When You're Bored In Bed....

You bust out your “midnight blogging idea” journal and draw pictures of Emily and Jef. Happily in love. While your husband is sound asleep and you are lying there in the pitch black
{hence Emily’s face not being connected to her head…}

Well at least that’s what I do. My husband thought the whole thing was “a bit odd” when I showed him my masterpiece this morning. I only found it proper to pay tribute to the best couple in the history of the bachelor/bachelorette. Oh crap. I just noticed I forgot little Ricky Bobby.

Speaking of—I tried convincing Shawn last night that we should change Maggie {our dog}’s name to Little Ricky. I personally think Ricky has much more flare than boring ole Maggie
{compare Mariah to Erin...same thing}
Plus that way Jef and Emily can be a part of our lives, forever and ever.
Again, Shawn found this a little odd.
I only find it logical.


Moving forward---so this week is pretty dang exciting on the exciting Richter scale.
For starters our local 4H Fair is going on (you know you are a hillbilly when….)
This means two things: Country Concerts and Spiral spuds.

Gosh I love those suckers.

Last night was Thompson Square and tonight is Josh Turner.

Two artists that I only know a couple songs of, meaning the remainder of the time I will be mouthing along to my own lyrics. Act like you don’t do it either….

And on top of all this fair goodness, my bestie from Nashville is home for the entiiiiiire week.
{that would be the one on the left. the one on the right seems to never leave. thankfully ;)..}

Which means that my blogging and/or social {media} skills may suck.
Go ahead and sue me.
Actually don’t---if you do I will most likely have to return the dress of all dresses that I just bought from Miss Chic.

Do you not just die?

Oh hey—speaking of Miss Chic, it appears that I have a deal to share with you all today.
You remember this ring I’ve showed you before right?

Well today you can purchase the same one
(or a different color…but that would be dumb. Clearly mine is the coolest…)
and get it for a steal of a deal.
I am a walking infomercial…
Just enter code BLINGRING25 for 25% off.

Exciting right?
Get yours now.

And just because it’s my blog and I don’t feel “blogger appropriate” without sharing any weekend photos, here you have it—

 {this would be my nephew. aka batman. I'm related to some big names, just sayin....}

ps. The winner of the JAVOedge giveaway is Sarah. Congrats pretty lady-- I will be emailing you as soon as I stop living up the best moments of my life.

pps. I woke up at 5:45 am this morning to do this post. And I am hungry. If this post makes no sense. Now you know why. And you also know why I am about to make a box of mac and cheese with diet pepsi...at 6:30 am.

ppps. It just started storming. Meaning I am really off to crawl back in bed for at least 5 minutes and then complain the whole time that I am in the shower about how work places don't let you call off for rainy days. Some things I'll just never understand.....

Have a good one little bits.

Cheers to elephant ears, corn dogs, and the smell of horse crap.




  1. Love this post. Love that you drew pics of you and yoru husband (like Jef did for Emily). Too funny

  2. Always a fun read! Thanks for keeping me company this morning! Haha!

  3. I think that's why I don't go to concerts unless I know every single song the artist has ever had. I just can't stand the thought of standing there all awkward while everyone else is singing.
    P.s. those curly things look delish!

  4. Love that dress, the color is too amazing!!!

  5. Clicked on the winner of your giveaway to see who the lucky blogger was...and it was me?!?!?! DYING!!!! So excited :) My first giveaway win! Take you time with that email and enjoy the 4H Fair!

  6. you're quite dedicated to wake at 5:45 to post. well then again, here i am at a quarter to 7 reading blogs. ahhh, i'm going to be late. =)

  7. Love this whole blog! And...I must get that ring! :)

  8. Your weekend outfit was super cute...love the red pants! And I wish my hometown in GA had a 4H fair like that- I'd love to see Thompson Square and Josh Turner!!

  9. First of all, HUGE fan of your blog!

    Second, I am totally that person that wakes up at 2 am and jots down my blogging ideas!

    Who created the layout of your blog? LOVE it!

