First, I had a few appointments. One was with my chiropractor who is amazing! She has really helped me a lot, and is a big animal lover too. She told me I could bring Harlowe anytime if she isn't feeling well, and she would adjust her too. For free...nice lady.

Then, I had to go to Menard's for some batteries, nails, and light bulbs. I found lots of Christmas things there, just starting to be stocked. Awesome!!

After that, I came home & started going through our storage under the stairs. Adrian couldn't find his carving tools, and with it being prime pumpkin carving season, I had to save the day! I finally found them packed in Christmas things (?)!! Must've been by Adrian... So, he's happy, and I had fun looking at all of our Christmas decorations!! Some of them have never been used, so can't wait to put them out this year!! Adrian hit clearance the past two years, and found some awesome things.

Going to start dinner soon. Date night tonight =]

Hope you're all having a great weekend so far!!

xx
Glad you had a good day! Looking forward to seeing the pictures of your Holiday decorations up too. ^^

Haha, I know what you mean. It always happens to me when looking for literature to support my essays. ^^ Hopefully the search went better after you had had a break. :]

Have a lovely last weekend of September everyone!

Good Morning, Wonderful Weekend Friends.

What else is Wonderful?

Why our declining count figures, of course.
And ALSO the fact we are now down to SINGLE DIGITS to the 90 percent Home Stretch Season marker, our final stop before the commencement of Christmas Season 2013!

Days to the Season: 46
Days to Christmas Day: 88
Nine days.
Wow. Just.....WOW!

Cool still and delightful.
We don't often get stuck in a positive weather pattern around here but we are now, and I couldn't be happier!
We have started the day at 56 degrees.

Have a Sensational Saturday and a truly Wonderous final Weekend of September, Folks!

Good morning! Getting ready to head out to a fall festival for the day with my kids and my mom. This evening, DH and I have a wedding to attend. It will be another fun day.

I will try to catch up later!

Lazy day here today , well almost, I am catching up with some house work. DH has to catch up with a few things at the office today so we are on our own till later.

Have a fun, safe and happy weekend everybody!

Have fun deciding on the Halloween costumes. I use to love picking costumes out with the girls. When they were little we would head to the Disney Store, usually about this time of the year. They especially loved the princess costumes. Enjoy your day Festive Spirit!

As I was getting ready to go to sleep last night, I realized my a/c was running. It's still too hot here too!

Good morning!
I need to get moving soon. I have to go to the supermarket and butcher to get all of my food shopping done. I have nothing in the house. I used the last of the coffee creamer earlier and I could really go for another cup right about now! Not too much going on today. My youngest has a haircut appointment and I am going to take a ride with my middle one for more job applications. While I am in the stores I will keep my eyes open for anything Christmassy, I haven't been seeing too much around here yet.
I hope everyone is well and has a wonderful day

Thank you! I talk to them on the phone just about every day. But the busyness of life prevents us from getting together as often as we would like!
