Recap: House Updates, Food & Football

Hellllo lovelies!

I hope you all are having a wonderful Sunday! It's just a beautiful morning and I'm sitting here eating a Lenny & Larry's protein cookie while I blog. (I love these cookies so much... The double chocolate and snickerdoodle are my favs!) This weekend has been pretty busy so far but I sure am glad we have tomorrow off work for Labor Day. Let's do a recap of the last few days...

Nothing too exciting happened Monday through Wednesday but once Thursday got here, the week got a little more exciting! We had a "Wear your favorite band t-shirt" day at work and it was probably my favorite "t-shirt day" thus far. (We have them quite a few weeks out of the year-- just different themes!) I pulled out one of my John Mayer t-shirts from 2010 when I went to one of his concerts for the first time! It was a little small (lol) but I didn't care. I also finally got my nails done... One of my bestie's found a color in dip powder that looks exactly like the color we used to love in shellac! (It's the perfect every day color) I had to go try it out. I loveeeee it! <3
 Speaking of the bestie (Kayla), she totally let me down and didn't wear a band t-shirt... -_- She wore an Arkansas shirt... but I got a picture with her anyway! ;) (Or two pictures... I couldn't decide which one I liked best! Ha!) 
Thursday night after work, I was literally exhausted. I sat in my big leopard chair and watched two cheesy Christmas movies! Y'all, I'm running out of cheesy Christmas movies on nextflix! Ha! If you have any suggestions on a movie I should watch next, let me know in the comments below. 

Friday morning, I headed to work and was SO ready to get the work day complete so the weekend could officially start. We got Oreo's for our "Happy Friday" treat so they literally sat there and tempted me all day. Lol. (Yes, my department gets Happy Friday treats during the summer since it's so crazy busy...Ha!)
(Side note: This coffee warmer is SO nice to have at my desk... I like to sip on my coffee and it tends to get cold really fast if I don't use it! It's totally worth the $10! You can find it here!)

Anyways, speaking of being tempted with food... A couple of us put together a "work gym" in one of the cubical's in front of me. It's kind of an inside joke... but people actually use it every now and then! Ha! One of the managers keeps bringing cookies and donuts and sits them in that particular cubical as temptation! Smh.

At lunch, I went and got my favorite Starbucks drink. (A passion fruit tea with strawberry fresher instead of water... No extra cain sugar) TRY IT!
We have this company called "Fort Smith Popcorn Co." that comes to our office every Friday. I finally caved and bought a couple bags of popcorn and it is SUPER tasty!

That night, my parents came over and helped Tyler and I take everything off our walls and push everything to the center of our living room or move furniture in to another room. It looked like a disaster zone! (P.S. I got a picture of the whole book case that I mentioned in my last recap post!)
I will post some updated pictures once the living room is completely painted!

Saturday morning, the paint guy got to the house around 9AM so I headed to get some donuts and a coffee! (#nomakeupandall #reallife)

I met my mom for lunch... We had some mexican food and then ran around town for a bit! <3

Later that evening, we headed to my parents house for dinner and to watch the first ALABAMA football game of the season! *Roll Tide*  We rode with the top down and the weather was beautiful! I also brought my laptop so I could work on some blog stuff...

My mom's front door was looking very "fall-ish" and I was loving it! 

She made a super delicious meal and then we watched the football game! (They WON! Good job boys!) 
We came home and crashed... I was so tired for some reason! 

Anyways, like I said at the's Sunday morning now and the paint guy just got here again. I hate that we are missing church today but he asked if he could come over today and paint again so he can hopefully spend time with his family tomorrow for the holiday. Luckily our church has the service online via live stream so I'm planning on watching it. I'm really hoping he can get the house completely done today! We decided not to paint our bedroom... The color turned out to be a lot brighter (aka whiter) than what I expected. I think it will be okay in the other rooms (I sure do hope!) but I think we will wait and find something else for the bedroom. 

I hope you all have a fantastic Sunday and an even more fantastic Labor Day tomorrow! I sure do plan on it. :) 

Love always,

"Go the extra mile... It's never crowded!"
