Fair 2013 Recap

Let me start off by saying that I have really really missed blogging! I have had the time to sit down and write a post everyday but never did and while I wish I had written a few I'm okay with the fact that I took a really long break. And I am back and hopefully I will go out, take a ton of pictures and have lots to share (:

There is so much that I want to do...I really want to finish fixing up the kitchen, the bathroom has been half done for a year and I really want to those two things, I especially can't wait to pick out the paint colors :P But I also really want to clean everything up outside, one of these days! I totally believe that a lot of people have time to do the things that they want but instead they go 'Oh I don't have the time for that!' when really all they have to do is go outside (or wherever) and do it! Which is what I should be doing.

I want Autumn to be here. Which is the first time ever, usually I just want Summer to last forever but no, this this I just want all of the pretty colors here. And while searching Autumn on Pinterest makes me go all starry-eyed then I get sad 'cause it's only on my computer screen, not outside.

Now that I have written this much I realize how good it feels to just be typing and being the only person awake in a (mostly) quiet house. It should be like this every day Saturday!

Now onto my county fair picture recap :)
P.S. This post will only have my 4x6's. The next post will have all my enlargements.

You are welcome. :)

Fun bunch of pictures - lots of really good ones in there. Fix up your kitchen - seriously! My kids barely get their laundry to the hamper and when they do - it's a good day in our household.

Keep the posts coming. :)

Yay! I was so excited to see your post pop up in my feed today. :)

I've enjoyed your fall pins on pinterest.. it really is a gorgeous time of year, and will be here before we know it. It has felt like fall at our house for the past couple of weeks. Cool nights. Campfires.

AWESOME photo entries & congrats on all the great placing at the fair!!
I was asked to judge photography for the 4H at our county fair this coming week.. but we are possibly going to be out of town so I couldn't commit. Bummed, because I thought it would be so much fun!
If we're home, I'll go and enjoy looking at them.

Glad you are back! Don't stay away so long! I did notice your autumn pin-a-thon on Pinterest. Lots of lovely pins to get us all in the mood. I love autumn too. It is far to short a season around here.
