Photo Dump Thursday (September 2017)...

I've been wracking my brain all night trying to think of something to post tomorrow (Thursday) to make sure I meet my goal of 8 posts for this month. I already know what Friday's post will be, I just could not think of something to post today, BUT then I finally had a light bulb moment and remembered the piece of paper I have tucked in my desk with a bunch of post ideas for when I'm in a rut (so all the time...) and one of the first things I read was a Last Ten Photo Dump. I haven't done well lately with including many pictures with my posts so I was sold on the idea as soon as I read it. So here you go, the last ten* photos taken on my phone. 

ONE
This was just taken about twenty minutes ago. Within three seconds of putting her on the bed she was curled up on the blanket and fast asleep. Be still my heart
TWO
The selfie I posted a little bit ago on Instagram to document finally get my hair cut. Which I almost didn't post because I get so much anxiety posting selfies. The things that give me anxiety are the silliest things everrrrrr.
THREE
I'm trying out a new work schedule that will keep me from working as much overtime as I have been lately and yesterday morning I didn't have to be in my office until 8:45 instead of my usual 7:15 (I'm hoping to do this one day a week) so I took these two for a walk before I had to leave for work. To be honest, I tried to slip out of the house with just Krickit but I swear Kirby can sense when I'm even thinking about taking Krickit for a walk so I ended up with both of them. And in the picture Krickit had somehow managed to extract herself from her harness so right after this was taken I had to fix it or it would have slipped right off her back. 
FOUR
A new Winners/HomeSense opened in Harbour Landing, the area of the Queen City that I'm actually comfortable driving in, and I've been wanting to hit it up for forever and finally got the chance on Tuesday when I had to head there for an orthodontist appointment. I've been on the hunt for a Rae Dunn spoon rest and I finally found one and was SO excited. I contemplated getting both of them but in the end just ended up with the 'Rest' one. I am Rae Dunn obsessed right now (late to the party, I know).
FIVE
I had a New York Fries poutine for lunch at the Food Court in the mall before my appointment while in the Queen City. It's not very often that I get this so I treated myself to the delicious-ness.
SIX 
Krickit came outside with me while I was taking some photos for the blog last weekend and when I went to take a picture of her she tilted her head as if to say 'Another picture Mom (insert eye roll)'. Isn't she the cutest?! (And don't worry, her badger claws got clipped on Monday)
SEVEN
I had to stop and take a picture of the fog over the valley behind my parents house before I left for work the other morning. It looked too pretty not to photograph! This isn't the best picture that I got but when I went to upload them this is the one I accidentally chose and it's late and I want to get to bed soon so I'm just leaving this one. 
EIGHT 
I took this last weekend to use with my Fall Bucket List post. I think we can all agree that Fall really is the prettiest season to photograph. I actually took a bunch of photos on my DSLR but ended up using the sub-par ones I took with my iPhone because I knew that if I dumped my memory card onto my laptop I'd be stuck editing photos for hours and just didn't feel up to it.
  NINE
  
One of my September Goals was to try 5 new recipes this month and last Saturday night I tried the Chicken Noodle Casserole from here. I did add a little bit of shredded cheese to the top for the last 5 minutes that it was baking but otherwise I stuck with the original recipe. Definitely one I will make again!
 TEN
MN was kind enough to play chaffeur to my family while we were in the Twin Cities for the Jays vs Twins games. My Mama wanted to check out the outlets in Eagan so on the Saturday morning we headed there and I picked up this oversized wallet to match my purse. The picture was taken right before I threw out the bag, just in case I decided to use it on the blog at some point ie: a What I'm Loving Lately kind of post. Or, in this case, a photo dump!  

*Okay, not technically the last 10 taken but the last ten that weren't all of the same thing. I literally have 6 photos of Krickit sleeping that all look the same and I didn't want to bore y'all with that so I went through and took the last 10 that weren't duplicates. 

I think I need to make this kind of post a weekly or monthly thing from now on! It's funny to see how completely random all the photos are and I like that they give a little glimpse into things in my life that might not get posted here. What do y'all think?!
