Had a layover in Minneapolis, on our way home from Michigan. Boy this trip was hard. It was short and fast, with little sleep and a post spinal tap headache. It was hard.

I LOVE freshly painted toenails and this particular day, I got to paint mine 4 times… ‘cause a giant monster dog kept stepping on them… Yep, she’s still worth it.

Supposed to be Cub Scout night, but it didn’t work out for us. We still had a quick dinner out at KFC/Taco Bell. Didn’t think Daddy was going to get to join us because he was working late… but he showed up just in time.
Boo loves the cooler weather we’ve been having. I play ball with her everyday that it’s 65 degrees or lower!
This week was Parent/Teacher conferences for both boys. They got out early on Wednesday and Thursday and had Friday off. And both our boys did so well on their reports this time… they fully deserved a day off!

This pie is so easy to make, so pretty to look at and so yummy. It’s a no-bake cheesecake in an oreo crust. The little boys weren’t wild about it, but Scott and I like it a lot. And it’s pretty, huh? Better than this:
It was going to be popcorn balls, but the recipe was so far off. It was far too marshmallow–y and sticky for me to like and it had to go bye-bye.
It started out pretty too… but when I tried to cut it, all the marshmallow had soaked down to the bottom. There was no cutting it… Live and learn.

Here’s my only tiny touch of fall this year… the few leaves left on one of our maples is actually turning like the whole tree should have. I’m thankful for this amount of color, after the abusive spring storms we had this year. As you can see, most of the leaves are already gone.
