high school football. My man played on this team back in the day and a bunch of his former team mates are now coaches. It was soooo cute watching him.
group family photo for my Mama's wall. We decided to hit a local apple/pumpkin farm. It wasn't the same as the last time I'd gone when we'd been allowed to tour the orchard and such. Dangit. Sometimes you have to change plans and be flexible I guess.
We match. I am that girl. Can't help it... don't really want to either. (grin) We ran into Ava's precious teacher from last year and SHE TOOK THIS PHOTO of us for me!!
Thanks Mrs. P! You just ROCK sister!
cutie pie niece Berkeley that I did NOT get enough photos of!! She wuvs her Auntie Sasha so much. Please just know that.
catch some bad guys, hence the lacking number of photographs of my baby niece!
Favorite family photo to date. Even if I am kinda squinting. I was hitting the button and then jumping over pumpkins and RUNNING to land on the side of that wagon before the shutter clicked. Self timers and I go way back. Don't you just love all the jeans and flannel?
homemade cinnamon ice cream. I was enjoying it way to much to stop a snap a photo. We will eat that stuff in heaven, I'm quite sure.
Italian herb tomato soup with fresh thyme from my garden. Yum. (I'll share the recipe later... though I'm pretty sure I've shared it in the long ago past. It's the BEST. And it contains cream. Oh yes, it does. This was my cheat day. Life is too short not to have a cheat day every so often.)
5K... after a year of back junk that kept me from standing up straight on some days... days where I certainly couldn't have even walked a 5K, I feel blessed like crazy to have been able to run this whole thing! And I must say that when my running buddy couldn't make it at the last minute, I felt sick to my stomach with unexpected jitters. I told Adrain that it was like knowing ONE kid at a new high school and then realizing they weren't going to be there and you were going to be all ALONE. I know that's stupid... but I seriously considered not doing it. Adrain was like, "Woman... who are you doing this for? Get yourself out there and rock that run!" And so I did. I met both my personal goals too- one by a surprising amount of time too! Let me just also say... there is nothing like hearing "Mom, I am SO proud of you!" from your hoodlums. Nothing.
Maddy. She turned three so we helped celebrate her.
fluffy white birthday cake at a party ever again. (Thank you gluten intolerance. You stink. Boo!)
spectacular and I will be sharing this recipe as well. I wrote it down as I went this time so I wouldn't forget what I was doing. Ha!
How was your weekend dear friends?
