Weddings, Halloween, LuLaRoe, and Everything in Between

Matt got a fryer for his birthday from my parents, and it’s been used several times just in the past week. Sunday morning, we didn’t have power for a while, so Matt used it to heat up water to make coffee & then made french toast! Yum! Last week, he surprised me one night and made fried Oreos..double yum!! I didn’t get them at the fair like I usually do, because I just couldn’t bring myself to spend $5-$6 on 5 Oreos, haha.

My cousin, Brooke, got married this weekend and despite the rain, everything turned out great!!! We made the most of it and had a great time! We certainly have some fun memories to look back on :)

I am loving this fall weather! It finally feels like it’s October and Halloween is on the way! Speaking of Halloween, we’re going to have more outside decorations this year. So far, it’s looking awesome! Matt does such a good job making the outside of our house and yard look so festive for whichever holiday is coming up! And see, Matt’s been getting Marshall in the Halloween spirit, too ;)

I just took a HUGE step into my next endeavor--I’m officially a LuLaRoe consultant! I am so excited about this opportunity, and can’t wait to share some awesome clothes with everyone :) Be sure to join my LuLaRoe Facebook group so you won't miss out on the fun!

Fall TV is back!! I've already been watching Dancing with the Stars, but I'm SO excited for The Middle and Fresh off the Boat tonight. Love both of those shows! Gives me something to watch and pass the time while working on a Halloween project for Matt--I'll show the finished product once everything's finished!

Longwood's Making Headlines!

The Longwood love I see all over Facebook today makes me so happy!

Everyone is SO excited about everything going on at Longwood and in Farmville today/this week, and it’s so fun seeing the pictures everyone is sharing.

Finding out that Longwood would be hosting the VP Debate today was awesome news!! Not many people know about Longwood, and how great of a school it is. You always hear the jokes about Longwood being in Farmville, VA. Yes, FARMVILLE. Don’t even try to make a joke about the Facebook game when you’re talking to a student, alum, faculty member or even Farmville resident, because trust me, we’ve heard them all! Ha! You can check out this article here or this article there to hear how Longwood was chosen to host this historical event. I’m so glad to that more people will know about Longwood now after this debate!

The Longwood University Facebook page has been sharing pictures of all of the set-up that’s leading up to tonight’s event. Campus looks INCREDIBLE. The same gym we'd watch LU basketball games in has been transformed into an amazing debate space. I would love to see it all in person! Back in August, Matt and I stopped by Longwood for a quick walk around campus, and we couldn’t believe the construction that was already in the works. It must be such a cool experience for those that are there to see everything and participate in all of the fun events they have planned.  And come on, who DOESN’T want a Longwood Debate Scarf?! The Longwood scarves will always be fun and special to Matt & me, as we used one in our engagement pictures, another in our wedding pictures, and even in pictures on our honeymoon! I hope they’re still making these scarves when Marshall is a Lancer ;)

I'm sure I've said this many times before, and I'll say it plenty more times in the future: I'm proud to be a Longwood alum!

Students Today. Alumni Tomorrow. Lancers Forever.

Taco Ring Recipe

We eat some form of tacos probably once a week. Last night, we tried a fun variation on tacos, with the Taco Ring!  It was really easy and quick to make, which was nice since we got a late start on dinner yesterday.

  • 1 pack of crescent rolls
  • ground beef
  • cheese
  • any taco toppings you like


First, preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Start cooking your ground beef with taco seasoning, and whatever else you might like such as green peppers, onions, etc. While that's cooking, starting arranging your crescent triangles in a circular shape, with the corners overlapping.  Make sure you spray your cookie sheet with cooking spray!

When the beef was just about done, Matt stirred some shredded cheese into it.  Then, you put it on top of the crescent rolls and fold the triangles in.

 The directions said to cook it for 18-22 minutes, but it only took about 14 minutes for us.

We cut it into smaller sections with a pizza cutter, and had sour cream for dipping! We also had shredded lettuce and small pieces of tomatoes! So good!

If you have any quick or easy recipes you like, please comment and share!
