One of the fun things we did with our good friends Lindsay and Evan, was go to October-fest. It was in downtown McKinney in the square, and it was a lot of fun. We got some good home-style food, and walked around at all the different shops and booths.
Sean got chicken and waffles, he was a little excited about it...needless to say.
Fried pickles, one of our favorites!
We stopped at this cute little "Texas store" and got some goodies and some cute Texas license plates for our sweet niece and nephew's bikes.
Later in October, we drove out to East Texas to see one of Sean's best friends, Kelly. Kelly coaches football for a small school in Oregon, and Sean didn't want to pass up a chance of seeing him when he's so close! So we made the trek out to BFE, unfortunately it was pouring rain...and there was a 3+hour rain delay. Eventually they played, and Kelly's team ended up crushing them!
Killing time out in the car...
College football...brings back lots of memories. It was no BYU, but it was still fun to see all the them play, and more importantly Kelly's team win. :)
In October we celebrated Lexi's birthdaay! Kylie and I treated her to her choice of dinner, Olive Garden. Soup, salad, and breadsticks...who could turn that down?! It was so nice to be out with just the three of us girls. Happy Birthday Lexi, we love you!
After dinner, we hit up Target...and these onesies looked too tempting not to try on. I think we all look pretty good in them. Thoughts?
A bunny, a monkey, and a zebra...meant to be friends!
Kylie was so comfortable in her new fluffy onesie she decided to take a nap in our family sized dressing room. Can you blame her?
It was such a fun night out with these girls, loved every minute of it!
Fall in Texas is glorious. It's always the perfect weather. We got plenty of use out of our back patio with plenty of grilling and good eating.
We had some secret admirers stop by :)
After all the complaints about how bad FL2 tastes, I finally tried it for myself. I knew it all along...patients are just a bunch of whiners. Not bad at all, seriously...
First fire of the season (aka the first time it got below 60 degrees).
Bonfire at Gerret and Sarah's house.
Speaking of Gerret and Sarah, their crazy little Connor turned 3 this fall. It's so crazy how fast time flies. I remember the day he was born like it was yesterday. Sean and I unfortunately had to miss his birthday party because of work, but I came by right after I got off to give him his present from Uncle Sean and Aunt Becky. We love this little boy.
We went out to Evan's parents' land/bouse for some pumpkin carving! We always love a good trip out to the bouse (barn/house)!
We ended up missing a lot of our trick-or-treaters, but we got the cutest one! Sean got lucky this year, and I was out of town for our ward Halloween party, so he didn't have to dress up this year. Sean loves dressing up for Halloween...
Our leaves in our front yard starting to change! I love fall in Texas (mostly because it's 70 degrees and not freezing like in Chicago).
My good friend, Holly is pregnant too! It's her third boy, so she wouldn't let us throw her a baby shower...but that doesn't mean we couldn't take our friend for a night out on the town! We went to Melting Pot...I've never been there before, and it's delicious!
Thanks to all these ladies for making Holly's special night fun!
It wouldn't be a fun night without pranking one of our friends...
Lindsay and Evan had their sweet baby boy, Carter a few weeks earlier. We went to see them in the hospital, and they were all doing great. He's adorable, and the family of four is home now safe and sound. Jensen and Carter are pretty close in age, and it's been fun to see them become friends together. Congrats Lindsay and Evan!
I've been working with one of my best friends, Paige for the last few years. When our boss sold his practice in November, she decided to leave too. To say I miss her terribly would be a huge understatement. I love you Paigey!
Last but not least, I got a new car! I traded in my IS 250 for a RX350. I just couldn't stay away from that crossover. I do miss my little car every now and then, but it's so nice to have extra room.
We had a great fall together! These are some of the fun things we did together, and I have a few more posts to go. Even though we're crazy busy, we're both really happy.
Stay tuned for more of our fall adventures.
