REAL life paycheck as an attorney - SO WEIRD!

We are just feeling like mega adults right now and we are pretty giddy about it.

Happy Happy Friday Darlings!

Giveaway- $120 Anthropologie GIFTCARD!!!

September 17, 2014

My husband's exact wording.....   "Anthropologie is DANGEROUS."

I'm guessing he means "dangerous for the credit card" ( but that's just a really good guess ;)

The danger that comes with Anthropologie is, that it is WAY more than just a cute clothing store.

From candles, that make our little townhome smell like a dream,
to Shoes ( my wish list booties they have right now-  HERE )
and of course the clothes and accessories - 

Anthro has it going on!

I'm so excited to announce that these darling bloggers and I have teamed up to offer you a chance to win a $120 gift card to Anthropologie!

You can use the Rafflecopter below to enter.

The giveaway will run from 12:00 am EST on September 18th until 11:59 pm EST on September 25th. 
All entries will be verified. 

Good luck!

Make your own Fall Wreath

September 12, 2014

My beautiful dear friend Chelsea and I decided to get crafty one day.

Gosh, we have been dreaming of fall over here in this 95 degree weather!

We had seen a bunch of fall wreaths floating around Pinterest and we decided to try one of our own!

You guys! 
You can totally do this. 
Super simple and WAY cheaper than buying your own at the store.

Step 1:  Get your supplies.
Burlap, wire ring, flowers, pumpkins, whatever else your little heart desires!
We found ours at JoAnns.

Step 2: Tie a knot to the 2nd inner wire.

Step 3: On the next wire in make a loop with the tail of your burlap.

Step 4: Take the tail of your burlap and loop in through the loop you just made.

Step 5:  Keep doing that about a million times all around your wire wreath.

            Tip: Make your loops on a different wire each time.

Step 6: To finish off your wreath tie another knot at the end.

Step 7: Adjust your loops so there are no bald spots.

Step 8: Add any flowers or fall embellishment you’d like using hot glue gun.

            Disclaimer: Sometimes the loops will not want to cooperate; you’ll just have to coax them to do what you want.  J

Also: you can make the loops as big and loose or as tight as you want them!

Happy crafting ladies!!

Speaking of fall...I'm currently in Utah with my family and in heaven with this weather!
The trees are changing and the mountains are beyond beautiful.
I LOVE this time of year!
