Catching Up

I've most definitely been a somewhat absentee blogger lately. Which is a bit depressing because I miss blogging, and I miss catching up with all of you, my blogger friends. So I'm going to try my best to get back into it lately, which basically means I need to stop passing out on the couch! Although I do only have one more month of needing to pump at night which will definitely help since it means I can go to sleep early instead of needing to stay up later just to get those extra ounces.

As for the lack of posts, it's been over a month since I last posted a Project 365 update. I was behind when I was still posting them, which means I'm even more behind now. I am still take a photo most days so part of me would like to get back to them, but I'm not going to stress to much if that doesn't happen.

Also, on the topic of not finishing things, last month wrapped up my 101 in 1001. I most definitely didn't complete all 101 tasks, but I would still like to post updates on the things that did happen. So add that to the to-do list!

As for things that have actually been accomplished, we made it to a pumpkin patch earlier this month!

Instead of driving all the way out to the big pumpkin patch with all types of rides and attraction, we found one at a church that basically just had pumpkins and was much more our style. Elley seemed to take it all in stride and had fun looking around, likely wondering who decided to place all the orange balls in an open field.
We made it to a pumpkin patch!
Of course I made sure the pumpkin we brought back with us got carved up. I had actually found online the pattern I used to carve every year growing up, Trick or... EEK! and was so excited it was as awesome I as remembered. Just the prefect mix of cute, with Minnie, and scary, with a monster.
Trick or...EEK!
To finish things up, I'm actually participating in a children's book swap right now, which you may have already seen going around facebook, but if you want to join in just let me know and I'll send you the details!

I do have adorable Halloween pictures I plan on sharing as well, hopefully I'll be back to bring them to the blog soon!


  1. Hurray for pumpkin patch fun! She is precious in that smocked dress!!

  2. Wow, that carving turned out amazing!!! How cute! That's the best carving job I saw this year!

    I can see how it's hard to fit blogging in with everything else that you have going on! I hope something gives soon so you can make time for it since it's something you enjoy! We'll be here when you are ready to come back more consistently! :)

  3. I'm so glad you're back! I've missed your updates.

    That is a great picture of the two of you together. So cute. :)

    Your pumpkin is awesome!

    Looking forward to catching up with you more.

  4. We didn't actually make it to a pumpkin patch this year. Fail. And so I totally get your having no energy/time to blog. I'm looking forward to catching up as you are able to write posts.
