Daybook- Labor Day Edition

Well, it's officially Fall in my book. Yes I know Fall isn't technically till the middle of this month but September, October & November signify Fall to me. While it's been a good summer, it's definitely flew by way too fast. I wish there was a rewind button. Unfortunately, there is not see we might as well look forward to all the great things Fall has to offer.

Here is a little about how we spent our very first day of September 2014 and in my world, the first day of Fall 2014 :)

For Today: Labor Day 2014

Outside My Window- My front porch is an absolute mess, their is toys strung all over my yard and the used to be boat shed is torn down!

I am Thinking- About my poor tummy cramps I'm having. Sometimes being a woman sucks. I really should have remembered my Motrin when I went to town earlier.

I am Thankful- For every single crazy, chaotic day that I'm alive and blessed with this beautiful family of mine

In the Kitchen- SJ's cheeseburgers are still on the stove. He's laying down with the kids right now and will hopefully find time to eat once they go to sleep. He's been a busy guy today. He went out on the hill with a buddy of his to shoot guns for awhile & then by the time he got home he had company here.

I am Wondering- How my boy will do with his first day of school tomorrow. I'm not expecting it to be a good morning. We have his clothes all laid out, we bought him new underwear today and he had a shower and haircut before bed tonight. I'm praying the transition this year isn't as difficult as it was last year.

I am Wearing- Red Ball Shorts and a Red Tee! I did get dressed today. Here's my Labor Day Outfit!

Shirt- Don't remember
Vest- Factory Connection
Shorts- Factory Connection
Shoes- Thrifted
Necklace- Cato's

I am Creating- Actually it's created- here is my September Goals- hold me accountable please!!

1. Go to my Niece Violet's Party & my Cousin Chase's Party
2. Host my Sister in Law's Baby Shower
3. Attend Septemberfest 
4. Do Date Night (Hopefully Cabin Camping)
5. Eliminate Debt
6. Get a Job
7. Get Ax adjusted to school
8. Buy a new pair of Fall Boots
9. Color my Hair
10. Take Lucy to the vet

I am Going- To have so much fun shopping for my partner for the Fall Swap! Have you all ever done a blog swap before? I got partnered with an adorable lady and can't wait to start putting her package together :)

I am Reading- Blogs which is pretty much the only thing I ever read

I am Hoping- To get a phone call about a job this week. Fingers crossed :)

I am Looking Forward To- Next weekend- A Festival, Baby Shower Shopping, Church Yard Sale and Baby Shower! It should be a good weekend!

I am Learning- That my Axle is as tough as nails but when he's tired he will cry over the littlest things.

Around the House- Things are in descent shape. I didn't do much indoors today because it's a holiday (right)? Hubby did get the camper cleaned out today though. That's progress!

I am Pondering- On if I should blog read or just go to bed. I know I should go to bed but I'd really like to blog read. Hard decision folks!

A Favorite Quote: 

One of My Favorite Things Today- These photos my Aunt sent me of my kids. They went to her house with my parent's today for a cookout. I thought about going but decided to stay home instead. I just didn't feel like it. I love these photos though. You can tell how much fun they had!

I am Encouraged By: People from the Church I go to who send me sweet notes from time to time. It's nice to know they genuinely care about me.

A Few Plans for the Rest of the Week: Tomorrow I'll be taking Ax to Pre-K for his first day. Anika has a dentist appointment first thing in the morning and luckily my Mom has offered to take her for me. Wednesday Lee Lee and I have an appointment for our eye checkup. Thursday Anika has counseling and a doctor's appointment. Friday I plan on doing some Baby Shower Shopping & then taking the kids to the Septemberfest. Saturday is our Church Yard Sale and Photos and Sunday I'll be hosting a Baby Shower!!!

In Other News: I moved the puppies today and they done fine with the move & so did Lucy. I hope to have some photos of the cuties for you asap!

That does it for me. Can't wait to hear all about your Labor Day Festivities

Till Tomorrow,

  1. You had an awesome day! I hope and pray that you will find a job soon. There must be something out there for you. And I hope your kids will transition well to not having mom around 24/7. Those pictures of the kids in the pool look like fun!
