Oh Hey Friday!

Hey. Guess what.

It's the last Friday before college football season starts! Yay! By this time next week I will have already tailgated for my first football game of the season and will have attended my first one of the season. If only it were a Clemson game... instead, I will be here:

Football is football though, right?

I'll try to limit the football talk in today's post because trust me, you'll get a lot of it next week and throughout the season. You will probably be sick of it before we're even halfway through the season.

Sorry I'm not sorry.

Is anybody else sad to see summer end? I know I'm excited for football season but I am not excited yet for scarves, peacoats, and boots. I'd like a few more hot, sunny weekends down at the beach before calling it quits for the year!


Ok so I know that I just said that I wasn't ready for fall, but I was ready for some chili this week. I found this recipe for chili last year and absolutely love it. I made a huge pot of it earlier this week and then proceeded to eat it for lunch and dinner for the next three days. Oops. But it is so delicious, especially if you're not a huge fan of beans {yuck!}

Yes, that is zucchini... in chili... and carrots too!

Chick-fil-A, I love you.


Chicken & Waffles are now on the breakfast menu? Yes, please.

I was a little skeptical about moving into an apartment complex that wasn't completely finished yet & having all of this construction going on around me. You know what? I love it. To me it's fascinating to look out my window every day when I get home & see how much has changed since that morning. Nerd status? Yes.

Except for the 5:30am wake up call this morning... that I could do without.

But this? This I need.

I need some Clemson football back in my life. 8 days to go!
