Fall + Football + Weekends = Perfection

This weekend ROCKED. I'm sure there's a more descriptive way to tell you that, but when you say something "rocks" I just feel like it gets my point across pretty quickly. Jared and I had discussed all the various things we wanted to do over the weekend and we accomplished every single one of them. Mostly fun things were on the list, but a couple adult/responsibility things got done too.
We saw The Martian in theaters- SO good. I'm a Matt Damon fan in general, but this movie was pretty great. I didn't read the book so I have nothing to compare it to but the storyline was great and even though it was a long movie it didn't really feel like it to me. Anyone else seen/read it??

Plenty of other fun happened involving board games, movies, shopping and decorating for fall. We just got a Gordman's in our area which I'd never heard of until now. Think TJMaxx/Marshalls kinda stuff (and prices!) but much larger. We found a couple new additions for our fall decor, a couple gifts for family and finally two new throw pillows that didn't cost a fortune. Our house just feels extra cozy now with more fluffy pillows and with all our fall stuff out and on display.

I love our table runner!

And of course any weekend is significantly better when your football team wins. Jared and I watched Ohio State move to 5-0 on Saturday and then the Bengals beat Kansas City to move to 4-0 on Sunday! It was a really good sports weekend in our household. Really, really good. I wore nothing but sports gear all weekend long and I'm not ashamed.

Today marks 8 straight days in the office with another 11 to go before I get a day off (but who's counting?!) so if you noticed the permanent bags under my eyes, you know why. As long as my team keeps winning though? It's all worth it. WHODEY!

  3. My brother just saw The Martian too and said it was awesome, and he read the book and said they did a great job adapting it. I mean, you can't go wrong with Matt Damon? The rest of your weekend looks perfectly wonderful! Jason and I are in need of a good old fashion game night! :) And yay Bengals!

  6. Yay for a good football weekend! My Jags didn't win (honestly not a shock at all, lol!) BUT my Gators beat Ole Miss very convincingly and they looked awesome out there, so that more than made up for it! :) Yay for new fall decor!

  7. There's nothing better than watching your team win, especially when they're starting off great for the season! All of your fall decor is so cute! I especially love the scarecrow!

  8. WHO DEY?!!!!! I definitely did our touchdown tradition with myself, Bahah. Clapped the air, clapped my own hands, and clapped the air. LOL! Love the fall decor! Caleb said Gordmans was awesome! I need to check it out!!!! :)

  9. I thought of you and Kayla when you guys beat our other MO team.

    Gordmans is fun, you have to go at the right, and odd, times to find random deals.

  10. Since the Vikings are 2-2 after yesterday's loss, I love seeing the Bengals doing so good! I always think of you and Kayla when I see them on highlights :)

  11. I LOVE Gordman's! There are only 2 in Indiana (I think), and the nearest is an hour away. But I do love their prices & selection of stuff. They have cute décor stuff! I have yet to get out anything fall; I had planned on decorating Trey's house, but it needs a major clean and there just hasn't been time now that we have cows. lol

  14. We want to see The Martian so badly! My husband read the book, and I am randomly a huge fan of all space exploration movies. We need to get a babysitter! Glad to hear you liked it. Also, I'm loving the fall decor. Nice choices :)

  15. Minot, ND got a Gordmans late last year and that's where I do most of my shopping - I love it! There is no shame in wearing atheletic gear all weekend either - most weekends I alternate between wearing Rider gear or Blue Jay gear. I won't know what to wear when the seasons are over! haha

    I completely failed and didn't get my fall and Halloween decor up on the weekend :( I have plans to watch Hocus Pocus and finally get them up tonight though!

  16. I'm happy to hear good news about The Martian, because I am looking forward to (hopefully) going to see it in the near future! And oohh my gosh, that table runner is fall perfection. So jealous of this "Gordon's" that you speak of. Home decor that doesn't break the bank is key!

  17. I really want to see the Martian. I'm a big Matt lover as well :) And wasn't it just a really great football weekend in Ohio?? :)

  18. I LOVE Gordmans, and I have to keep myself away because I want to buy all the things! They always have such good deals and such fun seasonal stuff! Yay for a good sports weekend, it's awesome your teams are killing it this year. Your cute fall stuff reminds me I still need to get my decorations out!

  19. Those fall decorations are so stinking cute! We need to step up our game and get some decorations out. Happy Monday :)

  20. Yes, girl! YES! I'm right with you on the sports train. It was completely worth the chilly temperatures and drizzle to sit through that (nearly-heart-attack-inducing) Ohio State game! The Bengals victory was enjoyed in the comfy, cozy atmosphere of our local BW3s. Hahaha...anything to get away from the Colts fans! I can't wait to see the Martian - let's just say I like Matt Damon's apples just fine. ;) Sounds like a perfect weekend!

  24. I knew you would be pumped about your Bengals. I love that y'all got some good shopping done. I need to be decorating for fall but I keep finding decorations I like that are way to expensive. I need a hobby lobby run.

  25. I love that table runner! I love shopping at Winner's (Canadian equivalent to Marshall's) they always have the best stuff and it's so much cheaper than a regular department store!

  32. First of all, I love the Fall decorations. Very cute.

    Secondly, I too wore sports attire all weekend but my weekend didn't end as well as yours - the Packers won but those stinkin' Badgers - grrr! I was even at the game so I was even more upset. Sigh...

  33. Ohhhh Gordman's sounds amazing! I want one here!!! I love all the stuff you found. It is a great weekend when your team wins, I agree! Gosh, 11 more days? Girl you are making me tired just hearing it! I wish you the best the next 11 days...and lots of great coffee/caffeine!

  35. All of your decor is so cute! I'm glad Ohio had a good sports weekend because Minnesota had the opposite ha.

  36. Man, I am so jealous of the good sports weekend. Penn State won, which was great, but man my Detroit Lions are really struggling this year. They have the same record as the Begals, except opposite....SMH. Not even 1 win!
