Last Friday Night

Little Man and I had a super busy weekend. My best friend and my mom were both in town (not together of course), so we had to visit with them. The crappy weather of the weekend was not about to ruin my good time!

Thursday night, we met up with my best friend Tera and went shopping…well, window shopping since we only actually bought peppermint hot chocolate and a muffin at the coffee shop in Books A Million.

I have no idea why it's so bright! Stupid Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

Friday night, my youngest brother had his senior night for marching band so we stayed for the whole football game. Little Man seemed to like it, except for when he got hungry of course.

We were very bundled up!

Saturday, we got lunch, went shopping, and had dinner with my mom and two brothers. Little Man stole a chicken wing from my plate at lunch (no, I didn’t let him keep it long enough to get to the bone), slept for an hour while we shopped, and had some green beans at dinner so he had a good time (he loves food).

Yep, we wore matching shirts.

Today, we cleaned, took naps, and watched movies so we spent the day in our pajamas.

My husband surprised me with a Marvel pillowcase and a Big Bang Theory throw blanket!

Secret Love

Well, it’s Thankful Thursday on the October Blogging Challenge. There are 3 Thankful Thursdays scheduled for this month so this one will be about the people I’m thankful for.

I’ll be like every parent here, but I’m seriously thankful for my son. His smile and silly personality brighten my whole day. He’s the most curious baby I’ve ever seen. Any time we go somewhere new, he has to look around and figure out what everything is as soon as we get there. He’s starting to crawl now, so I’m about to get the most exercise of my life!

This is how he watches me play games on my phone.

I’m very happy to have the husband I have. He’s my best friend and we are like peas and carrots (I love Forrest Gump), by themselves they’re pretty good but they’re even better together. We laugh at the same jokes, watch the same movies, play the same games, everything.

My brother is my long time best friend. He’s been my best friend for almost 21 years (he’ll be 21 in February). We text each other all day about any and every thing. The other day, he willingly went to the grocery store with me so I could get baby food. Who does that?! My brother, that’s who.

The last (but not least) person I’m enormously thankful for is my only girl best friend, Tera. Yes, she lives like 10 hours away and works like a million jobs (I’m kidding) but we text whenever she gets a free chance. We can send each other shocking things about tv shows that the other has seen (that freaking Happyland episode?!), movie lines, or just about the random weirdness we experienced that day. We send pins on Pinterest and we snapchat too so we’re very social with each other.

Who are you thankful for? Let me know and come back for tomorrow’s post of the day!

People, Let Me Tell Ya ‘Bout My Best Friend

Look at me writing another post sooner than I did last time! Yes I realize how strange the title is, but if you knew me (or if you keep reading this blog) you’d totally understand the weirdness and possibly learn to love it.

Obviously, I’m gonna tell you about my best friend…other than my husband and my brother. We’ve only been friends for almost 3 years and it has been amazing, if I do say so myself (and I do).

A little bit of backstory for you, in the 2011-2012 school year we both attended what is possibly the smallest university I’ve ever seen and lived in the same dorm building, heck her room was right next to my high school best friend’s room! But we didn’t meet until December of 2011, the 8th to be exact. I had originally gone to her room to study with her roommate (my lab partner) for a final we had the next day. It was a Thursday night (anyone who went to college knows what happens on Thursdays) and my lab partner was one of those worrisome mom types, meaning she had to make sure everyone was alright when they got back from parties and what not. Well, she pretty much left me in her room with her roommate (whom I’d never met before in my life). I had debated going back to my dorm to study done I already knew what was going on on the final and didn’t need to study (I had an A in class), but then we started talking about weddings and Pinterest and that’s where it all began.

That night we watched movies I’d never seen and spent until the morning talking, laughing, and finding out how much we were alike. The winter semester ended the next week but we continued talking over break and the next semester we were practically inseparable. We had three classes together, ate all of our meals together, and hung out as much as possible.

After the year ended, neither of us went back to that college. She was three hours away from home, so she went to a college closer to her house and I never went back to college. We still found time to get together and I even went on vacation with her family last year. She is an honorary aunt to my son and the person I text when I just need to rant or get a silly idea out of my head.

Last month, she moved to South Carolina and she told me today that she’s feeling super homesick so I wrote this post to let her know this:

Tera,

You are an amazing, beautiful, gracious person. You deserve to be happy and live your life whether it be here, there, or in Paris. I’m not saying it’ll be easy all the time but it does get easier. At one point, you’ll probably even feel like you don’t ever want to come home because you love where you are and that’s okay! Just know I love you best friend and I miss you everyday.

Love, me 🙂

Isn't she gorgeous?!
