First day of Fall


Today is the first day of Fall. Fall and I have a love hate relationship. I love the changing of the leaves, the crisp air, and of course temperatures that both my husband and I could compromise with. If it weren't for the fact that fall leads to winter, we could be good friends. If you haven't guessed, I don't do cold weather well and today is an abnormally cold day for this time of year. We went to breakfast at the Pancake House this morning and I was the only one there bundled up in a long coat and beanie, needless to say Matt thought it was hilarious. I can't believe it's almost winter let alone 2008. I swear, the older I get the faster time seems to fly by. This reminds me of a song I heard the other day. Click here to listen.

I finally got another bedroom set yesterday. I say "another" because Matt had boughten me one last year for Christmas. It was perfect...except for the fact that it was built poorly. Long story short we had it replaced 4 times and ended up just telling RC Willey where to stick it. I love my new one, and not just because it was a third of the price :). Got most of it put together..just have to put together the taller dresser. Ps..Don't mind the mismatched bed skirt...it's the only one we have at the moment ;).

I also FINALLY finished the book I've been reading. It's so hard to find the time to read but when I do It's so much fun. I'm excited to get started on the next books in the series.

Geriatric 1927

Here is a person that has been there, done that, and seen it all. I seen a story on TV about how you tube had changed his life. He was a widower with few family and friends who started to post on you tube simply to let people know he was "alive". There is something so incredibly interesting about listening to someone with so much history tell their life story. I was always so interested in my grandmas life stories, however it was very rare to get a story out of her as she didn't like to talk of the past. Click here to watch his videos.

I Suck

Yes...I am well aware of the fact that I suck at keeping up with the blog entries but here it goes. In the last few months we've managed to get a ton done on the house.
We cut in a back door, had a cement pad poured in the backyard as well as stairs put in, framed the basement, sheet rocked almost all of the basement, and laid the rest of the grass. My mom gave me 2 trees that I planted on Thursday (note trees in picture ;). The projects are never ending but so much fun. This last weekend was great. I spent the majority of the weekend working on the house while Matt did homework in what he calls his office....I usually refer to it as his dungeon. When he did manage to escape we had a blast together as always. We made it to the Greek Festival on Friday although it wasn't the biggest hit. And just because one night of pink cotton candy isn't enough, we went to the fair on Saturday. The fair gave us a chance to look at a bunch of nice, relaxing, take your book after a long day at work hot tubs....okay back to reality. Speaking of toys, we bought a patio fire pit. If you know me...ya know its my new favorite toy.

Took the dogs to the school when I got home from work to play ball. Leave it up to Sam to find the one mud hole in the entire field. Needless to say, when we got home we played bath time! Next up I'll have to do something with the bathroom, its a muddy wet mess in there. Mr. Matt just got home from school. We're gonna go get some ice cream for root beer floats and watch a movie ( guess the bathroom with have to wait hehe.

Ps...I forgot about this site until Matt posted it ~~> postsecret
