around our neck of the woods

We’ve been a little busy around these parts lately, hence the lack of attention to the blog. We’re just getting all the last minute things done before this little munchkin arrives (which I pray is soon)!  Brian put together our car seat and stroller the other night (thanks in-laws!):


the first signs of fall appeared in our front yard:


so I baked some of my mom’s famous pumpkin bread to celebrate the changing colors and cooler weather:


we hung up bookshelves in the baby’s room and made some homemade pizza dough:


wore some awesome Saturday work day outfits:


worked on some projects and I wore one attractive mask:


painted, painted, painted, and tried out our new grill:


and b grilled one delicious meal:


Up next: photos of our new place. It’s slowwwwwly becoming less and less of a cluttered mess and more and more of a home.

    Love's B's face as he's putting together baby stuff. Just tell him nothings worse than putting together 100+ piece Barbie houses, Barbie vans, etc…haha, so he's getting good practice. So glad B could get a new "toy" as well…gotta love his grilling!
