Happy Halloween, y'all!!  I'll be back tomorrow with a new Rewind Series: Halloween Edition but for today, I'm leaving you with this gem.

Amanda, aka Rainbow Brite, circa 1985(ish).  ;)

Do y'all remember when costumes were as simple as the creepy plastic mask and the plastic dress you just slipped over your clothes?  Ahh. Those were the days.

We are in for a very WET and yucky Halloween so this should be an interesting one for us.

See you back here tomorrow!

Coming Soon!

Well, I am once again phoning it in on a post today but it's for a good reason!  (#crossmyheart)  

I'm currently in the process of setting up a sister blog for all of the daily deals that I post in my Facebook group every day! And it's taking up all my blogging time.

This will be a way for all of you who aren't on Facebook to catch all the deals from that day which I'm hoping will be helpful during that holiday shopping season!  I'll add deals there as I add them on FB so the blog will be updated multiple times a day.  I'm hoping to launch it within days... If I can just get our baseball schedule to stop taking over my life, that would be great. ;)

But for now, you can find so many of those awesome deals HERE, HERE and HERE.
I'll be back tomorrow with all those Friday Favorites and will let you know as soon as I have a launch date for the new blog!

Weekend Roundup.

Happy Monday, friends!

 I hope everyone had a great weekend!  I am in a pretty fantastic mood from all this awesome SUNSHINE we've had this weekend!  It rained here for like a week straight.  Maybe more.  I'm talking steady downpours every single day, multiple times a day for at least 7 days.

Every day looked a whole lot like this.

But Saturday morning, we woke up to all that glorious sunshine pouring through the windows and it felt GOOD!

Friday Favorites #76.

Oh hey there strangers!

Y'all may have been wondering where I've been all week on this blog (or you may not have even noticed and if that's the case, don't tell me, because that is depressing).  ;)

But I've had so many things come up over the past several days that once again, the blog had to take a backseat.  I tend to blog only when I'm in the mood, have something to actually share or have some spare time...or any combination of those three.  Trust me, if I blogged about my daily life every day y'all would die of boredom. Mainly because if I'm not working, I'm with these two knuckleheads and they are at that age where they don't love having their picture taken. They will literally run and hide if I turn my camera on them.  I did get one cute one this week though because they were riding high on the excitement of new Walmart jammies.  ;)  #bribeswork

Happy Monday, friends!

Friday was my birthday so I spent the weekend celebrating in all my favorite ways!  Food, family, football and friends!  Thank you for all the sweet birthday wishes, by the way!!  Y'all are the best!!

Friday morning the kids headed to school, Craig left for the Mission Regan golf tournament and my parents showed up at my house around 10:30.  My parents live in Texarkana which is about 2.5 hours from Mckinney and now that they are both retired, they can come in whenever they want.  This makes me extremely happy because I have fantastic parents. :)

We decided to take advantage of our kid-free time and head to downtown Mckinney.  I've been dying to try out the newest restaurant down there called The Yard so that was our first stop.

In Another Life.

Do you ever daydream about the paths you didn't take?  And what your life might be like if you had?  I do this a lot because I have always been a daydreamer by nature.  It's that part of me that gives me my love for books...and reality shows.  ;)  

I love to see how other people live, fictional or not.  Since it's impossible for me to actually live out all my career fantasies, live in all the different cities, states and countries that I think would be amazing or look a certain way (hello, Giselle!), books and television are the next best thing.  (Blogs are also fun, of course!)

Sometimes I wonder how my life would be if I had taken a different path.  And I mean career-wise.  I'd want to keep my same family.  :)

What if I had gotten a scholarship to a different school?  What if I'd stuck with my first major (journalism) or my second major (3 years of biology thinking I wanted to be a doctor...) instead of graduating with a degree in business?

So I thought it would be fun to share all the things that I might do if I had multiple lives to live.
