Toilet Seat

As you can see, it's winter out there people. With winter comes it's own set of problems, and I just found one...

I was recently eavesdropping on a group of women who were discussing the trials of life in cold weather. Very appropriate for October I was thinking. When suddenly, to my embarrassment, I was spotted spying and asked this question. "Shalee, what do you think is the worst part of winter?" To add further embarrassment to my spying, without thinking, and because of recent experience, I blurted out "COLD TOILET SEATS!" 

What?! Why did I say that?! That's not really an appropriate answer for mixed company. I could have said sore runny noses, the need to wear gloves and big bulky coats, or even the high price of heating my home (you know, since I'm an adult now). All of those are true and all of those I hate.

But, you know, the more I think about it the more I want stand by my original answer. I HATE getting up in the middle of the night, half asleep, and being forced into full consciousness by a thin slab of porcine grazing my delicate derriere. As a lady I'm forced into this situation every time nature calls. A cold toilet seat. It is, in my opinion, the worst part of winter!

Oh, hey! Nice to see you. Did you come here to check out my new shoes? There new! My grandma bought them for me on a trip to the Olympic Peninsula. My Mommy and Aunt Tahnia helped me to put them on the other day when we decided to go out on the town. In case you can't tell, they are super soft and furry!

Quality I tell you, Quality!

We Trumped Through the Pumpkin Patch


This last weekend we had the privilege of taking Levi to his very first Corn Maze!!! Going to the Corn Maze is one of the things I look forward to most every year. Because I'm currently not working  we were able to find a Saturday early on in the month (not scrambling last minute), it was nice not having the weather be freezing!

We had a lot of fun! We showed Levi his first live Pigs and Reindeer. He was not impressed...  He also slept through the Corn Maze, the Pumpkin Patch, the Tractor Ride, and Ice Cream. Good thing his entrance fee was free. He actually did great, no crying or anything. I also found Levi his first Pumpkin. It's orange, green, and warty. Perfect for a little boy!
