October Is My Favorite Color

I took a bunch of pictures Saturday, and every one of them makes me happy.  While David was working, I took Gracie to the vet and Riley to the groomer.  While Riley was busy getting cleaned and trimmed, I cleaned up the house and took a few fall pictures.
 I don't spend much time at home at this time of day, and I love the light coming in.

 Once David got home, we headed to Farm Fest to look around and have a corn dog.  The weather was absolutely perfect for fall.  Then we headed to the lake to find that these goofs were dressed alike. ;)
 Riley got a new bed.  I was afraid he'd ignore it, but he seemed to like it!  Nothing beats a clean dog in a new bed!
It was a great weekend from beginning to end.  I really hate to see it end!

Birthday Month

September is birthday month at our house.  I turned the big 4-0 this year, or as my friend Krista says, "are you FINALLY turning 40?"  That's the great benefit of being the youngest of your group of friends.  Forty for me wasn't a big deal by the time it's my turn. ;)

We celebrated with Mom and Dad before our birthdays with the famous chocolate cake, then spent David's birthday weekend at the lake eating out, at Bass Pro Outdoor Days, and at Silver Dollar City.  My birthday fell on a Tuesday this year, and my friend Christina took a day off work to take me to lunch at my favorite tea room and spend the rest of the day antiquing.  David took me to dinner that evening.

So far 40 is starting off to be a wonderful year!
