Yesterday after work I got home and changed clothes. I looked down and saw this.
Although the case is cute on its own, I had to copy my friend Hannah and get a vinyl monogram to jazz it up. Monogram ordered from Decal Innovations off of etsy in light pink.
Do you have a phone case that you love and I should put on my next time list. My mom said you can get covers made with a photo of your choice so I may try that one out next.

Tuesday, September 11, 2012
Yesterday morning when I stepped outside to go to work I had to turn back around and grab my jean jacket because it was just a tad too cold for sleeveless. Ok I just checked and it was 66* in the morning and 85* at supper time-not cold but we are reaching for straws here. Since it was so cold we decided to make chili. While I was cooking this squirrel hoped in the window and scared me. He just sat there with his 3 pack of pecans.
Then he started to eat them. He took the green shells off super fast, it was neat to watch. If I had opened the window I think I could have gotten him inside. That is until Claire got a whiff of our new pet. I love our pecan trees but hate the mess the squirrels make with all of the shells. This time I let it slide.
With the chili and pecans all over the ground I guess fall really is coming. To close out summer I made it to the beach one last time over the weekend for our 2nd Annual Beach Trip.
We have a friend that grew up going to the beaches in North Carolina and for the past 2 years we have been trying to show her that the Gulf has some of the most beautiful soft white sand and crystal blue water in the world. Last year we went during a tropical storm and this year the water was super clean but dark because the remnants of Hurricane Issac were back in the gulf trying to stir up trouble. Needless to say I had so much fun in the waves-which were huge. All alone because no one would swim with me. I think that being IN the ocean playing in the waves is my favorite past time.
Here is a picture of the girls that made it this trip. We were only in Destin, FL from Friday night - Sunday but made the most of our time. We ate at Another Broken Egg twice and Dewey Destin's which had the second best meal I've ever tasted the Parmesan Crusted Grouper. Oh and I got about 6 hours of sleep all weekend.
(yes I do have another swimsuit besides the yellow one but this is my favorite)
The people in the tent next to us have been coming down from Indiana for 30 years. They have a group of about 40 people and come the same week every year. So much can change in 30 years but they were still all friends coming down to the beach for the week to have fun together.
I am not a sappy person but, I am so thankful that God blessed me with the friendships that are in my life right now. With today being Sept 11 it is so easy to look back and think about where we were on this day. I was in first year at Auburn. I only had one acquaintance that sat by me in history class and he was the only person that I could call to hang out with because no one wanted to be alone on that day. The crazy thing is that all but one of my supper club friends lived in Auburn at the time, but not one of us knew each other. Thankful that today I can take my pick of who to call. Here is to at least 30 more beach trips!

Eric's office has been undergoing a little reno and he had some new tile installed last week. Perfect for a grass man!
Saturday we went to my BIL's place on the lake. He set up the tv on the dock so we were able to sit outside and watch. We lost (oh well) but there was a lot of Cam on the sidelines air time. Granted not enough (it is never enough) but it got me through the loss. The guys weren't as easily distracted. We also took a boat ride and I found a new house, not sure if I like the house or the vintage Chris-Craft boat-amazing!
Sunday and Monday I worked on my weekend list. I got almost all of it done. I spent 3 hours digging up monkey grass. Ugh to the max. I was going to rip out my bell pepper plant but found 9 pepper and a few babies! Does anyone have any good bell pepper recipes. I admit I prefer raw to cooked but I've got enough to experiment with.
I can't go another month without posting my Photo A Day. July and August to catch up on.
