TTUT-Pumpkin Patch

Darren: Stars Hollow is charming. The last time we drove through there, there was a pumpkin patch.
Lorelai: Sounds like us.
Darren: In March.
Lorelai: Oh, that would be the year the pumpkins arrived late. -Gilmore Girls

  • We are currently in the middle of refinancing our house. We thought the rate we got last year was low, but now they’ve dropped into the lowest of the low. I’m thrilled that we’ll be saving about a $100 a month, and a ton of money over the life of the loan. ย It’s a streamline refi so it should be relatively easy.
  • Our goal is to pay off the rest of our loans with that extra savings a month, and work on becoming debt free in the next few years. Now wouldn’t that just be incredible?
  • I had a lot of fun visiting with Miss PhD last weekend. I’m looking forward to having her at our Halloween party and meeting some of my other friends.
  • Match’s vacation is almost over. I am so glad we decided to stick around here. He ended up making a gate for a dog run for Monkey. Look at how talented my hubby is!

  • Match was able to get out and do some hunting. I stayed home because I wanted him to have his guy time. He took pictures for me and just looks so darn cute in his camo.

  • Last week we went to the pumpkin patch, one of my favorite Fall activities.
  • It was 75 degrees out, but being around all those pumpkins made it feel like fall.

  • Tonight we’re heading over to Good Couple’s to visit. The boys are going hunting and us girls are going to catch up and spend time with the twins. I can’t wait!


    i looooovvvvve pumpkin patches. love love love. you’re right. there is just something about them that makes fall seem so real.

    that’s so great about refinancing your house. hard to believe that you’ll be saving so much money each month!! crazy how that works.

    you and match are the perfect diy couple!!

    You guys are so good about spending so much time with your friends. I need to get better about that.

    We really intended on making it to a pumpkin patch this year because we loved doing that last year, but Halloween is sneaking up on us and I’m not sure we’re going to have time. We’ll probably be the losers that buy our pumpkin at Walmart.


    Looks like you guys had a great time together at the pumpkin patch!! So much fun!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you’re having a good week!


    I loved going to the pumpkin patch even before I had kids; it’s so fun. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Emma likes your PUMPKINS! LOL! She said, “Whoa…look at doze punkins!”. She cracks me up!

    Yes, we refinanced last October and did it for 15 years and still managed to knock $300 a month off our payment each month. Crazy!!

    Sorry I’m just now making the rounds. It’s been a long day for me but I’m proud to announce that I’m BRACE-FREE! YAAAAY!

    Love your face! Thanks for linking up!


    Pumpkin patches are great! They make it fall even if we were in t shirts… And sandals… Yay fall!


    Beautiful pictures and I’m glad you had a great vacation with Match! Fall is such a great season and pumpkin patches are so fun! We are going to one this weekend. I can’t wait to get lost in the corn maze ๐Ÿ™‚

    Can I tell you something? I have no clue how much our mortgage even is….I’m clueless and kinda like it that way.

    We transitioned into faux pumpkins here, the heat is brutal. They cannot be carved until the 30th and are rank but Halloween night. I can’t say that I miss it.


    You guys are just so stinkin’ adorable!


    I just visited a pumpkin patch last weekend, too, and it was wonderful. Definitely one of my favorite fall activities ๐Ÿ™‚

    Match did a great job with the gate!

    Sounds like you are living life, momma!
