A Laying Low Weekend

By September 23, 2011September 27th, 2011Food, Weekend


Happy weekend and first day of fall! It is by far our favorite season and seemingly always the busiest. There are tailgates, weddings, Oktoberfests and Halloween feels like it is just around the corner. This weekend however, we’re laying low and working around the house. I’ve also got a mountain of homework. We also have a puppy play date and a nice BBQ on the deck planned. So a low-key but fun weekend, and I can’t wait!


Last week I planted mums for the first time. I told Neil for years that when we finally bought a house I would plant mums every fall, and being that we’re homeowners there seemed no better time like the present. I always talked myself out of them while we were renting because fall is typically short and I’m overly practical, to a fault sometimes. I chose some beautiful purple and yellow mums and planted them in warm grey pots. Now we just need a wreaths for the doors!

Anyhow, the reason I popped in tonight is because I’ve always loved how many bloggers do Friday posts on the ditties they’ve come across on the web over the past week. I know we have the highly addicting Pinterest for that, but I still like reading the posts. Therefore, I thought I’d share some things that we’ve been loving on the web this week.

Cool things we found this week:
