Here are 2 outfits I wore last week.  My mom was so sweet & sent me a red jacket. It didn't fit the best, so I exchanged it for the leopard shoes. I have been on the hunt for leopard shoes. When I saw these I had to get them. Plus they were comfy.  The entire month of October I have worn pink ever single day. I decided to do a pink challenge in honor of breast cancer awareness. 

Orange & hot pink. Orange in honor of the Giants. Hot pink in honor of breast cancer. I am sad the black shoes I have in the picture above have run their course. I need to throw them away. I LOVE these shoes. They are from Naturalizer and are SUPER comfy. They are comfy and cute. Two words I don't usually associate with Naturlizer lol
I am not sure if I can even find a replacement that will come near the comfort of these darling shoes!

I never thought.....

One statement I never thought I would say at 31.

"I listened to a baseball game on the radio on my way home from my step daughter baby shower."

When we would go visit my grandparents grandpa was always listening or watching baseball. Ugh I HATED it!!! Anything but baseball.

I never watched or listened to a baseball game until I moved to CA. Now I'm a crazy Giants fan.

Now I'm just as crazy as grandpa listening & watching baseball. :)

My work computer has been acting up. I've been busy each night at home.

Menu Monday

Some how Monday morning sneaks up on me every week. Lately it's been hard to find time to blog on the weekends. Our weekends have been jam packed. The rest of October is looking busy too.

Look out for posts this week on the pumpkin patch, Amber baby shower from a couple weekends ago, OOTD, and whatever else I can round up.

I wasn't able to do any baking in the past 2 weeks. Indian summer hit and it was smokin hot. The last thing I wanted to do was turn my oven on. This week it is cooling off and feels more like fall. I'm hoping to make pumpkin bars!

This week our menu had
Cheesy chicken & rice
Chicken gnocchi soup
Corn & chicken soup
Steak tacos

I'm also going to make curry chicken to put on salads again. Mmmm it was so yummy!

Hope everyone has a fabulous week!!!!

Pinterest Knockoffs

I found the picture below on Pinterest. I LOVE IT!!!! I really like Fall and decorating for Fall. I decided to use what I had already and do my own version. 

Here is what I came up with from my Fall stash. 

I need to add something else.....I am sure I have another frame laying around I could throw into the mix. I also have some books I might add. 

Stay turned I might have a revision......
