Free Fallin...

So... just when I was getting slightly bummed about fall arriving (fall = winter = MISERY), Columbus went and discovered America and I discovered a 3-day weekend. 
Well- let me rephrase that slightly. 
Columbus went and discovered America and brought with him summer temperatures over said 3-day weekend.  
Therefore, for the past 3 days I have loved Columbus.
And I have absolutely loved fall.

I am not sure I have ever loved a 3-day weekend so much.
Though I probably think that very thought every time one rolls around. 
How different a Sunday feels when it's really like Saturday. 
How that one more day seems to make everything calm an relaxing.
One more whole day just to explore.

I did so many great things with my 72 hours! First of all, I saw The Town and it was a-ma-zing.  
Like almost-redeems-Ben-Affleck-for-ever-making-Gigi amazing.
Ok, maybe that's stretching it.
But nonetheless, LOVED.
I could have watched it for 10 straight hours without even blinking.
If you have seen this movie, please tell me if you agree. 

I went to my friend Katie's fantastic engagement party with my family, and my other friend Katie's delicious BBQ. I went shopping, decorated for Halloween (Hello! Start of the Holiday Season!!!) and went to the grocery store. 
I know- let that soak in. I.ran.an.errand. 
But more on the ridiculousness of errands later.

I also read, relaxed, and watched Chris play football at a park right next to the airport. I was so happy to do this because I had been eyeing this spot for a while. Planes take off not 100 yards away, and they flew overhead so closely that it seemed like I could reach out and touch them. It was really awesome.

And of course, it wouldn't be fall without a child-like adventure (or 10) to the pumpkin patch. 
Yesterday we went to an orchard in Maryland to pick apples and a good lookin' pumpkin. I picked out a 16 pounder and named it "Chubbs". 
And yes, I was probably happier to be there than most of the 4 year olds.

And to think that I asked "Are you sure this one's big enough?"

It was a wonderful, absolutely beautiful weekend. 
Now if Columbus could just discover something every Monday...
