Life is just really really good right now. Better than it has been in a while, actually. I was just thinking today how much things have changed in the past month. I've gone from feeling constantly stressed and frazzled to being able to relax and enjoying life so much more. I think therapy and my six months to a better me project is working. :)

It's been a really fun week around here. I discovered the awesome music and movement class at the library, I had a really fun lunch with friends, Shawn and I finally got to see The Help on Friday evening (loved it!!) and yesterday we went on a family nature walk that I really enjoyed and I got my camera out for the first time in a while.

I've been looking forward to fall. I love this time of the year so much. I love that the leaves are starting to change, I love that the weather is cooling off and I'm looking forward to pumpkin patches, corn mazes, apple cider and Halloween activities. October is one of my favorite months of the year. I'm hoping for more nature walks, lots more pictures and some other fun events coming up.

This week we're having some friends over for a season premier party for The Middle, which is one of my very favorite shows. Now that The Office is crappy I had to find some new shows to be addicted to! I'm looking forward to parking myself in front of the TV a few nights this week for all the season premiers.

For now I'm off to get the kids in bed, but I will leave you with a few cute pictures that I took of Clarissa yesterday. It's still next to impossible to get her to sit still for pictures, but I tried. I love that kid!

She is just stunning! Where do you get her clothes from?

Wendy said...

Thank you!

To tell you the truth I get most of her clothes at consignment stores! We have some good ones in the area and I dig around for gently used Gap, Gymboree, etc. I'm super picky about what I buy second hand. I only buy name brand clothes that look barely worn. There are great deals to be found if you're willing to dig! The whole outfit she has on in those pictures probably cost me less than $10. The great thing is that when she grows out of them I just take them back to the consignment store and trade them back in for store credit and I'll use the credit to buy more clothes! It's sort of like a game for me, lol.
