This is Halloween!

It's that time of year again- the smell of pumpkin is filling the kitchen, the chiminea is lit and the candy ready to be given out! (what I haven't eaten yet, anyway...)
I have a secret obsession with Almond Joys, so unfortunately guys, there are none left in our candy bowl!

However, there is an uber cute little alien awaiting our trick-or-treaters, so hopefully that makes up for our lack of chocolate covered coconut.

No, I haven't raided the mother ship... Connor is dressed up as the cutest, and drool-iest little alien I know.


 No more pictures, please...

The last one is just thrown in there to show the lovely evening about to be had!

The end!

Pumpkin Patchin'

Is it already Sunday night? These days go by so super fast it's not even fair! However, this weekend I was able to rest (much needed since I have been so sick the last few weeks) and spend much needed time with Little C and Big C. 

Saturday Chase went and played golf with a friend and I slept in all morning (trying to get over this icky stuff). After I bumped around the house for a few hours, I finally cleaned, did laundry and enjoyed the day with Little C. 

Hubs also brought home a sweet gas grill as well! We're already planning next week's menu for lots of grilling...

Today has been busy, but we came home after church and napped.. and napped some more, and then traveled back up to Bentonville for a Chili Cook-Off and Pumpkin Patch. Which leads me to the title of this post! Of course I took the camera and snapped some cute photos of Baby C. 
Some friends who are more camera savvy than I am were there and showed me a few pointers and let me test out their sweet lens. I'm pretty sure I know what's going on my Christmas list for this year.

Anyhoodle, I know the real reason you're reading, so I'll give ya the pictures already!

Pin me!

I am addicted... to Pinterest!

For years, I've had tons of great ideas for crafts, projects, and organization but always "forget" what I had in mind, or never know exactly how to make it happen.

Pinterest, you've solved all of my problems!!

I already have two projects in queue and can't wait to try out some of these delish recipes.


Come and pin along with me!
