We've been busier than a one legged man at an ass kickin' contest.
Busy booking our flights home...
On November 5th, we fly from Manchester England to Dublin Ireland where we'll enjoy a 5 hour pit stop. From Ireland we head to Boston where my parents will be greeting us. It all feels so real now that we've got a final date and I find myself twitching at the thought of organizing and cramming our lives into 7 suitcases (and 1 guitar case). Nevertheless I'm beyond excited and trying my best to cope with the occasional tears that well up. It genuinely is the most confusing feeling to say goodbye to one home full of friends and family and hello to another.

We've also been busy crapping our pants and scratching our heads while watching David Blaine specials. Specials which have inspired us me to go full on geektastic and learn to perform some (really bad) magic of my own...
We've been busy pissing our britches laughing at the HILARIOUS southern sayings they spew out left right and center on Cajun Pawn Stars...
Many of which I've adopted into my own vocabulary - as you'll have noticed by the opening sentence of this post. Sayings that I now fully intend to bust out on a daily basis too. There's a few which weren't on that clip that made me cry from laughing so hard (eg: I'm nuttier than a potra potty at a peanut festival) so if you're looking for a good laugh and haven't yet watched that show you're seriously missing out. 

We've been busy making homemade dulce de leche (thanks to this awesome and super easy boil-a-can-of-carnation-sweetened-condensed- milk-for-3-hours trick I found on Pinterest). It turned out just as delicious as I'd hoped it would and today I dipped slices of apple in it for a yummy Fall snack.
We've been busy picking out the plumpest roundest pumpkins we could find...
Lately, we've been busy enjoying our last days in the UK. Moving slowly, spending as much time with friends and family as possible and soaking in the damp salty English air that we we'll miss so much this time next month. 

What have you been up to lately?

Happy Monday!
Lots of love, love, love,
