Show Us Your Life: Fall Decorations & "Weekend" Update
So I'm FINALLY linking up with Kelly's Korner to show off my fall decorations. We don't have a lot and they're definitely not as spectacular as some of the ones that have linked up with her blog- but their kitschy, and their fun and they suit our teeny, little, vintage town house, and they're ours, and we love them.
(I was watching re-runs of Grey's Anatomy on Lifetime)
(I noticed after taking this that our cabinet is super unorganized.....oh well...we aren't perfect)
This little scarecrow pumpkin is on one of our end tables and our dining room table is super spooky/cute but I didn't get a picture of it (must have been stacked with mail per the usual)
Over the cabinets in the kitchen:
Front Door: (there are also stick on leaves on the door below the wreath that you can't see)
Ben made these tombstones for us a year ago and yes we have them for our fur babies as well.
We don't rake the leaves around them to give it a more authentic/spooky feel (don't mind Boo's cigarette butt down there ...ugh the bain of my existance!)
Look Up! A big spider is gonna get ya!
A little ghostie lives in the rocking chair on the porch
I do love our neigborhood in the fall.....
So many trees, so many colors.
Leaves wrap around both banisters
And adorn the back of the bench in the upstairs hallway (I LOVE that bench! We got it for free from Ben's brother- it needs to be repainted but the seat opens up for storage- which we all need!) And that's it for the decor! If that's all you came for you can stop reading now. If you're here for all the good stuff- keep reading!
This Friday Ben and I had a sorta date. By sorta I mean we made plans for a date but then invited my friend Emily to come out with us to dinner at Chilis.
I took my own picture because I thought my hair looked exceptionally shiny and pretty.
Boo and I outside of Chilis
Emily and I enjoying our drinks
Emily and I at the bar for a nightcap afterwords (Ben went over to a friend's - see that's why it was a sorta date)
I got home around 11:30 and went right to bed to be up for work in the morning. Saturday and Sunday flew by because I had to work but I arrived home Sunday to the gang already good and comfy for the Bengals vrs. Bears. Good and comfy and sipping cocktails made of this:
Three Olives Bubble Vodka. Its bubblegum flavored!!! Mix it with 7up and its an amazing little drink. Consider it officially recommended to you all!
So we all had cocktails and watched the Bengals stomp the Bears 45-10: Bengals. Who Dey!
Afterwards we were all feeling a bit loopy: here I am trying on Will's crazy hat...
Today I was off but I have to admit the day was a bust. So many plans fell through including finding the perfect pumpkin. The only things that were successful were grocery shopping and custome fitting my vampire teeth...
Now its dinner time and then time for TV and getting started on my bustle for Halloween. Hope everyone had a fab weekend and has an even fabber week! 4 more days until Halloween!
In my most simple form I am an explosion of endearing quirks and delightfully glamorous tendencies. Some of my most wonderful talents and qualities include but of course are not limited to: cracking an egg with one hand, applying mascara without a mirror, freakishly perfect and neat printing skills, a completely unashamed love for incredibly girly and sometimes questionably un-adult things (if my choice of paper clips happens to be silver or pink- I'm always going to go for the pink) a never-ending devotion to all things stationary (planners, notepads, greeting cards, post-it notes)My love of both The Girls Next Door and John and Kate + Eight and desire to live both lifestyles simultaneously (well, with far fewer children than 8!) an admitted addiction to cosmetics,lotions, and potions, and of course the pretty fingers that type the thoughtful words that bring this blog to you today-XOXO!
