Once we got all cleaned up, we decided to go to Anderson Orchard in Mooresville. We checked out all the apples and decided to get some Stayman variety of apples. When we got back to Plainfield, we ran into Ace to get some jars for the applebutter I intended to make. Before dinner we stopped at Hollywood Video to get a couple movies. We had a rent one, get one free coupon. But when we checked out, the guy behind the counter said that since it was T.J.'s birthday, he got the one for free as well! Then it was off to El Jaripeo for yummy Mexican cuisine. Please note that everywhere we went, we got front row parking. Not one place we went did we have to park more than car deep. T.J. was getting star treatment everywhere we went. After we got home, we cored and sliced apples and got everything in the crockpot. Then we sat back and watched Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
All in all, I hope T.J. had a great day! I really had fun celebrating his birthday with him. The countdown is on to the big 3-0 next year!!

In other news, I finally tried my new curlers, and it was a huge failure! I took a picture so I could do a before and after, but the after was pretty bad. I got some tips from Keriann, so hopefully the next time will work better. T.J. and I went today and got a safety deposit box at the bank. Talk about feeling like a grown-up! I also got my new USB lava lamp that I ordered off of eBay in today (I guess I am not too grown-up yet). Isn't it cute?

After I got home, T.J. and I decided to go on a stroll. We went to our favorite park, Swinford Park. It is so pretty. We really enjoyed walking in the cool, brisk air. Not to mention the beautiful colors of the trees!!

We also stopped at Hobby Lobby -- one of T.J.'s very least places to stop! I picked up a few items that I needed to finish making some Christmas surprises:)
I am so excited for Christmas this year. I can't wait to do my Christmas baking!! I already checked out the baking aisle at Sam's. I think I will just buy a 5 lb. bag of sugar there instead of going to the regular store for smaller bags!!

Mom, Scott, Keriann & Derrick came for a visit this past weekend. We had so much fun having them here. On Friday the girls went shopping on Mass Ave., Zionsville, Sam's Club, and Metropolis. While we were doing that, the boys went to the race car museum, go-karting, and bowling.
Saturday was the Iowa v. Indiana game. What a blast! Tailgating was actually in a beautiful setting, kind of like camping. I think the game would be considered a blowout -- IA 45, IN 9.
