This sweet little peanut and I had a fun, chill day. We laid around in our pj's for a long time then ran a couple of quick errands, came home to have lunch, then relaxed the rest of the day. I love my little sidekick and I'm so happy to have an errand running buddy and constant companion. I must have been super bored before he came along!!

Whispers of Fall
Today I decided that I was in the mood to put a little touch of fall in my house. I went to the pumpkin patch and grabbed a couple of little white pumpkins to sprinkle throughout my kitchen and I love the simplicity of it (you can see a pic of it on my Instagram @kara2lou). I also cut a bunch of hydrangeas off of my bushes to bring inside and enjoy. My hydrangeas must be late bloomers because they always do so great in September/October. I remember last October we had our first frost on Halloween. We took the prettiest photos of Campbell in his costume in front of the hydrangeas because they were full of blooms and just looked gorgeous. The next morning I went outside to take down my Halloween decorations and my bushes were 100% dead. They went from luscious green leaves with huge pink, white and blue blooms bursting out everywhere to sad brown sticks. I gasped loudly when I saw them and it made me so sick that I didn't cut the dozens of blooms off to bring inside and enjoy. I guess I 1.) didn't realize we were having a frost and 2.) for some reason didn't know that a frost would kill your flowers instantly. I thought about it that whole entire day because it made me so sad. I'm prepared this year! I won't let that happen again. It scarred me for life I swear!!! The point of that super long story is that I'm going to start cutting more of my hydrangeas and bringing them inside to enjoy because I know they don't have much longer. I love flowers if you didn't know.
