Have you ever had a week that flew by so quickly you did not even realize how much you did? Yep…that was my week! What is it with time seeming to pass faster and faster the older I get!
My week started with watching Dillon suit up for the first time in a Cougar uniform for a football scrimmage. He was so excited and even caught a pass! I’m excited about watching these boys play this year.
Tuesday morning started with a
nervous breakdown opportunity for me to use my problem solving skills at work! It was a really, really long morning but then my boss showed up with this amazing strawberry tart from Cafe Eccell. I think I speak for most of Bryan/College Station when I say we are all excited to see this restaurant back open….it was serious tart withdrawal around here. I may or may not have eaten every bite AND licked the bowl….but there are no witnesses.
On Wednesday I received new skinny jeans just in time for fall from Burlap & Pearls and on the same day this new chambray tunic showed up from Loft! That made it easy to throw these together for an outfit. I definitely see myself wearing this with my cognac boots or leopard flats and a scarf this fall.
This tunic is sold out but an option from J. Crew Factory can be found here and I also think I will be trying these with my navy gingham shirt here
Thursday was our typical day of running from work to pitching lessons and fitting in homework. I failed to meal plan for Thursday so I scrambled (no pun intended) up Mix and Match Mama’s breakfast casserole which can be found here. I never receive any complaints about breakfast for dinner at my house so it was a win all the way around!
And I have been missing out on morning runs with my friends but I logged 3 miles thanks to my new music. I cannot wait until the cooler weather is here to stay…lots of sweating going on here.
Friday I missed out on spending time with dear friends because I was not feeling 100% and needed to rest up before hitting the road on Saturday for Fort Worth. I had been looking forward to Saturday ALL WEEK LONG just to see this boys face and have one of his giant hugs.
Carly and I had fun making our way through Frog Alley to find Riley’s girlfriend, Brooke, who is a TCU cheerleader! Isn’t she adorable?!
We skipped out on the game and headed to the mall to look for a few new fall outfits. Jessica Simpson has a new line of little girls clothes (at least it’s new to me!) and we found this dress that Carly just had to have.
We spent Sunday grocery shopping and stocking up my boys pantry and freezer. It takes a lot to feed boys and when you are in college the easiest option is dining out but that is not in the budget. I have been proud of Riley for being interested in making meals at home.
3 boys live here….and we just took up 2 shelves in the pantry.
And since he does not like raisins which is in most prepackaged trail mix, I mixed him up some trail mix and put it into snack size packages for a quick grab and go.
We had a quick lunch and then it was time to say goodbye….goodbyes are still hard. I miss this kid like crazy but am so happy he found a college that feels like a home away from home. Disclaimer….I made the trip with no eye makeup…and he is really not hating the selfie he is just so sad I’m leaving!
We got home and my other baby was so happy to see me! I seriously cannot believe I am allowing this….I am really not a dog person.
Hoping you all have a super week!
