Weekend Recap


The first weekend of fall was a great one.  The air was crisp, I baked, I bought mums and had some candy corn.  It pretty much ruled.  Some highlights include ::

  • Seeing Raegan dressed up for the Head Accessory Party.  Who knew a painted on cat face could look so creepy? Who knew she could look so amazing with a drawn-on trucker 'stache?  Good times.
  • The return of the mister! 
  • Margharita pizza!
  • Nulu Fest - listening to The Broken Spurs play while hanging out with a friend we haven't seen in ages (we're obviously a proud supporter of Billy)
  • Weekend projects tackled.  Solar lights in front of the house? Check.  Autumn flowers on the porch? Check.  Paint for the hallway/entryway bought? Check.  Paint for the kitchen bought? Check.  Sanding + painting kitchen chairs? Check.  Check, check, check.
  • R-E-L-A-X-I-N-G.  Double check.

How were your weekends? As good as always, I hope.  Here's to an enjoyable autumn week ahead!

I love the beginning of autumn when the changes in the weather are noticeable but still somehow subtle: sunny days without the heat of a blazing sun, or just the air having a cooler edge to it. Not such a fan of when autumn descends into the miserable, cold depths of winter though!

Your weekend sounds great (margharita pizza is the shiz!), very productive.

I bought some mums a few weeks ago, but somehow managed to kill them. :( I'm trying to resist the urge to buy more; they're just the perfect fall flower!

An excellent sounding weekend indeed! I got the last of my current painting project done over the weekend, which I am thrilled about. I love getting stuff checked off my list. :)

What a perfect fall weekend-I just wish I could capture a bit of your countryside in SF!

I've been meaning to pick up some mums for our door step, but I keep forgetting!

Glad you had a nice relaxing weekend. Candy corn is my absolute favorite halloween candy. :)

Sounds like a marvelous weekend! I'm so jealous you got some mums :) We are still apartment living, so I fulfilled my need to buy them by giving my {soon to be} mother-in-law a happy first day of fall gift! Have a great week! xoxo eliza

Sounds like a great weekend for you. Have you tried a place called "Hillbilly Tea" in L-ville? Heard of it, but haven't had the chance to try it yet.

Sounds like a very wonderful weekend! AND yum yum yum margharita pizza is delish. :) Hope your week ahead is also HAPPY!

Wow! I can't believe you got all those projects done AND had time to relax! What a great way to welcome fall!

Perfect weekend!! Fall is the best and we actually got some here too (read: overcast on Saturday). Suddenly all I want to do is bake apple pie, apple turnovers and all kinds of cookies. Prepare for wide load ahead!! haha!!
