The woman we buy Niva’s dog food from decorated her front yard for fall and it’s gorgeous. I got her permission to share some pictures here in case you need any decorating inspiration!
It’s pretty, isn’t it? She has such a classy style of decorating! I wish I was half as talented in that department, haha. I tend throw some mums on our front porch, put a wreath on the door, hang a new garden flag, and call it a day as far as outdoor decorations are concerned 😂
Okay, funny things. Jimmy sent me a meme the other night and I was truly keeled over laughing for a good five minutes. It’s probably not that funny, but it made me happy so I have to share it here.
If you have a cat, do you find this to be true? We make a certain sound and Malcolm comes running right away. He also sometimes beats Niva to the door when guests come over–definitely the least shy cat I’ve ever met!
Speaking of funny things, Sadie thought bubbles were very amusing over the weekend. Earlier in the summer Jimmy bought her this bubble gun that shoots a ton of bubbles at once and they love playing with that thing. And by playing with it, I mean attacking me with bubbles whenever possible 😜
Also funny (but maybe more on the creepy side) is the bunny pancake Sadie and I made together. We were looking at a kids’ cookbook one morning and decided to make the rabbit pancake we saw on the pages.
It definitely didn’t look as pretty as the cookbook’s version, but Sadie was happy with it and ate the whiskers, one ear, and toppings (which is a lot for her 😂).
Last but not least, let’s talk about technology. It’s kind of funny to me when people think I’m “techy” because it often feels like nothing could be further from the truth. Yes, I write a blog on the internet, but it’s simple. I promise! I enjoy the writing aspect of it, not the tech side of it.
I last upgraded my phone just before Sadie was born and it was definitely time for a new one. The battery was dying quickly and a lot of things were glitching. Jimmy pushed me to upgrade to the newest iPhone and ughhhhhh. How ungrateful does that sound 🙈 I love the camera, but it has been such a process to learn the new phone and transfer things over and blah blah blah.
I told Jimmy that my perfect phone would have four features:
- The ability to make phone calls
- The ability to text
- A nice camera
Aaaaand that’s it! I know phones are easily customized now (and I do have most of my notifications turned off and have as few apps as possible), but I still feel too… connected? Overstimulated? Ever since I read How to Break Up With Your Phone I not only use my phone differently, but think about it in a different way, too. To me, it’s a tool, not an escape. Am I perfect at using it as a tool and not a distraction? No. But I’m doing my best!
