Maroon Out

Monday, November 10, 2014

I'm not really an Aggie fan, but the title seemed fitting for these pants. And the fact that the Aggies won this weekend.

Any-who, I think I'm going to start a petition for mandatory three day weekends. Anyone with me? I need two full days to actually relax and then one full day to prepare for the week.

Saturday was spent with one of my best friends to celebrate her at her bridal shower. I took zero picture because sometimes I just like to be in the moment. It was themed "Fall in Love" and so, obviously, the theme was fall. Her mom and sister are the party planning queens, so everything was perfection.

After the shower I stuck around so we ccould chit chat. We go way back into our boy chasing days in college and it is fun to think about all the silly times we've had.

When I got home Saturday, my sweet hubby had cleaned the whole house and was working on the mound of laundry that was still waiting to get done since our NY trip last week. He had a candle lit and all the clothes folded. It was precious.

Saturday night we went out to eat with our neighbors who are, sadly, moving to California in two weeks. We will miss them dearly! After dinner we went shopping for their six year old little girl. I had so much fun picking out little girl clothes!

Sunday we woke up and watched our church sermon on the computer. I hadn't had a chance to sleep in since who knows when, so it was sweet of Chris to have coffee and muffins waiting in the man cave when I woke up.

Around noon I headed out to Christmas shop with our neighbor. I was able to cross a couple people off the list, so that's a plus! I might have gotten some things for myself that I'm super excited to share with y'all!

Chris went grocery shopping and even made us a Crock-Pot meal. I didn't even know he knew how to use that thing! And he surprised me with Trader Joe's Cookie Butter. Something has gooten into my sweet man this weekend!

Now it is Sunday night and I am pooped again. These weeks are tough. My school schedule is pretty exhausting and I get approximately no minutes to myself at all during the day. To say I am ready for Thanksgiving break summer would be an understatement.

Here is just a hint at some things I got this weekend:

This vest,
And this vest...
This plaid top,
and this sweater.

That's all the hints you get :)

Happy Monday!

Linking up with Leann and Kimberlee!

  5. YES PLEASE to the mandatory 3 day weekend. I really do think I would be such a better teacher if they would ever take our word for that! YAY for a great weekend with good friends. Hope you had a good start to your week. only 9 more days until Thanksgiving! woohoo!

  6. Your hubby is just the sweetest. It makes me so happy when mine decide to clean up, light a candle and do some laundry so I can have my weekend of fun, so sweet. Can't wait to see what you got from Target, I've been hitting it up on the weekly lately, not that it's anything usual. ha. & while I'm not an aggie fan either - I'm a UT girl, those pants are too cute!! I don't ever hate on the aggies or any other school for that matter, because I have too many friends that went to school all over le Texas. haha.
