My love/hate relationship with Halloween

I love the super cute Halloween costumes!  I hate that we had lots of scary kid costumes at school yesterday.  I love that one teacher brought her itty bitties as Luigi and Mario.  I hate that we had a couple boys dressed as girls... there's something truly weird about wanting to dress up like a girl when you're a fourth grader.  Oh, yea I do love these adorable Halloween pics of my precious pup.

She doesn't like her spider hoodie when I make her wear the hood.

Love the lady bug!  Speaking of lady bugs... I hate that Farmboy's house (my future home) has lady bugs that infiltrate every fall when it gets cold.  We've got to figure out where they're coming in.
Back to Halloween.  I have always loved and hated this holiday.  I really do love seeing the kids that I know and love having such a great time!  This year I hate that I can't pig out on whatever candy I want.  I've joined Weight Watchers, so I'm trying to be good.

In other news... I'm going dress shopping today!  I would love to post some pictures, however, I know Farmboy loves to read the blog. And we wouldn't want him to have any hints now would we?
Hope you all have a terrific Halloween!

Talking Tuesday.... Yea, yea, I know it's been a loooong time...

I am really really cold!  At recess duty today I thought my fingers were going to fall off.  It's been yucky outside for all of October.  Also, my car is in the shop.  Which is almost alway bad news!  However, even though I'm frozen and my car was broken, I'm in a great mood.

I can't really explain it, guess I've just been better at looking at things half full lately.  My car was still under waranty, so I only have to pay for the alignment.  My amazing father is going to do the other stuff, that the shop acts like they need to do.  My fiance was sweet enough to come pick me up last night, when I dropped my car off at the shop.  He then let me borrow his car, so I wouldn't be inconvenienced.  We got to have a relaxing evening watching some very entertaining sitcoms.  Oh yea, and the biggest thing that keeps me as a glass half full kind of girl lately, I'm gettin' married!

Anyway, I'm in a great mood even with super cold weather.... What makes you happy even in yucky weather??

By popular demand...

Since apparently I've been a slacker, I thought I'd better post a couple wedding ideas. 

Guests can write little notes and hang on the tree branches.  Then later I can take all the notes and create a book of well wishes.  Maybe a good idea for the reception.

I really love this decorating option without the brown ribbon.  I've really had trouble finding my outdoorsy barn-like venue.  So I may not get what I want.  But for now the search is still on for the perfect reception location.  This area just does not have good locations at all.  No restored barns or anything, trust me I've looked!  Any ideas for a fun outdoor location that's on the rustic side??
Thank you for pics.

Surprise Guest Post!

Howdy sweet friends! Glamorous Newlywed here, bringing you a surprise (as in Miss Lovin a Farm Boy had no idea this was going to happen :) guest post AND a little bloggy makeover!

As you know, Miss Lovin-A-Farm-Boy recently got engaged {super-exciting, OMG} to her Farm Boy! I decided that this warranted a little blog face-lift to reflect this fabulous event! (secret alterior motive: hoping this will inspire Miss LAFB to post more wedding ideas/inspiration. Ssshhhh. Don't tell her.)

Here's a little inspiration to get her started...

Insurance Companies Suck... plus first wedding idea

I'm sick... yet again.  Apparently schools are breeding ground for germs... uh duh!  I haven't received my new insurance card yet, so I've had to call about 6 different 800 numbers, talk to my HR lady 4 times, and it took her calling them twice to finally get it fixed!  UGH!  I think I spent a good 2 hours messing with that crap.  Then went to the doctor and was there for a solid 2 hours too.  Apparently everyone and their brother is sick.  They made me wear a mask too.

I'm so happy to be back home waiting on my Rx to be filled, that I thought I'd give you a peak of one idea I'm thinking about for the wedding.  We've decided for a May wedding, after school is out.

What do y'all think of this for color scheme?  I think I'll let my 2 bridesmaids pick their own style in this color.  We're also thinking about having our reception in a barn or outside.

Thank you for the great picture.

Big Excitement at the Pumpkin Patch

So we started out our Sunday fairly ordinarily. FB and I went to church with his sister and mother. We came back to the farm and worked on getting ready to open the pumpkin patch for the afternoon. My parents had planned to come out for pumpkins, then for lunch. FB had bigger plans. When my parents arrived we hung out checked out the attractions, even went through a corn maze. Then FB called me out to help him pick some pumpkins. We all went out to the actual pumpkin patch area, where he was out in the middle. He told me to come get this pumpkin, which sounded pretty normal to me. Then when he hands it to me he turns it around. It said, "Kara, will you marry me?" I screamed then tackled him.

He really is in there somewhere, see the maroon hat?? He had put the ring on the stem, but I totally missed that. I was too excited about the whole will you marry me thing. :)
We both wore these goofy grins for the rest of the day. After we all calmed down a little, my parents picked the pumpkins they'd come out for. We also had an amazing lunch from FB's mom.
Didn't he do a great job on the ring?? I spent the afternoon calling people in between families coming to the pumpkin patch. Can't wait to tell everyone at work tomorrow! I will def. be in need of opinions on numerous wedding ideas for the next few months, so stay tuned. :)
