Lately Through Photos

Things are busy with school and the rest of life in full swing, but I'm determined to keep my little blog going, even if it means checking in a bit less often.  Here's what's been going on in the month of October.

Oliver turned 6!
Now that the birthday celebration is over, it's time for doggie boot camp to begin.  The vet informed us that Oliver weighs 47 pounds, which is pretty ridiculous for a beagle.  He needs to lose at least 7 pounds stat.  Poor guy...he just loves food so much!

Wendy continues to crack us up everyday by acting like the world's most privileged princess.
I'm loving all things fall. 
Pumpkin everything!
Halloween treats for our neighbors. 
Beautiful heirloom carrots. 
Fresh-squeezed apple juice.
So much ethnic food.  Jay and I are obsessed with Ethiopian and Moroccan. 
We've also eaten dinners like this many a night.  Can't go wrong with tofu+veggies+grains. 
And this sweet potato and white bean pasta recipe from the Humane Society was a big hit earlier this week.
It sort of reminded me of my very favorite sweet potato mac & cheese, but less cheesy and sweet, more savory and creamy.  

Jay's volleyball team is still dominating the competition.  I'm looking forward to going to Dallas tomorrow to cheer them on against their toughest opponent. 
When he's not coaching, Jay stays busy with various projects around the house, like hanging the lawn mower from the ceiling.  It's genius!
Also on the agenda: a trip out to California next Thursday to visit my friend Catie!  Catie is fighting recurrent breast cancer and has been a real trooper over the past few weeks.  Can't wait to see her along with lots of other friends from college. 
I'm off to start enjoying my fall break!
