October 2014

i must mention what a KILLER season the bulldogs and the rebels had.  we were a house full of proud mississippians.

we like thumbs up.  
and "helping" mommy exercise.

daddy's 37th birthday was October 9.
he got a few things he wanted

and a requested meal

and a weekend trip to the big apple!
thank you Hess Family for keeping our kiddos!

we took the staten island ferry early saturday morning.
after a yummy brunch we went on a fascinating two hour walking tour of chinatown, little italy, and greenwich village.  

the weather started out rainy, but cleared up pretty quickly.  
we got a private tour bc nobody else showed up!

mid-afternoon snack, then back down to the hotel to watch some sec football.
State beat Auburn 38 - 23

late dinner  -- korean bbq at Kristalbelli.  one of the best meals we've ever had.  
then back to the hotel in time to watch the second half of the ole miss game.  
the rebels beat the aggies 35 - 20.  it was a GREAT DAY!!!

brunch sunday morning at mercer kitchen in soho.  you could see people walking above us on the sidewalk.  very cool atmosphere and wonderful food.  more roysters!

we even got to see our friends caroline and andy and floyd before we headed back to jersey.

back on fort dix...
we are within walking/bike riding distance to some really cool static displays

i'm loving the bible study my friends and i are doing on 1st and 2nd Thessalonians
and i love my fireplace.  :-)

laurel was super shy the morning we dropped her off at theater camp.
the picture on the right was from when we picked her up - and she asked if she could go next year, or every saturday. 

freddy's first rainbow??  no way...

freddy enjoys mama's cooking.  ha!
he did great at the dentist.

already cold in jersey.  the blur in the bottom right corner of the picture is pretty accurate!

i ran away for a weekend in south carolina with my furman girls
(and chuck-head)

caroline made us these awesome t shirts!

LOOK at this beautiful house chuck and caroline just finished renovating!

breathtaking views of lake murray

F.U. all the time!

no filter.  just glorious.

meanwhile, back at home...

i LOVE caroline's new house!

she recently sent me a picture of her latest project.  i love her style!

we have known each other for over half our lives...

can't wait till next year!!!

back at home, our new favorite piece of art :-)

laurel showing some air force spirit, daddy showing off his new favorite beer, and freddy wearing a hardhat to the commissary because why not?

my boy and a worm.  i love this.

i don't know - wacky wednesday?  
i had to wear purple and gold (yuck!) bc i am a good sport and LSU beat ole miss.  

#3 gone

happy halloween!

my two super heros 

princess elsa had to go to the dentist between school and trick-or-treating.  
perfect timing if you ask me!

we trick-or-treated in grove park 

and then hung out with charlie brown and all our other friends down at the hesses' firepit
