Hello hello! Haaaaaaappy weekend, with many “oi!’s” and much much love and oh my goodness, thank goodness for the goodness of the weekend. I’m so glad it’s finally Friday! We’ve got pumpkin patches, apple festivals, and fancy restaurant reservations. Oh, and many bottles of wine to carry us through (1 down, 3 to go!)
It’s gonna be a good weekend . . .
Le Love List:
1. My In-Laws Visiting
One of the little things I love about having house guests is that I get to buy the fancy-pants coconut creamer, which I won’t justify for just myself and which I shouldn’t be drinking all the time anyways, but which I do so adore and which makes my coffee ever so tasty. Yay!
2. My In-Laws Visiting
One of my favorite things about having house guests is the cleaning frenzy that the event always inspires. Bathrooms are sparkling, stovetop has been scoured with baking soda, and downstairs carpet has finally been vacuumed (oh man that was way overdue). A very clean house is so very nice. Yay!
3. My In-Laws Visiting
Oh hey, did I also mention that my in-laws are freakin’ rad? (I am so lucky) (but then, Damian is awesome so it makes sense that he comes from awesome roots) We always have fun and play and relax and debate and take long long walks and laughter and laughter and yes, lots of laughter. They are spectacular people and I am so happy that they’re here. YAY!
Also! my very first xgfx cake project which is delicious, the frosting failure of said cake project that I was able to laugh off (at least the baked part – the hard part – was successful!), self-discovery, walks with my girlfriends, finding the Portland Rhododendron Garden and how amazingly incredibly beautiful it is, the words “marry me” written it white rocks at the bottom of a crystal-clear shallow pond, snuggling my doggies in a big puppy pile on the couch, quiet dinners all by myself (!!!) (did you catch that?? by! my! self!), being myself and being authentic and trying to figure out who the hell “myself” is . . .
Alright guys, now it’s your turn – tell me what you’re loving this week!
My darlings, this happy little post will stay at the top of the page
all weekend until tomorrow because it’s MoFo time y’all, and I’m still POSTING EVERY DAY! However . . . stop by any time to leave your Love List, ask a question, or offer some feedback! Or if you’re new, please introduce yourself and say ‘Oi!’! This is your community, so get involved!
What are you doing this sweet autumn weekend? Whatever it is, I hope that you’re making your very own magic!
