On the chalkboard: I have such issues with Fall chalkboards. I just really want to change it all the time like during Christmas but all my ideas are Halloween related. It's a real problem, I know. I saw this quote from Anne of Green Gables and it just fit the bill if you know what I mean.
Reading: Or more likely... What am I not reading. Normally I'm a one book at a time kind of gal. But unfortunately here I have gotten sucked in and Outlander and Brittany are to blame. I was happily enjoying Mrs. Kennedy and Me because well, history and the Kennedy's and I am kind of a sucker for those topics. And then I heard about Outlander and the new Starz show and so I bought the first book to test the waters. Got hooked. Loved the show. Ordered the next six books. While waiting for that amazing package to arrive I couldn't exactly go back to Kennedy because I was in 18th century Scotland and perfectly happy there. So I figured I could start Marked because Tabitha liked it and I tend to agree with her about most things. But before long my six books arrived and with it all sense of propriety abandoned me. Back to Jamie and Claire I went. I downed the second book in a matter of days, which if you've read it, you'll understand why. Voyager is the third in the series. I will eventually finish what I have started. I will. But first things first. 
Watching with Matt: Man. Of. Steel. This guy? He is quite easy on the eyes. It makes me feel old when I remember that he once played young Albert Mondego...

Eating: Chips chips. No good can come of this. 
Drinking: Tea. All the tea. We are going through about a gallon a day. Oh yes. We have a problem. 

Planning: On Matt doing another project. The paint around the front door is chipping. And it does nothing to class up the joint. Unfortunately we don't actually have the paint. So we must find the closest match we can. Big things. Big but necessary things.

Thinking about: We have got a little weekend trip planned for late October. And it heads, guess where? New. England. Cape Cod to be exact. What to do and where to eat and what to see, (leaves changing, obviously) all things on my mind.
Watching on the treadmill: I bounce back and forth between The Good Wife season 5 and The Real Housewives of NJ season 2. I know what this season brings Mrs. Florrick and yet I continue on. And NJ? Well it's just mindless fun that's why. 

As I type this: David is as usual furthering his education through YouTube videos. And smiling. Always smiling.



  1. You will NOT regret the RHONJ, I promise. They are legendary lol.

  2. Love that lil trip you have planned! how delightful. also i'm back on the reading train. nothing upsets me more than an unfinished book. just downloaded lena dunham's book bc rave reviews. even my mom will be reading. also that last photo. my heart.

  3. Love your chalkboard! PS have you tried any of the new Lays? I have wanted to try the wassabi ones, but I don't want to buy a whole bag and the whole bag! lol!

  4. So you guys did plan a weekend trip! Yay for getting away and fall foliage in New England! This goes to show it's been awhile since we have been together. Need to catch up!! And I'm still working on Insurgent...I miss having time to read!

  5. I am totally jealous that you have time in your day to read! I have so many books that are collecting dust that I swore I would make time for. Has not happened. And the future isn't bright for them. haha!

  6. I love your chalkboards...and I'm super jealous of that Cape Cod vacay you're planning but can't wait to see all the pics!

    And D, seriously, that crooked smile is the cutest.

  7. You're finally doing your Fall New England trip!!! Yay Olsens! Cape Cod is perfect. Eat lotsa lobsta. Like Julia Roberts in Mystic Pizza. And pictures. Please and thank you.

    Also, I have a feeling we are going to be doing a lot of projects like the chipping door paint very soon. We might just have a real estate agent coming over next week. To help us get ready to list our house... So we can move... Northerly... To a commonwealth... That begins with a P and ends in an Ennsylvania.

  8. Sounds like a great day to me. You are making me so curious about Jamie and Claire. I really will have to look into them after I am done with Jace and Clary. Which I find hilarious for reasons of almost twin-ness. haha. The last book in the Marked serious comes out this month. Yikes and Finally. At least once you do get into it you won't have to wait forever for all the books like I did. :)

  9. I watched a preview for whatever is going on with the Outlander show, and I could not understand one word that man said. I was like well shoot, and that is why I read. Not that I've read the series, but it has been on my to do list for a while.


I love hearing from you. Honest I do. You won't find my response to you here, but in your inbox. F.Y.I.
