The Day to Day...

Life can feel mundane, no? I think I've been lacking in the blogging department because I've felt like things have been pretty status quo and I haven't felt inspired to drone on about seemingly boring things. But I began this blog, and chose it's title based on that very point. That it's the little things in life that really do make it both glamorous and fabulous.

Most of us don't go on dates that rival the Bachelor/Bachelorette. Most of us are lucky to get taken out to Chili's and you're really on a date when you get a movie afterwards! I spend my weekend watering plants, going to the grocery store and cleaning bathrooms. Just call me Fancy.

But the truth is, it all adds up to a great life...so here's a little bit of what I've been doing lately...



Picking out fun fabric for several chairs I'm having recovered!

Now I'm dying to get everything back and have my house in order.


Mumford and Sons Rail Road Revival Tour concert with my boo. IT.WAS.AWESOME.


Planting a slew of flowers out front last weekend in crazy heat and humidity. But it looks pretty sharp if I may say so myself!



Getting HYPED over the Mavs in the playoffs! I've been going to Mavs games since I was a wee one and they were terrible! So this is very fun. Tried and true Mavericks and Rangers fan and my teams are finally winning! What in the world!?? PS...Dirk is my homeboy.



A trip to the coast a few weekends ago with Bradley, Lynch, the babies and the husbands. It was full of food, fun, and the ROYAL WEDDING! We literally watched every.single.channel's.coverage. And it was awesome.



I've been listening to this guy's games on the radio and I'm counting down the days until we get to go visit him in Savannah! Miss you, brother.
*These photos were taken by another player's mother. It was Breast Cancer Awareness night and the players wore pink jerseys. It was PERFECT that this was a night Taylor started. They auctioned the jerseys off to fans but Taylor had asked if he could make sure and get/buy his own jersey as a gift for my mom who is a survivor! What a perfect gift!!



Last and definitely least...I've really slacked off on my running since the 10K. I was so proud of myself for setting that goal and reaching that milestone. Then I was just tired. And I've reverted back to my sporadic exercise the last 6 weeks. But I'm back. I did a few miles last night, I'm exhausted today, and I'm vowing to get back in the groove. OH, and my sister may or may not be throwing around words like Half Marathon....Heaven help me!

"Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life - well, valuable, but small - and sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven't been brave? So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book, when shouldn't it be the other way around? I don't really want an answer. I just want to send this cosmic question out into the void. So good night, dear void." ~ Kathleen Kelly, You've Got Mail

I'm with you, sometimes it means taking a moment to recognize all the wonderful things in our life to see how truly fabulous it is!

Sara said...

Sounds like you guys are definitely keeping busy! Fun stuff going on over in the Glam/Fab household. Your flowers are beautiful. And of course, you look great too! :)

Suburban Princess said...

Sounds like lots of fun!
The problem with Bach- dates is anything normal is a letdown! What do they do when they go home and the best date they have is to the movies?

Natalie said...

Love that fabric...your flowers look fabulous...and what about those Mavs scoring like 15 points in like 4 minutes to win the game the other night? Now that was crazy!

That's Sassy said...

LOVE the you've got mail quote...so relatable!

Perpetual Blind Date said...

1) you life is not so-so at all! Uh hello MUMFORD! I.Die.
2) tell that cutie you call a brother to make his way to a single girls blog ;)
3) I also grew up on the Mavs and Rangers... however, I am currently living in Ok. Mavs, Thunder, Mavs, Thunder...

Kara said...

Can't wait to see the finished chairs. Love the fabrics!

Concert, trip, recovering furniture...sounds pretty fab to me!

Love Savannah. So exciting you are going soon.

All Things Yummy said...

You've Got Mail- one of my favorite movies. Love that quote.

Natalie said...

I have had the same feeling lately. Seemingly busy, busy, busy but nothing to blog about.

And I'm sure you get this all the time (coming from one with an older brother that knows all too well), but your brother is a cutie! :)

Lindsay said...

I love that fabric! Can't wait to see how the chairs turn out!

melissa said...

The fabrics are beautiful and your garden looks great! You've been a busy girl! And can I say again, you look fantastic!

Virginia Belle said...

I love this post! It really is the simple things in life that make it great. How was the Mumford and Sons concert? I love them so I'm sure it was a blast! Cute picture of you and your husband at the beach, it sounds like a great weekend.

Kate said...

A.) you look fantastic!
B.) mumford and sons... Wow! So jealous!
C.) can't wait to see your chairs! I have always wanted to that but haven't ever pulled the trigger.
D.) may or may not have teared up at the pink jersey story.
The end.

I'm with you on the Mavs, although I'm watching the game right now and getting really upset with both the refs and with Jet Terry.

We'll get them on Saturday, though. :)

Let's go Mavs!
