Recent Happenings

It's been a while since I've posted some random pics.  Here goes!

We made it to the pumpkin patch and corn maze a few weekends ago.  We also hit up the cider mill for some apple cider donuts.  We woke up to cold temps, so we had to dig out our winter hats.  Fall fun at its finest!

My sister and her family are vacationing in Thailand (a quick 1.5 hour flight from their home in Singapore). They are having some amazing experiences! They are definitely NOT in Iowa anymore!  Miss them so much.

My mom found this great plate at Homegoods the other day, and she is bringing me one.  Perfect for my dining room gallery wall.  Only $3.99...and the gold obsession continues!

Tis the season for all things football around here including impromptu games of flag in our yard.  I love that Kate gets right in the mix with all the boys.  She is such a mix of girly and sporty, with tons of sass sprinkled in!  Lord help me!

Speaking of sass, this is what I found the other day...wonder where she got this idea??!!

The word on the street was that Ikea had fiddle leaf figs in stock.  My mom went and got one for herself and I'm still debating if I need another one or not.  These are a lot smaller than what I have, but for $12, you can't beat it.  Don't forget they are very finicky, but oh, how I LOVE them!

Jewel, our FLF, is still doing well.  I found a spot that she likes, and am trying my best not to kill her!

If you have any hard-leaf house plants, they will get dusty.  I use this product on my FLF and other indoor plants and it makes the leaves really shine.

I scored some brand new LL Bean moccasins while out thrifting the other day!  Never been worn for $3.99.  I find the most random stuff when I'm out.  You can still find them in several different colors if you need a pair. And they are on sale!

I was out thrifting in search of some inspiration for a "Look for Less" challenge that I am working on with a few other bloggers.  More to come on that next week, but here is part of what I deconstructed for the challenge.  I needed some long, cheap twigs!

Drew's school had their 10-year anniversary so they had a balloon launch at the school on 10/10.  Love this image!

I got a new computer and needed a new desktop background.  You can find this free download here if you need some gold dots in your life!

In the past few weeks, LLL has gotten seven new features!  A huge thank you to the following blogs:
