Being Neighborly…

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

Today we actually got out and did something again.  We visited a co-worker of mine from work who also lives in Agawam.  Her and her wife have two kids–SO CUTE.  A handful though!  But it made me imagine what it might be like when we have kids 🙂  It was really nice to just sit and talk with someone and be neighborly for part of the day.

Other than that it was a pretty uneventful day.  I had a difficult time sleeping last night and was up by 6:30.  Sat and read on the couch for a few hours and then was on the computer until Kimm got up.  So of course that made me tired tonight and I took a 3 hour nap while Kimm watched her hockey game.

It RAINED all day long.  We have a mini lake going on in our driveway.  Izzy just went for a morning walk–that was quite a sight–the two of us and her with our umbrellas.  The coffee tasted extra good today because it was so blah outside.

Made black bean quesadillas and brown rice for dinner–holy yum.  And made up another batch of apple crisp which I am about to enjoy after I finish writing this post!

Here’s the loot from yesterday…


Sneakers…love the bit of orange


Slippers–super soft


Boots–waterproof and furry inside!


My key lime vest…wore it on the walk today–SUPER warm and cozy


Kimm’s navy vest (with my polka dot umbrella peaking out from behind)…


That pumpkin spice latte…DEFINITELY have to get another one before the season is over.

I predict that I will have to use my nasal spray before going to bed since I am completely stuffed up.  I am STILL fighting off this cold.  Sigh…

Tomorrow is dog training class…we’re both excited and hopeful that this will work.

Pumpkin Spice Latte!

Tuesday, October 27, 2009

Had a GOOD night tonight!

After getting up at 4:30 pm we had dinner–simple–mac and cheese and fries.

Then made the decision to go out shopping.  It was nice to get out of the house.

A while back I had gotten two pairs of sneakers for work–remember the yellow and green ones?  Anyways, they turned out to be TOO BIG.  Slipping on my heel all the time.  Uncomfortable after just one day.  So I saw on the receipt that I could return them for store credit.  Which is what I did–and found THREE pairs of shoes in return.  A pair of winter boots!  Yeah–finally some that are not too tight.  And a pair of eco-friendly slippers.  And a pair of sneakers for work and walking Izzy.  I was MUCHO happy at that store.  I only had to pay about $17 above my credit.

We headed to Old Navy because Kimm had to return some jeans that were too big.  Wish I had that problem 🙂  While we were there we found some cool winter vests for only $25 each.  Of course we each had to get one!  Kimm–navy, me–lime green.  They will be perfect for walking Izzy and for shoveling.

And then I stopped to get some cross-stitch floss for a Christmas project at A.C. Moore.  They already have the Christmas craft stuff out!

And last, but CERTAINLY NOT LEAST, we stopped in at Barnes and Noble.  I looked at the latest People magazine–isn’t that Sparrow James Midnight Maddon the cutest thing?  And before we left we got our first Pumpkin Spice Lattes of the season.  So good.  Expensive, but worth it.

Okay…since it’s late, I will show pictures of everything tomorrow.  I do this because I can.  I like to keep everyone in suspense!

Night all.
