Mid October Check

Hello friends!
A new week is upon us!  I am so excited for this week! It is going to be a busy week, but a good one.  In a few days I will be heading out of town for a much needed weekend away.
Until then I will be doing what I do here 🙂
Last week started off with a flat tire! Thankfully it was a pretty simple fix thanks to our Costco tires that are still under warranty!

My workouts have been all over the place lately, and 1 of our trio was on a trip, so it was GREAT to be back together working out in the evenings!
img_6101The hubs and I got in a little date night and met some friends for dinner!  So good!  Let me just say the pumpkin cheesecake we split def had me itching to make my own version!  Hope I will get that all worked out soon!

On Saturday I had some free time (a little shocking, I know), and finally tackled a painting project I have been itching to do since July!  Our master bedroom as a drop ceiling.  Soon after we moved into the house I painted it, and HATED it.  I was looking for a slightly darker gray than our wall color, but it was a lot darker than I wanted, and I messed up a few times and it was driving me a little batty each time I looked at it.  If you saw this insta post a few weeks ago you saw the new color I painted our cabinets.  As I was thinking about what I was going to do for our ceiling I had the inspiration to paint it the same color as the bathroom!  And let me tell you how much I LOVE it!  It makes the room come together so well with our dark teal bedding and the other teal accents in the room!  The pics really don’t do justice (so local friends, you are welcome to come over and see it soon!)

 

Saturday night I was blessed to attend a pumpkin party hosted by dear friends! I was able to catch up with dear friends I have not seen in some time.  It was so wonderful to reconnect and just be.  And I painted a cute little pumpkin for the pumpkin decorating contest!  It was a blast and there was some amazing talent in the different categories!
It was so much fun I didn’t realize what time it was and before I knew it, it was almost 1am!

 

Sunday we were blessed to have dear friends who are more like family over for lunch! It was a wonderful time of fellowship and scrumptious food!  They all got to test taste my new recipe and it was a hit!

 

Overall, it was a much better week than last week!

Don’t forget to check out Choctober fest if you missed it on Foodie Friday!  There are some amazingly delicious recipes in the round up that you do not want to miss!

    Gotta love warranty’s! I had my car in the shop last week too and thank goodness it was still under warranty!
    What a fun week, love the Pumpkins! I really need to get on that and buy a Pumpkin or two as well!

    I love what you’ve done with the painting and remodeling! Teal is a great color too! I’ve always been so impressed by the super creative people who both paint and carve those elaborate pumpkins! Thanks for linking, Esther!
