So I was Thinking

Hi, friends! Sorry for the radio silence yesterday. I was in an all day meeting and have a half day meeting today so my blogging and comment reprocess will be kind of sporadic. Normally meetings drive me batty, but this meeting has been extremely productive and I'm actually looking forward to finishing everything today. Okay, I sound a bit nuts, so on to my rambling Thursday thoughts. 

+ Le Husband and I flew home late Monday so we could soak up alllll the family time over the weekend. Well, wouldn't you know our flight was smack dab in the middle of the Ohio State vs Virginia Tech game? But don't you worry, we rocked our Buckeye gear on the plane and Le Husband streamed the game with Southwest's wifi #thankyoutechnology. After a few turn overs [like always] the Bucks trounced the Hokies and avenged last season's loss. I'm super excited for the college season and to cheer on OSU to another championship! #scarletandgrey #letsgobucks #ohiostate

+ Since we were flying on our actual anniversary, Le Husband and I made reservations at Ruth Chris for Tuesday night. Usually we use special occasions to try new restaurants but we had a gift card from parents [fromourfirstannivessaryoops] and thought our second anniversary was a great time take advantage of their generosity. We enjoyed a delicious bottle of wine, the porterhouse for two [ohmyfoodgasm], lobster mac and cheese and of course a fabulous dessert. Our dinner, coupled with the gorgeous flowers Le Husband brought home, capped of a wonderful second anniversary and I am so looking forward to our third year of marriage. #bringonyearthree #marriageisawesome #stucklikeglue


+ Downton Abbey is coming to an end and the final season starts in London next weekend. I have watched the trailer more than I care to admit and I am so darn jealous of you Britain peeps. So cruel we have to wait even longer for the episodes. I'm going to be so sad when we finally say goodbye to the Abbey, I've so enjoyed the poise, grace and humor of the Crawley family and staff. #downtonforever #pleaseletmaryenduphappy #teamannaandbates


+ While we're talking television, have any of you checked out the E! series WAGS!?! I am INCREDIBLY ashamed to admit how intrigued I am by this show. The first episode piqued my interest one day and now it's like an accident on the side of the road, I just can't look away. The wives aren't too bad, but the wanna be girlfriends are RIDICULOUS, like EWWW for real?!?!? Please tell me I'm not the only person fascinated by this complete train wreck…pretty please.

Alright, I'm out ladies. I hope to make it back to blog land later today. If not, don't judge me as I take advantage of my three day work week [yes, three days. yes, another trip. yes, we're crazy]. Love and sparkles, friends!

Funny story about WAGS...the girl Barbie is actually from Jacksonville so I was always seeing her at clubs (when we were finally 18) and she's always been just as gorgeous as she is now and always hung around athletes haha! So yes I watch too LOL! so glad you guys had a wonderful anniversary dinner! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

So glad that you guys had a good anniversary! Cheers to year three! And loving that you wore your Buckeye gear on the plane:) I stopped watching Downtown before Matthew died, and when I heard that that happened, it made me too sad to want to continue watching. But I may just try to catch up before the last season starts here, because I really need to know if Mary ends up happy!

What an amazing anniversary dinner... YUM!! Now I'm craving steak and mac n cheese at 6am, HA!
Shows like that always suck me in, ha ha! But they just make me appreciate the life and love I enjoy on the daily that much more!

Katie Elizabeth said...

Yay for a great anniversary!! I could go for a bowl of lobster mac and cheese right now, please and thank you :) Can't believe Downton is coming to an end - I stopped watching after Matthew died because it was so sad! But I think I need to catch back up to see how it all ends!

Jen said...

Sounds like a great anniversary to me!

I am SO sad Downton is coming to an end. KC gets me the episodes as the UK get them, not sure how but I don't ask questions I just get excited I don't have to wait!

I am way too excited yet sad at the same time about the final season of Downton. And I still have never been to Ruths Chris... that needs to change - it looks ahhhmazing!

We matched Monday, although my shirt is now a tad big with no preggo belly to hide! Love you.

Nadine Lynn said...

Happy Anniversary! I love Ruth's Chris!! Chris took me there after he proposed to me, his parents got us a gift card to eat at the one at our hotel the night we got married, and we spent our first anniversary there as well.

Emily said...

Thats awesome you were able to catch the live game on the place. I love the fact that you can get TV and internet on some planes today.

Kristin said...

Ugh..I'll be sad when Downton ends.

alyssa said...

Aw happy anniversary!
I've never watched Downton Abbey but people tell me I might like it... maybe when it's all over and I can binge watch it all in a weekend on Netflix I'll get hooked ;)

Caitlin Elizabeth said...

That dinner sounds amazing, happy anniversary! You guys are so cute in your Buckeye gear on the plane haha

Olivia and Nicole though......oh my.

Ashley said...

Some of my friends watch Downton Abbey.. I've heard great things about it.. I need to get Netflix!

Courtney@PancakesandSparkles said...

Downton starts a week Sunday and I cannot wait to watch it, so sad it is the final series. But so happy I don't have to wait longer to watch it, now you know what it is like when I have to wait ages for all the American shows to air over here;)

Brianne said...

I'm glad ya had a good anniversary! That dessert looks so good! I *still* haven't ever had lobster mac. I was supposed to go on a 2nd date with a guy on Labor Day but I cancelled it so no lobster mac for me! Boo. Maybe I can talk the guy I'm actually going on a 2nd date with to get some with me.... hmm now my mind is churning ha. Have a great weekend.
