    Love this post and all the pictures. Cute jeans by the way! They remodeled our Gap and I never go in there anymore; the layout is terrible.

      Aw, thanks! I love YOU!

      Sad about your Gap:( It’s one of my favorite stores – the sale racks anyway. There are usually some good deals online too!

    Cute post! Things making me smile today: My hubby took the whole day off. Enjoying family day & the fact that my son received the Student of the Month for Self-Discipline today for the month of October. I’m a proud mama! 🙂 That and I got an incredible run in this morning in near freezing temps. Nothing like cold weather to motivate you to run back to a warm house 🙂

      So fun that he took the whole day off! Love it when Jon does that.

      You have a LOT to be proud of! I’m sure there is nothing better than having your child recognized for something so admirable. Self discipline is one of the most important traits a person can have IMO!

    Great pictures today. They look classic.

    Things that make me happy:
    Finished to-do lists
    Reading in bed on a foul weather day
    Breakfast every morning (yes. really.)
    Finishing a hard workout

      Thanks, girl

      Love your smile list. And I totally agree on the breakfast every morning – a couple of days this past week I went without it for various reasons, and it affected my whole day!

    Yes yes yes! To-do lists, black skinny jeans… bread!? A blogger after my own heart! I love the simple things, and you capture them so well. I’m glad you found a way to love the pumpkin butter, of course it’s on top of homemade bread.;)

      haha! Yes, we must have a lot in common:)

      I realized if I thought of the pumpkin butter as more of a jam than a butter, it really is quite delicious!

    Glad to get a glimpse at one of my favorite couples. Maybe I’ll see you around D town sometime.

      Hey girl! So fun to hear from you. This is pretty much why I don’t update facebook enough – not enough time! I need to get on that though.

      I’d love to see you in Duncan sometime. Maybe we’ll be able to fit it in sometime around the holidays? Facebook me or let me know here when you figure out the days you might be there. miss you:)

    I think you take the prettiest pictures in the blogworld. Can we meet up and have you give me a lesson? 🙂

    • candice November 7, 2010 at 12:14 pm #

      Your comment totally made my day. I’m humbled that you would even think to say that:)

      We definitely should meet up in OKC sometime!

    trying a new coffee shop made me happy today.

    • candice November 7, 2010 at 12:15 pm #

      oooh, so fun. I love new coffee shops, especially small local ones:)

    Staying in bed a little longer than usual made me smile 🙂

    • candice November 7, 2010 at 12:16 pm #

      Yes! That almost always makes me smile. Unless it makes me late;)

    My boyfriend getting a job in my city, and knowing in a week he’ll be here and not 6 hours away!

      I can only imagine how excited you must be! So happy for you:) I honestly admire you for being able to do a long distance relationship.
