Currently Vol 4

Monday, September 29, 2014

Thinking about: This past weekend we went to a Civil War reenactment in Pilot Knob, Missouri. It was my first time attending a reenactment, but Sam has been participating in reenactments with his dad since he was 12. He started out as a drummer boy and at this reenactment he was a 1st Sgt.


I'm not really sure what I expected, but I was pretty surprised by how many women were wearing period costumes. I love the idea of dressing up, so now I'm searching for costumes on eBay.

Thankful For: The time with family over the weekend. Sam's sister and her family, and Sam's mom and I all stayed at a hotel together for the reenactment. It's rare that we're all together.


Loving: Nephew Nathaniel! He's 20 months and at such a fun age now! He's starting to talk and his personality is just so sweet! Watching him and Finn play together was the cutest thing ever! Occasionally he would give Finn kisses!
Nathaniel was fascinated with the photos inside of my locket.

Wearing: I've seen several bloggers talking about the new Sally Hansen Miracle Gel polish, so I decided to give it a try. Here it is after 1 week and 2 days:
 
Favorite photos:
Top left: we went to the Celebration Dinner Series at The Marketplace Cafe. This month's ingredient was peaches. Sam and I were already full after the salad course - we didn't pace ourselves very well. We'll have to do better next time! Next month is pumpkin, so of course we're going to that one!
Top right: I baked a lot for a work luncheon: salted caramel pecan pie, pumpkin streusel pie, and pumpkin chocolate chip bundt cake.
Bottom Left: Finn had so much fun at day care!
Bottom Right: On Friday, we went to Elephant Rocks State Park in Graniteville, MO, with Sam's family before Sam and his dad headed off to the reenactment.

  1. Hi! I am coming to you from the link-up at A Mama Collective. I had to read your blog since your title uses alliteration just like mine! I think dressing up in time period would be awesome. I hope you find something you like for next time!
