witch wine glass should I use . . .

Easy choice . . . this one!

Jake and Kasey bought me this cute wine glass the other day. Very cute, very thoughtful, and a sign that it is the Halloween season!!!!!

I don't get Spring Fever, but I do get Fall Fever - I want to be home decorating and working in the yard. I want to get up early and sit outside in the cool morning with a hot cup of coffee -I want to sew scary little Halloween dolls . . . I want to jump on a plane to Iowa to visit my family - because this is my favorite time of year to go back there . . . I want to make homemade soup and homemade bread . . . I want to take the whole month of October off from work - just to play. I will just have to be satisfied with doing these things with the time I have. Tonight I am sewing doll bodies, getting out some decorations, and cutting out stars to throw glitter on . . . if there's time.

sadie mae

Is this a sweet face or what? Sadie somehow got out of the back yard Friday night while we were gone . . . not a good thing coming home and discovering that she had gone missing. Thanks to Jake posting that she was missing on facebook - it didn't take us long to find her . . . but she had quite an adventure. She was found not too far from our house by a younger sister of someone Jake used to play basketball with in high school. A friend of Jake's posted that this girl had found a dog and he thought it was a basset hound. Another friend of Jake's had her number. She had a tag on - but it had an old phone number on it. They had taken her to an emergency vet on the other side of town - not because she was hurt . . . but they help locate owners. We picked her up about 1:00 in the morning. She didn't seem too shook up - and has a new purple bandanna that reads - "My friends at Pet ER love me." I can't even think what we would have done had we not found her. We are going to get new tags today!!!!!

love this!

Now this is a tissue box! - I hate drab, pastel tissue boxes. My apologies if they match your bathroom - and you think they are pretty. I believe I have posted about my need for pretty tissue boxes before - when I find one I really like . . . it must be noted.

30 years ago

Yesterday we are celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary. 30 years of laughing, crying, babies, soccer games, baseball games, basketball games . . . more baseball games, birthday parties, teenagers, fighting, making up . . . some years of taking each other for granted - and then trying to fix that . . . some really great times, some really bad times . . . and a lot of just day in and day out living and being a family. If I could go back - I may do some things differently along the way . . . but I would do it all over again.

Seasonal Brew - OwwwOOOOOO

The perfect brew for this time of year . . . I am already anticipating Halloween! Great label - great taste!

While looking for werewolf quotes . . . and finding this one - I am going to have to see if I can find the movie Monster Squad. I remember watching it when the boys were young - I think I have only seen it once but want to watch it again. I remember it being entertaining way back then - will have to see if that had to do with the age of my kids.
