it finally feels like F A L L. pulling on sweatpants this morning in order to make my coffee was an exceptional way to wake up. as i drove to nanny, i could see the colors of fall creeping into the trees. leaves are falling as the wind blows. it's perfect. and i love it.

as you know, Adele pulled a ninja move on us an cancelled her concert sunday. sister and i made the trip to ATL anyways and it was quite better then expected. lunch at Houston's (always a crowd pleaser) and conversation on the couch always proves to encourage, motivate and challenge me. not to mention the company was far above any adele concert. we enjoyed laughs, breakfast for dinner, a roach named allen and a 24-hour gas station. needless to say, i am ready to go back to atlanta again.

this weekend auburn exceeded my expectations as well. they beat florida. and it wasn't a heart wrenching event. i was proud of the tigers and enjoyed not going into cardiac arrest at the end of the game. so war eagle to that.

stead ventured to auburn this weekend. i was pleased to see him on the plains, however not so pleased with his choice in colors. typical of a "the other team" fan i guess. kidding... he didn't wear crimson, just florida blue and green. either way, sister and i are going to have to work hard at getting him here. but it is a battle we are willing to take.

monday munchies didn't happen... neither did tasty tuesday. so i guess wonderful wednesday will have to suffice. here is something i found that i think is wonderful. we have two categories... food (shocking i know) and event in the news.

1. food. feast your little eyes on these two things...

these are Cheesy Lasagna Rolls with Spinach and Ricotta and they look SO GOOD. they are beautifully put together too. honestly, the recipe doesn't sound too difficult either. it's a new way to spice up an old favorite.

and now this... i realized i must really like this because i pinned it twice on Pinterest....

i mean how cute is that. it's individual, which makes everyone feel special. AND you can customize for each person if you wanted, which is something i love. i really want do these for something... so give me something to do them for!

2. news...

Parents Urged Again to Limit TV for Youngest

Watching TV while a parent is busy: Video screen time has no educational benefits for young children, a report says.

Found this article in the NY Times today... i agree with this. and, as you are well aware, i do not watch tv anyways... so yea. i thought this was interesting. not really "wonderful" but you get the idea...


looking forward to some new pictures from this weekend. NOLA and Baton Rouge could be a promising event for my nikon and me.

maybe i'll be brave enough to take the nikon to the game... we'll see.

until then....

a verse from my devotion today/last night

And he sat down and called the twelve. And he said to them, "If anyone would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all." Mark 9:35
