Belated Weekend Recap: BBQ, pumpkins, & other adventures

My weekend was quite enjoyable. Hunter and I relaxed yet got things done. It was a fantastic balance. Let's get on with it, shall we?

Let's get the obligatory dog pic out of the way. This is merely one of the random that are snapped of these beasts, natch:



Winter Garden Farmer's Market y'all. This is a wonderful market with so many awesome vendors. We went for both biz and for pleaz. I was interviewing an artist so when I was done we wandered around for pics and scenery. Gorgeous area, btw. We had some down home deliciousness for lunch, aka Harry and Larry's BBQ. If you ever find your self in the area, don't think twice about this stop. If you don't find your self in the area, find a reason. Their brisket and cole slaw is no joke.



Now this next weekend recap is a special one indeed. Hunty and I purchased new pots and pans. We were gifted a wonderful set of pans when we first moved in together years ago and they have served us well, these cooking instruments. It was time though and we had time so we ventured out and sought out a fabulous set I have been eye balling. Not only were they an amazing sale price but we had an additional discount to apply. They are this fun ombre orange set and we have been cooking just to cook so I can test them out. Love, love, love them. Be still, my domesticated heart...



These are just some of my fave pieces lately:



The weekend winded down with some new publications:

A lovely weekend indeed. Of course to end it, during a late dinner Sunday night I bit down on something and managed to hurt a back moler. Um, owww. Es la vida, no?

Tell me, what makes you happiest in all the land? Until we meet again, M

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T. While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”. Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration: Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better. Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See w

How I Holiday Decor

I love some holiday decor.  It's fun to mix and match consistent pieces for it and and exciting to switch out the ones that have their set calendar time.  Like my pumpkins for example.  I have a set of them that are used for spooky purposes first, then for grateful hearts right after. Let the record show exhibits ... A and A.5: Halloween goodness           Turkey Day decor   Also, let the record show further exhibits of love for Halloween decorating: B: Witch, please C: Even the tissues have monsters on them Oh and D:   Roni hates us, Pepper giggles, we take far too many pictures of this.   If you couldn't tell, my favorite time of year to decorate is for Halloween.  #givemeallthegoblins   I'm pumped to further enjoy this holiday season with high levels of gratefulness and plan to focus on love and happiness more than anything.  Happy beginning of the end of year holiday season and decorating to you and yours!   Until we me
