Please? Thank you? No more.

Sometimes I wonder if manners have gone out the window.
Now just hear me out.
I made sound like an old lady on the rampage but I'm serious!
For example, today I stopped at Old Navy yesterday
(I couldn't resist) they had their leggings for $10 plus 30% off yesterday
so I got some for only $7 a pair!
Walking in I held the door open for a lady I would guess to be in her 30's
Did she say thank you?
Did she even acknowledge I did with a nod or a smile?
I just think saying thank you after someone holds a door open for you
goes a long way.
Another one that I tend to deal with are inmates.
If I give them something,
toilet paper, commisary, book cart, etc.
they don't say thank you, they just EXCPECT it to be given to
them. Maybe that's why they are in jail partially.
They just think that everything should be given to them.
Now I'm not saying I'm perfect. Maybe it was the way I was
raised, but I almost always say PLEASE or THANK YOU
after someone does something for me.
My parents, always reminded me to thank others
after they gave me something.

This Weekend I...

Friday night consisted of dinner with my husbands co worker and his wife.
We went to Buffalo Wild Wings.
The Fried Pickles with the southwest ranch were calling my name.
It was a blast.
When we finally left the restaurant my face and mouth hurt from laughing so hard and smiling.
I can't wait till we go out to dinner with this couple again!
Saturday was a family pumpkin day!
I will let the pictures do the talking!

Sunday was our normal lazy day
Caught up on our shows
Read the Sunday paper
Took a nice 2 hour nap
Watched the Packers beat the Vikings!!!

Hopefully you all had a good weekend as well!!

Fall Time

I stumbled across another blog who posted some great fall questions
1.) Favorite Fall Lip Balm
I don't have a favorite fall lip balm.
I use these 2 kinds all the time.
Baby Lips

Almay Lip Balm
2.) Favorite Fall Nail Polish
OPI came out with this San Francisco collection.
I have wore the in the cable car pool lane
It's gorgeous and I like the dark plum color
3.) Favorite Fall Starbucks drink
Pumpkin Spice Latte
4.) Favorite Fall Candle
Autumn Wreath Candle, this smells so good.
I burn it every night I'm home!!
5.) Fall clothing or accessory
Scarves and boots for sure!
6.) Haunted House, Haunted Hayride, or Haunted Corn Maze
The one that scares me the most!
I went 2 years ago on a Haunted Hayride, these guys were jumping on the tractor with chainsaws and wearing creepy masks. Scared the crap out of me! I think Brent left with nail marks in his hands!
7.) Favorite Halloween Movie
8.) Favorite Candy to Eat on Halloween
9.) What are you dressing up as for Halloween
I am not going to any Halloween parties this year (ok I haven't been invited to one in like 4 years) but if I did, I would go as Walter White :)
10.) What is your favorite thing about fall?
Football Games.
Smell of Fall.
Fellow Bloggers & Friends, please fill this out! I would like to see your answers!
