Pumpkins & Markets

1. We're trying out for a month before I decide if it's worth paying for. So far I really like it and Ash seems to be learning new things from it which is the goal.
2. We got all the kids psyched to go to our local pumpkin patch and they were closed! They had the hale bales all set up and no pumpkins. They usually have them out by now and hay rides. We get our Christmas tree from this same farm every year too. I'm worried with the owner's health issues that they're closing down and didn't see an update on the website. :(
3. I looked up the knitted cowl that Dee is doing for her knit along and I'm already confused and it's probably so easy. I want a knitting partner so bad.
4. I either want to go to the community flea market or the farmer's market on Saturday. I'll just pack up the kids and see where we end up.
5. I'm so happy it's finally cooling off. Holden actually said it was cold. And it was probably 60 degrees. Haha

Too cool for cute

1. Does anyone watch Project Runway? If so who's your favorite designer? I love Sonjia. I want her to design me a wardrobe.
2. I went to Toys R Us and checked out Heidi Klum's Truly Scrumptious kids clothing line and it's pretty meh. It's not ugly but nothing about it really appealed to me especially the girls stuff. The monster print for the boys is cute-ish.
3. On X Factor Demi had spikes on her shoulders and I wanna do that so bad!
4. I'm ready to get another tattoo.
5. The boys have been wanting to hold Mina all the time and it's so cute. Holden and Ash are always sweet with her but it really gets me when Luc asks to hold her. He always acts so tough and too cool so it's adorable when he asks.

1. The debate was disappointing. There were a lot of issues that just weren't addressed. People say Romney won but I don't feel like he said anything of any significance. But then again neither did Obama.
2. I'm hooked on a bunch of kids clothing blogs now thanks to Dee. I don't want to rush the time but it will be fun to dress Mina up more when she can sit up or crawl and walk. I like her to be super comfortable while she's just a blob. Haha Thank goodness I have Vann's cute headbands to keep her stylish.
3. I would live in a one room craphole just to see what it's like to love in London or Paris for like a year. We would just spend every second outside exploring. And own lots of rain boots and umbrellas.
4. I scored a ton of clothes from today with 40% of clearance and an extra 20% off. Can't wait to get my stuff!
5. Can I start wearing boots when the temp drops below 80 degrees next Monday?

1. My baby turned 5.
2. My baby isn't a baby anymore.
3. Am I still allowed to call him my baby?
4. Not gonna cry.
5. Why does he look so big?

I wanna wear leggings, dammit!!

1. Ash and I went to Target to buy the ingredients for his birthday cake and he asked for a store bought cake! So we ordered him a Hot Wheels cake. I was a little sad at first but then felt pretty relieved actually. Haha Like Jennie said - you wanna do it all but... Sometimes it's nice NOT to when your kids give you a chance to breathe.
2. If my kid knows his vocab words already it is stupid to make him do flash cards. Busywork is bullshit.
3. The final contestant on The Voice blind auditions was great. His bullrider dad... OMG.
4. Can anyone recommend kid's clothing and/or women's that you love that may not be a brand I've ever heard of? Some obscure little label or etsy shop or something? I just discovered Thief & Bandit today and I love the little kids leggings.
5. 102 degrees today. So pissed off. But supposed to drop to 84 by Thursday. Fall, I miss you.

Sherlock Holmes & Nutella (that sounds dirty)

1. I wish I could remember what it felt like to be a baby and be snuggled by my Mommy. I bet it felt awesome.
2. I made some yummy chicken and potatoes tonight. The chicken just had a coating of Greek yogurt, parmesan, garlic powder, seasoning salt and pepper. And it was so juicy and tender. I have a hard time not drying out my chicken when I have too much going on around dinner time. But I nailed it tonight.
3. Elementary is good. Johnny Lee Miller is great. Hot and great. I don't think I'll ever get sick of Sherlock Holmes films or TV shows. I love them all.
4. I wanna try to make some Nutella no bake cookies tomorrow. And then eat them all in one sitting.
5. Teresa has inspired me to make an October horror/suspense reading list. I want to fit in some reading in my life. I miss it.
