the florida state university

video

I hope everyone enjoyed that lovely chant as they opened up this page.  It is the best sound in the entire world to hear from 82,000 people.  

I grew up on Florida State football.  
I love Florida State football.  
I am very passionate about Florida State football.

These things might sound weird coming from a girl, but I was raised by a man who loved this team more than life its self.  This man didn't have any sons to share this love with, so his two daughters got this freakishly weird love of college football.  

This man is my dad.

Even though my dad cannot enjoy the game like he use to, I like to think that we carry on that small tradition.  This is for you dad, your two little girls, acting like you; yelling at the television screen for bad calls, smack talking to florida & miami fans, & always believing in our team no matter what the situation.

Go NOLES!

five things to accomplish ...

... for the last week of september.. 


September has come & gone too fast, due to the fact that I was in Florida for 10 days.  I do have a check list of things to accomplish before the end of this week!  Fingers crossed, I can get all of it done.

1. Bake Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls.  I am not a cook but I have been craving a sweet snack, so we will see if I can make them just as good as the Pioneer Woman bakes them.

2. Try out the No Lie Brewery with Cody

3. Buy this, this, & dream about buying this.





4. Decorate the trailer in fall decorations,  I am using this as inspiration.

5. And jam out to this song.. Yes, I am a Taylor Swift fan, please hold your judgment



Have an awesome Monday, people!!

magic kingdom fun

When I was planning out my trip home, my mamma mentioned a trip to Magic Kingdom for the day,  & I was all in for the adventure!    Magic Kingdom has to be the happiest place in the world.  While walking into the park, my mamma, started jumping around & yelling with excitement.. I mean can you tell where I get this love of Magic Kingdom from..??

I will say fall in Florida, only happens like 1 day out of the month of September, I have pictures to prove this.  And the day we went down to visit Magic Kingdom, it was HOT & HUMID.  With that being said, my hair ended up in a top bun.

 However, the plus side is, Magic Kingdom has the prettiest fall decorations.

annual best friend trip

Once a year me & my three best friends make a trip down to St. Augustine to shop, eat, & chat about anything and everything.  When I say my best friends, I mean my best friends, we have been friends since we were in diapers.  As a group, we can be super supportive and then turn around to be brutally honest, I think this is the best kind of friendship.

We have done this trip for about three years now, and every year is usually the same but we enjoy this beautiful little town & our friendship that continues to grow.  I love these girls so much & I can't wait until next year.

a fall day in florida

Being home with my family for the past ten days has been amazing & exhausting all at the same time.

When I walked out of the airport, I was hit with the Florida humidity (something that I was getting use to not having around in Washington).  It took a while trying to get use to the hottness, you would think that since I have lived in this weather for 24 years it wouldn't bother me.. Well it does ..

The last day of my vacation home, I woke up to 70 degree weather and hardly any humidity.  I felt like I was back in Washington.  So in honor of it being a fall like day, I decided to dress like one.
