Friday Flashback 9/27/13



Happy Friday everyone! This week has been all about welcoming in the fall season for me. The leaves are turning and there is a chill in the air.

I have had a fire burning in my fireplace for last few days. Which makes me uber happy because I love the fireplace smell. I know, weird right?

I dug into my candle stash and have already used up all of my pumpkin spice candles, so those are on my must buy list.

And the best of all is

the deer are back in my yard!!! 


OhhEmmmGeeeee you have no idea how happy that makes this city girl! 

Every time I see them I am like a little kid, all giggles. 

So you can imagine how happy I was when 3. Yes not 1. But 3. Showed up in my front yard. 

I almost peed my pants!!


So I tossed a few tomatoes out the front door to them


He is the smallest of the youngsters in the neighborhood and oohhh soooooo cute!!


It seems I rang the dinner bell, here comes number three.


This is the actual distance between my front door and the deer.






What? The tomatoes are gone? 


Are you sure?


OK see ya!


I am going to talk to some friends of mine that own a produce store to see if I can get their rotten apples so next time my deer will get some dessert too!

OK, I no more fawning (giggle) over the deer. Let's move on....

This week on the blog we had some....

  3. These are absolutely beautiful photos, and the food looks great, too! The deer make me miss living in Minnesota, where I grew up and lived until about halfway through high school. I remember the pretty deer that used to show up in my grandparents' backyard out in the country. Thanks for bringing me back there in my mind. :)

  8. Three deer visiting you, that's great. I feel that Christmas is fast approaching. Usually meet these guys in our parks in Canada, not so close as you. Thanks for the Slow Cooker Campfire Stew recipe, I love stews.

    1. I know most people around here probably think it is no big deal, but just love animals. Actually a lot of people consider them a nuisance.

  10. I am on the east coast, in the country and deer are as common as yard dogs. LOL
    But I get it, I get excited to see them. So does my dog!
    I love the Thai ribs, yummy to my tummy

    1. Thanks Dawn :) my dog is blind so she knows something is out there but is too nervous to really check it out. We had a bear in the neighborhood a week or so ago and I think it really freaked her out!
