Weekend Scenes -- Sweet Berry Farms Pumpkin Patch

Besides celebrating B's birthday, we hit the pumpkin patch on Saturday. It was about an hour drive north west of Austin. It was called Sweet Berry Farms. We had such a good time. B said as we were walking up, this is practice for next year. And really, it was a lot of fun seeing all the kids and their parents and watching moms & dads take pictures. EVERYBODY had their big nice cameras out snapping pictures so I didn't feel bad when it was just me & B with our big camera.


It was overcast and not toooo humid. I ended up putting boots on which I am so glad I did. They had a large area of flowers that you could walk through and pick as much as you wanted for $3. It was a lot of fun and made for great pictures. I can for sure say that it made me SO much more excited for our little boo to get here and dress him up and take him to the patch. He still doesn't have a name by the way. I'm not ready to commit. HA!


We are getting a "cold front" tomorrow and will have a high in the mid-70s and the morning will be in the 50s. I guess I'll take what I can get right? I saw Denver got SNOW this morning. I could only dream of those temperatures for mid October.









How was your weekend? I feel like this past weekend and next week are the weekends to grab your pumpkins. Anyone dressing up for Halloween? We do not get trick or treaters here in the apartment which is a total BUMMER to me because it's my favorite part of the holiday....minus eating my weight in Reese's.


I hope everyone has had a great start to their week. I of course am already looking forward to the weekend. What did you do this past weekend? What's on your Fall bucket list?

Five on Friday

Welllllll the week got ahead of me. Oops!

[1]
I picked up a few things from the Loft 50% off sale, and they came in this week. I have been so hesitant with buying actual clothes because I know I'm only getting bigger as the days weeks go on & this baby is growing. I hope to get these styled sometime soon...when the temperatures drop. They are still having a sale...at 40% off (Code: FALLFEST) so run & go check it out.

Today is B's birthday!! We celebrated with lunch out today at Kebabalicious (highly recommend!) and tonight I think we are going to one of his fave breweries that also has a food truck. What the birthday boy wants, he gets!

I have been battling a cold since Monday...it started as the wimpiest cough and could NOT get decongested....well this morning all hell broke loose (literally) and everything finally started breaking up and my cough was more successful. Any other tips for this pregnant momma? I am limited to what I can take.

I have been using a new (to me) Laura Mercier foundation. I am in love. It covers so well. I apply it with a damp beauty blender. I am currently wearing shade 1N2-Vanilla...but I could probably go up one shade. Oh well...more room for bronzer.

[5]
I don't have a #5 this week but I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! We are going to check out a pumpkin patch tomorrow so I'll have pictures from that next week!

Five on Friday...I missed you!

I'm really starting back into blogging after my hiatus with a bang. This is my third post this week. I am impressed with myself. Hopefully I can keep the momentum going. TGIF!!

{ 1 }
Have any of y'all picked up on the loafer trend? I got these from Target and am wearing them today. Talk about COMFORTABLE! Everybody was raving over the hot pink ones that have bows...but I just can't get on board.

Part of my hiatus you can read about here....I'll give you a little big hint.

If you love killer, way affordable, can't live without lip liner, then you better get this. Perfect for Fall...and will make those lips look KILLER. Promise. I think it actually makes mine look a bit bigger...you know without spending $600 for injections. I am also highlighting some of my favorite glosses to pair with it here.

In regards to item #2...I can't tell y'all how freaked out I got over just asking momma friends about bottles. HOLY COW. I know every baby is different but wow. There were several brands that stuck out so we will register for those this weekend. And yes, I DO plan on breastfeeding, but I like to have all my bases covered should it not work out.

What are y'alls' thoughts on SNS Dip nails vs gel nails? I got the dip last Saturday and part of one nail chipped at the corner. Talk about irritated. Don't get me wrong, my nail lady is GREAT. I just don't think my nails hold the dip very well. Let me know what you think & your experiences.

I hope y'all have a FABULOUS weekend!! It feels good to be back. Be sure to leave some love.

August 2017: Montana/Glacier National Park Vacation

I can't even begin to describe my love for Montana. This summer was my second trip, and it was nothing short of fabulous. B's parent's flew in from NC & all met up with the majority of the Montana crew (aunts, uncles & cousins). His mom is originally from Great Falls. We started our trip with a stay in Glacier National Park. Side note: I have THE best aunt/uncle "in laws." They spoil us rotten with AMAZING food, the best hosting, & laughs for days. We love you Jill, Kari, Bob, & Randy!!

I have heard a lot of people say, "Montana? Why are you taking a vacation to Montana?" Ummmm, have you been there?! This was my first time in Glacier, and it was the most amazing experience. As I have gotten older, I have come to really admire & be in total awe of what awesomeness we have right here in our own "backyard." Sure, you can travel to Europe or white sandy beaches, but nothing compares to seeing huge mountains rise up out of nowhere, see wildlife that you wouldn't normally see, and experience people/ways of life right here in our very own US of A. Get out there, y'all!! It's amazing & I can't preach it enough. You can't find a love for something you've never experienced for yourself. I'll step off my national park soap box now. HEHE! I'll let the pictures do the talking.

Entering East Glacier.

Lake Mary (east side of Glacier)



I loved this field of flowers. They matched my shirt perfectly.




'Indian Paintbrush'

Can you spot the billy goats?

This guy was too cute. He was totally posing.

Mountain goats!!

I am dying to go back. A week after, on the same trail where most of these pictures were taken, "The Highline Trail," a guy ran right into a grizzly in the narrowest part of the trail. He had to jump down about 5-6ft down off the side and hide. It was INSANE. The grizzlies were pretty rampant so some trails were closed due to bear activity. We did not see any (much to my dismay -- I REALLY wanted to get one on camera from a safe distance), but we were armed with our bear spray. 

Have you been to Glacier? What trails have you done? You really need a week in the park to really get your fill and get some miles on those hiking shoes.
