Party for My Mama

So even though I know I said I was going to start the list postings in October, I am getting a head start on it because I probably won't have time to it tomorrow. (Also, I don't have a scanner set up at my own house to do this from...)

I realize my bike drawings are a bit elementary, but I'm ok with that. And I figured yall would be too :) Maybe for the next post I'll attempt to make it a little cuter and a little more creative. But for now, this is what we got...

Love yall. Have a good weekend!

Planning Ahead

Lately I've actually been FOLLOWING all of the blogs I've been following. Know what I'm sayin? But for real - I love reading other people's blogs. Even strangers can be interesting and have fun ideas. So I've gotten a few ideas for the future of my blog based on read a few random blogs over the last month of so.

My plan is to blog every day in October and November - with a different theme for both months. For the month of October, I am going to do a cute little list every day, which I borrowed the idea from this fun blog. (I doubt mine will be anywhere as cute since I'm not that great at doodling, but we'll see how it goes!) And then in November I plan to reattempt the photo-a-day challenge. But I'm thinking it might be a little easier this go round, cuz I can now take really nice pictures with my phone, instead of having to worry about an actual camera all the time! :)

I just wanted to announce that I'm super excited for some Seminole football today!! I've been out of town the last two weekends, so I've unfortunately missed everything related to college football. But not this weekend. And I can't wait! I've wore my Seminole attire and accessories all day at work to get myself all psyched up, and it's been working. I'm so ready for some Seminole football!!

Pandora Comedy is Good for Road Trips

Labor Day weekend was super fun and amazing. Instead of sharing every tiny detail though like I usually do, I'll just try to hit the high notes...

Drove to Charlotte, North Carolina with Jeff all day Friday
Went to IKEA - amazing! My first trip there, and it was the bomb
Stayed my first night with some of Jeff's family in Charlotte on an air mattress
Picked up Gabe and Ryan early Saturday and drove to Hinton, West Virginia
Spent time with all sorts of Jeff's family and friends for two days
Played at a park right next to a dam
Went to a little water fall on the New River in West Virginia
Ate entirely too much yummy food
I slept on an air mattress for a few too many days - while Jeff and the boys shared a full-size bed down the hall
Listened to comedy on Pandora - awesome for road trips, and so freaking funny
Drank a lot of coffee/caffeine/energy drinks
Had so much fun playing with those precious little boys :)
Took the boys back early Monday morning - sad times
Drove back to Tally super slow with stops along the way for Jeff to show me around his old stomping grounds
Had an amazingly fun weekend with my boyfriend and his super cute kids :)

And here's a collage of mostly the boys, but a few other ones too. They're just so stinking photogenic, so it's hard to take photos of much else when they're around! ;)

Just learned a new fact, and it's precious, so I want to share it...

Sea otters hold hands while they're sleeping so that they don't drift away from each other :)
