What's in my purse??

Okay, I know I'm a few years months behind on this thing that floated around bloggyland for a while but hey, better late than never, right?!

Here's my purse and all it's contents:

1) The purse. It's nothing to brag about, it was my moms and she hated it, she said she felt like she was carrying luggage everywhere she went so I took it. It works perfect for me!

2) Keys. Again, nothing special. House keys, my parents house key, mother-in-law's house key, hubby's spare key for his truck and a Clemson keychain.

3) Very Sexy by Victoria's Secret. True story: I totally forgot I got this for Christmas a couple years ago until I found it under my bathroom sink. Score!

4) Vera Bradley wallet. This poor thing has probably seen it's last days. I desperately need a new wallet.

5) Costa sunglasses case--obvs not serving it's purpose.

6) Baggie full of chapsticks, lipglosses, hair ties...just little crap I don't want floating around the bottom of my purse.

7) Vera Bradley keychain wallet. Love this! It's perfect for going out!

8) Costa sunglasses. I am in LOVE with these sunglasses!

9) Bills. These are never ending...

And there you have it! 

10 Day Challenge--Day 3

10 Day Challenge
Day Three
Three Films

one) Steel Magnolias

two) Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls

three) Friday After Next
Not the classiest of movies, but it's a good one in my book!


This past weekend was spent relaxing and not so patiently waiting on NFL! My husband is a DIE HARD Oakland Raiders fan and we do not miss a single game! We both love college and professional football. 
I woke up yesterday morning with a sore throat and stuffiness, thinking it would go away throughout the course of the day but oh no, I wake up this morning and it's even worse! All I want to do is SLEEP! However, no sleep when you're a stay at home mama of a very busy 3 year old!!

Y'all have a wonderful Tuesday and is it Friday yet???

WILW & 10 Day Challenge

10 Day Challenge
Day 4

Four Books:
*Disclamer* I'm not much of a book reader. I never read books in school when I was supposed to, I always bought the cliff notes. And honestly the only books I've ever read that aren't by Nicholas Sparks are the ones by Tori Spelling.

1) A Walk to Remember. Loved the book and the movie.

2) A Bend in the Road

3) The Last Song. Again, loved the book and movie.

4) Dear John, yes I loved the book and movie. 

So,what can I say? I truly enjoy Nicholas Sparks' work. He's an awesome writer, and it doesn't hurt that he's from North Carolina.


Link up with Jamie and let us know what you're loving!

one) I'm *loving* this cooler weather!! Oh my goodness, it was SO nice to sleep with the windows open last night and to actually be chilly this morning! This summer has been BRUTAL for us so I will welcome the fall with open arms!

two) And with fall comes fall decor of course! I think fall is my favorite season. I mean don't get me wrong, I do love the summer, mainly because my birthday is in July but I love swimming, going out on the boat, anything to do with water! Anyways, fall decor: *love* it! All images via Pinterest

three) I'm *loving* this Bible verse:

four) I'm *loving* that college football started last weekend! I am a Clemson fan through and through. And we won our first game! Even though it wasn't a "big name team" a W is a W!

five) I'm *loving* that my husband won an XBox 360! Over the weekend we went to a local arcade/go kart track/putt putt course and they had this huge machine thing (it looked like one of those machines that has a claw and you can win stuffed animals, except it was HUGE and the claw was the biggest one I've ever seen) that you put $3 in and there was 3 boxes on the bottom of the machine. So my husband put his money in and sure enough on the first try he picked up a box! We were sure it was going to fall before it made it to the landing pad, well it didn't! So we took the box out not knowing what prizes we could choose from. We honestly thought it was going to be crappy prizes. When the guy showed us our options (it was either the XBox 360 or a Mario Kart Wii, which we already have) we were floored!! So we got an XBox 360 for $3!

10 Day Challenge--Day 5

Day Five
Five Foods:

1) Desserts. I could eat pretty much any sweet treat, except if it's got fruit in it. I don't do mushy, baked fruit.

2) Macaroni & cheese. I'll eat anyone's mac & cheese, I'm not partial to any one person's.

3) Japanese, hibachi style. Love, love, love it! The food, the experience, the whole shebang.

4) My mom's cubed steak and mashed potatoes. 

5) My mother in law's chicken and dumplings.


Have a good long weekend everyone!

Days 8 & 7

Eight fears:

1) Losing my family &/or friends suddenly

2) Severe weather (ie: tornadoes, thunderstorms, hurricanes...)

