Tea Party, anyone?

Hellloo!! I feel like I haven't really posted much about the going ons in our household so I am going to try my best to update you.

Today was such a wonderful day for many reasons.  Take a look and enjoy- :)

We started off our day with carving pumpkins-yes, i know it's a little late, but I didn't mind and the kiddos wanted to carve them. Juliana was reluctant at first to get her hands gooey, but after touching the seeds one time, she loveeedd squishing it between her fingers.  Tyler just watched the whole time and said "ewww.'

After carving, I suggested we have a tea party! Juliana's face lit up and she got sooo excited.  We baked chocolate chip cookies, popcorn and had capri sun's and sweet tea.  I taught her that ladies say please and thank you and that you have to pop that pinkie up when taking a sip.  It reminded me of my Terri's Treasures birthday party when I was youger. I think I may have been 8 or so...We all dressed up in adult gowns and strutted around the streets of Atlanta after our tea party.
So, after our tea party by the lake, we went to the front yard and picked up different types of leaves to compare them. We talked about the differences and looked at all the colors.  It was fun!

I love those kiddos and they are so sweet. Juliana kept saying "Kait, I love you" and Tyler kept giving me big ol' kisses.  :)

After Seth got home, we took Penny on a walk and let her run around in the yard a little. She is the most precious pup ever. I then made some homemade lasagna. it turned out really yummy and I just threw it together.  I may post the recipe sometime if i think about it.

Seth's law school applications are in full swing right now. He is writing essays as we speak.  Reference letters have been sent, and now it's just writing the essays that he has left to do. I can't believe that this time next year he will be almost done with his first semester of law school!!  When you have a spare moment, please pray for us as we will be making some big decisions about law school these next few months.

Tomorrow we are heading to the mall to get a few more Christmas gifts and me a new outfit for a Thanksgiving party we are hosting on Saturday.  We only have two more gifts to get for Christmas and then we are FINISHED!  So, about the party on Saturday..we are having a Thanksgiving feast here at our home for our friends.  We are having about 15 people attend. I cannnooott wait. I love hosting get-togethers at our home. I want to get a cute little sweater dress that I can wear with tights...

Hubby's birthday is on Saturday too! I am going to get him an oreo cake (his all time favorite) and still have YET to get his birthday present! We are going to see Harry Potter on Friday night as part of his present but I still have one more thing I'd like to get him.  I can't wait to celebrate him with our friends on Saturday. I love him. so much.

There is a meteor shower in the morning at 3am and I think Seth and I may wrap up in blankets and lay in our backyard for a bit to watch it. Should be fun-i love watching shooting stars.

Anyway...I made a trip to Rite Aid this week and take a look at what I got:

You probably won't believe me when I tell you that I got paid $8.00 to buy these products, but I did.  Not with real money, but with +up rewards.  Those are the same thing as ECB's at CVS, in that when you buy certain products you get rewards back that you can spend on anything in the store. I spent a total of $2.00 (which was all tax) and got $10 in +up rewards.  So, I made 8 "dollars" to spent in Rite Aid.  Pretty cool, huh?  The value of all the products before sales and coupons was $53.11 and so i'd say that's a pretty darn good savings.  :)
 I bought these at Harris Teeter for just under  $1 each.  The price of 1 box of Fiber One cereal is usually $4.89 cents and I got all of this for $6. (2 of those fiberone bars boxes were from the previous purchase from Rite Aid)  I loveeee Fiber One cereal. it's sooo yummy, but i usually never buy it because it's so expensive. So, i love it when I can get a great deal.

ALSO, I ordered a canvas of my favorite wedding photo and it came in the mail today!!! EEEEEEEKKKK!!!!

Haha. Seth didn't want me to post this photo because his hoodie makes him look like he's got a big ol' belly but i posted it anyway.  Just know he is thinner than what the photo makes him look like. :)  But..do you love it?!?!  I lovveee it. I just gotta figure out where to hang it now!  I ordered it from canvaspeople.com and right now they are giving you a $55 credit! If you are needing a photo enlarged, definitely check it out.  It would make a wonderful Christmas gift. The quality is REALLY good too.  I will definitely order from them again.

Goodness gracious, I am so tired! It just hit me that I need to get in bed soon! I also don't want to forget about What I'm Loving Wednesday, so i'm going to make a short post after this one!

Also, I know I've promised some of my DIY projects..ick, i just have to go through my thousands of photos and dig them out. I promise it will be soon!  Stay tuned and goodnight!
