I Love This Time of Year!

Over the weekend, we were invited out to breakfast by Chris and the boys.  It's been quite a while since we've been able to hang out at our favorite Sunday morning spot so we all jumped in the van and headed out.  During breakfast Rex informed us that we would be heading home just to grab the camera and then we could consider ourselves kidnapped. (He knew that I NEEDED the camera for this kind of trip.)  A half an hour later we found ourselves at Yates Cider Mill to feed the goats and llamas (Little Man's favorite), check out the ponies, and pick out pumpkins (a special treat from Rex).  It was so much fun sharing this time with the boys.  Sometimes I forget how simple little trips like this can be SO much fun! Thanks for kidnapping us Rex, these are the days we will remember. :)

7-10 DAYS!



A couple of weeks ago we were out running errands and having fun just spending time together. Rex went and hung out with his work friends for a while and I went shopping. When we met back up I told Rex that there was something that I wanted him to see because it was just unlike anything I'd ever seen before(counter height, 3 benches, two chairs). To Rex's surprise, we walked into the furniture section to check out this dining room set. We found ourselves walking away from it twice before sitting down for lunch. We talked about the possibility of it being a Christmas present from the family, etc., and then finally decided that we had to have it. We put it on layaway and left. Turns out that we are more excited about it than we expected. We paid it off right away and it will be here in the next week or two! This is going to look so awesome in our apartment! What do you think?

Nothing Beats Time Spent with Friends

We were very lucky to get a visit from some good friends this past weekend.  Jer started out as a college friend.  Through the years, he has become family.  Friends and family mean the world to us as you know and we were so delighted to spend this time with him and Bets talking about and celebrating their engagement.  My favorite thing about these situations is that it really doesn't matter how long we've been apart, our hearts just fall back in sync.  Bets is no exception to this.  We may not have spent much time with her so far, but it seems as if she's always been a part of our equation. We love that about her!
Anyway, we had some wonderful conversations about their wedding and can't wait to be a part of their special day.  Once again, we are reminded just how lucky we are to be surrounded by our friends who are family and our family who are our friends.  We couldn't be more grateful!

My Week in the Life

I must say, I really enjoyed documenting my week (yes, it was a couple of weeks ago already).  I took a lot of photos around the house and throughout my week that I never otherwise would have taken.  I've got the silly photos like the ones of cereal on top of the fridge, my desktop photo on my computer, Rex's shoes left haphazardly on the floor, etc.  In the process though, I also got the photos of us cuddling each other and the cats, eating dinner with the neighbors, and even some of my room at school where I spend more time than anywhere else 9 months of the year.  These are the photos I would have forgotten to have taken. Now I'm in the process of designing my A Week In My Life album.  This is where the real fun begins, bringing it all together. Here are a few of my favorite photos of the week, just everyday life screaming to be documented...
