photos from my phone

this is as much fall color as i've seen in the neighborhood so far. it's comin'!

i cannot tell you how much i love our little house. i struggled with it for quite awhile, but now, i just love it...and when i look at other places that might be available (house shopping is so much fun) i always come back to this and just love it more than anything else.

my favorite part of everyday.

schnoogie bear doing his schoolwork. he gets up everymorning, on time, takes his shower & gets right down to business. love him, so much.

i was having a wonderful moment one night, all to myself, with a cup of coffee in my new mug, sitting in my favorite spot on the couch.

the other part of that same moment. all tucked in with my favorite magazine.

a cozy evening.

this is what i wake up to in the mornings. lovely.

i've started playing with instagram, don't have a clue what i'm doing, but it makes me feel all artsy.

see, all artsy.

enjoy your day!!!

calvin & hobbes

see this guy, this is hobbes. he's been around for awhile. like 17 years.

my mom bought him one day when we were shopping together, right after we found out that the baby in my tummy was a boy. jay and i had always known we would name our son 'calvin'.

so hobbes joined us that day and rode around in the baby seat in the shopping cart.

here's calvin's first picture with his hobbes.

and here they are today. too cute.

(i don't know who that goober is behind him.)

hobbes got some cuts last time through the washer and needed some minor surgery. he's been in the waiting room for YEARS. i just picked him up from the doctor's yesterday. he's all healed and lookin' good.

and this is what calvin did with him yesterday while he was doing school...is my boy texting while he's suppose to be doing school!? great.
