It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year! [Link up with VTIM]

The time is upon us!!
Time for wearing crimson and white every Saturday.
Time for Chris and I to begin our yearly agreement of “Saturdays you can have football all day and I won’t bother you but Sundays you’re my you-know-what”.
Time for Velveeta/Rotel cheese dip to flow like chunky wine.
Time to hide nearly all of my Auburn friends on facebook for a few months (or delete them if they get obnoxious).
Time to go to church hoarse on Sunday from screaming so much the day before.
It’s time for college football, yall!

Tomorrow the family and I (minus Chris because he’s not a Bama fan so we don’t see him much on football Saturdays) are driving to Atlanta for Bama’s first game of the year against West Virginia. It’s being held at the Georgia Dome and I’ve never been to a dome field! That’s one thing to mark off my bucket list. I’ve heard the Georgia Dome is really something to see. And I’m sure it will beat baking in the Alabama sun for hours on a regular gameday!

I know a lot of girls will be going decked out and fussed up (because that’s just what they do) but here’s basically what I plan on wearing right down to the shoes.

Pinterest
Casual and super comfortable. I had to buy a new shirt from Target (similar) since all my other ones have gotten a bit snug in the middle. Can’t imagine why. One thing is for sure, when CT gets here he will have a buffet of gameday apparel to choose from (even though we know he’ll be a smart baby and choose all crimson).


Happy First Weekend of College Football to you and enjoy that three day weekend!
Rooooll Tide!

2014 Emmys - Good, Bad and Ugly

At seven o'clock Monday night we had eaten dinner, I had washed my face and put on PJs, and we were hunkered down on the couch with drinks, snacks and one cat to watch the three hour long Emmy Awards.
Some of my favorite moments were:
-Andy Samberg dressed as Joffery from GOT crashing Lena Headey’s presentation. It’s weird seeing her a) with short hair and b) smiling.
-Bryan Cranston making out with Julia Louis-Dreyfus. I’d love to know if she knew that was about to happen.
-Billy Crystal’s eulogy of Robin Williams. What a great selection of clips to show of him. And the footsteps at the end that faded to black OMG. Chris and I just sat smiling and crying at the same time.
-When Breaking Bad basically swept all the major drama categories!!  Walter White lives on!!

Now on to what really matters!

The Good:
good emmy fashion, best dressed
Taylor Schilling - Love this.  In a sea of pale colors hers stood out.  And her hair and makeup were perfect.  She looked like a star. // Sarah Hyland - So young and chic and a perfect color combo!  She's impressing me more and more on the red carpet. // Zooey Deschanel - I think this is the first time in three years she hasn't worn pale blue.  And she couldn't have picked a better color if she tried.
Honorable Mentions: Amy Poehler, Natalie Dormer, Lucy Liu, and Lizzy Caplan.

The Bad:
bad emmy fashion, worst dressed, 2014 emmys
Julie Bowen - I always look forward to seeing what she’s wearing but this one really disappointed me.  It’s too casual for my taste and the print is odd. // Mayim Bialik – I like this girl a lot but everything about this aged her, from the cut to the hair to the necklace.  The color is stunning but I’ve seen her do far better. // Julia Roberts – Loved it…until I saw it from the waist down. Get a long gown, hold your shoulders back and dress like the movie star you are.

The Ugly:
Ugly Emmy Fashion, Worst Dressed, Emmys 2014
Yael Stone – Just wrong on different levels and super tacky. // Betsy Brandt – Her hair and makeup are spot and it’s definitely an improvement from last year…but that print put her right back on the Ugly list. // Lena Dunham – I can’t tell if she’s not trying at all or if she’s trying too hard.  I can appreciate some pink ombre feathers, but this is a joke.

What did you think of the Emmy fashion?  Who were some of your favorites?

Ten on Tuesday - Emmys, Good Jeans, and a Rage


one. It was a great night to be a Breaking Bad fan at the Emmys!!  Chris and I were SO happy they swept their acting categories and took home the big one.  As far as the fashion goes, stay tuned for a Good, Bad and Ugly post!

two. Saturday after we spent the morning consolidating junk in the basement and cleaning out the nursery, I went shopping with Kaylen for business attire for a class. We must've walked miles around that mall. I was wore OUT Sunday.

three. American Eagle had a really great sale and I got a pair of light wash skinny jeans for $26. Score for Alyssa.

four. I see pictures like this and think...if I was single I could SO live in a studio apartment.

five. I realized only last week that this coming Monday is Labor Day.  Thank you Lord, for unexpected three day weekends.

six. So the VMA's Sunday night were kind of a snooze fest. A few notes: T-Swift now just looks like another bimbo. Miley Cyrus needs to work on her fake crying face. I didn't think Beyoncé was EVER going to get off the stage, but I couldn't help but go "awww" when Jay-Z and Blue came up on stage with her. Common's comments made me roll my eyes. When I first saw Katy Perry and her guy I told Chris "Britney and Justin wore that same thing in like 2002!...wow it's really sad I know that".

seven. Last night was Taco Bell night and Chris learned that this quesadilla/burrito mix...is no good.

eight. Haha


nine. Nesting has officially started. I looked at a bare wall the other day and thought "...I could put something there..."

ten. Since I got pregnant and hormonal I feel like this is how I wake up sometimes.

My Maternity Style (In My Head)

Long before I got pregnant I always said when I did, I would be pregnant and stylish. I built this whole bangin' wardrobe in my head thanks to Pinterest. So far, and granted I'm not that big yet, it's been my own jeans held together with a belly band (a life saver I found at Buy Buy Baby) and a few good hand-me-downs (thank you, Tracie). But I've still got a while to go and plenty of time to build my big, round maternity closet!

(One of my favorite fashion bloggers just happens to be nearing the end of her pregnancy and she has put together a fantastic post on how to build said wardrobe without breaking the bank.)

In a dream world here are some of my favorite maternity outfits.  I want this first outfit more than any other on this list.  It's so effortless and adorable!:

And yes, I expect a pair of black jeggings and a motorcycle jacket to make me look just like Giselle...
