This and that......


* This past Saturday night I made good on my word and created a little S'mores bar. Nothing fancy, just a few yummy new additions to the traditional Hershey chocolate! The dark chocolate with sea salt and almonds was amazing!! 


* We knocked down the porch screen that screened in a small section of our back porch/deck this weekend and it opened our deck up so much more!! We plan to put a TV on that yellow wall in front of me in the picture below. I can't wait to snuggle by the fire and watch our favorite shows! And looking at this picture I realized our porch needs a good scrub down and another coat of stain. The kids love to color on it with chalk though, so I know it will just look dirty again in no time :) 

Jeans (cuffed because they were too long, but such a good fit :) // Tieks

They also love to dance on the table!! There are so silly, and so fun. I am loving the ages they are at right now!





* I am in love with this zip front jacket! It looks so comfy, yet so chic! Not a bad price for $70.00 either!! 



*Our house has officially been taken over by Halloween decorations and I kinda love it! Taylor gets all giddy every time she walks by the bats! 


* The cabinets in the kitchen are being sprayed tomorrow and should be done by Thursday!!  I am so excited I can't stand it!! I think I confused some of you guys the other day with my lighting post. This is what I meant. 

Do this one over the breakfast table. 



And one like this over the dining room table. 



That being said, now I am kinda loving this one. Oh who knows, I can never make decisions about these things :) 


*Todd and I are skipping our usual dinner on date night tonight and we going to a movie instead. I love the movies. Popcorn, Sour Patch Kids, and Cherry Coke = amazingness! I am pretty pumped too because we are going to see Gone Girl!!! Have you seen it yet? What did you think?




Okay,  that's about all I got for today :)  Happy Tuesday!

  4. Gah!! We saw Gone Girl Sat night and it was awesome! Did you read the book? I thought it was great, but pretty disturbing and the movie was even more tense. Hope you guys like it!

  5. Gone Girl was awesome! They did such a great job of portraying the book and making the movie just as dark and twisted. Have a great date night!

  10. I think the light fixture above your breakfast table now is nice! I do like the idea of something a little more "fancy" in the dining room though. I think I like your first pick the best. Can't wait to see what your kitchen looks like with the new cabinets. Enjoy Gone Girl - I just finished the book and cannot wait to see it!
