Your teeth look like a....





1. I have recently started watching Z: The Beginning of Everything on Amazon Prime.  It is pretty good and insanely beautiful.  Christina Ricci is absolutely gorgeous in this show.  I have always loved writers like F. Scott Fitzgerald and other Lost Generation writers, like Hemingway.  The Great Gatsby and This Side of Paradise were life changing books for me and I did a college paper on Zelda Fitzgerald while attending Auburn.  While parts of the show are slow, it is overall very interesting and worth watching.  Another bonus is that episodes are only 28 minutes each, so it is perfect for lunch breaks and while your babe is napping.





2. Super Bowl Sunday will be my 6th wedding anniversary. It is scary how fast time is starting to fly by.  Year after year, the anniversaries come back around more quickly than the year before.  Some days it feel like our wedding was just yesterday...then I look at our two kids, dog and house and am reminded that quite a lot has happened in the last 6 years.  I do not have any words in my vocabulary that are great enough to explain my love and admiration for the hubs.  He is a fiercely protective husband and father who will not stand for anyone disrespecting us. He works long hours, commuting to and from Atlanta everyday, for one reason...his family.  I cannot think of a better role model for Bubba or a better man to show Viv how she should be treated. I feel so lucky and proud to be his wife.

3. I recently purchased these beautiful tobacco baskets.  I will not be able to pick them up until next weekend, but I am so excited to get these unique pieces onto our very bare walls.  We have lived in our house for nearly a year and a half and have barely put a thing up on our insanely high walls.  I am still trying to figure out our family style and how to strategically decorate such large open spaces of wall without items looking random. These baskets will certainly help my cause!

4. Last night the hubs was giving our son, Bubba a hard time about being a bigger Cam Newton fan than a Matt Ryan fan. I feel it necessary to point out that in any other scenario, in which the Falcons were not in the Super Bowl, Hubs would be Team Cam instead of Team Ryan... So the trash talking between the two of them escalated to the Hubs calling Bubba a Bama fan (Hubs and I met and graduated from Auburn, WAR EAGLE!)...The rest of the conversation went like this:

Hubs: You're a Bama fan, aren't ya Bubba?
Bubba: No, You're a Bama fan!
Hubs: But you say Roll Tide, don't ya?
Bubba: Your teeth look like a Bama fan's!

DOH! Hook, line and sinker...Bubba won that round! War Eagle!

(disclaimer, I have many Bama fan friends who have beautiful teeth...it's all in good fun!)

5. My random thought for the week...Do y'all ever notice all of the giveaways on Instagram?  You have to like about 30 different IG accounts, along with the post about the giveaway itself, in order to be entered.  Have you ever wondered if those giveaways are real?  I have seen so many lately that I get to wondering if some of these giveaways I see are just a hoax to get more followers. You never hear about the winners as I never see them announced on IG.  I am sure they are all probably legit, but there is a part of me that just can't seem to completely believe it.


Happy Friday, y'all!!

Linking up with some of my favorite friday blogs!!

I'm so behind on shows I want to watch, but hearing that the Z episodes are short definitely bumps it up for me! Happy Anniversary weekend, your wedding photos are gorgeous!

As a Bama fan- I am DYING! Best come back ever! So funny!
Also--those baskets!! Were they a decent price? I am loving them but the ones I have found are so EXPENSIVE! I will have to check out the vintage nest. Can't wait to see what you do with them!

Thanks for sharing Z: The beginning of everything. I hadn't heard of it, but I think I would really like it. Your wedding photo is beautiful - it looks so peaceful to be surrounded by nature.
