don’t mind the red eyes, check out those lashes (on the right!).
(left- before. right- after)
thanks to Kelsey, who hosted a virtual party a couple weeks ago, I’ve recently discovered the magic of 3-D lashes.
I’m not gonna lie, it’s a little weird—like putting fuzzy teddy bears on your lashes— but the result makes up for any bizarre factor in between application and result.
plus, for the price of the kit, I think it’s totally worth at least one attempt.
a girl I went to undergrad with sells the kit and I highly recommend you give it a go: http://www.youniqueproducts.com/KateParsons 
I’m getting nothing for this post, just spreading the look of luscious lashes.

as previously mentioned, Pat McAfee is our Fuel Up to Play 60 player for the next two years.
As a fan of the Colts and a huge fan of the #Boomstick, every time I get to see this guy, I am thrilled.
Tuesday night was event night.
With over 400 people in attendance, McAfee easily stole the attention of those both young & old(er).
He stayed way over his contracted time to finish off autographs, pictures, and videos with the crowd, and even made my mother’s night by signing a past picture of her baby girl with the best punter in the league.
It was a great night and we are so fortunate to have a class-act Colt on our side.

While I was on the west coast, I received an email from SEE Eyewear asking if I’d like to visit their new Indianapolis shop in exchange for a pair of free designer glasses (!!!).
Of course I was there within 48 hours of landing back in Indy!
Wednesday of last week, I stopped in their shop at the Fashion Mall, tried on 8 pairs of glasses and settled on a nice autumn hue.
By Saturday, they were ready to be snatched up, & my gosh, I’m in love.
Besides my blue & brown tortoise frames, I’ve always stuck to something more classic, but these army green stunners are going to make my fall.
Thanks for the opportunity, SEE! You are all fabulous.

Saturday night, we returned to my mama’s alma mater to watch our beloved Huskers dominate the turf.
Joined by our closest friends, we sweated our way through tail gate & the first half (102 degrees is steamy, y’all) before cheering on our boys from the air conditioned home.
being back in a city that means so much us was a blast, and being able to cheer on our corn-fed team was the sweet cherry on top.
