Sideline Style

Happy Day, Ladies!

How'd your team do this weekend?

Last week everyone seemed pumped to have Sideline Style back for the season.  This year I'm just highlighting a couple teams each week and sharing a little collage of goodies that would be perfect for your Game Day.  This week I have three great teams ready to share with you!

First up are the LOUISVILLE CARDINALS!
I found some super cute tops in red that would be perfect for a game in Louisville!


#2 Plaid Tunic-I used the word, "tunic" because that's what the website said.  I'm not sure this top would cover all my lady parts, but I'd wear it with jeans.




Next, we have MICHIGAN!
These might need to be away game day gear for Michigan fans.  You guys might need warmer tops for a home game!  I wasn't super successful in the thick sweater department today, but they're all super cute.





#5 Peplum Top


The last stop for Game Day is Columbus, Ohio, to see OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY!
Whether rain or shine, Buckeye fans-I have you covered.  :)

#1 High Neck Dress

#2 Kut from the Kloth Jacket

#3 Hunter Rain Boots

#4 Converse


And I shared this pair of heels before, but they're worth sharing again...
They're 35% off right now.  Just random sizes are left, but if you've thought about purchasing a pair of leopard heels...now is your time!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, girls!  See you tomorrow for What's Up Wednesday!

Let's Talk...Entertainment!

 Happy Monday!  Hope you all had a great weekend!  Today, Andrea and I are chit chatting about all things ENTERTAINMENT.  

This post couldn't have come at a better time.  First of all, I'm a reader.  I try to fit reading in anytime I'm waiting.  I pack my book for appointments, practices, etc. and if I have any down time I read.  I also read before bed-usually every night.  I have several books to share with you!

This is a very "Girl on the Train" type read.  Mia meets a guy out on the town, decides to go home with him, and then realizes he is actually kidnapping her.  It's a bit of a kidnapping gone wrong suspense-thriller.  If you're a fan of Girl on the Train, Gone Girl, etc...then I'd definitely recommend this one!  It's not creepy, disturbing-which some of them tend to go in this genre.  I give it two thumbs up!



Have you guys read Sally Hepworth's The Secrets of Midwives?  If not, you should!  It was so good!  When I heard she had another book out, I was pumped to read it.  Let me tell you...it didn't disppoint!  In this book, Anna, who is only in her thirties, but whose mind is slowly slipping away.  She moves into an assisted living facility, meets some residents, and we discover love might be the one thing we remembers.  I'm telling you...it's good!



My favorite Elin Hilderbrand book to date!  My sister-in-law kept telling me this was her fave and now I know why.  The ending just kept me guessing.  We meet two families who live on Nantucket.  Both are involved with some rumors and we learn how twisted and messed up rumors can leave you.  A great chick-lit read!



For all you thriller, creepy, mystery loving girls, this one is DISTURBING!  This story is all about a family who had one daughter go missing years ago.  Through an unexpected turn of events, we discover a serial killer and how he is linked to the family.  I don't want to give too much away, in case you want to read.  But please know you have to be okay with some disturbing stuff to read this one.  Grandma, this is NOT for you.  :)



After reading something like Pretty Girls, this was the perfect book to pick up.  Light and easy for the win!  This Hilderbrand novel is set over the weekend of a family wedding.  We learn the ins and outs of one family, where everyone seems to be bringing a little drama.  I liked this one a lot!


Big Brother
Last week Big Brother finally chose a winner!  I always start out so strong with this show in the middle of summer when we have zero commitments, but by the beginning of September I'm ready for it to be over.  It's hard to watch so many episodes during the week.  But...what'd you think of the winner?

**SPOILER ALERT**

Nicole was crowned the winner!  I might have been the only one, but I was a little SHOCKED!  I was expecting Paul to win with the vast majority of votes.  He seemed to be playing the game a lot harder, but what's that saying about smarter not harder?  Maybe that was Nicole's plan all along.  I really was surprised, but she was a good choice.  I like that she never had to get nasty mean (which some of them seem to revert to) in order to win.

I was happy that Victor one America's favorite.  After coming back into the house twice, he totally deserved it!


This is Us
Did anyone else watch this premier last week?  I'd seen previews and was totally getting the Parenthood vibe so I set my DVR.  So far I'm a fan!  That surprise ending completely shocked me, but it was SO good.  Right?  If you were a Parenthood fan, then I'd say watch online and catch up.  This is gonna be a good one.

A few of our Let's Talk posts from the past...


Next month, we'll be sharing our favorite recipes.  You should join us!  XOXO

Friday Favorites

Hey Hey!  It's FRIDAY!  And I for one am super happy to see it.  :)

This has been me all week long...
 Anyone else??


And I haven't found anything that works...
 That graph made me LOL!  It's exactly how I'm feeling right now.  I just told Tab yesterday the medicine doesn't even make me want to sleep-it makes me want to just close my eyes.  My eyes hurt.  They feel better if they're closed.  ha!

In the spring, I should just welcome them and throw a party.  :)  #iloveagoodparty


I'm joining my girls, Andrea and Narci, to share some Friday Favorites.

This picture is crazy blurry, but I cropped out every kiddo I didn't have permission to post-which only left two!  Last weekend, Ebby Lee and a friend went to a local high school's drill team clinic.  I dropped them off with big smiles and picked them up with even bigger smiles.  They had so much fun!  Watching their dance performance was a FAVORITE!


This girl was STOKED about her Starbucks cup.  haha!  She is a mess, but her personality is my FAVORITE.  She is ME as a seven-year-old!

When I picked the big kids up from school this week, I told them we were gonna drive through Starbucks.  I usually make an afternoon cup of coffee and this particular day I couldn't get to the coffee pot.  Our garbage disposal was leaking and we had NO clue until our hardwood floor started buckling.  The guy came to take out all the wet pieces of wood and had the kitchen all taped off.

When we got home, it looked like this!  I'm so thankful the floor started buckling when it did or it'd still be leaking.  Our kitchen is a bit of a disaster right now, which isn't a FAVORITE, but no leaky water under the sink sure is! 


I teamed up with Fancy Ashley to host a FALL GIVEAWAY!  Giveaways are my FAVORITE!  It's a good one!  You can enter here.


Some of our FAVORITE friends brought home their new baby girl this week.  We were at the airport ready to greet them as soon as they arrived.  This kid was PUMPED about seeing Ashby Shull!  #hisfavorite

The sign crew was representin'.  They looked GREAT!

THEY MADE IT!  WAHOO!  Welcome Home, Madeley Shull!  Oh my goodness!  That baby is precious!

These two melted my heart!  Bowen missed Ashby with his whole heart.  #ithinkthefeelingismutual He loves that girl, so they were pumped about seeing each other.

All the kids were hugging.  Everyone was hugging Shay and gazing sweetly at Madeley when Tab went in for a hug!  haha!  Andrew looks a little nervous in this picture.

Andrew was just kind of standing there taking it all in and didn't see it coming.  Everyone was laughing.  It's probably hard to explain in words, but it was funny!  

Reunited and it feels so good!


The girlfriends were in attendance!  I'm so glad to have these ladies in my corner.

We're so incredibly happy for these six!  Having such faithful friends who are the hands and feet of Jesus is such a blessing.  We're so thankful to have this group in our lives.  A FAVORITE moment from the week!


It's college week at the big kids' school and yesterday was "Your Future's So Bright"-wear neon day.  A FAVORITE for Nixon.  His closet consists of pretty much only neon.


On Monday, we're chatting all things ENTERTAINMENT!  Share books, movies, television shows, and more.  You should join us!  

Hope you have a GREAT weekend!  XOXO
