Happy College Football Kick-off Day + Blog Gems 8/26 - 9/1

Happy College Football Kick-off Day!

(Let's be honest, we all know I care way more about the good football snacks and playful rivalry than the actual football games.)

I never thought I'd see the day that I would allow my son to wear a mesh football jersey - and a VT one at that.  But, he does look pretty darn cute, right?  (P.S. Please take note of his cup!)

And now, a few good reads from around the inter-webs this week... Enjoy!

 "I Am a Crappy Mom" by BethAtStructure, reposted on  (Pretty much my battle cry!)

"Reflecting" a great come-back post from my friend Libby, and a good reminder for us all.

My blog-turned-real-life friend Ashley shared a great series titled: "Making It Work on One Income" this week.  (Even though we are both working right now, this offered some great tips, and I love Ashley's honesty and vulnerability.)

"How to Talk With Your Sons About Robin Thicke" by Eric Clapp.  (Sam's a bit young for the birds and the bees talk, but I'm holding on to this for the inevitable future. #shootmenow)

"10 Ways to be a Happier Mom" from Ann Voskamp (a true happiness & holiness expert in my book) posted on Incourage.  

And... for a really good laugh. ;)

Chapman Family Staycation 2013 begins in T-minus six hours.   Have a wonderful holiday weekend!


  1. I'm all dressed up in my college gear! I hope you guys enjoy the games && the stay-cation! can't wait to hear about it!

  2. From this weekend I believe a Clemson jersey would have been more appropriate. Congrats on the big Clemson win!!!

  3. Thanks for the shoutout friend! :)


Your comments are what makes this thing fun! I LOVE to hear from you and do my best to respond to everyone! THANK YOU!
