Phew.. That was rough

Sorry for my absence. I just worked a big 7 day stretch at work and had very long eventful days.

So this morning Scout and I are cuddling up and catching up on blogs, laundry and Giuliana and Bill.

Fall Threads

We had fall-ish weather this past weekend. It was glorious, however I know it will be in the 90's again very shortly.
With the brisk weather it got me thinking about boots, scarves and jackets. Here is whats on my mind:

DIY:Yarn Wreath

Had a great day today! Got up early, Matt and I each got our oils changed, ran errands and did my first fall craft. It was super easy and cost less than $5. With out further ado, meet my new front door wreath.

I didn't use too many materials. I bought a large piece of foam tubing at Lowes that I cut and duct taped into a ring ($1.50). Then I headed over to Michaels for the yarn ($1.99) and the felt ($1.20). Just basically a lot of hot glue and about 2 hours of crafting.

Here is a tutorial on how to make the felt flowers if you want to make your own.

Hello Friday

After a crazy, hectic day at work {Can you say Bridal Group Spa Day} I'm so looking forward to this weekend. Since I worked on Labor Day, I get to enjoy a 3 day weekend.

How fun is it to recreate childhood pictures?

Babysitting Baby Poppy

My friend SaraRuth is moving today across town. Gladly I offered her my babysitting services. The day has been full of Sesame Street, carrots & applesauce and babbling stories.

Home of the Brave

10 years ago I was 17 years old and a Senior in high school. I was sitting in my entrepreneurship class when my vice principal made the announcement about the attacks. I was scared and a friend next to me started to cry. Her uncle worked in the Pentagon. That afternoon the Senior class sat in the library watching the footage. This was before each classroom had a tv or computer with internet.

My basketball game was cancelled that evening and my whole family stayed at home that night and watched the coverage. In the coming weeks I remember donating blood and money to the cause. I didn't know how else to help. I remember a couple of my friends were signing up for the Marines. I was so proud of their sacrifice.

So on this day hold your family, friends and neighbors close. Be selfless and do a kind act for a stranger. Even if we can't agree on all topics, remember that we share this great country and our freedom is constantly being earned.

God Bless America, land that I love.

Where were you on that day?

Bossy Pants

Has anyone read Bossy Pants? If so, how was it?
I'm a huge 30 Rock and Tina Fey fan. Just wanted to hear some reviews.

I Took the Plunge

So I did it after contemplating many months and joined Pinterest. I blame my good friend SaraRuth.

It has pretty much consumed my life for the past 24-hours. I need to walk away, but another gorgeous image keeps showing up. So here are a couple of Dream House images I've found. Enjoy.
