We've received our first game day party invitation. Guess it's time to start think about Gamecock tailgate dresses:





My favorite so far is the last dress, and it's for sale at the store right up the street.

Who else can't wait for the start of college football?

This Brad Paisley song and video just scream summertime fun.

As hot as it's been here in South Carolina, an afternoon at the river sounds just right.

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Welcome to the Weekly Round-Up linky party, hosted by me and Miss Angie from My So-Called Chaos.

This party is all about sharing those fabulous blogs that you've read through the week and promote our blogger community. I hope it will help you use this party to find new blogs to read and build some new blogger friendships.

So, here are the rules:

1. Grab the button.
2. Write a little list of your favorite reads this week and why.
3. Link up below and go find some fabulous new ladies to be friends with.


Grab button for WEEKLY ROUND-UP at HIGH-HEELED LOVE-button
<div class="WEEKLY-ROUND-UP-HIGH-HEELED-LOVE-button" style="width: 250px; margin: 0 auto;"> <a href="http://www.high-heeledlove.com" rel="nofollow"> <img src="http://i1151.photobucket.com/albums/o621/highheeledlove/Blog%20Graphics/47f1b200-2680-4570-861b-31a2456adb15_zps324769d5.jpg" alt="WEEKLY ROUND-UP at HIGH-HEELED LOVE" width="250" height="250" /> </a> </div>
That said, here were my favorite reads lately:

1. It's always fun to see what life lessons someone has learned when they write a letter to their younger self, the way Miss Chelsea wrote one to herself at age 17.

2. As always, The Happy Housie blog is inspiring me to add more color to my home. Aren't these washi tape clothes pins adorable?

3. Meg and her husband celebrated five years of marriage this week, and she shares five lessons she's learned during that timeframe.

4. & 5. Pure Grace Farms has been sharing lots of mouthwatering recipes lately, and I've fallen in love with the both of these: grilled salmon and fresh raspberry tart. When we finish this dining room remodel, I clearly need to have a dinner party.

Good morning, lovelies!

Confession is good for the soul, so grab the button and let it all out. You'll feel better when you're finished.

Grab button for FRIDAY CONFESSIONAL at HIGH-HEELED LOVE-button
<div class="FRIDAY-CONFESSIONAL-HIGH-HEELED-LOVE-button" style="width: 200px; margin: 0 auto;"> <a href="http://www.high-heeledlove.com" rel="nofollow"> <img src="http://i1151.photobucket.com/albums/o621/highheeledlove/Blog%20Graphics/HighHeeledLove_zps6db62c81.jpg" alt="FRIDAY CONFESSIONAL at HIGH-HEELED LOVE" width="200" height="256" /> </a> </div>

I confess...

I think this "Weird Al" Yankovic is priceless. Every song that I've heard from his new album, Mandatory Fun, is hilarious.


I've actually seen Weird Al in concert; he played in Charlotte my freshman year of college. I wish I had pictures from that concert to share.

I confess...

I was shocked this week to read this article. It blows my mind that some people would think these spreadsheets are okay. We women deserve better than that, and I'm thankful for my husband.

I confess...

My buddy continues to send me pictures of the cuteness that is Baby Emily. I love seeing her sweet face and can't wait to visit and love on her again.
Sweet


I confess...

I have begun shopping for golf clubs. I'm lucky that I have my brother to help me through this process because I think until you've been playing the sport a while it's hard to know what you want. Fortunately, he's been able to sniff out some good deals on used left-handed ladies sets online.


I confess...

I'm sure y'all have seen the app TimeHop. It has been all over my Facebook feed. Well, I gave in, and it's been fun seeing what I posted two, three, five years ago. Some things haven't changed...for example:
Timehop Sangria at High-Heeled Love

Y'all know that I couldn't share just that one picture of sweet baby Emily on Friday Confessional. Here are some pictures from our visit to meet her on Sunday and that her father has sent me this week. (Excuse my crazy facial expressions...my husband doesn't let me know what he's snapping the photos.)

Naturally, this is the just the beginning of Miss Em's appearances on the blog. She will likely be starring in other posts in the near future.

Anyone who's been in a relationship before knows you have those days where you just can't seem to get along. The Mister and I are pretty normal in that regard.

Doesn't this song by O.A.R. (from the Rockville LP) just sum those days up?


Luckily, when you have a hard-to-get-along kind of day, you can always wake up the next morning and have a completely new day.

That said, here were my favorite reads lately:

1. With the heat that is July in South Carolina, we drink a lot of water. It's fun to find new ways to dress it up, and I'm loving this recipe for strawberry, lime, cucumber and mint water.

2. This DIY Pallet Furniture is a cheap and fun way to get a new look for the patio.

3. I've just joined Fitocracy this past week, but it's a great wealth of resources on fitness and healthy living. The blog post on delaying gratification was excellent.

