Hey there chickadees!
And Happy Weekend to the masses.
I spent this morning drinking coffee, buying a half dozen mini-pumpkins at the market (who doesn’t need mini-pumpkins in bulk?) as encouraged by Ky, who happens to be a gourd-aholic, hanging with JW and my brother, and getting ready to head over to my parents’ for my dad’s 50th birthday party tonight.
Check out my dad, just a few short years ago.
In other news, it is an extremely beautiful fall day in this neighborhood, as evidenced from my favorite tree, which I snapped on my way home from my travels this morning.
It’s a shame winter has to come right after fall- it’s always such a sad turn of events when the leaves are gone and we’re stuck inside until April.
It’s also a beautiful day to eat the ridiculous menu my mother’s put together and drink Sam Adams Oktoberfest out of something called a “beer ball.”
I’ll keep you posted on what that actually looks like, since I’ve never had the pleasure of purchasing one of these before.
Yesterday, I spent the day hanging with my grandparents and mom, and we made a quick, windy stopover at Wrigley Field to purchase gear (20% off- of course, since we ended the season on a pitiful note), and check out the field.
And with that, I’m off to get my gear in place and get ready for a night of good times and celebration.
Enjoy the sunshine if you’ve got it, chicks!
