Number 1: Mommy and son(s) time!
Hubs was hunting last weekend so it was just me and the boys. We had a fun filled Saturday! We started out at Tiny Tots Tea Room. This was our first time there and I'm glad we finally went! It's geared more for the toddlers, but Nick had fun too. They had TONS of toys, dress up, climbers, a play castle and a "kiddie car roller coaster." They also have an adjoining eating area (so you can still see the kids playing), where you can order lunch, try one of their delicious coffees or teas, or just sit and relax. We will definitely be going there again. After the tea room, we hit 16 Handles and had some delicious FroYo (Nick's request- "I want to go to the place where you can put the worms on your ice cream!"). Then we topped the night off with a movie (Planes 2) and popcorn.
Number 2: My DIY!
I always get so excited when a DIY actually turns out as it is supposed to!! I wanted a banner for our fireplace but couldn't find anything I liked. Enter Pinterest. Honestly, this looks nothing like the pin I found, but I'm still happy with how it turned out. And now I'm inspired to make one for Christmas!
OK, I admit. This one is a little odd. Most people hate how early it gets dark this time of year, and honestly I am usually one of them. But... there is something so cozy about coming home from work in the dark, putting on your PJ's, lighting a candle, and snuggling in for the night!
Number 4: Speaking of candles...
I just got this Yankee candle from a friend at work for a fundraiser her son was doing. It's my new favorite scent! It's reminiscent of an apple cinnamon leaf (if there was such a thing!) Sooo perfect for fall!
Number 5: Christmas pictures!
OK, this is the only one I've seen so far (the photographer happened to post it on her FB page but I don't have any of the pictures yet) but so far I am impressed! She did such a great job with the boys (who were absolutely NOT cooperative during our session)! I am so excited to see how they all turned out!!
That's it! I hope you all have an amazing weekend!!! And thanks for stopping by my blog!
