Total Basset Case: All Fall

Oct 14, 2013

All Fall

These weekends and the lure of Sunday snuggling are really getting the best of me. 

We had a weekend FULL of all things fall and I LOVED it. 

Friday after work Mister and I took Floyd on an extended walk around a lake near our house. 
 Although Floyd was pooped after, he loved it! All new scents and a plethora of new leaves to smell, it was his version of heaven.

Saturday Mister planned a fun day trip for us to Yellow Springs. I had been wanting to go there for a while now and it worked out perfectly because they had a street fair full of crafts and booths going on.  We had the best day walking around, trying local goodies (beer, coffee and pizza - yes in that order, we are strange) and just soaking up a gorgeous day.  We drove home with the windows open the whole way and had the best afternoon.

Saturday night we had the most delicious homemade pad thai (recipe coming later this week) and a fantastic wine we'd been saving from Casey.
Sunday we ventured to the pumpkin patch with Floyd in tow.  We have a tradition of taking him and this year was no different.  We took him out into the actual patch this year and he was in scent overload happiness.  It's a toss up if his nose was in the air sniffing or down on the ground sniffing more.  I'll have more of our pumpkin patch photo shoot with him on Friday.
 We picked up quite a few pumpkins and couldn't leave without caramel apples!  Well rounded lunch, right?

Sunday afternoon I ventured out on a pants hunt.  After many hours, many dressing rooms and a close call with throwing a fit in the middle of the mall out of frustration...I found ONE pair (on sale, thank goodness) at The Limited.  
I told you this may take me until next fall. 
I tried on and fell in love with these jeans at Nordstrom but couldn't justify the price.  Santa may see them appear on his list in a few weeks. 
The search continues.

As for pants shopping - I experience the same thing. Nothing puts me in a foul mood quicker than trying on pants...ugh.
