Halloween Weekend

Monday, November 2, 2015

Happy November!! I am SO excited for this month - our niece is going to be born this week, we'll be heading up so Tallahassee for our annual FSU visit in a few weeks, we're spending Thanksgiving with my in-laws (and new baby!!) and then it's time for Christmas! I am so ready for the holidays :)

This weekend was spent relaxing and getting some things checked off my to-do list. Stephen ended up having to work Saturday so it was pretty low key. Friday we were exhausted so we took a nice walk around the neighborhood and then I dug into one of my Will & Kate books (it's very interesting - I'll post about it once I'm done) while Stephen got some work done.

Saturday, Stephen headed to work while I slept in and then did a little shopping. He did make the comment that he worked and I just went and spent the money - it happens ;) I ran to Hobby Lobby to get some things for a few projects and I was hoping to find some good fall decor on super sale. Guess Hobby Lobby doesn't do blow out fall sales like other stores do because it was the standard 40% off - I didn't end up getting anything :/ I did find a cute fall wreath on sale at Homegoods so I'll call that a win since that was one fall thing I didn't have.

I finished up the afternoon with some reading, football watching and completing my first project - re-doing my bulletin board. I've had this bulletin board since freshman year of college and have been wanting to re-do it for a while. I got a yard of fabric from Hobby Lobby and about 100 brass tacks from Lowes and went to work. I'm really excited with how it turned out but I'm still unsure about which way I want to hang it up... I'll keep you updated! I really underestimated how hard it is to put those tacks in - keeping them straight is such a task and my thumb is killing me but I'm really happe with how it turned out.

Saturday night, we hung out outside and had a blast handing out candy to trick-or-treaters. This was our first Halloween owning a house and thus, handing out candy. I felt like such a creep sitting in the driveway, waiting for kids to arrive but once they started coming, it was a lot better than having to open the doors a million times. After we ran out of candy, we walked around the neighborhood to see the other houses - some people had LEGIT scary houses. I am not kidding you when I say they were super scary. Can't wait to talk around and see Christmas lights in a month!

I have to say, I was super lame and was too lazy to dress up. Stephen wore his NASA jacket and went as an astronaut. There were so many adults that dressed up so we decided that we will definitely join in on the fun next year! I did grab an old textbook and call myself a college student lol

Sunday we went to lunch with some friends after church and decided to relax for a little before doing our chores and working in the yard. I am so thankful that we have a yard but I am not thankful for weeds... can I get an amen? ;)

We are so ready for this exciting week ahead and can't wait for our niece to be born (I know my SIL is dying for her to get here since she's past her due date already). Hope y'all have a great week!

Linking up with Biana.


  1. Sounds like a great weekend! What a fun neighborhood you live in too! Your bulletin board looks really cute and I love your new wreath!

  2. Looks like you had a great weekend! I am not a homeowner yet but the yard work is one thing I am dreading once I am. I don't know how some people think yard work is relaxing....

  3. Such a great idea to just sit in the driveway instead of opening the door nonstop - we may have to do that next year as long as it doesn't rain (or snow haha)! Yay for a new baby niece this week, so exciting!!!

  4. So excited for you with all this excitement ahead! You guys are so cute sitting out to hand out the candy – love that you guys can sit outside and do it – it’s usually chilly up here so kids just ring the doorbell.
