Happy Wednesday y’all! I hope you’re week has been great so far!

Today I am talking about my two favorite things; football and fashion! I love the SEC and being from the south I felt that it was only fitting to throw together some outfits for game day. I will be putting together some cute outfits for each South Eastern Conference team starting with the West. Next week I will be sharing outfit ideas for the East. I am so excited, let's do this!

One // Two // Three // Four // Five // Six

I had to start with the best.. obvi! Roll Tide Y'all!


One // Two // Three // Four // Five

.. And now the worst team. HAHA! As much as I hate to admit it, I really love the navy and orange combo (don't tell my daddy)! Look at those darling shoes!

One // Two // Three // Four // Five

I love Texas A&M's colors. I also threw in that watch because the black and gold together is STUNNING!

One // Two // Three // Four 

This one was hard because a lot of the same things you saw in Texas A&M's outfit ideas you could really use for Mississippi State also. Again, such a great color and one that is very popular during the Fall and football season!

One // Two // Three // Four // Five

LSU doesn't have my favorite colors but these pieces I found I LOVE. Especially the mustard colored cardigan which is perfect for Fall regardless of what team you cheer for!


One // Two // Three // Four // Five

How cute is all of these pieces? I again, can't help but love these flats for the team with the razorback on the bow.


One // Two // Three // Four // Five

I love Ole Miss colors because it is so patriotic! How cute is that plaid dress??

Well there you have it! I hope you loved all these outfit ideas! Talk to you on Friday!

Happy Monday y'all. Boy was my weekend PACKED! I was somehow talked into going to a late movie on Friday the 13th and y'all it was actually really good. The movie is called 'Happy Death Day' and you should go see it :) 
I then woke up at 5am the next morning to catch the sunrise at Cocoa Beach with a friend and it was stunning!
Needless to say I was desperate for a relaxing Sunday after church at home to catch up on my baking and my homework piling up. It is no secret that I love all things Rice Krispie treats. They are my favorite. They are gluten free. They taste like heaven. They aren't too rich. They taste like heaven. The End.

Enjoy this festive, and easy recipe y'all!

Ingredients:
6 C crispy rice cereal
6 C mini marshmallows
5 Tbsp. butter
orange gel food coloring
dark chocolate candy coating
white chocolate candy coating

Directions:
In a large pot over medium heat, melt the butter. 
Add the marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat and add the food coloring until you have reached the desired color.
Stir in the cereal until fully coated.
Press into a 11" x 13" baking dish and let set for several minutes at least.
Once the treats have set, cut into triangles and *melt the melting chocolates as direction on the packaging. 
Dip the top of the triangle in the dark chocolate and the tip in the white chocolate. Place on wax paper to harden.
Once the chocolate has set, store the treats at room temperature in an airtight container up to three days.

*I used the Ghiradelli melting chocolates and they made this treat about 133899 times better! 


Enjoy and Happy Fall!!

Happy Friday y'all! I am so ready for this weekend! My friend and I are going to the beach at sunrise tomorrow so I will be tucking in early tonight since I will be up literally before the crack of dawn tomorrow. :) I do have a few favorites from the week to share with y'all and I want to know your favorites too!

One // Riverdale Is Back
Y'all know I loved the first season on Netflix and it is now back on CW. I have heard some rumors about aspects of the show they are going to change so I don't know if they introduce some of those changes if I will continue watching, but I did really enjoy the first episode of Season 2! 

Two // Teachers Pay Teachers
So this was a discovery that has taken WAY too much of my time this week. Teachers Pay Teachers aka. TPT is a site where teachers can upload and sell resources for other educators to download and use in their classrooms. I have heard my professors talk about this site a little here and there but I never knew the extent of it and WOW. This will definitely come in handy when I am a teacher soon. I have already picked out the classroom décor bundles that I want and know I will be snagging as well as selling a lot of resources on there. What a great concept!

Three // Epcot Food & Wine Pandora Set
I haven't gone to Epcot's Food and Wine festival yet because it is just too stinkin hot outside for my sister and I to spend all day outside at Disney, but we have plans to go in a few weeks and this Pandora charm set is SO cute! I might need to add these to a black leather bracelet of my own after I go!

