The Perfect Fall Day ...

The minute I walked out this morning,
I knew it was going to be a beautiful day.

It was that slight crispness in the air,
and I could just smell fall.

Courtney and I went to the nursery and bought
a few necessities for the front porch.
I'll post pictures when it is done.

Next was a drive up the canyon to see all the gorgeous fall colors,
and to collect some twigs and leaves to decorate with.

I wish I had a better camera,
and I wish I was a better photographer ...

but the colors were breathtaking!

Too bad I live in a state where fall only lasts about 5 days.
It is supposed to start snowing this week ...
very sad thought for me.

We ended the night with a yummy fall dinner
made from fresh veggies we bought this morning that had just been picked.

It was a perfect fall day!

And now I am in my cozy flannel nightgown
and am ready for a perfect fall nights sleep ...

Sweet Harvest Dreams!

Weekend Shout Outs ...

It was a good weekend,
and I have a lot of shout outs to give.

The first shout out goes to ...

Bronco and his Cougars.
The season is off to a great start.
I love Bronco!

The next shout out goes to my childhood friend, Trina,
who is giving Martha Stewart a run for her money!
She posted this bread recipe on her blog a few months ago,
and I have been dying to try it.

It turned out to be quite good,
and was a VERY easy recipe!
Another one of my 2009 goals that I can check off!
Thanks for sharing Trina!

Shout out #3 is for Gwen,
the nice woman who gave me her two dressers ...
for FREE!

I spent the weekend painting them black.
Next will be new knobs and I will be ALL set!

And the last shout out goes to Comcast on Demand,
for adding "The Real housewives of Atlanta"
to their queue.
It kept my household pretty entertained.

Now for a good week!

Are You As Excited As I Am?

It's Finally Here!!!

I am SO SO SO SO excited for it to start!!!

And just in case you aren't sure if you are,
here is a little reminder why you should be ...

(pretty sure that Glee Club teacher is my new boyfriend!)

(and for all you Gilmore Girl fans, recognize that piano player?
He used to work for Miss Patty!)

(AND ... one more thing. They have also posted this little number from the show.
And I am going to have to talk to them about royalties because they stole the dance I ALWAYS do at the car wash. Rude!)

If You Are Anything Like Me ...

then you spend a lot of time pondering deep things...

like "Whatever happened to Corky from 'Life Goes On' ?".

Well, thanks to Al Gore and his internet
tonight I got my answer.

In case you were wondering
Corky now tours the country with his folk band!
And thanks to You Tube
you can watch him perform.

I am sure Patti Lupone is very proud!

Are You Watching Project Runway?

Every time you see him,
do you want to start singing
"Don't Worry, Be Happy" ?

Because I do.

I Have A Confession To Make ...

I was not a normal child.

I spent most of the 80's
watching "The Making of We Are The World" video,
playing store with the Lillian Vernon catalogs that came in the mail,
and singing along to the "Footloose" soundtrack.

Because of that ...

I just watched this movie for the first time this week.
I loved it.
