Weekend Recap

What a beautiful fall weekend.  The weather was absolute perfection and my days were filled with wonderful fall things.  Some highlights include ::

  • Wrong turn turning out to be a beautiful tree-lined drive through a new-to-me part of town, windows down and music up.  Love.
  • Pizza + movie date.  We ordered in and watched An American Werewolf in London.
  • More beautiful fall weather enjoyment
  • Fox Hollow Farms fall festival - the drive down Sleepy Hollow was totally worth it.  What a gorgeous strip of land a few miles away.  
  • Pumpkin gelato.  Much to our surprise, we were able to treat ourselves to a few scoops of the best use of pumpkin I have ever tasted.  Here's how to make your own.
  • Roadside pumpkins!
  • We now have a cemetery in our front yard, full of spiderwebs and a skeleton poking through!
  • Fish tacos for dinner followed by pecan waffles for brunch
  • Patio beers
  • Long walks
  • Quiet Sunday nights at home :)

How were your weekends? Most excellent, I hope.  This week is a short one for us because Wednesday afternoon we're hitting the road for a ridiculously long journey to see my family.  I'm so excited to see them all, to enjoy Halloween a bit early and to see my favorite 9-year-old play some football. 

Here's to a great week ahead!
