On the mind...

Its Fall and I love it! {other then my awful allergies} I love Fall and everything about it. Pumpkin might just be one of my favorite things in the world... pumpkin smells, pumpkin food, pumpkin latte, and even pumpkins themselves. I have started decortating for Fall but seriously have been so busy I don't think I have been home other then to sleep. I sure hope thats going to change soon because I am ready for some lazy days around my home.

So whats been going on lately......

* Well I have had some serious baby fever. I sometimes wonder if thats all in my head or if it means I am ready to have one. hmmm...   It might just be that I love reading and looking at all you cute little Mamas stories and pictures. I have always been a baby lover and I just keep thinking I want a baby NOW. But I think I wil hang on and wait another year or so. It also doesn't really help that Brandon always has baby fever. I think he was ready years ago... lol! He is 28 and I am 26... I think he is afraid of being super old before we have them. hehe... don't worry B I won't make you wait much longer.
Oh and my older sister Lindsey who has never really had baby fever before has it bad now... but not for her, for me. haha! She even has an album on pinterest name "Aunt Lindsey". I love it though because she is super creative and I know she will be a great Aunt.

*Also, I have really really thought about what I am suppose to do lately. What career path should I pursue? Should I go back to school? Should I teach? Should I pursue law school which is want I always wanted in colllege? But as I get older I think more about than just a big career, a big house, nice cars, etc. I think about being with my kids as much as possible, having freedom in my job, and less stress in my life. I have prayed and prayed about it and just still can't seem to know for sure. I think it will come to me in time but sometimes I feel like time is flying by and I am just waiting. (and I know that won't get me anywhere)

*Brandon and I recently purchased 3 acres of land to build a house on one day. The land was owned by his grandpa and has beautiful views and a pond on it. Well B is ready to build, he wants to build a garage appartment right now and then sell our house and live in the garage apartment while we build. But I am kind of torn... do I stay in my home now (that I love) and have a baby in this house. or do I start building? Also... this would be our forever home so no moving since its by family. What if one day I wanted to move away? I don't think that will happen because I am a huge family person and always want to be by family but just what if.. what if an opportunity arises one day and we move... hmm a lot to think about huh.

I've just had a lot on my mind lately... nothing bad though. Thanks for listening  ( ;

Well on a lighter note... I think I am going to go dark with my hair again. I have been dark before and keep going back to blonde. But I need a hair change BAD. So dark it is...i think. If I don't like it I can easily go back to blonde. So this is to be continued....

A couple weekends ago Brandon and I went to St. Louise for a short get away. We had a great weekend. We flew there friday night and flew home late sunday night. We went to a Cardinals game on saturday and a Rams game on sunday. We shopped and ate at several awesome places and went to the zoo. We plan to go back a couple more times this year, its a nice getaway that's not too far away.

Kenzie the baby elephant with her Mama and Grandma. She is 3 months old, weighs 350lbs.

                     The St. Louis Zoo was amazing. and FREE. Best zoo I have ever been too.

Well I am starting a little chapter in my blog... all about my sisters. They are such a HUGE part of my life so I figured I would tell you all about them. Each sister will get one post... probably starting with the youngest. So check back soon so meet my sisters ( :

Have a great week!! Thanks for reading ( :

Hey Lace! You have lots of time for parenthood! But I will say there's never a perfect time to have one, we could all think of a reason to wait a little longer. I'm sure when you guys decide to have one it'll be great! Good luck on building a house. That will be so fun for you guys! :) Oh and the career thing---I'm right there with you---time with our precious babies is most important. They grow up way too fast! Follow your passion, you won't regret it! :)
