Our Week in Pictures

Hey hey!! I’m going to keep this short and sweet this week. I’ve got a ton of pictures, but I’m running a little low on time (I’m still hoping to hop into bed with a bowl of cookie dough ice cream and a book before midnight!). So I’ll keep things on the pic-heavy side this week, and maybe I’ll get a little more time to chat next time โ˜บ๏ธ.

I guess I’ll start with the big news:

We got a dog!! She’s a sweet 3-year old walker hound, and we love her. She’s also driving me up the wall bonkers, because her separation anxiety is out of control. I’m woman enough to admit when I’ve done something stupid… and adopting a dog to keep in an apartment 4 weeks before moving was most definitely stupid.

But anyhow. She’s ours for keeps now, stupid or not! ๐Ÿ˜‚

My sister in law visited with my nephew, and we took the boys to the pumpkin patch ๐ŸŽƒ

We also visited the NC State Fair, which is always a milestone in our year. My sister was even home from school for the week, so it was twice as fun!

Food is always the main attraction for me at the fair. This year I was careful to make sure I got all of my favorites and none of the stuff that’s notย 100% worth it. At the top of my list: Wisconsin fried cheese, Elephant Ears, a sweet sausage and roasted red pepper stuffed baguette, and a bucket full of cookies!

The cheese and the elephant ears are definitely my favorites.

Last of all… a quick update on the house!

We’ve got a driveway, a porch, drywall, and a fireplace ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป.

Alright, that’s it for me! I’ve got about 15 minutes of reading time left– and my husband is totally going to judge me for this, but I’m still getting ice cream. Whatevs. ๐Ÿ˜‚ย #priorities
