Smells Like Fall in Here

Yesterday was dedicated to resting.

I slept until 6:30am. So, right through Title Boxing! Once that happened, I decided to get house work done and wear my glasses all day.

That bar we were in on Saturday night, in Hermann, MO, still allows smoking (the HORROR!) and I had to peel my contacts off my eye balls when I got home on Sunday.  It felt good to wear my glasses all day yesterday and they are still on my face!

I had to take one of the guys we care for to an appointment yesterday morning and then it was back in my PJ’s at home, doing laundry, cleaning the kitchen and eating homemade chicken noodle soup!

It’s never fun for Justin to be sick, but if there has to be a bright side, it’s that I always make a pot of chicken noodle soup.  I LOVE soup! Raise your hand if you LOVE soup too!

Oh, my house smells like fall.  I took advantage of Yankee Candle’s “Buy One Get One 50% Off” and purchased: Apple Cider, Pumpkin Pie, Be Thankful and Buttercream


As you can see, two candles are already filling our home with the smell of coziness.

Before I close for the morning, I have to give a shout out to Justin’s step brother, Aaron.  He competed in his first bodybuilding competition this past weekend!! Congratulations Aaron!  You did it!  We are so proud of you!

Also, I don’t think I ever gave a shout out to Chelle after she competed a couple of weeks ago!  Her story is amazing!  Way to go, Chelle
