little punkin


This morning we took Ethan to Bedner's, a local farm and market, for their annual pumpkin patch. Experiencing all of Ethan's first holidays this year has been one of the things I've been most excited for, Halloween included. Bedner's was packed with babies and toddlers adorned in the cutest Halloween and fall themed outfits, posing by the hay bales and pumpkins.

I took my teenage sister to Bedner's last year, eager to pretend in my mind she was still young enough to enjoy the pumpkin patch and posing for photographs along with the small children in their costumes. She had sweetly thanked me for taking her but asked if maybe we could head home, or out to lunch instead, and then noted that I should just have a baby so I would stop dragging her to such places. Not that she minded, she quickly interjected, to save my feelings. The irony of it all is that Ethan was in my belly then, albeit only for about a week and unbeknownst to anyone else including myself or my husband. I had remarked about how nauseous I felt and attributed it to driving thirty minutes out to Bedner's since I sometimes get motion sickness. I came home and wanted to throw up, blaming this on the pizza that my sister and I had stopped for on the way home. Nope, it was Ethan, hiding out in my belly all along!

This year we got to skip the nausea and fatigue and throw in the excitement that came with having Ethan on the outside and being able to join the ranks of parents pleading for their child to "just smile! For one picture! Smile for a picture for grandma!" Dressed in his fall finest, we posed for pictures and walked amongst the pumpkins until the Florida sun decided to come through in full force. My husband helped Ethan select the perfect pumpkin -- well, second to Ethan himself, of course! -- and we were on our way.

  12. Ce sac cartable Michael Kors est si universel qu'il pourrait plaire à tout le monde. Dans cet article, je vais essayer de passer en revue les caractéristiques principales et les éléments qui distinguent ce sac à main des autres.

    L’extérieur de ce fourre-tout Michael Kors est un cuir métallisé de laiton froncé et froncé. Si vous connaissez les sacs à main Michael Kors, vous savez que ce cuir sera doux et souple. Les deux grandes poignées supérieures sont attachées au sac avec quelques centimètres de chaînes dorées, puis les moitiés supérieures des bretelles présentent le même cuir couleur laiton.

    La diversité des couleurs et la taille utilisable de ce sac le rendent parfait pour un usage quotidien. Les poches intérieures ne manquent pas pour aider à garder les choses en ordre. Il y a des endroits parfaits pour votre téléphone ou votre Blackberry. Le zip top empêche les malfaiteurs de saisir votre sac dans un bar et aide également à contenir tout ce qui se trouve à l'intérieur lorsque vous courez pour créer ce train.
