Wendy and Chris

Today is my big sister's birthday! 
Nashville 2010 

I am SO lucky to be able to see her on her birthday!

Chris, Wendy and Zoe are driving back from Tennessee, and stopping in Lexington for dinner. 

 (last year in TN)

And HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHRIS! Chris has a BIG birthday coming up on Sunday!!!

Chris and Wendy have been dating since I was a littttttle baby. I really don't even remember there being a time that Chris WASN'T there for things. I think I was 2 when they started dating...? Anyways, Chris is the BEST brother-in-law anyone could ask for and is a GREAT dad to my precious niece Zoe, and a GREAT hubby to my big sissy. I love their family so much and treasure the times I get to see them!

Zoe and Karma - Tennessee trip 2010

Wendy and Chris both LOVE Malones, so we are going there for a little birthday dinner. 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY WENDY AND CHRIS! I love you both so much and I'm so glad I am going to be able to spend the day and go to dinner with you guys on your birthday!

Fall Break!

We finally have 2 days off for a much needed Fall Break!

I have been busy laying in bed and hanging out with Mr. Perry

Yep, blue bow in Perry's hair :) It just looks to cute haha

Watching the Today Show and catching up on DVR and watching the Kardashian wedding with Perry always by my side!
Today, I am planning on having a complete LAZY day and getting some things done around the house.

We finally got outside for a walk after the downfall. Perry LOVES all the sticks on the ground!

Tomorrow, I may venture out and run some errands and do some shopping!! 

Maybe even take the pup to the park if it's nice outside!

I'm off to watch part 2 of the wedding... It's quite ridiculous so far.

It's opening weekend at Keeneland this week!!!

Unfortunately, I have to work on Friday, so I will not be attending on opening day. BUT! I will certainly be there on Saturday! I can't wait to throw on some boots, tights, dress and a scarf and head out to the races!

And the weather is supposed to be 78 and sunny! PERFECT fall Keeneland weather!

I'm loving this Lilly dress for only $98! Pair it with some boots and your ready for Keeneland!

Keeneland gets me in the mood to transition over to fall more than anything. I think I need to do some shopping for some new Keeneland outfits!

How about this Bourbon Pumpkin Pie milkshake for a little tailgating pre-race...

Sounds Ah-mazing!!

Things I love about Fall...

I cannot believe it is already OCTOBER!!!

How did time fly by so fast?! I have been CRAZY busy at school and staying late getting things ready. I turned my computer on for the first time in a week on Sunday. If you all know me at all, you know that I LIVE on my laptop!!! While I watch tv, I'm can almost always be found with my MBP on my lap doing some online shopping, stalking blogs, or wasting time on facebook. So for me to not be on the computer for a week straight is saying a lot!


How is it already October? And how is it already in the 40's?!?! I about froze my tush off this weekend! 

On Friday, we went down to Glasgow for the Homecoming game! It was a short trip, but I loved getting down there to see Ben's family for a little visit!

Perry loved the car ride, of course!

On Saturday, we did the DSACK Buddy Walk! It was soooooo chilly, but I loved every minute of it. They had miniature horses walking with us!

Some of things I've done the past week include....

Baking pumpkin chocolate chip muffins!

I love all things pumpkin. And this muffins did not disappoint! Seriously, so easy, and so good!

Just cake mix, a can of pumpkin and 1/2 cup of water! I found the recipe here:

And another favorite recipe for tailgates and parties...

Buffalo Chicken Dip! Mmmm

And my favorite fall candle. 

Candleberry Hot Maple Toddy! Seriously, you can have this thing going for 30 minutes and it will make you house smell wonderful for the rest of the day. Loves it. 

And my new favorite drink from Starbucks...

Grande Soy Misto with 1 pump Pumpkin Spice. SO GOOD!

What are your favorite things about fall??
