Fri-YAY!

What a crazy week this has been. Have I been saying that a lot recently? It feels like I have. It's been a bit of a stressful week in my world. Luckily after this Sunday's game (when my Bengals will advance to 5-0!) I'll get a bit of a break at work and hopefully be able to catch up on every other thing in my life that seems to be a mess right now. I say it all the time but seriously... how do people DO it all?!

Speaking of doing it all- the Pink Ribbon Luncheon that I attended yesterday? Phenomenal. I've went a few times but this might have been my favorite year yet. Robin Roberts is an inspiration for so SO many reasons and it was awesome to hear her speak. The theme was "Paint the Town Pink" and there were dozens of local artists painting there and auctioning off their items for charity. We got to take home little miniature paintings of various Cincinnati landmarks- talk about a cool souvenir! 

In other happies... the sunrises and sunsets have been incredible lately. The early mornings are rough after working so many days in a row but at least it's colorful and inviting on my way into work :) I stopped in the middle of the parking lot at Kroger to snap this- it was too beautiful not to capture!

This weekend despite some hours at the office, Jared and I are making time to visit one of our favorite local farms to pick out pumpkins, get lost in corn mazes and just enjoy some gorgeous weather outdoors together. Bring on the fall-ness and the fun! :) Happy weekend everyone!

  1. It sounds like y'all have the perfect fall weekend planned! That's one thing that we've never done during the fall, go to a farm and pick out pumpkins, even though there are some in our area.

  4. The sunrise on my drive to work is my absolute favorite. At one point I cross over a lake & it always looks so perfect. If I weren't on a bridge on the freeway I'd totally stop to take a picture.

  5. Happy weekending friend! I love the fact that I get up before the sun and can catch the sunrise on the way to taking a couple of youth to school (and then work). It just always starts my day off just right :)

  11. That's an awesome souvenir! That sunrise is gorgeous, but I must admit that I don't envy you too much being up that early. ;) I'm digging that positive thinking with the Bengals. I won't know what to do with myself if we start the season 5-0. Have so much fun this weekend! FALL IS HERE!
