But we definitely do pumpkins. And I couldn’t help but share this lil’ pumpkin from 2011.
1. I had my last caffeine yesterday.
It was getting to the point where I needed two coffees daily and I was still getting headaches at night. Maybe the headaches are something else. Maybe I actually have measles, mumps, and rubella but until I eliminate caffeine, I won’t be sure.
Regardless, I used my last caffeinated Keurig pod and I’m only buying decaf from now on. There are very few things I can control in my life. This is one that I can.
Pray for Matty B. And my kids. And my co-workers.
2. We lived in Portland for 7+ years and I never once experienced Cafe Yumm. It took the Portland airport to make this happen.
3. Free apples=apple crisp
5. Daylight Saving Time?
How effective can a leaf raker be if she’s wearing an Elsa nightgown and Mardi Gras beads?
First, I’ll acknowledge that these are melon baller apple spheres. No one can really eat a whole caramel apple so I took advice from Pinterest (bad idea) and used a melon baller to create these beauties.
How do you get caramel to stick to apples?
Also, where do you draw the line between fashion and practicality?
But he’s so smart.
And he’s so funny.
He’s got this crazy business sense.
In the quest for jerseys, money has become an issue. The obvious solution? Draw pictures of jerseys and then charge people “real money” to purchase them. This one is only $4.99 but the Vikings version (Unk C’s team) is more expensive. Dude knows his clientele.
Finally, this kid is just quirky.
He was listening to Axel F. On repeat. From Umatilla to Walla Walla.
And while I love Walla Walla, Klicker’s just doesn’t cut it. If Sauvie Island is like a sandbox, Klicker’s is like a cup of dirt.
Imagine the activities that would make the most epic pumpkin patch experience ever.
This was the bug train but add pumpkin slide, swing zip line, mini corn maze, giant corn maze, corn tunnels, frontier fort, and more.
Matty B doesn’t know this yet but we are going to Bauman Farms every fall for the rest of our lives.
1. The greys are getting so out of control that I’m considering doing this:
2. We’ve been getting some beautiful produce in our CSA box.
3. Pumpkin patch with this dude.
4. I know I’m not supposed to like Halloween but I’m completely smitten with all the cute Halloween desserts.
5. This girl has been doing her own hair lately.
7 am: Coffee. With almond milk. And a little brown sugar since it was already out for the kiddos oatmeal.
8 am: Took the kids to school and was pleasantly surprised that our bushes are finally changing color.
11 am: Folded laundry and watched Friends. Never gets old. (Friends ~ not laundry.)
4 pm: Made the first apple pie of the season.
7 pm: Dessert. With ice cream. Vanilla. As all pie should be served.
