oh..hello monday

oh…hello monday!

Yes…that is me…..gorging myself on an apple…..just like in the garden of Eden…….and like Eve….i broke the rules…..and ate an apple.

well….so did my kids.

darn those rules…..

this is our back yard…..i bet you didn’t know that we had an apple orchard..did you?

I’m just kidding……..

we actually drove about 35 minutes north of my home to apple orchard country…..home to more that 15 apple orchards.

There were a bunch that are huge…..and to me feel like tourist traps…..but i did my homework…and found a darling mom and pop place about 10 minutes off the beaten track.

It cost a bit more for a bushel but it was so nice to have the orchard to ourselves….

there were only 2 other families picking as well……which made it so nice.

we broke another rule here.
no. climbing. trees.
but my rule was……..you can climb a tree in order for mom to get a picture….just don’t fall out….because if you fall out…then i will deny that i let you climb the tree.
{seriously…what am i teaching these kids…..eeek}

I don’t know about you….but Autumn is my element…..and i like the word autumn…..so much better than fall….
but that’s just me i guess.
autumn
fall
autumn
I {heart} layers…i {heart} boots….i {heart} crisp temperatures.

You are probably wondering where the oldest child is…...oh…and possibly the husband?
Yup…they decided to forgo the apple picking adventure and go to a golf tournament….naughty boys.

I also forgot to tell you about my date night on Saturday…..yes…date night.

We went into the city to see U2 {the band}……they played a sold out show at Soldier field……it was incredible. I won’t lie….i’m not the biggest U2 fan….but Bryan is….and seeing them live was so much fun…even though the beer was so expensive.

Do you remember the first concert you ever went to? I do.

It was Madonna……her ‘like a virgin’ tour…….and i was about 10 or 11.

My dad worked security on the side at Dodger stadium in L.A……..so whenever there was a cool concert..he would take me and a friend.

I think i was the popular girl in 5th grade.

sheesh.

A 5th grader and her friends at a tour called ‘like a virgin’.

xo

oh…..just an fyi…..i sent out the invites for my “open house” on October 3rd…..so if you didn’t get it or would like to be invited to come shopping……just email me.

I’m thinking of having Denisa {the famous french crepe lady} coming to set up as well.
