Today we're headed up to Tallahassee for our 4th annual Sorrick FSU game! Ever since my sister stared college, we've gone up to see her and go to a football game. I cannot wait to see my family and have everyone together and I can't believe next year is our last (engineering is a 5 year program). This year, FSU is actually playing my parents' alma mater, the place they met and the school I almost went to, UTC.

Here's a blast from the past:



We have a running joke that Caroline became my dad's favorite after she was brave enough to ask for a picture with Jack Nicklaus


We had a few big meetings at work this week so one day we all went out for happy hour and I got the best sans-gria. I'm not a huge fan of alcohol so I always look for some fun, non-alcoholic drink and found a great cherry peach sans-gria at Bar Louie.

Our bosses thought it'd be hysterical if they volunteered my friend and me to be the fire safety people for our group and ensure everyone gets out safely. Needless to say, this is a job no one wants but we're going to make the most of it. We did cause quite the scene with these vests on ;)

At work, they're trying to promote some investment opportunities so how do you get people (mainly men) to an event? Bring ice cream from the most popular place in town. I'm not investing, but I did get some good Italian ice!! Goodness, after taking up 3/5 of this post, work was busy this week.

I don't know how this is the last Friday before Thanksgiving and before Christmas officially begins in our household!! Can't wait to go black Friday shopping and enjoy the start of Christmas! I know a lot of people are boycotting black Friday shopping but we honestly love it (as long as we don't go before 9/10pm). That's also when we get the bulk of our Christmas shopping done since everything is such a great deal. What are some of your tactics if you black Friday shop?


  1. Cute vests! How great to make your "new position" fun!

  2. Enjoy your game weekend – sounds like a blast! We’re heading up to Penn State in a little bit for our last weekend – can’t believe football is almost over! You look great in the neon vest!

  3. What a fun weekend y'all have planned!! I am still in shock about Thanksgiving being next weekend, too! So crazy it's the end of the year already. I'm not an alcohol fan either so I always look for fun and fruity non-alcoholic drinks, too lol.

    Have a good weekend! :)
