I love Tuesdays. I have work and no school, which means I get to catch up with laundry, cleaning, etc. which I actually really enjoy. We're really happy because my grandparents are in town right now. Most people know this, but they basically spend their lives (literally) traveling the country (also literally) as all of their 8 kids are in different states (OK, two are in one state, but you get the point). The other night Taylor was telling me he missed my grandparents so he posted on their FB wall (and yes, they have Facebook. Awesome, right?) and said that he missed them and that they should come visit. About an hour later my mom texted me to tell me my grandparents were in town! Super funny and perfect timing. We've been having a lot of fun spending time with them and enjoying their amazing food.
|This is my FAVORITE. I'll have to post the recipe some time.|

I'm still sort of in denial that it's fall. I keep thinking it's July. However, I was so excited to finally wear a new pair of boots that I bought in the summer when they were on sale.
|My new fav. boots!|
Speaking of pictures, we got family photos taken! They were taken by the lovely Lizzy of http://lizzyjeanphotography.com/ took them when my sister Nicole and her family was still in town.
|Meet Leo...the cutest boy ever who happens to be my nephew.|

|The men. This picture makes me really excited for my dad to meet Tay, Glen, and Leo one day :)|
|My mom and Leo. I love this. They make each other so happy :)|
So life is good. We've also been making a lot of cookies because we have a lot of butter for some reason (that reason is that my husband loves Costco almost as much as he loves me)...so let me know if you want cookies!
P.S. bear with me as I try to update/make changes to my blog and the layout. It'll probably be changing little by little. It's been kind of complicated lately!