3) Animals (as discussed in my 10 secrets) but I'll elaborate a little. Mostly animals that can harm me. Snakes; big, mean dogs; bees; wasps

4) Dying a tragic death

5) Being rear-ended 

6) Being stranded with no cell phone or other communication

7) Being robbed 

8) Losing my home, not necessarily the material things in our house but just our house in general. 


Seven wants:

Tiffany Bubbles Ring

2) Dodge Challenger SRT8

3) Cooler weather. I'm sure I'll be praying for June come January but this summer has been rough!!

4) A new wardrobe. I feel like I wear the same things every week!

5) A vacation back to the cabin me and my husband went on our honeymoon

6) Kristen embossed python  flap satchel from Coach

7) Money. I know this is SO cliche. I don't want to be a millionaire I just want to be able to live comfortably and not have to stress over bills, but then again who doesn't??

And I'm not really sure why my caption box is so big...

10 Day Challenge--Day 9

9 Loves:

1) My husband. The father of my child, my provider, my rock. I love this man more than life itself. Even though it's not always rainbows and unicorns I can't imagine my life without him.

I also love him because he helps me do crazy things like this:

And because he's the best dad in the world :)

2) My sweet little Livi. The greatest surprise I've ever been blessed with. This little girl has me and her daddy wrapped around her little finger. Even though she was a surprise I can NOT imagine life without her. 

3) Family. I think this is a given for most people. Without my family I wouldn't have anything.  If I didn't have my mom, dad & sister I wouldn't be the woman I am today.

Me, my dad, my mom & my sister
My sister & me
My mom & me

4) My friends<--this needs no explanation, right?!

Not the best picture but here's Miranda & I
 I met Miranda through our husbands. We did not really "click" at first but thank goodness that changed! 
Bree & I
I met Bree in school. We both went to the same small private school in our hometown. She moved to Florida right after we graduated high school but we are still VERY VERY close.

5) Clemson football.

6) Fall weather

7) Country music

8) Sleep. I could literally sleep 12+ hours a night and take a nice long nap during the day. I love, love love to sleep and any of you mama's out there know that when you have a kid(s) sleep doesn't always happen. I was just telling a friend of mine, even though my Olivia is 3 years old I'm still not caught up on all my sleep. 

9) Jesus Christ, who made the ultimate sacrifice for me, knowing I would fail him daily.

10 Day Challenge

I've seen this little 10 day challenge floating around bloggy land and I decided I'd jump on the bandwagon so here goes day 1!

10 Secrets:

1)  I hate trying to come up with things to blog about, but I am obsessed with reading other people's blogs.

2) I am a scardey cat when it comes to animals-big time! I am afraid of most dogs, pretty much all cats, all bugs, creatures, insects, lizards--you name it, I'm scared of it!

3) I hate being alone.period. No matter what the situation is, I don't like being alone, whether it be at home, or going places, I'd much rather be with people.

4) Every day when my husband gets home from work we drink a beer together. It's just our time to kind of talk about our day and spend some time together. When the little one is staying the night off we usually have 24 more than 1 ;) 

5) I miss having short hair but I know as soon as I cut it I'll miss my long hair. Lose-lose situation...

6) With that being said, I did just cut my own hair for the first time. It was only 2 inches but hey, anything was better than what it looked like before. I was on the verge of looking like this:

7) I want to do a VLOG but have NO clue what the topic would be.

8) I have ZERO self asteem, I've tried working on it but it hasn't happened yet. I've been this way ever since I can remember.

9) When I was little I always wanted to live, literally, in my parents front yard. Now that I'm older I could slap my little 10 year old self upside the head. Don't get me wrong, I love my family more than life itself but honestly, my parents would drive me up the wall.

10) Also when I was little I was apparently obsessed with writing my name all over everything. I wrote my name on my grandpa's truck with a stick and even spelled it wrong, Emliy. I also wrote it on my babysitter's house, seriously WTF was wrong with me??

So there you have it, 10 secrets about little ole me!
Enjoy! :)

Wednesday Lovin!

I am SO glad this week is half way over with. I just love the weekends (duh, doesn't everyone?!) 
Go link up with Jamie and tell us what you're loving today!

I'm *loving* that tonight is date night! Me and the hubs haven't had one of these in a very long time, it's way overdue, so I'm very much so looking forward to tonight!

I'm *loving* that my friend decided to start a blog! She had a precious baby boy almost 8 (!) weeks ago and she is blogging all about him, which is such a great idea, that way she won't forget any little things that have and will happen. Blaine is the sweetest little boy! Go show Bree some love! 

I'm *loving* my latest Pinterest finds:
Yes, please!

So sweet :)

Now that I have a child, this is SO true!
Happy Humpday everyone!!
