in girl world...

...halloween is the one day of the year where you can dress like a slut and get away with it.
am i right??

and then there are those who miss the slut rule and come to the party dressed like this...

epic fail.

when you were a kid, halloween was used for an excuse to eat all the candy you wanted to, and carving pumpkins was one of the highlights of your year.
and let's not forget trick-or-treating dressed in some of the silliest costumes ever!

and when you get older this is what halloween turns into...

you start out by showing a little bit of skin, and then you get a little braver and start dressing like this...

and then you decide to dress it up a bit and add some wings...

and then there are those years when you procrastinate so much you end up just putting beer boxes over your head and calling it a costume...

so with that said, go out tonight and go all out!  whether you decide to follow the slut rule or not, just have a good time!

i'll be spending tonight on my couch with some wine and a good movie.  too cold to go venture out in my little tinkerbell tutu :-)

happy halloween y'all!

a hurricane, blog hop, and another liebster nomination!

first and foremost... i just want to send out some prayers to all those who were affected by this horrible storm last night!  i hope non of you were in the path of sandy, and if so my thoughts and prayers are definitely with you!

so everytime a natural disaster happens in this country i get cracked up at the number of fake reports and pictures i see circling the web..
did anyone see this famous pic yesterday??

at first i thought... wtf??? that is crazy, bye nyc!  and then i realized, wait a sec that's definitely a shot from "the day after tomorrow".  really people come on!

just redonkulous!

so anyway did any of you lovely ladies get any snow last night?
we sure didn't...
i have to admit that i acted a little like a first grader when i woke up and didn't see any snow outside.  i felt like a kid on christmas who doesn't get the present from santa they were hoping for. :(  very disappointed!!

so on with my post for the day.
i'm doing my very first gfc blog hop today!
linking up with jen over at "mama said there'd be days like this"

hop on over to her cute blog and check it out!

so as i posted yesterday, i was nominated for the liebster award.  well i found out yesterday i was nominated again by sweet whitney over at "life alaskin style".

and because i love answering everyone's questions, i thought i would include hers in today's blog post.  so here we go :-)

1.  Head back to about the year 2000.  Backstreet boys or *Nsync?
definitely backstreet boys
2.  What is your dream job?  Like literally if you could do anything to make money, what would it be?
well i do enjoy my job that i have right now, but i'd have to say that if i could do anything it would be to open up a cute little boutique and be my own boss.
3.  What's your favorite holiday? Why?
that's easy.. christmas!  and no not because of presents, but because of what this holiday actually means.  and since i've gotten older i don't really care about the "getting" it's the "giving" that i care about, and the meaning of christmas.  i also love all of the decorations, music, and holiday food too!
4.  What is your favorite childhood memory?
favorite childhood memory would have to be going to texas every summer to see my dad.  we would spend all summer long out there and always had so much fun!

5.  Dogs, cats, or both?

6.  Where would you live if you could choose?
honestly i don't think i would ever want to live anywhere else.  i tried that once and hated it!

7.  What is your biggest pet peeve?
when people don't answer their phone... even though i'm guilty of that too lol

8.  If you had to be stuck inside a Disney movie, which one would you choose?
oh wow good question... i'm gonna have to say cinderella, only if i could be her in the movie.

9.  What is your go-to beauty product at the moment that you can't live without?
my bare essentials concealer. best stuff ever!

10.  Gold or Silver?
platinum! haha jk i'm not really that high maintenance... silver!

11.  Have you ever been to Alaska?  Would you visit if you could?
never been, but always wanted to visit!  it looks beautiful! 

so there ya have it folks!  now i want to give a shout out to a couple of bloggers before i head to lunch.  these two lovely ladies are very new to blogging and need some followers!  go check out tiffani's new blog at tiffani and everything her

well that's all for today!  happy tuesday :-)

good morning loves.
i hope you all had a fabulous weekend!  our was quite eventful.  fun times and thankfully no hangover, although i can't say the same for my husband.  he spent all day yesterday asleep.

