The thing is, I haven't known what the hell to post the last two days since I have actually been able to, so I just didn't.
But I need to try to jump back into it.
So what better way than with a shit ton of link ups all in one post?
It'll be a little lengthy.
At least it gives me stuff to talk about! ;-)
Today I'm linking up with a lot of lovely ladies for about 4 different link ups! Pretty sure this is my first time doing a 5 on Friday & I'm not entirely sure if there is a certain thing you're supposed to do...so here's to winging it!. Linking up with Darci, April, Natasha, and Christina.
Two....It's also Football Friday. I unfortunately don't really have much to contribute. I have no food ideas, or outfit ideas or anything like that. Sunday DirecTV had a "free sample day" for NFL Sunday Ticket -which I don't have-, so I decided to take advantage of it. I live in GA and while my Top NFL team is the Atlanta Falcons, I also follow 3 teams out of my region so I miss actually getting to watch A LOT of games. Well, I still ended up missing huge chunks of them since 3 games were on at the same time. It's so hard to juggle! Anyone else had Sunday Ticket? If so, do you find it better or worse as far as keeping up with all the games? It aggravated the shit out of me that I would turn it to one game and they see a bad play or two only to finally switch back to another and see that I've missed a good play or two. At the end of the weekend two of my teams had lost & 3 had won, I will take that. I am still on cloud 9 about that UGA/USC game. This weekend/week I'm hoping that My Falcons & Bengals can pull out a win, and my Dawgs are on a bye week, so they'll be back next weekend. I'm so glad Erin, Erin & Tiffany are going to periodically have this link up going on throughout Football season, maybe next time I will have something better or more to contribute! I'm excited to hop around and read others posts.
Three....Wish my Daddy, bro & hubs luck! They are leaving tomorrow for the night for a gator hunt! Last year my brother was drawn for it & he nabbed a 5 footer. This year my dad was chosen so I really, really hope my Daddy can get one! He'll be just so excited. It was supposed to be 2 nights, but he couldn't get Monday off of work so they had to shorten it to one night. Since Doug already took Monday off for it, I told him that he and I could do something! So I'm excited to get to spend a weekday with my man. It really is kind of different from a weekend, especially during school, not quite as many kids out. We were thinking about going to the Zoo! But we'll see what the forecast looks like.
Four....Stuff to do! This weekend isn't too planned for me. It'll just be my mom, myself and my nephew on Saturday & the main plan is his baseball practice. I'm excited to see him finally be able to play sports, even though it's not on our county. So, other than that it will be relatively low key, aside from helping my mother clean her room. Next weekend is Nopi Nationals & I'm excited to go and see how it is, compared to the last time we went (2007..or 8). I don't like change and it's at a different venue now that's it's returned. It started back last year, but my brother's gator hunt fell on the same weekend & so I sucked it up and let Doug go to that instead of us going to the car show, with the condition that next year (aka this year) we were NOT missing it. Now the bummer to that day is that my niece will be here and I won't get to see her. Devastated is an understatement. Then weekend after next is the Fall Out Boy/Panic! At The Disco concert. The fact that I have loved both bands for about 8 years, and the fact that this is Fall Out Boys tour & I bought the tickets back in Feb., or March, not even knowing yet who they would have with them only for it to be announced that it was Panic!,..I mean...it's like fate! It was MEANT to happen! I'm SO stoked for this! The rest of September looks good.
Five....Helene did a "Songs That Define Me" link up yesterday & luckily it's still open. Being a avid music lover, I was excited to hear about this, but then quickly realized how hard it is to picks songs the truly, truly define you. I mean everyone has "their" song(s), their favorite songs, or whatever. But think about it, what song(s) define you. My answer right now is simply, I really don't know. So, I chose a few songs that I love & that may have some meaning or bring some level of comfort to me. Since I'm doing a 5 on Friday, I'll stick with the 5 theme & pick 5 songs.
1. Linkin Park- Crawling
2. Incubus- Pardon Me
3. Jessie J- Who You Are
A song about being true to yourself. Who couldn't benefit from a song about that?! It's amazing. If you haven't listened to it before, go ahead and do yourself a favor. I have to take this song in from time to time. It so easy to beat yourself up or compare yourself to others. Jessie J is awesome. Check her out.
5. Zac Brown Band- Chicken Fried
I'll leave you today with Eminem's new song!
"Take your shoes off, let your hair down, go berzerk! All night long!"
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
Oh & Happy Birthday 20th to Niall! :p
