Just stopping by

Hello Friends! 
Did you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving?

Are your pants fitting a little bit tighter today?

Are you still washing the MACE out of your eyes from psycho black friday escapades?

If you're bored at work trying to figure out how it's already Christmas time and wondering what to get yourself that one family member that you just can't figure out, head on over to Ideeli today!

They have great "cyber Monday" sales everyday! 

Today they're featuring something that's been on my Christmas list for a while now
Too cute, right?!

You better believe the boyfriend has already been sent a link to this deal!

Do you need an invite?! Click HERE and join in on the fun!

Woooooooo PIG SOOIE!!

As you all are recovering from your Thanksgiving food coma and finding great gift deals for Christmas, the lovah and I are down in Baton Rouge getting ready to cheer on our Razorbacks against the LSU Tigers.

There is SO much riding on this game that I'm getting heart palpitations just thinking about it. 

Arkansas is currently #3 in the country.
LSU is #1.
Alabama is #2.

If we beat LSU today then there will be a three way tie between these teams (we all will have one loss).
But the kicker is these three teams will have all lost to EACH OTHER!
We lost to Alabama, Alabama lost to LSU, and (pending today's outcome) LSU will have lost to us.

This is where things get interesting.
Who goes to the SEC championship?
Who goes to the NATIONAL championship?!

See what I'm's a nail biter ya'll!!

So come 1:30 today, say a little prayer for me and my Razorbacks!

And I hope to be reenacting this picture with some pretty sad LSU fans!

Thankful and Blessed

I am blessed beyond words to have the life I have.
I have so much to be thankful for, not only today but everyday.

I'm thankful for a Mother who loves me unconditionally and is silly with me

I'm thankful for a step-father that loves me like his own

I'm thankful for a boyfriend who lets me be me

I'm thankful for my beautiful, healthy puppies

I'm thankful for all of my friends and extended family near and far, and I'm also thankful for all of you who read my little blog!

I hope you are blessed today and every other day of the year!

It's Wednesday and once again time for my favorite link-ups!
Won't you play along with me?

Link up with Jamie and MIchelle for What I'm Loving Wednesday and Oh! How Pinteresting!

{I'm Loving} that tomorrow is Thanksgiving! I can't wait to chow down on some of Momma's yummy treats with friends and family!

{I'm Loving} that John is coming to spend Thanksgiving with me this year! We've been together for 3 years (this is our fourth set of holidays as a couple...cray cray) and this will be the first year we've spent a major holiday together! So excited...are we growing up?!

{I'm Loving} that after all of the thanks and all of the giving, Mr. John Andrew and I will be headed down to Baton Rouge (AKA Death Valley) to watch our #3 Hogs take on the #1 Tigers for the 'Battle of the Boot' and the possibility of a National Championship!
So excited.
Let's keep this trophy in Arkansas where it belongs!

Ask and you shall receive...

The title of this post should probably be my life's mantra. 
I can not even begin to tell you all of the things I have been blessed with simply because I asked for them.
If you don't ask, then you don't get.
Write that down.

Usually around this time of year I create a power point presentation for my mother of all the things I would enjoy for Christmas.
because i'm a thoughtful child

Ask and receive, get it?

This year I'm gonna switch it up.
I'm sure you and everyone else on the world wide web would just LOVE to know what I'd like for Christmas.
If you would like to ship me any one of these lovlies, I'll be happy to supply my address.

4. Anything Monogram 
5. Bracelets, Bracelets, Bracelets!!

***And because I'm moving into a new house ahhh and need decorating tid bits, I'd enjoy anything I've pinned to Pinterest on my DecorateDIY, or Bedroom boards.***

Well, I guess that will do for now.
These are all things that I'd love to have, but definitely don't need.
However, I do need a couch for my new home. 
Oh I can't wait to decorate!!!

What are you wanting for Christmas? 
Anything I left off my list that I will die without should probably look into?!
Let me know!

Have a great day my loves!

oh my word...

Well hello there, strangers!
Remember me?
I'm Sarah, the little blogger who has been MIA for a good while now.
But now I'm baaaaack and I guess I'll give ya a little run down on what in the world I've been doing:

1. I FOUND A HOUSE!!! I've been in Houston for the past 2 weeks trying to find that perfect place for me and my four legged child.  After searching and stressing, I finally found the cutest little place that is absolutely perfect! It's about 10mins from the bf, has a big back yard for the pups, and is across the street from a park with running trails and a fenced in dog park.  Hallelujah, the good Lord answers prayers! Move in date is January 5 and I can't wait to show you all pictures!! 

2. While I was looking for a house, I was also getting to spend much needed quality time with the boyfran.  We got to be together for 2 whole weeks which depressingly is the most time we've got to spend together in almost A YEAR!! On December 17 it will officially be one year that we've been long distance...gross.  I can't wait to move on down to H-town and be reunited with my boo!

3. I've been watching my 15lb (and I'm not being generous with that weight, he's just big boned) weenie dog terrorize my 100lb (not being generous either) lab:
without a doubt, every time I walk outside, my little ankle biter chases poor sweet Cash off of the porch and around the house.  Cash thankfully just thinks Oscar is playing with him, but I know Oscars true motives...can we say jealousy issues?!

4. I've been watching my Razorbacks overtake college football!! Okay, we're #3 in the country so maybe we haven't taken over just yet, but Friday we play LS-WHO down in Death Valley.  I'm also sad to report that our Razorback family lost a player this weekend.  So lets do it for #88 guys.  Take down LSU and bring on a National Championship!!

So there you have it friends!
I hope you all have a happy Monday!
It's turkey week... remember everything you're thankful for!!

All my love,

wednesday funs

Happy Wednesday lovlies! I hope you are having half as good a week as I am! 
I'm still down in Houston stressing out trying to find that perfect house and being little Susie Homemaker while John is at work and I'm kind of loving it (!).  I've been tweaking my cooking skills and for the first time IN MY LIFE I've cooked with a crockpot...who knew that a crockpot was the greatest invention ever? I mean you just throw your ingredients in there, turn it on, and walk away.  
That's my kind of cooking!
So I know what you're all here for... 
it's time to link up with Jamie and Michelle for What I'm Loving Wednesday and Oh! How Pinteresting!
Lets get started!
{I'm Loving} being in Houston with my lovah.  I've been having so much fun with new and old friends
Lucky me hanging out with these handsome guys!

{I'm Loving} that Thanksgiving is only a couple of weeks away which means I get to scarf down Momma's yummy treats!

{I'm Loving} that I had my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season the other day...and let me just tell you it was AMAZING!

{I'm Loving} the things I've found on Pinterest this week!

I'm loving the chunky layered look that's becoming so popular!
I need this in my life!!
