Since I've Been Gone and Why I love the Internet

Heyyyy blog friends! Sorry for the mega deep post and then bailing for a few days, alright close to a week. To say things have been crazy here would be an understatement. We live in crazy. Crazy is our new home. Is it sad I'm wishing for our first snow day already? Haha! I just would like a day for all of us to stay home and VEG out. By the way I dress everyday (read: yoga pants and tshirts) you would think I do that already, but I just like to be comfy when I'm busy. :) Momma needs a makeover in a bad way though. For reals. That's another post for another time. I gotta get to what we've been up to the past week.

The weather here has been hot and cold, quite literally. Some days it's warm and some days it's freezing. On one of the milder days, we played outside for awhile. It felt good to be back there again without wondering if I would die from mosquito bites.

One night for dinner, one of the night's I actually cooked and didn't beg Josh to bring something home, because my fragile nerves couldn't take the stress of cooking, I made homemade chicken alfredo. With heavy cream, butter and Parmesan. It was GOOD. And so bad for us.

Let's talk this weekend. Specifically, football. I cannot believe the Hogs are number 3 right now. It's just too much for me to handle. I don't remember in my lifetime, the Hogs ever being ranked this high. And....we battle LSU Friday. Everytime I think about it, I want to throw up a little bit. I'm SO nervous for this game. LSU is my least favorite team, EVER, and if we beat them we go to the National Championship. This is CRAZY!!!! I'm going to be a ball of nerves on Friday. Ahh!!! Also, one of our players died Sunday. I am so heartbroken for his family. Please pray for them, I can't imagine what they are going through right now. SO sad.

This is what Addi thinks of the Hogs being ranked #3!
Before the game, we went to Old Navy, because a twitter friend told me about them having all outerwear 75% off! Too bad everything was picked over. We did stop and play with some precious puppies outside of Petco.Earlier this week, Addi got a belated birthday card full of stickers. She loves her some stickers.Dixie usually sleeps at the foot of our bed or curled up on Josh's side, but last night, she got right in between us and under the covers and stayed there most of the night. It cracked me up.Have y'all tried this??? I used to have a Tassimo, and my mother in law and I were crazy over the Starbucks pods, but then they discontinued them. We both have Keurigs now and I was thrilled to find these.

Let's talk about reasons why I love the internet. Have you heard of Klout? You get points by influencing others in topics such as, blogging, parenting, or teeth strangely enough. I didn't really know much about it, but I found out I had enough points to get a Klout Perk. I was pretty skeptical until this arrived in the mail today.
A legit $25 american express gift card. Josh read the fine print, because y'all know that man is not going to believe someone is just sending his wife free money, but it's real! And I'm giddy about it! Haha!
Also, this arrived in the mail very own Erin Condren Life Planner. I know I'm way behind on this, but I had a credit for the EC store so I decided to get a planner. I wasn't sure it would live up to all the hype, but it exceeded my expectations. Just look at how pretty the BOX was that it came in.
I haven't actually written in it yet, because ya know I have to get special pens. :) And I'm kinda nervous to write in it because it's so pretty. But, I really love it.

Can y'all believe it's Thanksgiving week?! I sure can't. I am looking forward to spending time with family and stuffing ourselves. :)

Hope y'all had a great weekend!!!


  1. Do tell about the Klout perks. I have a score of 52 or something on do I get perks?

  2. I have never heard of Klout, but I have also never heard of Erin Condren life planners...I must look into this stuff!
    I wish the Razorbacks had pulled it out. I loathe LSU and their mean fans. :(
