Ho Hum...back to work

Happy Monday Folks!
I hope you all had an absolutely fabulous Thanksgiving holiday!!
I did, but I am exhausted from all the traveling and was not quite ready for that alarm to go off this morning! :)
I was all over the place last week, East Tennessee, Middle Tennessee, West Tennessee, and good ol' Oxford, MS! Yes, after Turkey day I hopped in the car with my BFF and we headed down to the beautiful home of The Ole Miss Rebels! Sadly, our Rebels broke our hearts and gave the game to the stupid stinky bulldogs (yes, college football resorts to petty name calling), but we won't talk about that. I was a total slacker on the picture front, but as soon as I get some from my friends who were much better I will post.....in the mean time, here is what I am working with....
Friday Night....

And then....The Grove....my absolute favorite place in the world...I should have gotten married there....although I don't think my orange-bleeding, die-hard UT fan of a husband would have enjoyed it quite as much as I did! :)
Two of my bestestes....yes, I make up words! :)
 And the best part, I got to see my Katie P! again!!! BEEN WAY TOO LONG! :)
But it always is....and I get to see her again in 2 weeks! PLUS Meredith! YAY! Yay for engagement parties!
  AAAANNNND, I finally got to meet the new man in her life! LOOOOOVE him!!
Love you girls! Had so much fun with you!!


Then got home to my hubby and spend a lazy Sunday with him and put up Christmas decorations!
Christmas decorations make me so happy! I was exhausted and did not want to get off the couch and stop watching all of my recorded terrible TV....but then I saw the big tupperware boxes filled to the top with Christmas decorations and got really really excited!
We got a ton of fabulous Christmas stuff as gifts last year since it was our first Christmas as newlyweds and that I totally forgot so it was a like Christmas opening Christmas decortations! :) We played Christmas music, lit holiday candles and decorated the afternoon away!
I think we should have twinkle lights up year round.....they give a great ambiance! Don't you agree!?!?!?
Here is a little sneak peak......

I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday weekend as well! 


YAY for the Christmas Season!!!!!

Engagements, a Divorce, and a baby!

Okay so this week is a week of good celebrity gossip.....

First off, He finally did it....Prince William popped the question! It only took 8 years and the pressure of the entire world.....well, in his defense he did it few weeks ago, but they just announced it! How cute are they!??
there's the ring....it was Princess Diana's engagement ring...
and here's a close up!
I mean she is just so pretty and girl next door.....and she can still be gorgeous even wearing this...and make it look good! Congrats to the Royal Family!!!

Next Engagement.....

Jessica and ...... and.....whatis.........whois.......yeah, exactly.....

Eric Johnson is the soon to be Mr. Jessica Simpson....
 I don't know anything about them....but clearly...
 ...she likes him! Congrats to the happy couple!
For her sake, I really hope it is the right one for her...the poor girl deserves it......
.....I just can't help but notice how close it is to her ex's engagement announcement....

Nick and Vanessa! They are too cute! And it's about time!

On to the divorce......

I have to say I am sad about this one, they seemed so cute and happy! But damn those NBA players!
Eva is said to be filing for divorce today! While rumors float around that Tony already has in Texas. :(
 you can read about it here.


And Pink is PREGNANT!! I love it! These two are the most dysfunctional, cute, loving celebrity couples! I am so glad they are back together and now having a baby!!! Congrats!



So that is my celebrity gossip for the day! Happy Hump Day!!

My poor poor Rebels...

So for you those of you who do not follow college football....it wasn't pretty. At all. My poor poor rebels lost 14 to........uggghhh 52....it just got worse and worse and I was in a sea of orange with none of my rebels in sight....but as I told my friends "you get touch downs, I get the whiskey...." :). But, even though my heart was breaking, we, who am I kidding, I managed to still have a fabulous time....they were all beyond having a good time with their big win! :)

Any who, here are some pics from K-Town!

