Cold, Fall Day

I've had a busy couple of days. Yesterday my two weeks with only one doctor in town caught up with me as all the charts and faxes were ready from Dr. Barker's week back and I was leaving half a day. So, needless to say, I was super busy! I also had a pretty major haircut yesterday! I am LOVING the new lowlights and cut. I just hope I can style it right tomorrow! Ha!


Today has been a COLD, dreary day. I got up when Michael left for work and went to meet a new friend. Amy has been reading my blog since the fire and wanted to meet, so we met at Starbuck's for a warm, cozy Pumpkin Spice latte! It was so much fun and I am so glad we met! I look forward to many more Starbuck's dates soon!!!

After I left Starbuck's I ran in the Oreck store which is almost right next door. My poor little vacuum has been out of commission since the fire (don't worry, I have an old one of my mom's, my house has been cleaned since! Ha!) and we FINALLY got it fixed this week. I couldn't wait to come home and clean with my new-old vacuum! We had just invested a lot of money right before the fire when we bought it, so I have been upset to not have it.

After I cleaned my mom and I ran out to Hobby Lobby. The weather is so winterlike today (47 and cloudy) that it has put us in the mood for Christmas! Ha! I bought a few new Christmas ornaments and here is a sneak peak of my color scheme (well, other than the UT ornaments, those are just because!).
I also realized at the end of last winter that I desperately needed a new North Face fleece this winter, so I ran in Dick's Sportinggoods to find a new one. I found a special edition denali jacket that has pink writing and a pink ribbon for breast cancer on the sleeve and knew I wanted that one! Too cute!
After my mom dropped me back off at home I ran to the grocery store to get a few things for the week and to get some things for tonight. I've had chili in the crockpot all day and our friends, the Mountjoys are coming over tonight. (the recipe is on my old recipe blog at web.mac.com/ajledford, but I'll repost on my new recipe blog soon!)
Tomorrow we have a few fun fall activities planned! I am excited to spend some quality time with Michael!

I love the brown and tan ones! We live about 3 hours from Frankenmuth, MI where the largest Christmas store in the US and probably the world is! I cannot even begin to describe it.

The new hair cut/color looks great! I like the jacket w/the pink breast cancer ribbon ;) My mom bought an Oreck a few months ago and loves it! So I can understand your excitement over a vacuum, LOL I was thinking of homemeade chili in the crockpot for tomorrow - it's the perfect weather for it, huh?! Brrrr! I broke down and turned the heat on today!

Love the new hair cut! It is cold here in ATL too - time to break out the sweaters and the chili.

We are having cold weather too. I am so thrilled. I like the new jacket and the new haircut. I go back for another cut on November 6th. Not sure what I will do next, but I have highlights again :) I may have to go check Dicks and see what they have. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
