How is it October already? I guess when you are busy that time FLIES! September had a lot on the calendar, but I think there is more for October~ at least weekends! The youth group at our church runs a concession stand at a local college football stadium and I am in charge of this fundraiser. We have 3 games this month, with the biggest one of the season being tomorrow. It's not hard work, but it's SUPER busy and a long day standing on cement. Sunday I am taking the kiddos to the pumpkin patch with friends. The forecast is wonderful (although we have some nights in the upper 30s...burr!) so it will be a nice day to go.

We should have a fully functioning kitchen sometime this weekend. Our counter tops arrived at Menards yesterday. DH picked them up and he and my BIL got some of the prep work done last night. They've got some shimming and gluing to do and of course the plumbing. It is going to be SOOO nice to have a sink and running water in the kitchen. My people are getting TIRED of microwave meals and paper plates. We still have little things to do to finish off the kitchen (trim, light fixture, order stained glass for the window!), but a good portion of it will be done. We have decided to replace the laminate in the living room with hardwood. We just need to find some hardwood we like and try to carve out time to do it. Our house is going to be so awesome when everything is done. Now if I could just find some artwork I like!!!

My blog anniversary is in 4 days...I'll probably forget, but it's really not that big of a deal. Even though I am inconsistent and don't really blog about anything significant (at times) I like having my own blog.

Have a great weekend and don't forget about the Scentsy giveaway in the previous post. I will try to post my reality wrap before Amazing Race airs on Sunday night!

  1. Can't wait to see the totally finished kitchen! I'm so jealous. I'd like to give my house a once-over, or at least parts of it.

    I also can NOT believe it's October. I swear Christmas was last week. Scary part is, that also kinda means that Christmas is NEXT week! Aaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!!

  2. Even though it doesn't feel like it, I think you finished that kitchen in record time! Can't wait to see the counters and sink completed. :)

    Happy Anniversary!
