pumpkin spice goodness

I really love fall...leaves changing, crisp days, long sleeved shirts and sweaters, and warm drinks. Today, after checking out at Target (in which I lost my wallet only to discover it under my arm...I'm a dork), I decided to use the the $2 pumpkin spice latte coupon I had received. You know, I kinda like that about Target - they track where I spend my money while in their store and then give me a coupon to buy even more. The last time I had a pumpkin spice latte (which I normally look forward to each fall) was about 2 years ago when I was in the middle of my first trimester and was very, very, VERY sick. So, I threw up my last pumpkin spice latte. I was really nervous to try it again. I guess time does heal all wounds because the pumpkin spice latte with soy milk I had today was pure goodness.

and we're back!

I promise to share pics of our new house, but I have to take some "after" photos first. We FINALLY finished the sprinkler system project (in fact, we drove up to our house last night after being gone for the weekend and there was grass!) and have felt the sweet relief of being able to rest and enjoy our house, friends, family, each other.

We had the opportunity to go to Dallas this past weekend (thanks to our friends, Justin & Holly). We had so much fun as a family. We went to the Ft. Worth Zoo, ate at one of our all time favorite restaurants - Chuys, and ended our trip with a visit to the Dallas Arboretum. It was so great!
