At least we have fall

Since returning to the motherland….it’s been hard to come up with awesome reasons to live here this time of year.  Today was 40ish degrees, cloudy and dreary.  It will be that way for at least 5 more month–s except we’ll add in some snow, extreme cold and more clouds.   Fun!  There is one thing we do have that the southern states don’t have: fall.   Behold: fall in Minnesota.

Changing leaves...

I thought this would be gone when I got back from the West.

Confirmed: we got extra weeks of fall this year, this also happened 3 weeks ago (on different trees obviously).

I guess we have nice sunsets too...

Fall fun: out. of. control.

Sorry friends (and Mom) it’s been 5000 days since I last posted.  Life has gotten crazy busy.  So here I’m back now and now I will share what I have been up to:

1.) Booking vacations.  On a whim I decided to visit my lovely college friend Beth.  She lives in CA…as in California.  I bought the ticket last week and leave next week. Pumped? Yes.  In college we always found the most random (bluff climbing, trip to Chicago, concerts, guitar hero at Rock Solid…) things to do. And it was all great.  I have no doubts this trip will be a blasty-blast.

Can't wait to see you Beth!

2.)  Thrifting for adorable fall frocks.  I may have went on a semi-out of control hunt for boots today.  Not successful.

3.) Celebrating birthdays!  October is the 2nd most popular month after February for my friends to have birthdays in!  One day we went to an apple orchard another day we went to a trampoline world.  Seriously.

Fall fun and birthdays! Boom. *photo credit to Laura!

4.) Making plans for New Years Eve.  It may be two months away but concert tickets are bought…we will be ringing in 2012 with Caroline Smith and the Sleepers…or Good Night Sleeps and DAWES.  Outfits are set.  Now there will be no worry about what to do on NYE.  Problem avoided.

Next up.  Posting from Cali…I’ll do my best to make this happen….
