Looking around the house...
Picked up and so quiet with my kiddos back in school
Dogs cozy and napping
A box of Hostess Cupcakes are calling to me : )

From the camera...
My Daughter was in Austin for her Robotics Competition, We got to watch it live online. She updated us with texts daily.

I Love the photo below because my daughter was "speaking her mind" to the refs  lol
I asked her about it and she told me
 "Something had to be said but nobody wanted to say it, So I did."
 I like it because she will always sick up for other kids but for herself she  is usually quiet and lets most things go, she is learning to be more vocal in that sense, and I am proud of her for it.

We attended the Harry Potter midnight Release party at Barns and Noble. So Fun! I Loved all the events but especially the costume contest.  Here are a few photos of my favorites...



On my prayer list...
My usual family Prayers 
& Prayers for some my online buddies


  1. I LOVE it!! You such a Gal after my own heart. Between loving Fall and trying to control yourself not going there - to having a daughter that has done robotics (I have an almost 5th grader that was into it) - and finally to your Harry Potter love!

    I've been pinning a few Fall things on pinterest and I have picked up one Fall magazine to gaze over...but that's as far as I've let it go for now. But soon my Friend we can fully embrace it! Lol

    Blessings. xoxo

  2. Yes hugs to you Carrie my fall loving sister!!! : )
    I have been pinning tons of fall items-I cant help myself lol I will look for you on pinterest, hope you are having a great week!
