Pumpkin patch here we come!!!

Well Saturday we went to the pumpkin patch! It was lots of fun kinda chilly (glad we took our jackets). Braydon really enjoyed it. Showered on us for a sec.
He was totally into at first!

Then not so much after they got back. He said it was bumpy! haha

Then we rode the hay ride out to the pumpkin patch
They picked the perfect pumpkin

In Braydon's words "Its so heavy for me!"

He was off to the races....the duck races that is!

He loved shooting this thing. It was a pumpkin shooter thing. Pretty cool I was afraid he was going to shoot the kid working it haha

Favorite place when Fall comes Around!!! LOVE IT!!

Quilt top finished!!!

So, on the 20th I finished my first quilt I designed, cut, sewed all by myself!! With the help of Missouri Star Quilt Company's start to finish baby quilt tutorial. They have great tutorials if you are learning to quilt, and don't want to go fork up big bucks to go to a class. This is my new found hobby, and I love it. It look me about a year to finally get the guts to pick out fabric and sit down, and sew by myself. I learned how to sew my first stitch about a year ago as well. My unbiological Grandma taught me how to cut with a rotary cutter. She taught me how to make an apron. I also bought my first sewing machine about a year ago as well. Singer Simple it was like 50 bucks at walmart. I had a gift card so it actually cost me nothing. So, glad I got it I just wanted one that I could start sewing on, not complicated just a sit down and sew. And, for its debut!!! Here it is in all its glory!!!!
The corners are NOT lined up very well, and the borders are kinda lumpy. Oh well at least I finished it. Now on to basteing, quilting, and binding it. Hopefully I'll be getting that done this next week. I HAVE TO start on Christmas gifts. This was originally was going to be give as a gift, but I changed my mind. It has all the colores in my house, and its my first so its staying with me. : )

Also, I love fall!!! Here is my autumn maple!! LOVE IT!!! It dropped its leaves yesterday though.

Fertility Business once again!!

Well I haven't updated on my getting prego stuff yet, so I guess I'll start again.

I started my Metformin again BLAH!! I hate that stuff it makes me SO sick to my stomach for the first month, but oh well I just need to suck it up because it'll all be well worth it in the end. So, its been a week that I started it so next week I have to take 2 a day. And, then it'll hopefully make me ovulate. Cross your fingers, get to prayen because last time I started taking this stuff it helped me with in 2 months we got prego, but then miscarried. But, the good thing was I actually got prego. So, we will see!!

This weekend we are hopefully going up to Colorado to see the leaves changing! Hopefully Mr. T said he might have to work : ( So, if we do get to I'll post so awesome pics!! I heart Colorado!! But, deep down I miss good ole Texas!

BTW I made Pioneer Women's Chicken Fried Steak last night it was delish. With homegrown picked straight from my garden mashed potatoes, and green beans (not picked from my garden). My honey has really been working LONG hours like from 4:30 AM to 7:00 PM from Monday till Saturday. That was last weeks hours. So, I thought I would make something that he would really enjoy. It was the first time I've ever made chicken fried steak. I'm doing this thing with one of my teachers from jr. high on Facebook where we make at least one dish a week that we haven't ever made. I think it'll be fun kinda mix things up. I did my menu planning and next week we will be having shrimp creol!! Yummmmmyyyy
