Weekly Wows

Wow! It's been a long time since I've done one of these. Usually these posts highlight things that have happened over the past week...but this post includes wows from almost three weeks ago.
I guess mommyhood isn't always conducive to blogging. ;)

We were fortunate enough to go to Cowboys Stadium to see ACU play, thanks to my in-laws.
The kiddos even got to come!
The grandkids are sporting their matching ACU onesies - thanks, Mini and Zu!

Max absolutely LOVED the big screen and stared at it, mesmerized the whole time! It was pretty funny. :) We also got to enjoy breakfast with the fam on Sunday morning before church. Such a treat!

I have discovered a new recipe to add to the meal rotation: the Pear and Bacon Grilled Cheese, which was featured in this month's issue of Real Simple. I tried it for dinner last week, and it was a hit!

Your bread of choice + currant jam + thin pear slices + bacon + cheese 
= yummy fall goodness in your mouth!

We are getting closer and closer to finishing Max's nursery! 
I ordered a bookcase and it arrived last week, so this is what his room currently looks like...

The only thing that's changed here is the addition of the hook and hanging wet bag for our cloth diapers. :)

We added a cute little wall shelf, which features the beautiful scripture board hand-painted by Clay's cousin Laura!

 Here is the bookcase, which had to get because the rack was overflowing with books. What can I say? I love to read!

I added the letters to spell Max's name above his crib. I will probably eventually hang them on the wall 
and maybe add something to the arrangement. Suggestions?

My artistic Aunt Dee has generously offered to paint a piece to hang on the (very bare) walls - probably above the changing table - and it will be something similar to this:

The scooter motif was purely an accident, but we're going with it 'cause it's cute!

 It's that time again - time for Just Between Friends!
I went on Saturday morning and found quite a few goodies.

A jumperoo, a shopping cart cover, two pairs of shoes, four shirts and three pants for under $90. (I'm good - I know.) The sale ends October 2nd, so you still have time to catch a few good deals yourself!

Fall is finally here! I know I say this every year, but after the sweltering summer we had, I am ready for some relief! The weather is slowly but surely getting the idea - I can't wait for the cooler temps the weatherman has been promising for next week. :)

I'd love to hear what's wowing you!
