Life lately and something kind of exciting!

NBD this Cars Bubble Blowing Machine has just taken over our life.
He is obsessed.
It's half off right now and if you have a little toddler I would highly suggest you invest 10 dollars for their happiness :)

Ryan's first pair of Nike Frees to match the rest of us. Kills me.
(( you can find them HERE ))

When did you get so big child!?!?

Football season is totally here.
Yay for Fall!!
(( Even though it is still so dang hot in Texas - I like the thought of Fall HA ))

My husband might be a little too excited about it. 

He got Ryan all pumped up for the season and has Ryan glued to ESPN lately.
(( I'm totally outnumbered ))

Said goodbye to the most beautiful mountains today! ( more to come on our little Utah trip soon! )

ANNND for the really exciting part,

Last week we signed the papers on our very first little HOME!!!!
We chose a floor plan and decided to build.

Oh my gosh, we are so excited.
(( Slightly clueless about what we are doing, but so excited! ))

It's been in the making for a while,
but because of a couple bumps in the road we are just now making it official  :)


I have to pick out everything in my whole house THIS WEEK
( talk about pressure )
and they start building in about 3 weeks!

Aaron got his first REAL life paycheck as an attorney - SO WEIRD!

We are just feeling like mega adults right now and we are pretty giddy about it.

Happy Happy Friday Darlings!
