Member how I said that I was going to clean the house this weekend?
Totally didn't happen. Instead I was wifenapped by the hubby and forced to visit Harvest Festivals, eat amazing food, get lost in corn mazes, and even took the bike all the way down to Canyon City, knocking three items off the 27 In 27 List! I guess he got all those hints that I've been dropping ;)
Friday, albeit cold, was a beautiful start to the weekend, and then I got to come home to the first fire of the year, wine, and watching the movie Crash. I probably cried half of the movie... Mostly because of all the times that Lauren made me watch it before she had cancer, but you can't help but cry a mixture of happy and sad tears from the heart wrenching scenarios.

Saturday, we headed up to Rock Ledge Ranch where Will participated in his first Silent Auction, explored Garden Of The Gods, and then ate at the famous Sunbird for dinner and relaxation.Sorry about the random picture of my hair, but I'm really proud that I rocked a messy braid. I have never liked my hair 'up', so this is huge for me. Just don't tell anyone that I only did it because the curls were not working with me that day.
As if Saturday was not enough, Sunday was going to be another day of Fall celebration visiting Diana's Pumpkin Patch in Canyon City! We hopped on the bike and made the hourish trip down to enjoy Hot Apple Cider and one of the best Corn Mazes I've ever done.
After that, we took a walk along the Arkansas River, so we can now say we have been there, and we worked up enough of an appetite to visit the Gooseberry Patch. It was like being transported back in time, and yet the place is current enough to get an 85% on Urban Spoon. We assumed it was a little diner, but it ended up having a down home buffet that you wouldn't believe. I almost felt like I was back home in the South.
Hi, My Name Is Janna, And I Am Addicted To Buffets.
Bet you didn't know that about me. It's not that I want to gorge myself
even if that sometimes happens, it's that I love getting to eat a little bit of everything. I like variety, and I'm not ashamed to admit my desire to stop at every buffet I see. Don't judge.
As I sit here going through the memories of this weekend, I am so incredibly thankful for such a wonderful husband. I can't believe he planned all of this, and that he goes above and beyond to make me feel special. How did I get so lucky?
