Our Maple Tree

Keeping up with The Maples

Crazy Monday, Much Better Tuesday

So Monday was… well… Monday. It is always so hard to get back into the swing of things after a long weekend. We both worked and volunteered on Saturday. Had a fun filled Sunday, so by the time Monday came around we were beat.

So for dinner on Monday I picked out an easy recipe for dinner. Black beans and spinach burritos. Well, when we got home we ended up not having half of the things we needed to make this dinner. So then we had to improvise…! Breakfast for dinner! We made maple pancakes with bacon. And since it was a rough day at work, whipped cream vodka and orange juice was the drink of choice! (Tastes like an orange creamsicle, for those of you who just made a face while reading “whipped cream vodka”. I was skeptic too, but it is delicious!)

And as promise, a picture of Randy and his mad skills!


Today was much better! The reason because of a wonderful surprise after work. We went grocery shopping (to get the other half of our dinner that we were suppose to have last night!) and stumbled across… wait for it… OCTOBERFEST!

This means fall is officially here! Well, actually, fall for me, pretty much started the day after July 4th! But this… this Octoberfest… this just seals the deal for me! Ready to bring out the boots, the hats, the hot apple cider, the pumpkin, the fall decor and smells! Sorry! Fall is the best time of year!

And to top off my day, I got these in the mail!!


Love these straws! They just make me smile every time I look at them!

Hope everyone is having a great week so far!
