Are you Ready?

College Football is less than a week away.

I am ALMOST ready.

I'm super excited about the football party we're hosting, going to Oxford for games (cute clothes!!), and watching the Rebels have the most amazing season ever.

But other than that I am NOT ready for football season. 

Here is why:

I'm WAY too competitive and get way to involved in Ole Miss football. 
It can be a stressful time. Ask my mother-in-law. You can find her pacing inside Vaught-Hemingway Stadium during most games. 


My sweet husband, Cameron watches every random college team on TV as long as they're playing football.

Goodbye Cameron. See you after football season. I'll be watching Bravo and the ID channel if you need me.  I love you and I know you love me.

Although, I am not sure where his beloved Rebels fit into our love scale. 


I have a hodgepodge of Rebel stuff that I am trying to make work for a little football party we are hosting. 

I still need to pick up a few more things before the party.

But I did pick up these cute little Mississippi cups from Fresh Ink in Jackson. Can't wait to use them!

Hotty Toddy Rebel fans!

Hoping for an awesome season. Fingers crossed!

Thanks for reading and good luck to your team of choice! 

Unless they're playing Ole Miss.

To blog or not to blog?

I have taken time off from Susannah Styles for several reasons.

I felt like I was putting pressure on myself to figure out a way to make my blog more successful.
Obsessing over other blogs and what makes them popular.
Susannah Styles was starting to feel stale to me.

SO I took a break and now I'm deciding if I want to start blogging again in my own way or just stop.

Until I decide, I will leave you with some pics of my summer.

It was awesome.

Except for my wisdom teeth removal. 
That wasn't awesome.
But the pics are hilarious. 

Channeled Jackie-O post-op...

In June, we took a trip to New Orleans and a blurry selfie...

Headed to Austin for a very Texan 4th of July...

Got decked out in our best patriotic, hippie apparel to see the String Cheese Incident at the Backyard...

Three nights in a row...

Not to mention that we rode this crazy school bus to and from the Backyard each night...

We did a little beer tasting in Jackson during July...

And then headed to Amelia Island in August for our last trip of the summer...

We ate, drank, and beached for an amazing, make-up free week...

Gus' love for the beach and ocean grew more and more each day of the trip. Who would have thought that this finicky, mama's boy would love hour long beach walks and SWIMMING in the ocean.

Like seriously swimming. He begs for me to take him out a good ways into the water and then put him down. He swims a little bit and then catches a wave back to the beach.

Yeah I wouldn't believe it either...but he does it every time we take him out there. 

Our little Rosebud ventured out into the water more than ever on this trip. 
Beach dog success!

After that we headed down to Jacksonville for dinner and a Jags game with my awesome parents...

And what trip to North Florida and South Georgia is complete without a stop at Honey Boo Boo's house?

 I was so freaking excited!!!!

So, there you have summer.

We came, we saw, we conquered.

Now, I just need to decide what I'm doing with this here blog thang.
 (That's how Honey Boo Boo would say it)

Thanks for reading!
