Weekend Ramblings: September Edition

It’s College football day! I will be spending the day in front of the television preparing for the LSU game. I can’t wait! I hope you all have a great weekend, here are a few random ramblings for you:

1.) Verizon sent me an external battery for my Blackberry, and it’s so convenient! It is especially great when I am out somewhere all day or on a trip and I am using my phone a lot. I hate doing the “conserve battery” thing so it lasts all day, and now I don’t have to, woo hoo! They sent me the Power Pack Slim 2000:


2.) Bobby and I leave for another trip on Wednesday to run runDisney’s Tower of Terror ten miler, so we have been busy cleaning, packing, and doing last minute things like getting the mail held and checking in with the house and dog sitters. I think I am going to just start living out of my suitcase since I seem to do so anyway. If you aren’t following me on Instagram you will miss all my trip photos as they happen!



3.) The winner of my Under Armour sports bra giveaway is Carol Couvillion Landry. Please email me at [email protected] to claim your prize! Don’t forget you can order things from UA by clicking the link on my right sidebar.

4.) I cooked potato soup last night and forgot how much I love it. (I just can’t stand cooking it in the summer when it is so stinkin hot). I have the recipe here, as well as some other good ones.

5.) I am in need of a handful of guest posts for next week. if you are interested please email me at [email protected]. Thanks in advance!

  1. That phone battery looks amazing! Have a great weekend 🙂

  2. I cheer for CU because they’ve got a great mascot. Unfortunately, not that many games are shown in Dallas.

    Speaking of LSU, I love the new commercial with Mike the Tiger.

  3. Lots of Tigers in the SEC, but my favorite – don’t throw anything at me – is the newest Tiger in town… M-I-Z… Z-O-U!!!

    Good luck at TOT.

  4. I’m an Auburn alum… so War Eagle..

  5. I root for my alma mater University of Central Florida! Ran by there this morning and was so happy to see everyone in their black and gold getting ready to tailgate! Good luck on your race next week! I wish I was doing it as I’m only 40 mins away but I didn’t want to spend the $ lol.

  6. I think I need to look into that external battery. Sounds interesting. Have fun at WDW! I’ve been working on my plans for WDW Marathon Weekend.

    My favorite NCAA Football team is the USC Trojans! Fight On!

  7. I am a USF Bull! 🙂 I love that verizon is taking such good care of you!

  8. Robby Bowers says:

    War Eagle!

  9. Oh my gosh that external battery is so awesome. I am constantly on the hunt for an outlet to charge my phone (especially at conferences or when running around from one place to the next).

  10. Georgia Bulldogs! 🙂
