Burt met a new friend, Louie! Louie's the dog of my friend from work back in CA that I ran into here in NC. She moved here, too! Although I had no idea til I spied her coming out of a Marshall's one fine Saturday morning. They got along just grand, both running in circles and battling over sticks.

Apologies for the image quality but I wanted to show off one of the houses in our neighborhood.  It is decked out for Halloween.  They even nailed boards across all the windows for a haunted house effect.  The large grim reaper is made with a basketball goal.  Almost all the homes in the area are decorated to some degree for Halloween.  I have to say I find it charming.

Um, too adorable for words!

Last night we had some houseguests who brought their dog. So, we had 4 adults, 2 dogs and 1 cat crammed into a 1 bedroom apartment overnight. Needless to say, it was a little bananas. Today we're supposed to be heading for the state fair but it's raining at the moment - hope fully it clears up by this afternoon.

The things I find when I seach for Burt Reynolds on Flickr.

When I win the lottery, Jonathan Adler will be doing my homes. Yes, I said homes.

The weekend apple butter session was a success. I took my turn stirring and did a little bit of bottling it up, too. It was the perfect fall weekend. I still smell like smoke, though!

Sweet tea, there's more!

Is it wrong to have a baby almost solely so they can wear such adorable costumes? If so, I don't want to be right.

This photo speaks to me, in obvious ways.

This is a pretty typical dog park scene with Mr. Burt Reynolds. He's the instigator, leading all the other dogs in mad high-speed tears around the park. We can't even take a still shot of him - he's just non-stop action.

I know I'm kinda late to the party, but I'm loving Michael Cera lately.  Has anyone else seen Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist?

I like this dining room - it's probably the wallpaper and curtains speaking to me.

I am trying to buy more heels...

Both photos from Nordstrom

I bought the teal-edged pair above with some birthday loot I received but I think I prefer the triple-strap pair on the top. Looks like a return will be made to Nordstrom post haste.

I'm hoping to branch out from my LiveJournal and create a blog of all the little (or big) things that make up my day.  Most of them will be things I find inspiring or humorous or otherwise notable.  

I'm a transplanted Californian living in the Triangle of North Carolina.  I've got a beagle dog, a surly cat and a lovely husband.  Welcome!
