Weekly Wrap Up

We have been feverishly preparing our house for something that is (hopefully) happening this week.  I have not written about it on the blog yet for fear that it will not actually happen.  When it does, I can't wait to share it here!! 

 I am just about finished taking and editing pictures of our Master Bedroom and I will be posting that early this week.

In the meantime, here are some of my phone pics from the week.  Matty got his Halloween costume.  Are you a Duck Dynasty fan?  My boys are crazy about that show.  Matty has been wearing his Si costume every chance he gets.  When he wears it, he only answers to "Si".  It is disturbing how much he resembles him.... 

I can't stop thinking about this piece of property Billy and I found on a ride when we were upstate.  We were riding down one of our favorite trails when we saw this sign...

We followed the arrow and found this...

It is absolutely our dream property.  Perfect location.  Perfect view.  We were smitten.  We stood there and talked about our dream house, where the kitchen would go (for me) and where the big garage would be (for Billy).  Alas, we have decided that we can't afford it right now (if only we didn't have 3 college tuitions to pay for in the not so distant future).  Still, I can't stop thinking about that view.

We continued on our ride.  It was a gorgeous day.

And I reminded myself that THESE are the best days.  Days spent with all my boys.  Even as we drive back home to work and school in NJ.

Have a wonderful week!


  1. Courtney, That costume is hilarious and I enjoyed seeing the beautiful Fall pictures.

  2. What a wonderful family you have. Thank you for sharing all of the wonderful scenery. My dad grew up in Rome New York, so it is so nice to see pic's of the surrounding areas!
    Take Care,
