I am so excited for the holidays!
Especially sense Thanksgiving is tomorrow yay! & I can officially start counting down the days for Christmas and AZ while I'm stuffing myself with stuffing and turkey yay! Anyways I guess the real point in this post is I wanted to express my gratitude sense that is the theme for this month and blogger!

I am grateful for all the many many changes in my life that have happened to me this year.
It has not been easy, its been one a very hard row to hoe but I've come through it and learned allot about myself and in particular Joel and I learned allot about what we are capable of as a couple.

I am grateful for my daughter
Its been a relief that she has been healthy and strong despite all the trials mom went through to have her brought into this life.

I am thankful for families.
even though my family is a thousand miles away I've never felt closer.
I'm thankful for the family that I've had right here in Washington.
I'm thankful for the generosity, kindness and friendship shown to Joel & I. & also thanks for sticking with me personally even when I was a grouch. (aka pregnant autumn in all her fierceness. )

I am grateful for my blog.
Silly as it sounds, when I moved up to Washington I did not have many people to hang out with, besides my wonderful brothers and sisters in law (which was great and we have had good times) But I was really lonely for AZ and my friends. My blog was wonderful for me because (in a kind of pathetic way) gave me something to look forward to while I was on bed rest and so forth & I did not feel so homesick either.

I am grateful for My husbands job.
We moved across country for something I was not so sure was going to be what we wanted & you to know to be honest I was never all the happy about it until when I got here and I started to slowly see the lords plan. We could not have gone through all that we went through with my pregnancy without Joel's job and insurance. & as much as I was frustrated with moving, it turned out to be a wonderful blessing for our family, one that I will look back on and say without a doubt that God was watching over us.

I'm thankful for a home.
I am grateful for our lovely duplex its had allot of work done to make it what it is today & I am so glad that we did what we did to fix it. I am thankful for all the help I had also. Could not have done it without you. Mann Its so nice to be in our own place!

I am thankful for neighbor's.
Yes, I can hear every move you make through your house but I love living next door to you because you are such wonderful, kind people. We honestly feel so lucky to have a great family to be neighbors with! :)

I am thankful to the lord for all his bounteous blessings he has seen fit to bless me with. I am thankful for the trials & the chastening because through them our relationship has grown stronger. I am thankful for the book of Mormon. I never had a truer desire to read them. I took the challenge to read it in a year and guess what? I finished it by September! I am so happy that I decided to do that, I have learned so much and grown so much closer to my Heavenly Father. :)

I realized that I had not done any posts on getting to know me so I thought I would write I few random facts about myself lame or not.

Hi my Name is Autumn Renee Fauver I'm 22 and I've been married for about a year and 6 months. I now have a baby her name is Adelynn Janae Fauver and she is month and a half (its so crazy to say that, the time has really flown!) UMMmm I love to decorate, I love a good movie night curled up on the couch, I love to shop, I love doing crafty sorts of things, I love to draw (although I don't do it enough.) My favorite things that have inspired me in the past to draw (and other art I've done) is horses. That's because I've been in love with horses, and the whole western/ country living life style that goes with horses ever sense I was knee high to a grass hopper. lol Ok umm...
One of my new found loves is photography. I would love to have the chance to take photos for others and I know someday I will. I love animals. Not in a creepy like, I- want- twenty- cats- sort of way, I want to be a vet tech. I want to help animals, whether that is volunteering someplace or doing it day in day out in a vet hospital.
lets see...I am a very opinionated person (it gets me in trouble lol) although some might not think so because I'm very shy at times. I love to do things for others, putting a smile on someones face is the best feeling ever. I love to spoil my nieces and nephews if I get the chance and I love my brothers and sisters more than anybody. Umm... my husband is my best friend has been sense the day that I met him. & I think nobody honestly could be more perfect for me.♥
Hmmm what else? I love food but 'm a picky eater & I really don't enjoy cooking much. I love to go on walks but I hate running because I have bad arches. I love the church I belong to and don't know where I would be without it. Hmmm I dream of visiting the Caribbean islands someday. I'd like to lose twenty pounds by next spring. I think christian bale is smokin and hero's and supernatural are my favorite TV shows ever. Do we have anything in common?

I listen to too much TV

Lately I've noticed I've been using/ listening to the TV too much.
You want to know why I believe this? This morning I realized I would turn it on just to hear it even if I don't watch it. My mind is completely else where &&& I've started to talk back to the TV when I do, lol especially when whoopie says something ridiculous on The View.
Sorry y'all I can't stand her, she's too liberal for me kthanks.
I even got excited to watch paid programs yesterday! haha for products I could never afford and is probably a waste too (except for you cricit machine I will continue to drool over you.) Its even gotten so bad that I am giving in to boredom & watching soap operas such as, "As the world turns" and "All my children"
Feels like I need to go to rehab after watching those shows.
Ohh snap. What has my life become lately?
I need to find something else to do when I am watching/feeding Adelynn cause... Dang.

Thought my outfit was cute even for post pregnancy

I realized the other day that sometimes seeing how successful other women are at cooking, keeping up with their home, decorating, dressing fashionable etc. Sometimes I get distraught because I feel like I am doing well at something and then I see how much better somebody else does whatever it is, or manages to get more done in the week than me. It can be frustrating.
But then again, I realized as I was looking at my daughter, that I may not be very smart, not very creative, funny, great at cooking or cleaning, organizing or fashionable but I am who I am and I am grateful for my life and it does not matter what somebody else does.
I applaud others for being so excellent but I am just going to do what makes me feel good and keeps me happy. I am going to be my best happy self for Adelynn and that is good enough.
ps. The pictures are just something I felt like posting. I love those pictures.

Things I've been drooling over this winter

  1. This Juicy necklace

I can see this going with so many outfits!

I am more of a shopper that likes to find things that can be used with allot of things,

I don't like buying stuff that can only be used once or with one outfit.2. YUM. This stuff smells so good and lasts!
3. I have the matching necklace and have been wanting the earrings ever sense

4. Down east basics skirts and long sleeve shirts are adorable and keep you modest!

5. Ok so I love these UGGS.

I've never been a huge fan of uggs, I always thought they were ugly on me because I'm short, but I can't help but want these darling boots with buttons!

6. Pea coats!

They make every outfit look like a million bucks! And aren't the buttons so cute!?

7. These boots! OMG so cute and would look sick with skirts.

8. Mary Jane pumps ♥

These christian louboutin's are perfect.

They are only like 800 bucks,
