Cleaning for Company

I am taking a break from cleaning my house. The clothes are in the washing machine and the dishes are in the dishwasher. I am getting ready for my houseguests for the weekend. Three people are staying with us from Nashville and we are all going to the football game tomorrow. (they are all Auburn fans) It's going to be a busy weekend; but a fun one. There are several tailgates that we will probably go to as well. So far it's been a great week. My favorite Fall T.V shows have started back. I have also tried two new recipes this week. Very easy but new to me. I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Good buys and Fall weather

I'm sure everyone has noticed that it is getting cooler outside. I love Fall weather. After work I went to Hobby Lobby and bought a Fall wreath. Amy let me know that they were 50% off and so was everything I bought:) Shopping at Hobby Lobby is so much fun. Tonight I made Taco Soup for the first time. It was really easy and good. The only thing I would do different next time is to get the mild version of Rotel tomatoes instead of Original. My nose was running after finishing the soup. I'm looking forward to football this weekend. Lots of good food and tailgaiting. I hope everyone has a good week and weekend. Tomorrow is hump day:)

This weekend was Mason's third visit to Woofstock. Last year he somehow got out of his collar and took off running so we didn't stay very long after that. After putting down a Chick-fil-A sandwich in front of him to lure him back, I snapped on his collar and we left. This year, he seemed to have a little more fun. He got in the pool to cool off his feet and drink the water but never sat down in it. I'm not quite sure what's wrong that he doesn't really like water. He did manage to pee on every tree there and kick up the dirt too. He still is a little scared of other people and won't let any strangers pet him. Petco was giving out gift bags so Mason got a tennis ball, a bandana, and some other dog food. All in all, I think it went pretty well as compared to last year and he pretty much slept the rest of the day. Here he is sporting his new bandana:

The Weekend

I have had a pretty good weekend so far. Friday, I got off work early around 3ish and came home and got laundry out of the way. Friday is laundry day. I got caught up on my lifetime movies that are saved on the DVR. Saturday I made Rotel dip and my sister Heather came over to watch the Auburn game. We made it to the game last week (thanks again Amy for the tickets) along with a funfilled day of tailgaiting but this week we were content with just watching it at home especially since it was such an early game. After it poured in Auburn it headed to Opelika soon after and I fell asleep in the fourth quarter. Last night, Lee and I went to Longhorn and used my birthday giftcard (thanks Dad). I swear there were at least 10 people celebrating their birthdays there last night. As soon as we heard the clapping we knew it was another one. Lee and I started counting after number 4. This morning we went to church and as soon as we got home I changed clothes and went outside to play with Mason. (He hasn't gotten a lot of play time lately as I have been having a lot of school work lately and just took my first test). Lee left not long after that to help my stepfather move a table and about five minutes later I tried to open the door to go back inside and realized the back door was locked. I was locked out! For what seemed like almost an hour was only 20 minutes according to Lee. He didn't realize I was still outside when he locked the door. Oh well, Mason can almost catch a frisbee now. I just took my first test and now I need to get out of the house so Mason is going to get a new collar. Maybe I will find him an Auburn collar. I hope everyone has a great week.
