Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving my loves! 
I hope you have a truly wonderful day...
{ Via }

What are you thankful for this year?
As for me, I am THANKFUL for...

1. The Husband actually being home vs deployed in a combat zone, foreign country or anywhere other than with me.
2. The lil' bumps & kicks Baby Fry throws my way every day & the easy pregnancy I've been blessed with so far.
3. Our crazy Piper Dog who literally makes us laugh everyday. I'm so glad she found her way into our life this time last year. 
4. The magical feeling rekindled inside me every time I feel & smell fall & impending winter. 
5. Family, friends & sweet strangers who remind me that there are still good, kind people out there.

 I really am truly blessed with SO much & it is so crazy wonderful. God is so good!
 Happy Thanksgiving!

PS- Happy Birthday to my lil' brother...
 I'm thankful for you too, Jughead!

I like this green pair too... oh so cute!

Target 2 Day Sale.

You've probably already seen a few of these but I can't help but share. 
The Target 2 Day Sale commercials make me chuckle every time I see them... 

I especially love the first one where she runs down the towel 
aisle in heels with the parachute for resistance.
Oh my! Tee hee hee.

If you want to check out more shopping tips & strategies
head on over to The 2 Day Sale Command Center- hilarious!

Happy Weekend.

Happy weekend, lovebugs!

What do you have planned for this weekend?
The Husband & I have an Army function to attend tonight.
 He has to wear his dress blues which he always looks ridiculously handsome in
 & I have to wear a formal dress...  I'm going to attempt to do my hair like this.  (I hope it works out!)
It should be a good night out, sometimes it is fun to get all dressed up & fancy, no?

Other than that relaxing, breakfast out tomorrow at one of my fave spots with the family
& raking up the leaves in the yard will be on the "to do" list for the weekend.


A Crowded Space.

I really dig this print.  It is called "A Crowded Space".
I just think it is really cute... Reminds me of making thumb print artworks as kiddo!

DIY - Acorn Topped Ornaments.

I know it isn't even Thanksgiving yet but you can bet the day 
after Thanksgiving I am decorating our home for Christmas!

 So I figure it is never too early to start making your own Christmas ornaments right? 
That is where these lil' guys come in...
Are they not cute, cute, CUTE!? Posted last winter by the super fabulous Ez of Creature Comforts 
as part of her 18 Days DIY series, I figured I'd share them with you again just in case you missed them last year. 

I think they'd be cute as ornaments, package toppers, part of a wreath, garland or bunting 
or hey they'd be sweet added to place cards too! (you could make each one look like the person sitting at the seat!)

Head on over here for the full tutorial & as always let me know if you try your hand at these lil' guys... 
I'd love to know how it goes for you!

Petite House.

Aren't these cozy home ornaments by Petite House just darling?! 
Oh I just love them! 
Head on over to Petite House to check out more fabulous cozy homes.
I think one or two may just have to be added to our Christmas tree this year.

I'm trying to add a new ornament or two to our stash every year. I guess it is kind of a tradition.
How about you? Any ornament or Christmas tree traditions in your home?

Vintage Mom & Me.

I found it! I knew this photograph was around here somewhere...
I told you we go to Ott's a lot. 

Despite the fact that I am kinda dressed like a boy that is me as a lil' bambino with my oh so stylish mom. 
I mean, check it out- skinny jeans, pumps & a vest! Fashion styles really do come back around, no?

I just love this. I'm thinking it needs to go on our kitchen wall, especially since 
The Husband is always trying to sweet talk me into making him pancakes. 

Plus he used to always & still occasionally does call me darling... 
I heart him lots.

24 Weeks.

I've gotten a few requests for more baby bump photographs 
& since I am to please (well most of the time) here you go... 

Please ignore the fact that I look really tired, I dunno what that is about!? 
Maybe the fact that I get up every night, multiple times to go potty? (lol)
16 weeks to go, we are SO excited to meet our lil' baby girl!


Mums with Mom.

A few weeks ago my Mom & I made an impromptu stop at a local nursery & greenhouse known as Ott's
Every year they do a spectacular Mountain of Mums to celebrate fall & we try to visit if we can. 

Typically it happens just on a whim while we are driving by in the area 
& go "oh, we should go to Ott's!" Thank goodness I almost always carry my camera with me.

Here are a few shots I snapped just before the sun set...
Oh & we didn't intend on wearing slightly matching outfits, I swear. It just happened that way... which is funny!
It was a great ending to our day. Now I'm off to find a vintage photo of me 
& my mom at Ott's when I was about a year or so old... 
I'd love to show it to you if I can find it!

Happy weekend my dears! 
{ Photo Credit - unknown }

I hope you have some lovely & good things in store for yourself this weekend.
I'm sorry I haven't been posting too much lately, I've been very busy with various Baby Fry things. 
Plus I've been fighting off a cold & desperately trying to coordinate 
repairs to our home from the super hail storm back in June...

But enough about me, what are you up to this weekend?
Whatever it is I hope you enjoy it! See you Monday!
