Even with a nose like a leaky faucet...

I'm still greeting Fall with open arms.  Yeah, maybe I only got a cumulative 3 hours of sleep last night (waking up to pee five times and then taking hours to fall back asleep because of congestion is not my favorite moment in life), but at least Dan was here this morning to take care of London--who also has cold!  But considering she had diarrhea most of last week, I'll take the runny nose.  Besides, I now have had two excuses to enjoy a cup of hot chocolate in the mornings: not only is it officially fall, but it's medicinal--to clear my sinuses, you know.  ;)  Now I'm just trying to decide if I really should bake a fall treat tonight, because I don't want to get my cold germs in it...but I really need to do something to celebrate the wonderfulness of Fall!! And plus, I could do with a pick-me up after a sick-day like today.


While I continue to rationalize my craving for pumpkin treats, I thought I'd finally get around to sharing some of my birthday with you!  Dan made me birthday waffles...I may have had to step in and help him a bit, but it's the thought that counts, right?  Plus, they were delicious, so I'm not complaining!


After breakfast, we decided to head to the beach with our friends the Stephens.  It was a PERFECT beach day.  Dan doesn't normally like the beach, and even he had a good time.  Perfect weather, not too crowded...days like that are why I'll miss Southern California. 


Not pictured is our delicious lunch at Cafe Rio, dinner at Cheesecake Factory with Dan's parents, the My Sweet Cupcake Melissa got me, or my brand new Petunia Pickle Bottom diaper bag (thanks mom!!), or my awesome, brand-new, just-exactly-the-one-I-wanted double stroller!!

24 is looking like a good year so far--and only 5 more weeks until baby girl #2 gets here!  Woop woop!!

Hope you are feeling better now. We are having some cold weather already here in Utah and lots of rain. I could do without the rain but I am loving the fall weather. I changed out my closets with the fall/winter wardrobe and put away the summer/spring. I am going to the Women's meeting tonight - so lucky to have tickets for that...life is good for me and for you - hope you love being 24 (that was one of my favorite TV shows, by the way). Can't wait to see you ALL at Thanksgiving! Love, The Grammie Girl
