This pregnancy has just been flying by. E keeps me busy and I know our new little one will be here before we know it! So here we are at 24 weeks and E at 22 months.
There is basically nothing better than spending an October Sunday afternoon at the pumpkin patch. Luckily the rain held off as we took Eleanor out to find the perfect pumpkin. Of course she wanted the biggest one she could find! She was more than ready to take home every pumpkin she saw (me too for that matter), but we settled for just three.
It was sooooo cold yesterday so after we wandered around the farm and got our pumpkins we went and had dinner at a local brewery to get warm and cozy. Perfect. We stopped for coffee on the way home and then snuggled up the rest of the evening gazing at our pretty pumpkins and watching the Office.
We decided to go to Roloff Farms to get our pumpkins since it isn’t too far from where we live now, and because I have followed Audrey Roloff’s blogs (beating50 and aujpoj) for a while and thought it would be fun to support their family and see the farm in person. I did get to meet Audrey briefly and she was so so lovely! I honestly love the example she and her husband are for Christ, specifically when it comes to Christian marriage and relationships. So. good.
Now, all I need to do is hang some more twinkle lights and make some pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. Fall, you are so so so welcome in the Noble house.
Tis the time of year for plaid and pumpkin and all that yummy coziness. I was going through my lightroom archives and found this sewing project I did with my mamma around this time last year.
I remember being inspired to make this when I was at my favorite cafe in Mcminnville and I saw a girl wearing a gorgeous loose, plaid peplum tunic (I’m pretty sure it was from Anthropologie). I immediately thought, I can make something like this. And by me, I mean my mom. Because, basically, my mom makes all of my sewing dreams become realities. I couldn’t have done it without her…which is why this post is not a tutorial…because, I can’t even tell you exactly how we did this. I can tell you a few things to point you in the right direction if you’re up for attempting a project like this one.
-Thrift an oversized dress (probably cheaper than buying fabric mine was only $7.99!) The more 90’s teacher vibes the better!
If you’re not into projects like this, then keep scrolling for adorable pics of an eight month old E. SO. Fresh.
I love the final result and when I get compliments on this shirt…I love telling people it’s a thrift store find with a makeover. Happy fall!
Matt and I loved spending last Saturday with Ethan and Amanda. After a sweltering week in the sun, the spring rain that came on their wedding day was refreshing. Here’s the thing about weddings, they truly reflect the heart of the bride and groom. Down to the last detail. Amanda and Ethan’s day reflected their unadulterated joy and trust in God and in each other.Their family and friends served them by ensuring that each detail and request was brought to fruition and it was a beautiful thing to behold. We were honored to be a part of their celebration. We hope you’ve been having an amazing time at Disney!
Here are some of the amazing people who made their day so awesome:

I know, everything is on the brink of winter and everyone is posting their Christmasy goodness. But I took a million photos this fall that I love and am finally getting around to editing. And I just want to post my favorites okay? Okay. These are from about a month ago. We picked apples for .38 cents a pound and had ourselves a ripping time. I dare you not to love an Oregon apple orchard in the fall.
