Seven Quick Takes: The Week in Review

This page includes affiliate links. 
1.  As some of you may have seen on Wednesday, we went to a Pumpkin Patch!  'Tis the season, right?   This was more than just a pumpkin patch though.  In addition to the traditional hay ride there was a petting zoo and a train ride.

2.  It's no secret that I love a good thrift shop find.  We stopped a Goodwill outlet while the car was being serviced on Saturday.  (The AC in the car is officially caput -- kind of a shame since we're still hitting high eighties.  Oh well.)  The kids both have three new shirts each, I have a new shirt and pants, Peter found a nice overcoat and a Halloween prop, and Dominic now has a Cars sleeping bag.  Our grand total?  $6.36.

3.  Sunday was my birthday.  We enjoyed a lovely day at Disney.  I rode my favorite ride a non-excessive ten times.  Do you recognize it?

4.  How many of you are still sewing Halloween costumes?  I am.

5.  Enter my yarn giveaway!

6.  I'm finally going to get a serger!  I'm pretty excited about this.  All my seamstresses, can you give me any tips?  Advice?

7.  Catherine is very unpredictable when it comes to what rides she will and won't do at Disney.  She'll ride Star Tours non-stop without blinking an eye, but Ursula on the Little Mermaid ride give her tremors (although not as much now).  I was shocked this week then when she exclaimed that she wanted to ride Tower of Terror.  And she did.  I think it might be a while before she rides it again . . . but I was so proud of her for following through and doing it.
