the first Fall weekend

Mingle 240
relaxed at home with wine and homemade meatloaf, people magazine and I watched hawaii five0 and blue bloods

weekend cleaning
coffee with Bestie P and I bought two tops from Von Maur
then I went downtown for the night and met up with Besties B and M for Chicago's Oktoberfest! Such a fun night!!

Sixteen Candles closed out the night--what a cool 80s cover band!!

Mass then brunch with my parents and twin sister at one of our Aunt and Uncle's. Then I made dinner and started packing for my weekend trip to Omaha!!

Happy Monday!

1. The official start of Fall!

2. Brought out my brown boots and new Fall purse :)

3. Brunch with Lovebugs 1 and 2...we were all off of school/work on Thursday.

4. Baking pumpkin cinnamon scones.

5. Reading The Girl You Left Behind by JoJo Moyes
Beautiful and so easy to be immersed in the tragic yet moving story lines and characters.

Fall Swap 2014


I was matched up with the sweet Suzanna!

I loved picking out the items for her swap package (a scarf,purple nail polish,a box of cinnamon cake mix,a cute shirt for her baby boy and a toy for her baby#2 and some dark chocolate m&ms).

And she sent me an awesome box of Fall goodies,too!

Another successful swap! I love the blog world :)


Friday: I took care of this one,we went to Target (his idea,seriously) then we had ice cream for dinner (Aunt of the year,right here!) and wen back home for a walk with the dog,playing Batman and bed. 

Saturday:usual cleaning of the house,coffee with Bestie P and B! I took a nap,did some reading and had beer and pizza for dinner.

Sunday: church,relaxing and reading :)
