Driving Tests, Fall and Photo Challenge

Happy First Day of Fall Everyone!!!!!! Oh how I love this season. Summer is over, the leaves change color, the weather gets cool and unpredictable and you can eat pumpkin everything!!!! Yep, I love this season!
Yesterday I took my drivers license test (for the second time) and I PASSED!!!!! I have my drivers license now!!!! Actually I have a paper that says I have my drivers license; my actual license is coming in the mail. I am soooo excited!!!! The first time I went to take my license test we discovered that the back brake light, that had just been fixed and was working, had decided to stop working. So we couldn't do the test and had to reschedule. The second time I was super nervous. I felt exactly like I had while I was waiting in line for Full Throttle at Magic Mountain which means I had a pit in my stomach, my heart was racing and I was almost shaking visibly :/ Needless to say, I hit a curb and failed the test. So yesterday was my third attempt in a week and whoever said the third time is a charm was right in this case. Also a lot of practice with dad helped too ;);) I can cross something off my bucket list and I am extremely happy about that :):) And dad just came home from town and he brought me a pint of double chocolate gelato so I am extra happy!! ;):)
I have been slowly working away at my September Photo Challenge. Here are a few of my pictures. I need to do one big catch up post with all of the pictures.
bonus points to anyone who can figure out what book this is ;)
 Something Stressful
According to my mom, laundry is not stressful and I don't do the laundry here so I wouldn't know differently but I can imagine that if we were gone for a week that the ensuing laundry situation would be stressful :)

Please excuse the watermark; I am sampling a new photo software.
Something Orange
And while we are on that topic.....


Do you like fall? What is your favorite thing about this season? Did you pass your drivers test on the first try? I would love to hear from you :):)


  1. I love fall! One of my favorite parts is that you can wear scarves all the time, oh and boots :) I'm curious is the gelato "Talenti" brand because that's the best! They have a sea salt caramel one that's amazing. Congrats again on your license. I'm so happy for you!

  2. I love getting to wear scarves and sweaters and my denim jacket :):)
    Yes, the gelato was "Talenti" and it is extremely yummy. I have actually never had real gelato before now. The Gindorf girls, Han and I tried making some for our parents but it never set all the way :/
    Thanks again!! I hope your permit papers come soon :):)

  3. So I read like 2 words on the first picture and immediately knew it was Pride and Prejudice. I love that book! :)

    1. Congratulations!!!! I have never read the book but I have seen the BBC movie twice :)

  4. Congratulations on your drivers license!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so happy for you, of course I do have my reasons for being happy...for now you can drive down and visit me:):):)
    I like fall for the cooler weather and the excitement in the air, however i'm not a big fan of pumpkin, though I do love the apples and pies and whipped cream that comes with fall baking:)
    I'm taking my permit test Tuesday; hopefully I pass.
    Lizzie, Jane, and Mrs. Bennet can only be one book...Pride and Prejudice.
    My favorite picture is the one of Tiger, he's so cute! I do have a weakness for stuffed animals though.

    1. Thank you, Lacy!!! Of course I will come and visit you ;):) The problem is that Santa Clarita drivers will probably drive all over me ;)
      I am not a big fan of pumpkin pie but I like pumpkin breads and muffins. I love apple anything and I could eat whipped cream out of a bowl especially if it is homemade whipped cream :P
      Good Luck on your test!! I am sure you will pass :) The free sample tests online really helped me.
      Hahah you are right!!
      Tigger is my favorite! I have had that one since I was 9 months old. Dad and mom gave it to me for my first Christmas. Oh don't get me started on my stuffed animals!!! ;)

  5. Once again, congratulations!!!!! You passed twice in my book. ;) Definitely Pride & Prejudice; I love that book!! Jane Austen's wit is great.
    Tigger was always my favorite too. x-)

    1. Thank you!!! It is very sweet of you to say that :);)
      I guess I had best read this book after all of you good recommendations!! :)
      He is awesome isn't he?!!
