5 on Friday....

1. Our house closing got pushed back to Friday. I am strangely OK with it - it doesn't change much, actually works out better for Justin's work schedule.

2. My best friend left for St. Maarten last Sunday. I miss her. She will be spending the next 21 months there for Med School. A little over 3 months till we visit her!

3. College Football has started...For those of you who know me, know how big of a deal this is! I have waited since January for college football to be back! WVU has a couple of easy games the first few games, but then...well... I am hoping for a miracle :)  .
And I am hoping this easy on the eyes guy does great at our QB

4. FALL is here. Need I show you more reason I am excited??

5. A few years back Kelly's Korner was doing a Your Team/Tailgate link up this time of year (4?? years ago)... I met this girl through that link up...Rebecca helped introduce Justin and I three years ago September 1st... So had it not been for football and blogs I would have never met my husband nor would have I made a great friend! So this time of year is extra special to me... Let's GOOOOOOO!!!

5 on Friday

1. I for one, love, Shark Week. I haven't been as years in the past about watching but one of our classrooms at school devoted this weeks to sharks (FYI I wanted to be either a teacher or marine biologist growing up) so I have been learning all kinds of new facts. One of the neatest things we have been looking at is the Live Shark is really neat and I promise it won't disappoint... well at least science geeks like me will love it.

2. It is moving weekend. My house is in chaos, I am tired but the Uhaul comes tomorrow and movers will be there at 11. No rest this weekend :) I am totally ok with it though!! We have a little over a week in our current house, Shacking with friends for the rest of August and then our very first house. 

3. Speaking of house, our yard now has sod. Our house is the only house on the street with grass. Our neighbors are calling our house The Augusta - ha, I will take it. So will my OCD yard lovin' hubby.

If this is sideways, sorry - sometimes it shows up OK sometimes not

4. I am a TV  DVR junkie - I am excited for the new season of some of my favorite shows to come back on. Some of the ones I am most excited for - Modern Family, How I Met Your Mother, Mike and Molly, Big Bang Theory, Biggest Loser - Some of the ones I most excited to see Dads,  Friends with Better Lives, The Goldburgs, Michael J Fox Show, Mixoloogy, The Millers, Mom, Sean Saves the World, Super Fun Day, Trophy Wives, Undateable, Welcome to the Family and We are Men... just to name a few...
Now, I know that list looks long and it is...but half or 3/4 of these shows won't make it in our household past the first few minutes. TV shows have to be espically good, funny and quick humored to make it  - especially during Football season. I don't have a ton of extra TV time so I want to devote the time to something good. What are you excited for?

5. Football. It has started (preseason) and I am so excited. I am ready for some Mountaineer, Bengal, Rams football. Are you?

Our first...

Today is our first anniversary....

I can still remembering counting down the minutes... I was so excited to marry Justin I couldn't wait. Seeing his handsome face at the end of the aisle was absolutely perfect. It was the moment that every little girl dreams of.

This year has been the best year of my life. Hands down. Justin is so good to me and makes me be a better person that being married to him is the easiest job in the world. Now, don't get me wrong, he may want to tape my mouth with duct tape sometimes because of the whining crabbiness that comes from me but he never does.

I never thought an only child could be so selfless and giving, but he is. He is the best care giver, provider and friend I could have ever asked for. I always thought I was good at taking care of people until I met him.

He keeps me grounded, allows me to dream, holds my hand and even cleans out the bathtub when I have a horrible stomach virus.

He  can make me laugh like no other. And his grin, it gets me every time.

I am so blessed to be his wife, honored to have him as my best friend and humbled at how much he truly loves me.

A year full of new jobs, family issues, building a house, learning to give and compromise, learning to be married, sharing the good and bad and waking up next to him every day are just a few of the many reasons this year has been the best. I know I am the lucky one, I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you.

Thank you babe, thank you for loving me the way you do....Happy first Anniversary, The first of many....

Five on Friday....

I am back for another fabulous 5 on Friday. Is it bad that I thought yesterday was Friday all day and was extremely disappointed at bedtime to find it was only Thursday. None the less I am excited for our Anniversary weekend and excited it is finally the weekend - well in 6.5 hours :)
1. It is our anniversary weekend :) I am excited for some quiet and relaxing time with the hubs. I would show you his gift but he reads the blog and I have kept it a secret this long! I did keep with the tradition and did something along the paper lines...

 2. With the upcoming move hanging over our heads and the house almost being done I have been doing a lot of pinning.  Dreaming of linen closets... Here are a few of my favs, share if you have any pinned you like...

Linen Closet Organization... Would be great if we actually had a linen cabinet            Line. Closet          Guest room closet- like the idea of a laundry basket in there for guests to put their dirty linens in and towel bars on the inside of the door
3. Our master bedroom is yellow and grey... Pinning has came in handy there too - (again please share your fav master bedroom pins)

Remodelaholic | Free Yellow and Grey Printables  Doing this for our bedroom with pictures hanging instead of the mirror. Such a cute idea! Yellow and Grey Bedroom: white frames with black and white portraits above bed

4. I really want to do a gallery wall as well - do you have one in your house? Ideas, thoughts, suggestions? Here are a few of my favorites...

frames on the wall...

Love the mix of quotes, the frame with a word in it, and photos in this gallery wall.

5. I didn't mean for this to turn into a Pinterest post, but it kinda did :) Oh well - I guess for #5 I will leave you with a few of my favorite new house ideas, totally random. If you are on Pinterest make sure to come find me, Cassiewvu,  I would love to see what you are into and making!
