Weekend Highlights

Hey guys! I'm comin' at ya a little bit later than normal today because I have the morning off of work--I'm still working from home on this teacher workday, but I didn't have to get up with an alarm so I took it easy getting into the day. Sometimes having a post ready and linking up takes a back seat. This morning was just that and I'm totally ok with it!

My weekend was SUPER productive!
My weekend highlights included:

-Having our first-ever trick-or-treaters! Cooper was all about it

-MG was super cute with all of the little kids who came to the door. Love!

-Went to our friends' house for a glass of wine and then walked over to the street I used to live on, that really does it up for Halloween. Here's a peak of just some of the awesomeness:

-Saturday was a cold and super windy day. MG and I painted our entryway, and realized the color was just not dark enough, so we went back to get a shade darker and we are IN LOVE with it. It feels so home-y now. 
We still need a runner and new rug at the front door, but we're getting there!
-We also did the finishing touches on the guest bedroom and I am SO happy with it. I can't show you just yet because I'm waiting for the comforter I ordered to get here (Tuesday), and complete it. I'll reveal then!

-MG and I both desperately needed a massage after all of that painting and house projecting. I had it scheduled for the perfect time.

-I think the paint fumes of painting all day got to me and I ended up with a pretty bad headache which kept me in from going to a friend's party. Sad face.
Thai food take out and couch time were my medicine.

-Sunday we ran errands, installed a light in the entry hallway that we ended up not loving, and then watched football. My Skins lost, but it was to the Vikings, and our friend Kev is a coach for them so I wasn't SO sad about it (after all, I don't know anyone personally on the Skins team whose livelihood depends on a win).

-Made pasta fagioli in the crock pot--perfect, hearty soup for the chilly, windy weather we were having

-I gave myself a nice little manicure and I'm super happy with it

-Had a more than hour long text exchange with my work bestie (she's the best)

-Fell asleep watching RHONJ reunion

-Woke up without an alarm this morning

It was a great weekend overall! We got lots done and still got in some relaxing time. I can't wait to share the finished guest room with you, hopefully later this week!
I hope your weekend was just what you wanted :)
