War Eagle!

I hope that everyone had a fantastic Labor Day weekend! My favorite part of Labor Day weekend is football! This is the opening weekend for most college football games, and Auburn usually plays at home. We start planning our tailgate in the summer and the countdown begins weeks out.
I love Auburn! The four years I spent here (not to mention all the Saturdays I spent here before that) are some of my best memories. My parents met here and I met my husband here. My uncle and my sister also went to Auburn. Things are different here, everyone is nice to each other and we treat each other like one big family. Here are some pictures from Saturday. Sorry that they are so small, I had to take them off of facebook!

At noon, the bells play the fight song!

Me with my hubby! Please excuse the plastic orange fence, apparently they are building a giant building right next to our tailgate!

One of my best friends, Lauren. While she didn't go to Auburn, she is a huge fan and she and her husband have season tickets every year. That is just what Auburn does to people!

My family! We love spending almost every Saturday in the fall together in one of our favorite places in the world!

I'll probably be posting more pictures throughout the season. Wait till you see pictures of our tailgate! We have 4 giant tents, we line the ground with astro-turf, we bring a 55" plasma tv to watch all of the days games off of the satellite, and the food is always amazing!

In other news, today is September 7! Do you know what that means? True Prep comes out today! I pre-ordered mine from Amazon and expect it to be at my door when I get home this afternoon! I can't wait to go home and pour a glass of wine before settling in to start reading! I can't wait to get started and see what other people have to say about it tommorow!

Have a great short week and I look forward to seeing you back here tomorrow! Happy Reading!

Pink and Green Thursday!

In honor of Pink and Green Thursday, I want to share some of my favorites from the Fall Lilly Pulitzer collection. I have a 20% off coupon for Belk this weekend and I'm hoping to get my hands on at least one of these beauties!
Next weekend is the Patron Party for the Junior League of Atlanta Ball. Basically it is a cocktail party at a really nice home in Atlanta for all the people who have paid top dollar for the Ball in November and they give out awesome goody bags filled with swag. I want to try this dress on and see what the material is to see if this would be a great cocktail dress for the party! It makes a statement, but it is a simple shape and the sleeve makes it perfect for a September party.

Summer is my favorite time of the year. I hate the onset of fall because it means that winter is close behind. However, I think I could brave the cold (it usually drops down to the 40s and sometimes 30s on really cold days) if I had this sweater. Fortunately it is still in the 90s around here, so this purchase might have to wait. Maybe it will even go on sale before I need it! I love that the model is wearing flats with bare feet. My husband is originally from Ohio (luckily he doesn't ever want to go back!), and when we visit for Thanksgiving or Christmas, I never wear the "right clothes." Last year we met some of our friends at a bar and one of the guys noticed I wasn't wearing socks. Apparently northern girls wear socks during the winter? The only socks I own are for wearing with tennis shoes. They still tease me about it.

Oh, how I adore my strapless dresses. I believe that they can be worn year round with a cardigan. I guess that's the southern in me! Did I mention I hate winter clothes?

This is just such a great dress for fall! It is still bright and fun, but the sleeve makes it feel fall. It is perfect for our falls that last until November!

What are your favorites?
