Happy Monday from the big apple!!! Look what happened this morning! More pics to come.
First of all, if you weren’t watching the Iron Bowl Saturday, you were just wrong. Although I’m still a little under the weather, you better believe I was running around screaming like a mad woman (or really eager Auburn fan) when this happened. There are not many games that I would watch again on ESPN classic, but I could watch this one over and over. SEC CHAMPIONSHIP Y’ALL.
Friday, we headed to Memphis and I FINALLY got to see this girl for the first time since she’s been preggers! I cannot wait for baby F to get here.
Saturday, we had Thanksgiving with the Moody’s! No pics, but it was full of yummy food (and a bundt cake disaster from yours truly), hanging out, and celebrating an Auburn win!!! I mean, I can’t even. Happy Monday and War Eagle!
Saturday, we made french toast and headed to Memphis to see fam! We watched football and ate delicious food with my in-laws. We had the best kind of Sunday morning, full of pancakes, chatting, and piddling around before heading to the church house.
Also, Iron Bowl in 5 days!!!! Go Auburn Go!
I started my new job last week and I was absolutely petrified. For the first time, I was no longer a student. I was treating patients by myself!!! I couldn’t even eat lunch on my first day because I was so anxious. These above words have been my mantra. I am so thankful for a job, helpful co-workers and the opportunity to finally use skills to help others! This weekend has been wonderful. Friday night we had a bonfire in our backyard complete with smore’s!
This guy. On Saturday, we went down to Starkville with my mom. We had the best time seeing friends and family. Also, this happened. I. can’t. even. deal. I was running around giving everyone I saw a high five. WDE y’all.
Happy happy Monday!
This weekend was our inaugural surprise weekend! A couple of months ago, Sam had this great idea to designate two weekends out of the year-one fall/winter and one spring/summer-for a weekend getaway. Rules include a pre-set budget and you can’t tell the person where you are going until you’re in the car. I got this fall, and Sam will get to plan this spring/summer. Then we switch-Sam will get to do fall/winter 2014 so we both get a chance to plan different seasons. I went to Auburn and Sam went to UT Knoxville, so I knew we had to go when I saw that we played each other November 9. We drove to Nashville Friday to stay with Leah and Allen. Time with them makes me so happy.
Then we woke up bright and early to head to Knoxville. We scalped some tickets and cheered on our teams (I had a lot more to cheer about). After, we got to tailgate with Julie and Jeff, our friends who introduced us! Then we hung out with our almost married friends Ethan and Kato. Time with friends is seriously the best. I had so much belly laughter this weekend-that’s when you know that it’s been a good one.
Knoxville is so pretty in the fall!! It was very crisp at the game. Maybe a little too crisp. I had to bum a sweatshirt from Ethan so I didn’t turn into a popsicle. This is our best attempt to capture the river and the color-changing trees (it was super sunny).
Here are some links the caught my eye this past week:

Happy happy Monday!
How was y’alls weekend? Ours consisted of family, friends, football, and tennis-aka, a GREAT weekend. Also, daylight savings time is really screwing with us. We ate dinner at 4:45 last night. It’s fine. The only good thing about a rainy Halloween is the excuse to wear these:
Here are some things that caught my eye last week:
Dawson’s Creek. All grown up. Love seeing what my childhood friends are up to these days!
The Grizzlies heart Memphis. And I heart them.
If I could dance like these kids, I wouldn’t stop. Like ever.
I heart George W. Whether you agree with his political views or not, this video of George and his granddaughter Mila is adorbs. As is this pic of the former president and baby astronaut celebrating Halloween.
Big week ahead people! Thankful for being surrounded and encouraged by the prayers of my friends and family. Here are some snapshots of my weekend. Sam was out of town so this was my partner in crime the past couple of days:
My sister-friend Leah and her other half, Allen, came home this weekend, but I didn’t get a single pic with her! I guess we were just enjoying the moment and soaking up some Tupelo-time. My heart feels so full after being her this weekend.
Here are some links I was digging this week:
Abiding by these verses this week.
