It’s been quite awhile since I’ve had a weekend at home with just me and my Scout-a-Roo.
Even though the Bitch Face Bestie and the Hubby in Law took excellent care of my baby girl while I was gone on vacation, Scout’s been a bit clingy since I’ve gotten home, so I’m sure she’s been appreciating the extra cuddle time.
I meant to get my yard cleaned up a bit for fall, but it’s been cold and drizzly, so I didn’t get any of that done. Hahaha….ooopsy! Maybe tomorrow night, the dried up veggie plants can go out with the garbage.
I did however get my kitchen and bathroom scrubbed down and cleaned up!! It’s amazing…it’s not like it really takes that long once you get down to it, but I just can’t seem to ever motivate myself to do it during the week after I get home from work. When Momma was here a few weekends ago she was vacuuming for me and declared that I needed to scrub my baseboards. I don’t ever recall ever scrubbing baseboards at home growing up, but mine are dark and I suppose the dust shows more…….. So, in an effort to be a responsible home owner, I scrubbed all my baseboards and dusted! Someone should be proud of me!
Friday night was a Halloween housewarming party at BFB and Hubby in Law’s new house! I was a vodka bottle for the…..second, maybe third……year in a row! I mean, if the $20 dress still fits you might as well wear it right?! I decided this year that I would amp up the makeup a bit. I found an inspiration video online that was a fortune teller…..and I decided to make myself a glamazon of a Svedka bottle! I’ve included the link because @alyssamarieartistry is amazeballs, and everyone should watch her Halloween look!
First, you gotta practice…….
Then you just gotta commit and go for it!
The party was so fun, and it was great to get out and see everyone! Even though I got put to work finishing up decorating when I got there and had to ditch my 5 inch heels…..I’m easily appeased with yummy snacks and some of BFB’s homemade cake!
These are my people…..and I love them!
(Also, I’m barefoot in all these pics…..I have a collection of miniature friends!)
I didn’t get any landscaping done this weekend, but I did get dinner made for BFB and the Hubby in Law last night. I cleaned and workout out yesterday, and then took dinner over to their house so we could all watch Game 4 together with all the fur babies! I have yet to turn on my heat, so I’ve been relying primarily on my oven to keep the house at a cozy-ish temperature.
Plus, if you wanna talk about restoring your soul, there is nothing better than fresh outta the oven buns with butter. Life doesn’t get any better than that! Warm buns will make you happier than anything else ever could! Buns, corn chowder, grilled cheeses, and bloody marys made for a pretty excellent Saturday night if I do say so! I’m excited that the weather has started to change so that soup and fresh bread can start making a comeback into my life!
Today has been yoga, coffee, snuggles, and laundry. It’s been nice to just chillax at home, relax, and recharge. After vacation is always a stressful time at work because the samples don’t stop arriving because I leave for a few days. After running around like a headless chicken in the lab all week, relaxing with mugs of coffee and tea while candles burn and Scout snores has been just what the doctor ordered I think!
Hope everyone has been having an excellent, and safe, Halloween weekend!
