24 pounds of apples picked in 90 degree weather. My Vermonter husband has definitely adapted to Missouri well.

If you happen to be in Central Missouri at the end of September, make it a point to check out the Celebration of Nations in Rolla. This has been one of my favorite local festivals, even more so than St. Pat’s, which is what Rolla is famous for.

All of the international students parade with their home flags from campus to downtown. Then they have booths with awesome food dishes that raise money for their student associations, and of course an international idol competition. It is truly the only “family friendly” parade we have, as there isn’t a beer tent (although it happens to fall on The Public House’s Oktoberfest, which is also worth checking out.) The food I have pictured above is from the Ethiopia booth- I wanted to go to the Indian student’s association as we have friends there, but decided to branch out and try something a little different. 

I applaud the University for this festival, as there is a growing tension between some of the town residents and the international student population.

I see apple butter in my future.

It is my one year anniversary of my public marriage tomorrow. This is exactly how I feel.

I just want to give a shout out to the Springfield, MO Central High Kilties. They are an all girl drum and bugle corps and they are beyond badass. You go, ladies. Rocking the kilts since 1926 because you are the shit.

My friend has a moth watch on his Facebook, where he posts pictures of all the moths he finds.. (Old british men have strange hobbies some time.) I sent him this and he got angry because he said it was a butterfly. Please say I’m right and that it is a moth?

I like Halloween and Tumblr, too.

I just said to myself, out loud, “Wait, Mark Ruffalo has a Tumblr account?”

You have always been my favorite.
