I almost titled this “September on Dodd Road,” but remembered we’ve since moved. Our street name doesn’t make a fun title, so we’ll go with “September at our House.” Boring. Simple.
We rang in the month celebrating Hazel’s 4th birthday. After the 4th of July she requested a “Flag” birthday party. She loved all the American hoopla so much that she wanted to savor it again for her birthday. It was a great time to open up our new house to our family and a few friends.
We’re just trying to find our rhythm as Hazel began school this month. Over the summer we enjoyed a laid back routine, now we’re finding more structure is needed to our days and weeks in order to fit everything in and be on time. I trust that we’ll find our rhythm.
- We cooked up 15lbs of pork shoulder for pulled pork sandwiches, and it was seriously delicious. You can expect to eat our southern style pulled pork for our next get-together.
- Tried to make pumpkin spice latte in the crockpot, and it was awful. Really, really disgusting. I served it to a friend coming over for a playdate, and it was embarrassing. Blech.
- Been dreaming in Benjamin Moore paint colors as I fret over choosing the perfect color to paint our built-in cabinet, tv stand, and an end table. I’m 0/4 in picking the *right* color. But at the end of the day, none of this really matters.