so first i'm linking up with sami for my usual weekend update and then i have some exciting news to tell you about :-)

so we celebrated halloween this weekend by going to the casino in cherokee to see lil jon.  well lil jon decided not to show up.  what?!? yeayahhh he didn't show up.
a no show!

but we ended up having a great time anyway.  and yours truly was one of the finalists in the costume contest along with these lovely ladies.

i was tinkerbell minus the wand, which i left at home... :(
my husband decided to just go as himself instead of the hillbilly he was going to go as

(please excuse our friend matt for photobombing)


so as i said before we ended up having a blast and dancing our asses off. 
and sunday was a day for recovery :-)

so on to my exciting news...
i was nominated for the liebster award!!!!!
a big shout out to sam over at life as mrs. b for nominating me!!
go check out her blog if you haven't yet because it is super cute and her little boy is absolutely adorbs!!!

so what is the liebster award you ask??  the liebster award is given to up and coming bloggers with less than 200 followers, and i am thrilled to have been nominated!

so here are the rules for the liebster nominations...


each person must post 11 things about themselves

they must answer the questions that the nominator set for them plus create 11 questions for the others that they nominate

choose 11 people to nominate, link them in your post, and let them know you nominated them!

*no tag backs*

*11 things about me*

1. i'm a newlywed and just celebrated one year of marriage with my handsome hubby
2. we have two furbabies who we treat just like children. they are seriously spoiled rotten.
3. my favorite food is pasta with butter and parmesan cheese.
4. one of my favorite things to do is sit in front of the tv and watch a chick flick while reading a girlie magazine and drinking a glass of wine.
5. i'm a huge worrier. i worry about everything :(
6. i'm the oldest of 6 children
7. i've been to i think 43 of the 50 us states.
8. i moved to atlanta to get the "big city" experience when i was 23 and moved back home a year later.
9. i live in a very small town in the mountains of western north carolina.  so small in fact that we actually just upgraded to a super wal mart...
10. i'm obsessed with jessica simpson.
11. i used to clog and i still do on occasion when wine is involved :-)

*11 questions*

1. Do you believe in love at first sight?
no i do not.  maybe lust at first sight, but definitely  not love at first sight.  i think you need to get to know the person before falling in love with them.

2. What is your most embarrassing moment? 
well i've had a few of those in my days.  i've fallen flat on my face in front of people, and i've had my share of embarrassing drunken moments as well.  so i can't say that i've had just one notable embarrassing moment that overseas the rest of them.

3. How old were you when you had your first kiss?
sweet sixteen :-)
4. What was your favorite TGIF show growing up?
favorite tgif show would have to have been boy meets world!  i loved cory and topanga.
5. If you were a Disney princess who would you be?
i was obsessed with the little mermaid when i was growing up so i would have to say ariel.

6. If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go?
oh that is easy... italy!!
7. What would be number one on your bucket list?
well number one on it right now is to visit all 50 states.  it just seems realistic considering i've been to almost all of them :-)
8. How many times a day do you check Facebook? {or twitter, instagram, blog..}
oh gosh... um alot!  instagram not so much, my blog is number one on that list and facebook would have to be number 2.
9. What would your favorite date night be? A night in? Or a night on the town?
definitely a night in.  i'd much rather be in my cozy house with my husband and enjoying a home cooked meal!  and the bonus is if you happen to get a little wine drunk, you don't have to drive home!
10. What was the best gift you ever received?
i've had alot of great gifts, but the one that sticks out most in my head is a few years ago when my grandmother gave all of the grandchildren an entire album of our baby pictures.  it had so many that i had never even seen before.  it was very sweet.  my engagement ring would have to be up there on the list too.  it was custom made from his grandmothers diamonds on both sides of his family.  they are over 100 years old!!! yeah he did good :-)

thanks again to sam for nominating me and i encourage all of you to go visit her blog and of course the ones i nominated.  they all have super cute blogs :-)
well i hope you all have a fabulous monday!!

