thank you

 thanks everyone for sharing your comments and excitement!
jake and i are giddy to say the least.
we are anxiously waiting baby morse's arrival.
but in the meantime...

it's halloween!!!
my favorite holiday.
(not just cause my birthday is the day before...)
i love everything about this holiday.
decorations are up, pumpkin spice candles are going, and I already broke into the "trick-or-treat" candy.
i'm set.

now to figure out a costume for a preggers girl....
happy haunting everyone!

fall's my favorite

cause it brings out all the stuff i love:

hot chocolate,
football games,
 pumpkin everything,
candy corn,
and number one on my list: the changing leaves.
(that's why i chose my bridals for october.)

goodbye summer.
hello first day of fall.

cupcakes and brownies

we finally went to The Chocolate.
it's this cute little house on state street that serves cookies, cupcakes, brownies, and cake.
my kinda place.

i've been wanting to go there for a very long time.
finally, a free weekend came and we went!

we thought about taking our goodies home,
but the house is so cute and vintage, we stayed.
i, of course, was tempted to ask the cashier where they got those chairs...

and the desserts were everything i was looking forward to.
jake got the german chocolate brownie
and i got the caramel top chocolate cupcake.

it was heaven.

tempting to return for a second night in a row...
but we will save The Chocolate for another night.
(it's now saved for special occasions.)

have you ever been to ruth's diner?

well, if you haven't you should go.
it's up immigration canyon,
dining is outside,
so it's beautiful. surrounded by trees and the mountain how could it not?
and the food is really good.

i'm thinking i wanna go up again as the leaves start changing...
food and fall leaves--my kind of restaurant.

but we definitely all have the same nose...

so happy that they are here.

happy weekend.

hi. i'm alive

it's been a crazy first two weeks of school.
(obviously as i have been out of touch.)
but amidst the craziness i've learned a few valuable things:

two alarms never hurt anyone.
lunch can be eaten at 2:00.
red pens do in fact multiply and replenish the earth.
jake doesn't know sign language. especially when he is asleep.
mouthing "watermelon" for the fight song isn't going to fly with student body officers in my class.
the polite response is, "no this is not my first year at high school, i'm the teacher."
it's nice to know there always is dessert waiting at home for me.

so fun learning valuable things.

here's to what tomorrow will bring.
(i'll let you know if i learn more.)
