Oh, October.... <3

The prettiest month of the year, in my opinion, and a month of such fun things! What's coming up this month for us?
 -My Daddy's 50th birthday (tomorrow)-
 -6 years together (10/13)-
 -My birthday (10/20)- 
-Halloween fun- 
-Pretty leaves- 
-Football and football tailgates-
-Haunted houses-
-Spice-scented candles- 
-Caramel Apples-
-Apple Cider-
-Friend's birthdays-
...and at the end of the month, my LASIK eye surgery consultation!  I'm a little bit nervous but so excited for how much it could impact my everyday routine.  Little things that people don't even think of, like having to search for my glasses before I take the dogs downstairs to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, or not being able to snuggle while watching a movie at night because I don't want to fall asleep in my contacts and don't want to bend/break my glasses.  Being able to open my eyes under water at the pool or the lake because I won't need to worry about losing a contact lens.  It will probably make me get ready at least 10 minutes quicker because I will be able to actually see what I'm doing.  I can only image how helpful it would be once we have kids and I'm waking up at all hours of the night and needing to get ready quickly in the mornings.  Not to mention all of the money it will save over time, since I won't be shelling out $350 a year on contacts and saline solution for the rest of my life.  As long as the consult goes well, my surgery should be the morning of November 2nd at TLC in Charlotte!!
And in closing, here are some shots from the boat this weekend...We went out with my friends Karen and Shanti, and Shanti's family.  Their little girl Reina is seriously the cutest ever:

  1. I hope your surgery goes well when you have it.

  2. Thanks Dana! Yes definitely we will need to figure out a stinks that it's getting colder now but it's still fun to go cruise around if the sun's out!


I'd love to hear from you!
