  {All work and no play...}

So I feel like my life has been all work and no play for a few weeks and I can feel it both in my body and my soul. So yesterday after church, Lagan and I went to the park to hang out together. It was really nice to just spend time with her, taking photos, looking at the leaves, which I am SHOCKED about, because the leaves NEVER change colors here in Austin! I think the hurricane brought in cooler weather and the Fall season!

So here are some photos from our day! Oh, and how cute does Lay look in this outfit? I made it for her many months ago and we finally got it on her!! I was so happy :)

she had no idea what to think about these huge colorful leaves!

Can you tell her "pose"? lol

blog siggy

Gina said...

So fun about the leaves changing!! I'm glad you took the time to enjoy the day!!!

Hi there! Thanks for coming by my blog. I've been looking over yours a little bit and I've subscribed. I'm just getting back into coupon shopping after TOTALLY burning myself out last year. I'll look forward to your future posts.

She is about the cutest thing - love the pic of her holding the leaves!

You made that outfit? It's darling!

Love your blog!

She has such gorgeous eyes!

Amber said...

Hi Nikki! You were my first comment on my new blog! Yoohoo!! Thanks for taking the time to leave your comment.

Your daughter is so cute. You did a wonderful job on her outfit. That's one thing that I'd love to officially learn how to do - sew. I've dappled in it a little, but I've never really gotten very far.

Oh, I watched your coupon binder video. What a great idea! I think I'm going to provide a link to that from my blog within the next few days. I always clip coupons but have never found an efficient way to organize them. I think this is a great idea! Oh, and you have really nice nails!!!

Well, take care!

Britt said... you still have those leaves by any chance? Or can you get some for me? My kids are learning about "Fall" next week and they are going to do some projects w/ leaves...those would be awesome! I would greatly appreciate it :) Love u!

Darlene said...

Hi Nikki,

Your daughter is GORGEOUS and the outfit is ADORABLE...what a great job you did on it!! I do hope y'all took those beautiful leaves home to use in any Fall decorating you do. Just Beautiful!!
