20 Things I love about fall!

10 Sep

Boy am I in the MOOD for fall this year! I am feeling so nesty and fall twitter~pated that I can not control myself from starting early!  Here are my 20 favorite things about fall…

1.   Pumpkins! Nothing says fall like pumpkins and I am patiently waiting for my grocery store to get them in so I can start on my faux pumpkin patch in the front yard!

2.   My favorite fall simmer: Orange slices, whole cloves and cinnamon sticks covered in water and simmered on low on the stove. The kids LOVE coming home to this.

3.   Stews and soups bubbling on the stove or in the crockpot.

4.   The winds coming up from the gorge and blowing through our backyard trees.

5.   Dahlias! Dahlias! Dahlias! The local Dahlia farm is overflowing with Dahlias in every possible color and size you can imagine. I love taking the kids to cut Dahlias!

6.   Its time turn fire up the fireplace.

7.   Fall decorating…need I say more?

8.   Pulling out the fall decorating bins and pulling out last years end of season fall clearance deals!

9.   Kids are still on an an enthusiastic beginning of school year high!

10.  The leaves begin to change colors.

11.  Flannel sheets.

12.  Wearing boots!

13.  Candles burning.

14.  Reading a book to the sound of rain outside.

15.  Peets eggnog lattes! (Go try one ASAP!)

16.  Sporting my bright red peacoat.

17.  Enjoying a nice bottle of wine with friends.

18.  The excitement in my kids as Halloween approaches.

19.  Tis the season to be THANKFUL!

20.  Having a beautiful life and home is more about your attitude and state of mind than your state of perfection.

Hello AGAIN world!

9 Aug

So most of you know I had this goofy blog going for a bit called 6packaday. I was really enjoying being expressive over the internet until one day my email got hacked. Attached to my email was all of my personal information (address, phone numbers, birthday, etc.) and so was my previous blog. In a moment of paranoid panic I deleted everything. I wasn’t sure what the heck was going on but I knew that all of my personal information was compromised and I didn’t want to take any chances with my internet privacy. In the end I had come to find out it was just hackers getting into my email address to send all of my contacts a link to buy Viagra over the internet.

CRAP.

It was too late. I didn’t even get a chance to save my short stories but I am back…AGAIN. Same name just spelled a little differently because WordPress does not allow you to reuse blog names in order to keep from other people writing as the original author. I can dig it…makes sense.

So I am back at it again. I am changing it up a little bit this time around…maybe going to try out having less of a potty mouth and write about some more things besides just my kids. Maybe porn? Just kidding. I don’t know! We will see where it takes me. Thanks for reading and I hope to make you inspired, LAUGH OUT LOUD or roll your eyes.

Sincerely,

The queen of the six pack:)
