Five Very Random Thoughts

We made it -- it's Friday!  I'm going to keep it short and sweet today and share five random things from this week.  Let's get right to it!


+ I cooked bacon in the oven and it turned out surprisingly amazing.  I was worried it wouldn't taste the same or cook right but it totally did and I'll never go back to that frying pan mess again!  Click here for the recipe I followed.

+ This article about Instagram is hilarious.  And this article is for my fellow Friday Night Lights lovers!

+ I've mentioned before that the apartment next door to us went for up for sale as a foreclosure last year and some questionable neighbors moved in.  It's a girl and her boyfriend and they fight ALL.THE.TIME.  About once a month, we're woken up in the middle of the night to them screaming at each other.  I legit heard these words come out of her mouth before: "Just knife me!  Why don't you just knife me?!"  They are seriously insane.

Anyway, Wednesday night we were woken up at 4:45 am (just getting home from the bar I suppose?) to them screaming.  It went on for a little bit until another neighbor yelled out his window "Hey apartment ###, shut the f*ck up!"  They did shut up, I will give them that.  Thank you to my fed up neighbor for voicing all of our opinion, you are my hero.

+ I want these!  I've never bought shoes from Forever 21 before... good/bad idea?  I need a new pair of black pumps and the price is definitely right!

+ You guys.... I think we have a house!  We've agreed on an offer with the sellers, our deposit has been put down, an inspection date has been set.... I think it's really finally happening!  Hopefully I'm not jinxing things by posting this ;)  This is the farthest we've ever gotten in the buying process so cross your fingers/say a little prayer for us that this one works out!

I hope you all have a wonderful day!  We are up to something very fun this weekend so make sure to follow along on Instagram :)

  1. I started baking bacon last year...and haven't turned back! It's so much easier! And, wow, that's scary - and so sad - about your neighbors. I hope they can get out of their abusive relationship and turn their lives around. I'll be keeping them in our prayers. And good luck with the new house! How exciting! Prayers for you too! -Jess

  6. So excited you guys have found a house! I hope the inspection goes well and I can't wait to hear more about it! Especially after hearing about your neighbors-- that sounds soo obnoxious, I'm glad someone else said something that got them to be quiet! I've seen articles about cooking bacon in the oven but have never tried it so I'm glad to hear it worked out for you!

  13. i am the worst - worst! - at cooking bacon, the only way i can cook it is in the oven. as soon as i figured out how, i gave up trying any other way! oh my goodness!! yay for the house! i am so excited for you guys! i'm sure you know, but don't worry about the inspection - they will - and have to - find things wrong with it, its all about what you'll accept / the sellers will fix. there was a ton wrong with ours and the seller fixed it all without question. fabulous. have fun in Charleston!

  20. CONGRATS on the house!!! Can't wait to hear more details/see pics!!!!

    And bacon in the oven? I'll have to try that out... I usually set off the smoke alarm when cooking it on the stove, and I'm not a fan of how it comes out in the microwave :-P

    Happy Friday!
