How close to opening? Let's take a look at the countdown. Remain calm!

Days to the Season: 59
Days to Christmas Day: 101
Yes! We are a mere ONE day away from reaching our next milestone, 100 Days to Christmas Day!! Immediately following, we'll be dipping into double digits as we inch closer to the Christmas Season, which is under two months away, folks!

It's another chilly morning in Upstate New York. We'll be heading back to Ottawa at about 1pm. The temperature currently sits at about 9C/49F. Highs to reach 21C/70F. Not bad for the middle of September! As always, I hope you're enjoying your weekend and able to enjoy some beautiful end-of-summer weather. After all, the official start to Fall is just about a week away!

Have a Superb Sunday, friends!
Have a good and safe trip!

It is always nice to see my family and friends time to time but the general living atmosphere in Lithuania is quite depressing for me after I got use to more relaxing lifestyle in Scotland. Because of that, I miss Scotland and my friends there. :] I came back on Thursday morning and I'm leaving on next Sunday morning so there are 10 days, to be exact, in Lithuania.

As for the jumper, I'm wearing it right now, haha. My dad thinks I'm weird but oh well. ^^

Your banner shows you are a platinum member. Are you still having problems. Sometimes during server updates you'll get a message saying that you need to be a platinum member even though you are. So that might be what was going on especially that late at night.

Goooooood morning! 101 days....wow. This is truly my favorite time of year....I'm one of those who enjoy the build-up as much as the actual day. It builds and builds until we reach Christmas Eve....which I just love. The next 101 days will have so much fun and great stories...I can hardly wait.

Last night at Hobby Lobby, they had little baby outfits for Christmas. Of course, we liked every single outfit they had and then it turned to what she was going to wear and when....since we couldn't agree on the best outfit...Dr. Wifey gets to dress Little Bambina for her parents house and I get to do the same for mine....we also decided that she needs a little tree for her room....it was all so exciting....

This morning...coffee, the boards, and football
This afternoon....coffee, work, and football
Tonight.....football

Go Cowboys!

(Oh....it's an amazing 54 degrees sitting on the deck....jogging pants and a hoodie...awesome)

I have found lovely Holiday jumper
while tidying my closet earlier today. I was very surprised because I had forgotten for a while that I have it, heh. (I posted a picture of it in the album just in case someone would like to take a look.)

I hope everyone is having a great Sunday. Sending best wishes to all!

Hope you enjoy your visit home and the jumper is cute!

I'm the same way. I enjoy the build up as much if not more than the actual day itself.

Sounds like a good comprise with the outfits and I agree that she is going to need a tree for her room.

Sounds like a great way to spend the day!!!!! Go BronColts!!!!!
