This past long weekend I went on the funnest trip to Disneyland. And let me tell ya, I was happier than a bird with a churro crumb over there. It was so much fun to be in Disney and even more fun to be surrounded by some of my favorite people in the universe. Earlier in the week Eliza sent us a random text one morning throwing it out there that we should make this happen. Some convincing of the parentals and the purchasing of a ticket were basically all it took. My Monday and Tuesday were filled with obnoxious screams and contagious laughs as we rode tower of terror at least 10 times and ate an uncountable number of churro bites. 
 the world needs more people like my friends.
 as we went around the park the reoccurring question was asked, "Disneyland or photoshoot?" (knowing me, photoshoot) but why not both?
The most amazing thing I've ever tried in my life: pear soda. Whaaaa? 
Also, not pictured but we basically lived off of churro bites. If i had a dollar for every time we passed up a churro stand, I would have zero dollars. If I had a nickel for every time I found cinnamon in my shirt, I would have a couple nickels.

Sweet Suites + Political Parties

 For the past few weeks we have joined the workforce. As this past election was approaching one of my close friend's mom was in need of our help in her office. Our days were spent campaigning, calling in behalf of candidates, over-the-phone surveying, and a lot of leaving voicemails & getting hung up on. We also put up a few signs and blew up a few red, white, & blue balloons here and there. Our hard work paid off in the most wonderful way when we were invited to attend the election party the other night. It was such a fun time getting dressed up for an evening and pretending to fit in amongst the politicians and Las Vegas socialites. 
a little thought of the night ^^

For as long as I can remember October has always been such a magical month. Maybe it's the new crisp and cool temperatures or perhaps just the promise of new beginnings and a fresh season of life. And this October did NOT disappoint. This month has been full of adventure and some absolutely unforgettable times. 


I am absolutely convinced that the only thing in this world that the two most last minute things in the universe are English essays to turnitin.com and Halloween costumes. All in a few hours I was mary poppins, the statue of liberty, a ninja, someone from duck dynasty (?), a witch, and then finally a sheep. Not to mention the spontaneous last minute sheep ears (because just wooly sweaters on their own were not good enough). Literally minutes before it was time to go we were hot glueing cotton balls to ear shaped bubble wrap cutouts. Yes, bubble wrap. But I'm happy to say the flock really came through.
 Wishing you a fantastic Halloween from my herd to yours. 
 I still don't know what these two were supposed to be
look closely… ^^
we couldn't have asked for a better farmer. 
This night was so grand I could've jumped for joy. Hannah actually did.



Remember last year when we went to the pumpkin patch? I do. And it is so crazy to me how much has changed since then. I think that's what I love most about traditions- that you can take a little step back and realize how far you have come. They are kind of like little life bookmarks or something. It's funny when I think about this exact time last year. I never would have thought that things could change so much simply by going to bed and waking up 365 times (I'm glad that me & Lexi's pumpkin patch trips have remained constant though). But I can't help but wonder what next October will be like. 
I have really been loving the autumn feelings lately. The chilly mornings, early sunsets, and of course pumpkin patch photo shoots...
 we could not have been more thrilled to find an edible apple
possibly the best shot of the day^^
 and it would have been impossible to finish off the day without some apple cider and mini donuts.
