{Football, Showers & Get Well Wishes}

Y'all - there are only 66 days until Christmas.  66!!  How did that happen?!?  But I have to admit - I'm kinda excited.  Although I love all my pumpkins, I am so ready for Christmas trees & Santa.  I saw last night where the Christmas movies on the Hallmark Channel start on October 31st....you can bet my TV will be on channel 1365 for the next 2 months. =)

It was once again another busy weekend, but I got to check off a few more things on my "to do" list.  Here's a quick {extended} weekend recap.

At lunch on Thursday, our local clinic hosted a Breast Cancer Pink Out Rally on the courthouse square.  A group of ladies from work & I went to show support for our friend & coworker who recently finished her treatments.  Thankfully her year long journey is over & she is cancer free!
My nephew plays flag football for our church football team and so Nola & I went to watch him Thursday evening.  Nola has been a little wild child lately {the cooler weather maybe?!?}, but she was so well behaved down there.  She sat so still and watched the game & LOVED it would the little kids would come over & pet her.
Friday evening my mom & I headed down to Texas Children's in Katy to visit my niece.  She has been in the hospital since last Saturday with what was eventually diagnosed as a staph infection in the bone of her heel.  They still have no idea where she got it from, but she was a sick little girl. Thankfully she is on the mend & got to come home today!
I spent all day Saturday mowing & cleaning house because I hosted a shower at my house on Sunday.  In between it all, I watched the Aggies lose to Alabama.  At first it looked like it might be replay of last year's 59-0 stomping, but then they gave us hope...only to turn around & give up 3 pick 6's.  That pretty much sealed the deal. 

Sunday was the shower & it turned out really nice if I do say so myself.  It was for one of my best friends from elementary school {so we've been friends for 25+ years...how is that even possible?!}.  My house isn't big so I was a little worried about how everyone would fit, but we ended up having the perfect amount of people.  It was just enough to be nice but not crowded & I think everyone had a great time.  Carol & Rob are getting married on New Year's Eve {how fun is that?!?} & I can't wait!
 
{She gave us each a Bath & Body Works candle for hosting...LOVE! My absolute favorite candles.}

And by this morning - this is how Nola & I both felt.  We were both exhausted & neither one of us wanted to get out of bed.  She laid in bed SNORING until I woke her up at 7:30 to put her outside.  This week is pretty low key until Thursday & then we leave for our A&M/Ole Miss road trip.  I'll let you take one guess as to what the weather is supposed to be like there this weekend.  Rain, rain, & more rain.  Seriously - I don't know how we get so unlucky.  But, I am so looking forward to getting away from all the stress here so if it rains the entire weekend - so be it.  But, if I do drive 11 hours & sit in the pouring rain - then we better win!! Just sayin'.  =)

  1. What a great weekend...minus the loss. :/ I'm glad we had an off week and hoping we can pull out a W against Auburn on Saturday. How sweet of you to host a shower for your friend, the wedding sounds like it will be a blast!
