Finally Fall

Fall finally decided to show up in Mississippi this weekend. It was gorgeous and sunny Saturday and Sunday with lows in the low 50’s and highs in the 70’s. For our third year and a row, my dad took Emma Kate to the classic car show in our city and out to lunch at McAlisters. This year was the most challenging because last year she was just learning to walk and the year before she was only a month old!




How cute is this display?



It’s fun to walk around a free event checking out all the cars. It helps when the weather is beautiful! We are all about free things to do.


There were rows and rows of classic cars of all different colors.


We walked over to McAlisters and sat outside for lunch before walking over to our yogurt shop for dessert.


Saturday night we had a fall get together with our life group from church. It was at my friends house who lives down the street, so we just walked over. We had chips and dip, chili, soup, and caramel apples. Emma Kate had a blast playing with all the other kids. I didn’t take any photos, but if you saw my Instagram story then you saw Emma Kate wipe out on some playground equipment (she was fine).

Then some friends came over and watched part of the LSU/Ole Miss game. I went to bed at 11:00 because the game didn’t start until 8:15, so it was way past my bedtime.

Sunday we went to church and then had the annual fun fest at our church. It’s a free community wide event with games, candy, and lots of fun!

How adorable is she?!?


We went in the bouncy house about five times, watched the puppet show, and helped with the photo booth. She slept like a rock that night!


It was our third year at fun fest and it is something I will definitely miss when we move.


QOTD: Do you go to any community or church fall events?

October 2016 Goals


Hey guys! Already into another month! I must say, even thought it’s October it doesn’t feel very fall-ish around here. We had a couple of days of temps in the 80’s, but otherwise we are still in the low 90’s with the heat index. This however hasn’t … [Continue reading]

Emma Kate: Two Years Old
