See Ya Summer

The weather is getting cooler, we made the first fire of the season in the pit a few days ago. Maybe a little too early but we have Fall Fever. Alex and I are starting the Couch-to-5K running plan on Monday since the temp has dropped. I am so excited that he is doing it with me. I have the best husband in the world (aww)

Rachael's birthday is Monday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY RACH! We went out for Indian food last night to celebrate and then I beat her in a game of Soc and Ticket to Ride as a birthday gift. Just Kidding! That wasn't your gift :-)

Also, I want one of these! I think I want to get the Betty 1, as a tribute to my Nana.

I was searching here for a two player set up for SoC and I came across this photo. That guy is so lucky! I have been planning a patchwork project, this is going in Ye Olde Inspiration Journal.

Late Labor Day Post

I've been really busy and I almost forgot that I promised Neighbor Mark that I would post the results of the 1st Annual Greer Labor Day Croquet Invitational.

Congrats, Mark on your first place victory! Next year will be even better and no one will be admitted without proper croquet attire (ahem...Shaylan)

Smack, crack, bushwhacked

A couple of months ago, Alex and I bought a new Jeep Wrangler. It's supposed to be our fun car that we share and that isn't practical but is all about Alex and Amy. We have had a lot of fun and sweated a lot this summer riding around with the top off. Last weekend, the Jeep tried to escape. It rolled down the driveway, through a fence, and into a creek across the street.

The shop is estimating that its going to take two weeks to repair. I hear that two weeks in body shop language is actually several months to the average driver. We'll see. . .
