It has already been a month since my last life lately post. I’m not sure where the time has gone! September was a good month. It was filled to the brim with work, pet sitting, and all sorts of random fun.
My mother-in-law had a birthday at the beginning of the month, so we went out to eat with her to celebrate.
She is such a loving, kind, and caring person. I can’t even describe how glad I am that she is my mother-in-law and that she raised my husband to be the man that he is today.
I started getting a little more focused on mine and Jimmy’s food budget in September, too. Instead of buying packaged snacks for our lunches, I’ve been making homemade snack bars. I was thinking about posting on how we try to save money on groceries and meals, but I’m not sure if anyone would be interested, haha.
I love coloring, and I bought an adult coloring book over the summer. I totally got my sister-in-law into it, and she got my mother-in-law into it, too. So, we had a girls’ night of coloring and baking caramel apple pie cookies, which were superb.
I’ve been working on a little art project. I had the above picture frame filled with “real life” dog pictures, mostly of Lola, Brandy, and Moses. I thought it would be fun to draw pictures of some of my favorite dog breeds and put them in the picture frame. Poor Jimmy. He came home from work one day and was cracking up. It makes me smile every time I see it. I just need to finish the last three pictures!
I don’t know what it is about fall–maybe the whole back to school thing–but I have been getting the urge to organize, clean, and decorate. I’m definitely okay with that ;).
Jimmy and I also went to our town’s Oktoberfest celebration, which was a blast and just so cute. We listened to live music, ate cotton candy, and shopped around at all the vendor tables. We were supposed to go to a corn maze with our church this weekend, but it was cancelled because Pittsburgh is expected to have blustery and rainy weather. Yikes!
Alright, I better get going. Hope everyone has a nice day!
