A Trip to the Pumpkin Patch

by laury on October 25, 2010 · 24 comments

Good Morning! How was your weekend? Mine was just OK. The Phillies lost, that was a bummer…however, I am not going to be a sore loser. The Giants won fair and square, they deserve to be in the World Series right now. I WILL be rooting for Cliff Lee though, I still heart him mucho.

I only did a few of the things I set out to do this weekend. My massage on Friday was divine. My very first pre-natal massage…which feels weird because I still feel small enough to get a regular massage, but they felt more comfortable having me lye on my side. I guess better to be safe than sorry! Oh, and my prenatal yoga class on Thursday was awesome. I think it will be most beneficial the further along I get…I do need a lot of the breathing and stretching, so I’m happy that I will be getting a head start on it now!

Michael and I saw ‘The Town’ on Friday night, it was pretty entertaining. After that we had dinner at HIS fav place, Maggianos. I split a salad with him and got the mussels appetizer. It was pretty good.

I did get over to the farm for my pumpkin, but no baking or carving happened yet. I had a mini meltdown looking at my closets, my den and the cramped 950 square foot space that is my condo, freaking out and WHERE this baby is going to go! So my mom came over and we got A LOT done–I put all the clothes away that will not be fitting me this winter. We did a closet and a half, and planned our strategy for the rest of the house. The den/baby room will be last. My mom described my book collection as the mini Einstein collection, there are SO many books…and the large book shelf in my den will soon be used for baby stuff. We decided to get a few more book cases for the living room and the bedroom and one for the kitchen to hold everything, because God-forbid I pack them up and put them away ;-)

Ikea trip in the very near future…

Even though I never got the bake, I did get some great pic from my trip to the farm. I plan to carve my pumpkin in the next day or two. Michael is craving my toasted pumpkin seeds, so I need to get on it!

my pumpkin :-)

What was the highlight of your weekend?

Are you are very organized person, or do you have trouble keeping things in order?

My house is always CLEAN, I just get overwhelmed with STUFF and the lack of space to put it. I also have issues with holding onto things…I need someone else to come in and help me purge every now and then. Thanks, Mom :-)

Now off to the gym…I was up at 5:45 for work this morning, so creepy leaving the house when the moon is still shining!

xxoo

They had a good season, I still love them. Pitching was great, but our bats never woke up, unfortunately. I am feeling better overall. That’s why I had my meltdown…nit sure how the rest of the time will go so I want to get my house in order while I am having these good day! After 4 hours of cleaning I passed out on the bed though, it was exhausting!

Great pictures girl! Sorry to hear about your team! Does this mean you won’t be rooting for the Rangers? I can not stand clutter…it freaks me out. I’m a 90 percent clean freak, the other 10 percent is disgusting! I feel like my house isn’t clean until the counter tops are clear and my carpets are vaccumed! ;) I love when everything is in it’s place.

I LOVE all those fabulous shots you took at the market and pumpkin patch. I need you to teach me how to toast pumpkin seeds properly. My current method pretty much sucks – no one in my house comes even close to craving them!

I am a super organized person who obsesses over having a place for everything. I buy tiny little bins, drawers, and boxes just to hold safety pins and rubber bands. I’m a freak;)

That’s so funny that you say this. I’m not really all that organized and yesterday I bought various containers and such. My closet is suddenly transformed and I feel inspired to get more shelving/containers to gussy up the rest of my clutter.

Did you like “The Town?” It was a lot different than I thought it would be. Blake Lively’s accent was killing me :)

I thought it was pretty good. I had no idea what to expect, never saw the preview….the husband wanted to see it, I was pleasantly surprised. Not the best movie, but entertaining. Oh, and Serena Vanderwoodson should stick with the upper east side for sure ;-)

I love the pumpkin and apple pics — I want to go get my pumpkin now! I told Jason he can go pick ours out, but now I kind of want to do that myself :)

Laury I get totally overwhelmed with my house too — too much stuff and not enough places to put things. I like things out of sight — closets, cupboards, enclosed bookshelves, etc. Actually SEEING things drives me nuts and I go on sprees on getting rid of stuff, reorganizing, etc. It was nice of your mom to help you out — sometimes having another person there (who doesn’t LIVE there) is so helpful — they can be more objective and give you good ideas.

And a trip to Ikea is usually fun, right? Look forward to the new things :)

I’ve been getting that freak out “where will stuff go” feeling lately too. I’m just about 5 months behind you. LOL We probably need to get a move on that.

I’m a new reader, & I love your blog! congrats on your pregnancy! I was just like you before I got pregnant, avid health guru.. addicted to working out and of course very proud of my abs that took me years to get.. but I have to say now that I have my babies (I was had twins.) They are worth so much more. & they are 3 months old now and my abs are almost back! Your going to pop back quick, my body changed oober fast too… at nine weeks I couldn’t zip up my jeans..There was no denying it.. seriously sad but 5 days after giving birth I was brave to try my jeans on again and they slipped right on. The healthier you are the easier it is to get back in pre baby shape. Good luck with your pregnancy!

Fabulous pictures.
I am extremely organized, almost to a fault. haha
I, too, left the house for work before the sun woke. It is so weird!
Have a great day!

I have those moments too where you feel claustrophobic with the stuff in your house. I’m glad you and your mom got all that stuff cleared out..you must be so relieved! On one of our last visits to my mom’s house we got to organizing and re-arranging her living room and we got rid of 3 full garbage bags worth of just useless stuff. Sometimes she was so attached to things but they had no meaning so bye-bye. It was really fun and now the living room looks so much better! Now I just need the hubby to organize his dreser like he organizes the garage LOL!
I’m in love with that pumpkin patch! Amazing photos and great pumpkin:)
I need to get my pumpkin too:)
Have a great day!

Love the pics Laury! And wow, dates are cheap in your area, I’m so jealous.

We both work at home, so I confess our house gets messy quickly, but we go on massive cleaning binges once a week. My husband is the bleach-king. I really hate “stuff” so I seem to purge things every quarter or so. We have moved around to different states (nomads I guess!) so having too much extra stuff just weighs you down.

A massage sounds heavenly! only 9 more days to go before I get to go to mine.. it’s been way too long since the last time.

Gorgeous pictures! I don’t know anyone from Finland who goes to pumpkin picking, so I guess we just don’t do it here. What a pity!

I was so sad about the phils:(:( I am still bummed:( But the giants out played them so i suppose they deserved to win:/ I love cliff lee, why was it necessary to get rid of him??

I love books and have a huge collect too:) I only have a few here with me and the rest of the collection is gathering dust at my parents house lol

It was all about the money….they wanted Halladay and didn’t want to pay for Lee. Guess the rangers are getting the last laugh…although I can’t say ANYTHING bad about Halladay, he is a freakin’ superstar, and ALL of our pitchers were clutch this year…it was the rest of the team.

I’ve heard great things from pregnant freinds about pre-natal yoga.

Massage, pumpkins, organizing books…sounds like a great weekend!

I am soooooooo bad at organizing. My room, clothes all over the floor- clean but all over. I liked to live in what I call, Organized Clutter, if you will. ;)

Glad you have a mom that can help with all that stuff- my mom is way more unorganized than me, and she keeps EVERYTHING. Not a good combo. lol

Glad you had a relaxing weekend and love the pumpkin patch pictures!