  10. I LOVE that outfit from Old Navy!

  11. Love the post. Love that ring. Love all the pictures. Love you. #thatisall ;)

  12. I am seriously and creepily obsessed with Emily and Jef. I think they are so stinkin' cute together.

    LOVE that outfit! :)

  13. We call those "Ribbon Fries" but I'm totally just gonna' go with Spiral Spuds from now on... way more fun! Gosh I can't wait to get to a fair/festival SOON and eat so much fried food I pass out :)

    Thanks for the discounts GIRL! Your fashion rocks! Ps- Do ON skinnies fit true to size? Been wanting to order a pair but haven't shopped there in forever!!

  14. I've been eying the same dress, it's adorable!!!! Have a blast at the fair!


  15. I agree Little Ricky really has a ring to it, Maggie is so '80's!

  16. Now I want curly spuds... Mmmmm... Oh! And corn dogs. Ugh. Fair time cannot get here fast enough.

  17. The fair! I totally just looked it up because I was going to be in Goshen for one short day on Sunday which I now see is one day late for the fair. Waaah. I will enjoy your fair post today and live vicariously through that.

  18. Can we pretend you didn't say that Sarah was the winner. You must have misspelled my name. Yay! Anywho- love your red skinnies and polka dot tank. I love everything you wear. It's like I have a weird girl crush on your clothes. Ugh. I'm weird.

  19. I just can't believe you're related to Batman! LOL And I've never tried curly spuds...up here we just do potato wedges and call them mojos :) I think I'd like them though, they look like they would have a better potato to cheese ratio!

  20. Great post.. defintely made me laugh! The 4H Fair sounds super fun.. love events like that. And I LOVE your red jeans! You looked adorable!

  21. I love Thompson Square! I saw them when they opened for Lady Antebellum and since then I've had their album on repeat.

    That dress is gorgeous! I love that color green!

  22. I live in Minneapolis so we don't do the county fair BUT the State fair is where it's at. If you ever find your self in Minnesota at Labor Day weekend it is a MUST.


  23. that dress is amazing.

    it's 1:20. and im starving... after reading this, i have GOT to go get me some food.

  24. I'm obssessed with that dress. It looks amazing. Looks like you had a great weekend.

  25. Gosh I thought I was the only one obsessed with Emily and Jef with one F. Man, they are a good looking couple. I may or may not have commented on every pic they are in together on instagram. No wait, I did!


  26. “You know you're a hillbilly when”

    You crack me up, but I guess I'm a hillbilly because I knew exactly what you were talking about!

  27. oh my god. bought the dress. obsessed. thank you. ahhhhhhh

  28. Those rings are sooooo cute! I want every color!

  29. I WANT THOSE CHIPS!!!!!!!!!!

  30. Those spiral spuds look incredible (and I'm saying that with a totally full belly - so it's a big deal)! Also, I am so jealous of those cute orange pants. I have been on the lookout for colored pants all summer (I think they would be a great addition to my teacher wardrobe) and cannot find any in my size.

  31. OK, first of all, those potatoes look AMAZEBALLS!

    Second, you made me have all kinds of emotions in my heart when you said Sarah is the winner. I jumped up, punched the air and whisper screamed, "YEAH BABY!!" Whisper screamed because the baby is sleeping. Then I clicked on my email, no email, then I clicked on the Sarah link. It wasn't me. So then I whisper yelled, "NOOOOOOO!!!!!!"

    my husband thinks I'm crazy.

    Sigh, someday I will win something for real.

    Congrats, real Sarah, on winning.

  32. That neon dress is AMAZING!

    Also, I would wake up in the middle of the night and draw pictures, too. haha

  33. That dress is insane, and I love your gold and white sandals. Hmmm...might need to get myself those.

  34. I'm a bad blogger and don't watch The Bachelor shows...I know, I know...but I knew enough to know who Rikki was. A blogger who shall remain nameless, was making fun of little Rikki, and I'm assuming her weight, and I wanted to punch said blogger. You DON'T make fun of kids and especially not about weight. Damn bullies. Nice bling, though!

  35. Those spiral spuds with cheese on top are my FAVORITE! Lucky they're only around at fair time... ;)

  36. Best thing about the fair; the food that you eat and then spend the next month feeling fat and guilty over :)


I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
