Summer is over.   The leaves are falling (however ours still seem to be clinging to the branches, so you know we'll end up raking in the snow!)  Halloween is almost here - and then it can leave because I hate candy corn.

Here's what else I've been up to...

Making our home clean again.  For some reason, the summer always gives way to doing things outside instead of cleaning inside.  We had piles of towels and swim bag items living in our dining room all summer.  Why pack them away when they'll just be used again in another day?  Operation:  Keep Surfaces Clean is in full effect.

I hate the pick-up line at the girls' schools.  People, pull up.  Don't leave your car - move 10 feet and use the parking lot.  You're not special - you are literally like every other person here picking up a child.

Wednesday has become my favorite day on Facebook, because of Matt Bellassai and Whine About It.  If you haven't seen any of his videos, stop what you're doing and go watch them!  Or at least finish reading up here and THEN go watch them!

I also really dislike all the "new" fall TV this year.  The cheese factor of these shows is just too intense.  And I really love cheese.  I mean, I watch The Real Housewives and Below Deck for Christ's Sake!

Over the summer, Nate and I had a few couple's counseling sessions.  I share this only because I feel that people who do go to, and need counseling, should definitely get it.  Our lives and marriage was far from perfect, and we're still not in any position to write a book on the subject, but in my honest I'm hoping to remove some stigma.

I am experiencing (very slight) Mom Guilt over not volunteering for any of Liv's class parties this year.  I mean, I "stay home" - isn't this what I should be doing?  But then I think of how loud and crazy a 25-minute lunch can be among a few of them in the lunch room.  I'm out.

Pumpkin Spice Latte.  Just because I feel every is doing it.
Wait, I hate coffee.  Where's the Diet Coke?

I've also been thinking I need to post a few new tutorials here.  Crafts?  Food?  Drinks - obviously!  Stay tuned for more fun this fall friends!

Oh, and few cute photos from our summer, just because, why not?
