Hello monday..

I learned ten things this weekend.



1. make sure you know where your scarf is before you go pee at a restroom.



2. just because you have a tub of popcorn at the movies followed by an apple...that isn't "watching what you eat..."


3. Somehow i end up with 2 out of 3 kids.......which makes for uneven parenting....




4. We love a good walk in the woods.....


5. I love living in a state that has four seasons.....


6. The book and the movie...'where the wild things are' ...are quite different { i love that my kids questioned everything in the movie}....even why Max was so unhappy.


7. I can cry at a childrens movie.......






















8. Skirts are really cute inside the house....but when you step outside and it's 30 degrees...your leg hairs start to hate you......

9. My kids love boxed {dehydrated} mashed potatoes......and it's just as easy to make as mac n cheese...
10. I made homemade pancakes the other day...and Fin demanded that i give him the real pancakes....the ones from the freezer.......{why do i bother cooking..}










10. Even though i promised i would have the "official" invite ready for 'An Inspired Evening'.....some things don't go as planned ....


11. I'm glad i don't have a checklist.....umm.....i do have a checklist actually.....but don't worry...because i'm not one of those that gets carried away when things don't go as planned....nope....i'm not one of those..

One can only imagine what happened to your scarf !?LOL

Amanda @ Bits and Pieces said...

The "real" pancakes- that one especially cracked me up!

Tracy is ... Loving Pretty Things said...

I love your 10 things list. Especially the scarf. It always helps to remind those who haven't had fall come yet.

LOVE your long hair - my hair is at the point where I need to stick it out or cut it all off. I'm leaning toward cutting it off....but I don't have the pixie-ness going on so I'd look like a big oaf with no hair....not cute.

sigh....you're fabulous! xoxo

Kristin said...

What a fabulous weekend...sorry about the leg hairs...we had summer weather here....my kids can't wait to see the movie...always hesitant on going to a movie that's been made from one of our favorite books...

Your outfits always make me want to take a lighter to mine..how do you do it1?!?! You are amazing!!

Even in the middle of the woods you are cute!!!! I'm glad you put up the picture of what shoes you had on because as I was reading this I kept wondering "what kind of shoes would kasey wear in the woods?" ha!

paula said...

Michelle@Fromhousetohome said...

Jill said...

Love the pics - looks like you had a great weekend. I felt the same way about Where The Wild Things Are - finally a "smart" kids movie - sometimes the little ones get so underestimated! I am going to give you a call today.
Jill

Oh, and thanks for the 10 things - I know as close as you are going to get to following the directions of the blog award! Loved em!

Susie from Bienvenue said...

LOve your pictures! I need a movie night soon.Oh and about that scarf....i found out the hard way at the Razorback game two weeks ago. Thank goodness I discovered it before it was too late...whewwww. Saved that 3.00 scarf!

Backyard Candle Co. said...

Great pics, as usual!

traci said...

cute photos. i wonder why i cook too. if i make a big meal noone is home to eat it. if i don't, they are home wondering why "there is nothing to eat". i think i'll start just making box potatoes and freezer pancakes. sounds perfect to me. xo!

paperbird said...

Beautiful photographs- it looks like it was a fun filled weekend. I love your white scarf!

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

I always love your photos!!!

countryrosegal said...

Good Morning! I just found your blog and spent the last two hours reading from day one. I enjoyed it so much because if I didn't know better, I would say we are the same person! Same thoughts, same style, same way of living, farmhouse, cooking (or not), thoughts about our children . . .If I had a girl, her name would also have been Lola - but I have 2 boys so I named my cat Lola! :) Reading your blog, has inspired me to start my own - hopefully. It's on the "to do" list!!! I love how you seem to write for yourself, not so much for all of us who tune in to get a glimpse of your life. Glad I found you and can't wait to read more!

Jboo said...

Nice list of 10 things! What a fun weekend and cool photos! Have a good week!

Leah C said...

Who knew one weekend could hold so many lessons to learn? Sounds like it was a great weekend...love, love the photos:)
P.S. I almost always end up crying during a children's movie{my girls tease me about it}

foggogs said...

Your pictures are so great. Does someone take them for you or do you have a triod? My weekend did not go as planned either but may have been more fun! We were supposed to visit my husbands accordion teacher but seeing as he was not feeling well we changed things up a bit. We changed half of my kids playroom into an art studio and my husband and the kids did some oil paintings for me! I cant wait for my fall triptic to dry so i can hang it in my front hall way.

Gretchen said...

I have had the same scarf situation, so I know what you mean! As far as crying at the movie, I cried at the commercial for it! So your O.K.
Have a nice week!

Holly said...

Learn as ya go right?!?! ;)

Susan said...

Jacqueline said...

Totally relate to the scarf...and it's not only scarves !!!!
Love it when you talk about your cooking 'attempts'and I also love living, in my case, a country (England) with 4 seasons.
Lovely insight into Kasey's world. XXXX

Farmgirl Paints said...

Yup we have those hair problems here in Minnesota too. Doesn't pay to shave really:)

Jessica Haley said...

Lovely post--beautiful pics! Lol about the scarf and the bathroom! Little kiddos with overalls can also be problematic for the same reason...

Brenna LaPray said...

Great photos! I love Lola's hat. Where did you get it? My kids love the frozen waffles better than homemade too. Why is that?

jen from windy ridge said...

hehe

love these photos!

Lemonade Makin' Mama said...

This is great, and I could very much relate to several of the lessons you learned... (sometimes you just need to leave the scarf at home...)

PamperingBeki said...

You make me giggle, nod in agreement, warm my heart, and want to be a better person all with one post.

Well done, lady!!

Simone said...

Lovely post and gorgeous photos....that beautiful girl of yours should definitely be in a GAP commercial :)

Kristin said...

Tights are your best friend lady! And who says it's not watching your wait? You mean just because I had a salad for dinner and then ate a million s'mores, I wasn't sticking to my diet? Crap.

paperhill said...

walks in the woods are great, love your pictures. i like the scarf tip :) take care, susan

Alyssa said...

a very educational weekend! I agree with you about the tub of popcorn - although I get the diet coke to go with it, not an apple ;)

Anne~fiona and twig said...
