About the leopard print…

Naturally, I watched the CMA’s last night {if you didn’t know that I LOVE country music… you do now} and to my Twitter followers, I apologize… I just had to live tweet my thoughts on the event. It happens… and my friend Ellie, she wrote her commentary out in a blog post… CRACKED. ME. UP. {Go read it now… then come back…}

Now, a few of my thoughts… Where was Kip Moore?? I need Carrie Underwood’s leg workout. NEED. Jason Aldean will always, always, always be my favorite. Country musicians are just sexy. Period. All of them… Luke, Jake, Jason, Erin, Jana, Carrie… seriously, share that with us, please. The Willie Nelson tribute was fantastic. Tim and Kenny are getting old. Was Faith wearing braces? The Zac Brown Band is amazing.  And sorry, Taylor… I still am not a huge fan.

And… I need to go to the CMA’s next year.

On another note –

I’m rocking some leopard leggings today {I got them a couple of months ago but hadn’t decided on them yet…}


What do you think? Yay? Nay? I love leopard. as much as I love country music – and that’s a lot. 

What are you up to this weekend?

Happy Friday, little Cheetahs!


Happy Hour. {Aldean. Veggies. Fall.}

Whew – I feel like this weekend FLEW by! Anyone else?!

So… it’s Ellie and I’s second edition of Happy Hour – y’all ready to link up?? We are still working out some of the kinks with it {html and all that jazz – essentially the weekend disappeared and I failed to figure it out. #oops}

{{  <a href=”http://www.jacmaries.wordpress.com”><img src=”https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-G4eW4t3_Nu4/UBYDw-DGCVI/AAAAAAAAByc/F8ZnCdHv2mg/s200/happyhour3.2.jpg?gl=US”/></a> }}

Grab that code – place it in your post and BOOM – there’s a fancy button. {Obviously not that fancy cause I haven’t made it the correct way yet. Ugh.}

1. Jason Aldean. No, I hadn’t intended on making it a trend that I have a sexy, country singer on my list every week… but – chances are, there will be. I’ve been listening to Jason for YEARS… but last night Amy and I went and saw him and Luke Bryan in concert! It was beyond good – shutting out the world and belting out every J.Aldean song makes me a very happy girl.

2. This weather. I wore a cardigan today… with a dress. And it felt amazing out this morning. It’s the little things, like stepping outside and not being choked by the humidity.

3. Veggie Chips or Veggie Tortilla Chips. I could eat the whole bag in one sitting – which totally negates the whole “being healthy” thing. So I probably shouldn’t – BUT I could.

4. Fall Fashion. I need it in my life right now. I’m ready to just purge everything I in my closet and start fresh? All of the Fall Fashion magazines have hit the stores – this is going to make me crazy. Do you love fall fashion too??

5. The gym. What is it about rocking out an hour of cardio that just makes everything seem better? It’s become such a stress reliever. I’ve always enjoyed working out – but getting back in the habit has definitely been good for my body and soul.

I lack focus today. I think my late night is beginning to get to me. I’m. So. Tired. I need the world’s biggest cup of coffee – or something.

Hope y’all are having a fantastic Monday and I hope you link up with Ellie and I. If not today, next week. Or tomorrow. The link party will be live for a bit.

I’ll be your honey bee…

Disclaimer: This may be my most random blog post yet. 😉

Didn’t get the Blake Shelton song reference? No? Hmmm… oh well… #youshouldlistentocountrymusicmoreoften #justsayin

So back to the honey bees… well, a few weeks ago when I went home for the weekend – I no sooner got home and dropped my stuff in the living room and my dad was taking me outside to show me this MASSIVE collection of honey bees on one of our trees. He had watched them come across the field in a swarm and land in this tree. It was insane! I could actually get pretty close to them and they weren’t bothered at all {this was a huge feat for me because when I was 28 years old younger whenever a bee would get within 5 ft of me I’d scream to high heavens – seriously, you’d have thought someone was trying to kill me}.

How crazy is that? They were gone the next morning. I think it’d have been pretty cool to see them buzzzz away.

Anyways, I can’t believe it’s almost Friday… and even more unbelievable – where the heck did June go?! *sigh* summer is flying by… I need some more pool time. Stat!

Hope y’all are having a great week. Happy Thursday, kittens!
