Five on Friday


We managed to snag a couple last minute tickets to the USC v Vanderbilt game for Saturday, and I'm actually pretty excited. While it means I won't be able to watch my team (Bama) take on Texas A&M, it'll be Brandon's first time to Williams-Brice stadium. As a Carolina girl born and bred, this is kind of a special thing no matter what team you cheer for.


My birthday is a mere few weeks away. Last year, was the first time I ever thought whoa I'm really getting older. It seems this mindset has continued over to this year as well. Where does the time go?!

Oh yeah, it all flies by thanks to that guy.


Our kitchen has been seeing some serious use.  As my husband noted at some point Sunday, I'd been in the kitchen for like four hours. Oops! Being in the kitchen, experimenting with recipes is such a wonderful thing. Cleaning the dishes, however, not so much. Delicious things are headed to the blog...sneak peek:


I am 100% ready for Fall and everything that comes with it. The 90+ degree weather happening tells me mother nature thinks otherwise. I'm holding out hope the temperatures cool as my birthday approaches. Oh and? If I see one more IG of a pumpkin spice latte, I may just lose my ish. Don't y'all know the salted caramel mocha is where it's at?!! Trust me!
