Happy Official Fall!

I thought this would be a nice picture set to welcome Fall into 2010. As you can see Fall is in full swing here in Alaska, we are even waking up to frost on our windshields some mornings.  This is absolutely my most favorite time of year. I went to the store yesterday and bought some yummy "fall" candy to put out and pumpkin whoopie pies are definitely on the dessert menu sometime in the near future. YUM!

Yesterday seemed to be the worst day of my slump. This outfit reflects someone who just needed a day off to chill. The doctors appointments have gone from code yellow to code red. We found out that my husband has to go in for some pretty major skull/brain surgery soon. Nothing life threatening but it is still surgery on his skull nonetheless. He has had this bump on his head for as long as I can remember, it has gotten slightly larger through the years and so we decided it needed to come off. What better time to do it than with double coverage insurance right?!?  This double coverage thing seems to be more trouble than it's worth!!! I guess we bit off more than we could chew because what we thought would be a simple procedure done by a general surgeon has now turned into a neurosurgeon and reconstruction of his skull....lovely.
On a brighter note, I am loving this Tweeting, you guys crack me up! If we aren't friends yet...Why not?

Dinging about around the house, a few errands around town, to the airport to drop off a friend.

  1. Oh Danielle, I'm so sorry about all the stress you and your family are going through. Though, as I've said before, it's wonderful that you're looking at it with optimism and smiles. I'm thinking of you, doll.

    And I just love this outfit. Casual creativity at its best!

  2. I hope the surgery for your hubby is quick and he heals fast. Hang in there! You're looking cute and comfy for the hectic life you are leading right now.

    Even on your chill days, you look awesome. The autumn landscape is brilliant behind your outfit.
