Life Lately... Through Instagram.

We added a new member to our family.
Meet Ashton, for short, Ash.
We adopted him from a local shelter.

I decided on a whim to get hot pink peek-a-boo lowlights.
I LOVE them!
I have never had any fun colors in my hair before.

Fall fun is in full swing here.
Deacon carved this by himself and was quite proud.

The Boys helped me decorate the front yard.
We went with a spider theme, which was fitting because I just got done reading them Charlottes Web.  Of course they named this one Charlotte.

Carving pumpkins means roasted pumpkin seeds will follow.
I used some EVOO, salt and pepper.
I roasted them at 400 for 10 minutes to brown, then I set the oven to 250 for another 10-15 minutes.
Watching the SF Giants win the world series last night was AMAZING!

Have a blessed week all!!
