What I'm loving

Happy Monday y'all!

I don't know about where you all are, but around these parts it is starting to feel like fall.  There was football on the TV, a craft show in the park and best of all... COOL temperatures this weekend.  I absolutely live for this time of year.  So I am 100% LOVING it.

What else am I loving lately?

-Big bowls of macaroni and cheese.  I'm a kid at heart and could eat this stuff allllll day errry'day if I could.  While I am not a believer in dieting while nursing, I do try and watch how much I eat when it comes to the likes of that Kraft box of goodness.

-Grocery delivery from Hyvee and drive up services from Target.  No more lugging 3 kids in and out with a cart full of things unless I absolutely feel the need to torture myself.

-Emily giggles and smiles.  The absolute sweetest.

-Pumpkin scented candles.

-My Christmas gift list being done MONTHS in advance.

-THAT SCHOOL IS BACK.  In all caps, because I am still in that back-to-school excitement from last week.

-Instastories.  I was all "meh" for the longest time when it came to this new form of social media.  But I'm a believer now.  Instagram in general is my jam.  Speaking of, do you follow Somewhere Over the Camo on Instagram?  What are you waiting for?! @somewhereoverthecamo

-Weekends spent with family.  After a long busy summer we were so excited to spend Saturday with my parents and Sunday with my sister.

Saturday we met my parents for lunch, boutique shopping and the Old Settlers Festival.  It was WAY overpriced and the layout made absolutely no sense.  But the weather was nice and we were not sweating our booties off walking all over the place.  The girls favorite princesses were there from one of the local theaters, Belle and Moana.  (Of course, Brooke wouldn't take a picture with Moana but kept asking us where she was the minute we left.) They got to ride two rides and then seemed content.  We had some fried oreos and a funnel cake.  Because it's a fair.  More than anything, it was just nice to get out and enjoy the day after a full week (almost) of rain.

Sunday my sister came out and saw us.  We went to the first craft show of the season.  Lots of unique little handmade items.  Again, super nice weather for walking around outside.  We shared some cookies.  Cried over some cookies.  And then loaded up to head home with some cookies.  Erin joined us for dinner and it was just a super relaxing Sunday with football on the television and did I mention the weather?  It was amazing.

And now it is Monday.  I am not even mad about it y'all.

How was your weekend?