4. Miss Angie may be my co-host for this party, but I have share her post where she discusses coming to terms with a "friend" using her. We all deserve better, and usually the hardest part is admitting to ourselves what is happening.

5. If you're looking for something to motivate you to stick with (or start) your fitness routine in August, there's a #NOEXCUSES fitness challenge to complete 1500 minutes of workout time in the month.

Good morning, lovelies!
Confession is good for the soul, so grab the button and let it all out. You'll feel better when you're finished.

Grab button for FRIDAY CONFESSIONAL at HIGH-HEELED LOVE-button
<div class="FRIDAY-CONFESSIONAL-HIGH-HEELED-LOVE-button" style="width: 200px; margin: 0 auto;"> <a href="http://www.high-heeledlove.com" rel="nofollow"> <img src="http://i1151.photobucket.com/albums/o621/highheeledlove/Blog%20Graphics/HighHeeledLove_zps6db62c81.jpg" alt="FRIDAY CONFESSIONAL at HIGH-HEELED LOVE" width="200" height="256" /> </a> </div>

I confess...

I know this post is a day late. I'm sorry. Yesterday was a big day. I hope you'll forgive me and still join the party. I'll be extending the linky a couple extra days since the post went up late.

I confess...

I started the morning with my mother-in-law....We were taking care of some official sort of things, and she felt better having some help. All I can say is God is good. I can't go into any details, but I can say that what started as a pretty stressful situation is nearly resolved in the best possible way.

I confess...

Then, the Mister alerted me to this a Facebook post from my aunt in Washington. The wildfire in their area had caused them to have to evacuate twice. They had heard that their home was burned, and my aunt was heartbroken, thinking she'd lost her house and her horses.

Well, God is good. They were informed yesterday morning, that even though they lost their barn, the horses are okay and the house was spared.
Aunt April & I at her wedding last month.

There is a still a lot of damage in that area, and many families in the community lost their homes. Please keep them in your prayers.

I confess...

Also yesterday afternoon, my best friend texted me that they were on the way to the hospital because his girlfriend's water had broken. At a little after 10 p.m., he face-timed me so that I could say hello to my goddaughter.
Baby Emily
Y'all, meet Baby Emily. She's a big girl, weighing in at 10 lbs 1 oz. The Mister and I will be driving up tomorrow to meet her in person. I'm in love. God is good.

Good morning, lovelies!
Confession is good for the soul, so grab the button and let it all out. You'll feel better when you're finished.

Grab button for FRIDAY CONFESSIONAL at HIGH-HEELED LOVE-button
<div class="FRIDAY-CONFESSIONAL-HIGH-HEELED-LOVE-button" style="width: 200px; margin: 0 auto;"> <a href="http://www.high-heeledlove.com" rel="nofollow"> <img src="http://i1151.photobucket.com/albums/o621/highheeledlove/Blog%20Graphics/HighHeeledLove_zps6db62c81.jpg" alt="FRIDAY CONFESSIONAL at HIGH-HEELED LOVE" width="200" height="256" /> </a> </div>

I confess...

This has been a busy and productive week at work, which is needed after that week of vacation and the long holiday weekend. The downside to productivity at work is less time to catch up with y'all! If I didn't have to work, I'd have so much more time to blog.

I confess...

It has been hot, hot, hot here in South Carolina. The other day, my car said it was 104 degrees, which is before the heat index. I love the winters, but the hot summers are the tradeoff. If I didn't have to work, I'd have so much more time for the pool.

I confess...

As a result of the promotion in jujitsu, I've started working on a new list of techniques that really involve trusting the person I'm training with and in my ability to move with the technique in order to keep myself safe; it's a little scary. I am learning some really cool new throws, though.

I confess...

I got my new Erin Condren life planner ordered this week. I'm loving the new covers, and that they have made the covers interchangeable this year.
I'm going with this cover to begin with.


I confess...

I love this home office space. The Mister and I have decided we need a pull-up bar to hang from. It's gotta be a great back stretch.


And just for laughs...

So, I know that I've been absent from the Weekly Round-Up for a few weeks...that doesn't mean I haven't been reading. Here are my favorite reads lately:

1. We aren't growing snap peas this year, but these garden photos by Pure Grace Farms in her post about preserving and freezing them look so gorgeous that I believe we'll have to next year.

2. I couldn't help but relate to Bonnie's husband in her post at Life of Bon taking photos with someone who doesn't like having their picture taken; I don't like to look like a tourist when I'm traveling. Loved looking at her photos from Europe though.

3. Nina might be on to something with the photo above. Kidding...this post at The Grand Adventures of Me about adjusting her attitude and accepting where is was a good reminder that happiness is about perspective.

4. I'm jumping up and down in support of Healthy Tipping Point's post about non-warped fitness Pinspiration. I may be time do some spring cleaning on my own inspiration board.

5. Doesn't this brie grilled cheese just make you drool? Head over to Flamingos in Raincoats for the recipe.
