Current Intention October

 Hey loves. It is hard to believe it is October already, and that I have a 12 year old. We are all in denial at the same time but her social calendar is proving the the pre-teen years are starting and going to get busier as time goes. We have a busy but fun month planned and I have a list of my intentions also. Lets jump in... 

But first linking up with Jennifer over at Overflowing with Thankfulness for currently.


We finally got a back patio. It was a stressful few weeks with bogus excuses of why it keep getting postponed. But it is finally done and we can sit outside and enjoy it. It has already been used everyday: birthday party, wine and a fire with friends, sat outside doing some work, and dinner. 

this girl has my heart with her love for all things pumpkin and Halloween. She only asks one a week if not more if it is time to go trick or treating because we our home decorated for Halloween. 

 excited about

Later this month we are going to my sister in laws farm. It is so beautiful and relaxing, but we have only even been in the summer before. I am excited to see all the beautiful colors of fall. 

They also have chickens that my kids like to help with. 

A cows that they try to pet, but the cows don't get that close. 


Fall season makes me want to watch Vampire Diaries. I have never seen all 8 seasons.


Anna started soccer this past weekend. I wasn't able to go watch her because it was the same morning Ella had her sleepover for her birthday and I couldn't leave 6 girls at home by themselves and Brian is one of the coaches. 

I guess this is how most of her 45 minute practice went, her laying in the field complaining she was hungry, tired, and wanted her mommy. Hopefully next weekend goes better. I will be there and daddy will not. 


I am always watching the deer in our yard. We have seen a buck once so far this season. We are also now paying attention because we bought new plants and are seeing what they are going to try and eat, even though I feel them corn and leftovers.

  1. That's a busy list for the month. How nice that your patio is complete and so cool that you can watch the deer. I can remember my sister and I going with my Dad to a local farm on Saturday mornings to get fresh eggs. Nothing better than food straight from the source.

  2. Oh those soccer photos remind me of when my boys were little; they sometimes played and sometimes had no idea there was a game or practice going on around them. I hope you have the best time at the farm.


Thanks for leaving some comment love.
