Pictorial Catch Up

I am not sure where this month has gone.  What I do know is that I have been a very bad blogger this month.

I have been very busy making our Halloween costumes.  I would normally post my progress on here but my friend Meeghan declared our costumes a contest and that makes them top secret. Don't worry I am days away from a big reveal.

I have also battled the crud. Every member of our family has been ill.  So, thankful we are beyond that!

I have also just been feeling...boring lately. I keep hoping it will pass. Like one day I will wake up and feel creative again. But it just has not happened.

While feeling boring, life has continued. This is my attempt at catching you up on our lives!


We said good-bye to baseball the beginning of this month. We had a great season!  (Can I admit I already miss the baseball moms!)

First Friday! Finally my co-worker and I were not training on first Friday and we were able to antique over lunch! If you are ever in our part of the country on First Friday/First Weekend, go to Good JuJu! It is in our West Bottoms and is a great time!

We attended our Herring Family Reunion the beginning of this month. It was super great to see extended family. I especially enjoyed visiting with my Aunt and Uncle who drove in from Illinois and my cousin and his wife who flew in from West Texas.  This is a photo of my Great Great Grandparents cabin. My Great Aunt owns it and she invites us all back once a year to visit the farm. So many great memories are still being made here!

My husband and I spent a weekend target practicing with some friends from high school. Good times. I will say I am a better shot than bowler (which we also did that weekend)!


This place opened less than 2 miles from my home. Talk about temptation!

Homecoming came and went. This is my son's second homecoming. I was so proud of him. His date was beautiful. He looked sharp.

Sewing. Sewing. Sewing. Let's be honest, that is really all I have done for the past three/four weeks. I think I started sewing on October 2 and I have just finished. We have eaten every meal around the sewing machine for the past month. I am ready to put it away and not see it for a few months!

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary this week. He is honestly the love of my life. I am so blessed to have him. When you meet him, you see a big burly biker type man. But when you get to know him you discover a devoted family man with a big heart and a dry sense of humor. We have our moments but I absolutely love my life with him!

Of course, October almost demands a trip to the pumpkin patch! We took The Short Chic to the pumpkin patch today with our dear friend Shannon. It was the most perfect day!

There you have it. A month of craziness. A month of fun. A month of memories!

 Oh and just for fun, one last photo. Of The Boy. He went straight from baseball into basketball conditioning. Every day he leaves the house in the dark looking like this. It totally cracks me up!

On backpack for school work. The other is full of basketball gear.

Have a great Monday!
