Right now we are feeling the affects of Tropical Storm Debby. Lots and lots of wind & rain. Our chicken coop has a roof, and we’ve hung blankets to help shield the hens from the rain, but I just checked on them, and they are soaked. Both of my girls have a nasty cold, so we’ve spent the day lounging around, watching nature toss our tree limbs about, and being thankful that we still have our electricity. High-res

Rainy Days & Apologies

It has rained here in sunny Florida all afternoon. I think summer is having a hard time letting go. The girls and I took advantage of the gray afternoon, and had a much needed family nap.

I must apologize for the silence and lack of excitement around my little space as of late. Our wedding is only 3 weeks and a few days away, and I have been consumed with errands and meetings and to do lists that consist of things like must tell dj to put the Chicken Dance and Macarena on the DO NOT PLAY LIST.

In addition to our upcoming wedding which will be followed by a week long “familymoon”, I have been putting the finishing touches on Amelia’s upcoming fourth birthday party. I have invited all ten of her preschool classmates, (because I am a crazy person), and I recently rented a giant princess castle bouncy house for the entertainment, a.k.a potential trip to the E.R. Fingers crossed, nobody gets hurt.

Beau and I did manage to squeeze one last date in before our wedding madness this last weekend, and took a trip to Busch Gardens so we could do all of the things we normally can’t when we have the kiddos. The best part for me was when we saw a mama anteater carrying her baby on her back. Seriously adorable.

Also, I know I’m late to the game, but I went to Target yesterday, and managed to find a Missoni sweater for Maggie. There wasn’t much from the collection left, which was disappointing, but I really shouldn’t be spending money right now anyway with the wedding and vacation coming up. Here is the best photo I could find of the sweater.

Speaking of sweaters, I did manage to find time to decorate the house for fall. It’s amazing what a few plastic pumpkins can do for your mood. We will get our first cool down with dry air this weekend when our lows finally dip into the sixties. Perfect timing for our family picnic we have planned on Sunday.

I promise to be back soon with some new and fun posts. I missed doing a 16 month shoot with Maggie this month because we were busy having fun at the Magic Kingdom. I plan to snap some photos of her this week, she is doing all sorts of new things now. I also plan to do a complete overhaul of this site in November, and will do another contest for free ad spot on Modern Mommy just in time for the holidays.

I hope you all are enjoying these first few days of autumn. It is my very favorite time of year.
