Can we just take a moment to talk about the fact that it's OCTOBER?! It's that crazy to anyone else but me? Where has the time gone? I had such a fun (but stressful) week I'm excited to head to Atlanta this weekend to spend time with the fam bam.

I get to meet my newborn niece for the first (!!) time and I start to cry just thinking about it. But once I get back (hopefully on time due to this hurricane) it's going to be ALL baseball for the month. Postseason is almost here and I'm so excited!!

ONE / Barbour Experience
I had one of the coolest experiences this past Friday with Barbour. It was SO much fun and I can't wait to show you more in the coming weeks. They took a bunch of us (Katie and Carly included) up to Millbrook, NY to the Orvis Shooting grounds for a day full of practice fly fishing, clay shooting and off roading with Land Rover!
I also snagged this jacket and hat while on the trip. Already excited to wear it again!

TWO / Sorority Girls "Watch" a D-Backs game
This video is SO funny. I watched it at work this morning and now I think I've seen it about 30 times showing it to other peoples. The girls look silly yes, but the announcers are SO funny. They make the video. Be sure to watch the whole thing!

THREE / Site Design
You might have noticed the blog got a new look! I'm still in the process of working out the kinks and writing a lot of fun content but until then, look around and let me know what you like! I'm still on blogger and I used (and highly recommend) Designer Blogs!

FOUR / 25% off Barbour
Speaking of Barbour there are a ton of jackets right now that are 25% off! This NEVER happens. I'm alsooooo giving away a Barbour jacket on Instagram as well! Be sure to enter :)

FIVE / Bras!
You guys are AWESOME and so helpful. Last week I asked for advice on a bra and they were all great. I ended up going to Nordstrom and finding the Natori line and really like it! I ended getting three bras: two of the t-shirt bras and one of the contour bra.
While I was thankful to find these, I'm a little upset with Norstrom in general. Don't get me wrong, I love the store, but their selection of full coverage, supportive and no extra padding bras for girls were so minimal. The woman helping me said it wasn't in 'style' and the more full coverage bras were for older women and ones without underwire. It was just so bizarre to me! It's not like I'm asking for much. I think I found two lines I really liked? 
In the end it all worked out but it was just so weird to me!


  1. Haha! I saw that video on Facebook. One takes a picture with a churro while the other glorifies her hot dog. I am so excited for October! Birthday month!

  2. OMG that's so cool you got to got fly fishing with Orvis! And clay shooting?! Love! So much fun! I love that video! Those poor alpha chis, clearly having a sisterhood event, at least they enjoyed themselves! Also I have really noticed that there are fewer and fewer full coverage bras. If you like how the Natoris fit I would buy some of the feathers ones online! I love those too along with CK and Chantelle! :) Have a great weekend!

  3. Love the new blog look! Yay for time spent at home & meeting your new niece!
