Five on Friday - Fall Top, Red Dress, and Pumpkin Faves

We have the best weekend on deck, y’all!  Tomorrow is the Georgia vs. Notre Dame game so B and I are heading to Athens with some friends first thing in the morning!  ESPN College GameDay is going to be there and the University of Georgia is saying that this is going to be the biggest game and biggest tailgating crowd in school history.  What?! 

They are expecting more than 100,000 people to be in Athens just to tailgate and that doesn’t include the 92,000+ who will actually be attending the game.  They even added seats to the stadium to accommodate extra people.  And it’s a night game and those are always my favorite.  Every hotel in Athens has been booked solid for nearly a year but luckily B and I were able to snag an AirBnb that was listed a couple of weeks ago.  It’s going to be INSANE in the best way and I cannot WAIT!!!!  I’ll be posting all of our adventures on IG stories tomorrow so be sure to follow along!

Now for some favorites to kick off the weekend!

O N E – Fall Top

I posted this picture in my weekly recap post this past Monday and I had so many people private message me asking me to send the info on it.  Well y’all, it’s actually from Walmart and it’s on clearance here for a mere $9.  Seriously.  It comes in two different colors and both of them just scream fall despite the fact that they’re sleeveless.  They could not be more perfect for us down here in the south since we’re still dealing with 100+ degree temps.  I wish I was exaggerating.  All I want in this world right now is to be able to change over to my fall wardrobe, but since I can’t, this shirt is a nice way to appease me in my time of waiting.  Haha.

Side note, this one is SOOOO cute, too, and it's only $11.

T W O – Red Dress

Tomorrow is the day that I finally get to wear the new dress that I purchased for the Georgia game!!!!  I know I shared it on here once already, but I wanted to share it again, this time with ME in the dress.  I had a lot of questions about this one since it looks so short on the model so I thought I’d just share a picture of myself in it.  I’m 5’5” and 120 lbs. and I bought the small.  It hits a few inches above my knee so the length is perfect, and it’s roomy enough as well.  The model must be really tall since it’s so short on her, so as long as you’re not #supermodelstatus tall then the length should work for you. 

The dress is fully-lined, super well-made and the quality is surprisingly great.  It's only $18.99, it comes in eight different colors including olive green (so trendy right now), navy (so chic), mustard yellow (perfect for fall), and black (classic), and it's yet another Amazon item that I’d love to have in all the colors!

The best thing about it is that I’ll be able to stay nice and cool while still looking cute since the high in Athens is 86 on Saturday.  Sure beats the 101 that it was here yesterday, though, so I’LL TAKE IT.  Sigh.

T H R E E – Pumpkin Pie Kit Kats

Yes, you read that right.  Pumpkin Pie Kit Kats.  Kit Kats are one of my favorite candies of all time, so when I saw these I had to have them.  Apparently everyone else in our city did, too, because when we saw them at Target there were only two bags left.  All of the other candies were fully stocked to the brim, but those were gone.  We snatched up those last two bags and we’ve I’ve already gone through one whole bag.  Whoops.

F O U R – Pumpkin Cookie Sandwiches

And speaking of pumpkin goodies, my beloved pumpkin cookie sandwiches are back at Walmart this year, y’all!  Oh my word, if you love pumpkin then you’ll adore these!  I think these are probably the best pumpkin item I’ve ever put in my mouth.  They are terrible for you, but they are worth every single calorie, I promise.  They’re always on the seasonal treats table right when you walk in the grocery side of the store in my Walmart, so grab some the next time you’re there!

F I V E – I’m Old

So I jumped on to Facebook earlier this week and saw this alert:

How in the world have I been on Facebook for FOURTEEN years?!   If that wasn’t an #oldlady moment then I don’t know what is! 

On another note, Facebook provided me with a collage of some of the old pictures that I’ve posted/been tagged in over the years, and I started cracking up over the top left one.  My mom and dad do a family Christmas card every year, and they always try to come up with something clever.  Well, back in 2013 my mom came up with the idea to be the “Christmas Wrappers” and she assigned each person in our family a rapper name, some of them Christmas themed.  I was “Ice Ice Baby” because I was seven months pregnant with Olivia, Brian was “Ice-B” instead of Ice-T, Jacob was “Lil’ Jake Frost,” and so on… this was probably my favorite family Christmas card ever. 

Now for some Friday funnies…

Literally just did this the other day.

Hahahaha.  Why is this so true?

Yes, somebody should definitely have the talk with me, too.


Every time.

And ICYMI, this week’s blog posts…

Happy Friday, everybody!
