Ode to Fall…and A Bit of Randomness

This little nugget turned 2 last week!  I still remember birthing the 10lb 2.5oz lad like it was yesterday.

I’m sure everyone knows who the annoying as all heck Caillou is.  I let my first born watch him a couple of times, until she started to talk baby talk like he does and then I banned it for a loooong time.  My middle child was introduced to it at age 3 and was only allowed to watch it if I needed to get something done.  (Yes, I bribed him.)  Now to the third child. Listen up here ladies and gents.  By the time the third child arrives, you just don’t really give a crap any more give in and let them get away with whatever because you’re already going gray and would rather listen to that annoying little cartoon voice than a crying child any day of the week.  The End.  Signed ~ Searching for Sanity.

The kids have been begging to go bowling for a while now and we decided to do just that one Friday afternoon.  We had so much fun and we’ll definitely be going again!  They are seriously the cutest.  Love them.

Some days 5 o’clock in the pm at our house looks like this.

I am so glad that Fall is here because that means soups and stews in the slow cooker. Although, I don’t think AZ got the memo because it hit 105 here yesterday and is supposed to be 107 today.

I love to read, but don’t get a chance to do it near as much as I used to and it’s taken me like 3 weeks to read 100 pages in ‘Gone Girl’.  I’ve been dying to see the movie, but wanted to read the book first.  It’s due back at the library this Saturday and I have very little faith that I’ll finish it.  So far the book is right up my alley, but I guess the movie will have to do.

I like to collect globes and this is my most recent purchase.  I really want to put it on the bookcases in my living room, but the problem is that they’ve been sitting in my garage for about, oooh 9 months now, waiting to be sanded and painted.  I wasn’t able to work on them over the summer because the temp is too high to do any sort of painting out there.  I plan to use the spray gun.  It will be my first time and I’m a little nervous.  Wish me all the luck!

Sugar cones.  Aren’t they the best?  I’ll take mine with Peppermint Wonderland ice cream please.

I got these puppies in the mail yesterday – woot!  My old running shoes were about 6 months past due.  I can’t wait to try these out.  Although, to be honest, I haven’t been running for a couple of weeks now.  Boo.  I’ve just been so focused on house projects that I haven’t put in the time to workout.  I best get my rear in gear though because I’m running another half marathon (see my first one here) in January.

I made some of Linguini with Shrimp Scampi last night for dinner and it’s pretty much my new favorite.  If you love lemon, garlic and shrimp…you’ll love this.  It’s pretty quick and easy to make too.  Recipe found here.

Who’s ready for an awkward photo?!  Look at me and the hubby standing tall and proud next to our HUGE new tree.  So proud of our $23 Lowe’s purchase.  Lolz.  We plan on taking a photo every year until it’s 50 feet tall.  I’m sure you all cannot wait.

Anywho, that’s what we’ve been up to.  Happy Wednesday!
