All Over the Place

This post is coming at you from ALL OVER THE PLACE, meaning it’s a big old random dose of all the things going on, floating around in my head, and things I’ve been meaning to share but keep forgetting.  

Basically, I titled it, “All Over the Place”, because the other seemed a tad too long.  πŸ˜‰
First up, let’s talk Game Day Gear.  Did you know American Eagle has a division called, Tailgate?  Most of their items are sports-related…MLB, NBA, college attire, etc.  They also have music, natural parks, and more.  I stumbled upon it on an Instagram ad and thought they had some of the cutest stuff!  They have over forty-five universities represented in their college line-up!

Being a college football official’s wife and graduating from a smaller university, I don’t have a well-known team I really support.  We tend to cheer for all the Big 12 teams in our house but when I saw all the goodies Tailgate had I knew I needed to give them a try.  Bowen’s flag football team for the last two years has been “The Tigers” {his coaches are big LSU fans} in full blown purple and gold.  So, I grabbed two tops I could wear to the field to support my favorite six-year-old tigers.

I had to show off that the temperature here in North Texas dropped so low on Thursday night/Friday morning we were lighting fires!  First fire of the season!  My top is 30% off right now.  Looks like ALL college gear is 30% off right now!

Tab left for his football game on Friday right after lunch and I finished up my work on the couch with the fire going.  It.  Was.  Delightful!  I might have texted him this picture to rub it in just a bit.

Friday evening, the kiddos and I watched Beetlejuice.  WHAT A WEIRD MOVIE!!  I remember being so confused when I was younger while we watched and to be honest-I felt the same way as a thirty-six-year-old watching.  It’s rated PG but it probably should be PG-13 because it’s a tad crude in places.  I recorded it on Freeform so there wasn’t much language but if you rent it, I’d be prepared for that.  However, I’m not necessarily recommending it.  This movie is so weird!  Do you guys remember?

Saturday morning was COLD!  And Britt and Bowen both played EARLY on Saturday.  I sported my other tiger shirt, along with this beanie {similar}.

Britty and I took this one and then cracked up because how’d I block her entire face?!

Much better!

Soccer star ready to take the field!  Her coat is so darn cozy.  She kicked the ball this week!  WAHOO!  Some family friends asked her at Nixon’s football game if she scored any goals.  Her response, “Two”.  #liarliarpantsonfire

These two cuties attended an 80’s themed ice skating birthday party on Sunday afternoon and had so much fun!

Our Sunday School Class’s Annual Harvest Party was Sunday evening so we got our costumes on to PARTY!  Cindy Lou Who was looking ADORABLE and a tad like Little Red Riding Hood.  {After the party, I ordered her the Cindy Lou wig to solidify her costume.  I don’t know that she’ll like it but we’ll see.}

With the right wig, I think there will be no questions.  πŸ™‚

My girlfriends decided Britty should wear lipstick everyday.  ha!

Do you recognize Benny Rodriguez?  The cool kid from The Sandlot?

Bowen dropped the oversized jersey and looked just like him.  Don’t you think?  πŸ˜‰

And Miss Peanut Butter…to her bestie’s jelly.

The girlies

I forgot to mention…I also had one nine-year-old who was way too cool for a costume.  Someone mentioned how much he loves Britty-yes, I should have had her ask him to dress up as The Grinch.  He wouldn’t have been able to say no.

Mrs. Andrea always does the best job planning this party….slide bounce house paired with the best food!


What a CREW!!

Please note Cindy’s pose.

She LOVES the Grinch so we thought this costume was fitting.

What this duo looked like together.

And check out these Rapunzels with Cindy….too cute!

Okay, friends…that wraps it up!  Happy Wednesday, Everyone!

    Last night I told Carter we needed to order his Halloween costume and he said "Why don't I just wear last year's costume? It still fits!" I MEAN! I hit the jackpot. However, that being said, your kids look SO CUTE! And I agree with the Little Red Riding Hood vibe AND with the fact that a bright red lip should be her signature look!

    Every day. She should wear that lipstick every single day πŸ˜‰ . She looked adorable with it on…I didn't think it was possible for her to have more personality, but she owned that costume!!
