When we celebrated his birthday with his family, we even wore the same sweater. Everyone thought it was pretty cute. I guess facebook did too, because the picture got thirty-nine likes and six comments. I swear it wasn't on purpose. We are that in sync. There's been so many times that we wear the same color without seeing what the other person is wearing first.
Another thing that I have to say... I am loving this colder weather at night. Plus, I am loving wearing boots and sweaters and jackets. Fall is definitely my favorite time of the year, and the best when it comes to fashion!
We also had something unexpected happen, but I'll save that for tomorrow. It deserves its own post!
I haven't organized all of my clothes yet, because it is literally impossible. I have thousands of items of clothing, so it won't ever be organized until I turn a spare bedroom into a huge closet. That's neither here nor there. I just wanted to wear a sweater, because it was getting colder at night. I found this one laying around and figured that I would wear it, because I wanted to stay warm. After I was dressed, I noticed that my husband was dressed... with a very similar argyle sweater. We just decided to go with it.
We decided to do a very low-key birthday, since he just got back deployment this past June and we took two vacations this summer (An Anniversary Trip to Mexico and A Mile High Vacation). I still decided to buy him some clothes (two shirts and one sweater), candy, a Star Wars pen, a can of honey roasted cashews, a pair of tennis shoes, and a pair of slippers. That may seem like a lot for a low-key birthday, but it was an extremely great deal!
A funny story regarding gifts and gift-giving...
Wednesday night, I was looking online at something to buy; just something small. I knew it wouldn't have been extravagant as the previous years, but I still wanted to get something small. For the past couple of weeks, my husband has mentioned slippers, because of the hardwood floors. I have a pair of slipper boots that I wear all the time from Old Navy and absolutely love them.
I made the mistake by talking and thinking out loud. I said, "I don't know if you would wear them or not." He said, "What?" I tried to play it off as NOT something you wear. I finally said that you mentioned wanting them, and he guessed slippers! With us, there are no surprises! We always tell each other our secrets or what gifts we bought or we end up guessing.
After I got back from Old Navy and Target, I kept saying that I was super excited about what I bought. He said, "Good call on the slippers." I made the mistake of saying, "Old Navy didn't have them in yet." That's when he said, "Then what did you get at Old Navy?" Busted again.
The sweater I bought him must have been put in the wrong place. It must have been a ladies' sweater. I bought it about two sizes too big, because it was a great deal and was in the men's section. It looked super huge held up to me, so I bought it, because it was in the men's section (and figured it was based on the size). It didn't even begin to fit him, because it a) must have not been for men, b) was a woman's sweater, or c) a sweater for boys. The same thing happened at Goodwill! I guess I'll stop holding it up to me as a judge. Whoops.
A yearly tradition that we have been doing since 2009 (with the exception of 2012) is go to the corn maze. It's super fun! We would've went last year, but my husband was deployed. Other than that, we never ever miss a year!
This is the current corn maze design that is in tribute to RJ Corman, who passed away this August. RJ Corman was an entrepreneur who built a backhoe business into a multimillion-dollar railroad and construction company. He was the founder and owner of RJ Corman Railroad Group, a Kentucky-based railroad holding company. (via)
Here are the designs from the previous years...one: 2010. This is for the World Equestrian games that my city hosted.
two: 2011. This was for our basketball coach, John Calipari.
three: 2012. This was for our 8th National Championship win.
The corn maze that we go to is family owned and is the original Giant Corn Maze to Central Kentucky. It is on over 10 acres of land. There's two different entrances to the corn maze; one shorter route and another one that is longer. Besides the corn maze, they have a variety of activities: pumpkin patch, hay rides, Billy Goat SkyWalk, delicious treats, and so much more!!
By going to this corn maze, it makes my fall complete. It wouldn't be the same without it!
