Another weekend that has gone by way too quickly! How do we go about instituting 3 day weekends as the norm? Wouldn’t that be amazing! On Saturday I ran a million and one errands and was going, going, going until that evening!
We went out to dinner with Jon’s family to celebrate his dad’s birthday! They came over early to celebrate with the boys first. So, I will admit I hate cake before we even headed out to dinner!
I was feeling fall for my outfit and I wore my favorite new floral dress (It’s seriously amazing. So comfy and chic and cheap!), mustard scarf and an animal print coat! Plus some elephant jewelry. Duh.
On Sunday morning I celebrated losing 2.5 pounds this week by making brownies! What? Isn’t that what you would do?
Always sprinkle a little powdered sugar on box mix brownies! My secret way of making them look homemade. Shh!
I actually made the brownies in the pan size they recommend 8″x8″ and omg! They came out so thick and chewy! Will always bake them in this size pan now!
I picked up A Little Life earlier this month after it was recommended at book club and wow! I was told it was amazing, but really disturbing. It is both. It is beautifully written and an amazing story but there are parts where you are literally on the edge of tears, but know that if you start you won’t stop and also have your stomach turning because you are so upset. I picked up it up constantly this weekend reading a little here or there and stayed up till 1 last night with it. I only have 100 pages left. Go pick up a copy!
In the morning I decided to snap some photos of the front stoop because I had it decorated for fall and then the trim around the door was chipping really badly in one spot so, I asked Jon to fit and that little spot turned into this!
Basically we sanded down the whole door frame area and repainted it all! Our families arrived to go to a Fall festival and Jon was still hanging from a ladder!
We left a base coat driving and headed out to Sands Point Preserve for their Fall festival. It was a beautiful day and the boys had a lot of fun!
We got to pick pumpkins:
Then they had tables set up where you could paint your pumpkins. All of the tables were packed so we set up on the grass.
The grounds are beautiful with views of Hempstead Habor.
They had a small farmers market area set up, a petting zoo, pony rides, hay rides and a food truck area!
It was a fun day out with everyone! We ended our weekend by heading to the beach to hunt for crabs and then to the docks to do a little fishing! Hudson was pretty excited to catch this little guy.
Such a fun weekend! Hope yours was enjoyable as well!
