Five On Friday!

Happy Friday y'all!

1} This morning I woke up to this amazing sneak peek of our fall pictures!! I swear Valerie Shelton is so incredible! I love it so much!
p.s. the way my weird bang (or whatever that piece of hair is) is falling away from the rest of my hair bugs the living crap out of me!

2} I have been obsessed with these sisters for months! I saw their videos on YouTube before Nashville came on and when I found out they were going to be on the show I was so excited. Every single episode I sit there hoping they will do a song, they are such talented young ladies. This song was on last weeks episode and I fell in love with it! It has been on repeat for a week straight now.

3} This weekend me, Paul, Cody & Lauren are going to the Moonshine Festival! This is one of my favorite events every Fall and I cannot wait. This festival takes place in Dawsonville, GA which is known as one of the biggest bootlegging towns in history! Did you know that moonshining was pretty much how NASCAR started out {read all about that here}? This festival shines a light on all of the history from this time period, plus it has all the fun booths and food of any normal fall festival! I am so excited!
me & my babe at our first Moonshine Festival! Excuse his super cheesing.
Funny story, my family was actually run out of Dawsonville because of bootlegging! Making liquor was how they got by and eventually so many of them ended up running from the law they just relocated to Rabun County where I am from! I love to hear my Papa tell stories about being his Uncle's lookout and driving the car to get away from the cops when he was a kid, yes I said kid. I know it was illegal but it was a different time and I love hearing all about it!
4} You know how when it is summer we complain about the heat and want the cold and in winter we complain about the cold and want the heat? Well that's about to happen again {kinda}. What is up with this weather?! It has been freezing! All I want is a little bit of fall, 70 degree, boot and long sleeve weather. Not this having to bundle up in layers because it's going to be 37 at 8 a.m. crap! Like I've said before.. go home Georgia,you're drunk,
 Even though there are some higher temperatures later in the week if you've seen any of the wooly worms crawling around (those fuzzy caterpillars) they're black instead of brown which anybody from a farming family will know that means a harsh winter is coming quick. So I'm gonna soak up what little bit of fall we have left!

  & yes I was up at 4 a.m this morning, I couldn't sleep for anything!

5} I finally figured out how to make my own button! If you want to swap let me know!

 Here's to a random rambling 5 on Friday post, link up with the girls and share what's on your mind!


  1. That is the prettiest song! Now I'm going to have to listen to all their other songs! Have fun at the Moonshine Festival, sounds awesome :)

    1. I know it, I love the message! Thanks for stopping by, have a good weekend!

  2. That picture is PERFECT!! And I had to laugh! I didn't even notice your hair (coming from a hair stylist that is GOOD news!) but I am the SAME WAY! If there are random strands of hair that aren't in place? That picture is RUINED for me! It's the only thing I can see in the picture, ha ha! But I still try to share them on my blog because I realize that people don't see the imperfections that I see about myself!

    1. Thank you so much! I am SO glad that you (a hairstylist) didn't notice because like you said it is all I see! That is such a true statement, if I didn't point it out I am sure no one would notice. Have a good weekend!

  3. Moonshine Festival this weekend!
    Can't wait to see more pictures!

  4. That picture is awesome and your hair looks incredible! And Georgia weather is drunk this stuff is crazy!

  5. I love those two sisters on Nashville! So talented!

  6. that song! it's wonderful! it gave me goosebumps listening to them, they are the sweetest and so incredibly talented, thanks for the awesome find!
