time flies when you're having fun. (or are just super busy)
Saturdays should smell like clean.

goodbye to summer.

summer is wrapping up.  I can feel it in the air.  I believe we still have two more somewhat hot months ahead of us and I am glad for that!  Summer is definitely my favorite season and this summer was so great!  It seemed to fly by but when I think of all that has happened, it seems like summer lasted forever.  I am sad to say that I did not go fishing.  Not one single time did I sit in that boat and throw a line in the water!  I'm still not sure how this happened, but hey, there's always another day.  IMG_1264IMG_1234 IMG_1268

We went to the coast both weekends that Kevin was home and that was fun!  For my birthday, we went to The Blind Tiger in Bay St. Louis.  Adam and Katherine drove over from New Orleans to meet us there and we had a good time visiting and eating some yummy seafood!  The fish tacos were the bomb!  The next weekend, we went to Margaritaville with our friends and of course, we had a good time there as well.  My favorite thing to do there is to stand on the balcony and look over the back bay.  We could see the rain coming and it was pretty magical.  I tried to take some pictures of the six of us leaning over the balcony.  The blurry pictures are my favorite by far.  I love how we all look happy :) IMG_1291 IMG_1298 IMG_1312
I want to do a fall garden and my brother-in-law has agreed to help!  Side note: both my husband and his brother are pretty great.  I know we need to hurry and get the ground prepared.  Kendall is the tractor operator and I am the tractor watcher, lol.  I need to decide what to plant, I know for sure I want to plant pumpkins!  and maybe some snow peas?  What else can I plant in a fall/winter garden?  I'm sure I will find plenty of ideas.

Currently I've begun a late summer garden.  Jessica began some plants from seed but did not have the room to plant all of them so she gave them to me!  I've planted them in a plot of dirt where some of my chickens used to live.  I don't expect much out of them, but I am hopeful that I'll get at least a few tomatoes and/or jalapenos!  This is what my plot looked like when I planted the tomatoes last Saturday and then when I planted the jalapenos Tuesday!
