Just today

So today started out looking like it was pretty much gonna be a dud. I was bummed about that too, because we are having some seriously PERFECT weather, I mean PERFECT! Sunny and breezy and....wait for it....COOL! That's right, we had our first fall-ish day today, and it was wonderful. And the sad thing is the kids and I almost missed it. But, after Brady woke up, and we saw that we had so many hours to play until Dad was going to be home, I stopped feeling sorry for myself and we decided to head outdoors. First we had to go to Target for a few essentials (and the kids may have gotten to pick out a treat too!) then one more stop and it was off to the park.

We spread out the red and white picnic blanket and I rested in the COOL shade while the kids ran around and kicked the ball. Then we all snacked on some yummy Teddy Grahams, Ritz cheese crackers and mini Chips Ahoy! What a fun snack! Anywho, it was so nice to get OUT and enjoy the seriously awesome weather. I wish every single day could be like today was! Instead here in Texas I feel a sense of urgency to utilize every day like this because they seem so rare! I can't WAIT for fall to arrive, and I hope it lingers!

Oh! And that second stop before the park? I got my new fall shoes! Woo Hoo!
I got them at Famous Footwear, and did you know that if they don't have your size they will order them AND ship them to your house for free! No shipping and handling if you order from the store. And OH MY they have the CUTEST shoes out this season!

Today was beautiful outside, I couldn't believe it. And the rest of the week is supposed to be nice, too!!

I love this weather - I'm afraid of the day it turns upper 90s on us. Yeah, I'm a pessimist! Cute shoes.

Seriously cute shoes!
But don't make the weather turn just yet, I'm still waiting for our annual Indian Summer here. I'm not ready for cool weather yet.
