Go get your boobs checked!!

So, did you think I was going to write something terrible after that title??!!  Nope, not today anyway.  If you don't already know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and I say go get em checked!  I have my appointment set for later this month so I hope all of you have already done it this year or have it on your calendar too!

This month you will see all sorts of products out that promote B.C.A.M. and I hope that you will take some time out to purchase one or two of those items and notice what organization the funds will benefit.  I personally love the Yoplait lids, I have been saving for weeks and I also love the pink M&M's that are on sale at Target and most grocery stores.  Also, the Susan G. Komen online store usually has some fantastic goodies to buy this month so go check that page out too.

So, go have those "girls" checked out, go buy some great stuff to help support breast cancer research and may all of you be healthy and happy as you eat your pink M&M's this month!  Love you!

Do you know what time it is???

I do, it's fall!  I am reluctantly getting excited about the seasons changing.  Winter was really hard for me last year so you can understand why I am not ready for ice, snow and sub-zero temperatures.  

But, I do love fall.  I always have loved fall; the changing of the leaves, the crisp cool nights, the football season, and of course Halloween.  I have told you that the geese are a singing the leaves are a changing, right?  Well, tonight we have about 50 or so geese in the field behind our house.  For those of you who don't know what our yard looks like, we have no house behind us yet so we have four vacant lots directly behind us.  These geese are walking through the field getting some goodies before bed time.  I know from experience that they will keep coming back to the fields for a week or so and then get ready to take flight.  

I love the geese and the beauty of their majestic flight.  They are so graceful when they land and so hypnotic when they fly in their perfect "V".  I am glad we are here and I can experience something new.  Hey, maybe I am ready for it to turn cold after all.  Hmmm, we will see when that first snow comes how I am feeling.

Go football!

What a great weekend I had huh?  USC lost to the Oregon Beavers, the Irish won against Purdue!  Yee-haw.  The only way it would have been better is if Notre Dame beat USC...all in good time my friends, all in good time.  : )

We had a few soccer games this weekend, the football games and bought some Halloween decorations.  The weather is still really beautiful.  The days are warm, the nights are cool and it is sunny all day long.  Very nice.  I know it won't last for long, the geese and the leaves keep telling me that the cold is on its way.  So for now I am still wearing shorts, still sipping on cold coffee drinks and enjoying the glorious weather.

Today, we went shooting at the archery range.  It has been a while since I worked on my skills, but I only hit one elk in the eye and all the others were straight kills.  I am hoping Jeff will at least take me turkey hunting this year.  I know I am a girl and I have to go to the bathroom all the time, but I want a turkey too.  Wow, I just whined like a girl too, better knock that stuff off.

Hope you all had a great weekend too.  Loves and kisses!
