Fall Friday

It's Friday and I have an exciting weekend ahead. Lots of my favorite things crammed into one weekend. Couldn't ask for a better time.

Today I am linking up with Karli from September Farm.

One. I got myself a pretty new iPhone 6s. My old phone just hasn't been working right. Especially after downloading the new software updates. It has been slow, freezes and doesn't get all my text messages. I wasn't getting group texts, some regular texts and my texts were coming in as emails ( When I got my pretty new Rose Gold iPhone 6s, all sorts of texts came flooding in. Sorry friends if you texted me and I never got back to you.

Two. We have family photos today. The girls grandparents bought them tons of new Fall clothes so I washed those and picked out the cutest outfits for them. And R and I paired our clothing kind of match the girls. Basically we will look put together, but not all matchy-matchy. I can't wait to get these done. We haven't had any since the girls' 5 month photos. Get ready for Christmas cards!

Three. It's Apple Hill weekend. Sunday to be exact. My favorite Fall weekend is finally here. And this time we get to share it with our baby girls (who are just shy of 10 months!). We will be picking apples, eating apple pie, grabbing apple donuts (my favorite), drinking apple beer and wine, picking pumpkins and perusing all the crafts. I can't wait!

Four. Football. It is homecoming for the Wolf Pack and the forecast is calling for 70 degrees which will be perfect for the 1 pm start. The Pack isn't doing that well, but we need to support them, especially during homecoming week. We will have the girls with us this weekend and are hoping they do just as well as they did the last game they went to.

Five. The girls got their ears pierced Monday. We have been going back and forth on this for months whether we wanted to get them done or not. But we decided it was a good time to get them. Plus the piercer told us it is better to get them done before they turn one or wait until they are five. Before one means they won't play with them and after five means they can take care of them and won't rip them out. People often confuse our girls or call them boys (even when they have bows or pink on) and we hope this will help. Plus they look so cute with their new earrings. I am dying over their cuteness. 

Sutton went first. I sat down in the chair and put her on my lap. They marked her ears and then pierced them at the same time. She was fine until they pierced them. Then she cried for about 10 minutes (so sad) and then was happy again. Sutton got an aquamarine color. Avery went second and she did the same. But she only cried for about two minutes after the piercing. Avery got purple or amethyst. The girls did so well and got lots of cuddles after. We have to clean their earrings and ears three times a day which is pretty easy. We just use a q-tip with the solution they gave us and put it on the front of the ears and back. 

Here is photographic evidence (sorry they are kind of blurry. The girls never sit still anymore.)
Hope you have a good weekend! 


  1. Can't wait to see the fall pictures! I want some done of us too. They look so cute with earrings. Looking forward to more pictures. Isn't it amazing that people confuse them as boys with pink and bows on? Crazy people!

    1. Thanks! I got outfits picked out yesterday, and their bows arrived just in time. I can't wait to see how these come out. Hopefully they are happy this afternoon for them. And thank you so much on the earrings. The girls love them and don't even touch them. They don't bother them at all. Thankfully.

  2. Loved seeing your photos of the girls and hearing about your getting their little ears pierced. Think you were a smart mommy getting her ears pierced now when mommy can care for them, plus they looks so darn cute with little earrings. We did our daughter at this age and everyone loved how cute she looked with little earrings. They are soO adorable with their purple and aquamarine little sparkly earrings.

    Promise in their pictures, they are saying "thank you" for the "gift of pierced ears." This was the perfect age to do them when they can't remember having it done and sweet mommy taking such good care of her adorable little newly pierced ears so she can grow up pretty like her mom.

    I always dreamed of having a little girl with cute little pierced ears. I was unsure when to do it, but our pediatrician advised me to do it early and gave me some tips (write me for more info) for moms having their daughters ears pierced.

    There is nothing sweeter than a little girl (except twin girls) with little pierced earrings poking through their hair especially with little pearls. Our daughter is three now and is girlie-girl and loves changing her earrings to match her dresses.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words. I love having my girls ears being pierced. It has been pretty easy cleaning them and caring for them. Plus they just looks so darn cute with them.

      We just found out from our pediatrician on Friday (when the girls got their booster shots) that she could have done them. I didn't know that. But she said the place we went to is very reputable and does a good job. Our girls earrings are centered so well.

      I really hope they enjoy them and are happy that they are done (when they get older).

      I will write you so you can send me some tips. That would be awesome.
