Day Two (Onetober and 31 Days in the Life of Me)


For the month of October I will be participating in two challenges. Onetober: One Dress, One Month, One Cause and The 31 Day Challenge. You can read more about these here  and here.

Day Two (Onetober and 31 Days in the Life of Me)

31 Days in the Life of Me.

Here is my official Onetober picture of the day. Not the best picture of me or the dress I'll admit but since I forgot all the adults I saw to day to take a picture it was up to me and the kids. Here a few of the rejects for your viewing amusement.

My arms are too short.

Goose's attempts to take a photo.

Bear wants in on the all the picture taking.

(Interesting fact Bear's first ever "picture" was taken at The Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center the center we are raising awareness for)

Today was a rather wet and gray day so the dress got a splash of color from my favorite (and only) rain/trench coat. A crazy bright yellow number from Target.

Because of Josh's schedule Goose didn't go to the baby sitter today and staid with me. She was less then thrilled with going to Bible study/childcare but enjoyed having lunch with the "big girls" when I met up with a dear friend and mentor for lunch. Miss Kriss spends the summers working at a camp with her husband and their grown children so we always have lots to catch up on in the early fall.

I am a busy person by nature. The good thing is I thrive when there is a lot on my to do list, but side is I often put far to much on my to-do list and work myself up into a lot of anxiety. Life is, as always, about finding a balance. And so I am keeping my eyes open for those little moments to slow down in the midst of the busy.

Like text messages with my sisters.

And bed time stories.

And blogging about nothing and everything.
