Matthew has been in Knoxville all week on a business trip and is, Lord Willing, coming home tonight!! Woo hoo! I am counting down the hours until I can bust out of the office to get home and see him.

My sister has been over some this week, we have gotten in plenty of girl talk and Friends binging on Netflix lol. She loves Friends like Matthew and I love How I Met Your Mother.
Which makes me think of our Friendsgiving 2015 invitation that I created last year...
Which also makes me really excited about fall and Friendsgiving this year...

I'm not sure why, but I am way to excited to decorate for fall. Wanting fall to get here quicker is so unlike me lol, but for some reason this year I can't stop thinking about how I'll decorate our home, wearing comfy sweaters, and using our fire place! Don't get me started on fall candles...I am patiently waiting to purchase them, because I know if I buy any now they will be burning the second I get home.

I went to my parents house last night for dinner and this view just makes me HAPPY. Corn fields, hay bales and country's the road that leads me to my childhood home.

Matthew got free tickets to the Titans game this Saturday so we are heading to that tomorrow afternoon. I haven't been to a Titans game in YEARS so I am looking forward to it! Although we prefer college football to NFL, it will still be fun to go tomorrow night! We are hoping for good weather and a win! Other than the game we have some a lot of painting to do, and Sunday is homecoming at our church, so there will be different activities for that all day!


  1. I probably shouldn't tell you then that Bath & Body Works is running a deal on candles basically 2 for the price of 1, AND if you use the $10 off $30 coupon via email you're basically getting 3 candles for $25ish. CRAZY! I am with you, I do love summer, but Fall is so exciting. I'm ready for cooler temps and crisp afternoons!

  2. Yay for Matthew coming home!! I bet you can't wait for him to come home!! Have so much fun at the football game!

  3. A football game sounds like such a fun date! Gotta love those free tickets!

  4. You all are going to have a blast at the football game!! I bet you are super excited to get home & see him! Do you do okay staying alone while he's gone? I'm such a chicken...most nights Jared has to work, I pack up a bag and have a slumber party with my parents or grandparents!

  5. Have so much fun running home to your sweet hubby! Marriage is weird because the alone time is nice and all, buuuuuut it's so weird going from being together pretty much all the time to not being together. You get used to always having someone around!

  6. I love Fall too! I literally just went to Bath and Body Works and stocked up on all things pumpkin!!!! There is a pumpkin waffle candle burning as I write this!! Enjoy seeing your husband!

  7. I am right there with you dreaming about all things Fall!! I had the SAME thought about candles. I am itching to get some Bath and Body Works Fall candles, but I just can't feel right about burning them when it's 100 degrees outside! Can't wait to see how you decorate your home for Fall! :)

  8. I love decorating for fall too! My favorite is decorating for Christmas but I think my favorite time of the year is September-Jan 1! I love fall clothes, too. And Friends is one of my favorite shows--I watch at least one episode every afternoon haha! Have fun at the football game!

  9. I've been on a huge friends kick lately! Hope you had fun at the game, I was just at their stadium at the end of July for the Beachbody yearly coach summit. I can't wait for fall either, there is something about the colors and just the smell of it that makes me so happy! Plus the heat near Philly has been oppressive this year so I'm excited to have to wear a sweater!
