fall days

the fall has totally blown by us here. i was really looking forward to that in-between time. i love cardigans and long sleeves, light scarves and the occasional gloves. instead we were bombarded with snow at the end of the month and left with no power for 5 days. the snow ushered in cooler weather and now i'm in need of a new winter coat.

right in the midst of october, cheri and i went out and took some maternity pics. i was absolutely terrified because she is an amazing photographer, but i ended up pleased with how they turned out. i am so blessed to have such a good friend in her. i can't wait for that little one to arrive!

catching up.

i have been behind on life lately. i've missed my grateful fridays when they were the only thing i could seem to post. going to grad school and raising a family is really hard work. when i have my free time i'm usually just tired and reading other people's blogs instead of writing my own.

but i'm grateful for the busy-ness and grateful for the people in my life.

and a whole day spent away from the kids with just my hubby. i'm actually pretty mortified at the large-ness of my face in this picture, but its the only one of the both of us from the entire day.

other things i'm grateful for:
-good friends
-tall socks (i just love that feeling)
-playing tricks on my hubby
-finishing projects (soon to be revealed)
-warm weather foods

grateful friday

my grateful friday:
- raspberries finally appearing outside. my mom grabbed three raspberry bushes a few years ago, and after a few rounds of combat with the tree roots in my backyard, we planted them in the ground. one is outgrowing his brothers because we planted him a year earlier than the other two. the appearance of raspberries was highly anticipated and we kept checking. finally, last week.... berries! it was like magic.
- the cooler weather is a big win this week.
- a new duvet and comforter for our bed from ikea. it is making me actually want to make the bed. this is a huge feat.
- cleaning the house with my hubby. makes even the worst tasks a whole lot more enjoyable.
- i bought a whole box of clementines at BJ's this week. they are incredibly juicy and the perfect snack to fight off a sweet craving.
