The Pumpkin Patch

I love going to local pumpkin patches to pick out my pumpkins every year.

Especially when a storm is rolling in :)

All of October is Halloween

This is my favorite time of the year...
a time for pumpkins and PSLs,
for apple cider and donuts,
for beautiful fall leaves and crisp fall air,
and for all things creepy!

FINALLY! That update I mentioned forever ago!

Ok! So I've been a bit MIA lately...
but with many, many reasons, some exciting, some really crappy,
which I will now share!

Let's start with the biggest one first,
I've been feeling really awful lately... for the last, oh,
19 weeks to be exact.
Seriously awful.
Vomiting, nausea, can't sleep awful...
because I have one of these on the way!
(This is NOT my baby, this is my niece)
This will be my first kid...
so I had no idea what to expect from pregnancy,
and so far, it's been a terrible roller coaster of illness.
I'm still waiting for that "glowing" stage, lol!
Yay? :)

Second, we're trying to move.
(pic above is in the old, crappy house we're renting)
Nothing like piling on the stress when you're pregnant, right?
We are in the process of closing on a new house,
and packing up our old house.
We're really hoping to kiss the old house goodbye before it snows.

Third, my car recently got totaled by a deer...
and since we're buying a new house,
I can't get a new car until that process is done.
(The home loan folks HIGHLY recommend no big purchases while trying to buy a house)
That was a highly stressful event that has been a real pain in the butt.
On the plus side, my car insurance, Progressive, did an AWESOME job at helping me out
and taking care of everything.

Fourth, we went on vacation to Disney and Universal,
which was AWESOME...
except I got food poisoning at Disney and was hospitalized,
which, being pregnant, was pretty scary.
Thanks, Disney -_-

We also went to Savannah, Georgia... which is a very cool old town.

So... yeah... hectic, crazy and filled with "morning" sickness
(morning is a lie, it's morning, noon and night sickness for me)

My plan is to get back into the swing of things this week!
So long as nothing else too crazy happens!!!!

Adventurers Club: October

It's a new month, therefore, time for a new ADVENTURE!!!!
Welcome, Adventurers!
October Theme:

October is a spooky month,
a time when ghouls and ghosts
roam in the night,
when zombies walk and witches fly.
So now would be the perfect time
for our little doll and toy friends
to sneak outside and have an adventure
There are new ways to share your Adventures!
Join the Flickr group: The Adventurer's Club
(Monthly Theme icons will be posted there as well)
Or, if you have a blogger account,
let me know the email attached to it,
and I will add you as an author to the Adventurers Club
blogger blog!

Perhaps you're new to the Adventurer's Club...
Would you like to join the Adventurer's Club?
"What is it?" you ask?
The Adventurer's Club is a monthly photo challenge.
The "theme" for the month is vague enough that you can complete the task indoors if you're not a "drag your dolly out in public" kinda person.

On the FIRST DAY of every month, I will reveal that month's theme.

There will be participation prizes...
these will be given out on a "number of months participated" basis.
There will be a 6 month and 12 month participation prize.

The months will be cumulative, because I know life happens and sometimes we might miss a month.
Although I'm thinking I might have to make an extra special prize for anyone who participates for 12 months straight!

January is a "wild card"... since I put this one up so late, you can complete this one at any time throughout the year.
If you would like to participate in the January Adventure, please do!

You can find the theme on the Adventurer's Club tab, here:
Don't feel like you have to have a masterpiece photograph either,
snap the shot with your cell phone, a point and shoot or a pro camera,
it doesn't matter, just as long as the resulting image is theme related!

How do you participate?
1. Take your photo that relates to the theme
2. Share that photo with me (via email, posting a comment with a link, etc), on our Flickr Group:
  or by tagging me, @littlebearries on Instagram!
(In the righthand side bar at the top of the page, you will see a link button back to this post)
My email is:

Please feel free to include a little caption for your image that describes what is going on, as well as any link to your own blog or website, and your doll's name, if these are things you'd like to share!
