Life Lately

I know its been awhile- please accept my apologies. I don't often write about exactly what is going on and sometimes I just kinda "scoot" over the things that are going on. Don't all bloggers? You want to put yourself out there, but most of the time you can't really put yourself out there because sometimes the things you want to say are about people who might happen upon your blog- and then where will you be? Maybe 1 friend down I suppose.

First things first- I am so in love with Blogsy. I was struggling with posting because I fight with my laptop frequently and therefore I am constantly on my iPad. And iPad + blogger = headache. Until I found Blogsy. There are a few other blog apps out there for iPad, but this one got the best reviews.

Where would we be without google? Seriously.

I have to admit I am completely thankful that September is coming to a close. It was a month that had so much going on and created so much stress, that I am just happy to put it all behind us.

A week ago, I left for San Diego for a work function. Every year, we fly out to meet with consultants who work with my office and are in meetings for a few days and they always have such amazing things for us to do planned. Example:

Who doesn't love a cute elephant butt?
We had dinner at the San Diego Zoo- that was closed down, just for our group. If you don't know anything else about me- just know that I LIVE for animals. I would seriously be Dr. Doolittle if I could. Remember when I said I was campaigning for goats? Ya, that is still happening. The next day we had an obstacle course, full of running through a bounce house {have you seriously tried that now that you are a grown up? Its no joke when you get stuck in a crack and you literally cannot.get.out} rowing outrigger, playing dodgeball {I really, really hate games with flying balls. I know, I know...that could go so many ways} amongst other things. It was a good time. Flew home on the red-eye Saturday night and arrived home only to repack my suitcase and head to Florida. And no, it wasn't for an amazing vacation. Stay with me and I will tell you exactly why.
Until next time- I leave you with this.
Fall makes me horribly happy. And who can resist a tiny hedgehog?

I just know Fall is on the way...

Hello cupcakes! Today I am linking up with Becky from MrstoMama about the wonderful thing that is Fall!

If you are new to my piece of the internet- Hi! Pardon my look- it soon will be changing. Kick up your feet and stay awhile!

1. Tell us what you are looking forward to this fall?
     There is something I must confess. Fall, Autumn, the season after Summer is one of my 2 favorite times every year. Okay that is a lie. Its one of three. {The other 2 are Spring and Christmas. Yes, Christmas IS in its own category.} In fact, I have been burning my Macintosh Yankee Candle for a few weeks now...yep, you caught me. I walked into Yankee a month ago (sign up for their coupons- they are so worth it!) and beelined straight for the Fall Section. Some of my fav's?
Summer in the Carolinas has been extremely humid and hot- more than normal. Add in the fact that we didn't have much of a winter last year- which I truly believe did not kill the mosquitoes. So, they quadrupled in qauntity and came back with a vengeance this year. I am ready to bid adieu to the entirety of summer. Put the cover on the grill and winterize our house.

2. Show us your fall style.
Insert scarves, leggings, tights, jeans, boots, sweaters and anything that screams cozy.
And something I am looking to add to my brood? The grayish beauties in the right hand bottom corner from MrstoMama's style... Someone please help me find them.  I need them.

3. Tell us your favorite things to do in the fall. If you have children, activities to do with the kids?
No kids for this lady right now, but I love fall activities just the same. Pumpkin patch, decorating for fall, hay name it- I'm game. 

4. Show us your favorite fall beverage.
Apple Cider
I seriously am in love with Apple Cider. We went to Vermont this past February for the first time and let me just say- Cider Mills have a special place in my heart.

5. Tell us, how you will be participating in halloween this year. Plans? Costume ideas?  
Hmmm...Halloween is fairly boring for me every year. Again- no kids so maybe the poor puppies will get dressed up. Or maybe not. Since I'm an 8-5er Hallow's Eve fell on a weekday so we dressed up..I, was the tooth fairy. I work in the tooth industry so naturally this made sense. Although when I asked my boss what I was ... "Uh- some kind of fairy?" Umm- okay. I just happen to have 23 tiny teeth printouts all over me. But yes, some kind of fairy. 

Thats it for now my sweets! I look forward to hopping around and adding to my list of blog fav's!
