We were out at Eric's parents house the other day just hanging out with "the fam" and I love to be outside...but we had already taken a walk and couldn't think of anything else to do...until my father-in-law had the wonderful idea to let me drive his lawn mower!! Funnest day ever!! I was quite the country girl..although, I wasn't actualy mowing...just riding. But it was fun and it actualy went pretty fast! (at least it felt fast, Eric said I was only creeping along but I felt like I was zooming all over the place.)
Last year Andrew, Jenn and I (eric's sister and brother) were in the same state of bored-ness and had the great idea of riding a bike and pulling an old computer chair behind it. (it had wheels) That was also the funnest day ever! They live way out in the country in a beautiful neighborhood but there we were acting like 11 year olds...one of us riding on the bike and the other was the poor ginea pig being pulled at warp speeds in the computer chair. There were a few major crashes but we love to remember the good times in the old computer chair. (which by the way, didn't make it past that one fateful day- wheels were flying off as we skidded down the road)
I hope no one is reading this and thinking how immature I am...well, I'm sure you are, but think of it this way- Malak is going to have the best parents ever! We will always have a little adventure to go on or crazy times with "the fam"! I can't wait to do random fun things with him...I love him.
I am so glad fall is here! I have been waiting and waiting and now that it is officialy here it is still rediculously hot here in Oklahoma City and no sign of fall type weather in the near future. In OKC there are 2 seasons- Summer, which is so hot you want to shrivel up and die and Winter, which is so bitter cold that no amount of layers will protect you from the horrific wind. Oh, and I guess there is a week or 2 in Spring and Fall when we have normal weather and you can leave the house and not be frightened of death by freeze or fire. All that being said it is Fall and I am glad and it makes me happy. Pumpkin bread, spicey candels burning, crispy leaves, crispy weather (well, for a few days), we get to bust out our cozy sweaters and most of all, I love decorating for fall! I made the wreath (above) last year and thought I would share with you how easy it is to make- incase you need to do it yourself! I went to the craft store and bought a grapevine wreath (they are the brown wreaths that are just made of sticks) theyre super cheap, just a few bucks. Then I glued a fall leaf garland on the front of it. (just use hot glue to attatch everything) I also bought a few little extras to go into it- red berries and some fruit and glues those in. (they sell those just as little picks that are about 1 dollar each) And that is it! It is even easier than the letters that I made for Malak's room- I promise you don't have to be crafty to make this cute fall decor! And it looks so awsome and festive on our front door!
