weekending 9.12

Monday, September 14, 2015
Good morning! I hope you all had a great weekend. I was so happy about the cooler temps we got here in Columbus - it really made football Sunday feel like a true fall day! I was even able to bust out my Cleveland Browns sweater :)

We kicked off the weekend on Friday with a high school football game in the pouring rain (Aaron's son plays defensive on the varsity team). They didn't win, but it was a close game and we were able to stay dry under our giant umbrella!

I went to the salon on Saturday morning to get my hair cut - for the first time in like 8 months. It's shameful. I really have to start going more. I honestly just put it off because my hair is so long, and it's up half the time for work anyway. But I found a great new stylist in Columbus - Jeffrey at Cut N Blow Salon...and he gave me exactly what I asked for :)

Cue wanna-be-mermaid locks...

That night we had one of my favorite dinners to make - Shepherd's Pie.
It's a great, easy meal to throw together on a cool night...definitely a hearty "meat-and-potatoes" style dish! I can't remember if I've shared the recipe before, but I can if any of you are interested! Excuse the iPhone-quality pictures - I'm terrible a food photography ;)

Football Sunday! We took the dogs to the park in the morning and I got one attempt at at selfie with Dexter - he's way too hard to take pictures with - too much energy and turns his head away every time the camera/phone comes his way!

But he sure will pose by himself if he thinks you have a treat ;)
This was a big day because Daddy (Aaron) finally let them play in the backyard. It's been off limits since he laid brand new sod in June! The pups were SOO excited to play, but Aaron nearly had an aneurysm haha! Dexter looks calm here, but this only lasted a good 5 seconds.

We were sad to see the Brownies lose (but who am I kidding - we are used to it at this point haha!) but I was excited to watch a new episode of Fear the Walking Dead last night - do any of you watch this show? It's a new spin off of The Walking Dead and is pretty good so far. I get so annoyed at people in zombie shows though - like, there's a crazy looking man in your house, bent over, eating what looks like an animal...let's NOT walk right up to it!

Anyway...that's it for my weekend recap! Hope your Monday's are off to a good start! 
Linking up with the beautiful Biana over at B Loved Boston! xx 


  1. Your hair turned out fabulous!!! I don't remember if you shared that recipe either - can you please?! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. Your hair looks beautiful! I love The Walking Dead but i've been hesitant to watch the spin-off, mainly just because I feel like I don't need more shows in my life to watch!

  3. Your hair looks SO beautiful! Also that meal looks AMAZING. I would love it!

  4. Your hair is stunning! Definitely need to document fab hair days like that!

  5. You killed it with your hair, my friend. I need to make a Shepherd's Pie!