dear lil jon

super stoked that i get to see you this weekend.  kinda sad that you're not bringing the ying yang twins though.  and please excuse my husbands attire he will be wearing, he thinks it will be hilarious to dress like a hillbilly going to a lil jon concert.... 


dear super wal mart 

i'm going to try and avoid you at all cost this weekend.  

 dear katy perry

we get it... you're voting for obama.  but do you really have to announce it on your clothes?

dear taylor swift

that i almost cried last night when i went to go rent magic mike and found out that they were all out!!! don't they know to stock up extra on those types of movies.. geez!

that i went to two grocery stores yesterday looking for coffee mate pumpkin spice creamer.

that i started following holly madison on instagram the other day.  i wish girls next door still aired :(

my new fashion statement

so i decided last night that i'm starting a new fashion trend.

no it's not new shoes, or a fabulous new scarf, or even a new purse.
my new fashion statement is...
the armor of god

 so i've been a little down in the dumps lately...
i'm in a rut that i can't seem to get myself out of.
does anyone else feel that way from time to time?

 i feel like the reason i get in these moods sometimes is because i've drifted away from god. 
i admit it. 
i haven't been living the way that i should.
prayer has not been a part of my everyday life like it should.
...and my bible has been closed for a while.
and it's actually starting to collect dust.
not good!

 i go through phases of doing really good praying, reading my bible and actually studying the word, and then i drift away from it.  that's what has happened to me lately.  i've drifted away from the one person who you should be able to go to about anything.
my husband and i had a conversation about this last night.  first of all let me just say that i am so thankful for my husband.  he was raised in a very strict christian home.  he knows the bible and is very educated about these types of things.  he told me a story about him and his brother when they were growing up.  their mom would gather them at the front door every morning before leaving for school and they would all hold hands and put on their armor of god.  just like anything else they would put on for school.  it was a part of their daily wardrobe. 

i thought this story was so sweet, and then i realized that i had never been taught about the armor of god.  i had no clue what it was about.  
ephesians 6:11
"Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil."

after reading about this i realized that all of these negative feelings were works of satan himself.  i had been forgetting to put a very important piece of wardrobe on each day... my armor.

just like soldiers at war, we face a battle everyday.  this world is full of sin and negativity and by putting on the armor of god each morning you are shielding yourself from those daily battles.  
now i confess that i am not perfect. there are many things i do on a daily basis that would not make god happy.  i sin everyday.

we all do.
nobody lives a perfect life.  some may want you to think that way, but believe me they don't.  so i challenge each of you to put on your armor each morning.

start your day right by putting on your armor.  make this a daily routine that you just have to do.

i know i'm going to start doing a better job of being an example of god.
when you're in the car each morning, instead of listening to that gossip radio show, turn on some christian music.  i did that this morning and i can already tell you that my day is much brighter today than they have been. 

i would like to ask all of my readers to say a little prayer for me.  pray that i will overcome these negative feelings, and do a better job of living by faith.  
i pray that each of you are blessed today by reading this.  i know that this is more of a serious post, but like i said in a previous blog sesh... i blog so i can write about what i want, and today i felt that god was pushing me to write this post today.  so put on that armor girls! i think in this world we live in today, we need it more than ever before...

love you all!

weekend love

hello loves!
i hope you are all having a fabulous monday.
shall we link up for the weekend update?
i think so!


first of all zoe says hi!  ;-)

anyway my husband runs a local appliance store in town and they had their customer appreciation day saturday, so guess what the wifey got to do...

that would be me, the lovely grill master herself.
i got to cook for all of the customers and hang out with this dude all day

ol' john is the grill rep that my husband works with.  he's a pretty cool guy and a great cook!

so my best julia rose came to franklin this weekend to visit, and well we all know what happens when she comes to town...


circle of death.

and of course, dancing.

we got a little crazy saturday night :-)

our long lost friend tommy moved back recently, and came to hang out too!

and then there was more dancing.

and sunday was just another sunday in the gilbreath house.  lazyness, cleaning, and snuggle time with the fur babies.  
well that's all for my amazing and crazy weekend.
until next time.
