HAPPY FRI-YAY!!!! It's still Summer but we are already back in the stands for Friday Night Lights. Last Friday was super exciting because our High School Football field was dedicated and is the only one in our county with turf. It's so beautiful it doesn't even look real. The company said it is the most beautiful one they have ever done. The boys took the field for the first time and came away with the "W"! Hope you have sweet plans this weekend, ours include more football and a day trip to our beloved Lake Michigan area to see what shenanigans we can get into. 

1. This GUY
With his brothers gone off to college, it's all on this guy and while I know he misses them, he is pretty excited to be spoiled and an only. So proud of him. He is a sophomore and will see Varsity and JV time so expect a lot of football in our future!! 
Scrimmage night with his girl and another NINE boy get the #9!

This field was hand stitched, which is amazing and we were in awe of the process as we drove by week after week. It's so cool, it doesn't even look real.

4. Our First Outing as 3
Last Saturday the three of us really needed to go have some fun as missing the other two. We headed over to the Evil Czech Brewery and the Lounger Movie Theater to see "War Dogs" and had a ball.

Most amazing concoction ever!! The owners Mother's own recipe. Used to get this on a plate in slice form but in a can is sooo much better. Not like a cake at all but more like a soft mouss-y cheesecake~delicious!!
The Carne Asada Chicken Tacos----joy!!

5. Pumpkin Everything
We have 2 Targets, a little one and a big one, the big one is further away but boy does it heed my call and I always get the best stuff there. Imagine my delight when I realized they had starting selling pumpkin goodness already. I remind you I do not like Pumpkin pie but am a little bit pumpkin obsessed with everything else so Please don't hate me cause I'm a pumpkin fan but I had to scoop all these up. Pumpkin Lovers wants reviews in numbers?
K. Here they are on a 5 pt scale
Pumpkin Spice Cheerios 3/5 (Disappointed)
Pumpkin Spice Special K 4/5
Chobani Pumpkin Yogurt 3/5
Noosa Pumpkin Yogurt 5/5 (Scrumptious)
Pumpkin Spice Coffee and Cafe Escapes 4/5
Happy Last Weekend of August Dolls!!

  3. Good morning my fabulous Indiana Sister Friend! Can I just say I want to come up and watch football at that high school field! WOW! I haven't been to a high school game in three years (when my little brother played.) I love those Friday nights. YAY for a family of three outing and the fact the baby gets all that attention from mama and daddy! I think we need to go eat at that place when I'm up (hehe that would rock!) Thank you for those pumpkin spice reviews - girl I'm no quite ready for it. I'll have to wait until after Labor Day, if that's alright! Happiest weekend sweetie! Love ya! xoxoxox

  4. Football!! Eek!! Can't wait! Alise cheers at her first game next Thursday! And Bama plays Saturday! Can life get any sweeter?! Y'alls field is GORGEOUS! Some of our public schools here have turf; our private school does not. :) Okay and I always thought that olive was not for me, but you have so convinced me to at least try it!! I was totally all smiles when I saw your maxi skirt this week. Can you believe I finally wore one this week for the first time this summer?! You Nines have an AWESOME weekend! Go Redhawks!!

  5. Awww look at your handsome football player! I am sure he wont mind being spoiled the next few years on his own :) That is a gorgeous stadium! I am so glad football season is back up and going! Yay! One more weekend til college ball too! I love Olive, it is pretty much flattering on everyone! That off the shoulder piece is to die for. Hope you have a great weekend!

  6. I'm sure he misses his brothers but he's probably LOVING all the attention;) And AMEN to the olive obsession--I just can't get enough! Love how you styled your olive pieces! Have a fabulous weekend lovely!

  7. Ahhhh I love football. So fun that your son plays and of course you are a supportive mom. It feels like the official start of fall to me. Bring it on! Pumpkin and all. Loving olive so much lately, and you shared some great inspiration.

