summing things up {september}

september 2014

School started. Marching band competitions. Emilio turned 17 and had his braces removed. Leaves began to change. The last of my senior photo sessions this year (next up:  Class of 2016). Delivered a meal to my folks’ house. Made cookies. Got a snowblower. And bought our first car without a loan. Apple Slaw. Went to Denver. Booked another wedding for next year! Made apple & sage stuffed pork chops for the IF:Table ladies. Filled up on Pumpkin Spice yogurt, oatmeal, cocoa, lattes & pretty much anything else I could get my hands on. Worked on my summer Smashbook. Homecoming picturesGot my baby fix.  Began shopping for retreat prizes!  Made Baked Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal and Baked Apple Pie Oatmeal.  Finally hung a piece of artwork that had been sitting on the floor for months.  Started walking again with Tony.

A good month.

if:table {september 2014}

We gathered this month over a fall-themed menu that included Apple-Stuffed Pork Chops w/Fresh Sage & Walnuts, Buttermilk Bacon Mashed Potatoes, Apple-Slaw & Baked Pumpkin Pudding.

Our Conversation Cards were centered around the topic of prayer, which lead to some pretty deep discussion.  In fact I was so caught up in what we were talking about I totally forgot to snap a picture of the ladies at this month’s table!

My only option was to capture the aftermath. :|

I will be hosting one more dinner before my surgery on October 29th and likely not again until after the holidays, we’ll see how the whole recovery process goes.  One thing is certain:  I will not forget to take a picture next time!

Homecoming was last weekend!  The theme for this year’s dance reflected in the mural above.  I had a session in Chanhassen early Saturday morning and swung by my faaaaaaaavorite little flower shop to pick up both the wrist corsage and boutonniere on behalf of my son and his date. [The Vinery did an incredible job; totally worth the trip to Jordan.]

The kids met for pictures at a friend’s house before heading out for the evening.

Little did I know back in August while photographing THIS high school senior, my son was getting to know Nathan’s sister at band camp!

Love it when things like that happen. :)

what teen boys do {pull all-nighters}

In addition to gathering in large groups, drinking massive amounts of caffeine, going to Applebees & starting their evening at 9:00 pm…

Teen boys like stay up ALL NIGHT.  (While they did snag a morning ‘nap’ – it hardly counted as anything in my book.)
