Don't judge me.


It's Orchard Season!

October 18, 2010

Last weekend B and I went to Center Grove Orchard. I LOVE this place. They have all kinds of things to do.....like the corn pool and duck races. There are the 3 Little Pigs' houses and the crazy goats, and of course you can't forget their store. We may or may not have spent around $40 on various apple related products. I mean, I NEEDED 1/2 a peck of honeycrisp apples. Enjoy some pics!

 Pretty apple trees.

B entering the corn maze.
 Super important information.
 Crazy goats! They had these platforms suspended in the air for the goats to walk on. They could get from one fenced area to another this way, and you literally walked right underneath them.
Cute duckies.
 Old Woman who lived in a shoe. That would be me.
 Me & B. I am a midget apparently.
"Oh hey. I'm just chillin' in my goat house."
 Yet another view of the crazy goats. I was getting nervous about them falling off the platforms.
The infamous corn pool. I mean, where else but Iowa will you find a freakin' POOL O' CORN!?!?
Everybody heading to the store to get the goods before leaving.

Check it out.

Just a quick one tonight to give some blog lovin'. Everybody should check out my good friend Ryan's photography blog......he just took some photos of Shawn Johnson (Umm hello Summer Olympics? Sweet Gymnast from Iowa? Ring any bells?) and they are AMAZING! As are pretty much all the photos he takes. I have been friends with him a loooooong time and his lovely wife Liz is one of my besties.

A link can be found on my blog list on the sidebar, but just in case look him up at www.ryantowephotography.com/blog. SO PROUD!!! :)

Glass, Gator and Good Friends

October 10, 2010

So not ready for Monday morning. We had a good weekend, just too short as usual. On Friday night we hung out with the gang downtown at Hessen Haus. It was Amiyna's last weekend in town (*insert sad face here*). B and I had a good time hanging out with her and the guys. I was peer pressured into trying alligator at Hessen Haus, apparently since I am from the South it was shocking that I had never tried it. Let's just say that was the first and last time I will be eating it. Not my thing. On Saturday I went to Art Fest West at the Village of Ponderosa and there were some pretty awesome artists there. My fave was the booth with the glass sculptures and flowers.

 Amazing glass sculpture at Art Fest.

 The gator. Blech.

Weekend Rewind

October 4, 2010

Lovely weekend. B and I got to catch up some good friends on Friday, including my BF Amiyna who is here visiting from Switzerland! Who I haven't seen in 2.5 years! We had a good time with everyone at TX Roadhouse for dinner, even though we had to split up at two separate tables. :(

Saturday I did some shopping and accomplished my one task of finding new tall, black boots for fall/winter. I am *SO* happy with the ones I found at DSW. Here are my new babies. They can be found here.

On Sunday Harry, my mom and I went down to the Sunday Bazaar in the East Village. The weather was perfect and Harry was happy with all the attention he got. There were a variety of vendors, everything from jewelry to cigars to vintage home decor. Definitely recommend it! (There were also belly dancers, definitely DON'T recommend.) I got a funky necklace and bought B a couple of cigars.
