Grateful Heart Monday

Ember Grey

Oh Grateful Heart Monday, I have missed you...
Thank you to the beautiful Emily @ Ember Grey Blog for this fantastic link up. Let's start our week with a grateful and happy heart.

This weekend was full of fun, a dash of shenanigans, and sprinkled with an ER visit. 
My dear friend, and hostess, Liz, dislocated her shoulder getting into the lake on Saturday, but rallied harder than anyone I've ever met. She was back at Girls Weekend within a few hours and came out dancing with us at Franky and Louie's Saturday night! 
I had so much fun! I have never been more grateful for great friends! I have had two weekends worth of my favorite ladies and it was just what my soul needed.

I didn't get a chance to snap many photos, plus what happens at Girls Weekend stays at Girls Weekend, but here are a few that I did manage to capture.
My view on Saturday. It was the perfect weekend to be at the lake!

My friend Sheri and I post dance break and wearing our Girls Weekend shirts.

I am also grateful for a husband who is such a fun daddy. Matt and the Littles had a fun weekend eating pizza and corndogs, exploring the nature center, going to Church, having breakfast with my Grandparents and visiting Papa Toby at his meat shop. Mason went on and on about his fun weekend with daddy when I got home yesterday. 

My last bit of gratefulness is for Fall's pending arrival. It is my favorite time of year and I am already counting down the minutes until our apple picking trip, decorating the house, pumpkin patches, hayrides and Halloween costume prep. Our neighborhood does Halloween in style. Last year we had almost 400 trick or treaters... This year we know what to expect and it will be even more fun than last year.
Sheri and I did a little shopping on our way home from the lake and I picked up a few more pieces for our Haunted Halloween Home. 
I am ready! Bring it on Autumn! 

How was your weekend?
Are you prepared for all things pumpkin?
