How is it that this is the last Friday in October!? I can't get over the fact that we're officially into holiday season and only have 2 months left of 2016! I am so excited for what's ahead - hosting my niece's 1st birthday party, a long weekend to Nashville, TN, heading to my parents for Thanksgiving and of course, everything that comes along with December and Christmas!
A giant picture of my boss's face has been floating around the office and the other day we came in to it taped to one of the Halloween decorations. He keeps joking and saying it's skinny Chris lol!
Stephen's been traveling this week and I'm so glad he's coming home today! However, when Stephen's not home, I'm super productive because I just want to hang out with him when he is home. I switched over our summer/fall clothes, ironed an entire pile of clothes, caught up on This is Us (with lots of tears from this week's episode..) and cleaned up the house some.
One of the fun things I was able to do was go to happy hour without having to worry about getting home by a certain time. Last night we went to a sushi place for happy hour - sushi and Korean tacos!
I never go out, so it had to be documented
Earlier this week, we got busted by the HOA for taking out 2 pine trees (that could've easily come right through the house) and a dead/diseased holly tree. They forced us to plant 3 more trees so Stephen ran out and grabbed 3 palms - we planted them in the corner of the yard and we actually like them! Guess it didn't end up being too bad of a thing ;)
FiveI'm so excited I was finally able to share an adorable blanket that I made for my best friend who's due with her first baby in a few days! I'm so happy she loved it!
I hope everyone has a great weekend! We have all sorts of things planned - (hopefully) going to a pumpkin patch, carving said pumpkin, a baby shower, a church celebration, planting fall flowers, getting the house cleaned for our niece's birthday party and finally pressure washing our driveway and sidewalks. We'll see how much we get done...
