If you have been following my blog awhile, you know I fell in love with orange tones earlier this year, so today's Fall Color Challenge choice of pumpkin had me very excited! Again, I don't know that what I picked is super "pumpkin" like, this is a richer toned orange hue, but hopefully it's close enough! I think it definitely screams "FALL"!
Yesterday was one of those trying kind of days. I won't go into detail, but let's just say it's emotionally draining to have a disagreement with someone you love. So I was a bump on the couch when Mr. Monkey got home last night, already in my PJ's in fact. He was aware of my bad day and comes in the door, looks at me and says "you're not wearing enough clothes." I'm like "for what?" He said "well we can't go get you that burger you've been craving if you're wearing that." So I put something more than pajamas on and he took me down to our favorite dive bar/grill, ordered us a half pitcher of beer while we waited for our burgers to cook and then we brought them home with us where we drank another beer and watched some TV. It was just what I needed yesterday night. I love that he just knows the right thing to do, no questions asked. Yes I'm sappy and yes I'm bragging, but I'm just saying, the Pants Monkey rules.

Today I'm embracing the sunny day outside and moving on. It's a new day and a fresh start! I'm focusing on the positive and the good things. It's a fitting way to be with Thanksgiving just over a week away (holy cow!). As Willy Wonka says "good, then, on we go!"
