Life's Little Moments: September Edition

October has arrived! That sounds so crazy. I just cannot believe it is here but I am SO excited! I am so ready to pull out the scarves and boots, drink hot chocolate, carve pumpkins and cuddle under a cozy blanket...October, so glad you are here! 

September was a great month. A month of truly missing my husband but a fabulous month full of sweet, sweet times with family and friends.

 On the 9th, I celebrated my birthday! We had a little celebration with family, it was low key and so wonderful. Roberto sent me the most beautiful flowers. I sure do love that man. 

I had a lot of fun this month working on my handwriting. Man, there is soo much to learn. But it is fun to work on during my spare time!

I also did another Whole 30 this month. And have truly loved it this time {check out my last Whole 30 experience here}. I have been doing it with my mom and step-dad and it has been going great. Hard days for sure, but the perks of it are just amazing. Our last day is Thursday and I am really wanting to keep this up, maybe like 80/20. Last time, when Rob and I did it, we did a pretty awful job and keeping up the lifestlye because of traveling and such. So this time I am determined! I will not lie though I sure am craving chocolate chip pancakes!

 I did a little shopping this month and got some great fall/winter clothes! I definitely needed a few more items, especially before I head to Poland at the end of this month. Banana Republic, Target and Dillards never disappoint and have some super cute items right now. I took this picture to show the husband what I got, and thought it turned out cute! The green shirt and booties are from Dillards and the rest from Banana.{And this is my little sister's bed. Isn't it adorable?? Love the bright colors!}

 I babysat three of my favorite kiddos for a few days this month. We had a great time hanging out, playing around the house and enjoying a Tech football game!

The husband has been working so hard over in Poland. Lots of practicing and lots of scrimmages, more on that tomorrow!

I have gotten to spend lots of time with this little bug and her big sister. Makes my heart so happy!

One weekend lots of my family and I enjoyed a cousin's wedding. It was so great and so beautiful. Plus, getting to spend time with extended family? The best. 

Love these four babies. It gets a bit crazy but moments I will forever treasure. So grateful I am getting to spend so much time with them.

Christmas is up at Hobby Lobby. My heart skipped a beat! 

This past weekend we celebrated this beautiful bride as she married her love! Such an amazing weekend with friends.

Love that my sweet mama and sister were able to come the wedding, we had so much fun!

The sweetest husband sent me a beautiful bracelet. The same bracelet I had bought three days prior. Great minds think alike?? I felt so bad! He was trying to be sweet and I messed it all up. But this note...means even more than the bracelet. 

The other night, I was organizing my recipe book and getting it all ready to take over to Poland with me. I found a few recipe boxes from long ago, and found these beauties inside...

Recipes I wrote in elementary school. One summer I spent lots of time cooking and learning recipes with my wonderful grandmothers and Nanny I (like my grandmother). I have so many sweet memories of that time and time in the kitchen in general with these amazing ladies. My Nanny I passed away a few summers ago, so it makes these little cards even more incredibly special. So treasured. It is time to start cooking! {Especially my nanny I's famous Mac and cheese!}

And getting to hangout with these cuties?? Brings me so much joy.

September, you were too good! Many memories, I want to always remember. 



  1. Wow, that's a busy September!!! Looks like lots of fun things... I love that your husband sent you the same bracelet you bought!! And how cute are those recipe cards?! I refuse to believe you wrote those letters. AMAZING girlie!!

  2. Are you learning calligraphy or something? The handwriting is absolutely beautiful. Is it hard to learn?


  3. Aaaand now I have to stop at Hobby Lobby today :) Looks like it was a wonderful month and so soon you'll be reunited with your man! Yay!

  4. Hobby Lobby throws up Christmas so early....
    I want to start the 80/20 thing myself. Going to research it all today :)

  5. I was so excited about Hobby Lobby as well!!! I can't wait for Christmas everywhere!

  6. Wow, what an exciting month for you. And I LOVE those booties on the bed! Wish I had a Dillard's near me!

  7. Love the recap of your month and all the fun times with friends and family. I know your missing your cute hubby, but it's also so nice to be able to cherish this time at home. I love your new bag you bought too!!

  8. September was so sweet to you!! Love your handwriting!

  9. what a great month you had indeed!! october will be hard to beat :-)

  10. I love your blog and so glad I found it tonight. I'll have to check out this Whole 30 thing. It sounds like something I need to get into. I've been doing clean eating--I'm guessing it deals with that--for the last 2 weeks and would love to see recipes and what other people are eating.

  11. What a great month with wonderful memories! Your handwriting is beautiful!


I would love to hear from you!
