Well hello and Happy Friday to you! I didn't mean to miss out on posting Wednesday and Thursday, but this week just got the best of me. Whew! So, let's do this! 

Like I mentioned, this has been one heck of a week. Coming back to work and trying to remember how in the heck to actually do that - work - has been pretty insane. Walker has been all out of sorts, there is ridiculous drama at work, and I've basically downed about three bottles of wine this week. Ugh! Walker and I share the same sentiment about this week:

My mom gave me this precious monogrammed vest for Christmas, and I am having too much fun wearing it today. Also? Ignore my tired eyes and unmade bed. Kthanks.

I got Brandon Amazon Fire TV for Christmas, and we have Netflix on it. Since then, we have been on a major Netflix binge. We binge-watched the first two seasons of "House of Cards" and started "Orange is the New Black" last night. #obsessed 

I have to go to my hometown this weekend for my best friend's baby shower. {Four hours tomorrow morning one way and four hours coming back on Sunday night....eeek.} That said, I'm leaving Brandon and Walker alone overnight by themselves for two nights for the first time ever. Because my husband epitomizes the picture below, I have been killing myself trying to get laundry done, a trip to the grocery store completed and all food and bottles labeled for the weekend. Wish them luck! Ha! 

And while there is a part of me that loves that my husband is going to have to do what I do every day {with a full-time job}, the control freak in me just can't let it go. I'm very likely going to come home to a mismatched-dressed son and crumbs all over the floor, but I'm secretly {or not so} looking forward to sleeping in on Sunday morning and not having mommy duties until Monday morning. 

I kind of am in denial that this sweet baby is going to be ONE in three weeks. Seriously, wahhhh! And with this sly grin, I'm surely in for it in the years to come. #watchoutladies 

Linking up with April, Christina, Darci and Natasha

and Lauren



  1. Oh my goodness YOUR SON! I just want to eat his cheeks! And 1 years old? Oh my goodness! I can't even stand it. Emry turns 8 in March, and I am in oober denial because he is almost as tall as I am.

    When I went to my (now) SIL baby shower - - it was 6 hours one way. I did that the same way you are going to do your 4 hour journey. It was awful - but, sometimes you just have to get it done! Have such a good time!!!

  2. You are so pretty - love that vest! Okay, let me go stalk your blog now for a makeup tutorial?!

  3. That is 1 adorable baby boy! My son is 19 months, and tome just flies by. And OITKB and House of Cards are both AMAZING shows!

    Also, I hope you'll hop over to my blog and link up for H54F:) Some of my friends and I are carrying on the H54F torch for the Lauren Elizabeth and would love to have you link up! Since it's our 1st week, we're doing a giveaway for a $100 Target giftcard to 1 of the bloggers who links up with us! Hope you'll join in!


  4. Sounds like a rough week back girl, but I'm glad you have some me time this weekend! I would probably be doing the exact same control-freak things if I was leaving my husband on dad duty for a weekend. haha. That vest is super cute! We were really into OITNB for the first two seasons and then I got burnt out. And that smile- what a heartbreaker! Too cute. Have a fab weekend!

  5. Oh my gosh I LOVE that vest! So cute!! And you little one is absolutely adorable.

  6. The ECARD is Perfect! And I love HofC, and will soon start Orange is the New Black too! Netflix it awesome!

  7. I binge-watched OITNB over the summer! I can't wait for the next season!
