Halloween Party

31 Oct

On Friday night we had our Halloween party. We had it at my mom’s, in their love shack, where we have all our other parties. No one has a space big enough as of right now to have a party, so we just use my mom’s. But she loves it.

It wasn’t a ton of people but we all dressed up, had a few drinks and snacks, played some games, and had a great time.

Happy Halloween to everyone!

And today I had my first snow day….on Halloween….so crazy.


Fall Fun!

25 Oct

On Sunday, we met up with a couple friends to go pumpkin and apple picking! I love doing seasonal things that are fun and don’t cost too much. I also love spending time with friends.

The girls. ❤

So the pumpkin picking was a tad disappointing because it wasn’t exactly a pumpkin patch. And there weren’t too many to choose from….We found some good ones though.

Pumpkin “Patch”

We rode on a wagon hooked to a tractor to go out to the apples we wanted. We walked to the far end of the orchard, walked through some mud, and found the apples.

The perfect apple.

Then we came back on the tractor and went to the market to get some apple cider. And…I also picked up a whoopie pie because it looked delicious and I cannot say no to whoopie pies. It was a fabulous way to spend a Sunday morning in the fall.

Pinterest Love

19 Oct

So I’m still just as obsessed with Pinterest as ever. I thought I would share some of the things I’ve come across recently that I love. Some awesome DIY projects that I’m thinking might be some good Christmas presents or something.

Empty beer bottles wrapped in yarn. I love these.

Monogram Twine wrapped letter. So pretty.

Love this for an entryway. Maybe when we have a house someday.

Glue on Canvas. You could do so much with this. Designs and words. Endless options.

A wreath made with old ties?? So amazing. I think I have to make one of these.

Pictures on foam core board. Great idea for all the pictures you have without having a million frames around.

There are so many ideas on Pinterest. I could go crazy trying to do everything. I know eventually I will get to all of these projects I want to try.

Slacking off….

17 Oct

Oh man. I have been slacking on this blog. I have been tired and just not feeling up to sitting at my computer. I definitely have some things to post about though. I plan on posting more this week for sure.

We went to Dan’s parents for the weekend for his Gram’s 93rd birthday dinner. I have also been working on my Tinkerbell Halloween costume. Many things to share for sure….coming up starting tomorrow.


Long Weekend Fun

11 Oct

So I have been somewhat absent from the blog for a little while. I was sick last week and busy for the long weekend. But I’m back!

On Saturday we went to the chili fest with a couple friends. The weather was gorgeous. The chili wasn’t that good.

We had to rent these huge spoons for $1 to eat the chili then return them at the end for our $1 back. Couldn’t get smaller spoons??

After the chili fest, we decided to walk around Portsmouth for a bit, grab a drink somewhere, and grab some ice cream. It was a wonderful afternoon with some wonderful friends.

When we got home, Dan and I decided to go for a walk on the beach since it was so nice out. It had been a while since we’d gone for a beach walk. It was gorgeous.

Sunday we met my best friend, who lives over an hour away, for lunch. We also walked around the mall for a bit. Love being able to see her. ❤

The rest of the weekend was spent doing things around the apartment….some cleaning and some work. It was a great weekend overall.

3 Day Weekend

7 Oct

This week was a long week even though it kind felt like it flew by. We started NECAPS this week. We’re doing one test a day, so it will be 8 days long….4 down….4 to go. And I have been sick. On Wednesday, I felt awful at work and went home early. I’m feeling better and better ever day.

Now we have a 3 day weekend and I am soo excited! It is very much needed. The weather is supposed to be amazing. After frost the past 2 mornings, it is supposed be high 70s all 3 days. And we don’t have any big plans, which is fantastic! Hopefully we can get a lot done and have a lot of fun!!

Hopefully everyone enjoys their 3 day weekend!

Halloween Party Inspiration

3 Oct

We are planning a Halloween party for the Friday before Halloween. This is Dan’s favorite holiday and he loves to go all out. Also, at another get together sometime over the summer, it somehow came up that we should all dress as Disney princesses/couples and we decided we should have a Halloween party so we can do just that. I’m not sure if that is still happening…but we’re definitely still having a party. And it will be a blast!

So I have been looking for some decoration inspiration and I have definitely found some great stuff, mostly from Pinterest, of course.

So I found this picture on Pinterest but followed it to Hostess with the Mostess blog, which is amazing. The whole photo shoot is awesome. It would pretty much be my dream Halloween party.

And I found the Anders Ruff Etsy shop from which you can buy the printables from this shoot. And I bought them. I think they are fantastic.

Anyway, I know our party will be fun no matter what we come up with for decorations.
