It's Fall Ya'll!

Well, the leaves have finally started to change colors and fall to the ground here in TN. I'm loveing it! I love fall! I decided that me and Tom-Tom would go outside and take advantage of the great scenery and have a photo op. Here's some pics: *Warning: Possible picture overload coming up!*
 The pumpkin on the left is one Tom-Tom ddecorated.

 Tom-Tom tries to climb the tree!
 No, he didn't climb it. I stuck him up there!
 *Love this one!*
 Tom-Tom is in there somewhere. Can you see him?!

 Pretty Fall tree.
 Playing in the leaves.
 Throwing the leaves.
 Wow! He sure can kick high!

 Another of my faves.

 *Love this one too!*

Cooties & 5QF

We've been trying to nurse a sick (almost) 4 year old back to his normal very active self. Tom-Tom has not been feeling good all week. He seemed like he might have a cold bug at first, then Wednesday night he started to have a bad cough. Wednesday, after we got home from going out to eat and visiting a friend Tom-Tom went straight to sleep. Well, he woke up about an hour later coughing so hard he was throwing up. I took his temp (under his arm) and it was 102.6. I got really worried because he hasn't ever had a temp that high. I then attempted to take it under his tongue he didn't do so well with that one but it still came back 102.2. I was about to take him to the ER, but hubby was like no we'll just let him rest and see how he feels tomorrow. Well, we did things his way and Tom-Tom was still very sick Thursday morning. I took him to his doctor and turns out he has strep throat :-(. I feel so bad for him. He has a really bad barking cough, really high fevers, his voice is crackly/hoarse, runny nose and he's been complaining of headaches. The doctor gave him a prescription for anitbiotics. I hope my little man feels better. We were planning on going to the circus Thursday night, but that got cancelled due to us not wanting to get our whole family (cousins) sick with strep throat :-(. I was really looking forward to going, but oh well. We're planning on going sometime this weekend. The dr said he is only contagious for 24 hrs after he starts taking his mads. :-) I hope I don't catch it! Being 34 weeks pregnant, I already feel like crap most days! The thing that scares me the most is the high fevers. I've been taking every precaution I can to avoid getting sick! I stocked up on hand sanitizer last night and I've been washing my hands like crazy! I also plan to disinfect the whole house after he isn't contagious anymore! lol The last thing me or hubby need to get is strep throat!

Well, enough about having cooties!

Time for 5 Question Friday!! :-D

1. Do you prefer your ice cream in a bowl or in a cone?
Honestly it depends on my mood! I like both or just straight out of the carton! :)

2. What three things do you love the smell of?
Cinnamon, french vanilla and pumpkin.

3. Giftcards or no? (In regards to gift giving...)
Depends on the person. Friends or someone really hard to find a gift for... yes I would give them a gift card.
My family HATES getting gift cards as gifts. They feel gift cards are too impersonal and I agree. I love finding that one gift that makes the other peson smile!

4. What sports did you play in high school if any and do you still play them?
I didn't play any. I don't participate in any now either. I'm lazy (I know!).

Well, I take that back. I will participate in a family game of kickball or volleyball.

5. Were you in band in high school? What instrument did you play?
Nope. I was just there to socialize! I didn't participate in any extra curricular activities.

Well hello there October! I've been waiting for you all summer! :D

I don't like summer very much (even when I'm not pregnant!) Here, in the south, summers are miserable! With temps in the 90-100's and with humidity more than 50% summers here are hot and sticky! Being prego all summer in the south is NOT any fun!

Anyway, I LOVE fall!! As I posted in another post! I also love that it's cooling off! Although, when the seasons change the weather here in TN gets kina crazy! lol You never know what it's going to be. For instance, Saturday night the low was in the 30's all weekend the highs have been in the 60's and by mid-week the highs are going to be back in the 80's! See what I mean! lol Oh I don't mind just glad that the temps aren't in the 100's anymore.

On another note, today I am 33 weeks prego! :D :D Not much longer! I am SOOO ready to get Sophia out of me!! I;m so uncomfortable and this heartburn is driving me CRAZY!

A little PSA: we all know that October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

So, remember to do your self breast exams.

I think I'm going to turn my blog pink for the month of October! :D

Have a great day!
