Linking up again this week with Darci, April, Christina, and Natasha for Five on Friday!
It's already September (how?!) and the weather is already cooling off here in Virginia. The sun isn't up when my alarm goes off and my windows are foggy and coffee tastes extra delicious. Everyone's making pumpkin spiced goodies and I've already seen glimpses of leggings on Instagram. All of this means Fall is officially here and before you know it, it'll be Halloween! I've got no idea what Noah will be yet but I am leaning toward a pirate in a pirate ship (made from a wagon).
Fall also means football season is here.... and I feel left out because I'm so not a sports girl. My husband is a big college football junkie and avid Virginia Tech fan so I root for them to make him happy but otherwise, all I know is that football means tailgating and tailgating means good food and beer and really, that's what matters right?
This morning on the Elvis Duran Morning Show, they were asking listeners to play "Do, Marry or Kill" and the options were Miley Cyrus, Amanda Bynes and Justin Bieber. Basically, you have to do one, marry one and kill one... um, tough call because I'm not a fan of any of them at the current moment!
Which would you do, marry or kill?
September is "birthday month" in my family. Looking at my calendar right now, there are seven birthdays within two weeks alone. This week, I made my friend Kristin her birthday dinner which consisted of meatloaf, mashed potatoes and the Pioneer Woman's green bean casserole. I was a little hesitant making a cheese sauce for my green beans but I kid you not - my life has been changed. I wish I had been making my green bean casserole this way my entire life.
This is her original version that contains pimentos and onions - both of which I omitted - and I used french fried onions like I normally would. Let me just tell you, I will never make green beans with cream of mushroom soup again!!
I'm officially out of topics... so... have a good weekend!
