Random Friday ~~ The Beginning of Fall Edition ~~

Fall ~~ Ahhh let it set it a minute.....
Yes I know it's not official, but it is coming ~~ YAY!!!
What I like about Fall.....
Beautiful Fall Arrangements.....

Lovely Country Porches.....

And Cross-Country.....YAY....
Tomorrow we will be here.....
Our first Cross-Country Meet!!!

And Dak will be doing this.....

And this....
Go son, Go.....

And hopefully some of this too =)

Dak has not felt well this week. He has had some serious eye issues. We are not sure what is going on. They sent him home from school on Wednesday, and we went to Urgent Care, but they are not sure what is going on0. He has to use Steriod drops and Anti-biotic drops 4 and 5 times a day, but his eyes are much better, still red, but much better. He missed practice yesterday morning, but he is back at it this morning.
We are looking forward to the season kick off and that will happen tomorrow~~~ YAY!!
Lately, I have been wanting chili......a yummy, delicious, rich, thick bowl of lovely chili.....
And this weekend it will feel more like Fall here, so I may have to break out my chili skills =)
Oh and be-still-my-heart.....
It is College Football Season ~~ YAY!!!

And that means, my beloved Nebraska Cornhuskers will be back on the field.
I am ready ~~ GO TEAM GO!!!
They are 8th in the rankings ya know.
I can't think of the last time we started the year ranked 8th.
Ready for a GREAT year!!
This is Husker sells out EVERY home game.....and has so
for like ever.....well, not ever, but a REALLY long time...
Impressive ~~Husker fans are just GREAT!!
And in true Random Friday style, let me give you a glimpse of our evening last night.
It was raining, I mean like seriously raining. In the past two days we have gotten like upwards of 10 " in our little town. I'm not sure how much exactly, but A LOT!!
And yesterday afternoon it started raining, like downpour raining!!!
So what does a husband and his little lady do?
Go running....okay walking last night, but oh how great!!
It was SO fun!!!
I mean it was raning HARD ~~ We waded in ankle deep water and through mud and loved every.single.minute. We were soaked to the bone and smiling.
Now, this was BEFORE the storms. After this downpour it started storming, we decided to stay in =)
I hope you all have a beautiful and lovely weekend.
Love and hugs,


  1. Dak looks like he's grown so much more into a man since last years pictures!!! WOW!!!!

    Hope he feels better to get those feet moving!!!

    Hmmm - chili - a true Fall food.. now you got me craving it...

    I LOVE Fall decorations myself & am excited about pulling out all the pumpkins & orange & reds...

    I too love to walk/run in the rain... it makes you feel like a kid, I think... if you get caught in a downpour, all you can do is laugh... you're already wet, might as well make the best of it!

    Have a great Friday friend!!!
    HUGS & love!!!

  2. I'll say a prayer for Dak and hope he has a great meet! I don't think I could run to our mailbox...ha!

    Sorry I missed the study Tuesday. We didn't get our work on the farm done until around 9pm. I was so bummed knowing you gals were having fun without me. Hope to catch you Tuesday night.

    I love Fall favorite time of year. Of course, a little "Roll Tide" coming up doesn't hurt either!

  3. Hope he feels better....I love fall weather...real fall weather and, love, love football.....Have a great weekend

  4. I'll be praying that Dakato feels like running in the morning. This should be a really good test for this year. I might even cheer for you beloved NEBRASKA. Go cornhuskers Love you

  5. I am right there with you about the start of Fall and all that it means!!! Including college football starting tomorrow...Oh I can't wait to cheer my hawkeyes on!! Enjoy the cross country meet, we'll be enjoying soccer :) Happy labor day!

  6. So excited to hear about Dak's last year of Cross Country. Tyler had a TERRIBLE eye issue all last week. They looked awful, they were red and itching and tearing. I almost made him go to the doctor, but just yesterday they started to look much better! We assumed it was something in the air bothering them??? Maybe not?
