Thoughts on Monday

  • We went to the mall on Saturday in search of shorts for Jon and although we were unsuccessful, we found some deals. I am just gonna say a few things about the mall...I hate them. I never go to malls and when I do, it is not this one. I also hated how it was littered with tweens and teens giggling their way through Victoria's Secret. Very awkward when I am stocking up on my 5 for $25 cotton panties next to skater boy 15 year olds. I don't even like Jon to come in that store with me...
  •  We are 5 days away from our Halloween party and our costumes are complete. I can't wait!! This party has been something Jon has been talking about for years, that once we move into a big house, we are gonna have a big party.
  • You have 1 more day to enter the October group giveaway!  
  • Did y'all see the recipe Allison posted on my blog on Saturday? Caramel apple cheesecake bars...wowwww
  • Because no post is interesting without pictures...

Surprisingly his calves fit into these skinnies, but we didn't end up buying them


Team Jesse #breaking bad

Mr. Ernie may recycle his shark costume from last year but I think he likes this Boo bandana better

Embry is 3 weeks old!

There are 5 games going on right here...thank God for brother in laws!

Oh how I hate malls, I used to work in one for a few years, and dealing with that for 2 christmas seasons was enough! I love the boo bandana, I want to get my frechie a new costume!

Ooooh I'm so jealous you are having a Halloween party!! I've never been to one and we finally have a decent size place to I one, but we don't know anyone our age yet. :-/ might be a setback lol
The malls here right outside dc are so awesome. No Tweens or teens that giggle while you buy underwear. (I can't say panties...it weirds me out lol) so hint hint come on over ;-)

Kait said...

Love that football set-up :) And the fact that the mister allowed you to take his photo in those skinnies. Good weekend all around :) XO

Lani Derrick said...

I totally agree about everything you said about the mall. I can't stand it and go twice a year to have my wedding ring looked at. Otherwise no thank you!

Mason's Mama said...

I'm so with you on the Mall thing! Glad we don't have one in our little town. :) Cute pictures as always. Hope y'all had a great weekend.

Shannon Marie said...

Amen to your comment about VS! I seriously only go in there if the store is dead... I don't need a 15-year-old helping me pick out my panties!

Jessi Bridges said...

I am not a fan of the mall anyways! Back in high school I was a total "mall rat" but now I just can't stand all the people and the prices. Haha, signs I'm getting old?

Can't wait to see your costumes!! I love Halloween! I need to finish making Isaac's costume this week.

Brooke Houston said...

VS-ew... I hate malls too.
skinnies- hilar! that was a joke, right? haha
Can't wait to see y'alls costumes!!!

Jenn @ What You Make It said...

Seriously, about the skater boys in Victoria's Secret! I generally turn right around and leave if I catch any guys in there. I'm not a big fan of being ogled while I buy a bra. And those cheesecake bars sound fab!

oh yah i went to the mall briefly on saturday and i realized how much i hate the mall. i even pre-planned my trip where i would park so i could as quickly hop in and hop out, so that my mall entrance was closest to the store i was going to visit and visit in under 10 minutes all because i hate the mall

I really don't like the mall. It's too crowded and always has so many pre-teens/tweens/teens or whatever their called pretending to be all that. Plus I really don't like paying retail tax. Anyways, like I said it before your husband is so fashionable! I can't wait to see what you decide to dress Ernie as. Have a wonderful Halloween party!

Jessica said...

LOVE your blog. I think the mall is okay but it has become over run by tweens and teens so it is sometimes annoying. I prefer just single stores or good will. that baby is SO adorable and her name is beautiful too!! I hope you have a great rest of your week! thanks for sharing your monday thoughts!

I like one mall we have here.. Out of like 10

Miki {Becoming What I Always Was} said...

I am not a big mall person either. I don't like that there are vendors jumpin out in my face to try and curl my hair or give me lotion. It bugs me! Also malls seem to be more expensive then... well TJ maxx :) Also I love Ernie. He's perfect in his bandana.

Yep, believe it or not, I hate the mall too! I typically only go to the Domain, Target and Old Navy. And since we have two parties Friday, would we be losers if we showed up at your house at 8:00 and stayed until about 9:30? I REALLY MUST meet you!! xoxo

misty said...

the mall just isn't what it used to be. i am SO not a fan of it anymore. for exactly the same reasons you listed above.
and by the fact that some of what i see at the mall by way of how teenagers dress nowadays is down right appalling!! and i'm only 31.

Erin said...

Aw the puppies are so so cute, and little Embry? She is just darling! :)

Hope you have a lovely week, friend!

Kristen said...

My boyfriend has that breaking bad shirt! Love it. & your dog is the cutest thing ever!

Amanda said...

I'm with you on the malls. Hopefully you'll have better luck next time!

Claire-Christine said...

HAHA puppy son and sister doggie...I love you Ruthie ;-) Ernie looks really cute in orange. I think he needs a pumpkin hat (little tiny one) in between those giant ears of his! Baby E is just as cute as ever! I got to hold a new baby this past weekend...my cousin just had a little girl and her name is Mikayla Theresa...she's beautiful!!

Amanda said...

5 games on at once?! That's crazyness. I'm assuming that they are big into fantasy football. I think it's so funny that Jon tried on skinny jeans :) And I love Ernie in his bandana. Louie does not wear bandanas...because tries to rip them off!

Chelsea said...

Excited to see photos of your costumes and party- I bet y'all have a blast!
