Hello Fall!

I love fall its one of my favorite time of the year!  I love this season for many reasons but just a few are the holidays are just around the corner,  jeans and  turtle neck weather, HS football Fridays, College Game Day Saturday, sitting by a campfire on a cool fall night, and well can't forget the candy corn!! ;) lol  Then there is Halloween and getting ready for Oct. 31st!  I was not a huge fan of dressing up in my teenage years but now that I'm a Mom I love getting ready for Halloween!  This year Lilly wants to be Thumbelina from Barbie series so I ordered her costume online.  Her costume just arrived the other day and she was so excited that I couldn't get it out of the box fast enough!  Now, the chore will be keeping her out of the costume for the next 30 days!   

With the start of fall comes a lot of bad things.... sinus infection hit me this week!  Yuck!  Luckily, I caught it before it really knocked me out!  Today, I'm on day 4 of the zpac and feeling much better than I was earlier this week.  Now, that I can focus a little more I will catch up on some blogging posts I had planned for earlier this week.  

Last weekend, we went to Columbus to visit my sister and Saturday we went to the Worthington Market Day.  Market Day is an open market for crafter's to showcase and sell there work and then there is the open food market where you can buy fresh produce.  This is one thing I miss about living so close to a downtown area.  When we lived in Cleveland we went to the West Side Market every weekend.  We lived so close to the market and we would buy all of our produce and meats that market and grab a little bite to eat at one of the little restaurants nearby.  Some days, I really miss living so close to downtown life vs. my life in suburbia now.  The things I give up to live in neighborhood so my daughter can grow up with a yard and lots of neighborhood kids.  It's all worth it but I do love downtown/city life! ;)

The reason for this picture of the tie dye shirts is because my husband  ♥'s tie dye!  
Yes, he hasn't grown up yet and thinks he is still roaming a college campus.  
So I took this picture for him and also to see if he wanted a shirt.  Much to my 
surprise he denied the offer?  WOW- same guy who keeps telling me he wants 
tie dye bed sheets!  LOL - and now that will never happen in my life time! ;)  

My two purchases I made at the market were - 1) a princess super hero cape - because every girl needs a princess cape right?  see pictures below.  2)  Indian corn - because it was so cheap vs. what I've seen at the stores just couldn't pass up the deal for my home decor!  

Super Princesses - Every girl needs a princess cape right?  
Yeah, I got suckered into buying one .... But seeing her face light up was Priceless! 

The two of them looped this circle at least for a mile .... can you say Nap time! lol 

What do you like best about fall?

    Fall is one of my favorite seasons! It's such a welcomed season after the HOT summer we just had! Don't get me wrong ... after the long cold winters I'm ready for the HOT sun but my August I'm ready for the warm fall days!

  2. I wish there were markets like that around here! But I'm just happy for the cooler, crisp air!


I love comments they make me smile! Thanks for stopping by and spending some time with me!
