Fall Festivals

My dad is not so keen on the idea of 'Halloween' so we do not do it, but this year, (tomorrow) we are going to help out at a fall festival. We will be painting faces! I am very excited! I did it at the 5k, last Saturday. We had the option to dress up and my sisters and I decided we would. Lauren will be and Egyptian princess, Abby- Minnie Mouse, and myself- a Tiger. I am really excited! It is for an elementary school and there are supposed to be raffle contests, food, costumes and more! Lauren and my mom got me tiger ears, a tiger print bow, and a tail at Wally world. (It came in a set) I am going to have my face painted with whiskers, and a black nose.

Some time this month (I can not believe Oct. is almost over! AHHH! Christmas seems right around the corner!) my family, and a some good friends of ours will be having a fall party. We have done it for as long as I can remember. We make a pina'ta eat home cooked foods, have candy hunts ;0 and just hang out. Our traditional game is 'Dictionary.' (OR Balderdash- same thing)

Right now for school I am trying to finish reading 'The Red Badge of Courage.' It is the most boring book. (Actually Billy Budd was worse) Anyways, pray that I get through it....And understand it, I have to write a paper on it, and if I do not understand the book, I can assure you that the paper will not be that great either! ;)

Have a great weekend!

Fun Run!

My church started a running program to help support our food bank. They do it once a year. There is a Fun Run (1 mile) and a 5k. I did the fun run. It was VERY cold today, and I felt like my hands would probably fall off! ;)

Here is a set I made on Polyvore!
It was great! I think I came in somewhere between 10th and 15th out of 100 people.

After the races where over I helped doing some face painting! It was a blast! I painted an alien, zebra, 3 butterflies, two hearts, and a soccer ball. All the little kids were so precious! I got a pink & orange tree painted on my face! AWW!!!

It was great and our Church raised $15,000 for the food bank. I can't wait until next year! Maybe I will practice and do the 5k! YIPPIE!!
Have a great weekend!

On Sunday we went to my grandmas house. She was sick on my birthday and could not make it for my birthday lunch. ;( She made us a wonderful lunch of....

chicken and brie croissants
butter beans, & corn
brownies with raspberries and ice cream

She gave me my very first pair of tiny diamond stud earrings. I am thrilled! I didn't expect it. She also gave me some Dove dark chocolate! YUM!!

My coffee travel mug also came Sunday! My two best friends gave it to me at church.

I know- my monogram is backwards but I took the picture on my computer, and if I had flipped it, the 'R' would have been upside down. IT also came with a really cute pink and green background as well! I love them both so much! THANKS EVERYONE!!

One very busy day

WOW!! I am so extremely tired. Today has lasted a millennium! Well to begin I got up at like 7:00AM and we went to help out with the child care. We did not know the bride or the groom, but my friend knew them and they needed help with it. At about 11:00 we went home and cleaned up like crazy. It sure is a shocker how messy your house can get in 2 days! HA! After that we went to Athena's Greek Restaurant and got Chicken souvlaki which was amazing!!

At 3:30PM my sister, Abby and I, went to babysit for some friends. Our Womens Bible Study had an auction not long ago, and our friends signed up to host ______________ a dinner party for 12 people. We took care of their two kids, Annie Catherine & Marie. They are so precious! Annie has bleach blonde hair and blue eyes, while Marie has dark brown curly short hair, dark skin, and brown eyes. (They are both adopted, I think that is AMAZING!) They are so cute together and are both almost 3 years old. We babysat them while their parents hosted the party, and after we put them to bed we helped in the kitchen, and washing dishes. The dinner was MARVELOUS!! It must have taken forver! Everything was homemade and nothing came out of a box!

-Potato Salad with scallions
- tossed romaine salad with roasted brown sugar pecans, mandarin oranges, and a red wine/olive oil vinegarette
-Pumpkin soup
-pulled pork
-marinated grilled chicken legs
-water chesnuts rapped in bacon and grilled
-Lemon bars
-Raspberry bars with fresh raspberries, and REAL whipped cream
-smores bars

yummmy!! I was so glad that we got to be a part of helping them out. Their backyard looked gorgeous!
-Tiki torches
-White tent with the table underneath
- chairs around a fire pit
-A table for the food
-Christmas lights

It looked even more wonderful when it was late and all the Christmas lights were on.
But I am very tired now!

One more random thing- Find me on polyvore! monogrammedprep

Fair Entries

I did pretty well at the Fair. I got 1st place on my apron, 2nd on my molasses crinkles, 3rd on my scones, and 3rd on my plate. My postcard collection and my earring rack didn't win anything. ;( Oh well.

Anyways it is really dreary outside and it is making me tired. Yesterday my mom made some chai tea and I made another batch of molasses cookies. It was very nice, and it made it feel more like fall.

I am today I am wearing my scarf (previous post) a purple long sleeved shirt, jeans, and rain boots. I am still trying to find some warm fall/winter shoes. I usually wear flats, but they make your feet really cold (It looks ridiculous to wear socks with them) and my brown ones had to be thrown away. I would get Danskos but they are expensive and my feet are probably not done growing yet. Any suggestions?