Four // Star Wars The Last Jedi Trailer
How many of y'all saw The Last Jedi trailer the second it came on? I am not a huge Star Wars super fan by any means but my dad and I do enjoy seeing the new movies so we were pretty excited for this one to come out. 

Five // Harney and Sons “Paris” Tea
Okay y’all I am really trying hard to get into drinking tea. It is always nice to have a hot cup of coffee but I wanted to try tea instead since they are healthier. This one is SO a good! I don’t know if I like the taste or the SMELL better! It smells exactly how I would imagine a Paris cafe smelling.. heaven!!  I drink it plain but am going to experiment this week with different flavor teas and mixing some with milk and what not! Tell me your favorite tea flavors and tricks PLEASE!!

Well there you have it! A quick and short favorites post for ya! Enjoy your weekend y’all!

Hey y’all!! Happy Wednesday! You may have seen my quick snap yesterday on Instagram of this outfit and it is my FAV! This top is from a local boutique and these shoes are absolute perfection! I have linked everything I can find. Happy shopping y'all!


For The Shirt:
Here is the Facebook Page of the local boutique and here is their website. I don't see this shirt listed yet but you can message them and ask. They do ship from the store.

Can you tell I'm a little obsessed with these shoes? :)

I hope you have a happy day!

Hi y'all! I can't tell you how excited I am to finally be sharing these book reviews with y'all. I normally have a hard time really getting into books with a story that spans over a long time but this book was an exception. These three books span across a little over two years and I was hooked the whole time. I have heard so many great things about this series and was so eager to read it. I am going to try and keep this as to-the-point as possible. Here we go.

I read the first book in about two weeks which is kind of a long time for me. It took me a while to get hooked. Somewhere halfway through I got strongly attached to the characters and couldn't put it down. It felt kind of cheesy and very "highschoolery" but that is partially what made it so endearing. I quickly bought the second two books on Amazon.

This book is about a high school girl who has written love letters to five boys in total, the five boys she has "loved". They were not meant to ever be sent to the guys but when they mysteriously get sent to each boy she wrote them for, her life changes drastically. This book shares a lot about different family dynamics and relationships. Like I said, it takes a while to get hooked but once you do, you can't put it down.

Rate: 3.5/5


I don't know if it was because I had to wait for the books to come in the mail (and Hurricane Irma slowed down UPS) but after I receieved it in the mail, I wasn't like going crazy over the second book. Similar to the first book, 'P.S. I Still Love You' didn't hook me until about halfway through. I think this was mainly because of the week break I unfortunately had to wait to start the second book. This book had SO many unexpected twists though and I LOVED it! I finished and quickly jumped to the third book.

This book is essentially a continuation of the first book so I can't exactly go into to much detail about it without spoiling the first book. It is however exciting and just as great as the first one.

Rate: 3.5/5


This was my favorite book by far and every part of the story came to a perfect close. It wasn't a super emotional ending or anything and was still slightly cheesy but I read it in 24 hours and was VERY satisfied with the ending. This whole story was just SO sweet and innocent and had such dynamic characters which I wasn't expecting.

This book again, of course, is the continuation of the story. This book has a perfect ending and again really dives into the struggles with relationships in high school and certain families. I loved this book the most because they were graduating high school at this point in the story so the book seemed to mature as the characters did which I really liked.

Rate: 4/5 


     

Well there you have it. If you are looking for a light, fun, girly read then DEFINITELY pick up this series! I highly recommend! What series have you read recently? Let me know!

Also, I am trying to get better about keeping up with my Goodreads so if you want to see what I am reading, what I have read, and what I want to read, follow me here. Leave your username below too so I can see what you have marked to read! I love recommendations!

Happy Friday again y'all. This week went so fast and my homework load was significantly lighter which was SO nice. I did a ton of reading which is the very best way to spend time in my opinion. A book review post is coming soon! Today, we are talking my favs from the week.

My Favorite Things This Week:

Planning!
I love this Fall kit that I used in my planner this past week. It is so festive and Little Miss Paperrie has so many stickers in her kits. I don't use kits from people very often but sometimes I will either be sent kits and stickers or get coupon codes and it is always a treat to use them. I mean how cute does this week look?


The VOICE!
This show is BACK y'all and I am PUMPED! This is my sister, mom, and I's favorite show at the moment! It is a singing contest show with a super interesting platform and dynamic. I recommend watching!


