My mums are in full bloom, but I'm afraid the heat wave we had this past week was almost too much for them, I can see some of the buds turning brown towards the back :( I've been watering the and putting ice cubes in regularly, but with the temperature almost to 90 degrees and the sun it has about done them in. Hoping they at least make it until Thanksgiving, but that might be pushing it.

- We had a pretty good week! We handed out candy to the cutest trick or treaters, we voted, we flipped back and forth between the CMA awards and the World Series, we took Reagan to her next vet visit, we played outside with her, Reagan got her first bath, and tonight is date night...yay!

Obligatory voting picture! I am so glad we early voted, I remember voting in the last election and waiting in line forever to finally cast my vote. This year we only had to wait about 5 minutes- not bad at all!

We didn't get a chance to make it up to the mountains this year, but this article is making me want to take a PTO day and spend a long weekend up there with my man!!!! I've been to Gatlinburg plenty of times and during different seasons and I have to admit that the fall and Christmas is the best time to be there! If you have been on the fence about taking a trip to Gatlinburg, just do it! You won't regret it. There is so much to do and to see there. We were there last Halloween and it was so fun. You can read about some of our past trips to Gatlinburg HERE, HERE, and HERE!

Reagan has recently started doing this thing where she'll go stand in front of the couch and then start whining until we put her up there. She usually only does this when she's tired and once she's up there she'll make herself right at home and go to sleep. It's the cutest thing and cracks us up because we never really put her on the couch before she started doing this so we didn't even realize she liked the couch, but she does! This picture is of her after she got up on the couch and went to sleep, so sweet!

- Have any of y'all heard of ThredUP? I recently received some dresses from them and love them! They are the perfect addition to my fall wardrobe and all of them were name brand but definitely not at name brand prices! You can use to code: COCKTAIL50 for 50% off first-time orders, discount up to $50.

Reagan had her next vet visit yesterday afternoon and she had to get her next shot. The vet told us she would probably be sleepier the rest of the night, but we didn't see a big difference...until the middle of the night. She woke us up 4 times, we think it was sore where she got the shot and every time she moved to get comfortable she would bump it and let out a little whimper, it was pitiful and we felt so bad for her. The vet said yesterday that she would only be sore for a little bit, so we're hoping our girl feels better. She has been playing/running around like normal, it just hurts when she bumps her little shot area. :( She actually did really well during her shot though, we were proud lol

The weather is finally starting to cool down, and I think (really hope) it's going to stay that way! Yay for finally feeling like fall again!


  1. Your front porch is beautiful! Love how much it screams fall :) Gatlinburg looks like so much fun for Christmas time!

  2. I love your front porch!! It's so adorable. And I love that door color! Hope you have a great weekend :)

  3. your porch is super cute and of course so is the pup. i've never been to tennessee, but it's on my list.

  4. Caleb and I actually are taking 2 days off AFTER Christmas and thinking about Gatlinburg. I've just heard the best things about it in the holiday season! It looks beautiful! Have a great weekend, girly!

  5. Your mums still look great! Mine died super quickly last year because the heat and sun - I didn't have time to plant and kill them again this year lol Gatlinburg is the absolute best this time of year - my parents took us all the time when we were kids and we always had a blast! So glad Reagan is doing better after her shots - no fun!

  6. I can't get over how cute your front door/entry way looks! Even if the weather is cooperating for mums!
