Welcome November! How have you been? I haven't seen you in a year. My favorite month. The month of my anniversary, I'll be another year older, & the Fair. I've always had great memories from the fair which starts this weekend. I can't wait to bring Alexis and make new memories. It's been quite busy. We've cleaning cleaning out everything. Saturday was supposed to be our yard sale, but we got rained out, so we changed it to this Saturday. Which ment a nice relaxing weekend with my family of 3. I have barely picked up my camera because I've been so bummed about the delay in getting my new one. It's made me photo depressed. HOPING it's here next week. Jon launched my new website last week. He designed it., I'm really pleased with how it's turned out. Way better than my last.

I mentioned before that I was on a low carb diet. Which is working out great. I tried making a low-carb pizza last night, but it was awful. We've been on it for 3 weeks now and I've lost 12lbs. Back to my pre-pregnancy weight and can now start working on the rest.

We're still battling our ant problem. I read they don't like pepermint, which is great because it's kid safe. That got rid of them on my counter tops. Now, they're coming in and all over the floor. I keep spraying it and cleaned the floor with peppermint oil, but they're still here. I can't wait for the really cold weather and the ants leave and then I can take action, so they don't come back.

Alexis is teething. One molar has come in. I can only imagine how it makes her feel. Poor little girl. She turns 15 months tomorrow :) Her 15 month well, is in 2 weeks and more shots :(
She's a great little walker though. And is usually pretty happy about 90% of the time. I may be babysitting for a friend on Thursday, who has 2 boys- ages 18 months and 3 years. I know they'll keep me busy!

8 Wonderful Comments:

  1. I love the new website. I checked it out earlier this week. I am so bummed that your camera is not there yet. When you do get it you will be even that much more excited (if possible).
    The ants are probably coming in more due to the rain.
    I didn't know your birthday was in November. mine too. When is yours? I can guarantee I am much older than you.
    I eat low carb, too. It is the only way I can keep weight off.

  2. I am sorry about the ants. That has to be crazy stressful! We get them at certain times of the summer. I don't know where they come from. It's like one morning I wake up and they are everywhere! EEEK!

    We must be totally opposite about new cameras. When I get a new one, it takes me MONTHS to start using it. I just get so accustomed to shooting with my regular camera and I do not want to switch. I usually wait until my camera just about breaks before I start.

  3. Sounds like November is going to be an exciting month for you!

    That's really gross about the ants. Last summer we had ants in our downstairs bathroom and it drove my husband NUTS. We ended up calling an exterminator because he was so stressed out about it and then promptly rechaulked the floor.

    Hurrah for a new website! I'm thinking of making myself one - who is hosting yours?

  4. We had ants one year... man I hated that. With out tomato garden this year we battled fruit flys all summer long. Hope your camera hurries - I hate waiting for stuff like that.

  5. Such great shots. Hope your ants go away soon. Sorry about your camera too. Going to check out your new site.

  6. uhh, I can't imagine having a delay to receive my new camera - I practically stalked the UPS tracking website until mine arrived :)

  7. Your photography site is wonderful!! I love it. =)

    Hope your camera comes very soon!

  8. Go away ants!! I love knowing these small details of your life.
