At 8 months old, Lincoln now has 5 teeth.
This pictures looks scary, but he is really laughing.

Labor Day Weekend

Happy Labor Day! What did we do this weekend, you ask? We labored on Labor Day.

Saturday,we got up early and we went to Abilene to get some things done. We first went to the Toyota dealership to get the oil changed in the truck, then we went to Ulta to my shampoo (I had gone in there the day before and did not have my 20% coupon, so I had to go back later), then we had lunch at Carino's (love that place) and then to HEB & Sams.

Sunday afternoon, we cleaned and then drove to our friends place to pick black eyed peas. Can you say yummy! lots of work, but great flavor. Here are a few pics from picking excursion.

How can you not love this face?

So Sweet!

Three trash bag fulls and two 5-gallon buckets full.

Then, on Monday, laundry, vacuuming and shelling peas and of course playing with Lincoln! 
According to Wikipedia, Labor Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the first Monday in September  that celebrates the economic and social contributions of workers. 
Happy Labor or Laborless Day--however you choose to enjoy it!

The Epitome of Fall

Now, its still hot here in Texas - 85+ days of 100degrees or above, but today is September 1st and that is a sure sign that fall is coming.  Fall is my favorite season!

Leaves 14.5 oz. Filled Candle - Slatkin & Co. - Bath & Body Works
One thing you must know about me...I am a little bit of a candle snob.  I only like certain candles. My favorite for fall is the LEAVES candle by Bath & Body Works. This candle is the epitome of everything that is fall!
I love, love, love this candle. They went on sale today and I also had a coupon, so I went and bought 4. That should get me through mid-October. I will probably have to get more later. If you dont trust me, go to your local BBW and try this candle before they are sold out. I promise you wont be disappointed!
