Stitch Fix #13

This fix was an interesting one.  Honestly, my initial reaction was that I wouldn't want to keep anything.  Here's what I got:
Leya Thermal Knit Short Sleeve Top by Tart

Benfeld Tiered Colorblocked Mini Skirt by Mystree
Larsen Sheer Detail Striped Knit Top by Laila Jayde
Mariella Bali Print Wrap Scarf - Spun Scarves by Subtle Luxury

Sam Hi-Lo Short Sleeve Tee by Pomelo
I  eventually conceded that this gray Pomelo top would be a good staple for my wardrobe.  Gray shirts are not my favorite so I really don't own any.  I've actually worn this top a lot and grown to love it.

Every month I look forward to receiving my 'Fix' of clothes that were picked specifically for me.

September 2014

We've had a lot going on that I've failed to post on the blog.  I won't go all the way back and try to catch up, but I will do a little recap of last month.  

For over a year we've been wanting to check out The Truck Stop in the Crossroads in Kansas City.  It's a round up of some of KC's food trucks but they only have it the first Friday of the month.  We finally made it there last month and braved the cool weather to enjoy some yummy food.

We experienced the beauty of Kansas sunflower fields for the first time.  We were able to schedule a mini family photo session but I'm keeping most of the pictures under wraps until Christmas card time.  This is just a quick one I snapped of Marlie with my camera.

As a family we participated in the Run for the Fallen 5K here at Fort Leavenworth.  We've done the run both here and at Fort Campbell.  It means a lot to us to have the opportunity to honor and remember the servicemembers who have given their life for our country.

On September 11, we also participated in Team RWB's Moving Tribute to honor those who lost their lives on 9/11.  We kept the flag moving from sun up to sun down that day.  Bryan ran for an hour with his buddy, Dave, and my friend, Lindsay, joined me and Emma.

 We visited Cider Hill Family Orchard on a beautiful Saturday.  We picked a 1/2 bushel of apples and enjoyed making all sorts of goodness with them.  I'd say the highlights were definitely the apple sauce and apple cake though!

I'm not really "crafty" but I do enjoy making crafts when I've got some good guidance.  I get together once a month with a group of girlfriends and we always do something different.  Last month we made wreaths.  I'm not a huge fan of burlap wreaths, but I had seen online where someone made a pumpkin wreath.  I decided to give that a shot and for my first try, I'm satisfied with how it turned out.  
I'm also a regular at the thrift stores in town.  I came across this ugly brown cart one day and felt like it had potential but didn't quite know what to do with.  I soon regretted not buying it and went back the next morning to pick it up.  I bought some teal spray paint to fix it up and now it looks so much better.
