Wednesday Loves X3

It's Wednesday which means 3 link ups...OMG!
As usual, I'm linking up with Jamie for WILW.
{VS Fashion Show}
The fashion show was last night and as expected, it was nothing less than amazing!
I look forward to the airing of the fashion show every year and count down the days until it arrives.
I wonder how many times I will watch it in the next month.
I'm not really going to keep count because I'm sure it will be embarrassing.

I'm loving that we have started learning all about Christmas at school.
I never get sick of Christmas or anything pertaining to the holidays.
Along with teaching about Christmas, we have also started teaching Christmas songs.
Since we no longer have naps in kindergarten, we have started getting together in the hall for music on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  This is such a special time to teach the children traditional holiday songs.
It's so much fun!

I'm loving that I have 1 more day of school and then I am beach bound for the weekend!
I am so pumped to spend some time relaxing with friends...hopefully enjoying some nice weather.

I love it!


So adorable!
So pretty!
 I want this for Coral.

{Fabulous Holiday Blog Challenge}
Today's topic is holiday decorations/decor.
Link up with Neely and Amber!
I love my Christmas tree...I know I have already shared it on here, but there a few new additions.
The VS hat on top, the candy canes, a few of the bigger ball ornaments, and a very special ornament that I got in an ornament blog exchange.
 This is my sister's Christmas tree in the LR.
I know it's a little blurry.
 And this, my friends, is going to be my tree skirt once I get a chance to make it.
Hopefully before Christmas!
This is my inspiration so I hope I can pull it off.
These are my stocking holders, but I don't have mine and Coral's stockings yet.
Yes, I am buying her a stocking to fill with goodies!

 I hope you all have a lovely day!

Fabulous Holiday Blog Challenge

Day 2
Today's topic is favorite holiday tradition.
Every Christmas morning, we play John Lennon's HAPPY CHRISTMAS.
Sometimes we have even been known to sneak it on repeat...
 until our parents realize it and make us take repeat off.
I absolutely love this song and think about Christmas morning whenever I hear it.

 So this is Xmas
And what have you done
Another year over
And a new one just begun
And so this is Xmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young

A very Merry Xmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Xmas
For weak and for strong
For rich and the poor ones
The world is so wrong
And so happy Xmas
For black and for white
For yellow and red ones
Let's stop all the fight

A very Merry Xmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Xmas
And what have we done
Another year over
A new one just begun
And so happy Xmas
We hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young

A very Merry Xmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear
War is over, if you want it
War is over now

This is one of the traditions I adore, but Christmas is filled with priceless family traditions.
I love everything about the holiday season.
Happy Tuesday friends.

Miscellany Monday

 Write ramdon and link up.
I attempted a new hair style this weekend.
I have always had  trouble getting my hair to hold curl, but it worked this weekend.
I look forward to being able to do more with my hair now.
Straight hair gets old and very boring!
(Sorry for the poor quality--taken with my iphone...I really need to invest in a new camera)
My little sister, who lives in NC, came to visit for Thanksgiving.
I absolutely loved spending time with her and always try to see her as much as possible when she is here.
I always love spending time with my family on this special day.
My day started at my dad and step mom's house...
Coral got to tag along for all of the festivities as well.
On the way to my dad's.
Coral is a hit with everyone and dad, of course, was letting her on the couch which I usually discourage.
I think she is too cute to say no to sometimes.
(again poor quality)
There are always lots of laughs...
my big brother showing off his P90X yoga moves.
and lots of quality family time.
From there I headed to my mom's to have dinner.
Unfortunately, I don't have any more pics on my phone from Thanksgiving, but I'll post some when my sister shares hers with me.

{Black Friday}
Black Friday was spent eating leftovers and being lazy (no shopping for this girl).
I took a nap with these 2 adorables.
We had quite the crowd for the game.
14 Bama fans
2 Auburn fans
and 1 Bama dog
Coral sporting her new AL jersey.
Coral and mommy

Me, my cousin Lexie, and my niece Blakely.
Of course, I'm so excited that Bama pulled through and brought us a win!!!

{Fabulous Holiday Challenge}

Today's topic is favorite gift you've ever been given.

I was so behind the times getting a laptop.
I had asked my parents for one when I was in college, but didn't really expect to get one bc I have such a big family.
I knew it was kind of an expensive gift to ask for, but I got it.
I was so excited!!

{Happy Mingling}

Happy Monday lovelies!!

Friday Faves

Happy Friday lovelies!
I hope you all had a very blessed Thanksgiving.
I sure did!

I had some extra time on my hands this week so I was able to schedule today's post.
As if any of you would have missed me today...
It's time for Friday Favorites inspired by Lauren Conrad.

{Favorite Red Head}
And yes, my new red hair was inspired by this picture.
To say that I love Emma Stone would be an understatement.
I want to be like her in every way!
and so incredibly talented!!
By the way, she is an it girl in my book.
And you will only get that if you watched the video above. =)

{Favorite color combo for fall}
 I have been doing a lot of black/brown combos lately, but I love this look.

{Coffee Sweaters}
They are my favorite and such a cute little gift idea.

{Favorite Rising Stars}
These girls are absolutely precious. 
And I so wish I had an English accent.

{Favorite Song}

Time for Plenty to be THANKful for.
It's the final day and I absolutely loved participating in this fun linky.
Manic Mother

Today I am so thankful for leftovers and football!!

Happy happy Friday and good luck to those of you who are battling black Friday crowds.

It's ok that I scheduled a post for Thanksgiving Day!
I am linking up with Neely and Amber for It's OK Thursday.

So let's get started, shall we?

It's ok that I am going to stuff myself stupid today.
My diet starts tomorrow right?

That's what I usually say, but for reals this time.
I gotta look good for the beach.

It's ok that Coral chewed my phone charger to shreds.

Any advice on teaching dogs not to chew would be greatly appreciated.

It's ok that I am not going to step foot in a store on black Friday.  
I do not have the patience for that.

It's ok that I am going to be watching the IRON BOWL with 2 of the biggest Auburn fans mom and step dad.
I hope I don't regret this decision.

It's ok that I have to barricade my Christmas tree every night when I go to sleep so that Coral won't eat it.

It's ok that I went a little overboard with blog/holiday swaps this holiday season.
I've already signed up for 3...I can't promise not to do more.

I hope you all have the loveliest of Thanksgivings!
Remember to count your blessings!

Have a lovely day!

Wednesday Loves

It's Wednesday.  We all know what that means.
It's time to link up with Jamie for WILW.

I rented and watched this movie Monday night. I saw it in theater, but I'm seriously obsessed!
I LOVE both of these gorgeous individuals!

I am going to the beach in 9 days!!!
Talk about a free vacation with a certain someone.
I am pumped!

6 days away!
I will watch this on repeat for days, maybe even weeks unless it get's deleted.
I really get obsessed!

{Iron Bowl}
3 days until the big game!

I'm loving this link up with the Vintage Apple.
Here are my favorite pins this week.

Thanks for stopping by.
Who's excited for Thanksgiving tomorrow?
Yummy food, family time, and plenty to be thankful for.
