Happy Homemaker Monday Vol. 23

We had such a busy, but fun weekend. We visited the pumpkin patch with friends, went on a hayride (cough, sneeze, cough..whooo, it was fun though!). We visited with family, and celebrated my brother's birthday. 

The weather...
It's October which means crisp blue skies, gentle breezes, a whisp of cool air mixed with the heat of the sun. While our summers are exhausting, and harsh, the fall makes up for it here. It's beautiful.

Right now I am...

Just finishing up my breakfast of iced coffee, and a muffin in a mug. The girls are watching Super Why.

About a meeting tonight, how I want to decorate the back porch with fall items, and about a handful of books that I'd like to buy. I'm also thinking it's time for a hiking/photography excursion. My brain is all over the place this morning. ;)

On my TV...

Fixer Upper (Re-Runs)

Last Man Standing (with Josh)

  1. Hi Heather! Happy week ahead to you!! I just caught up on your former posts too and love seeing the photos of your beautiful family. Your daughters are so darn adorable and getting so big already!! Looks like your enjoying this wonderful season in all the right ways. ;)

    Blessings on the rest of your week Hon. xoxo

  2. Sounds like a lovely weekend. I just planted my pumpkin seeds here in Australia!

  3. It sounds like you have a busy week ahead. Sometimes it is nice to just relax and watch a movie :) I hope you can stop by:


  4. Good morning, Sounds like you had a lovely weekend even with all the coughing and sneezing : ) We have yet to visit our local pumpkin patch-not in our budget at this time, I am shocked at how much it is for a family of four to get in just to pay for pumpkins. (its almost half my grocery budget) Id love to see what you do with your back porch. I just add mums to mine and miss going all out when my children were little. you have inspired me...I might just bring out the scarecrows today. have a great week.

  5. Sounds like a good week was had, Heather. YAY for yummy menus (it's now the perfect "soup season" for us!) and family time. The latter is the best. :)