My Favorite Moments This Week:

This Cool Weather

Y'all there was actually a breeze for a few days this week and it almost felt like Fall.. almost! But I will take it! Being able to wear shorts and a blouse without sweating was a definite favorite from this week.


My Favorite Fashion Finds This Week:

Pink Bow Mules!
They are finally online y'all! I am so happy that my favorite shoes from Target that I shared a few weeks ago, are finally listed on their website. You need these for Fall y'all!

Well I hope y'all have a great weekend! Talk to you soon!

Hi everyone! I hope y'all are having a great day! Todays post is a random one but is about possibly one of my favorite topics and that would be my favorite children's books. I am sure you already know my obsession with children's books and goals to publish one myself but I thought it could be fun to share my all time favs in one post.
P.S. I am studying in college right now to become an Elementary School Teacher so I have started finding good childrens books at cheap prices to save for my classroom library one day. This way it won't cost me a small fortune to go out after getting hired and buy a ton of books at once. If you are an education major also, I highly recommend doing this! I am all about trying to make things a little easier. If you live in the Orlando area, look up BrightLight Books. This is a used bookstore that has a ton of like-new books at great prices.

The Giving Tree
I mean who doesn't know about this book. The graphics are simple, the story is beautiful, and my grandma cried when I read it to her. Just kidding, kinda!... love you Mamaw ;)

This is the sweetest story and I feel that everyone has to read it once!


Fancy Nancy
I picked this book because it was a favorite of my sister and I when we were kids! This book has the most over the top pictures and Fancy Nancy pretty much invented what it means to be "extra". I just love how girly she is and how she always wants to use big words... SO CUTE!


Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs
This has always been one of my favorite stories and I love the movie as well. The only thing that made me love this book more was seeing how Andrea did an entire day themed around it for her kids. She does at home book clubs and the ideas were so cute to use in a classroom also. I love getting creative with books and this is one that is definitely creative and fun to tell.

Oh The Places You'll Go
Who doesn't love Dr. Seuss?? I always loved this books growing up and some of the movies are precious as well. This is such a sweet story and has some of his best made-up-words.


Our Great Big Backyard
Y'all already know that I love Laura Bush. Her background is in Elementary Education and was an Elementary Librarian. After being finished with the whole First Lady thing, she wrote several children's books. This is the one she wrote on the 100th Anniversary of the National Parks and it is such a great book all about the outdoors and an epic road trip.


The Book With No Pictures
This book is too funny and kids LOVE having it read to them. I have no way of describing it so I am going to just link the video [HERE] for you to watch it being read out loud. You will understand the humor!


Well there you have it! I have a real love for children's books and hope one day that one I have written will be on someone else's favorites list. What were your favorite books as a kid/ favorites of your classroom? Let me know!

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a great week so far! Today I am sharing my top 5 favorite movies with y'all and links to buy them! This is a strange collection of movies but I wanted to be honest and share what movies I could watch over and over again! 

I am SUCH a movie lover and always looking for more movie suggestions so comment below PLEASE with your favorites. 

Number 1: ELF

Don't judge me!! ;) This is my all time favorite movie. I know it is typically only acceptable to watch it during the holidays but I don't really care. I LOVE THIS MOVIE! My sister and I can quote it from heart, start to finish. 
Buy on DVD here.


Number 2: Steel Magnolias
This movie almost beat out Elf.. almost. I love this movie so much. If you saw this post about my (non realistic) dream jobs, then you know that I have always heart loved that vintage hair salon where so much of this movie takes place. Dolly Parton does great in this movie. Ah I just love watching this.. any day, any time.
Buy on DVD here.

Number 3: Safe Haven
What would we do without some good Nicolas Sparks movies? I love most of the movies based off his books but this one is by far a favorite! It of course is a romance but the twist in this one got me. I have seen this movie probably 10 times and still love it the same!
Buy on DVD here.

Number 4: Facing The Giants
I love this movie. It has lots of Jesus and lots of Football. So cute and so good!
Buy on DVD here.

Number 5: Frozen
Again, don't judge me y'all, but I LOVE Frozen. My sister and I love watching it together and singing all the songs even though ever kids I know has worn it out. You have to admit that they were brilliant with the catchy music and the movie has a great message. It is all about sisters which I love. LET IT GOOOOO!
Buy on DVD here.