  15. We are pretty excited for the Friday night lights tonight, too! There's nothing better. I love that your boys wear the #9. How fun!
    I am really excited about olive being a fall color, too. It looks great on everyone. Your mom is too cute, too! It's obvious where you get your beauty from.
    I'm really intrigued by that dessert in a can...
    Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

  16. Ahh that field looks great! Makes me really miss hs football! Your little one is such a cutie - I am sure he is loving the one on one time!

Enjoy your weekend !

  19. Happy Friday! Wow, what a field! I'm sure those games are so much fun. I kind of wish we were into football a little more. It will be interesting to see if either of the boys get in to it as they get older. Loving all of your olive colored options. It's one of my favorite colors for the fall along with navy. Your dinner out looks amazing too! Have a great weekend. Beautifully Candid

  20. Football season is the best season!! I love football!

  21. Yay for another #9! I love olive, such a great color. Was War Dogs good? I want to see it. I like that Kenny Chesney song.

  22. Pumpkin spice Cheerios and Special K?! That's it, I will never eat anything else for breakfast ever again! Ha! I love that he got number 9! I bet opposing team fans are so confused. Like, "Why does it say Nine instead of his last name?" Ha!

  23. Amen for football and pumpkin everything! I posted about fall today, too! I'm DYING to decorate the house, but I'm trying to hold off until 9/1... only a few more days! Happy weekend, Andrea!

  24. Love all your darling outfits and really love your taste in pumpkin everything. Have a wonderful weekend.

  25. I am super excited for football season and boy, that field really is a sight to see, it's so pretty! Your son is so cute, I bet he is happy to be an only (at least for a little while) until he reunites with his brothers! I am also on the Pumpkin Spice bandwagon and can't stop ... but I don't really want to either :D I hope you have the happiest of weekends my gorgeous friend! XO -Kim

  26. How beautiful is that field and how cute is your footballer??!! I so wish I lived in a Friday Night Lights town!! I am in agreement with you on the pumpkin everything and olive as the it color! Woo hoo!! You and your mom are both fabulous!! Have a great weekend!!

  27. Yes, please to all the pumpkin products! Your new football field sounds incredible, and I'm glad to hear the family is starting to adjust a little to life without the older 2 at home. Have a wonderful weekend!

  28. Yes yes and yes to your pumpkin finds! I have been eating the pumpkin Noosa for a month now and it is sooooo good!

  29. I love your pumpkin spice ratings! You should do a whole post of these! And isn't it crazy that football season has begun already!?

  30. I think I may need to add some more olive to my wardrobe. I have a few pieces but not a top. I love it with the white! Is that really cake? I thought it was a drink!

  31. Cake in a can sounds awesome, and I'm ready for pumpkin everything :)

  32. Hey Andrea, Love the olive colors and it really pops with the white jeans! Know you are proud of your son!

  33. Your youngest is sure gonna love all the attention being an "only child" now in the house. That's so great they gave him #9...only fair right considering your last name? I've been loving Olive clothing recently and just bought some work pants :-)

  34. Great boy! I love that Olive color!

  35. Hope you are having a fabulous weekend, Andrea! Enjoy all the football fun! And how nice that the youngest one gets all the attention! :-)

    I love all the olive I've been seeing and have been wanting to pair it with white! You beat me to it and are looking gorgeous!

  37. Oh my word, there's a lot of goodness in this post. All of the food is tempting but I'm needing to lose a few pounds so my olive clothes will fit just right. :)

  38. Such fun to see your pumpkin flavored foods reviewed. I will be on the lookout for the pumpkin Special K. Great way to start my day. Your mama is cute as a bug's ear. Obviously she has your same adorable figure and sense of style!

  39. Love that you get some one on one time with your youngest . . . he must love it! And the football field - amazing! How lucky to are you guys to have that!?! I love the color olive . . . such a great fall color! And yes to pumpkin things . . . but I'm more of a pumpkin pie and less of a pumpkin pie flavor girl although I do love a pumpkin latte in the fall! Hope you had a great weekend!

  40. Love the olive - another great color on you! I've been spoiling my older son too, since he's the only one at home :)! Hope you had a great weekend!
