  1. You still need to do a before and after of your indoor porch with the new furniture!

    I took a doggy CPR and safety class last summer but I am still terrified of having to do CPR or the heimlich on a dog. I feel like I would tense up and not know what to do.

  2. 75% off - i love those prices. we always buy our seasonal stuff off-season...that's how we got our christmas decorations for 90% off LOL

  3. Yikes! Poor Bruno! Looks like you had a good month other than that ... and therapy. I hope it's working for you now.

  4. Love good deals and what? You're house is paid off......woohoo, what a GREAT feeling!!

  5. I'm equal parts happy and sad the sun is going down earlier!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  6. Congrats on paying off your house, that is so fantastic!! Way to go.

  7. What an exciting month with the house pay off, new furniture, lots of time with those precious girls in your group. Now if the fall weather stays...I will be happy!

  8. Love the coffee cup cozies. So cute. I made one this weekend on the loom, but I didn't make it quite long enough. Going to try some other styles too.

  9. Love that the house is paid off!! And those coffee sleeves <3 ;)
    Poor little Bruno. And poor you!!
    That model is gorgeous!! What a pretty picture!

  10. Very cute coffee sleeves! Sorry about Bruno. :( September was a great month!

  11. I loved that photo of the horse in the sunset. Just great. Enjoy your October - and when you find your running inspiration again, perhaps you could give me a hint as to where mine might be hiding?

  12. I forgot that your house is paid off. That is amazing. I hope October is even better for you!

  13. Poor Bruno! That's got to just freak you out every time...he's so lucky to have a mama like you to take care of him!

    Also, CONGRATS on making your last house payment---I can only IMAGINE how amazing that feels! What are you going to do with all your extra cash now? Travel the world?!

  14. Congratulations on paying off your house!!! When we paid off our old car, I was ecstatic, so I can't (yet) imagine how paying off the house feels!

  15. Yay for paying off your house. As always I'm swooning over your knitted items! :) So cute! Gosh the world is just hurting so much this year. It's so hard to take. Xo - Alexandra

    Simply Alexandra: My Favorite Things

  16. I love that you knit your frustrations away. Maybe that's why I need to get back to knitting??? I have 4 projects in the works!!

  17. Is it you that we have to thank for this series? I know Sarah mentioned a Rebecca as the inspiration behind the idea of SaD, but not sure which Rebecca. If so, thank you so much!! Would love to have your email address to add to the email I send out for the girls who have joined the link-up through me via Sarah!

    Hope your facial therapy has begun feeling better and relieving pain rather than causing it. What does that therapy entail?

    Your senior is gorgeous. Such a pretty portrait. Glad to see a senior photo without a velvet drape.

    Yay, YOU, for running, and cooler temps, even if they were only short-lived. We hare enjoying the feel of fall in El Paso but with the promise/threat of a return to summer coming for the weekend. Oh, to sleep with the windows open.
