Hi guys!! Happy October to ya. Hope you all had a good weekend :] I most definitely did!! Friday night Brian, some friends, and I saw Ty Segall and Thee Oh Sees in Logan Square. The show was realllly good, minus the extremely loud parts (I am an old woman - I need my ear plugs - I am already deaf as it is). The amps were definitely at max volume and a few times I thought my ears might burst - eeep! Other than that though, good times. We went to the early show, so later that night Brian, Andy, and I walked around Wicker Park and had some yummy pizza. Saturday was spent thrifting but I didn't come up with too many goodies unfortunately. Later that night Brian and I stayed in and got caught up on Modern Family - so good! We missed it earlier in the week because we saw End of Watch - oh em gee. That movie gave me nightmares for sure. It scares me so bad that there are so many crazy people out there who want to harm others, especially those protecting us. To all the men and women protecting our communities and nation - thank you!! Anywhoo....

Last weekend Brian and I went to Jonamac's in Malta, IL to pick some apples. It was a ton of fun. I am just now posting these photos though...whoops! Here is a little glimpse at our adventure :]

As soon as you drive 20 minutes outside of my home town you are surrounded by endless cornfields, they look prettiest this time of year. Brian and I were not alone on our adventure. Meet band-it! He is Brian's latest bud. Brian found him busted at work and decided to fix him with a band-aid - hence the name, Band-it. He is pretty darn sweet if you ask me.

Before heading to the Orchard we made a small pit stop in downtown Dekalb to check out a few thrift stores. I should have taken photos of the shops, whoopsie. The downtown area was super cute though. Check out the Egyptian theatre!! It is a combination of two of my favorite things :]

Walking to the orchard you are greeted by the cutest darn animals at the petting zoo. Baby goats, donkeys, and lambs!! My heart melts.

Sorry for spamming my blog with photos. It was just such a pretty day. I am fidgeting in all of these photos. I was too nervous to sit still and take photos while others were around.

That's right ladies and gents!! They had an apple launcher and cannon - it is exactly what it sounds like too. You could shoot apples at targets!!

After apple picking we headed on over to their huuuuge corn maze. I warned Brian that we should use the map, but he didn't feel like it was necessary. Needless to say we got lost, haha. At one point we were so desperate we tried gps'ing our way out. Of course we were in the middle of nowhere though so there was no service. We did manage to find our way to a tower and were able to use the map from there *phew. It was a ton of fun. Next month their corn maze is going to be haunted - you are chased by people with chainsaws. Sounds pretty darn terrifying to me.

Anywho. Hope you all are having a good Monday :]