Friday night, heading out!
Two of my favorite people in the whole world!!!
 Game Day! Cheers to us still loving each other after the game! :) just kidding..... :)
The hubs in front of the new Neyland Statue....he was excited....
we are clearly a house divided.....got strange looks when we held hands all day....
 I found out this chair had a foot rest...and it was propped in front of the tv.....i claimed it for quite a while.....
found my Laura after the game.....the Lone Rebels!
and then Emily....would have been nice having one of them sitting next to me at the game.... :)
we still loved each other...I was dealing and he was cheering...
(I'm a poet and didn't know it... ha ha..okay sorry, I'll stop....)
 see...still proud...
she made a belt....and a "t"!
 love me some dt!
And that's all I got. Overall it was a great weekend! Sad loss for us Rebels, but hey- we did it to them last year...it was only fair (this is what I kept telling myself to get through the day...)! So here's to another 4 years before we do it again...next 2 years Georgia, then 2 years of Florida, then we welcome the Vols back to Oxford for another beat down! Yep, I am going to go ahead and predict it! :)

Hope everyone has a great day....especially all those Nashvillians out there on this gloomy rainy day!

CMA Recap

Good Morning Blogging World!!

I thought I would honor this post with some CMA action.....I have to say I never really cared that much about the CMAs before I moved to Nashville......but when you live in the city that creates, hosts, and honors them you kinda get a little excited! :)

Me and my lovely ladies have a monthly dinner club where we rotate houses and the hosts makes the main course and everyone brings a side, app, dessert, or beverage, well this month it fell on CMA night....which was perfect....and it being November, we had Thanksgiving dinner! Yes, the full load....turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, squash casserole, green bean casserole, cresecent rolls, gravy, and cranberry-apple oatneal crisp for dessert....mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!! It was deeee-lightful!

So we got all of our fabulous food and got cozied up on the couch with some wine and ready to watch!!

First, can I just say....I looooooove these two hosting! It is their 3rd year and even though Carrie's dresses are a little interesting some times...they are so good together!
Speaking of said dresses.....let's check 'em out.....

First look....I like the "theory" of this....the layers, the color.....but there is a lot of "poof" going on.........
This hot little number is just fabulous and I loooooooooooove it!
this one is cute.....
this one....i just don't know...there is a lot of fabric on that little bitty body...her legs look like toothpicks coming out of a curtain....again, I like the "theory" of it, the draping, the layers....but something didn't quite come together.....
this is pretty, love the color, the one shoulder, the grandness of it....buuuuuuuuuut, I feel like she is copying herself.....
........who can forget that massive dress she wore a few years ago.......and I loved this!
 this one....I just, I just don't know...I hated it when I saw it on the show...it looked like a flaming toga....but I don't hate it here....just not for the host of the CMAs....
and this one, no. just no. absolutely not.
Next some of my favorite red carpet moments......

Gwyneth.....oh my, that is a dress! Man, I am going to do a little prayer that I can have 2 kids and still look like that......who I am kidding I have no kids and couldn't pull that off!
Do you guys remember the blog/artical she wrote about our lovely little city?! No, well here....check it out!
This is a lot, but I love it! Absolutely love it! And I love her brunette hair change too! Maybe because I have also joined the club of brunettes a few weeks ago....
How preciously sweet is this?! I love Dierks!
I just love Katherine, yeah...we are on a first name basis....she is so cute!
Classically beautiful....I will always see her in that big lacy gown with a bog ol' veil and lacy/sparkley tennis shoes!
Okay, I have a weakness for Gossip Girl, so I love Blair/Leighton Meester....but what was going on with her...her eyebrows were all over the place when shoe presented....sunken in face.....I don't know something just didn't look right.....
I just don't know what to say about this......I don't hate it....love the dress....but that's about it...
Martina, honey....yes you have a killer body....but dress your age..........like.....
Sarah, killer body.....big heals and short dress, but she looks classy with it..

Okay I am done being Joan Rivers.... :)

On to some of my fave performances and winners.....

First, the best.....

Miss Miranda Lambert!
Female Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year, and Music Video of the Year!

Loved her performances....so fun!
and of course her sweet hubby who received Male Vocalist of the Year and Musical Event of the Year. So sweet!
Poor T-Swift didn't get any love this year....
Gwyneth...I have to say I was impressed. She got up in front of a room full of the best in the industry and sang AND played the guitar....and looked like she fit there! Very excited about seeing that movie!
And last, but not least...Mr. Paisley....Entertainer of the Year! He was so sweet and so humble accepting the award! I loved it!

So that is my uber long CMA re-cap! :) Told ya I was back with full force! :)

Hope you all have a FABULOUS day!!
