We are totally in full blown Christmas mode here, so it seems kind of weird to back track with a November phone dump. The beginning of November and the end of November are completely different from one another, aren't they? November starts like Hey, it's Fall and finally chilly enough for gloves and boots and it ends with Christmas lights and Jingle Bells. And a few extra pounds from all the festivities, but let's just not say anymore about that.
So... Fall. Can we give it one last hurrah?
Because I love it.
It kicked my tail in all kinds of ways this year (Soccer Season, why so merciless?), but it's still my favorite season. Love it!
The kids and I went for a little hike out of the blue one day, and this was my footwear. Make it work.
I know. I have twinkly lights beside my head and I'm looking at candy corn at the same time. It's blowing my mind. Is it Fall or is it Christmastime? Or can it be BOTH?
And you've tried this combo, right? Right?! The peanuts with the Indian Corn is my favorite duo. Indian Corn is a blessing and a gift.
Trader Joe's Tomato & Roasted Red Pepper. With a "grown up" grilled cheese made with pesto and Italian cheese blend (preshredded... I'm okay with that). Put garlic croutons in your soup. You will LOVE it. And me.
Of course, as always happens in mid-November in Ohio, there was a lovely, lovely warm snap. And the shorts busted out. And the sunscreen. Crazytrain. So, we played hookey from school all week long and called it Fall Break.
It took five children, a looooong day outside, and a very clean park for me to allow this unseemly practice. Drinking fountains freak me out only a little less than hotel bedding does.
Oops! You MISSED!
Either I'm talking too much or I've gone far too long between phone dumps. This post is getting long. Less commentary. More photos...
Embracing the Camera. Boom. Didn't even plan that. Link up!
More Embracing... and squirrel crashing.
(There is an app for EVERYTHING).
I'm still talking.
I was supposed to just post photos. Less talking. But, it's stupid late and I've had entirely too much caffeine. Isn't this fun?
I think that should be a new strategy of mine. To only blog whilst hyped up on caffeine and sugar. This blog might go places.
This was taken on my birthday. 37... thanks for asking. I think my birthday might be a pretty major reason why Fall is my favorite season.
Yes. My birthday and googly eyed turkeys. (Artistic credit belongs to my niecey weesies, LuLu and Wumple). Wumple likes eyes. A lot.
How long do you wanna bet it's going to take me to fall asleep tonight? I drank a cup of coffee at around 2 this afternoon because I needed to paint some closet doors instead of take a nap (unfun) and then a Coke Zero at 6:30pm.
Yes, I am an idiot.
