And so another month has whizzed on by! It was a month full of swim practices, swim meets and finally some time away from home. The boys and I had a road trip up to Milwaukee, Wisconsin and enjoyed ourselves. Yes, I survived driving them all by myself!
Between our travels and my parent’s 4+ week road trip I have a lovely collection of goodies from all over the States (and Canada) for this month’s post.
First let’s begin with items my fantastic mom found for me. They spent over four weeks driving across the country. The highlight was of course visiting my brother in Seattle. From their stop in New Mexico we got these lovely goodies.
Josh and I are big salsa fans so we can’t wait to open these.
It’s been another crazy month. I don’t know if it’s just having fall birthdays, Halloween, the cooler weather or what…but autumn is always very busy for us. This month wasn’t any different.
In the beginning of the month we had my parents visiting. They came to watch the boys while Josh and I went to Charlotte for the night and then come home and celebrate Jack’s birthday a little early. Things changed when Hurricane Matthew came to town. Our night out was cancelled, but we certainly still celebrated Jack’s birthday.
We didn’t suffer any major damage from the hurricane since we are well inland. Just some heavy rain and high winds at times. We had a plum tree uprooted which we managed to get up again and staked it do the ground, fingers crossed it stays up and healthy. The power flickered a few times and went out while I had pumpkin muffins in the oven. We finished breakfast by candle light.
