"punkin" time!

last night we had my best friend and her husband over to hang out and carve pumpkins. it was fun and a lot easier than i'd remembered! here are the results:

(in order L to R: mine, C&R's collaboration, and p's)

here's a close-up of mine:

water fell

it's taken a few days but here are the pics from our visit to desoto falls this past sunday.

the day was GORGEOUS! crisp fall mountain air and warm sunshine make the heart smile... and being with my HUBBY makes me smile - isn't he just the cutest?!
i was worried that my thrifted oxfords would be too slick to climb around on the rocks and such safely (and they were) but there was a great trail along the top of the lookout so i got to enjoy the view too!
my grandma had a surgery today so she can begin dialysis immediately. i'm really going to try to get back into blogging but lately i've been in a stage where being a part of my day and not just reporting on it seems like the thing to do.

sunday funday (kinda)

sunday snugglies with the puppies are the BEST!

now we're off to brunch and then to north alabama to see my grandma... it's a gorgeous day and the leaves will be changing in the mountains and i'm very excited! unfortunately, my grandma is very very sick and that's the main reason we are going. i hope our visit can cheer her up.

photos soon!

random musings after red wine consumption

1- miss hathaway on the beverly hillbillies was way ahead of her time. that fur and those glasses?!

(yes, i took a photo of my tv with my phone... sorry for the blur)

um, hello mk olsen! (or maybe this is ashley... i'm confused. did i mention the red wine?!)

2- i colored my hair and cut bangs.

these days i wanna look like carey mulligan in "an education"

(this movie's going to be amaaing - i can't wait to see it!)

now, grow hair! grow! (and maybe i need to cut my bangs shorter as it grows longer... nes pas?)

3- i bought 3 amazing items at the thrift today: a(nother) faux fur, a sequined wiggle dress, and a totally cute 50's inspired dress that i am currently in l.o.v.e. with! i may just wear it while i paint the house tomorrow!

4- i lusted over these shoes for a week and tried to get p to buy them for me - and he almost did, as a belated wedding present... but i got online today and they were sold out in my size. i am heartbroken and pitiful in the worst way now. even after p kissed me on the head and told me i was "so pretty i didn't need shoes" (suck up.) i still grieve. they are still full price at victoria's secret... i'll keep and eye out.
psst: i got him this as my wedding present to him/us

it's H...U...G...E... and ohsobright and wonderful! now i just have to pay a butt load to have it professionally framed! i want to hang it in our entryway so that everytime we come home or leave home we are reminded of our wedding vows and our love... sweet :)
