Game Time Grub

I don't know about y'all, but down here in the south, football is our thing, and Super Bowl is the best! Football, friends and good food, what more could you ask for? I've been waiting for a football party to try out some yummy appetizers from my Yum-Yum Gimme Some board on Pinterest. Here's what I've narrowed id down to...

Baked Brie..this looks soooo easy!

All these items sound delish, so hard to decide which ones to make. Our group of friends always tends to WAYYY over prepare with too much food, what can I say, we like good food! The treadmill will definitely be calling my name after Sunday ;)

This floor makes cents

Came across this article the other day about a couple that covered their entire floor in Pennys, and checked out their website, THEPENNYFLOOR, for pics on how they did it....I kind of love it, what do you think?

Getting Stitchy with it

Guess what the hubs let me go get, an embroidery machine, woo hoo, I'm so excited!! I've wanted one for a bit, but they are so expensive! Then I saw a facebook friend was doing some really awesome stuff, and she has the Brother SE-400, which is only $369 at Walmart. So I went over and scooped one up yesterday, it was our 13 year anniversary since we started dating, awww ♥ And got busy last night making some burp clothes and embroidering an outfit I got for a friend who's Little girl is due any day now. 


It was so easy and user friendly! I'm already racking my brain thinking of what to do next, but I'm taking baby steps, so I don't ruin anything, like this unfortunate burp rag, oh well, trial and error :)

Good things come in big packages ;)

My UPS and Fedex guy both tuck packages behind my front column for me, so its such a fun surprise to come around the corner and find something hiding there for me. Look at what I found when I got home yesterday ....Just an ominous big box right?

Nope! The fabulous Lily Pulitzer Zebra rug in Blue and Lime green from the lovely Shelli at her Alamode Blog sale. Her nursery it came from, here, was absolutely gorgeous!

I was so happy jumping up and down, my kiddos thought I was crazy :) Can't wait to get the curtains in too. I will be redoing my office/guest room, and hopefully will get a reveal posted up sometime next week.

She's Gone County

Well we have a very busy weekend coming up! Tonuight we're going camping with some friends and their kids too, back in the Nature Conservatory that we live's supposed to be 36* eek! Then Saturday night we're headed out with the same set of friends for some adult time at the Hillbilly Thrill Billy Ball. It's put on by one of Pensacola's Madri Gras Krewes, and we are so excited! The Krewe Of Daisy Dukes is an all girl crew, and they always dress "Cowgirl Chic." So of course I jumped on Pinterest to find some inspiration on what to wear, here's some of my favs....
country cutie
Love the dress and jean jacket look, very cute and flirty!

country chic
This is more sophisticated county, I've got a very similar jacket but in cream, hmmm....

country gal
I think this is probably close to what I'm going for, I love the neutral shirt that lets the turquoise really pop!
