A warm hello...

Well, hello there friends! Hope your day is shaping up to be a good one! Doug had two WHOLE days off in a row so to me it seems like he has been home for ages (for those of you just tuning in...Doug has been working his bum off...overnight, for days and days in a row and often we would find out about his daY off the morning he was too have it)! We took advantage of his time off and got lots done...took Moses to the park (top priority per Moses), upgraded Moses' room from baby to bigger boy, cleaned out Moses clothes and sadly removed the 80% or so that no longer fit him...then came to the realization that even if we have another boy...the seasons and the sizes most likely won't match up for hand me downs, cleaned up the yard and explored our city just a little.
He is going through a pocket phase at the moment. All things go in his pockets...or "pock" as he calls them. Yesterday I removed no less than 25 rocks from his pockets. We also asked him twice today if he wanted a little brother or sister and both time he said sister. :)

And remember the bedroom redo I was working on forever ago...well it has reached a semi-done phase...cause to me a room is never "done".
Here is a before...blech.
And another before...
And here we are now...warm and cozy...
Inviting, too! We plan on adding more white frames above the bed since we will soon have another sweet face to photograph.
I really love it!
And here is today's treat...inspired by the offering of Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte that I saw in the window today(but did not have...yet...I am sure it is in my near future). Fall is here! My next favorite Starbucks seasonal tradition is when you get your order in the holiday red to go cups!! :) Any who...above are the yummy and fabulously wonderful from the oven snickerdoodles. Perfect. :)
Here's the recipe(you can click to enlarge). You should go make some. :)

And a p.s. for all of you who may be concerned with my caffeine consumption...I am very good and limit myself to one caffeinated beverage per day...if any...mama's got cravings you know. :)
Pin It!

Hello-
Your days off with your hubby sound much like mine. When my hubby works, it's overnight as well and we look forward to seeing him after his long absence.

Your room re-do is lovely-very calm and serene-thanks for the recipe. I tried the choco chip one you posted a while back and it was yummy. I'll have to give this a try too.

I love FALL and am so glad that Summer is coming to an end!! Just today, I got out all of my fall decorations.

I meant to comment earlier, but I am a regular reader of your blog and am linked to your site.

We're expecting our first baby in November, so all those pregnancy issues you were talking about, I'm finally able to relate to! Once the first trimester is over, things are just so much better!!

I love the bedroom! Ours looks the same since the day we moved it. Blah green 70's color on the wall. We have the paint, just no time to do it. I can't wait for the pumpkin frapps, I love those! I love the pics of Moses posing...Blue Steel! Zoolander is one of our favorite movies!

It looks like you had a fun couple of days. The kids and I love when my husband gets a few days off in a row. Last time we went to the zoo.

My son insisted that he was going to have a sister when I was pregnant. He was 2 1/2 at the time. We chose not to find out until she was born. We kept telling him it may be a boy, so he wouldn't get his hopes up for a girl. He kept insisting though that it was a sister. He was right.

Love the bedroom re-do. I'min the process of just deciding on things for mine that OH SO needs it! You did a great job & I love the jars on the wall.

I always drank some caffiene too - sweet tea was the only thing I could keep down!

Just so you know...you may still have a chance of having those clothes as hand me downs if you have a boy. My girls are 19 mos apart, one born in March and the other in August. My oldest is normal height and skinny minnie, and my youngest is tall and chunky so for sizes 2t and 3t they were wearing the same sizes in most things. It could happen.
