Weekend Wrap Up

Well Hello Monday and I am just now posting! Its been a few since my last post(which shared my love for Tiger, I know its UGLY but it really did make me laugh out loud)! 

This weekend I feel like was a blur! 
Saturday was gym, cleaning, lunch and movie with Steph.
Its official Eat, Pray, Love is in my top 5 favorite movies! 
I REALLY liked it!! 
I am a Julia Roberts fan but I think I really just liked the story behind it!! I LOVED it and I am sure I will see it again and I am definitely going to read the book!
AND there were some good movie trailers-there is a movie coming out about Facebook that I just might have to check out I cant decide if its scary or not! I DONT DO SCARY!!!! 

Saturday night we had a little Titans Football to watch and I cried!
Yup cried over football! 
Not because we lost but because of this guy

Stafon Johnson 

Last pre-season he was lifting weights and dropped the bar on his chest and he was out all season then this season he comes out in the first pre-season game and hurts his ankle which led to surgery! It was SAD...
It showed him crying and it TORE ME UP!! 

Wow excuse me while I tear up again...
 I dont know if I am upset over him or if I just took the time to blog about football?!?

Yesterday I had some errands to run, typical grocery run and cleaning! I also made a quick trip to the Lebanon Outlet mall where I discovered the Bath and Body Works outlet!! FABULOUS! 
My friend Jana stopped by to use the Cricut and it motivated me to start making Christmas cards!
 You can call me crazy but I have some major traveling coming up and I will be gone more than I will be home so I am starting early!! Oh and Hobby Lobby is full on Christmas Decor so I dont feel that bad!

I want to read/watch Eat Pray Love sooo badly! I don't know what i want to do first!

I hated hearing about the terrible football injury! I was so amazed by him making it back so quickly - i didn't get to watch the game last night (bengals were on in my time zone) but i hated seeing clips of it :( Heartbreaking!

P.S. I can't WAIT for your friday fives this week!!! Right up my alley!!! :D

You got me SO excited for Christmas and Eat, Pray, Love was such a great book :)

Oh I can't wait to see "Eat Pray Love!" I adored the book, and I hope you enjoy it more than the movie because it's a treasure.

I saw the preview for the Facebook movie this weekend too -- we went to see "The Other Guys" -- and I really want to see it! It looks so good. I know the basic story behind it, but I'm curious about the specifics.
