How about some fun Wednesdays?!

Ok ok, enough seriousness! Today I'm finally back in the link up with Jamie @ This Kind of Love for

Lots to love this week!
Yesterday my Dad celebrated his birthday! And it wasn't just any birthday, he turned the big 5-0!!)
We went to a yummy restaurant in town and then opened presents and had cake at my parents' house. I know, I know, not that exciting, but hey, they man is getting old! (Just kidding Dad! You don't look a day over 49! ;)

Last weekend we had some visitors. I LOVE having company!And it was just the excuse I needed to get my sweet husband on the ball about getting a bed in our guest room so we can usually use it for something other than storage! Well he did, and I finally got an adorable bed set I have been wanting in there! (No pictures. I'll have to post those later). So since these poor guys were coming from their base in Barksdale, and haven't had a home cooked meal in a while I made my famous  lasagna and meatballs. 

 That's me cooking said meatballs. (I actually cheated and I had a whole pan of lasagna left from making it the night before for my brother-in-law before he left to go back to college) But still homemade and still delicious! (Actually my mom swears that Italian food is better the second day, and I kind of agree!)

So we enjoyed having company, but also love having the house to ourselves again!

I'm loving that we've decided that we're way over due for a date night so we're ordering pizza catching up on the 10 episodes of How I Met Your Mother we have on the DVR and enjoying just hanging out the three of us.

My night will probably look something like this! But I sure do love them!

I am also loving my new obsession: Pintrest. I actually avoided this for a long time so I wouldn't get hooked, but clearly it didn't work. If you aren't it yet, DON'T, or better yet, DO. But fair warning, you'll be an addict too!

Which brings me to next link-up. (Yes, I'm saving time and combing two, clever, I know!):

This is my first round at linking up with this one. I debated on a theme because there usually isn't a rhyme or reason to my pinning, but I finally settled on the obvious: FOOTBALL!
It's almost that time again, my most favorite time of year! In case, you couldn't tell I hadn't mentioned I am a DIE HARD Florida State fan! Our kick off game is against UL-Monroe on Sept. 3rd and husband and I are going! It will be our first game together in over a year since he was away for Tech school last year. So without further ADO, my favorite FSU/football pins of the week!:

Obvi the future Baby "V" will ride in style with this, especially straight to Doak Campbell Stadium!

Anyway, I could go on and on about all the amazing FSU things I've found, or you can go look for yourself and become obsessed too! Happy Pinning and Happy Wednesday, y'all!


  1. I love this picture of you dad and you. Stunning. Thanks for stopping by my blog today! :)

  2. My husband and I's idea of a night in usually involves How I Met Your Mother and cuddling with our dog, too. :)
