Goodbye Halloween, Hello Thanksgiving.

Another Halloween has come and gone.
What were you for Halloween?

The girls and I at work dressed up like the cast of Napoleon Dynamite.
If I do say so myself, we looked really legit.
Take a peek-I was Kip.
Taylor's sister Mariah was here from California
with her baby Luke and I was able to spend Saturday with her and Mama Hawkins!
We did pumpkins that night with the family (minus Tay, as he was working) but
it sure was a grand old time! And happy 50th birthday to Mama Hawkins last Tuesday!
For her birthday, Taylor and I threw her a surprise Murder Mystery Masquerade party-it was a blast!
Now that Halloween is done, on to Thanksgiving!
Then the best time of the year-CHRISTMAS!

Get 1 of Tay's Christmas presents.

It's that time of the year again-scarf time.

Sunday Funday

Hello everyone!
So I was looking at my statistics today, and guess what?
I have 52 page views!
That is awesome.
Keep 'em coming!

Okay, so who has seen
Pretty Little Liars?

Yes, I am a 14 year old girl that gets kicks
from watching ABC Family
(and my husband frequently reminds me of it),
but I am HOOKED on this show.
If you haven't seen it, you need to.
You'll be hooked.
Last Tuesday was the summer season finale
and I seriously crapped my pants.
Literally...hands pulling at my hair
eyes wide
mouth gaping open
with drool slipping out of it...
(no, just kidding...that was just for dramatic effect, ya know)

Who else out there was freaking?

Oh and also, I want every single piece of clothing the girls
wear in this show.
EPIC fashion choices.
Love it.

So not much is new on my end.
My cute husband brought me home an old guitar
his mom had in their basement
and is going to (eventually) teach me to play.

Now for the best part of the blog:

Read my scriptures everyday.
(I'm not too good at this)

Okay, so I cannot get enough of this beauty.
You can find it here, or a similar one here from good ol' Target.

Until next time;

Real Hooker Saloon

Last night my lovely husband and I enjoyed the annual
Back-To-School Saloon at the Real Hooker Saloon
hosted by our very good friend Drew VanDyke.

The entertainment was as clever as ever, and the IBC's just as fresh.

One of the highlights this year was that Tay did a demonstration on "how to shave a mustache" at Barber Tay's Barber Shop.
(Made by yours truly.)
It was seriously hysterical.

Another great part of last night was the "Kershisters"
(the Kershisnik Sisters)
and their rendition of a Bob Dylan song.
I recorded a part of it, but of course it wouldn't load on here.
But they were AMAZING.

Needless to say, the night was very fun!
Hopefully there will be pictures up soon that I can share with you.

So now it's time for our Blog segment:

Take my workouts to the max & eat fruit everyday.

Check these out.
I am literally drooling over these.
They're a bit expensive, but worth it?

Check out this blog.
I found it off Pinterest and they have some awesome recipes!!
I'm all for new favorites, like THESE:

In With The New

So, new blog!
I'm excited to start new!
It's been so long since I've even blogged.

I have officially been married for a year and two months in five days!
And it just keeps getting better! Truly!

So, a short catch-up...

We have a new little kitten, Charlie! He's about four months old, and FULL of energy!
He's our sanity before we have little Ashley's and Taylor's running around.

Secondly, I'm officially done organizing and designing our house! It feels great!
I pretty much got most of my ideas from Pinterest, which is just the greatest thing ever.

I have been moved up to designing at work (at the vinyl lettering store)
for the past few months, and it's been really fun!
If you're interested in looking at what we have to offer, check out

Tay and I took family pictures with my family when we went to visit in May. 
Here are a few!

Tay and I also got some 1-year anniversary pictures taken, too!
 This is one of my favorites.

So school starts in like, a week! Can you believe it?
I can't.
This summer went so fast! It's insane!
However, I am excited to be done with hot weather.
I'm ready for scarves, jeans, sweaters, jackets, and boots!

Welp, that's about it!
I'll keep you posted on what's happenin' in the Hawkins household.

I'm going to be posting a goal, and a new favorite fashion item at the end of each of my blogs.
It helps me keep my thoughts together, and let's you all know what I'm crushin' on in the way of style.

Make a conscious effort to stop gossip and drama in the work place.


I've really been digging all the new Indie boots that I've seen around!
These are my favorite so far.
You can find them at H&M for only $25!
You can bet these will be my next purchase!
So cute, right?
