Luke Bryan...and the Little Things

Hello, cyber world!  Yes, it's me, huffing and puffing as I'm running to catch up with life.  That Life is a fast one.  Just when you think you've got a handle on her, she goes and decides to fly by quicker than ever before.  She's sly like that; trying to sneak October through the door without you noticing September's gone.  October will be a big month for the Sauder girls.  The Kid turns another year older, (the big can she be that old?!) and to honor her we're going to the happiest place on earth, Disney World!!

What you are about to see is the most random conglomeration of pictures in my attempt to make a dent in my happenings lately.  A few weeks ago some friends and I went to the Luke Bryan concert.  Two words for you: Hip Thrusts.  If I had a dollar for every time that boy thrust his hips I could probably quit my job and be just fine.  Now don't get me wrong, I didn't hate it, but it did throw me off a bit.  My group thought we were so smart by using a promo code for pre-sale tickets, but let me just tell you, if you have a fear of heights, you would not have made it in our seats.  I could have touched the back wall of the place.  :) But did that stop our high-pitched screams, fist pumps, and sweet dance moves? No sirree.  That guy was amazing.

Thought I'd help you out with an arrow because that's as good as I could get from where we were.  His opening acts were amazing! Florida Georgia Line & Thompson Square. 

Part of the crew
I'll spare you the rest of my hundred pics from the concert, because with the combination of a camera phone and our seats, they're just really not worth sharing.

On to a few of my favorite things lately.....and it's clear I'm all about the little things here.

This book was recommended to me by a teacher and I have absolutely loved it! Seriously, check it out.

Yes, confession.  I've recently picked up a new hobby of going to the Zumba classes at the YMCA and I love it!  Do I look like a fool? Most definitely.  Is it full of old people? Sometimes.  But I've found it's the one thing that can actually make me smile while working out.   

The stupid picture won't turn, but this water bottle has been the best $12 spent in months.  Thank you, Target!
Seriously,'s the little things.

Labor Day Weekend

We've enjoyed our first three day weekend and Jana's Labor Day Recap is so good, I'll let you check hers out and will leave you with just a few pics.

Birthdays were celebrated, laughs were had, ladder ball was played, and the boy team was dominated.  (*cough cough* The Kid and are undefeated) Enjoy the pics!

This lovely bouquet arrived in my classroom last week after I finished my Master's degree. Thanks Mom & Dad! 
The fall decor is in its place and football is in full swing.  Now for the cooler weather...Happy Fall!
