Monday is officially Halloween...and I completely forgot about that yesterday afternoon. If you are following me on Snapchat then you saw this, but yesterday afternoon on my way home I decided to make a quick stop by Party City for some stuff for Friendsgiving next month. Everyone and their mother was there and it was a mad house!! Thankfully the aisle I needed to go down was not close to the costume section so I was looking at what I needed when all of a sudden this little boy rounds the corner with a plastic sword. I didn't pay much attention to him until he was about to attack me with it, so I grabbed my items that I needed and quickly started to walk away, Wouldn't you know said child practically chased me down the aisle. I didn't want to cause a scene or I would have taken that sword from him and chased him lol kidding...kinda. Well I get to the register (finally) and his mother comes looking for him...still not sure why in the world she was letting him roam around on his own and act crazy. I would have been spanked if I tried to even attempt to do that to a stranger when I was a child!! So don't make my mistake and go to Party City days before Halloween if it can wait...lesson learned.

Rant over and moving on...Monday night I dropped Matthew and one of his co-workers off at the airport for a business trip. They were working in Pensacola, Florida this week and I picked them back up at the airport last night. I was pretty jealous when he sent me this picture the other night...this was their view at dinner
and that was as close as they got to anything "beach" related. They worked in a conference room with small windows everyday lol. I'm trying to figure out a way that Reagan and I can make it on his next work trip there ;) We are happy to have our Matthew back home, that is for sure!

Monday night after I dropped Matthew off at the airport I ran home and picked Reagan up and we headed to Murfreesboro to watch my sister's softball game. It was the start of their tournaments and sadly they lost which marked the end of their season.

My sister, Mady, stayed with me this week while Matthew was out of town. We got to catch up and got plenty of girl talk in!! I made us potato soup in the crock pot one night and we ate on it for a couple of days. We absolutely love this recipe and I plan on sharing it next week!

I am not a a MLB fan by any means. I actually don't think I've ever watched a whole game on TV nor have I been to one, but reading stories like this one just make me happy! I also know I few Cubs fans so If I had to choose I would root for them ;)

If I had to choose one makeup product to wear everyday it would be concealer every single time. No one needs to see these dark circles under my eye! I am constantly on the lookout for new concealers that 1. Cover well and 2. Last all day. I used to use Boi-ing Full Coverage Concealer but it's such a small amount and I was going through it pretty quickly, and on top of that it wasn't lasting all day. So I switched to It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Anti-Aging Concealer. It covered well too, but still wasn't really lasting as long as I would have liked for it to. After seeing Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer (whew! That was a mouth full) being talked about so much by other bloggers I decided to give it a try. It's under $10, which is a win in my book any day, so if it didn't work I wasn't out a lot of money. Well I think I have found a winner! It covers well and lasts I love it and I love that I don't have to use my fingers to apply it! And for under $10 you seriously just can't beat that. This is definitely not a sponsored review, although I wouldn't mind if Maybelline contacted me and asked me to do one ;) I'm just sharing my latest obsession! 

One night Reagan was tired and kept whining until I picked her up. It was the sweetest thing and she slept in my arms for a good bit!

Last night was night #5 she has slept all the way through the night!! I still can't believe it, but she's doing great! The other morning I was finishing up getting ready for work and I noticed she wan't playing by my feet like she usually does, so I walked into our bedroom and she was back in her crate dozing off...such a sweet girl!

I hope you all have a great weekend filled with lots of fall fun! It's supposed to be in the high 80's here...wahhh...but you better believe I'll still be in my fall attire...just sweating and acting like I'm not burning up at all ;)


  1. Sounds like you had a great week and so did Matthew - minus the conference rooms ;) Glad to hear Reagan is still sleeping through the night! Hope y'all have a great weekend and it gets cooler!

  2. Sounds like a great week - especially that potato soup with your sister! Looks delicious and family time is always a good thing!

  3. Reagan is the cutest! That potato soup looks great! Jess at Just Jess

  4. Okay so you are the second person to post about that Age Rewind and with 30 on the horizon -- I need to finally pull the trigger and test it out!

  5. I used the Age Rewind concealer once and loved it, that reminds me I should buy it again! Thanks!! I can't believe Matthew's view at dinner in FL - lucky duck!!
