WOYWW {177}

Happy Wednesday! Its halfway through our week, which means its time for another WOYWW!

My desk is a disaster. I was vaccumming and picked a few things up and threw them on my desk (like the Jared's bag full of ribbons and the box of ribbons too!)


I also got a new mug from Shutterfly and opened it up at my desk, then left all of the packaging on my desk...I'm not sure why!


Last week, I had the beginnings of this layout on my desk. If you are interested, the finished layout is here.

So, my plan was to have my pumpkin picking layout started and to share the story with you today. Obviously, I didn't start the layout yet (I went to dinner with a girlfriend who just got engaged instead!)

But, I will still tell the story!

AJ and I love to go pumpkin picking. We've gone in both New Jersey and New York. We always go to big farms and orchards where there are lots and lots of pumpkins, and apples and corn and everything else.

So this year, we thought we lucked out living in Illinois. There are tons of farms out here! We researched on line and found a place that had all kinds of things - a pumpkin patch, a corn maze, even a haunted barn!

But, it was almost 2 hours away!

We decided to have an adventure and drive out there. After getting lots and taking over two hours to get there, we pulled up...and we couldn't help but laugh!


That was it! That was the entire size of the farm. It took us less than 15 minutes to walk around and look at the pumpkins. Then we got back in the car for our long trip home! Although not before we took a cute pumpkin patch picture!


That's it for me! I'm going to head over to Julia's to check out some other workdesks. If you want to join me, just click on the fabulous button below!

Apparently Illinois doesn't take their pumpkin patches seriously! Still nice to go on an adventure!

Christina said...

Ha ha! We had that happen to us when hunting for a Christmas tree farm one year-the kids were soooo disappointed!
At least you got to spend some quality alone time with AJ! :)

Oh man, I bet you guys cracked up. But in that situation that's almost what you have to do, right? ha! Two questions. 1) Is that an Amy Tangerine book on your desk? 2) What does that stamp say that's on your desk? :)

Tracy said...

I love your desk, its so full of creative energy :)
Looks like they had a ton of pumpkins to choose from ;)

Monica said...

Too bad!!! But you had a wonderful "togetherness" day!

sandee said...

I had to laugh when I saw the Jared bag on your desk, it's so you! lol True pumpkin patches are hard to find, the ones with corn mazes and bon fires are the ones I always think of! But the picture of you 2 is worth it! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

Well that story IS the perfect scrapbook page really isn't it! We don't have pumpkin farms or patches here, so even that plot of caged pumpkins looks quite exciting!!
