Weekly Gratitude

For being able to live vicariously through Diana...love getting excited again about things like Halloween because she experiences so much excitement and joy...there is nothing like it...here she is with her dance pals during Halloween Costume Day!

and for carving jack-o-lanterns...one of my favorite past-times (and thankful I have the best sport of a husband who gets into everything to make me happy!)

for being able to share the WHS football experience with my parents....such a great time!

for the return of great workouts!  WOOHOO!  

for new friends at work...we have such a great group and I am thankful for the ability to build great teams!  We celebrated hitting some hefty numbers last night at The Venetian Moon- wonderful!

for my step kids and the relationships I have with them...it has not always been easy but I am so proud of the love and trust we have built...so much work but oh so worth it...they are all so special in their own ways and I am grateful I can be a big part of their lives

and for just pure silliness that we enjoy every day!!!

oh yeah and snow in October?  thankful?  Well...to put a positive spin on it....just thankful it wasn't much and we can all drive safely (and thankful it will be back in the 60's by next week!)

as my Dad always said..." honey there's frost on the pumpkin!"

Fall Things We Are LOVING right now!

I will forever remember this fall by the fun we have had with trips to pick up Ally at UNH....Zack's wonderful football season...and a thankfulness for job security that we did not have in recent years.

I make memories by scents and my certain songs...I make memories every day..I am very sentimental and I think Diana is taking after me.

Example #1: Ichabod Crane and The Headless Horseman (Disney's Legend of Sleepy Hollow) has become her new favorite just like Mama's and Papa Pete's

Some of the songs that are popular right now that I LOVE singing along with include Stereo Hearts, Cheers to the Weekend and We Found Love (and I am not a big Rihanna fan but can't resist!)

Favorite Smells Right Now?
Yankee Candle's Candy Corn Candle and one of my Fall Perfumes- Juicy Couture..mmmmm

Diana needs to put in her two cents too okay?  Her new Strawberry Shortcake Doll from Mimi and Papa is her absolute fave...she is actually obsessed...she came complete with hair extensions and barrettes (right up Diana's alley)
Some of Mama's favorite things to wear right now?
Betsy Johnson's leopard costume jewelry...meow!

Pink Uggs (breast cancer awareness!)

and my new camel leather jacket...total splurge...but Oh...So...Necessary!

Pinnacle has the best flavored vodkas!  We just started trying some new funky ones- cotton candy, whip cream and marshmallow- DELISH!  (They do mix well with Diet Sprite and other fun things!)

a true carnival in a cup!
and just like Gingerbread at Christmastime...I love love love everything Pumpkin in the fall
pumpkin spice coffee...pumpkin desserts...and this new delicacy...Philly Pumpkin Cream Cheese (especially on my gluten free Ezekial bread...yummo!)

Are you enjoying Fall?  We certainly are in New England..it has been unseasonably warm and we will take it!  It has made for wonderful weekends outside and much more fun outfits and activities!!  Cheers to the Freakin' Weekend... ;)

 #3 is Joey...our Quaterback and my house guest this past week..he rocks!

Ally sporting her new do....major change thanks to Bella Viaggio...I just LOVE it!
