Oh, Hey Friday {8.8.14}

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for the weekend!  Here we go!


We found out yesterday that our house contract was ratified!  Now we move on to signing tons of paperwork, scheduling our inspections, the appraisal, etc.  I think I got about 6 house emails in the span of about 20 minutes.  SO much to do!  That said, we’re scheduled to close on 8/27 and are planning to move the following week.  Fingers crossed!


I’m getting so excited about all things fall that are on the horizon…football’s almost here, fall fashion is coming out, and I’m ready to pull out all my sweaters and maybe get a pair of boots for this year.  Plus, that means all my favorite holidays and events are on the way!


This kid LOVES our cats.  Seriously, all day everyday she tries to kiss them…and once tried to pick Mischief up.  No Abbie, not quite yet…

We had a bit of a crazy day yesterday, so we ended up going out to dinner.  Thankfully, Red Lobster is super easy to eat well on – Fresh fish, steamed veggies, a baked potato, and salad for me.  Plus, I only ate ONE cheddar biscuit…and that’s an accomplishment in itself!  Of course, Abbie devoured her mac and cheese.  She’s definitely my kid.

  1. YAY! You’ll be closing on the house in no time and then be able to pull out all that fall decor in a new place- how fun! 🙂 Also, super impressed you were able to only have 1 cheddar biscuit… those things are SO GOOD!!

  2. I’m so excited for you to close on your new house! I know you must be pumped. And this is going to sound crazy, but I think my kid is the only kid in the world who doesn’t like mac n’ cheese! Crazy, huh?

  3. YAY for the new house!!!! And Red Lobster! I’ve totally been on a seafood kick lately (and it turns out fish is one of the only things Julia will eat right now—go figure). I think there’s a RL in the next town over…I may have to pay it a visit very soon.

  4. Yay, congrats on the house! I love that you’re closing on my birthday too. 🙂 Where are you buying?

  5. Congrats on the house!! Such an exciting time for you guys!!
    And I’m SO going to miss out on all the fall fashions this year. Florida is just too darn hot for sweaters and boots. I’m totally bummed!

    Thanks for co-hosting the blog hop this week! Hope lots and lots of new blog friends stopped by!
