Holy Cow Fall!


When did it turn into October?!?
(also, did someone wake up the Green Day guy??)

This is my first fall in California, 
and I came up with a "must do" of sorts. 
(to ease the pain of not going to the NC State Fair, or the Ren Fest..)

1. Apple picking at Gizdich Ranch 

2. Make a pie (of any variety) 

3. Learn two different soup recipes

4. Master a cider recipe. That's right, I said MASTER

5. Make a minifire (the grill will count..WE LIVE IN CALI y'all..) and make smores. 


7. Find a festival or fair to go to.

D&B: or, How I Learned to stop being afraid of Zombies and love the Dinosaurs.

A few weeks ago, 
Mike and I went to Dave and Busters. 

I've been, yes, when I turned 21. 
7 years ago. Yesterday.
There's one really close to us, 
so we decided to give it a shot.

Mr. Video Game was in heaven!

We LOVED the Jurassic Park game, 

the photobooth, 

and the cut the rope game. 

We even got a nice set of tickets going...

Then..Mike saw the 4D zombie. 
Let's list the things I don't like. 
1. Zombies, 2. being scared, 3. things jumping at me, 4. zombies. 

Well, marriage means killing zombies together. 
So, I played.

Not scary..
(well, the zombies that had 8 legs were..)
BUT, the breeze on my neck was nice. 

We ended the night with a nice set of tickets, 
and I think we'll be back. :)

Weekend Update

Welp, another weekend bites the dust. 

Shiva took her traditional "Dad's not home and I'm sad" nap all night, 

while I did a little nail art. 


I picked up Mike from Brazil!

We took a little family nap.  

Mike brought me these beauties from Brazil 

Then it was off to get my hairs did. 
Truth be told, it's a bit darker than I like. 
(I feel like the villain in a Disney movie) 

Mike and I went on a nice little date night too! 


We made it to brunch! It seems like that never happens anymore... 

then watched some football, did some chores, and called it a day.  

(ps 167 days til the pressure on me or anything)
