Happy Friday, y'all! I'm so beyond thankful the end of the week is {finally} here! Poor Walker has croup, so I'm home from work with him today. Say a prayer he gets better for me, will you?

We celebrated Brandon's 29th birthday yesterday...last one of his 20's! {Eeep!} He requested his favorite dinner: pork tenderloin, corn casserole, green beans and his family's passed-down-for-generations homemade banana pudding. And let me tell you, I loathe making that thing, but I guess I'll do it once a year. Ha! 

I posted this picture on Instagram yesterday, and I can't get over how much Walker and Brandon look alike...especially their profiles!

I just mailed off today 106 baby shower invitations {yes, you read that correctly} for my best friend Lindsey. She is expecting a baby boy, Austin, in February. Brandon was so awesome and helped me stamp, stuff and lick all of them Wednesday night - in addition to all of our Christmas cards. He is a trooper. 

And why of course I had to use my wine glass as size comparison! ;)

We have Brandon's company Christmas dinner tonight, and I have ZERO idea what to wear. It's one of those instances where I love and hate everything in my closet at the same time. Tell me I'm not the only one who does this. Should I go with this top and a cute pencil skirt? Or a chevron dress that I have that looks similar to this? I'm balancing being cute and yet also I'm-around-his-boss-and-want-to-look-like-a-mature-adult outfit. 

I have been all about slow cooker meals this week, and this one is our absolute favorite: Slow Cooker Cheesy Chicken and Rice from Southern Plate. It's so ridiculously simple and really yummy for a cold winter evening. Don't let the random picture from their blog deter you; I promise it's so yummy! 

College Game Day is going to be at my alma mater, Baylor University, on Saturday! To say I'm excited about that is an understatement! I'm hoping for a Baylor win so we will win the Big 12 Championship...because do you remember that time that TCU beat Baylor earlier this year? Yeah, me neither. ;) Sic 'Em Bears! 

Per usual, linking up with Amy and Karli for "Oh Hey, Friday!"; Lauren for "High Five for Friday" and April, Christina, Natasha and Darci for "Five on Friday." 



  1. We have Keith's company dinner tonight too and I am in the same boat! NO idea what to wear. I'll text you outfit ideas later :)
    Feel better Walky-Walk!!!!

  2. That is a ton of invitations! Good work! Brandon and Walker really do look alike! Adorable. I hate trying to find something to wear to the hubs holiday party! Love that dress though. :) Hope Walker starts feeling better soon. Have a good weekend!
