Lately...

I have gotten a little behind on blogging....

Really behind on laundry...

And I have been getting out our Fall/Winter clothes...


I have been going overboard with pumpkin recipes...

Shamefully buying Pumpkin Peeps...

Loving the cool air...

And continuing to wear my flip flops, even though its only 50 degrees.

I have been learning and listening - 2 things I need to do more often. I actually think God has moved my seat to the front of the classroom in case I couldn't hear from the back...where I tend to stand when I know He is always right, and I am always...stubborn.

I have been taking lots of pictures...

And trying to plan a 1st birthday party for these little loves...

I am still trying to believe that our house sold this last week, and we are now looking for a new home.

I am super excited, and a little nervous...

But I know it's time.

If all goes well, we will close on Oct. 30th...

And we are looking at moving to a place like this...which is the opposite of where we are now.

I have been getting my Fall decor out...

And burning my spice candle.

I have been so thankful for the "not-so Mother Of The Year" comments...and {laughing} at your stories...

And Reese? She's back on the Monkey Bars...apparently she laughs in the face of a Small Fracture.

So that's what is going on around here - I know, real exciting, right!?

I hope you all had a great weekend!!

I am so behind on reading my dear friend's blogs ... since we're on a Road Trip. But, good to hear that your house sold. Now, you can pray for ours to sell. We, too, want to move to a place like your picture.

Congrats on selling your house! Trying not to be jealous of all that green space you're gonna have. I grew up on an acreage and sometimes it's hard to adjust to Suburbia :)

Time for blogging?! It's a wonder you have time for breathing with all your lovely's :)
Congrats on your house selling--you're a better woman than I to decorate while you're packing :)
