Pardon me, have we met?

Oh, hello there. No, your eyes are not mistaking you. The blog formerly known as FontyFest is back (for today). I apologize for the lack of posts. I have been feeding my unhealthy addiction to Candy Crush (thanks, mom) and Pretty Little Liars -- preferably feeding said addictions simultaneously (whilst laying in bed) which leads to much Roku rewinding since I was too engrossed in "clearing the jelly" to see what A texted Aria that made her look like this: 
Somehow while I was holed up watching 32 episodes of Pretty Little Liars, it became fall! Saturday marks the first home game for the Georgia Bulldawgs, and I am all ready for tailgating and sporting my red & black. 
Along with football season comes a round of fall weddings. Those October "Save the Dates" have been replaced on the event bulletin board with formal invitations, and it is time to get shopping for another round of weddings... not that I am complaining. I wish my wedding wardrobe included some of this YSL jewelry...
