It's The Most Wonderful Time of The Year

I'm feeling extra happy on this Friday (probably because the NFL kicked off last night and it's like Christmas to me!) so I'm going to cut right to the chase. Here's what is rocking right now:

-- Seeing a sweet blog-turned-real-life friend and her ADORABLE belly! Allison and I were able to grab dinner and talk all things babies, blogging, careers, church and more this week. So happy this weird blog world introduced us and so CRAZY that the next time we get together I'll probably be meeting her son, eek!!

-- This is both awesome and terrible. Awesome that I'm going to a Reds game tonight with Jared and our besties. Terrible that this is my FIRST BASEBALL GAME OF THE YEAR. Oh my gosh, how did I let that happen? I have no clue- but we will surely have a blast tonight. There are post-game fireworks, too!

-- This dinner is partially awesome, partially NOT! Remember those "noodles" I mentioned Monday? We made them and served with garlic parmesan chicken and... well, I just didn't like the noodles. They didn't taste like much of anything so it wasn't that- but they were more chewy than a regular noodle and I couldn't get past the texture. However, my chicken was delicious. Win some, lose some!

-- Stopping in at CVS for batteries and finding that they were buy one get one free. Score! Batteries aren't cheap at all so I stocked up. Plus the summer dollar bin stuff was all 70% off so I got a huge pack of colorful straws for a QUARTER. Straws make any drink more fun, amiright?

-- Cashing in my Swagbucks for loads of giftcards this week was super fun. Now I can start my Christmas shopping. Yes, in September! It makes life so much less stressful to start early, plus I'll probably get better deals by not waiting until the holiday craziness is upon us! I've already started on my niece's gifts!

-- Football is HERE! Like you all didn't know that already. My nerves/excitement/anxiousness over seeing my guys play this coming Sunday is through the roof and I cannot wait to eat my feelings all day long ;)

What are you loving this Friday? And who are you rooting for this weekend??

  1. When did you go to CVS, meaning is that deal still going on because we are in dire need of batteries and I forgot to check ads this past weekend.

    Yay for football! In fact, that's what my post today is about :)

  6. Yay for the SB gift cards... feels good to cash them in and have them in hand, right?! Thank YOU to getting me on the bandwagon... love love love free money! Ryan wants custom Nike cleats for Christmas ($140!) and thanks to SB (and your help!) I already have them paid for. Boom.

  9. Yes for football! I feel the exact same way...excited and nervous. Thankfully my guys pulled out the win last night so I'm happy. Have fun at the Reds game!

  10. I haven't been to a baseball game in far too long. I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels that way with straws. I always want one & people usually look at me funny.

  11. I'm SO happy that football season has started...even though the Packers looked like complete crap last night! Ugh! They better get that defense together before I beat some heads together! Grrr!

  12. Have fun at the Reds game! I'm super jealous, especially because of the fireworks. I only made it to two Reds games this year and it makes me sad. As always, WHO-DEY?!

  13. Yay for Swagbucks! My goal next year is to never cash them in until I get toward the end of the year and then cash them in all at once for Christmas money! :)
