fall decor





you may or may not have noticed these little pumpkins in the previous post...
i wanted some fall decor, found this tutorial and decided to try it out.
they were fun to make but they would have been more fun if i had had the proper tools... i ended up chipping a chunk of my tooth pulling the needle while making the lines on the pumpkin.. that's the last time i pull a needle using my teeth!


so this morning i noticed daniel staring at me with a really ugly expression... he proceeds to reach for my hair as if he was going to get some fuzz out of it or something.

this is what happened next...

daniel (in a really disgusted tone): "you have a gray hair!" 
me: "ahhh don't pull it, i love my gray hairs!" 
daniel: "but it's nasty... it's so long"  
me: "don't touch me! leave it alone!" 
daniel: "ewwww that's just gross"

bummer, my plan was to just go gray naturally... guess that isn't happening anymore!

the fam and i are headed to santa barbara to see my dad tomorrow. my aunt from wisconsin is in town and my brother and his family will be in town from san francisco. we'll be celebrating my dad's 61st birthday. i love going up north and seeing my family! on sunday tyler has another WSA (world surfing association) contest in ventura so we'll be there bright and early for that. 
speaking of surfing, at our old local spot where my boys would surf (surf beach in lompoc, ca) there was a fatal shark attack on a sponger (body boarder) - scary! he was a twenty year old UCSB student... so sad. whenever we go up to lompoc to stay with my mom, my boys always surf near there... now it makes me more nervous than it normally does. ugh. 
my prayers go out to that boys family.

okay, that's about all...

oh wait...

happy birthday dad!
my dad and my sisters daughter, edyn, the summer before last

you are the BEST dad ever and an amazing big papa. i love you more than you know!

hope you're having a fun weekend lovely lady!

your little pumpkins are cute! so glad you're putting your crafty pants on again these days, since you're so good at all things crafty :).

sad day about the gray hair....BUT if it's any consolation i'm only 26 and i've already had plenty of gray hairs, but luckily i've just been able to pluck them out thus far and haven't had to dye. craig wants me to go gray naturally, but i always tell him no way. not happening. you'll be beautiful gray or not though :).

xo. thanks.
xo. thanks.

Great pumpkins, and so sorry to hear about your tooth! Need to send a couple of thimbles your way! And gray hairs.. ya, I'm hawaiian and have been getting white hairs for years now (29 now). I think I'll get a 'skunk' stripe like my aunt. Why fight it, right?
