Truth…  Monday posts have been so challenging to write lately.


The truth…I’m spent by the time Sara goes to bed and I all I want to do is lay on the couch and fall asleep.

We’ve been having some amazing weather here… no joke it’s been a dream.  It’s been consistently in the mid to upper 70’s with plenty of sunny skies!  The leaves are starting to fall and turn colors.  It’s freaking amazing!

In addition to the amazing weather we are having I had a wonderful run this weekend too!



Funny that my bump looks like a fannie pack! Right?!?!

We spent the weekend playing and jumping around…

A couple more things on my mind these days….

I can’t believe that October is this week.  Where is the time going?  If this weather sticks around for awhile longer will all continue to be very happy!

I’m celebrating my birthday on Friday and in our house we tend to make celebrations a week-long.  For very good reason this year too… Sara has promised that this week will be a “whine” and “sass” free.  Now that is a birthday present I will gladly take.

Truth… I enjoy my birthday week or month because of all of the emails and coupons I get in the mail.  Lots of fun shopping and free dinners this month which is probably a testament to the number of random emails and groups that I have signed up for over the years!  Does anyone else do that?

Truth… we are starting to look at minivans… EEK… I swear I would never own one of those, but it seems that it may be the most practical car to own now that Sara is older and we are doing more carpooling once baby #2 comes.  They are just so freaking big and long!!!

Truth… I could eat soup every day and pretty much plan to this week for lunch!  Yesterday I put this in the crockpot added chickpeas.  It was dinner and lunch for the week!

Truth… I’m loving that fall TV is back!  I think I am going to watch Parenthood with a box of tissues every week.  Darn show gets me every time!!

And… that’s all I’ve got… time for me for enjoy the reminder of my Sunday night!

What did you do this weekend?

    My sister just had her 3rd baby and they are now in the market for a minivan! I don’t think she ever thought she’d be a ‘van’ person either but you gotta do what you gotta do. I actually went mini van shipping with them while I was helping her out last week. It’s a real good time 🙂

  5. Glad you liked my lentil soup! Congrats on your pregnancy (I am also pregnant with baby #2!). We just went through this whole mini-van exercise and my husband tried hard to talk me into getting one but I won him over and we got a nice Crossover SUV 😉
