We decided today was a nice day for carving pumpkins. We grew these {and several others....although not as many as last year} ourselves. Translated: 20+ pumpkins cost us about 10 cents.
I about choke when I see what pumpkin patches charge for one measly pumpkin. I think we're in the wrong business!!
Gutting the pumpkins was both girls' favorite part. Or not.

Isn't this the most attractive picture you've ever seen someone post of themselves on their blog? Whatever. I'm going to the gym later. Probably.

Emma and Paige.

Lauren's, Emma's, mine.
We're a creative bunch, no? :)
{In my defense, I don't have one of those fancy pumpkin carving knives so I had to make do with my Cutco paring knife. I'm just glad - and somewhat amazed - that I didn't lose a finger...or three.}

What I Wore Wednesday {Week 2}

I only have 3 pictures this week because I was at a women's retreat at Hume Lake for 3 days {yipee!}. And if I'm being completely honest, I didn't get dressed on Monday. I was tired and didn't feel great. I don't think anyone needs a picture of that! You're welcome.
Last Wednesday....Enrichment classes for the girls.
Sundress: Gap outlet...couple of years ago.
Sandals: Gap....couple of years ago.
Only in Kern County could I have worn this dress on Wednesday {and sweat to death in it} and then, less than one week later..... ...it's cold and raining! This was Tuesday and I took dinner to our piano teacher who just had a sweet baby boy. I'll be honest, I would have worn yoga pants all day this day if not for the fact that I knew I only had 3 pictures for this week and I didn't one of them to be of me in that outfit! :)
Jeans: Levi's from Costco...these are my new favorites and you will be seeing them a lot! Super comfortable! I just bought them last week so, if you hurry....
Top: Gap outlet....$3 on Friday {we always stop and shop at the outlets on our way to Hume and the Gap outlet was a hit this year! LOTS of clearance and we had coupons! :)}
{Mr. Rogers} Sweater: Target....$12 on the clearance rack, recently.
Flats: Target....$10 in the spring.
Necklace: Lisa Leonard

Today! Enrichment classes for the girls.

Jeans: Gap in SLO....$8 last year. I wear them way too much and they really need to be retired. They used to be dark blue. But, I love them so! ;)

Top: Gap outlet....$4 on Friday!
Same {Mr. Rogers} Sweater as yesterday!

Black flats: Target....$10 in the spring.

Necklace: Lisa Leonard

Yellow, leather flower ring: Hume gift shop....$6! Love!
