Weekend Smorgasboard of Happiness.

This past weekend was spent with family doing fun family things... and school.  I start out with Thursday, even though that's not a weekend.  Thursday is Introduction to Basic Chemistry 101.  My Chemistry professor is hilarious.  He has this nerdy, dry, awesome sense of humor that I can relate to.  During lecture he threw me off while discussing Lewis dot structures and bonds...
...Well, I thought it was funny.

Friday Dave and I took the kids to their school's Fall Festival.  It was a bit of fun.  I got Cotton Candy.  Yum.  Lindsey Hula Hooped and Brendan tried to shoot some hoops.  They got to run around, bounce around, and have a bunch of fun.
 Everyone who has seen this says that I look like one of the kids. ha.  Oh well. 

My mom's birthday was the 23rd.  What a perfect birthday.  The day after Fall arrives.  Fall is my favorite because of the colors, smells, pumpkins, apples, candy, halloween, thanksgiving, sweaters, and temperature.  Love this time of year.  Well, it was a perfect fall day to be at Silver Dollar City so that is what I did with my mom for her birthday.  No kids, just us.  Riding rides, eating free cowboy food, and riding whatever rides she wanted to ride.  It was a great day.
Here my mom was giving the "eeeek face" because we were about to get on Powder Keg
She loves thrill rides... me... I used to like them until I started freaking out about my mortality ha.
We had a blast.
I'm so happy it's fall/autumn whatever you want to call it.  My favorite time of year.  It's the best.  Time for this...
You know your favorite season has arrived when all things "pumpkin" start hitting the shelves.  When you can't afford Pumpkin Spice Latte's everyday, this stuff is a wallet saver.  I also bought a can of pumpkin and a carrot cake mix to make my favorite easy peasy pumpkin muffins.  I am going to make a streusel topping for them and see if that makes them even more fantastic.

Happy Autumn you all!  Woo hoo!


  1. Looks like yall had such a fun weekend! And just hearing about pumpkin muffins have now forced the decision that this needs to happen in my house ASAP. *drool* haha!

  2. Mmm! Pumpkin! Sounds yummy! Looks like you had a great weekend! :)

  3. Lewis dot structures were my favorite part of general chemistry. The rest I dreaded. It looked like you had an awesome weekend with your family. Fall is one of my favorite seasons because of all the food and the festivities but I am not a fan of the pumpkin spice drinks. I love pumpkin but not when it is associated with my coffee I would much rather have pumpkin pie than a pumpkin spiced latte.

  4. Pumpkin spice coffee mate?!?!? Too bad it'll be another 2 years or so before it hits our little town:( I love that picture of you in the yellow look amazing Amy!! I can see so much joy in your face and you!! xoxox
