This weekend was the perfect combination of chilly weather, fall shoes (finally!),
 Sonic for dinner,
 awesome clouds,
 fall candles,
 and pretty sunsets.

Oh, and college football.  But I'm in the process of trying to permanently erase Penn State's Saturday night loss to Iowa from my mind, so let's not talk about college football!

Hey! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I'm a Penn State fan! A few of my family members went there.

And as for running, it took me about seven months until I finally started not to struggle as much with it. Granted, I still do sometimes but it can be tough!

I love candles! Your picture reminded me how much I need to go and pick some up. I hear sonic is good, but have never been there. It's on the to-do list. :)

Oh, sonic! A thing of the past for me. It's criminal, but the nearest sonic to me in Alaska is 6 hours away. I'd give one of my dogs up for a chocolate milkshake right now! ;)
Beautiful pics! I am also a sucker for fall scents, so much so I bust them out year round hehe :)

Cute blog!

what i've been reading

I decided to try something new for the blog today, and I'm joining my first ever Show Us Your Books link-up with Stephanie and Jana to share the books I read in June!

Party Girl, by Rachel Hollis:  A few weeks ago I logged into my Amazon account, only to realize that I'd been the beneficiary of $17.00 in credit thanks to a class action lawsuit I didn't even know I was a part of.  I decided to download Rachel Hollis' series since I am a big fan of her website, The Chic Site, and had been dying to read her books for quite some time.  Party Girl is the first book in the series, and I read it in a few long porch sitting sessions over the course of a weekend.  The book is based on the author's life, and how she got her start as a Hollywood party planner.  I was rooting for the main character the whole time, and the book was fun, light, and made me laugh.  Which is something we could all probably use these days.

The Good Girl, by Mary Kubica: I've heard that this is si…

there's no place like home

Well, it's been a long week.

I mean long in the sense that I got home at 7:00 last night, after being away for work since Monday, and I immediately changed into some lounge wear.

And then I came down into the kitchen and Matt said, "Um, I think your sweatpants might be on backwards."


I left for my trip on Monday afternoon.  The rental car pickins were slim at Enterprise, so I went with a Ford Focus because I have a Ford Focus, so I wouldn't have to learn any tricky new radio knobs or windshield wiper controls.  I believe I fall squarely into the category of seasoned Ford Focus expert.

And then I drove the first 1.6 miles in the rental Focus in low gear.  It felt a little sluggish, but it didn't even occur to me to check and make sure the right gear was selected until I went to shift it into "park" at the gas station and realized the gear shift was on L.

The rest of the drive was problem free, and when I settled into my r…

and i was the english major

My brother and sister and I have a group text, and it really gets busy during election season.  Last Monday, as the Iowa caucus results came it, let's just say there were a lot of corny jokes.

It was a-maize-ing.

I knew the group text would be busy on Saturday night because of the Republican debate, but I didn't realize we would be discussing such controversial topics.

Can't wait until convention season.
